Reviews

8.6 Curious Explorers Day Nursery and Pre-School Farnham has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.647)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Curious Explorers Day Nursery and Pre-School Farnham is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Curious Explorers Day Nursery and Pre-School Farnham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.237 for Curious Explorers Day Nursery and Pre-School Farnham is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (79 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.237

  • 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 4.41 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Curious Explorers Day Nursery and Pre-School Farnham is based on 5 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.410

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

I love Curious Explorers, the ladies caring for the kids are lovely and are very kind to both my kids.
The nursery has supported me through some very hard times. A really, really great nursery.
The nursery is great at getting my children to try new things with their variety of activities and foods available. I am always kept up to date with progress and such like through Tapestry, Daily Connect and the end of term reports

My child is always happy after being at nursery. She loves messy play, outside play, playing upstairs on climbing equipment etc and dancing and singing. They do a wide range of activities. Staff are always pleasant. Lunch and dinner are very varied (sometimes interesting).

Our experience so far, the pre-school room have been very helpful and welcoming. They were amazing at helping my daughter settle in.
Their observations on my child are very regular and I feel they are pushing my daughter well and she is making great progress. Overall I'm very happy with this nursery school.

All the staff are kind and welcoming. The nursery is a lovely place for all children from babies to four-year-old's. Each room is well equipped for the age group in them. The outside area is full of fun things for the children to play, explore and learn. My son loves going to nursery he loves all the staff and has progressed extremely well since being there. Have the staff to thank for it as they encourage, help and reassure him he can do things even if he doesn't think he can.

I'm very satisfied with the nursery, my daughter has been going for 6 months now. The varied activities and learning stimulus has been brilliant. All the staff are great, especially my daughters key worker. The attention to her development is fantastic. The staff are always willing to discuss her day and any issues I may have. The daily emails are great to receive. The actual nursery facilities I feel are great too. Lots of toys and sensory play facilities. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my friends.

My daughter has been in attendance for around 7 months and in that time she has grown hugely in confidence and in her skill set. I am confident she is secure and is extremely well looked after, speaking very highly of all the staff she is in contact with. There have been numerous occasions where staff have gone the extra mile and I am in no doubt we selected the right nursery.

I have chosen this nursery based on proximity to my workplace as well as first (and second) impression of the professionalism of staff. Staff are very well educated and seem to care for the wellbeing of my one year old as well as how I feel. Facilities within the nursery seem fine, however the outdoor play area needs improving.

My son is so happy here and it's been wonderful watching his confidence grow particularly over the last few months. The staff are very friendly and there is a wide variety of activities for him to participate it. The management have always been very accommodating with regard to hours fitting around school times and extra hours when I have needed them. The staff in the preschool room always tell me what my son has been doing and how he's got on each day and I love the tapestry notifications I often get with photos so I can see for myself.
I should also point out that this is one of the very few nurseries in Farham which doesn't charge a top up fee and you are able to use just your free 15 hours if you wish at no extra charge which is an added bonus.
I have already recommended this nursery to many friends and will continue to do so.

I could not be happier with the nursery, my child found it really hard to settle at the previous nursery but as soon as he started he began to settle and is so happy there. He has grown in confidence, is comfortable with his routine and made strong attachments with his peers and staff. I cannot thank the staff - enough all down to them.
