Reviews

8.2 Huggies Day Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.176)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Huggies 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Huggies Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.833 for Huggies Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.343 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Huggies Day Nursery Ltd is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.093

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

Reviewer Connection to Huggies Day Nursery Ltd

  • Mother of Child

Huggies Day Nursery is excellent. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, facilities, space, activities environment, the organisation is all superb. Having used a different nursery with my first child for one year, we moved to Huggies when our old nursery closed. At the time I was devastated to move my nearly 2-year-old to a different nursery, however, it soon became the best decision ever to use Huggies. I looked around a lot of nurseries but Huggies far stood out from the rest. My daughter is in the pre-school room and my son in the baby room. It's a very engaging nursery, learning is excellent. My daughter came on leaps and bounds thanks to Huggies. Huggies is a fantastic nursery, I cannot recommend enough.

Dawn, manager at Huggies Day Nursery Ltd responded to this review on 18 Apr 2017:

Thank you for you lovely review, we love it :-)

Huggies has been a fabulous nursery for me and my daughter she started when she was 9 months and been there for 3 years every room from baby to preschool were brilliant. All staff are friendly and very helpful I have an ever changing rota which has been difficult to sort out they have always tried their best to accommodate us. My daughter has come on more and more everyday she has learnt such a lot there and has always enjoyed her time at nursery. The stay and play afternoons for parents or grandparents are great and the food is very healthy my daughter has always eaten great at nursery. They were so helpful with potty training, personal issues and getting rid of the dreaded dummies ha. I'm so glad i chose Huggies, me and my daughter think it's a super nursery and would recommend to anyone. Going miss the place xxx

Well what can I say except amazing staff and management throughout the nursery! My son was diagnosed with severe hearing loss and the nursery accommodate to his needs exceptionally. His speech is slightly behind for where he should be but you wouldn't think it with the utmost support he gets from the staff in every room he moves up into. I would recommend Huggies to any parent who asks and I would not go anywhere else. My older child also attended the nursery 7 yrs ago and the nursery has always strived to be outstanding. Keep up the good work! ??

My daughter has been with Huggies since she was 5 months old, I couldn't ask for more. Through every stage she has been nurtured and supported and is now (I think !) well rounded and bright and prepared for school this year. I will continue to use Huggies for after school and holiday clubs.
Huggies staff are brilliant and you always feel your child is in great hands .
The tapestry system is great and gives you insight into how your child is developing and ideas for home.
The setting is perfect with the age based rooms and great outside space.
Good variety of food provided.

The staff at Huggies have been very supportive with my son as he has cerebral palsy. They have followed advice from his physio to do exercise to assist his movements. My son enjoys going to nursery and enjoys the activities that are arranged.

I cannot praise this nursery enough. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time there. All staff are extremely professional and accommodating. Management are very approachable and keen to resolve any problems. The children are very well cared for and the variety of activities mean they never get bored. All meals are freshly prepared daily with a wide range of dishes. My daughter will be leaving in September to start school and we will both miss the nursery and staff very much. I do however intend to use the school holiday club which I have heard is also as good.

Thank you for your lovely review. It means a lot to us that we are providing a service to you that you are happy with!!! We will miss your daughter when she goes to school x

Huggies is fantastic. My little boy has been coming to the nursery since he was 10 months old.

He has come on leaps and bounds since starting at the nursery.

The staff are amazing they are all so welcoming, friendly and easy to talk to. They are always loving and caring towards my son and I can go to work knowing that he is well looked after and is having lots of fun.

The variety of food and activities are excellent.

I have no complaints about Huggies and I highly recommend them to my friends and family.

My daughter has been at Huggies full time since she was 6 months old and she loves it. All the staff are so friendly and really care about her. They have been really supportive through a few health issues providing excellent care and additional support when needed. The range of activities each day is amazing and they are doing a great job starting to prepare her for school with their work on mark making and phonics. Thank you to all staff for making her time with you so enjoyable.

Our daughter has been here for 2 years, from age 2. We love it and will definitely be sending our son too.
It's such a nurturing place. Our daughter is only there 3 mornings per week but every member of staff knows her. She thinks Huggies is awesome.
I am impressed with the range of activities. My little girl has come home excitedly talking about holding owls and lizards, meeting a police officer and his dogs, hatching chicks, singing at the retirement home, the music man, growing vegetables and regular classes in Spanish, dance and Bee Active (sports activities). They also have lots of activities which the children can explore at their own pace; a reading corner, role play areas (construction, hairdressing, etc), messy play and crafts which seem to change daily so there is always something new.
The staff are so friendly and my daughter feels very comfortable. They communicate really well, telling us concerns and celebrating her successes so I always feel she's well cared for.
