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 4.667 for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Chalfont is calculated as follows: ( (16 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 3.395 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hungry Caterpillar Day Nursery - Chalfont is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.145

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

Lovely nursery! Hungry Caterpillars is a very warm and nurturing environment and the carers really engage with the children. My Daughter absolutely loves it there, no tears at drop off and a happy smiley face at collection. When asked if she’s had a good day she always says yes and tells you a song she has been learning or shows you colours, numbers or days of the week. The other day she spoke in French!

The venue itself is clean and tidy and the resources are brilliant. The staff in toddler room are second to none and have created a really special bond with my little one. It’s safe to say that when watching them they seem to have this with all the children in their care. I look forward to my son starting there very soon!
