  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 50 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.612 for Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre is calculated as follows: ( (375 Excellents x 5) + (214 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 598 Ratings = 4.612

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre is based on 24 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 7 Target Reached = 1

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

Daybreak have been fantastic in caring for my daughter over the past year. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming, and my daughter settled in very quickly. The activities that she has taken part in are both fun and educational.

I am absolutely delighted with Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre. My son is in the baby room and the staff are always enthusiastic, energetic, kind and caring when we arrive in the morning.

I have been really impressed with the high standard of artwork/ creations that have come home for Christmas/ Mother's Day etc, which just shows how much effort and care the staff put into the activities for the children.
Even on a snow day, the staff brought a tray of snow into the setting for the children to explore and make footprints with a pair of wellies. The staff just go that extra mile and provide some lovely learning experiences for the children!

My son has always been happy to go into Daybreak Nursery and hoping it continues when he moves over to the Chiltern Avenue site next month. The staff at Amersham Town Centre are always very happy, friendly and helpful and I know that my son has a very good relationship with the carers and feels safe with them. His attendance has I feel helped so much with his progress and learning. I feel safe in the knowledge that he is being well looked after whilst I am at work!

Our little one has been at Daybreak for almost 6 weeks now, with a good few weeks of settling in before that. We have been extremely impressed. All the staff are very professional, pleasant, and considerate. They are very safety conscious (which we have loved), and they excel in proving an environment our little one has been very happy in and is thriving. It has made us very happy. We chose to Daybreak as a result of receiving several recommendations, and we would have no hesitation now similarly recommending the nursery. Thank you very much.

The staff have been lovely. My son is always greeted by name when we arrive in the mornings, even if I haven't seen that particular key worker before. They go above and beyond to ensure my son is happy and have been very understanding and accommodating when I have had to make changes to his routine at short notice.

Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre have been amazing to both my sons when they joined. My youngest took a while to get to know the staff and settle before he started so they put together a special programme for him to get to know them better. After that, he settled really quickly. Now when I drop him off he barely says goodbye but is off instantly with his friends. He’s excited to be there and his key carer is wonderful.

My 2 year old boy has been coming to Daybreak for just under a year now and he loves it! The staff are always so welcoming and have a cuddle waiting for him when he arrives. He has made lots of friends and enjoys all the activities especially playing outside. I’ve seen a real improvement in his speech and communication which is great!

My son loves going to nursery. What makes it so special is the staff who look after the children fabulously. They constantly play games, make development activities fun and genuinely care about the well being of the children in their care. They always keep the parents updated about the day and we look forward to hearing all about it when we pick him up. My son also loves the food, he eats double portions of everything!

We started our daughter at Daybreak in November and the staff have been excellent at helping her settle in. The staff always greet her with a smile and give us a detailed breakdown of her day. It is good they move the children throughout the building and try and use outside as much as possible.
I feel the outside space could be improved but I see there are plans to do this soon!
I initially worried about the healthiness of the food provided but it seems that has also been improved to make it more balanced.

My 20-month-old attends the nursery and is very happy to go there. The staff are very friendly and I feel that he is well looked after. The security at the centre is stringent and the garden area is fenced off for safety as well. There seem to be a number of activities to keep my son entertained and his confidence/interaction with others has improved as a result. The nursery has helped develop him in ways that perhaps he would not have achieved just from being at home.

In terms of cleanliness, the areas the children use appear to be regularly cleaned.

An area where I think there could be improvements is the food on offer. I would have preferred organic produce where possible and I don't understand why the menu offers some products that contain sugar and salt. I feel these ingredients should be avoided as much as possible for toddlers. The decor internally is a little tired however that doesn't affect the delivery of service. Overall I would recommend this nursery to others.

Our second daughter has been at Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre since just before her first birthday and has now moved over to the preschool site. We have again been tremendously pleased with the level of care given to her during her time there. From a warm smile first thing in the morning to her having too much fun to leave in an evening, we've been confident that she's been in a caring and safe environment. The level of learning through play is great - colours, numbers, tidying, sharing, the list goes on. Even to the level of determination of the staff to work through problems like when our daughter would only eat sweet food! We will miss the happy, friendly staff who have helped and supported us through my return to work.

My daughter has been very happy at Daybreak. The staff are friendly and caring. They do lots of fun activities. They also try to help if you need additional days or emergency cover. The setting is in a good location and parking right outside is easy, which makes drop offs easy. Overall a great nursery.

From day one we've been really pleased with Daybreak, finding the staff very warm and welcoming. Our daughter has made some good friends and tells us that she's had fun every day! She gets on really well with the staff and is always happy in the morning when we drop her off. She's tried a variety of different foods that has really helped us at home too. Whilst she will be sad to move on to the next nursery after such a great experience, with a lot of her friends moving at the same time we're sure she be just at happy at the next Daybreak nursery!

