The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.853 for Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (174 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.853

  • 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 Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School is based on 16 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 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 15.6 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.

Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School is a very well run nursery form top to bottom, we have sent both of our daughters here, so we have been coming the past 6 years. The facilities are very modern, the menus are continually refreshed and the staff are excellent.

They have a rating form Ofsted of 'Outstanding' and I can see why, good leadership and happy staff who stay for a long time, which says it all really.

We are so happy we found this nursery! The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly and the staff are wonderful. Because this nursery is family-owned with a serious emphasis on staff training and retention, the result is consistent care from staff with years of experience and love for their career. They really get to know your child and the parents which fosters a sense of security for the child and reassurance for us. My son loves the garden and all the staff. He was shy and clingy before starting nursery just over a year ago but has grown in confidence and enjoys attending and seeing the friends he has made. He recently moved to the pre-school and the transition was handled well so he has quickly adapted to the change. Leaving your child at nursery is so hard but seeing how much being at this nursery has benefited my son has made it much easier.

A fantastic team, they provide a great family feel to the nursery. A caring approach from all. Great setting with good provisions for all areas of learning. Staff are really the best feature for us, caring and nothing is too much to ask. Looking forward to their move to e-profiles it was the only area I feel needed updating.

My little boy has been at Mother Goose since he was 2, he's now 4 and a half. He loves it there and has made lots of friends. All the staff are amazing and really supportive. My son had delayed speech development which I was concerned about and with the help of the staff, he got the right support and has come on leaps and bounds! There are no longer any issues with his speech and thanks to all the hard work from the caring and committed staff, he has been signed off from the early support team. Management are very hands on and know all the children's names and always make time for parents. Just a brilliant nursery and pre-school, would recommend to everyone!

My 3-year-old son has only recently started and the girls that work at the nursery are amazing. My son has a hard time settling into new environments, but here they are making him feel so comfortable that he wants to go back. This puts my mind at ease knowing he is happy and in good hands.

The staff are very helpful, the management are approachable knowing all the children's names, they care about the children. My son has problems with his chest and has asthma and on one occasion he was taken to hospital, they all were concerned about him when he was rushed in, so mush so, one of the management even visited him in hospital, bringing him books to read. The nursery is special, family run and deserve being outstanding in their recent OFSTED report. Brilliant nursery would highly recommend to anyone, well done Mother Goose Corner Nursery!!!

We have been part of the Mother Goose Corner Nursery family for over 10 years now! We couldn't be happier with the care, education and personal touch that our children receive at Mother Goose. It's almost impossible to summarise in a short space why we love this nursery so much but I think it ultimately comes down to the staff. Without fail we are greeted with an enthusiastic smile and "Good morning". The whole team are confident, friendly and committed and genuinely care about the children as individuals. They always feedback how the day has gone and are always approachable and accommodating. They really are a home away from home and the thought that the Mother Goose chapter of our children's upbringing is almost over I find incredibly sad. I couldn't have hoped for a better setting for our children to attend. They deserve and have earned every bit of praise they receive. My oldest daughter even wants to work there when she finishes school!

Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School has been the most amazing nursery I have ever experienced. My daughter has been at this nursery since 6 months old and they not only have been an amazing support to both my daughter and I but have been such a huge and positive contribution to her growth. They are all very understanding, friendly, welcoming and will go above and beyond to help any way they can. My daughter loves going to nursery and has learnt so much at her time there. They make every child and parent feel important and will always give their time to listen and talk about anything. Mother Goose Corner Nursery & Pre-School is absolutely wonderful!

I have 2 sons at Mother Goose Corner and I am delighted with the nursery. The staff are so friendly and caring. When I come to pick my sons up the staff are always interacting with the children, unlike other nurseries I have visited where staff stand around and talk to each other. I really can't sing the praises of both the management and room staff highly enough; they are always smiling, will go out of their way to make sure the children are happy and provide a safe and friendly environment for the children to learn in. Both my boys love the food at the nursery and enjoy the healthy, homemade variety of food. The extension to the pre-school has transformed the space and provides a light and airy area for children to learn and play.I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a loving environment for their children to learn and thrive in.

This is a great nursery. They have been so patient with my little boy who can get a bit upset when it comes to the drop offs. He has come on leaps and bounds since being there. He eats a variety of food and is learning to use his manners better, he has the chance to play with lots of children with he really enjoys and loves talking to all the staff.

I have tears of JOY! We had to change schools for my son as the previous school was horrible. Mother Goose took my son with warm, loving, and open arms. The school change was like night and day for my son. Within the first month, I have noticed positive changes in him. He comes home singing or humming nursery rhymes. He has a keen interest in the alphabet! As a bilingual child, he's even picking up new words and talking away! These are all things that were not happening at the previous school. My son is a picky eater and I was thrilled when I was told recently he ate his whole entire plate of fish pie! At drop-off and pick-up, my son's carers always have a smile on their faces wanting to share my son's progress and willingness to work with him and me. They have welcomed my son as family and in turn my son is happy and progressing! We are sad to leave UK in a few months, mainly because we have to leave MotherGoose.
