  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Field House Day Nursery & Pre-school 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.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.647 for Field House Day Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (89 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.647

  • 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 Field House Day Nursery & Pre-school 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 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 daughter has settled in really well at nursery and this is largely due to the kind and helpful staff at Field House. The nursery is small but has everything needed to keep children entertained. My daughter seems happy there as do the other children I’ve seen at the nursery. The food provided is a good quality and they do a wide range of activities, even for the much younger children. Overall we are very happy with the nursery so far.

My daughter started in September 2017 and so far we have been very pleased with our experience.

When my daughter was a bit fractious settling in, staff made extra efforts to provide activities she showed interest in - for example, they made up a sensory toy farm because she particularly liked the farm animals.

Staff were good at providing comfort to my daughter when she was upset initially settling in. Staff always cuddled her and seemed to know good ways to calm her down.

The only downside thus far has been a lot of changes in staffing. However, management and long-term staff seem to have given thorough handovers to newer staff. I have never felt as if I was leaving my daughter with people who didn’t understand her individual needs. I feel the smaller setting allows a more personal service as even with the staff changes I still know everyone’s name!

My daughter is always happy being dropped off to nursery and is happy (and exhausted!) on collection. I’d recommend this nursery.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say that Field House Day Nursery & Pre-school was the right choice for our son, he has had an amazing time at nursery – the setting has improved over the years thanks to the current staff and management.
 
I wish the setting luck and do hope that the numbers increase as it is an exceptionally well-managed nursery. The quality of the informal learning is excellent, and I have no worries in regards to our son being school ready.
 
Thank you for the offer for us to return for a visit, we will certainly take the nursery up on the offer at some point between September and Christmas.
 
The parent forums were extremely useful, and the ethos of looking after the children with the support of the family was perfect for the period of time from baby to pre-schooler.
 
Thank you, Field House Day Nursery & Pre-school, for all you have done, for all the support, and for preparing our baby for school.
We will miss you all!

My son has been at this nursery for 2 years now. It's always been a friendly place for him to come. All the staff move rooms, therefore everyone knows each other. The food is and they always try to mix things to make it fun for the children.

Our son started Field House in September 2016. He found it hard to settle initially and was always upset in the mornings; however the staff in the baby room have been caring, friendly, and encouraging, and he now loves it. They always seem to know the children well as individuals and provide activities which they know will interest them.

One of the reasons we chose this nursery was the big outside space they have, as our son loves being outdoors. They take them outside, rain or shine, and our son has great fun with the tractors, mud kitchen and playing football.

Our son has really developed his skills and confidence since starting and we feel happy and confident leaving him in their care.

My son is visiting this nursery from the age of 9 months. He seems very happy there and settled in really quickly. Staff members are super friendly. Babies do a lot of messy play and sensory activities, which is fabulous.

Our child started at Field House Nursery in January 2017 and we are both pleased with the decision we made to send him to this nursery. There were a number of settling in sessions available to us both to ease the transition to attending nursery. We are pleased with the level of care, particularly from his key worker, but all the staff are kind and caring towards our child. They all know his name and greet him on a daily basis despite not directly looking after him. We feel confident in the care he is getting and have seen him develop in skills and confidence in just the 5 months he has been attending. We like the smaller more intimate setting of the nursery and all of the staff and management are approachable and reactive to any comments, feedback or concerns. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone looking to find a nursery in the Kenilworth area.

Field House is a lovely little nursery with kind and caring staff, great facilities and a lovely outdoor area. The staff continually go above and beyond to provide a great environment for children to learn and play whilst feeling safe and well cared for. Extra activities such as football classes, add extra interest and staff work hard to create extra opportunities such as a party for all the children and a tea party and crown making for the Queen's birthday. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to any parent looking for quality childcare.

My child has been at Field House Day Nursery since Jan 16 following a move from the previous nursery. She has been made to feel very welcome and has settled really well. The staff are friendly and very approachable. She is very positive about the staff who looked after her. There is a wide variety of meals/snacks which seem to be enjoyed. On the whole, it's a great place for the kids to be.

My son loves going to nursery and even when he's having a grumpy day the team always manage to cheer him up. We've just received our first end of term report and it is so nice to know that the staff there really know him. It gives me confidence as a mother to leave him in their care.
Improvements that have been done at this nursery will surely pay dividence as it is such a lovely environment for children to play and learn in.

Since new management there has been loads of investment, all new toys , far more 'imagination' toys such as wood bricks and tubes and wheels in the preschool area for my son. He loves it there and comes home with all sorts of stories! We have loads of communication from the staff which makes me feel glad they are open and I feel included.

My daughter, age 3, always looks forward to going to nursery. She has made lots of friends and enjoys a wide variety of activities including dance lessons, baking, stories, singing an painting. The setting is friendly and welcoming and the staff are caring and nurturing towards the children. There is a lovely outside space offering lots of room to run around, play on the swing and slide and there are lovely natural places to hide and play 'dens'. I am very happy with Field House Nursery and would recommend it to any parents with young children.

Hello,

I’m Kim Rea and I’m the Nursery Manager at Field House I started my career with Tommies Childcare in June 2015.

I’ve been working within the childcare sector for 12 years, where I started as an Apprentice and was able to work my way up. I have been part of an ‘Outstanding’ nursery setting and understand what is needed to achieve great childcare and early years education. I really enjoy working at with children and nurturing and encouraging them to be the best they can be. I believe that children can do so much better if they have a positive early years experience to ensure that they start school with the skills needed to achieve all they can.

Early years exploration and play is set out wonderfully here at Field House. Children become independent learners, gaining new skills and friendships. Heuristic play is available throughout the nursery and is a key element in engaging the children to discover and investigate.

I believe that when you walk in the door, you will feel the warmth and nurture from the staff, which is what makes our nursery special.

Please do arrange to come and see the nursery. We’ll be happy to show you around.
