  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.708 for Harpole Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (450 Excellents x 5) + (137 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 607 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 Harpole Day Nursery is based on 24 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 6.8 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.

9.7 Harpole Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.708) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.7 out of 5 from 51 Reviews over all time

Harpole Day Nursery has been excellent right from the start of our experience. Our daughter seems really comfortable in the surroundings right from the setting in sessions. The staff are all friendly and helpful and our daughter has especially bonded with her key worker.

The facilities always look clean and cared for and the menu is extensive and varied.

Overall, we are extremely satisfied with Harpole Day Nursery and would highly recommend.

Both our little ones have now gone to Harpole Day Nursery and we love the setting and the great care they provide. The carers make it a real home from home.

The outdoor time is great and the home cooked fresh food is always eaten and loved by both our little ones. Always getting good/bad feedback regarding them which means there are lots to work on.

My little girl loves Harpole Day Nursery. Each morning when I drop her off, she runs off excited to meet her friends. Her counting and colours for a two-year-old are fantastic thanks to the games they play. The food is also great. She eats seconds every day!

Harpole Day Nursery has done a fantastic job at preparing my 4-year-old for school. My daughter had a good interest in books and learning to count and Harpole Day Nursery have encouraged this. She can now spell basic words like dog and cat so she is more than prepared for school so we're very pleased. She loves the teachers here! She eats much more here than at home which is down to the quality of cooking and eating with others. We would highly recommend Harpole Day Nursery.

The staff are always friendly and give a detailed account of the day's activities. Food is served by the child (age appropriate) which our daughter loves and allows her to choose what she likes. Our daughter loves the secret garden and is always covered in the evidence.

Harpole Day Nursery is a lovely nursery, our son has been coming since he was 9 months and now is 2 1/2 years old. He has learnt so much from crawling to walking, learning words, shapes and numbers to now talking in sentences. The staff at the nursery are always welcoming with smiles and friendly. We can always see that our son has had a great day when we collect him.

I cannot fault Harpool and the staff! The effort, attention and love they give to the children is incredible. My son's personality and learning skills have improved hugely and I really do believe that Harpole and the team are a massive factor to this. The manager is a fantastic support and has helped me with me with so many questions and cannot do enough to help. The staff are instrumental in my son's happiness and he is always talking about them. I cannot recommend this nursery enough and will be very sad when my son leaves for school.

We are thrilled to have found and chosen Harpole Nursery for our miracle baby daughter.

I believe excellent staff are the most important part a nursery can provide to a baby/child and this is one of the reasons why I chose Harpole.

As a mummy, I always ensure I display smiles, laughter, a happy cheery environment and affection to my daughter at all times and the staff here certainly do too. The food/menu is also second to none and fresh home cooked food is important to me!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My boys have been at the nursery over the past 5 years. I have never had any problems with the nursery and when I have raised the odd concern (in particular with regards to staff turnover) actions were put in place to update parents on staff changes and staff turnover massively reduced.

I am very happy with the nursery and will be sad when my youngest leaves next year. I have recommended the nursery on numerous occasions and all friends have had positive experiences too.

Friendly, welcoming staff help my daughter to feel safe and well looked after. Pre-prepared activities ready for them to explore. Staff get down at eye level with them and are engaging. Daily handover sheet tells me what my daughter has been doing and records what she has eaten and toileting comments.

Only negative - tea isn't a main meal - it is a snack. Daughter still needs feeding when she comes home from nursery.

My daughter has attended Harpole Day Nursery for over a year now and loves it. She adores the staff and has made some lovely friends among the children. She loves to play outside and there is a lovely secret garden where she loves playing and getting dirty. It is a small nursery and the staff adore the children and the feeling is mutual.

My son only stays at the nursery for 1 day a week, so it took him a while to settle, but the nursery took their time to ensure my son felt safe and comfortable away from home. He loves his key worker and says her name whenever we talk about nursery. After every session, we receive a progress sheet detailing his food, naps, nappies and activities throughout the day, which is always explained to me when I pick up my son. We are really happy with the nursery and my son loves it.

Super friendly homely atmosphere. Nice small baby room.
My daughter has settled in really well and her development has increased rapidly. They cater to every baby's individual need - my little one needs help getting sleep a certain way and they will follow exactly how you do things at home.
We feel totally at ease dropping her off knowing she will have such a great time.

Our son has been at this nursery now for about 6 months and we love it. The staff are so friendly and enthusiastic with the children. He always comes home with lots of stories about what he has been up to that day from painting, helping make dessert for tea time and playing outside in the mud garden. We are also really impressed with the freshly cooked meals he receives and the variety of menus each week. We really cannot say enough good things about this nursery and feel safe dropping him off every day that he will be looked after so well.

My son has been attending Harpole Day Nursery for nearly 1 year and is now off to school. Harpole have been fantastic for the whole of his duration there and they have always made me feel welcome and part of the team. My son loves the time he spends with them and enjoys all the food and activities they provide. They have helped him come on leaps and bounds with reading and writing and doing practical chores for himself, his confidence has grown tremendously. I just wanted to say if your looking for a nursery you should really consider them if you want a small, friendly, family atmosphere for your child.

Average Rating:   4.8 out of 5

Harpole Day Nursery and the staff are wonderful and I'm thrilled we chose this setting for our daughter. The staff always have time to talk to us and have a genuine interest and care in their jobs and the children they look after. As a parent, leaving my daughter at nursery was a difficult decision but Harpole are always so supportive and their communication is fantastic, making returning to work much easier. I love seeing my daughter excited to explore the Ducks room; the range of activities provided makes me confident the staff know how best to enthuse, engage and excite her to ensure her learning and development are fully supported. Most importantly, my little girl loves being there, she is very happy and the staff really care. Thank you!
