  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.921 for Woodlands Day Nursery (Milton Keynes) is calculated as follows: ( (422 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 456 Ratings = 4.921

  • 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 Woodlands Day Nursery (Milton Keynes) is based on 15 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 1.000

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

The staff are warm and welcoming to both children and parents. The activities in the room look fun and exciting. The menus are well balanced and my child seems to like the food as I'm told quite often he has second helpings! My child has grown in confidence with help from his key worker, especially in the last few months. I highly recommend Woodlands!

The staff are amazing. When I speak to friends about Woodlands the most common phrase I use is 'if I couldn't have got my daughter into Woodland Day Nursery I wouldn't have sent her anywhere else and returned to work'. I feel totally comfortable leaving my daughter in the care of the girls and know that they look after her just as well as I do. As a returning parent, I think the forest area is such a great addition to the facilities and is such a useful learning tool for children of nursery age.

We are very happy with the care the nursery is providing for our son. All of the staff have proved to be extremely welcoming to us as parents and have ensured that we are fully informed of everything that is done as part of our sons day to day care. All staff have shown a huge commitment to his wellbeing and have been incredibly accommodating with all questions and requests. Feedback has gone both ways on a daily basis, which has greatly helped our confidence levels. I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to others.

From the first time of my daughter joining Woodlands, the care/standards have been excellent. We get a daily report as well as being able to access the online portal to see how she is getting on - it's fantastic. The nursery manager is both professional and supportive especially towards my wife, who has just returned to work. She and the rest of the staff really understand us as parents, as well as the children. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Woodlands to friends and family.

My son was preparing to move from Caterpillars to Ladybirds. I was quite worried as he had grown fond of the staff in Caterpillars.
In all of his settling sessions in Ladybirds, he was so happy. Never any tears or problems.
He loves being in Ladybirds and all the feedback I get back each time is fantastic.

Putting our children into Woodlands Day Nursery was one of the best decisions we have made. My children love it there and have made such lovely friendship groups! It's great to hear from my children what they have done each day from making potions to finding trolls in the forest. My children have become such confident and independent little people due to the activities they do! My son has just left for school and the graduation was amazing, they know every single child so well and I know he has left ready for school! We love that all the food is made fresh on the day and that there is variety in what they are eating. I will always recommend Woodlands Day Nursery!!

All four of my Grandchildren have attended Woodlands Day Nursery with two still attending today and I wouldn't recommend anywhere else, it is truly outstanding. The love and care that they have received from the truly amazing practitioners shows in how confident little people they are today.
All the food is made fresh on site and they happily have seconds most days!
I love hearing what they have been doing especially looking for the Gruffalo in the forest area to playing with the footballer!

My two boys (18 months and 3 and a half years) love coming to nursery every day. Staff are warm and friendly and always have a smile on their faces. The facilities and outside space (including the forest school) are amazing and my boys do not hesitate to eat at least 2 helpings of their lovely food every day.

I was so pleased Woodlands decided to offer the 30 free hours as that makes such a difference to working families. For a 5 a day 7.30-18.30 only closed bank holiday = amazing value for money!!

Both our children have attended Woodlands and after 7 years of using their fantastic service, it was a very emotional goodbye as our youngest starts school. The staff are simply outstanding, kind, caring, friendly and professional. They really do treat each child as an individual!
The environment is light and airy with well thought out resources. Outside the new forest area provides a fantastic unique learning space and the food is fresh, healthy and child-friendly. It really is outstanding!!

Great nursery. My daughter loves going and her learning development has been excellent.
One member of staff has been particularly good and has been with my daughter for 3 years now. We often ask her to give our daughter a one on one chat to help with problems at home (sleep, behaviour etc) and it works.

I appreciate the valuable one to one time the teachers give to each child.

