The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Holland Park Pre-Prep School & 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 Holland Park Pre-Prep School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.822 for Holland Park Pre-Prep School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (88 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.822

  • 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 3.7 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holland Park Pre-Prep School & Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.200

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

My 4-year-old girl has just 'graduated' from Holland Park Pre-Prep School. She has had a great few years there. Holland Park Pre-Prep School has really prepared her for reception and life in general. The school really helped her be happy and explore life's curiosities from incubating and handling baby chicks, playing in the garden, regular visits to museums, parks, fire stations etc. The staff are really caring and she has started reading and writing ahead of her starting proper school.

I couldn't be happier and more satisfied with Holland Park Pre-Prep School. It has been so reassuring having long days at work, whilst knowing that she is being looked after so well, learning and socialising with other children from a wide variety of different cultures.

I am so happy to have found this nursery, it is like home from home. The staff are wonderful and the food fabulous. My son can eat for England and it is all freshly prepared by a lovely cook. They have animals and chickens which have helped him be gentle and kind. My son makes straight for the playground which has a big slide and bikes. I love it.

We are absolutely delighted with this choice of school for our 1yr old son. He only started a few of months ago but settled quickly within a couple of weeks and never stops smiling we we drop him off and collect him which is a testament to how much fun he has here. The teachers are warm, friendly and caring towards all the children in his class and their attention to detail is fantastic. We are given a detailed description of his day when we collect him and we are so impressed by the quality of food and resources that the children have access too every day. He seems to be learning a huge amount and often comes home with some form of artwork which is wonderful! Physical, social and emotional skills are all covered in a balanced way and we rate the school 'Outstanding' and have already been recommending it to all our friends!

My son was previously looked after by a nanny until he was 3 years old. Subsequent to this, we took the decision to send him to Holland Park Pre-Prep School, referred to us by a good friend. The teachers were excellent at transitioning our son to nursery. He settled very well with their help and we were kept informed of his progress at that time. Since he has been attending the school, we have seen a big positive difference in him. His confidence has grown, his communication skills improved and he has been able to come out of his shell. We would like to thank everyone at the school for their help, through this significant change in his life.

We have all our 4 children at this nursery and are very happy with this decision. Our children love going there and found a lot of friends there. It offers a wide range of activities plus music, french and spanish lessons, and the environment feels safe and stimulating. Staff are very welcoming and helpful, it feels like a family for us. The flexibility is great and everyone is very solution orientated. Healthy, homemade fresh food is offered every day for lunch and if the children attend the afternoon club for supper as well.

Our 2-year old daughter spends five days a week here from 8am to 6pm - and she absolutely LOVES it. Breakfast/reception is very nice and the kids often hug each other when they arrive. There are always at least 2-3 staff members available. The daily schedule is very interesting (including outdoor space and external activities such as farm visits) and our daughter gets so much from it. She is far advanced compared to toddlers from other nurseries, or with nannies. The nursery is very central and very safe and has an excellent chef - including for the parent-teacher sessions ;-). Management is highly professional and very smart. In our view - and we know several other nurseries in the area - this nursery deserves an OUTSTANDING rating.

HPPS has taught and nurtured my children to be happy, confident, polite and naturally inquisitive. From the moment they step in, it feels like a second home to my kids and they love the little quirks that make the place special like the ducklings and guinea pigs, the sports days and the home-cooked food.

They both entered as babies at around 6 or 7 months and the oldest is now in the the pre-prep and has had a really strong start to his education.
