The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Acorns-in-Adel Private Day Nursery, Adel 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Acorns-in-Adel Private Day Nursery, Adel in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.75 for Acorns-in-Adel Private Day Nursery, Adel is calculated as follows: ( (146 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorns-in-Adel Private Day Nursery, Adel is based on 16 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target Reached = 1

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

We chose this nursery as it was the closest to home and we were very pleased to see that our son loves it.
His key worker is very attentive and encouraging and the staff make lots of effort to adapt activities and toys to the interest of the children, including laminated pictures with the words in French for my son who we are raising bilingual, a lovely personal touch.

Fantastic nursery! The staff are very friendly and really informative, they always give a detailed account of your child's day.

My son has done a lot of 1st's at nursery in November and I certainly believe the staff and other children have been a big contribution to his development. Acorns is my very first experience of nursery/childcare and I can certainly say it has been a great one so far.

Thanks to each and every member of staff at Acorns. Keep doing what you are doing, you are all fantastic!

Our two children attended Acorns, between July 2010 and July 2017. The standard of care and attention to the children is very high. The setting is quite small and therefore feels personal. We felt that the staff really got to know our children and our children both very much enjoyed their days at Acorns as a consequence. The management team leads the staff very well and there exists an open line of communication for parents - there are regular open evenings/afternoons and newsletters, and the end of day feedback is detailed.

I moved my son here after being unhappy with changes to his previous nursery. I could not be happier with the change. The environment is wonderful, very homely but full of fun things to do and lots of light and outside spaces. The staff are fantastic they known the children very well and clearly build close relationships with them. They take the time to identify things to work on and support you and your child to achieve them. I am always asking staff for advice as they have so much experience. The food is wonderful, a massive variety and he eats things I would never think to give him.
He has made lovely friendships and the size of the groups is small enough that he gets enough attention but big enough that he meets a great variety of children.
I can't recommend Acorns enough.

We have had our children in this nursery for the past 8 years. The recent changes in management, have led to a quick drive to improve standards and provision and a massive increase in staff morale. The nursery is small and family orientated, with great care and compassion shown. We feel staff know the children and parents well, resulting in us feeling confident in their ability to care for our child as we would. The new resources are current and stimulating, which will help children to learn.

We chose Acorns-in-Adel Privater Day Nursery as our day nursery because we felt so good about the vibe of the nursery and its staff. There have been changes in management and some staff since our daughter joined; however, these have had nothing but a positive impact as far as we can see. The staff are so caring, engaged and encourage learning. The facilities, games and toys are all suitable and the music/movement session they do is a fantastic idea, most loved by our girl. We were also impressed by the food menu provided, such a good selection of tastes and consistencies for a growing palette. Overall we can't find fault and are still very happy with our choice of care for our daughter; so much so we have already recommended it to her baby cousin.

This is a lovely, friendly and homely nursery.
The staff are all lovely and genuinely care about all of the children.
They work well as a team, led by a strong management and provide a lovely experience and environment for the children.
The kids eat well as they enjoy the healthy, balanced and home cooked meals and their appetite for learning is also well cared for with an interesting and varied programme of activities, both inside and out in the play areas.

The staff at Acorns have a fabulous relationship with the children. My little boy struggled to settle initially and the staff have gone over and above to assist with his transition. Communication is excellent and the staff have willingly spoken to me on a regular basis to inform me of his progress. My little boy now comes home enthusiastic about his day and eager to tell us all about the wonderful things he has been up to. Acorns are a brilliant nursery and that is down to the hard work, dedication and relationships of the staff with both parents and children.

Acorns has seen a number of changes over the past year but I am pleased to say the current team are excellent and have built a welcoming and stimulating environment for our daughter. She loves the healthy, homemade food made in the kitchen and has great fun in the newly built woodland area. The staff are nurturing and genuinely care for the children. Very pleased with the nursery and would recommend to others.

My daughter has been at Acorns-in-Adel for a few months now having moved her from another nursery. All the staff at Acorns have made what could have been a difficult time, a seamless transition. All the staff are very friendly and caring, create a warm and safe environment for the children and know the children very well which supports their development. My daughter has come on so much since starting and loves going to nursery. There is freshly prepared food for the children every day and a nice outdoor space for them to play. The inside space is also very nice. I feel communication is really good between staff and management to parents which is so important.
