Reviews

9.5 Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.506)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 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 4.847 for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.847

  • 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 4.659 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0.909

  • 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 started attending Nuffy Bear Day Nursery over the summer of 2017. I decided to move her out when I moved school for my older one - it meant drop off at one location. I very quickly realised that that was the wrong decision.
My daughter has not once complained of any of her basic needs being overlooked. I appreciate this can happen when caring for many kids at the same time. But the staff are attentive. I am also quite pedantic about nutrition. I mentioned this to the Manager on the first day, and that I might be picky if diet isn't well balanced. I have had no complaints. I can confirm it's no less healthy compared to the diet I provide at home.
I have decided to stick it out with Nuffy Bear's because it gives me peace of mind. I'm sure other nurseries have far more equipment and higher OFSTED ratings. But what matters most for me is a team of warm, experienced and attentive carers who can make nursery feel like a second home. Thank you for all your hard work and positive attitude!

H. McGourty, Social Media Executive at Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Tunbridge Wells responded to this review on 28 Sep 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to review our Nuffy Bear Day Nursery. We are also pleased that you daughter remains within our nursery and that she is enjoying herself with us. Peace of mind is everything when it comes to your childcare needs. Kind regards ^HM, Nuffield Health.

I am so pleased I found Nuffy Bear! My son has been coming since Nov 2016 and I am so happy with everything about the nursery. The staff are amazing and really understand my child's personality and individual needs. He has been having NHS speech and language sessions following our GP's referral, and this has been fully supported at the nursery. I have noticed a huge improvement with him and cannot thank the girls at the nursery enough.

They provide healthy snacks and 'home-cooked' meals that my son loves. When I go to collect him, I am told what sort of day he has had, what activities he has done and how much food he's had (usually he eats everything!)

The staff always have time to talk to me if I have any questions or concerns, and I always feel they have spent enough time with me.

We are planning to send my daughter here when she is older and would recommend Nuffy Bear to anyone.

We love this nursery and our son has been very happy here over the last 18 months, starting in the baby room and moving on to the main room. All the staff are brilliant, very welcoming and professional. They work hard to find activities each child enjoys and to adapt learning activities to suit their interests. The meals are good and the children are encouraged to try different foods and to sit nicely together at mealtimes. Highly recommended!

My son has been using this nursery for 18 months now and is the happiest little man when here. Most mornings, (when not in a hump) he runs straight to the doors and can't wait to get in and play. The style of care doesn't just mean play but it involves learning in a way that the children have fun and know boundaries. They are constantly kept busy and entertained too.
My son has had lots going on since being at this nursery. We have had to deal with a food intolerance that we could not get diagnosed. Between the girls and myself, we have diagnosed his intolerance and the girls have made sure that he has no gluten in his diet now. They spent several months writing a food diary for us to use when having tests which is something that I am very grateful for.
The girls are always happy to listen if you have any questions or problems and will help in any way that they can.
I have recommended this nursery to friends and mums at my daughter's school and will continue to do so.

My two youngest children have been attending the Nuffy Bear Nursery at Nuffield Health, Knights Park, Tunbridge Wells since it opened earlier this year (2015). Both children absolutely love their sessions and look forward to going to nursery enormously, chatting about the staff and activities far more than they talk about anything else they do outside of nursery! The children seem genuinely disappointed when it is not a nursery day! I have found the staff and nursery manager to be wonderfully caring and enthusiastic. They really do go out of their way to keep the children well occupied and ensure the children have a varied timetable of activities. Overall I am delighted with the children's reaction to and progress at the setting and these thoughts are echoed by my parents who have collected the children on occasion. Knights Park Leisure Park is convenient to get to and there is always plenty of parking. My one reservation before enrolling the children was the relatively small outdoor space, but this has not been a problem. The children get outside plenty when weather permits and as the nursery itself is quite large and they also have use of other space within the Nuffield building the children still get plenty of physical play even when it is raining. Over 3's also have swimming lessons at the Nuffield pool. And did I say how lovely the staff are...?
