Reviews

9.5 Fairytales Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.549)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Fairytales Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fairytales Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 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 4.873 for Fairytales Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (422 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 479 Ratings = 4.873

  • 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 4.676 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fairytales Day Nursery is based on 10 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.676

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

Very pleasant nursery for my child to attend. It is a very welcoming place. Staff are really friendly and will do anything to help. Since my child has been attending he has grown in himself and become much more confident allowing him to be more outgoing. Would highly recommend this nursery to anyone as a very enjoyable place for my child to be.

Thank you for your review.

The nursery staff are all very caring of all the children and aware of the individual issues. My daughter loves coming to nursery and enjoys all aspects - playing in the home corner, outside etc. She particularly likes her specific nursery nurse and has a strong bond with all the staff, and they with her. The nursery is constantly updating equipment and cleaning.

The staff at Fairytales Day Nursery have worked wonders with my son, who was proving difficult to settle. They have catered for his every need from arranging different meals as he has funny eating habits to his toilet training. He has changed from a quiet, shy little boy into a happy, confident little boy. I simply can't praise them and thank them enough. They are amazing!

My son joined Fairytales Day Nursery 3 months ago and is very happy he even reaches out of my arms when I drop him off as he is so pleased to be there. They do lots of activities including a trip to the zoo. His development has come on leaps and bounds, including his speech and walking. He is also very confident. The facilities are great and always clean. The food always seems to go down well and his eating has improved.

My little boy loves coming in 3 times a week, from the first 2 weeks we could see immediate improvement in himself and within a few months he started walking which I believe was greatly helped by all staff. Everyone are always welcoming and I feel that he is 110% safe in this environment. There's always something new and exciting for him to play and learn with. It's a positive and stimulating place to be in with adaptations for all the children.

My daughter recently started at the new site of Fairytales. She gets excited as soon as we reach the front door! All the staff are friendly, approachable and welcoming. The childrens individual needs are catered for and met and staff and management go above and beyond. The site itself is the best I have seen by far, beautifully decorated and set out and the preschool has rooms according to the various learning areas, as well as a wonderful soft play room. I cannot recommend this nursery enough!

Thank you very much.

Excellent nursery where my 3 children attended for 12 years in total.
The owner is just amazing, with a complete sense of pride in what she has built up, and lives and breathes the excellent values that Fairytales Day Nursery work to every day.
There is always laughter and love whenever you go, and a fantastic education programme that has helped my children in their following school years, with each one of them in top sets for everything.
The staff are always there with a welcoming smile and friendly attitude which makes the children's experience so much better and for the parents leaving them too!
I would recommend this nursery to everyone I knew.
Thank you Fairytales for being such a huge part of our lives.

Debbie Latewood, Manager at Fairytales Day Nursery responded to this review on 18 Feb 2016:

Thank you so much for the lovely review.

Wonderful nursery, my eldest attended here years ago, so of course when it came to finding a nursery for my little one, Fairytales was my first choice. To my joy, I found that the nursery was still to the exceptional standards I had encountered previously. This put me at complete ease, as I instantly knew my child's journey through Fairytales would be a positive one for us both.
The progress he has made since when he initially started in baby room and has now gone up to the pre-school class, has been astounding. I firmly believe he would not be the little boy he is if it weren't for the input of the nursery. The atmosphere is great, staff are always warm and welcoming, and the bonds they develop with the children are heart warming! My son talks very fondly about them, which makes me smile as he is 3 years old and has so much to say lately. According to him, the food is also good.
Children partake in a variety of activities both fun and informative. I am always told about what my child has done during the day, and the Key Person Reports that are provided on a termly basis vigorously cover his development from a variety of aspects.
We are really enjoying our time at the nursery, and I know it will be a very sad day for us both when it is eventually his final day and time for us to say goodbye.

