  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.837 for The Day Nursery Rawreth is calculated as follows: ( (246 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.837

  • 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 The Day Nursery Rawreth is based on 13 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 11 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.

This nursery is amazing, I have 2 children here and the relationship they have with staff is fantastic, I know they are well cared for and happy. I chose the nursery based on the surroundings, being an old school, the garden and playground is huge for children to freely run around.
My eldest is advanced for her age, she picked up on things (like potty/toilet training, writing her name etc) so quickly as they supported her through her learning and growth. The food is great choice and encourages children to try new things. Both my children are very happy here.

Both of my daughters have attended the day nursery over the last 3 years and I have been extremely happy with the care they are given.
The staff are always very welcoming and friendly, my youngest who is still attending loves them all and really enjoys her days.
They communicate all day with food updates and photos showing what they're up to, it's a great touch and a comfort when I'm at work.
The garden space is great for playing outside and the food offered is varied and nutritious.
My youngest will be going to school in September and we will all be very sad to say goodbye.

Fantastic nursery. Communication is brilliant. Says it all that my little boy is sad to go home. The app is updated continually throughout the day so I can see how he is getting on. His development has come on leaps and bounds. Each day he comes with something new that he has learnt.

My child has been going to The Day Nursery since he was 10months old and is now almost 4,
I have seen him blossom into such a lovely, polite character full of energy and as much as I’d like to take the credit myself, a large part of that is thanks to the lovely staff at The Day Nursery who are always happy to see him. He absolutely loves going and for a child to ask to go to nursery on a Saturday and Sunday and be sad when I tell him he can’t as it’s the weekend, well I think that’s better than any review I can give the nursery myself!
Would highly recommend and will be sad when he leaves for big school come September.

My oldest Daugther was here and now my youngest. The fact they have some of the same workers that looked after my oldest 5years ago just shows what amazing place it is.

I feel reassured and satisfied while going to work in London, knowing she is happy and safe. My daughter loves it there! We have no tears in the mornings, all the activities and things they teach them is great.

We are very happy with the care our daughter receives at the day nursery.
The food is good with a wide and varied menu provided for the children. Healthy vegetables and fruit every day, also offering taste such as curry and kale. Our daughter always comes home with pictures she has painted and crafts she has created using different skills and tales of games with ‘football man’ and being out in the garden, playing with sand and her friends. Staff are great, very friendly and welcoming, you are always advised if your child has a small accident and graces their knee or something. Nothing is hidden. Staff are also accommodating for providing medication if required. Outside space is lovely with lots of improvements and additions made throughout last summer.

My granddaughter has been going to The Day Nursery since she was around 7 months old and I think the nursery and staff are fantastic. The nursery has a wonderful outside area with lots of room and is continuing to develop. The food is very nutritious with lots of variety and she is trying new foods every day. She has become a very confident and bright girl and this is because of the amazing staff that look after her. From being in the baby room to now in the pre-school all staff have continued to give her great care and it is a delight to see the relationships she has built with all members of staff. Whenever I go to pick her up she always has a massive smile on her face and never wants to leave. What more could you ask for when someone is looking after something so precious.

Amazing nursery, very friendly staff who make you feel at ease leaving your child in their capable hands. My child loves this nursery and always has so much fun.
The drawings and gifts that she brings home that they have made put a smile on my face.
The daily connect app is excellent and the security system used is high-tech and modern.

We moved our daughter to The Day Nursery in April 2015 from another nursery. Since she has been attending her confidence has grown, she has made friends and is always happy when we collect her. The snacks and meals on offer are excellent. The staff are always professional, caring and friendly. It is excellent value for money - the outdoor space and toys are of excellent quality and are well maintained. It is a lovely environment for the children and the standard of care is high. We have confidence in leaving her which makes going to work a lot less painful!

I can really recommend The Day Nursery in Rawreth. The staff have gone out of their way to make sure my son settled into his new routine of being away form mum! My once shy little boy now can't wait to wave goodbye to me and enjoy his day with his new friends. The staff are all extremely friendly and happy to help with any questions I may have. The use of daily connect is excellent and enables me to be reassured that my son is ok and enjoying his time at nursery.

My daughter started here at 7 months old, and we couldn't be happier. Having worked here 4 years previous to her starting I feel I have extremely good insight to how the children are cared for and we wouldn't have her any where else. The girls make an exceptional effort in making relationships with the parents and children, my daughter loves going to nursery and is progressing at an astonishing rate. She loves the food, activities and the nursery is clean and set out beautifully. My partner and I would recommend The Day Nursery to all our close family and friends.

My husband and I are both teachers and selected a nursery for our son very carefully, considering distance from home/work, facilities and staff. We have been very impressed with the care and guidance our son receives. Daily connect is an excellent investment and very useful for us to have. Our son has a range of creative, stimulating and fun activities everyday and eats a well balanced diet at The Day Nursery. The most important element for us is the staff and the care and kindness they display and this is always exemplary.

My daughter loves it here and we are very happy with the standard of care. A typical nursery in a lovely setting. Plenty of space in all the different rooms. Everyone has really taken the time to get to know our little one and they all make the effort to ensure she has fun.
My only suggestion would be that I would love more info on what she has been doing in the day, maybe a little section added on daily connect - in addition to just seeing Breakfast/snack/lunch/sleep/dinner. This would help the smaller ones who cant talk about their day and help us share the things she enjoys.
