Reviews

9.8 Supersaurus Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.762)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Supersaurus 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Supersaurus Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 20 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 4.942 for Supersaurus Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (226 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.942

  • 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 4.82 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Supersaurus Nursery is based on 20 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 24.4 positive Reviews (122 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 24.4 Target = 0.820

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

Both of my children attended Supersaurus from the age of 9 months until they started school. The nursery was excellent in all areas.
The staff were kind and approachable, the food enjoyed and facilities amazing. I never had concerns about leaving my children at the nursery and any worries I did have were addressed swiftly and professionally. My children were always happy at Supersaurus and they both made some great friends.

Always impressed with the staff and facilities of this nursery. They go above and beyond to look after the kids and clearly have a good relationship with each one. I can't recommend them highly enough. My little one loves it here and has for the last 18 months. We will not hesitate to sign up our next one next January.

Supersaurus was recommended to us by a friend with high standards. We intended to see several nurseries but after one viewing, we knew it was the one. Our son has been attending since he was 6 months and is now an energetic 4 year old. He loves nursery and always looks forward to going. It has a calm energy, the children are happy and stimulated. The activities are varied, fun and messy whilst still encouraging development and education. The staff are very organised, friendly, engaged and enthusiastic. My little boy and his key person have a very special and close relationship. I have daily reports on what he's done, played with and his general well being. The nursery is very clean and well laid out. The garden is exciting, perfect for children who are outdoorsy or need more physical activity. There is a dedicated handyman for the 'Saurus' group so it is well maintained. The chef makes a fresh, varied, balanced and international daily menu.
I have always recommended Supersaurus and will continue to do so!

We have been extremely impressed with Supersaurus. Over the four years our son has attended, we have seen the staff take great care over his development.

They have been kind and caring and encouraged him to enjoy learning and develop new skills.

We would definitely recommend Supersaurus.

I looked at numerous nurseries for my daughter, but as soon as I walked into Supersaurus I knew this was the perfect choice. And I haven't been disappointed. My daughter has been here for over 3 years and is extremely happy and settled and I feel confident in her being there.
The staff are fabulous as are the facilities. I highly recommend!

We are extremely happy we chose Supersaurus as our nursery, it has met and exceeded our expectations.
The staff are very friendly and take a real interest in how our son is doing and his development needs, I feel like they genuinely all care.
They always find new ways of keeping everything interesting such as celebrating different events, learning about different cultures and getting visitors to the nursery.

We had heard so many good things about Supersaurus prior to our daughter being ready for nursery, that we were keen to place her there. I'm happy to say, we weren't disappointed.
They provide a very organised, structured, caring, fun and creative environment, that has meant, we have not worried once since she started nearly 3 years ago.
We have seen her grow into a confident, engaged and caring child who enjoys learning as much as playing with her friends. She is so content there, and that's down to the staff being consistently brilliant with all the children.
She will miss nursery when she goes to school in September, but they have given her the best foundation for the next part of her journey.

Our experience with Supersaurus has gone so far beyond anything we could possibly have expected.

Every single staff member, including grounds staff, chef, management, admin etc. is absolutely delightful. Every key worker my daughter has had has got to know her almost as well as we do as parents and I genuinely feel they care for her on that level. They always strike the balance of education and fun beautifully. Dropping my little one off is a heart warming experience - she is excited to see her friends (big and small) and they are excited to see her.

The nursery has been incredibly obliging when we have been disorganised and have had to book her in at very late notice, saving our skins several times.

I would recommend Supersaurus to absolutely everybody. When the Ofsted rating dropped from "outstanding" we were outraged. All the parents agreed that they will always be outstanding to us.

From the minute my son and l walked into Supersaurus I knew it was the place for us. This nursery is by far a cut above any other. From the excellent caring staff, the brilliant activities they run throughout the whole day to the super healthy varied hot meals they provide twice a day I simply cannot fault it. The proof by far though is how happy my son is going there. The peace of mind you have once you drop your child off at Supersaurus is invaluable. I would highly recommend this lovely environment for any child.

