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 4.808 for Fun Farm Day Nursery Lincoln is calculated as follows: ( (127 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.808

  • 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 4.618 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fun Farm Day Nursery Lincoln is based on 11 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 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.618

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

9.4 Fun Farm Day Nursery Lincoln has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.426)

My child absolutely loves going to Nursery at Fun Farm and she settled in so quickly. The staff are always super friendly, happy and informative. They get to know the children so well and the atmosphere is so relaxed and welcoming. They get up to so many activities each day and I still feel like I've been involved in what she’s been up to which is just lovely.

I can’t fault this nursery or the staff. They are all brilliant at their jobs and treat the kids like their own. The confidence in my children since starting has been fab and they are learning so much.
Thank you for all you do for them, I will be sad when they both leave for school!

My two boys now 5 and 6, have been going to Fun Farm Nursery/Afterschool Club since 2014. Both boys flourished at nursery and we were always well informed by the staff of their progress. They prepared the boys for their start of primary school which made the transition so easy. They're still at Fun Farm after school club which they thoroughly enjoy. They currently also attend holiday club and they do different things every day. They food they get is very nutritious and the boys enjoy it.

Our son absolutely loves Fun Farm. He settled really quickly. The staff have been excellent in looking after and developing him and keeping us informed of his progress. They try to do the creativity activities everytime which is quite great. They are so flexible with the hours. Whenever I desperately need to change the hours or swap the days or extend the hours if I'm running late they do it straight away.

Both of my children attend Fun Farm Day Nursery in Lincoln. My little girl had been with them since the baby room and is now in pre school. She loves going to nursery and enjoys all of the activities on offer. All of the staff are fantastic and really work with parents to ensure children are happy, learning lots but most importantly having fun!

My little boy has been at Lincoln Fun Farm Day Nursery since he was 9 months old and he loves it.
They record all the key moments he has achieved through photos and a diary so we get to see what things he has been up to.
The staff are all so friendly and welcoming in all the different rooms he has gone through.
We would recommend Fun Farm Nursery to anyone.

Our son absolutely loves Fun Farm. He settled really quickly despite only going once a week. The staff have been excellent in looking after and developing him and keeping us informed of his progress. His book is a great log of all he has done and demonstrates the creativity and breadth of activities which the staff offer each day.
