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 4.903 for Aviva Acorns is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.903

  • 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 4.758 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Aviva Acorns 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.758

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

Our second child attends Acorns nursery within the Aviva centre and we are as happy with it as the first time. We cannot fault any aspect of the nursery. All of the staff are just wonderful and our children are and have been, very pleased to attend the setting, which is all we can ask for.
The quality of care is outstanding and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone that is able to get their child in there. Well done ladies.

My daughter has attended the nursery for the last 3 years and she loves it. She enjoys going there and she loves all the staff. We are very happy with the care provided and the activities they do we are informed every day of what they have done and we have regular meetings with the key worker to discuss the progress. The food provided is also very good with lots of varieties and healthy.

My son loves his time at Aviva Acorns. Being attached to our office, it is convenient and good value for money. More importantly, the staff really know my son. His key workers feel part of the family. They don't push learning in a classroom way but my son is picking up an impressive knowledge of numbers, alphabet etc through play and songs. He has a lovely group of friends and we are very happy.

I love the nursery. They look after my child extremely well. I always know they are happy and safe. The only small thing at the moment is the new menu. It seems quite funny and fussy and it doesn't seem very popular with the children yet. Not sure if this will change!
I love the nursery though, so thank you everyone who works there!

My husband and I feel our son's development physically, socially and cognitively has benefited from attending Acons for one day per week. We feel confident in the care and attention our son receives during his time at Acorns. We are always fully informed of his daily activities as well as any significant events milestones that have been achieved.

My daughter is very happy at Acorns and is well looked after by all staff. Staff are friendly and always on hand to share information and share advice. The range of activities and resources available are brilliant and there’s lots on offer. The nursery is bright and clean and always smells delicious, the smell of lunch cooking always makes me hungry. My daughter eats better than I do! Thank you Acorns you all do a great job.
