Reviews

9.1 The Jungle Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.131)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for The Jungle Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Jungle Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.622 for The Jungle Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.622

  • 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 4.509 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Jungle Day Nursery is based on 11 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.509

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

Both my son and daughter go to the nursery. My son has been there from baby room to pre-school. They both love it. They have had times they don't want Mummy to go but the staff are fantastic with them giving them reassurance.
When my little boy has been changing rooms they have done lots of settling sessions to help that progression. Make it feel more of a flow and not a big jump. Staff are always friendly, helpful and work with parents as well as the children.

Our daughter really enjoys nursery, she teaches us the songs she learns and tells us about her day. I would like the quality of the food to be improved but it is varied and they try new things.

Any questions and queries and complaints are dealt with quickly and professionally. Our daughter has come on a long way since she started nursery at 8.5 months old.

Really good nursery, brought my daughter on a lot, very friendly staff who encouraged her to mix with other children and joining in doing things together, really brought her out of her shy zone. My daughter really enjoys The Jungle Nursery and can't wait to come the following day, comes out every time with a big smile, enjoys her days always.

The Jungle has been really good. My son really struggled to settle but they have been brilliant. I always felt confident leaving him and knew I would be contacted if necessary. They always keep me well informed. He loves it now, he eats well and can always tell me what activities he's enjoyed. He has good consistent relationships.

The fact my little girl (nearly two) cheers each time we pull into the nursery car park is testament to the Jungle Nursery team in itself!

My daughter has been at Jungle Nursery for nearly a year, and we love it. The staff are professional but you can see they genuinely care about the children and their interests. The facilities are great, spacious and well kept. My daughter is happy and evidently learns a lot at Jungle Nursery. Overall I would highly recommend the Jungle Nursery to anyone looking for high quality childcare.

My little girl started nursery in Nov 2015, very unsure at first whether it would be a good idea. Was unsure whether she'd pick up bad habits from other children in all honesty, but really wanted her language to pick up and build her social skills. Jungle Nursery staff have been outstanding and not only made my little girl excel with her language but she now shows empathy and can relay everything she has done that day with staff and her friends at nursery.

Not only have they supported me (mummy) giving outstanding advice and support but made my little girl so happy to go to nursery that she doesn't even give me a kiss good bye from excitement to play with her friends. Highly recommended by anyone having doubts, best thing I've ever done for building my confidence as a mummy and making my little girl develop in an amazing time scale. Thank you so much, from nursery staff to management your all amazing and go above and beyond to make everyone happy.

My son loves going to nursery and I have felt completely at ease returning to work full time knowing that he is happy, settled and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful and have helped make the transition so much easier for both myself and my son. The management have been supportive and accommodating in changing days and working around my changing needs. Highly recommend.
