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 4.813 for Children's Place Barkerend is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 4.492 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Children's Place Barkerend 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.492

  • 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 and now my daughter come to the nursery. They all love the teachers and the staff are really friendly, both towards the parents and the children. My daughter enjoys herself at nursery and at the end of the day, it's a struggle to take her home. We are very pleased that she attends here.

My experience is quite good. My child has been there for approximately one and a half years. He is very happy there. He has speech problems and teachers help him a lot. He also has behavioural issues, so they all deal with my child in a very good way. I am happy with the staff and manager as well. They help me a lot in various ways.

I picked this nursery because a friend sent all of her children here and she highly recommended it. I love this nursery but more importantly my son loves. It. The staff are amazing, they genuinely love what they do and this is evidenced in how they interact with the children. When I pick my son up I always get a full rundown of what he has done in the day. They feedback includes the things he has enjoyed learned and eaten. When they are giving me feedback they include my son so he feels a part of it. It’s these little touches that make Children’s place Bakerend an outstanding nursery.
I have seen my son develop from a shy little boy into a confident little man, and Children’s place has played a big part in this.
If you are thinking of sending your children to this nursery, you won’t be disappointed.
