Reviews

10 Jack In The Box (Bosbury) Ltd has a Review Score of 10 (9.986)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Jack In The Box (Bosbury) Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jack In The Box (Bosbury) Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.986 for Jack In The Box (Bosbury) Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (212 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 215 Ratings = 4.986

  • 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 Jack In The Box (Bosbury) Ltd is based on 9 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

An amazing nursery! All the staff are wonderful with children, they make learning so much fun and communicate fully with parents. The regular updates about the week and my son's progress are lovely to read and the photos are great! The huge variety of activities on offer makes JITBX (Jack In The Box Nursery) a fantastic experience - from Forest School to playing The ukulele to learning Spanish. My son runs in every morning and loves telling me all about his adventures at home. He's thriving and learning - he's having a fantastic time!

My daughters have been made so welcome at the nursery, the staff are fantastic and welcoming. The girls even ask to go at the weekends. We have noticed a big difference in our youngest daughters recognition of letters and numbers. They are so happy and we are very grateful.

Jack In The Box Nursery is fantastic. Staff are brilliant, facilities are brilliant and the range of activities are outstanding. My daughter came home the other day happily counting to 10 in Spanish! The children are very well looked after and it is clear that the staff really care and take pride in nurturing and teaching essential life skills and preparing the children for school. The communication is good with the weekly newsletter and tapestry and the termly parent consultations are very well received. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jack In The Box Nursery.

If I were to write down what I would wish for in a nursery for my children, Jack In The Box Nursery far exceeds this!

The welcoming, caring, fun and educational environment that Jack In The Box offers makes it a pleasure to drop my two children off twice a week.

This will be our 3rd continuous year for childcare with the team and we have not once had any disappointment. From little touches like book bags home to the wonderful productions put on throughout the year where dedication from the team is clear to see. Extra opportunities such as Spanish are just some of the extras that are packed into a wonderful day at Jack In The Box Nursery.

We always hoped we would be very happy with the nursery we chose but in all honesty, it is much better than that and there are moments when I wish it was me being dropped off for the day!

An excellent nursery with a lovely family atmosphere. All the staff really take the time to get to know the children and make sure they are settled and happy. Nothing is too much trouble.
My son always really looks forward to going.
I can't recommend this nursery highly enough.

To say Jack In The Box Nursery is above all others is an understatement. The nursery stimulates my son and I am staggered at how well his development has come on for 20 months of singing songs in fun ways, about senses and knowing Christmas carols, fun learning! Amazing Christmas show.

Communication so efficient, I love the 'tapestry' app and seeing photos of the day! All staff are really approachable, all children are beautifully behaved, learning great values and manners. The food is cooked on site, healthy and balanced like home. Love the pets and trips to farms. It is evident that everyone is passionate here and they love the children so I can go to work without worry.

Really clean, I wish I was 2 years old again! My eldest loves the after school/holiday clubs, especially as there are men leaders so he can do forest school and just be a boy! A huge thanks for exceeding my expectations!
(I never write reviews and usually find at least something to complain about when we eat out. My hubby just loves it...but cannot find fault or even a positive criticism to improve on, so if I think Jack In The Box Nursery is great then it is great!!)

My daughter is currently at Jack In The Box Nursery and my son will be attending in Sept 2017. I had no hesitation in choosing this nursery for my children - it was the one and only nursery that we viewed. The outdoor facilities are excellent, the staff are friendly and my daughter loves it there. I will be very sad the day my daughter leaves this excellent nursery.

Wow! Jack In The Box Nursery...I have nothing negative to say about this nursery. From the setting to the team, it is just fantastic. My daughter started in September just before her 3rd birthday and she absolutely loves going. They have a vast range of activities for the children along with plenty of outdoor play which for me was a huge positive. My daughters key worker is absolutely fantastic and they have a great bond, she is now a confident, independent little girl and I can only thank the team at Jack In The Box for that. We knew the minute we visited the nursery that it was right for us, it has a "home from home" feel to it with "happy vibes"
I get plenty of feedback each time I pick my daughter up which is more than reassuring and I love that the staff always have time to greet each child individually upon dropping them off.

