Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.617 for Turtles Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.617

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Turtles Nursery is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 6 Target Reached = 1

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

9.6 Turtles Nursery has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.617) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time

This is one of the best nurseries in the city. The director is such a wonderful person and are staff are highly professional and excellent in child care.

When I did my masters at the City law school in 2015 the director and her fantastic team made studying very easy for me as I need not worry about care for my boys. She was very helpful and flexible and this met my needs as a student.

My boys were looked after and enjoyed coming to the nursery. The director and her team are very hardworking and dedicated in ensuring that childcare is given at its best. They have always maintained a high standard of care and that is why I am happy to come back to Turtle nursery after 3years.

I am so excited my 1-year-old is starting in September 2018. This is an excellent nursery and I will highly recommend it to families, friends and colleagues.

My three year old started the nursery two months ago and he settled in very well. He is learning new songs, shapes and making friends. The staff are friendly and the outside play area is well used, given the amount of space Central London has to offer.

Initially, I was apprehensive and a little anxious about returning to work before my son was a year old. But from the moment I went to see Turtles with my husband, my mind was instantly put at ease. The staff are amazing and our son's key worker really worked with him to settle him and reassure me. He was always bringing home art and learned so much in a few short months. I would recommend Turtles wholeheartedly as it is an oasis of calm for children in the heart of the West End. I was pleasantly surprised by how much time the children get to spend outdoors.

My son has been with Turtles for over two years now and he loves it. He is learning lots there and growing, knowing the rights and wrongs in life.
At the moment, he is having a little uneasy time cos his very close friend isn't coming in as much. I cannot thank the staff enough for their help with him and us during this period. I can see that he is already feeling much better. It is really reassuring to see that they always make sure the child is happy.
Last year, the staff turnover was very high and sometimes not communicated to parents, but I do think that the team on now are working great together!

My daughter started Turtles Nursery when she was two and she has been extremely happy there. They do everything they can to not only make your child happy but for the parents to be happy and relaxed about leaving their child. My daughter is now 3 1/2 and is leaving to start big school. They have been very helpful in getting her ready for this by doing an enrichment program to prep the 3-year-olds which has been amazing and very helpful. My daughter is leaving, knowing how to write her name, count and recognise numbers, and her shapes, but most of all she is leaving with confidence. We will miss Turtles and I highly recommend this nursery to everyone.

Before our dear son started at Turtles Nursery, we had visited six different nurseries with very high scores. But it was only in Turtles Nursery that we felt this very warm atmosphere, which has been the primary trigger for us. And after almost seven months, I see that we were right. Extremely friendly, caring and knowledgeable staff. My kid loves them and they love him. When I leave my kid there, I feel that he is in warm and safe hands.

My daughter has been attending Turtles Nursery for almost two years now (she is two-and-a-half now) and she has flourished under the guidance of the amazing staff there!
Not only are they professional and friendly but have been very flexible in terms of my daughter's timings due to my fluctuating working hours.
The kids are always learning something new and she regularly disappears into the nursery without looking back when I drop her off such is her excitement to be there!

My daughter has attended Turtles Nursery for 2 years (2015 - 2017). It took her a while to settle in, but she was very shy child. After two years, I have a wonderful, playful, polite little lady.

Thank you to the amazing nursery staff who work very hard to provide excellent education and entertainment for the little ones. Halfway through her time here, I moved my daughter for few months to another nursery (closer to our house) but ended up transferring her back to Turtles.

In my opinion, this is a friendly and amazing place for the little ones.
