Reviews

9.8 Children's Place Spring Cottage has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.773)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Children's Place Spring Cottage is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children's Place Spring Cottage in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 4.773 for Children's Place Spring Cottage is calculated as follows: ( (208 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.773

  • 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 Children's Place Spring Cottage is based on 22 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 22 Reviews ÷ 10.6 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.

Fantastic nursery, my son loves it. The staff are brilliant and give regular updates on how your child is developing. He has gone from a clingy shy boy to a confident little toddler. Would definitely recommend this nursery.

Mt daughter has happily attended Spring Cottage since she was 1 year old. Soon she will leave to start school. I think she is a confident and happy young girl. Nursery has helped her develop social skills and taught her to share. Nursery provides her with opportunities and experiences which I cannot give her at home. I think she has thrived at nursery and this is a great start for school and education.

Overall good nursery my son loves coming and adores his key worker who has worked very closely with my son.
With regards to development, it would be lovely if she was able to spend more time with preparing the 3-4-year-olds for school.

My daughter attends 2 days per week, she really enjoys going. Everyone is really friendly and she has grown in confidence over the last 3 years that she has been attending. She will be leaving in September to start school but I am confident that the skills that she has learnt at nursery have given her the best possible start

Spring Cottage is a friendly nursery, my son enjoys his days here. He attends nursery 3 days a week and looks forward to it each week. On the way home he tells me all the games and activities he has done each day, he is always really happy and excited.
The nursery is clean, the food is varied a lot so my son enjoys different food and the garden area is amazing. Thank you, Spring Cottage. I will be sad when he leaves for school.

We have always been very happy with the staff, interaction and experience that our son has had in the past few years. The parents evenings are proof that the time he spends here is educational, energetic and fun. The nursery has played a huge part in his development and personality. They have instilled in him good qualities that extend into his home life.

My grandson has attended Spring Cottage as an emergency place on several occasions. He constantly asks if he can visit the nursery and talks about the exciting activities he has been doing. He especially likes to play outdoors filling and pouring from the tap using watering cans and the funnels and pipes available. I would strongly recommend this nursery to prospective parent.

Both of my children have now attended this nursery and I could not be happier with the care and learning opportunities they have received. My two-year-old attends nursery twice a week and thoroughly enjoys his time here. He has both indoor and outdoor learning opportunities and does something different every day. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and genuinely care about all of the children and their learning needs. I can't thank them enough for making my child's nursery experience a positive one.
