The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) 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 35 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.902 for Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) is calculated as follows: ( (386 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 419 Ratings = 4.902

  • 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 4.302 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) 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 23.2 positive Reviews (116 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 23.2 Target = 0.302

  • 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 settled really well after a rocky start. She has a good bond with the staff, especially her key person. The observations are lovely to read.

My son has been at Green Park Day Nursery full time since he was 10 months old; he is now 4. My son has adored the nursery, they are very creative and keep the children safe and entertained! The staff there have done a great job of moulding my son into a polite, caring and sensible little boy. He would not be so advanced, had he not gone to this nursery.
The nursery has a family feel, I can honestly say, I trust the staff at Green Park Day Nursery wholeheartedly. As with all places, there are a few minor improvements that could be made:
Toilets can get quite messy and isn't always cleaned quickly.
Sometimes there is too many temp staff on duty, and children aren't cared for as well. (The full-time staff treat the children like their own, temp just do their job)
They can't discipline the children, so occasionally this leads to a wild child causing havoc for the other children.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend Green Park Day Nursery to anyone thinking of joining, my son has truly enjoyed his time there and we are sad to say bye!

Mandy Cooper, project manager at Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) responded to this review on 15 Sep 2017:

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you have had such a positive experience with us over the last 3 years.

Your suggestions for improvement are greatly welcomed. Our children’s toilet is a busy room and we appreciate it can get a bit messy at times. We are currently recruiting for a domestic assistant to help with the ongoing cleaning of the whole nursery during the day to ensure our practitioners can focus on the learning and education of our children. Our cleaners will then thoroughly clean the nursery overnight ready for the next day.

At times we do use relief staff to support the core team to cover staff holidays or absence. Whilst we know how important relationships are with staff and children we try to use the same relief staff to provide a level of consistency within the nursery.

Our Golden Values are used to support children’s behaviour through a positive reinforcement method and all of our staff undertake behaviour management training. We also work closely with parents to ensure every child has consistency between nursery and home.

Green Park have been amazing settling my 2 children into nursery. They both love it! Really great activities for my 5-month-old and 3-year-old. They are meeting all of our needs every day. A big thank you!

Over the past 3 years, both of my sons have attended Green Park Day Nursery. From caterpillars to preschool we were very pleased with the staff, food and most importantly the care they gave. Nothing is perfect and when we did have an issue with potty training in preschool I was pleased that on making a formal complaint the issue was addressed immediately. I would highly recommend Green Park Day Nursery to my friends and family.

My son had a few settling in sessions before Christmas of which I put him in for full days rather than a few hours, which I found worked better. Since starting full time at the start of January he has come on leaps and bounds.
All the staff are extremely friendly, polite and helpful and they are all very good at what they do. My son's key worker always gives me an overview of the day's activities and what my son has been up to.
He went through a stage of being upset in the mornings when I left him, but the staff always encouraged him to take part in activities which soon took his mind off the reason he was upset.
He is always extremely happy when I collect him and I know he would've had a good day - every day.
The range of activities that is offered is second to none, he is currently enjoying learning about space and planets.
I would highly recommend this nursery, it is way above any of the others I viewed.

Our daughter has been going to the nursery since March this year and all this while the experience has been very good; our key person takes good care and attention to our daughter and her efforts are well supplemented by other members of the team. The app is also very good and it is populated quite regularly, and in a detailed manner which provides a nice picture of the day our daughter experienced.

Very good day nursery. I am confident our daughter was very well looked after, she made many friends, learnt to be ready for school (counting, writing some letters) being independent in the toilet (eating by herself). I would recommend it to anyone.

I would recommend all nurseries follow this nursery's good practices. The child's need are always paramount. In the time since February, I have not had any problems in the mornings as there is always such a happy greeting awaiting the children. The nursery staff very much involve you in what the child's activities have been during the day. A full update on what the child has eaten, how long the child has slept is given. Children have good hydration as their own water bottles are always cleaned, filled and in reach of the child.
The toys are appropriate to the child's age and books and music can be often heard at story time or nursery rhymes songs and actions by the children. They are happy and eager to sing along. Staff always know their first name and always professional and friendly. Special thanks to all staff who do an amazing job with our precious children. Thanks to all the lovely staff who start our days with a smile. You're all pretty amazing.

My son joined in Sept 12 and leaves Sept 16. In this time he has developed into an independent, smart and caring boy. I trust the nursery on every level. I have never worried when dropping him off and leaving him every day. I always return to a content and exhausted little boy, full of tales and stories.
From a practical point of view, the nursery offers a fantastic service. The extended hours make a huge difference, helping us maintain a worklife balance. The quality of the food that is served is always good. The variety has helped our son not be fussy with his food. The activities arranged and provided ensure he is always entertained and learning as he goes. I especially love how the children are integrated into the local environment such as sports at the multi-use court over the road and outings on the bus.
Good communication has lead to an open relationship to discuss areas of work and planned ways of tackling any issues has meant an even level of care at home and at the nursery.

What a great Nursery, my son was previously at another nursery and has recently transferred to Green Park due to moving area. I was very worried about this transition as he was extremely settled in his previous Nursery. I needn't of worried!
The transition was seamless and communication between the staff and myself has been fantastic. They always give me detailed feedback that is personal to my son and confirms to me they know him as an individual. There is always a smile and helping hand when ever needed and most importantly he his happy, settled and content in his new environment. He continually talks about his carers at home and is always happy to leave me in the mornings. What more can I ask for?

I would just like to say how wonderful the nursery really is, they accommodate children with all needs and understand anxious parents. The management team treat the children as family I feel, my child is 4 and and talks about " nanny" a lot. I have had medical issues with my children and they completely understood all of them and take great care. My children have flourished in the nursery and I would never doubt recommending it to someone.

Be careful with this nursery, make sure you read all their terms and conditions like 6 weeks notice etc when you sign up.. They would ask you to check website for terms and conditions.. not very satisfied with nursery.. Not much attention given to learning and development.

Elayne Collins, Nursery Manager at Green Park Day Nursery (Reading) responded to this review on 06 Jan 2016:

This situation is fortunately very rare and it is very disappointing that this family's experience with us has been marred by an administration issue.
We are committed to providing the highest quality of care, learning and development. We have robust systems in place to track all children’s individual progress to ensure that children are supported in all areas of their development.
Our terms and conditions are available in paper format and very publicly on our website and are also standard terms and conditions to the Early Years sector.
We wish the family all the very best for the future.

Green Park were outstanding! its not easy having to leave your six month old bundle of joy, but thankfully they made it easy for me. Wonderful friendly staff, always ready for little baby cuddles. Great facilities her three year old sister could visit on her days in. Excellent food. Thank you Green Park for all you have done for us.

We are very happy at Green Park. My son's key worker knew him really well and made it a wonderful experience for him. He loved playing hide 'n' seek with her in the garden. Also he had a great bond with another member of staff who read stories and played games with. They have taught him so much and have helped him settle into the next room. He has not been in Bumblebee's long but I can see he is going to enjoy it as much as Ladybird's and be thoroughly cared for and looked after.

Coming to nursery has really made our daughter develop. The staff do such a great job with the children and should be proud of what they do.
