Dolphin Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.192)
The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Dolphin Day 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Dolphin Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Dolphin Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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:
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.
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.
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 3.192 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Dolphin Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.192
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Laura M (Mother of Child) on Wednesday 29 November 2017. Relates to November 2017.
My son has been attending the Dolphin Day Nursery since he was a year old. He has just recently turned 2.
He settled in extremely well and really enjoys the time he spends there.
He loves the staff and knows them all by name.
I can’t thank them enough for the time and effort they have spent on my son. His speech has really come on over the last few months. He is managing to start putting sentences together. He knows all his colours and is getting there with numbers.
He is also very polite and remembers his manners!
He looks forward to going to nursery and seeing all his friends. A big Thank you to all the staff. I highly recommend the nursery to any parent.
