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 4.476 for Combe Down Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.476

  • 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 4.028 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Combe Down Nursery 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.278

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

The nursery is amazing the staff are very welcoming and professional, my child started in baby room and is now in toddler room. She really enjoys coming in and always comes out with a smile on her face, she has always done different activities such as painting cooking and messy play plus she really likes the food and eats it all. Would recommend this nursery to anybody who is looking for a setting for their child.

My daughter has developed quite quickly since she has attended the nursery. She is happy to go to nursery every day and she loves most of the activities she gets involved in. Her English has also improved hugely. I think the nursery is very well organised and kids do lots of educational activities while playing different games and enjoying them.

The nursery is fantastic. The staff are very professional and are extremely caring. We feel like they know us and our son very well and they know exactly how to care for him. This is reflected in the settling in process, where it did not take him long to settle in. We would recommend the nursery to everyone. We really like the way they also have lots of extra events - they really go the extra mile.

The management has been and continues to be very considerate, helpful and supportive towards us as a family. My child enjoys his time at nursery and is a big fan of the food.

My daughter really enjoys attending the nursery. All the team are excellent and friendly and they all know her name. There's a good range of activities throughout the week.

We like the size of the nursery and hope it will stay relatively small. The holiday times are great as they get to venture further afield with smaller groups.

Excellent provision from a friendly and dedicated team. Management was previously poor and there were inconsistencies with staffing, however since new leadership has come in, the team appears much happier and united. My child loves going to nursery and I feel confident sending her there.

Overall, this is a lovely nursery, with friendly, helpful staff. Lots of interesting activities for the children and a lovely garden. Recent building work means the pre-school room is fab and am sure the continued works will improve the whole nursery. It could be made more clear what the children eat eg. changing the menus each term and sending menus in advance to parents. A better hand-over at end of day also useful, but minor points.
