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 4.836 for Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) is calculated as follows: ( (665 Excellents x 5) + (123 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 791 Ratings = 4.836

  • 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 Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) is based on 32 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 26 positive Reviews (130 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 26 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.

I had to post a review about the helpfulness of the staff throughout this excellent nursery after I managed to get my car stuck in the mud in the car park - their response in assembling a quick-fire team of helpers including tow rope and truck was incredible and well above and beyond the call of duty. I appreciate this seems a random topic to comment on but it goes to show the dedication of everyone there and their willingness to do anything to help.

Our two children have collectively spent over 5 years at this nursery because of the excellence of the staff and their ever-present can-do attitude. Thanks again, everyone!

Julia Durbin is an excellent nursery. Our daughter has been there for four years and we are very happy to leave her each day in such a warm and positive environment. The staff are amazing - from the management team to the practitioners, to the cooks, and this is what makes the nursery such a high standard. They are all very professional and caring. We get regular feedback from our daughter’s ‘key workers’ and now we get additional feedback through the ‘Parent Zone’ app. In addition, there are several events each year that parents attend.
The physical environment is superb - the best outdoor areas we saw when choosing a nursery.
And the food is very good - clearly, a lot of thought goes into providing healthy, nutritious food.

But most of all it is the staff who make our daughter’s life both educational and interesting.

It’s an excellent all round nursery - we would recommend it to anyone in the Oxford area.

I highly recommend Julia Durbin Day Nursery to any parents/carers considering it. Two of my children attend the nursery and they've been fantastic from day one. Staff are extremely helpful and helped them both settle in really well. When I leave them in nursery, I leave knowing they will receive fantastic care and I have absolute trust that the staff looking after my children not just qualified but have a genuine interest in ensuring they have the best time and are always very attentive. I am always provided with daily feedback on their activities and food intake. The food is made fresh and is always healthy as well as having variety. The nursery management team are very responsive to any questions or queries and always respond very promptly. The different rooms have a wide variety of fun and educational activists all year and always try to involve parents/carers. I am really glad I chose this nursery for my children.

My daughter has been at Julia Durbin since June 2017 and has since transitioned into a second room. We could not be happier with the care, attention and love our daughter has received. The skills she learns every day continue to amaze us. As parents, we have been treated brilliantly and our concerns have always been addressed in the most attentive and caring manner by the management and room staff. Thank you for allowing us a safe and loving place to leave our daughter through the day. We could not ask for more.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff of the Ladybirds room for all the Christmas activities this month. Yesterday we received the crafts and photographs and it was a real wonderbox! The grandparents loved the adorable glittery Santa calendar and I couldn't stop smiling from the cheeky Elf photo. Thank you so much for your creativity, your commitment, care and affection. We can see it reflected in the eyes and the smile of our little pudding!

We are so happy with this nursery! The staff are fantastic and the activities that they plan for the children are fun and engaging. We receive plenty of feedback about how our daughter is doing and enjoy having a chance to be involved in the activities that the staff organise, such as the annual fete. The facilities and food are also excellent, and the large outdoor area is a huge bonus. Highly recommended!

My son has been visiting Julia Durbin Day Nursery since he is 10 months old. He settled in very well, because of the outstanding, highly qualified and lovely key workers who know him personally. He loves going to nursery. His development (including communication, social behaviour and fine/gross motor skills) is well supported by the diverse activities, the staff and the well-equipped and carefully and lovely decorated room.

The staff and the management team are very friendly and supportive. The feedback given to us (parents) is outstanding and very helpful. We and our son are very happy and we would recommend Julia Durbin Day Nursery to everyone.

Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) is a new place for myself and my family especially our little girl. I was uneasy at first for my daughter to go to nursery but the staff at Julia Durbin have been very supportive and helped a lot with our little girls’ development and bringing her out of her shell.

My husband and I are very happy with the nursery and would recommend to anyone.

The staff including the management team have been great and my little girl is very happy at the nursery when she comes home I don’t have to worry about her eating she eats everything no fuss, plays and shares and just a happy child.

Thank you, Julia Durbin staff.

Julia Durbin Day Nursery provides every opportunity for our daughter to learn and develop her communication and motor skills.

There are various activities made available and various equipment are provided to encourage the children's development through play and exploration.

The huge outdoor garden area is a major plus for the children to participate in outdoor activities.

I find the learning experiences for each classroom are well structured and planned, all the staff are very caring and friendly too.

Key persons for our daughter look after her very well and are doing amazing jobs in supporting and settling her in the class.

