Reviews

9.7 Chestnuts Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.699)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Chestnuts 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chestnuts Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.949 for Chestnuts Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (205 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.949

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chestnuts Day Nursery is based on 6 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.750

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

When I was looking for a nursery my initial thought was no one can look after my son well enough. However, from the first settling in session at Chestnuts I was put at ease and confident that my son would be happy there. From the first week, I could see small changes in him. After 5 weeks, he has developed so much in confidence and his skill set has grown.
All the girls at Chestnuts are so warm and friendly, which makes me more reassured that whoever looked after my son that day, he was in good hands. I am always greeted with a warm welcome when I arrive and the staff takes time to go through his days with me.
The staff are so loving towards him and he’s always happy when I pick him up.

Very positive. Carers know all the children. Children are treated as individuals and encouraged to develop in own areas of strength and weakness.
Good emphasis on outdoor play.

Chestnuts is a wonderful, friendly nursery. Both of my children have been extremely happy attending the nursery and the amount they have grown in confidence is down to the care and attention of all the staff at the nursery. I am very happy that we chose this nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

My son started at Chestnuts Day Nursery at 12 months old and has thoroughly enjoyed his experience. He is almost 4 years old and loves the preschool class (Busy Bees). There is a low turnover of staff and they are all very caring and hardworking. The activities in nursery are always appropriate to the children's ages and abilities. Chestnuts Day Nursery continues to develop the resources both inside and outside. Our son loves the nursery and we are very happy that we chose Chestnuts Day Nursery.

Chestnuts Day Nursery is a lovely nursery with a very homely feel. All the children are very happy there. The staff are very attentive and well trained. The nursery is not very IT savvy, no newsletters or memorabilia is shared via email/facebook etc. This would be beneficial. The outside space is very good and used well all year round. There are lots of events going on to involve the children and excite them.

My eldest son has just left Chestnuts to start school having been there since 11 months old, and my youngest is nearly 3 and has just moved into the pre-school class at Chestnuts, having also been there since 11 months old. The Chestnuts staff are all friendly, loved by the kids, reliable and passionate about working with parents/families jointly on any areas of development. Regular development meetings with the staff again highlight how they are on top of the needs of my kids and their unique quirks. Both boys had great help with toilet training. My eldest has left being able to write his name. My younger son hasn't quite got the language to give much detail about his days but he is always happy when picked up and if you ask him who he played with today he always passionately reels off a list of the nursery staff. Newsletters and arts and crafts clearly demonstrate the rounded education received by kids at Chestnuts and I would thoroughly recommend the nursery to anyone.

My son loves coming to nursery he always has a smile on his face when dropping off and picking him up. The staff are all caring and provides activities to help him to develop. He spends time in the garden and likes to climb on the climbing frame which he couldn't do a few weeks ago. There is always sand and water out for him to play in.
