Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.821 for Bambi's Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (69 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.821

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bambi's Childcare is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 4 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • 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 Bambi's Childcare

  • Mother of Child
    7

Treated like one of the family from day one. Lovely home from home setting, very welcoming and all the staff take the time to get to know us/my Daughter.

All staff go above and beyond, often spending their own time doing Xmas parties, summer parties, sports days etc.

Great seeing my Daughter and her friends learn Makaton, as well as the usual reading/writing/counting.

We love Bambi's x

My son had been attending Bambi's since he was 9 months old. He has grown so much in all aspects since being there. He has grown so much in his confidence and the staff have always encouraged him and he wouldn't be the cheeky, confident and smart boy he is today. All the staff are so friendly and always have time to talk to us to let us know what our son has been doing. If we have concerns or questions the staff are always on hand and never make us feel uncomfortable or silly for asking. We made the best decision using Bambi's for our childcare and would recommend them to anyone.

Our son has been at Bambi's for three years. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of not having to work, but I do have the luxury of knowing that he is in a loving and caring environment whilst I cannot be with him. He has fun filled days which includes a weekly drama class and benefits from the excellent teaching given in preparation for school. The lines of communication are always open. He enjoys healthy and varied home-cooked meals daily. Bambi's is a home from home and the staff are more than just staff to us - they go beyond the call of duty to ensure our son is happy and feels loved and they are our extended family. We will miss them dearly when he starts school this year, but we will be back to visit! I would recommend Bambi's to anyone looking for a homely nursery setting where the emphasis is on the care, development and happiness of the children.

My daughter would not be the well-rounded individual she is if it wasn't for the time and care all staff take with her. She has delayed speech and with the staff's patience and care, make sure she is included and understood. Bambi's have gone above and beyond to assist us with getting the relevant help and support for her with outside agencies and have forged relationships to support her. Bambi's has a home from home feel which instantly hits you as you walk in and all children are made to feel part of the atmosphere. My family feel we have found a true gem with this lovely nursery.

This is the second nursery my son has been to. he has come on so much since coming here. He's now so sociable and confident. He has learnt to be independent, to dress and undress himself, he is fully potty trained and is managing to try and eat so many different foods. I would definitely recommend this nursery as 'home from home' with people who love your children like their own. They encourage the children to prosper and flourish.

As with all parents, my children are my most treasured possession and I was delighted, having just moved to the area, to have been recommended Bambi's for my daughter. They really ARE about the children. Such caring staff with a genuine desire to do the best for your children - I can't praise them enough and am so happy to leave her there knowing she is in excellent hands. My daughter loves it there and it will be a sad day when she leaves! Thank you, ladies, for going the extra mile

When I first went back to work, I was so nervous about leaving my son. He has come on so well and really settled into the nursery. He loves all the ladies that look after him and is becoming more confident. Whenever I pick him up, he is full of smiles. I would recommend Bambi's Childcare to anyone looking for a home from home nursery. They really do make you feel like your part of a family. Ladies, if you see this, thank you for all your hard work, love and care towards mine and so many others children!