The daily reports and assessment reports are particularly helpful which allows us to be able to experience our child's developmental stage.

Words could not express how thankful we are to have our daughter taken care of so well at Julia Durbin Day Nursery, it is truly an outstanding and reliable nursery where children are kept happy and healthy!

I have no hesitation to recommend Julia Durbin nursery. Our two boys have attended the nursery over the last 6 years. They have loved every single minute of it!

As a parent you want your kids to be happy and safe when you can’t be with them. I’ve always had 100% confidence with the dedicated and kind staff of JD.

The nursery is well managed with approachable and helpful staff, always a cheery ‘hello’ in the morning. I have always had the impression that everyone enjoys working there and this feeds into the care and love that they impart to the children.

The outdoor space is fantastic and our boys have loved the opportunity to be outdoors so much.

Highly recommended.

A nursery with extremely high standards. All the staff are caring and supportive of the child’s needs. My daughter has always been at home with me and settled in incredibly fast with the kindness of her key worker even though she only attends a few hours a week. The nursery itself has very high standards of cleanliness and is smart. I would highly recommend this nursery.

We have had close to 3 wonderful years at Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) and during this time we have been consistently impressed with the care they have given our son. Some of the highlights have been:
We have always felt our son's key person has developed a real interest and bond with our son.
He has always eaten very well at Julia Durbin, even when not so good at home!
The feedback given to parents is excellent.

I can definitely recommend Julia Durbin Day Nursery.

My Daughter attended the Julia Durbin Day Nursery for about 3 years. I cannot praise the nursery enough. All of the staff over the years have been so caring and considerate. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed attending the nursery and I felt she was cared for so well. The choice of key workers in the 5 rooms she was in was done in such a way to suit my child and I felt thought had gone into that.
In the whole time my daughter was at the nursery I never had a reason to complain or grumble about anything, which is amazing.
From the office staff to the kitchen staff and the staff in the rooms, you were always greeted with a smile and warm welcome.
I can't recommend the nursery enough.

Our daughter leaves Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) for school after two wonderful years there. The staff in each room have been wonderful, not just in playing with and ensuring our daughter was kept safe, but also taking time to bond with her and get to know her as an individual. Her main concern about going to school is how much she is going to miss her key worker! She has loved playing outdoors in all weather in the preschool garden and playing in the different indoor areas of preschool. I would not hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone.

Our daughter has been at Julia Durbin Day Nursery since we moved to the area 2 years ago and is now heading off to school. She has gained a great deal from her time at the nursery and it has been great to see her grow in confidence. She has been very fond of all of the staff looking after her and has also made a lovely group of friends. All the staff, both the management and the childcare teams, have been friendly, professional and excellent throughout and it offers great peace of mind to be able to leave her in their care without any worry at all. The facilities are also excellent, in particular the outside spaces and the availability of extended opening hours. I would highly recommend this nursery!

My daughter has been very happy at this nursery and will miss the place when she goes to school. The garden is a real asset and the children spent a lot of time outside and exploring the wildlife. The staff are engaging and take a real personal interest in the children they care for. The activities are well planned and varied. The staff have imagination with new activities examining different themes and skills. The staff turnover appears low compared to my daughter's previous nursery.

Julia Durbin is a modern green and well-run nursery full of excellent staff headed by a wonderful manager.
Both our boys actively look forward to attending and both speak fondly of their key workers.
The programme is diverse and parent involvement is excellent.
What is nice to see is continued innovation in care, development (child and staff) and parental involvement.

Julia Durbin Day Nursery has been a really positive part of our family life over the past years. We have found the staff approachable, helpful, and willing to talk through and to resolve any questions or concerns, and both of our (very different!) children have loved being there. Our children love the outdoor area and the structured days, and we have really appreciated the thought that has gone into the positive management and care for the children. THANK YOU to all the staff who have poured time and energy into thinking about every aspect of the care of the children, and making the space one of growth, exploration, fun, and laughter.

I am always impressed with the level of kindness and care that Julia Durbin Nursery has for my two children who both attend half days, 3 days a week. My children are thriving within the environment provided and my only negative is that we have to leave to move back to Australia and I'm nervous I won't find anything to match the warmth and high standards set by our experiences here.
The staff are amazing and have been a wonderful safe and supportive structure for us, who are only in Oxford for a year.
I chose Julia Durbin after seeing other places based on the warm vibe I received when viewing the nursery. I based it on the outside space, the freedom for kids to go outside if they wished, and for the space and setup of each of the rooms. For me, they maintain the right balance for providing a safe, warm hearted, fun, educational environment for our children, and as parents, we have been impressed every step of the way. We just wish we could transport the whole nursery to Sydney.

