9.8 Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.834)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) 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 47 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 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 4.834 for Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) is calculated as follows: ( (471 Excellents x 5) + (85 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 560 Ratings = 4.834

  • 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 Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) is based on 27 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 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 18 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.

Our eldest child attended Greengables Day Nursery and was very happy there. The grounding it gave him helped him make a happy, settled transition to infant school. Our youngest child now attends on 3 days a week and loves his time in the pre-school. He talks enthusiastically about his experiences and is clearly engaged and motivated by the well planned and structured activities, within the lively and stimulating environment.

We cannot speak highly enough about the staff, who always genuinely care about our children, for example when our youngest son was off having been seriously ill on holiday, he received a lovely card and the warmest of welcomes back to put his and our minds at rest.

Staff communicate effectively and are always approachable and friendly. We like the extra events, such as sports days and fetes, which create a great sense of community.
We would unreservedly recommend Greengables to prospective parents, as our children love their time there.

We are absolutely thrilled with how well our children (age two and three) have settled into Greengables. The environment is bright and engaging and the staff are so kind and caring. The food provided is also of the highest standard and a well-balanced range of foods. My daughter also has a milk allergy which is well catered for.

Our son is excited to go to Preschool every day, where we used to have a battle each morning to get him to his previous setting. He is also a member of the Eco School Committee which he loves!
Our daughter's speech has literally doubled in a matter of weeks and she has started eating food she had never even considered trying before. She has gone from the worlds fussiest eater to giving everything a go. She seems to be really responding to the gentle methods of play and teaching used.

Overall we would highly recommend Greengables to parents looking for a childcare setting for their child.

My son has just finished at Greengables Day Nursery (Owlsmoor) to go on to school. He has been going to the nursery since he was 11 months old and will certainly miss attending. My son fully enjoyed his time at the nursery and was supported by fantastic staff throughout his time there.
All staff are approachable and friendly and as a parent, I was completely happy with the care my child received while in the nursery. Would recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter has been coming to Greengables since she was nine months old. This is her last month here and even though I am excited for her to start school, I will and my daughter will truly miss this place. They have been fantastic, given my daughter the best start to life. They have been so helpful with everything, always friendly and have made some great memories to treasure.
I would always recommend this place to anyone.

Greengables is a fantastic play environment, for all ages. My two children have loved their time at the nursery and developed so much since starting. My daughter has been fully prepared for her transition to "big" school and has, I feel, been put in the best possible position moving forward. Each day both of my children brought home art work and tales of activities they had done and I can't thank the staff enough for all their help and support over the years.

My daughter started going to Greengables when she was 6 months old. I do not have any family close by and Greengables and the staff have been an amazing support and offered my daughter the best possible start to her educational journey. I am delighted that my daughter attends the nursery and I would not dream of sending her to any other nursery in the area. All of the management team are approachable and always greet me and my husband every time we enter the building. Although our daughter only attends one day a week we are treated as part of the Greengables family and I will be so sad when my daughter is too old to go there.
The place is excellent, I could not be a more contented parent to send my daughter there.

Thank you Greengables Owlsmoor.

From day one, we were always made to feel very welcome as a family. All the staff seem to really take an interest in my daughter and took the time getting to know her, which now results in her being a very happy, confident little lady at nursery.

They have helped continue the potty training we had started at home and when having to exclude certain foods from her diet during a flare up of her eczema, it was never seen to be an issue.
The nursery have always been very accommodating with everything!

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. Thank you for making it all easier for an initially anxious mummy!

Greengables Day Nursery, a fantastic place for all children.
I have two children (ages 1 and 3) that attend here and both love going. They get so much out of it, always coming home full of different things they have made and learnt.
The staff are amazing, they always find the time to discuss how my children have been that day, what they have been up to and what they are working on. There is also parent zone so I can see for myself where they are with their development. If I want more development tools for my children the staff are happy to provide this and talk me through it.
The facilities are really good, with lovely outside spaces for the children of different ages to play in.
The food is fantastic with a wide variety of different meals, my children always seem to eat everything there!

All the staff are very friendly and seem to know my son by name. We are greeted on arrival every morning with a smile and a cheery attitude. The variety of activities is excellent and the frequency of artistic creations to bring home is high. My son loves attending nursery and this is evident in the regular updates (including pictures) on the app provided. It's really nice to see how he is progressing against key markers and what the plans are to aid his further development. I can't fault them.

Everyone at the nursery has been amazing every day since we have used them.

Many days we have tears leaving nursery.

I can not thank the staff at Greengables enough for the help, support and kindness of every staff member I've met. My children are 4 and almost 3 and have both been attending the setting since they were both 8.5 months old.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone with children within the age that could attend and have done so in the past. I will be so sad for my children to leave Greengables, they have grown and learnt so much since they have been there.

