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 4.939 for Hopscotch Day Nursery Botley is calculated as follows: ( (170 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.939

  • 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 4.208 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hopscotch Day Nursery Botley 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 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 24 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.

Excellent nursery, with thoughtful, kind and caring staff. My toddler loves it and is loved by everyone there. They cover a wide range of activities and tick every box for learning, happiness, food, hygiene, safeguarding and general, all-round excellence.

My son absolutely loves coming the nursery. The staff are always so welcoming, friendly and professional. The activities that I see him doing on his Tapestry are fantastic. The staff are sensitive to his individual needs when it comes down to settling him to sleep etc. I am so impressed with the healthy menu. Thank you so much Hopscotch for making my return to work so much easier.

My son started at Hopscotch Day Nursery Botley in July 2017 and has come on leaps and bounds since being here.

The team are happy and welcoming and always available for a chat if you have any questions or concerns. They complete a number of activities with the children and I enjoy receiving the updates about this on Tapestry.

My son has a food allergy and they have been very accommodating to his needs, I feel reassured that they are looking after him.

Have recommended Hopscotch to a number of my friends in the area as I am very impressed.

I cannot say enough positive things about Hopscotch Botley. Both my wife and I were very anxious about our one-year-old boy starting at nursery but he settled in perfectly within a few weeks. The staff were so supportive and understanding of our anxieties. Our little boy loves coming to nursery and smiles as he arrives. He has now moved into the Waddler room and equally loves his time. He goes outside every day which is something that is really important to me. I couldn't be happier about him coming to nursery now.

I can't speak highly enough of Hopscotch Day Nursery Botley. My son has been going since he turned one and is just getting ready to move into the toddler's room. The care and attention given to him in both the babies and waddlers rooms have been exceptional. His walking, talking and all-round skills have all developed since starting and I love hearing about the new things he has been discovering on his days there. The nursery is so welcoming it actually feels like I am dropping him off with family. Which when they are so small is priceless.

Hopscotch Day Nursery Botley has been our chosen nursery provider since our first daughter was 10 months old, back in 2013. Time has flown and she is now in her final year before starting 'big school'! From those first months in the baby room through to Pre-school Hall, we have watched our daughter develop and grow in confidence, learning and exploring through play in safe surroundings with fantastic resources. We know she is ready for her next adventure in September and this is all thanks to the staff, who truly are amazing, nothing is ever too much trouble, experienced, kind and nurturing. So in June last year, we started all over again with our 10-month-old baby boy. The second time around there wasn't any of the apprehensions experienced finding suitable, trustworthy childcare for our precious baby. We knew our baby boy would do nothing but thrive and eight months in he is fully settled and ready to move up to Waddlers in a few months.

My two children are currently at Hopscotch. Both started very young 5m. Leaving such a young child in the care of a non-family member is a very stressful and worrying time as a mother. The staff from reception right through to the staff in each room, are so warm and friendly and made the process much easier than I ever thought possible. Hopscotch is one big family, caring for my family.

My son has attended Hopscotch since he was 9 months old. He enjoys going in and has lots of fun both inside and in their garden. The children's welfare is at the heart of everything they do I have concerns over leaving him there as he is so happy.

I can't begin to explain just how good this nursery is. My little lady goes to bed every night, and wakes up every morning excited to be going to Hopscotch. She transferred from a different nursery where they'd not heard her talk let alone laugh. She does both non stop at Hopscotch, and this is because of the love and care the staff show to her (and all of the other children) she finally feels safe and secure when she's away from me. Once I've dropped her off in the mornings I don't worry about her while I'm at work because I know 100% that the staff will always act in her best interest.

I am so pleased to have found this nursery, the staff are all lovely and make everyone feel welcome. They have a genuine interest in the children and know all of them, so the children feel very relaxed and safe. The food is excellent and always generous portions! Both my children have attended and my son is still there until August; both love it and I feel have grown in confidence and have positively developed as a direct impact of Hopscotch nursery. I would thoroughly recommend.

Friendly and caring nursery. My son attended from 10months to 3.5 years; passing through babies, waddles, toddlers and pre-school. I was really happy with Hopscotch and felt the staff really cared for my son.

My little girl has attended this nursery since she was 18 months old. She's due to start school in September and we will be so sad to leave! Her experience and development has been amazing. The staff have been a massive support to her learning, she is constantly learning and having fun. Having been in my sole care they were great at transitioning her to a different environment. Personally I've found the staff exceptional, they really care about the children and their development. They definitely deserve the Ofsted outstanding award.
