Reviews

9.9 Adorable Nurseries Ltd has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.860)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Adorable Nurseries Ltd 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 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Adorable Nurseries Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.86 for Adorable Nurseries Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (218 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 250 Ratings = 4.86

  • 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 Adorable Nurseries Ltd is based on 17 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

Based on my daughter's improvement and safety I would say this nursery is by far the best nursery and my family is very grateful for the services and making her feel welcome. She made lots of new friends and she has become so confident, speaking, playing with others and learning.

This nursery is fantastic. All of the staff are kind, caring and very approachable. They make sure every child is looked after and has fun.

The outside area is what attracted me to this nursery. My child loves the outdoors and she loved their garden space. The garden area is always tidy and available for the children in all weather.

The inside of the nursery is also great, with a lot to offer for the children to play and learn.

Adorable Nurseries has the potential to be amazing but the inexperience of some staff and how to get the best out of the child's development is inconsistent. If they don't like the food they are not given anything else automatically, I had to ask for this. I love the fact the food is varied and they experience a range of tastes.
There are some phenomenal staff, particularly my daughters key-worker, who ensures my daughter is happy, learning and engaged but there is a need for training for consistency for other staff who have fed back to me. The rooms are now far too small in the younger years. When my daughter started she had the delight of roaming the entire floor downstairs but as they have accepted more and more children she is now confined to the small room at the back and the garden obviously (which is fantastic). Perhaps I'm a one off but my daughter informed me of incidents which they haven't. The manager is extremely helpful and quick with correspondence.

Sue, Nursery Manager at Adorable Nurseries Ltd responded to this review on 10 Jul 2017:

Thank you for your review. The nursery employs 16 members of staff -11 staff members are qualified to level 3 in Early Years, 1 member of staff has a degree and the manager has an early years teacher status. The nursery does support students on the apprenticeship pathway who are undertaking their level 3.

The nursery operates within the recommended room size downstairs and the rooms are now split as the nursery now has a room for babies and one for toddlers. Our room sizes are 9 children in the baby room and 12 in our lovely garden room. The garden room has access to outdoor play all day - this enables the nursery to extend the children's learning safely as they can be more age appropriate.

The nursery is warm welcoming and considerate to all who enter. It is clear they make an effort to support all types of families with different religions or with specific needs. All the staff are caring and happy every time we see them and this reflects on our child who comes home with stories and happy news when asked how her day was.
The activities organised provide imaginative daily fun. My daughter comes back in a positive manner which tells me she is looked after appropriately. They update us with newsletters and are approachable if we had any issues. They organise well the summer nursery fete making good use of meeting other families whose child attends the nursery.

This is by far the best nursery I have used (out of 5 for 3 children). The children of all age ranges are always so happy to go in, very rarely do you see an upset child going in to nursery in the morning. It's has a wonderful atmosphere and fantastic curriculum and everything is centred around the children and their wellbeing. The staff are wonderful and very approachable, supportive and professional.
Any child would be lucky to spend their early years in such a secure, safe and happy environment. Well done Adorable Nurseries!

Great nursery. I cannot fault it. Lovely staff and facilities - particularly a fantastic garden for the children to play in. The food is varied and according to my son very tasty. I receive full reports online as well as after each session along with regular parents evenings on the activities my son participates in and how he gets on with them. He has come out of his shell since starting and has made some good friends.

Both my children have been through Adorable Nurseries, currently, my youngest is attending in the Starfish room.
The care is amazing all staff make you feel confident to leave your child with them, creating activities that stimulate them.
The only downside is they need to expand, it would be great to offer more places.
The outside space is great and can be used in all weathers, would be excellent with some space.

Fantastic Nursery which we are delighted has opened on our doorstep in Stony Stratford. Lovely, well-resourced setting with a large, multi-sensory garden out the back.
Staff are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic, they are available to liaise with at the beginning and end of the day.
Parents are kept well informed about their child's progress and activities through weekly newsletters, an online Learning Journey (which parents can add their child's home experiences to) and regular parents evenings.
The opening hours are really useful for full time working parents. We have been very happy with the care and feel our son is left in safe hands.

This nursery is fantastic! I have nothing negative to say about it at all! The rooms are clean and bright with lots of different toys and activities for the children play with.
The garden is just amazing! They grow vegetables and fruits I couldn't ask for more.
The food they have is great a wide variety of different meals. The staff are amazing always around for any questions I need to ask, very informative and they have a great relationship with my son.
My son had come on leaps and bounds since starting, I've truly never seen him happier within the setting!

I have sent my two children to Adorable since its opening in 2015. I have used other childcare provisions (nursery, Preschool, childminder) but Adorable is the best setting by miles in my experience.
I'm happy to pay extra for this wonderful nursery experience than to compromise with childcare that I'm not 100% happy with (as was the previous case).
Adorable staff are delightful, my children genuinely enjoy their company and only speak positively about all staff. The Manager is always helpful, friendly, very personable and knowledgeable.
They use Tapestry and regularly share details and pictures of my child's activities. They helped with my eldest's transition to school by teaching her phonics and lending her reading books to bring home to encourage her desire to learn. Via a weekly newsletter we know in advance topics and activities the children will be doing the following week, and they are always so busy every day! The children always have great fun, and they love the garden area!

An extremely caring nursery. Very friendly knowledgeable staff.
They go out of their way to help and ensure the children are happy and stimulated.
The outdoor area is just a fantastic place.
We especially love the mornings that are opened up to the parents for fathers/mothers day which is an insight into what the children do and the fun they have.

My children have been attending Adorable Nursery for the last eight months. From the very first day, I was very impressed with the service the nursery provides. Our boys are always very excited to attend. From the feedback I receive from staff and my children I am confident that they have great opportunity to play, learn and socialise.
Nursery staff are always approachable and keep me well informed about my child progress. My children's key person is knowledgeable about my child. The nursery very happy that they have an outside chef. Overall, I am very happy with the quality of care and support my children receives.

My daughter has been at Adorable Nurseries for half a year now and clearly loves it. She is happy to be dropped off when we arrive in the mornings.

Her development is blossoming through the mixed experiences offered at nursery. The staff all seem nurturing, engaged and positive, so I feel sure that my daughter is stimulated and fulfilled during her sessions there.

The levels of communication and security are great, and I feel confident in the care the team provide.

My daughter has been attending Adorable since September 2015 and absolutely loves it. She is very fond of her carers and runs in the door every day thus enabling my husband and I to go to work secure in the knowledge that she is happy and well looked after. The facilities are second to none and the learning opportunities endless. I would highly recommend this nursery and feel very lucky to have it in Stony Stratford.

The staff behave respectfully and offer as much help as needed. We have felt well cared for and they cater for individual differences amongst the children. Our daughter had a tough beginning at the nursery, we had recently arrived from Australia and all that was taken into account at the nursery. Making sure that we work together, staff and parents, in meeting the goals to ensure the kids well-being and happiness within the environment.

From day one Adorable Nurseries have been magic, they have looked after our son with the same care and attention I as a parent would if I could be at home with him. They all treat him and every other child as though they are one in a million and it is just them in a room and yet they manage to do it for each child in a busy nursery. Totally impressive to watch and I'm thrilled that my son is a part of it. He isn't ignored and is being allowed to develop in his own unique way as all children should. If he doesn't like any of the food he isn't left to starve they find him something else to eat. Since Adorable nurseries have opened it has been an incredible journey for my son and would recommend them.
