Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Spring Nursery Gaywood is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Spring Nursery Gaywood in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.629 for Spring Nursery Gaywood is calculated as follows: ( (105 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.629

  • 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 Spring Nursery Gaywood is based on 14 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

I always speak highly of the nursery and would always recommend Spring.
We are now on our 3rd child going through the nursery and couldn’t be happier. The children are happy and eager to attend the sessions. The staff and facilities offered here are first class. The children have learnt so much here through play and by being taught.
My little boy has got quite severe allergies to most things and the nursery have been fantastic in adapting to his needs.
I have every trust and faith in this nursery.

Wonderful staff, my baby is not used to being left, and gets upset, the staff are so accommodating and try hard to make her feel settled. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

My daughter loves coming here. She is really coming on leaps and bounds. I find the nursery staff very easy to talk to and my little girl never has a day when she doesn't want to attend school. I thank all the staff for what they do on a day to day basis.

I am happy with the nursery and the care they provide to my little boy. He learns a lot, he has friends there. He is so excited every day before going there. For me, that is enough to be happy with our choice of nursery.

Thank you for your review.

My child has been at the nursery since she was 9 months old, the staff are always welcoming and friendly, she is happy at the nursery they do lots of activities with the children and she always comes home with paintings, drawings etc. They have been very supportive during potty training and always encouraged her to use the toilets and are happy to change her if she’s had an accident. They hold Christmas fairs, bingo events and summer fairs to help fundraise for the nursery and encourage parents to come along and join in which is good for the community.

Fantastic nursery. Can not fault them. They have been very adaptive to my child's needs. I have a child with medical needs and I know I am able to leave my child with them and know they are well looked after. Would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Definitely happy with everything, kind staff, interesting activities for children. It makes my heart melt when my baby comes home with a little present. My son enjoys it and in school holidays ask when he goes to nursery again. No complaints at all. Can say a huge thank you.
