The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for The Castle Day Nursery Worthing 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 The Castle Day Nursery Worthing 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 4.761 for The Castle Day Nursery Worthing is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.761

  • 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 3.093 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Castle Day Nursery Worthing is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.093

  • 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 The Castle Day Nursery Worthing

  • Mother of Child

My son has been at Castle Day Nursery since he was about 14 months old, and has thoroughly enjoyed it from the word go. His settling in period was well handled and easy, as was his transition up to the 2-3 years room. The nursery provides a wide selection of activities which give the children lots of opportunities to develop in a variety of ways. When collecting, we are always given a good rundown of the day's events, including what's been eaten, toilet bits and what my son has been having fun doing. I would recommend the Castle Day Nursery to others and will have no hesitation in using it for my second child when the time comes.

Thank you for such a lovely review. We are always looking for ways to improve our practice and the experiences that we can offer the children.
We will pass your kind words onto the staff.

Both my children have/do attend Castle Day Nursery. I also went here as a child and the lady that looked after me is the current manager. did not look at ant other nurseries as I wanted them to come here. A friend also works here. Both my children have grown and learnt so much here. It gave my daughter a fabulous start for when she started school this September, the care of the staff is fantastic and the communication. I would highly recommend and have done.

I could not rate Castle Day nursery enough. The staff are approachable and friendly, the children are always happy and my son loves it to the pint where he cries when I arrive to take him home. The nursery is always clean, the room are easy to identify and the whole nursery exceeds all expectations it has for a nursery.

Both my children have attended The Castle Day Nursery and have loved every minute of it. I couldn't ask for a more amazing bunch of ladies to look after the needs of my children. Their learning and adjusting to starting school is amazing and the transition with my first was was smooth and calm thanks to the nursery.

Very friendly, happy nursery. Both of my son's enjoy going here. They do a wide variety of activities and the staff are caring and supportive and always very approachable. They continually encourage the children to be kind and gentle to others with the use of 'golden rules'. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

Staff are really caring and take time explaining everything about my child's day. The only thing I would like more is for my child to have more bottom changes.
