  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.736 for Cheeky Monkeys Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.736

  • 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 3.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cheeky Monkeys Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.167

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

Everyone at Cheeky Monkeys is professional, caring and excellent with our daughter. They provide interesting and fun activities which have developed our daughter into a confident and bright toddler. She has been at Cheeky Monkeys since she was 8 months old and loves all the staff and other children like one big happy family. She looks forward to going to nursery and always talks about what she's been doing and how they are all her friends. The nursery isn't that near to our house but I wouldn't hesitate to send any other children we have to Cheeky Monkeys as the outside areas are much better than the ones in town and the carers are all fantastic.

Natalie Oldknow, Manager at Cheeky Monkeys Nursery responded to this review on 28 Dec 2017:

Thank you very much. We appreciate your feedback and we will always provide the best start in life for the children in our care and continue to help them grow and develop throughout their journey with us.

My daughter has settled in great. The staff have been excellent and very understanding when my daughter struggled at first. She has gone from disliking going to wanting to go. There is always someone available to talk to. The nursery itself is clean, activities are always set out for a range of choices. I feel well informed about events, my daughter's progress overall. I will be sad when my daughter leaves next year. Well done to all the staff for their hard work on maintaining a fantastic environment for early years.

I would highly recommend this nursery, my little boy has been going here for the last year and really enjoys his time here. The staff are all lovely and all the staff get to know the children, so it's very friendly and inviting for the children. It has a lovely outdoor space too so the kids can play out lots.

Since my son started attending Cheeky Monkeys Nursery in 2015. He has come along very well with his speech and with going to the toilet. I am pleased and happy with leaving my son with the staff there as they are very kind and caring and they also inform me on what he does for the day, and what and how much food he eats.

Amazing staff, my little boy started at 6 months and with their support he's grown in to an independent, caring and adventurous toddler. The ladies at the nursery have become more like friends, than his day to day carers. He loves going to the nursery, learning new things and making new friends. I struggle to get him to leave. Keep up the good work!
