Reviews

9.3 Hazebrouck Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.272)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hazebrouck Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.887 for Hazebrouck Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (149 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.887

  • 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 4.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hazebrouck Day Nursery is based on 7 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 18.2 positive Reviews (91 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18.2 Target = 0.385

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

My son has only just started at Hazebrouck Nursery in September 2017, but the staff have all been so caring and supportive in helping to settle him in over the last few weeks. It has really helped my transition back to work knowing that he is in good hands and that he has developed a close bond with his key worker already. The nursery have also been fantastic at dealing with his food allergy and ensuring that he is well catered for at meal times with tasty alternatives when he cannot have the same food as the rest of the children.

Both my children attend Hazebrouck and I have nothing but praise for the manageress and the team. My 3-year-old loves the Nursery and in the two years he has been going, he has learnt so much while having a great time. My younger son is just settling in but I feel so confident leaving him knowing he is in safe hands.

My favourite things about Hazebrouck are the team approach, where all the children are happy with any member of staff and the amount of structured outdoor time and play. They are also great at setting realistic goals and helping children develop new skills.

They were also fantastic with my eldest son who was dairy intolerant and egg allergic- not a single slip up.

Our daughter joined the nursery in January 2016 at seven months old, she attends two full days a week, she loves all the staff and her highlight is French with Maddam every week. It's very reassuring how all the staff know the children individually and are always very friendly and helpful keeping us updated with what happens daily and the parents evenings to discuss how they are moving forward educationally. We chose the nursery because of all the outside space and the children go outside all year round. All meals are cooked on site and they are encouraged to try a wide variety of foods. As parents, we are very pleased with how our daughter is developing and we now have a very sociable two-year-old that will mix with children of all ages and happily try different foods.

My daughter joined at ten months old back in July and has settled really well. She has adapted to the nursery routine very quickly and is now happy to see the staff at drop-off time. The team are always welcoming to us and the learning objectives are being met. We are pleased with both her general well-being and her educational needs.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. My children, who are now 21 months and 4 years old, have been coming here since they were babies and are really happy. The staff are really caring and the management team are truly efficient and easy to deal with. The outside space is great and the children adore French with Madame and Great Little Movers. The staff really take time and trouble to get to know the children and there is real attention to detail and a personal touch to the care given.

My daughter started a year ago for two half days to begin with, now she is very sociable, she has been learning songs in french and it is beautiful to hear her saying words and recognising colours and numbers. I love the rooms full of colours and art on the wall made by the children.
We don't have pets at home but at Hazebrouck she is learning how to look after animals and she is always talking about the tortoise and rabbits.
The staff is friendly and always keen to help something that I like is that always smells and looks clean.

Hazebrouck have provided brilliant care for our daughter. She joined at 8 months and quickly adapted.All staff are friendly and have taken the time to get to know our daughter. It is obvious she enjoys her time there. The staff have been brilliant at adapting to our daughters needs before and after surgery. They've managed her spica cast very well Would highly recommend them.

I can't tell what a relief it was to find this place. From the first upset phone call to find a new place for my son after a failed attempt at a previous unrelated nursery, they have been unendingly supportive.
My son has thrived here, he's so happy and settled. I'll be honest they are all leaning towards crazy here, but in the best way (great continuity between home and here!!). It's lively, fun and educational. The manager and the deputy are the dynamic duo. The manager comes up with amazing ideas and the deputy implements them, and the ladies are all lovely and proud to work here. No in-fighting and such a positive welcoming environment.
They are also really lucky with the physical space they have here which is definitely something that has helped my son.
I've already recommended to a friend who has settled her daughter here too.

The Hazebrouck staff are brilliant and genuinely love babies/children. I saw a jump in my daughter's development pace and confidence since she started nursery about 8 months ago. I like the way they set the next step which helps you see your child's progress.
First time leaving my child was not easy but I was certain that she will be loved and looked after well. They provide nutritionally balanced fresh food cooked on site.

