Reviews

9.4 Boys & Girls Nursery Watford has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.369)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Boys & Girls Nursery Watford is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Boys & Girls Nursery Watford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 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 4.643 for Boys & Girls Nursery Watford is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.643

  • 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 4.726 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Boys & Girls Nursery Watford 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.726

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

I'd highly recommend the nursery. My daughter had been there for two and half years and I cannot thank the staff enough for everything they have done in terms of my daughter's development. She enjoyed every day at the nursery and felt loved and safe.

It's in a good location as it has bus and train links close by and easy access for cars.
They do lots of extra activities and lots of baking for the kids to take home.
Well done Boys & Girls Nursery!

My son has been at Boys & Girls Nursery Watford for over two years, starting in the toddler's room and quickly moved to Pre-school room.
The care for the children, facilities and activities are first rate. My son loves going to nursery and I attributed a lot of his development and learning to the lovely staff team. Kind and loving teachers who genuinely care about children's social and educational development.
I also want to mention about all the yummy and impressive menu - all prepared in house.
I feel extremely fortunate to have my son attend Boys & Girls Nursery and I am sure he will always look back at his nursery days with very fond memories.
I would highly recommend to anyone looking for high quality childcare.

My daughter changed nurseries earlier this year to Boys and Girls and I just wanted to say what a change I have seen in the older Grandson. He is now really talkative he loves going to nursery now and always tells me what he has done. He has become more confident and open as a little boy.

He loves the baking days and also the fact you do the PE and playing outside.

Please pass onto the staff in the baby group and the upstairs room much appreciation from a grandad.

My son has the best experiences here at Boys & Girls Nursery. The staff members have patience, understanding and absolute care for him. They nurture his development with different resources and activities and promote all aspects of his learning. The company are flexible and offer extra sessions, early and late starts when available and the office staff are friendly and welcoming. The garden space is bright and inviting and offers physical activities within a safe, secure environment. The baby room and the other areas of the nursery are homely and welcoming. Great nursery.

Wonderful nursery. Staff and management are caring, friendly, welcoming and accommodating. My son was born with a cleft lip and pallet and has had issues around feeding/speech etc and staff have ensured our requests have been taken into account and have been very supportive with his development. Our son thoroughly enjoys it and we intend to send our daughter there too. Clean, safe, diverse, supportive and fun environment - I cannot fault it!

I was originally nervous about enrolling my daughter into any nursery, but as soon as I walked into Boys & Girls, I was put at ease. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They are efficient and pro-active in their duties at all times. My daughter has settled in and now almost runs to her classroom, her day is filled with activities and lots of learning and the days are structured and made enjoyable. All the children's meals are cooked on site by a qualified chef and made from scratch, so I know my daughter is getting lovely fresh meals. Thank you.

In general, a fun and professional environment. Prompt response to any queries. They teach children well for independence and prepare them for school. They encourage exercise and outdoor activities. My child is happy here and has developed good social skills and confidence. Would recommend the nursery to anyone.

My daughter started going to Boys and Girls when she was 1 year and 8 months. As parents, what we see is the happy smiling face everyday in the evening when we come to pick her up. That summarises all the care and effort put in to ensure she has a good day.

Boys and Girls Nursery Watford have been a great nursery for my little girl. The transition from at home mummy to going back to work has been stress free with support and care Boys and Girls have provided for my daughter. My daughter bounds in every day excited to see staff and children and she is developing into a lovely little girl with little added developmental stages that she has picked up at nursery. Some days she just doesn't want to come home.

My daughter has started going to Boys and Girls Nursery two years ago. We are both Polish and when she started the nursery her English was very poor. Now I can tell it is much better than mine only within 2 years, so I'm very proud of her and grateful to amazing and friendly staff. They also know exactly how to play with children and teach at the same time.

I found this nursery very close to home and have really healthy food menu, then decided to book an appointment to visit. But I wasn't expecting that it is such perfect one for my daughter until I visited there. The Ofsted report shows they are 'Good' rating, but from what I have seen so far, they are way better than many nurseries and childminders that I had visited, even an 'Outstanding' rating. Their staff are so nice and helpful for us. Most important for us is our daughter enjoys to be in Boys & Girls and loves everyone there. So we strongly recommend this nursery to others.

My son enjoys being at Boys and Girls Nursery. He is well taken care of and they provide fun activities to keep him entertained and occupied. He especially loves Jo Jingles. I would recommend Boys and Girls as it it well run, the staff are very friendly and approachable and the food they provide at lunchtime is delicious.
