The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Oak Valley Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oak Valley Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.458 for Oak Valley Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.458

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered child places. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered child places has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 3.95 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oak Valley Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered child places ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.200

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Just want to say bringing my child to this nursery was the best thing I did. He wouldn't settle at the nursery before. I explained he needs that warming environment. He stopped being clingy and really settled down. The staff are all very good and it will be really sad to see him go.

Both my two children have attended Oak Valley Day Nursery and I have always been happy with the care my children have received. Staff are warm, friendly and easily approachable. The on-site manager is always helpful and flexible with any requests in reading swapping childcare hours/days.

Friendly welcoming staff. Find them very flexible and accommodating. My daughter has attended for four years and now my son has just started there too. I like the fact that it is easily accessible, can park right outside. Also like that it is all on ground level. Safe entry system. I would like to see more outings/trips and different activities such as crafts/baking etc. Could be better organised with paperwork e.g more advanced notice of events and need a direct email to nursery manager rather than to generic group email address.
