9.3 Country Mice Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.297)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Country Mice Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Country Mice Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 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 4.638 for Country Mice Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.638

  • 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 4.659 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Country Mice 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 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0.909

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

Country Mice is a small, friendly nursery setting. The staff are friendly and welcoming to children and staff and are always available to chat before and after nursery. My daughter loves going and gets on well with all the staff and children. They do lots of outdoor activities and have recently had a trip to a nearby farm.
A small setting so staff know all the children well. A huge advantage that they take children as young as 2 and offer before and after school club.

My children are happy here - when I come to pick them up, I can hear them laughing way before I see their smiling faces. I took my children out of one nursery and chose to put them in the care of Country Mice, I have never regretted that choice. I feel a huge gratitude to all the fabulous staff who make it what is, and for giving my children such a wonderful pre-school experience.

I love Country Mice. The outdoor space is great and the kids are really happy and stimulated. My son has been at Country Mice since he was 2 and he is starting school in September. He can already read and spell! I am sure this has a lot to do with the attention he gets, particularly from his keyworker who is brilliant. The staff are great at nurturing my son, whilst setting clear boundaries that have helped so much with his naughty antics! We will really miss coming to Country mice. I would heartily recommend it to everyone!

Excellent environment for our little girl to develop and grow in. The nursery encourage good behaviour, learning and most importantly and huge sense of fun with life. Our daughter has developed strong writing skills and a very good understanding of basic mathematics which is great at a young age.

The staff are wonderful and have gone over and above when supporting us during gourmet daughters time at the nursery. They deserve all the credit that is given to them.
