Reviews

9.9 DVLA Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.870)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for DVLA 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 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for DVLA Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 39 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 4.87 for DVLA Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (419 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 478 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 DVLA Day Nursery is based on 39 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 24.2 positive Reviews (121 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 39 Reviews ÷ 24.2 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.

We are extremely happy with DVLA Day Nursery and most happy with the staff who are amazing. The contracts are a bit confusing (shift/flexi ext) but all in all brilliant!

My daughter attended this nursery until she reached school age and my son still attends (and started when he 3 months old). Over the years they have maintained the highest standards of childcare and have good facilities with plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. The staff are so friendly and take the time to talk to you about what the kids have been up to that day. I love it when they have arts and crafts to bring home, such as Christmas decorations and Easter crafts. They spend the time to go above and beyond what you would normally expect from a childcare provider and even put on a Christmas concert for over 2's (which I believe most other nurseries don't do). I would highly recommend DVLA nursery and can't thank them enough for the support and development my children have received over the past few years.

My son has attended this nursery for almost 4 years now and I would not have kept him in there for as long if the nursery was not as good as it is. It is run very professionally and efficiently which makes me feel very safe about leaving my child there. They do so many activities for the children there and the garden is great for the kids to play in. They also have to be commended for the food as it is very healthy and varied. The best thing about the nursery for me as a parent is the staff. They are extremely professional, kind, caring and helpful especially over the last couple of years where things have been tough for my son and I. I would particularly like to express my gratitude the staff in the office and the staff in pre-school, these ladies are wonderful!

Both my sons attend the DVLA nursery and I have always been happy with the care they receive. I don't worry about leaving the boys in their care and I know any information/instructions I leave are followed or taken on board.
My eldest son attends the playscheme and was upset when I didn't book him in - I think that shows how much he enjoys there.

I cannot thank the staff at DVLA Day Nursery for all their hard work in settling my little boy into crèche, it's amazing to see how far he has come in his time with you and it puts my mind at ease knowing he is in a safe and friendly environment. The staff really do go above and beyond for the children and in helping parents to calm down, thank you.

They are informative about my daughter's day providing a written daily report. As a mother, I feel they genuinely care for my daughter and in my absence will do exactly what I would have done. I have great confidence in their ability. Excellent friendly, approachable staff. I highly recommend to anyone looking for childcare.

I would definitely recommend the DVLA Nursery because both my boys enjoy going there. It's clean/spotless, safe, it provides nutritional meals and the friendly staff are dedicated to doing an outstanding service. There is plenty of space to play inside and outside. It’s managed very well. My eldest son who is now in primary schooling has learnt to be sociable, irrespective of himself suffering from Autism. He is a good mixer and has learnt the art in confirming within his peers. Being an LSA myself, my eldest has learnt a lot of education material before attending school. The commitment from the girls has helped him excel with his school work. My toddler attends the Nursery. I have looked at other nurseries within the area. They don't match near the DVLA Nursery standards. Placing my youngest son gives me peace of mind he is the at the right place in receiving high standard care. Thanks girls for all your kindness and help. You are all stars.

We are extremely happy with the nursery we have chosen for our son. The staff are friendly and professional and the hard work they clearly put into caring for and developing the children does not go unnoticed. It's good to see that the food choices are always healthy and the children are taken outside for active play whenever possible. I'd love for my son to bring home more craft made items for us to keep.
I have and would continue to recommend the nursery to family and friends of mine and will soon be increasing the number of days that my son attends. It was difficult to go back to work after maternity and leave my son with strangers but I am confident he's in excellent hands. Thank you all.

My son, who is now almost 9, came to this nursery for many years. I was always impressed by the lovely staff, the clean and friendly atmosphere. It was without doubt that I wanted my 1-year-old to go to the same nursery. Some of the staff have changed, but there are still similar faces. Regardless, I feel at ease knowing where my son is - he comes home very tired every day as he has been doing so much.

