Overview

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Floral Place 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 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Floral Place Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.636 for Floral Place Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (216 Excellents x 5) + (93 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 321 Ratings = 4.636

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Floral Place Nursery is based on 7 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.833

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

9.5 Floral Place Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.469)

My daughter has developed at this amazing pace since starting this nursery. The staff have also been kind and empathetic to me as I teach myself to leave her for the first time.

My son absolutely loves his time at Floral Place Nursery, and I believe it is due to the warmth and care of all the staff. The staff are so friendly and you can see how strong their relationships are with the children. My son has come so far in his development and is a happy boy, due to the new opportunities that the team have planned uniquely for him. It makes me feel that my son is really nurtured. He has also developed better eating habits thanks to the meals prepared every day. He now tries new foods rather than push them away.

The nursery team also goes that extra mile for families when they have one of their big parties - what a treat for us as parents to be able to meet other families. Thank you for all that you do every single day Floral Place team. My day as a working Mum is all the easier knowing he is happy and safe.

My little boy is always so happy at nursery. He has learnt so much and experienced a lot of wonderful things that we could not have done at home with him. The staff from babies through to the toddler room have been so attentive to his needs. You know they really care about him. So much effort goes into making every day great and exciting. The nursery had a refurbishment and looks so fresh and new. Thank you for all you do for my little man.

My son has been at Florals Place since he was a baby. Through those years, he was able to develop his confidence and independence. The staff were always very positive, caring and nurturing. They always catered to his needs and interests. I would like to say a big thank you for preparing him for a big step starting reception class this year using Growing Programmes in the classroom. I can't imagine life without this nursery. We are looking forward to using Bright Horizons Holiday club in the summer.

My daughter has been coming to this nursery for 2 years and loves it. We have recommended it to several friends who now also send their children. My daughter is so happy to come and we see her confidence growing as she makes friends and learns new things in a really fun way.

It's a great place for my daughter. She enjoys Spanish class and a lot of the activities (sport, art crafts). The nursery staff support the children to learn new things. My daughter has been in Floral Place Nursery for 2 years and I see it was a very good decision to send her to this place.

My grandson has just started to attend Floral Place. The staff were very attentive to his needs during the settling in period. You get a real sense that the baby room team really care about the children. My grandson is always happy when I collect him and the team tell me all about the fun he has had. The whole nursery team are always smiling and helpful. The children are always busy with fun activities. It is definitely a fun, warm and safe environment for the children.

Our daughter attended Floral Place nursery from 2013 to 2016. She was in the nursery from the baby room all the way to pre-school, full-time Monday to Friday. She really enjoyed her time at the nursery and bonded well with all of her carers at each stage as well as the other children in the nursery. Her confidence and independence also grew as she progressed through the various groups/classes. She especially enjoyed her time once she moved to the pre-school class. All of her carers took such wonderful care of her and made her feel very welcome. We also liked the various weekly activities that were planned (e.g. Spanish lessons, "Tiny mites", etc). The premises are secure and clean. There is outdoor space for the children to play although more space would be nice (maybe take some from their office car park next door!).

My son settled into the baby room well and developed well during his time, building strong bonds with all the carers. The nursery supports him well and caters for all of his needs. His diet is restricted due to a few allergies and everyone is supportive and meals are catered for his needs. Now in the toddler room he is developing quickly and loves coming to nursery. The learning journal is a lovely way to keep parents up to date with his development and to see him learning through pictures.

My child has been at Floral Place Nursery since she was 9 months old. In that time she has grown to be a very confident, happy, sociable toddler. She has very strong bonds with all the staff and her learning and speech have gone on leaps and bounds. I would recommend this nursery while heartily to any parent.

My daughter attends the nursery part time and had a little trouble settling in but from the first moment I was extremely impressed with warmth and attitude of the staff. They are extremely professional and reassuring to a first time parent like me, but at the same time very loving to all the kids in the nursery. My daughter will attend the nursery full time eventually and i'm confident she will be well looked after and entertained.

The nursery is a very welcoming place, the children never want to leave at the end of the day because they are having so much fun! The children go home and talk about how they did learning numbers/letters with the two girls and what they did with their friends. They tell me about the Spanish they learnt. Overall wonderful experience.

My child really enjoys his days at Floral Place Nursery. Good food, good variation every day including music, time in the garden and quiet reading and playing. The staff are v. warm towards him- all welcoming him every morning when he arrives and waving goodbye at end of the day. I feel that he is well looked after and has fun. As parents we are kept well informed and v. happy.

My son's been at Floral Place Nursery for a year now (he's 19 months) and is very much at home here. He's very happy and the care he receives on a daily basis is very good. My only comment is that i'd appreciate more communication from the staff on my sons development and perhaps overall info/updates about the nursery which has started happening. The more they can tell us the better.

Great atmosphere, very friendly welcoming our child, learning great social skills in addition to quickly gaining language and physical abilities.

Would be great to have indoors area without shoes our child has had quite a few accidents lately, very satisfied overall with care, out child loves to come here and it is a great relief for us as parents to know she enjoys it.

marketa, Mrkg at Floral Place Nursery responded to this review on 12 May 2016:

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. I am going to share your comments with the Nursery Manager and ask her to address your areas of concerns.

My baby boy started the nursery full time when he was 8 months old. The team in the baby room were really sensitive to his needs and his adjustment was relatively quick. My husband and I received (and still do) a daily full report on everything he eats, does, experience and learn. His social, communicational and physical skills were significantly developed in his time in the nursery. The most important is that we can see how happy he is to come every day to the nursery. Last week he moved to the toddlers room and the adjustment from the baby room was smooth as well.

Since I walked through the Floral Place Nursery door I knew that I wanted my son to go there. All nursery staff are well educated and polite. They pay attention to children's development and care extremely well for each individually. My son is confident and learned a lot since he's attended Floral Place Nursery. Happy child, happy parents :)

Emma Chappell

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2014

Description:

Taking care of people, children or animals was something I knew I was always going to do for a living.
I worked with Special Needs children, prior to becoming a Primary Teacher but found myself missing caring for others.
Over 20 years later, I still find joy in caring for others. I am hugely passionate about helping our children to become happy, healthy and confident people but I am just as passionate about supporting our teams to greatness.
At the end of 2015, I gave birth to my son. As a first time Mum I didn’t really know what I was doing, despite all my years of working with children. It was overwhelming, but thankfully for the wonderful team at Floral Place, I found I could be a working Mum who remained passionate about wanting the best for all children. Now my son gets to be a part of something very special, and he just loves his time at Nursery.
I truly feel lucky to have this amazing responsibility.

Lenka Novotna

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2010

Description:

I joined Bright Horizons 11 years ago as a bank staff member when my career in childcare has started. I completed my childcare qualifications within the company and due to my performance and desire, was soon promoted to senior position preschool room manager and in 2010 to Deputy Manager just few months before my son was born. I can truly say that Bright Horizons has played a significant and very positive role in my son’s life. Throughout the years with Bright Horizons I was able to attend many training courses to help me progress in my job role. I was also given opportunities to support other Bright Horizons nurseries and also manage Floral Place nursery as acting manager.
I have always wanted to work with children as you can really help them develop in their early years and see them develop and progress from when they start in the baby room until they graduate with us. It makes me proud to see them grow and be part of their lives
