The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Uplands Nursery 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Uplands Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 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 4.948 for Uplands Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (272 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 286 Ratings = 4.948

    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 4.938 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Uplands Nursery is based on 6 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.938

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

Alison, Admin Manager at Uplands Nursery responded to this review on 22 Feb 2017:

Many thanks for your review. It is lovely to hear that your son enjoys his time with us.

My 3-year-old daughter goes to Uplands Nursery and absolutely loves it. The atmosphere is so relaxed and friendly - it feels very homely and I love the fact that the kids have free flow play. My daughter suffers from speech and language difficulties and the nursery have been so supportive with her about this, they work really well with her speech and language therapist and I feel have been a great help in improving her development.
I love the fact that the nursery is part of the School and that the nursery gets to use their facilities to do things such as P.E twice a week.
Being a working mum I find it really helpful that I get updated on things via SMS, email and social media. The reports are also so detailed and I love that I can view them securely online.
All the staff are truly caring and very patient.

Thank you for your review. It is always nice to hear from happy parents.

My 2 daughters absolutely love their time at Uplands Nursery. They always come home talking about their day and they seem to do a lot of different things too. I have also been impressed by the extra activities and the fact that the nursery children don't get left out of activities that the rest of the school do too. I would highly recommend Uplands Nursery.

Alison, Admin at Uplands Nursery responded to this review on 09 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your review.
Its lovely to hear that the girls tell you all about how they spent their day.

When we first visited the nursery, I was struck by how friendly and welcoming it felt. I also loved the free flow movement of children around the place. Since starting here, my son has absolutely loved coming. I feel he was welcomed as an individual from the start and his individuality has been nurtured. It is very important to me that some of his more challenging traits (such as aggression, spiritedness, wilfulness) are retained and appropriately channelled (rather than squashed) and I really feel that this is happening. The staff speak so positively of him and genuinely seem to care about his little self, his feelings and thoughts. The report they have already sent to me is a wonderful reassurance to me that he is happy and learning with love and joy - very detailed and providing numerous photos of him hard at play. The garden is lovely and he enjoys the free flow of movement inside and outside. A lovely space for a child to start a love of learning and for socialisation.
I highly recommend Uplands.

Thank you so much for your review. It is lovely to hear such positive feedback and to know that your son is enjoying his time at nursery with us.

My son is enjoying nursery. One of the best nursery around Sandhurst. The staff are very friendly and understanding. Very creative outer space and they do PE also, which is my son's favourite, not many nurseries do. Highly recommend it.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad he is enjoying his time at nursery.

Uplands Nursery is a fantastic place and I couldn't have asked for a better start for my children to begin their education. The staff are warm and friendly and really care about the children. They are consistent and always put their heart and soul into what they do. The facilities are great and my children always come home full of beans from their day. The interaction with the main school has worked really well and opens up even more opportunities for the children such as PE sessions, special assemblies, and workshops. Highly recommend!

My son joined Uplands Nursery in September 2015. I had never left him in childcare and was concerned how he would settle in, I had nothing to worry about, he settled immediately. This was thanks to the amazing staff. He even wanted to spend his birthday at nursery rather than Legoland!
The staff are amazing, caring and give each child the attention they need. He has learnt so much and comes home every day chatting about what he has done that day. It has been a perfect foundation on which to start his schooling.
The facilities are great, the rooms are set up perfectly for the children, play areas changed frequently and physical education incorporated into their week too.
I canot recommended Uplands Nursery highly enough. We will be very sad to leave at the end of term but would like to thank the whole nursery team for making his time there so enjoyable.

My Daughter has attended this Nursery for approximately 2 years and I have been delighted with her development and her behaviour since starting. They are just wonderful staff and super patient and good fun, promoting learning whilst playing. They often organise workshops for the children depending on the season and subject they are learning that week. They playground has all the facilities you'd hope for and more for them to play and enjoy being outdoors. The nursery itself inside has an easy flow feel to it and activities placed out for the little ones to look at.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone with little ones and my daughter would run to start class in the morning which shows you how important this nursery is to my daughter.

My daughter has been going to Uplands Nursery for a year, since she turned 3, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are experienced, friendly and very informative. They take the time to get to know the children and this is clearly evident in the termly reports they send out. There is a great variety of activities the children can choose from playing in a mud kitchen, on the slide, with sand and water, to indoor games, crafts and reading. My daughter loves the "set-ups" which change frequently from a vets, a kitchen, a hairdressers to a hospital. The staff spend time working with the children on phonics and writing their name. My daughter is always happy to go and is showing a real interest in learning; she is very proud when she receives a sticker for the "great tidying up they all did". She even got to hold a small owl and see the reindeers, which have been real highlights this year. I have no doubt that she will start reception in September more prepared and confident.

