The Review Score of 4.9 (maximum of 10) for High Trees Nursery, Boston Spa 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for High Trees Nursery, Boston Spa 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 4.875 for High Trees Nursery, Boston Spa is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 High Trees Nursery, Boston Spa is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 16.8 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.

Our daughter is thriving at High Trees. The staff really get to know your child and build relationships quickly. The room is well-equipped and our daughter loves the varied activities (including feeding the goats and playing in the soft play room). Meals are varied, and healthy. The grounds really sell the place – unrivalled grounds! We are very happy and would recommend High Trees to anybody. This nursery places your child’s development at the very heart of everything they do and prepared them for primary school very well. Progress tracking and development is well documented, too. This is a fun, happy nursery!

We are relatively new to High Trees, our daughter joined when she was 1. We looked at several local nurseries and High Trees is by far the best in my opinion. Working in Primary School, I know what level they need to get to in order to start Reception and High Trees prepares them for that without doubt. The meals are varied and healthy, the staff are warm and loving and my daughter really enjoys her time at nursery. Communication is excellent - from the day book to the prompt email replies to any questions. Twitter also has lots of photographs and newsletters. I feel involved in her nursery and I know that they genuinely are about my daughter. I would recommend High Trees to anybody. The extensive grounds are stunning and children learn best through free play and gently encouragement which is exactly what High Trees is all about. 10/10 from me!

My child has attended since Jan 2013 and the staff have been amazing right from day 1. The outside space is great too and each area is aimed at different ages. Annual sports day and goats are a bonus.

I currently have two children who attend High Trees Nursery. After moving house, my eldest child moved to High Trees and it wasn't until seeing how settled he was at High Trees that I realised how unsettled he was at his previous nursery. I feel this is all credit to the warm, nurturing, caring and friendly environment and staff who seem so committed and passionate about their work with children. I have come to realise the two things most important to me as a mother and the care of my children, ultimately, is that they are safe and happy; and it is evident from how happy, confident and interested in the world around them both my children are at High Trees, that their emotional, social and cognitive/developmental needs are all being fulfilled to the highest of standards. High Trees boasts very unique and large outdoor areas which my children both love... my sons especially enjoy visiting and feeding the resident goats! I have always found High Trees to be very accommodating of any changes in relation to days and sessions that my children attend. Regular parents' evenings and newsletters mean that as a parent I've always been kept informed about my children's' progress and up and coming events, news and changes happening within the nursery.

My son has been attending High Trees for 4 months now and is 14 months. He is so happy there, the staff are so caring and he particularly loves his key workers. I have been very impressed by the professionalism and dedication of the whole team. He is a very active, happy boy and they make sure he has plenty of fun activities to do, friends to play with and educational activities plus Hightrees has the bonus of so much outdoor play space. He has developmed so well there - and as both parents work long hours, it is great to know that even though we are not with him all the time, when he is at nursery I know is happy, content, eating nice healthy food and most of all having fun!

My daughter spent just over two years at High Trees and I cannot recommend it enough. They were brilliant at getting her settled in, she took quite a while to get used to things and let her get involved at her own pace. The staff are absolutely brilliant with the kids, so warm and caring. It was hard leaving my daughter there while she was crying but I knew she was in good hands. We have moved away now but I would definitely be sending my little boy there when the time comes if we would havestill been near. They have amazing outdoor space too, lots of fields, playgrounds etc. and are out there as often as possible. If in doubt, go for a visit and you will feel the warmth around the place - it's great! They do a wide variety of activities and serve a good range of food too.
