Reviews

9.3 Happitots Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.282)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Happitots 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happitots Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.74 for Happitots Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (153 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.74

  • 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 4.542 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happitots Day Nursery is based on 9 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 16.6 positive Reviews (83 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 16.6 Target = 0.542

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

My daughter has been going to Happitots since October 2017 and she absolutely loves it. She instantly settled in a couple of days and looks forward to going there every day which is the most important thing for me as a mother. The staff are lovely and always ready to help. The regular updates and observations on the parent zone app is a great addition to have!

Following our son starting school this year, we cannot thank Happitots enough for their support, guidance and teachings in his early years. They have helped to provide essential skills that have been noticed by our son’s current teachers. The caring environment of Happitots has given our son great foundations and confidence for his new educational journey.
Our daughter currently attends the preschool and we can already see the brilliant effect that Happitots is having on her development. The staff’s interaction with the children is fantastic and they are always welcoming, friendly and positive. It is clear to see that the staff truly care for the children and I couldn’t recommend Happitots highly enough.

Staff are friendly and interact well with the children throughout the day. My son was settled in very quickly and has been very happy at Happitots.
There is excellent structure to the day with both free play and specific sessions in music and French.
The staff have an excellent rapport with the children, whilst instilling early discipline.
Themed weeks keep things interesting for the children and encourage different activities in arts and crafts, which my son is always extremely proud of.
The food is good too!

My youngest Granddaughter who is now 2, has attended Happitots since she was a baby. She is a happy little girl and loves going to nursery. The staff are very attentive and caring. My Granddaughter attends nursery 3 mornings a week.
My eldest Granddaughter who is now at school attended the pre-school where she developed and learned ready for the step up to school.
The staff were brilliant and could not recommend them highly enough.

Happitots is an excellent nursery. My daughter attends 4-5 days/week and always comes home saying she's had 'lots and lots of fun'! The staff are all friendly and professional, they engage with the children and involve them in lots of developmental activities.

We are 100% happy with Happitots. Our son is always happy from what we see on the portal and his development is obvious from what we see at home. He loves the staff - especially the male member of staff - and my wife and I think having a male member of staff is great as it gives our son a male influence.

My daughter has been at Happitots for nearly three months now and she loves it. The staff are all really caring and you can see that they genuinely love the children and really take pride in their jobs. Helping the children to learn and explore. They do lots of activities and even learn some French (before she's even talking.) She regularly comes home in different clothes, usually the sign of a good day playing in sand/water/garden and she is always happy and full of smiles when I drop her off and pick her up. Would happily recommend to anyone.

Our son has been at Happitots Day Nursery for 10 months now and is very happy there! He is excited when we drop him in the morning and wants to stay and play when I come to collect him. The staff always communicate with us if they have any questions and when they felt he was ready for a change. I feel that sending our son to nursery has greatly supported his social development. I never worry about leaving our son as I know he is happy and safe.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for the last 2 and a half years. The staff here are amazing and always go the extra mile for the children. The food is cooked on site fresh each day by the nurseries own cook. I am genuinely impressed by the commitment the staff have. My daughter loves the french lessons and great little movers. She always has a great time and some days doesn't want to come home when I pick her up because she has so much fun at nursery!

We have been coming to Happitots since our son was 6 months old. They have always been very supportive and flexible which is a great support to me being in full time work. I find they always communicate well with us about what is happening and whats coming up. The only part that needs improving is the car park and road to preschool.
