Reviews

9.9 Sherborne House Pre-Reception has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.867)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Sherborne House Pre-Reception 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sherborne House Pre-Reception in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.867 for Sherborne House Pre-Reception is calculated as follows: ( (157 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 Sherborne House Pre-Reception is based on 15 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

My son absolutely loves Sherbourne House Pre-Reception. On mornings he doesn’t come here there is a visible sadness on his part. He really loved it here.

What is clear is that the teachers and key workers know all the children so well and are able to tap into their strengths building them up and making them confident children. They also identify areas that the children have less strength in and build on them. We have seen our son grow in confidence and I really regret not sending the older one to this pre-school when he was younger. The staff are brilliant. We are very lucky.

Great place - the child looks forward to going to school, now. He did a lot of progress and can say that his communication skills, as well as self-confidence, have improved greatly.
In fact, at home, he now gives us a daily dose of karaoke.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to Pre-Reception at Sherborne House School. The staff are excellent and it is clear they know each child individually. Time and time again they go the extra mile to provide the highest level of care for the children. It is a super mixture of more formally learning and play based activities, which provides the children with an excellent grounding before they go onto reception. I could not rate the staff and Pre-School highly enough.

An outstanding nursery, set within a wonderful school which our eldest child is thriving in. Our son has come on leaps and bounds since he started attending Sherborne House Pre-Reception. The staff are superb and create a fun and stimulating environment. They treat each child as an individual and dedicate huge amounts of time to nurturing them. Thoroughly recommended, no other setting locally comes close.

Sherborne House school offers a fantastic pre-reception/nursery setting. My child was able to identify letters, numbers and write his name after just a few weeks of being there. He had the most wonderful keyworker, who always put the children first and ensured they delivered the very best results. My child has a serious medical condition that requires a lot of assistance, the nursery engaged with the medical professionals to ensure his medication, Physio and restrictions were always adhered to. I would recommend this nursery to everybody. If you are looking for the very best setting, run by wonderful staff, then this is the one for you.

The nursery in Sherborne House School is simply wonderful. My child enjoyed her time there and she especially loved the staff. She always came home with a smile! The good thing about a school run nursery is that your child gets used to a school environment and gets to mix with older children. This is particularly helpful in settling into new school going routines. Sherborne House School Nursery understand these challenges for little ones. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent pre-school and my son loved his time there. He was happy and occupied building jigsaws puzzles, using construction blocks, singing songs and numerous other activities. The pre-school encourage the development of various skills like creativity and listening to stories and reading as well as physical development. It's a great place that really prepares kids for starting school.
The staff are welcoming and friendly. They clearly have a passion for spending time with kids and show they care for each child's individual need.

Lovely play/education setting for preschool age child. The small class sizes have enabled plenty of one to one attention on my child. The staff have been superb at settling my child as well as reassuring a worried mummy.
My child is stimulated and occupied well throughout the day, PE is a particular hit.
Several opportunities throughout the year for a parent to get involved at school too.
Respectful of parents views, safeguarding etc.

My son was so happy here, they have the right balance between having a structure to the day whilst not being too busy or overwhelming for little ones. It was great preparation for him starting in Reception this year having already looked at phonics, maths, literacy and P.E. The step into big school happened with ease.
I cannot praise the teachers enough, they are kind and caring and take the time to get to know the children and their individual needs.

A well organised and intimate setting in a beautiful surrounding. The pre-reception teachers are warming and my child responds well to them.
My son has only just recently started but is loving every minute and we couldn’t be happier.

Definitely worth a look!

I’ve been so thrilled with Sherborne House - my kids are so happy and can’t wait to go each morning. We do have trouble on Saturdays when it’s closed, they still want to go!

Very happy kids = great safe place to be.

This pre-reception was the perfect preparation for my child for Reception. Aside from starting to learn about musical instruments, numbers, mathematics, letters, writing, phonics for reading, my daughter had a lot of fun and participated in diverse activities. There was a perfect balance between learning and fun. My daughter’s interests and individuality were encouraged and I can’t wait for my number two to start.
