Reviews

8.8 Wells House Kindergarten has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.802)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Wells House Kindergarten 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wells House Kindergarten in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.719 for Wells House Kindergarten is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.719

  • 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 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wells House Kindergarten is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

My son started at Wells House Kindergarten in November at 9 months and settled in extremely well. The staff in the baby room ensured he was fully settled before he was due to start full days, they allowed as many settling in sessions as we felt was needed.

Since starting in November he is happy to go into the nursery with no problems and always come home with a smile on his face. I can’t recommend Wells House Kindergarten enough they have made my son’s time at nursery enjoyable.

Overall, I am very happy with the care, attention and learning activities both of my children have received at Wells House. The staff are absolutely lovely, my son can't wait to arrive in a morning, which to me, means more than anything else. Thank you Wells House for creating a caring and welcoming environment for my children.

Wells House Kindergarten provides a warm, friendly atmosphere. My daughter walks in like it's home from home which makes life easier for me knowing she's happy. I have been most impressed with the school room. They're providing strong guidance which I feel is preparing my daughter for school. All staff at Wells House Kindergarten will be missed by both of us.

I feel that my child gets a great deal of learning at nursery. They do so much to help their development which makes it a nice place to send my child. The staff are really helpful and friendly and my child loves attending. They give great feedback on what the children are up to and provide online learning journals and photos to keep you updated.

My child has attended Wells House sine 2012 when she was 9 months old and she is now nearly 3. She loves going and talks about nursery all the time. She sings songs which she has learnt at nursery and talks about what she has learnt which amazes me, and it is clear to see that the staff spend time with her talking to her and developing her learning. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The nursery is always clean and has lovely well presented resources. I love the new online learning journeys which allows you to view your child's learning as it happens. I have been in a few times when they were having lunch or snack and the food looks lovely, a good variety homemade, fresh fruit and the portion sizes were of a good size. I would definitely recommend Wells House we are really happy and my child is really happy which is a big plus.

My daughter has only just started at the nursery but she has settled in well and that is due to the time the nursery have taken to ensure that happens. She had numerous settling sessions and the staff that look after are warm and friendly so you feel at ease leaving her there.
