Play & Learn Day Nursery pride themselves on the personal approach that staff have with parents and children alike. They create a close relationship with children, parents and carers so they all feel welcome.

The nursery has a homely feel to the building which helps with the first days of children settling in. Sitting in the middle of 0.3 acres, the nursery has four main rooms to cater for children from birth to five-years of age; babies, one-to-twos, toddlers and a pre-school room.

In two of the rooms the nursery has a sensory area (colourful interactive motion lighting and mirrors), which all children enjoy and is especially interesting for those with special educational needs (SEN).

In all of the rooms, to encourage and promote the use of independence, the resources are stored at a low level for children’s easy access. Furthermore, all the rooms also have dedicated areas for nappy changing or toilets, depending on age. Educationally, the nursery offer a wide range of activities to individuality support all the children.

Play & Learn Day Nursery have a large outdoor garden area, equipped with a large climbing frames, large playhouses, and a dedicated sheltered and reading area, as well as lots of climbing equipment.

When setting out the garden for the day, staff ensure that all the learning opportunities provided inside are fully promoted and easily accessed in the garden. The pre-school room has very large opening double French doors, that give direct access (and a nice view) to the garden, so free- flow access to outdoors is fully encouraged – a greatly appreciated bonus by the children with lots of energy.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Play & Learn Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.906 for Play & Learn Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.906

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Play & Learn Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

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

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

The nursery is an excellent place for kids to be. Since my daughter joined them, I have been impressed with her toilet training, speech and the way she paints.
Well done to all the staff.

Since attending the nursery my nephew has learnt so much, and he has become so confident in everything he does. The staff have been great with his dietary needs and always on hand to offer support and help with potty training.
He loves going into nursrery and often its fight to get him to go home! Staff are amazing and are teaching him so much and always have detailed feedback of what he has been up to.

Having removed our son from another nursery in the local area due to unease with the level of care being provided, we have been delighted with our experience at Play and Learn Nursery. Our son has become more confident since he started there and the staff show a genuine interest in the children's learning and development.
They take the time to provide us with feedback on the time that our son has spent with them, which is reassuring as he is not yet at an age where he can fully communicate about his activities or any concerns. The staff have worked with us to manage any specific care requirements that we have, which has been greatly appreciated.
Whenever we arrive to collect our son all of the children seem vibrant and content. We would highly recommend this nursery.
