Reviews

7.1 Junior's Day Nursery Tonbridge has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.096)

The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for Junior's Day Nursery Tonbridge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Junior's Day Nursery Tonbridge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 9 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 4.75 for Junior's Day Nursery Tonbridge is calculated as follows: ( (83 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 2.346 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Junior's Day Nursery Tonbridge is based on 9 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.692 , then divided by 2 = 0.346

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

This has been a fantastic nursery for our daughter who has been attending since she was 9 months old. Her key worker is excellent and my daughter goes to her with open arms in the morning. The communication is outstanding, the weekly reports are very informative and I have received nothing but outstanding care for my daughter. I would highly recommend this nursery, it is very hard leaving my daughter and the fact that she settles immediately and is so happy here makes it that little bit easier.

Fabulous warm and welcoming nursery, who have been brilliant with our son. Very nurturing care and good carer/parent feedback and communication. We've been very impressed with the range of diversity and the activities on offer for the children. Our son has a great relationship with his carers and genuinely looks forward to his days at nursery.

My 18 month old daughter has been going to Junior's 2 days a week since she was 11 months. She settled in really quickly and this was mainly due to the staff. The setting is wonderful with so many different activities, my daughter loves going and is always eager to go in the morning. Her development has also come on and this is mainly down to her key workers encouragement. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter is thoroughly enjoying attending Junior's. Her development, especially her speech has come on in leaps and bounds. The staff are all excellent, always provide proper handover each day and take and active interest in my daughter's activities outside nursery to include in her planning at nursery so it feels like we are working together for both her development and well-being.
The nursery provides a wide range of activities that my daughter loves - music and movement and baking are particular favourites. She really loves her books and her carer patiently reads many with her.

The staff at Junior's are very caring, professional and refreshingly full of energy. They appear to be very attentive to each childs needs and take the time to build a rapport with the children and the parents. Daily activities are based around learning, but made to feel like fun! It's great to get photographs and daily feedback about the childrens day. Food choices are healthy, balanced and varied, and staff give us detailed reports. The semi covered outside space is fun and well provisioned with interesting activities. We are very happy with the nursery, and thoroughly recommend it!

Our daughter started at Juniors 6 weeks ago and we are delighted by the quality of care that all the staff give her. The baby room is bright and airy, and well organised. It is a lot more peaceful than previous nurseries so our daughter gets a chance to rest during the day.

The staff are very thorough and attentive, and successfully stimulate the children with great activities and games. There is excellent communication and management is very dedicated. They also occasionally organise sessions where the parents can sign and sing, which is great as we can then practice with them at home.

Junior's is a lovely nursery, the team are really warm and friendly and the children are really happy. The team work hard to make sure the children settle in well, my son loves it there. It's great seeing the other staff from different rooms all make an effort from day 1, so he will easily move to the next room when he is ready.

My daughter joined Juniors when it first opened in Summer last year. Since her first day we have never regretted our decision to move her to Junior. The facilities are so well thought out. With the children's play, learning, sleeping and safe guarding all taken into account. The food is excellent no sugary snacks/desserts a very healthy balanced menu. Finally the staff are amazing! my daughter loves going and clearly benefits from their expertise and care. Staff clearly know her well and we receive regular feedback highly recommend it.
