Oakfield Nursery School is a second-generation, family-owned and managed nursery school.

The nursery has received several national awards, most recently gaining the national award of NDNA's 'Nursery of the Year in UK 2014'.

Oakfield gained an 'Outstanding' rating in all areas in its Ofsted inspection in March 2016.

Oakfield’s reputation lies in its ability to embrace new learning in childcare and education. The marrying of old and new is reflected in the environment itself - an impressive, Victorian building with 18 bright and spacious contemporary playrooms, which are equipped with the latest quality toys and educational resources. Children stay in small intimate groups with their friends and key workers but have access to several rooms including a separate dance studio, art rooms and a dining room.

Children are cared for by highly skilled and qualified professionals who understand the importance of giving children the emotional and loving support they need in order to learn and achieve. The children also enjoy the use of two separate outdoor areas, a playground and a garden at the back and front of the building.

Reviews

9.5 Oakfield Nursery School Ltd has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.456)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Oakfield Nursery School Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oakfield Nursery School Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.936 for Oakfield Nursery School Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (146 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.936

  • 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 4.52 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oakfield Nursery School Ltd is based on 13 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 25 positive Reviews (125 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 25 Target = 0.520

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

Oakfield is a wonderful nursery where children are well cared for and thrive.

Our sons are really happy there and we are confident in the professionals who work there.

The staff are kind, knowledgeable and reassuring.

We'll be very sad when both leave to go to school!

Our daughter was welcomed into Oakfield aged 12 months and has progressed through the Baby Unit, Toddler and Tweenies to Prep 1 Unit where she presently attends aged 2 and a half years. The team that has supported her on her journey have been superb. Firstly, giving care and reassurance to make her feel secure and loved, leading on to unique educational and social development at a pace to suit her personal rate of progression; but most importantly, every day she has lots of fun. We never have tears on the doorstep as she is comfortable, confident and happy at Oakfield which is as a result of the absolutely outstanding staff and strong leadership.

The owner's passion for high-quality childcare is evident in every element and I would highly recommend to any prospective parent - you wouldn't be disappointed.

This nursery is superb and I'm so pleased we chose this environment for our daughter.

The staff and management are fantastic and they clearly love their jobs. The attention to detail and love that my daughter receives is so comforting to us that we would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to friends and family.

Oakfield has been absolutely fantastic this year. I have two little ones attending who are thriving and doing incredibly well. The skills they have gained and their development is absolutely brilliant.

Going through a challenging time as a family this year, I can't thank Oakfield enough for being a solid constant and extremely supportive of our situation. The reassurance of knowing how well looked after, cared for and nurtured my little ones are is amazing. The facilities and energy of Oakfield is exceptional.

We have been more than happy with the care Oakfield Nursery has provided our daughter. The staff are focused and enthusiastic and learning opportunities are woven into every aspect of the day, cleverly disguised as play.

Our daughter has been very happy there and we wouldn't want her anywhere else.

We have been incredibly impressed with Oakfield since our child started in the Baby Unit. There is a great energy which runs throughout the nursery, and all members of staff are very caring and engaged. Facilities are outstanding and spacious, both indoors and out. Our toddler has settled quickly and is happy to go to nursery each time.

My daughter has been there just over one year now. We were impressed from our first visit to the nursery. She always seems very happy there, the staff are all extremely friendly and chatty. Considering the number of children and staff the place is always clean and tidy.

Our son is now in his second year at Oakfield and we couldn't be happier with sending him to this brilliant place. Staff foster a genuine connection with the children whose educational and emotional needs are fully considered and provided for.

I cannot recommend Oakfield enough.

Oakfield has been a part of my family for 7 years now. I have sent all 3 children to Oakfield. My eldest, now 7 years old has autism and we didn't know this until staff picked up on some unusual traits. I honestly think my son wouldn't be where he is now in mainstream school without Oakfield picking it up so early and he is doing amazing now.

My second daughter, now 5 years old also went and was so happy there and now my youngest daughter now 19 months goes there and again is very happy and really developing well. They really are an amazing nursery, not a bad thing to say.

I now have my 3rd child at Oakfield Nursery School Ltd and have to say it is to my mind the 'best' nursery. If I could mark it above excellent, I would! My child feels secure and happy and is very well looked after meaning I feel happy getting on with my day too. There is a high ratio of fully qualified nursery staff to children and every day different activities are set out. It is very well structured and organised with much thought to your child's development. My child loves the dance, music and football sessions each week. The nursery itself is a beautiful building and has a very warm welcoming homely feel. My older two have left the nursery and were very well prepared for school and still have lovely friends from nursery. I cannot talk highly enough of Oakfield Nursery School Ltd as it has been, and still is, a fantastic part of my children's life.

My children are so happy and content here. The attention to detail is excellent and the staff certainly go that 'extra mile' to ensure that the needs of each individual child are met.
I feel that my children are extremely capable at such a young age because of the exceptional care, education and attention they receive.
The progress in their development has been outstanding and I know my children think here. It is in my mind the best nursery in the area and deserves every credit.
