Reviews

7.3 Woldingham Nursery Class has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.264)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Woldingham Nursery Class 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 Woldingham Nursery Class in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.847 for Woldingham Nursery Class is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.847

  • 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 2.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woldingham Nursery Class is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.833 , then divided by 2 = 0.417

  • 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 Woldingham Nursery Class

The staff did a wonderful job of helping my son settle in and to ensure all his (and my) needs were met. He loves going! He does a range of activities there and particularly enjoys the outdoor space. The staff take the time to share things he has done during the session, so we get a real sense of his experience there. I am so delighted that we found this brilliant nursery.

Woldingham Nursery has provided an amazingly nurturing and educational and secure environment for my 4 children over the past 6 years. Staff are caring and professional facilities are fab and the early learning journal is an extremely informative document (and lovely to read!) I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone!

Woldingham pre school is a fantastic nursery that I would highly recommend. The staff are all fantastic in providing outstanding care and a very stimulating environment. The range of activities that are carried are perfectly tailored to support every area of learning. The staff provide a excellent balance of developing each individual child's learning in preparation for them starting school. This is something that I personally feel is very important. The outside space is one of the best I have come across and the children go out at least once or twice a day.The communication between the parents and teachers is also exceptional. The teachers are always available to speak to if you wish. I will be extremely sad when my son leaves in July but I know he has had the best possible start to his education.

This is a superb nursery which was recommended to me by a friend, who has herself had four children here.
It's tricky choosing a suitable nursery for your precious little ones and I looked at quite a few before I found Woldingham. Right from the start I knew I had chosen well. The staff are so friendly, caring and really love the children in there care. They are a credit to there profession. My 3 year old boy attends this nursery now as did my 6 year old girl before him and they have loved every minute. They are kept so busy with fun and exciting activities- they don't have time to miss mum. My little boy was quite shy before he started here and I was amazed at how quickly he settled in. Being here has definitely given him more confidence and he can't wait to get to nursery in the the morning - proudly carrying his little lunch box and an object to coincide with whatever the 'letter of the week' is. He has made good friends and adores all the lovely ladies that look after him so well.

The nursery is without a doubt a pre-school setting that is perfect for my daughter and was perfect for my son. As the first stepping stone into education it provides a balance of outstanding support and warmth from the lovely staff that work there as well as all the activities you would hope for in order to stimulate their emotional, physical, language, intellectual and social needs. As the transition into school approaches the nursery strikes a perfect balance in developing and encouraging skills your child will build on whist retaining the element of fun in learning.

This is a fabulous nursery school and my child is very happy here. The staff are all wonderful and are very accommodating to individuals needs. I looked at many nursery settings for my son a few years ago and am so glad I chose this nursery. The outdoor space and activities are outstanding as are the opportunities available to the children indoors - colouring, reading and writing, imagination play and cookery lessons. There are different activities scheduled for everyday and I would highly recommend this nursery for anyone considering sending their child here. I know my son will be sorry to leave this July but am in no doubt that the care and learning he has received at Woldingham Nursery will set him in good stead for Primary School in September.
