Manor House Nursery is a calm, caring environment where children can discover, absorb, learn, play and have fun.

The nursery is based upon the Early Years Foundation Stage with elements of the Montessori system, an approach that draws its principles from the natural development of the child.

A variety of sessions are offered including a morning, a full day and an extended day.

They have a dedicated nursery manager who leads a team of fully qualified early years practitioners, all of whom are highly trained to build positive relationships with every child, deliver the best possible care and promote excellent academic standards. Nursery children are divided into small working groups, each with their own key member of staff.

The nursery is set in beautiful surroundings and has its own Forest School and purpose-built early years facilities. These include two wonderful play areas: an outdoor all-weather playground which includes sand and water play, climbing frames, lots of bicycles, a train and much-loved pirate ship and an orchard garden.

Their purpose-built classrooms are located in a quiet, secure area of the school and provide a dedicated environment for your child. All classrooms have easy access to an all-weather outdoor playground and the children also benefit from regular outdoor learning sessions in The Dell – an outdoor classroom set amidst the extensive grounds where the children regularly explore and engage in nature walks and practical learning activities.

Reviews

9.3 Manor House Nursery and Toddler Group has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.313)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Manor House Nursery and Toddler Group 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Manor House Nursery and Toddler Group in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.896 for Manor House Nursery and Toddler Group is calculated as follows: ( (129 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Manor House Nursery and Toddler Group 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.667

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

Manor House Nursery is a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment made even more incredible by the manager and the other staff who work so hard to make the children's first years memorable, fulfilling and above all fun! The children thrive educationally, socially and start to become confident little people! Thank you, Manor House Nursery.

This is such a great place - friendly, caring, supportive, and well resourced. I have a daughter who will be moving on to school in September. She's having such a good time here. Her interests are catered for, she is encouraged to try her hand at everything on offer. There is a nice balance between indoor and outdoor activity. The extended provision is excellent for when I need to work a longer day, too. Highly recommend.

I moved my daughter from one of top nurseries in the area to Manor House as felt the previous nursery was getting very crowded - she was in Manor House nursery for a year and it was just wonderful. She was very very very happy and it was a great preparation for reception. So many benefits to it being part of a bigger school - they have now extended the offering to boys and extended hours for working parents - it's a no brainier if you are in the area and looking for a nursery. Couldn't recommend it more :-)

Our 2 1/2 year old started this term and has had a brilliant experience. She has never been apart from me but after just a few sessions settle quickly and have made friends. She trusts and likes the staff. Today she is even on a school outing. So happy our daughter goes here. We love it. Staff make children feel special and really cared for. What more could a parent ask for?

My daughter joined Manor House Nursery in September 2016 and settled quicker than I could have imagined - just 2 days! The staff are wonderfully friendly and attentive and the girls do a wonderful array of activities each session. We couldn't be happier with our choice and would highly recommend Manor House.

My youngest daughter joined the Nursery in September 2015 and her confidence and independence has grown steadily with each week. All the staff are enthusiastic and caring from the main Nursery staff to the music and drama teachers that come in weekly. It is always a warm and welcoming environment for the children and parents and my daughter loves it.
The children are treated as individuals and I can see that each of my daughters needs are met.

The teaching is gently introduced through play and if they show more of an interest this is readily supported and encouraged. With an all weather outdoor play area, walks in the grounds and large classrooms we could not be happier. I also feel happy to know that with another year in Nursery she will be fully prepared for Reception in Sept 2017; knowing her phonics and will have the social skills to work and play with others.

My daughter (2 and a half years old) started at Manor House Nursery one month ago. We visited a number of nurseries in a 15 mile radius and this was by far the friendliest, warmest, and one with the best facilities (the benefits of being attached to a school with expansive grounds). The girls are given many exciting and creative tasks (she comes back with paintings, collages, homemade necklaces, cooking, etc on a daily basis). I have no doubt that it is a very enriching and stimulating environment for her. The nursery staff are very approachable and caring, and my daughter is already very fond of them. The school have also been very accommodating and flexible in helping us find a schedule that works.

Lovely environment, smaller groups so good, one to one learning. Mix with older girls on some lessons/activities so helps with development and encourages girls to challenge themselves. Enjoying seeing and hearing the development progress my daughter is making. Also great flexibility in swapping days adding sessions where possible. Lovely outdoor play area/grounds for exploring.

It is a very friendly, safe and lovely environment for little ones. Not too large groups and all girls. They are also very accommodating in swapping days and adding sessions where possible. I like the calmness and manners installed in the little ones.
