Reviews

8 Olney Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.008)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Olney Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.852 for Olney Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.852

  • 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 3.156 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Olney Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.156

  • 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 brilliant for encouraging the children to really push on with developing their strengths and weaknesses. They choose activities which match the children's interests and work with them to get them to try things they find hard. The extra activities such as French, Music and PE are wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed by the children. There are also lots of specially planned activities to encourage parental involvement.

My son currently attends Olney Nursery and his sister before him. I have loved the nursery from the moment we went to look around. The environment is so stimulating, there are learning stations inside and outside. Education is taught through games and structured learning which suited my daughter who preferred to explore and play. My daughter left nursery able to read and my son is exploring letter and numbers, when before he has shown no interest.

The manager and her team provide excellent care and facilities. The learning follows a theme every term and is highly interactive and varied. They are sensitive to individual children's needs and provide a caring environment to nurture children. My daughter loved her time at Olney Nursery and it was an excellent preparation for school. My son currently attends and was enjoying himself so much that we quickly increased the number of sessions he does! A wonderful place and I am grateful for the care and kindness they have shown my children.

Both of our children have attended this nursery and both have thoroughly enjoyed their experience and flourished under the care of the team here. The activities offered to the children are thoughtful and varied, but with a careful amount of education thrown in, which comes from the owner being a trained teacher. The owner and her team give lots of time to each child, getting to know them well so activities can often be adjusted according to the individual needs of the child. The nursery allows the children to play freely as well as in a more structured fashion and they also offer extra activities including cookery, french and music. We always enjoy hearing our son's account of how he kneaded the dough when they made pizzas, or jumped into shapes in time to the music. Our children have always been excited about attending this nursery and we are delighted with both their academic progress and their social and personal development as a result of them coming to the Olney Nursery.
