Reviews

9.9 Green Roots Nursery & Preschool has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.915)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Green Roots Nursery & Preschool 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 54 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Green Roots Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 53 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 4.915 for Green Roots Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (593 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 645 Ratings = 4.915

  • 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 Green Roots Nursery & Preschool is based on 53 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 53 Reviews ÷ 14.4 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.

Being a first-time parent is hard enough but that doesn't stop life's other stressful events from happening too i.e sick pets, moving house, new job etc. I have turned up at the nursery in various states and the staff have always been happy to see us, happy to talk, genuinely interested and caring about whats going on. With all of life's craziness, Green Roots is my stable and have not let me down at all.

Green Roots is a very professional day nursery, my son loves his time here. He is always keen to attend, the staff are very attentive and fill their days with interesting, stimulating and fun activities. I love the fact they spend so much time outside playing, whatever the weather.

We have been extremely happy with the level of care shown to our daughter, she has been going there since she was 9 months old (now 3). She always enjoys going to nursery and staff always make her feel welcome and she has gained lots of friends. The staff are happy to make time to speak with us (if required) to discuss our daughters development and also have guided us as parents if we have asked for additional support- such as potty training. The out door play area is excellent.

As a parent, I feel so confident and comfortable leaving my daughter at this centre and I really feel like my concerns and feelings are listened too.

The nursery has been excellent since the moment my daughter joined a year ago age ten months. The environment first attracted me, with its free flow ethos and clean new equipment. The garden is super and sensory dream for babies and toddlers. I loved the organic, and Eco-friendly values of the nursery, and the diverse multicultural menu. When my daughter developed food allergies they were able to accommodate her with ease. The staff are super and the keyworker system
Is excellent, taking care to provide comprehensive reports so I still feel included in my daughters day and her enjoyment. The flexible policy of the nursery in relation to the sessions offered and the ability to swap them has made getting a work-life balance a lot easier. The managers genuinely care about each and every child and are responsive and helpful. My daughter beams at the prospect of nursery, it's made returning to work a lot easier.

Green Roots is a friendly & professionally run nursery. I have full confidence in leaving my 18-month-old there - knowing that she will be safe and also stimulated. Every day she has a different learning focus. I have seen the impact first hand as she has grown in confidence significantly since she began at Green Roots.

My little girl has attended Green Roots since 13 months old and is now 3.5 years old. She has always enjoyed attending and as a working mum, there is nothing more reassuring than waving off a happy child in the mornings. She has always had outstanding care from all those that work with her.

My two children (3 and 4 now) attend for one school day. They are very happy at Green Roots and are very busy and stimulated all day long.
The staff are very friendly and approachable.
I love the fact that they are able to get fresh air and exercise and play outdoors in all weathers.
The food is fresh and home cooked. I only wish my two would be a bit more adventurous and try different things!

It is very safe and secure.

My daughter is extremely happy at Green Roots and the staff are wonderful.
I love the babydays website where the day's activities and photos get uploaded to, a great way to track her development progress.
She has a dairy intolerance and she is able to manage this at the nursery by being on the menu b - which is for special diets.

We love the free flow environment that allows the children to play indoors or outdoors anytime they choose. Everything is well looked after and the facilities excellent. The level of care is outstanding and our children are so happy and settled.
Our eldest daughter has enjoyed so many experiences such as, beach school and visiting the library. Our youngest too has enjoyed the visitors that regularly come to the nursery.
The quality of the food was very important to us and we know that at Green Roots our children get fantastic meals, freshly prepared with excellent ingredients. They are offered meals that we like to cook at home and not the usual 'children's food' you get at some settings. The online diary is updated each day with a summary of what the children have done, how well they've eaten, progress observations and photos. We are so thankful that our children are having such a positive experience and we would recommend Green Roots without reservation.

