Reviews

9.2 Enchanted Forest Nursery, Erskine has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.224)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Enchanted Forest Nursery, Erskine is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Enchanted Forest Nursery, Erskine in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.748 for Enchanted Forest Nursery, Erskine is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.748

  • 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 4.476 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Enchanted Forest Nursery, Erskine 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 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.476

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

My son has been very happy here, attending since he was 6 months old. The staff team are incredible, unbelievably motivated, positive and full of energy. I am always impressed with the nursery's responsiveness, home engagement and a strong focus on outdoor play. My son is always so excited and happy after a day spent at nursery and he has developed so much in the time he's been there - in large part thanks to the nursery.

Thank you for taking the time to provide such a positive review. We will share this with our team, we are delighted to be involved in your son's ongoing development.

The nursery staff are always welcoming and friendly. The children always appear happy and are engaged in a range of activities. The nursery seems to value staff development as they promote outdoor learning and have a focus on speech and language development within the rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review, your comments are very much valued and it is great to see the learning opportunities you have recognised that we have on offer. Thank you.

My son has been going to this nursery since he was 10 months, he will be 4 this year and I am very pleased with his progress from the help and support of all the staff. Even speaking with parents and involving parents in songs of the week, themes etc very well communicated with all that is going on within the nursery. I also love that on dry days the children are taken into the garden to play outdoors which is fantastic not to be cooped up inside all day, go on walks and get plenty of fresh air. The staff are very friendly and caring and support any requests ie toilet training, behaviour and are happy to keep routines that as a parent you have in place. It can get very busy in the "big room" but I think this is good to see how my son copes as when he goes to school the room will be at least 20 or more so will learn to settle in a busy environment.

We are pleased that you have recognised our efforts in ensuring our children access the outdoors, as this is an important part of our philosophy. We will pass on your feedback to our team.

A brilliant place where the staff are extremely helpful and are brilliant with my child. I feel completely happy leaving him there when I go to work and know he is safe and being looked after. They go out of their way to get to know your child and their likes and dislikes. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review about your son's time with us. We are delighted that you have recognised that the values we have to permeate the care our team deliver. We will pass on your feedback to our team. Thank you

Our daughter has been attending the nursery in Erskine since June. We had looked at many different nurseries in the area prior to selecting Enchanted Forest.

The reason why we did select this nursery was based on the very warm welcome ourselves and our child got during our initial visit and the fantastic facilities and opportunities provided for the children attending the nursery.

Every day my child is happy to go into the nursery and shows a huge amount of affection towards her key workers. This really reassures me how much the children are cared for during their days in the nursery.

I am updated daily on my child's activities and I am always very satisfied with the variety of experiences and opportunities to learn that my daughter has through the nursery.

Thank you for taking the time to review Enchanted Forest, Inverkip. It means a lot to us and our team that you have taken the time to provide us with this feedback. We are delighted that you are happy with the level of care, learning and services we provide to your little girl. It means a lot to us that you feel reassured that your daughter is happy with us. We will share your comments with our team, they will be delighted. Thank you.

My son has been in EFN Erskine since he was 20 weeks old (he's almost 3). It was really important to me have him somewhere I absolutely trusted especially as he was so young. The team are fantastic and he has thrived being there on all levels. I receive regular updates about what's going on, planned activities and upcoming themes. I valued the daily log when he was in the smaller room and I like to get a handover when I pick him up. He's been through potty training with the team which was a breeze and it was nice to see his reward chart in the toilets. I am comfortable with security as his grandparents have been challenged for the password despite my son recognising them and the door policy is great (only staff to let people in). I could write much more however in short, I made the absolute best choice for my son and I have always recommended EFN to friends.

Thank you for taking the time to provide such detailed feedback about Enchanted Forest Erskine. We will pass on your comments to our team. It is important to us that parents feel they have made the right choice in choosing us, so thanks again.

My son loves it here, he comes home every night desperate to tell you what he has done today. It really is peace of mind knowing that he is well looked after and has such a good time. The staff have been really supportive with me trying to get him to eat a wider selection of food. We introduced hot lunches, although he is reluctant to try new foods the staff have been an amazing help by encouraging him to eat his lunch just like his friends.

My son has attended since he was 10 months old he is now 4. I am very happy with my choice of Nursery, they go beyond the call of duty for the children. My son enjoys every moment he spends there, and now he his older enjoys telling me about his day. The staff and management are friendly and approachable, and most importantly for me the relationships they have with the children are great. I couldn't ask for anymore.

My son has been going to the nursery since July 2014 at 10 months old. I've watched him flourish into a bright, articulate little toddler who enjoys his time at the nursery. I have visited the nursery and spent time seeing what the staff do and I can only praise the hard work they do. They make every effort to get parents involved and keep us up to date with the children's progress. I'm pregnant with my 2nd and I will definitely use Enchanted Forest again for this baby. They have helped us during difficult timed and their flexibility with changing days has helped too.
