Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.826 for The Old Station Nursery, Innsworth is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.826

  • 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 3.708 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Old Station Nursery, Innsworth is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.208

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

Reviewer Connection to The Old Station Nursery, Innsworth

My son went into The Old Station Nursery at 8 months old and is now 30 months. I’m withdrawing him from the nursery, only because we have just moved 100 miles away. I’m so so gutted to have to take him from this nursery because he loves it. I seriously doubt that I’ll find another nursery of the same calibre near my new home. He has always been happy to go in and always has a great time. I’ve always had the impression that all of the staff genuinely enjoy what they do.

I can’t recommend this nursery highly enough.

This is a nurturing and caring setting where the children are well looked after and taken care of. They carry out a variety of different activities with the children each day including stories, cooking, painting and playing games outside.

The food provided seem very varied and lots of healthy options.

I am particularly impressed by the time taken by staff at collection to give me a thorough handover of what has happened - I particularly love the personal touch passing on assistance/things said. Highly recommend this setting. Love that they also have pets.

My daughter has attended Old Station for the last two years and my youngest has recently joined the baby room. I cannot fault this nursery. The staff are passionate and enthusiastic, they are always thinking of creative ideas to engage the children. The nursery really focuses on developing and encouraging the children, paying attention to next steps and supporting them to achieve these. Parents are kept fully engaged with their children's progress, through online journals and they are always open to feedback to improve the nursery further. The nursery offers varied and healthy meals which change seasonally. In addition, the nursery invests in extra-curricular activities such as tatty bumpkin yoga and cookery classes etc which further add to the children's enjoyment and development. It also actively encourages the children to get outside and explore the outdoors at every opportunity. Old Station is truly deserving of the recent outstanding rating.

The Old Station Nursery provides a warm, caring, safe environment for little ones. We have loved the staff and they have created a lovely dynamic amongst the children where they help and care about one another. The facilities are clean and bright, lovely outdoor space, and always a large variety of activities to keep the children engaged and learning.

My children have now attended The Old Station Nursery for over 5 years in total and I have always been caring, conscientious, pro- active and have really taken an interest in the happiness and development of my children. I have never had cause for complaint and from quite early on, myself and my children felt comfortable about them going to nursery - they have always had a good day and I have always received excellent feedback on their day from staff. My only issue was that I wasn't able to use government funded hours over 2 days but the fact that I overlooked this is a testament to this nursery and its excellent staff.

This is a first class nursery and I recommended without hesitation. Out two sons have been at this nursery since they were little and have received outstanding care. We as a family have been supported whole heartedly by management (manager is excellent) and by the most caring and devoted team of staff parents could wish for. They care for each child (and family) as individuals and always have their best interests at the centre of all they do. Outstanding thank you for everything we are sad to finish nursery life. Have recommended to several friends already without hesitation.

My child has come on in her development since (March) starting at The Old Station Nursery. She is a very happy child after a rocky start due to never being left with anyone. Myself as a mother am very happy with how my child has been helped to settle in and how the staff and management keep me updated and out of their way to help me.

My son has been attending the old station Innsworth since September 2015 we were a bit nervous at first with him going to nursery at two as with our first son we waited till he was three. The staff made us feel extremely welcome and at ease.our son has came on leaps and bounds and we are amazed by his speech. His key worker goes the extra mile and always does reviews and pictures on tapestry which we love seeing. The nursery is always clean and tidy and the staff always friendly the manager will also always pop out to say good morning . The only thing I would suggest is when new staff start the parents are informed presently so we are aware. Other then that I can't rate the old station highly enough if you are looking for a nursery that goes that extra mile this is the one!.
