Reviews

9.9 Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.929)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Farthing Wood Private 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 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.929 for Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (302 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 324 Ratings = 4.929

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery is based on 21 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 daughter attended for three years and now my baby boy has just started there.
The staff are pleasant and make you feel totally at ease leaving your child there.
I know my little boy has a lovely time whilst he's there. The nursery provides lots of stimulating activities for him.
The food is great I've never known him not to finish a meal there! Great choice of food! Would highly recommend.

As a teacher, I spent a lot of time weighing up what the right childcare options were for my family. From the moment I visited Farthing Wood, I felt nothing was too much trouble and no question was too daft!
The nursery isn't too big so you soon get to know all the staff (as well as many of the other parents and children). The staff are all warm and friendly and really put us at ease from our very first visit. It is clear from when you walk in that they have a fabulous rapport with each and every child. My little boy (now 2) has been attending since he was 9 months old and it has been great to share his experiences through the daily routine sheets, learning journey and Farthing Wood Facebook page.
My family and I are grateful for all the hard work of the nursery team and would definitely recommend this setting to local families.

Two of my daughters attended Farthing wood. They were very happy going there and enjoyed the time they spent there. I found the staff very friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and kind. My daughters spent time doing many fun activities, a lot of these were in preparation for EYFS at school but never beyond what the child could do. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

I have 3 children who have all attended and still attend Farthing Wood Nursery and now the out of school club. The staff are always friendly and happy and go that extra mile for the children. Including learning to look after a child with both medical, sensory and educational additional needs. I can fully trust leaving my children with the staff and have no reason to worry. They are very flexible especially at short notice and my children love going to Farthing Wood.

I would highly recommend Farthing Wood Day Nursery. We first started using this nursery 8 years ago for our daughter. After looking around a few at the time we decided this was the one, the staff were really friendly polite and welcoming. We were really apprehensive about leaving her at first but this soon passed and she settled in brilliantly and she loved it. She is now 8 and excelling at school and I do believe Farthing wood played a huge role in her learning and development.
We are now back at Farthing Wood with our son, 3 years on and we didn't feel the need to look elsewhere, he has also really settled in.
The staff are slightly different but as always, welcoming and friendly. No complaints at all, very understanding and flexible if they are needed to be.
We currently have a 3-month-old son now too and there is no doubt he will follow in his sibling's footsteps to the door of Farthing Wood.

I would highly recommend this nursery. My child has been attending Farthing Wood for 6 months now and I couldn't ask for a much more happier environment for him to be in. He is always really excited to go and always looks like he has had a great day when I collect him. I never worry about him throughout the day as I know he is in good hands. The staff are very lovely, polite and caring and always make the time to tell me about his day. Every time I collect my child from nursery, he always talks about his time at nursery and what he's been playing with! I am really happy that I have found this nursery for my child! My child enjoys playing out in the outdoor area. I am really happy with all the care my child's getting from Farthing Wood! Thanks!! Thumbs up guys. Would recommend this nursery to everyone out there who's looking for a place for their child!

Farthing Wood are an astounding group of women who do everything I could ever ask for my daughter and more. They're flexible, kind, caring and above all else, my daughter wants to go to nursery each day! As a father, I can ask for little more than knowing, 100%, that my daughter is safe and happy while I'm at work. They are excellent!

Every time I visit Farthing Wood I am welcomed into the nursery by the staff members who are extremely polite and welcoming.
My niece has been attending Farthing Wood since she was 8 months old and is now in Pre-school preparing to start Primary School. I am kept up to date with her progress on a daily basis and she has a learning journey with overall details. I couldn't be any happier with the care received at Farthing Wood and will always recommend them.
Many thanks.

My 17 month old daughter has attended the nursery for 8 months now and had really developed in this time. Her character is starting to shine and I'm sure the staff at Farthing Wood have contributed towards this. They are very friendly and my daughter seems to get on well with them all which makes the hard task of leaving her under someone else's care that bit easier.

My daughter has been going to Farthing Wood for four months since the age of 7 months old and has come on leaps and bounds. The staff are all very friendly and loving and my daughter enjoys going to see them twice a week. The facilities are excellent. she is always fed good, healthy meals and often comes home with mementoes of the day's activities. I could not recommend Farthing Wood highly enough.

My husband and I, as first-time parents, tackled the process of finding a nursery like a military operation: beginning with our requirements and ending with a comprehensive spreadsheet of all the applicable in our area. We visited EVERY nursery on said spreadsheet, an epic task in its own right. After two months of planning, enquiring, visiting, reading and admittedly, outright snooping, we came to the conclusion that Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery was the place for our gal. You may wonder why I have bored you with the indiscriminate details of my nursery hunt! Simple: to put absolute emphasis on the process behind our decision, to ensure that those reading this review are left in no doubt about our feelings for Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery. As the old Chinese proverb tells us "Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere" and as a result of Farthing Woods' solid foundation, my daughter can follow her desires across the world with the confidence that she KNOWS she has the map in her heart.

I am very happy with the care my daughter receives at Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery. She always speaks very highly about all staff members and is always excited to tell me about her day. She loves singing and dancing and all of the other fun things she does each day. When I was choosing a nursery for my daughter about 18 months ago I had a good feeling about Farthing Wood as soon as I stepped inside and started speaking to the staff and watching how they interacted with the children. When my daughter moved from toddlers to preschool they made the transition gradually so that she could get used to her new environment and to make sure that she was settled and happy. If you are looking for a small, friendly and caring nursery for you child I would highly recommend paying a visit to Farthing Wood Private Day Nursery

Our son really enjoys his time at nursery. He started when he was just under a year old in the baby room and is just about to move to the toddler room and we have had no concerns with him settling in and spending the whole day with others. Staff are really friendly, approachable, and can't do enough to help and care for your child. When our son started we were asked to send in information about our sons daily routine so that this could be replicated at nursery. This was closely followed and adapted as necessary and has meant that our son has had a smooth transition between home & nursery. Staff always listen to the information we need to give them about our son when we drop him off in a morning and when we pick him up staff go through in detail what he has done that day, how he has been in himself, what he has eaten etc and this is also written down on an information sheet which you get to bring home (which is great if you're like me & can't remember things from one minute to the next).

I had my reservations about putting our son in nursery and didn't quite know what to expect. Having been a teacher previously myself I knew I'd be really particular about choosing one, even though I'd never actually been in one before. Farthing Wood was the second nursery we looked at and I didn't bother going to any others - that should speak for itself. I loved what I saw and knew it was the right place for my son. I can't recommend this nursery enough - great place, great staff, and ultimately a great environment for our son to play, learn and grow.
