The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Home From Home Children's Day Nursery Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Home From Home Children's Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 5 for Home From Home Children's Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (120 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Home From Home Children's Day Nursery Ltd is based on 8 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 7.6 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.

Home from Home is the best nursery I have experienced so far, from the owner to the management and all the way to the educators that cover, they all, without a doubt, give the best care to my daughter. They all have her very best interests at heart. She loves going to nursery. She has so much fun with all the creative activities. I cannot thank Home from Home enough, what a wonderful place!

I would definitely recommend this nursery to friends and family.

My daughter attends Home from Home Children's Day Nursery five days a week for the past year. Since attending the nursery I feel it has helped her develop and become independent. My daughter has an amazing bond with all staff members and Is excited to attend in the mornings. All the staff are lovely and approachable. The nursery is always clean and welcoming. I feel very comfortable leaving my child at the nursery and would recommend the nursery to family and friends.

Thank you, I am really pleased you feel your daughter is enjoying herself and that you are at ease leaving her in our care. Thank you for your kind words.

Both my daughter and son attend Home From Home Children's Day Nursery two days a week, my daughter for the past two years and my son for three months. Since attending my daughter has developed greatly and become and independent little girl. She has built lovely relationships with all the staff members and made many friends. She loves attending the nursery and gets excited about coming. Since my son started I feel he has been helped to settle in lovely and now also gets excited when we arrive. The nursery is always very clean and welcoming and I feel happy to have my children at the nursery and would definitely recommend the nursery to family and friends looking for child care.

Thank you, your kind comments are both appreciated and encouraging.

Cannot fully put into words how highly I rate this nursery. Having looked at other childcare providers in my area I was sure I would never feel comfortable leaving my daughter in a stranger's care. Home from home not only dispelled this concern but have gained my complete trust when it comes to my daughter's care. A lovely, educational, fun environment for my daughter to play and learn in. Friendly, caring, professional and efficient staff who have gone out of their way to make my daughter feel welcomed and happy. Worth every penny knowing my daughter is happy, safe and well cared for in this fantastic nursery.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am delighted that you feel comfortable in allowing us to care for your daughter.

My son has attended for 18 months and still enjoys it as much as the first day. They have helped him grow in every way possible. He has so much fun, loves to get messy, yet comes home spotlessly clean. All staff are so professional and efficient. I really do feel that they actually care about my son and are not just doing their job. He is very fond of them all. Facilities, play areas and activities are brilliant. All age appropriate and very creative, have seen so many different themes over 18 months its unbelievable. Daily walks with plenty of fresh air is a favourite of mine and he loves the garden activities. Staff numbers are always in excess of the requirements which allow my son to have love and not just care. Really would highly recommend.

I am delighted that you are pleased our nursery and with the care your son receives, we are very lucky to have him at our nursery. Thank you so much for your very kind and encouraging comments, they really do mean a great deal and are much appreciated.

I can't praise this nursery enough. As any parent I was nervous about leaving my 2 year old, but the staff made me feel at ease. I love how secure the nursery is. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. My child has come along so much in the time he has been in the nursery. He is always happy coming from there, telling me about all the fun things he has done in the day.
