Reviews

9.2 Orchard Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.183)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Orchard Day Nursery 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Orchard Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 8 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 4.948 for Orchard Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.948

  • 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 4.235 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Orchard Day Nursery is based on 8 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 34 positive Reviews (170 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 34 Target = 0.235

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

This nursery has done absolute wonders for my nephew. Getting to see his language develop and confidence grow in walking has been wonderful. The staff have always been lovely to speak to and I trust each and every one of them with his care. I’d recommend this nursery to everyone I know!

Can't believe how well our grandson has settled in. The staff are wonderful and so understanding. We looked at so many different nurseries and there was none that compared to Orchard.

I can't praise them highly enough. From the managers to the staff in the room, they have helped our baby make the transition from home to nursery so easy. Best decision the family made.

A truly outstanding nursery! We have 4 children (10 years, 7 years and 2-year-old twins) and they have all attended Orchard Day Nursery. As such, we have been part of the Orchard family for many years and this is exactly how it feels - a family. The exemplary staff care for the children as their own, providing care, fun, cuddles and laughter in equal measure. From cleaning staff to management and everyone in between we could not wish for a more loving, warm environment. The facilities are excellent, including a huge garden and sensory room. One of our children has additional needs and there has been endless support and advice and the liaison with different agencies is superb. The staffing is stable with a wealth of experience meaning that real relationships are built with families over time - this is absolutely invaluable. Any comments are always listened to and the management do everything in their power to make life easier for families. This was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

The nursery is a wonderful place for our child to grow and develop. I am able to go to work reassured that our child is cared for whilst I do. I feel there is a genuine sense of caring from staff. Staff are enthusiastic, friendly, encouraging and professional. We feel that activities we hear about are thoroughly planned and our child is offered a wide variety. Staff ideas are so imaginative. Overall this nursery is a wonderful environment for our child and others to experience.

Both my children have attended this nursery and I couldn't be more happy with it. The staff were fantastic and both children have thrived throughout. When my daughter started primary school the teachers stopped me and told me she was exceeding in areas, this I thought was because of her time at Orchard.

My son still attends and is such a happy boy and loves his time at the nursery; celebrating festivals, charity events, and trips to local parks. The nursery is bright, well equipped and has a beautiful garden and amazing sensory room. I have suggested this nursery to lots of my friends whom all were more than happy with Orchard. The staff are friendly, warming and are excellent with the children.

My second child currently attends Orchard Day Nursery. After an amazing experience with my first child, there was no doubt my second would be following in his brother footsteps. From the very initial meeting the staff couldn't do more to help and make you feel at ease, at what they know can be a worrying time for parents. You are never rushed and staff have lots of time for your questions. The staff at Orchard go above and beyond in providing the best possible care for my child and no request is too big. My child loves nursery (school) and can't wait to get in to see his teachers and friends. Each morning he is welcomed by the amazing staff with smiles and open arms, for when those cuddles are needed. I leave for work a happy mummy knowing my child is safe, happy and learning in such a friendly environment surrounded by the most caring and supportive staff you could ask for. Can not recommend this nursery highly enough and all the amazing things they do.

My daughter has attended The Orchard Day Nursery for 2 years now and I am extremely impressed with how well it has helped her develop.

A number of activities on offer for children of all ages are exceptional. A vast outdoor garden for used both for play and learning is available throughout the year weather permitting. Children's meals are well planned varied, and nutritious.

The nursery is well secured and procedures are in place which further protects all the children - not just my daughter, which to me is more important than anything as safety is key.

Above all I have never had any complaints from my daughter, she is always eager to attend and I would never hesitate to use this nursery again.
