  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 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 4.646 for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor Park is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.646

  • 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 4.704 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor Park is based on 10 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 14.2 positive Reviews (71 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 14.2 Target = 0.704

  • 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 Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor Park has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.350)

Little Monkey's has been such a breath of fresh air for both my children. The staff and facilities are excellent and the grounds where the children play and develop are fabulous. The nursery have supported both of my children from the ages of 14months up to now where my son is about to start school in September. I cannot thank them enough for all their help and support over the years, a really friendly set of staff that look after your children the way you do as a parent.

Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor Park is a brilliant nursery. We visited plenty and for us, Little Monkey's stood out a mile. My son has been going for 7 months now and loves it. He only goes one day a week but settled in really quickly. Just goes to show how good the staff are. They’re always smiling and so does my son when he’s there. We feel very lucky that our son has a place at Little Monkey's.

Our daughter spent 4 years here and I don’t think she ever once cried at drop off or said she didn’t want to go! Our son is now in his second year here, he is more timid but his confidence has really grown since he started. The staff are excellent, friendly, welcoming and kind to the children. It’s hard to know much about the food quality, but my son does seem to have a lot of second helpings so I can only assume he likes it! Also, I think the garden is fab. Happy to recommend this lovely nursery!

The most important thing about a nursery to me is the staff and the Little Monkey's staff are fantastic. A pleasure to interact with, very enthusiastic, caring and capable. The facilities are also very good, the very large outside garden is a great space for the children and the different activities they do (gardening, Spanish, scrummies, music) are also a bit hit with my two children. I had some great support from my children’s key workers recently, especially when my eldest went through a stage of not wanting to come to preschool - the keyworker suggested ideas for ways to improve the situation and soon after he was back to happily going off to preschool. In the baby room, the staff are wonderful too and they do some really fantastic activities with the babies, new messy play and craft activities every week. The food being cooked fresh on site and the children having two proper hot meals a day is also a huge positive - I am amazed at how much my two will eat there compared with home.

Little Monkeys is under new management which has meant that there has been a bit of change and uncertainty.
Hopefully, we are coming out the other side but there has been quite a high turnover of staff.
Overall, the facilities and staff are good.
The activities, especially in preschool, are excellent.

Thank you for your review and we are pleased that you find the activities, particularly in pre-school, to be excellent. We are all working hard to improve the nursery and with the continued investment currently being made in the nursery, we hope that any future changes will be extremely positive for children and parents. Our Nursery Manager is highly experienced and leads a team of well qualified and enthusiastic Nursery Practitioners, who are all passionate about giving every child in their care the best opportunities to grow and develop.

My son has been so happy at this nursery and all the staff and reassured me every step of the way from when he started. From settling in as we all know can be difficult for mums and children they were so good and kept me updated on going up and changing rooms they've done the same. They're all more than willing to help with anything and are brilliant people to have round my son. He loves it there and enjoys his time there.

My daughter has been to Little Monkey’s since she was 9 months old.
After being turned down by a few childminders who deemed her too much additional work as she has some slight disabilities, I thought I would never find childcare. Taking her to Little Monkey’s was the best decision I could ever have made.
From day 1, her care has been nothing short of exemplary. Never had any tears being left there, loved every minute.
Her education has far exceeded my expectations knowing her ABCs, 123's and able to count to 20 in French and Spanish by the start of 2nd-year Preschool is amazing.
The staff are always consistently supportive of her needs and very inclusive in everything they do. I would describe Little Monkey’s as having a very homely feel to it, they care about the children as opposed to doing things just to get a tick in a box.

Very sad to leave Pre School but my daughter is now a very confident, caring and outgoing little girl despite her needs and very prepared for her new life at school. Highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

My son has attended nursery since March 2016, he started when he was 9 months old and has always loved going to nursery. The staff are caring and knowledgeable, they completely make me feel at ease when leaving my little one in their care. The nursery is a home from home, the staff listen to my wishes and when he was smaller, followed his home sleep and eating routine - now he is a toddler he follows nursery routine and thrives. The transition into the pre-toddler room was smooth and I was kept well informed. I have already attended two parents evenings and loved looking through his learning journey and seeing how he has developed, I am included in my child's learning and I know what is happening in the nursery and how I can support my little one at home - my son is always doing new things and I know nursery has supported him in achieving this. The outside space is amazing and my son goes out everyday. I highly recommend Little Monkeys.

When choosing a nursery, it can be so overwhelming - lots of options and such an emotional decision. I knew Little Monkeys would be right for my daughter as they have mastered the perfect balance between education/development plus fun/care. The staff here are phenomenal in helping babies settle in and they gave me great tips and support. Having an on-site chef and homemade meals epitomises the 'at home' feel to this nursery. My 9-month-old daughter is very happy here - smiles from drop off to pick up!

My daughter has attended Little Monkey's Nursery Windsor Park full time since she was 11 months and I couldn't be happier with the care that she gets there. She is now in the third room and the staff have been excellent in all of the rooms. She eats so well and most importantly goes in happily every day. The facilities are also great.
