Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Young and Smart Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Young and Smart Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.259 for Young and Smart Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (95 Goods x 4) + (22 Satisfactorys x 3) + (6 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 212 Ratings = 4.259

  • 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 Young and Smart Nursery is based on 17 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

I have got my twin children in Young and Smart Nursery for almost two years now. They have been very happy attending this particular nursery and enjoying every activity taking place in the setting.
The staff are so caring that my children never want to miss nursery. They have learnt a lot of things from the staff such as colours, numbers and letters. I would recommend this nursery.

My daughter has loved it here and I am very happy that she got a place at Young and Smart Nursery. Her speech, number skills, writing skills and social interactions have all improved at a very good rate and she is doing well here.
The best thing that stands out for me is that the staff genuinely look happy to be working with the children and treat them like their own. A very home from home atmosphere. All staff are friendly and helpful.

My daughter enjoys learning with her friends and teachers. My daughter has lots of friends since starting Young and Smart. She has learnt a lot. She is much brighter, smarter, she talks more clearly, says her words better. Young and Smart is very professional, great with staff that care and love the children as their own child and the staff and management make learning fun for the kids.
Even myself as a parent, I am very happy. What a caring, supporting and lovely nursery. The best.

My son has been at Young and Smart Nursery for over two years and son loves it here. The staff are well documented about their roles and it has been a joy to see my son's improvement on day to day activities.
The staff are a great example for other nurseries to follow and move over. The facilities are top of the class, including the catering service that provides the food. I would highly recommend this nursery school.

I like that every day they tell me how my daughter's day has been. I like that they have Spanish classes once a week and the singing class.
The staff are very friendly. I'm happy because my daughter is happy to come. But I didn't like it when the nursery closed because of the snowfall and they didn't tell me in time.

I like because it is very convenient for me and my wife. They are not too bad. Can be much better with more equipment to teach the children and maybe with more teachers as well.

My son has been at Young and Smart Nursery for a year. Settling him was incredibly smooth. We had a meeting beforehand so they knew my son's needs. The staff are very friendly and caring. My son has a great bond with his key worker. She is open to talk to me anytime, we have built up a very good relationship. We work as a team on my son's needs and wellbeing. The manager is also very helpful and understanding. My son loves his lunch (the food) at nursery. They have got their own cook and on-site kitchen and provide food at a very high standard. The nursery is very clean which is an important factor.
My son is always looking forward to the music and Spanish classes. Overall he has developed a lot. They are my son's second family. I am grateful for their work.
