The Review Score of 6.4 (maximum of 10) for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Acton Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Acton Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.8 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.571 for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Acton Park is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.571

  • 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 1.818 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Acton Park is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.385 , then divided by 2 = 0.193

  • 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 small and compact which gives a safe secure feel. Very friendly and helpful, polite staff. Always giving full explanations of child's activities throughout the day. My grandson has really thrived since attending nursery he is meeting all his milestones.

My son is in the nursery and absolutely loves it (largely due to the staff)! He's been in since he was 1, they have a large garden area (in London terms and what I have seen in the Acton area) which he spends most of the in (and let's face it at that age all you wanted to do was play outside and run around). His speech has developed so much since being there and I love it because its been natural and not that he has been coached to repeat words. He has also developed a love for music. The have a large range of activities they carry out - he comes home everyday with either paint, glitter, etc on him (but in a good way). The staff are amazing and my son literally runs out of the pram every morning to see them and doesn't even say bye to me! I highly recommend if you want a place that has a great outdoor space, friendly staff who care about kids and do exciting activities with them!
