  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.8 out of 5 from 3 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)

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 4.896 for Bumpkins Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 1.818 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bumpkins Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 22 positive Reviews (110 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 22 Target = 0.136 , then divided by 2 = 0.068

  • 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 Bumpkins Day Nursery

Bumpkins Day Nursery are awesome!!! It was an emotional time when I first left my son at 10 month's old at nursery, but everyone at Bumpkins were so lovely and understanding. We had several settling in sessions so we were all comfortable by the time the full days started. My son thoroughly loves his days at Bumpkins! And I feel confident leaving him there. If I want to check on him I can text or call in, and most days I get updates on his development and activities through Eylog. They are a wonderful bunch of people, enthusiastic and genuinely care about what they do. I'd recommend them with a big thumbs up. Thank you Bumpkins!!

Bumpkins Day Nursery is an amazing service provider of early years care and education. My son loves every minute spent here and is developing amazingly. They are very supportive, incorporating specific focus areas that we have been doing at home and that makes me love this nursery. What other nurseries nearby don't offer is the outdoor space and constant use of interesting learning and play in all environments. Finally the quality of food, both from source and how it is cooked is first class.

Our daughter has been at Bumpkins for 18 months and has a lovely time there. She is leaving soon to start nursery at primary school. She is ready for the transition but we will miss Bumpkins. The staff are friendly and very kind. It is difficult to leave your baby when you return to work but I was sure she was being looked after well and entertained all day.

Our daughter is lively, talkative and confident. She has learnt a lot at Bumpkins. Even when I collect late in the day, she is happy / busy playing. Often dressed as a princess or happy with a puzzle.

I will continue to recommend Bumpkins. It is a bit expensive but I really believe you get what you pay for!

Bumpkins is an amazing nursery. We are so pleased our daughter has had her last two years here. We put her in at just over a year and she has really thrived. What makes Bumpkins stand out is the staff. They are so committed and are clearly a strong team, reliable and skilled. Staff stay with Bumpkins for long periods which we felt was important for continuity. They have been dedicated to our daughter's development and also provide warm and nurturing relationships with the children so they feel secure and safe. It has lovely food, great outdoor space and location and creative activities each day. I would recommend it to anyone.
