Reviews

8.5 The Voyager Academy Nursery has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.530)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for The Voyager Academy Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Voyager Academy Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 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 4.977 for The Voyager Academy Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (129 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.977

  • 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 3.553 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Voyager Academy 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.303

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

Highly recommend this nursery. My son has only been going back for a few months but the positive change in him is already showing. The staff are friendly and go above and beyond to help all the children. I feel comfortable with him being there and will be starting my 1-year-old in the near future. The baby room is fantastic with brilliant staff. My son had a choking incident and the staff knew what to do and with the quick reaction from them, he was fine.
They are currently helping my son as he is behind on a few things but the time they are investing in him is already proving to be beneficial and he's growing up so quickly. Thank you to all the staff for doing what you do, especially to my son's key worker who is amazing with him.

Excellent nursery and wonderful staff. My child loves it and has come on so much since starting. The staff really care for the children and excellent communication from them. This was the first and only nursery we viewed and 2 years on we wouldn't look back.

Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate the feedback

The standard of childcare is exceptional, the standard of education is exceptional, communication to parents is exceptional. The safety and welfare of the children is paramount at all times.
The children learn new things all the time through exciting games and songs. They take advantage of their surroundings to ensure the children get a variety of adventure in their day.

Thank you so much for the positive review :-)

Absolutely brilliant setting - my son joined during last term and has enjoyed every second. The staff can't do enough to accommodate the children's and the parents needs.
Everyone is so friendly and the children learn through play everyday.
Couldn't come more highly recommended ??

Thank you for you kind words.

My daughter is currently in the baby room at the Voyager Nursery and she absolutely loves it. She settled in so quickly thanks to the amazing practitioners and now when she sees the colourful fence of the nursery in the morning she gets so excited. Having worked at a nursery myself I was worried about finding one I was happy with. I looked at many nurseries but as soon as we walked into The Voyager I knew it was the right choice. I always look forward to finding out what exciting activities she has been up to every day and can't wait to see how she progresses through each room. We recommend this nursery to everyone!!!

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. We really appreciate it.

My daughter loves attending nursery, she has made some lovely friends since she started.
I love to hear her singing the songs she has learnt and playing at home pretending her toys are her friends.
Her development is amazing and we are so proud of how she has flourished, the staff are loving and caring and give us daily progress on what she has been doing.

She will certainly miss attending in September when she starts her next journey at primary school.

Thank you William for your lovely review, it's great that Daddies share their appreciation and feedback too. Best wishes Alison

My daughter has been coming here for two years now and has grown into a confident young lady. She has loved coming to the nursery every day and is always happy to come. She loves all the staff here and will miss everyone when she leaves this year to go to big school.

Thank you for your lovely review :-)

This is a fantastic nursery, our child is always happy to go. The friendly staff are incredibly dedicated to their children, helping them learn through play in so many ways. Trained staff for SEN support available as well as a separate sensory room. Great communication with the parents and very community based through participating in various projects. The Voyager Nursery feels like an extended family to us and our child has made incredible progress thanks to their support and dedication.

Thank you for the lovely review, we really appreciate it :-)

The voyager nursery along with all of the staff are brilliant, my son has been through the transition of all of the rooms from baby to pre school, each time has been smooth and successful, the staff are confident, helpful and a credit to the Nursery. There is flexibility to suit all parents in any type of need. The children have access to many activities varying every day from the sports hall, the nursery meadow and even taking home the nursery snail and stick insects! I feel 100 percent confident in leaving him in the mornings and look forward to hearing about his fun filled day when I pick him up!
