Reviews

9.8 Buttercups Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.776)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Buttercups Pre-school 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buttercups Pre-school 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 4.776 for Buttercups Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (113 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.776

  • 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 Buttercups Pre-school 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 4 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.

As a nursery should be, a warm, happy environment. Not too much pressure on the structure requirements but the natural development of the individual.

My daughter has been attending this pre-school since January 2016. All the staff are very friendly, kind and easy to talk to and ask advice from. I always experience a personal update after every session as to how she has got on. They always go out of their way to provide activities to ensure she is always progressing. My daughter has had health problems which they have understood and helped to ensure she receives the proper medication and care. To have this excellent support and trust is a big benefit so I can relax and concentrate at work knowing she is in excellent hands.

Buttercups Pre-school provides a truly wonderful experience for every child. Staff are calm, attentive and nurturing. My daughter loves going there and always has stories to tell her friends and family about her experience there. Staff keep parents well informed and create opportunities for parents to attend with their children for special learning and play activities. I feel very happy knowing that my child's needs are carefully considered in this setting. I cannot recommend Buttercups enough.

The staff are extremely professional with a personal touch and took extra care of our son, who is the youngest in the group. We are impressed with the rotation of activities, which provides variation and interest for the children. There are several children with extra needs who seem to be well catered for, although the preschool could certainly benefit from more staff/resources. In general, the children are all well behaved and the environment is conducive to learning.

I can confirm that my son was extremely happy during his 2 years of attending Buttercups Preschool. The staff are well trained, professional, caring and kind! They have been consistently understanding and flexible to all needs. The communication is great between the staff and parents. The atmosphere is happy, safe and relaxed. I am pleased to say that when my son joined Primary School he had been taught the basics such as writing his name, writing numbers from 1-10, recognize the basic shapes and colours. As well as this, he was taught how to sit still, concentrate, share and interact with other children. All of this stood him in very good stead for joining Primary School. I am more than happy to recommend Buttercups Preschool to any parent who is considering sending their child to pre-school.

My youngest attended Buttercups for nearly 2 years before he left to go to school and I couldn’t be happier with his time there. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times and it was obvious they all loved the children. I was always made aware of how he had got on that day and trusted that I would be contacted if there were any problems, not that there ever was. Without a doubt, with the help of the staff, his time at Buttercups has made his transition to school a whole lot easier.

Very friendly staff. My son loved every minute he was there. He learnt a lot during his time. He enjoyed all the variety of activities done on a frequent basis and learnt a lot of diverse information. Would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

My youngest child has spent an incredibly happy 2 years here and I've already recommended it to several parents of toddlers! The staff are amazing! Having had 2 older children attend a different nursery I am so glad I made the step to use Buttercups as the service all round was of a much higher quality to what I'd experienced before!

This is a fantastic preschool, my son loved and learned so much over the 2 years he was there. The team at Buttercups were brilliant with him, especially in the build-up for primary school, looking forward to sending his sister next September 2018.

I have been sending my son to this nursery part-time for the last two years and he has been supported with his learning and socialising with other children really well.

All the staff are really friendly, professional and genuinely caring and take the time to discuss any issues or concerns which put my mind at rest when I first started to leave my son in their care.

It was lovely to see each child had their own special book full of photos and activities that they had been up to. My son comes home most weeks telling me about all the exciting activities he has been up to, which is very reassuring from a mother's perspective.

I can't recommend this little village pre-school highly enough.
