Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wiggles & Giggles Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.965 for Wiggles & Giggles Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (220 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.965

  • 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 Wiggles & Giggles Day Nursery is based on 19 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 16 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.

Absolutely outstanding setting, open plan so children from different rooms can interact. Great resources and creativity in planning activities. This setting caters for my daughter's multiple allergies (dairy, egg, soya) with ease, I have full confidence in the food they give to her.
My daughter has gained so much confidence since starting in October and has bonded really well with all members of staff. As a parent, I love the fact they call me by name instead of 'mum', it feels like a truly personal experience. I will be very sad for my daughter to leave next year when she starts school.

My son has attended here for a week so far and absolutely loves it. Having an older son I know the difficulties of finding the right nursery, as soon as I walked in I knew this was the place for my youngest. He's only 9 months old but because we've had the opportunity to attend events and coffee mornings he is familiar with the surroundings and has never cried when I've left him whilst going to work. It is so handy having the nursery on the business park. I can go any time of day and it's always so clean but fun going on at the same time. I can always drop the nursery a quick message and I receive a reply just as quick. I feel the girls here really genuinely care about my child and are there for the cuddles if needed too. It's just a really lovely nursery.

I have two children who both attend Wiggles & Giggles day nursery. Both absolutely love going to nursery each day. My son's development, in particular, has progressed rapidly since starting just a few months ago. My daughter is also doing extremely well and is being offered experiences that my wife and I simply wouldn't think to offer at home. Tapestry is a great tool for seeing how my children are doing and also allows me to upload my own pictures and comments for the staff to see. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The surroundings are beautiful and I think my children are very lucky to be able to enjoy the beautiful views on the business park.

Cannot sing the praises of this nursery enough! My baby is happy, safe and learning. Fantastic place, excellent care team, beautiful surroundings, stimulating play! Brilliant!

I honestly thought I had a difficult child because she would cry when I left her with anyone else but she is so happy to go to nursery and has adapted incredibly easily - all credit for this has to go to the staff at Wiggles & Giggles. Thank you for taking such great care of my little girl.

Cannot praise this place enough! My daughter has come on leaps and bounds and hitting targets I would never have dreamt of! It's always clean, the staff are friendly and the tapestry system has definitely helped me with being a first-time mom!

The choice to put our son into nursery was a difficult one, until we visited Wiggles & Giggles. We knew that he would love it and we were right. There is an excellent range of activities and we love reading what he has been up to on the Tapestry app. We couldn’t have chosen a better nursery!

As soon as I saw this nursery, me and my child literally fell in love. It’s an atmospheric place, you instantly feel warm, welcome and comforted. My child was one of the first of now many children to sign up to this astonishing establishment and I never want him to leave. The members of staff were so polite and courteous, from the get-go their main concerns were instantly about my child and how he would settle in and if he would like spending his time there. The nursery is always clean and the children are always happy including my own. I feel calm and at ease knowing my son is being left with individuals who love children and they’re their main concern. They also have an app where they upload images of your child with the guardian's consent so you are able to visibly see your child’s growth and development. All in all, it’s a lovely place and the staff are amazing people. I would 10000% recommend this nursery without a doubt or second thought.

My daughter joined Wiggles & Giggles back in September. I was surprised how easily she settled in and formed relationships with the practitioners and made friends with the children. She has advanced greatly in all areas and surprises us daily with the new things she has learned with the help of Wiggles & Giggles staff. I couldn’t imagine taking my child to any other nursery, she loves spending her time here.

First time Mom returning to work after 12 months maternity and the staff here couldn’t have made the transition back to real life any easier!!

We had introduction days, they do coffee mornings so you can see how they work, they helped set up my childcare vouchers and they answer emails and concerns as quickly as you think of them !!

My daughter has only been for a couple of sessions and we can already notice an improvement in her confidence.

The facilities are fantastic, the activities they do in the baby room match everything you’d want to do yourself and the place is spotless even when I go to pick her up!

I don’t know how they fit it all in.

I had heard horror stories from friends about the hassle they had picking the right nursery, I had no worries, issues or concerns with Wiggles & Giggles from the offset.

They are the most accommodating professional bunch of lovelies you could ever wish to leave your bundle with!

I recommend Wiggles & Giggles to any parent looking to send their child to nursery. My daughter has recently started and absolutely loves it. I had visited the nursery on several occasions before she had enrolled but knew from the first visit that this was where I wanted my daughter to attend. The staff are helpful and friendly and do a great job of being professional but yet personal too. The nursery is big, bright, clean and inviting. I’m looking forward to watching my daughter grow and learn with the help of the staff and the care they provide!

Fantastic nursery. Our little one had been there for a couple of months and is doing great. I love all the activities that the staff do with him. Tapestry is excellent to see progress and the criteria he is hitting. Love the hot meals, snacks and drinks always available to the children. Very understanding and knowledgeable staff within an open happy nursery. Can’t fault this nursery.

My daughter started this month and I couldn't be happier with the whole process. Staff are very confident and caring, the food that she's eating is so dynamic and the facilities are great.

Tapestry App allows me to see what she's up to and settles me without having to call and see how she is. Very impressed and I recommend to everyone.

Rom the very first day we came to view the nursery from the area to the staff down to space and facilities, they've all been absolutely fantastic. So caring for every single need and individuality of every child. Learning something new every single stay. Also, they have this fantastic app where you can see that they've uploaded pictures and observations. Of your child, so you're in total comfort that your child is safe and having fun.

My little boy is 2 years old and has autism. He is non-verbal. In the short space he has been going to nursery he has started to make lots of new sounds and is even attempting several words. He has grown massively in confidence and gets excited when we pull up in the car park. All of the staff are friendly and approachable. It is clear to see from his observation that they are all very knowledgeable.

Our little boy started at Wiggles and Giggles earlier this week and he absolutely loves it there! He has managed to form a great bond with the staff in such a short time already. The nursery itself and its facilities are fantastic, and the setting is lovely with views of the pond and surrounding wildlife. I love the Tapestry app too, it's brilliant to see pictures, videos and observations of what he is getting up to during his time at nursery! Thank you to the staff for making my sons transition to your nursery so easy for us all!

My 11-month-old has just completed his second week at Wiggles and Giggles Day Nursery and he loves it. The staff have made the transition for him and me so easy. I love the updates on the tapestry app daily and I always get a detailed report of what he has done, ate and drank including naps and anything else I need to know. It's a beautiful nursery where the staff are fantastic. Happy mom and very happy little boy.
