Reviews

9.8 St Paul's Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.802)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for St Paul's 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Paul's Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.802 for St Paul's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.802

  • 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 St Paul's Nursery is based on 13 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 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 11.6 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.

The keyworker and colleagues assigned to our child in the baby room have gone above and beyond to ensure she has settled in.
She has bonded with her keyworkers and the other wonderful staff at the nursery, thanks to a gentle and baby led settling in period, which started with a clingy upset 12-month-old to a happy playful and outgoing 13 month old. She is stimulated with play and outdoor activities, her meals are second to none, thanks to the freshly prepared menu.
I am very happy we chose St Paul's.

The nursery is very good, big and there is enough staff to look after all the children. My child loves attending nursery and is getting along well.

She is getting more creative and I am able to see my child developing, not just at nursery but also at home.

The nursery is really good and I am very pleased.

It was great hearing about my daughter from her teacher. And I really enjoy watching my child play and have fun. I think there should be a lot more of these sessions, where parents can spend time in the school/nursery with their child.

I find this nursery to be a well put together nursery. The teachers are warm, welcoming and always friendly and smiling. My son is really comfortable around the teachers, which makes me feel at ease. Especially because he's a clingy child. I honestly do recommend this nursery to other parents. I'm a very happy parent.

St Paul's Nursery is a high-quality nursery. My daughter has a specialised diet that the nursery has been able to adapt to and maintain. I am so grateful for the efforts made by the staff, particularly one who has shared her patience with my daughter and myself time after time. I want to say thank you to all and would recommend this nursery to anyone.

This nursery feels like a family! My son loves it and I love being able to leave him there and be absolutely confident that he is well looked after.
My daughter went there previously as well and despite being a bit more nervous character, she loved it and always remembers her time spent there.

Thank you for your kind words. We strive to ensure that Nursery is a positive and memorable experience for all our children.

Every member of staff do their job with such passion, couldn't ask for a better nursery to take care of my children.
If only we could take them all home with us.
If I could rate them it would be 100%

Thank you for your positive feedback about St Paul's Nursery. I will ensure that this is shared with the staff team.

The staff become family, my daughters loved it there! The support from all members of staff was outstanding. I really felt like it was more than just a care setting for my children. I was more upset about having to move my children to a childminder (due to a house move) than my daughter was. I will always recommend this nursery! I have not one bad thing to say.
