Reviews

8.4 Goldsmith Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.378)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Goldsmith Day Nursery 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Goldsmith Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.521 for Goldsmith Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (26 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.521

  • 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 3.857 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Goldsmith Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.357

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

A very friendly, welcoming and professional nursery. I have two children who really enjoy coming here and both have made great progress in confidence, social skills and learning. The nursery staff are amazing and work very hard to ensure children are happy, safe, well-behaved and that they have an enjoyable day.

I have found the nursery to be very kind and caring in their approach to looking after my two-year old son. The staff are knowledgeable and approachable and keep me informed of any incidents or changes to routine.I am happy with the stimulation that is provided and the nursery appears to be clean and well maintained. I find that there is flexibility in dates and times to help with working parents.

I have had two children attend this nursery now and both have been so happy to leave me.
The staff are loving and really care about my children, they ask about their days off and involve me and dad in everything they do. My now 8-year-old was so prepared for school, he didn't cry or cling to me when he started school. My 2-year-old is now speaking so well and is independent. I was so happy after my first experience I didn't need to look anywhere else.
