Reviews

9.9 Chatterbox Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.917)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Chatterbox Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chatterbox Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.917 for Chatterbox Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (132 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 Chatterbox Day Nursery is based on 12 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 8.6 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.

My children Quinten and Florence attend Chatterbox Day Nursery by the junior school. Chatterbox is the type of place any parent can feel confident that their children are put first, either for emotional needs, key skills or anything else the staff are always at hand to talk to about anything you need. My children have been going for many years and will keep going as the staff are fantastic, and my children love going.

My daughter attended Chatterbox Day Nursery from when she was 8 months old until she went to school. She absolutely loved her time there and I'm sure she would still go now if she could!! (Now age 6) staff were all very friendly and always made you feel very welcome, they made returning back to work for me an easy one as I knew my daughter was in the very best hands! I cannot recommend Chatterbox nursery enough!

When my son started at Chatterbox at the age of 2 and a half he didn't speak even one single word in English. All teachers were so very helpful and he adapted very quickly. He was really happy there and enjoyed it a lot. I have no words to exactly explain how grateful I am to all of the staff. Many many thanks to all of you !!!

Very friendly, children have a great time, both of my children use the day nursery at Ludlow Junior School site and look forward to it. Staff are very helpful and friendly at all times. The walking bus is a thumbs up from my son and it is very good for my daughter who attends Ludlow Junior School which means she doesn't need to walk far. Brilliant location in the best place.

I highly recommend this nursery, my oldest daughter attended there from 9 months to 4 years, she is now 10, and my youngest daughter has attended since she was 11 months. She is now 3 and loves it so much she attends full time.
The staff are wonderful, helpful and friendly and the variety of activities they do are brilliant.

My 3rd child has recently started at Chatterbox at 10 months old after my older 2 have both been cared for there.
I could not fault the care that all of my children have received there, it's a real little family environment. The kids have all loved it and it makes us as parents happy to know we are leaving our children in very capable hands where they are very happy.

I have been so happy with the care my daughter receives at Chatterbox. The staff are so friendly and lovely, my daughter loves going there and is very settled. She has a healthy homemade meal every day and I always get feedback to how she has eaten. She gets praise and rewards in a form of stickers and certificates which she thrives from.

I would highly recommend Chatterbox. Fantastic childcare. My child has been there since 9 months old and is now nearly 4. All of the staff have been so helpful, nothing is too much trouble, and they take any concerns I have, no matter how small seriously. I believe Chatterbox have really helped my son gain confidence in interacting socially, and also with his speech. From a learning aspect, he is doing so well, and I am very confident in his abilities for when he starts school.
They are very flexible in increasing or decreasing hours when necessary, and will always try to help out at short notice.
I can not praise Chatterbox highly enough.
