Reviews

9.8 The Nest Nursery Wood End has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.825)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Nest Nursery Wood End 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 35 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Nest Nursery Wood End in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 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 4.825 for The Nest Nursery Wood End is calculated as follows: ( (357 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 417 Ratings = 4.825

  • 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 The Nest Nursery Wood End is based on 27 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 13 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.

The staff are very friendly. The outside facilities are fantastic and my son and daughter really enjoy going to the nursery. I really like the updates on Tapestry to see your child's progress during the month to month basis. I like that there is a wide range of learning activities such as baby yoga, signing and forest school.

What to say about this amazing nursery? Where do I begin? My daughter started there is December 2013 aged 8 months old and they have helped mould and grow an enthusiastic and polite young girl. The care and experiences she gets there are second to none. It is like a small home from home where she feels comfortable to play, learn and be herself. The fantastic staff are always keen, eager and approachable if you have any questions. The setting is fab with the most beautiful garden full of equipment and learning opportunities for any young child. The mud kitchen is a huge hit as is the secret forest school garden. As my daughter leaves for school now, I'm immensely grateful for the best job they've done educating my child.

The Nest Nursery is a very welcoming and homely feel nursery. Lovely environment using natural resources. One of the best features The Nest Nursery has is its beautiful large garden with different provocation for children to explore. Staff are always changing areas with new fantastic ideas that all the children love. My son loves coming to nursery. All staff make a fuss and staff within the nursery make it their job to know all the children. Staff are friendly and willing to help and their interaction with the children is lovely. Always lovely activities when I collect my son. I leave my son at the nursery knowing he safe and happy and having a lovely day learning so much through his own choice.

My little girl attended here and she absolutely adored the outdoors area. The staff were really engaging and supportive of her love for the outdoors and encouraged her independence. The nursery is so calming the way it is set up it's like a home away from home. She also enjoyed all the messy activities available because she loves getting messy and the play dough station was one of her favourite areas as well.

Both of my children have attended this nursery. The staff are very helpful and are always very caring towards them. The environment is very homely and very inviting and the resource they use are very natural which make their learning opportunity endless. The boys really enjoy the garden and the free flow, they are allowed to play indoors or outdoors, this means they can do as they please. It's also lovely how the children are all together as well as the boys can have their own friends but also have each other too. I couldn't wish for a better nursery for my children to go to. Thank you to all the amazing staff.

My second child now attends The Nest Nursery Wood End following my first child. I can honestly say with the team leading the nursery and the exceptional caring and nurturing staff, I would not consider sending my child anywhere else. The environment gives my child excellent opportunity to learn and develop. The Nest Nursery Wood End provides activities put on by staff and the agencies such as the music man/woman and learn and sign all. I don't believe you would find many nurseries with an outside space that The Nest Nursery Wood End has with its garden. This huge outdoor environment gives my child the opportunity to explore new things and I am fortunate my child can attend a nursery with such a space. The Nest Nursery has brilliant top class facilities but it is the staff that leave me feeling at ease knowing that my child is being left in the best possible care.

The Nest nursery is a fantastic place to be, my daughter loved it here the staff are always friendly and helpful like one big happy family. My daughter is the kind of child who likes to get down and dirty and this was the place she could do it, mud and sand, paint, water, spaghetti you name it she was there, and if your child likes something, in particular, they will do their best to see to it that they can do it and explore it.

I visited the Nest Nursery to attend the baby massage classes that took place in a certain part of the nursery.
All of the staff were so friendly and helpful and made me and my daughter very welcome indeed. We had a tour of the nursery while we were there and it looked so much fun and the kids looked so happy.
I thought it was such a good idea for a nursery to offer some of their space to allow classes such as baby massage to take place. It allowed me to not only attend a class that my baby loved but also see the nursery environment where I wouldn't hesitate to take my daughter in the future.

This nursery is amazing! It's not focused on making as much money as it can it's main focus is the children. My daughter attends this nursery and loves every minute of it. Staff are warming and welcome you as part of the family. Children's minds are opened with the great environments the nursery offer. My daughter comes home telling me she's done yoga, forest school, music man has been, dance lesson. A full packed day not just sat in one room playing with toys but letting my daughter experience nature as it is in the fantastic garden setting they have. I could go on but the main thing to say is letting someone else look after your children is a massive risk we all take. But I 100% trust my daughter in this loving, safe and enjoyable environment every day.

