Reviews

10 Riverview Kindergarden has a Review Score of 10 (9.953)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Riverview Kindergarden is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Riverview Kindergarden in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.953 for Riverview Kindergarden is calculated as follows: ( (183 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.953

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Riverview Kindergarden is based on 16 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

My experience at Riverview has been fantastic, both my boys have enjoyed learning here. I have seen tremendous changes and improvement in both of my boys, in terms of speech, learning, reading, manners ie. behaviour and responsibilities. The teachers look after the kids as if they were their own and this gives me the confidence to leave my kids in the nursery knowing that they are with their second mothers.

I have always found this setting very good. Both my children that have been here have advanced quite quickly in all areas of development and this is thanks to how well trained all of the staff are and the way they individually connect with all of the children in different ways. I also feel that the parents are always well informed on everything they do with the children. I feel outside areas could be a bit bigger but this is obviously not the settings fault.

My little one is always looking forward to coming to nursery, as she has so much fun playing and learning with the facilities and resources available for them. The staff are very nice and caring, providing individual support for their key children and working at seeing the development in the children from their start date. It's a very conducive environment for learning and playing and I would definitely recommend it to any and every parent.