My son has been at Julia Durbin since November 2013 and will be leaving to go to primary school at the end of August. The care that he has received during his time at nursery has been exceptional. My son loves going to nursery and talks happily about his day when we collect him.

Julia Durbin has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the nursery practitioners have helped my son develop his independence enormously. A huge range of different activities are available for the children, my son has enjoyed learning some French words, yoga on Wednesdays in Pre-School, messy play and much more. I have been particularly impressed by the way in which all of my son's key workers have worked with us to support his development. When my son was very young we used baby signing to communicate and his key workers made sure that the signs we used were consistent. More recently we have worked together to address 'challenging' behaviour by offering consistent rewards for good behaviour.

Julia Durbin is a wonderful nursery where our children are very happy. Our eldest has been through from caterpillars (baby room) to preschool, and we will all be very sad when she leaves. Her key worker at pre-school has done a fantastic job of growing her confidence prior to leaving. All of the staff know her very well, and actively encourage her interests; she comes home every day full of excitement and stories. Our youngest daughter started caterpillars in January and settled in very quickly. She has a lovely relationship with the staff there, especially her key worker, whom she adores. The atmosphere in caterpillars has been very nurturing and full of enthusiasm. We are moving abroad for a year in August but won't hesitate to bring our youngest back to Julia Durbin when we return.

My daughter has been with Julia Durbin since September 2016 to the present.
The staff are great, they looked after my daughter really well. She didn't speak English when she started pre-school and the first few days were stressful for her but her key person and other staff did everything to help her settle.
She made progress with her English, made some friends and really enjoys it. They do a lot of activities, spend a lot of time outside.
Food is really good too.

Both of our children have been through the Julia Durbin Nursery. It provides a wonderfully stimulating, nurturing environment that helps them to learn whilst having fun. Despite the fact that in our family both parents work long days, this has not been a problem as the Julia Durbin nursery is able to offer breakfast through to evening meals, and big long sleeps in the day as needed, so children carry on in their usual home routine. We also value the fact that the nursery is 100% reliable and will always be open on non-bank holiday days.

My son has been with Julia Durbin since August 2014 to the present.
As a parent, all you want to do is the very best for your child and one of the best things we did was enrol him here. We shall be very sad that his time will soon be coming to an end as he has made numerous friends with not only other children but also the staff.
It is the wonderful staff that work here that has given him the confidence to express himself through his communicating. Throughout his time at Julia Durbin my son has experienced very few settling in problems and any small issues have been addressed swiftly and the actions communicated back to us. As a full-time working parents, we have had very little time to become involved with Julia Durbin.
We have stayed with Julia Durbin with the knowledge that our son is learning, being well cared for and ultimately is in safe hands - what more could we want. This is a credit to all the room staff, reception and the management.

We have two kids at Julia Durbin Day Nursery, and it is the most wonderful, caring and exciting place for them. The staff are incredible, the food is great and most importantly both of our boys genuinely love their time there. The back garden is a lovely space, full of interest. I only wish there was an 'exceptional' mark above 'excellent' that we could give the nursery.

Our daughter is in Ladybirds. The staff are friendly to parents and give regular updates about how children are progressing. The staff are amazing with the children. The daily activities engage our daughter and she has really developed in the room. Her language has improved and she is becoming independent due to the attention and encouragement provided by staff. The management provide strong leadership and are very welcoming to parents. The food is good and the staff handle allergies well.

Currently, my 1-year-old and 3 year-old attend Julia Durbin Day Nursery. They have been attending for less than 1 year but I have noticed a huge improvement and developmental and communication skills. They both rush to go to nursery in the mornings and I feel confident that they are being looked after in a safe manner. Staff are attentive and extremely helpful on all levels.

My 3 and 1-year-old daughters go to Julia Durbin and both are very happy there. The staff are fantastic. They get lots of stimulation with all the amazing things that they do. It is so reassuring to know that they are being looked after so well whilst we are at work.

