Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.871 for Clarence House, March is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.871

  • 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 4.7 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clarence House, March is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.700

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

My son started nursery there when he was 29 months old, he then moved into preschool at the nursery until he was 4. I have always found the staff and nursery welcoming and friendly and my son has come out of it a very confident boy with brilliant social skills. The outside area is amazing and he always came home smiling and full of talk about everyone and everything. We will be sending our youngest two there soon too, as our experience has been very good. They feed the children lovely healthy and varied food too.

My daughter really enjoys going to the nursery and she has learnt so much and developed her social skills. The staff are always friendly. There was an incident at the nursery with my daughter and a worker where she didn't follow policy, the manager dealt with the situation very efficiently and kept me updated and reassured us it was being dealt with following policies and procedures. Would highly recommend the nursery.

We have been so happy with our daughter's progress while attending Clarence House. The staff, especially her assigned care worker, are amazing and feel while my daughter is there she is safe. She loves attending and always so excited to tell me what she's done during her day from computer playing to reading to making stuff. We're so happy we would highly recommend this nursery for a first timer as has a lovely home feeling!

My little boy is so happy here. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. You can tell by the way they speak to the children that they genuinely love and care for them. If my little boy is happy, then so am I. Always recommend this nursery.

The nursery got taken over by Clarence House a good few months ago and I feel the existing staff have coped extremely well with all of the changes (both managerial and building changes). The nursery appears better for the children, much more space and an updated environment. The staff are excellent with both our children (1-year-old and 3-year-old) and our children are always excited to attend.

We have regular updates about their development, learning and behaviour. The tapestry app we find great. The managers have been very efficient answering any questions we have had, very prompt and understanding. We highlighted the food menu not being overly child-friendly meals and this seems to of been changed for the better.

My son of 21 months has attended here for a year and is very happy! So is Mum and Dad! All staff here are fantastic, very caring, thoughtful and helpful and have been absolutely superb throughout the changeover of owner and update, they are an absolute treasure to the nursery.
My sons key workers are brilliant ladies who are beyond words lovely!! The new management are very approachable and professional, and are very supportive of my sons development and needs. The new layout and update look fantastic, very bright and inviting. My son is always happy when he gets into the nursery and happy to stay on even when we go to collect him! He is very well looked after, well fed and cared for. You can always hear children laughing and having fun in the grounds during the day when passing by!! Very happy thank you!

Both of my boys (2.5y and 8m) love the nursery and so do I. They have fun, they're well looked after, cared for and fed. Every day when I drop them off or pick them up they're both happy. The staff are definitely the best people to look after them while my husband and I are at work. Since the renovation, the nursery is bright and colourful with lots more functional space. I can't comment on how the nursery deal with issues as we've never had one. I couldn't be happier with the nursery. A huge thank you to them for taking such good care of my boys and loving them like I know they do.