Excellent facilities, lovely bunch of girls working there, caring and professional, exactly the type of people I know are looking after my children when I am not around. I have seen how calm and swift they can be in an emergency and have lots of confidence in their ability to react in unfortunate circumstances. Not an easy job, really happy with the care and attention my children get. My children love it there, when it's home time and I'm picking them up they are always smiling and normally want to stay!

My daughter has attended the DVLA nursery since August 2015 and she absolutely loves it! I was terrified of leaving her anywhere but the staff are brilliant and have always been so helpful. You can tell my daughter loves it, and she is always worn out afterwards! Since potty training, they have done exactly as I asked to make it the same as at home, and even with given medication, we have never had any problems. My daughter always learns a lot and has become a lovely confident toddler, and being in the nursery has definitely contributed a lot!
No complaints whatsoever, I will always recommend this nursery :)

This is our second child to use the DVLA day nursery, we love the environment and the gains in confidence that both our boys have shown whilst attending. At the moment we are transitioning our son to the toddlers section which he absolutely loves.
We have been superbly accommodated as we have a tricky work schedule.
We can't speak highly enough of all concerned.

My little boy really enjoys going to the DVLA Day Nursery. All the staff there are very friendly, warm and caring.
They have great advice and are full of helpful ideas when I am looking for any help and guidance with my child's development.
The nursery itself has lovely rooms that are colourful and bright with the right resources needed for my child's age.
I couldn't ask for a better nursery for my child to be in. I feel so confident leaving him with such capable staff members.

They always come home happy after completing a number of fantastic activities (some of which I really wish I had the time and facilities to do with them myself).

My daughter who is now 18 months goes to the DVLA Day Nursery once a week, she has been going since she was 11 months old. She absolutely loves it. The nursery nurses are so caring and patient and they ensure that my daughter is well looked after and happy. My daughter happily stays with the girls which puts my mind at ease when having to leave her. I would highly recommend this nursery. Thank you.

The staff are always extremely happy, professional and always been extremely accommodating. We would recommend the Nursery without hesitation. We have three wonderful completed scrap books that we will be able to look back at with fond memories of his time spent at the Nursery.

The staff at DVLA Day Nursery are part of our family. The care they give our son is equal to our own. They are supportive, understanding, helpful with advice to new parents, and show a genuine concern for the welfare of our child. But most importantly, our son loves his time there. Most days he doesn't want to leave he's having so much fun.

The staff are all so friendly and approachable and go out of their way to make sure my son is happy and content (we usually have tears when he goes in)

Big shout out to one lady in toddlers! My son has taken a shine to her and she always ensures that she comforts him when we get in as he is usually upset (for all of 2 minutes!)

Only observation is that in over a year we have never received any paintings or work which my son has done (in his previous nursery we would have something every week and a sheet telling us what he had done and played with that day)

We don't know what activities or what he actually does all day.

Rachel Kind-Parton, Supervisor at DVLA Day Nursery responded to this review on 06 Feb 2017:

As the focus is predominantly on the Children’s experiences and involvement and not necessarily the ‘end product’ it’s not an aim for us under the education curriculum to produce take home pieces of work on a daily basis. Your child would have been involved in a wealth of opportunities, activities and experiences throughout each day with us at nursery that have all been specifically designed by our qualified team to encourage, stimulate & develop not only their creative flare but their language, literacy, maths, physical and knowledge & understanding of the world all through play. The creative activities are usually carried out on large scales as children under 5yrs like to move, using large actions whilst creating masterpieces – this can also make it quite tricky to bring home. The focus is very much on getting involved and being free to get creative rather than the end product itself, we do recognise that it is precious to have items brought home as special keepsakes from your child and going forward will aim to provide one item a month brought home if your child would like to do so.

If you would like more information on the activities available to your Child throughout the day, please do not hesitate to speak to a staff member at any time.

Thank you for expressing this to us.

