Reviews

10 Nutkins Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.985)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 38 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nutkins Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.985 for Nutkins Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (450 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 456 Ratings = 4.985

  • 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 Nutkins Nursery is based on 17 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

My son went to Nutkins after previously going to an awful nursery that has since closed down. When we went to look round, the staff were very welcoming. After choosing Nutkins my son has settled in brilliantly. He still likes being with all the staff but loves playing with his friends and wants to go to Nutkins at the weekend.
All the staff are very professional and nothing is to much trouble. I cannot recommend them enough. My son starts school in September and we're going to miss our Nutkins family.
All staff are on hand if you have worries or concerns. A massive thank you to all the staff.
The children even do french, science club and yoga.
My son always speaks about group time.

My littleness boy started at Nutkins when he was 6 months old, he's grown and developed so much during his time at the nursery and I feel that the staff are an extended part of our family. Communication from staff is excellent, we are always informed of anything and everything. Our little boy loves going to nursery and even asks to go at the weekend. They've supported his development and whilst they have group time they also work with each child individually on their needs. We're expecting again and this child will also be going to Nutkins as we believe there is no nursery like it.

Nutkins offers an amazing nursery, that goes above and beyond just looking after the children. They offer a family environment, in which each and every child is looked after individually, by staff who are caring and offer a personal and nurturing attitude. Communication is fantastic with parents and there is always an open (and welcoming) door policy if there is anything that you would like to discuss, they cannot do enough for the children to make sure they are happy and secure. The owner and the staff don't just look after the children, they look after the families too, and I have no hesitation ever dropping my children off there. I couldn't recommend enough.

My eldest daughter went to Nutkins from the age of 6 months from 2007 and came on leaps and bounds. The staff then was great. Now I have my youngest son there who has been there over a year. He absolutely loves it. All staff have been great specially with his transition from baby unit to downstairs. Highly recommend this nursery. Thanks so much to all the staff.

Our daughter started in the baby unit at only 6 months old and has attended Nutkins two days per week ever since (she is now 19 months old). The staff are caring, well informed and engaged with the children and their needs. The activities and the foods offered are wide-ranging. Our daughter always seems content when being dropped off and is happily playing when we go to collect her. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.

Both my sons (2 and 4) attend Nutkins Nursery for 2 mornings a week. I don't want to leave the nursery myself sometimes because it is just the most wonderful and magical place and I would love to be able to stay all day :-) The team are professional, caring and a great support to myself as I am also a foster mother. I know that when my children are at nursery they are loved, safe, educated and having fun. When my mother was ill and almost passed away, the nursery worked with me to ensure my boys had a place to go while I was at her side and I will always be eternally grateful. 10 out of 10 in all areas xxx

I would highly recommend Nutkins Nursery. My little boy is 16 months old and has a milk allergy but the chef ensures he gets a wide variety of healthy meals and ensures he doesn't miss out on a birthday cake. The girls that look after my little boy are fantastic. They are constantly helping him discover new things, he has found that he loves painting. 5-star nursery!!

Our little boy started in the baby room in January - despite his sister attending previously we were still naturally anxious as he is only 1 - The senior staff member and the staff in the baby room could not do enough for us making this new chapter much less stressful and emotional. They keep us regularly updated with pictures and reports on what he's been doing and learning. It is very reassuring knowing our little boy is being cared for in such an excellent way in a fabulous setting. Would highly recommend Nutkins nursery.

Absolutely fantastic nursery!! My little girl started at Nutkins in June 2015 when she was just 10months old and she has loved it ever since!
The girls are lovely and are brilliant with the kids.
My little girl has gone from strength to strength since starting here.
They fully support with all aspects of a child's development e.g potty training and I would choose the same nursery if I was to have another child!
Can't recommend enough!!

Nutkins is a fantastic nursery, all my child have attended this nursery my eldest is now 10, my youngest leaves for school this September and we will be very sad to be leaving here. Nutkins have so much to offer your child from French, football, yoga the activities are endless. My little girl is always happy and full of it when she gets home. The staff are all amazing with the children and to see my child run over and hug the teachers before she goes home makes my heart melt. I can't be with her all day every day due to work commitments but I couldn't think of a friendly, nicer environment to leave my child in, I have no problems in given the Manager and her team a glowing reference they have been amazing not only with my children but have supported me throughout the years as well and the littlest things to them have made a massive difference to me and my children.

My eldest did and now my youngest goes to Nutkins. Both thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to going. My dd has come on so much both academically and personally there growing in confidence every day (she's quite shy). The staff are kind honest and truly care about all the children. The key workers assigned to each child go above and beyond for their children they almost feel like part of the family. I feel my children are very lucky to attend nutkins and I am very grateful for all they have done and still do.

Brilliant nursery! We looked at quite a few local childcare options and came across Nutkins quite a few times through word of mouth. We called in off spec one afternoon without prior warning and the staff were more than happy to take the time to show us round and answer any questions. We loved the atmosphere first impressions were great, I knew that our daughter would be well looked after.
Both our daughters have food intolerances and the nursery staff couldn't have done more to ensure dietary needs were met. I can't recommend Nutkins enough to anyone, it's a fantastic nursery with amazing staff.

