Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading is one of the first opened by Hungry Caterpillars and has built a fantastic reputation over the years.

It is located within Yeading Community Centre in its own secure part of the building and offers a range of flexible sessions for children from 3 months to 5 years.

The nursery is the group's biggest, but not too big and is always bursting with life and full of fun for the children.

A fantastic feature of Yeading is its amazing outdoor space and especially the forest garden. Children love learning outdoors and enjoy regular Forest School sessions including tending their allotment, making mud pies and hunting for bugs.

The nursery is set within a beautiful park in addition to the garden and the children make lots of visits there too.

Children also enjoy weekly French lessons, musical movement sessions and local outings which broaden the children’s view on the world.

The nursery has great links to all local feeder schools and works hard to support children with transition, when the time comes.

Reviews

6.6 Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading has a Review Score of 6.6 (6.617)

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.542 for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading is calculated as follows: ( (30 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.542

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 2.075 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400 , then divided by 2 = 0.200

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I have visited all the nurseries in my area but this one I loved most because it's safe and had big space the children to run around and play plus the garden outside is huge so kids will not feel stuck in one place or bored. All my 3 children have been going to this nursery for the last 3 years and will be there another 2 years. Food is freshly cooked the girls are lovely and the manager is very nice and helpful.

Olivia Foley, Director at Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Yeading responded to this review on 30 Sep 2016:

Thank you so much for your positive comments, we really appreciate your feedback.

My son always comes home smiling from nursery! A warm and friendly place with a good range of activities that covers the curriculum without making it seem tedious. A great environment that encourages children to be independent and confident.

My daughter has been attending the Yeading branch for 2 months now and I cannot express how amazing the girls there have been. They made the transition so easy for both my daughter and I knowing I was an over worried mother who works a fair distance away. The staff have been on point and I am able to call throughout the day and receive honest feedback on how the day has gone and the past few weeks I have a very independent little girl who is happy and had become creative bringing home paintings and a foot printed fathers day card! the kids play out twice a day and the food is also very nutritional. She is loving her time at nursery and I go to work feeling fully confident without any worries. My daughter is clean on collection and always full which is great! Each child is different and the staff are fantastic at adapting to each individual child and knowing what they like and dislike. My daughter has also started establishing how make small friendships which is lovely to see. Great job!

Hungry Caterpillars in Yeading is a great nursery and the staff are amazing and very welcoming. My daughter has settled in very well here. As a parent you always worry if your child is getting the right care but I am very happy with my choice.