Our son's experience at Uplands Nursery was above and beyond what we expected.
Each day was full and varied affording him a very well balanced education and social experience.

The teachers were all exceptional, patient and caring. Our son spoke highly of each one. He established very special friendships thanks to the nurturing and social environment. He was always happy to go and came back happy each day with many stories of his exciting day. His learning journey was exceptional and it was remarkable to see him recognising letters, sounds, numbers, shapes and knowing so many facts about the world around him.

Our son was very positive about school and learning making his transition and adjustment to mainstream school easier.

We highly recommend Uplands as an exceptional choice for anyone who wants to ensure their child is prepared for school.

My twin girls went to Uplands Nursery from Sept 14 to July 15. Both my husband and I were immensely impressed by the service provided. Each day was structured whilst maintaining the 'fun' element for the children. The teachers genuinely care for the children and provide a wonderful environment for their introduction to learning. Both my girls, young for their school year, have started reception leaps ahead by knowing their phonics, alphabet and a good grasp of how to hold their pencils to form letters and words. They were both on reading books within a month of starting school. We have nothing but positive praise for all that worked at the nursery and thank them for the fantastic start they gave our girls.

I have been hugely impressed with both the set up and staffing at Uplands Nursery. My boy joined them in September, very nervous and had real issues with separation. His key worker helped patiently to get him settled, going beyond, I'm sure, her expected duties. Drop off went from being hugely stressful for us all to happy & content within a few weeks. My son is very happy there and knows all the staff well and feels confident and comfortable going in. Some days he gets cross that it's the weekend!

The flow of the rooms works well for individual choice play and I think there are great opportunities for shared experiences also. Additionally I love the reporting system giving you a real birds eye view to what our cherubs get up to.

My daughter has been coming for over a year now, I think the staff are absolutely amazing. She loves coming to nursery everyday. Everyday is an adventure, which I can't wait to hear about. I'm so pleased with the progress she has made. The Learning experience and care she has had, has been outstanding. She is always very motivated on reading and writing at home. I also think it is great that we as parents have the support from the teachers if needed.
I will be so sad when she leaves, as we are not in catchment, so unfortunately she will not be going through to the school. However I truly believe that the learning experience starts from the bottom and I'm so happy that she has had the best start given to her. I'm 100% confident that where ever she goes onto next she will have a great start.

The nursery is, in my opinion, a perfect first step into schooling. The staff are amazing, always approachable and it's very clear that they care about each and every child; whilst also understanding how important their role is at the beginning of so many children's learning journeys.

My daughter didn't settle in immediately but the staff were very supportive to both myself and my daughter to help us through it - I now have a happy girl who looks forward to seeing her friends and telling her teachers about all the things she gets up to on the days she doesn't attend the nursery.

Uplands nursery is by far one of the best I had visited in the local area before submitting my application. The staff and learning environment are second to none. The staff are welcoming, friendly, approachable and happy to meet your needs and that of the child. My daughter has been attending Uplands since April 2015 and is excited to go to nursery and comes home raving about the learning and fun day had. Uplands nursery has exceeded my expectations by far and long may this continue. I cannot thank Uplands enough for the foundations laid for my little ones learning pathway.

Uplands is an outstanding nursery that goes above and beyond when it comes to the care of my daughter. My daughter has been at Uplands since she turned 3 over a year ago. She can sometimes be very insecure, but all the staff here are excellent, and make me as a parent feel confident in the occasions I leave her crying!
She has developed emotionally, physically and academically since starting at Uplands. She is a very independent little girl. I have no doubt that a lot of this is down to the nursery.
The nursery itself is only 18 months old, and is therefore very bright and modern. It has 2 lovely big rooms and a huge outside play area which is used all year round. The nursery is attached to an outstanding school, and the nursery children are lucky enough to be able to use the school's facilities for Cooking and PE. They are able to watch the school plays and take part in their activities.
I would 100% recommend Upands to anyone looking for a nursery in Sandhurst.

I have found Uplands to be excellent through the teachers with my daughter. They have had so many activities through meeting reindeer at Christmas time, to going to the theatre to see Cinderella. My daughter has come on so much through talking and now writing her name and counting.
I like the nursery because they meet with the school, I feel my daughter will have no transition when starting school this September.

Liz joined Uplands in 2014 and has enjoyed supporting Year 1 and teaching in Reception class. Liz is very pleased to be a part of the Nursery team. She loves learning through outdoor play, whatever the weather, and will probably end up messier than the children!
