Reviews

4.9 Moat Barn Nursery School has a Review Score of 4.9 (4.944)

The Review Score of 4.9 (maximum of 10) for Moat Barn Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Moat Barn Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.944 for Moat Barn Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Moat Barn Nursery School is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0

  • 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 Moat Barn Nursery School

  • Mother of Child
    6

We were struggling to find a nursery for our daughter as we are fairly new to the area and we had a look at Moat Barn's website and it looked great. We booked to have a look around and loved it. Our daughter enjoyed it too and didn't want to leave when it was time to go. She has been attending Moat Barn for 3 months and already she has come a long way in her confidence, speech, interacting with other children, her knowledge for recognizing numbers, colours and shapes, she loves mini-melodies and also doing sign language when singing and asking for things. The staff here are all lovely and have helped our daughter settle in brilliantly since she started as she had never been in a nursery before. She talks about nursery whenever she speaks to family from back home. We would highly recommend Moat Barn to anybody looking for childcare.

What a fantastic nursery! Excellent staff, location, facilities, activities, simply everything you could wish for in a nursery. Mini melodies and football all included! We moved our 2 year old from a previous nursery - she loved her previous nursery but we have had no tears, issues or questions to go to her old nursery. This demonstrates how fantastic the staff are! Everyday we get a picture too! The online journal is fantastic! We can look at her progress and the facilities allow you to view videos too! I love this nursery! I think it would be hard to find a better nursery anywhere!

We are very happy with Moat Barn Nursery as our son has settled in very well and grown in confidence since he started, he is thriving! There are many different activities for the children to do and we are always given a very detailed report at the end of each day.

My son joined the nursery when he was 3 years old. I chose the nursery because of its setting and excellent outdoors space. My son settled in straight away and really bonded with his key person. My son enjoys riding the bikes, playing on the slides, sands pit. He also enjoys the activities such as swimming and Forest School. I cannot recommend nursery enough after seeing how happy my son is at nursery. My son once said that he would like to live at the nursery because of all the toys as long as mummy and dads stayed too.

My little girl has been going to nursery for 3 months, in this time her confidence has grown remarkably. All the staff are fantastic, they update me after every session with what my daughter has done. She has dietary requirements which the nursery are aware of and are really understanding. My daughter gets so excited on the journey to nursery and thoroughly enjoys her time there, which makes it so much easier to leave her for the day. I have already recommended this nursery to friends and would not consider sending her anywhere else.

My son has attended Moat Barn Nursery School four days a week for 2 years since he was 6 months old. From the very first day I have been very confident that he has been in very safe hands. They have taken genuine interest in him as an individual and have supported any decisions I wanted to make in relation to food he was given, nap times and any concerns I have had have always been made to feel as upmost important. The staff my son has had as key workers are utterly professional, caring and firm in just the right quantities. I have and would totally recommend Moat Barn Nursery School to other families in the area!
