Reviews

10 Storytime Private Day Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.954)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Storytime Private Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 63 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Storytime Private Day Nursery 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 4.954 for Storytime Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (721 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 753 Ratings = 4.954

  • 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 Storytime Private Day Nursery 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 12.2 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.

The staff have been excellent at settling our daughter into nursery life and making us feel better about the whole thing. We ring up a few times a day to check on our little girl and the staff are great about this.

The staff and management have been absolutely amazing. My daughter has settled in so well, she has been completed supported, as have I. I feel like I can speak to all members of staff about my child's development, well-being and social interaction. I can honestly say I would recommend Storytime to any parents looking for a nurturing, stimulating and safe environment for their child. I can't thank the staff enough for making me feel like they will educate, safeguard and nurture my most precious possession in the whole world.

What can I say, we are so pleased with how the nursery has accepted our son and all the family. We feel like they have gone above and beyond what we expected, all staff are very friendly and very approachable but the best thing of all is our son is happy to be there. Nothing has been too much trouble. Our son has special needs and we can honestly say that these have definitely been taken into account and we have seen a difference in him in the short time he's been there. Thank you so much Storytime.

My little girl has recently started here and I am made up with how they have helped her settle in. I was worried about how she would be as she can be quite shy with strangers but she now loves going and I can't thank the staff enough for helping and making her feel welcome.
I'd definitely recommend this nursery.

Storytime Nursery is a great friendly environment for your children to come and learn. The staff work really hard to ensure they interact with all children equally. I have seen my daughter develop so much within the first 3 months of being at storytime. Due to the range of activities, she does on a daily basis. They make all the learning fun. I would recommend storytime to everyone.

I couldn't be happier with storytime. My little boy is excited to go in a morning and full of chatter when he returns. His key worker knows him well and his ability to listen and share has improved enormously since he started in January.

I have today been to a stay and play session, I enjoy these so much as I work full time and feel like sometimes I miss out on much-needed quality time. The staff at storytime have become like second mums to my son and have become friends to me which is so reassuring when dropping him off, knowing that he is going to be in the best care. I truly feel like my son has grown into the clever, well mannered, confident boy through the help of the staff. Thank you.

Absolutely amazing nursery! All of the staff are fantastic and work really hard. My little boy was only 6 months old when he started nursery, the idea of having to leave him in someone else's care while I went to work terrified me! But after visiting Storytime and meeting the staff I felt so much better.
There are always lots of activities going on and parents are kept up to date with their child's development.

From the moment I viewed Storytime I fell in love with it, the staff where so friendly and the children so happy and full of confidence in every room. My little girl started in the baby room this January and I can say we made the best choice, she's happy and developing all the time. The staff are friendly and professional and you can see that they truly care about all the children, I'm not anxious to leave my baby I walk away happily knowing everyday that she's in a safe environment with friendly staff who I can honestly say she loves as she smiles and babbles from the minute we approach the building. They have taken into careful consideration her dietary needs as it was important that she continued to be baby led weaned and have ensured this has happened and have even given me additional information in regards to this.

My 3 year old son has been attending Pre-School 3 days per week since January 2017 after having been with a childminder since he was 8 months old. I cannot praise Storytime highly enough. In my opinion, this is an outstanding nursery. The experienced and dedicated staff provide my son with a standard of care and attention that they would provide to their own children. They consequently cater completely to his individual basic, developmental and learning needs. My son has therefore progressed significantly in the short time that he has been attending Storytime. I cannot thank the management and staff enough for everything they have done and continue to do for my son. An exemplary team and an exemplary setting.

When my daughter was first shown around the nursery with me I was delighted to see such a clean and friendly nursery. All the girls who look after her are so pleasant. I couldn't be happier with my choice of nursery. I love that at the end of the day the girls stand and talk to me telling me what she has done and learned through the day.

Staff are very friendly and show interest in each child. There is a nice welcoming feel to the nursery. Activities are different each day and my son is always excited to see what he can do that day. Staff ask how your child is each day and are willing to help if there's anything you need advice on.
The nursery has gone above and beyond anything, I could have hoped for to meet the individual needs of my son and I can't recommend nursery enough.

My daughter has been at Storytime Private Day Nursery now for 15 months and they have seen her grow from a little 6-month-old to a toddler who is happy, bright and loving. I feel that her time spent at Storytime Private Day Nursery has helped to shape the lovely little girl she is. She has recently moved up to the toddler room and has continued to thrive and build meaningful, genuine relationships with the great staff team. Well done Storytime Private Day Nursery!

My son ahs been going to the nursery for 12 months now. From being in the Rainbow Room to now the Pre-School Room, he has developed so much. He is more social, making new friends, learning about different times of the year like autumn, collecting conkers and leaves. Involved with the Olympics, making meals and doing their own events. He knows his shapes, colours and is better at counting now. The staff are always helpful and are really nice.

My daughter has attended Storytime since being 9 months old. She is now almost 3 years and loves coming to nursery. She always has lots of stories to tell me about her day. The relationship she has with the staff is lovely to see. She always has a cuddle for them and a smile. Storytime is like home from home for my daughter and I work safe in the knowledge she is happy and well cared for.

