Queens Baby Nursery has been operating for many years and is part of a small group of nurseries. Queens Baby Nursery specialises in care and support between the ages of three months and two years of age, within a safe and secure setting that is equipped with CCTV throughout, highly qualified staff with enhanced DBS checks and good references.

The nursery has recently undergone a full refurbishment and the children benefit from a natural cosy environment. The rooms are divided by age and fully support babies in their stages of physical development.

Friendly and experienced professionals look to help parents in getting their child the best start in life, enabling them to play and learn in stimulating surroundings and with numerous play resources to interest them.

The on-site nursery chef cooks a partly organic menu fresh each day which has been created with the support of a certified nutritionist. A three-week rotating menu ensures the children’s diet is varied and healthy every day they attend.

The nursery employs daily specialist teachers to support children in their earliest years. These include Yoga, Baby Ballet, Musicology, Theatre Bugs and Jumping Beans. All teachers are fully referenced, police checked and are employed through accredited early years companies.

Children benefit from a range of sensory messy play activities to support their development. Weekly cooking sessions are held and older children benefit from trips to the local supermarket to purchase ingredients.

Reviews

9.2 Queens Baby Nursery has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.185)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Queens Baby Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Queens Baby Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 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 4.694 for Queens Baby Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.694

  • 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 4.491 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Queens Baby Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target = 0.741

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

My little boy started here in mid-September 2017. All members of staff are very well trained and polite and so caring with the little ones. His key worker has been fabulous at helping him settle which has been very reassuring. The kids always seem to have fun and be happy when I walk in and the food menu is very good!
Overall the nursery is so great and we are so pleased we have sent our little boy there.

Since joining Queens Baby Nursery our son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going to nursery every day. The nursery itself is a fun and bright environment and I think it provides the backdrop for more effective learning. All staff at Queens Baby Nursery are experienced, caring and professional and are very approachable for parents. Our experience at the Queens Baby Nursery has been fantastic and we would definitely recommend to others. Thank you!.

My twins have absolutely thrived at this nursery. Such a caring and nurturing team, we will all miss it loads!

Every time I collect them I'm filled with confidence that they've had a truly lovely day. They are happy, confident and full, full of words, expression and song when I get them, it's just wonderful to see!

Recommended so much!

The nursery staff and environment provide excellent care for my daughter. Staff are genuinely interested in getting to know my child and ensure she is looked after in a home from home environment. My daughter absolutely loves all the messy activities and has built a strong bond with her key workers. Communication is fantastic and I'm very happy with the service we are getting.

My son attends Queens Baby Nursery from 7:30 until 6:30 five days a week... Luckily, he absolutely loves it. The staff are fantastic with him, he's learnt social skills whilst playing with the other children, he eats very well and he is well looked after. The space is great, having been transformed by the manager and her team. We love the nursery, and we are so relieved and thrilled that our son is happy with it too.

I have been extremely happy with Queens as a whole (baby nursery and pre school). My son has just moved on from pre-school and it has helped his transition to reception years no end! He started at baby nursery at around 10 months and my daughter has recently started. I feel at ease knowing she is being well cared for, learning and having fun. I like that I am provided with a daily written and also verbal report. My cousin has also registered her son on the back of my recommendation. All of the staff at Queens Nursery and Pre School are wonderful and caring.

The introduction into the nursery was very good and friendly. My son was very happy with his first key person and got settled easily. The food for the children is varied and good knowing that he eats everything. The nursery is very cozy. Interesting for the children as it offers lots of activities and toys. The staff are professional and friendly. I think they should provide some of the hygiene products.

We have been really happy with the nursery so far. My child has settled in really well despite changes in his key worker. The staff seem lovely although the reception space is a little cramped. Communication from the management prior to starting wasn't great and we received no official communication when he changed room, we were just told when picking him up.

We love Queens Baby nursery! Our son has already attended Queens baby nursery and has now moved on to preschool and our baby girl now attends. The staff are brilliant - it is a partnership between parents/carers and the staff. They genuinely care about your child. They are interested in their development and growth. They are kind, generous, honest and hard working....taking wonderful care of our children while we have to work. If there has ever been an issue we have felt completely comfortable speaking to management and it has always been amicably agreed....i.e. I lost the invoice in my handbag - sorry!!
My children's key workers have worked with me to encourage my childrens learning development, whether that is colours, shapes, songs, bottle holding, toilet training etc they ensure that each child learns at their pace and ability.
At the end of each day, I know my children have had a brilliant day by the fact that they are exhausted and by the handover I get. As a busy mum I love to play but I am not pulling out the flour, paint, foam, rice krisppies etc to play with each weekend or day off. Thank goodness nursery encourages the children to enjoy getting messy and learning with it at the same time. There are plenty of books, music, baby yoga, theatre bugs to keep them entertained. The volume of toys is absolutely fine and each child gets to play but also has to learn to share with their friends, which I believe is very important.
Both my children have always loved the food that nursery provides. It is home cooked. With real special attention taken to the needs of each child. Both of them come home full and well fed on healthy food and snacks.
As the nursery sits on our high street they do lack for some space but they make good use of what is available to them. The indoor space is well utilised and made bright, colourful, interesting, changing and textured. The outdoor space again is limited but with a recent refit it is fit for purpose for little people - who don't have anywhere to hide (thank goodness) and enough space to play with each other and have a little run around.
Structure and discipline is something that we don't often discuss in a review but hats off to Queens baby nursery. The daily structure is brilliant and it means we can replicate at home from breakfast till bed time. Loud play with lots of running around, quiet play with books, nap time, social eating with family and friends. I really like the fact that the children are encouraged to help put things away - certainly not made to but encouraged. They are encouraged to keep their nursery nice and to help out.
Like all nurseries, there is the unending job of cleaning.....I have never found an issue with the really important items of cleanliness - kitchen, bathrooms, my childs own hygiene and the overall cleanliness of the toys, floor, furniture etc is all kept at a good standard.
We would unreservedly recommend Queens Baby Nursery.
