Reviews

9.8 Sunny Days Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.754)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Sunny Days Nursery 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunny Days Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.754 for Sunny Days Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (177 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.754

  • 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 Sunny Days Nursery is based on 11 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 1.000

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

Thank you so much for review Sophie we love having you and your girls at the nursery. We are constantly reviewing and improving our services and it's good to hear the excellent feedback. Best Wishes

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The young girls always make time to talk and say how my little boy is going, he is progressing really well and I'm really pleased.

My daughter has been at the nursery for 1.5 years and is now leaving to go to school. The staff are very caring, professional and communicate well with parents.
The outside space is amazing, colourful and to be able to use the local soft play also helps to keep the children fit and happy.
The menu is great and varied, my daughter has been very happy here and has made some great friends. I'm sure she will miss all the staff.
I highly recommend Sunny Days to everyone.

I am so happy that we made the decision to use Sunny Days as our daughter's nursery. The transition period starting nursery could not have been made easier for both my daughter and myself! As the weeks have gone by her confidence has grown, no tears at drop off now, this is down to the lovely, friendly, caring staff who really make the effort to ensure she is settled from the moment we walk through the door. It makes my working day so much easier knowing my daughter is happy and enjoying her time there. Everywhere is very clean, tidy and well organised, all activities are so enjoyable. I love her diary that gets filled in each week showing her activities of the day, progress, her meals etc... The food menu is great, my daughter eats ALL of it without fail!
I couldn't recommend Sunny Days Nursery more highly.

My son has been attending this nursery from when it first opened. He is really happy there and loves the facilities. The use of the play dome for the children is a real treat. What child would not like to have a great soft play facility at their own nursery! The nursery is run very well and the staff are great. Would highly recommend to anyone.

We have found Sunny Days a lovely nursery, it is very clean and the space/set up is fantastic giving the different ages their own areas. Outside is excellent. The staff are always friendly and informative. My daughter is about to turn into a pre-schooler and I hope that the nursery gives them a chance to be well prepared for school, they already do lots of singing which my daughter loves. I would like to see the food/menu to have more variety with different flavours and a noticeable emphasis on nutrition - perhaps the menu could be communicated to parents.

I am very happy with the care that my two children receive at Sunny Days.
The staff did all that they could to ease the transition period to starting nursery.
My children are well fed and well cared for, they just love coming to nursery and don't stop talking about their friends and the staff at home.
It was the best decision for us.

Marie Cooper, Childcare Manager at Sunny Days Nursery responded to this review on 30 Jun 2017:

Thank you for such a lovely review Liz. We will miss your daughter when she leaves for school but we will still see you when you collect little one.

My daughter started at Sunny Days a year and a half ago. She goes full time and has a wonderful time each day. The staff are fantastic, so friendly, caring and nurturing. They take great care of her and keep track of her development and progress, notifying us of everything and anything, they're great communicators! The nursery itself is well equipt, clean, bright and welcoming. The food and range of meals are fantastic, you know your little one is getting a variety of good quality, healthy food each day. I couldn't recommend them more highly!

Marie Cooper, Childcare Manager at Sunny Days Nursery responded to this review on 30 Jun 2017:

It is great to see how much she has grown in confidence and we value your commitment to our social events at the nursery and the sharing of information on a daily basis.

We have been incredibly impressed by the high standards at Sunny Days - from the time given to us as parents when choosing a nursery, through to the day to day care given to our child. Since joining Sunny Days, our son looks forward to and enjoys nursery, and this has had a positive impact on the whole family. His confidence has grown enormously and his communication skills, both with adults and other children have developed no end. We are able to leave our son at nursery and go to work, fully confident that he is receiving the best possible care from competent, caring and friendly staff.

Thank you Scott for your review. We are so glad you are happy with the care we give here at Sunny Days and we feel so proud of his achievements in forming bonds with his peers and carers. We are lucky to be a part of his learning journey.

My son started at Sunny Days two months ago in the baby room. I have always found the staff very helpful and friendly! He thoroughly enjoys his time there and I know he is well looked after. A fantastic nursery with brilliant staff.

The nursery staff are very friendly and always asking for updates (e.g how my child's weekend was and what they have been up to) There are lots of facilities available for the children, my child has come home with cakes they have baked and some lovely art work/craft work. She is very happy when I drop her off and whenever she isn't staff are brilliant at calming her down and finding something to entertain her. The only thing that isn't so great is it is extremely expensive compared to others in the area. I possibly would have reconsidered sending her here due to the cost, but wasn't given all the pricing details at the start due to staff changes.

We have just finished the first month at Sunny Days and my daughter is settling in really well. There is excellent communication between staff and parents via the book which is filled out daily with food eaten, nappies, sleep and activities. The children often play in the garden and my daughter loves playing outside with her friends. The staff are all very friendly and caring and my daughter has formed a great relationship with her keyworker. The nursery is always lovely and clean, and there are a wide range of resources for the children to explore.

Went to nursery for a few hours to see if my son and I liked the nursery, which we did. My son went to sleep straight away on our visit. The very next day, my son stayed all day. I felt very confident that they would take care of my boy, although very difficult to leave.
