Reviews

9.1 Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.068)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 33 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.589 for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) is calculated as follows: ( (253 Excellents x 5) + (117 Goods x 4) + (22 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 392 Ratings = 4.589

  • 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 4.479 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) is based on 9 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 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 18.8 Target = 0.479

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

Great nursery, the kids are happy here. Food is good with great staff. Glad to hear that the menu has changed, there was too much sugar/cake before.

Too many staff changes!

My daughter has loved her 3 years at Maples. She has really enjoyed her time and has made some lovely friends. The staff at butterflies have really helped prepare her for life at primary school. She will miss her key workers who have helped me cope with the change as well. They have been wonderful and are a credit to the nursery.

Staff are friendly and will always greet myself and my son in the morning.
They are very caring and when my son gets upset when he sees me in the garden, they give him cuddles and reassure him I will be back soon.
During hand over, they will say about what he ate and slept and sometimes, but not all the time, tell me what he has done in the day.

My daughter absolutely loves Maples Day Nursery and asks to go on days she is not enrolled. The specific attention to every child's needs is commendable. Finding a nursery which provides such a safe, happy and fun environment whilst focussing on development is as rare as yellow chocolate unicorns. I am exceptionally pleased with the use of outside agencies such as 'Rugby Tots' within the programme.

Excellent. Girls really lovely. Flexible long opening hours. Great food. Feel so happy with staff. Only concern is there is a lot of children and on a morning I don't know if the child ratio is enough.

Both my 2 children come to Maples, people are so nice and sweet with the children, I love the fact that the children are very stimulated by lots of activities tailored to their ages. Very appreciative that they are independent early and start to learn numbers and letters at 3.

They are very caring over the children (which I now they should be). They have lots of activities for them to do and try to get outside most days (since being in the toddler room) which I think that they all really enjoy.

Excellent setting which offers a wide variety of daily activities, exciting resources (check out the cool tee-pees and mud kitchen) and lovely staff. I am slightly biased, but I am a big fan of the hard-working, friendly and fun teams in the 'Caterpillar' department and Butterfly Pre-school.

It can be extremely daunting leaving your little nuggets in the care of others, however, be rest assured that the team will make sure that your little ones are well cared for, comforted and happy. The team are constantly chirpy and a wonderful ray of sunshine, especially on a cold, rainy morning (I would like to know their secret!).

My littlest egg has allergies, particularly a dairy allergy. The whole Maple's team has worked hard to ensure he has delicious and varied snacks and meals during the day. A massive thank you to the Maple's chef who went above and beyond to source alternative free-from products.

I highly recommend this Nursery and Pre-school!

Staff - There are a few outstanding members of staff who make up for a couple of their colleagues who aren't quite as good. However, it is a big nursery so staff need to be aware that they are meeting all children's needs whether they are full-time or part-time, and whatever age - especially when they move between rooms.
Process - All room moves have been handled badly and as a result, I've not felt confident that my child's needs are being adequately met initially. (This did get rectified over time.)
Management - Can't comment on management, but previous manager did inspire confidence.
Overall - Our child enjoys their time at nursery but there are a few areas that could be improved to make it good/excellent. Foster the excellent members of staff and give them opportunities to develop - They need to be kept and staff turnover is already too high.

We have had our three-year-old boy at Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) since he was 3 months old and we have been very happy with the nursery and would recommend it to all of our friends. We especially like the big garden and all the fun play and activities that happen each day. Only negative thing is the big rotation of staff, there has been a lot of new faces and short stays, changes of key persons etc. which is not good for the children and it would be good if Maples Day Nursery (Winchester) work on the effort of keeping their staff.

Our daughter started nursery when we moved here - age 4. She was anxious about her new start but the transition was very smooth. She has loved Butterflies. She goes happily every morning and particularly loves the staff. She has become very attached to several grown-ups!
She loves the food, and eats well. The extra activities eg. visit to the pet shop and to the library have been excellent.

