Reviews

9.4 Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.396)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 11 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 4.846 for Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.846

  • 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 4.55 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth is based on 11 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.550

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

Both my daughters attend Boys & Girls and both of them love it. Never a day where I have a problem getting them motivated to leave the house for nursery. The staff are attentive, caring and creative. Especially in the baby room they really give everything to ensure a smooth settling in period. Food is excellent too. As well as all the extracurricular activities they offer.

We're so glad they both love coming to nursery! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

My daughter has been coming to Boys & Girls Nursery for the last two months. I was nervous at first sending my daughter to nursery but the staff made my husband and I feel very relaxed. She's settled in brilliantly with the help of the wonderful staff. I always watch for a few minutes before collecting her and she's always having a ball. I would recommend Boys & Girls Nursery to everyone.

Thank you for your lovely review - we are so pleased your little girl has settled so well.

When entering Boys & Girls Nursery, we knew straight away it would be the right choice and they haven't failed us. My daughter only took a few sessions before she was settled in and having the CCTV in reception to watch her, really helped with my own anxiety of leaving her for the first time. There is always lots of activities for her to enjoy which change weekly.

Excellent team and facilities, my daughter has loved being there for the past three years and I would highly recommend this nursery.
The environment is safe and welcoming and all the staff are engaged and supportive, my daughter has come on so much since going there as a baby, it’s one of the best decisions my wife and I have made.

Our daughter has been at Boys and Girls since she was 11 months old to 2 years old. She has blossomed and developed thanks to the support of the nursery. They have been attentive and extremely flexible when we have needed to change, extend or add sessions, which has been really useful returning to work.
The daily activities are varied, music sessions are a hit and the on site chef cooking, home cooked food a favourite with our little one.

It was with a lot of apprehension and doubts that we choose B&Gs Rickmansworth for our pre-schooler being new to the area at that time. But it turned out to be my baseless fear within the first few weeks of her starting the nursery.
Her key worker, an amazing lady took her under her wing and from then on it was a smooth journey for a year. I can hardly remember of any mornings when she said she didn't want to go to nursery. Being there full time Monday to Friday it was truly her second home. She adored her teachers and loved all the extra activities like Sports, French and TinyMites. Sadly, it is now time to say goodbye as she is moving to big school. I really wish she had more time there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to any parents who are looking for childcare.

Great nursery with lots of outside space. Committed staff are open to discussion and always keen to do the best for the children. Relationships between staff and children are very good and staff make a real effort to get to know and bond with them.

My Daughter has been with the nursery since January. I must say, the relationships she has with the girls in her room is wonderful. She is always delighted to see them, as they are with her. A really amazing thing to see.

My daughter is in the pre-toddler room at Boys & Girls Nursery Rickmansworth. The girls in the room have been brilliant in helping her to settle in. She is learning new things every day with their help. Seeing her so happy, waving me goodbye and having a special relationship with her key person means I'm a happy Mumma who is confident that she will be will taken care of whilst I'm working.

My son started Boys & Girls Nursery when he was 6 months old, they provide a nurturing environment and the staff are passionate about the care they provide. The meals are freshly cooked on site and my son always eats well. His day is full of wonderful, varied activities and they have a large garden which he loves. It’s very heartwarming to be able to drop your child at nursery for them to run off and play with their friends waving goodbye to you from across the room. Happy child = happy Mummy! I would highly recommend this nursery.

Boys and Girls is an excellent nursery for toddlers and Pre-Schoolers, that my children (4 & 2) thoroughly enjoy attending. The staff are really caring and are interested in the development of the children in their care. The activities the nursery offer are varied and interesting, indoors and out. Delicious food and a location handy for Rickmansworth Station. Excellent!