Fantastic nursery to send your child. From security and cleanliness to child development and care, Supersaurus is fantastic.
We have been using Supersaurus since 2011 and has been a big part of our and more importantly our child's lives.
Highly recommend.

We could not be more happy with our experience of Supersaurus, Our daughter has been attending for almost 2 years and she absolutely loves it.
I looked around several nurseries and as soon as I stepped foot into Supersaurus it was clear it was a cut above the rest.
The staff are outstanding, friendly, kind and patient and they cultivate a very warm and welcoming atmosphere, encouraging important values in the children.
We are so happy with our daughter's development while attending Supersaurus; it's clear she has fun while learning as she's always talking about new and exciting activities.
The space is beautiful, extremely well-maintained and spotlessly clean, healthy meals are freshly prepared every day.
I would highly recommend Supersaurus - it's such a wonderful place.

Supersaurus is an excellent nursery, I have recommended it to several people.

We have found the staff friendly and loving towards our son, who has a wonderful relationship with his key worker, there is a wide range of activities, both inside and out in their garden.

The only – small – issue that I have is that we can’t go into his room to collect our son. I assume this is due to very limited parking and the fact the nursery do not allow shoes inside. But, I would love to be able to see him in action sometimes.
We can log into the webcam at any time, but it’s not quite the same thing. Although, the webcam is a very handy service and we log in a lot, more than we ever thought we would.

Supersaurus, super nursery!

We looked at a lot of nurseries and Supersaurus was the only one where we could picture our son. As soon as we arrived we knew we'd be happy to send him there, and have been very pleased with our decision. It's a clean, bright space that feels very homely, friendly and welcoming. There's a huge amount of space for the children, which is kept tidy and spotless.

The staff are genuinely interested in our son's welfare and development, and keep us up to date with his day-to-day activities and progress. We arere informed straight away if they have any concerns, and have been proactive in suggesting tailored solutions to help him.

Our only minor criticism (and we were fully aware of this before signing up) is that they don't offer flexibility in attendance - while it's possible to pay for additional days, it's not possible to swap (which some nurseries do offer). Similarly, you pay for bank holidays and family holidays when your child doesn't attend, which isn't the case at all nurseries.

My 2 year old always leaves the nursery very happy, chatty and excited about her day. The other day she referred to her key worker as her best friend, which was very sweet. At home she sings songs and plays games that she's learnt at nursery.

When I first looked for a nursery for my daughter; planning my return to work, I was blown away by Supersaurus. A great space (inside and out), clean, organised, fun, educational, secure - everything I had hoped I would find. Almost 3 years on and we are still very happy with the standard of care and feel as though we are part of a family. I've recommended to anyone looking for childcare in the area.

Both my children attend this nursery and I could not be more pleased with it. When I hear other parents grumble about the nurseries they send their children too I think "Supersaurus doesn't do that". In fact, I don't think I've ever had anything to grumble about. My children love going, always eat well, the staff are great, the building is a good size and very well laid out. The nursery encourages learning through play so well that the children could count and recognise letters and words much sooner than I thought possible. Communication between staff and parents is excellent. Every day I get a summary of their activities, how much they have eaten, slept and nappy times for my younger one. I always get a phone call if something is wrong (e.g. seems unwell) and I'm kept well informed about their progress. I would recommend Supersaurus to any parent; in fact, I did recommend it to the taxi driver taking me home from the open evening as he was looking for a nursery for his little one.

My daughter absolutely loves Supersaurus, she says to me she would like to go every day. She settled in astonishingly well right from the start. I was very impressed with how the staff ensured they had a full knowledge of my daughter's interests before she began and I am always kept well informed of what she has been up to on a daily basis. I am so pleased with how confident she has become there. It is a very caring, vibrant, nurturing place and she is thriving.

Supersaurus has been the most positive start we could have hoped for for our two children. It's warm, inclusive, creative and offers a brilliantly secure learning environment. In short, we love it!

The ratio of staff to children is great and I have always felt my girls have had lots of attention, focusing specifically on their individual needs.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone!
