Reviews

9.8 Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.825)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock 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 41 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.825 for Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock is calculated as follows: ( (410 Excellents x 5) + (71 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 487 Ratings = 4.825

  • 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 Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock is based on 17 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 10.6 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.

Since starting in September my daughter has grown so much in confidence & independence. The staff are so friendly and welcoming that she is so happy to go in first thing in the morning. As a parent, it is always nice to know what your child does throughout the day & the staff do this so well. I am extremely happy with the care provided and I will look forward to my daughter moving into the toddler room very shortly.

My 3-year son has attended the wrap around care offered by Holyrood since September, the staff are fantastic going out of their way to help him settle in and getting to know him so well that they understand what makes him happy and what triggers him to be upset. Their high level of communication means that as a parent I am fully informed daily about my child's progress and routine. The attention to detail from the staff ensures the best quality care and for this reason, I wouldn't choose anywhere else for my child.

My daughter loves going to nursery and has developed so much in confidence and character as she has progressed from the babies to the pre-school room. My nephew also went to this nursery a few years ago & his development and the staff were my reasons for taking my little girl here. The staff are amazing and I would recommend Holyrood Nursery to anyone looking for a place to take their baby/child.

When my daughter started, we were going through some family issues and as we are such a close family we were all panicking about her starting nursery because she's so shy and she distanced herself from other kids. She adapted to Holyrood straight away and suddenly came out of her shell, her speech is amazing for a 2-year-old and they helped me to get her dummy off her, her blanket and nappies at bedtime. She has medical issues and diet issues and it has never been a problem which I was so panicky about. It's truly one amazing nursery the staff are incredible. I'm so happy with my choice of nursery. I've even passed on information to two of my friends.

After a looking at a lot of nurseries and feeling unsure, I visited Holyrood and just got a good feeling from the place. A year later and seeing my daughter flourish and make friends, I am so happy with my choice. Despite it being out of my way for work now, it's worth knowing she's happy and well looked after.

My son loves this nursery, he eats well and has progressed so much since starting there (he's been there for 5 months) everything is documented and they get in touch if there are any problems. Communication is fantastic and I feel like my son is safe there. The staff are friendly and my son loves them.

I absolutely love Holyrood Day Nursery Haydock. The staff there (especially in toddler room) have bought my little girl out of her shell so much. When she started, she wasn't speaking a single word and the change in her is fantastic. Her vocabulary and her confidence have grown so much and it's all down to the fab staff there. I can not thank you all enough. xx

Her confidence and just overall is amazing.

I cannot praise this nursery enough! My daughter loves going and gets so excited! She adores all the staff, especially her key worker! She has come on so much! The staff are all so nice. It's lovely taking my daughter to nursery knowing that she is being well looked after and having a great time! My other daughter will almost certainly be going to Holyrood.

A relaxed and happy atmosphere is created for the children by the staff. My children quickly grew attached to the staff. The facilities and activities available are plentiful and varied. My children eat and enjoy the food served - lactose intolerance is catered for with ease. Good parking and pram dropoff facility. The management seek to accommodate variations in childcare needs as fairly as possible. Very reasonably priced, given the services provided. Thank you.

The staff are always happy to engage in conversation and their personalities overlap outside of Nursery too. I only have 2 criticisms. Firstly, they should be more proactive in advising parents what food the child will be eating daily so it does not conflict with food at home. Though there is a dinner notice board, it is never updated. Secondly sometimes communication is not that great. We have found on a couple of occasions that we take our child into nursery and are unaware of 'special days' eg dressing up in a country's colours etc. Maybe these kind of things can be placed on a notice board as well as Facebook as it is often missed on social media therefore everyone can see them when they take the child in as not everyone is tied to social media. Overall it seems that ideas are implemented on an initial basis but not carried through in the long run.

Holyrood Haydock is an excellent nursery with excellent staff and facilities. My two boys have enjoyed going from day 1. At the moment they are there for holiday club. The excitement they show when they know they are going is lovely to see. The staff are really attentive to my boys needs and they speak of them highly. Whenever my boys see any member of staff outside of nursery they will suddenly shout out their names. (Usually when we are in the car so unfortunately the staff are not aware) The range of activities that they do are really good. It brings out so much creativity in them. Its lovely to see their creations when they get home. Keep up the excellent work everyone.

My little boy currently attends Holyrood in pre-school and has attended since the baby room, he has a fabulous bond with his key worker and I feel comfortable knowing that she is doing the best for my child. My son has dietary requirements and the chef works hard to ensure he gets everything he needs in his diet to help him grow! The nursery is welcoming and all the staff are lovely and make the effort with both myself and my little boy as he arrives and is leaving nursery! I'll be sad to see him leave to start big nursery in September but thanks to Holyrood and the amazing staff I know my little boy has had the best possible start!

My Son starts school in September and had been going to Holyrood nursery for the past 4 years, since he was 9 months old, on a full time basis. We moved to Haydock when he was 6 months old and didn't know the area at all. Finding Holyrood Haydock was such a blessing and made my start back at work after maternity leave so much easier than I feared it might be. The staff have all been amazing and they treat your child like one of their own. I know my Son is going to miss them so much come September. As a parent you know your child is in safe hands and the development of my Son has been brilliant which has only been achieved through the hard work of the staff. I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend the nursery to any parents looking for childcare.

Can not fault it at all and would highly recommend anyone to place their child here.