What a wonderful review thank you so much xx

My Grandchildren have always attended Fairytales, they had a gap of about 6 months, and when returned in May of 2015 it was like coming back to family, they are the most friendly people you could meet, very obliging, always putting the children first. Communication is excellent and the learning skills that my 2 year old granddaughter has obtained with the help of excellent key workers and not forgetting the students is outstanding. My grandson moved in to Reception in September and every morning when doing the drop off his words are can I go to Fairytales, he misses his friends and staff, they make a fuss of him every morning. He looks forward to the holiday club and always is excited to attend.
The communication is really excellent and they sometimes spot an issue with a child before you do. The food is very well balanced and they are encouraged to eat fruit and vegetables.

Once again we are all like one big family!
Excellent value for money! Even though I would pay top money with how the children's academic achievement is progressing.

Thank you for a lovely review.

I had looked in to nursery placements for my 3 year old daughter since the beginning of 2015 and Fairytales was the only one I liked but unfortunately there were no spaces available due to the fact they are so good here everybody wants their children to go to Fairytales so I waited and she started Sept 2015.
My daughter suffers with major separation anxiety from me to the point that she won't even sleep at her nannies houses so for the 1st month it was hard to get her to go in and leave me but the girls there are amazing.
Her separation anxiety has gone and she now runs into nursery really excited which is fabulous.
All the staff at fairytales are just fantastic, the owner is lovely my daughter adores them all she loves nursery school so much.
She brings home gorgeous pictures and paintings that she's made for me there.
They give me a report of her day when I go to pick her up which is always great , she has come on Leaps and bounds since starting
Fairytales 3 months ago, she isn't just having fun and playing she's also learning a lot too. I can't recommend it high enough.
Amazing nursery amazing staff.

Great friendly nursery that taught my children ever so much. They absolutely loved coming here, with the dedication and the friendliness of the staff being a contributory factor. Despite the outdoor space not being massive, they have done wonderful things with it, and the range of activities they undertake with the kids is brilliant.

Many thanks for that fabulous review xx

I came to Fairytales after viewing a couple of nurseries in the Dudley area for my then 8 month old daughter.
From the moment I walked in I knew this was the one.
The staff are so friendly and understanding and the management are amazing. My daughter is so forward with her speech and they help her in every way they can. I love receiving her reports as I can see from them what happens on a daily basis what activities she has done and what she has eaten etc.
I could go on and on but 1 word that best describes this nursery is just amazing.

aww thank you for that lovely review.

Our daughter started this nursery in July 2015 and so far it's been fantastic. Our daughter has learnt so much even at the age of 10 months. The activities they do here are second to none. Our daughter has enjoyed the food which she has a variety each day. It's such a difficult decision picking a nursery, but after viewing this one it was made an easy decision. I'm really looking forward to the next few years watching my daughter develop further. Thank you all.

My daughter attends this nursery full time. Every morning she asks if she can go to nursery and every evening when picked up she cries to leave. She loves it and is always talking about her teachers. She has healthy fresh cooked meals every day. Her speech has really improved since attending. I wish there was a book or some way for myself to find out what she has eaten or done, as my partner picks her up and has normally forgotten by the time he has got home. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

We had to make the difficult decision of which nursery to leave our 4 month old with and eventually decided on Fairytales...and that was over three very happy years ago! Our son has made great developmental progress as well as lovely relationships with the nursery staff over the years.

Definitely would recommend.

About 2 years ago we made the difficult choice of selecting a nursery for our little one. We tried and visited many nurseries with no success. We came across Fairytales and after visiting a few times we knew that this was the place for our child. Believe me when I say, I highly doubt there is a better nursery in the Dudley borough.

Every single member of staff (past and present) could not do enough for our child. Since he has been there he has learned to walk, talk, count and they have really helped nurture him into the caring bright and considerate little boy that he is today.

He enjoys going to nursery and he has a lot of time for the staff (some in particular but I can't mention names). He receives development reports which are a good way of letting us know as parents what we need to work on at home.

From the manager, to nursery nurses they are all a credit to Fairytales and make it what it is. If you have any qualms about where to take your child in the Dudley borough, seriously consider this place. There is no doubt in my mind that when our next little boy arrives, he will also be attending Fairytales.

The OFSTED Outstanding ratings that they receive are no fluke, the are a credit to the community and education system.
