  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.767 for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) is calculated as follows: ( (313 Excellents x 5) + (95 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 408 Ratings = 4.767

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) is based on 15 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). 15 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target Reached = 1

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

9.8 Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.767) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.8 out of 5 from 34 Reviews over all time

This nursery is amazing.

Forest School sets the nursery apart from the rest. The team do all they can to make you feel welcome and both my girls are excited about going to nursery every day. Even at weekends, they ask "Daddy, is it a nursery day today. Please can I go".

We have been delighted with our daughter's development over this last year and is definitely ready for school. The staff have supported and challenged her to become confident. The environment is fun and stimulating. Particularly pleased that she has the opportunity to go to Forest School.

Excellent nursery. The staff have always got time to talk. The children always seem happy and my daughter seems to do a real range of activities. She has had so many lovely experiences at the nursery and developed many skills and learnt lots of new ones.

Our son has been here for just over 3 years and he loves it. We've never had any issues along the way and his keyworker over the last year has been fantastic with him, particularly managing his emotions. We would highly recommend this nursery for any child.

My daughter has been attending Acorn Day Nursery (Stanwick) since she was 9 months old. During her time at nursery, she has been happy, settled and thoroughly enjoyed herself. She has thrown herself into the Forest School activities, even in the snow and will these regular sessions. The secret garden gives them a chance to get messy and run off some steam.
The staff, whilst they do change, have all been wonderfully supportive and work with the children who require additional activities to meet their needs when they are above their age level!

My girls came to this nursery after their previous one closed. I was so worried about how they would settle in but I needn't have. All the staff took on my worries and made the move so easy. My girls love it and have developed no end since attending. The care and attention is excellent and I know how happy and safe they are, which for any parent, this is all you want.

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.

My daughter has enjoyed coming to Acorn nursery since she was 11 months old, she is now 4 years old. Her confidence has grown hugely over her time and she benefited from the social interaction with the staff and other children. The outdoor areas of the nursery are very good.
