7.1 St Nicholas Nursery has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.125)

The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for St Nicholas Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Nicholas Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 for St Nicholas Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Nicholas Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

Reviewer Connection to St Nicholas Nursery

  • Father of Child

My daughter started St Nicholas nursery this September, we as parents are really pleased with the learning she is receiving. She enjoys the extracurricular activities like cooking, theatre bugs, French and gardening. She comes home smiling and always talks about the nursery. She has started to write the letters of her name as well, which really impressed me. She has developed a good relationship with her key worker and other practitioners.
The environment of the nursery is warm and welcoming, I am happy about the management, the way things are well organised and the new app - Tapestry giving an opportunity for us to share our feedback. Overall, I would like to say that the nursery is outstanding and I am very pleased with the staff feedback I receive every day and my child's progress.

Anjie Shah, Nursery Manager at St Nicholas Nursery responded to this review on 21 Nov 2017:

Dear Mr.P, we are happy to hear that you are pleased with your child at St.Nicholas and we look forward to receiving your continued support and please do feel free to recommend us to your friends and families.

My two-year-old daughter went to this nursery for around six months. Back in February 2017, we decided to take her out of this nursery as we had another arrangement for child care. Since then we have been chasing the nursery for a refund of the deposit. Despite countless emails and telephone calls, the nursery management team is simply disregarding this issue. The nursery policy clearly stipulates that money paid as a deposit will be refunded but somehow all our follow-ups seem to have been ignored. Nine months on I am still waiting for my refund of my deposit!
