The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for The Garden House 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 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Garden House Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.939 for The Garden House Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (294 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 311 Ratings = 4.939

    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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Garden House Nursery is based on 15 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). 15 Reviews ÷ 13.4 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.

Both my boys have attended The Garden House nursery from the ages of 12 months until they leave at 4yrs. Both have had fantastic journeys at the nursery making new friends and learning new skills. The team of staff are so helpful and understanding that sometimes all your child wants is a cuddle.
The range of activities offered and the experiences they have had have been fantastic.
My youngest is just about to finish at the nursery and I have to say I think I am the one who is going to miss seeing the friendly welcoming smiles of all the staff.
A fantastic nursery I would recommend to anyone.

My son has been going to The Garden House for 4 months now and I can honestly say it has gone far beyond my expectations.
Right from the start, the staff have been warm, welcoming, helpful and friendly. My son has never (long may it continue) cried during drop off and been just as happy every evening when I've picked him up
I can't believe how much he has come in 4 months. They know him so well already and are always helping him to learn new things and develop new skills.
Thank you to everyone for the happiest start to nursery life that I could have hoped for.

Our daughter started attending this nursery on 4th July 2017 and we have been really impressed from day one with the high standards of the provision. The sessions are well structured, interesting and challenging the kids. There are well-structured activities throughout the day (even when I pick my daughter up at 6 pm) The nursery is very clean, tidy and well maintained. The staff always look happy and you can tell they love the place and the kids. Our girl loves going there and we are really happy that finally, we found a nursery that is a home away from home for her.

My son had been attending The Garden House Nursery before he started school last September. My daughter has been at the nursery since she was a little toddler and is spending her last few weeks there before starting school. I strongly feel that the nursery has provided an excellent environment for them to play at and to learn. They both made good progress in reading and maths at the nursery. The most important thing to a working parent, to me, is that I could see all the nursery staff are very passionate about what they do. They have an enormous amount of patience and care to the children. My children really enjoyed their time at the nursery and I am grateful to the teachers.

This is my second child to attend the nursery and the standard of care is still as high. My child is happy and well-settled thanks to the staff. She comes home with more knowledge every day. Whilst at nursery, she loves to spend time in the varied outdoor spaces, which have given her confidence in her developing physical skills. He bonds with the staff and children are excellent. I couldn't have chosen a better nursery for my children.

The Garden House Nursery is a very welcoming and friendly nursery, sadly my child will be leaving in September to go to school. However, I could not have wished for a better start in life for him. We chose The Garden House 4 years ago now and knew it was the perfect nursery for our son to begin his adventures. Here he has learnt to count to 100, write his name (as well as his friends and ours), he has made some great friendships both with the children and the excellent staff and he has learnt Spanish and French in the weekly language clubs. He has really enjoyed the tennis sessions at the nursery and is wanting to continue doing this at school. This nursery was by far one of the best nurseries we looked at when we were looking around for the perfect location for our child. We would like to thank all the team at The Garden House for all their support and helping our son become the clever, friendly boy he is today.

The Garden House is a very structured, friendly and caring nursery. All of the staff have a genuine interest in each child. Love and affection is given to the children, there is no shortage of cuddles and it is a safe and homely environment. Educational standards are excellent and the transition from baby to school ready is well handled and organised. Our child has been very happy for three years making great friends with children and staff, learning Spanish and Tennis and becoming a confident polite and happy young bot in the process. We have never had any doubts this was the right nursery for us. (Only criticism is you have to provide your own lunch and dinner)

Louise Hope, owner/director at The Garden House Nursery responded to this review on 22 Mar 2017:

We very much appreciate your kind review and note your comments re the provision of meals. We just wanted to reassure you and others that, where parents specifically request us to provide lunch and/or tea, we are more than happy to do so at cost price and certainly have done so. Please feel free to discuss this with us at any time.

I have three children of 11, 5 and 2 and they have all attended the Garden House Nursey. My 2 year old is still there. I cannot speak highly enough of this nursery. In my opinion, it's the best nursery in Sheffield - a happy, caring and safe environment for babies and older ones. All aspects of the nursery are run with a high degree of professionalism and care. One of my favourite aspects of the Garden House is that staff turnover is minimal which means that many of the nursery nurses who cared for my now 11 year old are also caring for my 2 year old! On entering the nursery, you will never fail to be greeted by a friendly smile and hello to both you and your child. The baby/child's happiness and welfare is paramount and staff are always available to discuss any concerns and there to cuddle any little person who has woken up on the wrong side of the bed! I would recommend it to any family wanting to be 100% sure that they are leaving their children in caring, happy and safe hands.

