  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 89 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holyrood Nursery Swinton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 46 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 4.81 for Holyrood Nursery Swinton is calculated as follows: ( (891 Excellents x 5) + (140 Goods x 4) + (31 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 1062 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 Holyrood Nursery Swinton is based on 46 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 23.2 positive Reviews (116 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 46 Reviews ÷ 23.2 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 fantastic nursery where both my nieces have attended from being small babies right up to after school & holiday clubs. The staff here are fantastic and work very hard day In day out. The management is exceptional and extremely professional. My nieces love coming to the nursery where they progress academically on a level that is second to none.

I would recommend this nursery to anyone who may have the need for childcare

Friendly helpful staff. Handy and convenient as they take my son to his school and pick him up again afterwards. He has been there since he was six months old and the team have watched him grow up and is currently at the before and after school clubs.

My child has been at Holyrood since May 2015 since she was 8 months old. She has gained so much from going to Holyrood Swinton, she's a very confident polite child.
I can't recommend them enough! My daughter enjoys her time there while mummy is at work. In fact, when I collect her from her half-day sessions I struggle to get her out! She loves it that much. All the staff are nice, friendly, polite and encouraging.

Our youngest attends Holyrood Nursery Swinton, the eldest also went.
It is a fantastic Nursery, staff and management are approachable, professional and friendly! Any issues raised are dealt with efficiently.
Both our girls love their time at Nursery and form close bonds with their key workers starting from when they were 8 months old. They are excellent dealing with children when they are poorly (as we well know) and supported us as a family!!
Fantastic chef as well, my girls love Nursery meals.

My 3 yr old lad absolutely loves going to Holyrood Swinton. All the staff are very friendly and informative about the progress my lad is making on a daily basis. The play areas are excellent as are the rooms where the kids are looked after. My lad especially likes the guy who comes and teaches them how to learn football skills and also walking to the local library with his new friends.
I would recommend this nursery to any parents looking for top-notch childcare. 10/10.

My son has loved Nursery from his very first day here. All staff are polite and brilliant with the kids. Every meal served is thoroughly enjoyed by my son, nutritious and has widened my son's food choice as he is now much less of a fussy eater with help from the added encouragement from Nursery staff and the chef. There is always something taking place activity wise, the kids are always learning. Very happy with this Nursery and my son is too. I cannot recommend enough.

The team at Holyrood Swinton are exceptional. I have had two children attend the nursery in different capacities. I am confident they provide the best possible care. My daughter who currently attends the nursery is always excited to go in the morning and sad to leave at the end of the day. Well done to a fantastic team.

My son has attended this nursery for a while now and I’ve always felt 100% satisfied with the care, attention and love he receives while at Nursery. The staff clearly care, love and bond with each individual child and it shows with how much the children love them too and their time spent at Nursery. This Nursery is very organised and has a number of educational activities which keep the children entertained and learning all day. All staff are all very friendly and easy to talk to. Would not go anywhere else!

My son has attended this nursery since he was 5 months old and loves it every time he comes. He is now 6 years old and often attends the school holiday club. Most of the staff have seen my son grow and we have very fond memories of his time at Holyrood. We can’t recommend Holyrood enough. It is a lovely, clean, modern nursery with great staff from the manager, all the girls and the cook!

I had looked around a number of other nurseries, which I wasn’t happy with before I went to look around Holyrood. I was instantly made to feel at ease around the nursery by the professionalism of both the management and staff team. Both my sons settled really quickly into the setting and I was happy to leave them in the capable hands of the nursery staff. The cleanliness and orgasation of the rooms stood out from the other nurseries I had visited. I was confident both my sons were well occupied with a full range of activities prepared for each day. The meals they had were very varied and nutritious.

My grandson started Holyrood Swinton in January this year aged 9 mths, after spending all of that time mainly with mum he settled in really well within the first week. All the staff in the baby room were very welcoming and made mum really feel at ease in leaving him.
He really enjoys his time there playing with all the other children. He loves being able to wander around the room exploring all the toys and activities that are available.

The nursery provides a well-balanced menu, providing all dietary requirements to suit individual needs.
All members of staff are always very friendly and inviting when you arrive, especially the management team.
It is a very home from home, family-like setting.
I can't wait for him to be able to walk unaided so that he can go outside and explore all the outdoor activities.