Our son has been going to Daybreak since he was 11 months old and is soon transitioning to the pre-school building.

He loves going there and chats excitedly about his friends and the day's activities when he gets home.

The staff are always friendly and greet us with lots of information about our son's day. They do so with excitement and seem to genuinely care how he's been feeling and getting on, rather than giving the impression of merely reading off a chart.

When our son first settled in, and when he transitioned to the toddler room, we received lots of guidance from management and other staff as well as multiple free settling-in sessions, that all meant that the process was quite easy for both us as parents and our son.

I can't think of much that could be improved as he gets to do lots of exciting activities and develop his social skills.

Since our son has been at the nursery he has been so happy due to the level of care he has received from the staff. They are all approachable and put your mind at ease. Our son has shown huge progression in English and Maths due to the activities the nursery put on during the day. The variety of food they put on is also first class. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

We were recommended to Daybreak by a friend and from the very first visit, we knew our child would be happy here.
It's a very warm and welcoming place, the staff are always so friendly and very professional. The manager was always happy to answer any questions or queries without hesitation.
Our child has loved his time at Daybreak and whenever my partner picked him up, he was always so happy!
Would highly recommend Daybreak. Thank you all so much for giving our child such happy memories!

My son attended Daybreak, Amersham Town Centre from when he was one until he turned two and half in January 2017.

I can thoroughly recommend the nursery. My son was so happy there.

The staff are so caring and nurturing and they are fantastic at supporting the kids to learn and play. It has the atmosphere of one big family.

I liked the fact that the baby and toddler rooms are split, so the setting is completely tailored to the age and specific stage of development. Also, the outside space is great and the kids spend most of the day outdoors in the summer.

My son was always excited to go to nursery at the start of the day and had a big smile on his face when we collected him. He would sing songs and talk about his carers and friends on the way home with such joy and in my opinion, you can't get a better recommendation that.

He is now at the bigger Daybreak on Chiltern Avenue and both teams managed the transition seamlessly so he barely noticed he changed sites.

I have been very impressed with this nursery. Right from the word go, they went out of their way to help my son settle in and I have always felt confident that he was being very well cared for. The staff have been great and the place is run under the strong leadership of the Manager, who does an impressive job in making sure everything is up to scratch. I also think my son has learnt a lot from attending this nursery and it has really helped his development. Based on my own experience, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this nursery.

My little one has been at Daybreak for 1.5 years and I am very happy with the care she received. The staff are warm, caring and welcoming and quick to deal with any concerns we have had - whether food or behaviour or anything else! The management is excellent and we have always felt able to speak to the Manager - who is very approachable and proactive - about any issues. Our daughter loved her time at Daybreak and we are so glad it is the nursery we chose for her.

My son attended Daybreak Amersham Town Centre Nursery from the age of one to two and a half and absolutely loved it. The staff were excellent - attentive, caring and fun (we actually use them for babysitting outside of nursery hours). He always looked forward to going and was never upset when I dropped him off. The activities were varied and the food excellent. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

My two and a half-year-old son recently "graduated" from Daybreak Nurseries after an extremely happy 18 months there. The management and her team looked after him (and us!) so well - making sure that our son had a happy, fun and extremely caring environment to enjoy and making sure that we were kept very well informed as to what he was up to and how he was getting on. His key carers were both excellent in terms of really getting to know our son and giving him a clear "person" who he was especially bonded to, although all of the staff were so caring he was spoilt for cuddles! The facilities, food, and learning environment are all great at Daybreak Nurseries but what really stood out for us is how much the staff really care about the children and what a lovely nurturing environment they have created.

My little boy thoroughly enjoys going to Daybreak. The staff are always welcoming and he has made a lot of friends there. I love the fact that it's open 7.30am-7.00pm as this helps me with my working hours. The little ones are quite often out in the garden during the summer which my little boy loves.

My daughter has attended Herald House for 18 months and I have been extremely happy with the care she has received over this period. The staff are all very caring and supportive and nothing is too much trouble. They also take the time to build strong relationships with children and parents alike. The activities my daughter has undertaken have been varied and she has learned a lot.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre and would certainly send any future child there.

Our daughter has been attending Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre since she turned 1 and will soon be moving over to the pre-school site. She is always happy to arrive in the mornings (often greeting her carers with a hug) and thoroughly enjoys her time there.

Staff have a strong commitment to all aspects of learning, and I have been impressed with the level of care that is put into the settling process (both when children start with Daybreak Nurseries Amersham and when they progress to a new room or site).

Overall we are extremely happy with Daybreak Nurseries Amersham and would recommend to anyone.

