Reviews

9.2 Buttercups at Chalfont has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.198)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Buttercups at Chalfont is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buttercups at Chalfont in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.736 for Buttercups at Chalfont is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.736

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.462 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buttercups at Chalfont is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.462

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

Our daughter is now almost four and has been at Buttercups since she was around one and a half. We are very happy with the way she has been looked after and developed since being here.

At each of the three stages of the nursery, the teachers have been friendly and caring, providing good feedback on her development.

There is a good range of activities and extra classes offered. The food menus are well thought out and healthy.

I would highly recommend this nursery to other parents.

I have 3 sons and they have all enjoyed their time at Buttercups in Chalfont. The boys have been extremely happy, they have learnt and developed well and have enjoyed some lovely relationships with the staff. The new hub has enabled that final year at the nursery before reception to be more focused on getting the children ready for school in safe and familiar surroundings. My husband and I are extremely grateful for everything that the nursery has given us and our boys.

Buttercups at Chalfont Park is a lovely nursery. My child settled in very quickly and has been very happy, loved and safe there for 6 months. I can tell that the staff genuinely care for her physically, emotionally and in her development. Her key worker clearly invests a lot of energy and effort in developing her various skills - social, verbal, mathematics. I would confidently recommend Buttercups to any mum or dad in the area.

My daughter is very happy at Buttercups and is well looked after. I have no concerns about her being there. The staff turnover is quite high but they are all very caring and loving to the children. I would recommend to others.

My son has been attending Chalfont Buttercups since he was 6 months old. He is now nearly 4. Its often a tough choice for working parents as to where their child can be looked after. So how incredible for me to find Chalfont Buttercups. The staff are exceptional; the love and care they give my child is beautiful to watch. I have always felt 100% confident in the competence and care of the staff. It's a brilliant, caring, fun, happy and structured environment. If you want your child to have fun, flourish, engage with others positively, understand social interaction, be disciplined when it comes to meal times/sharing/manners etc and receive an all-rounded education then this is the place for them. I highly recommend this nursery.

A 'home away from home' - that was my first impression when I visited this nursery when choosing the best place to send my twin daughters. Six months later, I still feel the same way. The nursery is smaller than others I saw, but the facilities are great, and, most importantly, the staff are absolutely exceptional. They give individually tailored care to each child to help them develop into the unique people that they all are. The staff give detailed feedback so you know just how your child has done at nursery and feel informed of their development. All staff are friendly and ensure that you know them all by name (not just the key worker in charge of your child), helping to develop a really strong relationship between parents and the nursery. Would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone.
