Reviews

9.1 Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Aylesbury has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.077)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Aylesbury 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Aylesbury in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 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 4.521 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Aylesbury is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.521

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Aylesbury is based on 8 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.556

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

There have been so many positive developments in recent months it has been wonderful to see the nursery grow. The environment is always positive and I am always happy to leave my son there. He clearly loves the daily activities and doesn't want to leave sometimes when I go to collect him! The staff have a very genuine, caring approach and a genuine interest in my son both inside and outside of the nursery.

My 9-month-old daughter loves going to nursery, she's very excited when we pull into the car park and never wants to leave! She's cared for in every single way that a first-time mum could ask for, she's always happy, eats well and sleeps well too. I couldn't ask for better care for my daughter. She has grown and developed extremely well since coming to Monkey Puzzle and she continues to impress me every day with new things she has learnt at the nursery.

I have been sending my son here since April 2017 and I am extremely happy with the care he receives. His carers are really attentive to his needs and adapt to any changes. I have seen him grow and learn new things really quickly which I know he has learned from being at nursery. It is a lovely environment with lots of toys and displays of children's artwork that all changes regularly to keep it interesting for them. I drop my son off and go to work feeling assured that he is going to be looked after and is having fun and learning at the same time.

I have been fortunate enough to have been onboard with Monkey Puzzle since it opened. I was initially impressed with how well thought out the facility is and the genuine intentions of the staff. I have seen the learning curve that the management and staff have been on and experienced first hand the growing pains have presented but notwithstanding all of these, it is clear that at no point have any of these issues been to the detriment of my children's learning. I feel the value of being a parent whose children attend Monkey Puzzle and feel that any feedback is taken into account and actioned. I would not hesitate to recommend Monkey Puzzle to friends and family.

While being in the baby room (my child only recently moved rooms), she was well cared for and supported. She has been developing appropriately for her age. Any issues that have been mentioned eg, nappy rash, it was addressed quickly. I have been concerned about the limited opportunity for assessment and feedback to me as a parent in relation to the development of my child. A new nursery that are making changes ...