My 20-month-old daughter started going to the nursery only 2 months. This nursery is very spacious and has lots of activities happening. My daughter loves her prime carer and it makes me very happy to see her going to nursery in all smiles. All other carers seem to be pleasant and always smiling. I like that they even give a late evening snack for children who get picked up late. Can say my little one is defiantly being taken care of, enjoying and making friends while learning lots of new things.

My children have settled well at Greengables. Pre-school is very good in letting me know how I can help my child develop and prepare for school. They are good at encouraging my daughter's independence. Ladybirds are good at making relationships and nurturing my son. He is very happy there and receives a lot of mental stimulation as well as affection from the workers.

Our little boy has been with Greengables Day Nursery for just over 6 months and we have been so impressed with the staff there. Our son is just coming up two at the end of the month and he has completely flourished since being at the Nursery. The staff are kind, empathic and extremely good at communicating all aspects of your child's day with you. We have felt thoroughly supported as new parents and feel completely comfortable to ask advice at any time.

I would 100% recommend this Nursery to any parent who wishes their child to be in a caring safe and stimulating environment.

We cannot praise Greengables enough! Our little boy started at the nursery in Oct 2016 and he has been so happy! It's so lovely as a Mum to leave your little one happy knowing that he is in safe hands. The Staff are so friendly and welcoming and nothing is ever too much trouble. The Nursery itself is clean, fresh and vibrant and most importantly has such a happy atmosphere. It's a wonderful place for little ones.

My son has recently started at Greengables and I cannot fault how good the nursery has been, with settling in visits for him before hand so he became familiar with the staff and nursery.
The staff all seem loving and caring and the management do a very good job of running the nursery. There is always a wide variety of activities on offer to stimulate the children and they all seem to be set for different abilities so all children can progress in their individual development. The outdoor space is great and the children have activities out there so can learn whilst getting some fresh air. Overall I'm extremely pleased with the nursery.

Greengables is an excellent nursery and is run by a very good management team. The children are offered a variety of activities throughout the day that are all done around the children's ages and abilities. They have a lovely garden area for children to play in the fresh air and can extend their learning opportunities out there.

My three children attend Greengables Day Nursery. My twin boys in the caterpillar room and my daughter in preschool and they absolutely love it. All the staff are excellent and my children love them and I leave for work knowing they are in safe hands and are having fun as well as learning. The daily reports are always informative as are the weekly emails. A great team at Greengables Day Nursery and we are very happy with their service.

My 3 children absolutely love Greengables Day Nursery & the staff there are absolutely fantastic. Nothing is too much to ask, the room staff are excellent with the children & make sure that the children's needs are met, they have formed strong bonds with them individually, I know my children are being cared for properly. The admin lady is also so helpful, always responds promptly and nothing is too much to ask. The reception & management team are all so friendly, professional & always make time to have a chat. The food is excellent, well balanced and varied. We are given a monthly menu & emailed each week so you can keep track of what you child eats so that you can plan their dinners with ease. I switched my daughter to Greengables Day Nursery as she was unhappy with her previous one & I can honestly say she has settled very quickly as have my 18 Month twins. The security is very good (a high priority for us) & parking is good too. The nursery itself is always clean & the toys and equipment are plentiful.

I chose Greengables Nursery compared to the others as the staff were very engaging and proud of the work they did. My little girl has settled so well and has been looked after beautifully by the staff. She enjoys coming into nursery and has developed so well. The staff plan a range of activities to help development and are very supportive of our requests - e.g. supporting with toilet training.
Thank you so much for being such a lovely nursery.

This month our youngest daughter has been settling into the nursery which we were really apprehensive about, but the staff in the Caterpillar room have been amazing. They have made the transition so easy and hassle-free.
We are so delighted with Greengables and only wish we had moved our daughter there sooner.
We cannot praise the professionalism, friendliness, and attitudes of the staff more and would highly recommend them.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to nursery. All the staff know her personally and her learning objectives. Since she has been in nursery her development, both physical and speech have improved hugely.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone and already have two friends join since we started here.

I have been so impressed with my son's experience at Greengables. All of the staff are incredibly friendly and quickly build rapport with him. They went to great lengths to make the settling in process easy and stress-free and always make me feel able to 'check in' with how things are going during the day. The nursery offers a fantastic range of activities and clearly, tailor those to suit the children's interests and needs.
I am always impressed by the lovely things my son gets up to and the in-depth feedback I receive at the end of the day.

The team at Greengables is fantastic, they go above and beyond for the children and are always happy to help. They are great role models for the children. The atmosphere is positive and it provides a caring, welcoming and safe environment. I would definitely recommend Greengables to anyone, particularly if you value learning through play experiences and young children being treated respectfully as little people where their individual uniqueness is valued and encouraged. A great early years experience, helping to provide a solid foundation for very young children which is all so important for their future health and wellbeing.