Storytime is very welcoming. Staff are always positive and friendly. My son loves coming and has come on so much. His social skills and behaviour has improved so much already and he has made some new friends and talk about the staff when at home, also says what he does and he always has something new to say. He has built bonds already with his key-worker. The garden is his favourite part of the nursery.

After looking at various nurseries in the local area of St Helens, my first choice was Storytime Day Nursery. As a social worker, I have high expectations of what a nursery should provide a child, given the insight I have with my profession. The staff are professional but give a personal approach with families and the care they provide my 11-month-old baby is second to none. I highly recommend any parent considering a Private Nursery to visit Storytime and see what excellent caring staff are available to care for your/their little one.

My son has been at Storytime since he was 6 months old - all the staff who have looked after him have been excellent, caring and have always been brilliant with him. My son has come on leaps and bounds thanks to everyone at Storytime!

The staff are always cheerful and nothing is ever too much trouble. I chose Storytime, after a recommendation, after my first visit 8 months ago, I just got such a good vibe compared to others I'd visited. The induction sessions were great and they worked with my son's individual needs for naps and comfort. He loves going to nursery and gets to do lots of wonderful and stimulating things throughout his three days there. I recommended Storytime to a friend of mine and after one view she now sends her daughter there too. It's a friendly, happy and bright environment and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Storytime Private Day Nursery have been excellent throughout his nursery journey and have encouraged his development at every stage. All the staff have been amazing and we will miss them very much. I would recommend this nursery to anyone who needs to leave their child in a safe and happy environment whist they go to work.

My two girls have been at this nursery since April/May 2013 and I can honestly say that this is the best nursery around in my experience. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and always on hand to help, listen, re-assure and update on your child's progress. My girls settled in really well straight away and have loved every second of their time here.

I was very worried about my son starting at pre school but all the staff at Storytime answered all of my questions and eased all my worries. They made him feel so safe and welcome that he settled in really quickly. I always feel involved in his learning and I'm always well informed of what he's been up to. I could not feel more content with my son being there and I'm confident that I made the right choice in his pre school. Overall I would highly recommend Storytime, wonderful friendly staff and great facilities.

My son has attended Storytime for over 3 years now and was one of the first children to be taken on when it opened. The staff are wonderful, dedicated, friendly, qualified and loved by all the kids who attend the nursery. The manager has brought the nursery on leaps and bounds with information for parents and families about issues which are relevant and interesting. All of the staff from the cleaners to the owner of the nursery are all focused on one goal of making this nursery a safe, caring and educational environment for the children to be in. I am so glad that my son had the start he has had through Storytime and I hope that they continue to be nominated and rated top 10 in the north west in the future.

I have used two other nurseries for my older children as this one wasn't around then. This is by far the best. The staff are fab as is the management and the setting ad a whole. They are great with my son who can be a handful. I will be gutted when he leaves they are all like a second family to him.

I knew from the very first time I walked in the nursery to look around this was the right place for my little girl. My little girl started the nursery at the end of September, she has settled in really well and has come on so much since attending 3 days a week. She has so much fun and I know she is well looked after. The staff in baby room are fantastic, I always feel welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Storytime is a wonderful nursery. The staff are amazing with the children, you welcomed in to nursery with staff greeting you and saying good morning (Child's name) no matter which staff member is greeting you. The staff are great with all the children and make it a fun, exciting yet safe environment for them.
My daughter started off in baby room at around 1yrs old and is currently in pre school in her final year at Storytime and I will be gutted when she has to leave next year as I'm sure my daughter will too. They have made her in to an amazing little girl who is confident, clever and most of all happy.
I would highly recommend this nursery.

My son has been at Storytime since Sept '15, he's now 11 months old.
From day one the baby room staff settled him in and put my mind at rest by taking photos of him having fun whilst I was gone, and giving us a daily diary of his activities and diet - they eat really well!
The care he receives is excellent, I cannot rate the staff highly enough. My son loves them and that says it all for me.

My twin nieces attend the nursery and have done so for over 12 months. They have advanced so much since joining. The staff are friendly, caring and really good at communicating with us as a family and making us feel really involved in our children's education. There are always activities and educational things taking place and there is always an atmosphere of fun! I would highly recommend the nursery and can't speak any more highly of them.

As a parent I am kept up to date on how they get on each day & they both love being there! They do a great range of activities & even have days out to the park or library.

Nice to see my daughter so happy in this nursery, she is settled and loves her nursery family, the staff are brilliant at what they do and they are very friendly. After using a previous nursery and seeing how unhappy my daughter was I made the choice of moving her to Storytime, the best decision I've made. I would recommend 100%, thank you Storytime.

My daughter finished at Storytime in August ready to start school and I would just like to thank the staff in the pre-school room for the excellent job that they have done to get my daughter ready for the big school, they built her confidence tremendously. She will now speak out in class discussions which is a massive step. Thank you once again girls keep up the hard work.
