  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 42 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 Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (637 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 705 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 Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre is based on 42 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 42 Reviews ÷ 13 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 Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.902)

Zizu's was the first nursery I visited in the summer and it really set the bar high for the other contenders and I have to say none of them came close. The building is bright and friendly and the staff are even more so. They all know my son very well and greet him with big smiles and cuddles every morning. He's engaged and stimulated while there and is knackered by the time I pick him up and on days where he's had loads of fun, he can be unhappy to be leaving.
Receiving regular updates on his activities is very reassuring and the care and affection that is shown through all aspects of the nursery mean I wouldn't leave my little boy anywhere else or with anyone else for such a long period of time.

My two daughters, aged 8 and 5, have both attended Zizu’s nursery since it’s opening. From the start, I have felt comfortable leaving them there and they have both thoroughly enjoyed the time spent at the nursery. There are plenty of activities to keep the children entertained, all age groups, and I am confident in the staff supervising the children.

Zizu’s is a first class childcare provider and in my opinion, provides a unique type of childcare in the town. It is well managed and staffed and the facilities are stimulating, clean and conveniently located for families from across Teesside. The services provided offer very good value for money and are very flexible. My nephew loves going to Zizu’s and has experienced so much from being there.

Zizu's is excellent for developing the ‘whole child’. The environment is lively, stimulating and conducive to learning. The staff are well trained, emotionally intelligent and look like they enjoy coming to work. Whenever we visit the little people are engaged and excited to be there. There is an understanding of how to support learning both in and out of the classroom. Zizu's programme is wide and varied and meets the needs of all. My nephews’ development has been accelerated since joining the nursery. Thank you to all the staff for their efforts and we wish you continued success.

We have been pleased with the development of our son. His interaction with children of a similar age has really helped bring him and made him more socially aware. His key worker is obviously very keen to do the best she can to help his development.

Amey Savage, Nursery Manager at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre responded to this review on 22 Feb 2018:

Thank You for your lovely review. We are delighted to take care of you son and enjoy watching him develop each and every day!

We were in town from the States visiting family. At some point, it was recommended that we should see my niece and nephews day care. I joined one day on a trip to pick them up and ended up getting a full tour.

What a stellar facility. We have nothing like this in the US. Nothing that combines warmth, education and technological security and monitoring. We've been advocating since that the ownership extend their operation to America and we're hopeful that they do.

Really impressive nursery. I wish we could enjoy all its advantages.

Such a gorgeous Nursery!
After a past negative experience with another childcare provider used for my eldest, I was really apprehensive about finding a new one for my youngest little girl. On visiting Zizu's my apprehension soon disappeared and my mind was put at rest. Both our girls have been going now since March 2017 and I can not fault this nursery!!! Such a warm loving environment that both our girls love. Our youngest has come on so much since starting.
Big thanks to all the girls at Zizu's

Having my eldest daughter collected from school and taken to Zizu's is extremely convenient for me. Even better that she enjoys her time so much with the amazing staff. The location in the centre of town is excellent, on-site parking even better!

I would highly recommend Zizu's to all of my friend and family!

I am pleased with how the school is assisting my son with his development. Will be working closely with the school for assisting our child with his further mandatory development. The staff are very good and provide a warm environment that we as parents feel safe to leave our kids at the school.

When we chose Zizu’s the settling in period was very well managed to ensure the best for our child.
The facial recognition system allows parents/carers to drop in when they need too and it saves taking the staff away from the children to answer the door.
Each day, I receive an update on what they’ve been doing and how she is getting on.
The staff are all very friendly and do their best to settle and entertain the children.
They are accommodating with her meals, they encourage new things and where she doesn’t eat much, alternatives are provided - this is a big relief to know she is eating throughout the day.
In comparison to her previous childcare (which was a childminder), this is far superior and my daughter seems so much happier and stimulated. She sings a lot of nursery rhymes all the time since attending, which is a pleasure to watch.
I have and would recommend Zizu’s to anyone.

