The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Honey Pots Forest School 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Honey Pots Forest School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 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 4.861 for Honey Pots Forest School is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.861

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Honey Pots Forest School is based on 5 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.833

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

My daughter has been going to the nursery on and off and the times that she was coming back she would be normal, like she never missed home. So that means she felt happy there as she happily went in for hugs and cuddles with the staff there.
Lovely staff, always helpful and nice, I like the activities very much that my daughter does whilst going to the nursery, she is behaving even better than at home!

Our baby boy started with Honey Pots when he was 1 and a half, he was struggling to settle in the early stages as we expected, as it was a new routine for him.

But every single time I to pick him up he is very happy playing around and he loves the outdoor garden in this nursery. They give him lots of cuddles when he is unwell and I think the food is nice as he often comes home with big belly which shows he eats well.

Generally, I am happy with the nursery and I would recommend to friends whose kids love a big garden to play in and appreciate the location of the beautiful countryside .

My child was welcomed from day 1 and the staff worked hard to help him settle in. He loves his time at nursery and talks about the activities he did there. Staff are excellent and great with the kids.
Excellent facilities and the wood area is a great asset.
My child has thrived from going to this nursery. Thank you.

Jo Bussey, Nursery Manager at Honey Pots Forest School responded to this review on 06 Sep 2016:

Thank you Jemma for your kind words. It was a pleasure to look after your son. Hope he's enjoying school.

Can highly recommend this nursery my little girl went at 10 months old until last September when she went to school and loved it and the staff were great. The outdoor area is lovely and we liked the free access she had to be outside as much as possible. The transition to school has gone great which shows nursery provided a great start for her

All the staff are friendly and caring. My little boy asks to attend on days off. They have been very accommodating if I have needed to change the odd morning/session. The environment is very homely with a good range of structured and non structured play.

We are very pleased with Flaxton Nursery. Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his days there over the past two years and I believe that the staff at the nursery have helped greatly in his development and interaction with others. They maintain an excellent structure during the nursery day and I feel that this is something that greatly benefits the children. There is a huge variety of activities a the nursery which the staff organise which I think is fantastic. Everything at the nursery is put to the children in a fun and interesting way allowing then to enjoy their learning. I also really like the fact that the children spend a lot of time outside, and do this at all times of the year.

Our child had attended this nursery since she was 9 months old, she is nearly 3. She has benefitted immensely learning good social skills such as interacting, sharing well, playing with others and communication. The staff are very friendly, helpful and supportive. They organise an extensive array of activities for the children. We have never had a day with tears!

We have 2 children at Flaxton Nursery, our older son has been there for 2 years and our younger for 4 months. They love it and are very settled there and we cannot fault the nursery and staff.