I have used Nutkins nursery now for nearly 5 years. What a fantastic nursery it is. I honestly can't give one single fault. My daughter started off here and now my son is coming towards the end of his final year before school. I will be very sad to say goodbye. The staff are amazing and I 100% trust them all. The nursery is always fully staffed and the staff are all qualified to high levels (unlike some)
I rate this nursery excellent in every area.

The staff are lovely and very friendly. Always greet you at the door with a smile. Both my boys were born premature and the staff have been extremely supportive and very flexible making a very difficult time a lot easier to manage. My son always has a smile on his face at nursery and enjoys all the different activities.

Nutkins Nursery is very well organised and communication with parents is excellent (via newsletters, noticeboard and face to face). Activities are well organised and a huge variety of activities. Plenty of art work is brought home and updates of her progress. My daughter talks lots about Nursery and often role plays her teacher at home. She has made many friends, also her key worker has made a really strong connection with her. My daughter's development has come on in leaps and bounds since she started.

My child has been at Nutkins since 7 months old and I can honestly say I have not had one cause for concern with the nursery set up or staff. They are all truly amazing carers of children, they stretch and challenge children to enable them to feel special and that they are achieving. My child has made some lovely friends and he always speak very highly of the staff. The food is made fresh everyday and use is made of local produce which is of importance to me as a Mother. The staff will spend time to inform me of what my child has done through the day and also how he is progressing overall. It is a lovely place and if I didn't have to work I would want to go to!!

Definitely the best nursery in Blackpool/Cleveleys. The staff are caring and approachable and my daughter enjoys her nursery days. Lots of space both inside and out for all age groups and the staff go above and beyond to help each individual child. I would highly recommend this Nursery as a first choice to anyone.

I have used this Nursery for the last 7 years, all 3 of my children have attended Nutkins, my eldest is 9 , middle 5 and my youngest who currently still attends is 2.
I would not send my children anywhere else, it is an amazing nursery, every single member of staff genuinely cares about each child as an individual and their families too. I am so comfortable leaving my child in their care.
I looked around many nurseries before deciding this was the one, I knew as soon as I stepped inside. There are so many different areas for your child to decide what they would like to do/play at that time, they are not confined to one space. My daughter loves to take her breakfast outside with her in a morning instead of sitting at snack table, which is no problem at all, whatever makes the child happy.
The staff still ask about my older 2 children now and are eager to hear how they getting on in school. I have recommended many friends who are all grateful that they now too are part of the Nutkins family.
Best Nursery Ever!!

My son has been going to Nutkins for the last 4 months, after moving him from a previous nursery which we weren't happy with. He was made to feel so welcome and safe from day 1, and staff always made sure there was someone with him until he had fully settled in. It seems like a lifetime ago as he is now the most confident happy little boy whilst there, and I have the staff team to thank for that. They have all been amazing, and I feel as though I am dropping him off with family. Wonderful atmosphere and so many different activities for babies/children of all ages. He has made so many friends since being there, and I am always kept up-to-date by the staff, the communication is great. I would highly recommend Nutkins to anyone, and it's the best thing I ever did sending my boy there. Will be such a shame when he has to leave to go to school!

Such an amazing nursery. I feel confident and completely at ease every single day my little boy attends Nutkins, which is 3 1/2 years nearly. Such a loving place. I know my son is loved and cared for by the best there is. Tons of fun, excellent facilities, excellent cook who provides healthy meal and snacks. My little boy is lactose intolerant and this has been completely supported since him being a few months old. Very skilled, loving, happy and patient staff. We are staying on to Nutkins pre school as don't see the point in moving when we are so happy and content here. ?? We love Nutkins and not sure where we would be without them!!!

I recommend this nursery to anyone who is looking for childcare. I have 2 children that attend Nutkins and they both started attending there at the young age of 9 months. I completely trust the staff at Nutkins as if they were my family, and they are all very friendly and approachable. They have the children's best interest always in mind and they provide excellent education. Both my children have had amazing development intellectually and socially whilst being at Nutkins and I thank them so much for helping us help our children grow to be the best they can be. One of my children is ready to leave for primary school and the nursery staff have given him the best start possible. He will miss them all dearly however he is ready and excited, thanks to Nutkins, to start his new school. Thank you to all at Nutkins for such excellent care.

This is a great nursery, my daughter is 2.5 years old and she loves it. So much that she gets all excited when we are approaching it in the car lol. It's clean, there's loads of activities for the kids, the staff are caring and genuinely interested in the well being of the children.

Most importantly my daughter has come on leaps and bounds in her confidence, speech and interaction with other children, Nutkins has undoubtedly played a big part in this.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

My son has been going to Nutkins since 2013 and we have loved every minute of it. I spent lots of time looking at other nurseries in the area and none come even close to the standard we found here.

The staff are friendly and always available for anything you need. The children are always number 1 priority and there is always something for them to learn, make or do. Although the owner is always around and takes a very active role in the running of the place and the well being of the children and their families.

Little details are always remembered and parents often find birthday cards, Christmas gifts and various other things they have made in their school bags (this made Nutkins even more special to us).