My son has been at Julia Durbin since he was 10 months old. He's now 4 and attending the pre-school there. We are extremely happy with the care the nursery staff have given him. They have played a major role in his development and learning and I am confident that he feels safe and happy there. I am always impressed at how the staff respond to the children's personal interests and plan activities around those; they are generally very in tuned with each child's character and interests. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

I have had two sons at this nursery. Both attended from 6 months old and the youngest is now in the Pre-School room. I am always impressed by the management of the nursery, the number of events organised and the attention to detail. In each room, there are caring staff who really get to know each child. We get good feed back on the child's day and there has always been a great variety of activities for the children. There regularly seem to be projects on the go, the children have lots of books and the Pre School children get to use an interactive whiteboard. The facilities are excellent and the children really benefit from one very large garden area and a separate, recently improved, area for the Pre School children. Additional efforts are made to get the older children ready for school and this has really helped. My youngest will move on in September and the nursery has been a great foundation. My two boys have been extremely happy at Julia Durbin.

Julia Durbin provides exceptional day care. The staff are caring and warm towards the children, and the nursery are really supportive to the parents. Facilities in the rooms are good. There is a variety of extracurricular events such as fetes and pre-school graduation too which is a great for the children, and for the parents to be involved in your child's time at the nursery. The management team are approachable and very helpful, and there is always a friendly welcome each day. My boys have been very happy here.

As a first time parent and nursery nurse myself, I felt very dubious about my son starting nursery, Julia Durbin Day nursery made me and my son feel very welcome and valued. The management team helped me and my son through a very stressful
time with settling in and often mopped up my tears and eased my anxiety with leaving my son for the first time. Whilst settling in, my son, in particular, found it difficult separating from me but the 'Butterfly Room' always made these drop-offs prompt, effective and less heart-wrenching each time. My son is now fully settled and thrives in his stimulating environment he is learning and developing rapidly and the staff always work in partnership so we have consistency at home and at the nursery.
I cannot recommend this nursery enough with its outstanding environment but above all with the excellent dedicated care conscious staff that make this nursery excel.

Since my little one started last year, she has grown a lot at this nursery. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The large garden for the little ones to play in, is wonderful and a major reason we decided on this nursery.

My son went to Julia Durbin since he was a year old and progressed through the room until nearly three.

He was very happy here and formed strong bonds with other children and with his key workers. He loves being active and running around the big garden at Julia Durbin which was a huge plus. Knowling he was happy and well-cared for made it much easier for me to return to work.

My daughter has attended Julia Durbin Day Nursery for over 3 years & I have to say the nursery has been exceptional. She has developed so well and has learnt so much to help prepare her for when she starts school. The staff are friendly, helpful & have shown on numerous occasions great support to each child.

Both of my children have attended Julia Durbin since aged 8 months and my 2nd child is just leaving to start school. From the beginning, I have felt very confident and comfortable leaving my children in the care of the staff at the nursery. The staff convey a genuine interest and care for each child and have dealt very well with the occasional difficult times, like when my son struggled with the change when moving up a room - the staff know how to deal with the parents as well as the children! I like the emphasis on outdoor play. Communication from staff to parents is great, with a daily written report for the younger ones and a weekly memo for the whole nursery. Importantly this also adapts in response to feedback from parents. The admin processes are efficient and well organised. No hesitation at all in recommending the nursery.

This is indeed a bit emotional as our daughter will be leaving Julia Durbin soon due to attending her first school in September 2016.

We have been pleased with the level of care Julia Durbin has provided for our daughter. This was absolutely priceless. We researched many daycare facilities within the area (Oxford) and selected Julia Durbin because of their high-quality development/care program.

Our daughter has made many friends and the bonding she has made with her teachers is as strong as with her own family members.

I must admit that her second family after her parents is Julia Durbin, and we will always feel very honoured to recommend this nursery as it deserves this.

Thank you again ' Team Julia Durbin ' for taking an excellent and inimitable care of our daughter and every other child. Not only from a caring aspect but also through your brilliant management process, you have made our decision absolutely correct and well taken.

Our daughter started pre-school when she was 2yrs 10 months. Having been looked after at home till then, this was a big change for her. The staff were brilliant with helping her settle in over the first few months and she really thrived. The care they provide is wonderful and one can really see the lovely relationships they have with the children. Although our daughter had three changes to her key worker this year, each transition was dealt with and communicated well. The children have the opportunity to engage in numerous different learning activities both indoors and outdoors. The gardens are spacious and well set up and the environment feels safe. The graduation ceremony they organised was just such a lovely and emotional way to say goodbye. We have always been very pleased with the learning and development opportunities, the great communication from the teams and the professional way the nursery and its staff operate. We would gladly recommend Julia Durbin to any parents.

