  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. 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 4.746 for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 213 Ratings = 4.746

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      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 Quantity Score of 4.383 for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) is calculated as follows:

      1. 18 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 18 Positive Reviews = 1.800 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (18 Positive Reviews ÷ 94 Children) x 2 = 0.383

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

My son has been attending since he was 18 months old. He has a food allergy and was a very nervous child. Understandably I was very concerned about him attending any nursery. The staff take his food issue extremely seriously and spent simply hours cuddling him when he first started to help him adjust. He's flourished in the environment, now eats a really good range of goods, loves the staff - as do we - and has so much fun in the new(ish) garden. They have added staff to the office recently and so the administration side is working great now too.

My daughter has been at Maples since she was 10 months old and has always been very happy there. She particularly enjoys the preschool, which is excellent. Always so many activities organised and staff are always welcoming engaging and know the children well.

We recently moved our 3 year old daughter from another nursery to Maples (following a move). Our daughter is very happy in butterflies. She is very well looked-after. We are very impressed with the activities. We would like a bit more fruit on the menu.
We would like a better system for knowing what our daughter has eaten.

We are very pleased to have sent our boys to Maples Day Nursery. We have felt confident with the staff from the start. They settled in quickly and have now been there for 6 months and are excited to go. They appear to enjoy the food and the menu is nicely varied. The outside space is fantastic - particularly the fort. Special mention and thanks must go to the boys key workers. They have been crucial in settling the boys and keeping them happy. They are always enthusiastic and happy. The boys love seeing them and they are a credit for the nursery.

My son has been attending Maples since September. He has thrived in Butterflies and I have to say the care and education he has received to date is exceptional. He loves going to nursery and loves all the activities they do. He always has a story to tell us everyday when we pick him up. He has always been a very plain eater but since attending Maples he eats vegetables and tries food he would never eat at home for us. I can honestly say he has grown more confident as a person and the love and care he receives from the staff is exceptional.

I would like to thank all the wonderful staff at the Maple Nursery in Winchester, for everything they have done for my daughter. All the staff have been absolutely fantastic. My daughter is such a happy little person. She loves hanging out with her friends and all the staff are like family. I am so grateful for everything they have done and know full well that my daughter would not be the person she is today without their devoted, loving care and attention.

My son now is in pre-school at Maples. He loves it and so do we. He is happy, being well fed and well cared for by the whole team. The room leader for pre-school is excellent. I cannot praise her highly enough for her commitment, enthusiasm and results. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our son!

My daughter started at Maples when she was 11 months old, attended two different rooms so far and just about to move rooms again (she's just turning 2). She absolutely loves going to nursery and the rate of her development is just amazing since she started. She only does 2 days a week but it makes a huge difference. The staff are very friendly, they do all sort of activities, they consider individual needs (my daughter's second language is Hungarian and her key person prepared a Hungarian booklet for her to practice both languages I was well impressed). It is such a relief that she loves going there in fact sometimes she's upset that she have to leave her friends and come home. The food is really good, they get 3 meals and snacks as well which is great help because I have to drop her off early and cannot pick her up till 5.30 after work. I can only recommend Maples.

My two children (aged 4 and 22 months) have an absolutely fantastic time at Maples, cared for by staff whom they are enormously fond of. The outside space is excellent and new pre-school facilities in particular are brilliant. My only gripe is the sickness policy which doesn't seem to take into account teething-related symptoms, so we have had to collect teething children (demonstrating high temperature, for example) on a number of occasions when there was nothing else wrong with them. Would absolutely recommend Maples.

My 2 and a half years son started attending the nursery in September. He wasn't able to speak English and never had attended a school but everybody was so kind and caring, a good start! I highly recommend this nursery. It is so familiar, funny and nice!

Caring, Knowledgeable, Approachable Staff.

The staff within the 'ladybirds' room are all very caring and approachable. They were all delighted so see my son again after almost 3 weeks away. They made me feel as if he was the only child there when clearly he isn't!! They know him well, with his quirks and personality and they ensure they meet his needs. They answer questions openly and are very knowledgeable about the key milestones he should be achieving, always able to answer my questions.

My son has settled very well here, after a bad experience in a previous nursery he is happy here. I like the structure of the day and like how they accommodate to each child's needs. The daily activities are very varied and gives my son lots of different experiences. The outside space is brilliant and so is the new butterfly room. Staff are very welcoming and friendly especially Danni, Elysia, Bev , Liz, Amy and Hayley.

Becky has been a part of both our children's care from their baby days. She has always shown enthusiasm for them and they enjoy spending time with her. She is very caring and has helped them both progress during their nursery journey.

The preparations for,and transition to, the new pre-school building have been excellent. The butterflies team have provided support for the children - and the excitement and enthusiasm of the staff has rubbed off on the children. Parents communication has been clear and timely.The end result - the new building is great.
A particular note of thanks to Meg- who will be missed by parents and children a like.

Hayley Dozey has really encouraged my daughter with learning new skills in preparation for school. She is now able to write her own name and count to 100 (with some help), so that she is well prepared for school in September 2015.

Our daughter had a wonderful time at Maples and we are very grateful to all the staff for having provided the most wonderful care for her. She has developed enormously as a consequence with all the many different activities that they have provided during the past 12 months. The management has also been incredibly supportive and accommodating of our continuous changing needs and arrangements. We couldn't have asked for a better place and we will certainly miss it !

My son absolutely loves going to Maples. At 17 months he happily sits at home reciting all the staff members names and squeals with delight as we arrive in the mornings.
The team are very professional and you can tell from the moment you walk in how much they care for your child. Highly recommended.
