Reviews

8.8 Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.812)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Sir Leslie Martin 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.883 for Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.883

  • 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

  • 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 Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 6 months old (she is now 10 months old). She spends two full days there.
I couldn't recommend the nursery highly enough. All of the staff are really accommodating, making time to answer questions prior to us joining, spending time with both me and my daughter to ensure she settled in well. During the first week they helped to alleviate any concerns and put my mind at rest, they are dedicated to the care of the babies but also to you as a parent, making sure you are reassured and confident in leaving your child in their care.
My daughter has come on so much since being there, she absolutely loves it. They encourage her to learn new skills all of the time, play with her, encourage her, try her with new foods etc. The two main teachers/carers in the baby room clearly genuinely love babies and the jobs they do and I have no hesitation in leaving her in their care. They are first aid trained too which is of great comfort.

This is a brilliant nursery where everyone feels a part of the family. The staff are so caring and nurturing towards all of the children and their needs. It is small in numbers, which makes for a personal feel, and all staff in the nursery know all of the children across all ages of the nursery.
They are very accommodating for specific food requirements. There is always something to celebrate - either British or foreign and this makes for fun activities for the children. A true "home from home" and we'll all be sad when it is time for big school!

Our little boy has attended the Sir Leslie Martin Day Nursery since February (2015) and I can only express how delighted we are with the Owner and the team. Each morning we are personally greeted with the warmest of welcomes by the Manager, which is a lovely way to start the day! We find all the staff are just as engaging with both children and parents and we go off to work safe in the knowledge that our little boy is going to have a fantastic day! The nursery itself has plenty of displays for the children to look at, and a lovely garden for them to play in. The baby room is full of fun things to do (our little boy especially likes the ball pool) and even has a mezzanine level where the children "go up to bed". Safety and security is paramount - only staff can open the door, no mobile phones etc - It really feels like a home from home! The range of activities is fantastic and I always look forward to hearing about what they've been up to and looking at the photo's that go into their development journal. The varied cuisine is great in encouraging children to try new things and I often wish I could stay for lunch myself!! Our little boy has truly come on leaps and bounds in terms of development and social skills and we feel confident this will continue during his remaining time at the nursery.

I cannot fault this nursery. It is evident that both the staff and management are highly trained and passionate about their job. The layout of the facilities are well planned and every child's needs are catered for. Both children and their parents are welcomed with a warm friendly greeting, day or night. I highly recommend this nursery to all my friends and cannot emphasise enough how impressed I have been, in particular the way in which the children are clearly loved and cared for.
