Reviews

9.8 HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.834)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery Ltd 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 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 4.892 for HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (258 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.892

  • 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 4.942 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery Ltd is based on 13 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.942

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

I have been welcomed by the staff on my arrival as grandparent of two children attending Hobblewobbles and found the staff to be helpful and informative. My eldest granddaughter tells me about her day (aged 4) and has enjoyed playing with the staff. I have been very impressed by the care and attention and love the staff pour out over all the children. The children experience lots of different activities within the nursery and are taken out regularly on trips to parks, shops, trams and theatres. These are talked about often by my eldest granddaughter. My youngest (19 months) has developed very well and enjoyed her days

My little boy started at Hobble Wobbles 12 months ago as we had moved house and so he needed to change nurseries. It wasn't our first choice and my son spent a month at another nursery in Shaw which he hated and so we changed him to Hobble Wobbles. For anyone visiting the nursery do not be put off by the interior. It may not look as impressive inside as other nurseries, however, the staff more than make up for this with the care and attention each child receives. Within a week here my son stopped clinging on to me and crying every time I left him and he genuinely enjoys going to nursery. The staff should be praised for the effort they put in.

I started work again in October 2015. I was worried about leaving my son with relative strangers - as any mother would be.. but he adores nursery. The staff are fantastic and you can tell they really care for, and love my son.
I've also had long conversations with staff about our general lives, and they have started to feel more like friends. All of the children seem incredibly happy and warm to the staff quickly. The food is terrific and varied. I couldn't be happier.

I am pleased with the nursery, they have been brilliant with my little girl, she was very clingy when she first started going and they took time out to settle her and make her feel comfortable. They have met all her needs, she has come on loads since going to nursery. I would recommend this nursery to anyone. I am truly happy to be leaving my child in their care, I was very worried about finding her the right nursery and I have found it with HobbleWobbles Private Day Nursery.