Amey, Manager at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre responded to this review on 21 Feb 2018:

Thank you very much Lauren, Since you're little girl started with us, we have loved seeing her settle in and making lots of new friends!

My son has attended Zizu’s for almost 18 months. The staff are always very friendly and professional and welcoming. He looks forward to going to nursery and enjoys spending time with his friends and the caring staff. His development has come on leaps and bounds during his time at Zizu’s. I attended parent evening tonight to discuss his progress and was delighted to hear all about his achievements. Thanks again to all of the staff at Zizu’s, you're doing an amazing job.

My boys attend this nursery, and I can't praise the staff enough. My youngest's key person works effectively for his development and keeps us up to date every day that he is in with regular photos and comments on his learning.
My oldest child never wants to leave when he is here he enjoys it that much! The trips throughout half term are amazing and always have something different each week. Thank you all so much, would 100% recommend this nursery!

My youngest has been attending Zizu’s Children's Day Care Centre for about one and a half years. All the staff are really friendly and caring. I love reading the daily updates on the parent link app and seeing what she’s been up to. The facilities on offer are brilliant. She loves getting ready in the morning and has made lots of friends. My eldest also attends Zizu’s during the school holidays and always enjoys the activities they have planned. On the whole, a fantastic nursery and an excellent start for my daughter.

My niece has been attending the nursery since it was first set up. She has grown up to be an intelligent, confident young toddler. The nursery has instilled loads of confidence in her and this is amazing to see.

She loves attending and doesn't want to leave when I go to pick her up. Her mum always comments on the how the updates on the app are fab.

Great nursery. Highly recommend.

My 2 year old grandson had bad behavioural problems, he would fly into a rage at the slightest thing. He has now been at Zizus for about nine months and the work they have done is amazing. Yes, we still have the odd tantrum but nothing like before. He has learnt to integrate with all the other children and importantly has learnt to share. His speech has also improved at a great rate. It is lovely to see him enjoying helping you when you ask. Thank you to my grandson's keyworker, the patience you have shown is the reason for his massive improvement. I get the impression that there is no child that they cannot help. Well done to all the staff and a special mention too for the cook who provides such amazing food.

My 5-year-old daughter has been coming to Zizus Children's Day Care Centre for nearly a year. She has moved on from Polly's preschool to the breakfast and after-school club. Being one of the first children in at Zizu's, she is always welcomed with a smile by anyone who runs the breakfast and she has loved being taken to school and collected in the afternoon by one of the girls and this means my daughter is particularly fond of her. After school has seen a recent change and there is now even more scope for help with homework and activities for the older children. We look forward to the holiday club activities!

My 18 month daughter has been attending Zizu's for 7 months now, her confidence has come a long way as well as her speech, she enjoys the activities that are set out, my favourite part about Zizu's is they send me daily pictures of my daughter whilst I'm at work of how her day is going, its very refreshing and a great system to put parents at ease. The ladies are fabulous and very welcoming, they are flexible with my working hours which I appreciate. I would highly recommend, the structure of the nursery is great and I feel she is safe and in professional hands. Thank you.

The nursery have bent over backwards to accommodate us. They pick up our son from nursery (even when the time changes for a trip or visit) and they have also swapped a day for us when we needed it. Our little boy enjoys crafts, messy play and playing outside.

My son started at Zizu's around a year ago now. He has just progressed to the pre-school room. He was due in this room until Feb but had progressed so much that I and the staff thought it was the right time to move him up. He has developed so much in a short space of time. He loves being with the older kids. It's lovely to see the new things that he has learnt while at nursery when he is at home. The nursery is welcoming, We are always made to feel welcome. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Amey Savage, Manager at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre responded to this review on 18 Dec 2017:

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Nico, it has been very rewarding for us at Zizu's to watch your little boy grow from a baby to a toddler, and move up into our pre-school room! We agree he really does love it in there!

