Reviews

8 Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.012)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Gooseberry Bush 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.944 for Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 3.068 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.068

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

My son has been at the nursery from nine months. He started in the youngest class of babies and has graduated up to the next age group. He is a sensitive little boy and I was nervous about how he would cope, both at first and with the move up to a new room.
I need not have been because he’s been so well cared for throughout. The team have encouraged and coaxed him out of himself so well. Each of his key workers so far have been so engaged and positive. It is lovely that no matter what the team take time to hand over at drop off and pick up.
I am kept up to date with his development/progress in key skills etc. and his first full report was so detailed; it was lovely to see how well understood he is as a little person. Most often when I collect him he is buoyed up and pointing out things of interest in his room. He is clearly really happy there!

I'm very happy with leaving my son here at Gooseberry Bush, the staff are extremely friendly and so nice towards my son. My son finds pre-school very upsetting as only three years old, but the staff have so much patience with calming my son, they phone me to let me know how he is getting on. I'm very happy with his new pre-school. A big thumbs up!

A lovely nursery, caring and friendly. My eldest started school in September. He was very ready for this and with the preparation of preschool has made huge strides. He is confident and independent. So many activities take place with thought and care. I am amazed to see what they do and achieve. So much support for potty training and achieving independence. My children have developed strong bonds with the staff.

Both my girls have loved this nursery, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and the pre-school room leader is amazing, what she does with each and every child in preparing them to school is truly brilliant.
She is very bubbly and enthusiastic and her enthusiasm rubs off on the children, for me it made my children look forward to coming to Gooseberry Bush to have fun and learn new things!

My son has a fantastic time in the baby room, all his needs are met and he is happy during his time at nursery. The management are great listeners and communicate well. If ever myself or my wife need a question answered or just a listening ear we know that we can talk to the management team.

My son was quite unsettled at first the staff bar non were wonderful. Patient, calm, with advice rather than being bossy and, made me feel that he was in good hands, even if I was upset about leaving him. He has settled now and loves it and I am very grateful to them all.
