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 4.77 for Toad Hall Nursery Langley is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.77

  • 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 3.391 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toad Hall Nursery Langley is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 14.2 positive Reviews (71 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 14.2 Target = 0.141

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

My daughter had joined Toad Hall Langley nursery after having to leave another nursery due to a few problems we were facing with her development etc and Toad Hall embraced everything we had said and helped develop our daughter. We were so happy with the quality of care we received that we now have our son attend Toad Hall Langley and didn't think twice about it. He loves going to nursery and all the nursery teachers are lovely and welcoming, they keep you informed of your child's development. I have recommended this nursery to other parents who now send their children there.

I would highly recommend Toad Hall Nursery Langley. My son has attended this nursery since he was 10 months old and currently is still going to the nursery (23 months). One thing I love about the nursery is how accommodating the staff are. Initially, my son started with only one day which can be difficult for a child to settle into a nursery, however, the staff were excellent at making him feel at home.

As is regular in nurseries, staff move around from different rooms to support each other and I really appreciate the staff all having the same level of care and knowledge. If I have a different member of staff in my child's room, they make him feel comfortable and also make an effort to understand the child and the family and still give high-level feedback at pick up time.

My son has been attending this nursery since he was 9 months old and is now 17 months old and loves nursery! As a teacher, I had high expectations of the sort of nursery I wanted to send my son to and I visited 5 nurseries in the local area and this was by far the best. The staff are so genuine and lovely, and every member of staff will smile and say hello to me and my son whenever I drop him and pick him up.
The nursery has a happy jolly fun vibe. The care my son receives is just outstanding, and the communication is brilliant. The management team and brilliant they have answered all my queries and have always made me feel comfortable with asking any questions I need to. All the staff in the nursery know my son by name and it's great that he is treated as an individual. Since starting nursery my son has made unbelievable progress and no doubt this is down to the well qualified enthusiastic staff. Thanks to the manager and her team of carers for what they have done for my son.

As a mother of two with my eldest daughter and old pupil of the nursery. I was very confident enrolling my little 8 month old in order for me to start university. I don't regret the decision as the standard of care has been exceptional and I find the nursery to be a second home for my daughter who is in preschool now getting ready for main school next year. The quality of educational and psychological needs of my child has been meet with satisfaction.

My daughter loves going to nursery and she has grown so much in confidence, skills and vocabulary. She loves the activities and her carers make it great fun whilst giving her the opportunity to learn lots. She is excited to go to nursery every day, she is cared for, has made lots of friends and is always safe. The communication with the nursery is good and the carers as well as management make a real effort to keep you informed of progress and achievement, which is really nice. I can't recommend the nursery highly enough.

My son has been in this nursery for 19 months now and he absolutely loves it. The staff here are very professional and friendly. They took extra care to get my son adjusted and he loves it here. We are happy with his progress here. They call and check on my son when he is unwell at home. They take very good care of kids here and are a friendly lot. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Our son started going to the nursery as a 18-month-old and we are so elated with his progress that we have extended the number of days he spends there, starting this month as he turns two. It has been a gradual climb to happiness for our little one at Toad Hall Nursery and it is all thanks to the unlimited patience that the girls at the Nursery seem to have.

As a very nervous mother, I am so glad for all the help and support I receive from the excellent team at Toad Hall Langley in terms of his growth, wellbeing and overall development. I only wish I could give some of that back in the form of voluntary help to them.

It has been a delight to send our son to Toad Hall Langley and we would gladly recommend it to anyone who asks us for advice.

Great nursery.
I've had both my kids here since they were around 18 months old. My eldest is now in Y1. and youngest has another 6 months before reception starts.
Toad Hall has given both kids a great start for their academic life there learning and self confidence has been amazing. All staff are friendly and approachable and always willing to help.

My son started Toad Hall in January 2016, myself and my husband know that he is enjoying himself as he always comes home messy with paint on his hands . The staff are really friendly easy to talk about our child's development. Toad Hall provide various activities indoors and outdoors. My son loves to see the rabbits in the morning and says hello before going in for breakfast. I would recommend this nursery to anyone as you will always be greeted by warm smiling staff. The managers of the nursery are wonderful always willing to help with enquiries or concerns you have.

This is the 2nd time I have chosen Toad Hall, Langley to care for my child while we fulfill full time jobs. Care, assurance and nurturing is the only way to describe Toad Hall Langley, from the moment we walk in with the warm welcome from all of the staff, to picking up your happy smiling child at the end of the day, you know that you have your child in the best possible hands. Rooms are superbly organised, colourful displays, selection of toys with relevance to learning and development, organised activities from music, sensory to messy play, my child has exposure to everything he needs. The nursery take on board your own key objectives for your child and focus on supporting these through your child's day, for example social etiquette of sitting at a table with friends for breakfast, lunch and tea. The menu selection is varied and nutritious. My 1st born now 8 years old, thrived at Toad Hall Langley, they made the transition from the nursery environment to school extremely seamless. The preparation for school in the pre-school room is extremely well planned, organised, with a gentle introduction into independence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Toad Hall - Langley. Staff and Leadership team are wonderful!
