Reviews

9.8 Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.846)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast 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 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.846 for Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast is calculated as follows: ( (350 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 408 Ratings = 4.846

  • 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 Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast is based on 19 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 12.8 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.

I currently have two children in Puddleducks and I am extremely happy with this nursery. The staff go above and beyond in all aspects of the children's care and I have never once worried about my children while I am away. All the staff are friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable about Early Years childcare. The resources available in the nursery are fantastic and I feel they have a huge amount of space for the children - in comparison to other nurseries I have seen. I would highly recommend Puddleducks to anyone who is looking for childcare in Belfast.

I had my daughter in this daycare for 6 months and overall I was thoroughly happy with every aspect of the daycare. I would have loved to keep her here but due to where we live it was handier to have her closer to home.

Cannot recommend Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast enough. The staff are lovely, friendly, helpful and make me feel at ease leaving my wee one there every day without any worries. It has many other good points but the most important is your child's welfare and I never have any worries about mine.

My son has come on in leaps and bounds since starting at Puddleducks Day Nursery Belfast. He loves the staff and they care for him as if he was their own which is phenomenal. I don't have a single complaint and will be devastated when he has to leave. I have nothing but good things to say and I couldn't say enough of them.

Our daughter has been attending the nursery for just over four months now and we couldn't be happier with our choice. It's difficult enough going back to work but the great staff and care that she receives at the nursery has definitely made it easier. She loves her two days a week there and is all smiles in the morning when she sees everyone. Already everyone knows her and we feel part of the nursery. The activities, food and facilities are all fantastic but it's the people there who really set it apart, they genuinely care and are interested in the children. They always make time to chat to parents, giving advice and reassuring you. Our daughter has come on in her development too since joining and that's definitely due to the supportive learning environment and interaction with the other children. Highly recommended!

My son has been in this nursery for a year and a half. From day one, the staff have made my son and me feel right at home in the nursery. It is such a comfort to know that my child is receiving the best possible care whilst I am at work. The attention to detail in Puddleducks' daily menus, the openness and friendly-nature of the staff, the organisation of events for the children and the commitment to safety and high standards have made this experience so very rewarding for my son and the family as a whole. The staff are truly committed and a credit to the childcare profession! I couldn't be happier with our choice of nursery and so I recommend it highly.

My son has been in Puddleducks now just over a year. He is my first child and I have been so pleased to find this amazing nursery in Belfast city centre. I had reservations about leaving him and going back to work but a year on and he has progressed so well, growing in confidence, and has made great friends.

The team are not only dedicated to ensuring all children receive the best care, but they go above and beyond. Through fun and educational activities I couldn't imagine leaving my son anywhere else. Amazing nursery and an amazing team. I have recommended Puddleducks nursery to other mums and dads, they are fantastic.

Awesome = Puddleducks. My son he was just over a 1 year when he started the nursery, attending 5 days a week and not even once has he said that he doesn't want to go. I'm very happy with the things he's learnt there. I strongly recommend for your children.

I can't recommend Puddleducks highly enough. My son started in their baby room and will stay until he's ready to start school. He runs in each morning looking forward to seeing his friends and excited about the day ahead. The staff are consistently great and many of the staff are the same as when my son joined the nursery over three years ago and work very well together as a team.
My son's experience in Puddleducks has set a really great foundation for his next chapter. I can't thank the team enough for the care they have shown my son and the enthusiasm they have for providing all the children with a safe and happy place to learn and have fun. A great team, well led, welcoming and caring who deserve high praise indeed.

My son attended Puddleducks Day Nursery from January 2014 to October 2016. He got up every morning ready and eager to go and see all his friends (staff included). The staff are a wonderful caring team that have instructed and encouraged my son through many of the first milestones eg. walking, talking and potty training to name a few. They have always shown great patience and understanding with the children and parents alike.
It is a fun, safe and educational place for all children to enjoy and peace of mind for all parents knowing their children are safe and well cared for. Diet and outdoor play were one of the biggest reasons we place the care of our son with Puddleducks, the meals are varied and always healthy. The outdoor area is fantastic and the children get out every day weather permitting.

The range of activities, crafts and play are excellent as are the meals offered. Overall, we are very happy at having chosen Puddleducks Day Nursery.

My son and daughter both attended Puddleducks and were extremely happy during their time there. After viewing approximately 10-day nurseries in North and Central Belfast we were highly impressed with Puddleducks. I was very apprehensive about leaving the children in daycare and returning to work from maternity leave, however, Puddleducks were so good, I really had nothing to worry about.
The staff were caring, engaging and professional. My son's accidents from potty training stopped and my daughter became very sociable with other children. Staff communicated the child's day every night at pick up. There were regular emails communicating relevant information. All of the children were happy. I would strongly recommend this day nursery.

