Reviews

7.9 DND Childcare has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.942)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for DND Childcare 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 DND Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.75 for DND Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 3.192 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for DND Childcare is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.192

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

I cannot fault this nursery - the staff are incredible. Completely understanding and would cheer me up after a long day at work. My son used to literally wait by the door to go to nursery in the morning. The staff in the Starfish room were all really lovely but the staff in the Shark room always looked out for my son too. Couldn't recommend enough.

My daughter really enjoys going to nursery and she's made lots of friends. They provide her with a great variety of food throughout the day for her mealtimes. It also gives her the opportunity to do lots of fun things e.g. painting, glueing/sticking, drawing and colouring, baking, puzzles and games. The garden has been improved, along with new outdoor toys and activities. They do some gardening with vegetables and help with the rabbits. This environment will help her for when she starts school. I would certainly recommend this nursery.

My children are all extremely happy at DND Childcare which makes me happy. They have superb staff that teach children key learning stages. Their learning story book for each child documents learning points and photos. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I get a key person at handover in the morning and evening drop off. This is very useful. Management are professionals and well organised. I highly recommend this nursery.

Excellent, friendly staff and family environment. Both of my children have attended DND Childcare. Good food menus for the children to try new foods and obtain a good diet. Very thorough, informative and personalised learning story books continuously updated with information and pictures of the child and the work they produced. Highly recommend to others!

I find DND Nursery a very family based environment which is why I choose to send my little boy there. They offer a varied food menu which is very healthy. The staff are very friendly and warm and help with their learning and development. They offer a wide variety of activities. They have made lovely story sacks which parents are able to take home and read stories and do activities which is a nice touch. I also love the books they put together including pictures of your little ones along with pictures they have done etc.

My daughter started nursery two days a week in September. Being a first time Mum I was anxious leaving my daughter, however, DND made me instantly feel confident in my decision and have supported me appropriately. I cannot thank the team enough and I am amazed at how much my daughter has learnt in the small amount of time she has been there.
