Reviews

6.5 Toad Hall Nursery Horley has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.507)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Toad Hall Nursery Horley 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Toad Hall Nursery Horley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 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 4.833 for Toad Hall Nursery Horley is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 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 1.674 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toad Hall Nursery Horley is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 20.6 positive Reviews (103 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20.6 Target = 0.097 , then divided by 2 = 0.049

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

My son started at Toad Hall in January 2016 and settled really quickly. The staff were great at getting to know him and taking things at his pace. We immediately felt we had made the right decision and after the first week he seemed to have settled in brilliantly.
The staff are all welcoming, helpful and friendly. They are creative and enthusiastic, and are always thinking of new ways to entertain the children and teach through play.
The facilities are excellent, every effort is made to create a welcoming environment, and they are continually making improvements to keep the nursery fresh and up to date.
My son has come on in leaps and bounds over the last six months and Toad Hall have made it so much easier for me going back to work; I can relax knowing he is in good hands and having a great time!

My daughter has been going to Toad Hall since she was 3 months old. She is now getting ready for infants school this September.
Everytime she goes, she always has a fun time and lots of outdoor learning which she loves.
The staff are always friendly, down to earth and very trustworthy with the care and education of the children.
As for the food. My daughter is a fussy eater and she will always eat the lunch there and always smells good as I walk in to collect her.
The management will go out their way to accommodate your needs and they all are up for a good chat especially if you need to have a hearty chat.
Now my son is lined up to start at 4 months.
