Reviews

6.7 Small Wonders Day Care Nursery has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.715)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery 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 Small Wonders Day Care Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.905 for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (76 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.905

  • 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 1.81 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 25 positive Reviews (125 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 25 Target = 0.120 , then divided by 2 = 0.060

  • 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 started in January and loves it here. He has come on so much much and continually chats about what he does at nursery and who he plays with. He has a great relationship with all the staff and calls them his friends. He is so happy would highly recommend.

My little boy has been here for 6 months and is currently in the baby room. He is so happy going in each day and he loves the staff that look after him each day and they provided excellent care and activities. The resources are outstanding and I believe it is excellent value for money. The learning areas are well equipped and are very clean. His learning journal is up to date and there is excellent communication from staff to me and my husband. I always recommend the nursery to anyone who is looking for a place and will continue to do so. This nursery is simply the best!!

I was initially worried about sending my son to nursery (as every mother is), I visited Small Wonders - Thatto Heath twice once with my child once without and was very happy. Since starting the staff have been very kind and shown me pictures of him playing after I have left which put my mind at ease. He is eating healthy snacks and has come along so much since being there. The staff also helped me with toilet training which was great. The room leader is particularly a favourite my son runs to her.

Small Wonders is a very good nursery. My child spent there 4 years of his life and I believe that he was well looked after and cared for. He has learnt a great deal, he can name 5 or 6 types of sharks, count to 40, write his name and recognises most letters. I think he is well prepared for school in September. Yes, he sometimes had his nose dirty and once he came back with his nose scraped when I asked for him to stay indoors, but if I wanted perfection then I should have stayed at home with him. Overall, the staff are attentive and my son treated some of them like family. I would recommend it to anybody and would send my second child there if I have one.

Total professionalism, dedication and teaching from all the staff in the 2 years my son has attended this nursery. My son loves this nursery, he has very much felt part of the Small Wonders family. The staff are fantastic and have been very supportive. He has learnt so much at this nursery and I only wish they had a primary school for him to attend next. As a parent the facilities and education have been outstanding. Thank you for educating my child and helping him on his way and allowing him to become school ready.

All members of staff are outstanding - my son is extremely happy here and he is developing rapidly under their care. Staff are very approachable and are keen to work with us and help our son develop. Very reasonable price and flexible, I work shifts and the staff are very accommodating with this. Most importantly I feel my son is always safe, happy and having fun whenever he is at Small Wonders. Excellent facility that I would recommend to friends and family
