Reviews

6.7 Toad Hall Nursery Felcott Road has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.685)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Toad Hall Nursery Felcott Road is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Toad Hall Nursery Felcott Road in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.2 out of 5 from 11 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.45 for Toad Hall Nursery Felcott Road is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.45

  • 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 2.235 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toad Hall Nursery Felcott Road is based on 11 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 23.4 positive Reviews (117 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 23.4 Target = 0.470 , then divided by 2 = 0.235

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

We were very impressed with Felcott Road from the day we looked around. The facilities, particularly the outside area, are fantastic.

I was also very impressed with the mathematics and reading programmes that are in place.

The food is varied and nutritional and we always know that our daughter will be fed well.

The extra events are very thoughtful and go the extra mile, such as Mother's Day tea and Father's Day BBQ.

My daughter took a little while to settle as she is only there 1 day a week but for some months now, has been going in willingly and happily and she always has a great day.

I would thoroughly recommend Felcott Road to any prospective parents.

My son has been extremely happy at Toad Hall, Felcott Road for 18 months, having started at 1 year old. All the staff are friendly and caring and are obviously fond of all of the children. The children seem happy and enjoy their time at nursery. Sometimes my son doesn't want to leave at the end of the day!

Food seems to be of good quality, generally nutritious but also tasty and plentiful.

The approach to accidents and illness is also pragmatic which I find very helpful.

The administration and management at the nursery is efficient and flexible which makes life easier when you are a busy parent.

My two children have both very much enjoyed their time at Toad Hall. The staff are kind, fond of the children and passionate about what they do. My daughter is now in Reception at school and when she started she had been very well prepared by Toad Hall, which made the transition into school so much easier. She started school with a good grasp of letters and phonics, which has stood her in great stead. My son is still at Toad Hall, and is very happy there - he particularly loves the large outside area and the fact the children get a lot of outdoor time.

My child enjoys coming to the nursery and get on with both children and staff. I am satisfied with the variety of activities the children do throughout the day. The outside area is great, the largest I have seen when looking at other nursery schools.

Couldn't recommend the team at Felcott Road highly enough. Lovely girls who have given my hard to settle daughter as many cuddles as she has needed. Really professional and we are very pleased with how my daughter has progressed since she started coming here.
