Reviews

9.9 Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.926)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) 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 37 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 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 4.926 for Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) is calculated as follows: ( (413 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 443 Ratings = 4.926

  • 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 Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) is based on 28 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 10 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 could not be more friendly. The nursery is very well managed and centred on the child's needs.
Our daughter always returns full of excitement about her day's activities and her 'friends' (staff).
It's good value for money and nice to have a nursery that children look forward to attending, not just a necessity while parents work.

After being very nervous about my son starting nursery, the team made me feel much better as I could see how well they cared for the children. Everyone is very friendly and kind and always shave time to talk to parents. They seem very up to date with training and knowledge about childcare. I have recommended Footprints to many people and will continue to do so. I don't worry about him (as much as I could do!) in the day, which is great.

Our little boy went to pre-school at Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) until he started school this year. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic.

So when our little girl (aged 1 at the time) started in the baby room in July this year, we were hopeful and pretty confident it would be just as good, and it really has been.

I can't speak highly enough about the staff at Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington), everyone from the manager to the newest members of the team is so welcoming, so committed and there is a real family atmosphere. Staff appear happy and confident and take an active interest in all the children, not just those under their own direct care.

Our daughter is visibly happy to arrive each morning and excited to see her keyworker and everyone else she recognises. It makes us so happy to know she's genuinely cared for and enjoying her days.

I would absolutely recommend Footprints Day Nursery (Bollington) to anyone looking for a warm, welcoming place for their children.

I have nothing but praise for Footprints. My 1st Daughter started in 2015 when she was 18m and my 2nd started aged 16m in 2016. It took my 2nd a little longer to adjust, she had always been more clingy than my 1st, this was made much easier knowing the Footprints team like I did. I had every faith in them to soothe her and give her lots of cuddles and attention, and they didn't mind how many times I called to check up! It wasn't long before my girls were running up the path to nursery hand in hand, excited about their day there.
My eldest is now in Pre-school which she adores, she feels so grown up! She is always telling us about the girls in her room, all her friends and what they've been up to. I think nursery has been an essential part of their development, we can see how much they've come on and love hearing about what they've learnt each week, especially when our eldest speaks Spanish to us! They have fun, are happy and we know safety is a top priority for the staff too so what more could a parent want!

My son attends Footprints in Bollington and absolutely loves going in. The girls are so friendly and make both him and myself feel welcome and he has learnt so much whilst attending the past year. I would recommend this nursery to anyone considering it as it has been the perfect childcare/preschool for my son and I felt comfortable leaving him there for his very first day. My son often talks highly about all the members of staff at the nursery and nothing is too much trouble for them at all. I am expecting another boy and have already put his down for next year to ensure he has a place here too!

I would recommend Footprints Nursery in Bollington without hesitation. The staff are all great and provide a fantastic range of educational experiences alongside developing the personal and social skills of the children in their care. The management team set high expectations which are clearly met by everyone. Every member of staff knows the children individually and can share the activities they have enjoyed during the day. Detailed written reports provide daily information to parents regarding personal care. The online learning book also provides an excellent opportunity to see what the children have experienced in nursery alongside assessments to show their progress. Most importantly, our children love spending their days at Footprints, they are extremely happy and settled which is down to the excellent standard of care they receive.

My little girl loves going to nursery and my little boy, who is now at school did too. When your child runs down the path to get there quicker it gives you confidence that they enjoy being there. The management and staff have become more like friends and I feel that they genuinely love my little ones.

Our daughters have such a wonderful time with you at Footprints. Our daughters are always (every single day) excited to go to your nursery and are clearly thriving. The curriculum and activities that you provide are clearly enjoyed very much and provide plenty of diversity. Perhaps, most of all, the way the Footprints staff are talked about at home and clearly loved very much is the greatest reassurance that we as parents can have that our children receive the best possible care. Thank you.

Can't speak highly enough of the nursery. They did wonders with my first child and are already showing similar signs with our second. What a great start they have given my children, teaching them lessons and giving them experiences they can take with them through their early years in education.

I am very happy with our choice of nursery. My son has only been there a few weeks but is settling well thanks to the friendly staff. The people that work there all make a real effort to be welcoming and to treat each child as an individual. My son is not used to a nursery environment - staff have made sure to greet him when he arrives and to find toys/activities they know he likes which engage him straight away. This helps him to settle into the session easily and means he is happy to be left there. Lovely setting with lots of outdoor spaces for the children to use. Great food- my son eats loads of it and always talks about it when he comes home!

My son has been at this nursery since he was 11 months old (he is now 3 years old) and I have been extremely happy with our choice throughout all the classes he has been in. All the staff have been fantastic, knowing all their children and creating a wonderful, friendly and nurturing environment. This includes the kitchen staff and cleaners, who my son knows too. All the meals are cooked fresh every day. I love that they ensure the children are outside every day too and right from babies, they went on regular walks, visiting the library, shops, play park or fields with animals in. He comes home every night telling me all the things that he has done and learnt, (recently all about China and the Chinese New Year). As well as a great learning environment the location is lovely too, with the trees behind, school playing field in front (that they can use) a fire-station in front (every toddler loves a fire-engine), and a nicely laid out modern building.

I currently have three grandchildren at Footprints, the fourth now being at school. There is always a warm welcome from all staff to visitors and children and rapid recognition of each child and their various carers - there are six possibles in our case! The initial reluctance of one grandchild to be left was rapidly overcome with patience and attention from the staff and all three now actively look forward to going to nursery.

