Reviews

6.9 Helen Howes Private Day Nurseries has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.944)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Helen Howes Private Day Nurseries is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Helen Howes Private Day Nurseries in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.2 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.783 for Helen Howes Private Day Nurseries is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 2.161 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Helen Howes Private Day Nurseries is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.321 , then divided by 2 = 0.161

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

Helen Howes nursery...... where do I start! My first child only started nursery at two and a half and I really didn't want her to go. All she had ever known was me her daddy and my mum! A few weeks passed and I can honestly say it was just like dropping her off at my mum's! The wrap around care is truly amazing, the staff are so reassuring and nurturing! Now my eldest is at school my two-year-old girl just started and she can't wait to go and I feel just the same! It's so hard to find the right setting and I looked at many!!! This is a fantastic nursery!

Helen Howes is a warm, friendly nurturing nursery which provides exceptional care and guidance. My little person is extremely happy there and has flourished over the past year. He thoroughly enjoys all of the activities, the provision and has built an amazing bond with his key workers and all staff. Because the nursery is a small family run business the staff can take the time and care to really cherish each individual child. Staff always take on board feedback and do everything they can to improve where necessary for the good of each child.
Above anything my little person is happy and as a mum that's all that matters to me.
In addition with soaring child care costs, I would highly recommend this provision as being excellent value for money.

Helen Howes is a very friendly and well run nursery. Everyone is very helpful and attentive with the little ones. I have always had a good relationship with the management of the nursery and they have good education and entertainment for my little one.

My son has been going to this nursery since he was one. He loves his days at nursery and loves to tell me all about what he has done and all about his friends. All the staff are lovely and very professional. I will be upset when the day comes when he leaves to go to school.

Our child has been going to the nursery for over a year now. Before he started, he seemed to be struggling with development. Now he is flourishing! They have made it so easy for me to leave my child. I'm even hoping to send my second child when I return to work. I would highly recommend this nursery.
