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 4.823 for Clever Crocs Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (80 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.823

  • 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 3.994 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clever Crocs Day Nursery 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 16.4 positive Reviews (82 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 16.4 Target = 0.244

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

My son found his first few weeks at nursery a little stressful but the staff were wonderful at distracting him at drop off and helping him to feel safe and settled. He now beams at the end of a nursery day. It is very comforting to know my little boy is in caring and nurturing hands when at nursery. We are very pleased we chose to enrol our son in Clever Crocs and hope our son continues to thrive here.

My son has attended Clever Crocs since May 2016, for 18 months. Ever since he has started he has loved his time at nursery with the other children and especially the staff. My son has developed well during his time at the nursery in terms of speech and being able to count to 10 at the age of 2. When I drop my son at nursery each day, the staff are amazing, friendly and welcoming, taking a genuine interest in my son. I would recommend the nursery to anyone. It's a wonderful, amazing place for children to have fun and learn.

Excellent nursery. Just the right size- small enough to be friendly and welcoming but large enough to meet the needs of the children as they grow and develop.
The staff are very caring and know the children very well.
The management team are amazing- very accommodating and flexible. The fact that the managers are hands-on and seen as a real strength.

My daughter has really enjoyed attending Clever Crocs since nine months old and has really come out of her shell. The staff are helpful, kind and encouraging when it comes to learning and becoming a more independent toddler.

Absolutely amazing nursery. Staff go above and beyond for the children. The food menu is great, healthy and a good selection. For the outstanding care the children receive, prices are really cheap. They do day trips for picnics, library and farms etc. They even have an "outside play area" which is amazing! Couldn't ask for a better experience than my son got at Clever Crocs! Highly recommend to anyone!

My daughter goes 1 full day a week and absolutely loves it. The staff are outstanding and will go that extra mile with the children. They have a lovely climbing frame with a slide. Would highly recommend Clever Crocs. They are fantastic.

My two boys attend Clever Crocs and have done so since the day they opened. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. They provide us with lovely feedback to how the boys days have been. The activities provided always look very fun and the children always look well engaged when I drop the boys of. The boys are always happy to go into nursery and always come home telling us how good their days have been. Our four year old has even learnt to write lots of words since starting nursery. Thank you so much to all of the staff for taking care of our boys and providing a safe and stimulating environment for them. This puts our minds at ease whilst we are at work!

I feel very relaxed when I drop my baby girl of at nursery. I know the staff are fantastic with her and she loves going. When I come to collect her, I always see her smiling away playing with the other babies. It's a joy to see and know I am leaving her in safe hands. Happy baby, happy mummy! I have already recommended the nursery to friends. Thank you for your outstanding care.
