Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

The maximum Review Score for a Day Nursery is 10, which is made up of Average Rating of Reviews (maximum of 5 points) and Number of Reviews (maximum of 5 points) in the last 24 months:

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews in the last 24 months. 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 4.833 for Clayhall Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.833

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. 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 nursery to friends and family?'

    The 4.282 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clayhall Nursery & Pre-School is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as per below:

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    • i) 4 points are available for the first 10 Positive Reviews in the last 24 months; 3 points for the first Positive Review, and then 0.125 Points for each of the next four Positive Reviews and then 0.1 Points for the next five Positive Reviews. (1st = 3.000, 2nd = 0.125, 3rd = 0.125, 4th = 0.125, 5th = 0.125, 6th = 0.100, 7th = 0.100, 8th = 0.100, 9th = 0.100, 10th = 0.100) 3 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.125 + 0.1 = 3.6

    • ii) 1 point is available for the number of Positive Reviews reaching 20% of the number of registered child places in the last 24 months. If this number is partially reached, then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery registered for a maximum of 50 child places has to reach 10 Positive Reviews to receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews it will receive 0.7 points. 20% of the 44 number of registered child places is 8.8. 6 Positive Reviews ÷ 8.8 = 0.682

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

  • If a Day Nursery does not have a review in the last 24 months. then it will not have a Review Score.

The staff at the nursery are always very helpful and welcoming. My son comes home extremely happy and talks about his day with enthusiasm. The staff are supportive with any requests made and are a huge part in the progress he has made during his time here.

Extremely attentive staff who did their utmost to help our child with settling in at nursery. Exceptional attention to detail which has helped make our child very confident at nursery and at home/in new situations. Our child, as well as gaining confidence has also become very independent which is an
essential skill which the nursery has helped with, in preparation for reception. Overall we'd be very happy to recommend this nursery to other parents without hesitation.

The staff at Clayhall Nursery & Pre-School are all so professional. They dealt with my fear of leaving my first born really well. They helped with potty training and her clinginess. Would definitely recommend them to all parents.

Clayhall Nursery is a wonderful nursery, my two young children both attend and love it. They are constantly bringing home things they have made and the food available is fantastic. We are very happy with the progress the children are making and the nursery itself makes a significant effort to support
the children holistically. Parents are kept informed of upcoming events and the staff are very friendly and approachable. We receive daily information as to what the children have done, what they have eaten etc in writing and in person.

Ever since the new owners have taken over at the start of the year, I’ve been seeing new and exciting improvements every week! And this too, seamlessly with minimal disruption to daily operations. My daughter had just a few days to settle in before I returned to work and I was really worried that this
was never going to be enough time. However, the manager and her entire team were calm, patient, loving and consistent with her throughout these tearful early days making it as smooth as possible for both her and myself! She has now blossomed into a kind, confident and thoughtful little chatterbox who loves nursery. She plays and draws and climbs and cooks and sometimes even relaxes in the office with management! The home cooked vegetarian meals are nutritious and varied. Most importantly of all, the staff are friendly and caring and have really taken the time to get to know exactly what makes my daughter feel settled and happy. Thank you so much.

I can honestly say that the 3 years my granddaughter has been in the nursery have benefitted her immensely.

I have seen her grow socially and physical in leaps and bounds, she knows her manners, and her behaviour is impeccable.
I am always looking forward to hearing what she has learnt “at school”.
And all credit goes to the staff, Every week she can tell me all of the planets in our solar system and what the stars and planets are made up of.
She has learnt about her heart and how it pumps Blood and oxygen around her body. I haven’t seen someone
so enthusiastic to learn as her since my girls were small.

The nursery has certainly helped her and although one should never compare children, I feel that a child that hasn’t attended nursery doesn’t show any of the skills that a child at this nursery does.

The staff should be congratulated for all their hard work.
