Reviews

9.8 Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.835)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day 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 42 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 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 4.835 for Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (430 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 503 Ratings = 4.835

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery is based on 27 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 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Nursery. Your comments do really mean a lot to us.

A fantastic nursery with friendly professional staff who care deeply about the children. I feel completely relaxed in the knowledge that the children will be cared for to the highest standard when they are not with me and I would recommend the nursery to everyone.
The staff give the children great opportunities and provide structure and consistency.

Thank you to all the staff for their excellent care they provide.

Thank you to take the time to leave a review and thank you so much for the lovely comments. We love to hear about how parents feel about our Nursery.

My little boy absolutely adores all the girls who work at this nursery even though he only joined them a few months ago as he wasn’t settling in his previous nursery.
He settled straight away and I can tell he's a much happier and more talkative little boy. All the staff at the nursery are lovely especially the member of staff who originally showed us around and made us feel so welcome. They definitely deserve the outstanding OFSTED report!

Thank you for those lovely words, I am so pleased that he is much settled now and that you felt so welcome when we showed you round our nursery.

Ingleby Barwick Day Nursery is absolutely fab! Everyone is so friendly. My son has been attending since he was 10 months old (and he’s 4 next month) and he loves going.
He has made some lovely friends there and he has an excellent relationship with his key person, who is excellent with him.
I think he likes her more than he likes me sometimes! I’ll be so sad when he has to leave, but I feel like he has grown into an amazing little character thanks to the girls at Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery.

Thanks so much!

Thank you for your review, it means a lot to us to hear how you feel about nursery.

My son has attended the nursery for just over a year and it the best decision I have made for my son's development. After removing him from another nursery as he wasn’t developing, since being here he has started speaking more fluently and enjoys going.
He mentions all the teachers and his classmate's names all the time, giving peace of mind he is safe while I’m at work but also liking the time learning and playing.
Definitely a 10 out of 10.

Thank you for your review it's lovely that he is making such fabulous progress.

After an unsettling experience at a different nursery, I was anxious about moving my daughter to another nursery. The staff at Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery were absolutely fantastic in welcoming my daughter, ensuring she settled in extremely quickly. Having been used to collecting my daughter from nursery in tears, it was incredible to see her running around laughing and playing with other children at IBCDN. I couldn't speak more highly of this nursery and the dedicated staff there. A wonderful place for children to learn, play and grow.

Thank you for such a lovely review. It is really important to us that all children are allowed to settle in at their own speed. This helps to ensure that they are comfortable and happy enabling them to enjoy all the experiences on offer throughout the day. This also helps them to make great progress in their learning and development.

Excellent staff attitudes. I feel safe leaving my child in their hands. I am kept up to date with all information and what he has been up to.

My daughter (14 months) has only been with Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery a short time but am so pleased that I chose this one. She was at another nursery but found this nursery does so much more with the children. It's hard making the decision to move your child from one nursery to another but am glad I did. All the staff are friendly and approachable from the moment you walk through the door. Even the staff in the older room will talk and get to know me and my daughter. On her first visit, my daughter felt comfortable with the staff and off she went to play, which makes any mum happy. The environment is very inviting with lots of information, displays and photos of the children doing activities. The baby room has a wide range of resources, she has really enjoyed the stacking blocks and is starting to count with them so went out at the weekend and bought some (which she loved).
Thank You, ladies, so much for everything that you have done so far and glad we made that move!

Thank you for those lovely comments. It's very important to us that we create the right atmosphere here in Nursery to ensure that it feels like home from home and both children and parents feel comfortable and happy. I am really happy that you found us.

As a first time mam I was extremely nervous and anxious putting my baby into nursery at 6 months old but having looked at over 10 nurseries around and not been happy with any of them I was aware of minus five as my nephew had been with them and although a drive away from home I went to view them. From day one the staff made me feel at ease and took to my son straight away they were aware of my anxiousness and on how clingy my son was but with a few start up sessions both me and my son were settled and happy. My son is now one and loves going to nursery he loves the staff and is developing so amazingly. Thanks, guys you're doing a great job.

Thank you for your review. We really do appreciate all your comments. If you have any suggestions for us in areas that we can make improvements please do let us know.

All staff are amazing with my son every time he attends nursery. They constantly encourage development and update me every evening as to what activities he's done that day as well as what he's eaten. Due to working full time I need a nursery where I can trust they will be attentive and help my son learn through play. I can confidently say all staff at Ingleby Barwick Childrens Day Nursery do this on a daily basis. Thank you to all the team xxx

Thank you so much for the lovely comments. I will make sure that I pass them on to the team. It is hard work being a full time working parent so we try our best to make sure that you get lots of information about what the children have been getting up to during the day so that you are always a part of their time at nursery.

My daughter loves spending time after school with staff and other children. She's been attending the nursery for about 18 months and in that time she has always loved attending the setting; plus, she loves telling us all about what she does there. A superb, safe and trustworthy nursery.

Thank you very much for leaving a review for us. Settling children and parents in properly is very important to us so we take time to make sure that we do it right for both parents and the child.