From our initial look around the nursery we fell in love with the facilities and staff. I needed to leave our little girl in save hands and ensure she would get the development she needed and everyday would be a fun day for her. The staff are excellent and take care of my daughter as if she was there own. From my daughter starting in Puddleducks she has come on leaps and bounds.
She enjoys the home cooked meals and the different snacks that are offered each day and I love that I can see in advance what's on the menu for her. She is full of confidence and has met lots new friends. I can't recommend Puddleducks enough and I thank the staff for all that they do.

There is no doubt about the Puddleducks is the best nursery in Belfast. My son has been to the nursery, he enjoyed it and he loved it very much.

Very nice staff, caring and loveable. Very accessible as well with pick up and drop car park.

My son has attended this nursery since October 2017. Since starting he has come on so well, his speech, numbers and songs. I am proud of the nursery for being able to provide the best for my childs needs. He eats very well there, I haven't had a day where he hasn't eaten anything! All round an amazing place, the staff are so welcoming in the morning to both me and my son and I feel content that when I leave him, I know he is in good hands!

My son has been attending Puddleducks for 5 months now and we are extremely happy with our choice of nursery. All the staff are very friendly and genuinely care about the children. They all go out of their way to make sure each child is happy and well looked after. The rooms are very spacious with plenty of toys and always clean.
There is also an outside play area and it's good to know that my son gets to go and play outside pretty much every day. Meals are all healthy and cooked fresh which was so important to us.
We are genuinely so happy and relieved that we found Puddleducks as we know our 14-month-old son is well looked after and having so much fun with his little friends while we're at work.

My daughter attended Puddleducks Day Nursery for 1 1/2 years. Throughout that time we felt confident and reassured to leave her in such capable caring hands. The carers are truly amazing with such enthusiasm towards all the children. The facilities in Puddleducks Day Nursery are second to none-plenty of space for the kids to play and explore. They are constantly striving to better the service and regularly request the parent input regarding the running of Puddleducks and they do listen to the parents. We loved having our daughter there and if our circumstances hadn't changed she would still be there. A fantastic nursery!

My children have been extremely happy in Puddleducks and all the girls treat them with respect and as individuals. They are kept occupied with different activities and have learnt so much from their time there.
Puddlesducks helps with the natural progression in children encouraging them to take the next steps without forcing things before they are ready. They have helped my children with toilet training, feeding habits, interacting with other children among lots of other things.
I have no worries while they are there and know they are happy which is the main thing any parent wants.

My daughter has attended Puddleducks for the past 4 years, she has loved every minute, each room has given her the type of care, fun and educational play that I would expect from a first class day nursery.
The nursery teachers are all excellent and give you a run down of your child's day when you pick them up, I really feel like they care about my child. I have felt content and very happy to leave my daughter in Puddleducks care right up to she starts P1 this September.

I literally cannot fault this daycare. Trusting someone to take care of all aspects of your child's needs for 8-9 hrs a day is scary but knowing your child is safe happy and well looked after makes it a lot easier to go to work everyday!!

Puddleducks is a truly fantastic day nursery. My daughter thoroughly enjoys going and can't wait to see all her friends each day. She enjoys a wide variety of activities that are all designed to promote her physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. The staff are brilliant and are highly skilled in early years care and education. I fully recommend Puddleducks for your little chick, gosling or duckling!

The staff and ethos at Puddleducks are second to none. The quality of care our 2 1/2 year old receives is excellent; the curriculum has given her a great boost in her development-speech, counting, alphabet, puzzles, art, group interaction and play. Staff are always friendly and professional, and genuinely seem committed to the children in their care. Well rounded diet provided made on site and excellent convenient location for city centre parents.

The staff at Puddleducks couldn't do enough to settle my daughter into the Nursery since she started in January. Their personal approach to each child is in my opinion unrivalled. My daughter's standard of care is beyond that which I expected and I am delighted that she was able to gain a place in Puddleducks.

As a parent I learn so much about my child's development from the professional staff at Puddleducks. I feel 100% confident that my child is both safe and stimulated. Furthermore, I know that she is lovingly cared for by people who have true, genuine understanding of who my daughter is as an individual. The management team is excellent and very compassionate to parents' needs. Finally, the children seem to have developed a beautiful, friendly culture of playing and learning together under the guidance of the staff. An inspiring place, we're blessed to have found Puddleducks for our daughter.

We found the staff to be very well qualified and caring and the facility itself very well equipped and clean. We had no concerns whatsoever. Going to the nursery was a pleasurable experience for our daughter and an excellent stepping stone before starting with big school.

The level and standard of care at Puddleducks I feel is second to none. The space itself is always extremely clean, tidy and stimulating. Each member of staff is wonderful and they go above and beyond to ensure my son is happy and enjoys a busy, structured day. My little boy loves every minute of his time at Puddleducks and its shows in his enthusiasm when I talk about it or when he is there.
