Reviews

9.4 Noel Park Day Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.442)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Noel Park Day Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Noel Park Day Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.861 for Noel Park Day Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (126 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.861

  • 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 4.581 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Noel Park Day Care Centre is based on 5 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.581

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

What I liked most about this nursery was the sense of community and that is put into each individual child. My son settled in well and made friends. I also made friends with other parents through activities organised by the nursery. My son enjoyed himself there, learning songs and stories which he shared with me. There is a wonderful atmosphere and a great benefit to the children.

When my daughter started nursery she didn't speak English. The nursery was so supportive learning words in Polish to help her feel more comfortable as well as easing her into the English language with a special language group she was part of. She settled in so well and now speaks good English. Everyone is really welcoming and helpful.

Our son has been attending Noel Park nursery since the age of 12 months. He has been there for around 9 months now and the only reason he is leaving the nursery is because we are moving out of London.

This nursery has been great and we are so sad we have to say goodbye! Our son settled really quickly in the beginning which was so reassuring after I started back to work. He has really thrived in this environment and has rapidly developed his speech and social skills. He has also learnt lots of songs which he frequently sings (loudly!) when we're out and about! The staff are so friendly, nurturing and helpful and the open plan nature of the nursery gives it a family feel which is lovely.

I would highly recommend this nursery!

Both my kids and my niece attended this nursery. My daughter joined after one month in another nursery which was horrible. The staff at Noel Park Day Care Centre helped her settle down very quickly. The nursery became my kids second home naturally. The nursery is such a happy place for any child to grow up in and learn. The staff is one of the most professional and caring one, especially the manager.

First of all, headmistress is very helpful and friendly. My child had a wonderful year there and has improved social skills as well as other activities. The only downside is that the nursery seems a little small compared to the number of children they have and seems short of staff.

Jennifer Matthias, Nursery Manager at Noel Park Day Care Centre responded to this review on 19 Oct 2016:

In response to the assumption that the setting might seem small for the number of children and seem short of staff. We are registered for 43 children at any one time but it is our deliberate policy not to have up to 43 children at any one time. Therefore the nursery cannot be too small for the number of children. We also have a deliberate policy to have at least 12 members of staff working directly with the children at any given time. This is a far higher ratio than recommended by OFSTED. We also have a pool of students on long-term placement from colleges. The setting is free flow, giving access to a large and well resourced outdoor area.

In conclusion, we disagree with this assumption.

Noel Park Day Care Centre provided great support and development to our daughter and will be sending our 2nd daughter here as well. Great staff and atmosphere, professional and clean, friendly.
