  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.894 for Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.894

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston is based on 11 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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.

Reviewer Connection to Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston

  • Mother of Child

Both of my children have attended Natural Choice Nursery, full time and have loved it, putting to rest any worries or feelings of guilt I had when returning to work. My eldest daughter was extremely shy as a young child, but the staff nurtured her with great care and affection. She is now at school but is so much more confident thanks to the care she received at NCN.
My son is the complete opposite; cheeky, outgoing and chaotic. The staff encourage his inquisitive and independent nature and are really helping him to develop his speech and communication skills.
I have always felt that the staff at NCN take as much pride and excitement in my children's developmental milestones as I do and are so supportive and encouraging of our own parenting whilst always being willing and on hand to offer support.
We chose NCN because of it's warm, caring and family-like atmosphere and we have not been disappointed.

Our son started here at 14 months old and he has loved every day he's had at Natural Choice Alveston. Staff are warm, nurturing and professional and he has flourished developmentally since starting with them.
They have an excellent feedback system for parents to understand what their children have been up to at the end of the day and also through their online learning journals with photos. The menu is exciting and varied but also healthy and the food always smells amazing.
I can highly recommend the nursery to anyone considering sending their little one there. We really couldn't ask for a better or more lovely team to look after our youngest.

My daughter has been attending Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston since she was 7-months-old, from the moment the door opened we fell in love with it. All the staff are so friendly and whoever opens the door greets us with a smile and a warm welcome. Leaving your precious baby in the care of someone else is the hardest thing to do but at Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston, they make it very easy. My daughter loves her day at nursery. The online journal they use is great, it's updated throughout the day so you can login at any time and see what she has been up to. They really encourage outdoor play which is great as their garden area is lovely. The interaction from the key worker is amazing too, they really do bond with your little one. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston, it really is a fantastic nursery that has so many personal touches it feels like you are leaving your child with your family.

My son has been going to Natural Choice Nurseries in Alveston since he was 12 months old and he loves it. The staff are so friendly and really care about each child. His development really benefits from being in the nursery environment and the staff work really hard to encourage children to learn and develop a sense of independence. The nursery feels very homely and the staff go the extra mile to help parents and children feel comfortable whilst the child is at the nursery. The online journal provides us with updates about what my son has been doing each week whilst at nursery as well as photos which we love looking through. I would thoroughly recommend Natural Choice Nurseries to any parent.

I think that Natural Choice Nurseries Alveston is an amazing place. My daughter first went when she was 11 months and has enjoyed her years there. The staff all work really hard and do a fantastic job. I have always found it to be a warm, friendly place and my daughter has always loved going.

I am so pleased we got a place for my little boy at Natural Choice Nursery Ltd. The care from the staff is excellent. I didn't know what I was doing as this is my first child and the staff could not have been more welcoming and reassuring through the settling in period. That level of care has continued and I feel confident that my son is not only well cared for while I am at work but that he is having a lot of fun. His key worker has been on hand to answer all my queries and they have worked with me on every detail of my little boy's day to day care, taking the time to understand his routine. This has made the transition of going back to work and starting nursery so easy for both of us. It is a lovely setting, with lots of varied activities for his development and a very high standard of meals. Communication is excellent both through the website learning journal and from staff on a day to day basis. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Natural Choice Nursery Ltd.

My daughter has been going to Natural Choice Nursery in Alveston for over a year now since she turned one. The staff are amazing. The relationships they have with the children are great, my daughter is always happy and loves all of the staff. She's allowed time outside to play when she wants to, and the garden area is great. They also do a lot of other activities and crafts which she wouldn't do at home. I occasionally email in for updates and get a fast response with real-time photos which is such a nice touch. They use an online learning journal, so we can see what she's been up to easily from home and are able to share things from home with the nursery as well. The food is varied and must be good as usually we're told she's had seconds! It's so nice to have no worries or concerns about the people and the company looking after my child. They have rigorous collection and child protection procedures in place for peace of mind.

My son thoroughly enjoys his time at Natural Choice Nurseries and has built good relationships with his key workers. He's always busy and the staff do an excellent job of giving him a wide variety of activities and opportunities to play and learn. The staff are warm and friendly and really know the children they work with and are very understanding of fussy parents too! I know that when I leave my son at nursery he will have outstanding care and a lot of fun!

My daughter is about to turn 3. She has been attending this nursery since she was 6m old.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough, such amazing people! I have watched my daughter developing, knowing that a large portion of this is down to the care and attention at nursery.
As a first time mum, I was so worried about leaving her with someone else. This was the only nursery I found (I looked at many!) where I felt complete trust in the staff. I have absolutely 100% confidence that they look after my daughter professionally, appropriately and with so much care and attention.
A huge thing for me is that all staff are trained in baby/child first aid and resuscitation. Obviously, no one ever wants to use these skills, but if it was required, you would want a trained person in the same room as your child. Other nurseries only have 1 trained member on site, that could mean on break/different room.
I wouldn't want her going anywhere else!

Our son started at Natural Choice Nursery in Feb 2014 when he was 7 months old. He is now 3 1/2 years old and in the pre-school room. From the very beginning, we have been extremely pleased with the care our son receives. We have watched him learn so much as he progressed to the toddler room, to the 2-3's room and now as a pre-schooler. The carers are all amazing, incredibly caring and patient with the children. They do a wide range of activities each day and our son has a great time learning with his friends. The children are encouraged to do things for themselves, to help each other and have good manners. Our son has developed good relationships with all the carers and has made lots of little friends which we hope he will keep when he starts infant school next year.

Would recommend this nursery to anyone. Staff are very caring and kind, they have a great sense of humour and encourage children of all ages. The food looks and smells fabulous and is very varied. They helped with potty training in a very professional manner. My daughter loves her days at nursery and is always happy and smiling when she comes home. Activities are varied with personal attention (birthday cards made for siblings etc) and plenty of outside play is encouraged. Many thanks to them for helping her settle in and supporting a worried/guilty parent! Don't feel guilty anymore only slightly jealous as she has so much fun!
