  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.806 for Flying Start @ Camborne is calculated as follows: ( (203 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 Flying Start @ Camborne is based on 9 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 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.

Flying Start @ Camborne is a highly recommended nursery. I have found the staff genuinely caring about the children in their care. I have found the environment nurturing and the forest school a fantastic alternative to staying at the nursery every day. My child is well cared for and kept safe at this nursery. I feel he has been well prepared for school.

The staff are always friendly and approachable, they seem to have good relationships with the parents as well as the children. My daughter has been going for nearly 18 months and loves it.
The staff were excellent when she first started and had mornings when she didn't want me to leave.
She has had trips to the woods and local town which she's really enjoyed. I can't recommend highly enough!

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. My two daughters attend Flying Start @ Camborne and their development has come on leaps and bounds. The staff seem to tailor the learning to the individual child, which really shows through in the girls' development.

My son has come to this Nursery from the age of 2. At the time, he was not talking and all the staff here were amazing with him with not only developing his speech but with social skills. I was also going through a tough time with having a second baby and all the staff have always been there for me. I cannot be grateful enough for this nursery and all they have done for us.

Both my boys enjoy visiting Flying Start as there is always a range of activities to do and delicious hot food and healthy snacks are provided every day!
The staff always give a warm welcome to the boys and make an effort to engage immediately with them.
Thank you, Flying Start!

Flying Start @ Camborne is a fantastic nursery, run by a team of friendly, dedicated staff. They facilitate a warm and welcoming atmosphere and my children enjoy attending.
They organise social events outside of nursery hours such as Easter Egg hunts, Christmas light trips, and keep parents updated with regular newsletters. They also organise special days out within nursery time, for example, they recently had a day out at Heartlands.
My children also report that the food is delicious!
I would highly recommend this nursery.

My 17-month-old son loves his sessions at nursery. Particularly out in the garden exploring. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and are so good with my little one that can be a little bit clingy! We are looking forward to him doing more sessions next year when he gets his funding.

Lovely friendly and welcoming staff. Excellent with the children. My daughter loved it at Flying Start Camborne and as protective parents we were happy to leave her in their very capable hands. A very positive experience for all of us. We felt like part a huge caring family. A few tears were shed when it was time to move on. I would definitely recommend you to others and have already. My daughter felt safe was safe and secure and certainly gained a lot thanks to all the great staff here. I highly recommend Flying Start Camborne. First class for all your child's needs.

I have used this nursery for all 3 of my children over a period of 16 years now, with my youngest still there and really would have been lost without them! All of the staff have been amazing and I don't think my children would be the individuals they are, without having had so much support from them! Staff are always friendly, polite and helpful and my children always love going. What more do you need?!

Flying Start @ Camborne has been a secure and loving place for my children. My eldest was there from 6 months old until he left for school and my youngest son is currently in their care. My newborn daughter will be following shortly. They have also spoken to me about my children's health and wellbeing with passion and commitment. They have developed both my sons to be the best they can be based on their own individual needs and learning styles. Both of my sons had/have enjoyed their time at Flying Start and have been surrounded by love, care, safety, development and ultimately an extended family. TRUST has been our key driver in selecting the manager and the team at Camborne to look after our children. We have a joint relationship on enriching and caring for my children, we have never worked in isolation, it has always been a team effort for ensuring the best quality of life for my children. I have always highly recommended Flying Start Camborne to other parents and will continue to do so.

My granddaughter loves going to Flying Start Camborne, she tells me everything she does there and about all her friends, she loves the staff and everything they do, she especially likes the big garden with its dens and story tree where she goes "exploring",
I can not fault the nursery, she wakes up every day wanting to go - even on the weekends

All of my children have attended Flying Start Nursery in Camborne.
The staff have always been friendly, approachable, supportive and caring, not only to the children but to parents as well. I am also impressed with the good standard of early years education, this gives the children a good foundation for progressing to preschool.
Many thanks to all the staff.

My son has been with Flying Start for nearly 3years and I haven't had a single worry or problem. Excellent friendly staff who all cooperate brilliantly together and with the parents.
My son is always coming home and telling me what he has done and how he has enjoyed his day. They always provide a lovely healthy meal and snack, they encourage storytelling and quiet time.
Lots of different toys and games to play with and the staff are always making the children learn different skills to prepare them for school.
I would recommend this nursery to everyone!!

My son has been attending Flying Start since he was 5 months old. I credit my son's ability to converse, interact and confident independence to the staff. He has grown in an environment that has taught him to drink from a cup and advanced his language skills. As an only child, he wouldn't have had the opportunity to develop as he has done without the dedication and support of the staff and I am indebted to Flying Start for all they have one.

I cannot speak highly enough of this nursery. My daughter has been attending since she was a baby and is now in preschool. Throughout each stage, she has developed extremely well thanks to the excellent staff providing support and encouragement every step of the way. We will be sad to leave in September!

The staff at Flying Start Camborne have been amazing at settling my 15 month old daughter. The baby room is small, homely and cosy and the baby room staff are so friendly, in fact all the staff there are lovely. I get great feedback and pictures that she has done each week.
