  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.721 for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Stoke Poges is calculated as follows: ( (208 Excellents x 5) + (59 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 276 Ratings = 4.721

  • 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 4.962 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Stoke Poges is based on 10 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.962

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

Nursery hosted a Mothers Day Breakfast, an opportunity for mummies to go into nursery and have breakfast with their child. It was such a lovely experience, staff worked with the children to serve their mummy breakfast.

It was organised well and so cute to see children serve breakfast and I would like to thank all the staff that made this event so wonderful and special for me and my son.

We have been with this nursery for over 6 years and always feel so welcomed and confident with the care that is provided for both our children.

Thank you.

We have found our experience with Nuffy Bear Day Nursery to be a pleasant one. Our son is always happy when we pick him up and staff are very attentive and give us a mini update on each visit. There is always something different for the children to do, be it an activity in the garden or an entertainer.

The engagement we get to have as parents is also a plus, for example, the "WOW" moment cards that can be placed on the tree before entering the nursery.

Overall, the Nursery is wonderful, the staff always make an effort to talk to us, from the management to the nursery caterer.
Management, in particular, have been very approachable regarding any issues or questions we have which has been much appreciated. A big thumbs up from us and looking forward to seeing the great things continue.

Choosing Nuffy Bear Nursery has been one of the best choices we made for our child. He started the nursery when he was a baby and now he’s almost 4 years old. We have no negative comments about the nursery, the whole team is just amazing. The staff at the nursery are exceptional and have taken really good care of my son. My son has learnt so much at such a young age and this wouldn’t have been possible without support from the nursery. We are going to miss our sons time at the nursery, but surely the whole memories will stay with us once he starts school.

Nuffy Bear Day Nursery has been welcoming from the start, asking for feedback and encourage parents to give constructive feedback.
They have proven to be quite verbal to the development of young daughter and have attended to our needs where possible.

The staff are always friendly and caring towards the children; I personally feel my son is treated like he is one of their own. The nursery is like a home from home for the children attending; there are plenty of fun and educational resources for them to use, and they are encouraged to explore new things. I am particularly impressed with the recent change in menu, the food on offer provides a wide range of variety, as well as a well-balanced diet. The food on offer also encourages children to try new things. I would highly recommend this nursery to new parents, you can be assured when you can't be with your children they are being well looked after.

My daughter has attended this nursery for 4 months now and both me and my partner can see a huge difference in our daughters learning abilities. We are both so pleased that we chose Nuffy Bear (Stoke Poges). The staff are so welcoming to our daughter in the mornings and she is so happy and looks forward every day to attend nursery. The staff here have helped with widening her food palette, understanding how to share and better her communication skills. As a parent, I am extremely satisfied and I couldn't ask for any more for my daughter's wellbeing.

My son joined Nuffy Bear in Stoke Poges 8 months ago and settled in very well in a short period of time. The staff, including management, are amazing, everyone is very friendly and helpful. I am kept well informed of my son's progress and get really good updates of his day when I pick him up every day. The nursery is very accommodating when I require additional sessions at a short notice, they are always very helpful.
My son loves going in, we never have tears in the morning which gives me peace of mind that he is happy there and well looked after.
The nursery also has a holiday club for older children which my eldest attends and really enjoys.
I'm really impressed with the facilities on site and the nursery does have plenty to offer. I'm glad I chose Nuffy Bear and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for quality childcare.

Fantastic nursery. My youngest daughter now attends here in the piglets room and I honestly couldn't ask for better for her. Staff are fantastic even with any health issues I have had with her. Staff have been there and been very supporting helping in whichever way they can. There is a variety of different activities set out for the children to get involved in all day and there is always a thorough breakdown of what your child has got up to during the day. My daughter loves attending this nursery, I trust them with my children one million percent and always know she is going to have a great day. This is my second child to attend this nursery and I would never use another. I recommend to anyone looking for a safe, fun environment for your child.

Can't recommend this nursery highly enough! They have been wonderful with my 2 year old boy (who has developmental delay and is non-verbal), and he is very happy to see the nursery and the staff, and very cheerful when he comes back home. Management are present and very involved/warm with the children. They have been friendly and flexible in interacting with us as parents and have done their best to be accomodating of requests and additional sessions.
Very good nursery. Lovely staff. Happy child. Happy parents!

My son has been at Nuffy Bear since August and absolutely loves it. He was 12 months old when we started, still fully breastfed, rocked to sleep and wasn't fond of eating so I was worried about the transition. However the staff have been truly amazing and have met all his needs with care and compassion. When I drop him off he runs off to play and even sleeps in a cot and all with no tears. All through the settling in period I could call up and see how he was doing which really can give piece of mind and comfort. I couldn't be happier with Nuffy Bear and the development my son has made. Thank you so much.

My 3yr old daughter has flourished since attending Nuffy Bear last term. We could not believe how confident, happy and outgoing she had become. She adores the messy play, playing with her new friends and visiting the chickens in one of the outdoor spaces! Highly recommend the quality care and individual support my daughter has received.

My daughter has gone through the nursery since she was 2 years old she is now 10 years old and still comes to the holiday camp which they provide in the holidays which supports my childcare.
The staff are always happy and make you feel welcome and are always supportive to my daughters needs.
The holiday camp is excellent with the swimming lessons as a bonus and the weekly trips provide a variety of learning skills aspects such as golf and farm to fork in Tesco.
My daughter absolutely loves the camp and would highly recommend the nursery and the camp.

My child really enjoys going to nursery. I feel she is well cared for and has made lots of progress.
I am well informed about how my child has 'got on' during the day.
The regular emails from the nursery also help with communication.

All 3 of my children have attended Nuffy Bear Nursery over a period of 9 years.

The consistency and retention of staff is extremely high, my 1 year old is currently looked after by the same lovely lady as my 9 year old was when he was 1!

The leadership team and room leaders have also been at the nursery during this time, which gives me a sense of complete trust in the care given.

The facilities have changed and continually improved during this time and my children have had a very varied exposure to all sorts of learning and creativity. It is a fun environment and all settled very quickly.

Swimming is included from age 3 and the weekly lessons are a great benefit and life skill for children.

I would thoroughly recommend the nursery.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for almost a year now and she has a great time. Staff are caring and capable and I know she's well looked after. Her personal development is well considered. I would like to see a little more order and focus to the day but there is so much to stimulate and bring the children on that this is a minor concern.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since Oct 2014 and has loved her time at this nursery. The staff are so lovely and so caring towards all the children. I have been in at different times unannounced to collect my child and have always been greeted by a friendly member of staff and have always seen the children happily engaging in activities. I am so glad I chose this nursery for my child and would recommend it to parents.

My daughter has attended Nuffy Bear Day Nursery since she was 10 months old and is now 3. She thoroughly enjoys it especially the mud kitchen and forest school. She has exceeded in her development and boasting with confidence due to the support and care from the nursery team whom she is very close with. The staff have been extremely supportive through potty training and even through making sure she eats as she's not a good eater.
The staff are very attentive and supportive.
Would definitely recommend this nursery.

This nursery has ticked every box possibly so far...
I work on a rota and found that most of the nurseries in this area were not flexible at all, but Nuffield are extremely flexible. I've added sessions on in short notice and extended sessions too.
The nursery staff are professional, very friendly and approachable.
I also have every faith that if I'm worried about anything the staff will do everything possible to work with me to resolve any issues.
My daughter loves it!!
