Reviews

9.2 Seashells Nursery has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.232)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Seashells Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Seashells Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.972 for Seashells Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.972

  • 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 4.26 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Seashells Nursery is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.260

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

I absolutely love the nursery. All the staff are warm friendly and welcoming. I always send my foster children here, they have all done extremely well. All the children have loved their time at the nursery. Several of my grandchildren have also attended here. This nursery is highly recommended by me. With regards to the Safeguarding, the nursery has been excellent. I have no concerns at all.

I'm very happy with the care my children receive whilst at nursery, they really like the staff and are always excited to go (sometimes they don't want to leave ??) and I love the fact I can see what they have been up to on their learning journals, and they provide balance healthy meals and snacks.

My son talks about all the staff and enjoys going into the room to learn and play with his friends.
I love being able to see my son's development on Tapestry it gives you an insight into what he does throughout his day.

I'm very happy with this nursery, my eldest used to go to this nursery and now my youngest has just started here and loves it. She settled very quickly no tantrums or upset just runs in due to all the staff being so lovely. My eldest loved going to this nursery and now my youngest loves going, so one happy mother. Staff are always happy and welcoming they are just wonderful can't fault them in any way.
