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 4.833 for Crackerjacks Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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:
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.
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.
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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Crackerjacks Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Sian H (Mother of Child) on Thursday 31 August 2017. Relates to August 2017.
As a mother of two, I have tried numerous nurseries.Unfortunately, my first son trialled most. I used to look at Ofsted reviews, building condition etc. I found that the majority were impersonal and clinical. I was wanting a home from home with my youngest son, somewhere with stability and consistency. I knew straight away when I visited Crackerjacks, that that was exactly what they provided.
The staff have all been there for many years, providing familiar faces to welcome my son each day. They're all so lovely, they have become like family to us. Very sad that the time has come for my youngest to go to school. After 4.5 years with Crackerjacks, we'll miss them very much. In a nutshell, I have nothing bad to say about this childcare provider and would strongly recommend it to anyone.
