The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.917 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.768 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.268

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

Our daughter joined Monkey Puzzle last October at 1 and a half years old. We can't thank the staff enough for all their hard work in looking after our daughter. She has learnt so much and has become independent and sociable. I always felt reassured that our daughter would be cared for. Due to a change in our family circumstances, we had to move away. It was quite heart wrenching to say the least that our daughter had to leave Monkey Puzzle. Gone but never forgotten.
Thank you all for giving our daughter the best start we could have hoped for. Our daughter is settling again now but it was very difficult to find somewhere new as the standards at Monkey Puzzle are the highest any parent or guardian could wish for. We miss everyone every day. Thank you so much.

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney is a brilliant nursery that has cultivated an exceptional learning environment for my son filled with bright colours and warm and friendly staff members. My son absolutely loves spending time at nursery and is always eager to get to nursery which can only be a good thing.

I have found the staff at the nursery both friendly and attentive and it is clear that they really spend time getting to know not just my son but the other children as well. As a parent its great to know that the necessary observations are being carried out and habits are being identified. The management team are also keen that the nursery keeps on improving for the better and regularly enlists the support of the parents to provide feedback for them to build upon.

I really feel as though the nursery fosters a great culture for children to learn as a working Mother it's great to know that my son is happy there and is being properly cared for.

Thank you Monkey Puzzle, Hartley Wintney

Cherry Newnham, Owner at Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Hartley Wintney responded to this review on 18 Apr 2017:

Thank you, Janine, for your lovely review. It is an absolute pleasure to care for your son and we are so grateful for your kind words and support over the last few months.

I wanted to say a big thank you for everything that you are doing at the nursery.

Moving nursery was a big decision, but we are so glad that we made the decision to come to you. The experience could not be more different.

Our little girl is engaged every single day, she is learning well through play, her language skills have come on brilliantly, and I know how strong her relationships are particularly with her key workers, she even asks to see them at the weekends!

From a parents perspective obviously the fact that she is safe and happy is of utmost importance, but having the regular updates on her day using the Eylog app is really beneficial and, and the assessment on her learning stages was interesting too.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team and to let you know that I genuinely believe you’d be hard pushed to find a nursery where the children would have more fun, engagement and learning opportunities.

My son has been at Monkey Puzzle Hartley Wintney since he was 1 since it opened in January 2016. I have been really happy with the nursery, he has come on leaps and bounds in his social side and language. Before he spoke he was singing (humming) songs like Humpty Dumpty and Twinkle twinkle little star with all the hand movements and this was something I had not taught him and was delighted how he had learnt this. My son takes important daily medication that the team have never missed and been diligent in the awkward way he has to have it!

The staff are kind and compassionate, which for me is the most important factor than hours of paperwork that has to be done these days in nurseries. It is a newer nursery which might worry some, but with that is freshness, passion, modern faculties and an eagerness to always improve the nursery. I know my son gets lots Of cuddles, care kindness and this is the most important thing while I am at work.

All in all, we really love it !

Thank you, Jo, your son is an absolute delight and has really flourished at the nursery. We are thrilled to have been able to encourage his development and we love him to bits!

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery has been fantastic for my slightly nervous 2-year-old daughter. The staff are warm and enthusiastic and make a real effort to attend to the different needs and likes/dislikes of each child. The children take part in a brilliant range of activities and the nursery building is bright and modern with a fantastic outside space. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Your daughter has made fantastic progress with us over the last few months and we love having her at nursery!

My son loves this place, and his development had come on leaps and bounds since he started attending. He loves the art and craft activities, story time, and running around the playground. The staff are fantastic, and he's made some good friends. I highly recommend this nursery.
