The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Jack and Jill Day Nursery, Corfe Mullen 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jack and Jill Day Nursery, Corfe Mullen in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.881 for Jack and Jill Day Nursery, Corfe Mullen is calculated as follows: ( (199 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.881

  • 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 Jack and Jill Day Nursery, Corfe Mullen is based on 11 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

This nursery is fantastic. There is such a bright, airy feel to the space and the children are all really happy. All of my children have attended this preschool and have all been very happy here - they have all also been well prepared for school life. My son currently loves to play outside in their mud kitchen, but he equally likes to take part in their creative play.
I feel that I am part of the preschool, too, as they always inform me of what he has been doing during the day. They have recently started some really lovely activities for parents to get to know each other too - an early breakfast once and I think they are planning an evening 'bedtime story'.
It is a wonderful nursery that has retained an intimate 'homely' atmosphere. The staff are professional and highly experienced - each lending a different skill to the team.
I feel that this preschool understands what is important to a child, and what is important to a parent - and manages to keep both happy!!!!!

Thank you for your lovely review.

Professional and approachable staff in a nursery with a fantastic atmosphere. My son really looks forward to the days he attends Jack and Jill and I can't fault the staff. Since my son has been at the nursery, they have invested into upgrading their garden which is brilliant, most days weather dependent, my son enjoys time in the garden.

My son has been attending Jack and Jill's since September 2016. My son settled quickly and loves going there. He had gained so much from the time he has spent there. Aside from all the usual qualities e.g. feeling safe, a lovely environment, good facilities, the thing that makes this nursery stand out above others is the staff. They are so friendly, helpful and supportive. They provide a varied selection of fun activities designed to focus on each area of development. They encourage the children to take part in all activities. They are also great at realising a child's own interests or strengths and build or adapt activities to suit these. My son has been extremely happy here and always talks enthusiastically about the things he does. A great nursery!

Jack and Jill is a lovely nursery setting, my son attends every day and really looks forward to it. He has made so many friends and gets on very well with all staff members too.
His confidence has improved significantly since he started and he always brings things home that he makes or tells us about what activities or cooking he's been doing.
I really like how all of the play and learning zones are arranged and the staff are always so friendly and understanding towards individual needs. Also, they are very good at keeping parents updated with various subjects they are concentrating on and sending newsletters etc...
I genuinely feel like my child is as happy, safe and cared for at Jack and Jill as if he were in my care.
I know my son will really miss going here when he starts school and I will definitely be choosing Jack and Jill for my next child!

My granddaughter started at Jack and Jill very recently and she absolutely loves it.
The staff are caring and encouraging and have enabled her to settle in with remarkable ease.
My granddaughter has made several little friends and, as an only child, this has been an important aspect of her time there.
The facilities are superb and the opportunities given throughout the morning are second to none. My granddaughter is full of excitement when she is collected at the end of her sessions and loves to tell us all what she's been up to. We've frequently heard new songs she's learned and new activities she's done.
I can't recommend this nursery highly enough.

My daughter has only been attending Jack and Jill for around 6 weeks but she has already settled in extremely well. The staff went above and beyond to make her feel welcome and always seem to be very interactive with all the children.
My daughter always comes home and tells us about the fun things she has learnt/played with which is always lovely to hear. I want to say a big thank you to all the Jack and Jill staff, you do a great job!

Since changing nursery setting and sending my little boy to Jack and Jills his confidence has grown immensely. His speech has also come on leaps and bounds.
The staff are warm and friendly and my little boy is very comfortable around them, which makes it easy to leave him knowing how happy and safe he is in the setting.
I recommend this nursery to everyone looking for a nursery in this area.

A fantastic nursery with wonderful facilities and staff. There is a vast amount of activities for your child to engage in, learn and grow. Both of my children have attended the setting, one still currently there, and they have both had great experiences. The staff are warm and friendly, the management are fantastic. I would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic nursery with caring and knowledgeable staff. My son attended this nursery and was happy and contented there enjoying all activities inside and in their outside space. Staff attended a specialist training course for Autism to help with my son's additional needs.

I have been extremely happy with my daughters care, and have seen her come on leaps and bounds since attending Jack and Jills. The staff are helpful and will always make sure they let you know what my little one has been up to during the session. My daughter enjoyed it from the start and I know she will miss it and all the staff when she starts school in September.

I moved my daughter here in January, as we had moved house, she always had problems settling in her previous nursery but settled here lovely and never had any tears or issues. Staff are very friendly and caring and great amount of space, my daughter loves the outdoor space, especially the mud kitchen!!!! It's a really lovely nursery, I just wish we found this before.

Thank you very much for your great review.

My son has only been to four sessions so far, he started 2 days after his second birthday and the staff have made every effort to make sure my son enjoys his time at nursery. He has settled in really well and although he cries when I leave, he has a fantastic time while he is there and is happy when he is home. The staff are helpful and welcoming and answer my questions regarding my son's time at each session. So far I am very pleased with my son's time at nursery and how he is doing while he is there.

I am very impressed with the quality of childcare my daughter has at Jack and Jill, she comes home happy after every session and she does a lot of outdoor and messy play which she absolutely loves. She started in March 2016 and has settled really well here.

Exceptionally professional childcare. The staff are very competent and have my child's best interests at heart, they take an active interest in her social and emotional learning and well being, as well as subtly preparing her for her transition into school. This is a fantastic setting, I visited a lot of nurseries and felt that 'Jack and Jill's' honestly nurture my child as opposed to just supervising children. I can wholeheartedly recommend 'Jack and Jill's' to any parent.
