Reviews

9.9 Grasshoppers Day Nursery (Aylesbury) has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.883)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Grasshoppers Day Nursery (Aylesbury) 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 47 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Grasshoppers Day Nursery (Aylesbury) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.883 for Grasshoppers Day Nursery (Aylesbury) is calculated as follows: ( (502 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 564 Ratings = 4.883

  • 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 Grasshoppers Day Nursery (Aylesbury) is based on 23 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 14.6 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.

When I first visited the Grasshoppers Day Nursery I was very impressed by all of the facilities especially the playground and their commitment to healthy eating.
My son is enjoying every minute there, the staff are very kind and friendly, the weekly activities are great - learning by having fun, every day I am surprised how much my son is learning.
A massive thank you to all the team there that make it such an enjoyable educational environment.

My daughter recently moved up rooms to the 2-3-year-old room. The staff have been excellent supporting her with the transition from room to room. They have kept me informed of all the changes and made the transition smooth and hassle-free.

My son is my second child to have attended Grasshoppers. Grasshoppers were the only nursery to send them to and deferred my return to work until they both had a place. My son will be leaving for big school and will really miss nursery, especially his keyworker who he adores. He has been lucky to have her in two rooms during his nursery year. Grasshoppers is a wonderful, nurturing environment full of loving, professional staff. I have felt relaxed leaving my children in their care over the years. We will all really miss the nursery and all the wonderful staff. Thank you.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 9 months. We have always been pleased with the staff and the care provided. My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it has set her up well for starting school. My son is also at the nursery and will continue to do so until he starts school. Thank you to everybody at the nursery.

My daughter started at Grasshoppers a year ago and since then she has developed so much, socially, talking and walking! The staff are always super friendly and do everything they can to make sure she is happy and safe. There are lots of opportunities to meet other parents and for little ones to make friends. I am very sad that she has to leave, the next nursery has a lot to live up to.

We are extremely happy with the care and support our daughter has received for nearly 2 years since she was 9 months & she loves her 3 days a week at Grasshoppers.
She has a fantastic key worker, who does an outstanding job in taking care of her, all the Staff are very friendly and welcoming, they keep us very well informed of all her daily activities, food intake (which is wonderfully "home" cooked on site and very delicious).

The Management Team is extremely efficient, helpful, supportive and approachable. I am very pleased for them to get this well deserved reward ‘Management Team of the year 2016’ at the annual awards ball. Well done everyone!

As a parent, I know my daughter is well looked after in a lovely, clean and safe environment. Thank You all! I recommend this nursery to anyone who wants the very best for their child.
From a very happy parent.

For every parent, it is daunting leaving their child, but everyone at Grasshoppers has been so supportive and kind, it certainly has made it easier for us as parents. Our little boy has struggled being left but clearly as soon as we leave he has a lovely time and has developed so much within a few months.

His Key Worker has been amazing and this clearly shows in the way he is with her (and the photos/video's on I Connect), her time and dedication has been outstanding and this is very reassuring for us. Even producing a little book for him to take home with familiar photo's of the nursery and staff to assist him settling in.

The staff take time in getting to know the children on an individual basis and will take the time to speak to parents to reassure and discuss any concerns.

I would not hesitate to recommend Grasshoppers.

My child is very happy and content at the nursery. He loves the activities planned by his key worker and has good relationships with the other adults in his room. He has a well-developed routine and eats /sleeps well. When he is ill he is well cared for and the staff really care about each individual. His speech and interaction with other children are developing well and he always has good behaviour modelled. Couldn't be happier.

Our daughter has been at the nursery since she was 10 months old, she is now 22 months and developing really well thanks to the superb care they provide. She settled well and has always been really happy. The facilities and activities are great, the garden is amazing. We receive thorough feedback every day and her key worker regularly uploads photos and information on her progress onto Parent Zone so we can see how she's doing, it's really lovely to read. The management team are super efficient, really helpful and friendly. Overall we are really pleased with Grasshoppers and would highly recommend.

All the team at Grasshoppers really get to know the children as individuals. This is especially important for us with a number of food allergies and intolerances to deal with.
During December they have done so many exciting things gearing up for Xmas and I look forward to the Christmas party next week!

