Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.947 for Castle Nursery at Parkside is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.947

  • 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 3.467 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Castle Nursery at Parkside 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.217

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

Both my children go to Castle nursery and I have to say it’s amazing! The place is so homely, staff are friendly they are almost like a second family. They provide a wide variety of activities, each month focusing on different topics. My children have come on leaps and bounds since starting. They cater for children with various allergies, my daughter is lactose intolerant and they have catered for her without any hassle. Would highly recommend this nursery to any worried parent out there trying to find childcare.

Our son joined Castle Nursery at Parkside in September 2015. We have been delighted with the nursery. The staff are great and we feel reassured our son is getting the best care. It is so friendly and homely and our son loves it. The activities and work our son gets to enjoy and bring home is lovely- we get an insight to his day.

My little boy is leaving Castle in September to start school, he has been there since he was 9 months old. They really are a fantastic set up, I can honest day they have all played a huge part in bringing my little boy up, teaching him new skills and contributing towards his development. I would strongly recommend them to parents looking for a nursery.

Excellent Preschool! My child is extremely happy there and I have no concerns when I leave. The team have helped us through some difficult times with behaviour, going the extra mile to look after myself and my child. I have recommended Castle Nursery to a number of friends and look forward to sending my daughter next year.
