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 4.842 for Hopscotch Day Nursery Lee-on-Solent is calculated as follows: ( (172 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 4.602 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hopscotch Day Nursery Lee-on-Solent is based on 10 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 16.6 positive Reviews (83 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 16.6 Target = 0.602

  • 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 Hopscotch Day Nursery Lee-on-Solent

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has been attending Hopscotch Day nursery since I returned back to work after maternity leave when she was 11 months old.
I chose Hopscotch in Lee partly because it was bright, clean, professionally run, and the menu looked healthy but sensible! The main thing though, was that I could see that the staff genuinely cared about the children. The children looked happy and content and I knew that my daughter would be getting cuddles while I was at work.
I am very pleased to say I made the right choice. My daughter has now been in the baby room, Waddlers room and is currently in toddlers. She LOVES it. The staff have always listened to any concerns and fed back regarding important milestones. My daughter is extremely fond of all the staff.
It is lovely to be able to go to work, and not just be guilt-free, but actually know that the time she spends at nursery is really helping her development. Well done Hopscotch at Lee! You are fab!

My daughter absolutely loves going to Hopscotch and gets really excited when I drop her off in the morning. She has been through the babies, waddlers and toddlers rooms since starting aged 9 months in September 2016 and each team of staff has been lovely and seem to really care about her. Staff have been very willing to discuss any questions I have about her development and progress during handover times. They provide a good range of foods at meal/snack times and a good range of activities through the day. I really enjoy the Tapestry updates and seeing what she gets up to when she is away from me.

The management team are also really approachable and great at answering any questions, both in person and via email.

I love this nursery!! Having recently moved to the area and returned to work full time I needed to make sure that my little girl would be well looked after. I knew that from having my walk around I wouldn’t be viewing any other nurseries. The staff are amazing and friendly. My daughter attends 3 full days a week and has breakfast lunch and dinner here which is all prepared fresh and she has something different every day which is what I want. She is always so smiley and happy when I collect her. I couldn’t have hoped for a better nursery.

The girls in the babies room are welcoming and reassuring every day. They are informative about the day my child has had and although they are always busy, they always have time to listen to me. The environment is of outstanding quality and I'm impressed that it is made to look inviting for the babies arrival. The menu is also of a high standard and my son is always happy with what is offered, especially pudding! The managers are also welcoming and always have time to chat. In my opinion, an outstanding nursery.

All three of my children have and are going to the nursery. I’ve always been satisfied that my children are well looked after and supervised. They always come home smiling and have had a good day.

My daughter is so happy at nursery. It has helped her to be very confident and she had learnt so much. The staff are always happy to help and seem to know her well as an individual. They have been very supportive with potty training, she sleeps and eats well whilst she is there. Really enjoy getting Tapestry updates. Thank you!

Both my two children have been to Hopscotch for 10 Months and they care for them like they are their own. Both have developed so well, and both are ready for school starting. Would thoroughly recommend.

A friendly, welcoming nursery with caring and professional staff. My children have thrived in this setting and their social, cognitive and physical development has been amazing.
The care they are shown and the nutritious food they are given is second to none. I cannot rate this nursery high enough.

From the moment we toured the nursery in 2016 I knew it was the perfect place for our daughter. As a nanny, I have trained and worked in a few nurseries and also cared for children in various nurseries. I knew what to look out for and Hopscotch really impressed me, and still do every day.
My daughter settled in really well thanks to the caring nature of their wonderful staff.
The food menu is varied and healthy.
The children have a huge variety of toys and activities and plenty of opportunities to use their imagination.
Our daughter particularly loves the nursery pets - fish, giant African snail and guinea pigs!
I’ll be very sad when we leave Hopscotch in a few months to start our journey with our local school.

My daughter loves coming to this nursery. The staff are so friendly and have such good relationships with the children. I feel so relaxed that she is safe and happy when I am at work. Her routine has been kept to by the staff and she has had amazing support with her potty training. She also eats better that I do!!! Very much recommended.

My son has been at Hopscotch at Lee on Solent for 6 months. Even though he only goes 2 days a week, he loves it. He has a strong relationship with his key worker and a positive relationship with all the staff. Always greeted with a friendly face when I collect him.

My son settled in well and most of the staff have been supportive. Issues have been resolved quickly and for the most part, the written recording of activities/incidents have been to a good standard. Management has been very good when dealing with minor issues and my son's key worker is a dream! Most of the pre-school staff engage well with my child and myself during handovers.

I have been using Hopscotch Day Nursery Lee-on-Solent for about 4 years for both my children. I have always felt that every member of staff looks after the children like they are their own. My children have always been happy to go and I think they really look forward to it because of all.the different things they get up to. They help in all different ways with behaviour, making new friends, eating different foods etc.

We have used Hopscotch Day Nursery Lee-on-the-Solent for a total of 6 years. Both of our children have loved their time there. Our youngest son currently attends and has the best time. He loves the activities they do. He also loves the food. He's well looked after and adores all of the ladies. He has made lots of friends too.
We enjoy receiving the updates through Tapestry.

My daughter has attended for 18 months and has really enjoyed making friends and taking part in fun activities. She has had a regular keyworker who has identified her strengths and new goals. All staff are enthusiastic and have taken the time to get to know my child as an individual. My daughter is always smiling when I collect her and she obviously has a close relationship with the staff. I have been very pleased with the care my daughter has received.
