Reviews

10 The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes has a Review Score of 10 (9.983)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.983 for The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes is calculated as follows: ( (176 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes is based on 15 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). 15 Reviews ÷ 6.4 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.

Throughout the years my son has attended nursery. If it were possible I would have my son here past 5 years. This is because I have never once worried about his safety or well-being. The staff are amazing, friendly, welcoming and my son is always excited to be here. His social and mental development is always a priority to The Nest Nursery. When his home life became disrupted the management at the nursery helped him and us above and beyond what is expected. For this I will always be grateful and will recommend The Nest Nursery to anybody I know.

About 2 years ago we changed our son's nursery because we wanted him to attend a setting with a forest school. We have never looked back! The cosy Nest Nursery offers a wide range of stimulating activities such as dance and yoga, our son's favourite class "learn & sign", natural materials instead of plastic toys and computers, and they use the attached school hall and children's centre.
Staff are extremely dedicated and our son loves them. Sometimes he comes home covered in mud, paint and always with a big smile, bursting to tell us about his day and his friends.

Every morning that we arrive, everybody is really friendly and welcoming. My little boy loves his time at the nursery and comes home with lots to tell me. He has a great relationship with each staff member, as do I. I cannot recommend this nursery enough, which I do on a regular basis. Nothing is too much trouble in all aspects of care given. A fantastic nursery!

I have had two children attend the nursery now and throughout this, the staff have been the same - a new face or two. Consistently friendly faces and hard working staff that provide learning opportunities and supportive of children's needs. I would not send my children anywhere else. They are fully involved in helping children and families going above and beyond.

I have been a parent at The Nest for 6 years. My middle son has been there for the past 1 and a half years. He absolutely loves coming here and I'm always amazed when he comes home and tells me all the lovely things he has done. I think a good sign of a fun day is messy clothes and messy hands. My son always has a fun day.

He loves the fantastic garden with mud kitchen and sandpit. He loves painting and the role play area. He loves his keyworker and I can't believe all the different food tries. He and I always tell family and friends about The Nest. It's fab.

My daughter has attended this nursery since she was six and a half months old. She is now 14 months old. The environment is always inviting staff are always caring and patient time is always spent allowing me to get an insight to my daughters day. The outside environment is simply beautiful, the resources and equipment is of a high standard. I would recommend to friends as my daughter has come on so much since attending the nursery.

If Carlsberg made nurseries this would be it. This setting is second to none, providing the children with a safe, exciting, stimulating environment. The staff are passionate about encouraging the children to explore their imaginations and provide them with the skills and resources to do so.
This nursery goes above and beyond in enriching children's experiences by providing a wide range of both in house and off site activities such as forest school, theatre trips, learn and sing and sign. The use of the Tapestry app is fantastic as it allows parents to see and share their childs learning experiences. I am so very grateful that I found this nursery for my children.

The Nest Nursery Pype Hayes is an excellent nursery and both of our children have had a brilliant time there. The staff are very friendly and great at dealing with both children and parents. The nursery offers Forest School expeditions to the local nature reserve and our children have really enjoyed these as they give them a great opportunity to get out and about and be independent. The outside play area at The Nest is excellent, with a wide range of things for the children to do and the staff are always keen to get the children outside, even if the weather isn't great. The food is of a high quality and the staff are really good at getting the children to try different things.
