Reviews

9.8 Happy Days Nursery - St Minver has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.849)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Happy Days Nursery - St Minver 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happy Days Nursery - St Minver in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.849 for Happy Days Nursery - St Minver is calculated as follows: ( (245 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 284 Ratings = 4.849

  • 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 Happy Days Nursery - St Minver is based on 20 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 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 5.6 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.

There is always a warm welcome at St Minver Happy days and care and attention paid to him on arrival which means I go to work knowing that he is happy to stay and when I pick him up at the end of the day, I know he has had a day filled with fun and has been looked after in every sense, from nutritional meals and meds to age-appropriate learning and lots of cuddles and reassurance if needed. The staff have great ideas for activities and always mix it up so the children are stimulated and challenged while playing. My son has been so happy at St Minver Happy Days and in another setting, with different staff I am sure he wouldn't have been as confident as he is now. Thank you to everyone!

Since our first enquiry, we have found the staff to be welcoming, helpful and efficient. The daily feedback we receive on our son's day added to the level of concern and care for our son is so great to see - he just loves going there! We regularly get photos of what he's been up to which is such a nice touch, especially when it's not easy to leave him whilst at work. I highly recommend and am so grateful to the team.

Many thanks to all the staff, especially the manager and a few particular ladies.

My grandson had attended this nursery from the age of 2 starting in the Explorers room and moving through to the Adventures room, each room meeting his individual needs. He has absolutely loved it, thriving in a lovely enriched environment, with wonderful staff that are very welcoming and supportive.

The staff at Happy Days are warm, caring, lovely and always try to accommodate the children's needs. The children have lots of outside play time and lots of creative activities. My children have always been very happy, made lots of friends and are clearly very fond of the staff. It's very hard to leave your young children with other people, but happy days have made this much easier by making me confident they are well cared for.

My third child is currently attending Happy Days and as with my previous two, she is thriving. The staff are always very informative with regards to my child's daily activities, sleep, development etc. They always ask what she has been up to outside of nursery, her health and new words and experience she has had. They help me, as a parent, to aid her development, to let go a little and let her explore more freely. I am very happy with Happy Days, as they are really friendly, encouraging and driven in their goals to make the children feel happy and safe in their presence.

My son started Nursery in November and all the staff have ensured a smooth and stress-free transition for him. He is always happy and enjoys going. He has made some lovely little friends. He regularly talks about what he has done and who he has played with.

I put my son into this nursery as my husband became ill. Four years later, it was the best thing I did. My son is so happy and loves going. There are loads of activities and has learnt so much, made new friends, eats well and thanks to the nursery teaching them to be polite and help parents with potty training and talking as my son was late in both. All staff are amazing and friendly. Recommend them 100%

I have 2 children that attend the nursery and I cannot praise them enough. They have supported the eldest through room transition, potty training and the arrival of her baby sibling and so much more! The youngest is making the most of the explorer's room and is very happy.
I have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and I will be very sad when eventually they both move on to school.

St Minver is a fantastic setting. All the staff are so kind, funny and happy. My daughter loves it there and I feel happy and confident dropping her off knowing she will be well cared for. I cannot recommend the nursery enough. Pick up and drop off is lovely for me and my child. They are so attentive and informative.

Any questions I had were answered. My child loves coming to nursery and all the staff at St Minver Happy Days are amazing. They are kind and caring and so great with the children. Thank you for all your hard work!

I have used this nursery for the past 4 years for both of my daughters. It provided a safe and happy place for my eldest who is now at school and I am certain it provided her with a brilliant foundation for this. My youngest is still at nursery and loves her time there. She gets so much out of her sessions and I have never once worried about her there which, for me, is quite amazing. The staff can't do enough to ensure that her needs are met (and mine) and for that, I will always be hugely grateful. I feel very lucky to have this nursery on my doorstep and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone considering it.

I was recommended this Nursery by a friend 7 years ago. My first daughter started there when she was 18months, she absolutely loved it from the beginning. The staff then were amazing, very kind, helpful and understanding. And always gave great feedback. My daughter stayed there until she went to the primary school on the same grounds. I feel that her going to this nursery played a massive part in her confidence and ability to learn things quickly and easily.
I was so happy when I got my second daughter into this nursery. Some of the same staff were still there, which to me was encouraging. My daughter didn't have any confidence with new people at first and didn't want to be left at all. However, she's been there for 7 months now and absolutely loves it.
The staff are incredible, they work really hard, are always happy and jolly, kind, helpful and always so pleased to see the children. I couldn't recommend this nursery more!!!! Its outstanding!!

I have 2 children who attend, a 17 month old boy and a 3 year old girl. Both love going to the nursery. My little girl often tells me of the goings on at the nursery and never says anything that she is unhappy about. My boy cannot tell me but he seems happy and well cared for. He sleeps for about 2 hours in the afternoon, which I'm sure if he wasn't settled he wouldn't be able to do. Having been initially worried about leaving them after maternity leave, they both settled so well, I couldn't be happier with the nursery.

Have been using this nursery now for 4 years with my oldest and now my youngest has just started. Only thing I find after using another nursery alongside this one was the fees are the same across the board but was better when they reduce cost on age as working parents full time is such a huge cost. Have always been extremely happy with the staff. They all do an amazing job with my children.
