Reviews

9.5 Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.547)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd 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 76 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 32 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 4.848 for Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (778 Excellents x 5) + (118 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 906 Ratings = 4.848

  • 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 4.699 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd is based on 32 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 45.8 positive Reviews (229 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 45.8 Target = 0.699

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Both my children have or are attending Cuddles. the staff are friendly and attentive and always exceed expectations. The outside facilities are outstanding and the extra activities like gym and woodland walks add to the fun. I am so glad that I chose Cuddles. I can leave my little girl knowing she is in great hands and will have a lovely day.

Cuddles is a lovely nursery and every child I've seen go in seems to be very happy to be there. My little one loves it and has been going since he was nine months old a few days a week.
I trust the staff completely and they give me honest feedback everyday about how my child has been which is great. My son has a jammed packed day full of lots of activities and he gets to play with lots of friends so I think going has been great for his confidence and learning. I am very happy with this nursery.

Having only had my daughter at the nursery for one month so far I’m increasingly impressed and pleased with the passing days and weeks.
I had some early reservations as her room is ‘large’ with up to 24 children, I was worried my child (or indeed any other) would just be seen as one of many and her individual needs and personality would just get lost in the crowd.
However, each day we are greeted by a member of staff who asks with genuine interest how we are doing. Messages such as changes to nap times, or particular requests at meals etc all get communicated on.
The comments I hear at the end of the day are accurate, such as her habits, dislikes and how she’s behaved or things she’s learned in the day that I’ve noticed too. I feel she is noticed, cared for on an individual basis and I can’t ask much more than that.

As it says on the tin, 'an absolutely outstanding nursery'.

I have been using Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd for 6 years and only have praise for the commitment dedication and enthusiasm of all staff who work there.

An amazing setting with such varied play from going to the woods to heading out to the gym.

Always a friendly face saying good morning have a good day or good night.

Never a problem when something arises and cater for every child’s needs without hesitation.

I have every confidence in sending my children to cuddles and this has reflected in their happiness.

When I sent my eldest to school, they commented on how ready he was and I would say this is partly down to the hard work at Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd to ensure all children are ready to move into the big wide world of school.

Keep up the good work cuddles you deserve the outstanding review!

My 21-month-old Son has been at Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd for a few months now and he absolutely LOVES IT!! Both the room and admin teams are amazing and the facilities are excellent.

It is an efficiently run nursery where my son is stimulated all day. He is very well taken care of and I have no concerns over his safety, with a good entry system in place and lots of staff on hand. As parents, we are regularly updated on his progress and we have seen him thrive in recent months.

He adores the team who care for him and I would not hesitate in recommending Cuddles Day Nursery, Canford Heath to anyone looking for a fun, educational and safe environment for their child(ren).

My daughter has been attending Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd since September. Her confidence has grown and her desire to want to join in and make new friends has increased. The staff are professional, kind, informative and have empathy.

Every day, right from the first few weeks of tears and clinginess; to today-full of smiles and excitement, the class staff have been supportive of my daughter and also me, as a teary mum!!

I was really surprised at the level of care that each child receives. The food is healthy and nutritious and encourages children to try new things.
The play spaces are amazing and they rotate around the playgrounds so the children see different toys and activities. No such thing as boring here!!

Thank you to the whole team for being absolutely fabulous x

My 1-year-old daughter attends Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd 1 day per week. She enjoys going to nursery and does lots of fun activities whilst there. Information given is in written format each day which I like, although sometimes I find staff can be a little distracted/formal/non-communicative on drop offs and pick ups.

Great nursery. New room extension for 15 and 30-hour funding. Excellent outside space - children play in the different garden area each day. Wide selection of stimulating and educational toys - role play, construction and craft. Staff are fantastic and really go that extra mile for each child. The children are happy and loved.

I LOVE that the staff frequently cuddle my little one, especially as she comes in daily and is always slightly overwhelmed at first, a cuddle always helps to settle her. I am reassured that when my little one finds it too much, staff will sit with her, cuddle her and support her.
Staff are great a balance of younger, older, more and less experienced, male and female, quieter and more outgoing which is vital in each room.
It does seem we have to pay a premium for the nursery, however, I think the service offered is high standard
I did have to put one complaint in and I was pleased how well it was considered and acted upon, reassuring me that we are listened to.
I would like to hear a bit more about what they do at nursery, Sometimes it is a while before photos and comments appear in the learning journal. It would be good to hear if there are things that are being generally covered so we could support learning at home.

It's always a concerning time when you leave your little one for the first time. Cuddles helped that transition with their patience, kindness and most of all experience.

They keep you up to date on your child's progress and always seem genuine in their approach to childcare.

From my son's point of view, he loves his time at nursery and finds all of his teachers fun. He's learning loads and socialising well.

