  • 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 4.949 for Giant Leap Childcare & Forest School Kindergarten is calculated as follows: ( (466 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 489 Ratings = 4.949

    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.

    The 4.92 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Giant Leap Childcare & Forest School Kindergarten is based on 32 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 34.8 positive Reviews (174 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 34.8 Target = 0.920

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

He has been a part of all the rooms and all the staff have helped him grow and become the child he is today. I would recommend this nursery to all. Thank you again, Giant Leap x

Our son is flourishing day by day. He is supported in his learning & we are supported in our decisions about him as parents.
He ADORES going to nursery & talks endlessly when we collect him about his day & his friends. We are updated on his day through the online systems & can see pictures & messages easily.
The staff are accommodating, friendly & I trust them explicitly with my child. Honesty & trust are necessities in childcare & these are present throughout.
Our son has been at the nursery since October 2015 & we have not once doubted the care, support & fulfilment he is receiving. He has made friends (& I have too through the other mums).
The outdoor play areas are exceptional; safe, full of fun & activities & accommodate the appropriate level of learning through play. The food & meals are fresh, I have seen this with my own eyes & our son eats without any issue.
He is allowed to play & 'be a boy'. He comes home happy, filthy & tired!! Just how I like it!

I started bringing my daughter to Giant Leap when she was 6 weeks old to attend the baby group. She's now 2.5 years old and attends the nursery in the mornings, the staff are lovely, very welcoming and take an interest in our family's wellbeing as a whole.
I have a 9.5 months old boy as well who I hope will also attend the nursery.

My son loves kindergarten here. He enjoys being able to go outside when he wants to and has fun exploring and building around the school. His imagination is fantastic and this is because he gets the opportunity to use this is his play and make up all kinds of stories around the woods and the dens. Cooking mud pies in the mud kitchen is a winner, as is chasing spiders and other bugs. Plenty of animals to see too, and he always comes home happy, full of stories and very tired! Not the cheapest in town but worth every extra penny. If your child likes being outdoors or using imaginative play then this is the place to be.

My daughter started at the beginning of November and we couldn't be happier with the nursery and staff so far.
Our daughter was initially upset and worried about the new experience (as were we as parents!) but every single member of staff has been friendly, helpful and really made us all feel welcome as a family. In the early days, we were encouraged to ring whenever we wanted to see how she was getting on.
In the short amount of time she has been there, we can already see progress with her development.
She has already built a bond with her key worker and we look forward each day to hearing what she has been up to.
We look forward to the next few years and watching her grown and develop with Giant Leap.
Overall, the nursery and staff are first class!

My little girl started at Giant Leap in September and I can't recommend enough.
The staff are lovely and always remember her name which means a lot.
I work shifts so the flexibility of the nursery is fantastic.
The thing I like the most is the little touches such as when my little girl was off poorly a few weeks ago, the class made her a card and posted it to us.
Fabulous all round service.

Giant Leap is excellent throughout; the staff are very approachable, friendly and make the daily experience a lot easier. My two girls have been here almost a year now and they love it. They have both come on leaps and bounds; physically and cognitively. It has been the perfect nursery for my girls, their 'key workers' are excellent and it is reassuring knowing the quality of the staff is consistent throughout. I would personally recommend Giant Leap to anyone.

Giant Leap is excellent. The level of care shown by each and every member of staff exceeds expectations regularly. The facilities on site are spectacular. The equipment for the children's use is always clean and tidy. They go above and beyond with including children with additional needs. There is always a wide variety of activities available for the children. Food and drink provided for the children are always of the highest standard. Best nursery around by far. I cannot praise them enough.

My son started Giant Leap at the beginning of September 2016. Not only is it a friendly and welcoming nursery but it is in my eyes one of the best which I have seen. The range of facilities which they have available for children is outstanding. My son has developed incredibly within the three months which he has attended this nursery not only because of the above but because of the staff and his key worker. He has built some great bonds with staff and children here also. I would definitely recommend this nursery to relatives, friends and the general public! Brilliant nursery.

My child's nursery is exceptional with the standard of care it provides for my children. It also runs workshops for parents and carers too. I have completed a child and baby first aid course and attended a school readiness workshop at my child's nursery. There is baby play groups, toddler play groups and parent stay and play sessions. They are always striving for improvement though and the staff are always friendly and welcoming.

Brilliant nursery! Would defiantly recommend! My little boy has come on so much with his speech and eating and absolutely loves going! He started nursery when he had just turned one and is now 18 months! He has learnt to walk, count, animal noises, general understanding and his speech is amazing! All the staff are always really nice and approachable and make me feel as though my child is in safe hands.

My son loves this nursery. He has attended since he was 18 months old and has progressed in leaps and bounds!
Great facilities, friendly and approachable staff who always go above and beyond. The Forest School is amazing! He loves being in the outdoors and comes home with stories of his adventures of the mud, tools, the campfire and the rabbits! The food and menu provided is wonderful. A great variety and there are even copies of all the menu recipes you can take!
We couldn't be happier. Don't hesitate - go and take a look for yourself!
