Reviews

10 Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre has a Review Score of 10 (9.962)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 33 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 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 4.962 for Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (379 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 394 Ratings = 4.962

  • 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 27 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 12.8 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 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.
I would highly recommend Zizu's to all parents.

My son started here in April and he just loves the place, gets excited going in and doesn't ever seem to want to leave. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. They are so flexible and willing to work around work shifts. The Parent Link app is a great thing so I can see how my son is getting on throughout the day. It is in a great location as I work in Middlesbrough Centre.
I am so happy I found this nursery for my little boy.
Zizu's is fantastic with fantastic staff. Everyone should be really proud of themselves for working at the best nursery.

Thank you for your review, it is very rewarding to know we are doing a great job providing care for your little boy.

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.

My 22-month-old son has just started here and absolutely loves it. He cried yesterday when I came to pick him up as he wanted to stay.
When we came to look around he settled straight away and loved the outdoor space. All the staff are so friendly, and I feel that if I had any issues I could approach them without concern. Can't rate this nursery highly enough, and very happy that I've found it.

We're delighted you've chosen Zizu's Nicola, and it's an absolute pleasure for us to look after your charismatic little boy! Thank you so much for your kind review.

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.

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 :)

I first went to look at Zizu before it had opened and it wasn't finished. I first looked at the garden and fell in love with it. Then looked at the rest of it and loved it even more. My little boy only started doing full days last week and has totally settled! I'm so happy that I'm returning to work and he is happy. The app is great, I can go on at any time and see what he is doing, what he has eaten and how much.

When I first started planning on looking at nurseries, I had my heart set on one in particular. It had a very good reputation, however, on going to look at it, I was really disappointed. I was so happy to find Zizu. It's a beautiful layout, the staff are so nice and helpful. The location of it is great as well.

I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

Thank you so much Nico that is fantastic to hear, we're so happy your little boy has settled so quickly he is such a character and a pleasure to have at Zizu's!

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!

I have been delighted with the development of our son since we moved him to Zizu’s Children's Day Care Centre Nursery. I have been reassured constantly by the enthusiastic, positive and engaging team of staff. From the owner downwards we couldn’t have been made more welcome and confident that this is the right place for our son to learn and develop through the most crucial years of his life. The daily reports and pictures provided early confidence that he was settling in and undertaking lots of fun activities. It was quickly noticeable that he was progressing well and was comfortable in his new environment. Key in all of this is the proactive way we are kept updated by the staff with what our son is doing, eating and how he is developing in an honest, open and safe environment. I would highly recommend Zizu's.

Thank you, Gavin, we are delighted to hear of your happiness having chosen Zizu's for your son, we thoroughly enjoy having him at nursery he's a pleasure to look after!

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.

Thank you for your review, we love having the girls here at Zizu's they are such pleasures to look after and great eaters too!

After my initial worries and fears due to changing My son's nursery I can honestly say choosing Zizu's was the best decision I have ever made. He has adapted well to his new surroundings and is very comfortable being left with the friendly, caring staff. I am happy leaving him in the knowledge that he is being left in safe hands, the girls are exceptional at what they do. My son has come on leaps and bounds since joining Zizu's, he's growing and developing into a confident little boy who is happy to wave bye bye to mammy knowing he has a fun day ahead of him with lovely people and lots of new friends. The nursery is superbly decorated. It has an animal theme that is very appealing to the children. Can't thank you all at Zizu's enough, would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a nursery to go and visit Zizu's as you will be more than impressed.

Thank you so much and what a lovely comment. We are over the moon with your son's progress since starting with us at Zizu's and can't wait to see more developments from him in this next year.

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.

That's very rewarding to hear Amy thank you, we find it a joy to have your daughter here at Zizu's!

My one-year-old has been attending Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre since it opened. I was very pleased with how quickly she settled in. This was made possible by an amazing set of staff that provide a safe and nurturing environment.
I was impressed by the excellent facilities they have and knew it was the right place to send my child. I liked the fact that they have a large number of rooms allocated for different types of activities.
I also get the chance to see what my child has been up to during the day, as staff provide regular updates via the first steps parent link app. I can see what she has had to eat and what she has been learning.

I would highly recommend Zizu's Children's Day Care Centre

Thank you so much Nazia, your niece is a joy to have at Zizu's!

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.
