(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.

Reviewer Connection to Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Hathaway
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Wendy M (Mother of Child) on Friday 1 July 2016. Review relates to July 2016.
The nursery is ideally located with a strong commitment to liasing with parents on their children's development. The outdoor area is large, fun and full of exciting play areas, ideal for little explorers.
My son has been very happy at Hathaway Hungry Caterpillars; he has developed into a bright, happy and outgoing little boy. I think a lot of this is because of the time he has spent at nursery and the many activities he has been invloved with; day trips, local walks, Juma lessons. I'm very happy with the care my son is provided with.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Zina S (Mother of Child) on Friday 1 July 2016. Review relates to June 2016.
Im happy that the nursery staff take on board the parents' comments and do work with the parents to provide consistency in learning and behaviour. The nursery also sends out regular surveys to allow parents to provide feedback. I do think that more frequent child reviews could happen and I don't know much about the curriculum on a daily basis (what books were read, what songs are being learnt etc) and so it can be difficult to recap with my son on his day or identify new interests.
