8.6 The Crescent Pre School Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.647)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for The Crescent Pre School Nursery Ltd 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Crescent Pre School Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.913 for The Crescent Pre School Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (251 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 275 Ratings = 4.913

  • 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 3.734 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Crescent Pre School Nursery Ltd is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.234

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

The Crescent is an outstanding nursery. My little boy loves attending and his confidence has increased through attending. The staff are always very friendly and I feel that they know my child very well.
Definitely, the best nursery and my little girl will also start attending shortly because of their excellence.

Very happy with the level of education and care my child receives here. Was nervous about sending her as she seemed too little (July baby) but she loves it. Staff are very friendly and caring.
It does sometimes feel a little short staffed as there is often nobody to speak to at pick up time. A few items of clothing have gone missing during changes or random sock removal incidents by my child, but nothing major.
It was the outside which attracted me the most as our daughter loves being outdoors and their facilities are excellent.
I'd say all staff members are familiar with all the children and feel I can speak to any of them if I do have a concern or question.

I was nervous about sending my son to nursery full time as I went back into work but the staff here are amazing and the way how they are and how the nursery is run and the opportunity that the children who attend have each day just completely put my mind at rest. My son who is two looks forward to his adventure at nursery each day and I can't praise this nursery and the staff enough. Highly recommended to all parents.

My 2yr old grandson started nursery for one morning a week at the beginning of Oct. As you can imagine, I was feeling very protective and concerned that he should be well cared for and also happy . The nursery manager ensured that he was matched to the ideal child care assistant to suit his gentle and reserved nature and that he had a well-planned induction over a number of weeks to be sure he settled before I committed him to a full half day with lunch.
There is a wide range of play activities both inside and outside to suit his interests and he loves the lunches. My grandson is settling in well and I have peace of mind that he is happy, well cared and having quality play time with new friends.

My Son has recently started at The Crescent Pre-School Nursery and attends one morning a week in the Discovery Room. I would like to say what a positive experience he has had so far. The settling in procedure and one to one he was given during this time by his key person has been brilliant my child has been really nurtured. The staff are really caring and you can tell there is high-quality care provided throughout the day as my child is happy to attend each week. His key person is also very approachable and listens to my son's needs and provides activities to his interests from home. I have booked my child to do more sessions for the January as he is really benefiting from the interaction with other children and the wide range of experiences the nursery has to offer.

From day one of my little boy coming to this nursery he has had a very enjoyable experience. The staff are absolutely fantastic, they have really brought my little boys confidence on. His development from starting a year and a half ago is absolutely fantastic. I've always felt listened to and supported. If there's ever been any issues at home, the staff have always been there not only for my little boy but for me as well. The outdoor area is massive and they are able to learn out there, which has been brilliant for my little boy as that's how he learns best.
Overall I would 100% recommend The Crescent to every parent as it's a brilliant nursery.
The staff genuinely care for each child and what I like is that although each child has their key worker, the other staff really care for them too.

I cannot praise the pre-school enough, the staff are brilliant and from day one I feel both myself and my child were always listened to. A big thing for me was my child's well being and as she hadn't been to any other setting before I was worried about leaving her upset, the staff were amazing reassuring me and my child, she settled very quickly and has a good relationship with all the staff, planning activities around my child's interests lots of messy play which my child loves, she now has her own friends and always tells me about her day and all the activities she has been doing.
The outdoor area is fantastic my little girl loves to be outdoors and they have lots of free play where the doors stay open my daughter spends a lot of time in the large outdoor sand pit which they have. All the staff are very approachable and friendly and I'm so glad I made the decision to send her there, I feel she will be more prepared for school in September because of her time here.

Both my daughter and my son have attended this nursery and I have nothing but praise for it. The staff are all amazing and care about the children in their care. I have never had any issues at all and both of my children have developed so much both emotionally and in their physical ability since being there. The key workers listen to both the children and parents and tailor their care accordingly, even working with the children to ensure they are ready to start school. Great facilities, fantastic outside area for the children to spend time and lots of opportunity to learn through play.

Really fabulous nursery, my little girl really enjoyed going to Crescent Pre School. All the staff are friendly, great with the children and work well with parents to promote the child's well being, both emotionally and educationally. My child gained confidence before starting full time education, it really is useful that it links to Crescent Nursery School and really helped her settle quickly into a nursery setting. The staff are always welcoming of new ideas and take on board parents views. I can't praise the pre school enough for making my little girl the happy, confident little lady she is today, great start to any child's future, really recommend.
