  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 47 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Charley Barley's Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 38 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.902 for Charley Barley's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (510 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 563 Ratings = 4.902

  • 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 Charley Barley's Nursery is based on 38 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 38 Reviews ÷ 8.6 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.

9.9 Charley Barley's Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.902)

I viewed a lot of nurseries around Brighton and Hove before deciding where to send my Daughter... I found Charley Barley's was by far the best! Clean, Bright & Colourful with a friendly, fun atmosphere and a homely feel.
Out of all the nurseries we visited, it was the only one my little girl wanted to get down and play whilst we were there, all the others she clung on to us!
She’s been there four months now and absolutely loves it there and settled in really quickly.

I am so happy I made the decision to move my daughter to Charley Barle'ys Nursery, she has only been there a few weeks but has settled in so wonderfully and that’s all down to the brilliant care and attention of all the staff.
Each morning we are greeted with big smiles and each day my daughter comes home telling me about the fun activities she has taken part in, (she doesn’t want to leave at pick up!)
Charley Barley's really is a “home away from home” and a very special nursery!

Charley Barley's have impressed me since my son joined in January. The staff are all very friendly, nurturing and approachable. Systems are well organised and their communication goes above and beyond. The environment is stimulating and tapestry updates and demonstrate a range of fun and engaging learning opportunities. Most of all, my son adores being at nursery, leaving with a beaming smile and being very content in the evenings (including being suitably worn out!) He is clearly being looked after very well.

In the short time our son has been at Charley Barley's, we have been consistently impressed by the standard of care that he has received. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and everyone we have met has been kind, considerate and dedicated. I looked at a few nurseries when deciding where to send him and Charley Barley's stood out for me straight away - it felt like the right fit and I am so glad we chose to send him there!

My son has been at Charley Barley's since May 2017 and he absolutely loves it. The staff were extremely sensitive to him settling in, (I was really nervous, like most parents I'm sure), sent through so many photos and videos on Tapestry, (they still do), we knew after his first full day that it was the right place for him. It's a wonderfully happy and nurturing environment, the staff are excellent and they always have so many activities for the children to enjoy. My son's speech - he's nearly two - has progressed hugely because of the care and attention they give him, as well as building friendships and learning how to play and share with others. How they do this for each and every child, I don't know, but they do - miracle workers! I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We couldn’t be happier with Charley Barleys for our son, since the first settle session the staff have been brilliant which took away much of the anxiety I was feeling about leaving my son to go back to work. He absolutely loves it and has so much fun with all the great activities they do. As soon as he started there we noticed huge steps developmentally in terms of walking, talking and eating. It’s lovely leaving him with his friends and knowing he’ll have a nice day.

The team at Charley Barley combine a personable manner with a professional service. The team show a genuine interest in the development and care of the children they look after, and their level of interaction is of a high standard.

The facilities are to a high specification and maintained well. The added bonus of having its own outdoor space and proximity to local parks also mean my son and the other children benefit from a variety of activities.

The varied range of refreshments provide nutritional value and offer a wide span of foods for the children to try and enjoy.

The activities my son participates in are both enjoyable (as evidenced from the team’s use of Tapestry), and supportive of his development.

The staff are accessible, friendly and more than happy to discuss any queries and address any needs specific to a child.

I have and would again recommend Charley Barley as a place to trust the care of your most precious commodities.

From the first visit to the nursery, we were favourably impressed by the staff, venue and atmosphere. Modern, clean and colourful, the nursery felt very homely. We liked the fact that the staff are very friendly and smiling, always available to answer your questions and give suggestions and advice. The management team is very helpful and answers queries in a timely, professional and caring way. Since joining in November 2017, we have not been disappointed. Our little one is enjoying her time there. We are happy to hear how she did when we pick her up. Tapestry entries are timely and detailed, with many photos. So happy that Charley Barley's Nursery is in our neighbourhood!

Going back to work was daunting and as a single mum, my support network is even more important. My daughter is one and she loves going to nursery, she has such a great time and I can relax knowing she is totally happy. The children do so many activities, it has been fantastic for development and learning. The staff are all lovely, they accommodate all of our needs, they genuinely care and this means so much.

