The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Sandhills Day Nursery (Codsall) 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 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sandhills Day Nursery (Codsall) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 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 4.768 for Sandhills Day Nursery (Codsall) is calculated as follows: ( (315 Excellents x 5) + (88 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 406 Ratings = 4.768

  • 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 4.6 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sandhills Day Nursery (Codsall) is based on 12 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.600

  • 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 and nursery have helped my son progress extremely well. It has been a joy watching him learn new things in nursery and bring them home. He seems to enjoy all of the activities that he does and likes the staff in each room he goes too.

I am very happy with the service from Sandhills, it is a friendly and welcoming environment. My daughter's development has come on leaps and bounds too. She enjoys all activities and enjoys going to nursery which makes it easier for me to go to work. I find the nursery are accommodating if I give enough notice, to swap days where I cannot get any childcare.
I feel like my daughter is well cared for and the development she receives is tailored to her individual needs.

The staff at Sandhills, Codsall are exemplary. They are committed, caring and loving towards every single child.
Our daughter started her journey at Sandhills in August 2016. She was nine months old and was very attached to both myself and her dad and we were very worried that she wouldn't settle in. Now, 8 months on - our little girl is confident, very chatty and independent. The staff have shown her so much love that now she feels safe when we drop her off. Without the dedication of the staff and effective communication, this would not have been possible.
We look forward to continuing our daughters learning journey at Sandhills, Codsall.

From the very first time we came to Sandhills Codsall for a visit, my husband and I knew it was the one. We were taken round by the deputy who was very knowledgable about each room, the routines and the EYFS Curriculum. My son was also greeted by staff in the first few rooms we went into and then we were kindly asked if our son would want to spend the time in the baby room whilst my husband and I had a good look around. We've been happy with the information we receive about our son on every pick up about his day at nursery. He didn't immediately settle like we'd hoped, but the staff were very good with him. He now loves going to nursery and when we pick him up earlier than usual, he's not best pleased! Every occasion in the calendar (St Patricks Day, Children In Need, World Book Day etc) is celebrated. The EY Log is a great resource to learn/share about our child's progress through the observations at home and at nursery. The monthly newsletter is useful too! Thank you!

My daughter has been at Sandhills now for almost 3 years and I couldn't ask for a better nursery. All of the staff and management are friendly and very accommodating. There have been some big changes in our home life over the past 18months and the nursery staff and management team have been amazing through it all. I would definitely recommend Sandhills (Codsall)

My experience with Sandhills has continued from last seven years. Both of my children have attended this nursery. Staff are very supportive of parents and children's needs. Great place for kids to start their journey of education. Varied activities done here have always motivated my kids to develop their confidence. I will recommend this place to all. One of the best decision I have made to give my kids the best start. Manager and the staff team are always very attentive to individual needs of every child. Extreme attention to detail has always been their main focus. Keep the good work on!!!

I wholeheartedly trust and respect every member of the Sandhills team, we leave the most precious thing in our lives with them every day knowing that he will be well looked after, loved, entertained and developed. The change in my son is amazing from being there with other children, but without the dedication and commitment of the team, this wouldn't have happened. We really cannot find the words to thank everyone enough.

Both my children have come to Sandhill's Day Nursery (Coldsall). One is now ten and the other is 2 and a half. I know whether I leave my son walking in happy or crying because he hasn't quite settled into his new room he will be looked after and cared for as if I was there. When looking for nurseries there was no choice for me, I went back to a nursery with rooms all on one level, staff that are child focused and all this at a competitive price to other nurseries. The marking of ten years of Sandhills prompted me to write this review as all the staff deserve it.

Lovely nursery, my son is very happy there. Great outdoor space they use whenever possible. Very helpful in being flexible when I need to change days for work. I like their flexibility in moving children between rooms when they are ready for it rather than at set ages.

My daughter has been attending Sandhills since last July and I have never left her upset or picked her up upset and this is a credit to the staff that work here. She is happy and content. The staff know each child regardless of how many they are looking after that day. I love the fact that she has the opportunity to spend some time outside and have fun. I can't recommend highly enough. Keep up the hard work you all do as it doesn't go unmissed. Thank you so very much.

I am so pleased with how well my daughter settled into nursery. Her development has progressed even more since starting nursery. She is a happy, sociable and chatty 22 month old. Nothing is too much to ask - members of staff have a great parent/carer relationship involving us as parents into her nursery life. The outdoor classroom is a brilliant facility and gives children the opportunity to explore different areas and resources at the same time as exploring the great outdoors. Staff are fantastic.

Since my daughter has begun her time at the nursery she has come on a tremendous way. Always learning new things every day and developing to become a more sociable child with great interactions. All the girls are happy to help and adhere to the parent's needs. My daughter really looks forward to going to nursery every day and learning new things. I am so pleased with everything the nursery has done for my daughter.

