Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 5 for Parc Nantgarw Acorns is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 5

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Parc Nantgarw Acorns is based on 5 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.417

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

My grandson has attended Parc Nantgarw Acorns since he was 8 months old. I can not praise the staff enough. He has grown into a funny, intelligent and clever little boy and that’s partially down to the wonderful staff who have become like an extension to our family. Keep up the good work Acorns.

Acorns Nursery is absolutely excellent. I am delighted with the way they care for my daughter. They provide a happy, safe, comforting environment. My daughter is developing at a significant rate with her speech, vocabulary and play skills. She interacts with other children well. Acorns have contributed to this process of development significantly. The nursery nurse is superb with my daughter.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. Every single member of staff I encounter is friendly, knowledgeable and professional and provide fantastic care for my fourteen-month little one. They arrange a wide variety of stimulating activities and my little one will often come home with new skills and sounds that she has been taught in the nursery. The nursery provides excellent, healthy and varied meals that you can see are cooked fresh on site as you walk past the kitchen full of fresh produce. Standards of cleanliness are also excellent. Management are extremely helpful and pleasant, and will always respond quickly if you have any questions.
In short, I never, ever have to worry about my little girl when leaving her in the care of Acorns. She always leaves there happy and smiling after a full day of fun. I would not send her anywhere else.

Nursery staff are well trained and friendly. I am reassured that if my son had any health issues that they would react appropriately.
The environment and activities are fantastic. The menu is varied, nutritious and of an excellent standard. The staff write daily report cards so I know what my son has been doing and how much food/milk he has had, which is so helpful.
The nursery holds free events and activities for all the family, which are extremely thoughtful.
My son loves it here.

My twin boys attend this nursery one day a week and I will say from day one, I've always felt comfortable for many reasons.
The nursery itself is well equipt and has that school like setting, the number of babies in each group is just right, my boys never look like they are overcrowded. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. The end of day reports are very detailed so you understand clearly exactly what they have done.
The outdoor garden is big and they carry out many creative activities.
My boys leave completely happy and shattered.
