Reviews

8.1 Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.108)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.723 for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.723

  • 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 3.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.135

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

We love Little Monkeys. Both our children have really enjoyed it and are happy and confident. The food is always homemade, healthy and they eat it all! The staff are wonderful, it really feels like "we're all in it together", staff and families, to look after the children.

We've had 3 children at Little Monkey's and really feel the nursery has been an extension of our family for the last 6.5 years! Being a small nursery, they are very caring and nurturing and know each child individually, including their strengths and vulnerabilities and support them in the most important years of their development. Our children have spent many happy years at Little Monkey's. We'll miss all the carers when we finally leave!

My daughter has been at Little Monkeys from 7 months until now (3 years) and she really enjoys it. She is somebody who is slightly timid and Monkeys has really helped her to develop confidence. I kept her with Little Monkeys for her pre-school years because I really like the fact that she has such a bond with her carers and there is always at least one carer (usually 2 or 3) to greet her warmly in the morning and ask how she is today.

If she is feeling under the weather the carers take extra time to give attention so she always feels special and loved. The staff are all caring and informative, the food is great and I am happy with all aspects of her care. My daughter talks warmly about all of her carers when we are away from pre-school too. The staff notice if she needs extra stimulation and set her new tasks to keep her busy and learning and she is already writing her name and other words aged 3.5.

My daughter started the nursery only 3 weeks ago. I have visited quite a few - I ended up placing my daughter in Little Monkeys Nursery (Victoria Street). They were so accommodating around family and work commitments, they welcomed my daughter and introduced her into the nursery environment - that she refers to as her little school (she is 2 at the moment). The whole journey home my daughter talks about her day, refers to her friends and calls nursery staff by their names in her stories. Listening to her stories of how her day went - you couldn't be more happier when a child happily shares with you what they have explored. They go on a walks every day, watch trains, soldiers, plays activities I wouldn't have such creativity even to make it - you name it. She talks about everything she saw - even refers to colours or specific items she has spotted on her walk. Their Staff is so friendly, so caring about you as a family unit as well as the child, very professional. I am so pleased!

We switched to Little Monkey's Nursery from another nursery a year and a half ago and haven't looked back since! In addition to the regular events - Harry's Hoppers, Music & Movement, Paeng's Baby Yoga and Fun French, the staff make a real effort to arrange fun, engaging (and messy - they never get to play with shaving foam and glitter at home!) activities with different themes each day. They also try to take all the children outside for a walk around Windsor every day, which, in our view, more than makes up for the lack of outside space at the Victoria Street site. The food is excellent - delicious, nutritious and varied. There is some churn of staff, as there is at any nursery, but management at Little Monkey's Nursery take time and care to select staff that they are comfortable with, and that are a good fit with the rest of the team. Both our children are at Little Monkey's Nursery now. They both enjoy it tremendously and we are really comfortable with them being there.

Really lovely nursery, the staff are very friendly and genuinely care for the children. The food is very good and there is always a varied menu. Our daughter loves the activities at nursery and a lack of outside space is made up for by daily walks to the long walk, ducks and to see the changing of the guard.
