  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.833 for Flying Start Day Nursery Chigwell Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (268 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 312 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Flying Start Day Nursery Chigwell Ltd is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.375

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

I think the nursery is run extremely well by staff.

My daughter has settled in so well, with lots of encouragement from the staff.

The learning is fantastic as she can count up to 30, and recognises shapes and numbers. I also track her progress online which the staff update on a regular basis.

Overall I am very satisfied and happy with my daughter's progress.

We found the best nursery. My daughter loves this place and all the staff from the beginning. Teaching with modern tools and creative activities keep my daughter excited and interested day by day. They teach with many funny, varied ways to be ready for school.

I can see a smile on my daughter's face when we arrive at the nursery every day, and I see the same when I pick her up. This is all I need.

All the teachers teach the children what is necessary for their age. They regularly upload observations of my child. This really helps me as a parent to see what my child is doing.

The nursery is teaching my son a lot. He only just started this January and his speech has improved drastically. He has learnt the days of the week and his interpersonal skills have also improved. Thanks.

I'm really happy with how the staff handle my boy. He has learnt a lot since he started his 15 hours in September and he achieved a lot in 5 months that he's been there more often. He loves how his teachers are loving and caring and he tells us about how he played with water, sand, leaves or bugs. In his talks only we can make out how hard the staff work to teach them new things and still manage to make them have fun. My son loves his nursery.

My daughter started in September 2016. She settled in straight away after never being in childcare before. This was very reassuring especially being a single parent and this is obviously a direct result of her being happy and welcomed in this nursery. It's an amazingly warm environment and feels like home from home. The teachers are patient and my daughter loves them.

This nursery is very good, safe, friendly, hygienic and a lovely place for all the children. I am extremely satisfied with all the staff, each and every one of them. Snack time is also so much fun for my child. I couldn't have asked for a better nursery for my child.
The main head teacher is always so kind and helpful. I would give it overall 5 stars.
Well done FSDN team!! :)

It's taken me over a year to walk into a nursery and feel comfortable but flying start defiantly did that. And I have viewed several in surrounding areas. The facilities are great and the level of care that is great. My child is learning as well as having fun.

We are extremely happy that the care Flying Start Day Nursery gives. My son has developed so much within the last few months with his learning skills and confidence. I get regular updates on his skills and development, He has a great rapport with the staff and the other children and they engage well with him and his needs. The activities provided to the children are varied, adventurous and creative. We feel we made a good decision sending him there. Excellent nursery overall.
