Reviews

9.8 School House Private Day Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.842)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for School House Private Day Nursery Ltd 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for School House Private Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.842 for School House Private Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (103 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 School House Private Day Nursery Ltd is based on 10 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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.

We have two children who have attended School House Nursery in Bromsgrove over the last 7 years. The nursery is welcoming, happy, clean and provides a stimulating setting for young children. Both children have really enjoyed their time at nursery, going happily in a morning and being engrossed in play on collection. The positive role models set by the staff really encourage the children to shine. Would very much recommend.

I have had 3 children at Dodford since 2009. I currently have my youngest there who attends full-time. Schoolhouse was recommended to me 8 years ago and that was the best thing that could have happened for my family and I! In all my time there I have never had a single complaint, a single issue with anyone who works there or manages the nursery. The care they have given to my children has been exemplary.

My daughter has been very settled at School House. She has transitioned from each room with great confidence and independence. She chats in the car all the way home telling me all about her day at nursery. All the staff have catered for her individual needs and helped make her a confident outgoing little girl. The activities and experiences offered to her are fantastic and she thrives from these experiences.

Steph Grasby, Nursery Manager at School House Private Day Nursery Ltd responded to this review on 22 Feb 2017:

Thank you for reviewing our Nursery. We are delighted that your daughter has transitioned through the Nursery with great confidence and independence. We continually ensure all our children's individual needs are met by providing them with a happy, safe, relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. We strive to afford all children with a high standard of care and education, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.

As a first time mother, I plague the staff with what I'm sure most would consider obvious questions. The staff at School House Private Day Nursery are very patient with me and have ensured my son has an educational, fun and challenging start to life. He loves attending nursery and is always pleased when his now moments are recorded and subsequently stuck on our fridge. I love that School House caters for different cultures and celebrates them all.

Steph Grasby, Nursery Manager at School House Private Day Nursery Ltd responded to this review on 22 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your review. We recognise and empathise how difficult it can be for parents to bring their children to Nursery, especially for the first time and we are so pleased to have made this new transition in your son's life as easy as possible for both him and yourselves. We strive to ensure our team consistently comprises of staff of varied age and life experience as well as skills and knowledge within Early Years. We embrace all cultures and enjoy celebrating these with all the children across the Nursery and really appreciate that you value these experiences too.

My daughter started attending School House since September 2015 she was 6 months old when she started.
All of the staff are wonderful, friendly, caring and nothing is too much trouble.
My daughter is thriving and developing well and I really feel this is due to the activities and experiences she receives from nursery.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend School House to anyone who was looking for a nursery in the Bromsgrove area.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Nursery. We guarantee that our staff team all take great pride in the standard of care they provide for all the children. Our commitment to employing highly qualified staff coupled with continuous training and development, ensures every child gains a positive learning experience to suit their own developmental needs.

My son has attended School House for 2.5 years and loves going there.
The staff are all very friendly and caring and I have had no cause for concern for his welfare at any point. As it is a small nursery, everyone knows everyone, (children, staff, parents) and there is a lovely family feel to the place. Each child is made to feel important and their individual personalities are encouraged to be expressed. His development both socially and mentally has been incredible and he is definitely ready for school now even though he has another nine months to go! My son has formed very strong bonds with both the staff and other children who attend and it will be a sad day for all of us when he has to leave to go to school.
I cannot fault this nursery and would definitely recommend it.
