Gomshall Lane, Shere, Guildford GU5 9HE
At Friends Forest Nursery - Shere, every child from three months will regularly be outside or offsite all year round.
In heavy rains and high winds, children stay inside or may choose to explore a project indoors. Regular sessions in the countryside, forest, park, library, nursery gardens, a lunch-time cook-out or tea time picnic will take place whenever possible. It is therefore vital that children can access a full outdoor kit every day.
The nursery takes great care to choose caring well-educated staff who are professional and conscientious. Its high standards are maintained with regular training and regular reflection so that it can upgrade the practice.
It regularly reviews emergency evacuation procedures, safeguarding, child protection, equality and health and safety issues. Most staff are qualified to level 3 and above.

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 4.333 for Friends Forest Nursery - Shere is calculated as follows: ( (4 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.333
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:
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.
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.
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.

All of the team have been very friendly and welcoming. My Son has settled very well into the Nursery and has really enjoyed his first week. Whenever I pick him up it looks like they have had lots of fun and he has spoken a lot about their Forest school outings.
