Reviews

7.3 The Chase Nursery Clacton has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.339)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for The Chase Nursery Clacton 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 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Chase Nursery Clacton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 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 4.839 for The Chase Nursery Clacton is calculated as follows: ( (271 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 310 Ratings = 4.839

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Chase Nursery Clacton 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • 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 started the nursery in September 2016 after previously attending another nursery, unfortunately, she did not settle in the other nursery as she is very shy so I had to withdraw her. the chase have been so good with my daughter her 1st 2 days there was lots of tears but on the 3rd day and ever since she goes in with the biggest smile. She comes home and talks constantly about what they having been doing and learning and sings lots of new songs. The staff are all very friendly and take the time to speak to you every day.

My two-year-old daughter started this nursery at the beginning of the year. She loves it so much she talks about the staff at home all the time. She would happily go 7 days a week if she could! The staff are all very friendly and listen to any concerns. They also communicate progress and development. The nursery always looks good and is clean too.

Our daughter has been going to The Chase since January (10 months). She loves it there. We have been very impressed with the quality of the nursery - everything is thought through and done to high standards. The staff are lovely and always very helpful when we have questions. I don't think we could have found a better nursery for our daughter!

The Chase Nursery is fantastic. My daughter is 17 months old and we attend the mother and toddler group. The staff are fabulous and are very attentive to my daughter. They will happily play with her and if she is upset then they will cheer her up. I am so happy with the nursery that I have already signed her up to start her education there when she is two and a half.

My son had a free session on 27/10/15, he's been here once before but I stayed with him, he went off to play straight away. I wasn't worried I knew he would be fine, he did lots of activities while he was there. He really enjoyed himself and he knew some children that went too, I would pay £15 to put him in again, very worth the money. All staff are lovely and friendly.

I think it's a lovely nursery. My daughter went here for holiday club and loved it! She did pumpkin making and cakes and dipped marshmallow in chocolate. This nursery has lots to do and keeps the children occupied. I love the inbuilt sandpit too. I will be sending my daughter in the holidays every year.

From the moment I walked into the nursery I knew it was perfect. It is bright and airy with lots of stimulation for the children. Well organised and such friendly but extremely professional hard working staff that really do give that special care to every child.
Definitely recommend this nursery. My son had a lovely time attending a Halloween party with so many activities to take part in!

My child has only just started at The Chase Nursery. She has bonded with the teachers very fast. The staff are very helpful and they support my daughter's disability as best as they can. My child has also made friends at the nursery and loves to go.

My son attends the Holland branch of the nursery, but attended this nursery for a holiday club event and had a fabulous time! He made cakes, drew pictures, did painting and apparently loved the indoor sand pit.

As the mother of a child with additional needs, I would highly recommend this nursery. Staff are so friendly and supportive; nothing is too much trouble for parents or children. The staff understand and empathise with my son's needs and go to great lengths to engage and support him in the nursery environment. I can see he has been well cared for whilst being at the nursery and I have great confidence in all the staff.

All the way home from the holiday club my son was telling me he had good fun with his key worker. He even talked with me about some of his pictures for a short period, which he never normally does. I can see my son flourishing at nursery in general and it was no different at the holiday club. The positivity The Chase has brought to my son's life and the vital role they play as part of a wider team of childcare and paediatric professionals is commendable.

My son is often unable to communicate to me how he is feeling, but the fact that he always comes home from nursery with a massive smile on his face is testament to the wonderful people who work at The Chase Nurseries. Thank you all and keep up the good work!

Having previously taken my son out of a different nursery I feel like my son has learnt so much and become more confident since being at the chase nursery. His speech has come on excellently and his socials skills have too. He's always asking when he's going to be going next and how he loves the painting and activities that they do there on a daily basis. Would thoroughly recommend The Chase nursery to all my friends.
