Reviews

8.8 The Owl & Pussycat Nursery has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.776)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for The Owl & Pussycat Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Owl & Pussycat Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 2 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 The Owl & Pussycat Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.776 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Owl & Pussycat Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 3.8 positive Reviews (19 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 3.8 Target = 0.526

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

Reviewer Connection to The Owl & Pussycat Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    2

We absolutely love The Owl & Pussycat. We searched for a long time for a small and personal nursery where our daughter wouldn't be swallowed up. Here she is one of a maximum of 6 babies, always with at least two wonderful staff, and always cared for incredibly well. The settling in process is kind and thorough, allowing you time and space to be comfortable from the child and parents perspective. Our Daughter has only been attending for a few weeks but already smiles when we approach the door and gets exciting to see The girls. We are raising our daughter bilingually with BSL, and the owner took the time to source books and other resources to help her team support our use of the language and carry on with what we are teaching at home, in Nursery. An incredibly thoughtful gesture that speaks volumes about their passion and dedication to the children in their care. We are thrilled and very grateful to have found the perfect Nursery for us and our little girl. Thank you O&P

The Owl & Pussycat Nursery is a fantastic choice for childcare. They have wonderful indoor and outdoor facilities and very caring and attentive staff. Daily feedback is provided on your child and they also hold a parents evening to formally review your child's progress. There are lots of structured educational and fun activities as well as play sessions. My child looks forward to seeing her friends and the staff. Makes it easier to be at work knowing she is happy and well cared for!