Both my children (3.5 yr old and 18 month old) have attended here since they were 12 months. The staff and atmosphere are warm and inviting, with many long term staff. I have always felt comfortable leaving my children here. My 3.5-year-old is in the oldest room and his letters and numbers have really come on here, as well as plenty of fun activities. The only downside for me is they don't provide lunch and tea - you have to take your own. However, this isn't a big issue compared to how happy we are overall with the nursery. We also enjoy getting a daily email for each child telling us what they've been up to every day - I thought all nurseries did this but apparently not. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to my friends.

Louise Hope, Owner/Director at The Garden House Nursery responded to this review on 06 Mar 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind review, but we just wanted to clarify the meals situation. When lunch or tea has been specifically requested by a parent we have happily provided these at cost and continue to do so. Our only concern is the poor quality of those meals bought in by nurseries or the lack of variety when all are cooked in house for this young age group. We are always happy to discuss the options with parents and we do provide a healthy breakfast and variety of substantial and healthy snacks within our normal session price.

Finding the right nursery is a big deal for any parent, but from the very first visit toThe Garden House Nursery we were able to put our worries aside. The quality and competency of all who work there is apparent from the offset and it is clear that all aspects of our son's care - from the educational to safety and security - had been well thought out and implemented.

However, what really sets The Garden House apart is their amazing and caring staff (of whom I cannot speak highly enough), and the way they've handled the additional reassurance and special needs our son requires. When our son first started and was extremely attached to one particular carer, she extended her hours so she could stay with him and reassure him until he was more settled. They are always proactive in initiating strategies to help meet our son's needs and also very quick to implement those suggested by other authorities. In short, they are fantastic and I would whole-heartedly recommend them to any parent.

My daughter has attended for the last 15 months and thoroughly enjoys it. The staff are friendly and kind, and genuinely show care and affection for the kids. My daughter always gets a cuddle when she arrives. She struggled to settle at first because she'd never been cared for by anyone else, and is very shy. The staff were brilliant at showing her care and support while she made the transition, and she always ended up having a great day. Going back to work and leaving my one year old daughter was hard, but their approach made it so much easier, and now she always arrives happy and excited. The activities are always varied and fun. The management team are really helpful and supportive too, and a pleasure to deal with. We're leaving next month, and I'm really sad to be going. We're only leaving because the nursery has recently become difficult to travel to. I wish we could stay! Garden House may work out more expensive than other nurseries, but you get what you pay for.

My eldest was at the Garden House 2012-15 and my youngest will be leaving for school next year. We have been extremely happy with this nursery and will be sad when the staff there are no longer part of our lives. Both children have always been happy there and we've always felt comfortable leaving them, knowing that they'd be looked after properly and would have a fun day.

A lovely, caring nursery with a family atmosphere. Staff are approachable, friendly & professional. They have developed good relationships with our child and looked after him well. He's two now and still loves arriving to a cuddle every morning.

The rooms are stimulating with changing topics and high standards of cleanliness.

This is a great nursery with excellent staff and management. It is the safest place a child can be. You can concentrate on your work while the child is there without being concerned about their health and happiness. Children settle in really well. Children are very comfortable.
They can have breakfast at nursery if they don't have it at home. You can actually see that the staff try hard to do what they can to make sure children are looked after. If they don't do something, that means there was not any possible solution to the problem and this is very valuable.

In terms of the quality of child care this is an excellent nursery. There is a palpable feeling that the staff are personally invested in the welfare and development of the children and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services.

Because they are so good they are very popular and often quite full, consequently - sometimes it is difficult to change sessions, but if there was a failing to have, in exchange for excellent child care - well that's fine!

We have used the Garden House Nursery on Crimicar Lane from 2010 - 2016 for both of our children.
We believe the care and dedication and attention shown to our children has been exceptional and very reassuring at all times. Both our children have loved attending the nursery and have developed a real love of playing, inter-acting, learning and making friends. Many of their friendships from nursery have been solid and will continue with them through to school.
The staff are always professional and caring. All requests in relation to our children's individual needs/care have always been accommodated and all staff work hard to provide a brilliant environment for the children. The 'behind the scenes' management and organisation of the Nursery is always good.
The indoor and outdoor space is very welcoming and there are lots of resources for the children.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Garden House Nursery to all parents.

