Reviews

9.9 Pear Tree Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.852)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Pear Tree 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 69 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pear Tree Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 55 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 4.852 for Pear Tree Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (706 Excellents x 5) + (114 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 824 Ratings = 4.852

  • 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 Pear Tree Nursery is based on 55 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 55 Reviews ÷ 10.2 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 find this to be a fantastic nursery. They take great interest in the children and provide a safe and welcoming environment for the kids to develop and have fun. The staff really take an interest in the children and our son really likes all the staff and thoroughly enjoys his time at Pear Tree.

Everything about this nursery is excellent. My grandchildren have come on in leaps and bounds and have plenty of confidence since joining with all the activities the staff encourage them to try and succeed at. The food is very nutritious, tasty and appealing and the children love it. The staff are first class and totally comitted to the children in everything they do with them. The outside play area is very safe and full of equipment for the children and they thoroughly enjoy it and get plenty of fresh air. The staff take the children to the park for different activities which again opens their outlook to what they can do which is good for them. This nursery is safe, comfortable and homely and the staff make it that way.

My son had found nursery and separation very difficult at his previous nursery, but within days of being at Pear Tree he had settled in and was actively looking forward to his days there. There is a friendly atmosphere for children and parents, and he has grown in confidence and enjoys his days which is obviously very important to us as well as him.

The staff are attentive and detailed, always full of new and creative ideas to keep the children inspired while taking direction from the children in what they enjoy doing. There is an emphasis on outdoor play which is great. The garden has very good facilities and we consider the Forest School trips an important part of their learning.

The food is good and the kids are kept well fuelled throughout the day.

We are very happy with the variety and quality of activities available to my child. Plenty of time is spent outdoors including in local woodland which is very much enjoyed. The nursery nurses are kind, professional, helpful and cheerful. The food is good and healthy and the facilities are clean, bright and well organised. My child is very happy to attend. I am extremely happy with the care provided.

My son attends several sessions each week and the staff cannot do enough to make sure my son is settled and ready for a fun-filled day of activities before I leave. The staff really take the concerns of a parent seriously and always ask how my son is and if there is anything the should be made aware of. Potty training is another gold star. We opted to start the potty training after the Xmas break and the Pear Tree staff took this on board and showed great initiative by encouraging my son to continue with a training chart and stickers! The staff are highly motivated, very helpful and always give 100%. I leave each day knowing my son will have a fantastic day. His current favourite is Forest School on a Tuesday. I think attending Pear Tree from age 1 has helped with my son's development. I note that he communicates well with everyone. He's confident, independent, inquisitive and always looking for new challenges. I truly believe Pear Tree has played a large part in his development progress.

They keep us updated on what the kids have been up to. They do such a variety of activities and we love that the kids go out in the garden a lot every day.

My daughter loves going into the nursery and is always talking about the staff when at home. I am confident that when I leave my daughter in the morning she's going to have a great day.

My Son has been going to Pear Tree since the baby room and is now in the 3-5 room. He particularly loves the outside play space, and I think he would happily spend all day in the mud kitchen most days! The staff in every room have been great with him and all of them take the time to really get to know all the children. While he has had phases of being clingy at drop off, they haven't lasted long as everyone has made sure that he feels safe and welcome and he always has a great time. In fact, he has recently asked me a few times if he can stay overnight at nursery rather than come home!!

My daughter has been attending Pear Tree since August '16. She loves going to the nursery and is really happy there. I am really pleased with the service so far and the activities on offer for the children are excellent. The garden area is huge as is the sandpit and I know my little one loves it. The handover at the end of the day is so thorough I know exactly what's been going on and what she's been doing. A fab nursery with excellent staff.

Great nursery. Lots of different areas of play in the baby room. I like it that they often go out for walks around the town and to the river. Great variety of homemade food. Miracle workers at getting my son to sleep!
The best and most important thing is that the nursery has a lovely environment; the very caring staff create a home-from-home for the children. I know my son is happy there.

Pear Tree Nursery provides a safe and relaxed environment which encourages children to express and develop themselves. There is a diverse range of activities across the rooms, in the garden and in the excursions. Our daughter enjoys her time at nursery and has made lots of friends. She also talks about what she has done and shows us some of the things she does at home.

The staff are very good at sharing their observations of the areas our daughter shows natural ability and areas they are helping our daughter develop.

The staff continual add new and different experiences in the nursery and encourage parents to provide ideas or thoughts where improvements could be made.

We would not hesitate to recommend the nursery to friends.

Our son loves Peartree and has formed a real bond with both the staff and children in his room. He loves being outdoors so the fact they go out nearly every day either for a walk along the river and a play in the gardens or just onto the balcony, is great for him. The staff are knowledgeable and attend to his needs with care and attention - they have taken the time to get to know him and we feel that they genuinely care for him and his well-being. This gives us a lot of confidence as parents. We would not hesitate to recommend Peartree.

My son has been attending Pear Tree since he was 10 months old. He is currently in the 3-5 room. All of the staff are dedicated to their different roles and put in a lot of extra effort to ensure the children are happy, challenged and learning. Also, they are first aid trained which is very important. The room and resources make use of a lot of natural resources and my son loved especially going to forest schools. An in-house chef provides healthy meals and healthy snacks are provided as well. The garden is large and provides many different resources for the children to explore including my son's favourite, the mud kitchen! Management are easily approachable with any issues and concerns and provide an open door policy. Overall, we are very happy and confident to send our son to Pear Tree and know that he is in safe hands with the staff who work there.

