    The Average Rating of 4.848 for Young Sussex Nursery (Brighton) is calculated as follows: ( (346 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 407 Ratings = 4.848

My daughter has been with the nursery for 9 months. She is very happy and has settled in really well. The Senior Nursery Practitioner always gives me honest feedback about how she is getting on. My daughter's Grandpa is battling cancer so I've been worried about her emotional well-being, however the nursery fully supported this news and I've felt secure that my daughter has a safe, happy place to come to. She seems to get on well with all the children and is learning quickly.

When my daughter started with tasters the staff were very good and she was very happy. When she started school she has been very happy to come in and I feel very at ease to leave her. I am very happy with the staff and the nursery.

Our daughter had a very good time at Young Sussex Nursery at Dyke Road.
She made friends and was looked after by her main carer and the other carers very well. It was
nice to see a lot of photos and a few videos posted in Tapestry!
My daughter enjoyed the yoga classes, playing in the lovely outdoors area, doing lots of drawings and
crafts.
My daughter also enjoyed visiting the ladies at the office on her way out of the nursery and chatting with them!
It is sad that my daughter has to leave Young Sussex nursery but it's time to move on.
All of our best wishes to Young Sussex staff.

This is a wonderful nursery. The staff are so warm and welcoming and my daughter has thrived in the three months she has attended.
She adores her key worker and talks about her all the time at home. All the staff seem to genuinely enjoy their job and give us thorough updates at the end of the day.
The nursery is clean and well managed with lots of facilities including a large garden. I would highly recommend it.

I was so sad to be going back to work when my baby boy was 10 months but I was totally reassured by the wonderfully kind and attentive staff.
My son has thrived and has learnt so many things that I couldn't even consider showing him, like painting with black paint! Yikes!
He is always happy, clean and very loved.
I can't recommend this nursery highly enough. It truly has made going back to work a breeze!
Thank you Young Sussex

We are extremely happy about the care/education and service provided by Young Sussex for our daughter. She thrives at the nursery. She enjoys the days she spends with the staff and other users of the nursery and her personal skill development has been enhanced by the activities provided.
We are given daily updates from hours slept/food eaten/activities which provide us with a comprehensive summary of what she had done - leaving us confident in the staff.
Our daughter has a great relationship with her key person whom she adores.

We love Dyke Road Young Sussex. Our daughter has settled in really well, she adores her key worker and looks forward to going every time which is fabulous. Her learning, speech, social skills and general understanding have come on leaps and bounds since joining. She has made so many friends and talks about them all the time at home which is lovely.

We have been delighted with the nursery over the last 2 years. Our children have been extremely happy and love all the staff there. The staff have been fantastic settling the children in and enabling them to learn, play and have fun. The range of activities is great and yoga is a current favourite!
The staff are very attentive and offer advice when needed and support the children and parents. The management staff have been fantastic especially when adding in extra sessions at the last minute!! It has been wonderful to see our children developing in safe nurturing environment and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery.

We are delighted that Young Sussex had vacancies for our children. Both of them have been regular attenders since they were six months. The staff are wonderful and have always looked after them so well. We couldn't be happier. Our son is a regular yoga fan thanks to all the activities he gets to experience.

I was pretty nervous taking my son to another nursery as at his previous one he did not settle into. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find the whole experience easy and efficient. The staff here are so understanding and have made me feel at ease throughout. I have total confidence in their ability to nurture, teach and be kind to my son. In particular the manager has been superb in her understanding and patience and my son's key worker has been fantastic. I'm so happy that my son is so happy here!

Young Sussex and all of its fabulous staff made it possible for me to return to work knowing that my little bot was happy, safe and stimulated on a daily basis. A transition that I didn't imagine was possible. He certainly benefits from the huge variety of activities scheduled each day which I would never be able to match at home. Thank you.

We choose to start from 2 days a week and in the past 3 months its been a pleasure to see her settle in with great staff. Fantastic monitoring and development and lovely premises. Staff have been amazing. Highly recommended.

My son went to young sussex for only 6 months but he really enjoyed it there. My son is bilingual and his key teacher could speak Turkish too. His key teacher was amazing and got my son involved with other kids very quickly. Their garden is a great space which is well looked after and really safe. The toilets are always clean and tidy. I would like to thank each member of Sussex nursery for doing an amazing job.

I have had three children attend young Sussex at all different ages. Young Sussex has been a warm, nurturing environment for my children. They provide a wide variety of fun, developmentally appropriate activities and maintain a high standard of safety. The management is very approachable. They will take the time to sit with you and try their best to meet your scheduling needs, as well as being sensitive to the overall needs of families and individual children.

My two daughters have attended Young Sussex Dyke Road since September 2013, the older one is about to leave to start school. I have been very happy with the care provided and would definitely recommend it to other parents. The staff are all enthusiastic, caring and make the effort to update you on your child's day and overall progress. Our children settled in easily and have formed good attachments to the staff looking after them. Lots of fun activities are planned, the days are structured but with plenty of free play with a progression to a more structured routine as children get older. Visits from external providers also take place such as music classes, The Outdoors Project and African drumming. Meals and snacks are healthy and varied. There is a pleasant outside space which the children all access every day. Staff will work with parents to ensure that a child's routine and individual needs are catered for, and will devise and use reward charts and methods to encourage desired behaviours as needed, such as for potty training, always in conjunction with discussion with parents. There are excellent communication methods e.g. day sheets, link books between home and nursery, Theme Leaflets for each cycle of learning, newsletters and parents' evenings. The managing staff are very prompt at responding to telephone calls and emails, and are always happy to answer queries and help. The most impressive (and I feel unusual) aspect is the amazing flexibility offered - various types of sessions are offered, with the option to add earlier starts and finishes as required, and swapping of days if needed - they are almost always able to accommodate this, and it has been a godsend for us! No hesitation in recommending.

From the beginning of my time with Young Sussex (Sept 2012), I've always found the staff members to be very approachable and extremely helpful wherever possible. I've always been very grateful for all that they do to support and assist and particularly appreciated this during our first year with Young Sussex. It was a very difficult time of adjustment, especially as we had just moved to Brighton knowing no one and I worked so far away in from my little girl.

We also feel very lucky to have gained the amazing after nursery support from two of the carers there. They continue to be a part of our little family helping wherever possible. We are truly grateful that Young Sussex brought them to us.

I know my daughter absolutely loves it there and has learnt a great deal to prepare her for her big entry into school next year.

Young Sussex is a nice place to go to and particularly so when you have that comfort you so desire leaving your little loves there without you.
