Reviews

8.7 Childcare 4 U Marlow has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.731)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Childcare 4 U Marlow is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Childcare 4 U Marlow in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 5 for Childcare 4 U Marlow is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.731 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Childcare 4 U Marlow is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.231

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

All 3 of our children have attended Childcare 4 U Marlow and have loved it.

We are so impressed with the staff and organisation of the nursery. They are fantastic at stimulating the children and we think the activities they do are very creative and help the children to develop in all aspects.

The meals are enjoyed as well, with seconds often requested.

We feel Childcare 4 U has been instrumental in bringing our 3 children up with creative, inquisitive minds as well as good social behaviours and we are very grateful. Thank you.

Our decision to put both our daughters into Childcare4u from 6 months is a testament to the excellent childcare they offer. They love all the well thought through activities. We have seen them develop every day through the love, care, encouragement and dedication of the staff into happy, confident little people.

The menus are approved by a nutritionist and cooked on the premises by a chef. My daughter always talks about what yummy food they eat and what they made with their chef.

My oldest child went off to school in September and after completing her first week at school she was given 'Star of the Week' for being kind and caring and being an excellent helper as well as settling in so well. This shows the excellent job they do preparing the children for school. The school couldn't have been more complimentary on how school ready our child was.

They get more variation and stimulation from day to day than I would ever be able to provide at home.

We have been parents at Childcare4U for nearly 3 years now and we have a child in the Pre-school and in Baby Room. They are trained to do baby massage which my daughter loves and my son participates in French lessons as well as Pilates and fitness groups. I couldn't recommend them enough!

Our children are extremely happy and have so much fun with the ladies who work there. To be able to go to work knowing they are safe, well cared for and continually developing due to the constant attention and love from the staff is priceless! As a family, we adore their family fun day every summer where they have races and activities back at nursery. Their brand new garden is fantastic!

They always endeavour to help out with any extra days we may need due to work commitments, nothing seems to be too much trouble. All in all a safe learning environment that you can count on!
