Reviews

9.8 Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.841)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery 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 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.841 for Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (223 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.841

  • 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 Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery is based on 14 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 11 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.

Our daughter started at Glen Jakes in September 2017. She was offered and attended "settling in" 3 times before officially starting to build her confidence in a new setting.

The staff are amazing and are always friendly and take care of her every need. The activities are varied and she enjoys "stretch and grow". They are always set up for the day's activities when we arrive at 8am and various staff members always greet us on arrival.

We could not be happier with Glen Jakes.

Both my children have attended Glen Jakes and found it hard to settle. Glen Jakes has always has gone above and beyond to make them feel loved and secure. I have seen my little girl become confident and full of knowledge as she has moved through the different nursery rooms and this is down to the hard work and care of the staff. My little boy still finds it hard to leave me, however, the staff working in his room are so full of love and enthusiasm each morning when I drop him off, that it makes it much easier to leave. I couldn’t ask for anything more from my children’s nursery and I thank all of the staff who have made it such a lovely nursery.

My little girl started Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery at the end of last year, she was almost 2 and she had previously been to a childminder, crying each time I dropped her off. I was so nervous to take her to nursery however Glen Jakes were brilliant.
They worked the settling in sessions around what worked for us, offering cuddles and a home from home.
They were in no rush to complete the sessions and we're led purely by my daughter.
The staff are brilliant, they have great relationships with the children and with each other, again adding to the homely feeling.
The activities are always brilliant, messy play, outside play, a structured circle time with set learning outcomes and copious amounts of free play.
I feel confident in the nursery workers, they communicate brilliantly, giving a full handover to parents each day and offer advice and support when needed.
I'm so pleased I chose Glen Jakes, my daughter loves going in and seeing her friends and looks forward to the great activities.
I would highly recommend

My son started at to Glen Jakes Private Day Nursery in June 2017 when I went back to work. He was so used only having me that it was a big change for him but after a few weeks he settled in perfectly. The staff are all so lovely, you can tell that they genuinely love and care about the little people who they care for every day, and they were so supportive with me when I was struggling when first returning to work as I hated to see my little boy upset. He is happy when he arrives at nursery and I get a big smile when I pick him up! We’ve seen his confidence growing each week, he’s learning new things and having fun in an imaginative and caring environment. There is a riding school next door where the children are taken to visit the horses, get some fresh air and have a mini adventure when it’s not raining. Food is freshly prepared on-site every day too.
Absolutely 5* to Glen Jakes, I highly recommend to anyone looking for a home from home for their precious little person, you won’t regret it!

My little girl started at Glen Jakes Private day Nursery when she was 6 months old and as a parent I was obviously very anxious at leaving my child for the first time, but the staff at Glen Jakes Day Nursery completely put my mind at ease and was amazing at settling my little girl into nursery life, my child is now 18 months old and loves her time at nursery, I couldn't want or ask for better staff to care and nurture my child during her time there, she has progressed so much and always has a fabulous day and I wouldn't send her anywhere else.

My fifteen-month-old son absolutely loves this nursery. The staff our lovely. Children are always entertained and cared for. There are lots of different activities for them to take part in, from Boogie Babies (an external company they bring in), sandpit play, painting, outdoor activity play, and walks down to see the horses etc. Myself and my partner both attended this nursery over thirty years ago and it's so nice to see it is still run by the same family.

My little boy started settling in sessions at Glen Jakes a couple of months ago. He was one and had always been at home with me. He found it very difficult to be separated from me and was very upset all day, every day, for the first few weeks. I was so impressed with the way that the staff at Glen Jakes dealt with the situation. They were patient and caring. They allowed him to have extra settling in sessions and were reassuring and supportive. He is now really enjoying his time there and is happy when I drop him off. He has developed a lot of new skills over the past couple of months and is clearly learning there. The staff are all approachable and easy to talk to. They are warm and affectionate with my little boy and I really feel that they know him well and care about him. He clearly loves them! This knowledge has really helped my transition back to work and I am extremely grateful to them all.

We have had two children go through Glen Jakes Day Nursery. We love the home-like feel the nursery has and the care the staff give to the children. The menu is extensive and home cooked. The children do lots of activities such as seeing the horses and doing activities to suit the season.

I love Glen Jakes Nursery, my son has attended here since being 10 months old and has always enjoyed coming, he has been in all of the rooms and is now in the pre-school room. He has come on in leaps and bounds and has learnt so much that he would have only learnt from being at nursery. I also like the fact that Glen Jakes is surrounded by such a lovely outdoor area, with the children being able to have access to the stables. I would highly recommend Glen Jakes Nursery.

My son has been at Glen Jakes Nursery for nearly 12 months and he always comes home stimulated and content. Glen Jakes Nursery has a great set up with a creative use of space and toys well beyond the usual range, the nursery is very clean and bright with a fantastic range of facilities. Glen Jakes Nursery is very organised and communication with parents is excellent, the staff are helpful and very approachable. The wall displays are always changing with the children's own work and lots of artwork is brought home too. I really feel that staff have always dealt with my son in an excellent way and treated him very much as an individual. I am confident my son is well cared for and would definitely recommend Glen Jakes Nursery to my friends and family.

I currently have a son in the baby room and my eldest son used to attend. Glen Jakes is a great nursery. All the staff care for the children and show nurturing and affection. Activities and resources are varied with lots as variety. My children's learning journeys have always been detailed and full of evidence and achievements. I love seeing photos they have taken during the day. I feel very involved with my child's learning. My eldest son had a brilliant start here and was in good stead when he left for school. I can see this happening for my youngest too. Thank you.

My two girls (3 years/10 months ) went to Glen Jakes Nursery and both loved it. They were full of smiles every day they went to nursery. Unfortunately, due to moving out of the area, we had to move nursery and my oldest still talks about the staff and friends there and misses them. Excellent, friendly and caring staff and great facilities. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

Both my babies have been attending here since April 2015 aged 2 years 2 months (son) and 1 year 2 months (daughter)...they both settled in great and the staff really helped me with my clingy unsociable daughter. They have both come on heaps and bounds with their social skills as well as learning. My babies will be attending until they both start full time school as I know they both love going to Glen Jakes x

Overall I'm happy with Glen Jakes, and my son always seems happy which is the main thing. I'm happy with his development and the support he gets from the staff. However, I do find it difficult sometimes to find out how he has been all day as the staff that are there in the morning are no longer then in the evening, or staff move from class to class. I do feel it would be better if staff were present from drop off to collection, although I understand for various reasons this is not always possible.

We have no issues with our son's care here. He loves it and I never feel like he's just a number. The girls will notice things like his new shoes or haircut. They are all so nice.

He does lots of varied activities which he always enjoys.
