Reviews

8.3 Magic Nursery Whetstone has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.262)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Magic Nursery Whetstone is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Magic Nursery Whetstone in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.833 for Magic Nursery Whetstone is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.429 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Magic Nursery Whetstone is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.179

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

My son had a fabulous two plus years at Magic Nursery in Whetstone. He bounced in happily every day, welcomed by warm, caring staff - he still tells me now that his best friends are three members of staff at the nursery!

The staff always communicated well with me and I felt happy and secure leaving my son in their care while I was at work.

Thank you for helping develop my son into the happy, confident child he is now.

We had a difficult time coping while our daughter was in nursery. All the staff and management at Magic Whetstone were very kind and helpful supporting us. I can never be thankful enough for the time they gave us.
