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 4.958 for Spring Nursery RAF Waddington is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 3.94 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Spring Nursery RAF Waddington is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.190

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

I can't praise this nursery enough!
I am always well informed as to my child's progress, development and upcoming events within the nursery.
I love knowing that my child is fantastically well cared for, that he is surrounded by loving and caring staff and that the needs of my child come first.
I would (and have) recommended this setting to a number of parents.

Thank you very much for your fantastic review. It makes me feel so proud of my team to hear such positive feedback.

I just want to say a massive thank you to all the staff and workers at the nursery. My little one has come out of her shell so much since starting in September. She is talking more out in public (she only talked with people she knew for a while), she has even started joining in more activities in her class as well. She is always smiling and happy when I pick her up to come home! I also like that she is trying new foods as well. She enjoys and looks forward to going to nursery on her day! She get's up and wants to leave the house well before the nursery is even open!

Pam Cave, Manager at Spring Nursery RAF Waddington responded to this review on 06 Mar 2018:

This is so fantastic to hear. Thank you very much for your wonderful review.

My daughter started the nursery last September. She really struggled to begin with being separated from me. The nursery staff were absolutely fabulous and let me stay with her and did a very very gentle and gradual withdrawal. There was absolutely no pressure whatsoever to leave her whilst she wasn’t ready and I cannot say how grateful I was for the kind and caring nature of everyone through a really difficult time. My daughter now absolutely loves going she runs in and waves me off! I cannot believe the change and I will be forever grateful to the wonderful ladies who supported me and her.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It is so lovely to see how confident your daughter is now coming in.

Fantastic nursery, wonderful staff in a brilliant setting. Healthy and varied menu with many activities and themed days to keep the children interested. My daughter skips in happily and has come on no end since attending.
Thank you for all you do!
