Quantitative research key findings January 2013 FX Plus Childcare Survey 2012/13 Summary report
Woodlane Nursery General awareness of the nursery at Woodlane is very high, but slightly lower for those based at the Tremough campus and among University of Exeter staff. Of those aware and with children, only 19% ever use it, more so by those based at the Woodlane Campus. Childcare Survey 2012/13 Are you aware or unaware that there is currently a Nursery at Woodlane? / How often (if at all) do you use the Nursery at Woodlane?
Woodlane Nursery How would you rate your overall experience of the Nursery at Woodlane? / What's the primary reason you use the Nursery at Woodlane? / Why do you never use the Nursery at Woodlane? Childcare Survey 2012/13 Those that use the nursery Woodlane all rate it as a positive experience, with high opinions of the reputation, staff and environment. The main reasons for not using the nursery are due to distance from the workplace, namely those at the Tremough Campus. The staff are excellent. They ensure that the children are well cared for and have a good experience. It has an excellent reputation locally, it is very well run and the children are visibly happy there. Because it is the best Nursery in the area. The staff are creative and caring and the environment is homely. There are good nurseries much closer to campus. It takes a long time getting into/out of Falmouth Because we work at the Tremough campus and live in the opposite direction. It would add time to our journey home to go to Woodlane Because it's out of the way for me. I commute from Camborne so it would add extra time/mileage to my journey to go to Falmouth. I live outside Falmouth and it is not practical to drive all the way to Woodlane past Tremough and then round back.
