They welcome the opportunity to share their nursery with you and encourage all parents to arrange a visit. The visit will offer a snapshot of the day when all children are engaged and learning. They encourage all prospective parents to bring their child(ren) with them when they visit so they also can explore the building as a staff member shows you around each area of the nursery, providing you information relating to the different age groups. The most important thing to gain from a visit is the feeling you get when you visit, which helps you decide if it’s right for you and your child.


They are conveniently located opposite Anstey Park where there is ample parking making drop offs convenient. There is also a small lay by directly on Anstey Road outside the nursery.

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 4.75 for Enchanted Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 3.069 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Enchanted Nursery Ltd is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.069

Reviewer Connection to Enchanted Nursery Ltd

  • Mother of Child

My daughter attends Enchanted Nursery three days a week and absolutely loves her time there. Her days are always action packed and well structured. She enjoys her French session once a week and her music session as well. The staff are always very welcoming and the nursery has a lovely home feel to it. I would highly recommend Enchanted to any parent. All the staff are hard working and want the best for the children. I like the outside space on offer and that they always take the children outside come rain or shine.
