Reviews

9.4 Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.384)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.848 for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) is calculated as follows: ( (234 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 276 Ratings = 4.848

  • 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 4.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) is based on 6 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.536

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

The Acorn staff are what makes the nursery. They take time to understand each child and provide the support and nurturing they need to explore and develop in a safe and fun environment.

They always give time at the end of the day to provide an update on the child's day and to support us in advice and guidance for the continuing their learning at home.

When my son started at Acorn Day Nursery we had been having issues with his temper and emotions.
The staff have been truly amazing and supporting in every way and my child has really come on.
It is mine and my husband's belief that this is down to the wonderful care he has had at Acorns by all staff.
Wonderful, one happy mummy.

My son started back at nursery after the Christmas holidays and has enjoyed numerous trips to Stanwick Lakes, lots of pre-school preparation, such as collecting items with the 'weekly letter' and going on walks and spotting numbers. The nursery really seems to be encouraging my son to learn in preparation for school in September and are doing it in a fun way that helps him want to learn. All the staff are extremely welcoming every morning and always tell me about his day and something 'positive' that he's done when I collect him.

My little girl loves going to nursery at Acorn (Stanwick). The staff are lovely and always give plenty of feedback about the day. The outdoor spaces are amazing, my daughter particularly enjoys Forest School as she loves the mud and crafting they do as well as the meals they cook over the open fire.

My child started the nursery in April. Both myself and my husband were really apprehensive about leaving our child with strangers (non- family members). The nursery offer 4 settling in sessions where we could stay with him. All the staff were really reassuring and supportive to the family and gave regular updates on how he was, including pictures. The staff didn't make us feel silly, they were really understanding. My child now looks froward to going and runs straight to his key worker with a big smile.
