    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.

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

The nursery is fantastic; has a homely and friendly atmosphere with outstanding staff, who are warm, friendly, very professional and supportive. A mass variety of educational toys and messy plays every week! Big thanks for the enormous input into the development of our daughter, especially for her! To know that our daughter is happy, being educated, cared for and developing in the most beautiful way - is priceless!

We were happy with the nursery for the majority of the time our child attended. Our concerns, when voiced, were addressed and resolved within a reasonable period of time. However, recently we had a dispute about the fees being charged and we felt (and still do feel) that these are not transparent and not communicated to parents effectively. Our child is nearing school age and is happy and settled here and well taken care of but in the future, we will be shopping around for another childcare provider. Particularly in relation to the grant entitlement and how these are applied.

I think Home from Home - The Nannery Ltd provides very good care. I am totally satisfied with the service I get. My child has learned lots since he's been here and his character has come out. All I can say is that I have only seen improvement in him since he's been attending this nursery.

Since my son has been at the nursery he has improved immensely. He has ASD and they have encouraged him to improve in his social skills that he lacks.
They also focus on his strong points and have helped him improve in that area.

The staff are all very friendly and my son is often talking about how much he likes them, something he rarely does with other adults. Would not hesitate to recommend the nursery.
