Reviews

9.9 Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.892)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) 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 39 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 4.892 for Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) is calculated as follows: ( (417 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 464 Ratings = 4.892

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) is based on 22 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). 22 Reviews ÷ 14.2 Target Reached = 1

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

My son absolutely loves Oaktree and is excited every time he goes and always tells me he had lots of fun!
Only constructive criticism is that the memo sent should be every Monday, the way it was when my elder son was at Oaktree 2015-2016. He also used to receive reading books weekly for parents to read at home too, which my son at the moment does not get.
Overall I am really happy with the nursery, as my son is happy and I have recommended to many people and will continue to do so. Thank you to all the staff for making this a clean, safe and fun environment for all the children.

Julie Wilson, Area Manager at Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) responded to this review on 04 Oct 2017:

Thank you for leaving a review, we really appreciate your great feedback.

On occasions we have missed sending out our weekly memo and this is something we have now rectified.

The nursery is holding a ‘school readiness’ evening on 24th October and reading bags, with share at home reading books, will be introduced following this.

We moved our toddler to Oak Tree in March 2017 and are delighted with how he has progressed in that time!

The staff are all lovely and incredibly supportive of our child's development and he has come on leaps and bounds in the time he has been at the nursery.
Not only do they focus on the more academic side of learning through play and more structured learning activities, they also ensure that the children keep active and love that as well as lots of time outside in the garden area, they have an external sports coach that comes in every week to teach the children different sports. My little one absolutely loves it!

The staff are always available to speak to at both drop off and pick up times should we have any questions and we always receive a detailed account of what our little one has been up to during the day, in terms of activities, food and sleep etc. We also love that we can see pictures and development logs on the parent portal and the weekly memos are great!

This nursery and its team have an amazing family feel, like a home from home, my son has been so happy and relaxed here, instead of crying when I drop him off (like his old nursery) he cries when I pick him up because he never wants to leave. My son has come on leaps and bounds with his learning since joining the structured and fun pre school room. Can't say if value for money as my son was funded only.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 7 months old. Leaving her as a baby was hard but I felt immediately at ease with the carers and I have seen her grow in leaps and bounds under their care. Moving from the Baby Room to Ladybirds has made my daughter a confident and independent little girl. The food provided is second to none.
My daughter is happy and with only being in nursery 3 days a week we get quality time too.

He has such an amazing relationship with a few of the girls in Bumble Bees you can really tell the among of time and effort they have put into him.

Oak Tree Day Nursery provides a warm, caring and happy environment for my 15 month old son who attends for 4 days per week.
All of the staff in the Caterpillar room are brilliant and he goes into nursery smiling every day. The range of activities e.g. sensory play, outdoor play, music etc. are great and I have seen a huge difference in my son's confidence since starting at Oak Tree.
As a parent, I really like the Parent Zone app and feel that I'm kept up to date with everything he's done in the day. Overall, I can't rate Oak Tree Nursery highly enough!

Oak Tree Day Nursery has made both myself and my son feel extremely welcome and made this very difficult time of leaving my son in nursery and myself returning to work a real breeze. My son has adapted to life at nursery so quickly and absolutely loves his days at Oak Tree. All the staff are genuinely caring and kind and I could not speak more highly of them.

The staff are very professional and caring. We always get plenty of feedback about how our child has done on their day at nursery.
The indoor environment is spacious and there are lots of books and toys. Outdoors, the garden has plenty of room and activities for the children.
The food is nutritious and is of good quality and variety.
Communication with parents is good, and we get a weekly update detailing what is planned.
We are very happy with this nursery.

I cannot recommend Oak tree enough, my children started in October, 1 had special needs and nothing is ever to much trouble. My boys absolutely love the outside and inside areas of the nursery, it is more like an additional family, not just people who look after my children. I know they are safe and cared for which is the most important thing.

There is a wide variety of activities for the children to do and every day it is wonderful to see the joy and excitement in the children's faces after their great day.

Oak Tree is highly recommended.

