The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for The Co-operative Childcare Walsall Wood Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Co-operative Childcare Walsall Wood Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.722 for The Co-operative Childcare Walsall Wood Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (209 Excellents x 5) + (78 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 The Co-operative Childcare Walsall Wood Nursery is based on 14 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). 14 Reviews ÷ 10 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 son started attending the nursery last month. He has difficulty settling in but all the staff are very supportive. He is very well looked after and is learning and developing each day. My son's key worker is amazing with him.

My child has been attending Walsall Wood nursery for a couple of years now and he has come on leaps and bounds during this time. I have peace of mind when he's there knowing he's in safe hands, he always enjoys his time at nursery and keen to tell me what he's achieved. He highly regards his nursery carer and I'm over the moon with the way she's developed my son and couldn't ask for more.

Excellent nursery and staff.

The range of food available is very good and has increased my daughter's appetite and is no longer a fussy eater!
The staff are brilliant and are always there to help.

Excellent nursery which provides first class care and learning for our son. The staff provide a safe and nurturing environment with varied activities and learning experiences which my son loves and has thrived upon. I have already recommended this nursery to 2 of my friends, both of which have now placed their children in the nursery and agree the care is first class!
We are so impressed with the standard of teaching at the nursery we have decided to leave our son in the nursery preschool rather than send him to a school preschool.

This is a good nursery, most of the staff seem very caring and we get regular reports on how my child is doing. Some of the staff can be difficult to deal with but on the whole good value for money. I would just like to see more of what they do whilst there i.e. pictures etc.

A very professionally ran nursery. Great facilities with different rooms as your child grows from baby to preschool. The staff are very friendly and it's great to have the structure that the Co-op brings. My child has been there since 9 months old, now preschool age, he has always been very happy and that speaks volumes.

Our little girl loves nursery, we never have any issues with drop off in a morning and she tells us all about her day at tea time. We have seen a real improvement with her development and the daily feedback we get from the staff shows she is well looked after and the staff are really getting to know her. Parents evenings are great and give us a good opportunity to discuss ours and our child's needs and how we can work together to develop them. We have even decided not to move into stare nursery at three as we feel our child is in the best place.

My daughter has been at Early Birds for nearly two years. Though she has been extremely nervous, shy and insecure. She is cared fro extremely well. Her key workers are very patient and her confidence has blossomed. We have no hesitation in sending her to Early Birds and would recommend it to others.

After looking at many local nurseries we personally found that the Co Op offers excellent facilities, care, meals and value for money.
The staff are always welcoming and made us feel that our daughter was their utmost priority.
Our daughter has always enjoyed her sessions at the Co Op and this gives us great reassurance.
