Reviews

8 Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.000)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.5 for Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250

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

Highfield was our first choice of school for our daughter after completing extensive research of schools in Maidenhead. Our daughter settled very well in the school under the good guidance of the teachers who are highly qualified and trained. She has developed very well with her vocabulary and numeracy skills and does extremely creative artwork in school and at the after school club. We plan for our daughter to continue at Highfield in years to come.

My 2nd daughter is currently at Highfield Preparatory School & Nursery and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Both our girls have flourished in the nursery and have become confident, polite, chatty and charming little girls. The staff are nurturing and caring and clearly care for each girl as an individual, spending much time one-to-one with them on a daily basis. Staff turnover is basically zero which was important to us. The classroom is always filled with fun activities and from the minute you enter the nursery you can tell the girls love being there. There is also a strong academic side should your daughter be so inclined as to be challenged in that way. The link from the nursery to the rest of the school is very strong and this was an essential for us in terms of preparing our children for moving into Reception. When my older daughter moved up last year it was literally "just another day at school" for her and made starting school an easy and stress-free experience. Highly, highly recommended!
