Reviews

7.6 YMCA Nursery Gosport has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.645)

The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for YMCA Nursery Gosport is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for YMCA Nursery Gosport in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.551 for YMCA Nursery Gosport is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.551

  • 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 3.094 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for YMCA Nursery Gosport is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.094

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

Jo Currass, Manager at YMCA Nursery Gosport responded to this review on 23 May 2016:

Thank you.

My daughter has been at this nursery since she was around 6 months old. I have never really had a problem with the nursery or its staff. They've always been friendly and welcoming. They take pride in everything they do and they are very good at what they do. My daughter comes home every day from nursery and tells me exactly what she has done on that particular day and who's been at nursery what what staff has helped her in any sort of way. My daughter has a very good connection and communication with all of the meme her of staff, old and new. She even pretends to be one of them sometimes.

This nursery/preschool is a clean facility with kind staff who seem to enjoy their work.
There is room for improvement in terms of communication and organisation.
I don't feel that there is a desire to help children advance in terms of their education to what they are capable if they show that they are capable, mainly due to fear of breaking a boundary, or some poorly understood rules that don't suit children s individual needs.

Both my children have been very happy and settled at YMCA. The staff make me feel like my son is the most important child that they look after. They have taken the time to get to know him very well and are always hand on the occasions I have needed advice. The activities and facilities inside are good quality and suit the various needs of the children who attend. The staff are top quality and I feel comfortable leaving my child with them, they are experienced, trustworthy, caring, professional and friendly. They have a parent forum and hold regular events so parents can get involved which is something I very much appreciate.

All of the staff at this nursery are like a big family. I feel as if all of them know my son and it seems as if he is their main focus although this is obviously not the case as they look after a lot of children.
The staff are always bright and happy and they are genuinely interested in things my son has done outside of nursery and in the holidays.
They are always keen on involving parents in coming up with ideas to improve and are not afraid to try different things and think outside the box.
I feel as if all of the staff really care about the children, parents, each other and the community they work in.
10/10 superstars.

The YMCA is a lovely nursery with kind, considerate and caring staff. I am happy that my son is well looked after, well stimulated and happy whilst he is in their care.

I receive an update each day he has been at nursery regarding his activities undertaken, his meals and his his general well being.

We will be sad when it comes time to leave and start school!

I am really pleased with the nursery as my child's speech as come along a lot more and her social skills have improved too. She is now singing, dancing and making up stories with her toys which is lovely to see. I would not have been able to potty train her as quickly either with the help from the practitioners they are all so chatty and helpful and we trust them completely. If I was to have any more kids I will be bringing them here for sure.
