The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Happy Days Nursery - Exeter is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happy Days Nursery - Exeter in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.896 for Happy Days Nursery - Exeter is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 3.378 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happy Days Nursery - Exeter is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.128

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

My daughter has settled really well at Happy Days. She really enjoys nursery and sings songs about the staff on the way there. We get a handover at the ned of the day (verbal and written) and this is really helpful. I am very happy with the care provided by the team.

Happy Days is an amazing nursery. The staff are all wonderful and very friendly. I love the layout of the rooms and the range of activities they do with the children. I know they are taking the best care of my little one.

The food is also worth noting that it looks really good and my little one is eager to tell me what they had eaten that day.

When our child first started nursery, every single member of staff made sure that she had an extremely positive experience. This meant that she settled really quickly. Now, nearly 6 months on, the staff at Happy Days Exeter have provided such a caring, supportive environment, that every time she comes home she seems to have learnt something new! The meals they provide are 5*, our child always eats everything as she finds it so tasty! When you arrive in the morning the staff are so welcoming that it immediately puts you at ease about leaving your child. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone as I truly credit the work they do with helping our little girl develop into a confident, chatty and well-behaved toddler!

My daughters experience has been fantastic over the past few years here. The activities on offer are varied and engaging for the children. The staff are friendly, positive and knowledgeable. The nursery is very clean and the use of space with area sectioned off but still offering an open atmosphere is lovely. The children seem to be able to come and go outside to the garden area which is safe and supervised. The menu and food variation is incredible and very healthy. My little girl always comes home very happy and I feel her start in life at this nursery has been great. Can't fault it!

We are so pleased with our choice of nursery. Our little boy is so happy there, he is always keen to go and runs up to the door. The environment is stimulating without being overwhelming, it is spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly, engaging and informed. The children genuinely seem to be at the centre of the nursery's ethos. Physical and mental needs are met, children have access to outdoor play areas. The food is prepared and cooked on-site and has really helped develop our boy's appetite and table manners. We couldn't be happier and would strongly recommend the team at Happy Days Exeter.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since Sept 2015 and loves it. She goes three days a week and couldn't be happier. Her speech is amazing for her age and learns new things everyday. Always lots of different activities for her to do and she loves to play out in the garden as much as possible. Excellent facilities inside and out. Friendly staff who have really got to know and bonded with my daughter. I look forward to picking her up and hearing all about what she has been up to each day. Healthy meals and snacks are really good too.

We have been really happy with the care our daughter has received at Happy Days Nursery - Exeter. The team are really welcoming and know our daughter really well, I'm always impressed they remember the smallest detail and the names of all her teddies! Our daughter has eczema and allergies which are really well managed by her key worker and the wider team. I know she is well looked after and doing fun and new activities on her days there. I would highly recommend it to parents looking at their childcare options.
