Reviews

6.9 Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Stratford upon Avon has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.901)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Stratford upon Avon 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Stratford upon Avon in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.0 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.881 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Stratford upon Avon is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.881

  • 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 2.02 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Stratford upon Avon is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.290 , then divided by 2 = 0.145

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

Sadly we were only here for a couple of months short due to a house move, but my Son absolutely loved it. He couldn't wait to get through the door in the morning, and much to my embarrassment ....never wanted to leave! The staff were so friendly and kept his busy mind occupied with role play and activities. He even had weekly French lessons and has come away being able to count up to ten and with a good range of basic vocab. He is so keen now to learn more. I am over the moon! I just wish we didn't have to go. Thank you Monkey Puzzle!

My son has been at Monkey Puzzle for almost 6 months. He has additional needs and has one to one funding for 15 hours. The staff have been amazing with my son and also with my husband and myself. From where my son was 6 months ago to where he is now, is astonishing, and we can't thank the staff there enough for their care and dedication through this journey. Well done Monkey Puzzle, you have made such a huge difference to our lives.

Many thanks for the review and all your incredible support while you have been at Monkey Puzzle. It is very much appreciated and we are so delighted that you are pleased with the way things have progressed over the last 6 months

Regards

Stuart and the Monkey Puzzle team

This nursery has very good facilities. All staff are very happy and seem to really enjoy their work. Freshly cooked meals are provided. My child loves his time there. They do many activities and always have things happening which makes his time there very interesting. I think they provide a lovely environment for little ones to play in. I can't find any faults at all. I can't speak highly enough of this nursery.

I highly recommend this nursery. My son has been attending from the age of 10 months and has always been very happy here.
The team is fantastic. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and offer great communication.
Lots of activities and learning opportunities for the children. Great food as they have a chef on site.
The nursery always welcomes feedback and seems to continue to strive to achieve more.
We looked at several nurseries in the area and definitely choose the right one!

My daughter has attended this nursery for over a year and we could not be happier. The wonderful staff at Monkey Puzzle create a warm and welcoming home from home, and have a fantastic attitude, seeing children as individuals and supporting learning and developing at the child's own pace, rather than following a strict checklist in a book approach, which we have unfortunately experienced with other local nurseries. The facilities and food are fantastic and I have great confidence in leaving my daughter in the capable care of this lovely nursery.

My son joined the nursery three years ago and my daughter 20 months old also attends. Both of my children love going and have developed lovely bonds with the staff there. As parents my husband and I couldn't be happier with the love and care shown to our babies and as an early years teacher myself I know my children are experiencing an outstanding learning environment. Them monkey puzzle staff are friendly and very creative, providing wonderful activities for all of the children.

Excellent nursery with dedicated staff. We have both children in this nursery and have been with them for 4 years. We have never been let down or had any reason to believe that they are getting anything but the best nursery care and attention. Children are encouraged to be polite, inquisitive and kind to others. There is just the right balance between discipline and encouragement. Each child has a dedicated nursery nurse who manages their development and keeps us parents informed of our child's progress and needs. They are also very flexible when it comes to changing dates around to accommodate holidays or other family commitments.