When looking around nurseries for our little boy, my husband and I both had a good feeling about Charley Barleys straight away, and we haven't been disappointed. Our son joined the baby room at the beginning of September, just before his first birthday, and we are so pleased with the care and attention that he receives. The staff are all very approachable and friendly, which greatly helped the transition to nursery for all of us. The nursery has a home-from-home feeling, with only a small number of babies in the baby room. It is spotlessly clean and organised, with good quality toys and equipment. Although my son only attends for two afternoons a week, he gets a Tapestry update every day, which is uploaded that day or the day after, and it is so lovely to see the activities that he has been up to. At pick up, his key worker or another member of staff always take the time to talk about his day and all seem to know him well already, despite him not having been there that long.

Our daughter has been in the baby room for just over a month now and we are very happy with our decision. All the staff are great, the owners are really hands-on and approachable and our daughter is very happy! One of the biggest areas of praise is for the frequency and quality of the Tapestry updates. We mostly receive a photo update every day she is in, on the day or the day after which is absolutely brilliant, it's lovely to see what she is up to throughout the day. We feel very happy with the care and she is receiving at Charley Barley's.

I cannot recommend Charley Barley's enough. The staff provide amazing care for the children and very quickly understand what each child needs (be it entertainment or cuddles). They are so warm and nurturing with the children, and clearly genuinely care about the children. The nursery itself is spotlessly clean with an excellent range of toys/games/equipment and they do so many brilliant activities. They keep us updated regularly with photos and comments, and do their best to make it as much of a home from home as they can. My twins have developed enormously since starting there, and seem to have so much fun!

Faultless! I cannot speak highly enough of Charley Barley's in Brighton, it is a new nursery and they have thought of everything. The security and safety and happiness are top of their agenda, the place is spotless, the systems they have in place are excellent and I have total faith in them. My daughters face lights up when we get close and every time I pick her up she is happy, smiling and worn out, ensuring a great nights sleep for me! After visiting almost every nursery in Brighton, we 100% made the right choice, cannot praise this place enough!

Charley Barley's appears to be a very well equipped nursery with plenty of space and a lovely outdoor playing area.

Overall I am very impressed!

After a tricky time at another nursery, our daughter was made to feel safe, secure and enthused from the start. The communication and relationships staff have built with both children and parents make it feel that I'm leaving my daughter with trusted friends who have a genuine love and care for both her emotional and physical development.

My daughter has attended Charley Barley's for the last 8 months, she has only attended one other nursery but I have to say that I have been ecstatic with the job that the staff at the nursery do, she has a particularly difficult allergy to rapeseed oil, and has to have cream applied whenever her eczema flairs up (which can make her particularly challenging), the staff have always been very vigilant, caring and understanding when looking after my daughter.
All of her daily activities are regularly updated for me to see on tapestry, the staff always make sure to give me a run through of everything that has happened during the day, what she's learnt, what she's eaten, how she's been and the friends she has made, all of which I feel is excellent experience for when she starts school this September.

For these reasons, I would be extremely likely to recommend friends and family to Charley Barley's Nursery.

Thank you, Charley Barley's!

I love this nursery. We moved because we didn't feel the last nursery was caring for our daughter properly.

At Charlie Barley's we know she is. She is happy to go and loves all the staff.

We have already got 4 of our friends going, through our recommendation that says it all.

Thanks to her carers for doing such a great job.

I knew as soon as I walked in the door that Charley Barley's was the perfect place for my son. It is warm and friendly and I know the staff genuinely care about my little boy; they are friendly, fun and nothing is ever too much trouble. I love how much communication is offered to parents, via newsletters, individual Tapestry accounts, parents evenings, workshops, emails and informal chats in the nursery. I was dreading having to leave my baby to go back to work full time, but Charley Barley's made the transition so easy and did everything they could to put my mind at ease, and my son now adores going to nursery! He is so busy every day and has just flourished under their care.

Fantastic nursery with a very homely feel. The staff cannot do enough for the children. My daughter started when she was 15 months old and I was so impressed with how kind and caring they were. They really accommodated her likes and dislikes and she settled in quicker than I expected. I feel very happy and relaxed when she is there knowing how fab all the staff are.

All staff at Charley Barleys are delightful, they are cheerful from the moment you walk through the door in the morning which is welcoming and reassuring. I know my little boy feels safe and at ease at Charley Barleys, which leaves me happy knowing I couldn't have picked a better nursery for him. The nursery is always clean, the children are always smiling. Charley Barley's always keep the parents well informed on things such as chicken pox etc but also on the child's development. The tapestry app is fantastic, I love being updated with pictures of my little boy throughout the day, seeing how much he is enjoying himself with his friends.