My little girl absolutely loves it here. When she first started there were plenty of tears but the team are so fabulous that it didn't take long for her to settle. Now she goes in full of smiles and legs kicking with excitement. Since joining Oak Tree my daughter has gained so much confidence and developed so many new skills. She's stimulated and well cared for.

The children that I care for have attended Oak Tree for a year now and in this time, they have really thrived from their experiences they have had there.

From the daily planned activities, free flow to the garden area and lovely meals that they eat. I always feel welcomed to the room and the staff give me a hand over about their day which gives me the information to continue meeting their needs when in my charge.

Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) has provided a brilliant start to my son's pre-school education. My son found it very difficult to settle in at first as he was so used to being with me. The staff at Oak Tree have really helped us as a family to overcome his initial worries and within no time he has settled and loves every minute of his time there. With patience and care, the staff have helped him to build up relationships with all of the staff and children. The nursery is a safe, happy and friendly environment. His development goes from strength to strength and we are excited to see him grow and progress.

Our daughter has come on leaps and bounds since attending Oaktree Nursery. We were nervous about her attending nursery at such a young age (9 months). The team have been absolutely fantastic in keeping her entertained and us informed.

She enjoys a variety of activities, whether that’s painting, sensory play and eating! The all round quality of Oaktree is second to none. The staff are friendly, caring and attentive. There are a number of ways that they let us know how our daughter is progressing - whether that's through the ParentZone mobile app, an end of day report, a quick chat in the morning or evening, or through attending one of the nursery's Open Days.

Oaktree Nursery offers a perfect blend of learning and playing at a really competitive price.

My son currently attends Oak Tree and has done since he was a baby. The nursery itself is bright, clean and like a home away from home. The staff in his room welcome him every morning with smiles and cuddles and I feel 100% comfortable leaving him there. He was a picky baby and not great with strangers but he has flourished under the care and attention he receives from the staff and now quite often wants to know why we aren't going to nursery on a Saturday morning! The meals are varied and I appreciate that the children receive a proper meal for dinner as well as lunch. The nursery stays involved with parents via regular parent meetings and weekly emails about what's going on in the nursery which is great because I can often discuss with my son what he will be getting up to at nursery next week. I would recommend Oak Tree for anyone who likes that homely feel for their child and a real sense of love from the staff.

My daughter is thriving in the Bumblebee room. She loves coming to nursery and always receives a warm welcome. We are very happy with the care and education that she receives at Oak Tree.
The food is very nutritious and our daughter often mentions the kitchen assistant and likes to wave to him in the kitchen on her way home.

Our baby boy has been with Oak Tree Day Nursery since he was 5 months old. He is now 22 months. All of the staff are extremely loving and caring and attentive to him. They always celebrate his achievements with so much enthusiasm. Oak Tree staff keep us very well informed of all his daily activities, food intake (which is so healthy and yummy and wonderfully cooked on site) and nappy changing. It is a joy to see how much he has developed in nearly 1 and half years when we look through his dossier. The range of toys and activities is very broad, to keep little people happily learning. The garden space is divided so that every room has their own little space, where they explore colours, textures, sounds, nature. We are very happy with the nursery and would certainly recommend it.

We had a bit of a rocky start, partly because my son was unsettled (first time in nursery) and partly through lack of communication during change of manager. However I think we have now got over the hurdle and we have had a massive turnaround and I now feel absolutely delighted with this nursery. I feel that on occasions there is a lack of resources e.g paper, working pens etc but overall this is simple to resolve. I would like to see my sons learning log now that we have been here 9 weeks.

Lorna Harrison, Deputy Manager at Oak Tree Day Nursery (Finchampstead) responded to this review on 28 Jun 2016:

Thank you for your feedback on our Nursery. I will organise for your Learning Journey to be shared with you as soon as possible and I am also pleased to be able to inform you that in the coming months we are moving to an online Learning Journey system. This will include the facility to view all observations, developmental progress and pictures, online and at your own convenience. We will be writing out to parents soon with more information.
I will have a look into the resourcing issue you mention to resolve this quickly.
I am pleased to hear that your son is settled and that you are now delighted with the Nursery.

