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 4.866 for Serendipitys Day Nursery Grantham is calculated as follows: ( (189 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.866

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Serendipitys Day Nursery Grantham is based on 6 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.750

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

I would never send my daughter anywhere else. This nursery treats all of the children like their own, and they treat them all equally. When I drop my daughter off in the morning all the staff make you feel so welcome saying hello and engaging in a conversation to see how you are etc. When I pick her up she comes home so happy from the activities they have been doing and from the good food they cook as she always seems to eat it all.

We have just moved to Grantham and unfortunately still have to commute to London so the early starts work well for us. My daughter settled in so well within a few days. Now when I drop her off, she is so keen to go and play. The staff are lovely and there are always fun activities going on at nursery. I feel confident and happy leaving my daughter there for the day.

I could not recommend a more caring nursery than Serendipitys Day Nursery. The educators are well trained and professional. They pay close attention to each child's development and keep a daily record of all activities to give the parents a good understanding of their child's day. The children are kept occupied with an array of activities which stimulate their learning and progression. The nursery itself is warm and friendly and there is always a special learning event on. I am so grateful that my son has been so well looked after.

My daughter loves attending this nursery and am very happy with the care that she receives. She has fresh hot meals every day and has helped her to eat food she wouldn't eat at home. She always has lots to tell me at the end of her day about all the fun activities she does there. Staff always keep me up to date with everything she's done in the day and also future events I may need to know. Definitely recommend.

Serendipitys Day Nursery is absolutely amazing. My daughter started on the 4th July and needed time to get used to me dropping her off for the day, 3 days a week. The staff there are brilliant and very friendly and helped my daughter settle in. She has great days every time she goes there and has lots of fun playing with toys, exploring and interacting with other children. Everybody there is brilliant with her. I feel very happy to know, that she'll be taken care of so well while I'm at work. I'm so glad to have picked Serendipity for my daughter.

Brilliant nursery with fantastic staff. My son is completely happy here and enjoys all the many activities that he is encouraged to participate in. Caring, proactive and friendly staff ensure I have no concerns whatsoever when I drop him off in the morning or when I collect him in the evening.

In past 2 years my little angel has learned so much. Now it's almost time to say goodbye and join her new school but I can definitely say that she will miss Serendipity's nursery. Staff are amazing and they have been there for us. They took brilliant care of my little angel every time when she was there.
My daughter learned how to be more confident with herself and she's so much better with language. That's the biggest thank you to staff because they helped her with that. Each day step by step and it wasn't easy to start from nothing. Thank you for all you have done.

This nursery is great, staff very professional, I can really see how my son changed his behavior (in a good way) over last 5 months (since he started in January). I like that they learn through experience and every day, they have something exciting to do in the nursery!

What I like the most of this nursery is the dedication and love that all the staff members have not only towards the children, but also the parents and rest of the family. They always take a lot of time to tell you every detail of your child's day. I also love the possibility to pick him up from inside the room and being allowed to see exactly what he has been doing (and he also loves to show me the toys he is playing with, as well as his friends).
The nursery has started some very interesting new activities for children, like golf and French classes. My son is now singing songs in French to us! They have lots of toys and activity corners, which allows children to develop their imagination in many different ways. I would say that they also learned a lot about food with the variety of their menus.
I have a second child who will soon start going too. I love the baby's room and the sleeping area they have for them, but most importantly, I really like the staff who takes care of babies.

My daughter has been going to this nursery setting for 9 months and her development has been monitored and improved throughout that time.
The setting is like a home from home. The activities are messy which I love. The staff are professional, friendly and clearly care for my daughters well being.
I know my daughter enjoys going there as she gets excited and happy when we approach the front door. That's a recommendation enough for me.

Fantastic staff and a lovely, friendly atmosphere. My little boy has been in both the baby room and the preschoolers room and absolutely loves it. Lots of fun, educational activities (currently doing French lessons). Staff keep me up to date with his progress and what he has enjoyed each day. Would not hesitate to recommend this nursery.

Fantastic nursery, very enthusiastic about child's individual needs and circumstances. Very good with helping support parents with any queries and future situations e.g leaving for school are looked at and assessed in great detail for the child. Excellent safeguarding and a real family feel. Brilliant staff team!

My daughter loves Bambinos nursery. The staff is amazing and they make sure that I'm informed about everything. My daughter learned how to be more confident with herself, how to help others. Definitely the best place for my daughter. I am very happy with the progress my daughter has made at the nursery so far.