Both our children attend the nursery. We have been very happy with the standard care of our children. The staff are caring, genuine and strive to make the children feel part of the nursery. Both our children are thriving in the nursery environment, providing them opportunities to learn not only on their own but with other children and supported by the practitioners. It feels like an extension of our home providing our children with the confidence to explore in a safe, secure and encouraging environment. The nursery is continually investing in their staff and for the resources, they use for the children. This is important for both parties, as it continues to inspire the practitioners to bring the best experience each day for our children.

All staff are great with the kids, keep them really stimulated and busy...they don't even realise that they are learning!

The nursery constantly updates and changes activities and the facilities to make sure they are up to date and continually challenge the kids.

Staff are enthusiastic during handovers and appear genuinely delighted in my daughter's achievements.
My daughter enjoys nursery a great deal. I asked her what she would like to do on Saturday and she said 'Nursery'.

I had a slight reservation about my daughters transition from the baby room to the 2-3 room since the space wasn't the same standard as I felt had already been achieved in the baby room. Though I did not raise this concern with staff or management the issue was addressed over Christmas. This indicates a management commitment to maintain the nursery to a high standard throughout. The room looks much brighter and more welcoming now.
In terms of safeguarding, I have been impressed with the updated notices regards entry to the nursery and, likewise, the staff response to ensuring guidelines are adhered to.
Thank you for all your wonderful work.

I feel so comfortable with the staff at Pear Tree, they show a genuine warmth towards my 2 children. They are actively listening, very warm and reassuring. I leave them knowing they will have a great time and have done a huge variety of things by the time I go back to collect them. They come home tired but very happy. They are firm but fair, asking the children to be kind to others and look after each other, sharing well.

Great nursery, proving a friendly flexible service with total peace of mind.

My daughter has attended Pear Tree for 2 and a half years now and I couldn't ask for anything better. She is kept busy with lots of fun and educational activities, and the large secure garden is absolutely brilliant with lots to explore. The children all get lovely cooked meals and healthy snacks provided which she loves.
The staff are brilliant, so friendly and professional, and it's obvious that all the children love them. Each day they will spend time telling me what my daughter has been up to and what she has eaten etc. Overall it's just a brilliant nursery!

The garden is large with lots of toys and it's used on a daily basis meaning the children get fresh air and exercise. The meals plans are published in advance and there is a good variety in the menu.

Pear Tree Nursery is excellent and would happily recommend it. Our daughter had been going for to the nursery for 18 months. The staff and facilities in both the baby and tweenie room are fantastic. Our daughter enjoys playing in the large garden, particularly the large sandpit and the balance bikes. She also enjoys the food - often eating lots of things she doesn't at home and trying interesting new foods. All the staff are friendly, approachable and treat our daughter as an individual.

I have two boys (aged 2 and 5 years). Although my older son is now at school, both boys have attended, and my younger still does attend, the Pear Tree Nursery. I use the nursery services on a full-time basis so getting the right nursery was extremely important to me. As soon as my two children started at the nursery in November 2015, I knew I had found the right place.

My older son had been in an Edinburgh city centre nursery since he was 10 months old and I was initially concerned that a move to a new nursery would be hard for him. It wasn't at all! The staff were very understanding of our situation and welcomed us with open arms and did all they could to settle my children. I rate the staff very highly. They all clearly love their job and do all they can to make the nursery environment stimulating and fun. I also rate the food very highly. It is healthy and nourishing and my son eats extremely well every day. As the food is freshly cooked on the premises it really makes a difference.

My son was previously at another local nursery which at the time I was satisfied with as I couldn't get a place in the Pear Tree but put our name down for the waiting list as I had heard so many good things. Needless to say after a couple of months a place came up and I have to say i'd never look back. There is no comparison that could be made, the Pear Tree is in a league of its own and my son is always excited going into nursery and comes home with exciting stories to tell every day. Couldn't rate the Pear Tree highly enough. Awesome :)

I always feel completely confident that they genuinely care about my daughter and that enough interesting activities will crop up. I don't feel learning is stuffed down their throats but that they learn through play, which in my opinion is the right way!

My son is in the process of being diagnosed with autism, the staff at the nursery have been amazing at helping both myself and him with nursery life. He is due to move to school nursery soon and I was worried that this would be an issue for him but the staff in his room have come up with some great strategies to help him get ready for the transition. They have been such a great help throughout a stressful and emotional time in my sons life.

This is quite simply the best Nursery around.

The service and care provided to the children is second to none.
The food is fantastic - freshly made on site and varied day by day.
All of the children there build up excellent relationships with all of the staff very quickly indeed.

Our daughter has come on leaps and bounds in the 12 months that she has attended Pear Tree, our only regret being that we did not move her here sooner! The only reason that she is now leaving is to take up a School Nursery place closer to home.

Upgraded garden a massive success - excellent outdoor facilities in a safe secure setting for all the children.

The staff are friendly, approachable and caring.
They always go the extra mile.

Look nowhere else for a nursery to place your child - This quite simply is the best children's nursery in the United Kingdom, never mind Haddington, East Lothian or Scotland.

This is a great nursery whose staff really take the time to get to know both parents and children. Staff are happy to assist children transition through different stages of their lives. For example some of the children will soon have younger siblings or have been moving house so the staff use this as discussion topics throughout the day. It is a very progressive nursery with staff well trained. An excellent service.
