Reviews

9.8 Good Manors at Miller Drive has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.795)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Good Manors at Miller Drive is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Good Manors at Miller Drive in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.795 for Good Manors at Miller Drive is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.795

  • 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 Good Manors at Miller Drive is based on 13 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 12 Target Reached = 1

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

This nursery is great. My children have been there as nursery intakes and are now Breakfast Club members. They were upset this week that I had chosen to take them to school instead of the brilliant walk to school service offered by Miller Drive. They get a good breakfast and cheekily ask for seconds most days. The best bit for me is I can drop them at the nursery, get to work on time and they get to school in plenty of time, safely and fed. It is a great service that many of my friends are jealous of as their nurseries are unable to offer this further service as the children reach school age.
Keep up the great work and thank you from a much appreciative Mum.

My little girl has been going to Good Manors for over a year and both myself and my husband are very pleased. She has progressed with everything, including speech and social interaction. She is always very happy to be going to nursery and we hardly ever have tears from her.

I cannot praise the staff and practices at Good Manors at Miller Drive, highly enough! The girls are always very friendly and helpful. My daughter has a wonderful bond with the majority of them. She loves her time at nursery, there are always activities planned and fun things to do. I am running out of space at home for all of her creations! The facilities are brilliant, from dressing up to the fish tank and the bouncy castle! There are some days I wish I could stay too!

On a serious note, when I have had cause to speak with anyone about an issue, it has been resolved quickly and constructively.

I also like the Tapestry platform as it gives me a more "real" insight into my daughter's day and they compliment the "parents evening" sessions well.

I came to the nursery on the recommendation of a couple of friends and would not hesitate to recommend them myself.

My daughter enjoys and learns so much at this nursery. She is always learning different things about the world around us and different cultures. She has been attending since she was 1 and will be there till she starts school this year. All of the staff are very friendly and extremely good at what they do, in looking after and nurturing the children.

I looked at Good Manors at Miller Drive when my first child was 9 months old. Having viewed 3 other nurseries in the area that made me upset, as I didn't want to leave my child with any of them, but I instantly had a good feeling about Good Manors. The staff were happy to show me around even though I'd just turned up unannounced. The first thing I noticed was the happiness of the children and I felt immediately comfortable with the surroundings. I went back 3 more times at different times of the day and each time felt the same warm welcome and saw how much the children enjoyed being there. My daughter settled in well and loved every minute, it prepared her well for when she started school. The celebrations throughout the year and the final graduation were all well planned and carried out, involving the children at all stages. When I had twin boys, there was no doubt they would attend the same nursery and they also love going. The warmth and happiness has been consistent throughout the last 5 years.

My daughter has been going to Good Manors for over a year now and she absolutely loves it. She has come along so far and has learnt so much. All the staff are fantastic with her and help her achieve the right needs and encourage her to improve in areas too.
When I take her to the nursery she gets excited when she realises and that is all down to the wonderful people who work there especially her key worker who she doesn't stop talking about. It's nice to know that when I leave to go to work she is in safe hands and that she is comfortable staying there without me.
Communication from management is also fantastic and if ever there are any questions I need to ask or even if I need some help with something they are always eager to help if they can which is brilliant. The manager is brilliant at her job and is also great with my little girl too.
I couldn't be happier with how far my daughter has come with her learning and understanding of things.

My daughter was 9 months old when she joined Good Manors at Miller Drive. She was very nervous and took a little while to settle. The staff have been so kind to her and she absolutely loves it now. She has a special bond with her key worker and enjoys all the fun times and activities she does there. I recommend Good Manors to everyone I know. They have a variety of things that the little ones enjoy. The staff are kind and welcoming. I am so glad I put my daughter into Good Manors as she has come on leaps and bounds with her confidence since she started. She warms to people quicker now and is not as nervous when meeting new people. She used to cry when any one would pick her up and now she practicalls jumps to her key worker. Which makes me feel good that she obviously feels safe and happy there when I leave her there to go to work.

Both my children have been to Good Manors since 2012 and I can't recommend Good Manors highly enough.
My daughter is nearly 7 and her confidence started growing at Good Manors due to the nurturing staff who brought out her personality. My son is 3 and has been attending since 7 months old, he loves going to Preschool! He has loads of friends and I know it's a place of fun and love for him. The staff at Good Manors always help me if I need extra sessions. They are amazing!

My daughter attends Good Manors, Miller Drive for 2 x school days per week. She feels very happy to attend nursery and I am very happy to leave her in the nurseries care. The staff are friendly and approachable and provide lots of fun activities for the children. Each day I pick my daughter up I am given a summary of what she has been doing through out the day and informed of what she has eaten. The staff also keep me up to date with my daughter's learning via a tapestry app. I can see the fun and learning that takes place at the nursery and am able to add comments and home learning observations myself too. I have no complaints about the nursery in fact only praise for the team for the care and learning that they provide for my daughter.

My son was looked after at this nursery from age 2 and is still attending their after school club (aged 6). The staff are extremely friendly, welcoming and are happy to answer any questions you may have. My son loves being here, he has always been happy and never had any problems. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone that wanted a safe, happy, enjoyable experience for their child.

A really good nursery that provides a better service than other, more expensive nurseries in the area.
The staff are great with our son and good at communicating with us about his development.
They have always been able to accommodate our needs, often at short notice, which is a big help.
Well Done!

My little boy joined this nursery just before Christmas 2016 and he is now 14 months old (March 2017). My little man has always been a bit nursery shy, he still cries when I drop him off now, but he thoroughly enjoys his time when he gets settled. I think I would have given up with nursery a long time ago if it wasn't for the lovely ladies at Good Manors at Miller Drive. Their patience and perseverance building up my little boy's confidence is working wonders and I'm feeling a lot better too. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others, others in the area just don't come close, and I've examined most of them!!! Keep up the good work.

Both of my youngest children have attended Good Manors. It is a wonderful nursery and has taken good care of my children and given me a great deal of support and understanding over the years (my child's key worker was instrumental in getting them out of nappies and on to the toilet).

Its staff are friendly, kind and above all knowledgeable. The management of the nursery is faultless and has always been flexible in accommodating my many requests. The environment is stimulating and full of excellent learning opportunities (there are always lots of new toys being introduced into the areas). The days are very well planned and structured and staff obviously know the children in their care very well.

I really do feel that Good Manors offers excellent value for money and I would not hesitate in recommending it to other parents.
