Reviews

9.9 Rainbows Nursery School Elstead has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.896)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Rainbows Nursery School Elstead 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rainbows Nursery School Elstead in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.896 for Rainbows Nursery School Elstead is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rainbows Nursery School Elstead is based on 8 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 has been attending Rainbows since he was two (1 year) and he loves going. The nursery is set in the village hall and has a really nice friendly community feel. The hall is really big with lots of different activities set up every day; everything from dressing up, crafts, physical activities, puzzles, reading corner, music etc, there is something for every child and the staff really think about different and topical activities to help with learning and play.
One of the unique things about Rainbows is that the staff are really creative when it comes to devising activities. Amongst other things, they have had external visitors attend for talks, like doctors or people with animals. Sometimes they also take children out, for example going to see fire engines.
They are also very proactive in helping each child develop to their own ability so the children are well adjusted when they start school.
Rainbows manage to balance learning, confident child development and fun very well!

Rainbows is an exceptional nursery school, and our 3yr-old son loves going there. Since he started his character has become much more confident and he has become increasingly interested in new activities and learning. The manager and her lovely team have built a great rapport with him and are terrific in varying the pace between one-on-one learning and attention and stepping back and letting him lose himself in messy or creative play. Because of the amount of space in the village hall, all the children are free to play in different areas without crowding each other, and a number of different 'zones' are set-up daily. These rotate between all sorts of different activities including puzzles, cars, messy play, dressing up, reading, nature tables, etc. From our experience with previous nurseries, this one honestly stands head and shoulders above others in helping little souls develop in a happy and encouraging environment. I recommend Rainbows to all parents who are looking for great day care.

Rainbows Nursery is an excellent nursery school and we are extremely happy we chose it. Our daughter has grown in confidence since starting here and educationally it is exceptional. The manager and her team are professional and fully focussed on providing the best care and support for each individual child. The village hall setting provides lots of space for the children and there is a playground too. It really feels that Rainbows Nursery is part of the community and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Rainbows is a really great pre-school, my nephew absolutely loves going there and comes home smiling after a great day with his friends. There was a change of owner last year which has brought some changes, and many improvements in my opinion. It's great to see them expanding and the child's voices being heard. Many thanks, Rainbows!
