Reviews

8.7 Building Blocks Pre-School & Daycare Ltd has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.725)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Building Blocks Pre-School & Daycare Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Building Blocks Pre-School & Daycare Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.796 for Building Blocks Pre-School & Daycare Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (154 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.796

  • 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Building Blocks Pre-School & Daycare 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

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

The care, support and educational activities in the nursery are outstanding. This is the best nursery and the staff and management are understanding and extremely professional. My daughter has demonstrated a happy attitude to learning and confidence in social skills and manners. I would give my highest recommendation to any parent looking for an affordable, safe, fun and supportive environment for their child.

My daughter loved the time she spent at the Building Block Nursery in Walton. They do lots of activities indoors and outdoors every day. The staff are great, they have work following a theme every month. My daughter learned a lot this way about the environment, social skills etc.

My daughter attended lots of great parties; like for Christmas, Halloween, birthday parties etc. She has not been at the nursery for a couple of months now, but every now and again she requests to go there. Well done to the staff.

I am very happy that my daughter has been at Building Blocks Pre-School. She has learnt a lot of words, has done activities and made friends. She is always happy to stay and play. All the staff are very good, the food is great, the games, activities are wonderful and enjoyable. I'll recommend the nursery in the future.

A wonderful nursery with kind and caring staff.

My older child didn't seem to enjoy her previous nursery, but as soon as she started at Building Blocks she couldn't wait to go. She progressed very well gaining in confidence (she loves dancing for everyone now) language and writing skills.

I was so impressed I put my younger daughter in too and saw instant improvement in her behaviour (she was a challenging terrible two), speech and confidence.

The school kept me very well informed and I loved the daily updates and kind advice and suggestions, to make sure both my children were always performing at their best. It was very clear that they always had my children's best interests at heart.

A lovely little nursery that I would not hesitate to recommend to parents.

My daughter arrived at Building Blocks in January of this year and she was warmly welcomed by Barkha and all the team. I have found the level of care outstanding and my daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her time here and also learnt such a lot in the friendly family environment.
I especially like the fact that the activities are so varied and interesting for the children - visits from the emergency services for learning purposes, as well as field visits to museums. On top of that they offer all the other added classes they can benefit from too (French, pyjama drama etc). I would highly recommend this nursery.

Both my children absolutely love going to nursery here. The staff are kind, knowledgeable and friendly. It is a clean, new environment with a fantastic outdoor area for the children to play in. It is a safe, well managed nursery with a lovely atmosphere. It has toys, facilities, arts and craft, messy play to suit all. I wish I could stay too!!!

The review concerning my child was very well conducted and was very constructive. The nursery described how my child was during the day, what activities they did and how my child reacted to them. The nursery also made suggestions for progressing my child further, although they said they had no concerns about where my child was at at this point in time.

My child is very happy at this nursery and the staff are all very friendly.

My daughter suffers from many life threatening allergies so sending her to nursery filled me with anxiety. However Building Blocks have been fantastic. They have gone above and beyond in ensuring that my daughter is in a safe environment. They always make me feel included and are brilliant at communicating with parents. My daughter is so happy there. My daughter is two years old, but since attending Building Blocks she has become more confident and has made phenomenal progress. She is learning phonics and is able to draw shapes. She will also be taking Karate and French classes. Building Blocks has a fantastic range of activities and my daughter is always stimulated.

My child is happy at day care - she gets fed and kept well so that she does not feel hungry or tired. She is well engaged so she hardly misses home. Good updates are given by the carers. Understanding and flexible carers.