Both my sons attend here, one in the baby room and one for the afterschool club. They both love it here and it makes me feel so happy going to work knowing my children are cared for and learning something new every day at Zizu's.
Can't thank the staff enough for the care they provide for my children, and I receive regular updates from there EY-log app showing me exactly what they are doing what they have eaten and their sleep times!
100% recommend this nursery, wouldn't take my children anywhere else, thank you so much.

I knew this nursery was the perfect one for my daughter from the moment I stepped in it. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. I know my daughter is in the best possible hands, as a first time mum it's nice leaving her and not worrying about her wellbeing in the slightest as I know the staff are amazing at their job.

She has only been going just over a month and can already see the improvement it's made in her development. I can't thank the staff more for what they do for her.

Thank you very much Beth that's so lovely to hear.

The staff are extremely supportive and cater to my clingy one-year old's daily needs, whilst reassuring me as a first-time mum, returning to work and dealing with all the emotions that come with that.

My son loves it here. We were really stuck over the Easter break when a colleague went off sick and I had to work instead of being on annual leave. The staff were really welcoming to my son and felt right at home straight away. The facilities are lovely and the scan on the door means that you don't have to wait for staff to open the door which makes life much easier. Really flexible hours, lovely facilities. Great holiday club programme which my son (6) really enjoyed. I think he had a better time at Zizu's than he would have done at home with me.

Our son has had some difficulty settling due to a speech delay; Zizu's have been completely flexible and understanding of this, meeting with portage and taking on board recommendations from them to help our son's language and communication develop. He has settled really well, enjoys his daily sessions and has definitely bonded with key members of staff in his room and around the nursery. We love picking up his photos and observations from the app as well, it's lovely to see our son exploring his environment.

Sarah Woods, Nursery Manager at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre responded to this review on 18 Jul 2017:

Thank you so much for your review Michelle. It's our privilege to look after your little boy. We've seen him develop fantastically in such a short space of time and now we are starting to see him become more confident and interact with more of the children. It's important that we continue to build a strong relationship with you and your husband so that we can collaboratively create the best child care environment and can continue to make great progress in helping your boy develop further.

My granddaughter was one of the first children to join Zizu's when they first opened in September 2016. I recall the first few days where she was very emotional and reluctant to leave her mother, as this was her first nursery and she was a very shy and quiet girl who lacked confidence amongst other children. After a few days, we gradually started to notice a difference in her communication skills and she seemed to like the routine of going into Zizu's. After a few weeks, she really did come on leaps and bounds in terms of dialogue, interaction with other children and the staff. 10 months in, my granddaughter is such a happy little girl who gets so excited when it's time to go to Zizu's. The team have done a wonderful job developing my granddaughter into a confident and smart girl that has made significant progress in such a short space of time. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough and am so glad we choose Zizu's over other options.

My niece has been going to Zizu's since the launch day. Zizu's Nursery has truly had a significant impact on her, as a result of Zizu's dedication I have watched her flourish into an independent, confident, intelligent and most importantly happy young girl. Zizu's Nursery has really dedicated time and effort to ensuring she has developed a well-rounded character, I have enjoyed seeing her communication and interaction skills develop from the variety of indoor nursery activities combined with the regular and high-quality outdoor play offered to her on a daily basis. Without Zizu's nursery I don't think she would be as prepared as she is to embark on her educational journey, so thank you Zizu's for giving her a safe, modern and child-friendly environment. Zizu's has definitely put her that step ahead of her peers when she starts school.

The place won't be the same without your niece. Then again we know she'll be coming to After School and Holiday Club which will be great. Thank you for submitting a lovely review, it means so much to know our efforts are appreciated.

We use Zizu's for odd sessions like the Drop & Shop and also attended the Christmas party which my daughter really enjoyed and received a present from Santa. Great nursery and friendly staff, would recommend to others.

