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 4.574 for Wolverton Day Nursery at Wyvern School is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.574

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wolverton Day Nursery at Wyvern School is based on 6 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.714

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

Both my boys love going to nursery. They run in to see both their friends and teaching staff. They get involved in various activities and love the range and variety of these.
My eldest is currently attending Forrest School and is extremely animated about all the things he's learnt.
Both I and my husband are thrilled with the care, love and teaching the boys receive - we wouldn't have them anywhere else.

My son attends Wolverton Day Nursery on a Friday only and all staff members have been brilliant in settling him in and helping him to develop. He has such a wonderful time at nursery and I would highly recommend the nursery to others.

Staff at Kids Play Wolverton are caring, friendly and understand the individual children's needs and capabilities.
I am regularly updated as to the progress of both my boys and staff are also able to give me good and bad updates on their behaviour providing advice for things to try at home too.
Both boys run into nursery each day and have excellent relationships with both their key worker and buddy.

My son moved from the baby room where he had been since Oct 2013 to the pre-school room in Sept 2015, he found the change very difficult but the staff at Kids Play could not have been more supportive, helpful and/or caring. It took a couple of weeks but he is now very settled and relaxed in pre-school and his confidence and temperament have grown and improved as a result of the change.
The nursery has a new manager who has made lots of improvements, under the previous manager the OFSTED rating went from satisfactory to good and I have no doubt that the improvements will continue to have a positive impact on the whole nursery.
I think nursery choice is a very personal one depending on your parenting style etc but I would not hesitate to recommend Kids Play at Wolverton.
The day rates are not the cheapest but the location and session times suit me very well.
