Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Yellow Penguin 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Yellow Penguin Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.836 for Yellow Penguin Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (240 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 286 Ratings = 4.836

  • 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 Yellow Penguin Nursery is based on 24 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 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

Yellow Penguin has given me a huge peace of mind when it comes to my child care needs. My child has come out of her shell since attending the nursery thanks to the staff and management team. Excellent service. 10/10.

My son and myself both love this nursery. The staff are amazing with the children and parents. Love that the app provided by the nursery allows me to stay updated on my son’s activities throughout the day. The nursery is always spotless, the food menu is amazing.
I was worried when my son first started but he has adapted so well. I can’t thank the nursery enough.

I deliberately waited a few months before writing a review, just to make sure I was happy with the service provided. And I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied and I highly recommend this nursery.
I can not fault the cleanliness of the place (which was a big criterion for me), the staff is friendly and really professional. They helped my child improve her speech a lot, especially in English (as we speak other languages to her at home).
I love the fact that they have an app, it is a great way of communication and they keep you updated on everything.
And the most important thing is that my daughter is happy and had made lots of friends.
In a nutshell, it is a great nursery and I can not fault it so far.

I highly recommend this nursery because they have been awesome with my daughter from day one and they still are.

Just a quick example, returning from a 2-week holiday, my daughter was more nervous than ever but some nice words and a big hug from the supervisor were spot on.

Many thanks!

My daughter started nursery in September 2017 and she loves it. She was upset a few times but it was very quickly taken care of. She sings songs that she has learnt at nursery and can't wait to go to see kids and staff. It is a new nursery so it is very clean. I highly recommend it. Love it!! All the staff are absolutely amazing.

My kid joined the nursery when he was two years and three months and is in the nursery for about four months now. He learned to do some of his own activities, learned to say pleasing words, mingle with other kids. He certainly is in a much better place now. Thanks to the nursery for shaping him.

My child has come on so much in their self-confidence, speech and learning since being at the nursery. They are so happy and talk about the staff all the time. It gives me great peace of mind when I’m at work when I get updates on the family app. Brilliant nursery. Can’t fault it.

We love the Yellow Penguin Nursery. It is so lovely there, amazing atmosphere. Good learning for our baby daughter. Even when she is not going to nursery, she has started to dress herself, going downstairs and waiting by the door to go to nursery. When I'm at work I can see on my app everything that she is doing in nursery, what she is eating, how much and when she is is going to sleep. I'm so so happy she is in Yellow Penguin. Amazing staff, very polite.

This is my son's first nursery, so I was really anxious before he started as he is really shy but so far he has settled in perfectly. The staff are very friendly, there are a lot of toys and activities, the rooms are kept clean and there is a variety of healthy food.

Only the outdoor space is a bit limited in my opinion as my son loves being outside, but as long as they all go to the parks or town, I am happy.

I was really anxious about going back to work and putting my LO into a nursery. The nursery manager made me feel welcomed as soon as I stepped into the nursery. When I left, I was less nervous about leaving my child at nursery. The nursery was refreshing, bright and age appropriate. All the staff are inclusive, they all welcomed my LO even though we had not started yet. Any concerns I had were reassured and then I was told about the App which allowed me to see what my child was doing each day ie naps, food, nappy changes and updates on their learning. Overall my son has been there nearly a month and I can see he has settled in very well. This nursery is a home from home.

A lovely, well designed, immaculate purpose build nursery. light, bright and airy. Ever time I drop off/ collect my daughter the temperature of the building is perfect, never any odour smells or dirty. My daughter's nappy is changed regularly, her bottom has never been red or sore. It has taken my daughter some time to settle into the nursery environment, but the nursery staff have always been patient, comforting and loving. All the staff are professional, not harsh in there manner, caring and kind towards my daughter. The meals are all nutritional balanced, freshly made and meet my daughter's dietary needs, I am sure my daughter has been eating well as she has not lost any weight. My daughter's confidence, her interaction/ socialisation with other children/adults have developed wonderfully. This nursery is very good value for money. Truthfully this nursery is outstanding, I have recommended this lovely nursery to a number of friends and colleagues and will continue.

My daughter started at Yellow Penguin Nursery at the end of July after having to leave her previous nursery because they could not meet her needs. Since starting, she has settled really well. The staff at Yellow Penguin have pin pointed why my daughter takes on particular behaviours which have now stopped with their amazing work. I can't fault it. Management and the rest of the staff are amazing, always updating me on the progress of the nursery, as it is a new nursery. They regularly inform me of my daughter's progress since starting the nursery. I am very happy with her progress and cannot thank them enough. The nursery is always clean and tidy with plenty of different activities for the children. If your child is like mine and needs to be entertained 24/7 it is an excellent nursery, highly recommended.

I really like the nursery because it is very clean and the staff are very friendly. My son loves the nursery. He is more active, learning so much and his speech is now fab. As he is a fussy eater, he has started eating food from the menu. He has made friends and loves sharing and caring - this is shown in his behaviour. Keep doing what you are doing.
