The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Plas Gogerddan Nursery Gogerddan Childcare Ltd 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Plas Gogerddan Nursery Gogerddan Childcare Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.93 for Plas Gogerddan Nursery Gogerddan Childcare Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (187 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 201 Ratings = 4.93

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Plas Gogerddan Nursery Gogerddan Childcare Ltd is based on 10 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target Reached = 1

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

Can't recommend Plas Gogerddan Nursery Gogerddan Childcare Ltd enough. Wonderful, caring, professional staff who always go the extra mile. Nothing is too much trouble and it's such a lovely atmosphere. Small, nurturing environment with great facilities and outside space. The gold standard of nursery care.

My son has been at Plas Gogerddan for two months by now and he settled so well initially, though as is normal with babies, he is a little bit more clingy by now. That said the staff do settle him quickly if he does become upset as we leave him. Nothing seems to be too much of a bother for the staff as they aim to stick to our routine as much as possible (sleep times etc) which is great for him and for us too. A little disappointed that we have to pay more for a meal, but on the whole, the standard of food given is very good, so it doesn't bother us that we have to pay the additional fee.

The staff at Plas Gogerddan go to enormous effort to develop ways and means of encouraging children's development alongside the current curriculum for doing so. They are creative and inventive, safety minded at all times, resourceful and positive always. I don't think the Managing Director stops for breath sometimes as she relentlessly wants to keep improving the ways we connect with children to develop them. The nursery challenges boundaries in a responsible manner bringing out the best in all.

My child has completed an excellent two years with Plas Gogerddan and every week she couldn't wait to go again.
The staff are extremely caring, dedicated and would go out of their way time and again.
The facilities are very good, the outdoor space is especially excellent, providing so many chances to get the children into the open air moving around. The recent development of the woods area for their 'Forest School' in particular is a great asset and my child's confidence has grown in leaps and bounds as result of these sessions.
Can't recommend this nursery and the manager and the team highly enough.

As a first-time mum, I was nervous of going back to work and leaving my child in a nursery however Goferddan Nursery went above and beyond to make the transition as smooth as possible for our family. We had unlimited "settling in" sessions, slowly increasing in time and helping our child get used to the environment, staff, eating habits, new cot for naps. After every visit we had less to worry about knowing that our child was happy with the key worker and other staff. On top of this the nursery provided detailed information about the nursery and staff and gave me a "first-day survival kit" including Chocolate, tea and tissues and told me to phone anytime to ask how my child was settling. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. It is a great environment for my child to play, learn and develop.

This month was my son's first month at nursery and my first month back at work and I am extremely grateful to the staff at Gogerddan for making the transition as smooth as possible. My son is welcomed with open arms and cheerful faces each morning and the staff quickly realised what activities he enjoys, and indulges him in them. One of his favourite things is to look at animals. Gogerddan has a pet rabbit (Roger) and my son is regularly taken to see him. He has books and music around him all day and always comes home happy.

This is without a doubt the best nursery in the area. The staff are always friendly, enthusiastic and very professional. Our daughter has loved her three years in their setting. At no time have we worried about her. The experience and adventures they have provided have been amazing. Their commitment to caring, learning and outdoors can be highly commended.

I have been really happy with the service our family has had from the nursery. My children have been attending the nursery for the last six years! this review relates to my daughter who has been attending the nursery for the last 2-3 years. She has been very happy there. The manager has been very supportive with her special educational and care needs. The staff who support my daughter have been lovely, very caring and supportive of her needs. The nursery is clean, great toys, provides great educational learning activities, and a lovely outdoor space where they spend lots of time.

Excellent nursery, best in the area in my opinion. Great outside space and brilliant learning opportunities. Will miss the staff there, as my son has left for school.

I have had two daughters attend the nursery since the age of 8 months through to beginnings primary school. I have always had every reassurance that my children were being cared for 100% and more. They have both thrived in the positive and nurturing environment that is provided. The staff are amazing and very dedicated to giving children the best care and experience. I would recommend this nursery to any parent.

My child has spent 3.5 extremely happy and settled years at Gogerddan nursery. The facilities are fantastic (particularly the outdoor space and setting) and the staff are incredibly thoughtful, innovative, caring and utterly professional. The experiences that they gave my son were incredibly varied and well devised and ranged from professional visitors bringing in sealife and animals, using computers, craft activities to looking after fish and rabbits to trips away to farms, soft play and taking the bus to the beach, right through to woodland craft and building dens and walks in the countryside. As a parent I don't feel that I could have provided my child with anywhere near the range of stimulating activities that this nursery has organised. What an amazing foundation they have provided for him as he now moves on to school. Thank you to all the amazing staff and the superb Management at Gogerddan Nursery.

My son has been at this nursery since he was about 18 months old (he is now 3). He has thrived at this excellent nursery which has provided care that I could not be happier with. He has been stimulated with activities indoors and in a wonderful outdoor area, and he has had quiet time, free time, food time, all in just the right proportions. He has always been happy to go to nursery and if he wasn't tired he would not want to leave!
