Reviews

8.2 Early Doors Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.208)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Early Doors Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Early Doors Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 1 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 4.958 for Early Doors Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (69 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 3.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Early Doors Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 0.250

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

We could not fault this nursery, our little girl is so happy here and the food service they provide is fantastic and very healthy, our daughter comes home singing every Monday and tells us what songs she has learnt that day.
We would highly recommend this nursery, the staff are so good with our little girl and we are very happy that we found this nursery.

We love Early Doors! My daughter has attended since she was 12 months old, she is now 4 and due to start school in September we will both miss her going to this nursery as she has made lots of friends and has a fabulous time! The staff are all fantastic and you can tell how much the children love them. I have and will continue to recommend this nursery to friends with children.

Della Grizzell, Nursery Owner at Early Doors Day Nursery responded to this review on 11 May 2016:

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, we will all miss seeing you when your daughter starts school.

My daughter has been going to Early Doors for almost a year & I am very pleased to have seen her development flourish further due to all the interaction she has with all the other children and staff.
This nursery is great because the staff do let all the children interact & play with each other no matter the ages allowing the children to learn caring responsibilities from early on.
All the staff are fantastic with the children & it truly feels like a family environment. The feedback I receive from the staff is always encouraging & positive.
The rural setting of the nursery is idyllic & a very healthy environment with lots of fresh air.

My two boys have attended Early Doors since the age of 11 months and 9 months and both have absolutely loved the time they have spent there. My eldest is now just started school, he still misses Early Doors but he has gained some very close friends from when he was there. I have been extremely impressed with this nursery, the staff are extremely caring, considerate, approachable and friendly and I get fantastic feedback each day about my son’s day when I collect him. Being a small nursery I really feel the staff get to spend so much time with the children individually helping them with their development. I cannot fault this nursery in any way and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it. The farm setting is idyllic and the forest school is excellent. The children get to really experience country life hands on from seeing tiny lambs just born to growing their own vegetables - one of my boy’s first words was tractor, so that says it all. The confidence and development that my boys have shown whilst being here is incredible.

From my daughter's first day I felt this to be the perfect nursery for her. I love that there aren't too many children and feel all the staff are so attentive and caring. They accommodate my unusual hours and every time I pick her up I get a full report of her day. I had never left my daughter with anyone for more than a couple of hours before so a whole day was daunting. I was made to feel very at ease leaving her and within a few days could see she really enjoyed herself. All the children really seem to love the ladies who care for them and I can honestly say right now I couldn't be happier with Early Doors.

I send my two year old son here and have been for nearly 5 months, I love it and so does my son, the staff are friendly, mature and great at their job. They have a lot of outdoor activities which I like. It's in a rural area surrounded by nature, animals and fields etc. They also have a separate dining area where they have freshly made food cooked by the owner and they all eat as a family (another plus).

My son has improved tremendously since coming to this nursery and I thank all the staff for this. Highly recommended.