Staff are extremely friendly and really enthusiastic and encouraging towards the children. They have plenty of activities to keep them occupied and learn new skills. They also encourage the children to put things away after themselves to maintain a clean and safe environment for the children play in. I would strongly recommend this nursery.

My son recently started at Ingleby Day Nursery and has settled fantastically. The staff are fabulous with him as well as putting my mind at rest making sure he's ok. I love the variation of his days and the great play and learning facilities. Very happy I chose here as his first nursery and could not be more impressed with the nature of the staff.

Having had a bad experience at another nursery with my son, I was very worried about how he might settle when he started but the staff here have been amazing. I can't fault them, they work so hard yet always cheerful and look after the children as if they were their own. Top notch service, my little boy settled in so fast and loves going.

Thank you for your comments. Helping children and parents to settle into the nursery is very important to us. We know that if we get this bit right, then both the partnerships with our parents will be positive and the children will get the most out of their time in the nursery and making rapid progress whilst enjoying themselves.

Both my children have been looked after at Ingleby Barwick Day Nursery and I am extremely satisfied with the service. The staff are lovely and friendly and I feel confident leaving my children in their care. They come home with lovely stories about what they have been up to and partake in a wide array of activities.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I am really pleased that the children enjoy the activities they take part in whilst they are here. We do take time to follow their interests to ensure that all the children enjoy their time here.

Currently, I am happy with the service provided at the nursery. My daughter is very settled and staff are friendly and approachable. The nursery has developed and improved significantly over the past year, unfortunately, my daughter will soon be at full-time school so will only benefit from these improvements for a limited period of time. Facilities are good and recently activities to engage with parents more, through organised trips etc. have been positive. My daughter has good relationships with the staff and activities and changes brought in by the current manager have been welcomed. Hopefully, the good work to improve the nursery will continue.

Thank you for your lovely comments Dean.

The moment I walked into the nursery with my daughter I was made to feel welcome by the manager and staff. The nursery has a lovely layout, with well-resourced rooms offering a wide range of activities and play experiences. My daughter enjoys her time at nursery and has grown into a very confident little girl. This is down to the caring staff taking the time and care to help her settle and enjoy her time with them.
The nursery provides healthy freshly cooked meals and have actively encouraged my daughter to try new foods. I would definitely recommend Ingleby Barwick Day nursery to anybody looking for childcare and I wholeheartedly agree with the recent Ofsted outstanding rating. I would just like to say a very big thank you to the staff for all your help and support since my daughter started at the nursery.

My son has been going for over a year and he loves the place and the staff. All very friendly and extremely helpful. Been more than accommodating on a few emergency occasions when we've needed him looking after at short notice.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we try to help out where ever we can and we are pleased that this has been useful to you.

This nursery is excellent. My son attends here and is delayed in speech and understanding and was very fussy with his eating and since starting at Ingleby Day Nursery, his progress is incredible!!! He is now eating meals he would never attempt before, he is coming along with his speech and is interacting with the other children. They identify areas he was struggling in which confirmed my concerns and put everything in place for me to get the support for him he needed!
I would recommend this nursery in a heartbeat the staff are by far the best bunch I have come across and my son feels so comfortable approaching them for help. Thank you for everything you have done for us!!!

Thank you for your review of Nursery. It is really important to us that we support all of the children to ensure they make good levels of progress. We work very hard to make sure that each child's individual needs are met quickly and effectively and that families are given the support they need too. It is lovely to see them making such good levels of progress.

Very friendly and clean nursery, my son is very happy here and continues to develop well. Good facilities, staff are always helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this nursery to family and friends.

Thank you for your comments. It is really important to us to get feedback and I am pleased that you would recommend our nursery to your friends and family.

Such a fantastic nursery, we are having to move our son to another nursery kicking and screaming, purely down to the fact it is not close enough to his school for a wrap-around service. He loves everyone at the nursery and always tells us about his friends and the teachers. Since joining the nursery 2 years ago he has come along massively including his talking, sharing, jigsaws, singing.

We have already recommended one other child to the nursery and will do our best to recommend more, also our next child will be joining the nursery as soon as the time comes.

I have been very happy with the progress my 3 year old daughter has made at Ingleby Day Nursery. She was reluctant to go to nursery. She was shy and clingy. The staff have been fantastic at working with her, she now loves to go to nursery and is a different child and has more confidence with adults and children. She has learnt a lot in the 4 months she has been there. I am very impressed with the nursery and the staff. I would recommend it to anyone.

Such a great nursery, lovely staff team. In August 2015 we viewed Ingleby nursery, on our first visit me and my partner and our daughter where made to feel really welcome, manager and staff answered all questions and more, our little girl who was very shy was playing and appeared to be already settling in! I was nervous around how she would be due to her being shy, so this was a big relief for me and had helped me pretty much make my mind up that this nursery was for my little girl to come to.
First impressions of the nursery, was lovely and spacious, clean and tidy.
Now my little girl has been there around 4 months and she loves it, she has come on leaps and bounds, comes home signing new nursery rhymes and learning new colours and numbers. When picking my daughter up I really like the handover of how she has been throughout the day, always full of information of how long she has napped, what she ate for lunch and what fun activities she has done that day, and who her friends have been too!
Also love the tapestry to access my daughters observations assessments and pictures and details of activities she has done! Always look forward to seeing them, to see she's having so much fun and learning is amazing.
Can not fault Ingleby Barwick nursery. Would 100% recommend to anybody.

