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 4.861 for Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield is calculated as follows: ( (155 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.861

  • 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 4.733 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield is based on 11 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). 11 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.733

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

Reviewer Connection to Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield

  • Mother of Child
    15

Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield has been a fabulous nursery for both my son and now daughter. They have both thrived in the fun-packed, educational environment that the staff create for the children. The staff create such a warm, safe place for the children to explore their characters, their skills, language and so much more. I love getting the updates both first hand at pickup or via the observations on the Parent Mail/portal. Both my children have loved being here and it has helped to bolster their confidence and helping to prepare them for school. Thank you.

Thank you for the fantastic review.

All the staff that work at the nursery are not only caring towards the children in their care but also to the families of those children too. The whole nursery has such a family atmosphere and my little girl absolutely adores going there every day. She has been to other nurseries before we found Hopscotch and she wasn't half as happy. It is all down to the staff. Thank you Hopscotch!!!

Thank you for such a lovely review. The staff team are fabulous.

I could tell straight from the visit to Hopscotch that the staff would be amazing. This was a real tipping point for choosing the nursery. My son did struggle initially to settle at nursery but the whole team did absolutely everything to help him adjust to being there; this included extra settling in sessions at no extra cost which helped him enormously. Over his time at the nursery, he has developed so many amazing skills and this is thanks to the amazing structure of the nursery day, the skilled nursery staff and the superb range of equipment in the Under 2s room. I love hearing about his day and the staff use Tapestry brilliantly to update me with pictures and videos! Makes it that little bit easier to leave him knowing he is having a wonderful time.

Thank you for the lovely review.

We have always found Hopscotch to be amazing with our little girl and had no hesitation in signing our second child to this nursery too.

We receive regular communication from the manager and have had extra assistance from the nursery staff with regards to the transition of welcoming second baby, encouraging feeding and good behaviour at home.

I would certainly recommend the nursery to new parents.

Your kind words mean a lot to us. Thank you.

My child moved to preschool last November, he is very settled now with the love and care of the staff. They are using key times with the children highly effectively, encouraging them and giving the children experiences to engage and motivate their learning.

Thank you for the lovely review.

Nothing makes me happier than knowing my little girl is in such good hands when I go to work. She absolutely loves Hopscotch, and can’t wait to go. The staff all seem to love their jobs and they are well managed by the managers. There’s always a friendly face and warm welcome when we arrive and leave, and my daughter eats better at nursery than she does at home! I always recommend Hopscotch to anyone looking for childcare.

Thank you for the lovely review.

Lovely nursery, our daughter attends once a week and she looks forward to going every time. All the staff are helpful and very friendly. Nothing is a problem, they make sure our routine at home is continued at the nursery. Updates every week on tapestry is also great, being able to see pictures of our child playing and learning new things and seeing she is so happy. All meals are included which is helpful when we have had been at work all day, taking the pressure off making packed lunches. We would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a nursery. We have recommended to family who now have put their child into Hopscotch.

Thank you for the lovely review.

I am so pleased that I chose to send my son to this nursery, he has been in the under 2's room for 8 months now since starting when he turned 1 year old and he has settled in so well and loves his days at nursery. The staff keep parents well informed of what children have been doing each day and the range of activities and meals provided is fantastic. Children have lots of time outside, which was something that was important to me for my son. One of my biggest concerns when he first started was napping, but staff worked with me to find the best solution for him and he now naps brilliantly when he is at nursery. The car park can be a bit busy at pickup/dropoff times as it is small, but this seems to be a common issue for nurseries and is a minor issue when everything else is so good.

Thank you so much for the amazing review. The car park can be very busy at certain times of the day and we encourage parents to utilise the space we have.

I would highly recommend this nursery to other parents. Both my children have absolutely loved their time with Hopscotch and I have always had peace of mind knowing they are getting so well cared for. The staff are all lovely and do a fantastic job.

Hi Libby. Thank you so much for the lovely review.

Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield is an amazing nursery. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. They keep the parents really well informed on everything to with the children, staff and nursery changes. They all seem to know their stuff and are very committed to making the environment a fun and happy one with every opportunity to learn and develop. My little boy has settled in really well and you can see how much the staff care for each and every child in their care. As a 1st-time mum, everything and anything can be worrying but they have all been very supportive and helpful and made both his and my transition into nursery a very easy one. All in all, I couldn't be happier with our decision on the nursery and would happily recommend them to everyone!

Thank you for your lovely feedback.

My 13 month old daughter started at Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield only a few weeks ago but since being here she has developed so many skills. The staff in the baby room are all so friendly as are the management staff and I feel confident my daughter is being well cared for by them. She thoroughly enjoys it here.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments .

Hopscotch Day Nursery Titchfield have been great with my daughter. They have looked after her from the age of one and she has flourished in their care. They have helped her become an imaginative, thoughtful and outgoing individual who cannot wait to see her friends and ladies in the mornings. I receive daily rundowns of what she has been up to, eaten and played with. At the end of the day, I feel confident that she has had an enjoyable day and has been well looked after.