I have never visited/viewed or put any of my 3 children in a nursery as beautiful as Grasshoppers. As soon as you walk in you are greeted (after the secure entry) by a warm smile and beautiful big hallway. Outdoor space is superb a garden for each room, huge shared garden and an allotment patch. All staff I have encountered are friendly and caring and take the time to get to know you and your child. The meals the children are given are nutritious, hearty and enjoyed by the fussiest of eaters. My son started here at 12 months, was very clingy and upset, the staff in his room knew exactly what to do and now he loves his time there and often is happy continuing play while I'm waiting to take him home! On top of all this, the nursery does a lot of work for its chosen charity each year and also provides the parents/carers and other family members a Christmas fayre and open days all offering more than some schools do!
I highly recommend this nursery and am so grateful that my son is here and he is thriving.

All the staff in the nursery know the children's names in other room and they all know the staff.
The garden is fantastic. The toys and space they have to enjoy is amazing and one of the many reasons why we choice this nursery, as our daughter is an outside child.

I would be more than happy to recommend Grasshoppers Day Nursery. Taking your child to the nursery for the first time can be daunting for any parent and I was terrified on that first day! I was met by the staff who were extremely comforting and welcoming. They immediately showed an interest in my daughter and helped her to settle in nicely. I left the nursery, after dropping her off and tried to sneak away thinking she would react better, however, she caught me leaving (my heart sunk) and then she came over to me, said goodbye and toddled off to play house with a member of staff! I almost skipped out of the door! Since then my daughter has bonded so well with all the staff and other children and loves Nursery days! She has also developed in so many areas and loves learning new things! Wouldn't consider sending her anywhere else.

Our child is very happy at Grasshoppers. He started at 13 months old and is now 2 and a half years. He has made wonderful progress in all aspects of his development, and we believe it is also thanks to Grasshoppers. The friendships he developed with children and adults and being involved in fun group activities, playing, singing and dancing. Staff are always very welcoming, caring, kind and able to answer questions anytime. The Parent Zone app is great, as it puts a smile on my face to see our boy exploring and having fun when we are at work., We're very happy that kids spend time outdoors too! Highly recommended.

Great members of the team in pre-school. They all made my daughter feel welcome and involved from day one. One of the nursery practitioners provides great feedback after every session, treating/recalling all children individually. I am also provided with great feedback online to comment on. The nursery team leader made settling in and understanding parental aspects easy and comfortable. Another one of the nursery practitioners is always welcoming to my daughter, ensuring she is settled and answers any questions or queries.

We are very lucky to have found Grasshoppers. Our son is very happy here, has lots of fun and asks for the staff at weekends too. For us as parents, knowing that he is happy and able to learn and explore in a safe, clean and friendly environment makes it much easier getting on with our work day. We find the email communication with the next weeks planned activities useful and appreciate the daily feedback too. Highly recommended.

My family started using Grasshoppers Day Nursery 10 years ago when my niece was just 4 weeks old. 10 years later my baby has just started there. It is simply the best. I have no worries, issues or concerns. The best part about Grasshoppers Day Nursery is the fact that the same staff who were there 10 years ago are still there today. That says a lot about staff retention in an environment where all are very happy both staff and those babies. Excellent food, facilities, massive garden, learning activities and care.

Lovely friendly nursery. My child is always very well cared for and happy. Everything is very straightforward and documented. Lots of different activities to keep baby's happy. My child has very good connection with her key worker and that puts me in ease to know she has somebody to turn to when she needs while I am in work.

Grasshoppers is a fantastic nursery that I cannot recommend highly enough. Staff have worked hard from the outset to get to know my child and have always treated him as an individual. Staff respond to his needs and do not try to fit him into a 'routine'. My thoughts and feelings as a parent have been respected and accommodated and I have felt able to voice these if necessary. Staff keep in touch with me and notice when my child is 'not himself'. He enjoys his time at nursery and learns every day something that he is excited to share with us. Important values are encouraged but children are not shamed or excluded when they make mistakes, which I feel is very important. I am so happy with our nursery choice, the quality of care provided has made the transition to being working parents feel much less difficult than we feared and we will always be very grateful.

