The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Pipkins Nursery School Chevening is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 1 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)
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 4.833 for Pipkins Nursery School Chevening is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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:
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.
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.
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 1.709 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pipkins Nursery School Chevening is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.4 Target = 0.417 , then divided by 2 = 0.209

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Stacey L (Mother of Child) on Wednesday 13 July 2016. Relates to July 2016.
This is an absolutely delightful nursery in a beautiful country setting with an extra lovely garden/outdoor space for the children.
My daughter has been attending for the past year and has enjoyed her time immensely. She has forged strong friendships and loves her nursery teachers. It really feels like a little family here.
The teachers genuinely adore the children and really make the effort to nurture them and bring out their best qualities. They provide lots of fun and exciting things to do - both indoors and out, for example sweet little walks around the church and woodland, messy play, singing and dancing as well as the more structured/formal introduction to phonics etc.
My daughter begins school in September and I wish she had another year at this nursery as she has been genuinely happy here and it has been lovely to see her flourish from her experience with Pipkins.
I highly recommend this nursery for anyone thinking of going.
