Oak House Nursery School has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.525)
The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Oak House Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oak House Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 5 for Oak House Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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:
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.
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.
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 1.525 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oak House Nursery School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.050 , then divided by 2 = 0.025
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I really can't begin to recommend Oak House highly enough. They hold the "Outstanding" OFSTED rating, and they absolutely deserve it. Both of my children loved their time at Oak House, and I was so sad when their time there came to an end. The team are professional, highly organised, caring and above all they are inclusive and collaborative with every parent and child. The 2 simple profiles which they use for feedback of development is all done online which makes it much easier to keep a track of your child's development, and this is reinforced with the development checks and feedback in their home diaries.
The structure they have in place for the varying ages of children is exceptional, and they get a diverse, interesting and exciting curriculum in beautiful and homely surroundings. The door is always open if you have any problems or if you need any support. They have excellent resources, everything from a smart board to softplay, forest school to an all weather outdoor play area. They publish a monthly menu so you can see what's for lunch at a glance and everything is cooked freshly. My Son was very fussy when he started at Oak House and wouldn't even try new foods; after only a couple of weeks, he was eating everything!
LOVE Oak House :-)
