Reviews

9.9 Sansway House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.865)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Sansway House Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sansway House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.865 for Sansway House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (83 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.865

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sansway House Day Nursery is based on 7 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 6.6 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.

Reviewer Connection to Sansway House Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My 3yr old daughter started at Sansway House Day Nursery at the end of April. She has settled in really well and happily chats to family and friends about what she has done at nursery. She particularly loves it when the staff take them out for a walk in the local area - they are very lucky to be situated very close to the community farm, and there is a playground a short walk away from the nursery too.
I think that the Dayshare scheme is fantastic as it gives parents the opportunity to find out what their little ones have been up to (sometimes difficult to get information from my daughter - she quite often tells me what she's had for pudding rather than what activities she has done!), I love seeing photos of my daughter enjoying her time at nursery.
The team at Sansway are always friendly and patient, you can tell that they all genuinely care about the children and enjoy their work. They offer a varied range of fun activities for the children to take part in, I'm happy for my child to go to Sansway.

It is a pleasure to look after your daughter and so happy to read that you enjoy your day share.
Thank you for all the lovely things you have said about Sansway.

My daughter started here in Sept 2016 and she absolutely loves it here, she's learnt so much in the past 9 months and that's all thanks to the lovely staff. I would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents I couldn't be any prouder of my girl.

Sansway House Day Nursery has been a wonderful nursery for my children. Really creative activities with the children and great facilities - a large garden and a soft play area. The big garden means they do Forest School there, and the community farm is almost next door so the children have trips to go and see the animals. I have felt extremely happy leaving my children there and they are both quite happy to be dropped off. There is also really good daily communication about what the children have done through the Dayshare email system. I think this is an excellent place for children to grow and learn.

My son has attended Sansway House Day Nursery for 2 and half years. Couldn't be prouder of the young man he's grown into. The staff are a credit to the nursery. A real home from home feel. I proudly read his daily email updates of his day, enjoy seeing his pictures and his creations!! Well done, keep up the good work. Will be sad when he leaves to go to school next September!!

My eldest daughter attended this school so I knew it was the perfect place for my youngest. Lovely staff. Excellent facilities. Excellent food. My baby loves attending this school and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I cannot recommend enough this lovely nursery. Both my sons have attended this nursery from 2008 and it is a great place for them to develop. It is clean and the nursery girls are very nice and competent. Love the forest school and the amazing garden! Very close to a local farm which they frequently visit with the children.

My son has attended here for a few months now, he is really enjoying it, he's learned so much while he's been there, he's saying lots of new words, and can now drink out of a cup.

The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

The nursery has a lovely big garden and inside is very welcoming for the children.

I also receive an email each day to tell me how my son's day went and what he had been doing throughout the day, also what he eats and when he has his nappy changed.

Recommend this nursery very much.
