Bilborough Nursery Achieves Perfect Score

There was cause for celebration at a Nottingham nursery this month, after it achieved the perfect 10/10 score on leading peer review website

Based on Beechdale Road in Nottingham and part of Children 1st Day Nurseries, the UK’s largest family owned and run nursery group, staff at Children 1st @ Bilborough has been praised for their hard work, dedication and commitment to children. The ‘perfect 10’ rating, which was achieved last week, is a considerable achievement for everybody involved, and is particularly significant as it’s based on the views of parents and carers with children at the nursery. is the leading review site for nurseries in the UK. The review score is based on verified parent feedback and nurseries are rated on their overall standard, facilities and outside space, learning resources, equipment, ICT, care, activities, staff, food and nutrition, management, cleanliness and safeguarding as well as value for money.

One parent of a child who attends the nursery left the following review:

“I cannot recommend this nursery enough. Every single member of staff is kind, warm & welcoming. They’ve helped me adapt hours when needed to suit work life and my son has come on leaps and bounds since joining in September 2021. His confidence has grown, he has a great group of friends and has made some amazing bonds with members of staff. All have honestly made the start of his journey in early years amazing and I couldn’t thank them enough with words – the staff are assets to this establishment and need all the recognition they can be given.”

Other parents have praised both staff and facilities, referring to the nursery’s activity offering as “structured and educational” and stating that all members of staff are “very nice and very experienced” with a “true passion and enthusiasm for working with children.” The setting has also been praised for the care given to children with special educational needs, with one parent thanking the staff for fully embracing her son and giving them, as parents, the “confidence and courage to do better.”

Speaking on the achievement, Margaret Mason OBE, Children 1st Founder and Executive Chair said:

“Positive relationships with our families play a key role in the success of all our nurseries, and we are delighted to be recognised in this way. Our skilled teams place great value on each child’s individuality and build learning journeys that meet both their needs and interests, ensuring that parents and carers are fully engaged along the way. The quality of reviews on further validates our hard work and commitment, and have also boosted team morale – so I’d like to say a big thank you to all our parents who have taken the time to provide feedback.”

Children 1st @ Bilborough’s location on the Jubilee L.E.A.D. Academy site enables the staff from both settings to work closely together and ensures that the children are very well prepared for school. It’s also very convenient for busy parents as the close proximity of nursery and school makes drop off and collection easy. The nursery is welcoming new registrations and funded places are available for eligible 2, 3 and 4-year-olds.