While my daughter has been at the nursery I have seen many changes which have always improved the care or quality the nursery provide to the children. The new outdoor area is amazing and the children always have big smiles while they are outside. I would recommend this nursery as the standard of care is very high and the child is always put first.

My daughters have both attended Sandhill's Day Nursery and have both thoroughly enjoyed their time in this setting. The staff and management team provide excellent care and compassion to the children in their care. As a mother I feel listened to and feel that my views are respected as a parent. The nursery staff provide a variety of stimulating activities and the outdoor space has been creatively designed to encourage imaginative play. The semi-rural setting is ideal and both of my children have enjoyed walks to see the horses at the rear of the grounds. I would like to thank the team at Sandhill's again for their dedication and commitment.

I have been very happy with Sandhills since my son started in April. They have made a huge effort to settle him in and have made accommodations for his dietary requirements.
They have fostered bonding and are focused on his development in a way I didn't expect.
I would certainly recommend Sandhills to any parent in the area.

There is a good balance of play and learning for children nearing school age. Excellent lunches and snacks. Overall I would recommend this nursery and so would my child.

Our daughter has attended the nursery for 5 months. The staff are friendly, well trained and nurturing. The settling in sessions were very good, we both felt that is allowed our daughter time to adjust, as well as us.
The staff adapt to each child, engaging our daughter in her interests and work to stimulate and develop her. Nursery organised sessions which we found to be very informative and enabled us to support her more at home.
The new outdoor classroom is an excellent addition, and we look forward to our daughter being able to access this soon. The staff are approachable and address issues as and when they arise.

They are always aiming to meet all my daughters needs. They always listen and put into action any suggestions I make regarding my daughters care. I drive 30 miles a day round trip to the nursery which is out of the way from my work, but it is worth it because it is the best around with high standards.

My child has attended Sandhills for the past 2 1/2 years. I have always felt happy and confident in leaving her at every stage at Sandhills. Over her time at Sandhills she has grown very fond of her carers and also the management team, who always make us feel welcome and her social skills have developed really well. In the last 12 months I have seen a big improvement in resources (toys,equipment) and especially the new outdoor classroom that I know my daughter enjoys immensely. I couldn't have chosen a better nursery to support my daughter with her development and learning and will be sad to part when she is ready for school.

We have always been happy with Sandhills. Our first child started here when she was 2 and a half and our second child at 12 months, so we have been coming for 3 and a half years now.
Both children settled very quickly and have enjoyed their nursery days throughout. They cope really well with the long days (7.30-5 PM) due to the structured routine and variety of activities. The staff always have time to discuss any concerns. Very happy.

As a parent it is so important to have confidence in the people and place that looks after your children. Sandhills in Codsall has constantly exceeded my expectations over the 5 years that both of our children have attended. The staff, the facilities, the settling, the care and the policies all seem to us to be of the highest possible standard, and we are very grateful to everyone involved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

The staff are very friendly. They always go the extra mile in ensuring we are happy with the care they give our child. Our daughter has attended since March 2014 and at the start, as any parent, we were very nervous about leaving her, but the staff totally put us at ease. She now knows the staff very well and we feel 100% comfortable leaving her and know she's in safe hands. She always tells me what a good day she has had when I collect her and she actually asks to go to nursery and see her friends, which is lovely and reassuring.

They do lots of fun activities and lots of reading. She just loves the nature walks the staff take her on. And their new outdoor classroom is brilliant and used regularly.

The management are approachable. The office door is always open and they always deal with any request promptly. One of the reasons we made our decision about Sandhills was that the Manager did our initial visit. She showed us around and answered every question we had without hesitation., making us feel totally at ease. We didn't have that experience with the other couple of nurseries that we looked at.

We would definitely recommend Sandhills to any parent.

I have 2 young boys and both of them have attended Sandhills Day Nursery. I have always been really pleased with the approach of all staff from daily catch ups on my sons day as well as email communication making us feel a valuable stakeholder within the business. I believe the best measure of a business is repeat business and I was so pleased with the care and development of my eldest son that I now have my youngest at Sandhills and he loves it.

The entire experience at Sandhills is exceptional and the dedication to all areas of the children's well being from health and safety to their individual learning needs, to the happiness of all those who attend is beyond expectation.
We have seen our daughter grow and blossom over the course of her time at Sandhills (April 2013/August 2015) and its in part thanks to the experience she has had there.
Would we recommend Sandhills? Yes, without hesitation.
Sandhills has assisted in encouraging her confidence to try new things and has helped our daughter to become the intelligent and independent person we know her to be.
The staff at Sandhills are extremely approachable, on the occasions that our daughter progressed through the different classes we had an issue with toileting however after talking with them this was soon resolved. Management and staff have always made themselves available to hear praise and any concerns and have always dealt with things promptly and appropriately.
