Earlybirds Daycare, Normanton, West Yorkshire

Earlybirds Daycare is located in the Methodist Church School Rooms close to Wakefield Road in Normanton.

The nursery provides spacious, safe and secure facilities for children to learn and develop. The children are given the best chance to explore, experiment and reach their full potential in their early years.

Earlybirds makes sure all children can access outdoor play on a daily basis which gives the children the opportunity to experience the world around them in all types of weather. Communal dining arrangements enable children to socialise with and learn from other children of differing ages.

The nursery provides funded places for qualifying two-year-olds and all three- and four-year-olds and from September 2017 they will be offering 30 hours of funded care (as announced by the Government) to qualifying parents. Demand is expected to be very high so an early enquiry/booking may be advisable as not all nursery schools are expected to offer this service and spaces may become limited.

To qualify for the additional 15 hours per week both parents must be working a minimum of 16 hours per week and joint income must not exceed £100,000 per annum. This applies equally to single parents in a lone parent family.

The nursery also caters for shift workers who require irregular sessions and they offer extended opening hours from 7am until 7pm to support commuting parents.

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Earlybirds Daycare 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Earlybirds Daycare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.825 for Earlybirds Daycare is calculated as follows: ( (230 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 274 Ratings = 4.825

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Earlybirds Daycare is based on 23 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 13.6 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.

This nursery is the best. Friendly staff and happy children. What more do you want? My little boy goes here and loves it. Absolutely loves it! He comes home every Wednesday and tells me what he's been doing. Is your child at this nursery? Why not? Get them in!

As a parent I feel my child is safe and settled here, he attends for two full days a week and always comes home with a smile on his face. I feel Earlybirds share the same morals and views on how a child should be raised as I do and they are a strong team who strive on encouraging children to be the best they possibly can. My son has developed beautifully since attending here especially in his speech and he has some special bonds with certain staff and other children who attend. It puts my mind at rest when I go to work that my child is in safe and positive surroundings.

My second child is now using the nursery after my 8 year old attended from 6 months. The staff are extremely warm, caring and welcoming even at the end of the day. The standard of care given by the staff has always been excellent and the range of activities they carry out in the baby room superb. The feedback on the day's activities is always comprehensive and demonstrates the care and attention they provide to the children. My child loves to attend every day which is probably the best recommendation there is. I have never had cause for complaint or concern and can recommend them highly enough.

I started my son here in September 2014 when he was just 1 years old. The staff were very welcoming and my son settled in very well,he did 2 mornings a week. In January 2016 my son started mainstream nursery at my local school but I still wanted him to come here so he has been getting picked up from school every Friday and going for dinner and play time. In recent weeks I decided to up his hours as he loves it so much so now he stays for longer. The staff are very accommodating and friendly and I can have a laugh with them all and they adore my son and he loves them too. Lots of space and activities to do to keep any age range occupied. They have lovely meals cooked for them and are very good at keeping up to date with the profiles and achievements of my son. The new management are brilliant too, very easy to speak to and I always feel relaxed when going into the nursery and as I say my son is always giddy to go and always has a smile on his face when I pick him up,that speaks volumes.

My daughter has been going here since she was 9 months old. Since the new owners took over I cannot praise this school enough. My daughter is confident, she knows her letters and numbers, she is bright and has lovely manners. This school and all the staff have supported me and my husband in bringing up our little girl. They have catered for all our childcare needs. They have helped her get over her food faddy's. The school is clean, had loads of activities set up every morning and all the staff are kind and friendly. We will be so sad come September when my daughter has to leave for big school.

I am thrilled with the service this nursery provides us especially under the new owners. Our daughter is thriving in their care and learns something new each day. She is excited each morning when we drop her off and loves the staff and children who she spends her days with. I could not recommend this nursery enough.

My son has been attending this nursery for 2 years, he loves it, he really enjoys all the fun and messy creative activities. The staff have taught him how to count and are now teaching him to recognise and write the 1st letter of his name. I am more than happy with his development, he is doing amazing and coming on leaps and bounds. The new preschool room looks fantastic too there is much more space and room to learn.

