Reviews

7.1 Small Wonders Day Care Nursery has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.079)

The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for Small Wonders Day Care 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 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.962 for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (254 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 262 Ratings = 4.962

  • 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 2.117 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Small Wonders Day Care Nursery is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 30 positive Reviews (150 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 30 Target = 0.233 , then divided by 2 = 0.117

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

My daughter has been at Small Wonders Peasley Cross since she was 9 months old and even though she only does two mornings a week her development is just amazing! She was crawling by 10 months walking at 13 months and now she's 2 on Sunday, and we have full conversations, she's reads me stories, sings me songs, runs around and dances away. And I know that she dotes on the girls as they do her. Thank you for encouraging every milestone and I'm sure she looks forward to many more mornings with you.

My granddaughter has been attending Small Wonders since Jan 2015 when it very first opened. Being my only grandchild I was very anxious when my daughter told me that she would be going to nursery, but I can honestly say there was no need for me to worry. Small wonders have gone above and beyond for my family and I know that my granddaughter is in good hands. The staff and management are always helpful and very welcoming at all times.

My son loves coming to nursery everyday and tells me about all the fun he's had in nursery with his friends. He has a good bond with all the staff throughout the nursery. All staff are friendly and lovely to talk to and I am able to speak to them. I am very happy with the care and education of my child.

I first enrolled my daughter at Small Wonders when she was only 7 months old. I was very nervous at first as I had never left her before. The baby room staff have taken the very best care of her and now she gets very excited when we come into the car park. The management team are very helpful and accommodating for our needs. I honestly couldn't recommend this place enough. The staff team and facilities are beyond excellent!

My little girl has been at the Peasley Cross Small Wonders nursery full time for nearly 4 months and I can't praise the staff enough. She has come on leaps and bounds and all our friends and family comment how quick she is learning. I was very anxious about leaving her to return to work as she was very clingy up until starting nursery. Now she runs through the door with open arms for the staff in her room and even claps her hands when we arrive in the car each morning:) It makes going to work so much easier knowing she is being well looked after and more importantly she's happy:) Fantastic nursery and lovely friendly staff.

After searching for months to find the perfect nursery for our 10 month old son we are happy to say that we finally have. When myself and my partner went to have a look around the nursery the management were nothing but helpful. They answered all of our questions and concerns and were very informative about the setting. The baby room staff are always welcoming and always let us know about how his day has been. As a parent, putting our baby into nursery was very daunting and we were really nervous at first but I can honestly say that we couldn't of chose a better place. Our son loves going to nursery and has learnt so much in such a short space of time. I would defiantly recommend Small Wonders.

My 2 year old twins have been at the nursery for a year now. They absolutely love it. I was worried to begin with as they had been at another nursery, but it unexpectedly closed so needed a new nursery quick. I looked at several, but my gut instinct kept telling me go for Small Wonders and I was right.
The staff are always friendly and helpful.
They learn so much and have fun at the same time.
I would definitely recommend the nursery to others.

My three year old son has been attending nursery since January 2015, for one afternoon a week. Since starting I cannot believe the progress he has made, he has become a confident little boy with lots of friends. The staff are wonderful and provide lots of fun learning opportunities for the children.

Our daughter started in February when she was 6 months old, she was at that stage were she would go to no one other than her dad and me. I took her in for her first day she went straight to them and didn't even notice me leave and it's been like that ever since. She loves the place and has developed such a great personality. Thank you to the staff at Small Wonders for helping her. Each day she changes and learns more we are so happy with the place.

I recently enrolled my 2 year old into the nursery after debating long and hard over which establishment I thought was best suited to our requirements. I can honestly say that from my first visit the management staff could not do enough for me, my wife and our daughter. They have genuinely taken into account the values and concerns that we have as parents; and have done the utmost to ensure these have been addressed and incorporated into their care of our girl. In addition, she has grown attached to the room staff already and has come on leaps and bounds in the first few weeks of being in the care of this fabulous nursery. I wouldn't look anywhere else.

Since my daughter started in April, she has loved every minute. The staff are really nice and she shared a strong bond with her two teachers. Even on an off day, when she didn't want to leave me, the teachers would handle it well and she would then be at ease. Every time I collected her, they would tell me everything about her, e.g she was fine after she was upset and what she had to eat during her stay, I'm going to miss taking my daughter and I know she will miss it, but I will definitely be back when my son is bigger.