The nursery has so much to offer at each stage of a child's development. The sensory room, music and computer room and soft play is only few of the features that makes the nursery stand out. My daughter loves French on Wednesdays with Madame and insists us to put the same music on at home. Their Parent Portal is amazing and allows us to see at our desks what our daughter is doing as day progresses.
The nursery is very specious inside and outside and has a nice garden suitable at each stage. My daughter absolutely loves the nursery and refuses to go home every evening!

The management team at Hazebrouck have introduced many improvements and developments within the nursery this year which our son as thrived on. This nursery is outstanding and our son runs up to the door every morning and cant wait to begin is fun packed day. The care and attention he receives is excellent and we have complete trust in Hazebrouck to offer him the very best care available.

His learning and development continues to surprise us which is particularly noticeable when we see other children of similar age who are home raised. The opportunities offered to him on a daily basis far surpasses our expectations and we take tremendous pleasure is seeing his development flourish.

The staff at Hazebrouck are very professional, caring and clearly take pride in the work they do with all the children. The relationships they create and build with each child is essential and our son thrives on this care. It has really helped develop his character and personality into a very happy and sociable child.

Management of the nursery is exceptional. There have been some lovely new changes to the nursery with additional equipment, toys and furniture inside plus a redevelopment of the large outside play garden which now includes a regular forest school which our son loves so much.

Each day we receive an email 'Day in the life' report of all the activities he has participated in plus what food he has consumed at each meal. We love receiving this and looking through all the photos from the day to see what he has been up too.

Hazebrouck offers a variety of activities beyond that of normal playtime. There is a fully equipped sensory room, lots of animals for the children to enjoy and help care for (rabbits, guinea pigs and a tortoise). There are weekly French lessons from Madame and a vast array of scheduled activities each day for the children to develop essential skills and learn from. In addition events are planed throughout the year which parents can also get involved with including a fate, Halloween party, nativity play and visits from the emergency services to show off their vehicles to the children which they absolutely love.

Having viewed several day nurseries, Hazebrouck stood out for us as the very best safe environment we could send our child too. We could not recommend it highly enough.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough! The Manager and the team at Hazebrouck Day Nursery could not have been more hospitable to mine, and more importantly, my daughter's needs. They were so friendly, very personable and carried out all of our individual wishes with a smile. My daughter has developed so much quicker than all of my friends who are full time parenting and I truly believe this was down to the girls in Baby Explorers and the work they do in there with the children. The nursery is always busy, with great activities and even a French teacher which I personally think is amazing! There is so much to do both inside and out, especially outside, and they send you a personalised report every day with photos which my husband and I found really informative and very entertaining. If you are thinking of sending your child to the nursery, please go and meet everyone, and have a look at how much work they are doing there; there will be no doubt in your mind it is the right place for your child!

Our daughter has developed enormously in her 10 months at Hazebrouck - a great range of indoor and outdoor activities and all the staff are very pro-active and friendly. She is very happy here and gained a lot of confidence. Loves the French on Wednesday afternoons with Madame!

We really value the nutritious hot meals and snacks prepared daily on site, no doubt best for both brain and body.

Recent parents evening not only told us her strengths and weaknesses but it was clear they knew her very well and worked towards her progress individually as well as her group in general.

Wish I'd had all this at her age.

My son loves attending Hazebrouck Day Nursery. He gets really excited when we get out of the car as he knows he is going to have a day of fun with other children & not forgetting the Nursery pet animals! there is a good mix of activities on offer and events that parents are invited to like parent evenings & summer fete.
I love receiving a day in the life report which is emailed to me daily, where I can see what fun activities he has been doing. Included in this report is what he has eaten, how many nappy changes & how long he slept for, it is a comprehensive report with photos.
I can't thank the Manager & her excellent staff team enough, they are caring, committed & genuinely all care about my son's development. My son loves his key worker & that makes me happy when I am at work I know he is well cared for & loved.
