Reviews

9.2 Caring Daycare at Guildford has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.194)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Caring Daycare at Guildford is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Caring Daycare at Guildford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.729 for Caring Daycare at Guildford is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.465 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Caring Daycare at Guildford is based on 8 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.465

  • 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. Welcoming and caring staff who genuinely enjoy looking after the children. It's also recently undergone a complete renovation, so the facilities are clean, tidy and create a great atmosphere.

My daughter started at the nursery in August 2017, I was worried about how she would settle in after going to another setting. She settled in so well, the transition and settling in period was amazing, I can't thank the staff enough for all they did to support this.
Since being here I have had no tears and only positive talk from her each evening.
I highly recommend this nursery.

Very friendly, caring and helpful staff. Both our children seem very happy there. Frequent changes of key staff can be a bit annoying but generally, we have nothing to complain about.

The staff at CDC Guildford are extremely caring. My son loves his teachers and is happy to go each day. The environment has seen rapid improvement over the last month or so. The staff ensure a range of different activities is available. My son particularly looks forward to sports lessons on Tuesdays and regales me with what he has learnt.

This is a lovely nursery environment and I am very happy with my child attending here. You can see the staff all care for the children and have special bonds. The rooms are very well equipped with toys/resources. My child always tells me he has had a good day and is happy to be here.

The staff at the nursery are so kind and caring and have looked after my little boy fantastically since he's been there. The activities they do with them are really interesting and I'm sure he's bored when he's at home with me now!
Would highly recommend to anyone!

My son has attended this nursery since September 2014. The care he receives is excellent and he has a wonderful bond with all of the staff. He is very happy at this nursery and enjoys himself. He is encouraged to be independent and develop himself and he is a confident young boy. I would recommend the nursery and the staff to anyone looking for somewhere to help their child grow in themselves and build up their confidence.

We have been using this nursery for the last five years and have found it to be excellent. The staff are friendly and form great relationships with the children. There are lots of things for the kids to do and my boys have loved every minute of going here. I would thoroughly recommend it.

My daughter has been with Caring Daycare since I returned to work. Not only is she well cared for but I feel the staff have a genuine affection for the children. If certain members of staff are working, I'm lucky to get a hug goodbye as my daughter runs over to greet them! They certainly all go to a lot of effort to ensure the rooms stay interesting for the children, and aren't shy of messy play. There are Christmas shows, fairs, sports day, and plenty more events that the staff put a lot of time into. The initial reasons for our choice were its proximity to my workplace and the opening hours (which have been immensely helpful), but I don't think our daughter would let us take her anywhere else now.
