The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):
Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The 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. (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 Epsom Downs Primary School and Children's Centre Day Nursery 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?'
Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)
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 3.154 for Epsom Downs Primary School and Children's Centre Day Nursery is calculated as follows:
1 Positive Reviews = 3
0.1 x 1 Positive Reviews = 0.100

Reviewer Connection to Epsom Downs Primary School and Children's Centre Day Nursery
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Natalie F (Mother of Child) on Thursday 10 March 2016. Review relates to March 2016.
My son has been at the nursery since he was 6 months old (he is now 2) and absolutely loves it. The staff are absolutely fantastic, they clearly care about the children and I am assuming they like their jobs as there has been little, if any, change in staff in the last 18 months. It might not be as new as some other nurseries, but it is well maintained, safe and provides all the stimulation children need - as well as plenty of space for them to burn off some energy! There is a small farm on site as well as brilliant outdoor facilities. I also love the fact that the kids are all in the same big area, albeit the smaller children are 'cordoned off' by wooden fences. My son loves playing with the older children and, particularly when he was younger, it enabled him to interact with them from a position of safety. He is just about to move into the 2-3 group and whilst he is ready, his amazing key-workers and I aren't! I really couldn't recommend Epsom Downs nursery enough.
