    The Review Score of 9.014 for Home from Home - The Nannery Ltd is based on 11 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • 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 4.614 for Home from Home - The Nannery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.614

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 4.4 for Home from Home - The Nannery Ltd is calculated as follows:

      1. 10 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 10 Positive Reviews = 1.000

      3. (10 Positive Reviews ÷ 50 Children) x 2 = 0.400

We were happy with the nursery for the majority of the time our child attended. Our concerns, when voiced, were addressed and resolved within a reasonable period of time. However, recently we had a dispute about the fees being charged and we felt (and still do feel) that these are not transparent and not communicated to parents effectively. Our child is nearing school age and is happy and settled here and well taken care of but in the future, we will be shopping around for another childcare provider. Particularly in relation to the grant entitlement and how these are applied.

I think Home from Home - The Nannery Ltd provides very good care. I am totally satisfied with the service I get. My child has learned lots since he's been here and his character has come out. All I can say is that I have only seen improvement in him since he's been attending this nursery.

Since my son has been at the nursery he has improved immensely. He has ASD and they have encouraged him to improve in his social skills that he lacks.
They also focus on his strong points and have helped him improve in that area.

The staff are all very friendly and my son is often talking about how much he likes them, something he rarely does with other adults. Would not hesitate to recommend the nursery.
