Sunninghill Day Nursery is located in the heart of the village, and was formerly a chapel which has been converted and equipped specifically as an extended day care nursery.

In November 2015, the nursery was rated by Ofsted as Outstanding in all four areas: leadership and management; quality of teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare and then overall outcomes for children.

The baby and toddler room at the nursery provides opportunities for children to enjoy messy play and various sensory activities, including: painting, crazy soap and gloop. All activities are supervised by the staff at all times and children can also use this same area to interact with staff and their peers from a young age during meal times.

The pre-school room provides children with a multi-level soft play gym to support their physical development, while children can learn through play within a free-flow environment and make use of a wide range of resources and activities, encouraging them to learn new skills daily.

Reviews

9.3 Sunninghill Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.312)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Sunninghill Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunninghill Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.717 for Sunninghill Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.717

  • 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 4.595 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunninghill Day Nursery is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.595

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

I couldn't ask for a better start in life for my child than at Sunninghill Day Nursery. The staff are so welcoming and attentive. The encouragement and attention that they seem to show each child individually is impressive. It's like one big family. The management and staff are very helpful and accommodating, my son loves it there.

We were initially concerned with the lack of garden. However, relieved to know that the children get to play in the nearby fields.
Our daughter seems very settled now and finds it a treat to go to her nursery.

Our 12 month old settled straight in. The house visit definitely helped, no drama at drop off. Flexible when we've needed it on pick up.
3.5year old was initially anxious from previous upset elsewhere but all the staff were really kind and helped him (which helped us) to settle.
Now he talks about his teachers all weekend and runs up to the door.
He loves 'Forest School', water/sand and soft play.
Thanks for all your efforts.

-Development has come through at an increased rate after starting nursery. Communicates better, plays in groups and follows instructions.
-Would be good to get some different breakfast options other than toast and cereal e.g crumpets/bagels etc.
-Please publish weekly meals.
-Very friendly staff.
-New renovations look very nice and tidy.
-Settling in sessions are very helpful although need them to be longer than 4 hours.
-Overall we are pleased with our child's progress at the nursery and happy she likes being there ! :)

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. I was terrified of sending my son to nursery but this was the only place I felt the staff really really cared. This initial trust has been justified a hundred times over, it's such a fantastic environment, he loves being there and eats everything they serve up with relish. In addition, they've dealt with all manner of dramas from finding lost comforters, to dealing with a full blown allergic reaction with competence, professionalism and kindness.

The staff are kind and polite, they make you feel welcome, have a good bond with their key children, are flexible and follow parents wishes and requests. The nursery provides a different range of activities to stimulate the children they also go on walks in a bus like push chair, which my child loves. They take plenty of photos for you to see what your child has been doing.

I have nothing but praise for my daughters nursery. The management are gorgeous, enthusiastic individuals who handle all situations in a professional and appropriate manner. The nursery staff are just delightful and communicate amazingly with us (parents), keeping us informed of the day they've had, as well as sleep, food/fluid intake etc.
The facilities are great but would benefit from more outdoor space - in saying this the staff do take the children out a lot to facilitate this. I love Sunninghill Nursery

A fantastic nursery. I have two very happy boys there. Staff are full of endless creative ideas of things to do with the children, Don't be put off by the lack of outdoor spaces, daily walks in the village learning road safety, going to the post office and shops teaches them far more. Very efficient with paper work, bills etc.

Both my daughters have been to this nursery. The staff are friendly, approachable and caring. Due to my work, days often change and the manager has been flexible with this. Both my girls came away from the nursery with knowledge and good manners, which I feel is reinforced by the staff. The nursery is a happy and positive environment for all the children and I would/have recommended it to friends. Although the nursery does not have a large outside space, they use the village and park near by to their advantage and I feel these are good experiences for the children.
