Reviews

8.5 The Fun Factory has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.470)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for The Fun Factory is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Fun Factory in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 2 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 4.917 for The Fun Factory is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.917

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 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 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.

    The 3.553 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Fun Factory is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.303

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

The Fun Factory is such a warm and caring environment, I cannot fault it. Rather than stand at my side, during all other nursery 'look rounds' both my children ran off and started playing immediately. Surely that says it all really. Both children are previously looked after children so there was an extra dimension to consider. The Fun Factory has developed and cared for both my children far beyond any of my expectations.

We have been really delighted with the way that my daughter has progressed at The Fun Factory and she has clearly enjoyed herself there - she couldn't wait to get there in the mornings. All of the staff are extremely professional and have the utmost confidence in the care and attention that they give all the children.
Thank you so much for everything that you have done and continue to do, we would have no hesitation in recommending The Fun Factory to anyone.

From day one we have been extremely impressed with the quality of care provided by The Fun Factory. My girl's settling in days were done at a pace that suited both her and us. Staff have always been friendly and welcoming and always excited to tell us how our girl's day has been. Our girl is excited to arrive every day and sad to leave. She is pushed and encouraged to learn and her progress is recorded on a dedicated, secure web page unique to her and her individual journey. She has progressed so much since starting. The only reason we are leaving is because we have to relocate for work, otherwise we would be very happy with her staying there.

I can only speak about The Fun Factory in the highest possible terms. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending it to parents looking for top quality childcare

My son has just left The Fun Factory Woking after two and a half years. I can't praise the management and staff enough for the excellent care and learning development support given to him during this time. From the wide ranging activities, thoughtfully structured sessions and close relationships with parents, I wholeheartedly recommend this nursery to anyone in the Woking area wanting quality childcare in a lovely friendly environment.