My daughter has attended this day nursery for 2 years now, she attends 4 days out of 5 and absolutely loves it. All the staff are amazing and she loves them like a member of the family. She learns so much with them and is so advanced for her age. They always keep us informed of everything that has happened that day and will always phone straight away if there is an issue. They are amazing and if I had any more children after my youngest I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Returning to work after a long maternity leave is a daunting process, especially leaving your little one in the care of strangers. The staff at the DVLA Day Nursery have helped to make this process far less anxiety provoking. The staff have been very friendly and extremely approachable. My little one has settled in very quickly and enjoys her days at the nursery. Everyone we have had contact with at the nursery have been very helpful. The staff all seem dedicated to providing a safe and happy environment for the children.

DVLA Day Nursery is absolutely amazing and I cannot thank each member of staff enough or praise them highly enough. My child is still miffed that she's not going anymore and talks about it daily a month on since leaving. When she talks about the staff she calls them her best friends and absolutely loved every day she spent there. The staff are amazing and very helpful, tended to her every need appropriately and in a caring manner. The activities are brilliant, plenty of messy play and creativity. The progress books with photos and descriptions are a joy to have and I will miss having those. The meals are wonderful, varied and healthy and my child ate very well there. I can't praise the nursery enough, I wouldn't hesitate to put my child in there again, trustworthy, caring and I always felt comfortable knowing she was being well looked after and having fun at the same time. She will be very excited at half term to come back to preschool for a week!

Thank you to everyone.

My son started with the nursery in Dec and has never been left with anyone apart from myself or my partner. The staff at the nursery have been fantastic and have really helped with him settling in and have put me totally at ease and have been happy to update me when I've called during the day and put my mind at rest and he loves it there. They're all very friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to other parents, as it was recommended to me.

Being a nursery nurse myself I found it so difficult to find a nursery that met all my high expectations and care that I wanted for my daughter. I visited 9 nurseries in total in the Swansea area and I instantly knew that I made the right choice by choosing the DVLA Day Nursery as soon as I entered the building. So warming and welcoming.
The nursery wouldn't be what it is without the amazing girls that give so much care to each individual child. No matter what question I have to ask they always go above and beyond for myself and my daughter. You should be proud of yourselves ladies!
Overall my experience with my daughter attending this nursery is excellent or I could even say outstanding!

My daughter is very happy at the nursery. I have absolutely no problems with the nursery, it's staff, cleanliness etc. she always comes home singing, always happy and loves to go in. She shows how content she is by going in once a week for a full day with no fuss.

The staff are very caring, fun and professional and all well trained. The nursery is safe and secure, staff who don't recognise the family member will ask for a password or get another staff to identify the person, which is lovely to know the children are safe. My daughter loves coming here, so it's peace of mind for us as parents at work. The communication between staff and parents is great. I use the nursery's school pick up service, so any information from the school is passed on to me the same day. The outside garden area is perfect for play and learning.

All the girls at the nursery are really down to earth, and my 11-month-old has no issues with me leaving her with any of them.
They always welcome me and my baby the same way as they did when we first came to visit.
Whenever I go in to pick my baby up, she is always accompanied by a member of staff and seems very content, as does the atmosphere around her and the other babies.
My baby always comes out of the nursery with a record sheet of what she has eaten, including the quantities and details of naps and nappy changes.
I am very happy with the care my baby receives and would most definitely recommend this nursery to my friends and family.

It is great to see my daughter grow and develop in a safe, fun and vibrant nursery. The staff have been brilliant with her since she started, they are always caring and attentive. From the office to the front line caring, nothing is a problem and I feel we are always greeted with a smile. I see the happiness in my daughter when I have snuck a look at her before picking her up and that is a nice thing to see for any parent.

