Reviews

9.6 Becket Hall Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.550)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Becket Hall Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Becket Hall Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 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 4.824 for Becket Hall Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.824

  • 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 4.726 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Becket Hall Day Nursery is based on 9 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.726

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

This is a lovely nursery, with a great group of staff creating a friendly and supportive atmosphere for the children. Both of my children went to Becket Hall Day Nursery when they were just over a year, and stayed until going to school. They enjoyed the large garden and appreciated spending lots of time outside. My daughter especially loved sports activities and my son played most days in the mud kitchen. There always seemed to be lots going on, and new ideas to keep the children interested in things to do. Outings in the minibus to forest school were always very much looked forward to. I found the staff very receptive to any concerns I had, and open to ideas.

My eldest was here from 1 year to 4 years and had a wonderful time. Facilities are great, the staff are wonderful, so very caring.

Her younger sister has started and has settled in already. I love seeing the photos of the great time she is having. It's fantastic that they take the children out on day trips, to forest school and to the old peoples home.

Very happy with Beckett Hall and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Cannot praise Becket Hall enough. From the baby unit to preschool, the facilities, staff, and endeavours to go beyond the expectations of a nursery, everything is incredible. Our daughter made some amazing friends, ate foods she still refuses to eat at home, learned boundaries and rules, and was truly loved by a lot of people who spent ten hours a day, five days a week, making sure our little girl was safe, happy, educated, and developing. I think every parent must wonder how in the world they do it!

Forest school was fantastic, and the care home visits were sweet and kind and helped our kids develop so much more than just interacting with their own age. I loved picking her up and dropping her off (though probably spent way too much time nattering to staff and parents), and the garden is just fantastic.

We are honest to god disappointed that we can't send our new arrival there (but we've moved house closer to work to make school drop offs and pick ups easier for my daughter).

Becket Hall has provided a nurturing, happy and loving setting for our daughters preschool years. They have developed strong bonds with the staff and a close network of friends. The outside space has provided exciting play and adventure in the heart of the city. They have experienced many inspiring activities including trips to a residential care home for the elderly and forest school. We could not have hoped for a better experience for them.

Great nursery - really innovative and caring. Great outdoor space. The staff are clearly recruited really carefully as they are all passionate about childcare. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. My children loved it and I felt good about leaving them in their care.

My daughter attended Becket Hall from the age of ten months until she started school. She has had many happy years here due to the excellent relationships she formed with staff and other children. The children seem to engage in a wide range of activities and she particularly enjoyed playing in the garden which is pretty large and very well equipped for a city centre nursery. Becket Hall involves the pre-school children in a wonderful initiative where they visit older people in a local care home. Other day trips involved attending forest school which was also a great experience. The Christmas concerts and the graduation ceremony were wonderful events for parents to attend. I felt my daughter was very well cared for during her time here and it was sad to see her leave!

My son attended Becket Hall from age six months, through to starting school at four. The moment I saw the outside space a Becket Hall I knew it was the place I wanted him to grow and flourish in and I am so happy with that decision. The staff are wonderful, so encouraging of the children's development.
There is a lovely community feel amongst the parents, I have developed great friendships, which has helped us all through four very busy years.
I couldn't recommend Becket Hall highly enough, it is a treasure hidden away in the city centre!

Becket Hall Day Nursery is a great environment for children to attend as a baby, and in preschool years. The staff are enthusiastic and caring, and the children are given many outlets to express themselves within the nursery and on trips out.
The record keeping of the nursery is detailed and helps assure you that your children are being kept very active physically and mentally.

Becket Hall Day Nursery is quite deceiving from the outside as it looks like it may have no outdoor space, however, the outdoor space is a great area! The children have lots to play with, rabbits, and a lovely little summer house where they can read. My daughter is now 2 and a half but has been attending Becket Hall since she was about 8 months. I think the best thing about Becket Hall is the staff. I feel confident and happy leaving my daughter with the staff, the atmosphere is always very positive and staff really do listen if you have any concerns or questions. I like that I get to see photos of what my daughter is up to, often making something fun!
