The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Noah's Ark at Woking 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Noah's Ark at Woking in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.761 for Noah's Ark at Woking is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.761

  • 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 3.077 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Noah's Ark at Woking is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.077

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

Noah's Ark put on a 'Stay and Play' session for mother's day, combined with a charity event. What a completely wonderful experience. It was well organised, the staff were clearly enjoying the event along with the children. All the mums I spoke to had a wonderful time. Well done Noah's for being so inventive.

I am delighted with the care and education my niece receives at Noah's Ark. The staff are attentive and create stimulating opportunities for her to flourish in. She particularly enjoys the unique outside learning facilities! Seeing her performance in the nativity this week has highlighted to us all just how well she is doing thanks to all at Noah's Ark.

My daughter has attended Noah's Ark since she was 3months old (she is now 3) This was the nursery I attended when I was a child and had such fond memories of the animals and welcoming environment. Leaving such a young baby at the nursery was always going to be hard but the welcoming staff reassured us as a family and made the settling process so much easier. The nursery has a real 'family atmosphere' where the staff are happy to help and form such loving relationships with the children! Highly recommend!

I have two children who have attended Noah's Ark nursery, one now in school and one currently in the toddler room. The nursery is unique and offers a range of opportunities for the children such as forest school and Montessori sessions with qualified teachers. The nursery itself is clean and tidy but has a homely, family feel to it. The staff are fantastic and will always support in whatever way they can. I would always recommend this nursery to parents looking for quality care for their children.

My daughter has been attending Noah's Ark since April 2016 and has flourished since being at the setting. She is a naturally clingy child but has formed good, healthy attachments to the staff in her room. She is now ready to move onto the next room and I have every confidence that her transition will be smooth and she will settle into her new room well. She is also enjoys being outdoors so Noah's Ark is perfect for her to get out and run off some of her extra energy.

Both my children have attended Noah's Ark and I cannot commend them highly enough. The staff are very supportive and the wellbeing of the children is paramount. They plan fantastic activities and events and encourage parents to join in with these. The outdoor space is brilliant, with a lovely garden and large forest space for forest school sessions which my children particularly enjoyed.
