The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Happy Days Nursery - Penrice 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happy Days Nursery - Penrice in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 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 4.889 for Happy Days Nursery - Penrice is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 4.672 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happy Days Nursery - Penrice is based on 9 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.672

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

My child absolutely loves his time at pre-school. I've watched him develop and grow in many ways; emotionally, education/academically and he has access to extracurricular activities such as tennis lessons.

Management are superb and hot on keeping you up to date with protocol and any changes. They are very flexible and bend over backwards to meet my needs and my child's. I feel content and happy in the knowledge that my son is safe, well looked after and having a wonderful time. I couldn't recommend highly enough.

Great place of care for my 2-year-old, learning new things every session and great with helping new skills such a potty training. A safe and happy environment to begin my child's learning journey.

My daughter has attended Happy Days Nursery - Penrice since she was 9 months old. We were given lots of settling in sessions and made to feel comfortable with the process.
My daughter has moved up in classes at each time it has been at her pace, a very child-friendly approach to service delivery.
I am positive that my daughter's learning and independence has been in part to the activities at Penrice, she loves her lunch there and we have already recommended Happy Days to friends and family.

Excellent nursery. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. Management also lovely and easy to talk to about any matters. The interaction and learning with the children is very good constant learning through play, group and individual activities. They talk with the children about everything they are doing and try to instil being safe, kind to others and explore and explain "Well why do we do this", "what happens if we do this", my child also loves the cooked lunches.
