The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Windermere Day Nursery (Kettering) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 62 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Windermere Day Nursery (Kettering) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 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 4.868 for Windermere Day Nursery (Kettering) is calculated as follows: ( (648 Excellents x 5) + (90 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 742 Ratings = 4.868

  • 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 Windermere Day Nursery (Kettering) is based on 28 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 17.6 positive Reviews (88 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 17.6 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.

As soon as I walked into Windermere I knew it was right... The rooms are a great size and always clean, with stimulating resources and equipment. My son has only been at the nursery for nearly two months and has settled very well. The staff are all very welcoming and knowledgeable. I love that in the baby room there is a room allocated for sleep and their own little outdoor space.
Overall very happy and would recommend it!

My experience with Windermere Day Nursery has been wonderful, I couldn’t ask for a better nursery. They have helped my child to learn and grow as well as helping and guiding me and my wife along the way. The staff and manager really look out for us and are so caring, they keep us updated with activities in the nursery and how my son is doing. He has had a lovely time at the nursery and has grown attached to it. My family and I have certainly noticed an improvement in my child's interaction, he is confident and sociable and swiftly adjusts to having more children around him. Thank you, Windermere Day Nursery and all the staff working there for taking care of us! I would definitely recommend this nursery, you won’t be left disappointed.

My son started in Windermere Nursery. At the start he was afraid, he doesn't speak English because we are from Slovakia. At 3 years old he got free funding and from this time, he changed - he loves all the activities, started talking English, start drawing, writing, counting.
I am very happy with this nursery and my daughter now attends :)

After two attempts at the other nurseries, I came across Windermere. From the first point of contact, I felt confident with this nursery. Management is always available and accommodates my requirements for my two young boys. All staff are reassuring and always keep me and my husband up to date with our boy's development. Recently had a baby girl and no doubt what so ever that she shall be joining Windermere in the near future. From a mother who used to watch the clock till picking them up to now relaxed and enjoying whatever I shall be doing since they joined Windermere. I can't thank them all enough!

The nursery is fantastic; clean and friendly with outstanding staff. Mass variety of educational toys, whiteboards, personal stereo, book corner, nap area, and craft area.
My son has come on leaps and bounds since starting here. He eats better, is polite and the staff have taught him to share. I'm in the process of potty training and the staff have helped and stuck to his needs. His vocabulary has improved so much too.
Parents worry in the summer about how their children will be in the sun and burn; not here, the staff make sure the children are frequently applied with sun cream, drink adequate amounts of water.
Lovely outside play area with bikes, water tables and climbing apparatus.
Lovely meals for the children serving breakfast, a hot meal at lunchtime and tea. I could not fault it here as children are provided with nappies at the school
I wanted to swap from afternoons to mornings. this was not an issue, and the manager has done very well and I'm proud to say my son is at this nursery.

My son was apprehensive at first but soon settled in and appears to love it now. There is plenty for him to do, and clearly, the staff engaged with him, as they give a good review at the end of the day. He eats well and the menu is quite varied. He loves the outside and they have a great area to play when the weather permits.

Windermere is a fantastic nursery through and through, when my child started he was very clingy and would get very upset, the staff were brilliant and really helped him to settle. His needs were always met and he was taught so much and came such a long way, making his transition to big school a lot easier for him. I would give the nursery five stars and more, it's very welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the nursery to every parent I know and if I was to have anymore children I'd 100% use Windermere again.

Excellent experience for my little girl. When we were looking for a nursery for our child, the first preference was quality and that brought us to Windermere. The mature learning my daughter received from Windermere will make her stand in front of any body else anywhere in the world. I would say excellent place, excellent staff, excellent learning and brilliant experience.

My son has had an amazing two years at Windermere. He has great bonds with the staff and has learnt so much. Having a big computer screen in the room was fantastic and all the different theme days overall I am so happy.

This is just to express my gratitude and appreciation on how Windermere staff are contributing to my son's development. When I was unwell staff took it upon themselves to help my son to make a "get well" card for me. He also made a fathers day card for his father and we both appreciate all this. Being away from him when I was ill was difficult, but to receive a card from him was marvellous and touching. The staff are doing a great job to our kids and also think about us as parents. Thank you very much.

My experience of the nursery has been a very good one. My older child attended from when she was 11 months old until she left to go to school, my two year old attends now. The staff are all very kind, caring and my child is very happy.

My daughter only started at the nursery this month, but the staff have been nothing but kind and supportive. It was arranged for us to have 2 settling in sessions and then a third when she didn't fully settle in the 2. The management staff have also been brilliant in organising a set monthly payment over the next 4 months to allow for easier accounting for us. All the staff have always been very welcoming and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble.
