Reviews

9.8 Stanton Farm Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.780)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Stanton Farm Day Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Stanton Farm Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.78 for Stanton Farm Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.78

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Stanton Farm Day Nursery is based on 5 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target Reached = 1

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

My child (3yrs old) loves Stanton Farm Day Nursery. She's attended full time since the age of 1. She loves the staff and has made many friends. It's not the largest or flashiest nursery. In fact, it's pretty small and located on a working farm. I view this as a great advantage.

- The rural location means the nursery has a lovely large garden. My daughter can run about the lovely, fully enclosed, garden and have a right old time. Whether having a picnic under the shade of the apple trees in the beautiful orchard, making a complete mess in the mud kitchen, making dens in the trees or whizzing around the garden on scooters.

- The size means "class" sizes are very small and my daughter knows everybody! All parents know each other too.

It's is extremely rare that when I drop her off on a morning that she does not want to stay. In fact, it's far more likely that she does not want to leave when I come pick her up! A common question on a Saturday is "Am I going to nursery, Daddy?".

Both my daughters attended the nursery and loved their time there. My younger one has been there since she was one. Now she's leaving the nursery to start school in September knowing her numbers, how to write her name and well equipped to start the new journey in the big school.
My older daughter learnt to ride the bike without stabilisers there. The nursery has a big garden with an orchard, veg patch, mud kitchen, sand pit and plenty of corners to explore. But what makes the nursery an excellent provision is their dedicated and caring staff - always accommodating with my requests and genuinely having kids' interest at heart. The nursery records kids' learning on Tapestry, which allows parents to track their progress online by viewing comments, photos and videos on the portal. Excellent place, conveniently located for villages north of Cambridge, Science and Business Park.

I am extremely happy with Stanton Farm Day Nursery. When they said "We are like a family" I didn't think they really meant it, but really they do. Extra help and support in times of family upset, staying late with children when parents get caught in commuter delays - key workers returning out of hours to be with children whose parents are delayed. All this on top of strong delivery of the Early Year framework and an excellent old-fashioned ethos that children learn through play, that targets are grown-up business. My child adores nursery and I am confident that they are doing an excellent job with both children and parents.

Nice nursery with lovely outdoor space.
The staff are lovely, the food is great.
My son is quite shy but has really come out of his shell during his 2 years there.
I would recommend this nursery and will most likely be sending my youngest son there also.

Wonderful nursery, my children are so happy here. It is playful, attentive, thoughtful, interactive, involved. Massive garden - a real emphasis on exploring and being outside, whatever the weather and the children are free to go in and out if they like. Good meals, nothing bad to say except that my 4-year-old twins will be leaving to start school and for that, I am very sorry. Cannot recommend this place enough. I have an older boy whom I sent elsewhere, now I see with much regret. This nursery is 5 minutes out of Cambridge and worth that journey in every way for an outstanding quality of fun and care that simply is not in existence in Cambridge. Thank you Stanton Farm.