The home cooked food is amazing and my son eats a wide variety of food at Nutkins that he would never attempt at home. Also the records of your child's achievements are very well kept and lovely to read at parents evening (plus you get to keep these when they finish).

We try to teach our son a lot at home but the things that he learns at Nutkins really astound us at times and we feel that with their help he is more than ready to take the next step to "big school".

All round I couldn't rate Nutkins high enough and know that our family will miss them immensely when our son starts reception in September.

My son has been attending Nutkins for around 12 months. He was about 14 months when he started going and we were recommended by a number of people. I had looked at a few others nearer to my house as this is not that local but I felt I got a much better feeling from here that it was worth the extra journey time. My son had become very clingy and suffered separation anxiety a lot so I felt he needed to start nursery. I was a little apprehensive to begin with as knew it would be difficult at the start but he settled in well as everyone was so lovely. He has come along leaps and bounds and absolutely loves it, he is so excited when he knows he's going and he has progressed in every way. It has helped him massively and he has learnt so much, every week he comes home knowing new things.

*OUTSTANDING CARE* Both of my children have attended this nursery over the space of 7 years and I really wouldn't use any other. First my daughter attended and now my little boy. He has been coming since he was a baby and is now nearly two. You receive such a home from home feel whenever you are there. The nursery is managed to a high standard. The practitioners are experienced, loving and very knowledgable in what they do, providing high end outstanding care. The practitioners are welcoming and always have new ideas and activities to provide the children with a rich fulfilling learning experience. But most of all they will take care of your child like they were their own, go above and beyond to make your child's day a settled, fun and happy one. I work in Early Years myself and this is one nursery I feel content in leaving my little boy at whilst I go off to work. He adores his nursery and all of the practitioners that make it the best nursery around.

This Nursery is top class in every need. All the children love the activities and the staff are very forthcoming in attending to their needs.
I would not hesitate in recommending this nursery to other parents, the word of mouth that surrounds Nutkins proves the standard of
care taken with all children, and the enjoyment they have in attendance. Opening a second nursery, which has also been a success proves beyond
doubt how popular they have become.
Prior to my son's arrival, we knew this would be the nursery for him, we were thrilled when he was accepted, and we are now, as parents thriving on his
first years of his childhood seeing how much he has progressed - all thanks to Nutkins nursery. Speaking with both past and present parents, you gain the feeling this
is the general feedback. We for one, will be gutted when he leaves for school next year, it almost makes you feel you would like your child to remain there forever !
Thanks to all the staff, I can't single out anyone, as they are a great team.

A very happy parent.

We didn't look at any other nurseries as Nutkins came highly recommended by friends. We could not have wished for a better nursery in terms of the high level of care and understanding to our children's needs.
Our children have felt safe, secure and nurtured by all the wonderful staff and have developed their personalities in a stimulating and enriching environment
Nursery is so important for those first early steps away from mum and dad and teaching them a wide variety of skills to help them transition into school life.
My little boy leaves soon to start school and he has become a confident and caring little boy that has flourished at Nutkins.
My little girl will be with them until 2017.
I only wish there could be a Nutkins school and high school then they never have to leave!

My little boy has been at Nutkins since he was 6 months old. He's 3 in a few months. It's a brilliant nursery and the staff are so lovely and make you feel like part of the family. They go above and beyond for all the children and parents and grandparents. I was so nervous about leaving my little one but they made me feel so comfortable being able to ring up and check on him and he always came home with what he had been doing and eaten etc as he was very fussy. My little boy has some brilliant relationships with the staff here and he has learnt so much through lots of fun ways as a result of going to nursery. I recommend Nutkins to everyone and everyone who asks where my little boy goes and I say Nutkins they always say good things about them. I couldn't fault them. Thank you for doing a great job.

Both my Daughters have attended Nutkins 2 mornings a week from ages 3 and 2. Both girls have loved every minute and have really thrived during their time there.
The staff have all been amazing since day 1 and done everything to welcome the girls and settle them into the environment, and have been fantastic in supporting any additional needs.
Nutkins has helped both girls gain confidence and are great at encouraging the children to explore outside of their comfort zone and reach their full potential.
Could not be happier with my choice and I can't thank them enough for everything they do.

Excellent, caring nursery with friendly well trained staff who care about the children they meet. Plenty of space and different areas for the children to play with. The children are always doing something exciting from science club, drama, meeting reptiles and cooking. They spent time settling in the children at the start allocating key workers by who the child bonded with and not just who had the least children to look after. The assessments files are filled with wonderful keepsakes of what the children got up to whilst they were at nursery. Christmas celebrations at the nearby church are tear jerkers, as are the graduation ceremonies. As a mum of two boys that have attended Nutkins I will miss all of the staff greatly as they are a lovely bunch and I thank them for looking after my children so well whilst I am working. If your looking for a nursery I can't think of any place better.

Since my little boy started at Nutkins he has come on leaps and bounds, he loves going to Nutkins and loves all the staff they are friendly, helpful and are always there to greet my son with a smile. The setting is relaxed and welcoming and I'm extremely happy that I chose Nutkins as my son's nursery.
