The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Major Minors at Godalming Bridge Road is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Major Minors at Godalming Bridge Road in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 16 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 4.675 for Major Minors at Godalming Bridge Road is calculated as follows: ( (149 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.675

  • 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 4.571 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Major Minors at Godalming Bridge Road is based on 16 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 28 positive Reviews (140 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 28 Target = 0.571

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

We have always been very pleased with all aspects of the nursery. The staff are very professional and caring. They create great learning environments for the children and all seem very passionate and helpful. The facilities and equipment at the nursery are outstanding as are the outdoor areas. Our children have been very happy at the nursery and we would recommend the nursery to anyone who lives in the Godalming area.

My son has been at the nursery since February 2017. Exceptional nursery and amazing staff. Fantastic environment (indoors and outdoors) with a great variety of both fun and learning activities. My son is growing up in a bilingual environment thus his development is behind. The nursery has done so much to help him and he seems to have improved a lot in many areas. We are extremely happy with the level of care and learning provided by the Major Minors staff and our child loves his time there. At the end of every day, you are given detailed feedback on what your child has done which is good to know. The food seems to be varied and quite healthy and I have felt 100% confident leaving my son at the nursery, knowing that he is being well looked after. The staff are really supportive and I get a sense that they genuinely enjoy spending time with him. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for all their loving care and efforts.

Thank you so much, everyone.

We have two children at Major Minors at both ends of the process: one has been in the baby room for 4+ months and one in foundation class (pre-school) and has been all the way through from the baby room at 11 months old.
Our experience has been exceptionally good and the level of care is consistently high. Staff have always been excellent at communication and really take the time to know and care for each child. We have had so many great meetings over the years and both children have developed so well from the nursery environment.

We have always been extremely pleased with the level of care provided at Major Minors. The children are extremely happy and have great opportunities to play in a variety of settings with fantastic resources.
Although it is a big nursery, the children's keyworkers are very up to speed with what has happened during the day.
The food provided is of a very high quality with a very well thought through menu.

The learning and activities planned are to bring the best out of your child. Most of the staff are very caring and knowledgeable and my child has thrived in the environment.
With the ongoing renovations, things have been a little chaotic which is to be expected, but the staff has tried to keep parents as updated as possible.
The only area of improvement I see is the continuity of key person per child. There have been so many changes over last few months, it can be unsettling for both staff and the children.

I think it is down to the individual parent/carer to view the setting to get a genuine feel and decide for their child what is right for them. For me, it has been a shame that the renovations begun and staff changes took place just as we started. I feel this disrupted our initial settling down of my child and my first impressions. Overall though I have been satisfied with Major Minors.

I could not ask for a better nursery for my children. The staff are so caring and helpful and many feel like an extension of our family. The food is prepared on site and caters for multiple allergy children like mine. They always seem to do so many exciting activities with the children and my son is so excited about going to nursery in the mornings. You can tell they take the time to fully understand your child from the feedback you get. Absolutely first rate. My daughter starts soon and I couldn't be happier.

My son has attended Major Minors since just before his first birthday and I have been delighted with the nursery from the beginning. The team there are kind, nurturing and supportive and they have an excellent approach to facilitating his development socially and mentally. It is a fun and lively atmosphere and there always seems to be something positive going on. I do not hesitate to recommend Major Minors.

We were anxious about leaving our timid toddler for the first time but we have had so much support from Major Minors that we have been put completely at ease. Our key worker was incredibly kind and always went the extra mile by calling to update on progress and adjusting her style to cater for our little girl's needs. We are very happy.

My son started at Major Minors Godalming at 9 months old and is currently 20 months and my daughter, who also joined when she was 9 months, left in September 2016 to go to school. I am extremely happy with the care and education the outstanding staff offer not only to my children but all of the children within the Nursery. All staff and management are polite and friendly and always put the children first. I have and always will recommend Major Minors to all parents looking for the best childcare in the area. Both of my children have developed very well in all areas whilst being here and I can't thank all of the staff enough for helping to contribute towards this. Anyone looking for the best childcare for their child/children should come and look at this nursery as it really is the best. Major Minors demonstrates fantastic care, amazing staff, fun activities provided for all children, exciting resources available indoors and outdoors, spacious homerooms and a great outside area too.
