Reviews

9.4 Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.413)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Selly Oak Tree Day 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 Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.857 for Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.857

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery is based on 5 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.556

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

We are so glad we chose this nursery. My two daughters settled extremely quickly. Staff are very caring and attentive. The development in my girls is amazing. The food is cooked fresh by a fantastic lady who has designed great winter and summer menus which provide a varied menu, nutritional and delicious. The outside space has been redesigned lately and the kids are very happy from the gazebo to the 'mud' kitchen. The management team are great and the team leaders and nursery staff do a wonderful job. We can go to work knowing our girls are well taken care of. This a family run, supportive and all round excellent educational facility for babies, toddlers and pre-school. We would highly recommend this nursery.

Thank you, What a lovely review. It's fantastic to hear such positive comments.

We have been thoroughly delighted with the care given to our little girl at Selly Oak Tree since she started last year. All members of staff are warm and friendly, and take a great deal of care to build excellent relationships with the children and their family members. Our daughter loves her days spent at nursery and has come on leaps and bounds. I am confident and happy that she enjoys and learns from every activity organised during her day as well as ample free play and time in the garden, and have also been impressed with the number of trips and other organised activities, some of which parents can attend. She is well cared for and staff are always available to discuss the day, key activities, developments and any concerns at all. Nothing is too much trouble and always dealt with professionally and efficiently. We could not have hoped for a better nursery. Thank you to everyone at Selly Oak Tree!

Thank you very much, as a nursery we strive to provide high quality child care and education. It means a lot to us and our team to know you and your family are happy.

Lovely family run nursery with friendly and welcoming staff. Very clean. Great facilities, especially the newly renovated garden space with zoned play areas. We will be sad to leave when our son starts school. Our son has really enjoyed his time there.

Thank You for your kind words and encouragement. Good Luck on your new adventure.

I am so pleased with the level of care this nursery has given my daughter. The staff are very friendly and approachable, and I have no doubt that my daughter is being well looked after. The setting itself is beautiful, with well laid out rooms, lots of excellent resources and a fantastic garden area for the children to explore in all weathers. The children are given healthy and nutritious meals every day with parents given the opportunity to suggest meals that they would like to see on the menu too. I would highly recommend this nursery to anybody who wants top quality care, learning and support for their children.

Our LO was in the nursery from Baby Room to Pre-School and it felt like a second home. The nursery is family run, in a well maintained large house with parking within the compound and a buggy park, handy for the drop offs. We have had to request many additional days care due to unforeseen circumstances, thankfully the nursery was very flexible with our needs. The home cooked food menu looked delicious, LO got to try all sorts from curries, kedgeree to risottos, the recipes were developed with suggestions from parents. Last summer the preschoolers were kept busy with a sports day and local outings. LO was very happy there.

Staff are lovely and attentive to children's needs. The nursery is clean and safe. There are loads of activities play available to the children. My daughter looks forward to going to nursery because I think it's like a home away from home for her. I would recommend this nursery .

I was really anxious at my daughter starting nursery at 9 months old. She is my 3rd child but had never had to send my other two to nursery, the staff were excellent and completely understood my fears and did anything they could to allay my fears. Everything here is geared around the children. There is a specially designed kitchen suited perfectly to the children with an onsite cook who cooks excellent variety of healthy food for the children, my daughter is so bright and this is due to the help from the nursery helping me to build stable foundations for her to build on in her new school. My daughter attended this nursery for just under 3 years, was extremely happy here and we will all miss it dearly. I would highly recommend this nursery. I felt that my daughter was most importantly safe, cared for, interacted with and very very happy. Just take a visit and look around I guarantee you will love it. (They also have a tailored garden to suit all children).
