Reviews

7.9 Wonderland Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.860)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Wonderland Day Nursery 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wonderland Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 4.813 for Wonderland Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 3.047 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wonderland Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 21.4 positive Reviews (107 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 21.4 Target = 0.047

  • 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 Wonderland Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    4

Our little girl has been going to Wonderland 4 days a week since she was just over 10 months old. The baby unit was perfect for her needs and we were so impressed with all the staff and facilities. She built a close relationship with her key carer and she was really helpful if we had any questions or concerns.

She's now moved up to 1-2s and the girls helped her make the transition seamlessly. She's really happy and getting up to all sorts of fun activities. We really feel our little girl is looked after and supported to the highest level and we would recommend Wonderland to anyone.

My partner and I are extremely happy with Wonderland nursery. Our child has had wonderful key workers, with whom he has a real bond. They are given lots of time in the outside play area, which is important to us as I think spending time outdoors is so good for children. They provide a variety of activities such messy play, a music group and plenty of role play activities. They provide a learning journal to document what the individual child has been doing, with photographs. As well as showing progress of the child, it gives a real insight into what they have been doing on a day to day basis, and it is lovely to have such a comprehensive record of these early years.
The staff are always friendly and helpful, and as another reviewer mentioned, the door security is great.
The management team sends out weekly news emails with details about what the various age groups have been doing, and will be doing the following week.
I would highly recommend Wonderland nursery,

Since my daughter joined Wonderland Day Nursery in 2014 we have generally been pleased with the nursery. She had lots of allergies and they've always been great at finding ways to ensure she gets a free from version of what everyone else has. She has also loved each of her key workers as she has transitioned through each age group. Their garden is great and the quality and cleanliness of toys much better than other nurseries we looked at. We also get full reports each day and proper chats with her key workers so we know how she's been. The nursery has been really good for our daughters development; she is very advanced with her talking and playing and she eats really well at nursery which makes a change from home!

Both my husband and I are very happy with the level of care my child receives at the nursery. She has moved through all the groups at the nursery from baby to 3-5's and all have met her needs. The staff are caring and kind. My daughter feels valued and cared for. She oftens talks about her keyworker at home and always in a positive light. The children undertake a wide variety of activities from food tasting and cooking to drama and music, letter sounds, role play and small world play. As a teacher, I feel that they really do work on developing the WHOLE child. Children are encouraged to share their interests with the staff and interest is always shown.

The children's journals are sent home and the work towards the child development goals are shared on a regular basis. I have always found the staff helpful if there is a concern. The children's care plans are regularly reviewed and updated with parents. We chose this nursery because it is clean. The staff were helpful and knowledgable. The environment was a positive one and the children were happy and being actively engaged with by the adults around them. I also liked that in the baby group, they worked around MY CHILD'S sleep patterns and feeding times and they didn't try to get them to fit with their time lines etc.

The security at the door is also a strength.