When my son started nursery, he was very upset. The staff are very friendly and caring. They are very reassuring and receptive to any problems. Now he enjoys it a lot. He comes home with a big smile on the face. There are loads of activities to keep engaged and socialise. They take special care of the activities my son enjoys most. I can view his progress and development of my son regularly through staff updates and tapestry. I definitely recommend it

I would highly recommend this nursery! My oldest daughter attended here from age 2-3 and my youngest has been here for 15 months. All the staff are ALWAYS welcoming with a big smile!! This nursery has brought my little girl on leaps since she first started in Babies. She loves going to nursery and comes home singing all her favourite rhymes and is always happy when I pick her up. I feel I can ask advice from the staff if ever needed, my daughter loves the staff and the new teacher too, always talking about them and asking if they can come to our house! Best nursery I could have put both mine in, cannot fault this place?? X

When my son started nursery he was a very shy little boy who wouldn't interact with anybody, often being very clingy. With him starting nursery next year we decided to get him into preschool to aid his play and speech and also to give him a wider scope of learning. Since he has been at nursery he has totally changed. He always has a smile on his face, loves going to this nursery and playing, his speech is 100% improved, his play ethic has also improved 100%. This is all down to the staff at nursery who are very caring, very helpful, friendly and have taught him a lot. This nursery is unbelievable, I cannot thank them enough for my son's progress.

I am so pleased that my youngest daughter has settled well at Ingleby Barwick Children's Day Nursery. I feel happy and confident that she will enjoy her day in the care of knowledgeable and supportive staff. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and have been very attentive, finding out what my daughter likes to do so that they can provide similar activities for her during the day. I love her online learning journey, it's great that I can get to see pictures of the things she's doing during the day. I would highly recommend this nursery I couldn't be happier with our choice.

My eldest son attended this nursery for almost 3 years, so when it came to choosing a nursery for my youngest son I did not hesitate in sending him to Ingleby Barwick children's day nursery. He has been attending for the last two years and like my eldest son, thoroughly enjoys going to nursery. It was so lovely to know that the people who had looked after my eldest son, were now going to take care of my youngest. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and are very well experienced in childcare and are also happy to give advice on any concerns you may have. They always have a lovely welcome for my little boy and know that he likes his cuddles when he first arrives to help him settle. I can be confident that when I leave him that, not only will he be well looked after, but that he will also have had a variety of stimulating activities to take part in, along with socialising with other little ones his own age. My little boy has positively thrived from attending nursery and this is apparent in his speech, his social skills and his fine motor skills development. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to other parents.

My children attend breakfast club and holiday club at the nursery and are always happy to go. The staff make them feel welcome and involve them in everything that is happening. My son has attended since he was a baby and has built strong bonds with the staff especially his key worker. Both of my children enjoy being taken to school by the staff and always manages to make them laugh.

My children attend the nursery on an as and when needed basis and are always made to feel welcome by all the staff. They particularly enjoy attending breakfast club and being taken to school by the staff. When they attend in the school holidays they are always included in all the activities that are going on and enjoy helping the staff with jobs that are a part of the nursery routine.

I put my child in this nursery for 3 years and I was so happy to leave him with the fully qualified friendly staff!
The place always clean and tidy and friendly faces of staff and other parents, was always reassuring when leaving my baby boy!
One member of staff in particular was amazing with him! She was his key worker and his friend when he wouldn't settle! He took to her so well and he talked highly of the fun activities they had each day together!
I would recommend this nursery to anyone who had a small child ! Thank you for giving me the peace of mind that when I went off to work my child was in super safe hands xx

My youngest daughter has been settling at nursery this week and I have been thrilled with how it has gone. After not settling at all at another nursery I was anxious about how successful our second attempt would be. The staff were fantastic and extremely reassuring and gently guided and supported my daughter as she explored which helped to start building her relationship with her key person. The activities and resources that are available are really engaging I don't think my daughter actually had time to miss me too much!! I love the online learning journey called tapestry, I can log in to add things about what my child has been doing with her family along with photographs and short video. I also get a notification when her key person logs something new that she has achieved.... It's fab!! All in all I'm extremely pleased with Ingleby Barwick Children's Day Nursery and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends and family.

My son started at the nursery a few weeks ago and he was getting a little upset when I would leave him, but the staff made it easier for me leave by distracting my son and playing with him, I was always assured he was ok throughout the day.
The nursery is very flexible and this really helps with me and dad both working different jobs at different times.
As a parent you are always very wary of leaving your children with someone you don't really know, but the staff here are lovely and made this a lot easier.

My son is currently in the under two's room and the staff there have made him feel very welcomed since his first day. I can leave him in there care knowing he is well cared for, safe and stimulated. The staff that care for the older children are always great with us and warmly take the time to chat too.
The nursery has been very flexible with the days and sessions he attends and this has been very helpful.
I would recommend this nursery to everyone.
