Reviews

9.2 Churchside Nursery - Home from Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.157)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Churchside Nursery - Home from Home 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 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Churchside Nursery - Home from Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.74 for Churchside Nursery - Home from Home is calculated as follows: ( (195 Excellents x 5) + (66 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 262 Ratings = 4.74

  • 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 Churchside Nursery - Home from Home 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.

It's the perfect nursery! I love it and the fact that I can see all the time what my child does at the nursery, including all the activities on the application. I love them, transparency and professional in all they do. My son loves to go there and doesn't want to come home. I love the idea that kids can feed the animals. My son is at the preschool now and I'm sorry that he can't stay at this nursery. Good luck!

I have been delighted with the care my son has received at Home from Home - The Nannery. Every possible care was taken to ensure that my son settled in well and he has been shown love and attention which has made me feel much better about leaving my son at nursery. The tapestry online system is excellent and there are regular updates which track his learning. The nursery is in a lovely bright space and the outside space is well used.

After looking at 7 nurseries for our son, we settled on Home from Home and have not been disappointed. There is a good balance between fun and learning and our son always comes home saying how much of a good day he's had. This, along with the excellent way his settling in period was handled as well as the on-demand access to the CCTV - have really given us peace of mind about a worrying and potentially stressful situation.
Our thanks go out to all the staff who have made this such a great experience for ourselves and most importantly our son.
