Reviews

8.1 Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.139)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

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

Reviewer Connection to Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School

  • Mother of Child

I sent my son here for 2 days a week from when he was 6 months right up to starting school. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. When you hand over the care of your most precious loved one you need somewhere you can trust and know that your child will be safe. Narnia took such great care looking after our son, safeguarding him, teaching him, caring for him, encouraging him to grow and blossom. Our boy came home so happy.
Narnia is a fantastic place. Each child is treated as an individual, everything is so personal. They make sure they offer such a wide range of activities both fun and educational. The place is small and homely, and every adult knows every child's name, always happy to greet them. I visited other nurseries and saw one where the caregivers were on their mobile phones, and one was so big there seemed like no personal touch. Narnia is just right. When we have our second child we will not hesitate.

Karen Matthews, Owner/Manager at Narnia Day Nursery & Nursery School responded to this review on 13 Jun 2017:

It was an absolute pleasure to look after your son. Thank you for all your lovely comments. I do hope one day we will have another baby here.

The nursery is a very caring and nurturing environment for the children to be part of and all of the children feel happy and safe in the environment; you can really see this with how at ease all of the children are in each room as they move through the nursery.

The outside play area is used at least twice a day by the children, in all weathers, and this is something our son has loved during his time at Narnia and it provides a lovely variety to the children's day. We think the routine will really help our son when he comes to start school, circle time has really built his confidence and he is very happy to talk about his feelings and activities he has done. Mealtimes are also very social and again, we think this structure will help a lot in the early days of starting school. We could not recommend the Narnia team highly enough.

Narnia is very small and has a real family feel, which was the key reason for us choosing to send our son there. A really lovely nursery!