My little boy is 3 years old and has been at The Garden House Nursery for 2 years and 3 months. During this time here he has progressed in all areas and is now coming home able to write his name, mummy, nanny as well as writing numbers 1-10. This fills me with confidence that he is enjoying his time here as well as learning new things each day. The staff are always welcoming and my child has great relationships with them all. Thank you to all at The Garden House Nursery.

I cannot recommend The Garden House Nursery enough. As a working Mum, it is so important to know that your child/children are safe, happy, learning and having fun. The staff at the nursery work tirelessly to ensure that this happens.
I feel very well informed of my children's progress; alongside daily emails regarding their day in nursery, we also receive verbal information which is always lovely to hear.
Working in education, I have worked in and visited many schools/childcare establishments and I can honestly say, I have never known such a happy, hardworking team of people. The staffs enthusiasm and high spirit comes through in my own children's happiness and progress and for this, both my husband and I are hugely grateful.
The Garden House is a hugely professional establishment where safeguarding is of paramount importance.
Our children could not have a better start on their journeys as lifelong learners and we recommend the nursery unreservedly.

The Garden House Nursery School has the most friendly and welcoming environment, you couldn't ask for more. My grandchildren continue to enjoy their time there, learning and developing rapidly. The staff team are caring, having a genuine interest in all the children and how best to meet their needs. My grandchildren are both very different and I see the enthusiasm they both have when going to nursery. I can only hope that their enthusiasm for learning continues throughout school and their future teachers take that approach that the staff at The Garden House consistently apply. Ofsted say 'Outstanding' and we (my grandchildren and I) agree.

I am extremely impressed by the attitude of staff and their willingness to care for children and take an interest in what my child has done throughout the nursery day. My child has really developed since being at The Garden House and has progressed quite rapidly since moving up to Piglets. The activities and learning that The Garden House provides is so varied and ahead of other nurseries, tennis coaching, outdoor herb garden.

I have two children currently at the Garden House, and I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Since day one my children have been excited to go into nursery and are always greeted by a friendly member of staff. All the staff are tentative and go beyond just childminding, they ensure each child is engaged in nursery life and that any needs are met. All the staff know the children throughout the nursery and both children have a strong attachment to the staff.
The progression I see in my children's social and physical development is, I'm sure, accelerated through the activities at nursery. The provide a wide array of activities to target different development points which are age appropriate in each room.
The facilities are great with plenty of space for outdoor learning through nature trails and exploration.
The most important thing for me is my children's happiness and there hasn't been a day that either have not been excited to go to nursery to see the staff and their friends.

My oldest boy attended from 2012-2014 and my youngest is currently in his second year at the Garden House. It is a caring and nurturing environment and both my boys have thrived there. My wife and I both feel that our children are simply not being watched or occupied - they are being genuinely cared for and stimulated. They staff are lovely and frequently go above and beyond - one staff member even took my wife to A&E when she injured herself on the way to nursery! The email based feedback system, which gives a detailed report on your child's day, is also a great new innovation. When our youngest finishes at the Garden House we will deeply miss both the place and the people who make it such a special nursery.

A wonderful nursery. My son has been attending since about 10 months old and is now nearly 3. The daily activities are stimulating and fun as well as being educational and my son is thriving here. He always has a smile on his face when I collect him and he enjoys telling me what he has been doing that day. We have even had tears on the way home as he wanted to stay at nursery! I would highly recommend this nursery.

The recommendation I received when my daughter was months old was too beautifully simple for me to appreciate at the time: ‘the children are always happy’ I was told. Three years on, with my daughter weeks from starting at Infant School, I struggle to improve on that observation.
It can’t just be the cheerful greeting that awaits morning and evening, nor the seemingly parental understanding of your child. It cannot merely be the calm control that is so evident in every room, nor the real concern when my daughter is not herself.
Perhaps I can only add to that observation. This is a nursery that has an atmosphere as close to a home as is possible: where children are encouraged to grow and develop, in a caring yet disciplined environment. It is a nursery where I am happy to leave my child; it is a nursery I trust; it is most certainly a nursery I cannot recommend enough.

My daughter who is going to be 5 in September and will be starting school absolutely loves this nursery and so do I . From the first day she started she has really come on in leaps and bounds , she never stops talking about what they do and as soon as you step through the door it has a nice welcoming feel and atmosphere , the staff are brilliant and have took amazing care of my daughter when she has been feeling down or under the weather, I would 100% reccommend this nursery.
