Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.526 for Footprints Day Nursery Ashford is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 78 Ratings = 4.526

  • 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 3.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Footprints Day Nursery Ashford is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.417

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

The nursery provides to the children great facilities both indoors and outdoors.

All the carers are great with children and provide support to help develop all individuals.

They also take good care of the environment and all of the children are taught how to take care of it.

Baldeep Kambo at Footprints Day Nursery Ashford responded to this review on 22 May 2018:

Thank you for your review, staff are always looking at innovative ways to improve through self-evaluation and parental feedback.

The nursery settings and teachers are very friendly and approachable.

I am happy with the variety of activities and learning done with children and find my child enjoying the same. The food is also nice at the nursery and my child enjoys the food.

The 'show me' time is also helpful for children to talk about things and has helped my daughter to talk about different things using her imagination.

Overall I am a happy parent.

Lovely nursery and staff. My son attended here 2011-2013 and now my daughter since 2014. I like the fact it isn't too big, so not overwhelming for the children.

The location is great and the building is decorated well. The play area is of a high standard. Overall a very nice and clean setting.

I would definitely recommend to others.

Emma Ross, Manager at Footprints Day Nursery Ashford responded to this review on 05 Jun 2017:

Thank you Harpreet for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We have really enjoyed having both your children here and will be very sad when your daughter leaves in September for school.

A good nursery. My son's key workers are good, experienced professionals. They helped my son last year to adjust in a new nursery. It was challenging for them and for us.
In this current month, they have lots of good activities and my son is enjoying these a lot and happy to go there every day.

Excellent. Every child is treated as an individual by the nursery and each of them is known and familiar which only varies (for the better) according to that person being a key worker for the child and all of the children seem happy and content and that's a huge compliment to the nursery.

The nursery is well run and organised. Although a few staff have left over recent months I still feel that my child is being looked after and cared for in the same manner as before. My son has noticeably developed in his confidence and learning since coming to Footprints. Their outdoor space is fantastic and they use every opportunity to be outside which is such a bonus. They also do trips to the local community which also helps expand their minds and experiences.

I am very impressed with organisation in the nursery, pegs, shoes, trays, folders, layouts. Detailed debrief at the end of the day. Very pleased with healthy food available and play activities outside. Safeguarding the children is very prominent. Sometimes the owner gets involved with the children and I am pleased to see this.