Charley Barley's is a beautiful setting with warm and friendly staff who do their upmost to keep children safe, stimulated, well fed and happy. The outdoor area offers lots of opportunity for play and our kids have been taken to local parks when the weather is nice.
The 'Tapestry' system ensures we are kept up to date with what the children are doing. Feedback about the children's days is also informative.
Most importantly, my children love the nursery and look forward to going and have built positive relationships with staff members.
I would highly recommend.

My son settled quickly and easily into this nursery and has loved every moment since. There is a real family atmosphere and I know he is always well taken care of.
The setting is spacious, light and clean with plenty of room, and he loves playing in the garden at the back.
Staff are flexible and interested, and he eats well too! I would recommend Charley Barley's to anyone considering it.

My one year old started here last month. The staff have bent over backwards to make her feel at home. They got her to nap twice on her first full day there and have managed it every day since. When you've left your baby that is a BIG thing!
Yesterday she came home in the best mood - probably because they'd had a visit from Music Mike and she'd had a sneaky extra bit of tea with her new chums (she's happy if she's got food!).
She is really enjoying it and is really settling in well, thanks to the efforts of the lovely staff.
I would highly recommend this nursery (I know we're only a month in, but we've been through this before with our older son at a different nursery, so we can compare with that (also lovely) nursery.

Words cannot describe how happy I am with my youngest son attending Charley Barley's. Having worked in a nursery for 10 years I struggled to find somewhere that I felt comfortable about leaving him.
He enjoys nursery and is always so happy when I leave him and in return, we are always welcomed in with big smiles and the feedback is great at the end of his session.
I would highly recommend to any other parent looking for a home from home setting to have a look around.

My child thoroughly enjoys going to Charley Barley's twice a week. She always seems very happy in her surroundings and has developed an excellent bond with her keyworker and the staff that work there. She has lots of fun and seems to enjoy the different learning activities that are provided. Her speech and ability to share/play with others has really come on and I feel very confident that her development socially, academically and emotionally is being catered for. It is a lovely fun and friendly environment and I have nothing but praise for the management team and staff there.

Our son has been at Charley Barley's Nursery for a few months now and we could not be happier. He is so excited every morning to go and names all his friends and staff that he is looking forward to seeing. His talking and learning has come on hugely and every day we're surprised with the new things he has learnt.
All the staff have been so amazing. Really warm, friendly, welcoming and genuinely interested in my family and how my son is each day. Their care and hygiene standards are really high and the staff are very well experienced. We feel really lucky as a family to have found Charley Barley's as our son is so happy and settled. Such a lovely nursery which we recommend highly.

Charley Barley's is a fantastic nursery, my wife and I visited numerous nursery's in the area prior to choosing Charley Barley's and I genuinely feel there are none that come close. The staff are all lovely and really make it a home from home where I'm happy and confident to send my son each day.

If you're looking at nursery's in Brighton I'd highly recommend checking them out.

My son attends three days a week and has settled in very well. The staff are extremely caring and have formed a great relationship with my son. This makes pick ups and drop offs a lot easier as there are no tears!

I was hesitant about putting my son into a nursery that had just opened but after going to one of the open days I knew straight away it would be great and it was right for him.

It is a newly opened nursery so I was a little anxious to not have a recommendation, but I couldn't be more happy and secure with my one-year-old here. Brilliantly set out, beautifully clean, and genuine, friendly and highly professional staff. Have had a few ups and downs with previous nurseries but I have complete confidence in leaving my child in Charley Barley's very capable hands.

My 2 year old son has been attending Charley Barley's two days a week since September and absolutely loves it. It took him no time at all to settle in.

Charley's are a brand new setting run by an experienced and professional team who genuinely care. It's very easy to get to being just off Five Ways.

The facilities are second to none with everything a baby or child could possibly need including home cooked meals.

My son would go seven days a week if he could I'm sure.

We joined Charley Barley's Nursery in September 2016 and I couldn't have wished for a better nursery for my son. The staff are amazing and the facilities are perfect. My son loves going and even asks to go. I consider us very lucky to have found a fantastic nursery.
