Reviews

4.8 Hey Days Nursery has a Review Score of 4.8 (4.838)

The Review Score of 4.8 (maximum of 10) for Hey Days Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hey Days Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.838 for Hey Days Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (182 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.838

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hey Days Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0

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

Fantastic professional staff who go above and beyond for you and your child. The facilities are excellent and it is always clean and well looked after. My daughter loves going to nursery every week and I could not ask for a better place to send my child too. They have specific key workers with each child and that works very well.

Hey Days is a wonderful nursery and my son loves the time he spends there. The outdoor space, including a nature garden, is great, especially during the summer months. We have been impressed with the communication we receive from the nursery - detailed daily report sheets, yearly reports and parents evenings. Contact with his key worker and the other staff in his room is excellent.

My daughter moved to Hey Days after a bad experience at another setting. She was low on confidence, quiet and shy.

The staff at Hey Days have worked wonders. She settled in very quickly, any issues she had they talked to us about and we put plans in place together. They've been supportive, not just of my daughter but of us too. It's been a real partnership to help her blossom.

In the time she's been there she's learnt so much, had so much confidence and it's so happy it really is wonderful - and that's spilled into every area of her life.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

My baby daughter has been attending Hey Days for approximately 4 months now and I confirm the nursery to be particularly good. Staff are friendly and professional and provide the care expected for a baby. My daughter has a key staff member assigned to her which is very reassuring as being so young it is important for her to have familiarity and the feeling of security and continuity. Although there are some elements of the following scoring options that we have not come across yet, I would recommend Hey Days Nursery to anyone. Very Good.

Our daughter has attended Hey Days for the last 14 months and over this time has developed into an incredibly happy, chatty and confident little girl. At home time she is always full of stories of the exciting things she's been up to that day, and is genuinely disappointed if it's not a 'nursery day' when she wakes up!
She has a great bond with many of the staff and their care and attention to detail is so reassuring. We feel lucky to have found such superb childcare, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hey Days to others.

Hey Days is a lovely nursery. I have used them for my 2 sons since 2009. Nearly 3 year old still attends today. The setting is lovely and is constantly growing and improving, the nature garden is a wonderful place. The best quality of heydays is the staff, they have always been happy, friendly, welcoming and very approachable. My boys have always been happy at Hey Days and it will be a sad day to say goodbye when I will no longer need their services.
I would and have recommended Hey Days to friends.

Our daughter has been attending the nursery for over a year, every member of staff has been extremely welcoming and supportive towards her development.

All staff members communicate clearly and keep us informed of the day to day activities. We receive weekly updates and monthly new letters via email.

They hold parents evening and have kept us updated of our daughters progression throughout the last year.

Our daughter has just moved into the toddler room, we were given an opportunity to read through her progression diary which was lovely to see.

I cannot fault the nursery in any shape or form. They have a huge focus on the outdoors which my daughter loves, the adventure garden and all facilities are fantastic.

Our twins have attended this nursery from a very young age. All of our worries as parents were soon settled by the knowledge and care that the nursery provided. I would recommend to anyone! Staff are always available to discuss your child's progress and are full of encouragement!

My little boy is just coming up to 2 and has been attending Hey Days for almost a year. Right from my initial contact with the management I have been impressed. The genuine willingness to understand the care my son required was lovely. I have no concerns leaving him with his key worker - his eyes light up when he sees her and it is clear how much he enjoys nursery and the interaction with other children and staff. The variation of activities taking place every day is great and the service is reliable, flexible and a year on just as personal as it was at the start. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other parents.

My son (1yr 3months) has been attending Hey Days for 5 months now, once a week and I would not have him any where else! The staff were all so eager to welcome my son to the nursery and he has learnt so much, he's coming home every week with a new noise or sometimes a new word. He has a close bond with his first and secondary key person who are both fantastic, (as are all the staff) I can't complain, they make it easier to leave him when I go to work because I know he is safe and even if he cries as I leave I know it's only for a few seconds as they take him straight over to occupy him while I sneak away. All the staff at Hey Days are always willing to help when needed and are quick to answer any questions via email or phone. I can't say anything at all against this nursery since I am so happy. If my son is happy I'm happier and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that my son seems very settled and happy here. Thank you

Hey Days has had two of my children and both of them have loved every second. The time and effort put into the children from the staff is unbelievable and outstanding. My shy little guy left for reception last year eager and ready. He has since received many awards from the head teacher at his school and has been observed having excellent writing skills, although I did help a little at home, I put the majority of his skill down to the activities he took part in at the nursery. My youngest has just started after Easter and has enjoyed it so much that on her days off she still gets ready for nursery and cries when I deliver the news that it's not a nursery day. She is being patient over the 6 week holidays but she still talks about her key worker everyday and is ready for September. As a parent I have to mention how well the nursery keeps in touch with parents and let's us know about ongoing activities and any up coming changes. The food served to the children is well balanced and healthy. The staff are always happy and helpful.

My little boy has attended this Nursery since he was 8 months old and he absolutely loves it here. All the staff are kind and helpful and the communication with his key worker has been absolutely amazing - I get to find out absolutely everything he has done during the day (and it is impressive how much they manage to squeeze in - no wonder he is so tired when he comes home!) I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough, and I wouldn't send my little boy anywhere else!

I accompanied my daughter on visits to lots of nurseries. Hey Days was by far the best nursery for my granddaughter. During the visit the children were so sociable, smiley and engaging.

My granddaughter absolutely loves going and can't wait to meet her friends.

Outstanding nursery. My daughter adores coming here, so much so we've kept her attending her two days despite my being on maternity leave with our second daughter.

Our daughter has developed tenfold since coming, all the staff are fabulous & she is welcomed every morning by all that see her something so small but has a huge impact makes her feel safe, settled & welcomed.

I can not recommend Hey Days Nursery enough!!!