Both my boys love/d nursery and are/were very happy there. They gained valuable social skills interacting with the staff and loved the food. The opening hours make work-life balance possible and even though expensive it provides good opportunities for development and play

Thank you so much for offering my son and daughter such a wonderful experience at nursery. They love to come to nursery and always seem to come home talking about all the fun things they have done in their day. I have observed that my daughter's talking has now developed well while at nursery and my son has appreciated the social learning from the setting. Unfortunately, due to me taking maternity leave the children cannot continue to attend the nursery. We are very excited about having a new member of the family on the way. Thank you again. Grasshoppers is such a lovely nursery setting and I would recommend it highly to anyone who asked.

We have been impressed with how well the staff have ensured a smooth transition for our 2 daughters who started last September. Everyone is friendly, helpful and professional. We are kept very well informed of our children's day and also of the weekly/monthly goings on. It is comforting to see the creative planning displayed in the pre-school room and how the staff follow the children's interests. The rooms are always set up with well thought through attractive and stimulating activities when we drop off in the morning. Both our children are happy to be left with the staff.

My son loves going to nursery twice a week and adores his key worker. He seems to do a good range of activities and his key worker is always happy to give us a good update of what he's been up to. Everyone in the nursery is friendly and helpful and I am very pleased with our choice.

We are happy with the grasshoppers nursery. When our son started there at 13 months old we were anxious to start with but he settled very well thanks to the support from the staff. The meals are well balanced and the out door space is excellent. We're very happy with the building, equipment, staff as well as the activities for the children. We would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents, even the car parking is easy! very friendly staff but very professional too!

My son has been attending Grasshoppers Day Nursery for 9 months now and he loves it. My main priority is for him to be happy and he really is. The level of care is truly amazing, the staff show so much love towards him and all the other children, it is fantastic to see. My son is learning through activities and play that are tailored to his needs and interests, The food provided is brilliant, he even eats meat (never does for me). The garden is amazing. The management team are very welcoming and I feel that we are always kept up to date with info on our son's learning. Thank you Grasshoppers for a fantastic experience.

My daughter has attended Grasshoppers Aylesbury since August 2014 and it is a safe and secure facility and she bonded with her key worker very well. It has a fantastic outdoor space and great decking area in the bumblebee room where children can still play outside if the garden area is too wet to play in. The Refurbishment and extension to the Nursery finished just as my Daughter started at the nursery, the rooms are big and facilitate many different activities such as Music corner (which she loves), Home Corner, Book Corner and many more. The staff are friendly and the food menu is fantastic and has many different varieties of dishes. My Daughter is only leaving because she received a place at a Pre School that is attached to a School which has an outstanding reputation. If she had not received this place, I would be more than happy to leave her at Grasshopper's until school age and I would recommend this nursery to any parent who is looking for a friendly, Professional caring environment for their child to attend.

My son has been attending Grasshoppers for 16 months and we have only ever had a positive experience. Leaving him for the first time as a 10 month old baby was extremely difficult but all of the staff helped him settle in so quickly and made him and us feel like part of the family. He became attached to his key worker to the extent that he talks about her all weekend and now doesn't want to leave her to move to the next room. There is always a wide variety of activities for him to complete and the outside space is superb! His speech and confidence have grown massively in the last few months and it's a pleasure picking him up each day and seeing how happy he is!

Over the last eight years my son and daughter have gone through this nursery. They were both very happy and content. The management and staff are all very approachable and extremely friendly. Both of them were sad to leave and us as parents will miss not going to nursery on a day to day basis and the staff are like an extended family to us. Both of them have been given a good start in learning basics to get them ready for school and all aspects of growing up.

We are very happy with the experience we have at the nursery on a day to day basis. My son clearly enjoys coming and has settled very well in both rooms he has been in. His recent transition to Ladybirds was well supported with gradual visits to integrate him to the group. He is always full of smiles when I pick him up and this makes us smile too! The range of toys and activities is well thought through and it is lovely that he gets to spend so much time outside now. The staff have all been really supportive and my son clearly likes being around them.

Grasshoppers are the most caring, considerate practitioners around. They take the time to understand your child's individual needs. The settling sessions are fantastic and give you total peace of mind. My son has developed in leaps and bounds every week since joining.
Thank you Grasshoppers.
