Reviews

6.9 Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.851)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.5 for Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 2.351 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0.952 , then divided by 2 = 0.476

  • 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 Sunshine Day Nursery Hilton

  • Mother of Child

Sunshine Day Nursery have been fantastic at looking after my son. He started at the nursery in January aged 6 months. They are caring, encourage him with crawling/walking. I like that they don't separate out the ages and so my son has been able to interact and play with children younger and older than him. I notice when we are at other activities that his is sociable and able to interact with children of all ages, which is wonderful. They also are very flexible and accommodating, so I never feel stressed or worried about changing times/days. Overall I highly recommend.

A lovely, small nursery. It caters for children from 6 months to 7 years. My daughter is 4 and they assisted with pre-school learning. A lovely outdoor play area and a small garden where the children planted strawberries and sunflowers. Would definitely recommend it as my daughter loved it.

The manager and the team really helped settle my son when he had a wobble and became very clingy when I was leaving. My son now enjoys going to nursery, has friends he plays with there regularly and is becoming more confident in everyday situations.

My daughter loves Sunshine and knowing this makes me happy to leave her. The staff are wonderful, caring and kind. They all have a genuine enjoyment for looking after the children at Sunshine. The Manager is flexible and we worked out hours that suited my family well. My only regret is that I didn't start using Sunshine Nursery earlier on!