Since attending Green Roots my son has come on leaps and bounds with regards to his confidence, social skills and language.
The staff are attentive and caring and support through any big changes, e.g toilet training as well as usual development milestones.
The weeks are well planned out with exciting and engaging activities, the children are encouraged to use the lovely outside space. The menu is diverse and all made on site by the great chefs.
It's not the cheapest nursery but it is worth every penny and the 'babydays' system gives great peace of mind for when you are not with your child.

We love this nursery.
Our son loves it too and is so happy to attend each day. His key worker knows him so well, as do the others who care for him. We are so confident that they provide an amazing level of care to all the children.
There is a huge variety of activities across the week, including visitors such as Spanish singing or the police, which is fantastic and free flow to the garden, which means lots of fresh air every day.
Their menu is better than I could ever concoct at home, with a taste of the world across the week.
I will freely admit that this is not a cheap nursery but value for money is excellent and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

We were so nervous of our shy girl starting nursery and weren't sure what to expect. We had heard good things about Green Roots but also saw other recommended places which had been a long way from what we would have wanted.
Since the very beginning, we have found Green Roots to be second to none in everything - location, warmth, healthy food, flexibility, wonderful activities and wonderfully friendly staff.
We were told by friends it could take months for our child to settle in, but after just three weeks our little one was waving us goodbye, blowing kisses to all the staff and growing daily in confidence.
We could not be happier. Highly recommend!

Green Roots nursery is fantastic. Our son has been attending for the last two years. The staff are great! Professional, caring and always helpful with any needs of the children, helping them through their stages of development. The feedback and daily updates on our sons day and progress help us to see what he's been up to each day and identify where he needs additional support. I have recommended Green Roots to friends without hesitation as I feel they provide a great environment for our son.

I cannot recommend Green Roots enough. We have been at Green Roots for almost 3 years, I now have 2 children there and both a flourishing beyond belief.
The owners are caring and know every child, they go above and beyond expectations. All staff are amazing and approachable. What this nursery offers is exceptional from the setting to the garden and regular trips out. They are alway making improvements. I'm not sure what's left.

My son has been at Green Roots for 3 years and we have been so pleased with the nursery. The staff are caring, excellent facilities, lovely food cooked by the onsite chef and there are lots of activities. We know he'll be so sad to leave this August when he starts school as he enjoys coming to the nursery so much.

The service provided by Green Roots is exceptional in every way. I am delighted with the range and type of stimulation available to my daughter and am regularly surprised by the team's innovative ideas which are turned into educational fun e.g. arranging for a bus to come on site for a week as part of road safety activities, beach school, growing plants. Parents are encouraged to get involved and have the opportunity to comment on new menus, attend open days to see what their children get up to and this is in addition to the daily, personalised reports and photos on Babydays.
The atmosphere at Green Roots is extremely friendly yet 100% professional. I've complete peace of mind that my daughter is secure, safe and has bags of fun on a daily basis. I've already recommended the nursery to multiple other Mums and I'm pleased to be an advocate for their services.

My son attended Green Roots for a year and a half before he started school and I was very impressed with the way his key workers identified his strengths and ensured he was sufficiently stimulated and encouraged in his preparation for school as well as how his key workers helped us to encourage his positive social interaction with others and how to be empathetic to others.

My daughter is still at Green Roots and since she started, she had just turned 1 year old (she is now 2 1/2) her confidence has blossomed, she is less clingy on me and she building relationships with her key workers and her peers. I am particularly impressed with my daughter's key worker and the care she puts into her regular reviews of my daughter's progress.
Finally, I have been impressed with both the number of extra visits from firemen, policemen, nurses etc... that are arranged and the music and dance lessons, as well as the visits to the beach and tuppeny barn Green Roots, arrange at preschool age- my son loved these trips out.
Well done Green Roots!

The food is fresh, highly varied and healthy. The additional extra classes from visiting groups are really great and the outdoor play facilities outstanding.

