Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.792 for Noddy's Nursery School (Gwendolen Ave) is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.792

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

2 Reviews is 4.8 out of 5

The staff and the other children make Noddy's a very special happy place. They went through a phase of quite high staff turnover a year or so ago, but I think the management have listened to the staff's concerns and this has been rectified.
My son has special needs and his key carers were all brilliant, dedicated and went the extra (several) miles. He was very well socialised when he moved to a specialist setting and has thrived since.
My daughter has now moved on to Reception at school and has settled in very easily because she was so well prepared. Her literacy and numeracy are at the top of her class. She is also mature amongst her peers and is loving the school environment and learning in general because the Aqua Room staff made sure she was ready.
We are still in touch with all her nursery friends and their families and she has a very healthy social life outside of school as a result. And we have also made "friends for life" in a number of the other parents.

I have had two children at Noddy's for 3+ years each, and I cannot recommend the nursery highly enough! Exceptionally good care, the kids LOVED all the key workers (in fact my oldest one insisted on inviting hers to her 4th birthday party :). Everything runs smoothly, the administration is well organised and efficient, food is better than what I cook (I am told, on good authority), the activities they do are just exceptional (tennis! woodwork! small sports! music with Jane! dancing! etc., etc., etc.). The kids spend a good amount of time outside too, and the routines are flexible enough to accommodate individual requirements (e.g. my little one still naps while most of his group doesn't, so he goes into another class for his nap). The girls are so very kind, and obviously passionate about the kids, the job, etc.
We will miss Noddy's dearly once our little one leaves next summer and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone considering a nursery place.
