Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.417 for Haddenham Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.417

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.978 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Haddenham Day Nursery is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.978

  • 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 Haddenham Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.395) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.4 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time

It took some time for my daughter to settle into nursery but all staff were admiringly patient with her whilst she did, as well as being very supportive to both of us!
Whilst it would be nice to see less turnover of agency staff, and more consistent, permanent staff for the sake of the toddlers, I understand it’s not a quick process to resolve nor expected to be a long-term issue.
I’m happy I chose Haddenham Day Nursery and am confident my daughter is in safe hands when I leave her each week.

My son is very happy at Haddenham Nursery, great staff and lovely environment. I would like to see them offer toddlers and pre-school children a hot meal rather than sandwiches etc for their tea as often we don't get home until 6pm and by the time a hot meal is prepared my son is too tired to eat a meal.

My little girl has settled in really well, the staff got to know her and us very quickly and were very kind to her. Whenever I go to pick her up she is happily playing and I completely trust the staff to be kind and caring, if she is ever upset. They seem genuinely interested in her well-being and are always keen to tell me what she's been up to.

We have been using the nursery for nearly a year now and we are so impressed. The nursery has a lovely family feel about it. My daughter loves the outdoor time as well as the imaginative games and creative approach to learning. It has been a huge peace of mind leaving my daughter with such caring, warm and friendly staff. She really has come on leaps and bounds since joining. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone considering Haddenham Day Nursery.

My daughter has settled really well which has been such a relief so thanks to all the staff who have made her feel happy and secure. Right now I'd happily recommend the nursery and have done.

We love that this is a small nursery where children have the opportunity to get to know those in other rooms. All the staff are friendly and caring and a range of activities are provided each day. We particularly like the baking and outdoor play!

The staff are always very friendly and helpful. I always feel that my children are well looked after. I was disappointed, however, that the nursery has become less flexible with regards occasional discretionary swaps (of days in the week) as this feels ungenerous towards parents.

Thank you for your review.

We completely understand the disappointment over swapping of sessions, however, from a nursery point of view, this really is not possible to offer. We use our attendance patterns to plan occupancy, waiting lists, ratios etc. far in advance.
I understand that we do have the space available but we would be unable to constantly plan around swaps and changes especially with the amount of planning that goes into a week at a nursery.
I hope you understand our point of view.
Regards,

Iwona Strzyzewska-Tangri

Both our children have thoroughly enjoyed Haddenham Day Nursery. Regular reviews and feedback (daily) is useful.

Thank you for your kind words and your feedback.

The children enjoy a wide range of activities, indoor and outdoor and it is clear my almost 2 year old really enjoys his day. The staff are incredibly caring and build relationships with all children, not just those they are a key worker for. We are very happy leaving our son in their care.
