Reviews

9.8 ACP Early Years has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.788)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for ACP Early Years is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for ACP Early Years in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.788 for ACP Early Years is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.788

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for ACP Early Years 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 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 4.4 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.

This is a very good nursery where the children are cared for and learn and play. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this nursery because children are happy and look forward to coming here and the nursery itself is clean and has toys for the children to play with.

I have two children that are currently in ACP Early Years. One is a toddler and the other a baby. The staff at ACP Early Years have been so welcoming and warm towards me and my children, that I have full faith and trust in leaving my two children in this setting to be cared for. My toddler especially enjoys her time in nursery and looks forward to every day in nursery.
Thank you for being such a great nursery for my children and I'm sure others too.

I would say ACP Early Years is doing a very good job. My daughter enjoys coming to this nursery. She feels upset in the days when she cannot go due to being ill. She loves to sing nursery rhymes whilst her keyworker listens. Thank you to all of the team at ACP.

We are very pleased with our daughter's progress while attending ACP Nursery. She has grown in confidence and her speech is coming along too. Every day we get a full report - off her teacher about what she's been doing, eating and her behaviour.
They are excellent there and our daughter really enjoys going.
Thanks ACP, we would definitely recommend.

Very helpful and caring staff members guiding by an experienced coordinator. What more could I want for my child's smooth transition? I wish the entire team best of luck for their hard work and all that extra mile they go to keep the children happy while the parents are away. It's a little comfy home away from their own home :-)

I am very satisfied with the nursery and also with the environment and staff. My son is always willing to go to nursery by himself and also he joins in with all the nursery activities. The staff, especially his key worker are very caring about my son and they always appreciate my son trying any new activities which he doesn't know about. My sons learning has also progressed in the nursery and we as parents are very happy.

My baby was three months premature. He started ACP Early Years Nursery when he was 11 months old. He had medical needs and I was very nervous about leaving him in a nursery however the staff were very kind, friendly and understanding at the same time very professional in meeting my babies needs. My baby has established a wonderful relationship with his keyworker who really understands my baby and his needs. All the staff at ACP Early Years are FANTASTIC they do a great job of looking after all the children.