Well done Cuddles :-)

Cuddles gave my son the very best start in life. He attended from the age of six months and has made lifelong friends during his time there. He is nearly ten years old now. Cuddles have given him confidence, education and love. Couldn’t have survived without them.

I have used cuddles for the last 4 years for both of my daughter's and cannot praise them enough. Every staff member I have encountered (which is many) have been so lovely, and the children adore them. I cannot imagine a safer and happier environment to have my girls in. They make learning so fun and each has a personal relationship with the staff members. They are all so friendly and I will frequently stop for a chat as I no so many of the staff there. I will continue to use them for breakfast and after-school clubs into the future.

Cuddles is a fantastic nursery. I have already recommended the nursery to friends already. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and easy to talk too. My daughter has settled in so well. On her very first settling in session, she said she didn't want to go back to her old preschool and that she loved Cuddles. She comes out exceptionally happy every day. I can not fault this nursery.

Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd is a great nursery. They were amazing with my son who was very shy and helped him become a more confident person who now comes into nursery smiling and being able to have the confidence to go off and play with other children. I cannot fault them at all, all the staff do a fab job!

Linda Duly, Director at Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd responded to this review on 16 Mar 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, your kind comments will be shared with the team.

All 3 of my grandsons have attended Cuddles on Canford Heath over the past 6 years.
The standard of care for the children is excellent whether in the nursery or the play school part of the building.
The environment is fun, interesting and safe.
The children are treated with respect, taught manners and to care about others. Also to maintain good hygiene. The learning aspect is brilliant, encouraging and supportive. The children are well prepared for early years at school.
Highly recommend and have actually recommended this branch to a young work colleague.
Keep up the good work.

Fantastic setting. All rooms especially Conchita's room (which my Son is in) are so beautifully kept.. colourful and bright with lots of different topics and activities on the walls.
The outside areas are amazing.
The general feel to the nursery as a whole is warm and inviting and you really feel a sense of pride from the staff who work there.
My Son thoroughly enjoys each session with the Conchita's and comes away each day full of things to tell me.
Extremely supportive and approachable staff... all of who my Son enjoys spending his time with. Looking forward to sending my daughter there when she turns 3.

I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful, friendly staff at Cuddles.
They have all individually encouraged my son to grow in confidence. Everyone shows a real interest in each individual child and they genuinely care for all the children.
Cuddles has a structured approach to learning but still with lots of time for the children to explore play. They have helped develop my son's imagination by being involved in activities and out door play.

Staff are amazing and go above and beyond their duty. All the playgrounds are well maintained and any concerns are addressed straight away.
The extra trips are great and so is food.
Would be great if you opened from 7am though.

A great nursery, both my children have attended. All staff, from management, office and care givers always friendly and on hand to reassure and answer queries. Very honest and positive with feedback given about my childrens progress. Plenty of varied activities on the go. I struggle to get my children to leave at the end of their sessions. Would highly recommend.

Excellent school. Staff are amazing. When my little girl first started at Cuddles Day Nursery, she was very shy and had no confidence but since then she has come out her shell. She has made friends and has a lot more confidence, she is learning well and every day she comes out she tells me something new they have done in playschool. The snacks are always very healthy and most of the time its things that she won't try at home. They have plenty of toys inside, some are a bit old but the children still love them. Outdoor facilities are amazing.

My son went to Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd for a year and absolutely loved it. The staff are amazing and so good with the children, he always looked forward to going. Also, my son is an August baby and I did worry if he would be ready for school but they all worked with him to help prepare him and his transition has been fine, although he still misses all the staff at the pre school, they have helped him so much.
Absolutely amazing and all the staff are so friendly and welcoming. I really can not recommend them highly enough.

Great nursery. My boys love spending 2 days here a week. Staff and manager are all very friendly and helpful and always say hello and all remember my boy's names. The organisation is great and always doing different activities. I do have a little issue with hygiene and feel the nursery could be cleaner in the toilet areas. Other than that the nursery is amazing all round.

Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd is an outstanding nursery. My daughter has attended for the past 18 months and always comes home full of exciting stories about her day. Everyone that we have had contact with has been highly professional, alongside caring and kind. They always have a large selection of activities available and spend lots of time outside in the fabulous gardens, exploring and developing many skills. We still have another two years at nursery before school begins and we can't wait for the on going adventures! I would have no problems with highly recommending Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd.

We have been using Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd for over 3 years now. My youngest has been there since she was 9months old. She has developed into a happy and confident little girl who will be well prepared for school life next year. All the staff are approachable and accommodating, they ensure the after school club children get to go to the disco at the school across the road by changing them into the party clothes and taking them back to the school.... It's the little things yes, but it's a big thing when you're a working parent to make sure your child doesn't miss out!

Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd had all three of my children. One from a baby and the other two from toddlers as I was lucky enough not to go part time with the younger two.
With all of my children, they not only brought their confidence up but gave them a fun, learning environment where they made really good friends and became confident, young people.
They all loved attending and got to know their key workers very well and they became a big part of their life.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery throughout all ages. They did trips, parties, special celebrations and a leavers prom to make the process from nursery to school a memorable one.

When dropping off to start with I felt a bit awkward as we were new and most people knew each other. The staff seemed a bit slow to start to greet. Unfortunately, I don't always see my key worker (who is fabulous). However, after a few weeks, the younger staff smile and greet and I feel very comfortable leaving my child. I am also encouraged to call if any doubts or to check up on my Daughter.

Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd is an excellent nursery and the staff care very well for my daughter. The facilities are fantastic and the best aspect of the nursery is the variety of gardens and the quality of the outdoor play spaces. The days are well structured and the focus is on learning through play, which is as it should be for young children.

My child had a wonderful time at Cuddles Day Nursery and learnt a lot. He took a long time to settle when he first started and staff went out of their way over and above to help him settle,feel comfortable, and confident. Their attention to detail in terms of his learning was great. Would thoroughly recommend. He particularly loved the outside spaces.

More often than not the children are outside. Cuddles Day Nursery Ltd has supported the growth and development of my son and I'm sure this will set him up for when he goes off to school.

The quality of care my son receives from what I can tell is extremely good. Developmentally he's growing so much, socially every day brings something new. Mixing with a variety of children is helping him build interpersonal skills & a confidence I don't think I had at that age.

A pleasure to see.

My Daughter loves going to Cuddles each week. She has a great bond with the key workers in her room, she never had any problems with settling in. The staff provide a wonderful range of different activities for her to explore including trips to the woods each week, which my daughter loves! They spend lots of time outside in their amazing outdoor areas.
The management team are always welcoming when entering the building in the morning which is lovely.

Hi I would just like to say that cuddles staff have been brilliant especially my sons key worker, my son has had trouble getting used to going to Cuddles and got very upset every time but with them working with me and him he now goes and we only get a few tears every now and then his key worker ensured he was cuddled and happy and I was able to ring as much as I liked to check on him I can honestly say I would have taken him out and kept him at home if they had not been so patient with me just as much as him so thank you for a great job done.

I have sent both of my children to Cuddles and will be sending my youngest soon, they are by far the best nursery in Poole and I know of parents who drive from Bournemouth to send their children there! The staff are fantastic, they are warm and friendly and funny, the facilities are incredible and my children have progressed so much since attending! I feel it is a wonderful, fun and safe environment to send children and have nothing but love for the place!

My daughter attended Cuddles from when she was 14 months old to when she started school and I have continued to use Cuddles holiday club facilities. They have been absolutely fantastic with my daughter and she loves going back to Cuddles especially seeing the staff that used to look after her when she was little. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cuddles, for my daughter it was like a second home. The staff and management are always helpful, the facilities are fantastic, and they always put on excellent activities for the children especially in the holiday club. I can't thank Cuddles enough for the support they gave to me and for the wonderful job they did of looking after my daughter.

He has attended the nursery for over a year now and all his needs are always accommodated. The staff are very helpful and supportive and I will be sad when he leaves the nursery to start school next year.

Enrolling your child into nursery for the first time is a very nerve racking and emotional time for both the child and the parents. I felt that Cuddle's made this time a lot easier by always being friendly and ensuring me that my daughter is getting the best care. I looked at a few nurseries in the area and as soon as I saw Cuddles, I realised that this was the nursery I wanted my daughter to attend.
The nursery has amazing facilities, play areas and the staff are always friendly, telling me about my daughters day and the little things like funny comments she makes. My daughter thoroughly enjoys it at Cuddles and this gives me peace of mind when I leave her there, definitely a great nursery!

Sophia joined Cuddles in April 2014. Sophia is and always has been a confident child, however, was not used to being without me and therefore struggled with being left. The staff were incredible at dealing with her when she got upset and always managed to calm her down. I honestly do not have a negative comment to make about Cuddles. The staff are amazing both in class and in the office. The facilities, activities, cleanliness are excellent. I have, and will continue to, recommend it as a nursery, and will be sending my youngest there. Sophia is so sad to leave and will miss the staff very much.

Every time I pick my oldest up he says he has had such a good day and doesn't want to leave. On the days he doesn't have nursery he complains and asks if he can go any way. My youngest doesn't start till September and he always cries when we leave and says please stay as he wants to stay and play at Cuddles. Both my children love Cuddles and all the staff, what more could I ask for.

My daughter has come on really well since being at pre-school, she loves going in and everybody always talks about the practitioners in her room. I honestly can't fault Cuddles Canford Heath. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