My daughter has attended Julia Durbin oxford since 2014. They have been a real fantastic team and have been there every step of the way for my daughter. From the first day and leaving her there I was feeling so sad but to coming in and hearing all the wonderful things she was experiencing. The whole team are very supportive and very caring, they are very dedicated to ensuring every child is well looked after and made to feel safe. Over the last nearly 3 years, my daughter's confidence has grown so much and the development has been great. If I ever needed someone to talk too they were there and non-judgemental about individuals situations. The whole place and the journey taken has been such a good I will always remember them and all the love shown to my daughter and me.

Saying goodbye to your little ones is never easy, but it was made much better when he seemed so happy and settled with the staff and other children at Julia Durbin. Everyone was always keen to let us know how his day has gone and the normal wobbles and bumps of learning to toddle were handled very well.
We would have liked to have the option of a subsidised place where he was and would not hesitate to recommend Julia Durbin to our friends and co-workers.

The nursery is well-organised and well-resourced - it's in a purpose-built building and is part of a bigger network of nurseries. The staff seem well-motivated and positive (and ChildBase is well-regarded as an employer).

The response to an incident where a child tail-gated other parents into the car-park illustrated a good approach to security: parents were immediately informed of what had happened, and an extra fence/gate was in place within half a week.

Neil Brett, marketing coordinator at Julia Durbin Day Nursery (Oxford) responded to this review on 30 Aug 2016:

Thank you for your positive review and references to the incident in 2013 which clearly demonstrate two paramount priorities at the nursery – robust security and maintaining the trust of parents. Our qualified internal health and safety team continually monitor the former and we are committed to absolute transparency with parents who help us ensure all children get the best possible nursery experience.

Our daughter has just graduated from Julia Durbin Day Nursery having attended since she was 11 months. We have always been delighted with the care she has received and the way the nursery communicate with parents and respond to feedback. Our daughter has been happy and well supported as she has developed over the years and we feel she has been well prepared for the challenge of starting school next month. She is confident with the nursery staff and has built strong friendships within her class. The garden is amazing and we particularly love the emphasis on outdoor play in all weather. We are pleased that her baby brother is now just starting nursery and look forward to seeing him flourish there.

My daughter has been attending since she was 10 months old. It took her a little while to adjust to going to nursery due to her personality but her key person has helped smooth the transition and she now loves her time there.
They have a lot more on offer than other nurseries as they seem to do lots of fun activities as well as having a fantastic selection of toys and books. The baby garden is well equipped. They have catered for lots of our special requirements including cloth nappies and it is as probably as close to being cared for at home as you can get in this sort of childcare environment. It is a lot more expensive than other nursery options in the area but the little touches make it worth the extra cost.

It has meant an enormous amount to us as a family to have had such wonderful support from the whole team at Julia Durbin, over the last 4 years. Until I became a parent, I really had no appreciation of how important great childcare is for both parents and children, especially in these early years. When I first signed my eldest son up to Caterpillars in 2012, I was such a nervous mum, and he was such an emotional baby! But with your help and nurture, he has blossomed into a wonderfully confident, sociable boy. And I'm so much more confident too (although the disorganisation and forgetfulness are incurable). Bringing my second son along in 2012 was a wonderful experience, he slotted right on in, and has been so loved by all of the staff. What an enormous difference it made to me when I had a toddler and a newborn, to know that I could bring them to a safe, happy, comfortable place.

Thank you, to the whole team.

My son recently started here and has settled in brilliantly. The team are dedicated to his security and development and each individual care team member has shown a caring attitude towards him. His key worker, is outstanding, as is the room leader (Bumblebee Room).
I have confidence leaving him in their care, knowing he is well looked after, stimulated and happy.

My daughter is just leaving Julia Durbin to start school, she has attended since she was 2 and a half. She has completely enjoyed her time at the nursery, I am sure because she has received such good care there. She tells me that she will miss all the grown ups very much. I have found everyone at the nursery to be professional and friendly, the nursery is very well resourced with lovely outdoor space, good toys, and the food is, according to my daughter, very nice! I would certainly recommend the nursery to anyone.

I would like to thank all members of staff that have helped with the care of my child. She has come on in leaps and bounds whilst attending the Julia Durbin Day Nursery, and whilst it was at the top of our price range, I couldn't have sent her anywhere else.

We as parents have been impressed with the level of education, the variety of meals and the care and compassion provided each day. Being able to go to work without a worry and knowing our child is in very capable hands has been more than relieving, this is just something money cannot buy.
