Reviews

9.8 Greatsaurus Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.752)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Greatsaurus Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Greatsaurus Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 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 4.983 for Greatsaurus Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 4.769 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Greatsaurus Nursery is based on 10 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). 10 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.769

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My wife and I are always overwhelmed by how excited and enthusiastic our grandson is when we tell him it is time to go to nursery! We cherish the time we spend with him and look after him for certain days during the week, but it is always a heart warming experience when we drop him off at Greatsaurus and wave him off.
In such a short space of time we have seen a real boost in his confidence and now loves interacting with other children when out and about.
I wholeheartedly thank the staff for making our Grandson feel so welcome and we couldn't be happier to be part of the Greatsaurus extended family. I would highly recommend this nursery!

Fantastic nursery with the warm, kind and friendly staff! My Grandson recently joined the nursery and all the staff have gone out of their way to make the whole family feel welcomed. He has learnt so much and I can already see a difference in his play, he is much more confident and less shy in new situations. We already have a gallery in our kitchen of all the creations he has made, the staff are super creative and are always thinking up new and exciting activities for the children. The space is incredible and I love the fact he can use the garden space throughout the whole day. We love Greatsaurus Nursery and will continue to highly recommend it!

My son loves going to nursery. He talks about the staff as his friends. He gets to do an enormous amount of creative activity and some outdoor play. He has been the "garden police" helping to plant vegetables. I also love that the nursery is custom built by the man who looks after all the Saurus nurseries. Everything is new and all the 6 rooms he has to choose from have been carefully curated. I also love how much my son has been able to celebrate Diwali and Chinese New Year as well as Christmas.

Greatsaurus Nursery is a fantastic nursery with amazing staff!
Our son settled in very well and that was all down to the amazing team that looked after him throughout his first week.
The facilities and food are first class and the use of the web-cam service is such a peace of mind!
I would recommend Greatsaurus to anyone in the Worthing area.

We are incredibly pleased with Greatsaurus. Our son was 3 when he started so we were not sure how he would take to it, but the staff have made it a warm and interesting place for him to be and he loves it.
The communication with us on a daily basis is fantastic and the activities are great fun.

Our son was able to transfer from sister nursery Brightsaurus in Hove with ease, and all the staff went out of their way to make him feel comfortable and at home straight away. I thought he could never love a nursery as much as Brightsaurus, but he loves Greatsaurus even more! He is the oldest, and has learnt so much about being caring and helpful with the younger ones. I can see the difference in him and in his play, and the way he relates to others.

When we did a tour we were so excited and impressed, as it really is incredibly well equipped - the rooms are absolutely huge, and full of toys and games for the children to play with. The kitchen and garden are fantastic too - we wanted to stay ourselves!

We've been hugely impressed with the staff too, and feel like our son really does have a family outside home.

When our son wakes up in the morning the first question he asks in a very excited voice is: "Am I going to nursery today?!", which I think says it all really....

We love Greatsaurus nursery! My son started here when I returned to work. I was nervous about how he would settle being a breastfed child who has never been away from me for one day!
I shouldn't have worried. The staff are so fantastic and supportive - he is so happy and safe in their care. They are happy for me to provide my milk for my son's lunch feed and are fully supportive of my son's routine and quirks. He loves his days there.
The rooms are a fantastic size - the biggest I saw on viewing nurseries and are laid out beautifully with a good range of toys and activities for all the senses and ages. The garden was a major selling point for me. Not many nurseries in Worthing have a huge garden with so many facilities for children to enjoy.
Staff update me daily on what he's been doing and enjoying. Everybody is so friendly and informative.
The parent Webcam is nice so you can have a sneaky peek at lunch - it's lovely to see him enjoying himself.
Massively recommend this nursery!

My son joined Greatsaurus Nursery in December 2016 after a recommendation from a friend.

I went to visit all the nurseries in the area and there isn't anything that compares to this nursery. The rooms are large and spacious with fabulous resources and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.

Staff have lots of experience and are all highly qualified. Since joining, my son has already made so much progress, his speech has come on leaps and bounds and he is much more confident.

Being a first time Mum I was apprehensive about leaving my child for the first time but I'm so glad I took a leap of faith and put my trust in the staff at Greatsaurus. They have gone out of their way to make me and my family feel welcome and my son already has strong attachments with all the staff. I couldn't be happier with the nursery and would highly recommend it!