My little boy has attended Holyrood Haydock since he was 6 months old. He is currently getting ready to start reception. During this time, I have never doubted my choice to place his care with the staff whilst I went back to work. The staff are caring towards the children and have really helped him become the lovely little boy he is today. We have a new baby who no doubt will be attending when I go back to work early next year.

My daughter has been coming to the nursery since she was 10 weeks old and she is now nearing two. She loves it! I have never had any problems at the nursery and they have been nothing but supportive and caring throughout the time she has been there. The chef is amazing and has fully supported her, overcoming her food intolerance's and getting her onto a milk based diet which I would have struggled to do alone. My daughter loves all the staff and children alike. And we would highly recommend our nursery.

Holyrood is an excellent place for my child, their staff are very cooperative and patient with our child and show a lot of interest in their learning and well being. They are adaptive if we need to alter, change or add extra sessions and the facilities and cuisine are very good. Their location is excellent as we live local and there are plenty parking spaces in well maintained and safe grounds. The rooms are large and bright with plenty to do and each room (of which there are 3) for each group has its own age appropriate play area/garden which are also safe and fenced off. They offer a "wrap around" service with the school that they share grounds with which is helpful as we hope to register our child with this school.

I would recommend this Nursery to anyone who is local/interested.

Haydock Holyrood is a wonderful nursery, my little boy has attended since 8 months old and will be leaving to head to preschool in September. It takes a lot for a parents to put their trust in others to look after their children, especially for long periods and at such a young age but Holyrood make you feel at ease. The staff build up an excellent relationship between all children and the parents and communicate well.
They provide some excellent activities throughout the day which allow the children to learn throughout their play. My son has developed so well throughout his time at Holyrood and I believe that is down to their effective practice and open relationship we have built.
I think both myself and my son will be sad when his time at Holyrood finishes and he will miss all the staff deeply!

Holyrood is a fantastic nursery with an amazing team of staff, that work together to ensure that my child's needs are being met through playing in which my child loves to take part in the fun activities prepared each day. My son has been going to Holyrood nursery for just over a year now and he absolutely loves going, he has a great big smile on his face when he sees the staff and more importantly he is happy when I collect him, which indicates to me that he has a good day.
The staff at Holyrood are very pleasant, the nursery also provides a good and healthy balance diet for my child. Overall I would highly recommend Holyrood nursery to others.

Excellent nursery with great staff and a lovely atmosphere. My son has been happy here for three months, and now asks to go every day! My daughter has also recently started attending. I was concerned that she would have difficulty settling, however, a planned introductory program, and the genuine caring attitude of the staff has made the process painless. A flexible, individualised approach to childcare.

My 2 boys currently attend this nursery. My eldest has been there since he was 1 and currently has wrap around care, my youngest has been going since 10 months old. Both have been treated as individuals and encouraged to make choices. I feel Holyrood are very good at supporting children to develop naturally through a good range of play activities. They have both developed very well, this is documented by staff and fed back to us. Both boys enjoy going to this nursery, they always come home and tell me about the food they have enjoyed eating and the fun things they have done. As a parent, I could have endless boxes to tick, ultimately my boys should be the ones to judge how good their nursery is, they're happy so I'm happy.

My son has only been attending the nursery for a few months but absolutely loves his time there. I was so nervous about putting him in nursery when I returned to work but I needn't have worried. The facilities are fab and the staff are so helpful and approachable, my son loves the girls to bits. His learning and play are varied and I'm happy with the food choices as he is dairy intolerant.

My son has been at Holyrood since January and I couldn't recommend this nursery more!
They have made it feel so welcoming and my son has come out of his shell so much since being there, the staff are all brilliant with him.

The team at Holyrood are brilliant. They are very friendly and supportive to you as a parent but also when caring for your child. My child has only been going for around 5 months and their confidence in particular has improved a lot. The transition to each room when your child is ready, is also great and they do not force the child, instead they let the child prompt them. The meals provided by the nursery are very varied, nutritious and fresh. Sometimes any left overs from the day are offered to the parents when picking the child up. The nursery also take the children out on walks when possible so that they can see the surrounding community. The children have a lot of outdoor play which I think is great and other nurseries I have seen don't always factor this in as daily activity.
Highly recommend, lovely staff and nursery.

Our children mean the world to us and that's why many of us find it hard to trust the care of our children with others. Choosing a safe, secure and friendly nursery is top on many of our lists and this nursery not only provides all of the above but the staff always go the extra mile to support children and their families. Most importantly for us, they not only provide an excellent service but genuinely care about the children.

My daughter spent time at this nursery from 10 months old until she started school and still returns for holiday club as this nursery is one of the few that provides a holiday club that suits working families (I.e not just 9-3!).

If your looking for a caring, safe, secure and nurturing place to allow you child to develop and grow then I'd recommend this nursery. While others may look the part they certainly don't have the high quality caring staff this nursery has.

My son attended another setting but only had 48% due to illnesses however now has 100% since moving to Holyrood. My son has also come on leaps and bounds in walking/running, talking and interaction with other children mainly due to his keyworker and all other staff who work with him. We are also happy with his dietary needs as he is dairy intolerant.

Fantastic nursery, my little girl is very shy and at first I was unsure about putting her into nursery, I'm so glad I did she has come on so well and her confidence is growing every day.
The staff are all very friendly and make you feel welcome every time you go in.
They have been great through my daughters illnesses and allergies and have worked with me providing the best care for her.
