Clever Clogs Day Nursery in Belmont has received a perfect 10 out of 10 from parents, with their reviews once again resulting in the setting being named as one of the top 20 nurseries in the North-East of England.
This is the second consecutive year the nursery has achieved this award from Day Nurseries, which is based purely on ratings and comments posted by parents over a 12-month qualifying period. All the reviews submitted in this period were maximum ones, giving Clever Clogs Belmont an overall review score of 10 out of 10.
Parents are asked to rate, on a one to five-star basis, a range of features, including overall standard of the nursery, its facilities, resources, learning, activities and food/nutrition and care. These are then used to calculate an overall score out of 10.
Among those who left reviews which counted towards this year’s rating for Clever Clogs Belmont, which is rated as outstanding by Ofsted, include Marie who said: “My daughter started the nursery in February 2023 and from the initial visit, I was put at ease by the staff members. They really have a good understanding of child development and how you can support your children at home.”
Another parent, Maria said: “I can’t speak highly enough of Clever Clogs Day Nursery. I was very nervous about leaving my son, but he is so happy and settled and the staff are wonderful with him. I nearly decided not to go back to work but finding Clever Clogs made the decision much easier and I’m so glad that I did. He has come on leaps and bounds.”
And parent Cheryl said: “A friendly, caring, and wonderful place for my daughter to learn, she is developing so well, and the nursery really encourages her growth. My son will be attending nursery very soon and we wouldn’t want him to be anywhere else.
Clever Clogs Day Nursery Manager, Sharon Lewis, said “We are delighted to have retained our top status for 2023 and to have achieved this with the highest review score possible.
“It’s lovely to read the comments from parents on the positive impact we are having on them and their development, and we would like to thank everyone who has left a review over the last 12 months.
“We would also like to extend our gratitude to our amazing staff team who go over and above each day to ensure the children are given the best possible start to their early years education.”
