  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunny Days Private Day Nursery, Ellesmere Port in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.719 for Sunny Days Private Day Nursery, Ellesmere Port is calculated as follows: ( (227 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 299 Ratings = 4.719

  • 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 4.51 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunny Days Private Day Nursery, Ellesmere Port is based on 5 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.510

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

My daughter has been going to this nursery for the last couple of years and her development in everything is coming along amazingly. The staff are so encouraging and very friendly towards all the children, they always find the time to assist and set tasks which I can help with for my daughter's development and learning at home further. My daughter loves coming here as she loves talking and receiving cuddles from the staff and has such a lovely bond with them all. Every time I drop my daughter off for her sessions the staff always make time to chat with me and listen to any concerns I may have and action accordingly.

My little girl loves this nursery. She originally was in a different nursery which she had been in since 9 months old, but due to closure, she moved to this one. I was really worried how she would adjust because she didn't know anyone in Sunny Days, but they made her feel relaxed straight away and paid her the attention she needed to build up her confidence and make new friends. The nursery workers are lovely and I 100% trust leaving my little girl there.

My daughter's nursery closed down over Christmas where she has been since she was 9 months old. We viewed Sunny Days and loved it. We were warned about her settling in but she absolutely loved it and the staff. She couldn't stop talking about her day when she got home. We are really pleased wth it, the food is great, great staff in the toddler room and lots of outdoor play and painting.

The staff at Sunny Days are amazing. My daughter has been attending baby room/tweenies for almost 5 months and is well settled in. The staff provide a wide range of learning activities including messy play, arts and crafts, reading and singing and the nursery has a large outdoor area. The nursery itself is clean and welcoming and the food is freshly prepared daily by the excellent cook!

Such a fantastic nursery, I knew the second I walked in that it was the right one for our little girl. They've just thought of everything, the staff are so lovely and my baby loves being there! Love the fact they can update how she's eaten and slept in the day, makes going back to work so much easier! Have already recommended this nursery to friends, I know my little girl is going to love coming here :)

My son will be going to school in September and I know he will miss his nursery dearly. He has a great bond with all of the staff and has been very happy that he has been taught French. I hope to continue with this. Coming to this nursery has really helped him with confidence and allowed him to form relationships with children and other adults.

Our daughter attended this same nursery 3 years ago. The quality of care then was excellent and still is now. We can not fault the girls, they are great. The nursery is always clean and our son is very happy there. I must say however that the activities now are not as diverse and frequent, we think this may be down to the mix of babies and tweenies now in the same room.

My kids love going to nursery, the staff are lovely. The kids have taken a shine to two members of staff, my daughter adores her key worker and she is forever talking about her at home. My son loves his key worker too, she is amazing with him but overall all the staff are very nice. My daughter was very shy and distant before she started nursery but now she amazing, she has come out of her shell so much and has made so many friends. Both of my kids learn new things regularly and nursery has helped this.

Our son has been at the nursery since he was one year old. He leaves at the end of August to start school. We have been happy with the care provided and he has enjoyed his time at nursery. I do think that the nursery would benefit parents evening to give the parents feedback and also help to identify areas of learning that need improvement so that parents can work on these areas at home. Management of this nursery over the last year has been awful. Three different managers and new owners. It makes you question what is going on behind the scenes. Otherwise happy with the service.

Jacqueline Johnson, Managing Director at Sunny Days Private Day Nursery, Ellesmere Port responded to this review on 11 Aug 2015:

Thank you very much for your feedback and comments, we are pleased to hear you have been happy with the care provided. Just Childcare Ltd has only recently taken over the nursery so I can’t comment on anything that happened before we took over. It is unfortunate that there has been a change of management recently but we are confident that the new manager will be great. As a company our policy is to hold parents evenings every 12 weeks and this is in the process of being introduced at the nursery. In addition we are currently in the process of installing a new software system that will have an app and ‘Parent Zone’ where parents will be able to securely see their child’s file and add pictures and comments to it at any-time, this will help further enhance home/nursery links. Thank you again for your feedback and we wish your son all the best with starting school.

This is a great nursery. I started using them when my son was just 6 months old and they made me feel very comfortable with the care he would receive. It is excellent and I would definitely recommend.
