Reviews

8.4 Magic Roundabout Nursery Bristol has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.439)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Magic Roundabout Nursery Bristol is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Magic Roundabout Nursery Bristol in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 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 4.208 for Magic Roundabout Nursery Bristol is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.208

  • 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 4.231 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Magic Roundabout Nursery Bristol is based on 5 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.231

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

My daughter has been attending since she was a year old and absolutely loves nursery. The staff are all lovey and clearly enjoy the job and work well together. They do a good variety of activities and we've really seen her development come on in leaps and bounds.

Lovely dedicated staff. My son loves them. The only criticism I would have is that there have been quite a few people leaving and for a while there wasn't consistency in the carers, however this has now improved and we are much happier now. All in all a good nursery!

The nursery has made huge strides recently and although the building is awkward and the outside space dreary the staff are excellent and engaging and our children have thoroughly enjoyed their time there.

Both my daughters have attended Magic Roundabout. They have always had fun, been well cared for, done a variety of activities and they learned loads. I would 100% recommend it as a nursery or pre-school setting. I cried when they left as the kids love it and the staff are so nice.

Although there is a lot of staff changes going on at the moment my boy really likes going to nursery. To have male nursery staff available is a good thing too.
In addition to this, I think it's great that the children are able to learn another language (in our case Mandarin) when younger is better.
I'd like to get more involved though, with information sheets in the foreign language - as my boy is asking me to translate and I can't help.

Both of my sons have thoroughly enjoyed their time at this nursery, all the staff are lovely and caring and really know my children. However, I feel staff are being let down by management at head office and not offered the support and investment that they need. Whilst it appears more money has been invested recently there is still a long way to go. Equally, management has decided to get parents to pay for this work in advance by increasing fees by up to 35% with a promise of future investment. Before this price rise, I would have recommended the nursery without question. Now I struggle to. Whilst I don't deter people, I also cannot recommend it.

My daughter (2years) has been going to Magic Roundabout Bristol since she was 9 months old. She is very happy at nursery and that's most important thing to me as a mother. Even during the weekends, she shows me dance moves, counting 1 to 10 or roleplay she has learnt at the nursery, or she makes a pretend phone call to her keyworker.

The staff are very lovely. Long opening hours. Lots of events are organised and lots of fun things they do with the children every day.

Thank you for such a lovely review, we are so glad your daughter enjoys her time at nursery and we hope she continues to!

Carers are all excellent, both my children have attended since my return to work. The nursery has taken steps to improve everything recently, from events such as the preschool graduation to extra regular activities.
