  • 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.643 for Caring Daycare at Dorking Westcott Road is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.643

    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.

    The 4.577 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Caring Daycare at Dorking Westcott Road is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

My 4-year-old son has been attending the nursery since he was 1 and a half years old, and has always been happy there. The staff are wonderful, always supportive of the children both at play and in their first forays into phonics and writing. The children are always entertained and challenged by a range of activities from story time and role play to sporting activities in the nursery garden.
I also have a 1-year-old daughter who has been attending the nursery for five months. We were initially concerned about how she might react to unfamiliar surroundings at such an early age, but we had nothing to fear. Whenever I collect her she is happy and smiling and seems to love interacting with the staff and other children.
We are always kept well informed of the children's daily activities, how they've eaten, and what they've achieved. I would happily recommend the nursery to other parents.

My children joined the nursery not long after their first birthdays.

My eldest is now at school and from the moment I put him into the nursery I knew he would be looked after well. The environment is very nuturing, the staff are caring and informatative always providing detail of what my children have been doing throughout the day. The preschool staff were amazing and really gave my child a step up the ladder at school by working with jolly phonics and other phonics activities whislt he was with them.

My second child who will shortly be heading up to preschool has really bonded with the nursery staff and truley enjoys his time at nursery whether it is playing in the well equiped garden, enjoying quiet time in the book corner or playing with friends and ICT toys.

I would not think twice about recommending the nursery to other parents.

Our baby is happy and well cared-for at Caring Daycare. We always receive lots of information about her day (what she has eaten, sleeps, nappies, activities) and the staff are pro-active in finding out from us what she's been up to outside of the nursery setting (e.g. changes to her food preferences and milk timings) so they can keep up to date with her development and needs. She has only been attending for a few months but has already bonded well with her key worker and seems to enjoy her days. The staff have been helpful in helping her settle in and dealing with her initial separation anxiety.

Our son always loves going to the nursery. The staff are friendly and really form a bond with the children. What I also like is that, at the end of the day, when I pick him up again, they tell me exactly what they've been doing that day and how my son behaved. That way, I get a really good idea what's going on in there.

The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful and our son genuinely loves going each day; not just to see his friends but to see his class workers. We like that he gets to plays outside in a garden with real grass and trees and he eats well. The Manager has done a great job since she joined and the staff all care about the children and all seem very happy in their jobs. We are very pleased we chose them!

My son started here at 9 months old and has always loved it. He dashes through the door and straight into his room which makes leaving him so much easier.
The staff are great, incredibly kind and he talks about them and his friends from nursery all the time. The range of activities they get up to always impresses me.
The rooms are large and have a lovely homely feel. There's a lovely outdoor area and the children are encouraged to play outside, dig and explore.
He also loves the food!

My son has been so happy at this nursery from when he started at 7 months old.
All the staff are kind and caring, and know him well, so It's always been an easy drop off. The records they keep are very thorough.

The rooms are spacious and well laid out, and his days are full of a range of activities. He has also made a lot of progress there.
