Happy Days Nursery is located in Wood Lane Community Centre and has a real community feel with a team of nursery staff who along with the children get involved with local projects and activities.

Happy Day Nursery Nursery acknowledges that starting nursery is often a child’s first adventure alone without the security of their family and provides children with a calm, safe and secure learning environment.

Staff strive to provide children with a stimulating and challenging environment which is a home away from home while also creating a friendly atmosphere where children are encouraged to feel relaxed and safe.

The nursery employs only the most professional and dedicated staff who have a natural affinity for childcare and a great understanding of children under the age of five. Staff at the nursery aim to increase the confidence and self-esteem of all children at the nursery, treating them as individuals. While realising that parents and carers are each child's main educator, staff work closely with parents and carers to ensure that the best care is given to each individual family.

A professional and dedicated team of staff endeavour to provide the highest level of service in a warm, homely and non-competitive atmosphere and have introduced a range of initiatives to ensure this. Staff recognise that having the best start in life is more than just going to a great nursery or having the best childcare or enjoying innovative early years education, they recognise that it’s about laying the building blocks for creating talented, passionate and happy children who love learning, love playing and love the environment they do it in.

In addition, the nursery has an open door policy boosting communication between parents and staff.

Reviews

9.9 Happy Days Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.867)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Happy Days 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happy Days Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.867 for Happy Days Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (125 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 Happy Days Nursery is based on 8 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 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.

I am happy with the nursery. We are not British so my daughter needed to learn English in nursery. She is learning a lot and after a few months, we can speak at home in English. Staff are very friendly and patient. I can see my daughter developing a lot.

Great work. My 2 years old daughter has had great improvements since she has been there. Really keen for her to start on more hours and enjoy the interesting activities throughout the year. Great team members and positive vibes as soon as you enter the nursery. Everyone is approachable and understanding.

Happy Days Nursery is quite good conducive for children's learning. The environment enables kids to play, learn and have fun bringing out the best in the kids. Their teachers are good, approachable and do their best to work well with kids. They have a good standard of measuring children's growth and development. But there is room for improvement since it was open not long within two years. Above all very good.

My girls (twins) were so shy and would not go to anyone.The staff at Happy Days Nursery are so fantastic that my girls run into the nursery in a morning and even at weekends, they ask if it's nursery time. The lovely staff are friendly, kind and care about the children. In the nursery, it's very clean and tidy. I would recommend this nursery 100% To any one it's fantastic

I have been using Happy Days Nurseries for 20 years. Happy Days is by far the best that I have used. Staff are very polite and easily approachable. My son is incredibly happy here, and we will be heartbroken in August when he has to leave for full-time school. The manager has a brilliant and creative imagination for activities at the nursery and as a parent, I look forward to finding out what my son will be doing on a daily basis. This nursery is definitely Quality over Quantity and I would highly recommend to anyone. Keep up the fabulous work ladies A*****

Our 2 year old daughter is at this nursery and we think that it's great. Happy Days is a smaller nursery, so this has helped our child settle in so well. First few weeks it was hard she had tears when I left her at nursery, however staff were brilliant, they look after with real passion and now one girl can't wait to go there. Place have a big outside area to play with my girl, love it. Also provides every day different activities. There is really good communications, between staff and parents, we are not to scared to ask any questions to them about our child. We fully recommend this place.

What a brilliant nursery! Our 2 yr old son is at this nursery and he thinks its great. My partner and I are really pleased that we found this nursery as we wanted a place where he didn’t feel lost in a big room with loads of other kids. Happy Days is a smaller nursery where he is closely cared for by the staff and can make friends with a smaller group of children. I am sure this has helped him settle in so well. The nursery provides a variety of activities, which are changed every day to focus on different things to explore and learn. This is really great for his development. We are expecting a little brother or sister soon and we hope that we can get him/her into this lovely nursery in a couple of years!
