  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Neath Port Talbot Hospital 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 7 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 4.889 for Neath Port Talbot Hospital Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (161 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Neath Port Talbot Hospital Day Nursery is based on 7 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.833

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

My daughter loves going to nursery every day. She is very well looked after and the staff are very professional and caring. I do not have any worries during the day about the care she receives. My daughter loves the food which is a 5* rating. The activities are fun and educational having that balance between structure and free play. The outdoor facilities are very good with a range of toys and equipment. All staff and management are very approachable and deal with queries promptly and professionally.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for over 18 months. It's a great environment, with helpful, kind staff and a place that really benefits the children who attend. The activities that she does there are varied and educational and there hasn't been a meal that she has not enjoyed! A lovely place.

An excellent nursery which both of my children have thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are always friendly and show love and care to all.
The nursery provides a structured day filled with fun activities, learning experiences and an excellent food menu.
I couldn't be happier leaving my girls there. I wouldn't look anywhere else for childcare as this nursery ticks all the boxes.

My son has attended the nursery since he was 9 months old, although I was extremely anxious at first the staff completely put my mind at rest from the beginning and he settled very well and relatively quickly.
My son is now 15 months and the development has been amazing.
He now cannot wait to go into creche on a daily basis and it provides great reassurance knowing that he is extremely well cared for with a great amount of activities throughout the day to keep him busy.
I cannot thank all the staff enough and would highly recommend.

My little girl has been going here for around a year and a half and she loves attending nursery. It's so reassuring to know that she is having a good day and is safe and happy while there.
All the staff are friendly, happy, helpful, approachable and do a fantastic job.
We feel very lucky that we have chosen this nursery for our little girl to go to. We are always kept informed of how she is doing and things that are happening in the nursery.
Overall we have lots of praise for the whole of the nursery and are very happy with the service they provide.

Our son has been attending nursery since October after a friend recommended them. It has been a tough few weeks since he has been clingy and upset when we leave him but everyone has been so supportive to our son and to us as parents, many times I have burst into tears there! All the staff are very friendly and say how well he is doing although all I see are tears! But he soon settles and starts playing. They even took photos of him to show my how happy he is. I feel reassured that he is having the best care and loads of fun at nursery

Our 22 month old little girl has attended this nursery since she was 11 months old, for four days each week. She has progressed through from the baby into the tweenies' room and will shortly be moving up into the toddler space. We have nothing but the highest praise for the staff at the facility who have always offered the kind of comforting and supporting approach you would hope your child would receive when they're not with you. Our daughter has had the opportunity to develop real relationships with the staff and not only recognises them all but has a connection with many of them that means she feels able to enjoy her time at nursery, irrespective of whether her key worker is with her or not.

We would recommend this facility to any parent but also that prospective parents visit other sites too, to allow for a comparative view on whether the NPT nursery is for you. We couldn't be happier with the choice.

My child has been with Schoolhouse Daycare nursery and I'm very happy with the service that I've received. I'm particularly impressed with the relationship that the staff have with my son. He is not just a number at this nursery and I can see that he is cared for whilst in their care. This is important for me as I need my child to enjoy this experience. When he moved from the baby room to the next level I was presented with the most beautiful book, full of photos and memories of his time at the nursery so far. It was thorough and I could clearly see how much fun he has at the nursery. Not only was this a keepsake for me and my family, but also reassurance that leaving him in the care of the assistants is in fact an enjoyable experience for him. I would highly recommend this nursery to friends and family

When my son started at the nursery he was very clingy and would not go to anyone other than myself and his grandparents and would not walk even though he was 1 when he started at the nursery. Within a few weeks they had him taking a few steps and is now happily walking on his own. He also loves all of the woman that work there, ofthen refusing to leave the nursery without giving them all a kiss goodbye!
I reccomend the nursery to anyone with children and will continue to do so.

My son started at the nursery in the Tweenie room. I was initially very nervous about leaving him but the girls were very welcoming and supportive and soon put my mind at rest. I think the nursery is very bright and colourful and it is clear throughout the nursery that there are lots of fantastic activities going on. I really liked the fact that he came home from nursery on his first day with paintings that he had done.
The outdoor facilities are fantastic, with plenty of space for the children to run around and play. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone!

Sarah James, Nursery Manager at Neath Port Talbot Hospital Day Nursery responded to this review on 21 Jan 2016:

Thank you for choosing Neath Port Talbot Day Nursery for the care of your child. We are really pleased to hear you are happy with the service we provide.

I have three children, up until this point I had never had to use a nursery facility and was very apprehensive due to this and my son had never been left with anyone other than maternal grandparents. The Nursery Staff were very polite and friendly from the moment they opened the door to myself and my son, right up until we left for the day. Every member of staff you passed would greet you with a smile and a 'hello'. What I found particularly nice was that the staff spoke to my son directly to welcome and invite him in. The nursery was very clean and there were plenty of toys there for my son to play with.

When I met with the Nursery Manager to complete the paperwork for my son to attend the nursery, everything was explained to me and any questions I had were answered leaving me feeling that this was the right place to look after my son.

As my son had not been to a nursery before he was very apprehensive and did get upset, the staff reassured me and comforted my son, they asked me about things he liked to play with, songs he liked etc to help him to relax and enjoy his day at the nursery.

When I returned to collect him, I was given feedback to how his day had been, both what he was offered for food and how much he had eaten, what he had to drink, nappy changes and sleeping.

I was very impressed by this experience, so much so that my son is booked in to the Nursery again.
