Reviews

9.2 Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.217)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 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 4.777 for Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.777

  • 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 4.44 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport is based on 8 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 18.2 positive Reviews (91 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 18.2 Target = 0.440

  • 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 has attended the nursery since she was 10 months old. Having moved through each of the rooms from babies to preschool. I cannot fault the nursery or staff. All staff are helpful and happy and seem to know my daughter very well. I'm very impressed with the new outdoor layout and she loves to run around especially checking the plants and bug houses. Any question I've had has always been answered quickly and clearly and my daughter always has a big smile on her face when I collect her.

I cannot fault the nursery at all. My son has been attending Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport since he was 2 years old and he just loves it. I've never had any problems during his time at the nursery it always runs smoothly for myself and for my son. The staff are great, the nursery itself is great with plenty of space for all the children. The outside area is the biggest I've seen for a nursery playground and my son loves it! The flexibility the nursery gives for shift workers like myself is simply amazing - it really does take the pressure off massively and allows me to be a working mum. So happy that my son still has another year left at Happitots Day Nursery Glasgow Airport before starting school.

Both my sons have attended Happitots from the age of 1. They have both loved being there and have developed a level of confidence that will help them cope when starting school. The staff have always offered support and guidance with their learning and development and were very supportive when going through the process of potty training and assisting with medical needs. I have always felt reassured leaving my kids in their care and would highly recommend to anyone.

Staff are committed, friendly, helpful and supportive. My son has great relationships there and feels incredibly secure and is very happy. He's made some great friendships, now eats a wide range of foods compared to when he started and his speech and understanding has come on in leaps and bounds. Plus the children are always doing fun activities!

This nursery has made my transition from being a full-time mum, to going back to work very easy. The staff are all fantastic and have a great relationship with the kids. The facilities are really geared to each age group. My daughter is constantly entertained and gets to explore lots of different activities that I probably couldn't offer myself. Her dad and I get an insight to her day through the online learning journals which is a fantastic tool, we get to see what she really enjoys and what she may not be interested in, again geared to each individual child. The ability to change days each week for child care is a huge benefit also. I am a hospital worker and work different shifts every week, this allows me to have my days with her if I am off on certain days, it's not restricted.
All staff are really genuine folk and very approachable. I cannot rate them highly enough. Happitots has made us a very happy family and my daughter is just blossoming here. Thank you, everyone at Happitots.

Fantastic day nursery that suits our needs due to location and our shift patterns at work. We can book our son in whatever days we are working as long as we give a months notice. The facilities are great including great gardens where there are lots to amuse the kids. The lunches and snacks are excellent and sound so tasty! The staff are the best part about the nursery! Lots of friendly faces with the greatest abilities to deal with all age groups of children. We have had children at Happitots for 5 years and built up great relationships with many of them. Absolutely recommend this nursery.

Fantastic nursery, second time using this nursery. Staff are all very friendly, helpful and approachable and build a good rapport with both the children and their families. I highly recommend this nursery, especially for shift workers. It has fantastic outside space for each age group, each with their own playground. The staff provide excellent support to both the children and the parents. I'm so glad I found this nursery.

I can't put into words how happy I have been with the care my son has received from the staff at Happitots. In fact I don't think of them as staff. They have become friends over the last 5 years. My son started attending when he was 9 months old. I was beating myself up for having to leave my tiny baby with strangers. From the first meeting with the manager and staff I knew my baby boy would be safe and sound at Happitots. My son has grown into a confident, kind and friendly little boy and I thank the girls and guys from the bottom of my heart for helping make him the little boy he is today. We will both be sad when he leaves in August to start the next part of his journey. However it's with happy memories of the 5 years he has spent with all the amazing staff at Happitots.
Thank you all so much.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Carolyn! We are so happy you're pleased with our service and we couldn't be prouder to be part of your little ones journey!

Both my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Happitots having been there from 9 months up until they started school.
The staff are friendly and caring.
The outside space is fantastic, much better than any other nurseries we viewed.
Would not hesitate to recommend .
