Reviews

9 Munchkins Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9 (8.984)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Munchkins Day 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Munchkins Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 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 4.817 for Munchkins Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.817

  • 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 4.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Munchkins Day Nursery is based on 5 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 30 positive Reviews (150 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 30 Target = 0.167

  • 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 Munchkins Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

Our daughter joined Munchkins when we moved to Exeter from London and has blossomed into a curious, clever, kind and happy little girl. The staff at Munchkins warmly welcomed all of us and truly cared for us as a family. They encouraged and enabled our daughter to learn, take risks and develop from a rather timid baby into a precocious toddler. The room leader and her colleagues consistently worked with us as a team, providing continuity between home and nursery - both spaces were full of love, kindness, freedom, joy and creativity. We have many wonderful memories of our daughter's time at Munchkins, captured through artwork, Tapestry posts, and numerous 'home books' - but the most convincing and precious evidence is our daughter herself. Munchkins has helped her to become bold and empathetic, curious and caring, a prolific artist (paint! shaving foam! glitter! markers! chalk!) and still a bookworm, tremendously clever and beautiful in every way. This is a truly special team!

My youngest daughter loves Munchkins just as much as her sister (who went for three years) did. We have always found the staff to be so caring and the environment they create is relaxed but stimulating and playful. I love that I get regular Internet updates of progress as well as a daily record of her routine. The office staff are always prompt with responding to any email or phone queries which is so necessary when you are a working parent.

A brilliant nursery. The team are, in my opinion, exceptional. Both of our girls have gone here and had excellent experiences. The staff are just so committed, enthusiastic and seem to genuinely love their jobs.
This has been our experience all the way through from babies to pre-school. My youngest has additional needs and the nursery has responded brilliantly to this. They have been completely engaged and have liaised with various professionals to ensure that our daughter has the best possible support while in the setting.

The standard of care is very high, staff are happy and very attentive to parents when they come to collect their children, giving them lots of information about their day. My children are always very happy when they go and leave and look forward to their day. My daughter has food intolorences and Munckins has always been very understanding, communicative and helpful.

My son started at Munchkins at the age of 6 months, he is now 17 months and has become a very confident and well rounded little boy. The staff are amazing, they always take the time to tell me about his day and have such enthusiasm for what they do. My son never has a problem being dropped off in the mornings, in fact, he doesn't normally give me a backwards glance as he can't wait to get in there and have lots of fun! I also love that they have NurseryCam so I can see what he's up to and it gives me great peace of mind and reassurance. I would highly recommend and encourage all parents to send their children to Munchkins, it really is the best nursery in Exeter!
