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 5 for Abacus Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 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 3.674 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abacus Day 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.174

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

Amazing child centred environment. Staff know the children and work in close partnership with parents and carers. As a nanny, I often pick up and activities are available at the children's height, staff are constantly communicating with the children. The environment is welcoming and they have there own fresh water bottles which allows and promotes independence. Management have great knowledge of the children and are quick to reassure you of any concerns you have, safeguarding is out this world with constant checks and a member of management always around to greet you and say goodbye. This setting 100% deserve outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Kim. We are really delighted to receive such glowing feedback - I will make sure your praise is passed on to the team.

Couldn't have asked for a nicer nursery to send my child to. Leaving her was really hard, to begin with, but I knew she was in safe hands and happy. She has come on such a long way since starting at Abacus. I cannot thank the team enough for all that they have done. We will really miss you!
