Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Young Sussex Nursery (Brighton) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 57 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Young Sussex Nursery (Brighton) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 25 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.844 for Young Sussex Nursery (Brighton) is calculated as follows: ( (576 Excellents x 5) + (104 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 681 Ratings = 4.844

  • 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 Young Sussex Nursery (Brighton) is based on 25 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 18.2 positive Reviews (91 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 25 Reviews ÷ 18.2 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.

My child has attended Young Sussex since he was 6 months old and is due to leave next year when he starts school - which will be very sad. I have nothing but praise for the nursery and staff who I have found to be friendly and helpful. My son has made lots of friends and has developed a great deal due to his time at the nursery.

We couldn't be happier with Young Sussex. Our two children attend and we feel their care and development at Young Sussex is second to none. They are always happy to attend and have such close bonds with the teachers. As parents, we feel happy leaving them there for the day knowing that not only are all their needs being met but they are being nurtured and genuinely cared for by the fantastic staff and management.

We have had a wonderful experience with Young Sussex so far. Our daughter settled in really well and she seems to enjoy herself very much, eats well, is well cared for and takes part in lots of activities. She adores the staff who are warm and welcoming. The organisation and management is excellent and they've been very helpful and accommodating to our needs.

Our little boy started at Young Sussex a couple of months ago and we couldn't be happier with how amazing the staff have been. They have been so helpful with settling him in and the daily updates and photos reassure us that he is having a good time and is very happy when we leave him there. I would definitely recommend the nursery to anyone wanting their child to go there.

My daughter has been at this nursery for just over a year and all staff have been brilliant. They have given her lots of individual support and helped immensely with her development. As she has moved into a different group she has had problems with eating and sleeping. They have done everything to help encourage her and continue to do so. As her speech is improving it is clear that she is encouraged to say 'please', 'thank you' and 'your're welcome', which is really nice to see. Everyone here is always kind and friendly and do anything they can to help when there's a problem, for example when changing core sessions. We, and our daughter are really happy with Young Sussex and would definitely recommend it.

Young Sussex has exceeded all our expectations. Our daughter really enjoys her time there and developed a whole range of skills with both the Bear and Tiger cubs. She has grown in confidence and is learning skills which are important now but also will be invaluable when she goes to school.

The staff are incredibly friendly. Our daughter loves them all.

From first contact, the staff and managers were helpful, welcoming and professional. My child has settled in quickly and I believe this is down to the environment and staff. He loves the crafts he does here and we love putting his pictures on the fridge! I am confident he is being cared for in a safe and stimulating place.

This is a lovely nursery. It's big, but feels smaller because the children are often in smaller groups. The facilities are great, really spacious, and my daughter has settled in well. The staff are lovely too!

After a bad experience with a different nursery, we opted to change to this one. FANTASTIC!!!! My child is very happy so it was definitely the best decision I have made. He is learning more by the day and looks forward to going to nursery.

Great staff, a great nursery in general. All the kids love it, ours loved it too. Sad to be leaving, but moving away so no option to stay. We'd been going there for 2.5 years and not a bad word to say about Young Sussex.

Since we chose Young Sussex, Dyke Road as the nursery for our daughter, the experience we have had has been of the highest standard. She settled into the environment extremely easily and all of the staff made her (and us) feel welcome.

The range of activities and education of the children was always first class, they were professional, friendly and she always enjoyed going there. The nursery provided regular feedback on how she was developing and encouraged her to learn new skills and respect other children. The nursery has set her up for the transition from nursery to school life, which she has also embraced.

We would highly recommend Young Sussex Nursery, a well run, highly effective and excellent nursery.

I highly recommend this nursery. Both my children (now fourteen months and three years) started here at ten months old and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience even when I have had to put them in for long hours from 7am to 7pm!
The nursery is a fun place with lots going on to keep them entertained and distracted and the quality of staff and care is excellent. My children had a real bond with key workers and the other nursery staff so they were always keen to attend.
There is plenty of space inside and out and lots of messy play. The nursery are very flexible which was great as I am a contractor so I would often have to alter sessions. Also, they are one of the few if not only nurseries that I could find that did long hours for when I was working away or in London.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. My son attended from eleven months - four years and left when it was time to start school. During this time, there was never a single occasion where I felt concerned about anything. Every member of the care staff was exceptionally good at their jobs and were always cheerful and positive and enthusiastic about their work. The nursery is also very well managed and communication with parents is very good. My son has also been very well prepared for the learning and skills needed for school. The nursery has helped him to develop confidence and social skills and he just had a really happy time there. I am grateful to the nursery for giving him valuable experience.

