Reviews

9.3 Archfield House Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.332)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Archfield House 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Archfield House Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.842 for Archfield House Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 4.49 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Archfield House Nursery is based on 10 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 20.4 positive Reviews (102 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 20.4 Target = 0.490

  • 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 Archfield House Nursery

Archfield is a wonderful nursery where both of my children have been very happy. It's greatest asset is the amazing staff team who go out of their way to do everything they can for the children.

The staff clearly enjoy what they do which makes for a very nice environment for everyone.

They have pioneered beach school and have been taking the children on the train (which is an adventure in itself for them!) to the beach to explore.

The nursery staff are fantastic and my boy has particularly built up a great relationship with his key carer since he's been there. I feel like all staff really do treat all children as individuals and as such are really responsive to their specific needs. I have heard from friends about other nurseries who have specific nap times for example - something that would never work for my son! They are also great with specific dietary requirements. I feel like he's really well cared for and thriving at this nursery - he is always enjoying a hug with someone when I pick him up after work!

My son loves Archfield. The staff are so great and have been extremely helpful over the past couple of years. The activities are really varied and I love the fact they take them outside in all weathers. It feels like a lovely big family!

Our youngest son has been attending Archfield House for 3 years. The leadership, of both the whole nursery, and the individual rooms is excellent, and the staff are the kindest, most loving team. They work so hard to help the children have fun and exciting experiences while achieving their learning potential through play. I am constantly amazed by the range of activities that are provided; from Beach School (quite possibly the best nursery activity I have come across), Stretch and Grow, and Hunger Bugs, to the day to day play activities, such as the varied arts and craft activities and role play room. In the last few months alone, we have been to the Moon, hunting for dinosaurs and sailing the ocean on a pirate ship!
My son has often struggled with the daily transition of home to nursery, but with the care and attention shown by all the staff, he feels safe and secure and I feel confident that he is in a loving, kind and nurturing environment all day.

My children are 5 and 2, both have attended Fairlawn and we couldn't be happier.
The staff retention is fantastic, both my children have had the same room managers and key staff as they've gone through.
Everyone is very friendly and approachable but also really dedicated to the setting and care.
The outdoor space is absolutely brilliant and the children enjoy lots of activities - music bugs, mud kitchens, art and crafts, beach school....just to name just a few!
The have a dedicated chef, who all the kids love. They've also won Soil Association awards for the catering.
Huge praise for the staff!
Also the office staff, nothing is ever too much trouble.
Would highly recommend!!!

We are really glad that we chose Archfield House Nursery for our daughter. All the staff members are so friendly and they all know her name, it really does feel like we are part of one big family there. The communication with parents is fantastic and someone is always available to talk things through if necessary. The facilities are wonderful, with an amazing outside space which they use daily and she is a real fan of the food cooked by the onsite chef. They put on lots of extra activities throughout the year for all of us to take part in.

Great nursery. Very professional with lovely well-trained staff. Good facilities. Excellent freshly made food. Great ethos and atmosphere.
Good activities in the nursery and a good amount of outside time. Would be nice if they could go on a few more trips out of nursery but I appreciate this is a staffing issue.
Daughter very happy there and will be sending second daughter soon.

My eldest daughter has attended Archfield House Nursery for the past two years and has thrived during her time there. Her grandmother is amazed at her abilities and puts it down to her fantastic nursery!! The staff are incredibly loving, child centred and responsive, as well as being extremely creative and well versed in child development. They allow children the freedom to explore all areas of their interests whilst also putting in place clear boundaries and routines which help the children to feel safe and secure. My daughter eats all of the yummy food the chef presents, which is truly astonishing. We could have chosen a nursery which was closer to home and a little cheaper, but we believe that Archfield House Nursery is the best place for our children.

We came to the nursery in January having relocated from the countryside. What a relief to have found Archfield. Within a couple of visits, my daughter had settled in really well. The staff are caring, thoughtful and attentive. With excellent facilities as well as the already legendary 'Beach School'. I am only sorry that I didn't make it to Bristol and Archfield sooner.
