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 4.85 for Footsteps Nursery and Pre School is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.85

  • 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 3.738 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Footsteps Nursery and Pre School is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.238

  • 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 Footsteps Nursery and Pre School

  • Mother of Child
    5

Our daughter has attended this nursery for the last two years, she has come on immensely since starting in the baby room, her confidence has grown, her counting and knowledge has grown massively and she is always thoroughly happy whilst there. They always do a wide variety of activities, and always engage parents in the activities too. My daughter was assigned a key worker in each room which has helped her settle and bond in each room. The staff are always happy and friendly and will always put your mind at rest when I call to check how she is doing.
The nursery is a safe, happy environment to leave my little one, she has made some wonderful friends and bonds both with children her age and the staff she see's each time she attends, thank you to all the staff at this nursery who have brought my little one along so much, always cared for her and have made what is a very emotional time leaving your little one that little bit easier to know she is looked after so well.

My child has been happy attending nursery since the 1st day. Staff are all super friendly, offer advice when asked about how to help development etc and I have absolutely no concerns leaving my daughter in their care. The staff put our minds at rest when we call to check on her, which they never mind us doing if we have any concerns.

On a couple of occasions, my daughter was ill at nursery and I could not fault the Footsteps staff in how they dealt with the situation. They reacted quickly and even the nursery manager sat with her until I arrived.

The outdoor play area is safe, well equipped and fun for all the children.

My daughter loves attending nursery and has had it changed mid-term due to us moving home. This has been a seamless transition (she moved from Dosthill to Cannock). My daughter's confidence has soared and she seems well equipped for school. I know she will miss her teachers and friends that she has made when she moves in September. The staff are always cheerful, even at the end of the day. I always feel safe leaving my daughter there.

Footsteps is such a lovely environment to send our children to. They both have a lovely time when they are there and learn new things daily. All the staff are lovely and have a wonderful bond with the children. This is very important to me that they have people they are happy to go to.

My child is currently in the toddlers room at this Nursery and he absolutely loves it! He has been here since he was 8 months old. The Nursery has recently been renovated and now has excellent resources. The staff are all friendly and very approachable. The food which is all prepared onsite is excellent, my son who can be fussy arts everything! I feel that my son is getting an excellent start to his early years education and would highly recommend it.
