Reviews

9.1 Fledglings Nursery & Preschool has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.075)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fledglings Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 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 4.519 for Fledglings Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.519

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fledglings Nursery & Preschool is based on 8 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.556

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

Whilst our child found it hard moving to a new nursery following our house move, Fledglings did everything they could to settle him in. It took a few weeks but ultimately our son is as keen to go as he was at his previous nursery.
The facilities and cleanliness of the nursery are very good and staff are professional and courteous. I feel comfortable knowing that we are leaving our precious son is capable hands and a safe environment.

So happy with everyone at Fledglings Nursery. My daughter took a long time to settle and everyone was so patient and so understanding. I always felt like they really cared and that they took special interest in helping. Now my daughter is so happy there and she asks to go even when it is her day off! She is so happy there and has so much fun.

Our two boys started at Fledglings as babies and have really thrived there. Our oldest in particular is always excited to start his day there. With lots of activities and playtime to keep them occupied, we get a big pile of artwork to take home each month, so they are very creative. There is always ample opportunity to play outside and it's lovely in the summer when you tend to pick them up directly from the outside play area, the children are always having such fun and we get a glimpse of their playtime before they see us.
The food is good and varied, and the boys seem to be less fussy at nursery than they are at home.
I always enjoy reading through the record of their learning and activities, it is such a nice reminder of how they have progressed over the months.

The staff at Fledglings are kind and caring and put the child's needs first. Both of my children have excelled at this nursery and are extremely fond of the staff. The facilities are very good, as are the grounds.

I’ve had two boys here from babies. It's a lovely nursery, with a nurturing and caring environment. The outdoor space is amazing, including an outdoor classroom, simply ideal for our lively boys. They play outside several times a day and go for walks and picnics in the surrounding parkland in good weather. Indoor areas are spacious and airy, and children do a wide range of activities, including a weekly Hartbeeps class.
There are regular improvements, most recently new flooring inside and new grass in the garden. All-inclusive fees – nappies, wipes, meals and activities, really take away the hassle for busy parents. Food is varied and high quality, including organic meat, and this helped our boys be adventurous eaters. The staff are lovely and foster a calm but busy atmosphere. Parents evenings keep us updated and key workers lovingly prepare development books which have provided us with a lasting record of precious moments. Management runs a tight ship but have always accommodated reasonable requests.

My son changed nursery at the beginning of the year 2016 and it was the best decision I could have made. The staff are fantastic and really care for the children. Every day is packed full of activities and it's clear every one works so hard to ensure each day is educational but for them and more importantly lots of fun. He comes home so excited from his day and knowing he will have a good day makes having to leave him a lot easier.
He adores all the staff and will talk about them at home and what he's been doing so that really shows how happy he is.
You get a really clear detailed description of the day and communication is easy and friendly with the staff.
If you are looking at finding a placement I couldn't recommend more and encourage you to view and you will not be disappointed.

My son has been at Fledglings for 2.5 years. He has learnt so much during his time and always comes home singing a new song or telling us about something he's been taught. He has always been very happy and secure there and runs in without looking back. It's a well organised, friendly and happy environment.
