The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for St George's Nursery Edinburgh 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 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St George's Nursery Edinburgh in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 32 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 4.76 for St George's Nursery Edinburgh is calculated as follows: ( (301 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 383 Ratings = 4.76

  • 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 St George's Nursery Edinburgh 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 18 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 nice nursery, with excellent facilities, and very friendly and attentive staff. Our son has adapted really quickly to being left alone, and getting used to playing with other children, and the staff are really accommodating in looking after the individual needs of each child.

This nursery has been fantastic for my son. It feels like a little oasis in the heart of Edinburgh, with lots of outdoor space for the children to explore. The children also access other parts of the school as well for music, PE and so on.

The staff are incredibly welcoming and although new to nursery life, my son settled after a week and now talks excitedly about what he gets up to on his nursery days. I have been impressed with the range of activities that they do with the children, so that there is also something new and fun to get involved with. Such as one week, where they had a camp fire in the 'fantastical forest' and had sausage rolls and another week the children were doing an 'Elmer' the elephant walk (imagine stomp...) around the school.

I feel that they work hard to ensure parents are engaged and well informed about their child's progress and they always have time for you as a parent, as and when you need it.

My wife and I have both been delighted at the care, supervision and environment provided for our 3-year-old daughter.
All of the staff are so warm and friendly and our daughter quickly adapted to her new environment within the first week of her time there. We have been particularly impressed with both the indoor facilities and the outdoor learning environment "fantastical forest"!
We would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to any prospective parents considering placing their children.

My daughter has bloomed at the St George's Nursery. She is growing into a strong independent, free- thinking child. I put much of this down to the care and attention she has received at the Nursery. My experience of the nursery has been fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to others.

We invested a lot of time and effort reviewing and visiting nurseries before deciding on St Georges and one year on are absolutely convinced that we made the best decision and that our daughter will have a great nursery experience followed by a great school experience at St George's.

The grounds and the way in which they are used is superb - the fantastical forest is...well, fantastical!

The effort that is invested in and the structure that is in place around the transition from each stage of nursery to the next and ultimately to P1 could not be better.

Love the focus on child lead learning and the flexible approach which is adopted around listening to the children and taking classes down the roads the children want them to.

The quality of the staff in terms of academic qualifications, relevant experience and personalities is beyond impressive.

- I think St George's School for Girls Nursery is brilliant. My daughter joined the nursery last November, she has been happy from the first day, settled into the nursery daily routine.
- Great outdoor spaces and indoor facilities.
- Keep parents updated about each child's activities in the nursery.

Very happy with St George's School for Girls Nursery.

All staff are nurturing and interested in children's well being. The experiences the girls receive are wide and often relevant. My daughter has been very happy there, has developed well and clearly engages in the activities provided.

I would welcome more outdoor play/learning; I don't think this should be led by weather. Also the after school care is of a much lower standard. Watching television is a disappointing "activity" even more so on lovely weather days.

We chose St G's as we love the size of the school & feeling that you get whenever you approach the school-it is so much more than just a place of learning-there is a real tangible sense of community &belonging all around.

The nursery learning approach is very much child lead & play based. There is a very Montessori feel to the approach but with a mix elements which is a credit to the staff & a reflection of their experience. Classes like baking, ballet, gym days, regular performances, gardening are all about encouraging /developing fine different motor skills. The size & use of the school grounds is superb as they base a lot of the learning on playing outdoors which we love hearing about from our daughter & following in her online learning journals.

Ultimately, no matter where your child goes on to primary school, the time they will have spent at St G's nursery will give them a lot of happy memories and leave them well rounded and ready to start both P1 and the rest of their life.

My daughter has enjoyed a wonderful two and a half years at St Georges nursery. I cannot fault the incredible staff and the amazing nurturing environment they have created. The staff are always so welcoming, enthusiastic and accommodating-nothing is too much trouble. Every day my daughter runs in, desperate too see her friends and teachers, so excited about the day ahead. She has so much fun but at the same time learns so much every day. The children are taken outside virtually every day -sometimes into the on site "Fantastic Forest" (which she loves). We have made life long friends and cannot thank the staff enough for giving my daughter the best start possible to her education.

I have been extremely impressed with St George's Nursery. My daughter has been at the nursery for just under a year (aged 2 1/2 when she joined). I was quite anxious when she joined as her language and communication wasn't as advanced as her bigger sister's had been at the same age, which I was worried might be due to a (only partially diagnosed) hearing loss in one ear.
The staff at St George's were excellent in meeting with me to discuss the issue and agree a strategy to help my daughter if she was struggling to hear in class. As it turns out, she hasn't had any issues and her speaking (and singing!) has come on in leaps and bounds. The staff were incredibly reassuring and always available for a quick chat if I wanted to check up on how she was getting on, and they regularly added photos and short stories to the nursery website so that I could see she'd been up to. I am really grateful to all the staff.

The nursery is very clean and very well adapted for all children. All staff are very knowledgable about your child's needs. The staff are very approachable and very friendly and keep you informed/updated on your child's development.
The Early Learning Journals update is great to see what your child does whilst at nursery and you can see their development weekly.

Incredibly well organised and operated nursery. Nursery nurses are highly professional, capable and of course, caring. They carry a daily log of my children's activities and their personal development has been outstanding. We're only leaving because it is a girls' school and therefore we have to! I have only had highly positive experiences from St George's.

Our daughter started the nursery since last year and we can find her progress every day - mentally as well as physically. First of all, the nursery provides a good environment to girls. The girls can make the most of the forest/field/area around the school. They also often visit the library/music room of the elder girls. Secondary, they offer well-structured, variety of daily activities. The class is diversified therefore the girls can naturally learn different cultures, too. As a third point, they interact well with other girls at Primary school etc. I can see the elder girls take a good care of nursery girls and they connect each other very well. I think it is one of the best advantages for a relatively small school like St.George's - it provides a family atmosphere. The school offers flexible breakfast club, after school care, holiday clubs so I really appreciate such a scheme as a working mother. Overall, I am very happy with the school and my daughter surely enjoys her days.

Our child is in the nursery from 7:45 to near 6 including breakfast and after school club. As we work full time, we are grateful for the length of the care and supply for the lunch (hot meals). The nursery runs holiday club from 9 to 5 for school break. Regarding the curriculum, outdoor activities is one of the selling points. My daughter likes to climb trees. If this were a co-ed school, boys probably would dominate such an activity and girls skirt around them. But this is a girls' school (nursery accepts a few boys) and girls have a chance to experiment adventure. Because they have a primary school annex to the nursery, sometimes teachers and pupils of the school visit the nursery and introduce music and languages. The children can use the indoor facilities for PE and music. The nursery encourages parents to read stories to children. Our daughter has been the nursery for 7 months and she has developed well in terms of mental health, physical activities and dexterity.