My 3rd child attends this nursery. My 1st child came here in 2010 and the management and some the staff have stayed the same which to me shows a happy team. Happy staff=happy children and over the years the nursery has expanded and lots of money has been spent in the area for the older children both inside and out. I always recommend this nursery.

My child absolutely loves it at Holyrood Swinton! As expected he was a little bit apprehensive at first but settled in really quickly and now waves us off in the mornings! We’ve noticed a huge difference in our boy, his confidence is high and he really interacts well with people and other kids.
The staff are fantastic. Very friendly and helpful and you’re made to feel welcome every time you go in.
The variation of food is great too - the kids eat better than I do some days! Haha!

I would highly recommend Holyrood Swinton to anyone looking for a nursery.

The only minor blemish for me personally is the payment gateway. The website isn’t the easiest to navigate. A very small point though!

I moved my son to Holyrood Swinton after a bad experience with another nursery which he'd attended for 6 months. The difference in my son as soon as he started here was amazing. He's so much happier and his development has come on in leaps and bounds.

There is a really friendly and supportive atmosphere here and the staff build really good relationships with the children and parents. Learning is child led and you can see when you go into the nursery that all the children are engaged with the activities and really enjoy their time here.

The nursery itself is warm, clean and inviting and the outdoors area is brilliant, the food here is great too.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this nursery to anyone.

I love this nursery as it is right on my doorstep and fits in well with my working hours. I also love the fact that they can take your children to school also. They have a wide range of activities for the children to enjoy and are also fed well whilst they are in nursery.

The nursery is kept very clean and to a high standard and all the staff are very friendly and easily approachable if you do come across any problems. The children enjoy how well they get along with everyone and the different activities they can become involved in.

I would highly recommend this nursery.

All of my grandchildren have attended this nursery (my youngest 2 still attend). They have all come on leaps and bounds whilst attending and are so confident! The staff are so helpful and welcoming and always tell us what they've been doing. We get a diary so we can pass messages on to my daughter when she picks them up from me after work. I've recommended this nursery to lots of other people as I can't fault it.

Both of my granddaughters have attended this nursery in the past and my youngest granddaughter still attends the holiday club here. She loves it.

I cannot praise the staff at this nursery enough for their care, attention and professionalism. The manager and her team are a credit to the nursery. You only have to visit to see how happy the children are and the fantastic facilities they have here.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

I was a little nervous about leaving my daughter at nursery as other than when she was a baby I hadn't left her with anyone other than family.
I needn't have worried!
My daughter absolutely LOVES going to this nursery!
The nursery staff are all very caring and welcoming and always have a smile and a hello for you and your child as you walk through the door!
The way my daughter talks about the nursery staff when she gets home is fantastic, she's really bonded with them and that is important to me as a mother.
The nursery is clean with a wide variety of activities and toys and the outside play areas are brilliant and well used.
The food for the children is healthy and helps my daughter want to make better choices with her food.
The nursery and its staff really give me the feeling that my child is safe and looked after and I am never worried about leaving her there. They have really helped to prepare my daughter for going to school nursery in September and for that I'll be forever grateful!

Our daughter has attended Holyrood Swinton since she was 9 months. She will soon move into pre-school.
Both my husband and I hold the nursery in extremely high regard and could not recommend it more highly.
Our daughter settled straight away and has great relationships with staff. They all know her by name, even if she has not been directly in their care. The staff are helpful, friendly and welcoming but most of all extremely caring and our little girl loves attending. It's clear to see all the staff love working with children and are always seen interacting and encouraging them.
The management team are very approachable and supportive and deal with any minor issues immediately.
The nursery is open all year round and provides cover between Christmas and new year. The extended hours also offer flexibility for parents.
Overall the team do an absolutely magnificent job and we thank them for the dedication, commitment and passion they put into looking after our girls.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to Holyrood, it's a lovely friendly nursery and the staff are all really professional, they make the children feel comfortable and safe. Meal times are all home made meals to a high standard and the children can have more if they want, I'm 100% happy with my choice to put my daughter in this nursery :)

This nursery is fab!!! All 3 of my children have attended Holyrood Swinton, with my youngest still attending. She absolutely loves all the staff that work here and has a special bond with her key person. The nursery is excellent for my daughter's care, and the manager and her team are always willing to help out and go above and beyond.

