The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 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 4.965 for La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.965

  • 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 3.711 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery 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 14.2 positive Reviews (71 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 14.2 Target = 0.211

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

Reviewer Connection to La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    12

An amazing nursery, filled with wonderful and enthusiastic staff. Our little girl is doing so well there and is progressing so fast in her language and development and praise has to go to all the team. The staff really listen and take on board any comments we have to make and do their best to implement/accommodate as many as they can.
Our little girl loves going there and gets so excited when we arrive which makes dropping her off so much better.
It is evident in the way that the staff talk about the children and the activities that they have done that day that they are extremely fond of the children, and really want them to enjoy their time there.
The management team have great organisation and are terrific at sorting out any queries that you may have promptly. One of the most important observations is that everyone always appears very happy and that shows just how nice a place it must be to work for and in turn for the children to go to.

La Maternelle was just good. The cleanliness was second to none and there was such a conscious effort in helping our precious one settle into nursery. They were very accommodating in every way especially the nursery manager and my son's key workers.
Gutted we had to relocate from Sandbach, it was so difficult fitting our son into a new nursery, he kept wondering where his key worker was. La Maternelle set the bar so high we found it really difficult to appreciate any nursery in our new location.
Keep up the good work and if we ever have to return to Sandbach, we hope there will be a space for our new babies. But for now, we would keep telling everyone how good this nursery is.

We are so pleased with La Maternelle's. It's a lovely nursery, welcoming and always a lovely atmosphere. My little girl has settled so well. It's organised, friendly and clean. I would highly recommend. I wish I had sent my little boy but La Maternelle's in Sandbach wasn't here when my little boy attended nursery.

Our son started at the nursery in June having recently moved to the area from Liverpool. He had previously been in my care from birth so this was a big transition for us both. I honestly couldn't have asked for any more from the nursery. They allayed any fears we had and kept us updated on his progress in his sessions both through the tapestry app and every evening at pick up. They have paired him with the perfect, nurturing key worker and we have total confidence in them. We have seen our son go through a huge leap in his development and confidence. I don't often write reviews and I certainly am not one to give a 10/10 on a whim but I genuinely feel this nursery deserves the praise. A huge thank you to the whole team for their hard work and dedication to excellent childcare!

What a fantastic nursery, full of outstanding staff. I was extremely nervous about my daughter starting nursery but the staff were amazing, both with myself and my daughter, settling in seemed a breeze.

Activities that are completed each day engage my daughter into learning through play. I receive updates via tapestry online learning journal showing pure happiness and enjoyment.

Thank you for such an outstanding nursery.

Fantastic nursery with amazing staff. My little girl started here in April and absolutely loves it. The staff have not only been great at helping her settle in so quickly but also been so kind looking after an emotional first-time mummy. The communication of how she's getting on, what food she's been trying, activities she's liked and photos for those all important memories has also been excellent.

Thank you for your lovely comments Claire. Taking the time to write the review is much appreciated.

Our daughter started at the nursery when she was 9 months old. The settling in sessions ensured that when she started she settled in straight away, which was a relief! Since then, we have been very happy with all aspects of the nursery. The staff are very attentive and helpful, the facilities are wide and varied for all ages, everything seems very clean and well maintained. We are delighted with the nursery and feel it provided an excellent childcare facility for our daughter.

La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery is a lovely nursery, my daughter is very happy here. I love the fact there is an online tapestry journal which you can see what the children have been doing in the day, that way I feel as though I'm not missing out on what she's been doing. It's very clean which I like in a nursery. The staff are all excellent and always make us feel very welcome. I'm currently pregnant and will definitely be sending baby no2 to La Maternelle Sandbach Day Nursery aswell. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone who asks.

La Maternell is a warm and welcoming nursery and the staff are all very friendly and can't do enough to help and support your little ones. There is always something different to do, and lots of choice when it comes to activities throughout the day. There is a wonderful outdoor space and all the rooms are bright an airy. The online learning journal is always wonderfully updated which makes you feel like you get to be part of your little ones day. It really is a great nursery and we would definitely recommend it to everyone!

I am so happy that I decided to send my daughter to this nursery. It's such a nice and fresh setting and all of the staff are lovely.
My daughter is only 11 months old and she is very happy. She gets excited when I drop her off in the morning and is happy and content when I collect her late afternoon.

I was really nervous sending my daughter to nursery. I had never left her with anybody before, but as soon as I went to La Maternelle I was made to feel at ease.
The setting is lovely, loads for the kids to do. The staff are amazing, very caring and attentive to both parent and child. The get healthy meals and snacks and are always kept in a clean nappy and clothes.
Since my daughter has attended she has come on so much and really enjoys her time there. So glad I found La Maternelle, I thought I would be able to pick flaws in it but I definitely can't.
