Reviews

4.5 Bole Hill Nursery has a Review Score of 4.5 (4.507)

The Review Score of 4.5 (maximum of 10) for Bole Hill Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bole Hill Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.507 for Bole Hill Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.507

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bole Hill Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 31.4 positive Reviews (157 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 31.4 Target = 0

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

My 3 children have different personalities. Each one has been cared for wonderfully well with a full appreciation of who they are and what works for them. Staff are fantastic, cheerful, caring and willing to go the extra mile. A lot of them have been there for at least 5 years, which says very good things about them. Value for money is good, especially the sibling/full time discount! I would recommend the nursery without hesitation.

My daughter loves attending Bole Hill Nursery. She has developed a strong bond with most of the staff she has been cared for by across 3 age groups, and most of the staff are keen to talk me as a parent about her experiences and progress. The nursery offers a wide range of different activities for the children. The nursery building and wider grounds are exceptional - unlike others we visited.

We have been recommended the nursery by a friend who had all her three children here full time. This was just over a year ago, our son started very young in the baby group and moved on as he grew. We both work full time and wanted a place where our little one will be very well looked after. We are extremely happy and our son is too, he became attached to some of the girls here and he made lots of friends already. It is a big nursery and benefits from a lot of staff, our son is very loved here and we started to make friends with other parents and staff as well. The people working at the nursery are extremely dedicated and go the extra mile to make babies happy and in many instances I have seen former pupils coming in just to say hello.

Food is prepared here and they follow a balanced diet, which made the weaning process easy as our son started enjoying all different types of food as he tried them on very early.
The building is full of character as an old Victorian School with plenty of room and a fantastic Tudor Hall which acts as the main playroom where close age group meet and socialise. There is a large outdoor space as well and a back garden where children play in good weather.
We get daily reports and then a larger one in a folder when our son moves age group; it is full of pictures and description of milestones he achieves whilst there , they have lots of activities to stimulate them at all ages.

Both my children have attended this nursery and enjoyed their time there. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is plenty to do. I love the hall space (like a small soft play) and the outdoor area is much improved. You can speak to your child's key worker daily for updates, and we love the books you get when your child moves rooms (full of photos and pictures and info on what they have been upto).

I find the staff fantastic, very caring and they all seem to know my son by name and he knows theirs. He is relaxed there which puts you at ease. They are very flexible with changing days and the price is very competitive.

My daughter has come on since she has been attending this nursery since 9 months old. The key-worker allocated for your child is good so you can discuss anything.
Brilliant staff. The menu choice for your child is good too. Activities are good and the learning regime.