This is such a well managed and organised nursery that has the home from home feel as soon as you walk through the door. It has excellent facilities, it is clean, staff are friendly, menus are nutritious, the manager is professional and makes time to come and speak and say hello to my daughter, there is an amazing spacious outdoors for all age groups - I could carry on all day with all the positives. If you're looking for a nursery place, Holyrood Swinton is the place to go!!! I feel it's the best decision I made sending my children here.

This nursery is fab!! I cannot praise them enough. There are a lot of nurseries in the area, but this was by the far the best, very big and spacious with a great staff team. This nursery should be outstanding. Yes there have been a few minor issues, but these were dealt with professionally and very quickly.

Going back to work when your baby is four months old is very hard! The girls made me feel so relaxed and I know he is being taken care of. Everyone is very reassuring and the fees being inclusive of milk and nappies is great! I know he is being looked after and can get on with my job without worrying. The nursery is clean, spacious and full of amazing staff! My daughters have also attended. Each room is amazing.

I have recently been picking up my niece from this fantastic nursery. Working in childcare myself, I was very interested in visiting. First impressions: The manager was extremely welcoming and very helpful and knew every child arriving at the nursery, this continued throughout the nursery. Lots of staff have been there a while which speaks volumes! Lovely, clean and bright nursery with great outdoor space and fantastic staff! :)

We, as parents of our child, are extremely likely to recommend Holyrood Nursey in Swinton. We can summarise as follows: very friendly staff, clean environment, very good and tasty food, flexible hours to our jobs (we are able to both work full time), good starting and ending hours.
Excellent.

Since starting in the middle of November the kids have been happy. The atmosphere in the place is very inviting and pleasant. Staff members are very friendly and kind. I especially like the layout of the building inside, very spacious and there is lots to do, I have not yet found anything negative to raise at this moment.

Despite joining the nursery relatively recently as parents myself and my husband are very happy about the service. Our son willingly attends everyday full-time sessions and seems to have remained outgoing and cheerful after changing the environment from staying at home- since joining he's become more vocal and develops his speech in line with expected changes at this stage. He's physically active which we can observe when picking him up in the afternoon when he plays with other children and mums around. On that basis, I believe the nursery creates/facilitates overall/including social child's development- we're happy with a variety of meals although I wouldn't mind introducing, even more veg and fruit. Staff also are very communicative and informed about our son's activities throughout the day.

I collected my granddaughter from this nursery for the first time in August. My first impressions were welcoming and warm! The staff were very helpful and informative and couldn't do enough for me (I couldn't work the pram and they were on hand to demonstrate) :) I was acknowledged by all members of the team, including the chef- it felt very home from home!

Our daughters nursery have been wonderful; from the friendly staff to the ongoing improvements being made to the facilities. Both my wife and I feel our daughter has got good personal skills with other children, which she might not have, had she not been at nursery.
We see an improvement almost on an daily basis and some of that is down to the brilliant staff of Holyrood Nursery (Swinton). Thank you.

As a parent my requirements are simple, a safe environment for my child with exceptional care but above all an enabling environment where my child can grow as an individual. Holyrood Swinton meets all these. I do not have to worry about my child because in just over a year he has developed exceptionally well. The nursery is the epitome of cleanliness , the staff are polite, forthcoming and keep me well informed about his progress or what I can do to help with his development. The upgrades they have made outside are pretty wonderful and safe for children to play in. I am confident leaving my child all day because I know in my absence he won't miss me while he enjoys himself under the best care available. Thank you all, you do a wonderful job and I appreciate it .

My daughter has been going to Holyrood Swinton for three years and loves it there. She always asks to go even at weekend and loves all the staff especially the staff in the kitchen and loves the food that they cook. I will be very sad when she leaves in September as she has learnt a lot there. The refurbishment looks great and my daughter loves it too.

The nursery was recommended to myself from a mum at school, I was not disappointed. From meeting the manager for the first time, she immediately put my mind at ease, welcoming me and my daughter to the nursery. Staff very friendly and accommodating, the recent works at the nursery are a fantastic addition with amazing outdoor facilities. Excellent meals/snacks and I love the fact that the children selves themselves. Thank you and well done Holyrood Swinton.
