Reviews

9.4 Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.395)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 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 4.681 for Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield is calculated as follows: ( (105 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.681

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.714

  • 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 Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield

  • Mother of Child

My 2 year daughter absolutely loves going to Poppies Beaconsfield and I feel very comfortable leaving her there for the day. She has a very close relationship with her key person and has made lots of friends.

I struggle to get her to try new things such as clothes and shoes. Nursery were able to get her to wear her new slippers in one day which her dad and I had been trying to get her to wear for weeks!

She enjoys all the food and often has seconds.

We talk in the evenings about her day and it always sounds like she's had a great time.

I feel her learning has accelerated since being at Poppies and I believe the team have contributed to her being such a bright little girl.

My daughter has been at Poppies Day Nursery since November 2016 and has settled in really well. All the ladies are so nice and caring and she gets to do lots of lovely activities, and play in the garden. The food is also excellent.

Poppies is a wonderful outstanding nursery. I feel that my son has developed so much since he has been here. Also, he's made great friends, not only with children but also with the staff. I would highly recommend to other parents. I'm going to very sad that my son will be leaving this summer to go up to school.

Our daughter has now been at Poppies for almost 2 years since she was 1 years old and has been through Baby Nest, Little Explorers and now is in Big Explorers. From class to class she has grown and all key carers have been of a high standard. Our daughter has never come home upset from nursery and is always talking about her key carers and friends. She has a healthy diet and always eats the food, in fact, her day sheet often says has 2nd.
We could not be more pleased with Poppies and would highly recommend to any parent. We are expecting our 2nd child and she also will be enrolled at poppies for when she turns 1.

Our daughter has been attending the Poppies in Beaconsfield for a short period of time. She has attended other nurseries in the past. The staff have made her feel welcome and are extremely friendly, including her in the activities for full-time children. We chose this nursery as the outside space is really large and great in summer for the children to run around.

Excellent and experienced staff who make the ever so difficult transition for a mum to leave her baby and go back to work, that bit easier. Great communication throughout the day if that's what you request, and they follow the individual routines of your baby. Designated key workers know exactly what your baby has been doing each day and they build up positive relationships with not only the babies but their families. I now don't think twice about leaving my baby at this nursery as I know she is extremely well cared for and she loves the range of activities on offer!

Since my son joined the nursery at 6 months old, I have seen him develop in so many ways - from his communication skills to his growing confidence. I am delighted to say, as he recently turned two, that he is a happy, content and confident child, much of which I feel is due to his positive experience at Poppies.

My child has been attending Poppies for over a year now and he loves his time there he started at little explorers and moved to big explorers with ease. The carers are so welcoming to the parents and the children which are so important and goes a long way to helping the children settle in. They really do care! I'd recommend Poppies without hesitation.

A fantastic nursery in a beautiful setting which has ample outside grounds for the children to play in which is really important. The carers in the baby nest are all lovely and attentive to my (now) 1-year-old and coped very well with her from the age of 4 months. Great facilities and options of toys to play with.

Both my sons have attended/are attending Poppies since they were 12 months old and have loved being there. The staff are wonderful and so caring and conscientious. In particular, with my eldest son, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a few months after starting there aged just 16 months. It's a chronic condition which relied on my son needing multiple injections a day, carbohydrate counting and constant monitoring with finger pricks to test his blood sugar. The whole team embraced this challenge wholeheartedly and we had several members of staff trained to manage my son, and care plans were written. Two members, in particular, looked after him through his 4 years there and their care, attention and tenacity have meant that we were totally confident leaving him at Poppies. I can't recommend it highly enough.

All staff are caring and friendly and my son never has a problem with who he goes to when he arrives in the morning.
My son is always happy to be there and seems to be coming on leaps and bounds with his confidence and his learning development.
Only slight negative is that other nurseries that charge the same, some less, per day are open until 18:30 as opposed to 18:00

We couldn't be any happier with Poppies Day Nursery Beaconsfield. Everything about it is fantastic: the management and staff, the premises, the activities they organise for the children - and our daughter absolutely loves it! It's wonderful to see how happy she is there and how much she is learning in a playful way every day. We're delighted that her little brother will soon be going too!
