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 4.8 for The Old Station Nursery, Bampton is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.8

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Old Station Nursery, Bampton is based on 5 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.625

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

We have been very impressed with the nursery. Our daughter has settled perfectly supported by wonderful staff with a nurturing approach. The nursery itself is well resoursed and feels bright and welcoming. The range of activities are well planned with lots of opportunities for the children to explore the community around them. We feel very fortunate to have found it!

My children have settled in very well at The Old Station Nursery and my son especially becomes very excited when he realises it's a nursery day! They have been attending since the nursery first opened and are very fond of the staff that work there (as are my husband and me).
They frequently bring home arts and crafts that they have made during the day and these are lovely to see. My children love to be outdoors and they have access to the garden every session. I think it is safe to say that my husband, myself and our children would definitely recommend The Old Station Nursery!

We are new to the nursery but know from experience of another nursery within the group, that they are truly fantastic! So far we have been welcomed into the lovely facilities at Bampton. No request has gone ignored, and nothing is too much trouble. Very reassuring to a working mum.

Having been let down by our previous nursery (graded inadequate by Ofsted), The Old Station Nursery and staff were really approachable in finding our child a nursery place. They are extremely welcoming and although it was an upsetting time for our daughter starting somewhere new, they were great in helping her settle and now she doesn’t even give us a backwards glance when we leave. They do a variety of activities to engage the children and there is always a smile on our daughters face when picking her up.

My daughter absolutely loves going to this nursery. We don't even get through the front door before she's saying "bye mummy" and waving for me to go. She has great fun and the staff are AMAZING and give her great care. My niece is also starting in May because of my recommendations. It's like a home from home and I know she will have a great day.