Woodlands Nursery is a place to recommend to everyone. Very good organisation, very good activities to develop babies skills.
Friendly staff, approachable, easy to discuss with them and to go along and see them.
Parent zone programme online is very helpful for parents and it is easy for me seeing my daughter that she is getting on OK and she is happy, playing and learning new things daily.

I find the team at Woodlands excellent and I know my daughter has flourished because of the service that they provide. The opening of the Forest school this year has been an added bonus and is a fantastic facility. Having been right through nursery since the age of one I will have no hesitation at enrolling my newborn son when the time comes.

I cannot rate Woodlands highly enough. The standard of care is exceptional, run by the brilliant and highly organised Manager. The girls make every day a joy for the children, with boundless energy, brilliantly structured activities and the right amount of care and cuddles when required. They get lots of fresh air and the new Forest School is an excellent addition to the outdoor play area. My daughter absolutely loves it there and having experienced other nurseries, I can say wholeheartedly that this really is an exceptional one.

I have 4 children and all of them loved coming to the nursery. During these 7 years, I have been visiting the nursery on a daily basis. Everything has been spot on. Perfect and amazing. The activities they can freely choose to do are so well organised!! The staff is lovely, the facilities without any doubt, the best ones in Milton Keynes. The nursery is overall truly outstanding. Everyday I know my kids are in the best hands, enjoying every minute there. Food also superb!!

We also wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Woodlands Nursery for all the wonderful care you have provided for both my children over the last 6 years. They have both loved coming to nursery and have grown into confident, sociable and happy children during their times at Woodlands. They have had the best start to their education that we could have hoped for. It has also been extremely reassuring to us over the years to feel confident that our children were being cared for in a very safe, comfortable and genuinely caring environment. We can't thank you enough.

My grandson has thrived under the care of the staff at Woodlands Day Nursery. All staff are kind and caring also very flexible in offering alternative session where possible. Extra attention was given to his speech development with referral to outside agencies. This has helped with the transition for school. Food is excellent with a wide varied range and children are encouraged to self-select. A fab party was thrown at the end of year for the children graduating and leaving for school. Would 100% recommend this nursery.

Both my daughters have attended Woodlands Day Nursery from babies to school leavers. Throughout their time here, I have seen them both develop and grow with the staff and wonderful team. The children are all individuals and are cared for with love, understanding of needs and care. My girls have formed many strong bonds with the staff along their nursery journeys. I have been delighted with Woodland and would recommend a thousand times over to anyone.

Handing my little boy over to a nursery after 12 lovely months seemed daunting. My boy was a little on the sensitive side and struggled with solids (highly sensitive gag reflex). we visited five different nurseries and Woodlands to us just seemed like the perfect place. Dedicated, well trained and caring staff, great facilities and a lovely atmosphere helped my little boy to settle super quick. His eating improved by the day and meal times started to become a real joy. He has developed socially a lot too, not being scared of other kids anymore. He is now one of the "noisy" and cheeky little boys. My boy has fun days there and I have the utmost respect for all the lovely staff at Woodlands, making his days so interesting with plenty of activities and so much fun. can't recommend Woodlands highly enough.

Our daughter loves Woodlands Nursery every day. She comes back so happy. She especially loves her new room, the ladybirds, as they have so many activities to keep the children entertained. The staff are great and they clearly give the children lots of attention and affection. The feedback provided at the end of the day is always very thorough and useful.

I wasn't sure what to expect from a nursery, being a mum for the first time this was a whole new experience for me and I wasn't sure what to expect. There was no need for me to worry - Woodlands have been fantastic and I wouldn't put my little boy anywhere else! The staff are warm, caring, experienced and best of all my little one loves them all!
They have been so supportive and they always have time for you if you have any concerns or questions. My little boy barely let food pass his lips before he started nursery now he eats chicken curry!!! Amazing!!! He is also talking more and is so sociable - nursery has played a huge part in this. I would highly recommend this nursery to any parent as I know their child would thrive and be cared for in the best possible
