Reviews

8.6 Roslin Nursery has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.592)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Roslin Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Roslin Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 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 4.759 for Roslin Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.759

  • 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 3.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Roslin 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.333

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

Reviewer Connection to Roslin Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My son attended Roslin for three years on a part time basis from 9 months old to 3 and a half years old. Leaving a baby in another person's care is a very hard choice for any new parent, and the team at Roslin understood that very much. They were very attentive to him when he first settled in. He quickly formed bonds with different members of staff and his confidence grew.

Even as a baby, the environment at Roslin is very creative and engaging and they always have the children involved in many different activities. At every stage of my son's time at Roslin he was lovingly cared for, transitioned through the various classes and guided through all sorts of development. His character has grown so much in the time he has been there and he really loved going to nursery. I have to say that I was very impressed with the food that was cooked by the resident chef for all the children, at all stages. I always felt good knowing that my son had healthy meals to eat whilst he wasn't at home with me.

Thank you Anna, for your kind words. Best wishes to you all for the future.

Lovely, friendly, caring environment. Our boy picked up many skills and became confident and socially adept. Always happy to help. Was very sad to leave when we moved house in January. Would recommend to anybody!

Thank you Cristina, for your kind review. We hope you are all happy in your new home.

Choosing a nursery for my son was difficult, leaving him with strangers was a daunting thought. We viewed 4 nurseries in the local area ranging from £50.00 - £90.00 per day. When we came to visit it just had a lovely feel to it and the staff were so welcoming. Our son who was 18 months old played there straight away. We didn't hesitate and signed him there for 2 days a week. He started in Oct 2016 and at first, he was dubious but now he waves us off in the mornings and he loves going. There is a physical playroom which is great and he paints, colours, plays, sings and talks and is getting more social all the time. Highly recommended.

My son started attending Roslin Nursery in late August. The staff were amazing, helping him to settle in and although the beginning was hard for him, he soon started looking forward to going to nursery. The staff are very professional but warm and loving at the same time. They have a great relationship with the children and truly care about them. The children are supported with their learning and social skills. The nursery has good facilities and provides great child care.

My son has attended since 10 months and is now 3, and has loved it here. The staff genuinely care for the children, and my son has always given the staff big cuddles in the morning, so loves them too. Great facilities including 'extra' pay for options, and for me, it's the right size and the opposite of a chain-style nursery, feeling very welcoming and homely. Some areas of admin could improve, eg. bills can be confusing with all the childcare voucher/15 hour free payments.

Thank you Helen, It has been a pleasure to look after your two lovely boys.

Our daughter has been at Roslin for a year, since she was 11 months old. She absolutely loves it and it's a fantastic nursery, with genuinely caring staff, who really tailor things to their individual characters and needs. I feel like my daughter is not just looked after, but loved.
