Reviews

9.3 Nazareth House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.304)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Nazareth House Day Nursery 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nazareth House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 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 4.856 for Nazareth House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (186 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.856

  • 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 4.448 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nazareth House Day Nursery is based on 6 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.448

  • 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 started Nazareth House in January 2017. This was her first time at nursery and I was a little apprehensive at what to expect. I can honestly say she is doing really well. I have found all the staff to be very helpful and caring. This nursery was recommended to me by various people and I'm glad I decided to go with this one. The outside areas are also fantastic my little girl loves playing outside. So far so good.

I have had children at Nazareth House nursery for 7 years and right from the first day I have been very happy with the care my children have received from being 9 months to 4 years. The staff are welcoming, caring and very approachable. They treat each child as an individual. The nursery environment is second to none and the staff make good use of it. There is a great outdoor area, including a field and woods and the children have all loved to go exploring. Even the babies are taken on regular walks to see the ducks at the duck pond. As the children get older, there is good input on learning numbers and letters and I am kept fully informed of their progress through the Early Years log. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nazareth House to other parents and do so frequently!

Safety and happiness of the children are paramount. My children have loved it and I am reassured every day my children are safe and happy in their care.
Education and learning is such fun and appropriate for the relevant ages. The meals are fantastic and my children have always enjoyed the variety of food they are given. Outdoor and indoor space and activities are fantastic and well managed. A wonderful nursery in every way.

In my opinion, this is the best nursery in Lancaster. All three of my children have attended this nursery from 6 months onwards. Two are now at school and one still attends. The staff are extremely caring, supportive and nurturing and I have always felt content saying bye to my children. The management team are brilliant and very accommodating - in comparison to the nurseries my nieces and nephews attend - Nazareth House is a blessing. They provide fresh home cooked food and cater for specific dietary requirements.

I've had 3 children attend Nazareth House and have always been extremely satisfied in the care they have received. My daughter who attends now has the same Key person looking after her as my daughter did 10 years ago! The staff seem happy and caring which makes it a lovely relaxing environment.

We have had experience of several nurseries over the years and this one is by far the best. The staff are attentive, it feels like a very safe environment for our daughter and she is content at nursery.
The information provided as to what the children do each day (Food, sleeps, toilets, activities) is great and it has improved since our other children attended the nursery with the use of the eyLog app.

Staff are always friendly and welcoming and know the name of my child. It seems well organised and well managed. Staff seem to enjoy their work. Great facilities for playing outside and exploring nature. The electronic notification system is brilliant keeping you in touch with your child during the day and being able to look at the log with my child when they come home.

Our son is 9 months and has been attending Nazareth House for 3 months - during his time he has developed brilliantly and we notice a marked change in him after his time at the nursery. The staff have been consistently great and the online reporting system works very well, giving a real insight into our sons time is spent at nursery.
I would highly recommend Nazareth House to any parent.

I have used the nursery for over 6 years for both of my children. The nursery is organised, clean and my children enjoyed the facilities and food. The nursery nurses are all approachable and friendly, a home from home nursery. The grounds are lovely and peaceful for woodland trails, teddy bear picnics, sponsored walks and my children loved baking and crafts. I will be sad when my youngest leaves for school next year.

Committed to providing a safe, caring & homely environment for the children within their care. Two of my children attend and arrive and leave nursery every day extremely happy. The Manager & staff are always friendly and you get a real sense that every member of staff genuinely loves their job and the children they care for. My youngest daughter has just turned one and recently joined the nursery, I had absolutely no qualms in leaving her there with such well qualified/ experienced staff. Having a key worker system ensures that your child is looked at as an individual, their needs are met to ensure they are stimulated in a way that encourages their confidence and self esteem. The eyelog system means that you get daily updates on your child's activities whilst you are at work. The setting is fantastic, lots of outdoor space to explore. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery and have done so to many.

I have 2 children who have attended this Nursery. I cannot fault it. The Manager and staff are always happy to discuss any query or concern. They listen to parents feedback and act on recommendations and suggestions. An example is when we suggested allocating a few car parking spaces at the front for drop off only. Very quickly this was put in place and now no staff or visitors park at the front entrance.

They have a fabulous setting, it's always changing and improving. there outdoor wooded area is brilliant for the children to explore and learn.

Every member of staff genuinely loves the children. They are just brilliant and I fell it is a really safe place to leave my children, with well qualified and experienced staff.
The eylog provided updates that I can see on my laptop or on my phone. I can see pictures. I know what my son has had to eat, what and who he has played with and his toileting.

Overall its brilliant.
