Reviews

9.9 Glangwili Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.853)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Glangwili Day Nursery 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Glangwili Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.853 for Glangwili Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (136 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.853

  • 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 Glangwili Day Nursery is based on 11 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

The staff are all excellent, as are the facilities. They are caring, professional, helpful and great teachers. Meals are varied and nutritious. I am really happy to leave my daughter in their capable hands every day. The school-run service is fantastic. I cannot recommend them enough. They provide an outstanding all-round service.

Security weakness when other parents let people in on their way out- can be resolved by a lock or keypad on inner door. The staff are friendly and approachable, two or three members of staff are exceptional in going "the extra mile" for parent and child. We as parents always feel welcome and that there is an "open door" policy.
It would be great if more members of staff could have support in learning the Welsh language. Previous nursery did not charge when nursery itself was closed for bank hols etc.

I would highly recommend Glangwili Day Nursery. My son has been in the nursery for nearly 2 years, he loves it and it's a joy to see. The staff are amazing and help me when I'm struggling as I have a heart and lung condition. Total praise to them all.

What a lovely bright open nursery!!!

My 6mth old daughter has recently started at the nursery in preparation for my partners return to work shortly. We have found the staff friendly, attentive and caring.
Our daughter has a food allergy and has begun the weaning process which is a little difficult but I feel that the staff fully understand her requirements and her needs are specifically met.
We have had all our questions and worries answered and have had our minds put at ease that she is safe and happy.
We have all been made to feel welcomed and are looking forward to watching our daughter develop and thrive here.

My child has attended since he was about 18 mths, he is now 9 yrs old. Very happy with the nursery, staff are friendly and the manager is a credit to the team. They do their very best and in my opinion, they are the best in Carmarthen.

Both my children currently attend the nursery, my 3-year-old son since he was 9 months old and my 15-month-old daughter for the last 5 months. They both love it there and both found it very easy to transition into attending the nursery as the staff are so friendly and welcoming. I feel like they know and care for my children so well and I know we (both me and my children) will be sad when they stop attending soon due to us moving house. The staff are always very happy to support us with any extra needs and work with us as much as they can. We have had nothing but a happy experience with the nursery, both myself and my children. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere.

I am so grateful to Glangwili Day Nursery. The wonderful staff helped settle in my little girl from the age of 9 months, and now fast approaching the age of 3 her confidence and overall development has thrived. The staff have been genuinely caring and supportive.
I have confidence every day when dropping my daughter off that she will be well cared for, fed great food, and stimulated with learning and play.

Fantastic nursery, really friendly staff who are always willing to help. I have two children in nursery three days a week and two that get picked up after school. My children love it.
I find the variety of food they have is fantastic.
I would recommend this nursery to everyone looking for childcare in or around Carmarthen town.
The nursery is clean and a vast range of toys for the children. I love having the feedback when picking children up from their day.
I know my children are safe and gives me peace of mind leaving them as I have never used a nursery before September.

My son has been going to Glangwili Day Nursery for just over a year. He loves it there! The girls are so warm and loving towards the kids. He enjoys it so much that he asks every morning if he's going to Nursery and asks about the girls- he's only 2!! When he gets there he just runs in and doesn't even look back ;) I love that the Welsh speakers speak Welsh to him and encourage his learning and development bilingually. I don't know where I'd be without them!! Thank you all x x

The team at Glangwili Day Nursery are excellent. They listen to what I, as a parent, have to say and they're more than accommodating. Every request I have made has been met with compassion and willingness to provide and help, and I have not once met with a negative reaction from any of the staff.

My son has come on leaps and bounds since starting at Glangwili Day Nursery. The staff are emotionally attached to the children and that makes me confident that they provide the best level of care. The level of education is excellent; my son is always coming away with new words or information.

The food provided is always enjoyed, and the staff are excellent with my son's severe allergies. Hygiene rating is 5 - excellent.

The facilities are of excellent standard and the activities on offer are engaging and educational.

But the best thing about Glangwili are the staff - they're always accommodating and genuinely care about my son's future and well being. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more.

Both myself and my son found the nursery to be very warm and welcoming, along with the staff. The staff were also very supportive and ready to accommodate and help with any needs or requests additional to those already provided on a daily basis.
I know my son will miss seeing all the girls as he always seemed happy and content whenever I went to pick him up, as it is with regret that my son will be leaving at the end of January due to personal reasons.

My son has been going to this nursery for nearly a year. The staff are always friendly, approachable, understanding and reassuring. Nothing is too much trouble. I love hearing about his days and they provide an excellent range of foods. Some days my son does not want to come home. He loves it there and that's the most important thing.
