Reviews

9.3 Best Childcare Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.250)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Best Childcare Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Best Childcare Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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 4.583 for Best Childcare Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Best Childcare Nursery is based on 8 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.667

  • 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 provides a variety of activities for the children through play.
Children are taught a variety of languages to expand their understanding and vocabulary.
The Forest School adaptation is excellent to interlink the outside world to learning experiences.
Staff are great with the children and getting parents involved with the 'parent station'.

I couldn't be happier with the care my daughter gets at Best. The staff are caring, kind, fun and fantastic role models.
The kids get to experience the local park, library and other local sites.
There's a good variety of facilities but it's the staff that makes it the best.

Best Childcare provides my child with the most amazing experiences that I can wish for. Her needs are paramount to the running of the nursery and they strive to have fantastic relationships with the families. It really is like having new members of the family to look after our beautiful little girl. We definitely made the best choice choosing the best!

As an extended member of the family to the child who attends nursery, I always feel extremely welcomed and know every single staff members names. I have been invited to join in with special play sessions where my niece has explored many amazing experiences, including baking, cafes, gardening, fires in the garden and storytelling in boats!

After visiting 5 other nurseries we were very happy with our decision to put our daughter into Best Nursery. They have a forestry school ethos taking the children out regularly and teaching the children about their natural surroundings. They have music education, drama and dancing every week as well as healthy vegetarian meals. The staff are always smart, caring and conscientious when it comes to all the children and were more than happy to accommodate any special requirements you ask for which they have done with us.
Our daughter comes home every day with something new she has learnt from Best.

I cannot recommend Best Childcare Nursery highly enough. My daughter has been going there for almost 2 years. The management is outstanding and set the standards incredibly high. They are so professional and caring and passionate about the children and their learning. Every day there are lovely activities for the children to enjoy and explore, including external activities out and about their local community. The management ensure their high standards are understood and correlate with great care of the children. Thank you!

Our boys are very happy here and always have been since they both started aged 9 months. They cheer in the morning about going to nursery and often don't want to leave in the evening. The quality of teaching in a fun and engaging way is excellent, both boys are developing strong numeracy and phonics. The regular walking trips out from nursery to visit local parks/library/temple/building sites etc are always a highlight.