Greengables has become a part of our family. All of the staff are friendly, professional and helpful. My sons key worker is wonderful and understands his little nuances and how he likes to learn and play. It's clear they have a solid relationship and that he trusts and respects the staff. He has learned so much, including very good table manners and a better ability to share with others. He has also made some wonderful friends whom we have enjoyed spending time with outside of nursery too. The facilities are excellent, the food is excellent, and the range of activities and toys are brilliant. Toys are regularly updated to maintain the children's interest and reflect what they are expressing a desire to play with. On the rare occasions where I was unwell and needed an extra session at very short notice the team were always incredibly supportive. We feel very grateful to have such a wonderful nursery available to us and we are thrilled that our son is so happy there.

Our daughter joined the Greengables nursery in April'16, at the age of 18 months. She was made very welcome by the whole team and was particularly well looked after by her key worker. It did not take long for her to become very well settled and each day she was happier to go back. Great communication with the members of the staff, ensuring the home and nursery routines are aligned. The Management team and the chefs have taken seriously my daughter's dietary requirements and are more than happy to strictly follow our instructions.
Each day at the nursery, she has different activities that stimulate her development. Our daughter is bilingual and her key worker stresses on an age appropriate language education. She started talking a lot recently and sings new songs every day. Our daughter loves to be messy - at home we do not do body painting or mud pies for example. The messier she is, the happier.
At the end of each day, I see a very happy little girl. That says it all!

We have been using this nursery since Jan 2013. It has evolved, grown character and become a very busy (in a good way) environment for the attending children. The staff are great, the management take constructive feedback on board and action as appropriately. We are very happy with the progress year on year and value the support and path taking our daughter into school later this year. Good work by all the team. Thank you.

Our daughter has attended the Pre School room at Greengables since September 2015 and has loved every minute. She has made some lovely friends and her confidence has come on in leaps and bounds. She has loved the variety of activities and the facilities available to her. The staff are always welcoming and friendly, always making the transition and hand over from parent happy and positive. The children are all well behaved with lovely values. There is great communication from Greengables - you are always kept updated and informed. The food is outstanding, all freshly cooked and healthy. Our daughter has been happy, safe and well cared for in her time at Greengables and is now ready for her next adventure at school.

Choosing a nursery is really hard to do, and coming to the end of a day of 4 different viewings where we weren't sure at all, it was such a sigh of relief to see Greengables. It's very clean, purpose built, but what really made it stand out was the staff. They were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about child development and that first impression hasn't faltered 18 months on. There has been a few minor incidents where I was perhaps a little unsatisfied but what won me back was the responsiveness to the feedback and evident changes made. Five stars, Love Greengables!

My daughter, when I pick her up, carried on playing which is a big sign she is so very happy. She eats well and gets on well with all the staff and children. She rarely wants to go home with me and wants to stay! :) She likes strong (crazy) personalities and will lean towards the staff members who are playful and funny. The staff are very good and get to know their children and are very passionate about what they do. This is music to parents ears who leave their children at nursery.

I am a member of staff at the nursery and my child started, as I did, in August. He is in the Ladybirds room and the staff were so caring to his individual needs which made him settle very easily. There is an excellent menu which offers a balanced and healthy diet which I love, as does my son! The outdoor space is wonderful, and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is met and evident through the children's play and development. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others who are looking for their child to grow up in a stimulating and healthy environment.

I have been using Greengables for over a year for our child care and have always been impressed with the care and interest shown in the children. It has helped no end with my child's development and so I had no hesitations when choosing it for my baby too.
The opening hours are a massive bonus and make our work hours possible !

All the staff have been nothing but professional and helpful not to mention knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend in every aspect.

I loved Greengables the moment I walked in the door - a really friendly and happy environment, which is perfect for what I wanted for my son. They make sure that every child is catered for with whatever the requirement is - my son is cows milk protein intolerant - and this was never an issue from the start.

The girls in the nursery are absolutely fantastic, my son is so genuinely happy to go there. I feel they care and get to know each child so well and tell you exactly what you need to know when you drop off /collect and not just a generic 'they had a nice day'. The work with each child to progress them. I don't have one bad thing to point out. I am totally relaxed when I leave him there.

It is testament that we both work in the opposite direction and we like it so much we won't move him to another nursery.

My son is soon to move up and I know he will have just as much fun in Ladybirds.

I am a qualified nursery practitioner, working at Greengables Day Nursery, where my daughter attends pre-school. The staff are friendly and always welcome my child with a smile. She loves playing outside in the nursery, exploring the nature garden and riding the bikes. There are regular fitness activities, where she can play football. My daughter enjoys playing with her friends and sharing news during circle time. She is so happy and confident, learning in all developmental areas. My little girl will be well prepared for school.
