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 4.716 for Kenton Park Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.716

  • 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 3.086 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kenton Park Nursery School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.086

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

Both of our children have attended Kenton Park Nursery and it is truly a loving and supportive environment for any child. The staff throughout show a genuine interest in each child and work to ensure they meet the needs of each individual.
I would, without a doubt, recommend this nursery and pre-school to any parent and we feel very fortunate that we have had the luck for our children to be nurtured in such a loving environment in their early years.

This nursery has been great for our daughter. The staff are very caring towards her and she is very settled there. My daughter is always offered three meals a day and given a nap. I am always informed with regards to the quantity she has eaten and length of time she has slept. There have been a couple of times where she was in the accident book, one occasion a staff member stood on her hand which I understand is an accident but maybe staff could be more cautious. Overall I am very happy with my choice of nursery.

Mandy Conway, Nursery Manager at Kenton Park Nursery School responded to this review on 17 Dec 2015:

Thanks for your kind comments. We are a transparent nursery and always communicate openly and honestly with our parents, as we believe this is very important to building a strong relationship and trust.

Overall I am happy with Kenton Park Nursery, with the staff and resources being good. The only improvement I would like would be if the staff gave a little more information on what your child had been like that day, what had been done and if there had been any problems/good feedback.

An excellent nursery, staff exceptionally caring and friendly towards both parents and children. Excellent polities in place and if my son has a minor accident all procedures are followed and paperwork completed.
Routine and structured learning, with opportunities for free play. My son runs into nursery with joy and excitement and doesn't want to leave on a night!
I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

Ever since my little boy started at the nursery he has loved it. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. It has brought him so much with his talking and learning different things. He always talks about the staff and knows them by name. He will always tell me what he does at nursery if out in garden or painting or singing which to me means he enjoys every minute and always loves the food which is home cooked, which is great. Overall a great family feel to the nursery.

My daughter couldn't be happier at Kenton Park. She adores her key worker and doesn't even look back when I drop her off in the morning! The nursery staff have gone above and beyond what we expected in developing our daughter and supporting her as she does have some extra needs.
They are so lovely with all the kids and you can see every day how happy they are there. We have recommended the nursery to several friends who now have their children in the nursery and are as happy as we are with everything there. They've got my baby eating more food, and coming on with all aspects of her development. We are so impressed.

Kenton Park is a fantastic nursery school. It has excellent management who lead by role-modelling an ethos that is seen throughout the nursery. The staff are friendly, caring, hands-on and really get to know the children - and what is important to them. I feel confident that my son is really well looked after when he is at the nursery. He enjoys the activities and time with the staff. I can see that his time at the nursery nurtures his confidence and he feels supported in his own development.

This is his last year at the nursery - we will really miss it. It is a fabulous place and I would highly recommend for babies and children.