Overall, it is a fantastic nursery and I can't praise them enough for all that they do :)

My husband and I are thrilled with our sons progress. I always feel that my son is very much treated as an individual and his personality is taken into account when they are communicating with him and when deciding on activity to engage him.

The staff communicate extremely well and keep us fully informed on my son. As a parent, it's great to see how much the staff care for the kids.

Amazing nursery with lovely staff. So glad I chose this nursery after moving to this area, it's in a perfect cosy setting, next to my daughters school (added bonus!) and there really isn't anything I can fault. When my daughter was going through a wobbly stage recently the staff comforted her, rather than made her feel silly for getting upset and I never left worrying as their gentle ways quickly got her through this stage. I'd recommend it to anyone :)

Fantastic nursery with first class learning and play provision. Staff are amazing and the level of service is second to none. I have a very happy daughter who loves going to nursery and I am very happy knowing that she is being given the best possible educational start in life. Thank you JITB.

My 3 year old son has attended Jack in the Box Nursery since September 2015. He is very happy and settled at the nursery and is comfortable with the 'ladies' (his name for the staff). He has enjoyed learning new skills such as forest school, 'jumping jacks', music, and cooking! The learning structure is well thought out and excellent at Jack in the Box, and they keep the parents well informed of your child's progress. As the nursery is small, the children do not get swallowed up and are given undivided attention. As a result my son's time spent at the nursery is shaped around his development and likes rather than generic play. I would recommend Jack in the Box whole-heartedly.

Jack in the box is a fantastic nursery! They have really helped my daughter develop her speech as well as learning lots from them. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time with them. The staff are very polite friendly. I will also be sending my youngest daughter in September and looking forward to it. Jack in the box has so much to offer for your child.

Jack-in-the-Box is the best nursery in Britain, not just the area, and I know how lucky I am to be able to use it. That may sound like an overstatement but my child attended two nurseries before this one (due to relocations) and Jack-in-the-Box stands head and shoulders above any other facility; it is truly fantastic. I have talked to other parents from all over the UK about their nursery facilities and they are always astounded by what JITBX provide.

They give the children an amazing education (including numbers/phonics, Spanish, music/dance and cooking), theme each term, get the parents involved and provide them with interesting activities on a daily basis, and all this is done with a great deal of love, laughter and affection. They are totally brilliant at getting the children to listen, concentrate and understand right from wrong - but with kindness and understanding. The staff are inventive, caring, fun and adore the children almost as much as the parents do.

The staff are happy to work very closely with the parents if required, helping to work through the myriad of behavioural issues that toddlers throw up; they are always happy to work to a parent's plan or to help out with advice and the benefit of their experience when required or asked for. They are also unparalleled at communicating to the parents how their children are doing either with progress books, via Tapestry or just through conversation or 1:1 meetings.

They work incredibly hard to provide an outstanding facility and I honestly couldn't praise them highly enough. I have recommended them to several other parents, and will continue to do so. They deserve to be the top nursery in the UK in my eyes!

There is no doubt that JITB has the 'child' at the centre of their planning and preparation for every activity they do. My daughter was at JITB for a year and made excellent progress in every aspect of her development. She was cared for, loved and had great fun performing, taking part and most importantly gaining the foundations ready for her school life. The staff were thoughtful, and very approachable. They communicated well with emails, letters and personally at the door. I look forward to sending my son to JITB in the new academic year of 2016.

Our daughter, nearly two, has just returned for her second term at Jack In The Box. She loves it, she gets so excited when she spots her uniform and bag and knows she is off to the Manager and the team for another day of fun. Her confidence has come on in leaps and bounds as well as her social skills. The team have always supported us and even though due to work granny does most of the drop offs I am also kept in the loop and up to speed with her experiences and days. I could not have hoped for a kinder, safer and exciting environment for my little girl to spend her time.

My experience was supportive, patient, approachable and empathic. My son was very well prepared for school due to the thorough transition established by jitbx. Thank you, my youngest is already booked in for Easter 2017.

My son has been going to Jack in the Box since September and he loves it. The staff are very friendly and work wonders with the children. They have spent a lot of time helping him settle in and also any problems are bought up very quickly and sorted. I would recommend this nursery to everyone and have already booked my 9 month old in.
