Reviews

10 Humberstone Day Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.962)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Humberstone Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.962 for Humberstone Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (277 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.962

  • 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 Humberstone Day Nursery is based on 24 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 9 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.

A very friendly, nurturing nursery with a family feel. As soon as we walked in for our initial visit we knew that this was the right nursery for us. Staff go the extra mile when caring for both the children and parents to give feedback. Our child has excelled since starting at the nursery we'd highly recommend it.

We have a 2 1/2-year-old and a 9-month-old both attending Humberstone Day Nursery. Both our girls thoroughly enjoy going to nursery, they both have an excellent rapport with staff, as do we parents. Management and staff are always friendly, welcoming and happy to help and go the extra mile. It is a difficult transition to leave your children when they are so young - but Humberstone Day Nursery makes it so much easier to do knowing your child is happy, safe and really cared for makes such a difference.

Putting your child into nursery can be a very upsetting experience when your child is a very clingy child and hates being separated from his/her parents.
Humberstone Day Nursery is an amazing environment and my son doesn't even bother when he has to leave me. The staff are outstanding, caring and will go above and beyond to make sure your child is safe and happy. The nursery is clean, very welcoming and a home from home. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

We feel Humberstone Day Nursery is fantastic. All the teachers are brilliant, very friendly and helpful.

Overall very happy and would definitely recommend it to others.

This is an excellent nursery that both of my children have attended over the past 6 years. The staff are well-trained and caring and have rapport with the children. There is a good range of activities available including plenty of outdoor play. Communication and involvement of parents is a particular strong point. I would recommend to anybody.

Absolutely amazing nursery. My daughter has now been here for just over 10 months and she has learnt so much in such a small amount of time. She comes home every day learning something new. The staff are fantastic and helpful. The nursery feels like a home rather than a commercial business, making you feel at home. They go through targets for the children and try and help them reach their goals. It takes me 20 minutes just to get my daughter to leave the nursery, as she loves it so much. It also helps us, mothers and fathers, as we know our children are in safe hands.

Humberstone Day Nursery has been amazing for my daughter. She settled within a couple of weeks and they have been so accommodating with our dietary requirements and when I needed to increase our daughter's days. The nursery has really nurtured my daughter at such an important stage and has become so confident, chatty and loves going to nursery and seeing her friends and teachers.

The moment we first stepped into the nursery, we knew it was the one for our son. The warm and welcoming staff, the unlimited activities and opportunities and the connection with parents are only a few characteristics of Humberstone Day Nursery. They have given our son the best possible start in life and we couldn't thank the team enough for all their tireless efforts.

My daughter has been attending since she was 9 months old and I am so pleased with everything. All staff are fantastic, the nursery is outstanding and I've never had any problems at all in any areas. The children are so happy. It feels like a home from home and they get a great balanced diet. My daughter's development is far advanced and I strongly believe this is down to the nursery!! I feel at ease when leaving my daughter and would never change nursery.

Both of my children have attended nursery 8 years ago, and currently. This nursery is a home from home, which makes settling in and transitions a lot easier for the children. The staff are so friendly, they are now family to my babies! The nursery never fails to meet our needs, whether it be for allergies or health issues. This nursery goes above and beyond. You can't put a price on the childcare, the Humberstone Day Nursery provides, it really is the best!

Our son has been attending this nursery since November 2016. He commenced his place at the nursery aged 6 months, so initially, we were worried as to how he would settle in and how much care he will receive. Humberstone Day Nursery staff have been absolutely outstanding, our son has settled in very well. The staff have taken care of all his needs from feeding to assisting with his development. We receive a family report on how his day has been and they communicate everything in detail. They have also gone above and beyond their duty in assisting with weaning and developing his motor skills. He has fresh meals every day and management have been absolutely superb! We highly recommend this nursery - five stars from us :)

I am extremely impressed with Humberstone Day Nursery after looking at quite a lot of other nurseries. This one stood out for all the right reasons. The staff are consistent (you always see the same faces), they are friendly and very open. I collect my son from the classroom and it always seems buzzing! my 9-month-old daughter has also recently started in the baby room and she has settled in and was happy after two days. Enough said!!

My child has enjoyed herself every time she comes to Humberstone Day Nursery. As soon as I tell my child where we are going, they are excitedly waiting with their coat on at the door. All the staff are friendly and welcoming and very understanding of my 'new mom' questions. They are always happy and eager to help and support where they can. It's a 'home from home' atmosphere for my child where I know they are being well looked after, stimulated and cared for with the love I would give if I wasn't at work- Our extended family! A fantastic, outstanding nursery!

The staff are friendly and helpful. They keep me up to date with my child's progress and development, and we can bring her book home to look at, at our leisure.
My child has many opportunities to learn and develop using a variety of materials and methods both indoors and outdoors, and their new forest area is definitely a hit with my little girl who loves exploring.
My child has forged strong relationships with the staff and other children and enjoys all aspects of nursery life.
They have helped with the basic rules of everyday living, with both of my children and have helped them to understand the world around them, including toilet training and manners as well as difficult concepts such as sharing.
My children are more confident and sociable because of going to nursery and the support and guidance they have received from all the staff.
I consider the staff to be my children's family and trust them implicitly.
