Reviews

9.9 Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.891)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 62 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 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 4.891 for Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (665 Excellents x 5) + (75 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 743 Ratings = 4.891

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool is based on 27 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 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 21 Target Reached = 1

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

Excellent nursery, my son is loving preschool, he has been here since 11 months old and is now in upper preschool and is doing so well. His confidence has come on leaps and bounds. All of the staff have been great with helping him, with giving up his dummy, potty training and dealing with his eczema, would highly recommend.

Culham Nursery has been fantastic for the care and development of my daughter. She started at 11 months and is now 17 months and has come on in leaps and bounds. The staff are extremely friendly and caring and I am glad I have somewhere so reliable and caring I can leave her while I am at work.

My son has loved coming to the nursery. Each time he has moved rooms, has always been when he is ready and happy. The staff always make time to speak with us at the beginning and end of the day so we always know how his day has been. The meals provided are cooked each day and a good variety is offered. I have always been confident that my son is well looked after, safe and happy.

My daughter has attended both the nursery and pre-school for two years now, starting at 18months old. I can’t recommend this facility enough. The setting is modern and clean and boasts a wonderful garden with lots of outdoor play and learning. The staff have been excellent in building a rapport with my daughter and I have every confidence in leaving her in their care each day. My daughter has thrived in the environment and seems to relish the increased structure of learning that pre-school provides. I have every confidence Culham Science Centre Nursery & Pre-school is absolutely the right place to nurture a love of learning and prepare my daughter so well for school and her next adventure!

Both my children attended Culham and we couldn't have been happier. It really is outstanding from the excellent facilities, toys, food, learning to the most wonderful staff that go above and beyond to give your children the best care and start in early years learning. We will certainly miss all the staff and children at the nursery. It has been the best decision bringing them to Culham and the hardest having to leave early. I cannot thank you all enough.

My son joined the nursery at 6 months old. He has loved every single day he has spent there over the last two years. The nursery staff have helped nurture his personality, his social skills and they have helped create a very happy, intelligent and able little boy.
He is leaving the nursery at 2 years and 4 months old ( we are relocating) he is able to eat properly with a knife and fork, able to talk and fully potty trained.
Thank you, Culham staff for allowing us to go back to work knowing our precious boy was having the time of his life! We will miss you.

Our whole family has been ever so impressed with the nursery experience. Our son has come along leaps and bounds. Nursery has made him incredibly sociable and learnt extra skills ie. eating new foods, napping for 3 hours. I have also learnt from his nursery nurses, from the little things like knowing when he's teething, tired to learning how to help our son use spoon and craft materials. He loves his nursery mummies so much and is always happy to get to nursery.

Both my kids (1yr & 3yrs) settled quickly at Culham and have brilliant caring key workers that they love. They're always tired at the end of the day, but generally happy and have always eaten excellent healthy food and had fun. Culham has been a life changer particularly for my 3yr old, who was a very fussy eater but now eats so much better and particularly with all his friends ay Culham. The huge garden is brilliant and I live that the staff take them out in all weather. The manager is particularly approachable and friendly which makes a huge difference. I would definitely recommend Culham to friends.

My son has been at the nursery for 18 months and loves his time there. There is so much for the children to do and learn with a special theme each week in each room. The outdoor space is fantastic and my son loves the food. The staff make a real effort to get to know each child and have been so supportive with earlier food intolerances and now potty training. My son has formed special relationships with both staff and other children and it's wonderful to see him so comfortable and happy.

Very friendly and happy nursery. Welcoming but at the same time keeps the children reminded of the need to follow rules thereby developing the children for the world at large. Lots of fun learning together with outdoor play. Meal times help to discipline whilst explaining new tastes. Manners are learnt in a happy fun environment. Delighted we chose the nursery.

We couldn't be happier with the care our son has received since being at the nursery. I always go to work assured that he is well looked after. He is always very happy and excited when I arrive to get him. Showing off and sometimes doesn't want to leave. He developed an amazing bond with the staff in the baby room, especially with his keyworker who we feel beyond lucky to have looking after our son. His development is coming on brilliantly in all areas which I believe is largely down to the time and commitment invested in him by the staff. An exceptional nursery with exceptional staff.

Our almost 3-year-old has been at nursery since he was approx 9 months old. He's always been really well looked after and has thrived with all the opportunities he has been given. Our older son left last year to go to school after 4 years and was so well prepared for school - academically and emotionally.

Very happy with nursery. Staff are friendly welcoming and give a lot of detail each day as to what they have been up to. Would highly recommend to others, my son has come on so much since joining. Sometimes he comes home in the wrong clothes when there were clean clothes in his bag, but a very minor issue.

