Reviews

9.7 Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.729)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.979 for Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School

Excellent nursery with Montessori influences, regularly changing activities to provide an exciting and stimulating environment that the children look forward to each day, plenty of outdoor space with extensive grounds, onsite dining facilities (which must be good to please the older school children too!)

The kindergarten staff team is small, kind and caring so the children really do have the same key person every single day.

My son has been going to this Skippers Hill for over a year now. He is developing into an amazing little person and Skippers have only ever aided in this. They look at each child individually, their care and affection towards the children would put any nervous people at ease. The resources they have are incredible and my little one loves having so much space and is particularly fond of the mud kitchen. I will and do recommend Skippers Hill to all my friends looking for somewhere for their children.

I couldn't wish for a better environment for my daughter to be in whilst she is in kindergarten. The staff are all superb with the children, so kind, caring, fun but also consistent with the development of good manners and the encouragement they give the children to grow as individuals is wonderful.
My daughter is a complete chatterbox after a session at Kindergarten, it's a joy to hear of all her wonderful adventures and creations- I wish I was three again!
