Reviews

9 Oak House Nursery has a Review Score of 9 (9.007)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Oak House 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oak House Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.813 for Oak House Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 4.194 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oak House Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.444

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

My nearly 7-year-old girl has been coming to this nursery since she was 3, she uses holiday club in term time, she struggled at first but the staff were very supporting, caring and wonderful, her confidence has grown so much since being at nursery and now am looking forward to my 4-month-old baby girl starting in September. I highly recommend this nursery, they are more like a family to me rather than a nursery.

My youngest son started at Oak House Nursery in June 2017. I chose this nursery as my eldest son went there and absolutely loved it, he is now 8 years old. Both boys settled so quickly and extremely well. The environment is so friendly and is just like a family home. One selling point to my husband and I was the lovely out door space and seeing the children having so much fun with all the activities available to them.
The manager and staff are so friendly and professional, I can already see my youngest son developing new skills and interacting with other children so well since starting at the nursery. The other positive thing for myself is seeing the staff who looked after my eldest son still working at the nursery.
I know my son is going to learn and have so much fun at Oak House Nursery, just as his brother did. I would certainly recommend Oak House Nursery.

Both my children have been to this nursery. the staff are lovely and always helpful. My children love going to nursery and have always happy stories to tell me about their day. Both of my children started at 8-9 months and the transition was made very easy as I was always reassured by the staff.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 9 months old. He starts school this September and can already write his name, recognise numbers and letters and he is extremely happy and confident. The staff are excellent, very well trained, caring, friendly and always helpful. The setting is lovely as it's like home from home. The owner and management are a mother and daughter team who are fantastic, friendly and approachable with anything you want to know. Outstanding nursery!
