Reviews

8.5 Bluebells Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.463)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Bluebells Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bluebells Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • 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 5 for Bluebells Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.463 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bluebells Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.213

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

Excellent nursery. My son has been here for nearly a year now. The staff are warm and friendly and always go the extra mile to make sure that everything is ok. It's a really welcoming nursery and they really care about the children. A bonus is the garden, a lovely large outdoor space.

Stacey Whitehouse, Nursery Manager at Bluebells Day Nursery responded to this review on 21 Mar 2017:

Thank you for such a lovely review. It's great to hear what our current parents think of the setting, staff and nursery overall.

This nursery is a fabulous place, from as soon as I walked in I could tell it was the one for my daughter. The staff are so genuine and kind, the nursery is very clean and exciting, all the rooms are great. The garden is also Brilliant, so large and so much to do, I can tell in the summer they have so much fun, they have their own chef, who cooks delicious food. It is very clear to see that they really do care. I visited lots of nursery's and the standards were very low, not clean, hygiene of the children wasn't good, funny feeling they were a bit fake as if put on for me. I was beginning to think I would never find what I consider a great nursery. I can tell this nursery is fabulous, she didn't cry like at the other ones, she ran off to play and only got upset because we had to come home. You must visit, it looks very small from the front, but it isn't. And the large garden is wonderful and I can tell great fun is had here.