Staff at Zizu's are wonderful, professional, caring and attentive. My son attends their after school club and he absolutely loves it. The owner and the manager tried their absolutely best to support me when I was looking for a suitable and specialist childcare provider for my eldest who has autism. The owner took his time to ring the Family Service Middlesbrough to find out the best place for my son and even arranged a meeting as soon as with the manager at Zizu's.
All I can say is a massive thanks for help and support to the owner and the manager for wonderful support and their professional attitude towards the whole situation. I would strongly recommend Zuzu's to anyone who is looking for excellent care for their child/children. A plus star.

I would recommend this nursery to anyone who is looking for a clean, secure environment for there children. I have been around many nurseries myself before I chose Zizu's and my daughter cried at every single one of them. However as soon as she had seen Zizu's nursery, she became very excited, she even joined in with all the staff and other children which is not like her as she is normally shy. This is a very welcoming day care with highly educated staff. 110% recommend.

Thank you for your lovely review Chantelle, it is very much appreciated.

Zizu's provides a warm and friendly environment for my children. I love the idea of the parent link app as I can always look to see what my children have done at nursery.
They offer flexible childcare hours which suits the shift patterns in our jobs. The nursery manager and staff are great and always happy to help.
My children look forward to going to Zizu's after school and they have made good friends. Well done Zizu's!

Thank you so much for your review Chizoba. We're so glad your children enjoy our After School Club and it's great to see them bonding so well with the other children.

Zizu's are fantastic. After looking at several other nurseries for my son, this was by far the very best due to flexibility and the location for myself for work. My son wouldn't settle at first but after several visits and lots of patients from the staff he absolutely loves going and he cries when I go and pick him up! He is coming on leaps and bounds being with other kids. The staff give 100 percent and made me and my son feel totally at ease. The app which I can view at any time is the best thing ever. I love the fact that I can just log on and see what he has been up to, what he's had for lunch or snacks and even how many nappies he filled for them. I wouldn't trust my son with anyone else and all the staff have my full trust and I respect them all. If you're thinking about a nursery for your own child, please go and see them, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much, Jennie, we really appreciate your kind words and absolutely love having your son at Zizu's, it's so rewarding to see him happy and settled with us.

My kids spent the day at Zizu's holiday club. They had a blast of a time and went on an outing to a local museum. They both commented on the amazing apple crumble they had for pudding! The nursery manager was professional and went out of her way to accommodate us. I will recommend this day care facility to my friends and will definitely use it again in future!

Such a lovely review, thank you so much for your kind words Lourina, it is very much appreciated! We look forward to seeing your children again soon!

My children have been here for a few occasions now and absolutely love the place! Staff are amazing and my children have enjoyed spending time with them. From making pizza to learning about fossils, visit parks, card making and a soft play trip they are more than happy to visit again! What a tremendous place! Perfect for me this week as I have a different half term to my children. Zuzu's has cared for them today and provided them with a thoroughly enjoyable eventful day of half term!

Zizu's definitely has that 'something extra', I love that it's spacious and has different areas for the children, along with the lovely outdoor area. The artwork throughout the building is a delight. The setting is bright, clean and safe. Toys and equipment all top quality, clean and working. The staff are friendly and fantastic with the children, my child settled no problem. All the activities are fun and educational my daughter loves it and has developed so much since starting nursery. I love the extras that make a big difference, the security which means you are assured your child is safe. The app which allows you to see info about your child's day immediately. The flexible approach which means you can always rely on them. The fact they go the extra mile, providing drop n shop, hourly childcare, fun days, holiday clubs etc! The award-winning healthy meals!
I am so pleased I found Zizu's for my daughter, I highly recommend and urge anyone who is looking for childcare to pay them a visit!

Thank you so much for the kind comments, Emma. It's been wonderful to see your daughter develop into a confident and smart little lady and we love having her here as part of the Zizu's family.

