The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Stourbridge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Stourbridge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 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 4.931 for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Stourbridge is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.931

  • 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 4.089 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Stourbridge 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 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.339

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

I have been sending my daughter to Shooting Stars for 2 years. She loves the nursery. Staff turnover has been very low and this has helped her to feel at home and she still loves to see her key worker from the Baby Room. The rooms that the children are in are engaging; in addition, children are taken out on walks to the park etc. There is a varied programme of activities including music bugs, 'PE' and plenty of messy play. There is a rigorous process for pick ups and gaining access to the building is via two locked doors. Parents are involved often, there are normally theme days around holidays such as Holi Festival, Chinese New Year and Easter. I really appreciate the multi cultural approach they take to this. In addition a book is filled in every day detailing food, nappy changes and sleep and what their activities were. Staff listen to your requests about routines. Overall I couldn't recommend Shooting Stars enough. They have given my daughter a brilliant start.

We have always found all of the staff to be great looking after our daughter and have every confidence in them providing her day to day care. Recently they have been brilliant in helping us transition from a bottle to sippy cup and supporting us moving on to solid foods and self-feeding. We have noticed a big change in her developmentally since starting nursery 4 months ago.

My daughter started at Shooting Stars when she was 9 months old, she loves it. All the staff are wonderful with her. The facilities provide her with safe and innovative play indoors and out. Meals are planned in advance giving you chance to review anything you have not yet tried them they were always accommodating with any dietary requests. Both her cousins have attended over the past five years and standards have remained high throughout.

My 2 sons attend the nursery and love being there. Lovely and friendly staff who give great feedback from the day the boys have had. They are always doing new activities to inspire young minds.
Staff have such a lovely bond with the children and I know that if my boys ever needed a cuddle when I'm not there that they would happily go to their key workers.
Great food menus and we know the children are eating healthy meals and snacks through the day.

My three sons have each attended shooting stars and my little one still does. This nursery is absolutely fantastic. I have nothing but praise for the wonderful caring staff who work there. My boy has such fun every day he attends and we receive daily feedback regarding the activities which have been offered. The staff are friendly and warm and the manager and deputy are both great. Thank you for all your hard work. This is an excellent nursery.

Both my girls have attended Shooting Stars in Stourbridge so I have had direct contact with the nursery now for nearly 6 years. It is a lovely setting that I would highly recommend to local parents. They provide a warm, caring environment for the children in their care whilst giving them numerous varied learning opportunities through play. They work on a positive reinforcement and modelling good behaviour which is a must for me when looking for a setting for my children. The facilities and equipment available to the children are lovely. The staff are informative and welcoming and you can see they really care for the children throughout the nursery. I highly recommend Shooting Stars as somewhere you can leave your children and know they are in safe hands and the food is yummy :-)
