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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)
The Quality Score (average rating) of 5 for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. 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 care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.
0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)
(Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.
The Quantity Score of 3.156 for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) is calculated as follows:
1 Positive Reviews = 3

How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road)?
Reviewer Connection to The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road)
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Helen C (Mother of Child) on Thursday 24 November 2016. Review relates to November 2016.
Our daughter has attended Eveline for approx. 14months and she loves it. Ever since she started we have been impressed with the care she has been given by all the staff, their attitude towards safety, learning and fun. The manager, runs a tight ship and whilst being friendly and caring, is fair and professional, which is also reflected in her staff, who are a wonderful group of individuals.
When we drop our daughter off in the morning, she runs in ready for hugs with the staff and to see her little friends. At the end of the day we receive a daily report with everything with what she has done that day, the activities she has enjoyed the most, the interaction she has with her friends, the valuable little snip bits of the conversations and interactions she has with her friends, and the food she has eaten and how much and how much she has slept - important to us and truly reflects the attention the nurses give them.
A wonderful nursery.
