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 4.946 for Vantage Park Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (227 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.946

  • 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 Vantage Park Day Nursery is based on 10 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

Our 2 daughters were initially at a different nursery which we weren’t happy with, so we looked round Vantage Park Day Nursery as a possible alternative. We were so impressed we transferred them as soon as we could and are so pleased we did.
The settling in sessions were excellent - our eldest (then 3) was asking when she could go back and our youngest (then 18 months) was more than happy to be left there.
They have now been there for just over a year and absolutely love it. They do a huge variety of activities (including an actual woodwork bench for the preschool room), and the garden facilities are brilliant. The nursery follows the forest school initiative which is fantastic - getting them involved in outdoor activities whatever the weather.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the nursery. The staff are fantastic and genuinely care about the children and the nursery facilities are exceptional. I am very happy leaving both my girls there which, for me, is the real testament of how pleased I am with Vantage Park Day Nursery.

Our Little girl started going to Vantage Park Day Nursery in January at 9 months old, for just one Day a week, she settled in so well, we had had our minds put at ease by the staff who are loving, caring and supportive of both parents and children. The bonds they develop with the children, reassures me that my daughter will happily go to them when I drop her off and she still has that smile when I collect her. A great setting, with brilliant facilities, they have some amazing activities each week for them to participate in and they spend time inside and a lot outside, they don't believe in bad weather!!! My daughter gets fed a wide variety of homemade food, puddings and fruit which she seems to love. We have now increased her hours.............. I would definitely recommend this nursery to my friends and family.

A lovely setting, with great facilities that my daughter absolutely loves, especially the slide. She’s more than happy to go to any of the staff in the morning and it’s obvious to see the caring, supportive, encouraging bond the staff have with all the children. My daughter is always fed so well with a varied range of nutritious homemade food, puddings and fruit. I was definitely a bit nervous about leaving my child in Nursery at 7 months, however, the team at Vantage Park made me feel very reassured and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Our son joined Vantage Park a few months ago as a result of his previous nursery being closed for a period of time. My partner visited a number of nurseries in the local area and was not impressed. He was then recommended Vantage Park by a fellow parent from our previous nursery... given that my partner is a little fussy and he was blown away, I was impressed!!

Since our son has attended Vantage Park, his development has been noticeable. He is very happy and we are at ease that he enjoys every moment. The staff have been incredibly supportive and advised us of how we can help further his development. I find their care not only supportive but their knowledge and enthusiasm impressive and like no other we have seen.

I would without any doubt recommend any parent that is looking for nursery care to visit Vantage Park!

Our only complaint....they don’t open weekends ;)

I couldn’t fault Vantage Park in the slightest; I love everything about it. The staff are absolutely amazing and really helped my little girl settle in and deal with my constant ‘checking up’ phone calls! My little girl absolutely loves the nursery and has developed so much with their care and support.

I love that they’re outside so much in all weather. The weekly newsletters are the highlight of my week - seeing pictures and hearing what they’ve been up to! I recommend the nursery to all my mummy friends.

Our son loves Vantage Park, from the first day when we were shown around we were made to feel very welcome and the overall atmosphere was lovely.
We came from another nursery which our son really disliked, he screamed every morning before having to go, we made the staff aware of his previous situation and they could not offer enough support and encouragement, he now asks each evening if he is allowed to go to 'school' tomorrow and gets so excited when he knows he is going. He leaves us happily each morning and always enjoys telling the staff each morning a different story.

The facilities are amazing as well the staff that work here. This nursery will exceed all of your expectations and more. Nothing is ever too much when asked and their weekly themes and colourful classrooms will engage and stimulate each child. The staff seem to really understand each child and appear to have excellent relationships with all of them!

You will not be left disappointed.

From the very beginning, the nursery has been just amazing! The whole team are fantastic and have helped my son settle in so nicely. He previously came from a different nursery where he wasn't happy and they didn't cater to his needs properly and the change in him since coming here has been huge. They are warm and welcoming and make the children feel special and important. The range of activities, games and adventures they have is second to none. I can not recommend them enough and I am so glad we found them when we did.

