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 4.458 for Hungry Caterpillar Pre-School - Stanmore is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.458

  • 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 3.52 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hungry Caterpillar Pre-School - Stanmore is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7.4 positive Reviews (37 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.4 Target = 0.270

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

This nursery is amazing! The staff are second to none and go out of their way to accommodate the kid's needs. My son has special needs and has been integrated into the nursery so well with a gradual approach, so much so he looks forward to going in every day and talks about his friends on a daily basis! He is very happy there and that makes us as parents extremely confident with him being there. Having had both my sons in a previous nursery, there is simply no comparison. I would (and do all the time) recommend Hungry Caterpillars Stanmore without any hesitation to anyone considering a pre-school placement.
