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 4.944 for Growing Up Green Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (169 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 4.818 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Growing Up Green Nursery is based on 9 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.818

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

Very professional nursery with good blend of fun play with structured learning and progression to create well rounded little kids - I feel confident that they are doing the best for my son. Most importantly he loves going and has made many friends along the way.

Our two children have attended Growing up Green over the past 6 years and I could not fault our experience. Both children have loved their time at the nursery with the aunties and uncles of Growing Up Green, developing their educational and social skills ahead of starting school. They have benefitted from a huge variety of activities and experiences, and grown palettes that now enjoy a wide variety of different healthy foods. We have recommended this nursery to many friends and also to family - with our children’s cousin now also attending.

Excellent care from the brilliant staff that genuinely care, are interested and enjoy looking after young children.

I can’t recommend Growing Up Green, Preston Road highly enough, my son is ever so happy there. When we were choosing a nursery a year and a half ago, we actually looked at Growing Up Green as an afterthought - having already chosen a different nursery locally, and we were so glad we did as we came away as a family very sure that this was by far the best nursery we’d seen (out of 4 in the area). The staff are all lovely, and I feel my son is very well cared for.

Our daughter has been at Growing Up Green Nursery since last September and has thrived every day. She loves her aunties and has made actual baby friends! All the staff are wonderful and a credit to the nursery, they all know her name and are always smiling and helpful. Someone will always call me if they are concerned about anything (sleep routine, eating etc) and I know she is in the best hands possible. She never cries when we drop her off (my biggest fear) as she loves the cuddles and attention she gets straight away, I'm lucky if I get a wave goodbye!
My nephew is also there and they love spotting each other and are encouraged to play together in the lovely garden. She's learnt so much and her confidence in walking and talking has gone through the roof. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

The nursery staff know my child and encourage her to get involved in all sorts of brilliant activities.
She is happy and contented at the nursery, telling me about the fun she had with the staff and her friends.
She is nurtured and cared for while I work, I feel I couldn’t have found a better nursery. All the staff are friendly and happy, nothing is too much trouble.

My son attended Growing Up Green on Preston Road from the age of 9 months and has just left to start school. We have been very happy with the quality of service provided. It is a small nursery with a nurturing environment and our son has always enjoyed spending time there. Staff come across as very professional and the nursery is well managed. My son was diagnosed with autism when he was 3. The nursery made an application for funding towards a 1-1 worker and dealt with this in a professional manner before we were even aware he was eligible for extra support. They went the extra mile to ensure that the person they employed was the best possible person to work with my son which has made a huge difference to his development.

My son loves going to Growing Up Green. He loves all his Aunties and Uncles who are always thinking up fun and exciting things for the Toddlers to do, from building castles and their own train station to watching caterpillars turn into butterflies.
A musician comes every Friday to play his guitar and my son doesn't stop talking about him all weekend. He loves the garden, which is really big and has lots of different activities for the children. The food is great and the staff have always been supportive and very friendly.

Both of my daughters have attended Growing Up Green Nursery from babies and they love it here! The staff are warm and approachable and the curriculum is varied and engaging. We continue to see how both children are flourishing, based on their experiences and interactions at nursery. A particular reason I would recommend this nursery, is that they have four rooms from babies through to preschool, so play and learning is focused really well to these age groups. Highly recommended!!

I cannot recommend Growing Up Green highly enough. We were originally recommended by a friend who's son attended, and so both my boys have attended over the last 3 years. The staff are all so friendly and caring and both boys loved going every day and thrived here. My youngest still attends and he has developed strong relationships with staff and other children. The food is great, and the nursery and garden are a lovely environment. Any communications I've had with the management staff have always been dealt with professionally and swiftly. 10 out of 10.

Our son has been at Growing Up Green since he turned one in the summer of 2013. He is starting school this September and I can honestly say that he has been so happy at nursery. We have been extremely impressed with the quality of childcare provided over the past 3 years.
He has flourished and loved going for his 2 days a week and formed close caring relationships with the wonderful staff. He has been stimulated and nurtured and had lots of fun. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter has been at GUG for nearly four years and will soon be leaving to start school in September. I cannot praise the nursery highly enough. The standard of care provided throughout her time there has been exceptional and she has been extremely happy and settled since she started as a baby. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is the staff that make it such a wonderful place - they are caring and kind and they really know the children individually and treat them with respect and affection. The food they are given is wonderful and home-made with an amazing lunch and snacks included in the daily rate. As a family, we have been so happy with GUG and would recommend them to any parent looking for the best nursery for their children.