Since my son as attended Wombles room along with the room staff his speech has come on incredibly. The team are continuously looking at my sons development and we work together to encourage him. Everyday I feel happy that my son is cared for in the way I would like. The team go out of there way to help us both, currently allowing my son to be chief fish feeder to prevent tears and strops early in the morning. They are brilliant.

My daughter has been with the Wombles room for 9 months all the girls have really helped my daughter to settle. My daughter is a very shy little girl who needs lots of support in busy environments. In particular my daughters key worker has spent lots of one to one times with her helping her to feel comfortable. The girls always make time to chat at the end of the day for handover explaining all the activities, meals and naps that my daughter has had during the day. Keyperson especially always makes time to discuss my daughters development more generally. I feel like we are all helping my little girl grow together. What a fantastic nursery.

Our son really enjoys his time here and we have been more than happy with the care he receives from the staff. The staff have also been very helpful, providing us with information and assistance with things like weaning, potty training, dealing with toddler tantrums etc. I have not once regretted my decision to send him here and we have also signed up our second son. The daily feedback received is excellent and help us to understand how our son spends his day and lessens the feelings that we are missing out on time with him.

My son has been at the nursery for nearly a year and a half. More recently he is now full time. It's a very difficult decision to make; to choose the right day care place for your child as you have to have complete trust and faith in the people at the nursery to care for your loved one. This nursery is in the opposite direction of my travel to work; however, the additional daily travel is very much worth it. My son is very happily settled at the nursery. He loves all the staff that care for him and eagerly runs into the class every day to the open arms of the waiting staff. The staff are friendly, approachable and caring. Recently rated outstanding and this was very well deserved! My son's development has been excellent and that is in part, thanks to the nursery.

My daughter started lower pre-school, January 2016. Since this time she has developed further in her speech, co-ordination, displaying strong, confident characteristics including caring for others and tidying when told. She has developed a true understanding of play and often relays stories about her friends and staff at the nursery. She thrives and looks forward to going to nursery which is helped greatly by her caseworker, and all the staff. Thank you for all your help.

We are very pleased with the care and attention both our children receive at Culham. Both have moved to the nursery in the last year when we relocated and have been looked after very well. My daughter has been very well supported both in terms of her physical and emotional development and my son has been challenged and engaged in preparation for his starting school in September. We feel confident when we drop our children off in the morning that they will enjoy a stimulating day. On the rare occasion we have been concerned, any issues have been dealt with. Thank you.

We love the nursery, the bonds our children have developed with the staff are very strong, which is great to see. They are never short of cuddles! Their development has come on in leaps and bounds since they started 6 months ago. We love Culham Nursery, and would recommend it to anyone.

Being at the nursery has really helped my son begin to develop his speech and became more confident. He loves the girls in his room and even asks for them at the weekends! He has built some excellent bonds and really looks forward to coming in. The girls in the room do their very best for the children especially coming up with fun activities or features in the room to encourage learning. The key person system works really well, his key person really goes the extra mile for him.

My child has been at Culham Science Centre Nursery for over three years now and it just seems to get better and better. The obvious plus point is the pre-school's outstanding OFSTED report, the daily pre-school life really does live up to this grade. Almost everyday my son returns home eager to tell me about what he's learnt that day- all with a smile on his face. The culture at Culham Science Centre Nursery is so diverse and I've often been astounded by my son greeting me in a different language. The team there are second to none and I have always felt confident in their abilities to care for my son from baby to young boy. I would highly recommended the pre-school and couldn't have wished for a better environment for my son to spend his early years.

Since joining Culham Science Centre Nursery my son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going to nursery to spend time with the friends he has made there. The nursery especially the pre school itself is a fun and bright environment and I think it provides the backdrop for effective learning and social development of the kids.

Ideal location close to work with this bonus of an outstanding OFSTED report, two in a row. My child really has enjoyed all classes from baby room to big boy room with a seamless transition. I have to drag him away. Well managed, well organised, motivated, happy staff. Good feedback provided about the days activities every day. It was as a result of staff monitoring progress including incidents that led to prompt and early intervention to resolve a squint test very quickly, something not usually noticed until school eye tests. Thank you.

My daughter loves going to nursery every morning. The adaption period was really short and she gets along with everyone. We can really tell the difference since she joined she has developed much quicker. The food and care are great and the communication with the staff good. I am quite happy and hope she can carry on for a long time.

My daughter has thrived at the nursery- the staff being dedicated and highly professional and interested in each individual child as a separate personality with differing developmental needs, The nursery environment is fun and calm and good manners are encouraged. You feel the staff are really connected to your child and have a personal interest in the child's welfare, it is a very safe and nurturing environment with plenty of learning and stimulation for developing minds. The staff are excellent, carrying out their duty of care to the highest standard. This is by far the best nursery I have encountered.
