Reviews

6.4 Acorn Childcare Nursery Northwich has a Review Score of 6.4 (6.424)

The Review Score of 6.4 (maximum of 10) for Acorn Childcare Nursery Northwich 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Acorn Childcare Nursery Northwich in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.879 for Acorn Childcare Nursery Northwich is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.879

  • 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 1.545 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorn Childcare Nursery Northwich is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.089 , then divided by 2 = 0.045

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

Fantastic nursery. My son absolutely loves his days here. The staff are always incredibly cheery and helpful, and make both my son and me incredibly welcome. I always get a breakdown of how he has been, what he's had to eat, any accidents etc. He is always bringing arts and crafts projects home, as well as cakes and other goodies they have all made.

Both of our daughters have gone to Acorns and we have been impressed in a number of ways.

The way in which the staff interact with the kids is second to none. It is lovely to hear them recount observations made in changes of character and developmental milestones. You get a real sense they care about the children.

The outdoor space is fantastic and it is evident that a lot of thought has gone into making the nursery a great place for our girls to develop and grow.

This nursery is brilliant! My daughter stayed for over 3 years & Acorn brought her on so much & gave her the best start to life. They offer early starts which was a great help due to work commitments! Lovely staff, great facilities, the garden is amazing! Food is really nutritious & varied! The site is secure which I like! I would definitely recommend this nursery to others!

My first child made excellent progress at the nursery and enjoyed her time there. The staff are very caring and supportive of the children and there is a good mix of experience within each room. I was most attracted to the outdoor space and facilities and the way that they use the rooms effectively. I have now sent my youngest child there and she is settling in well. I would and do recommend the nursery to others.

Both my children have attended Acorn Nursery. They have always been treated with care and affection, the staff are always available to listen to any concerns and attentive towards the children. My girls love the outside space which always seems to be very well used rain or shine. The facilities I feel are excellent. The staff are all approachable and very friendly towards the children. Acorn Nursery is a happy place to be.

A fantastic nursery with amazing outside features and space to explore; which attracted me to the nursery straightaway. Friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere daily. My daughter thoroughly enjoys nursery and has come on lots through her time at Acorns.

My children went to a few nursery settings and never seemed very happy, I moved them to Acorn where they settled and actually enjoyed themselves. This is an excellent nursery with great staff and a great building with a large garden. I would endure the one hour round trip to drop them off in rush hour just because the nursery was worth it. My children also comment on how much they enjoy Acorn food and say that they make better mashed Potato than me.

To the team
A short note to thank you all once again for the care you provide to my children. Rarely do I write to congratulate people we pay for doing a good job; for that's what I expect. But with my children it's different, and you guys get it. We expect them to be cared for, taught, and nurtured.
Today, once again you've gone above and beyond what we expect, and that's why I want to say thanks. My wife and I know our children are safe in your care.
However you have instilled your values into your staff and it should be bottled and sold, because they're all great at what they do. They all know our children, their traits and personalities; and this is rare - and what we are most thankful for.
Kind regards

Acorn is a friendly, warming place. My two children love it there. The staff are all very friendly. They have been extremely accommodating and supportive. The sessions are structured and ran by the leaders who all show passion and professionalism in their work.

The garden space is spectacular and allows the children to explore and play in an excellent setting. I haven't seen anywhere else that offers such superb grounds.

I cannot recommend it enough!

I cannot recommend Acorn Nursery enough. From the moment I walked through the door both myself and my daughter were made to feel so comfortable. The garden is absolutely fabulous and was a real selling point for us. Play is encouraged outside and even in the very hot sun the children are well shaded with canopies and kept cool with water play. All the staff really care about the children and it shows. My daughter is reluctant to leave in the evening - which is really all the evidence you need.
I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery.

Absolutely brilliant nursery and preschool. I have an 18 month old daughter and a 4 year old son who have both been there nearly a year, they both love it and the staff are fantastic. Great outdoor space for the children and the rooms are full of different things to do.
