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 5 for Rotherly, The Westgate's Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 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:

    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 3.091 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rotherly, The Westgate's Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.091

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

Reviewer Connection to Rotherly, The Westgate's Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

I feel extremely lucky to have my daughter attending Rotherly. From the moment she started, she talked about the staff as her 'friends' and having moved her from a nursery where the staff changed weekly, staff retention was important to my husband and I. The team at Rotherly are like family, they know all of us and take a wider interest than simply each day our daughter spends at nursery.

The online journal is wonderful. We can see the fun had and milestones reached in nursery and we can update the staff on achievements and milestones outside of nursery.
The purpose-built facilities, beautiful large garden and excellent location are a rare commodity in a city where nursery places are in such high demand and it is safe to say my daughter is continuously stimulated and proudly presents her creations when I collect her. Quite simply, she has thrived here. Like all good establishments, there is a waiting list. Rotherly is an early years decision I am very pleased I made.

Both our children attend Rotherly. Our eldest boy will be attending school from September and we could not have asked for a better start than Rotherly. The staff are friendly and professional with a very caring attitude towards the children.

The staff is very responsive to suggestions and concerns we had about little milestones and issues along the way such as meal times, potty training and work very hard to make sure things go as smoothly as possible. Their input is very constructive and helpful and they are accommodating and flexible.

The children have been so happy here, and we cannot thank the staff enough.
