Reviews

7.1 Sunray Day Care Nursery has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.080)

The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for Sunray Day Care Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunray Day Care Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.958 for Sunray Day Care Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (69 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 2.122 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunray Day Care Nursery is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 24.6 positive Reviews (123 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 24.6 Target = 0.244 , then divided by 2 = 0.122

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

I really couldn't fault Sunray at all. My son was only 5 months when he started in the baby room and like any new mum, I was apprehensive about him starting at such a young age, but I really had nothing to worry about!
All the staff are so helpful and friendly and they are really fab with my son! My son loves nursery and all the fun activities the girls do with him. Couldn't recommend this nursery enough!

Our son has been going to this nursery since he was 6 months old and he has grown into a very confident and happy toddler. The staff are lovely and make a real effort to know each individual child and their needs. When I drop him off in the morning his huge smile says it all and when I pick him up at night he is having so much fun he doesn't want to leave.

We are delighted with the quality of care provided by Sunray. Our child settled in quickly and happily thanks to the professional, attentive and caring staff members responsible for her during her time at nursery. We are very confident that all her needs are being met as she develops through a wide range of fun activities in a safe and clean environment with access to open countryside.

My 5 year old son went to Sunray when he was one, I have always been extremely pleased with the high standards at Sunray so when it was time for my daughter to start nursery I immediately thought of Sunray. My daughter is totally content and happy to be at Sunray which totally puts me at ease to leave her there.