The staff and facilities at Vantage Park Nursery are incredible, our daughter absolutely loves going to the nursery and loves all of the staff. From day one we have been made to feel incredibly at ease and confident that our daughter will be well cared for and given so many wonderful opportunities while she is there. We couldn't recommend the nursery enough.

We have had a long time in a nursery that made me feel worried and scared for my child's safety and health. She has now been at vantage day park nursery for 2 weeks and I can honestly say what a difference it has made. I feel happy and confident to leave her in the care of the staff, they are all extremely good at what they do, her development in such a short time has been amazing, her behaviour and her moods have completely changed and I now love picking her up to see her so happy. Thank you for making me one happy mummy and for your continued care for my child, I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for an outstanding setting, there is no comparable in my mind.

Such a great nursery with excellent facilities and staff.
I was dreading leaving my little one to go back to work but after only a couple of settling in sessions, I was completely put at ease. The staff are so friendly and have made us feel very comfortable.
My son attends 3 days a week and has a great time.
When I pick him up he is all smiles and I love hearing all about his day from the staff.
Very impressed with this nursery.

My daughter attends Vantage Park 3 full days a week and absolutely loves it. She hasn't been to a nursery setting before and so I was anxious to how she and I would cope! But my daughter and I were made to feel very comfortable from the first session and she has enjoyed every day immensely ever since she started. She waves as I drive up to the building as she knows where she is going! Fantastic place.

We moved to the area in November and looked at transferring our son from his previous nursery. We came to look around before the nursery opened and was blown away by the facilities. He had a couple of settling in sessions which went really well, it was like he had been there for ages. The staff are really friendly and helped both him and us with the settling in period.
The facilities are great, I have never seen such a variety of toys and activities and I like the fact that all of the rooms have similar toys so that everyone gets an opportunity. The outside facilities look great and I am sure our son and the other children will love it when it gets to spring/summer when they can spend more time out there.

My son has recently transferred from another nursery to Vantage Park because it is closer to my work and far more convenient for drop off and pick up.
The staff have made his transition really easy and he really enjoys going to "new nursery".
The facilities are fantastic, he cannot wait until he is old enough to have a go on the real woodwork bench!

My son has attended the nursery since Dec 2016 when it first opened and has settled in great. The nursery has amazing facilities, the staff are all really friendly and interactive with the children and parents. My son has so much creative fun he never wants to leave :-). The level of information I receive is very impressive and something I was not accustomed to with our previous nursery. The nursery is very well presented and clean, also they have their own cook on-site so the food is all freshly prepared. I would highly recommend Vantage Park as an outstanding nursery.

My 2 year old loves going to this nursery. She has settled in really well and we have never had any issues when leaving her even though she only attends one day a week. I am confident she is safe and well looked after and is also learning whiskey she is here.
It's a lovely setting, with a good selection of equipment and activities and lots of room for the children to play. The nursery is clearly run very well. It is a clean and safe environment. The staff are always happy, polite and knowledgeable. Communication is excellent with good detail of feedback on collection and a weekly email detailing the activities for the week ahead and giving you ideas of things to do at home with them.
We were so pleased with all the Christmas crafts she had made and brought home for us.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vantage Park Day Nursery to anyone looking for quality childcare.

My son started at this nursery when it first opened in December 2016. It is so spacious and every piece of equipment is so well built and educational. He has so many different activities and resources available to him every day that he never wants to leave. They offer woodwork lessons in the pre-school room, which is an amazing facility and something I've never seen at any other nursery before. The outdoor areas are fantastic all year round. The experience is very personal and you really get to know the ladies so well. They will listen to any concerns and worries you may have and if you feel you need things catered slightly differently for your child they will ensure they do so. I have been to many nurseries that just didn't feel right, however here you know the ladies love what they do and genuinely have love for children which makes me happy as I know it's a home from home for my son and he will have all the comfort he needs.
Highly recommend this nursery. You won't be disappointed.