My wife and I are foster parents and have had dozens of children in our care, we have sometimes had children with very difficult to manage behaviours from very abused and neglected backgrounds. The team at DVLA Day Nursery are the only ones I would consider to place these children as they have shown an exemplary attitude in managing the behaviours and giving these children a loving nurturing environment where they grow as individuals. We had one child who was considered as unlikely to be adopted and likely to spend his life in care. The support he received at the nursery and their ability to work towards the same goals as us resulted in him improving to the point where he was adopted and is thriving with his new family. We will always be grateful for their hard work and dedication to helping with his journey through his younger years and for the care that our other children have received there. The staff I have marked as excellent below but I feel that doesn't do them justice.

I cannot recommend the nursery and dedicated staff enough. My daughter started at the nursery when she was 7 months old, she is now 5 and in her first year of full-time school. We still use the nursery for playscheme during school holidays. Over the years my daughter has formed a special bond with many of the staff. Staff have always recognised the individuality of all the children and tailored their approach accordingly. We were lucky enough to receive support from staff who went above and beyond their roles when my daughter was experiencing some difficulties transitioning to school. A fantastic nursery and fantastic staff.

From the moment I walked up to the DVLA Day Nursery let alone inside, I felt it was the right decision; the signage, security and welcome signs were very reassuring.
My son is in the baby room and I'm more than happy that he is in a stimulating environment looked after by caring, passionate staff who I feel comfortable looking after my son. The space is airy, has lots of activities and areas. Always something going on. I like that they have different activities set out. Never a dull moment!
My son loves going to the nursery and I know he is well looked after. Communication is excellent and although the staff are very professional, they are approachable, polite and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and I know they look after my son as though he's their own. I'm confident that the care will follow through to the next stages in the nursery also. Management are well organised and friendly. They are there to help with queries. You feel their passion for childcare too.

The staff at the nursery are always courteous and so keen to help. They are quick to mediate problems and reward progress with the children. I would (and do) recommend the nursery as I have complete confidence that my child is getting the best possible care away from me. The space is clean and light and offers a fantastic environment for the children with plenty to do and structured creative and learning activities.

All of the staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful. My daughter has been there for around 8 months and she is very excited every morning she is there, if she is having an off day one of the girls is there to comfort her.

Love hearing what she has done each day and hearing her sing the song that she had learnt. More than happy leaving my daughter in the care of the staff, makes leaving her while I go to work a lot easier

I don't have enough words to describe how wonderful this nursery is. They have cared for my children for 3yrs and from the first day I dropped them off I knew they were in good hands. They have helped to get my children to try new foods and been able to get them to explore with arts and crafts which I am grateful for as I never seemed to have the time. They also work within the curriculum to help children prepare and transition into school life.
I'm so sad that the girls at the nursery are not gonna be a part of my children's lives as they're both in full-time school.

My daughter's attended DVLA Day Nursery for almost a year now.
She thoroughly enjoys her time there and looks forward to going in.
The staff are brilliant! They understand how hard it is to leave your child there and do all they can to reassure you.
Activities are inclusive and designed with learning in mind.
When there have been incidents ie biting, reporting is effective.

Both my kids went here for crèche and play scheme, various times - they came on leaps and bounds in several aspects - play, speech, potty training, creativity. Staff are wonderful. I'd recommend to anyone.

The carers are well informed and trained to good standards to care for children with allergies. Each of the carers assist my child's development through play, singing, talking, reading and praise. When ever there may be a concern regarding my child's health the team are quick to inform me, to ensure the best care for my child at all times. The key person takes pictures of my child and creates a book to discuss the progress of my child's development. This is a pleasure to read and particularly good that plenty of messy play is experienced in nursery, requiring less mess at home. The nursery will not allow any person in the premises unless they recognise them or can verify who they are with a password. I have been challenged by newer staff members before they would permit me entry to collect my child. This is reassuring to know that my child will remain safe and secure, whilst I am at work. There is an outdoor section for each age group, which is used throughout the year, allowing my child fresh air and to develop their learning with the outdoor environment. This is the second child I have placed in the nursery and I cannot recommend this enough.

If I could make one suggestion it would be to encourage my child to eat more varieties of fresh fruit to help achieve their 5 portions a day.