This is a wonderful nursery. It's such a big thing to trust anybody with your child, but after seeing the way that the staff are with my daughter, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to friends. My daughter looks forward to going everyday which tells me that she enjoys going nursery and feels safe. The staff is excellent and they provide first class care for the kids. Very happy indeed!

Thank you for your review we really appreciate the time taken.

Absolutely love Zizu's almost as much as my daughter does! Staff are so friendly, helpful and accommodating! I work weekly shifts and can be called in last minute and Zizu's have never let me down. They support the parents, as much as they do the children in their care. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds and even talks about staff on weekends and days off!!... I feel comfortable going to work knowing my daughter is in such great hands! I would highly recommend this nursery especially to those like myself who never know what their weekly working patterns are going to be!! Keep up the good work Zizu's.

Sarah Woods, Manager at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre responded to this review on 01 Feb 2017:

That is so rewarding to hear Terrianne thank you, your daughter has settled so well since starting with us in January which we're very pleased about :)

This is an amazing nursery and I am so pleased that this was the first one in which I applied to send my daughter. The facilities they have for the children are great. There is a lovely outdoor garden that they can play in and many rooms with different activities for them to be involved in. The staff are genuinely lovely people and have made me feel at ease and made my daughter settle in and be comfortable.
I was unsure at first if nursery was the best choice for my daughter, as when she started she was younger than 2 years old, however, having watched her grow and become more sociable and confident mixing with the other children and staff has changed my mind. Every time I collect her from nursery, I get details of different activities that they have been involved in and information on what she has eaten etc.

Thank you very much for your review, that's fantastic to hear! We love having your daughter here at Zizu's she's such a character and always makes us giggle!

Zizus Children's Day Care Centre is a fantastic childcare facility. My daughter has been attending nursery for a few months and has really settled.
Staff are excellent and go beyond their job roles in providing a happy and safe environment.
I also felt very settled that my daughter was getting looked after to a high standard and most of all she enjoys attending nursery.
Would highly recommend Zizus to all parents considering putting their child into daycare.

Thank you Shahela, we're so pleased with your daughter's progress since starting at Zizu's, her development is progressing more and more each week!

My two girls love the nursery and staff. My oldest wakes up early just to get ready to go, the staff are lovely and helpful, the staff got my girls eating all different kinds of vegetables which they don't touch at home.

The nursery is very appealing to both adults and children. Each room is very well presented with fun things to do and toys to play with. The decor with all of the animals on the wall was a big hit with my son, he loved looking at them all. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

That's lovely to hear, thank you very much for taking the time out to write a review for us, very much appreciated!

My daughter was the first child to start at Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre and she absolutely loves it! She loves all staff and children that are there and looks forward to going when she does.
The staff at the nursery are fantastic with her, and it's extremely pleasing to see the amount of care and dedication they give to each and every child individually.
I have a lot of faith already and I have no worries that my child is given 100% care when I leave her for work. The nursery itself is such a lovely set up as well, being new itself and seeing it all come together like it as is superb. I couldn't recommend the place anymore than I already do. It's fantastic.

That's very rewarding to hear, thank you very much - we love having your daughter here at Zizu's!

Putting your child into the hands of somebody else is always daunting, but at Zizu's I couldn't want or ask for better people to look after my daughter. She loves nursery because of the attention and the atmosphere that Zizu's brings. As soon as I walked in I felt the amazing atmosphere and I just smiled and thought 'this place is going to be amazing'.
I was not let down by that standard I expected.
The staff there are absolutely brilliant, so warm and caring, the time and effort they have put in and carry onto do so to make that nursery a place to remember is incredible. I want to thank the staff for making my daughter very welcome and a very happy little girl.

Great nursery that is fun, bright, clean and a safe environment for a child.

The environment which has been created is fantastic for learning and development and I feel my child will have a very happy and positive experience at Zuzu's.

The nursery is great at making sure parents are involved & kept updated about what their child has been doing during the day and make you feel like you are apart of the Zizu family.

I look forward to seeing my child grow and develop during their time there.
