Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Good Manors at Manor Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 13 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.707 for Good Manors at Manor Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (121 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.707

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Good Manors at Manor Lodge is based on 13 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

This is a wonderful nursery, I have two children attending one with extremely delayed speech and the staff have been utterly amazing with him, I just can't thank them enough! My daughter adores going to 'school' and has come on so much, they have really brought her out her shell and were so patient with her separation anxiety, can't believe how well she is now counting and writing her name, she surprises us constantly with how much she has learnt. The outside play area is wonderful and the meals prepared by the kitchen put most restaurants to shame, both my children love the meals there.
This nursery is outstanding I can't believe you could find better.

My daughter has been at Good Manors since ten months and is now in the Tweenies. Since going to Tweenies they have cracked her naps and she is really chatty and happy when we collect her. Thank you Tweeny staff.

My daughter has attended here for 6months in the baby unit and her development in this time is fantastic. The caring staff made a tough transition for us both much easier, she thoroughly enjoys it and I am very impressed with the attention placed on each child's development and enjoyment. Thank you Good Manors!

My daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 9 months old and she absolutely loves it! She made a very smooth transition from the baby unit to Tweenies. The staff have been very attentive towards her and always keep me well informed of her progress, whether in person or via Tapestry. My daughter is always excited to go to nursery in the mornings and has lots to tell me at the end of the day!

Good Manors at Manor Lodge is a really well-run nursery. The staff in Tweenies, where my son is currently being cared for are amazing. They are really friendly and they care so much for the children. What I love about the nursery is the big garden with plenty of things to do. This gives the nursery the opportunity to allow the children plenty of time to play outside, which my son loves.

They have always been fantastic with my son. He loves it and does so many activities. They take him out to the park, to feed the ducks and for picnics. He really enjoys his time there and feels really comfortable with all the staff.

My daughter has attended Good Manors at Manor Lodge since September. As much as I am extremely happy with the way the nursery is run - with dedicated, happy and passionate staff, a high level of security to access the property, and their high standards for communication and planning - nothing compares with the happiness that Charlotte obviously feels about going to nursery and spending time with the staff and her peers. Daily reassurance that I made the right choice in day care for my little girl.

Staff are all really friendly and amiable. My son absolutely loves the girls in the preschool and they have really taken the time to get to know him. Our favourite part of the nursery is the garden, which is what made us choose them in the first place. My son will be one of the younger school starters this September and I feel that the preschool is doing an excellent job of getting him prepared by encouraging him to learn and be open minded. In the past when I have had minor concerns, I brought them to the preschool's attention and the issue was resolved promptly and effectively. Very pleased with Manor Lodge. Thumbs up all round!

Having used this nursery for both of my children I have always been very pleased with the level of care they have received. My youngest is now in pre-school and has attended since she was 13 months old, she is always happy to go to nursery in the morning and keen to tell stories of her day. The activities completed during the day are varied in nature and there is a good mix of inside and outside play. Updates on my child's progress from the key worker is also good.

My Son started at Good Manors when he was 10 months old. I had never left him in the care of anybody outside my family until then.

I feel he has always been looked after well and the staff have always kept me informed of all the activities and information relating to him. The updates on Tapestry have been great. He transitioned really well from Babies to Tweenies with great care from his key worker.

I feel confident and happy with all the staff and care at Good Manors and always recommend them to family and friends.

Well done, ladies and thank you.

Both my children have attended this nursery from 1yr to school age. I have never had cause to complain about anything really and my children have always been really happy there. They can sometimes be a little disorganised with personal belongings but this is not a major issue and staff turnover has been high of late. However the staff deal with this really well and it has never affected my children.

My Daughter has been attending Good Manors for nearly a year since she was 1 year old. The difference between when she started and now is day and night she is so much more confident, happy and inquisitive. The staff are fantastic and always accommodating, welcoming and I couldn't praise them enough. We have many more nurseries that are closer and cheaper but I wont even consider them. Second to none.

I think that Good Manors, Manor Lodge, well deserves the "outstanding" grade it achieved on its last Ofsted inspection. My son has been attending since the age of 21 months and is now 40 months. He settled very quickly and has transitioned from their "tweenies" room into pre-school. He simply loves nursery days and is always excited at bedtime when he knows he can go to nursery the next day. All the staff I have met have been friendly and knowledgeable. They all seem to really enjoy working there, and I feel there is a low staff turnover, which I think speaks for them as an employer too. My son's current key worker is fabulous and makes him feel really special. He surprises me with all the words and activities he has learnt at nursery. Lovely range of activities are provided. They have started using the online tapestry system which really helps me feel part of his learning. My younger son is due to start in the next few months, and I know I am leaving him in competent hands.
