Reviews

9.3 Rocking Horse Kindergarten has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.348)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Rocking Horse Kindergarten is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rocking Horse Kindergarten in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.963 for Rocking Horse Kindergarten is calculated as follows: ( (104 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.963

  • 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 4.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rocking Horse Kindergarten 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.385

  • 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 only attended the nursery for a few months but the staff have been brilliant. They offer a great range of activities both inside and out. The menu of food is really varied and lots of opportunities for children to be creative. All the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. Keep you up to date with my child's progress and are flexible to suit his needs.

Thank you for such kind words Sarah and we are all so happy that you are pleased with the service we provide for you and your son.

This nursery was the best out of the other 3 nurseries that I visited. The manager was very nice and was able to answer all the questions that I asked. In each room I looked at, I was very pleased and felt welcomed. Instantly I knew that this was the nursery for my daughter.

Overall, this nursery is excellent. My daughter comes home every day with a smile on her face and she is developing really well for her age. The food on site is cooked fresh and she loves every meal and has gained a great appetite since. I am very happy with this nursery and would recommend to anyone.

Thank you for such kind words and are pleased you are happy with all that we do.

My son has been attending Rocking Horse Nursery since he was 14 months old. He's now in the pre-school room and I am impressed with how he's been cared for over the last 2 and a bit years. The staff are brill, the manager is so welcoming and approachable, the cook provides a great assortment of meals and snacks and my son participates in a wide range of activities. The garden was the selling point and he loves being outside on a daily basis as it's like visiting the park due to what it has to offer my son and his friends.
