Reviews

7.8 Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.844)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw 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 4.722 for Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 3.122 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target = 0.122

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

Reviewer Connection to Toad Hall Nursery Ottershaw

  • Mother of Child

I have been a parent at Toadhall for a little while now and I really enjoy this nursery for my child, there was a staff turnover last year where we had a few staff changes but Toadhall managed this well and have had a big change in leadership and management in the more recent months and I feel this has had a massive change to the Nursery.
Key people are welcoming and warm and they have found someone who is leading the team in the right direction, They have taught my child to be confident and to try things. They have exciting activities and they do things I would never even thought of doing at home and there is so much messy and sensory play for babies. The Staff are hard working and the ladies have an amazing bond with my child. The manager and her team should be very proud!

When my daughter joined Toad Hall Nursery she had never been looked after by anyone else but instantly felt comfortable with the staff and has since become a confident child who adores every member of the team. Everyday she can't wait to go to nursery and has come on leaps and bounds emotionally and mentally since attending. My daughter is truly happy and gets so much from being there. Thank you guys!

The nursery is friendly and sociable. My child has developed well during his time in the nursery in to a happy, outgoing and confident child. Since the Manager's arrival I feel that the nursery has a more professional feel and it certainly looks cleaner & better organised. When he is there I know he is safe and loved.

Description:

I have worked in day nurseries since 1996, working my way from apprentice Nursery Nurse, Nursery Nurse, Deputy Manager to Nursery Manager in 2004.

More recently, I have been supporting a small nursery company as an area manager, looking after four nurseries and an after school club.

I love working with children and could never see myself doing any other job.

When I am with the children, I love to take part in song time and stories.

I look forward to working in partnership with you to provide exceptional care for your child, promoting communication, fun and learning
