Reviews

9.8 Hurly Burly Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.828)

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.828 for Hurly Burly Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (197 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 238 Ratings = 4.828

  • 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 Hurly Burly Day Nursery is based on 12 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 8.4 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.

My little girl has been going to Hurly Burly since she was 4 months old. She is now 2 1/2years old and goes two days a week. She absolutely loves it there and has made some great little friends. The best thing about the place is the genuine care and effort from all the staff. They facilitate a great range of activities that stimulate the kids whilst having loads of fun! I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to any parent.

We have been using Hurly Burly for 6 years now and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Both our children love going there and are really loved and cared for in a very nurturing environment.
The staff are amazing and I love dropping the children off and watching them running off for cuddles, I have to chase after them to get a goodbye! Fantastic nursery, keep up your outstanding work.

My child attends this nursery 5 days a week, the staff are all very friendly and welcoming, which helped my little boy settle into a routine quickly and happily. The large outdoor space is a bonus as he loves to be out and about.

My little boy started in the November of 2016. The staff are so attentive and caring towards him and he settled very quickly. My little boys favourite day is when the music man is there. The most convenient thing is my little boy gets to have tea before going home one less thing for us to worry about!

Our son went to Hurly Burly from 4 months old until he went to school. The staff were always kind, caring, and accommodating and supportive - important to working parents! He got a really good foundation for reading and maths at the nursery. Our daughter now attends and we love the balance of creativity, play, and outdoor every day. The dietary range is really good (many times better than at home) and we are so pleased to have found a great nursery like Hurly Burly.

My son started here last September in order for my wife to go back to work, before then he was with her 24/7 so I was very wary to how he would adapt. However I didn't need to worry. After a couple of weeks he had settled really well thanks to the welcoming staff who made him feel very welcome and helped him feel part of the nursery family. Now he runs to the door and greets the staff with big hugs. Since being at nursery his speech has come along and he is potty training which the staff have been very attentive and encouraging.

My little boy started attending Hurly Burly when he was 9 months old. He is now nearly 2 and a half years old.
When we arrive, we are always welcomed by the friendly staff and my son is always asked how he is. My son goes in happily with all members of staff. He always gets excited when we arrive and never wants to leave at the end of the day. It is so reassuring to know that he is happy and all the staff show so much interest and patience.
It is such a kind and happy place. My son eats so well there and thoroughly enjoys his time there. The staff are always interested in anything which may help my son to progress and provide written feedback after each session.

We moved to Hurly Burly from another local nursery because they were flexible and very friendly. My children have always felt at home at Hurly Burly Nursery and their great outdoor space. I love the small class sizes and how all age groups get time to mix and socialise together at certain periods in the day. Hurly Burly is a relaxed yet professional nursery.

All 3 of my children have been to Hurly Burly nursery from the age of around 9 months. It is such a caring, lovely nursery and I have always felt completely confident that my child will be well fed and cared for. They are warmly greeted each morning and you can feel reassured that they will be truly nurtured.
They have always been so happy and sometimes don't want to come home. They spend lots of time outside and doing things like messy play, that I can't bring myself to do at home.
I would thoroughly recommend this nursery to anyone.

I am really pleased with how well my daughter has settled at Hurly Burly's. Her key worker and the team have made a real effort to get to know her as an individual and she enjoys the homely and warm atmosphere of the nursery.
I can see the continued efforts that have taken place to make it a fun and educational place for her to be.

My Son loves going to Hurly Burly. He is very settled and happy there, and I am comfortable leaving him with the lovely staff, knowing he gets the care and attention he needs, and a cuddle too!! They get involved in a wide range of great activities which are all helping to encourage their learning and growing up.

When my eldest was 1, I had to go back to work. To say I was nervous would be an understatement. I had never successfully left my daughter with anyone, she knew what she wanted and it was always me. However, during the induction she left me to go and explore and quite frankly hasn't looked back. In the intervening years, Hurly Burly has changed but always for the better. My eldest child developed from a baby who wouldn't leave mummy to a confident young lady who started school without knowing anyone without any fear knowing that she would make friends. This confidence is down to Hurly Burly and the way they encourage the children to participate and play in activities together. This year my youngest started at 8 months, I didn't want to go back to work but I could in the safe knowledge that she would be cared for and looked after at Hurly Burly. There is so much I would like to say but there isn't enough room ! The staff are brilliant they are kind, caring, friendly and extremely competent.

My daughter joined Hurly Burly Day Nursery over 2 years ago when she was 8 months old. It is a marvellous place, I cannot recommend it enough. All the staff are kind and thoughtful and take such good care of my little one. I did not find it easy coming to terms with returning to work and leaving my daughter in someone else's care but knowing that my daughter is happy and well cared for has made all the difference. My daughter is now very excited about starting at the pre-school in January and I am thrilled to bits that she has made such a good group of friends.

My child has been at Hurly Burly for nearly 2 years and absolutely loves it, she practically runs into the place each morning. Her pre-school carers treat her like one of their own and she hardly seems to want to leave. The things they do seem to mix fun and learning at the right ratio and the addition of the French teacher is a great idea. The outside space is fun and she loves going on the toy motorbikes! The food always sounds appealing and she seems to eat it all which is great.

Great, flexible nursery. My son loves attending and has a great time. He is always keen to go in and play and is offered a wide variety of activities. All the staff are really friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, both about individual children and the general development of how young children learn. The nursery is by far the most flexible one I have found. It is one price for the whole day regardless of pick up and drop off times- this is a great benefit and is not offered by all other day care settings. All food is prepared on site and there is a good variety on offer for the children throughout the week.
I would definitely recommend this nursery if you need high quality, flexible childcare for your little one.

Both my children have attended Hurly Burly Day Nursery and have benefited from the nurturing fun environment. They have both progressed well with numbers and phonics and have enjoyed doing so. They have made lots of friends and look forward to their time there.

The children enjoy a tasty varied diet. They get plenty of fresh air in the large outside area.

It is good value for money.

I have had 2 children at Hurly Burly Day Nursery and they love it. It is a home away from home and the staff treat the children as their own.
The children love the outdoor play area and the regular changes of themes to the rooms.
The children learn at their own pace and there are structured 'pre-school' sessions.
The staff are always bringing new ideas to the nursery to stimulate the children and keep them busy... Including learning French! And I love the fact that there are no TVs or DVDs. My children especially enjoy puddle jumping!
Hurly Burly has prepared my eldest perfectly for the transition to school and thanks to Hurly Burly she has settled into school really well.

My Son went to a nursery previously, and while they were good, they lacked the personal, family atmosphere in Hurly Burly. The staff are always very polite and caring and clearly love their jobs. They take the time to handover and explain what your child has been doing in great detail as well as the justification for the activities. They also make an effort to change the environment regularly so it remains stimulating for the children. Would really recommend!

My son has been at Hurly Burly since he was 10 months old. I love the family and community atmosphere at the nursery and that they provide a home from home environment. The staff are all very friendly and approachable and really love and care for my son. In the two and half years he has been there he has learnt so much, the preschool is doing a really good job at getting him ready for school. Being an August baby I was worried about him being ready for school in September but Hurly Burly has promoted his independence and a helped him to grow into a confident little boy. Hurly Burly also has a super outdoor space which is perfect my outdoor boy who loves getting wet and muddy. The range of activities he partakes in is great too, including learning some French with a dedicated French teacher, and my son is always so excited to tell me about his day...the fact that he is happy and having fun is the main thing and of this, there is no doubt!