Green Roots Nursery provides a clean, spacious safe and secure environment for my child. The staff are friendly, approachable and very professional. Green Roots provide a lot of educational play and activities for the children in their care and the 'babydays' website they use to provide you with information about what your child has done for the day is invaluable.
The biometric entry system adds a level of security that I found very reassuring. The onsite chef is amazing providing a wide variety of excellent food, that always smells gorgeous.

My son has attended Green Roots since he was 8 months old and he absolutely loves going every week. The staff are amazing and I could not find one fault with the service we have received so far. The children take part in such a wide range of activities both inside and outside which is ideal for my son as he loves the sandpit and playing with the water trays. Green Roots have always supplied everything, I literally just put some clothes in his Green Roots Bag, that they provided. Food is excellent and varies so much.
I would 110% recommend Green Roots Nursery to anyone.

Both of our children have attended and our older child was well prepared by her key worker for starting school which was a great help to us. They are always ready with help and advice with tricky behaviour as well.

I cannot praise Green Roots & the team high enough. Our daughter has thrived under their care and every day we see her develop into a thoughtful and intelligent young lady. Choosing this nursery was one of the best decisions we have ever made and we will be so sad to leave everyone when she starts school in September. We have met some wonderful people and both she (and we!) will miss them so much.

Our child loves coming to nursery, she gets so much out of her experience here. She has the opportunity to do things here that she would otherwise not have. The staff are very good and the daily update from Babysdays is really informative.

Wonderful facility with caring, attentive staff. My little one loves going to nursery and is always talking about the fun things he has done throughout the day. There are fantastic development activities and opportunities on offer here and the setup is just what we need and want.

Green Roots has provided our little girl with excellent care. Friendly staff and an excellent setting have meant we feel our little girl is getting the best care we could find her. Our little girl is thriving at the nursery and seems to be making friends and thriving on learning experiences that are provided. They provide a wide range of food and she certainly eats things she would never eat for us! There seems to be excellent flexibility with sessions which really helps with work. We would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

Super nursery - both of mine have been extremely happy here. Lovely friendly staff, great space indoors and out, super facilities and fabulous opportunities. There are plenty of opportunities to be outdoors which both of mine really enjoyed. The additional classes which are put on such as singing and cooking have been really popular with mine too, lovely opportunities. Daily photos are really great to see too.

My daughter has attended Green Roots for over a year and as a parent, I have been very happy with the care and learning facilities provided. The staff have been fabulous! My daughter has made a wonderful group of close friends in pre-school as well friends with all other nursery children. Green Roots is unique in offering children a wide variety of classes such as Diddi Dance, Spanish lessons, daily cooking lessons and various activities inside and out. The pre-school also provide regular visits to the local library, Chichester nature conservatory and beach club.

The meals are amazing! The chef and cooks provide 3 cooked meals a day and the menu is so varied catering for all dietary requirements.

I couldn't be happier with the nursery and for us one of the selling points was access to outdoors at all times of the year. With a giant sandpit, climbing ship, tunnels, slides and gardener who plants and manages the garden with the children. It truly is a great nursery and pre-school.

Green Roots is absolutely amazing and my daughter has the best time there. All the staff are amazing but in particular one member of staff in the baby room, whom my daughter adores. Everything is done with such professionalism but also with a massive smile and we were sold from the first meeting we had there.

My daughter has only been attending Green Roots for a short time but I can't praise them enough. The nursery is secure, pristine, professional and very accommodating. The staff are fabulous and the daily diaries they complete for each child is brilliant. I received a breakdown of my daughters day and a selection of photos. I felt part of her day even though I wasn't present.

Meals are of a very high standard, I wished I was staying to eat !

When searching for child care, myself and husband visited lots of local nuseries. Green Roots stood out far above the rest for many reasons.

At this point, I honestly can't find one bad thing to say.

10/10 for Green Roots.

More importantly my daughter loves going :)

I am so glad we chose Green Roots Nursery for my daughter. The staff are welcoming, and very friendly. Their interaction is great and my daughter has formed some close relationships with a few members of staff which I feel is really important. My daughter was slow to settle and all members of staff were patient and supportive with her. They really made her feel safe and secure.

