Reviews

8.3 Toad Hall Nursery Ripley has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.315)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Toad Hall Nursery Ripley 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Toad Hall Nursery Ripley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.815 for Toad Hall Nursery Ripley is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 54 Ratings = 4.815

  • 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toad Hall Nursery Ripley is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250

  • 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 been really pleased with Toad hall Nursery. Our son took a few weeks to settle but now loves going. He is always so happy when we collect him. The staff have been brilliant in helping him settle and have reassured us as anxious parents! We would highly recommend this nursery.

My daughter has attended Toad Hall Ripley since she was 9 months old and we really will be sad to say goodbye when she leaves for 'big school' this summer. She wakes up every day eager to go to the nursery and I take huge comfort in knowing I am leaving her somewhere where she is happy and well-cared for.

She has made plenty of friends which has been completely facilitated by the nursery as have the friendships we have built with other parents as a result of the numerous events put on by the nursery throughout the year!

The staff are fantastic! Their communication, whether it be about my daughters care needs on a daily basis or her learning and development on a whole has amazed me. They are always friendly and chatty and offering tips and ideas on ways to support her at home as we prepare for the big move. I have no doubt that she will breeze through reception using the social skills and reading, writing and mathematical support she has received at Toad Hall.

Highly recommended!

Amazing. The staff were open and supportive, available and flexible. Topping off with the fact that my child enthusiastically threw herself into playing with everyone, they were welcoming to my niece who is (austistic) and their communication was great.

I am happy with all aspects of the nursery. The staff seem to go to great lengths to cope with my son and they are always warmly welcoming. My son is always pleased to arrive and reluctant to leave. I believe he is beginning to learn and seems more wiling to try at nursery than at home. The rooms are clean whenever I visit and security is of a good standard. Children are obviously well known as individuals and all seem to react well to the staff. If I could afford to leave my son all day, all week I would be happy to do that and he'd be happy to stay there.

Description:

Hello my name is Lindsey Burnell, I am your nursery manager and would like to welcome you to Ripley nursery.

I have over 10 years of experience working with babies and children and I look forward to continuing with Toad Hall nurseries.

Over the years I have successfully gained many childcare relevant qualifications to support and extend my practice working in early years. The Early Years Teacher Status/Ba Hons in Early childhood studies is my most recent and highest qualification to date. I enjoy working alongside my team of 10 practitioners to create a safe and fun learning environment for the children in our care.

Our aim at Ripley nursery is to ensure the children have an outstanding time, learning through their play to extend their skills and development through positive relationships both at nursery and at home. That is why we are keen to develop strong partnerships with our parents to ensure our approach with your child is effective and successful during their time at Toad Hall.

I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our nursery.
