The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Hawley Place Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hawley Place Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.833 for Hawley Place Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.35 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hawley Place Nursery School is based on 7 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.350

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

Reviewer Connection to Hawley Place Nursery School

  • Mother of Child
    7

My son was given such a warm welcome when he started, and as a result he settled in so quickly. He loves his days at preschool. I feel like he learns something new every day and the teachers really enthuse and inspire the children around the tasks and subjects they learn about. The school is in a beautiful setting, and it's lovely that the children can go rambling in the woods. My son's confidence has grown over the last five months as a result of this wonderful nursery school.

Hawley Place Nursery is one of the few places that l can leave my 3-year-old son comfortably and be at peace that he is safe and well looked after. It is a "home away from home" for him. The staff are brilliant, you can see they love what they do and they care for the children amazingly. My son is happy and thriving and that to me is paramount. He loves nursery, he knows almost all the nursery teachers by name and takes about of them all positively.
My 11 year old daughter went through Hawley Place Nursery those many years back and it seems that the high standards have been maintained consistently.
Long may Hawley Place Nursery continue its good work.
For the teachers, you are such an amazing people and what you do is noble and vital. It's skills and knowledge that forms the foundation for the children for the rest of their lives. Thank you.

I am extremely pleased with Hawley Place Nursery; the staff are attentive to the children's needs and provide a wide variety of fun activities that contribute to the children's learning and development. The opportunity for the children to do things such as French, PE and music is great. The Nursery also makes full use of the super outdoor areas and grounds of Hawley Place School. I would strongly recommend Hawley Place Nursery.

A very supportive and understanding environment, designed to encourage and assist. The teachers tailor their approach to suit each child's needs as individuals and are extremely proactive when additional support is required to help a child's progression and development. There is a range of activities to stimulate learning and interaction among both the children and also with their teachers.

The nursery is situated in beautiful surroundings which offer all the children a setting that promotes interest in nature and the wider world. The daily activities are well planned and varied and parents are given written information each day. This helps parents to discuss these activities with our children. The staff are really friendly and have a real caring approach to all of the children. Each child is encouraged to become independent and there is a real focus on manners and good behaviour. The nursery really prepares the children for moving up to reception and promotes learning through play. My child enjoys this structure and I couldn't recommend it more.