Lovely, enthusiastic staff and lots of varied activities to keep the kids engaged. A kind, nurturing environment - one happy child! Young Sussex is a great nursery and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her three years there. Not only did she make lots of friends and positive memories, all the important life skills she learnt are now helping her make the transition into her first year at school and the big, wide world in general.
Additionally, as a freelancer, the management team were very supportive and flexible to our ever-changing requirements which was incredibly helpful.
In a nutshell :
Is it a fun, friendly place for little children? Yes
Do I miss the output from baking sessions? Yes (mostly, bar the pumpkin pies)
Would I recommend it? Absolutely.

Young Sussex is a great nursery and the staff are friendly, caring and knowledgeable.
My daughter started at six months and stayed all the way through to the last day. Now at 'big girl school' she still remembers and talks about the great times she had at Young Sussex.
Spacious and well equipped with an outside area and a most loved muddy kitchen.
Loads of activities, firemen visits, vet visits, outdoor days ... can't fail.
Would definitely recommend it.

My son attended Young Sussex on Dyke Road for 3 years.
The whole team at Young Sussex are not only caring, but we found that our son has had a fantastic start to his education, learning all the basics, required to set him up for Primary School.
Nothing was ever an issue with the management with having to swap days around to accommodate holidays etc and I was kept updated regularly with his development.
My son loved his time at this nursery, and we would recommend it to anyone.

Both my children attended Young Sussex from nine months old, to when they were four years old and always skipped in each day with happy faces. The staff are all very caring and really get to know each child as individuals. The nursery itself offers a lot for the children including yoga, music lessons, cooking and forest school, all included in the price. It is a safe, clean environment and on the rare occasion when a problem arose the staff dealt with it quickly and professionally. Now that my children have left my lasting impression of the nursery is one of the excellent care, attention and professionalism the whole staff gave towards my children. I have no reservations in recommending this nursery.

Both my children have attended this nursery - and they have both enjoyed it - to the point that my nearly seven-year-old, still says he misses nursery! Our daughter came into nursery suffering from an anxiety disorder, which meant she did not settle for a good eight months. From a tiny anxious and nervous little person, she developed into a very confident four-year-old who loves playing and communicating with other children. She has just started school without a single issue, and if it wasn't for her key worker, she would definitely have struggled. Her keyworker (and other staff!) have gone beyond to accommodate her needs, adjusted their approach and they have just been absolutely amazing with her. They have listened to us as parents, and that's so, so important. I can not recommend Young Sussex enough - they played a big role in changing my daughter from a shy flower, into a big blooming sunflower. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true. Thank you once again and see you soon!

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.

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.

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 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.

We were extremely happy to talk to the staff at the nursery. They have really looked after our daughter. She is coming on leaps and bounds since starting nursery. The review was very informative and we have planned the next steps for our daughter.

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.

Young Sussex was our choice for our 2 month old to help out after I went back to work. 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.

Both my sons attended Young Sussex Dyke Road from when they were 1 year olds up until they started school. The boys loved their time there. The staff are so warm and really care for the children. And they think up a fantastic range of activities for all ages. I fully recommend this nursery.

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 son has been at Young Sussex for two years now and loves it. He bounces in to his room in the mornings and hugs his friends and starts playing. The workers are excellent really caring and have been great at helping him learn to enjoy books, colouring, cooking and everything really. I highly recommend it.

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.

I have sent both of my sons to this nursery and I can honestly say that it gets better every day. The staff are considerate, caring and most importantly for any child, good fun. The range of activities has broadened over the years too. Would definitely recommend to any parent.

Young Sussex have provided excellent quality care to all three of my children and are always striving to develop the environment, the skills of their workers and the activities that the children partake in. I have always felt that my children are safe and well cared for at Young Sussex and my children have always been happy to go to nursery.
