Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 Toy Box Day Nursery 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 3.093 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toy Box Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.093

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

Anna, Nursery Manager at Toy Box Day Nursery responded to this review on 26 Mar 2018:

Hello Emma. Thank you for your kind words.

What a fantastic nursery!

My eldest son attended Toy Box between July 2010 and September 2014. He thoroughly enjoyed his time here and made some very strong bonds with both staff and children alike. He particularly enjoyed the spacious outdoor area, especially exploring the mud kitchen and other messy activities.

I am pleased with the level of education my son received during his time here which stood him in great stead for starting school. He performs well both academically and socially and I feel a huge part of this is down to the hard work and dedication that Toy Box Day Nursery demonstrated as a whole.

Staff always took the time to inform us of his development and also of activities we could do at home to extend his learning. There were opportunities to come in for consultations with his key person about his development as a whole and we also attended parent workshops after hours where the manager would explain different areas of the curriculum and give guidance on how to deliver numeracy and literacy to our children at home.

The standard of the food is very high. My son always ate well (which didn't always happen at home) and I was always pleased with the variety of food offered to the children.

There are always extra curricular activities going on here, such as dressing up days, outings, visits by people form the wider community and also fundraising events. I was very pleased that my son was part of the different events such as the annual Sports Day, Christmas Party, Nativity Plays and also the Graduation Party that is thrown for the school leavers each year.

The management team here are great. Very efficient and professional but also approachable, caring and considerate to the needs of the families and children that attend.

We have another son on the way and as soon as we found out we were expecting I made sure that his place was secured here. It is best to book early as they often have long waiting lists for popular days.

We are looking forward to our youngest son starting here in July 2016 and know that he will receive the same exceptional level of care and education that was delivered to our eldest.

This setting really is worth a visit. They have an open door policy and made both my wife and I feel welcome from the first visit.
