  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nurtured Nursery St Winnow 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 4.849 for Nurtured Nursery St Winnow is calculated as follows: ( (203 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.849

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nurtured Nursery St Winnow 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 9 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.

This is a really fantastic nursery with very dedicated and caring staff. There are lots of different and creative activities for the children to take part in, and the staff are always coming up with brilliant new ideas each week. There's a great outdoor ethos with the children spending lots of time having fun outside. The inside and outdoor spaces are both great. Nothing is too much trouble, our daughter loves it there and is really flourishing. Great communication between staff and parents - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery.

My little boy really enjoys his time at nursery! His key worker is very attentive to his needs and they do so much with him, it's brilliant. He loves being outside and the space is plenty big enough for them to run around in!!

Fantastic nursery! Our son joined at the start of the year and absolutely loves it. Friendly warm staff who treat him as an individual and communicate with us about his day. The environment is relaxed, calm and a lovely natural environment to play and learn in. The food seems to be thoroughly enjoyed by our son and appears to be varied and wholesome. I'm so pleased he is able to go here while we're at work and he seems to be thriving as a result.

Our daughter has been going to the nursery since January 2017, at first she wasn't keen at being left behind but the staff were brilliant and now she loves going. The food is also great and our daughter nearly always has seconds! What I also like is that the children are encouraged to go out play as often as possible.

My daughter has absolutely loved going to Nurtured Nursery for the past 2 years. She particularly enjoyed singing and would often come home singing songs she has learned at nursery. She struggled a little with the change in moving up to the Explorers room but the staff were very understanding and allowed her to go and see the children and staff in the younger room if she wanted to, to help with the transition. The outdoor space is a really nice area for both rooms. It's great that the children can play with water, sand, paint and get messy; really important for them to have fun and also so they get it out of their system before they come home! We really appreciated the excellent home cooked food and variety of snacks. At this age, it helps them so much to enjoy different meals together as a group. Nurtured were also very flexible if I needed to change a day or timings. The learning journey books are a wonderful keepsake. Thank you for such a wonderful start to her learning!

My daughter has been attending Nurtured for some time now and she thoroughly enjoys it. The staff are friendly and every child has a key person who looks after them to ensure stability and comfort.

Ongoing learning journals are kept for each child, which is a lovely way of capturing their development and growth. These are packed with photos and notes as to what they have been up to. As a parent, we get to review these periodically and it always surprises me just how much she has come on.

The range of activities available such as Forrest School, crafts, drawing/painting, dressing up and reading to name but a few, is extensive. When it is warmer there is an outdoor space including a fairy garden which is a big hit with her.

I would highly recommend Nurtured to any parent trying to decide which nursery is best for their child. A final bonus is the flexibility. It is open all year round which is good for routine.

Such a kind, gentle and understanding approach to childcare. One of the most potentially difficult things transformed into the most positive experience when deciding my daughter should start nursery. I feel she is cared for, nurtured and enjoyed in a way that makes us feel secure in our decision. She has an enriching time with the lovely, lovely staff.

I could not recommend this Nursery more. The staff are thoughtful and helpful, sensitive and good fun. My youngest is always happy in go in and has thirds of every lunch! My eldest has grown so much in confidence in the last 9 months since he has been coming to Nurtured Nursery and he has made good friends he will now go to school with. I can't thank you enough.

I have three children who currently attend Nurtured Nursery and we are extremely happy with the care they receive. All of the staff are warm, welcoming, friendly and take the time to get to know the children. They are very professional but also nurturing - a combination which makes you feel confident leaving your child in their care. They are always ready to share information about a child - how they have been that day in terms of emotions, behaviour, learning - and all of their learning is documented really well through their Learning Journeys.
They provide lots of different types of resources and activities and I feel that my children receive an excellent balance to the care they receive at home. I am really grateful that we have the option of sending our children to a local nursery such as Nurtured!

This is a fantastic Nursery and I wouldn't want to send my daughter anywhere else. The staff are all extremely welcoming and friendly and each one knows my daughter very well. We are always greeted with a smile and given detailed information about her day, as well as home diaries and beautiful learning journeys. She spends lots of time playing outside and using her imagination whilst having fun and learning.

Brilliant nursery, with a really lovely team. Great focus on outdoor play and letting children enjoy themselves in a fun, secure environment. Very flexible (even at short notice), which is perfect as a working parent and difficult to find in a lot of other nurseries. Each age group is well-catered for and has dedicated environments to suit their capabilities. A really lovely place for children to attend.

Both my children attended Nurtured Nursery. The staff and management are welcoming and knowledgeable. They demonstrate a high level of care towards the children and encourage them to explore and learn in a nurturing and fun way. The turn over of staff is extremely low and this makes a great difference as a parent. Each key person that my children have had (often the same person) has shown empathy, knowledge and dedication. The staff are approachable and always keen to feedback to parents on what the children have done that day - this makes such a difference!

This is a fantastic nursery and although my child only attends during breakfast club and after school club the time she spends with the team and other children is greatly enjoyed.

By nature by child is quite shy and reserved, however the staff make the environment very comfortable and are extremely supportive as well as friendly. This has enabled her to grow in confidence over the past few months of attending and is somewhere my daughter is really comfortable in going as well as being somewhere she has fun. I equally have 100% satisfaction she is in safe hands and being well nurtured/cared for whilst in the care of the team.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nurtured Nursery. I initially hated the thought of having to send my son to nursery but knowing he is being properly cared for in a homely environment makes it a whole lot easier! The staff are fantastic. They really care about and are interested in the children they look after. There is a great balance between learning and play. The children are encouraged to play outside at every available opportunity which can only be a good thing. The children's food is freshly cooked on site and the menu is varied and interesting. My son generally comes home full, happy, shattered and looking like an urchin- always a sign of a fun day!
