Reviews

9.9 Flying Start Nursery @ Penryn has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.909)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Flying Start Nursery @ Penryn 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Flying Start Nursery @ Penryn in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.909 for Flying Start Nursery @ Penryn is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.909

  • 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 Nursery @ Penryn 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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.

My little boy has recently started at the nursery and is beginning to settle in really well. The nursery and their staff are very accommodating and strive to meet the needs of my 9-month-old child that is doing between 3 and 4 long days.

The baby room is a lovely environment with its own sleep room and sensory room that my little boy loves to explore. In the short amount of time that he has been at the nursery, he has already started to build a really good relationship with his key worker.

My 10-month-old has started at this nursery and does a 4-hour session 5 times a week. She had a brilliant settling in period and a lot of time and care was taken to make sure both myself and my child were made comfortable throughout this period.

She has an amazing keyworker who I feel individually caters to my little girl's needs and it’s so obvious to see my child adores her. The baby room is fully equipped with its own sensory/light room, sleep room and kitchen.

The nursery accommodates all her dietary needs and nap timings. The management team are readily available whenever I have any queries. I am glad I decided to put her into this nursery after viewing 7 other.

A lovely welcoming nursery with easy access and plenty of parking. My 18 month old had to restart at 15 months as her last nursery was closed down and Flying Start was amazing with her transition, my little one sometimes cries when we arrive as she is quite attached to me (Mum) but once I have left I know that she is full of life and has the best time! The food is great-probably better than she eats at home! An all-round fab nursery.

Our son quickly settled into Flying Start after our old nursery suddenly closed. We found the manager very accommodating to the situation we found ourselves in, and the staff welcoming. We soon realised that our son was progressing much better at Flying Start; his words came on quickly, he was learning to cook and dance. He enjoys going to nursery (most days!) so this is the important thing to us.

Flying Start have a great outdoor space and activities vary to keep the children entertained. "Beach school" is one of my sons favourite! Communication is great between staff and parents. The staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful nursery! Brilliant staff. Lovely space and atmosphere. My 2-year-old has been there full time since September and absolutely loves it. He has learnt a lot and has the opportunity to play with a brilliant range of activities. My whole family love following his progress through the photo observations and comments sent through on the Ey log app. Would highly recommend this nursery!

My child absolutely loves going to nursery and holds his arms out to go to the staff. All the staff are lovely, caring and very professional. They have been flexible and accommodating.
I love the app that is used to communicate with me so I can see his progress when I’m at work. They do lots of activities and support my child’s independence and learning. I highly recommend Flying Start at Penryn.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 9 months old and she is now 2.5 years old.

From the start, the staff have made my daughter feel very welcome and have been very encouraging of her development. The staff really get to know your child and the parents which is really lovely. I really enjoy being able to get updates on an app showing photos and development progress that my daughter goes through whilst at the nursery.

The facilities are great and I know my daughter gets a healthy lunch when she is there. Overall I would highly recommend this nursery the staff are amazing and friendly and my daughter is very happy there.

My son has been attending 2 days a week for 8 months. He loves it here, the staff are so caring and friendly. They nurture his very inquisitive mind. Since being at the nursery he has learnt so much. The staff make sure the children do a variety of activities each day, there is regular messy play and cooking and trips out to local areas for walks, and trips to the local soft play centre.
The online EY log used is great for communicating what they are doing at nursery and we especially like how you can update with what we have done at home.

The nursery do their best to accommodate our child care needs, being flexible between term time and holidays and helping with emergency care when able.

This is a brilliant nursery. My daughters love it here and are making a lot of friends and having so much fun! They're usually worn out by the time comes to go home.

They learn a lot and are always singing new songs at home which they have learnt at nursery. There are lots of trips into the local area which they go on.

All the toddler room staff have accommodated my son extremely well. He is being reviewed to see if he required extra help and assistance with learning and they have done everything asked of them and more. They have put up with people coming in to watch my son. The staff couldn't be nicer here!
