Reviews

8.6 Staffordshire University Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.573)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Staffordshire University Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Staffordshire University Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 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 4.8 for Staffordshire University Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.8

  • 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 3.773 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Staffordshire University Day Nursery 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.273

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

Reviewer Connection to Staffordshire University Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    10

After working in several nurseries myself and not liking what I saw, it was incredibly hard to trust any nursery with my own children as I thought all nurseries operated the same way.
Almost 2 years later and all three of my children have been to Staffordshire University Day Nursery and I absolutely love it. My children have the best time with the wide range of activities available. The children also eat so well whilst being there, I actually get jealous.
The staff are just amazing and I cannot big them up enough. I do feel like they are my extended family and love them all dearly.
The office door is always open if you ever need a chat.
When I pick the children up I always get updated with what my boys have done that day, what they ate and how much they ate.
I would never send my boys anywhere else now and I'll be totally gutted when the day comes to my youngest to move up to reception class.

Bex thank you for your lovely comments and the time you have taken to complete a review. Your boys are a credit to you and we thoroughly enjoy caring and educating them and supporting you in ensuring they are ready for their next step ......... Big School !

My daughter has been attending this nursery for almost 4 years and she has had an absolutely fantastic experience, as have I.
The staff are so kind, caring and knowledgeable and provide excellent activities for the children. My Daughter is so confident, funny, and kind which I know is mainly due to the social experiences she has had at the nursery.
She has impeccable manners and thought for others, and is so full of fun. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this nursery for all children aged 0-5 years. My Daughter will be starting School in September 2017 and I will be so sad on her last day at the nursery.
I feel like the staff are my friends and I will be very sad to no longer have them in my life. Such a wonderful place.

Thank you for your great feedback; it is really appreciated and helps to support the development of the service we deliver. We will continue to enhance our ICT and outdoor resources to enhance your child's learning experience. We have thoroughly enjoyed caring for your Daughter and you will both be missed very much when your child starts school in September.

My son has been at the nursery since moving from one in Stafford over the summer - Every day he's happy to go into the nursery, this is his place having moved through 2 rooms now. I've seen his language and development come on in leaps and bounds and I know he spends every day being loved, entertained and cared for.

Nia thank you for your lovely feedback it is really helpful and appreciated. We love having the privilege to care and educate your son each day. This year we are focusing on further improvements to outdoor and ICT resources.

The nursery have been amazing. I could not have left my son in safer kinder hands. As hard as it is to leave your child and go to work I've felt they given him the care and attention he would have got at home, which has been so important to me.
He has loved going there and has gained some amazing relationships both with other children and the staff.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the nursery. The staff are really helpful, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I feel completely at ease leaving my little girl there. The facilities are great and it is such a lovely atmosphere that my daughter complains when she has to leave. Always a good sign.

All staff including management at the nursery are very welcoming and you feel at ease that your child is being looked after well. My daughter enjoys attending the nursery and has made many friends and the environment gave her a great opportunity for learning as well as developing emotionally, physically and socially. I have appreciated the regular feedback from staff on progress and feel at ease that my child will be fine once she starts school!

My daughter has been at there for over 2 years. All the staff are fantastic with the children & extremely supportive & will help you anyway they can. I had personal family problems and they were fantastic in helping me or just there for a natter. My daughter has made some wonderful friends & has been to so many parties because of the friends she has made. The children became very close & I will be very sad to see her leave.

An excellent safe, fun & educational nursery who keep you up to date of your child's progress, which they send to the school of choice to inform the teachers of each child which I think is brilliant.
I am deeply upset she has to leave & will miss all the staff & children immensely.
COULD NOT RECOMMEND A BETTER NURSERY .

An excellent place where my daughter thoroughly enjoyed going. The facilities were excellent and the opportunities given to my daughter far surpassed my expectations. The staff were friendly and kept detailed track of any progress my child made and kept me totally informed at all times. Overall my experience of the nursery over the 4 years was nothing but excellent. I can not fault them and my daughter really misses the whole experience.

My son has been going to Staffs Uni nursery for around 18 months and he loves it. He has special needs and the support and care he has been shown by his key worker, fellow carers and their supervision has been excellent. He is a confident and happy little boy there and is making leaps and bounds in his development.
I am also impressed with how accommodating and enthusiastic the management team have been in facilitating my sons key worker to attend his Physio and speech and language sessions at the hospital in order for them to gain a better understanding of his needs.

The nursery along with being safe and secure has excellent facilities both inside and out for all ages, with lots of different things to do each day. All range of activities are planned in to a brilliant routine, which I feel will be extremely beneficial when moving on to school. The care from the staff is exceptional, and I have always felt reassured and happy that my daughter is in such a positive place with love and support in her developments. I couldn't praise them enough, they have been fantastic. Food and nutrition provided is healthy and well balanced. When starting nursery my daughter was extremely fussy, now she is an excellent eater that enjoys almost anything and willing to try new things. I would 100% recommend this nursery from the care my daughter receives along with how much she has progressed over the time she has been there.
