  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.964 for Willaston Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 3.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Willaston Pre-School is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.417

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

8.6 Willaston Pre-School has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.631)

Lovely intimate and caring environment for my little boy. Already signed my little girl up for when she's old enough.

Recommend so highly! My 2.5 year old was struggling in nursery and we were looking for other options, as soon as we looked round I knew it was perfect. There is lots of space so the children are not on top of each other, a big outside space and they are outside every day. There is lots of different toys, games and equipment and it is such a lovely space.
Every day there are different activities set up, sensory play, painting and so many different activities. I love that there is a big focus on preparation for school, not just the academic side but the soft skills and independence e.g. at lunchtime.
The staff are fantastic, so caring and passionate about the children and they are consistent which means they really get to know the children. My little girl settled in so well and has gone from crying hysterically at her nursey drop off, to running in to pre-school and having to catch her to say bye. She gets so excited and I thank my lucky stars I found this perfect place.

We are absolutely delighted with Willaston Pre-School. Our daughter loves attending and has thrived since starting in September 2016. The staff are caring and are fantastic at their job. The varied activities and endless outdoor play ensure an interesting and action packed day. I highly recommend the setting and would encourage anyone considering a preschool for their child to have a look around. As it operates as a not for profit organisation, it is extremely good value for money.

Willaston Pre-school has a friendly, nurturing and supportive environment for both the children and their carers.
The staff are all very approachable and have lots of experience. They always have time to answer my queries and time to cuddle my little boy when he is sad. They encourage the children to use their imaginations and be themselves and unbeknown to the children - they are learning phonics, numbers and many other skills that they can develop further in school.
We love Willaston Pre-school.

Wonderful nurturing pre-school (Outstanding in all areas from Ofsted) which is a great half-way house between home and primary school. My 3 sons (and now daughter!) have all loved their time there. Imaginative use of the facilities means that children learn without even realising it i.e. whilst having fun and playing. The greatest asset is the staff who have all been there for ages, know just how to care for each child as an individual, and are all professionals. Complete absence of ipads too!

What my little boy says every day, is reason enough for me to recommend Willaston Preschool to any parent - everyday he asks me 'Are we going to preschool today' and 'am I staying for lunch' then a jump for joy when the answer is yes. That aside, the staff are caring and nurturing and have a perfect balance between learning and play. The facilities are excellent and there are always plenty, also there is a great variety of toys and books available. I also very much like that my little boy's learning log is a physical one that parents can take home and flick through, rather than yet another thing to look through online.
