Reviews

8.5 Guinea Lane Nursery has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.488)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Guinea Lane 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Guinea Lane Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.729 for Guinea Lane Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 3.759 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Guinea Lane Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.259

  • 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 Guinea Lane Nursery

My children love going to the nursery for each session as they always have a variety of activities and trips.
The staff are brilliant, always happy in the morning and engage with us straight away and give a daily report when collecting the children of exactly how they have been.

The variety of books and toys are great for helping children develop their playing and learning. My children have both developed new skills and the work the nursery staff do is brilliant.

I am very pleased with the overall standard of care. I feel the staff are friendly to myself and daily feedback is very honest and can be productive. When my daughter gets upset she gets the extra attention she craves with all staff. The resources are good and the garden space provides a wide range of opportunities for imaginative play and bikes. We love their mud kitchen. I was very pleased with how much attention was paid to my daughter's interests - they bought Superhero dressing up because she likes them.

Guinea Lane is a small nursery with a family feeling. The same staff who look after my 2 year old son, were there 3 years ago when my daughter came to this nursery. The quality of care is very high. The atmosphere is a happy one. The children come home happy every day with lots of stories to tell. Having your children cared for and given so many creative and exploring experiences is priceless. The staff here are wonderful and genuinely care and bond with the children.

Due to work and circumstances we have moved around the country and the world quite a bit and I have never been so happy with a nursery as we are with Guinea Lane.
My daughter who is 4 now comes home very happy and has made very good friends in there.

The staff are so friendly and polite, well spoken and caring that you feel it's all a big family, not as other nursery's that it's to maximise earning potential and neglecting the kids.

The food and cleanliness is outstanding and my daughter and I will be very sad to have to leave such an amazing place to start school.

I highly recommend it from all aspects and to be honest they have treated me and my family very warmly, caring and professional way.

A very content family :)
