    The Average Rating of 4.599 for Holyrood Nursery - Media City is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 142 Ratings = 4.599

Great facilities, friendly and welcoming staff, safe environment. Thank you all for taking such great care of my son, he loves the Holyrood Nursery and all the staff. Every day he surprises us with the new things he learned at the nursery which is a great thing at a very early age as well. The staff are welcoming the bilingual children and make them feel equal to others, facilitating the learning of children's first words through practice which is very important to us. Fantastic place. Thank you.

My son joined the nursery in 2014 by recommendation from my friend. All the staff and management helped me and my baby settle in the first few days at nursery. My baby always had a good experience - very friendly people. My second baby has just started nursery and she loves it. My babies are happy and so am I.

My children have been going to Holyrood Media City for over 4 years. The outside space is great, plenty of space for the children to run around, climb, cycle, and they can even help feed the animals! The staff are friendly - my daughter gets lots of cuddles, especially if she's upset when I drop her off.

My DD has been going to this nursery for little more than 6 months now and I can see a real good improvement in her communication and her confidence is definitely being built up, all efforts goes to nursery even though both mom and dad are working.

There are few improvements required,
1. Food - have rated good, only for the fact that we are an Asian family and would appreciate if the nursery could consider some Asian food varieties included in their menu. At times at home it gets tough to get my DD to accustom to Asian food.
2. Resources / Equipment - my DD is the babies room but her ability and her development has far grown to be in pre-school, advice to nursery to include few items that are in pre-school to be included in the babies room.
3. VFM - rated as good, typical Asian thought if prices are reduced that helps :)

Overall I am happy to send her to Holyrood.

I took my daughter out of a nursery that had a better Ofsted rating, and was more convenient for me in terms of location and proximity to my work place and placed her in Holyrood Media City, and it is the best decision I made, as I was very unhappy with her 1st nursery.
The best thing is the staff and the care they give to the children. All the staff that have had any dealings with my daughter have always been very attentive, caring and nurturing towards her. She has always been made to feel as comfortable as possible, and so have I.
They always go above and beyond, and never make you feel like you are asking too much from them.
The management team are very efficient at dealing with any queries, which again makes life easier for me as a parent, and they are also very approachable towards parents and children.
My daughter is fussy when eating at home, but loves the food provided here which is great as I know at least 5 days of the week she is eating a very healthy and balanced diet.

Since joining Holyrood Nursery Media City my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is growing into a strong independent, confident and free-thinking child. She has improved socially and academically already. We put much of this down to the care and attention she received at the Nursery.

The staff are very friendly and the environment of the nursery is welcoming and spacious. They have a large outdoor play area and also a forest with tree house and a few farm animals. They let the children experienced all sorts of activities which is so important for growing up in a balanced way. My daughter loves being there. We never had any problem and my child is dealt with good care and diligence. I would highly recommend this nursery!!!!

We have had one of our children at Holyrood for about 2 years, both full time and part time. The staff in the different groups are overall very nice and supportive. The nursery rooms are regularly changed and the kids have lots of space, including a nice outdoor area. My son loves the food and I believe it offers enough variety and healthy choices.
The area of improvement would be communication. As a parent I have had more than one occasion where I have communicated something to 1 or more members of staff, to later be asked about it because the information was not shared with the other members of staff.
Overall I am happy to leave my children at this nursery.

My little boy has come on leaps and bounds being at this nursery. He loves the staff and and always eats multiple bowls of food they provide. Being freshly made on site was a big selling point for me and they are more than happy to make him something else up if he wasn't keen on the dish provided.
He loves the animals outside and constantly points them out to me when i arrive and sometimes doesn't want to leave as he is having so much fun there.
The staff are so friendly and love what they do so feel extremely lucky my boys have got a place there.

Our daughter loves this nursery. There are pigs, chickens and rabbits so if your child loves the outdoors it's the perfect place for you. They have frequent trips round the area too, and the nursery is a bright, happy place full of light.

The staff are extremely professional and very kind to the children - we feel that our daughter is safe there, and she's always excited to arrive. For us that's the ultimate tribute.

My daughter absolutely loves this nursery. I initially chose Holyrood media city as it is around the corner from my place of work. But not only has the convenience of the nursery prevailed, all of its staff and never ending list of activities are simply outstanding. I have already referred friends of mine with children to come to this nursery. My daughter is always excited to get up and get ready for a fun day with the team. I'll be sad when she has to leave and start school!
