Reviews

6.9 Scribblez Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.870)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Scribblez 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Scribblez Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.87 for Scribblez Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 2 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Scribblez Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.250 , then divided by 2 = 0.125

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

The nursery is well run, has a large variety of activities which helps my daughter to learn as she grows. I am always kept informed of how my daughter is doing as well as things that are happening at the nursery. They provide healthy and interesting meals which my daughter enjoys and I am very happy with this.

My child chas been full time since his start in May and has recently moved up from the baby room. I have nothing but praise for all the staff involved in caring for my child. They are all fantastic and I include those that make the wonderful food too. The settle period was good and I felt supported and that those looking after my child really loved what they do.

Scribblez Day Nursery is a lovely Montessori led nursery. Our daughter has been coming here since she was 1. She is now 2.5 They have lots of play equipment, outdoor play hut, and bicycles to encourage outdoor play activities. They allow children to explore blackboard painting with water, watering plants etc. Indoors they have 2hrs a day of Montessori letting the children work out puzzles through play. Learning days of the week, reading, dancing, dressing up and interacting with younger and older children too. Our daughter has a lot of confidence in playing and interacting with other children as she is an only child. Staff/facilities are very friendly, clean and ensure them 'children' have a good healthy start in a 'school' environment.

My son's key workers have been really supportive with potty training, he can sometimes leave it a little late to tell them when he needs to go. Lots of praise has helped and improved his confidence.

Our daughter has gained such confidence over the last few months and we really feel that the staff at Scribblez have played a huge part in this. She loves going to nursery and hardly gives a backward glance when we drop her off in the mornings, we couldn't ask for more really! A happy, confident child that enjoys every minute there!

This is a fantastic nursery, which provides outstanding care and attention for the young children who attend.
My daughter loves going to Scribblez and genuinely adores the staff who work with her. As a parent, I am always kept fully informed about all aspects of her day and feel confident that the team always go above and beyond what can reasonably be expected to ensure that she is happy, safe, stimulated and secure. I am delighted by the provision and have no hesitation in recommending it to others!

This is a great nursery with fantastic staff. My daughter loves nursery days and happily sends me on my way to work with a cheery "bye, bye mummy" in the morning. They get alot of fresh air which is fantastic - she loves the outdoor play area, mixing with the older children and playing in the sand pits. Overall I am very impressed with the quality of the staff, the food (all home-made on the premises), the activities they do and the facilities.

I am very relieved to have found somewhere I can leave my daughter when I work and feel confident that she is being well looked after.

Our 2 1/2 year old daughter has been attending Scribblez since she was 3 months old. We have been entirely happy with her progress during this time. She is very happy and settled. All the staff that care for the children and the management team are brilliant. Their warmth and affection towards the children is comforting for us as parents. Scribblez uses Montessori teaching methods which we feel has suited our daughter perfectly. All the meals are freshly prepared on site and the chef does a fantastic job of coming up with well balanced and nutritious meals and snacks. We would highly recommend Scribblez.
