Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.885 for Snowflakes Day Nursery & Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 4.479 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Snowflakes Day Nursery & Montessori is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.479

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

Since putting our son into Snowflakes from the age of 1, he has become so much more independent. He has also learnt so many things like playing with others, being able to share things, language skills have developed so quickly.
The staff are wonderful and very experienced, so leaving our son with Snowflakes has been made easy. Sometimes I come to collect my son and he doesn't want to go home as he is playing here at Snowflakes.
We have another son who will be starting nursery next year, so no doubt he will be joining his brother here at Snowflakes.

We are so delighted that our daughter attends Snowflakes Nursery! The learning environment, staff and facilities are top-notch and if it wasn't for the nursery, our 3-year-old's progress wouldn't be what it is. The nursery has helped our daughter grow in so many ways and we are really grateful to the staff and management.

I'm very pleased with Snowflakes Nursery and the care they provide to my oldest son, who is now in reception year. He had really good time and learnt a lot. Recently my 1-year-old daughter started nursery too and I have to say that I am very happy with the nursery staff as they fully understand her needs and also helping with her development.

Snowflakes Day Nursery & Montessori is a great place for children. My daughter joined it when she was just one year old and she spent 3 years there which were wonderful and full of fun, learning, care and love. I really appreciate all the staff members are hardworking and I want to say a big thank you. From being a baby, my daughter has turned into a lovely, warm and kind girl. I am sure that it is thanks to you all her first days at school won't be stressful but just a pleasure.

My son joined Snowflakes Nursery when he was nine months. As a parent, I wanted a nursery that would be caring, professional and that provided a safe environment for my son to learn, develop social skills and reach all the necessary milestones from baby to toddler/pre-school.
Snowflakes Nursery was all of the above and much more. Words cannot fully describe my gratitude for the nursery management, teachers and other valuable staff members.
My son left the nursery when he was nearly 4 years old, only because we were moving house to another area. I can honestly say that they will always have a special place in our hearts.
I would like to take to take this opportunity to thank Snowflakes Nursery for all their fantastic work and dedication.

I am so pleased with the nursery, the staff and the standards maintained. My boys have/are attending the nursery and it is so good to see how well they have developed academically and socially. My eldest son attended the nursery and is currently in year 1 and all the hard work that staff has put in to ensure he succeeds outside of the nursery is evident. He is doing so well at school. My younger son currently attends the nursery and is equally doing well. The staff have supported him to ensure clarity with his speech and prepare him for reception next year. I am so happy and could not have asked for any other nursery. Thank you Snowflakes.

We feel welcome every time we come into nursery. Staff are very professional, always smiley and happy to inform me how was my child's day at nursery. There are a lot of activities for kids. It is amazing how big my daughter has progressed within the last few weeks. She has become more independent.
The most important thing for me is that I can see that my child is very happy at nursery, and even if she has a bad day or is a little bit sad, the nursery staff are very generous with hugs and are always able to comfort my little 17 month old girl.

My daughter was blessed to be surrounded by lovely staff and well behaved children. The dedication from the staff towards her growth and development is evident in her character and attitude towards her family and friends. As she attended Snowflakes Nursery, I have been privileged to watch her grow as a person with so much confidence. My daughter has been empowered in so many ways and has definitely received a fantastic foundation towards the start of her life. The staff at Snowflakes have been very supportive also to my family. I am sure she will miss everyone come September. I am also happy to enrol my son (her little brother) in the near future.

This nursery is fantastic, my daughters academic knowledge is leaps and bounds ahead of other children her age. She knows the days of the week, how to spell and write her name, the months of the year, she can count to 50 and she has only just turned 3 years of age. The teachers are great and give you an update of what your child has eaten and what their day consisted of. I would highly recommend this nursery.

I am very pleased with the nursery my son attends, which he has been registered with since the age of 1 1/2 years old. The staff are extremely accommodating and management are always available to share and listen to my views or feedback. I would definitely recommend my child's nursery to other parents. He has grown up so much and evolved in an warm, caring and safe environment. The staff are so committed to his care and development. The nursery go out of their way to ensure that the needs of the children are met, from academically achieving to lovely meals and learning in a fun loving manner. Thank you to all the staff and management, I couldn't have picked a better setting for my son to be raised in.

I'm absolutely happy with the nursery. My son has been going there for past year and half. I feel that they look after him very carefully just like me. I would never choose a different nursery and I would really recommend it to everyone. They really care about the children.

My son has been attending Snowflakes nursery for three years. I am extremely happy with the care he was given. His wellbeing was always most important for the staff. He started the nursery when he was only under two years old which was hard both for him and for me. The members of staff were understanding and helpful when my son was going through settling in period. He did enjoy all the activities and book work he did in the nursery. He learned a lot and now in school is well above the average.