We have two little girls at the nursery - 20 months and 3 years 10 months. They are both very happy coming to nursery 2 days per week. There are lots of activities, outside play and developmental play. The food is excellent and they are encouraged to be self-reliant. There are lots of cuddles and attention when needed and we are very happy with the care they both get.

Maple Day Nursery has been a great support in helping me go back to work. Seeing our baby smile on drop off and pick up when he sees the staff has made the whole process a lot easier!
The friendliness and support of the staff in continuing the care for our baby in a safe environment where he can learn and socialise with others is fantastic.

I always feel confident dropping my daughter off knowing that she is going to have a good day. All the staff at Maples helped her settle in very well and I always have a happy little girl to pick up at the end of the day.

I like the food chat system and the way the staff help with the weaning process. I was especially grateful when Maples ordered in special bottles and teats for my daughter as she would only take one particular brand.

My experience with Maples is fantastic, staff are very friendly but professional at the same time. My son absolutely loves going to nursery. Personally, I love the garden areas. When I'm picking him up, there's always a professional handover. I always know what he is doing, eating and what kind of activities he's been involved in . I will recommend the nursery to friends and family.

My son has been attending since he was 18 months old. He has a food allergy and was a very nervous child. Understandably I was very concerned about him attending any nursery. The staff take his food issue extremely seriously and spent simply hours cuddling him when he first started to help him adjust. He's flourished in the environment, now eats a really good range of goods, loves the staff - as do we - and has so much fun in the new(ish) garden. They have added staff to the office recently and so the administration side is working great now too.

We are very pleased to have sent our boys to Maples Day Nursery. We have felt confident with the staff from the start. They settled in quickly and have now been there for 6 months and are excited to go. They appear to enjoy the food and the menu is nicely varied. The outside space is fantastic - particularly the fort. Special mention and thanks must go to the boys key workers. They have been crucial in settling the boys and keeping them happy. They are always enthusiastic and happy. The boys love seeing them and they are a credit for the nursery.

My son has been attending Maples since September. He has thrived in Butterflies and I have to say the care and education he has received to date is exceptional. He loves going to nursery and loves all the activities they do. He always has a story to tell us everyday when we pick him up. He has always been a very plain eater but since attending Maples he eats vegetables and tries food he would never eat at home for us. I can honestly say he has grown more confident as a person and the love and care he receives from the staff is exceptional.

I would like to thank all the wonderful staff at the Maple Nursery in Winchester, for everything they have done for my daughter. All the staff have been absolutely fantastic. My daughter is such a happy little person. She loves hanging out with her friends and all the staff are like family. I am so grateful for everything they have done and know full well that my daughter would not be the person she is today without their devoted, loving care and attention.

My son now is in pre-school at Maples. He loves it and so do we. He is happy, being well fed and well cared for by the whole team. The room leader for pre-school is excellent. I cannot praise her highly enough for her commitment, enthusiasm and results. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our son!

My daughter started at Maples when she was 11 months old, attended two different rooms so far and just about to move rooms again (she's just turning 2). She absolutely loves going to nursery and the rate of her development is just amazing since she started. She only does 2 days a week but it makes a huge difference. The staff are very friendly, they do all sort of activities, they consider individual needs (my daughter's second language is Hungarian and her key person prepared a Hungarian booklet for her to practice both languages I was well impressed). It is such a relief that she loves going there in fact sometimes she's upset that she have to leave her friends and come home. The food is really good, they get 3 meals and snacks as well which is great help because I have to drop her off early and cannot pick her up till 5.30 after work. I can only recommend Maples.

My two children (aged 4 and 22 months) have an absolutely fantastic time at Maples, cared for by staff whom they are enormously fond of. The outside space is excellent and new pre-school facilities in particular are brilliant. My only gripe is the sickness policy which doesn't seem to take into account teething-related symptoms, so we have had to collect teething children (demonstrating high temperature, for example) on a number of occasions when there was nothing else wrong with them. Would absolutely recommend Maples.
