Overview

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Rising Stars Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rising Stars Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 3 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 4.871 for Rising Stars Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (326 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 371 Ratings = 4.871

  • 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 4.077 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rising Stars 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 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.577

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

My son loves nursery. He has grown and shines with his grown-ups and friends at Rising Stars. There are no bad points for this nursery. I recommend time and time again. I took him to nursery a few days ago. The babies were all sitting looking at the Senior Practitioner who was singing so beautifully the colours of the rainbow. This not only captured the babies but me also. This happens regularly with Rising Stars staff. They are all amazing and go above and beyond. I can't thank you ladies enough.

Rising Stars Nursery is truly an amazing setting and stimulating learning environment for a child. Our initial contact with the nursery was an enquiry over the telephone, and we haven't once regretted placing our children in this nursery. The staff and managers are warm, friendly, and understanding. This has made it so easy for our children to build relationships with their key persons. As parents, we also appreciate the online updates and observations tracking the progress of our children. Having had experiences with other nurseries in the past, Rising Stars Nursery is truly exceptional and stands out. I will highly recommend Rising Stars Nursery as a good start for any child.

What an amazing team at Rising Stars, our daughter left almost 2 years ago and our son now goes 3 times a week which we have slowly built up. Both children built amazing relationships with all staff and children. Our children's Keyworkers have and had strong bonds with each child and this has been clearly apparent when they are excited to see them and if they needed comforting. All staff have and do support us in areas we need advice or have needed to concentrate on to help the children develop and flourish. Our son loves the new outside area that is brilliant for development and socialising with his new friends. The nursery have recently started the Tapestry program, this just tops off how brilliant the nursery is knowing that we can see daily/weekly what our son is experiencing. We can see how much he is learning and at what level he is developing at. We can also share our fun and games we have with family and friends on the programmed too, Staff and parents can also add comments. Our son has been out on local trips to the park and the shops, in the holidays they collected, brought and cooked a lovely breakfast which was very much enjoyed by all. We can't thank all the staff enough for what they have done for our family.

The nursery is a very nice place for my daughter to be in, the environment is nice and friendly with lots of outdoor activities to be done outside in the big playground, and indoor activities. My daughter loves going to nursery and always looks forward to going. The staff are very friendly and always keep up to date information on my daughters performance per day.

Very happy with all the care my son receives, he is very happy to go to nursery and loves telling me about his day. He has learnt so much since starting and has turned into such a lovely little boy as he struggled with new situations and people before coming here.

My daughter loves going to nursery! She was quiet and clingy before starting at Rising Stars, but with help and support from amazing staff she has completely come out of her shell and her confidence is brilliant to watch. I would recommend this nursery to everyone, the kids are happy, safe and comfortable and are learning so much through playing. I can't praise Rising Stars nursery enough!

My daughter was 2 years old when she started nursery, she was a shy little girl who wasn't really used to staying with other people also family around. The nursery was and is really welcome and she absolutely loves going there. Even at the weekend she asks about her key worker. She has learned lots of new things in there as parents we always get fully informed about her day/what she has been doing. This is not our closest nursery but even when we were looking my little one loved it and I don't regret it at all and I would recommend this nursery to my friends.

Our son loves Rising Stars, it is a place where he feels safe and happy. There is a warm, friendly atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. He has a lovely relationship with his key worker. We loves the online learning journal as a way of seeing his progress and development and celebrating his learning.

Well happy, they helped my little girl come a long way with potty training and speaking. The staff are well good, brilliant, helpful they are like our family, help with everything, even my baby that was crying that didn't go to the nursery. They are so understanding with everything. Like my best friends I would walk 100 miles to bring my children here.

My son loves going here, he's made loads of new friends and always comes out saying 'I've had fun today mummy' as he's only 3 this makes me happy. My son also can't have dairy and they cater for his needs. My son fell ill while he was there, getting a really high temperature, they called me straight away and looked after him trying to cool him down until I got there. He's been taken out on trips as well, to a few different places. I can't fault this nursery, my other children used to love it here as well. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and approachable.
