Reviews

7.1 Bessborough Community Nursery has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.121)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bessborough Community Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 8 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 4.729 for Bessborough Community Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 2.392 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bessborough Community Nursery is based on 8 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.784 , then divided by 2 = 0.392

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

Bessborough Nursery is a wonderful welcoming nursery with friendly staff. My daughter was extremely anxious to start nursery and settling in was an emotional challenge for us both. Our keyworker was extremely supportive and caring and has helped my daughter settle into nursery amazingly. She now loves to go to nursery!

All staff are very friendly and attentive to the children. I am very thankful to them for what they do as all children are different and require a different approach. The nursery is always clean and the standard of food that they get is excellent.

Our son is always very happy to go to nursery in the morning and walks in with a smile after a kiss and cuddle. The carers make him feel at home, the environment - and especially the large garden - is very welcoming, the lunches always get a thumbs up and a colourful description when we collect him, etc.

The staff at Bessborough are amazing. My daughter does not like being away from me, but she runs into nursery each morning so excited to be there. The staff are always smiley and friendly and are teaching her so many things every day.
I also love how affectionate they are with the children. She took a long time to settle at first and they were so calm and reassuring with her, giving her lots of cuddles and attention.
I really like how well they communicate, with news letters, reviews etc, and even just the photos of the children enjoying activities. They are also always available to discuss any concerns or worries.

The nursery itself is well equipped, homely, light and airy and pleasantly chaotic. I especially love the outside space and how it opens right onto the rooms. This is something I didn't find in any other nursery I looked at and is so nice as they can go out in all weather, and I love picking her up in the summer and finding everyone still hanging out in the fresh air.

Wonderful nursery: I would highly recommend it. Great staff - including a lovely on-site chef - and supportive, available management. They also have a lovely outside space for the children to play and run, including a dedicated outside area for babies under 2.

Very friendly and supportive staff for parents and children. Thorough information given at pick ups and ideas on how to continue to support your child's development shared. Great values shared in regard to table manners and communal dining to learn feeding skills. Very nutritious meals provided and flexibility shown in individual child needs ie, weaning onto cows milk
