Reviews

9.3 Barley Barn Enfield Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.292)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Barley Barn Enfield Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barley Barn Enfield Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 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 4.542 for Barley Barn Enfield Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.542

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barley Barn Enfield Day Nursery is based on 12 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.750

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

Barley Barn was instantly welcoming. Having come from an educational background myself I was very in tune with what I wanted for my son - Barley Barn is the place for him.

His carer is so amazingly caring, relaxed and informative, and the environment is stress-free and highly productive to my son's learning. He wants to cuddle all the staff in the morning to say hello. At only 14 months, this level of trust was evidence of his sheer happiness here.
He is never in tears or frustrated when I collect him. He loves it here.

There is no need to look for another nursery when you view here - it's homely and incredible.

Since the nursery was taken over by Asquith, it has improved in many areas. I'm a lot happier with the quality of staff and the number of activities they seem to do with the children. Especially the staff in the baby room, who are very loving and caring and reassure you they are in good hands.

Generally, we are happy with the nursery setting. Our children have really good relationships with the staff in both the baby room and pre-school. The settling in process for babies has greatly improved which was reassuring especially as it took a while for my baby to settle.
Since Asquith have taken over, we have noticed a lot of glossy advertising. It is great that there is good communication but wonder whether the money on advertising could be used better for other things to make life more convenient for parents like providing formula, nappies and wipes which was very useful before.

We are delighted to hear you found our settling in process effective and that you are happy with the care you receive at our nursery. As always we appreciate parents' feedback and endeavour to use it in order to make improvements within the nursery setting. As a group provider of premium childcare, we have a well-established marketing team which aims to communicate in a manner befitting our clientele. We would like to reassure you that this does not affect the services provided at our nurseries. If you wish to discuss this in detail as well as how we can assist to further meet your needs and those of your child. We look forward to seeing you in nursery soon.

Our daughter had a very good settling in period. Her hours and days were increased gradually from a few hours then to a whole day. This enabled her to have a smooth settling in period. The staff and management are very friendly and interact extremely well with the children. The facilities are good and the food and snacks are excellent.

Both my children really enjoy attending Barley Barn. My son has settled in very well and is very happy with his key worker. The nursery has been refurbished but there are still no smart boards which is disappointing as my daughter will only be at Barley Barn until July 2017. The outside space is poor in comparison. The carpark needs security lighting as it is dangerous at night with parents and children walking through it whilst cars are reversing. Overall we are happy with the nursery.

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery, we always appreciate parent feedback.

We are glad that overall your experience has been positive, however, we do take on board your comments. Our refurbishment is still underway, therefore, you will see some ongoing improvements in most areas. We are hoping that the investments will be completed by spring 2017 and that you will see the benefits of the refit soon.

As always, if you wish to discuss this further or any other aspect of our nursery, please do pop into the office when next in nursery. Our door is always open.

They have a great duty of care towards my child. Managing his behaviour as he can be difficult at times. My son comes home happy after each day. There are always different activities and they take everyone's individual circumstances into consideration.

My daughter has only attended settling in sessions at Barley Barn and I am so happy with her progress. All the staff are fantastic with her and she is enjoying her sessions. I feel so much more comfortable going back to work now knowing she is in safe hands and all the girls love her.
There is a new activity every day and that's what I love for my daughter.