We have two children at this setting, one in the baby room and one in the nursery school. Our boys are very happy at this nursery, the staff are very kind, caring and hardworking. They seem to genuinely enjoy being with the children and take much pleasure in sharing their achievements. Every time we collect the boys we are informed about what they have been doing and eaten which is normally a lot! The outdoor space is limited but they make the best of it and make sure the children get outside by taking them on local walks and to the park. I have recommended this nursery to friends and feel confident that our children are happy, safe and secure in this setting.

My daughter is 9 months and fairly new to the setting, she has settled in brilliantly with the help and support of the staff in her room. The children are very well cared for and are always doing fun exciting activities. The room is welcoming and inviting and my daughter loves exploring the activities set out. Parents are kept in the know about development through daily sheets and learning journals that are accessible to look through whenever you want. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for high-quality childcare.

A really nice place for kids, the pre-school staff are brilliant and always keep the children busy. Unlike other day care centres around here, the management always finds time to pop out and say hello and ask how we are. The pre-school team are professional and friendly and have taught her so much in the last year. I just wish that she wasn't going to full-time school so she could stay here.

My daughter loved her time here, the toddler/pre-school staff (that's the ones who looked after my daughter) were fantastic and really friendly. She came on leaps and bounds, she learned to read, write and even bake. She loves the staff (as do we), she'd live there if we let her! Excellent place with great staff, Thank you Earlybirds.

My daughter has now left this nursery to go to "big school", and she's really going to miss the staff and their big early morning smiles. The staff have advanced her learning and really brought her out of her shell. A big thank you to you all.

I would 100% recommend Earlybirds to any parent. My two children aged 6 and 4 absolutely love it here. The staff are always coming out with new things to keep them engaged and learning without them even being aware. They go on regular day trips and are always excited to tell us about what they've been up to at the end of the day. It's reassuring knowing our children are happy and safe whilst we go to work.

My son loves going to nursery he has formed a strong bond with his key worker and other staff in the setting. He is now 2 and a half and has been attending Earlybirds since he was 7 months old. He is developing really well and reaching all his targets because the staff challenge him, teach him and encourage him. He doesn't say "i can't" he says "i can"! The staff feedback to me after every session making sure I know how my son has been throughout his session, what he has eaten etc, and what activities he has taken part in. His key worker also regularly updates me on his development shows me his learning journey tells me what next steps he is working on and what I can do to help him achieve these targets. I know that my son is happy, safe, loved and learning while I am at work. So Thank you to all the staff for all you do!!

My twins have attended Earlybirds since November 2014 (just before their 2nd birthday) and although they didn't settle at first the staff were amazing and really persevered.
I have never had any issues with the nursery but must say that since the new owner took over nearly a year ago there has been a lot of improvements.
My daughters love going now and have really learnt a lot. I would recommend Earlybirds to any parent.

Brilliant nursery would recommend to anyone needing a nursery. My daughter started and she wouldn't talk or socialise with other children or other people. She has been going a year and now she doesn't shut up, and it is all down to the staff at early birds. Unfortunately for my little girl now she starts BIG school in September and won't be going back we will both miss the staff at early birds and cannot thank them enough for what the have done for my little one they really are a fantastic nursery!

Fantastic staff, always doing lots with the kids - My lad has been there since he was 9 Months (He's now 19 Months) and he's come on leaps and bounds. The benefit of him being around all the other kids and doing so many different things while there is massive and as he grows, it shows more and more!

We'll definitely be getting his brother or sister in there in the future!

My Son has been attending Earlybirds since April 2016. My eldest daughter also attended previously. I have been so impressed with all the staff that I have dealt with since April 2016. They are professional and approachable and have shown nothing but care towards my Son. He has settled in well and enjoys his time at Nursery. I am so happy for the staff that the recent Ofsted report reflects their care and dedication to all the children. I would highly recommend this Nursery to anyone.

My daughter really enjoys going to Earlybirds, and I feel reassured that she is well cared for and treated appropriately by the staffing team.
The staff at the nursery are welcoming and friendly and are always happy to listen to my concerns, and communicate how my child has been through the day.
My daughter enjoys the school holidays as different daily planned activities keep her busy. She knows she can speak to the staff if she needs help, and I know she is safe while in the care of Earlybirds.
