The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Moorlands School & Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.993 for Moorlands School & Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.993

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Moorlands School & Nursery is based on 12 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

Three of our children have progressed through Moorlands, all starting in the nursery. Our son is currently in Foxes. The setting, staff and care provided are fabulous. The range of subjects and extra-curricular activities on offer in the nursery are second-to-none and include swimming, rugby tots, cricket, and dance amongst others. Our son is confident, progressing well and very, very happy at Moorlands as are our other children. A super school with a wonderful family community. Highly recommended.

My son started in the Squirrels class of nursery when he had just turned 3. He had never been looked after by anyone other than me so I was worried about how he would settle in. I needn't have worried. The staff at Moorlands were great and he has enjoyed every day he has been there for over a year. The activities available are excellent and there are lots of opportunities to do fun and exciting activities. The educational activities have set him up really well for going to school in September.

Moorlands provides an excellent nursery setting. The facilities and learning opportunities are brilliant. Each day is so varied with dance, swimming, forest school all on offer.
It is an excellent foundation for children going on to reception.

The team and facilities at Moorlands are excellent and provide a wonderful environment for children to flourish.
My son attended Squirrels from 2 years of age and settled very quickly due to the warmth of the caring team and the range of activities to keep him stimulated.
He is now in Foxes and loves it. Every day provides a range of stimulating activities including; forest school, swimming, PE, rugby tots, cooking, crafts and even learning some French.
I recommend Moorlands nursery to everyone looking for a caring, stimulating and friendly place for their child to grow.

I have two children attending Moorlands school. My son is in year 1; my daughter is in the nursery and will start Reception next year. Both are thriving, confident and happy there. The variety of educational activities is fantastic and the staff are excellent. My husband and I are very happy that we found this gem of a school for our children.

My daughter has been at Moorlands for nearly 3 years (Early Years). We have been very happy with the offerings of the school, both curricular and also extra-curricular. Their facilities are also unparalleled. The staff are excellent and very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our daughter was only 2 years old when she started but has settled in with ease as she has been looked after very well from the day she started. Would recommend the school with no hesitation.

My eldest son started in the nursery at Moorlands 5 years ago and has progressed into the main school with ease and confidence.
My 2 younger sons have followed in recent years and we are thrilled with the experience that all the boys have had/are having (my youngest son is still currently in nursery). The staff are wonderful - so caring, friendly and patient and the boys have happily run into nursery every day.
The range of activities on offer is fantastic and it is a wonderful platform for the children before they start school. The transition into reception is perfect, we could not be happier.

My three boys have been attending Moorlands for almost two years and my husband and I can not fault the school. We feel really blessed that we took the step to visit Moorlands two years ago, and we never looked back. We wished we discovered Moorlands earlier for our older boys, as we know that they too would have benefited highly if they too attended. Moorlands delivers outstanding educational development for the nursery children which sets them ready and fully confident for 'big school'. The number of activities that they do is truly amazing, ranging from swimming to music to languages and PE and Forest school/ bushcraft. The school gives all the children the opportunity to develop and find their true passion through learning. The staff at Moorlands are an absolute asset to the school. I have been through quite a few schools with my older boys and I can confidently say that this school is by far the best school I have come across which delivers all round excellence.

I cannot recommend the nursery at Moorlands School highly enough. Not to be confused with the separate, independent nursery which is situated in the school's grounds, the school's early learning facilities are second to none and provide the children with all the amazing opportunities which are open to those who attend the school from the age of 2. The staff are wonderful and I feel totally confident leaving my child in their hands. He is thriving at Moorlands and loves every second of it.

My grandson is now in his third year of nursery and we are delighted with the progress he continues to make both in and outside of the classroom.
The staff are fully understanding of the demands of these early learners and cope brilliantly.
Both our daughters went through the Moorlands School & Nursery 25 years ago and we had no reservations in having our grandson follow their footsteps.
