Reviews

9.1 Four Seasons at Skypark has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.121)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Four Seasons at Skypark is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Four Seasons at Skypark in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 16 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 4.454 for Four Seasons at Skypark is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (80 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.454

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Four Seasons at Skypark is based on 16 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 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.667

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

Very friendly and fun orientated nursery. I moved 3 children from another nursery due to space issues. They've loved Skypark, loads of room, great menus and fresh fruit.
They nurture the children's imagination.
There is minimal outdoor space but an indoor garden which they use almost daily.
Only downside is the limited time they spend outdoors, could look at using local parks.

Overall the nursery is very good, with modern and clean facilities. One of the limitations is how daily reports are communicated back to parents via a handwritten notebook. If an online portal system were adopted, updates, as well as daily pictures, could be shared with both parents.
Regarding the management, there have been various transitions lately and it's not always clear who is the acting manager. Clear communication and sharing of images or the use of names tags could improve this.

Amy Quayle, Online Marketing Manager at Four Seasons at Skypark responded to this review on 19 Jan 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery. We are glad that overall you find that the nursery is very good, however, we understand your concerns.

Our daily feedback is noted in individual daily diaries and this contains lots of information regarding the child’s day including nappies/toileting, meals and snacks, sleeps as well as personal progress and activities which each child participated. Unfortunately, we currently do not have access to an online portal which would enable parents to view photographs of their child and updates on their day. We are looking into this facility for parents and ensuring that any solution is secure enough to publish children's information. Until then, our 'Children’s Learning Journeys' are always available for parents and these contain photographs and updates on their monthly development within the nursery as well as their next steps for progression.

We have been through a transition in management, however, our Acting Manager, who has worked at our Spectrum Day Nursery for over 15 years. All information regarding the changes were communicated to parents through our monthly newsletter. The manager did try to introduce herself to as many parents as possible during the first few weeks within Skypark Nursery. Apologies if you were not aware of this change, She will hopefully have the opportunity to meet with you over the next few days to clarify the situation.

If you have any questions, however, we always operate an open door policy and would welcome you to pop in to see the manager or any member of the management at any time.

We hope to see you in nursery soon.

Great nursery, lovely staff, wonderful facilities. Very happy with how my daughter has progressed here. They took the time to help her settle in beautifully and she now enjoys her time there.

The staff take very good care of my child. The food has improved a lot since Asquith took over, however, a hot evening supper would be a nice addition. The learning journey shared by my daughter's key person was very detailed and very nice to see her in action.
Our only requests would be a few more outdoor trips (however, we can appreciate this is not always feasible) and a bit more proactive communication (e.g open days, available paperwork) especially surrounding the recent care commission review - which was glowing.

I'm happy with my daughter's nursery experience. The only concern I have is that a lot of my daughter's friends seem to be leaving.
Apart from that, my daughter is very happy here and loves the staff, activities and food.
I'm hoping the fees don't increase again.

We are very happy with the care that my child receives at nursery. The staff are all very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The activities, resources and food are all excellent. The only problem we have had in the past was the way that biting was dealt with. This is no longer a problem thankfully, but we felt that the management team could have approached this in a better way.

I love this place. Staff are so helpful and caring and my boy has the most wonderful key worker and other staff looking after him. He was transferred from a sister nursery and settled in almost immediately. The location is very easy to get to and the place itself is bright and spacious with lots of space for mental and physical activity. The best move ever made. No regrets.

Everyone at Four Seasons is super friendly. Our 19 month old daughter really likes all of the staff. We love when she comes home and shows us a new dance move (or similar) that she has learned at nursery.
There's nothing worse than the thought of our daughter being distressed as she goes into nursery every morning, but this is not the case - she walks in excited, takes their hand and waves me off. Our daughter must love it here.

My daughter absolutely loves nursery. She has a meltdown at the weekend when she is told she isn't coming.
There is so much for her to do and never wants to come home.
We love this nursery, it's the best one we've been to.

Overall excellent nursery. Children both extremely happy.
Couple of issues:
1, I am concerned that my 3 and a half year old will not be "challenged" as much as he should be as a lot of his peer group have left and he is in a much smaller and younger class than I would like.
2, Afternoon tea is very variable. Please provide hot options where possible. Things such as "cold meat platters" are not sufficient and poorly received by children.

Amy Quayle, Online Marketing Manager at Four Seasons at Skypark responded to this review on 04 Jan 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery. We do understand your concerns and would like to take this opportunity to respond to those concerns.

Currently, as you say, the room is quieter than our other rooms with 12 children on our busiest day that your child attends. However, staff ensure that all children in the room are challenged in their learning and that their education and social needs are met throughout the day.

Conversely, the reduction in numbers means that your child's key worker can meet your child's needs better, spending more one to one time, enabling a stronger relationship and therefore being able to plan individually for their needs in line with their interests.

All meals served within the nursery are enjoyed by all children and when a cold tea is served there is always a hot lunch that day. Menus are created by our catering team who have diligently researched the nutritional value of each day's menu, ensuring that children are getting everything they need, including at least 5 fruit and vegetables a day among other nutritional goals.

Of course, as we have an open door policy, we would welcome for you to pop in and discuss any aspect of your child's care with us so that we may formulate a stronger care plan together.

What a fantastic nursery! The security of the nursery is excellent there was no way anyone who was not known to staff was getting into the nursery. I collected my niece from the nursery for the first time this week and was extremely impressed not only with the fantastic environment but also with the knowledge the staff had on her and the obvious enthusiasm for the children. The staff chatted with me about all the great things she did during the day with her and the meals sounded great, I would love to eat here! I am really impressed with this nursery I only wish I had sent my son here when he was younger.

We looked at a lot of nurseries prior to settling on this one. Skypark stood out as being clean, bright and professional. So far our baby has settled in easily and staff are always helpful and engaged with her. We hope this is the start of a long relationship.
