Overview

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Edenhurst 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 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Edenhurst Nursery 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.

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 4.867 for Edenhurst Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (264 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 300 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 Edenhurst Nursery 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 12.8 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.

This is a very good nursery with caring, compassionate and well-trained staff. My son likes to attend nursery and he enjoys his time there with his friends.
He will be going to the Edenhurst school from September.

I have found the staff at Edenhurst Nursery extremely caring and genuine in the care and development of our daughter. They are very approachable and keen on working with us in any areas of concern that as a parent we may have. Our daughter enjoys going to nursery, and the activities that she takes part in are structured yet fun for our daughter. I would have no problems in recommending Edenhurst Nursery as a child care provider to any parent.

Both my husband and I have been and continue to be impressed with the standard of care provided for our daughter.

As new parents, we were understandably apprehensive (especially initially) about our little one's change of routine and how she would take to the new surroundings and people. From day one she has been put at ease and nurtured in her development. We continue to see daily changes in her character and skills, observe newfound confidence in interactions with her peers as well as adult carers. It is a great tribute to the staff's work and dedication to the children and the result is evident.

We are ever so grateful for the care and support received by our child at Edenhurst nursery and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation.

The nursery has been a fantastic setting for my baby who started at 6 months and has been there a year now. Her transition was seamless and she is always happy to go there and happy when I pick her up. The staff are caring and engaging, the food is varied. My ONLY negative is that it opens at 8 am and is slightly too late for me - if it opened at 7.45am it would be beyond perfect!

Lucy King, Marketing Executive at Edenhurst Nursery responded to this review on 24 Jan 2018:

Hi Clare, thank you so much for your review. We are delighted to hear you are so happy with the service the nursery provides. We are aware that some parents need to drop off before 8:00 am for work and we are currently reviewing our opening hours to see if we can open slightly earlier in future. More information about this will be circulated to parents in due course. Thank you again for the feedback!

We have utilised the nursery for two our of our three children to date and are very pleased with the facilities, staff and transition to full school, which the nursery offers.

An outstanding nursery with fabulous staff. They have brought both my children on leaps and bounds and both love attending 4 days per week! The communication on the curriculum is very good and the content is even better.

Great nursery with a warm learning environment.

They really work hard to ensure the children feel safe and comfortable while advancing their learning beyond what I would expect from a nursery. I am confident that my son will be more than ready to start school in September and that he will be well ahead of his peers because of the great staff at Edenhurst.

My daughter absolutely adores the staff and loves the nursery, she has been previously known to shout "TAKE ME BACK TO NURSERY RIGHT NOW!" after moving to a new class (she really loved it that much). We get a lot of communication and artwork back so we know what she has been working on each week. Dinners are lovely and there are always engaging and fun activities to participate in. They sing to the children and play instruments and get a weekly rhythm session. The older nursery children like mine do music lessons, PE and French.

I would highly recommend Edenhurst Nursery. All of my three children have attended. My children are now 10 and 6 and still love chatting with the staff!
My daughter is 21 months and attends full time. She is really happy being there and will happily go in to have breakfast with her friends when I drop her off. The staff are extremely approachable and will do their best to carry out any request to ensure your child is happy.

We are very satisfied with the level of service we have received by Edenhurst. We really would recommend sending children to this nursery. Both our children have attended and we feel they benefited from this when they started school.

The nursery have always been accommodating and flexible when our working hours have changed. The staff are always pleasant and seem to have the child's best intentions in their hearts.

My son is extremely happy to arrive at nursery, and is easily left. I cannot walk away from him in any other setting (i.e. With family) without tears.
When I collect him he appears content. He is always clean at the end of the day, clothes not stained and I have never had issues with a sore bottom.
He appears to eat well also.
The staff are all welcoming and seem familiar with my son even if they do not work in his room.

My daughter absolutely loves the nursery. She's made brilliant progress whilst she has been there. I'm kept updated every day on what she's done that day and weekly on what she's learning the following week. We get regular reviews of her progress against the EYFS curriculum. An outstanding nursery with caring, friendly, compassionate and professional staff who are helping my child become a confident, happy and clever little girl.

My daughter joined Edenhurst Nursery in October 2016 at 18 months old having previously attended a different nursery. Despite me being extremely anxious about moving her, she has settled in extremely well and loves her new friends and carers. The Nursery is modern and purpose built, and has a lovely outdoor play area. It is also relatively small, so my daughter gets lots of 1-2-1 attention and I really like that the Nursery emails parents every Friday afternoon with a weekly planner which shows what activities she will be doing the following week. The staff are all lovely and knowing my daughter is being well loved after while I am at work gives me great peace of mind. I'd highly recommend the Nursery to anyone looking for a caring, friendly and educational setting for their child.
