Reviews

9.5 Buckingham First Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.503)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Buckingham First 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buckingham First Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.99 for Buckingham First Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.99

  • 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 4.513 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buckingham First Nursery is based on 8 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 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.513

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

The first time I visited the nursery, I knew it was the right one for my son. We just love the environment. It took him a week to fit in afterwards he enjoyed being there every single day. All the teachers are well trained, they are knowledgeable, patient and loving. I noticed my son's transformation after attending the nursery, he's becoming very sociable, polite and happy!

The owners are very friendly, kind and helpful. They take care of even small things, making sure both parent and child are happy there. Food is lovely and my son loves it! I would give 10/10 for this nursery!

Jun Man, Director at Buckingham First Nursery responded to this review on 31 Oct 2017:

Thank you for your high praise. We always strive to deliver a special level of childcare. It has been great to see your son grow on his journey here at Buckingham First Nursery!

My child started mid term due to a relocation to London, I saw two previous nurseries in the area and Buckingham First Nursery was the last one for us to see. I instantly knew we had found the right one from the moment I walked through the door!

It is a fabulous nursery, the staff and owners are so professional, friendly, caring and compassionate and most importantly approachable, the children are taught in such creative and innovative ways. From entering the building you are greeted with a warm welcome from all staff, everything there is of a high standard. My child has integrated into his new nursery so well and enjoys going daily, and now is slightly obsessed with the new 'mud kitchen'!

I would recommend this nursery 100%, credit to the owners who have created a beautiful, fun learning environment for young children.

It has been our absolute pleasure in being a part of your child's Early Years journey and able to make your relocation to London just that bit easier!

The best choice I made for my daughter, who continues to thrive at Buckingham First.
The staff are caring, attentive, happy and professional, which I believe has created such a lovely environment.
The building is immaculate, interactive and fun for the children, who are always smiling and enjoying themselves when I see them.
I would highly recommend this nursery, 100 times over, couldn't be happier.