Great nursery and amazing staff! My son is finishing his first year there and now moving from Bumblebees to Pre - school. There is great SENCO rep - my little one has hearing aids and she was looking after him from the very first day. He loves spending time at nursery and he absolutely adores her! If you looking for great nursery - look no further!

Oak Tree Nursery is an excellent facility, the staff are extremely competent and nurturing to the children. My girls love their time spent there and are always happy to go. The food provided is excellent and the variety is very good. Management is also very helpful and available to discuss any concerns or answer any query. I am glad my girls have the opportunity to be part of the Oak Tree environment.

Pre-school room is fantastic. My son is so happy at nursery and regularly tells us. The quality of staff in the room are excellent, my only challenge is getting time at the end of the day to discuss my son in detail (this is not all the time but on occasions) as is mainly due to a popular pick up time but staff moving around rooms.
Quality of learning is excellent with key topic areas identified and shared very well with children. An overall excellent experience. I have been using Oaktree for 8 years and it had highs and lows. I feel like I have got the great Oaktree back with it's current team.

My daughter has started in Oak Tree in February and has really loved it from day 1. The staff are lovely and made her feel so welcome. Having moved a long way from overseas we were afraid our daughter might find it difficult to settle in a new nursery but she loved it from the beginning. She really loves the wonderful outdoor play area in particular.

Both my daughters have attended this nursery and we all absolutely love it. My daughter is always well looked after and I'm content leaving her. We have both grown a bond with our key worker, she is wonderful key worker as are some of the other ladies who help to look after my daughter. I will be safe when she no longer comes here.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to nursery to the point she's upset when it's Saturday. The special relationships built between my daughter and the staff are so special in different ways. We have 8 months until we begin school and I have to say I'm dreading leaving!
Oaktree primary school?? Please!!

My experience with Oak Tree has been wonderful, I couldn't ask for a better nursery. Being working parents, my 3 year old daughter attends Oak Tree full time. The staff in Oak Tree are professional and experienced, they have helped my child to learn and grow to be more independent. It has been nice to be able to discuss with the staff to get practical advice during challenging times I experienced with my daughter. The staff and nursery manager really look out for us and are so caring. Thank you Oak Tree and all the staff working here! I would definitely recommend this nursery, you wont be left disappointed.

I am one of the parents of a child attending Oak Tree. My son is about to complete his first term at Oak Tree and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and the business for everything. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time and I have seen him develop many new skills. He really enjoys his sessions at nursery and as a parent this is all you can ask for. All the staff have been very helpful and friendly throughout. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

Oak Tree is a fantastic nursery and as an auntie I am never felt to feel unvalued, the team are caring and clearly love my niece. I was asked security questions on my visits when I first started to collect my niece and this made myself and sister very happy. We both cannot fault the team and the happy and passionate staff. The manager will take time to answer any questions and cares for all of the family going above and beyond her role. An absolutely beautiful nursery that I highly recommend.

Both of my grandsons have attended Oak Tree. I find the nursery very welcoming, warming as soon as you walk through the door. Everyone that works there are very kind, caring, understanding, good listeners, will work with each child to meet their full potential.
My grandsons have really benefited from attending nursery.

Oak Tree has great atmosphere and is warm welcoming as soon as you walk through the door. My oldest son come he when he was 9 months old loving every day that he was here. That's why my second son now goes to Oak Tree he also came at a early age, the nursery can not be faulted, the growth, skills and development of both my boys coming here has been outstanding and I can't thank the girls enough for all their hard working, caring manner, their skills and knowledge and artist ways off helping my boys grow also for being very approachable and understanding.
My Son likes coming to nursery I tend to normally have a job getting him to go home as he wants to stay and play.
The home cooked food that is cooked on the premises is a hit with my son.
The management is fabulous to, again easy approachable, caring will solve any inquiries that I may have straightaway.
I would 100% recommended Oak Tree to others.