My two grandsons went to this nursery. The staff are so good they stand up for everything they could dream of they are down to earth staff and there's not a day when my grandsons were not happy because the staff are very hard working and take their job seriously, also they have a zero tolerance of the use of mobile phones inside the building due to the child protection. The saying is the bestest nursery is The Nest is best. Couldn't ask for a better nursery at all.

I am a mother of three. My youngest child will be leaving to go to school this year. The staff have helped me as a working parent to bring my son up with the utmost respect for himself and others. The nursery is ran exceptionally well and I only wish that The Nest team had been there from the very beginning of all my children attending.
I would highly recommend this nursery not only for the amazing staff but for the most beautiful garden that they have adapted and turned into an adventure playground for the children's little imaginations to explore.
The nursery is a clean environment full of exciting learning toys where my son truly loves to be. I will be sad to know that come September I will no longer be needing their services. I can't thank the team enough for the hard work and loving care they have shown the children.

Since the Nest was taken over it has transformed visually and I have noticed my daughter's development has significantly improved. I have been going there for about 5-6 years now so I've seen the growth of the environment and the staff. I've even recommended the nursery to others. You are kept very well informed and my daughter is very happy there.

All the staff are very friendly and my Son always has a warm reception when he arrives. I go to work knowing that my son is well looked after and will be entertained and educated throughout the day.

My son has the opportunity to go outside in the garden which is much larger than many nurseries I have seen nearby. He also loves when the sing and sign lady comes (of which he has now learnt basic signs).

I would highly recommend the nest nursery to any parent

This nursery is fantastic, they allow children to be children knowing that they have the support and guidance of adults. All activities are child lead and the staff are fantastic at responding to the children's ideas. You never see a member of staff who is not happy to help. I wish I was a child so I could go here.

Our son has been attending The Nest Nursery since September 2015 and he absolutely loves it. He can't wait to go back the next day and his development is amazing to observe. He has come on in leaps and bounds since starting nursery and has acquired daily life skills which we, as working parents, cannot impart easily. We love the setting, we love the outside space, the warm happy atmosphere and the staff are great, quick to help and incredibly accommodating with regards to special requests - and we've had a few.

We would absolutely recommend The Nest Nursery at Wood's End to any parent.

Excellent, welcoming nursery, with great facilities. Healthy meals given daily. I've seen my son grow and develop whist attending The Nest Nursery. He enjoys his days at the nursery and has a good relationship with the staff and other children.
He is comfortable and happy in the nursery which is reassuring for myself. The nursery have a great outdoors area which is used daily. My son is a huge fan of this. All the staff are friendly and approachable.

Initially my daughter was about to start another nursery however I was not pleased/happy with her going there. I was aware of The Nest Nursery Wood End as my best friends children went there. I made contact and from the moment I walked in with my daughter I was instantly made to feel at ease with a warm friendly environment. My daughter at the time found it very difficult and stressful being in a new environment and socially with people but all the staff at The Nest Nursery Wood End were so supportive and let me do loads of settling in sessions in the summer with her and to take out time settling her in where other nurseries I viewed I feel didn't see the importance of this. My daughter has been at The Nest Nursery Wood End and she's like a changed child!! She's much more confident around people, social situations and her speech and confidence has really grown! It's a lovely environment, big garden and they tailor to every child's individual needs. Cannot recommend The Nest Nursery Wood End, Thank you! xx

I like the friendly atmosphere, the nurturing nature of the staff. My sons development has improved greatly whilst at the nursery. The activities they do with the children are varied and good for their development. My son is also learning sign language through the nursery which is an additional skill.

My daughter has being attending this nursery since last year September (2015). I must say I am very impressed they are attentive and caring. My daughter loves going to nursery, her key worker is very good. She went on her first trip to the Sealife centre which she loved.

My daughter is 16 months old (she is in the baby room) they teach the children from a young age educational facts such as sign language, singing/musical instruments,cooking, exploring outside in the garden, interaction with others/objects, painting, etc.

Food wise I take my hat off to this nursery as they cater for a wide range of dietary requirements and take the time out to ask questions.

The staff are very professional and are always at hand. They keep you up to date with your child's progress verbally, child's personal diary and on a tapestry (tapestry is a online journal where staff and parents can post pictures of their child only you and the staff members can see these pictures as well as being able to make comments a bit like a private forum).

The price is average, could be worse but this is a great nursery with lovely staff!!
