  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 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 4.686 for Children's House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (187 Excellents x 5) + (71 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.686

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Children's House Day Nursery is based on 12 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.750

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

9.4 Children's House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.436)

Our Daughter has been at Children's House for 3 1/2 years. We've been very happy with the care and support that she's had in this period. Its also our local nursery and we believe you should support local facilities.

Amy Bennett at Children's House Day Nursery responded to this review on 02 May 2018:

Thank you, Rob, we love having your little girl here and watching her grow.

My daughter really enjoys coming to nursery 3 mornings a week, she never wants to leave when its home time. I love the range of activities that she gets involved in and it's really nice to see the artwork as a result of this.
The nursery as a whole is such a lovely and big space and the garden area is amazing. My daughter loves being outside so for them to have such a big outdoor space is brilliant for her.
The staff are always polite and welcoming and this makes me happy to leave her for the day to play.

Children's House is one of the best in the area. The teachers are very nice, warm and good with children. They are patient and very welcoming. There are times when the children are upset when parents are dropping them and the teachers are able to calm them down within minutes.

The staff at Children's House Day Nursery are fantastic. They are very good at settling new children and reassuring parents. The facilities are the best I've seen at a nursery with multiple outdoor play areas for different age groups and a sensory maze and buffalo trail. My son loves to find bugs on the buffalo trail. The management are very accommodating and allow me to book extra sessions at short notice when needed. Both my children have enjoyed being at Children's House and I believe their independence and social skills stem from the excellent care during their time at nursery.

The staff are an absolute credit to the nursery. They do so many activities with the children and my son is always excited to tell me how he has done. My son is a fussy eater but has since tried many foods. This has only been possible with the perseverance of a strong team and a real bond with key workers. I cannot recommend this nursery enough.

We live in the village so Childrens House is v convenient for us - as 1st time parents that wasn't enough to hand over our precious boy! We saw many nurseries but liked the personality of Children's House & the considered approach to settling in.
No nursery will ever give the level of care to your child that you will, nor have a 2:1 ratio per child that you do as parents. The team in the baby room have made our experience v positive. They were patient, understanding & supportive as we went through the nursery experience for the 1st time. They did multiple (free) settling in sessions until we felt happy he was ready for full time days. Every day we get a report of what he's eaten, nappy changes & activities. He certainly does more than on the average day at home! He's also developed in confidence, problem solving & language. We are in no doubt the nursery have a big part to play in that. We definitely feel we made the right choice for our little boy in Children's House.

Marvellous! Our daughter has been in the nursery since she was one. Now she is in the toddlers’ room and about to move to the next one. She just loves it there. When we arrive in the morning it is very reassuring how she happily runs towards the staff to greet them. They are always doing very interesting activities with the toddlers indoors and outdoors. She loves to play in the outside space. She sleeps well, eats very well and is a very content little girl. Overall our journey since she was in the baby room has been amazing. The staff has been always very supportive. We, as working parents, are very grateful to them.

My daughter, aged 2 years moved to this nursery from another one in Maidenhead when we moved into the area.

I have been amazed how well she has settled. She is a shy little girl who struggles with change and being away from me and her dad. I was very apprehensive about moving her but I need not have worried. She is settling in very nicely.

All the nursery teachers are so caring and the environment is excellent. There is so much for the children to do. Abby (sorry if I have the spelling wrong) is brilliant. Jess loves her.

I am very pleased that we found Children's House and I recommend anybody looking for a caring, stimulating, fun and safe place to place their child looks no further than here.

Amazing! My daughter of 20 months has been going to the nursery since she was one. She absolutely loves it and has come on leaps and bounds since attending Children's House. She's always happy and constantly singing. The staff are very friendly and fantastic with her. There's so much space for her to play and learn. The outdoor garden space is so spacious, lots of things for her to see and play with. My daughters eating habits have improved greatly. Having a chef on board means she gets to try fresh healthy food every week. Would highly recommend Children's House Nursery to every parent.

Our son started at Children's House Nursery in March 2016 in the baby room (he was 9 and a half months old) and we've seen a noticeable difference in his confidence with other children. The staff have welcomed him with open arms and have made us as first time parents very comfortable in leaving him in their care. We love the space the babies and children have at this nursery and was one of the main reasons we chose it.

There are always lots of activities to keep the children occupied and help them with their development. Our son has improved with his crawling and now nearly - walking skills. Whatever stage your child is at, the staff help to encourage them and give you daily updates as to their progression. A wonderful nursery to be a part of and am thoroughly happy we chose it!

Both of my sons now attend the nursery and I couldn't ask for better care for them. The staff are always very friendly and have helped my eldest son to become a confident young boy who looks forward to going to nursery. My youngest son has been made to feel really welcome and we can tell he enjoys his days there. It is lovely to know that they are in such a good environment with wonderful outdoor space and lots of knowledge at their fingertips provided by such caring nursery staff.
