Grace’s Day Nursery, rated Outstanding by Ofsted, is set in two buildings. Little Grace’s is for 3 month to 2 year olds and Grace’s, in the Manor House, is for 2 year olds to 5 year olds. The benefit of splitting the age groups is that it allows them to ensure that both buildings are entirely age appropriate. Little Grace’s is an extremely light and welcoming building, with easy access to the outdoor play area and is perfectly suited to younger children. Grace’s is set in a beautiful 17th century manor house that has the benefits of not only the beautiful features of a building of its age, but also the sympathetic renovations that have taken place ensure that it is an ideal, safe place to care for children. It has modern facilities in a spacious and bright environment together with a fantastic outside play area. All rooms are spacious, light and fully air conditioned and two large outdoor play areas, along with a large vegetable bed ensure there is plenty for the children to do outside.

The nursery strives to be the stand out childcare facility in the area, employing only the best nursery practitioners who plan activities to stimulate and support the children's individual development whilst also creating a warm and homely environment. Meals are freshly cooked on site each day.

Reviews

8.4 Grace's Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.442)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Grace's Day Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Grace's Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 4.817 for Grace's Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.817

  • 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 3.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Grace's Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.125

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

During the last four years, both my husband and I have been extremely happy with the care, support and wonderfully happy environment provided by all at Grace's Day Nursery Our daughter started at Grace's Day Nursery when she was just 10 months old and has always enjoyed going. Throughout all of her stages, the staff have all contributed to her growth and development and she is now a confident little girl ready to start school.

Grace's has been a fabulous nursery for our daughter, supporting her social, physical and educational development. Fun is at the centre of all their learning, along with developing the children's independence, self-confidence and sense of adventure. All the staff, irrelevant of their classes, greet all the children by name which promote a family feel and encourages the children to build strong relationships with both their peers and carers. I cannot recommend it highly enough and feel it is an incredible environment for our daughter to prepare for her transition to school.

My son was one of the first children to attend Grace's Day Nursery when it opened in January 2011. I knew then that it was a very special place. He stayed there until he went to school. My daughter now attends the nursery and it's still amazing. Both my children love Grace's - as do we. The quality of staff and management is exceptional, as is the care. I have complete faith that my child is being cared for and nurtured whilst they are there. Couldn't rate it high enough.

In the short time my son has been attending Grace's they have been nothing short of fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble & they are fantastic with the children.

Like most children, my son has found being left for the first time difficult but the staff at Grace's have done a brilliant job of reassuring both him and I and he is now thriving.

My twin daughters have attended Graces since they were 9 months old and are currently 3 and half. It is a great nursery, all the staff are friendly, approachable and truly care about the children's best interests. My daughters absolutely adore going to nursery and just learn so much, with each day being different and amazing activities on offer for them to take part in. We will be be beginning to prepare them for school next year and I have every confident that Graces Pre-school will set them up for the best possible start.
