Reviews

7.7 Carols Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.657)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for Carols Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Carols Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.49 for Carols Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (59 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.49

  • 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Carols Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

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

Carol's Day Nursery is a great nursery. Our kids only started there a month ago and already they are settling in very well. The best bit about the nursery is the care given by the staff. Staff are caring, professional, trust-inducing and competent. Also, because the nursery is small and family run, it has a lovely family feel.

I just and simply love it and so does my son. The nursery is small but has everything my child needs, friendly, caring staff, nice outside space and plenty to do. All of that for a very reasonable price. My older son was going to a different nursery, bigger, more expensive and far worse, far less accommodating, where teachers changed so quickly that we could not remember their names. In Carol's nursery, the staff are happy and so are the kids around them. Thank you!

My two children have both settled well at this nursery and the oldest has been there very happily for nearly 2 and a half years. I think that the resources and activities are very good, however, it is not a purpose built nursery building and so there are some parts of the building (e.g. the corridors between children's rooms, the kitchen) which are small or awkward. However, in some ways, the building is nice because it is homely! During our time using this nursery, some staff have been away for maternity leave etc, and they have since returned, which is great for the continuity for the children. All members of the staff have been positive and have helped us and engaged with us, particularly when problems came up, e.g. when my oldest child was adjusting to a new sibling. The staff have always been genuinely interested in the children and their welfare and I think that the leadership is good. I have been very happy with the time my children have spent at the nursery.

My child has settled into nursery well & seems very happy on drop off and collection! She particularly enjoys the outside space carols has to offer & has a very strong bond with the staff members in her room and throughout the nursery.

Two of my children have attended this nursery and I've been very happy with the nursery overall. The staff really care about the children and it makes a nice homely environment. Improvements have been made which were needed like the garden/outside space. Whilst we are still happy with the nursery setting, we do feel more improvements could be made, in particular, a better end of day handover - sometimes it is lacking due to staff changes throughout the day and the consistency of Tapestry entries. As a parent, it would be nice to know/see more about activities they do during the day.
The pre-school teacher is brilliant! Staff returning from leave has been great, as they are what made us choose the nursery in the first place - 4 years ago.
Whilst the atmosphere of the nursery at the moment seems to vary weekly for reasons unknown to me - overall we are happy with the nursery and the staff who look after the children.

Really happy with this little nursery. Mainly because staff are so great with the kids and care for them well. The nursery is accommodating when it can be too. The pre-school teacher is brilliant (they all are).

The nursery has a very homely feeling to it. The key person of my daughter was extremely caring and loving. She carefully took notes and listened to my daughters' needs. Progress reports/development of my child were regularly updated and informed. The manager was always available whenever needed. A very happy and friendly atmosphere.

Our son has had a very good experience at Carols. The staff are very committed to the children and take a lot of pride in their work. The nursery is constantly implementing innovations and new activities. The management and our son's key carers do many updates and activities to engage us (the parents).

My daughter started this nursery this month in baby room. Before I choose this nursery I done a lot of research and decided this is the best place for my daughter. The staff is lovely. The place is not too big,its very cosy and children looked after very well.
