Reviews

6.5 Sherfield School Nursery has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.504)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Sherfield School Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sherfield School Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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)

  • 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 4.979 for Sherfield School Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 1.525 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sherfield School Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.050 , then divided by 2 = 0.025

  • 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 Sherfield School Nursery

My daughter has just started at Little Gems Nursery at Sherfield School, however, my son also spent 18 months in the nursery before going into Reception at Sherfield School. I cannot fault the nursery, the setting, facilities, staff & care are second to none, the nursery manager is always available & is very hands on. The children enjoy a wide range of activities and lots of time outside. There are designated areas for sleeping, reading, playing and eating. Daily reports are always available and the staff will call you straight away if they think your child may be unwell. There is a varied and balanced menu, seasonal activities and the children all seem very happy.

I have one son finished this nursery and another son halfway through. This nursery is of outstanding quality. The program they run to and the facilities are the best around for miles. You will not find this quality of space, opportunities or excellent staff around. They are really set up ready for the transition to school. There is nowhere better than Sherfield School Nursery, Little Gems.

We have moved house so needed to change nursery. But we have been so happy with the standard at Sherfield in comparison to the previous nursery, they provide a really well structured development play. The staff are experienced and nice people. Previously our son had not always liked going to nursery, now we find him keen to go and very happy when we pick him up. Highly recommended.

I couldn't recommend Sherfield highly enough, fantastic, consistent, reliable staff who are thorough and attentive at all times. My child joined at eight months old and has thrived in the surroundings. He adores the walks to the duck pond and in the beautiful grounds. He always greets the staff with a smile and cuddles along with the other children. On the few occasions he has been unwell, I have been called asap and their understanding of his normal behaviour and when something is amiss is second to none. I feel like we get a brilliant breakdown of the days events. The fine details are really important especially when they are so young. To ensuring a good, happy bedtime. Overall they are a great support to our son, but also myself as a first time parent.
