Overview

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for HappyWoods Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for HappyWoods Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.934 for HappyWoods Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (157 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.934

  • 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 HappyWoods Nursery is based on 14 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 7.6 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.

9.9 HappyWoods Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.934)

My boy/girl twins have been at HappyWoods since July 2017. They have developed so much since transitioning from a nanny to nursery. They are 31 months. The nursery is really supportive and is so passionate about what they do.

We live locally which enables us to walk or drive to the nursery. Drop-offs are easy as you can park outside. All staff are very approachable and keen to let you know on pick up how their day was, what they have eaten, nap times and activities completed during the day.

We went to view a number of nurseries and felt the connection with HappyWoods as they were not part of a bigger chain and run by the owners. There is a real connection from the manager of wanting the nursery to succeed and have happy children and staff.

I highly recommend this nursery and our only wish would be for the opening hours to be 7.30 am to 6.30 pm to accommodate our work schedules.

HappyWoods is an excellent nursery. Our daughter is thriving there! Two ladies are conscientious and caring managers. I have absolute faith in their systems and care. They are very warm and strive to ensure that children are nurtured and stimulated without fail. It is always very clean, the food is home cooked and tasty - our daughter eats much better at HappyWoods than she does at home. It is a safe environment and I feel confident about her wellbeing and security. It is more like a second family for her - that makes us feel good about dropping her off in the morning!

Excellent staff in HappyWoods Nursery.

My 2-year-old boy is very sensitive, I was worried about when him going to nursery but with their excellent care my little boy has settled so well. His little face showed me he likes the staff there and he is happy and very much enjoying his time in HappyWoods.

My daughter started at HappyWoods mid-August on a full-time basis, she was very clingy to me and very unsure of new people. Within a couple of weeks, she was like a different person.

She can't wait to go in the mornings and absolutely adores the staff. They are all very friendly and welcoming, they give lots of feedback about her day. Since being at HappyWoods, my 2-year-old has thrived, she is comfortable and her speech has come on so well.

Since joining HappyWoods Nursery, my son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident with other children as well as being more open to learning new skills. The teachers are very welcoming and I love the variety of different things they have to offer such as cooking classes, growing your own plants as well as developing children to learn a second language (Spanish). My son is very fond of the staff here and enjoys coming to nursery. I am very pleased with the layout and the different varieties of learning to develop children's key skills. Highly recommend.
