Reviews

9.8 Jemima House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.804)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Jemima House Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jemima House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.804 for Jemima House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (136 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.804

  • 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 Jemima House Day Nursery is based on 13 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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 11-month-old daughter has been at Jemima House for 8 weeks now on 2 day weeks, and has settled in brilliantly. It was quite an emotional time for myself putting my daughter into nursery, but the staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and encouraged me to phone regularly if I was worried, which was very reassuring.
Every time we collected our daughter, the key worker, as well as the other staff, made sure they told me how she had got on and explained her day in detail, including any concerns they had.
The Parentzone app has been really enjoyable for both my husband and I, we love to log in during our day to see what our daughter is up to, and the toys and activities she's been involved in.
Our daughter has advanced so much in a short space of time, she's confident, happy and is developing so many social skills. She's kept busy, enjoys a variety of different activities and loves the staff there.

Very clean and well-run nursery, lots of brand new learning equipment and all open plan environment so staff can see the children at all times and help each other quickly when needed.

The staff are very friendly and my daughter is really happy here, every day I collect her I receive a written report on what she has eaten and drank and a list of all the activities she has been involved in.

It is also a quick hand over and picks up the process, all really organised. Overall a modern, friendly well organised nursery.

A lovely new nursery Jemima House Day Nursery on the new Alconbury Weald Development. Bright, clean and very good security. Linked to the new primary school.
The staff are so friendly and welcoming to my grandson. They always have a smile on their faces and each child is like their own. Would highly recommend as the Manager clearly appoints the best staff.

My daughter has settled very well at nursery, the range of activities is fantastic and she is always very animated about her day. Communication has been fabulous, the staff always have time for a chat at the beginning of the day and let us know what she has been up to at the end of the day.We get a regular newsletter which is helpful. I like how they go into the school hall for lunch. The facilities overall are amazing we are lucky to have this on our doorstep.

Having to go back to work when my son was 6 months old was difficult but the staff at Jemima House Day Nursery were so helpful and welcoming if definitely made it easier! My son settled in instantly and absolutely loves spending time there. I never have to worry about what he is doing or whether he is enjoying himself; I know that he is being cared for by experts. I can't thank Jemima House Day Nursery enough for all the things they do. I highly recommend.

My daughter has been going to the nursery since April 2017 - with this being my first child, I was very apprehensive returning to work and leaving my daughter at nursery. All the team at Jemima House have been wonderful, I feel my daughter is very well looked after when in their care. My daughter has settled in very well and I can see that attending the nursery has supported her development.

The staff at Jemima House truly care about the children and enjoy their jobs. My daughter is always greeted with a smile. When I pick her up at the end of the day, they do a wonderful job of summing up the day's activities and my daughter's participation. I also appreciate how the workers gave extra effort to introduce preferred activities while she was adjusting at the start of her time at nursery. My daughter arrives every day excited to enter the building.

As a family, we absolutely love this nursery. Our daughter started when she had just turned 1 and is now 18 months. She was very uneasy about leaving me to begin with but now she adores her two mornings a week and we hope to increase this over the next few months.

Fantastic environment for children to grow in. The staff are all very caring and have great activities planned every day. They also take into account child's interests and try to build on them. Lots of outside play too.

Always feel completely at ease leaving my little boy even in the beginning, now he is excited on nursery days and can't wait to get there.
Food is great too sometimes would not mind lunch there myself.

Having moved to a new area in January we were very anxious about making the right decisions. The team and Jemima House Day Nursery have been amazing. They made my daughter feel welcome and she has made great new friends. I am very pleased with the weekly emails I receive to let me know what is happening and also the feedback I receive when I collect my child from her care worker is in depth and thorough. All in all, a very organised a professional and kind team.

I am so impressed with Jemima House Day Nursery. The nursery staff are warm and welcoming, my children are always happy to go. My eldest (age 4) is making good friends and great progress with his writing and number skills and my youngest (18 months) has so much fun exploring the environment and what he can do through the great activities the nursery provide. The nursery always keeps us up to date with what the children are doing and I always feel welcome too. I spend as much time as I need to drop off or pick them up. It feels like a small family and this is reflected in how the children respond to the adults and treat each other with the attitude of always helping each other when possible. I absolutely recommend this nursery.

My son loves this nursery as do we. The staff are great, friendly and more importantly great with the kids. The nursery is large, clean and has all the toys, books and fun things a child needs and wants. My son has progressed so much in the short time he has been there. Would highly recommend.

This is a fabulous pre-school for my 3 year old. He is in the care of some wonderful carers that are fully qualified. We have seen tremendous growth in our son at this new start of the art pre-school. Staff are great and the primary school lunches are fantastic. We are so pleased that we chose Jemima House or our little one.

This nursery has exceeded mine and my husband's expectations! Our daughter is loving every minute and that is thanks to the wonderful ladies that work here! She can take a while to warm to people and adapt to change, but they have taken on board everything we mentioned from our previous bad experience and have made everything positive! From giving her smaller portions so it's not so daunting to eat to cutting her tea time sandwiches into funny shapes to encourage her to eat them! I have been so impressed with everything, she comes home with something she has made every week and is always so excited to tell us what she has been doing. I feel confident leaving our daughter here and don't worry about if she is okay all day like I did previously. Not only are the ladies that look after our daughter brilliant, so are the owners, they genuinely care for each child. It is, without a doubt, the best nursery in the area.
