Reviews

9.5 Singleton Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.508)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Singleton Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Singleton Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 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 4.745 for Singleton Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (185 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.745

  • 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 4.763 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Singleton Day Nursery is based on 18 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 23.6 positive Reviews (118 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 23.6 Target = 0.763

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Staff have been very caring of my son since he started attending at the age of 9 months. He settled in very quickly and after a few weeks he was happy to go to the nursery and I could leave him with a smile. Staff will let me know if he's not well or tell me what he enjoyed doing when I pick him up. He also seems to love the food at the nursery. He'll even eat all his vegetables! My work commitment means I sometimes have to change the days he goes in but the nursery has been very accommodating and I really appreciate that.

My daughter has just started nursery here on a full-time basis, prior to me returning to work. The staff have been fantastic with settling in her and have made me feel so much less anxious about the transition. Couldn't be happier with the nursery.

The baby section is wonderful, all staff are caring and considerate. My daughter loves to go to nursery and I feel she is safe and well cared for. The activities provided are exciting and have helped to enhance her development. There is always a wide range of activities available daily and the daily routine is varied and well organised. The menu has lots of different choices that my daughter loves. She has formed great bonds with the baby staff and is always happy when I pick her up.

I have nothing but good reviews about the nursery. The staff are all lovely and I get on well with them all.

They always make me feel welcome and I always know I am leaving my son in very safe hands.

They are such a loving and caring place, never a bad word to say about them.

Would recommend this nursery to anyone I know. So, thank you, Singleton Day Nursery for always making me and my family safe and happy.

Singleton Day Nursery is a fantastic place for young children to start their learning right up to proper school age. My daughter started there at 6 months old and stayed until she started Reception at 4 years old. We still use it now for the Playscheme in the holidays. The staff are friendly and fantastic with the children. My daughter loved it there and learnt so much in preparation for proper school. I would 100% recommend to anyone, in fact, I have already.

All the staff at the nursery are friendly and approachable. They have built and excellent rapport with my daughter and have helped with potty training by taking our needs into consideration. My daughter is offered plenty of nutritious food to eat. She is also kept entertained by a range of activities such as crafts, music and outdoor play. I have no concerns regarding the care she receives as I have seen her develop vocabulary and numerical skills due to learning through play. When she started nursery, she was shy and clingy to only family members, now she has developed social skills with adults and children. The nursery have been excellent at accommodating our needs as I don't work set shifts so the days she attends change weekly and this has never been a problem. Some weeks she's in for 2 days and some for 4 days. I wouldn't be able to work if it wasn't for the flexibility which they offer.

The best thing we ever did for our son was to put him into this nursery. He's learned so much whilst being at Singleton and we feel he will be much more equipped for school with the stepping stone the nursery has provided. The staff work really hard and care a great deal about the children. I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to anyone.

Really good holiday club provision. My son attended full time at Singleton until going to school but now loves the opportunity to come back and 'visit' during the holidays. Staff are always welcoming and try to be as accommodating with dates as is possible. I like the age range of the holiday club and can see that all ages are catered for.

We are really happy with this nursery. Our 10 month old son is there and is absolutely thriving. Our son has specific dietary needs and the nursery go above and beyond to provide him with a variety of food. We were nervous when we sent our baby to nursery but we couldn't be more pleased by the way that they care for him.

Both my children have been at Singleton Day (Schoolhouse) Nursery since they were 10 months old. It is a wonderful nursery. The staff are patient and kind. They let the children be themselves. There is a supportive, nurturing and educational environment. My children are very happy there. I would definitely recommend it.

I would highly recommend this company to friends and colleagues.
My son is 8 and loves going to the playscheme in the school holidays he has made lots of new friends also likes the day trips that are arranged and the fun days where they make things and have parties.
I would be really stuck for the school holidays without this friendly caring, lovely ladies that help the children as much as they can.
It's also great for the children to get outside when the weather is dry in the garden to burn off some of their energy.

Generally, the nursery is Fab! And the staff are great.

They need to resolve the method of opening the door, especially during busy times. We understand that the staff cannot leave our children, so maybe there should be a camera and button in the office or face recognition and a card like you get in some gyms. The bell could be used for visitors or one-offs.

Feel the latest price increase is a little excessive.

I have nothing but praise for this nursery.
My child enjoys herself greatly here - she has made many friends and loves the staff. It will be a shame when she eventually leaves, and our second will certainly go here as well in the future.

I relocated to Swansea and was worried my three year old son would not adjust to all the changes we had gone through. The nursery was more than I imagined with great ease of registration and make the adjustment smooth. The staff were loving and caring and supportive and helped us tackle potty training which we had struggled with for months. The cook accommodated our request for his meat/chicken meals with ease. I can not recommend this nursery enough. My son is in an environment where he is valued and helped to realise his potential and is relaxed.
