The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Woodley Gardens Day Nursery 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodley Gardens Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.729 for Woodley Gardens Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodley Gardens Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

A very relaxed and fun place for my little boy to socialise and learn new things. The staff are brilliant at dealing with the challenges of separation and have lots of wonderful activities and ideas to keep the kids engaged.

My son joined Woodley Gardens Nursery in March 2017. He is a child with special needs. The nursery have done the very best they can to keep him happy. He loves his nursery now. They have always shown interest in knowing more about my son's needs and communicate with his therapists to give him the best. I can't thank the nursery enough for all the support and care they are providing for my son. Especially thanks a lot the manager. I hope the support and care continues.

My son has been going to the Woodley Gardens day nursery since he was 14 weeks old. He's loved it from his first session. The staff treat him as an individual and adapt to his needs and preferences. They have always taken a real interest in finding the things he likes and appear to ensure his development is priority.

He is always so happy when I drop him off and has a great bond with his regular carers.

Recently he has started messy play with the older children which he loves! The nursery send me photos of him experiencing new types of play and he always looks so happy. I truly feel my son's development has excelled since he started nursery and I'm so thankful for their role in my son's care.
