The nursery’s team of friendly staff is highly experienced and provides a stimulating and enabling environment to promote children’s learning and development. They work closely with parents to establish the best transition through the nursery rooms for the individual child, waiting until they reach certain developmental phases rather than progressing according to age.

Children at the nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Stage in the activities they participate in, which enables them to learn and absorb effectively in a supportive environment, while also developing softer skills such as communication and relationship building.

Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) also offers out of school clubs, including a before school club, an after school club, and a holiday club, all of which provide children with a fun atmosphere where they can play, draw or complete homework.

Reviews

9.3 Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.300)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.897 for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.897

  • 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 4.403 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Leeds) is based on 5 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.403

  • 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's communication, social interaction, confidence, maturity and general wellbeing has been developed and nurtured continually whilst attending nursery. We recently moved him into a separate programme for pre-schools. The children in this class are the same every day, they know each other, they are allowed to develop their voices and to deepen their understanding and relationships. The activities in this room are pitched at their stage in nursery life and has done more to prepare him for school in September than in a room with children with varying age groups. They have developed his knowledge of phonics so much so he is happy to write a couple of Christmas cards which would have been unheard of 2 months ago. Progress is made and rewarded as applicable.

Sunbeams Austhorpe Leeds Nursery is excellent, the staff are so kind and professional. I have felt very comfortable that my little one is extremely well looked after, safe and his educational development needs are nurtured and encouraged.
We have also just seen the kids do their first nativity play - which was fabulous. I would recommend this nursery to all my friends and family. Thank you Sunbeams Austhorpe, Leeds.

My son has been there since he was one and he is very happy. He started part-time but now is full time. The management and staff are very caring, supportive and understanding. I never worry about my son while he is there. This means a lot as a working mother. At certain times, they have been flexible with me in terms of additional days. I would recommend the nursery to parents with no hesitation.

I can highly recommend Sunbeams nursery, we have used them for the last 3 years to care for my 2 daughters and everyone has been exceptional. The staff really care about my girls and do everything they can to make their days in nursery enjoyable. They took extra care and gave lots of extra cuddles through the early days when they were settling in and now both of them love going. They have both come on really well and the staff are very knowledgeable about how to develop them in specific areas when needed.
The outdoor area is very good and they go outside as much as the weather permits, it's a great location with views of fields and the occasional tractor or herd of cows for entertainment!
Thanks to Sunbeams my eldest is already well prepared to start school next year and looking forward to it (even if I'm not!). We will continue to use the holiday clubs for many years to come as it is a great facility, again run by really caring staff.

Excellent nursery with outstanding service. Trust the long standing staff who are trained at a very high level. Detailed explanations of what a child has/ has not done at end of each day. Very good communication between staff/ parents/ children. Was worried when I moved my daughter from another nursery but she settled in well. When I had concerns that she didn't know her numbers very well, the preschool staff spent time and focused on this straightaway. My son has settled in very well too. The efforts and dedication of the staff definitely show through in the children's development.

My little girl is extremely happy here, she has been going since she was six months old and loves every day there. No matter what mood she is in when I take her, she is all smiles and happiness as soon as she gets in the front door. The staff are exceptional and they have a fantastic balance between learning and playing. I could not recommend them higher.

My little girl has been going since she was six months old. She absolutely loves it and all the staff and no matter what time I drop her off she smiles and gets excited to be there. The staff are fantastic and go out of there way to make you and your child welcome even the ones out of different rooms. It's like a big family and my daughter sees them that way too. I couldn't recommend Sunbeams Austhorpe any higher. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since being there - the classrooms are educational but still fun.

Sunbeams have always been fantastic with my son, he has been going to this nursery since April and has never had any complaints or worries, even back in the days of him crying every morning when I would leave him staff were so lovely and take care of parents as well as your precious babies!
