The Review Score of 4.8 (maximum of 10) for Mereside Farm Children's Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mereside Farm Children's Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.783 for Mereside Farm Children's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Mereside Farm Children's Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0

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

Reviewer Connection to Mereside Farm Children's Nursery

We have been extremely happy with Mereside Farm Nursery. The staff are fantastic, they truly care about the children, they have always taken time and effort in caring for my girls and reporting on their progress. My girls started at the age of 2 and 3 years and have attended here since January 2015. They both enjoy the nursery and have developed brilliantly. My eldest daughter also went to Mereside Farm nursery at the age of 2 in 2010 and since then we were so happy with our choice.
I would highly recommend this nursery to parents.

My son has attended this nursery since January 2015. The staff were very helpful at settling him in. My son has a long term medical condition and as such needs some extra monitoring. They have always kept us fully informed of his day to day activities and if they have any concerns with is wellbeing while attending the nursery.
I would highly recommend this nursery to any parent.

My son started his placement September 2015 at Mereside Farm nursery and I can honestly say it's a very happy and friendly place to be. The staff and management are lovely and very approachable and take on board any specific requests. I look forward to seeing the next steps in my son with the help from the nursery and would definitely recommend the nursery to all.

My son attends here and has since August, the staff are friendly and do an amazing job looking after my son. He hardly communicated before but is now very confident and his learning is coming along brilliantly. My son now aged 5 attended the nursery a few years ago so it was without any hesitation that my youngest was to go here.
Staff are approachable friendly and make the children feel safe and at home just what every parent wants to see.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Mereside for making my daughters transition into nursery as stressless for both of us as possible, in the first few weeks they always tried their very best to make sure I was comfortable and happy, the communication is excellent, this was very important to me as I was able to relax knowing she is happy and enjoying herself.

Having looked round at a number of nurseries I extremely happy with my choice, I can already see a massive change in my daughter she is developing brilliantly and learning new words all the time. Keep up the good work!