My daughter who is now at school always talks about Footprints, she would love to go back She takes every opportunity to go back and say hello to her friends, the staff! My Son has been a more challenging customer as he has more difficulty settling into the nursery routine but the staff have been absolutely incredible with him and in putting my mind at rest that he is happy as soon as I leave. One thing I love at Footprints is that everyone says hello, even the staff from other rooms always have a smile for everyone. The variety of play and learning is vast at Footprints. My son comes home with a list of new things he has accomplished every time he is there but more importantly than that all the staff in his room have little stories about his day and the funny things he has gurgled or done - this shows me that they really are genuinely spending time with him and getting to know him. I know he has friends all day in nursery and that's what makes Footprints outstanding in my book.

Two years ago my son began in the baby room and is currently in the Toddler room. The relationships he has with all members of staff are incredible. He is extremely well looked after and his development has been superb. He is taken on trips and is given opportunities to learn through a range of mediums.
He has developed social skills and now has strong friendship links with all the children in his class. He has always had a healthy diet, eating a wide range of foods, I think this is down to eating socially in nursery from a very early age. Any questions I have, his key worker happily assists me with. The staff at footprints not only care for the children but also the parents, their support and encouragement is exemplary.
As a loving mother I wanted a safe, educational and fun experience for my son's early years and with Footprints Bollington I certainly get this. My son skips into nursery with a huge smile on his face and talks highly of staff and children. What more could I ask for?

I feel confident and happy dropping my children off at this nursery. Staff engage with them immediately and make the whole process easy and reliable. Every time they get home they have a bag full of creations and a head full of wonderful stories to tell us. I often say that it feels like dropping them off at a friend's house.

Our son has been at Footprints for nearly 1 year now. He absolutely loves being there and is very settled and happy.
He really enjoys playing outside, getting messy while baking or painting and seems to have a genuine bond with many of the staff. We are so lucky to have such a fantastic nursery on our doorstep!

My son has been at Footprints for 6 weeks and I have nothing but praise for all the staff in the baby room. You can tell by the way they are with the babies that they genuinely love and care for them and know them and their personalities/likes/dislikes etc.
We love looking at the online learning book, we get to see all the exciting activities and adventures he has whilst he is at nursery and we are at work. Thank you Footprints for making the transition so much easier for us!

Our daughter settled in quickly thanks to the wonderful staff, in particular, her key worker who was very supportive and sent us regular updates via the Learning Book - this system is well used to communicate with parents. It's great to be able to log-in from work and see what she's been up to through photographs, skills updates and videos.
Since the summer she's been up in the toddler room and has settled in really well thanks to visiting over a number of weeks to ensure a smooth transition. Honestly, she loves the place - we took her on holiday for a couple of weeks recently and all we heard was that she missed the girls - we might as well have booked her into Footprints full-time and escaped on our own...! I can't say enough positive things about the nursery, its management, staff and general ethos.

My son has been attending Footprints for 3 years now and absolutely loves it. I have seen him progress from the baby room to pre-school room and his development has been excellent which I honestly believe is attributed to the wonderful staff and facilities/activities conducted every day.
I feel so comforted to know that he is safe and happy (and soon preparing for the transition to primary school) when I am at work. My 9-month-old daughter has also recently started (3 weeks ago) and has settled in wonderfully with no tears, she is always happy being there and enjoys getting lots of cuddles whilst I cannot give them to her.
I highly recommend footprints to anyone considering a nursery place for their little ones, it is clean, activity based, engaging and the staff are extremely friendly and loving to all the children.

My wife and I have all 3 children in at Footprints in Bollington, and we couldn't be happier with the service. We felt that we had definitely made the right decision with Footprints. The staff are all wonderful, very professional and yet very approachable. Our oldest has made some wonderful friends in the nursery - and adores the staff.

The staff fully engage with the children all the time, there's loads of activity play, little walking excursions to the local area and they always give you an update at the end of the day. They have arranged external excursions which the kids loved. We couldn't be happier - and to end our oldest's time there, they arranged a wonderful Graduation ceremony which brought most people to tears.

Drop off and pickup times are easy and flexible. And the environment is clean, well maintained and secure. We have always felt our kids are in their safe and capable hands and they have emerged from Footprints more confident and prepared for the outside world.

Footprints are second best only to grandma and grandpas and much more organised than home!

If you're looking for a nursery that isn't so big that your child gets lost in the noise, and is small enough that everyone knows you and your child's name the minute you walk through the door, regardless of if they have daily responsibility for them, then Footprints is for you.

The facilities are great, they get outside as often as possible even with the babies - and they provide continuity of care, so your child gets to know the same faces every day. If you have to go back to work, as I did, there's no nicer place to leave them.

We couldn't recommend Footprints Bollington highly enough. The staff are just so wonderfully warm and caring - you feel like they all take a genuine interest, know the children well and can't do enough for them. Both our boys love coming every day. They're excellent at being flexible and tailoring care to meet the unique needs of each child. For example, our eldest isn't a great eater and they proactively suggested implementing a reward chart and are frankly often better at getting him to eat than we are! We have only positive things to say about the fantastic level of care they've provided for both our children.

Footprints have provided excellent care and weaning support to our son who won't drink milk, they have gone above and beyond to make sure they can manage his milk aversion whilst still providing quality care to all the other babies. Our son is visibly excited to go to nursery and idolises his key person. The activities they do seem a lot of fun and our son clearly enjoys them.
