Reviews

9.8 Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.822)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 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 4.844 for Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.844

  • 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 4.978 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.978

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

My daughter attends Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge and cannot wait to go to nursery each day. I have no complaints at all about this nursery (and we have experience of other nurseries). The staff and management are lovely and she feels comfortable with all of them. The food is varied and freshly cooked in the kitchen within the nursery. I would (and have) recommend this nursery.

Our son started at this Nursey in October 2015. We had moved from a different Nursey so I was a bit apprehensive about moving him from his friends and familiar surroundings. He settled in so quickly thanks to the lovely staff and loves every minute, he can't wait to go to nursery! As well as all of the activities done in the Nursey they are taken to the park, shops, library etc. The food is all provided and is a great, varied, 4-week menu. The level of teaching is excellent, he is always coming out with new things that we had no idea he knew about and we get to keep up with it through the 'Tapestry' online learning journey. We would highly recommend Good Manors at Stubbington Lodge.

My son started at this nursery in September 2016 at only 8 months old. After viewing 10 nurserys when I walked in Good Manors it just felt right, I knew straight away my Son would be cared for here as I'd expect. The staff are excellent and my son has built great relationships with them. He does a variety of activitys and I'm kept updated daily and through the online tapestry. I am always recommending the nursery to friends/colleagues etc. The nursery has really helped with my transition back to work as I know my son loves going to nursery!

As a mother of 8 and my youngest being the last at Nursery I couldn't be happier with the choice we made, all the staff are extremely professional and I couldn't be happier, every day my daughter looks forward to nursery, she's always doing something fun and is becoming a very confident, happy and as the name of the nursery suggests very good mannered little girl. The food is what makes the nursery, even more, value for money and is what you would expect to receive from a posh restaurant. I 100% recommend this nursery and even though I have family members who work in different nurseries and have asked my daughter to join theirs I would not consider moving, I even have parents who would look after for free but the care would not be the same with all the activities food and mixing with others. Thank you, Good Manners Stubbington Lodge Portsmouth.

Such a lovely and well-kept nursery. Welcoming staff who are always on hand to help with any need. So lively and upbeat. All staff are caring and very presentable. Always a welcoming and friendly face :). My son enjoys every day and loves the colourful and interactive surroundings.

My daughter has been at Good Manors for five months in the baby room. The staff have been excellent at helping her adjust and settle into her new routine. She absolutely loves going there and she has formed beautiful bonds with the staff. I really feel she gets the love and attention she needs as well as her educational needs being met. As a parent, it is a big deal trusting people with your child. I was lucky to find somewhere that I instantly felt comfortable with and they have gone above and beyond to make us feel well looked after. The food choices are always varied and the nursery is always clean and welcoming with various displays. The communication and knowledge of the staff are excellent and I always get the impression that they are as happy as I am when she meets new goals and says new words. One of the main benefits is the school hours which was a winner for me with her having an older sibling. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Our boy started with Good Manors in October 2016 when he was 10 months old and has enjoyed every single day. All staff have shown incredible care and developed a wonderful relationship with our child. When we pick him up at the end of the day, they always have time to chat and update us on what activities he has enjoyed doing and any developments he has made.

We feel incredibly lucky to have our child in a such a caring, encouraging and nurturing environment. Knowing how happy he is has made the transition back to work after maternity leave so much easier. I would (and have) highly recommend the nursery to anyone looking for childcare.

My Son has attended Good Manors, Stubbington Lodge since September /October 2016 and he has learnt a wide array of new skills especially his knowledge of his day to day surroundings which may be the day of the week or month and also his memory of different songs has been amazing. In December a Christmas show was also put on and to see my Son up there with the other kids singing back to me was one of the proudest memories I have of him.

The environment is suitable to meet the childrens needs, space is limited however they have designed it to maximise it's capacity and children can explore their environment freely with the help of staff. Staff are always alert, appear caring and share good working relationships to children. Educationally the plans are age appropriate and I have seen my child making significant improvement. The meals are well balanced and my child enjoys them.

Friendly, approachable staff create an atmosphere where my child feels comfortable to learn and take risks. My child is happy and developing skills all the time. I feel that I am kept informed of every moment I am away.
Stubbington Lodge was definitely the correct choice for my family. The transition process was made to be as easy as possible and we have never looked back since. My child has access to a range of resources to enable all areas of development and carries out tasks we wouldn't be able to undertake at home.

This is a fairly new nursery and they have expanded our expectations. My daughter started at 18 months old and I was/am very happy to leave her there. Communication is great and so is their "Tapestry" system.
