Reviews

4.9 D-Dee's Day Nursery has a Review Score of 4.9 (4.917)

The Review Score of 4.9 (maximum of 10) for D-Dee's Day Nursery 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for D-Dee's Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.917 for D-Dee's Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for D-Dee's Day Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0

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

Reviewer Connection to D-Dee's Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    7

My son started the nursery at 9 months in the baby room, the staff always attended to his needs and planned activities for his next steps. He moved up into the main nursery once he was 2 years and made some lovely friendships with his peers, the staff and his key person were fantastic at caring for his needs, wants and interests. My son loved his time at nursery and talks fondly about the staff, he has started school now but often wants to pop into nursery to say hello when we pass.

My 3rd child has just finished her time at D-Dee's and so ends our association with the nursery that started more than 11 years ago. The staff are like a second family to us and I have and will continue to recommend this nursery to all who ask. The activities the children experience are varied and interesting and they have play opportunities that would have never happened had they not attended. Food is freshly prepared on the premises and the staff even managed to get my VERY picky eater to work her way through a wide variety of meals she won't touch at home (I'm not that bad a cook... honest!).

Go and look around - I don't think you'll be disappointed. The love for the welfare and happiness of children is abundant.

My son started at the nursery aged 3 and my daughter aged 1. The staff have been tremendous. My son settled quickly into the 'big room' and always enjoyed going. My daughter took longer to settle but all the staff were so helpful and patient with her. They always have time to talk to me and the communication is second to none. D-Dee's was the best decision my husband and I made for our children.

Amazing group of people who care so much for all the children.
Very homely environment.
The children always have an array of activities both inside and outside to keep them learning and having fun.
There is a lovely sleeping area for the children to have chill out time.

What I love about D-Dee's is the nursery has thought of everything, small things such as cleaning teeth during the day, to breakfast available upon arrival, to nap times being available to read. The Manager and her team have thought of all the little things, so I can drop them off and rush to work, they have made our lives easier, practical and best of all it is the attention to details that matter as a mum, knowing my girls are with other people who care, will hug them and update us regularly. When the girls started, not only did they think about the girls, they thought about me, a nice goodie bag with hot chocolate, chocolate sweets and a pack of tissues-brilliant idea!

My children talk about nursery as a fun, enjoyable place to be. The staff are wonderful and I never worry. Really recommend D-Dee's.

D-Dees is an amazing nursery. From looking around different nurseries you immediately get a good feel about it. Instinct is the best thing to trust always....

The staff are always super friendly and welcoming, they go out of their way to put the children at ease especially when settling them in. They help you as parents deal with leaving them too!

Each week they usually have themes to engage the children to help to teach them a variety of life skills and confidence.

My child attends D-Dees and I couldn't recommend it enough.

My daughter went here from 6 months. It was like leaving her with family. Very caring staff, I had no worries leaving Morgan with them. I looked at other nursery but it wasn't a patch on D- Dees . Would always recommend them to other parents . A very caring nursery.
