  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 40 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 4.911 for Naturally Learning Truro is calculated as follows: ( (502 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 550 Ratings = 4.911

  • 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 Naturally Learning Truro is based on 40 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 40 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

They are amazing at this nursery, our toddler loves the wide range of activities they plan along with the ethos of getting children outside and playing in nature. The carers are brilliant and with key workers being assigned to your child it’s good to hear updates on their learning and progress. The food provided is to a high standard and with use of the Famly app we can see how much they have eaten throughout the day. Their use of family is very good and provides constant updates on day to day events as well as keeping all the child’s information in one area.

I was overwhelmed by the fantastic welcoming environment when I dropped my nephew to preschool. The staff were genuinely pleased to see him and he ran in laughing and smiling.
He was excited to go to the nursery and was telling me all about his day when I picked him up.

My nephew attends this nursery and I have had the pleasure of collecting and seeing him, having fun, learning and exploring within this fab preschool environment. He especially enjoys the outdoor area and talks excitable about his days at preschool. I think it’s fantastic the way the preschool approaches learning with experience and the natural environment.
The staff are always friendly and welcoming and show a genuine interest in my nephews learning experience and interests.
I look forward each week to finding out what he has been up to and would recommend to anyone.

Myself and my wife are very pleased with Naturally Learning. This is our 2nd child we have watched flourished going through each milestone there. They are very considerate to how hard my wife finds leaving our son especially now this is the last baby going through the nursery. We are so pleased with the family app they have, it's literally everything we need to know about our sons day when it happens. He has settled so well and the staff there are amazing. They're all so friendly and happy, you can tell they're all part of a team. Some may say a family. Thank you for looking after my children cause family is everything.

This nursery has had so much to offer my little granddaughter. I could not believe the time and effort that goes into the planning. I particularly enjoy that even the babies get to explore things we wouldn’t necessarily think of in our own homes. The smiles, the smells, the setups when I pick up are so lovely too see. I enjoy seeing all ages playing together outside and it’s so nice that all members of staff know my granddaughter's name. They always seem to be so enthusiastic and eager to help in any way. The food looks amazing.

Naturally Learning has been fantastic with our daughter, lots of time spent on initially settling her in. Now she is settled she is gaining new skills every day and we’re kept really well informed about how she is during the day. Our daughter has fantastic care and attention, I would highly recommend Naturally Learning to friends and family.

My daughter really enjoys her time at the nursery, especially the outdoors-side as well as the teachers being very enthusiastic regarding the teaching of the children and activities they do. Everything is very well planned and there is a lot of outdoor play and forest school.
However, they are quite inflexible on changing days or booking pattern which can be difficult in a modern day working which does require flexibility, especially in the gig economy.

Overall very well led by some key and consistent staff. All that matters to me is that my own child is happy while at nursery and I know for sure that is the case.

His feedback is the most important to me.

Naturally Learning Truro has been incredibly beneficial to my little boy who is currently in toddlers. I wanted a more outdoors environment for him that offered structure and goals but also gave him the opportunity to be himself. He is not an indoors child and he can be very emotional at times. The team have been brilliant with him and his speech and understanding of the world has come on in leaps and bounds. He has thrived in the environment and talks about the nursery and his friends all the time at home. I'm especially impressed with his sign language skills, he has been teaching me! Thank you to all the team there for all of their hard work and effort with my son. He is turning into a fantastic, caring, intelligent little person and you are a massive part of that journey.

My grandson has been going here since he was 2 years old and as a grandparent, I have been so impressed with the nursery. They are so warm when welcoming me in to pick him up. They give in-depth feedback about his day and make sure all his belongings are ready for me. The outside space is great as it’s so big and gives him opportunities to run around and be free. I like hearing about the forest school sessions he has with using real tools and sits around an open fire. He even tells me how to make a fire and to be fire safe. If you are looking for a nursery which gives a personal experience and is only interested in letting a child be individual then naturally learning is the place. Thank you for all the hard work you do for my grandson and I will miss you all when he goes to school.

I love collecting my niece from nursery and hearing all about her day. She always has a piece of artwork she’s created and stories to tell of her wonderful day. The outdoor space is lovely. The Famly app is a great way of keeping in touch and gives my sister a real peace of mind that her daughter is settled.

My sister came to me with concerns because of my niece having severe allergies, as a paramedic, I offered to look around the nursery and see what they had in place as a safety precaution. After leaving, my sister felt very assured with all the information given by the management team, I thought they were very professional and took all concerns seriously. My niece has been there for two and a half years and I enjoy getting to pick her up and seeing her so happy and content. The outdoor area is a fantastic space which suits her perfectly. Would highly recommend.

My daughter started here when she was 1, she struggled leaving me to begin with but the support, reassurance and care she received was fantastic to make both her and I at ease. So we now have great memories of the baby lodge. She loves her nursery and the effort and imagination the staff put in to make it a wonderful setting with great activities, is amazing.

