Reviews

9.2 Nursery on the Green and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.200)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Nursery on the Green and Preschool 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 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nursery on the Green and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 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 4.825 for Nursery on the Green and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (220 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 263 Ratings = 4.825

  • 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 4.375 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nursery on the Green and Preschool is based on 6 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.375

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

Nursery On The Green and Preschool has it all.

A nurturing environment, a homely atmosphere, friendly staff, a community feel and all headed up by an approachable management team.

My son, who has recently started school, left nursery as a confident boy, ready to take the leap into school life. He has settled wonderfully, and I attribute that greatly due to the care and preparation that the nursery provided.

My daughter remains at the nursery and couldn't be happier in their care.

Thank you to everyone involved in their care to date, and to those who will cross my daughters path in the future.

After two children and eight years at Nursery on the Green and Preschool, we are very sad to say goodbye! My children have both had such a happy positive experience throughout their time in each of the four rooms at the nursery. The staff are all friendly, kind and helpful and I have always felt confident that my children are well cared for. The nursery has a great management team too.

From our initial visit, all staff and management made us feel very welcome and expressed a genuine interest in us and our son. Our son is reluctant to eat, become involved in messy play and socialise on occasions and the staff have been extremely helpful and understanding of these issues and are actively working on these eg always having yoghurts of something he likes available, being fed by his keyworker on a knee if necessary. Great feedback provided after every session, have recommended nursery to friends in the area.

Two of my children have attended Nursery on the Green and Preschool 14 years apart. Both children were looked after by the manager. She is kind and caring and extremely invested in the Nursery. I want to send my new baby if I decide to go back to work! I could list many of the care assistants that have influenced and helped raise my two daughters! Drop in and meet them first as you will always be made welcome.

Both my kids have been at this great nursery. My daughter loved this nursery (she was there from 13 months till she went to school) when she was there and son doesn't want to leave when he goes to school in September (he has been here since he was 6 months).

My son has only been going to Nursery on the Green for 5 months and absolutely loves it. He has settled in great and the staff are extremely friendly both with my son and us! His progress has really come on since he has been going to nursery and its great to have a setting where we feel comfortable leaving him, knowing he is going to be so well looked after and keep him stimulated throughout the day.

My daughter joined in October 2015 and like any child, was a bit scared at first, but everyone worked so well with her she has thrived since being at Nursery on the Green and absolutely loves going!
They work so well with me as a parent and keep me up to date with everything that she is doing and learning. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since being at the nursery, the staff are brilliant and always welcoming to my daughter, it was the best decision I could have made putting my daughter in this nursery.

This is a wonderful homely setting to send your child. The staff are passionate about the care and education of all children in all rooms within the nursery. Children's safety and well-being is paramount, and this is shown through their 'candyfloss' safety superhero.

All children appear to be content, confident and thriving within this nursery.

The management team are very friendly, supportive and understanding. Any questions I had were answered promptly and with a very professional manner.

I felt very happy as a mother to send my Daughter to the nursery knowing she would have a fun/educational filled day that she loved.

Thankyou to all the team at Nursery on the Green and Preschool.

My daughter is due to change class soon and I was informed with plenty of notice, I was given a handout explaining all about her new classroom, the key carers and a little about what she will be doing. I then had a meeting with her key carer and we discussed all the daily activities and goings on in great detail. My daughter was then allocated time slots over the next month to go visit her new classroom so as to have a smooth transition. I have been extremely impressed with the whole system, and am very happy at this nursery.

My 3-year old daughter has been attending the Nursery on the Green for over 15 months now and I am delighted with the care she has been receiving. She loves the nursery and staff and has made lots of friends there. She is thriving in what is a very caring environment, and I never feel guilty dropping her off in the morning as I know she will have a great time and will be well looked after.

I could not have picked anywhere better for my son to go, I always feel 100% at ease when leaving him at nursery and watching him toddle straight off to breakfast, the staff are amazing in Hedgehogs and have built particularly great relationships with my little one and I am so appreciative of this as it makes the leaving them and paying for childcare so much easier!)

The nursery offers great variance of activities, learning and an excellent food menu.

I recommended the nursery to a close friend whose son starts in May - I would recommend it to anyone.

Staff are always on hand and make time to listen at drop off and pick up. My daughter has really flourished at nursery on the green and loves going. Extra curricular activities such as Spanish, sewing and cookery are big talking points at home! Her development in the preschool room is tracked well and we receive regular feedback. I feel she is getting great preparation for school life there.

Marketa, Mrkg at Nursery on the Green and Preschool responded to this review on 29 Sep 2015:

Thank you for your positive feedback

My son started this nursery as a very shy, sensitive and a recluse around other people. Nobody could look or talk to him as he would start crying. We are a military family and move around quite a lot, unfortunately this has resulted in my son not having experience with many other adults apart from myself and my husband.
However since starting this nursery and only being there for 3 weeks, he has turned right around, he loves the staff that look after him and talks about them when at home, we no longer have tears when looking at new people, in fact he went as far as saying 'hello' to a complete stranger walking her dog yesterday! And if you knew my son that is a massive achievement. The nursery is his second home and the staff are his second family, they are fantastic and I cannot praise them enough!
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone! They're outstanding!

Thank you very much for your lovely review.

My little boy has been at Nursery on the Green for a just over a year year and is extremely happy. It's always a daunting time leaving you child for the first time but the Nursery staff are so welcoming which made settling in so much easier. As parents we've been so pleased with my son's development since joining the nursery so a big thank you to the brilliant nursery staff. The range of activities the children undertake is great and the food menu is amazing! I would always recommend Nursery on the Green.