Our twins have been going to Daybreak since they were one and have thoroughly loved it! They will soon be moving over to Daybreak pre-school and we all feel sad to be leaving the fab staff at Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre who have looked after them since they were tiny. Daybreak have all looked after our two so brilliantly since they have been there and we would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

Sarah Dodds, director at Daybreak Nurseries Amersham Town Centre responded to this review on 24 Aug 2016:

Thank you Claire for the lovely review and we look forward to them starting at our Pre-school in Chiltern Avenue

My daughter spent 14 months in the nursery from the age of 13 months. The nursery had a plan to handle the settling time, development and growth.

The staff paid very close attention to each and every development need of the baby.

The environment proves to be the happiest one for the babies.

Our daughter has been attending the nursery since Nov'15. Although she has fallen ill a few times I can't thank the staff at the nursery enough for taking such good care of her. Since attending the nursery she has learnt a lot of things in particular becoming more social, being able to eat on her own which is really impressive to see.

I would strongly recommend Daybreak to all our friends.

My son has been at Daybreak's Amersham Town Centre nursery since May 2014, when he was just nine months - and in January 2016, he moves up to the Chiltern Avenue site. Since the very early days, we've been so impressed by how caring all the members of staff have been - and our son has thrived in the warm, fun environment. The manager, has particularly made us feel welcome as parents and has offered helpful advice and support along the way. We would thoroughly recommend the nursery to others.

The team at Daybreak are absolutely fantastic, attentive and caring people. My son has flourished since joining 12 months ago and I am so pleased that I chose them as his full time day care. I would highly recommend the nursery for prospective parents.

I would recommend this nursery 100%. The nursery staff are very nice, polite, welcoming and professional. My son has been with the nursery since he was 1 yr old. By the end of the year, my son had learned a lot. He is very bright and I am very pleased with every stage of his development. The children are well looked after, definitely value for money. Moreover, the opening hours are parent friendly. My son has now moved to the Chiltern branch and has quickly settled in with no issues. This coming from a happy parent.

The Daybreak staff are like a family to us. They have surpassed my expectations. My friends who send children to other nurseries are surprised when I tell them that Daybreak sent staff over to our house several times to play with my son and help him settle in. Staff are always friendly, welcoming, supportive, calm, patient and very loving towards the children. The senior staff in the baby room lead by example and their positive attitude is infectious. They demonstrate professionalism at all times when caring for the children and dealing with parents, as well as in a range of fun activities provided in a safe environment. What an amazing team!

Both of my boys have attended Daybreak Nursery from age 1-2.5 years, and have now moved on to the Daybreak pre-school at Chiltern Avenue. We have been very pleased with the nursery. The staff are caring and friendly, and provide a good range of activities in a supportive environment. Most importantly my boys have always been very happy there.

Daybreak is a fantastic nursery with very caring staff!

I have 2 kids, one that is now 6 which attended Daybreak from 10 months to 3 and another that is now 3 which has been attending Daybreak from 2.5yrs old.

Their care to my children is fantastic, the staff are very well trained. My kids' development during their time there is great too.

Daybreak always provide feedback about their day and my son is always very happy. On the development side, I think they learn a lot without being pushed and they get very well prepared for school time. I would have no hesitation to recommend Daybreak to any parent.

Really pleased with Daybreak where our son has attended since 11 months old. Good range of activities, happy staff (with low turnover) and strong management. Our little boy is happy there and fulfilled.

I have found all the staff very polite, friendly and helpful. My daughter has settled in very well and always comes home with a smile on her face. There is a good range of toys. I would recommend Day Break nursery.

The staff at Daybreak are so lovely - always very positive and welcoming, and have made the experience very pleasant for my daughter, who started in March. She will now be joining the Chiltern Avenue section in September, and seems to be transitioning very well with the help of the staff. She has developed really well in her time there. Her vocabulary has really come along, as well as her ability to build towers and do art work, and problem solve. She has gained in confidence, and made friends there, and speaks fondly about it. I am always impressed with the food they have been given, which is very varied and good for the children. They have been really helpful when I started potty training my daughter, and have done so whilst she is there too.

Excellent care and teaching to my son, he has developed so much since going to daybreak. I put my son initially into a childminder and he liked it but I never felt that he was 100% happy there. Since coming to daybreak he has advanced so much and he loves it there.

My little boy started at Daybreak a year ago. We had to take him out of his current nursery which worried me but the staff at Daybreak settled him brilliantly and gave him the attention he needed. He has done really well since starting and absolutely loves it. We find the staff attentive and lovely and he talks about them all at home. They understand his individual needs and I get fantastic updates about his activities and progress. The nursery itself is a fun, well run place and the communications to parents is a lot better than our previous place.

The nursery team have become like a second family to us. They have been so supportive throughout the time my son has attended particularly as we do not have family locally. The team are always helpful, cheerful and take time to have a chat and listen. They are very responsive to the child's needs which is reassuring as it shows how they get to know the children and treat them as individuals. I am always amazed at the different activities they do which are not just fun but also help with learning.
