Reviews

7.9 Naturally Learning Poltair has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.949)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Naturally Learning Poltair is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Naturally Learning Poltair in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.849 for Naturally Learning Poltair is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.849

  • 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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Naturally Learning Poltair is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

All of my children have attended Naturally Learning. I cannot praise them enough! They adapt to each child's personality and allow them to be themselves! My eldest attended before starting school and he was so prepared for school and had such great skills which he had learnt from Naturally Learning. Even the school said children who attended Naturally Learning settled in extremely well to the foundation stage of school.
My two younger children have dietary and medical needs, which Naturally Learning deal with fantastically! For my child to eat the same as everyone else, is a massive thing.
All of my children have and do love it there, and I cannot recommend enough. They particularly love forest and beach school and I am shocked by the knowledge they have picked up, from names of flowers, plants and trees and so much more!

Can't sing their praises enough. My nephew will be starting soon on my recommendation.
If you want your child to play, learn and explore in a fantastic environment with genuinely lovely staff then look no further. It was important for me, that my children had lots of opportunity to play outside and this place has great outside spaces.

My daughter absolutely loves attending Naturally Learning (Poltair). She's always happy when I drop her off and even happier when I pick her up, she loves all the staff. She will miss her key worker but I know the rest of the girls in the baby room will look after her and make her days at nursery just as enjoyable.

The nursery have been amazing with my daughter from day 1. She is always made to feel welcome and safe. My daughter enjoys all aspects of nursery and always comes home happy. The food that the nursery provides is brilliant. Always healthy and tasty. All the staff are really friendly and have a genuine bond with all the children. I'm at peace knowing my daughter is being well looked after. Thank you!

Our son has been at this nursery nearly two years now. We wouldn't consider anywhere else based on our 2 year experience to date. The nursery provides a warm welcoming environment with lovely, approachable staff and an environment conducive to learning and development in a fun manner. Very happy parents.

My daughter was in Naturally Learning Poltair for a short period of time due to some difficult personal circumstances and I cannot say how amazing the team there are. They are all so caring and helpful and settled my daughter in, making her feel very cared for and loved while she was there. They helped her make friends and also encouraged her to spend a lot of time outside and she has grown in confidence and developed so much over this time period. If we were not moving I would happily have kept her there for as long as they would have had her as she was so happy as was I with this fantastic environment. I cannot recommend this nursery setting enough, they are brilliant.

My daughter came here to begin with for her two year funding place only. We decided her experience here was so good to keep her at Naturally Learning for her 3yr funded place too. The workers cannot do enough for the children. You get a full run down of their day on collecting and know they've had a full and exciting day of adventures. The Forest School is amazing and such a great resource for all children. I wish it was used in all primary schools too. We knew that if she came home clean she was having a bad day. :) I can't thank them enough for everything they have done. Their ethos and work ethic is brilliant and you can see how much they care for each and every child. The building improvements and outdoor areas, the Forest School area and garden are stunning. I wish something like this existed when I was little.
