A Redhill nursery has won an award for being one of the top 10 recommended nurseries in the UK.

Nutfield Day Nursery came ninth out of more than 10,000 day nurseries in the UK and second out of 1,791 in the South East of England.

The ranking was based on the nurseries recommendation score. The score was calculated by taking into account the number of recommendations from the children’s families and carers, the average score of the ratings given to the nursery and also the size of the setting.

The award was given to the top ten settings by the leading guide to day nurseries, daynurseries.co.uk.

Deputy manager Marie Nettleingham, said: “We are thrilled and excited to have won the award. We are celebrating with our parents over a week of different evenings in our new round house.”

Davina Ludlow, The director of daynurseries.co.uk said: “We would like to congratulate Nutfield Day Nursery on being ninth in the UK and being the second most recommended nursery in South East England! It is a fantastic achievement to be recognised as a highly recommended nursery by the families and carers of the children that attend the setting.

“All nurseries which receive a score, rating and recommendation are rated on their overall standard. This ranges from learning, equipment to management and value for money. These can all be viewed on the day nurseries website.”