I have been a happy customer of Naturally Learning Truro since it opened in 2014. My three children have attended there. I am really impressed by the professionalism of the staff and how well they know my children. I am particularly happy with how Naturally Learning really practices what it preaches in that all the activities are very much focused on outdoor learning and awareness of nature. My children always come home a bit muddy which I believe is very important for a young child to play outdoors as much as possible. Staff are always very flexible with bookings even if I need a last minute change. My children are always happy there and my young baby who is 16 months, has been there since she was 6 months old. She has cried at drop off maybe once or twice in that whole time, she loves it there and I can go to work feeling really assured that she is having a lovely time. Thanks to all at Naturally Learning!

My daughter has attended the nursery for nearly two years and I have nothing but thanks and appreciation for the amazing care and nurturing she has received there. All of the staff are lovely and she always comes away happy, filthy and exhausted so I know that she’s had an action-packed, fun-filled day. I love that the children spend lots of time outside and that all the ages are able to mix. I will truly be sad when she has to leave to go to school.

My little girl has been at Naturally Learning for a year now. Initially, she didn’t settle very well but with the support and care of some of the excellent members of staff, I am pleased to say she is now very happy and has formed close bonds. I chose the nursery over many others based on their ethos of learning through the natural environment. The children spend a lot of time playing and learning outside - rain or shine - and are encouraged to be active and adventurous. There is always a selection of sensory-based activities set up and the structure of the day seems to really suit my little girl.
The nursery also provides freshly prepared meals. This means my daughter is trying new foods all of the time, in addition to those at home, which is really beneficial to a slightly fussy toddler. She often talks about having lunch with her friends, she obviously enjoys eating in the very social setting.
Overall an excellent nursery!

Since my niece started Naturally Learning she has amazed me with her knowledge, life skills and confidence. Watching her grow she was a shy, unconfident and quiet little girl. Since being at Naturally Learning we have been blessed with seeing her character form. I have been taught how to make shelters, how to make dens, fires, how a forest school works and what I should look out for when visiting the beach. All things that when I spend time with her she speaks about passionately. I just had to visit the nursery and see the practitioners in action myself, they were so friendly and welcoming. I could not believe the attention to detail that goes into their planning and the activities set up. I will now be sending my daughter to the nearest Naturally Learning.

My daughter started at this nursery over two years ago, each day she has grown in confidence. The staff have been outstanding with her and the quality of care cannot be faulted. My daughter would jump out of our arms in the morning and was excited to tell us about her day in the afternoon. Before she attended Naturally Learning I was naive to how much work, commitment and effort goes into the planning for their enjoyment, the training and how they always enable the personal touch to each thing they do. It has definitely been an eye-opener for me, my little princess will jump in her prettiest dress in the deepest of their mud pits with nothing but a smile on.

My Grandson has been going to the nursery for two years and I can’t recommend it highly enough. He is so happy and loves all the amazing staff.

Naturally Learning is such a great nursery, they educate your children to be independent and to follow their own direction. They give them the tools they need to succeed.

My son has not always been the easiest child but at Naturally Learning, he has made great progress. The staff are so friendly and welcoming when I collect him. The feedback I received about his day is great from his key person and the meals he has smell great.

The outdoors is fantastic and provides so many opportunities to them. I love hearing and seeing all the different activities and learning he does outside.

I am really liking the family system they use which is so user-friendly and easy to understand. Everyone is so friendly and helpful which makes pick up and drop off great.

If you are looking for a nursery which is chilled, has great outdoor learning and uses natural resources. This is the place to go!!

My grandson attends this excellent nursery and he is making outstanding progress.

I love the interaction between extended members of the family like myself who are regularly informed on all outdoor learning and all other fun activities.

The staff work really hard and when I drop my grandson off at the nursery there is always a happy welcome at the reception. They quickly get my grandson into an activity and he is always very happy to see his key person. The manager is also extremely welcoming and ensures the smooth transition from welcome to activity.

Both my daughter and son started at Naturally Learning Truro at the same time and I could not have asked for more. The settling in process was great and both children made amazing bonds with the practitioners. Both my children ask when are they going to nursery and get excited to attend and then get upset if we are not going! The outside environment is a great learning space and I love the fact that they are allowed to get muddy and explore. What is so important to me is that they are child led. They let the children make decisions and lead the learning around their interests and development. I have noticed a change in both my children when it comes to exploring, they want to be outside and teach me about the outdoor environment and this is down to Naturally Learning Truro. Everyone is so friendly and they all know who you are even if your child is not in their room. I can not fault the care and love my children receive which puts me at ease when I am not with them. Thank you Naturally Learning Truro.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 5 months old. Nursery is more than just his favourite place to go, it has become a home away from home for him. I've visited lots of different nurseries around the country and in Iceland too but Naturally Learning Truro is really something special. He loves going and checking on the chickens, exploring the huge gardens that are full of some great resources, digging away for hours in the sand pits, diving straight into whatever sensory activity is set up for the day and learning new stories and songs. He has formed special friendships with both the other children and the extremely friendly staff, regularly coming home with great tales to tell of his adventures. From the 'Forest School' sessions they run on site with open fires and real tools to the weekly swimming and ballet lessons, he is learning and growing in every way possible and I cannot show enough thanks to the manager and the team for their hard work.

