  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.798 for Princess of Wales Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (164 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.798

  • 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 Princess of Wales Day Nursery is based on 13 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). 13 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

The nursery provides fantastic care and education on a daily basis, my daughter surprises me daily with something new that she may have learnt, all of the staff seem genuinely driven in working towards the development of my little one, they tell you everything at the end of the day which I feel makes you feel a part of the time you’ve missed out on whilst at work. My little one cheers when she gets to nursery and she loves to get us involved in what’s going on at the end of the day when we pick her up, she is beaming to see ‘the girls’ (staff) and will often invite them to our house for tea, overall what a fantastic nurturing environment that my daughter thrives within, I can not thank the nursery enough,

Our son has attended this nursery for almost 2years since he was 7months. We feel very comfortable and relaxed taking him. Staff always greet us and our child with positivity and a smile. Our son adores the staff and talks about them all the time, even getting upset at the weekend when he can't go. Staffs passion, commitment and motivation, along with boundless energy means our son has made amazing progress and is so enthusiastic about learning and playing. The environment is a small, friendly nurturing place where children are seen as individuals and bonds with staff are strong and positive. We feel lucky to have such a wonderful place for our child's most important early years.
The range of activities is impressive and we love all the artwork that comes home and watching our son beam with pride when he shows it to us. Seeing your child excited to see a member of staff is the best recommendation that you as a parent can ask for. Simply wonderful nursery.

I recommend this nursery to all the parents for their kids. This is the first nursery my child had joined since she was 18 months old and we are satisfied with her progress and care at this nursery.
All the staff is very cooperative and understanding and they give you very clear and true picture of your child and communicate really well!

My little girl has been attending Princess of Wales Day Nursery since November 2017 and absolutely loves it! She wakes up excited to go every morning which is a massive relief for mummy who was very anxious and reluctant to leave her to go back to work. All the girls are amazing and really help bring her out of her shell. I can't wait to continue to see her learn and grow and it will definitely be the only nursery I will use for any future children too.

We absolutely love this nursery, our son who is 14 months, started when he was 7 months and he has received love, care and commitment from all the staff, they go above and beyond everyday! The nursery is colourful clean tidy and has a very welcoming atmosphere. My son is so happy to attend and when we pick him up he always has a big smile on his face this is so reassuring. His development has thrived thanks to the staff who are so encouraging. The staff are such a big part in my son's life their not just your standard carers they're much more! One big family, I am so grateful my son gets to be apart of a wonderful unit.

The nursery fill in a report sheet to let you know what activities your child has taken part in, how much food they have eaten, how many sleeps, nappy changes and who looked after them on that day. I haven't got a bad word to say about the nursery and the staff they are hero's in my eyes to see my son so happy and content I really cannot ask for more and I will forever be grateful!!

The staff at the Princess of Wales Day Nursery are extremely friendly, caring and approachable. My son has settled in well there and I am pleased and reassured to receive a feedback sheet at the end of every day which outlines all the fun activities my son has done during the day as well as his daily routine.
I am extremely happy with this nursery and can not recommend them highly enough.

Both of my children have attended this nursery.
My daughter currently attends and really enjoys it. She had made good relationships with the staff and had conversations with them about her life. My daughter had been challenged to learn and the nursery has a lovely approach to discipline, which is effective because the children have a good relationship with staff. My daughter participates in a wide range of activities which she enjoys when I collect her she always wants to show me what she has made.
Food is provided and my daughter is very enthusiastic about it!
I recommend this nursery to all my friends, the opening hours allow me to work with flexibility and my daughter is always happy to be left.

From the first time we visited the nursery we knew it was the right place for our sons. We have now been with the nursery for 4 years for both sons and they love it. The staff are all great, so friendly and caring. Our sons are constantly learning and developing all the time.
They are always doing exciting activities or cooking. And the meals are great too, with emphasis on healthy eating.

My twins have attended the nursery since they were 19 months old and are now 3.5. During this time they have been assessed and finally formally diagnosed with ASD. I cannot thank and praise the nursery staff here enough for their exceptional patience, kindness and support to my twins throughout this whole process and their ongoing support now. The staff go out of their way to improve their understanding of my twins' complex needs and always do their best to keep them happy, settled and occupied at the nursery, which is no small task with the sometimes challenging behaviour associated with their diagnosis. This includes some menu adaptations, introducing additional sensory play and really getting to know what works for the children so they gain the most they can from their time at nursery day to day.

My son has also attended the nursery since he was 7 months old and he is now almost 2. It has been a pleasure to really see him thrive at the nursery. He is so happy and content at nursery and that is most certainly a reflection of the kindness and care he is shown by the staff. He is always learning new things and the great communication between staff and myself means I’m always told when he’s really enjoyed a particular activity so that we can do it at home too. This carries into meal times too when I’m told about new foods he’s tried and really enjoyed. It is a real pleasure to drop a child at Nursery and (excluding the odd bad day here and there) see them run off excitedly and happily wave you off without any apprehension or upset. I don’t think a parent can ask any more than that. My son is my youngest of 3 children and they all attend the nursery here. I cannot praise it highly enough. I would recommend it to anyone.

The nursery is very flexible to our family needs. ALL staff provide a warm and welcome greeting. They keep individual development books and we are regularly invited to meet with keyworkers to be provided with feedback. They provide a range of fun learning opportunities for the little ones and I would highly recommend this nursery.

Well, what can I say? The staff have been very good with both of my children. My 2-year-old attends on a regular basis and my 8-year-old attends holiday club which they both enjoy. I can not thank the staff enough for all the care they give them. The staff are also very mindful when it comes to my youngest son's milk allergy. The onsite cook will adapt a meal that contains milk and change it to a dairy free option to make my son not feel left out to what other children are eating. I feel at ease when my children are under the nursery staffs care and have no worries when they are there. Thank you very much to all the staff. xx

My son has attended the nursery from 10 months of age and is now 3. The staff have always been fantastic and extremely flexible to provide me with childcare when needed. As I can work late due to the longer opening hours than most nurseries has been invaluable. My son settled in very quickly and has always seemed to enjoy his time at the nursery. I have clearly been able to see how his social and communication skills with others has developed as a result. Cannot recommend this nursery highly enough!
