Reviews

9.4 Foxcubs Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.367)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Foxcubs Day Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Foxcubs Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.867 for Foxcubs Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Foxcubs 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.500

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Both of my children attended this nursery and is a very well managed and friendly nursery. We had been to other nurseries prior due to location and nothing compares to Foxcubs Day Nursery. Staff are fabulous and so caring. Activities are well thought out and always something fun and interesting going on for the babies and children. Very clean and the food is good.
Will be very sorry to say goodbye when my youngest leaves. ***** star nursery

Foxcubs is a brilliant nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. There is a lovely homely vibe, the team make every effort to get to know your little one and go above and beyond in making them feel at home. Alongside this, Foxcubs is extremely professional and operates really well to a very high standard.
Our son loves his sessions and I am thrilled at the experience he has had here.

One of the things that attracted me to this nursery was its size, my little girl would not get lost in the numbers. The staff are so friendly and my little girl knows all of her room staff well. They take the time to get to know the kids, their personalities and how to help them grow into their own characters.
There were teething issues when my little one started nursery at 8 and a bit months, but nothing major (and probably due to my struggle of going back to work) and were dealt with professionalism and care.
My little girl is now taking the leap to the next room and is loving it!
A few more good things:
The food is great!
They spend a good amount of time outside even as babies -this is good for their mental and physical health and not all nurseries do this.
There are no funny looks when my little girl walks in in her dressing gown on a none dress up day just because she wants to, or brings her teddy in a peg basket - we aren't judged for our randomness.

Our son currently attends Foxcubs. We moved back from living abroad and so when he started it was very difficult. Our son initially was not keen to go to nursery but after a short while he became more settled and I think this was due to the hard work of the staff. I would say it took our son 2/3 months for him to fully settle but now he is flourishing and looks forward to his days at nursery. I have found the communication aspect very good and the staff at the nursery are trying very hard to build a community feel and go that extra mile.

I am always made to feel welcome when I drop off and collect, and when my son had a minor accident the staff rang and informed me what had happened and what they had done. I picked my son up due to the nature of the accident, his own fault 100%, but the staff rang later that day and a few days later to make sure he was OK which I think was above and beyond what is expected.

The back garden has recently been updated and is now fantastic.

I have three children and my third child is currently at Foxcubs. I have always had a great experience with the staff at Foxcubs, I love their friendly approachable attitudes and my girls have always been happy here. It'll be a very sad day for me and my girls when we say farewell to Foxcubs! Couldn't praise them anymore!