I have always found when using Naturally Learning nothing but professionalism. I was an apprehensive parent putting my daughter into childcare, however, she is now equipped with many life skills thanks to the opportunities given to her at Naturally Learning. I have always been quite cautious as a parent and very quickly to deter from anything that maybe considered as a "risk". Naturally Learning taught me so many different ideas and showed me ways of teaching my child and allowing her to make those choices herself. They have always been respectful of views. I feel as though they keep you up to date with development and whats happening within the rooms, I will be sending our third child there whom we are currently expecting. I have often told others of Naturally Learning and will encourage parents to go and have a look around of the premises.

As a mother of four, you would think I would find it easy sending my children to nursery.. but I find it hard. Anxiety kicks in I'm thinking what is he doing? Will he be happy without me? What can I do to keep myself busy? Well, I'm so lucky to have found an outstanding nursery. They not only put my child needs first, but they are always considerate of my feelings too.

I love the family app, it's a way for me to communicate with the staff. I can see what my child has been doing, how well he has settled, seeing what he's eaten (snacks/lunch), nappy changes and nap time. I also like it when they post pictures of him interacting with the other children and seeing him happy, it puts my mind at ease.

I'm so happy to be part of the Naturally Learning Nursery and I'm looking forward to seeing my son go through his milestones with his friends and the staff. Thank you all for welcoming myself and my family. Here's to 2018.

My son was a little nervous at first, however, he was supported very well and both staff and management had a clear idea of how to settle him in.

Staff have always been welcoming and the location within the wider Truro High School is superb.

Would highly recommend a visit.

The staff are lovely, and the set up is perfect, we love wooden toys, and open-ended play, and encouraging independence at home and I could see that this nursery would continue to provide these things for my daughter. I was very nervous about leaving her for the first time but they made the transition much easier and have been so supportive. There is a gorgeous feel to the nursery and I feel 100% relaxed about leaving my daughter there, made even easier with the super app that lets me see what she is eating or whether she has slept, etc...
Thank you all, you're wonderful!!

My son loves going to ‘school’. I feel so lucky that we found somewhere where he can run and play without too much structure. He enjoys having marshmallows or popcorn on the fire and generally getting muddy!

The staff are welcoming and always have time to give a handover of what they’ve been doing and eating!

Now he’s with the preschool group he’s getting prepared for school and it’s very led by him.

My son has always been very happy here. The staff are excellent and know the children very well. The activities are varied and they spend a great deal of time outdoors.
It is a fun and active place to learn!

My 2-year old daughter has been attending Naturally Learning for 7 months and really loves it. The children spend a lot of time outside, making the most of the natural environment and using that as the basis for their learning. The focus is very much on the development of the individual child, and the staff take the lead for their lesson planning from the interests of the children. The atmosphere is both relaxed and friendly; the staff are very approachable and there is a good line of communication between the nursery and parents. The staff also take the time to get to know all of the children in the nursery, not just those that they are directly responsible for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Naturally Learning to other parents.

We are so happy with the nursery and our baby is thriving there. We love the outdoor focus and the chance for independent play without having to use mainstream toys. A really lovely environment where the children are encouraged to learn at their own pace. A fantastic alternative to the 'normal' nursery options.

The school holidays can't come quick enough!! Both my sons love the forestry club at Naturally Learning's holiday club. The staff are wonderful and my sons have made new friends with the children that attend the holiday club. In my opinion, Naturally Learning is the best holiday club in Truro! (My sons are 5 yrs and 7yrs old). My eldest son loves the fresh home made food cooked daily. Which I'm also delighted with...(No packed lunch making for me!).

Naturally Learning is an excellent nursery. My child continues to thrive whilst in their care and they do all they can to ensure that the time she spends there is full of fun and learning. I cannot fault the nursery staff with their care of the children and this really is the best nursery that I could have picked. I would highly recommend this nursery to anybody seeking childcare.

I have done and will continue to recommend the nursery, we are extremely very happy with setting and highly rate it. My child was difficult to settle but now gets excited when she is visiting. The only downfall I would give is the staff turn over, but this may be the nature of the business.

Mandy Richardson, Director at Naturally Learning Truro responded to this review on 01 Jul 2016:

Sadly we have had a couple of staff move on to new roles but have been so pleased to find amazing replacements.

I am absolutely delighted with our choice of nursery for our two boys. My eldest son has an amazing time as a "Little Explorer" and my younger son absolutely loves his time in the Baby Room. All the staff are incredibly caring and lovely. I would recommend (and have) to all my friends!

My children have attended Naturally Learning, Truro for the last year. They are happy to go each day, have developed great relationships with all staff and made lots of friends. They have made lots of progress in their learning, despite telling me every day that they have "just played". The outside space is fantastic and they go outside everyday, often coming home muddy but always happy! I would recommend the nursery fully, they know my children so well and learning is personalised to them, their interests and needs. The food is varied and satisfies even my hungry boys. When asked what they like about nursery my boys said " I like playing" and "Playing outside".
