Reviews

9.5 Podlings Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.503)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Podlings 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Podlings Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.903 for Podlings Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.903

  • 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 4.6 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Podlings Nursery is based on 6 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 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.600

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

My 19 month goes to this nursery 3 days a week and she loves it in Podlings Nursery. She even gets excited when we turn into the car park. Great, kind staff that tell me everything I need to know about my girl at the end of the day. I would highly recommend the nursery.

It's clear that staff take real pride in their nursery. It's always clean, tidy and very organised. The staff have taken such good care of my daughter, she adores them. The children always seem happy, well stimulated and friendly and kind with one another. My daughter corrects me, so it's evident the values and behaviour modelled by staff is spot on. Plus they are a good laugh, it's always a pleasure calling in. Thank you all.

Podlings Nursery is a fantastic childcare setting. My family and I recently relocated to the area. My daughter has settled in superbly. The staff are warm, welcoming and very friendly. The facilities are clean and homely.

My daughter hasn't picked up any of the usual skin infections associated with nurseries. Lunch is freshly prepared onsite. I am very happy with my experience of Podlings Nursery!

After reviewing numerous nurseries we found Podlings Nursery. We live 5 miles away and the nursery is in the opposite direction to my work. Finding the right nursery which satisfied my standards was very important and was a difficult decision. My daughter started Podlings Nursery at 19 months and now 3 years old and loves it. It is well organised and the safeguarding procedures are excellent. The hygiene and cleanliness are exceptional. My daughter is well looked after and engages in a variety of activities.

The staff are all welcoming and friendly. They listen and respond to our needs, such as supporting us to ensure her dietary needs are adhered to. The food offered is cooked on site, and we like that they engage in healthy activities such as promoting teeth brushing. We like the home atmosphere and have no hesitation leaving her at this nursery.

Both my children thoroughly enjoy going to Podlings Nursery. They learn a lot, especially my daughter, when she comes home from nursery she’s very excited to tell me what she’s done that day. They keep us fully informed of any changes that they notice with my children. The variety of food they have to offer is brilliant. I highly recommend Podlings Nursery!
