Overview

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Mulberry Kindergarten 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mulberry Kindergarten in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.67 for Mulberry Kindergarten is calculated as follows: ( (195 Excellents x 5) + (86 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 285 Ratings = 4.67

  • 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 Mulberry Kindergarten 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 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 21 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.

9.1 Mulberry Kindergarten has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.146)

I absolutely love this nursery! From the first visit, we have been very happy with the staff and the facilities. My little girl loves going to nursery and has come on leaps and bounds since joining. Seeing how happy she is there makes it easier to leave her.
I cannot fault the nursery one bit.
We love all the staff.

Mulberry is a lovely nursery which makes everyone feel like part of the family.
I go to work confident that my daughter is well cared for with a fun-filled day ahead.
The staff are always friendly and professional.
I chose Mulberry for its high standards but mainly because it's so multi-cultural, celebrating cultural events throughout the year.

My son started at Mulberry at the start of the year and attends on a part-time basis. I was not keen to return to work or with the idea that he would have other people (who were at that point strangers) looking after him on a regular basis. The staff at Mulberry have been so kind since day one and have an excellent, approachable and kind manner. They made the transition of returning to work very easy for me and my child, having one hundred percent confidence in their ability to care, initiate development and nurture my child. My son loves the staff and they are knowledgeable of his own personality, likes and dislikes. I was actually viewing a nursery near to Mulberry when I saw its sign and then subsequently organised a visit. The process of finding a place and person you feel safe in leaving your child with is never an easy one but I couldn't be happier that I stumbled across Mulberry as its been the best decision I have ever made for my family.

With two older children, I have experienced other nurseries and Mulberry in comparison is of a very high standard. I have been so impressed at how quickly the staff have got to know my 10-month-old son and the attachments he has developed. They listen carefully and are very attentive to individual needs. The owner and all staff are kind, friendly people who are keen to help. They understand that working parents are busy and help reduce stress by, for example, having baby ready at pick-up time and being flexible to meet any additional requests. The nursery is a friendly, caring, upbeat and stimulating environment and my son is very happy there.

We are extremely happy with the level of care at the Mulberry Kindergarten. Our son has really enjoyed his care and has blossomed since he started at the nursery. We have total confidence in the team and know that they are lovingly caring for our son. The staff are very intuitive and understand our son's needs.

When my baby girl started nursery she was shy and reserved but after a few weeks in nursery she really came out of her shell. Having her singing along to nursery rhymes was the best sound I have ever heard.
She has progressed so quickly and is a lot more confident as she started walking after four weeks of being in nursery and is fearless at doing it.

An excellent nursery with great facilities. The activities with the kids really interest my son. My son praises the nursery and forest school and loves the outdoor play and themes.
He enjoys language (foreign) classes and day trips.

Ever since our daughter started nursery in February, the nursery has made great effort to ensure she adjusted and progressed well.
It's a pleasure to take her in each day and she is always greeted with lots of smiling faces and cuddles, you can tell they genuinely care.
The staff are great at focusing on your child's unique needs and try to ensure that home and nursery routines are consistent.
Their approach is very positive and child centred - which I love.
They have prepared my daughter to progress and integrate will into other nurseries.
I can't thank them enough.

I had a bad experience with another nursery, but bringing my son to Mulberry has been totally different. My son has settled wonderfully and the staff are fantastic. I can't praise them enough. They have exceeded my expectations and alleviated any issues I've had in the past. My son has com on leaps and bounds and the team all work so well together. They have done anything I've asked and more fantastic.

Though Mulberry is out of mu daily route but I would like my son to continue at this nursery because it's been an awesome experience for him being in the new country and new city. The staff helped him settle and took good care of him so as a result, he started loving this place and his friends very soon. I really like the different kind of activities kids are involved into all the time.

I really recommend Mulberry Kindergarten to everyone. I usually encourage all of my friends to join their kids for many reasons. The staff are friendly, the environment is really clean and suitable for all ages. I also can see the nursery improvement every year. When I drop off my child, I do not really worry about him because I know that he is a safe place.

Our son just joined the nursery and therefore we still don't have enough information to do a complete judgement in any case what we have seen up to date is great our son loves coming to nursery and enjoys it very much. Staff are friendly and supportive. Facilities are good. Something that would improve parents experience is having online information and pictures about activities of our children. We could connect from work during the day to know how they are doing.

I feel very happy dropping my son at Mulberry 3 days a week. He loves going each day and I am delighted with the level of care and support he recieves. His confidence has increased and I am very happy with the pace of learning. I also feel that he receives care on an individual basis and the nursery staff respond very well to whatever help or support he may need. I would not hesitate to recommend Mulberry nursery.

Mulberry Kindergarten has allowed me to feel confident that I am leaving my son in very capable hands. The staff never seem to find any of my requests too much bother and are more than happy to reassure me about leaving him. My son is never unhappy to be going to nursery and is always happy to see the staff. The activities that the children do are always fun but letting them learn at the same time.

Mulberry Kindergarten has such a nice and friendly atmosphere where the children like it and develop their ability in learning and improving different skills. They experience a lot of tasks and learn by playing, playing with others in a team, learn English, how to interact with others, and focus on the things they are interested in. The management are very good, they are thoughtful and encouraging for children. It is like the children's second home and that is reflecting the behaviour of the children in their daily communication.

I currently have my second child at Mulberry Kindergarten, she has been attending since she was 11 months old. Her elder sister attended from the age of 9 months until she left to attend school. Both my girls love this nursery. It is an excellent place and my daughters made lots of friends and fell in love with the staff. I am due to have another baby and when I return from maternity leave I will be sending the baby to Mulberry as I know they will love it as much as the rest of the family.

Excellent personal approach where staff are friendly and very helpful to both parents and baby. Have felt supported at every stage from settling in until now. Staff are keen to support an open atmosphere where parents can be involved. I love going to visit my little one at their end of the day in her play area and having the option to be a part of her play and learning. I couldn't commend this nursery more. My husband and I are so pleased with how happy and well our daughter is developing, growing and learning with the help and support of the staff there. Thank you.

Extremely pleased with the staff and key worker for my son. My son goes happily to the nursery and actually looks forward to it (he is just 14 months old). I get a daily report of the activities/food/feedback etc. A great nursery. I can rest assured on the well-being of my son when he is in the nursery so that I can focus on my work!!
