Reviews

8 Charlwood House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.029)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Charlwood House Day Nursery 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Charlwood House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 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 4.681 for Charlwood House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.681

  • 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 3.348 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Charlwood House Day Nursery 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 20.4 positive Reviews (102 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20.4 Target = 0.098

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

All staff here very helpful and friendly, keep me up to date with how my son is doing and any issues are dealt with quickly. He has been poorly a few times and they have always called me to let me know how he is doing, has developed really well with his eating since going here too and the nursery always seems to have a good array of toys and equipment for him to play with, kids always seem really happy !!

Our son has attended this for 18 months now since he was 1, and he loves it. He's developed so much thanks to the fantastic staff at Charlwood. We're sorry to be taking him out, but a job change forces this. The nursery has always been great, our son never wants for anything, and the feedback we get from the staff is fantastic. The nursery is flexible, able to facilitate extra days when required and offering term time only care has saved us a fortune. The house and grounds are great, and we're happy that our son gets to play outside rain or shine!

I have had a daughter going to nursery here since September 2012 and my little boy started in Jan 16. They both love it. When my daughter goes off to school in September she will miss all her friends and staff very much!

My son has regularly attended Charlwood House 2 days a week since he was six months old. He is now in his third class. We have only had positive experiences in our dealings with the nursery. All the staff are caring and approachable and one can tell the children at the nursery are happy. Lots of activities organised and my son always enjoys himself.
