Reviews

9.9 Much Woolton Old School Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.940)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Much Woolton Old School 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Much Woolton Old School Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.94 for Much Woolton Old School Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (157 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.94

  • 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 Much Woolton Old School Nursery is based on 7 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 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 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.

Outstanding nursery. The staff are amazing, always felt at ease leaving my little girl and she loved being there. The old rustic feel and grounds are great for children to play and use their imagination. They grow their own veggies in the garden and always have healthy home cooked food. I will also be sending my little boy there when he's old enough so he can enjoy the same nursery as his sister.

Thank you, Hayley, for your lovely comments x

The nursery is in a wonderful setting with plenty of outside area for children to play and explore. All staff members are very professional and welcoming. My daughter loves going to nursery and in particular loves the food.

Thank you, John for your kind words x

Family friendly nursery with very welcoming staff. The children are happy and cared for. There is a great outdoor space which they can enjoy a variety of activities. All meals are homemade. The staff take a lot of time to prepare the children to start school. Great communication between staff and parents.

An amazing nursery. Both of my children have attended and have been nurtured and supported. I love that it's relatively small, it has a family like atmosphere with different age groups mixing. There is a very low turnover of staff which is great for consistency.
Staff are friendly and approachable and always make time to talk if needed. The garden is a massive bonus for us as the children love to be outside, the garden is huge and full of adventure.

Much Woolton Nursery is a friendly, caring and loving environment where children can thrive.
Staff are attentive and approachable on every level and reassuring during those early bedding in weeks.
The environment is wonderful, especially the outdoor areas which are full of adventure. My daughter loves it.
This will be my third child at the nursery and I honestly can't praise it enough. A great start to their little lives, I just wish they could stay longer!

Thank you so much, Adelle, x

This nursery is like a home from home. All of the staff are fantastic, all approachable, extremely friendly, compassionate and caring. The outdoor area is an asset to the nursery, my daughter loves playing outside whatever the weather. She also loves it when they are indoors because the structure for learning and play is well supported. The food is freshly prepared and cooked on site which is also great. Whatever the time of day the children always look content.

Thankyou very much Nicola

Two of my three daughters have attended Much Woolton Old School Nursery. I cannot praise it highly enough. Both of my girls have thoroughly enjoyed their time here and I would and have recommended it to many parents. I love the emphasis on outdoor play and there is certainly enough outdoor space for all of the children. At the end of each day, my daughter comes home tired and happy full of stories of who she has played with and what she has done today. The staff are absolutely brilliant and always have time, even when it's hectic, to speak to parents. I will be very sad when the time comes for her to go to school and leave this wonderful place.

Thank you so much x

We are coming to the end of my daughter's time at The Old School nursery, as she will be going to School in September - and I don't know which of us will be more sad about leaving! I couldn't praise this nursery and its staff highly enough. Like many parents, I was anxious as to where to send Holly as she had previously only been with either myself or family. I had viewed a number of nurseries, however when I visited this nursery. I was overwhelmed! Its intimate setting has been perfect. It's fantastic outside space, & character filled education rooms remind me of somewhere I would have gone myself all those years ago. The environment both indoors & outdoors has fuelled Holly's imagination & allowed her to develop in ways I could only have hoped for. The staff have supported her journey & allowed me to feel confident that she is being well looked after - I really couldn't praise them highly enough. I have recommended this nursery to friends, & will be sending my little boy there too.

I moved my child to this nursery from another setting and it was the best decision I made. I was blown away by the setting when I went to visit especially the outdoor area. The staff in the setting are lovely and he felt very at ease and settled in straight away. I love the variety of activities he takes part in and I feel that the standard of teaching and learning is outstanding. He always comes home from nursery telling me about all the healthy and nutritional foods he is eating/cooking during his time in the setting. I will be very sad when he leaves to go to reception in September and my only regret would be that he didn't start this nursery earlier. Over all his learning, development and confidence has flourished since he started the setting. As a parent I would highly recommend this nursery to others.

I can't be any happier with the nursery. Our son loves to play outside and the nursery offers amazing outdoor space. It is a small nursery, which means all the staff know all the children so well and I can tell my son enjoys seeing all familiar faces every time he goes in. It's the best thing to see your child's happy face when you go to pick him up which tells you that he's had a lovely day.

My son, now 2, absolutely loves it, he has been at this nursery for 6 months now and could not be happier. This is a safe and loving environment for my son to flourish, his confidence and vocabulary has improved significantly during a short period of time.

All staff are very kind and caring, my son's key worker keeps us informed of my son's progress and wellbeing daily, nothing is too much trouble. Without a doubt I would recommend Old School nursery to everyone.
