The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Acorns Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Acorns Nursery 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 4.417 for Acorns Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.417
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:
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.
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.
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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorns Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Andrew L (Father of Child) on Wednesday 2 May 2018. Relates to May 2018.
Acorns nursery is a wonderful environment that helps children to learn, socialise and thrive. My daughter has now been at Acorns for 2 years, the staff there have always ensured they tailored their care for her to meet her needs and take the time to help her understand her emotions. Acorns have always listened to how we parent and amend their approach where possible to ensure she can learn life skills consistently. My second child will be starting there soon.
