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 4.886 for Naturally Learning Lemon Street is calculated as follows: ( (149 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.886

  • 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 Naturally Learning Lemon Street 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 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.

Our son has attended Naturally Learning Lemon Street since it opened and he has really flourished thanks to them. He started with hardly any vocabulary and now he talks non-stop! His relations with staff has always been excellent, he speaks highly of them all and as do we, as his parents. We highly recommend this nursery to everybody we know.

Naturally Learning have two nurseries in Truro and we have visited both. I liked Lemon Street as it is in a lovely big house which feels homely rather than anything else. There are rooms upstairs for the older children and rooms upstairs for the children up to 3 years old. They have a big kitchen and a chef and a lovely big back garden with activities, trees and a wendy house.
My son is currently upstairs and has been attending since he was 9 months old. He settled very quickly and a key worker was chosen after it was decided who he had the closest bond with. He is very much in love with his key worker as are we (his parents) as she really genuinely cares about our son. All members of staff seem to know his name even if they don't work directly with him and show a genuine interest in what he is doing. In terms of physical care, they look after him well and make sure that he is presentable and clean after messy activities or food. Food is varied and of a high quality. I am happy.

Since my toddler started going, I've been very impressed by how affectionate and caring the toddler room staff are with him. He now happily waves me 'bye' in the mornings and I can see in the app each day what he's eating and when his nap times are. They do lots of activities like baking and sensory play as well as singing and playing in the huge back garden.

Since my son started nursery here in November he has had the best of times. He’s learning something new always and always comes away happy and telling me about his day. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and connect with each child so well. I wouldn’t send him anywhere else!

I have two granddaughters attending Naturally Learning Lemon Street and I have been extremely impressed by all aspects of the provision:
The beautifully designed physical environment, both indoors and outdoors; The very high standard of care and learning provision ; the detailed session plans, activities and enticing materials/equipment set out to welcome and stimulate interactions; the exemplary daily online communications, including photographs and videos which enable me to feel part of my granddaughter’s experiences; the healthy eating choices....I could continue. Suffice it to say that we are delighted that our granddaughters have the good fortune to attend such excellent provision and thank all the staff for their care, kindness and skills.

Such a brilliant team and a beautiful nursery, I have already recommended to a number of friends. The staff are so good at keeping us updated on what our son has been up to when we pick him up at the end of the day and it's also wonderful to have updates and photos via their nursery app. I feel very lucky and happy that my son has the chance to attend nursery here.

I can't put into words how happy we are with Naturally Learning Lemon Street.
The nursery itself is beautiful - the rooms are all cosy, clean, and freshly decorated. The toys and resources are fantastic for engaging the children and progressing their learning. The grounds are lovely - our daughter spends most of her days outside, exploring the natural world (in any weather, appropriately dressed)
The staff are just wonderful - you can tell they love what they do... The care and attention our daughter receives means that we are happy and confident that she is in the best hands when not in our care. There is a wide range of activities on offer for the children on a daily basis, and you can see that real care and attention goes into the planning.
The food always looks (and smells) amazing, freshly cooked on site.
All in all, we couldn't be happier. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to future prospective parents.

I couldn't think of a more inspiring nursery to send my son than that of Naturally Learning Lemon Street. From the warm greeting, as you enter to the genuine affection shown to my child by every member of staff, it really does feel like a home from home. We are kept fully informed of every aspect of his day in real time via an app, have detailed personal feedback daily and photos sent to us of the activities he is doing throughout the day. The open-ended learning opportunities he's given are brilliant and even the youngest babies have access to the beautiful garden. I can't praise them enough.

The nursery has a very nice environment. Staff are always very welcome and professional in terms of activities, there is something new, to explore, to make them use their imagination, to learn to play. Is completely different to other nurseries. Wooden toys, lots lots of outdoors activities, and connection with nature. Every week is a different thematic. They got an app where you can follow the daily activities and see the pictures.
Also very supportive staff in terms of special needs children, that is something that as a parent makes me feel secure. But the most important is to see my kids growing up happily.
