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 4.854 for Hendon Preparatory School Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.854

  • 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 4.152 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hendon Preparatory School 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 4.6 positive Reviews (23 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 4.6 Target = 0.652

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

Reviewer Connection to Hendon Preparatory School Nursery

  • Mother of Child

I have been very happy with the school. Our child has thrived in this warm and nurturing environment. The teachers have provided excellent support to our child’s development and has matured as a result. There is a good balance between academia and play. Phonics, maths lessons, tennis and forest school are good examples of this. I cannot recommend the pre-school highly enough.

The Early Years Lead and Deputy Manager are brilliant! They are so caring and nurturing but also aim to help children progress academically which I consider important. My son settled in so quickly - which is unusual for him! He really looks forward to attending which is a testament to the staff.

This is a wonderful pre-school. The learning that takes place there is amazing. Every day the children do so many varied activities and my daughter comes home with a smile on her face having learnt loads of new things. Academically the Pre-School is fantastic and every day children do phonics and Maths learning, in a really fun way. They also have French, Classics, Music, ICT, Teddy Tennis, Dance and Art, all taught by specialist teachers. The atmosphere is busy, calm and happy! The Head of the Pre-School is a truly inspirational leader. I feel so lucky that my daughter can go to this Pre-School!

We are absolutely delighted with this choice of school for our 3-year-old daughter. The teachers are warm, friendly and caring towards all the children in her class and their attention to detail is fantastic. We are so impressed by resources that the children have access to every day. She 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!
