b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.333 for York House Day Nursery Salisbury is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.333
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:
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.
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.
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 3.477 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for York House Day Nursery Salisbury is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25
Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.227

Review submitted from a Postal Card by H B (Mother of Child) on Monday 9 April 2018. Relates to March 2018.
My daughter has attended York House since she was 9 months old, now 4 1/2. The nursery as a whole has improved by the take over by Busy Bees. I find all staff caring and attentive and feel they are valued and purposeful. I am hoping that the garden will improve as the weather improves and also interior decoration. My daughter always comes home happy, healthy and beaming with pride that she has had an excellent day. Big thanks to all!

We have used York House for a little over two years, during this time we have felt they have been amazing through my child's development.
They provide us with an amazing, flexible service and work with us to support my child.
Each staff member brings a strength that contributes to a seemingly well-oiled machine. The manager is approachable and supports her team by helping out whenever needed.