The range of activities is brilliant. The children are always busy doing something!
The nursery is a lovely setting. The garden space is amazing and has so many learning opportunities.
I would definitely recommend to anybody who is looking for a nursery in the area.

When my son started at Green Roots he found it difficult to settle at the nursery but the staff, especially his key worker were wonderful with him. They used different approaches to settle him and after one month my son was settled and thoroughly enjoys going to nursery.

They are good although, caring compassionate staff. Each child is catered for with the utmost professionalism. The education and next steps are clear, the ongoing learning experience the children can do is child centred and every day related.
They have an extensive menu but something's I feel that children don't want things they don't know but a bit of home comforts wouldn't go a miss. But nutrition wise they get everything they need. I do feel this is one of the more expensive nurseries but I am happy to pay for somewhere that clearly cares about the children not the money.

My daughter loves going to nursery. She attends three mornings a week and is genuinely excited when she arrives and she takes some convincing to leave at lunchtime! Her key worker has made the transition to nursery so easy for both my daughter and me (as I was rather anxious about leaving my daughter). I would not hesitate to recommend the nursery.

Fantastic setting, my daughter adores this nursery! She's been going since just 5 months old, there's just so much for them to do there - whether they're still tiny like she was when she joined or now at 18 months! Lots of lovely artwork is brought home, it means I can leave the messy play to the nursery and enjoy the less messy play at home :)
They use the outside play areas all year round, my daughter especially loves to play in the sandpit! The nursery provide an excellent variety of food, all hand prepared and home cooked - it smells divine!!
All members of staff are extremely polite and knowledgeable, they go above and beyond to ensure you're happy with their services. I would not hesitate to recommend Green Roots!

Wonderful nursery, can't fault it at all! All staff are well trained, informative, friendly and above all caring and nurturing towards all children. My son loves going to nursery and I love seeing his progress online knowing that he is having an enriching developmental time whilst being cared for at the highest level. Green Roots is a welcome addition to Southbourne and the parents living here and surrounding!
My friend travels from her home in Portsmouth specifically to send her daughter here after my strong recommendation of the nursery and staff. Very pleased that my son will carry on here until he starts school.
The only thing that could make Green Roots any better would be school drops/collects WAC to include older siblings.

Green Roots is an amazing setting. Both my children have attended and one is still there. The staff are friendly, professional and very caring. The facilities are the best I have seen anywhere. The food is out of this world. My children love it at Green Roots and my eldest misses it terribly.
I would highly recommend it to anyone and I always do! The children can go to beach school, go to local places of interest, do gardening, meet people of different professions (dentist/fireman) and learn Spanish and dancing. It is great value for money and definitely prepares them for school with their learning programme. I love it.

We have used a variety of childcare settings and Green Roots is by far the best. My daughter started at nearly 3 and will be moving up to school this September. She has adored the amazing garden facilities, the pre school focus on starting gently to do numbers and phonics and the incredible craft activities that happen daily. My son has been going since he was 4 months and I have always felt super confident in the care the baby room have given him from this young age. They have a brilliant onsite chef as a permanent staff member so the kids are basically fed healthy restaurant standard food for every meal and snack which is a major plus point. The babydays system is great as is the web cams in the parent area (and the coffee!). The main difference to many childcare settings is that ALL the staff are always smiling and happy, they seem motivated and engaged in their work place to a level that is of a real credit to the owners.

Description:

I was delighted to open Green Roots Nursery in September 2013. I’ve always been passionate about childcare and I wanted to set up a nursery that was exceptional in terms of the nurturing care and attention that it gave to the children and also the service that it provided for parents. As an accredited Child-minder for many years, I learnt the importance of understanding each child’s individual needs and the benefits of providing each child with the opportunity to have real life experiences and be active indoors and out.

As a parent of young children myself I recognise the challenges of trying to balance all aspects of family life and we’re determined to help all of parents with this by making things as easy and convenient as possible.
