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 4.867 for Spring Nursery RAF Honington is calculated as follows: ( (52 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 4.194 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Spring Nursery RAF Honington 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 25.8 positive Reviews (129 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 25.8 Target = 0.194

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

Reviewer Connection to Spring Nursery RAF Honington

  • Mother of Child
    5

My children use the nursery and the den for before and after school and both services are outstanding. Not only do my children love going they have excelled in their personalities and willingness to learn. There is always a variety of learning and activities incorporating national and local celebrations. The nursery is clean and welcoming and the food is prepared fresh and they cater to the fussy eaters and encourage them to try new foods!
Could not fault anything, all the staff are fantastic, including the office staff.

Spring Nursery RAF Honington is a ‘home from home’, my son has been going there for 16 months now and he loves it. The staff are very friendly and excellent at supporting parents whilst partners are serving away (supporting the RAF family).
The setting is spacious, especially good outside space, with age-appropriate toys and activities.
Meals are varied and made fresh in the kitchen on site, lots of healthy choices!
I would highly recommend Spring Nursery RAF Honington.

The nursery is excellent. My eldest has been in since 18 months and he’s now almost 4 and loves going in! My youngest has just started and the staff in his room could not have made me or my little one feel more at ease. They have gone above and beyond to make sure he has settled and I am comfortable leaving him while I work.

Lovely nursery with a wide range of stimulating activities, hot meals provided and the loveliest well-trained staff. All four of my children have benefited from attending either as preschoolers or after school/ holiday club.

My daughter has been in attendance at Spring Nursery since she was 4 months old. doing 1/2 a day per week. She is now 20 months old and attends 4 days a week. The team in her room are happy, approachable and caring. She genuinely loves going there and I have watched her come on leaps and bounds with their support in her every day learning. The room is interactive, fun, clean and suited perfectly for the development ages. There is a good communication level between the team and me, and I feel very happy in the fact that I can speak with them in confidence. It's nice going to work with the peace of mind that my daughter is being looked after by people that genuinely care for her, and have her best interests in mind. I would highly recommend Spring to families that want a happy, clean and safe environment that is good value for money.
