    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.

Our 6-month old has been at Buttercups for 2 months now and she absolutely loves it.
We were a bit anxious at first, but seeing her face at the end of day 1 dispelled all concerns. She was glowing after an active and fun time painting, playing and doing other activities like baking; things we would never expect for such a young baby. It’s hard to fully describe the buzz that she clearly had during the day or our buzz at discovering what she could do at such a young age.

When we drop her off now she beams wide smiles and is clearly excited about the day ahead.
We’ve seen her development come on leaps and bounds since going to Buttercups Nursery, mixing with other babies is certainly a great benefit.
Buttercups’ nurturing environment and staff were obvious during our introduction walk around in the faces of every child. This is what made our mind up about which nursery to go with. Such a positive and happy vibe.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

I have two children who have attended buttercups since September. At first, I was very worried about my little boy; who had never been to nursery before, and my little girl (who had taken months to get used to the previous nursery she had attended) having to start all over again. All the staff were so understanding and supportive of both children (and me). To my surprise they both settled in really well and bonded with the staff very quickly, which made leaving them so much more easier, knowing that they are not upset feel safe. The staff are approachable and always have time to update you on how your children are doing. They encourage the children and their development. The team are a credit to the nursery. Both my children love attending nursery, they talk about their friends and the staff when they get home. My little girl had problems with her speech and didn't say a lot before September, now she surprises me every day! She is so much more confident. I couldn't ask for any more.

Buttercups is a fantastic nursery that we would recommend to anyone. We are always impressed by how well the staff seem to know our children, even those who are not permanent staff/keyworkers in their room. Our children are always happy to be left at nursery and we are always confident that they are being well cared for in a loving environment. The opening hours and being open over Christmas have been a fantastic help. The children have lots of space to explore both inside and outside, and the staff do many activities which have definitely helped our children's development. The creativity of activities in pre-school has been really impressive.

This is a wonderful nursery, staff did their utmost to settle my daughter into toddler room a year ago. She has since grown in confidence, which is primarily due to the nursery. She is now in pre-school, excelling there, enjoying learning French. The staff at this nursery are wonderful. They are caring and make nursery more like an extension of our family.

I have never used a nursery before but the nursery staff were very understanding and reassuring. My son has settled in very well and loves the staff. He is happy going into nursery, he appears to have an excellent relationship with the nursery staff smiling at them and leaning towards them. This makes us feel very reassured that he is happy here.
The two nursery staff have both demonstrated that they know my sons personality, what he likes to eat etc. other likes and dislikes showing how dedicated they are. We couldn't be happier with how they have cared for him.
