  • 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 4.75 for Kaleidoscope Day Nursery (Gildersome) is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.75

      • 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:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 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.)

      3. (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 3.283 for Kaleidoscope Day Nursery (Gildersome) is calculated as follows:

      1. 2 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 2 Positive Reviews = 0.200

We have used Kaleidoscope, Gildersome for the past 4 and a half years and have found it to be an amazing nursery. Both my girls have been in the nursery since about 10 months old. The eldest was there until she was nearly 4, it set her up so well for the move up onto pre-school and I can see the same happening for my youngest who will soon go to pre-school after just turning 3, but I know she will be fine as the efforts put in by the nursery to help her development have been outstanding. I find all the staff very friendly, hardworking and conscientious. The nursery is always clean, well equipped and the displays are always to a high standard. A great nursery!!
