Parent Survey

Parent Survey 

Parents survey -2020

'Thank you! We will really miss Slade Nursery next year. It has been a wonderful nurturing place.'

'The building and garden are brilliant and so are the staff.'

' I feel my child is very safe there and that this is very important when you leave your child at nursery.'

'Contact and support from the key people has been consistently wonderful. Love the nursery books.'

Parent survey - July 2019 

Parents contributed to the questionnaire with a positive range of comment about what the nursery does well. They fall under five main headings: learning and development; wellbeing; staffing; communication and general. 

Parents thought highly of the provision and the opportunities that were created for their children. Parents liked the way the outside and inside provision was enhanced for children and that activities were regularly changed or were added to, creating new learning opportunities . Parents commented that they felt the needs of their children were taken into account when staff planned activities and that they were varied to aid the development and learning of their children. Parents expressed that their children were well supported when learning English as an Additional Language and that they made fast progress. Parents generally felt they received valuable information about their child's development. 

There were many positive comments about staffing and the supportive, caring nature of staff and the senior management team. Parents felt that their children are happy in the nursery and that they are well looked after by staff. 

Parents of children attending as a two year old were very positive about how it had supported their child's social development and the ability to mix with, talk to and play with other children.

As a result of the survey we will be: 

  • Providing more notice of the trips and experiences. 
  • add a definition of  'bullying'  in the Relationship Policy.
  • and explain young children's behaviour in a parent workshop on personal, social and emotional development. 
  • create a communication board in the front entrance


Parent survey -June 2018 

43 surveys have been completed by parents, with a positive range of comments about what the nursery does well. They fall under five main headings: learning and development; wellbeing; staffing; communication and general. 

Parents have said they appreciate the supportive friendly relationship they have with the staff. Parents have commented on a range of personal and social aspects that their children have benefitted from, which include helping them to settle into nursery and to grow in confidence. Parents spoke positively about the range of interesting activities, new skills their children have developed and how happy the children feel about coming to nursery. 

Parents have commented on communication from the 'brilliant' observations recorded in their learning journal to the 'fantastic' communication through the website to 'greeting the children by name'. 

Here are some general comments from the survey:

' I'm impressed and appreciative of all that is offered by the team here, but especially the way each child is seen as an individual and nurtured according to need.' 

'My child loves it here, and learns something new everyday.'

'Everybody is so happy and smiley which gives my child a happy start to the day.' 

'My son enjoy's every moment he's at school. You have done a great job of making him comfortable and a very confident little boy.'
