High Bank Day Nursery has been rated as one of the top 20 nurseries in the North-East of England for third consecutive year – scoring a perfect review score of 10 out of 10.
We are the only childcare setting in the Darlington area to be included in the top 20 awards ran by Day Nurseries, the UK’s leading nursery review website.
Reviews from parents are used to decide the awards and in the last 12 months, High Bank, which is rated as ‘outstanding’ by its regulator Ofsted, achieved a perfect 10 out of 10.
Parents are asked to rate, from Excellent to Very Poor a range of features, including overall standard of the nursery, its facilities, resources, learning, activities and food/nutrition and care.
Among those who left reviews which counted towards this year’s rating for High Bank include Caroline Holdstock, whose children Edward and Clara are aged three and two.
She said: “The care and attention the staff give the children makes it a brilliant, relaxing environment for them. There are multiple spaces outdoors and animals to interact with and they were very fair with the policies for payment during lockdown. I would recommend the nursery without hesitation.”
Another parent Rachel Roscamp, who son Harry is aged one, said: “From the moment we looked around the nursery, we knew that we wanted our son to attend here. The outdoor space is amazing, and the staff are so friendly and warm.
“Through these uncertain times, we have been updated on the progress and safety measures in place and the nursery and staff have worked so hard to ensure that everything is as normal as possible for the children attending.”
High Bank Nursery Manager Zara Watkinson said “We are delighted to have been named as one of the top 20 nurseries in the North East of England for the third consecutive year and to have scored a perfect 10 out of 10 again.
“It’s a special award because it is based purely on the reviews of parents, so this tells us that we are doing a great job in providing early years education for children in their most formative years.
“We would like to thank all our parents for the fantastic support they give us, and a special mention should also go to our staff who go above and beyond every day to ensure we remain an outstanding nursery.”2020, Day Nurseries, high bank day nursery, top 20 award
