Reviews

8.3 Keele University Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.304)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Keele University Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Keele University Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.976 for Keele University Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.976

  • 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 3.328 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Keele University Day Nursery 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 25.6 positive Reviews (128 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 25.6 Target = 0.078

  • 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 Keele University Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    7

My eldest child attended Keele from 10 months old to starting school and my youngest has been attending from 10 months old. I would not consider any other nursery provider as the care and support provided has been, and is, exceptional. The staff are friendly and develop a wonderful rapport with the children enabling them to become socially confident and supported through the EYFS.

Julie Tatton, Administrator at Keele University Day Nursery responded to this review on 18 Apr 2017:

Thank you for your comments. It is lovely to have this feedback.

Keele University Day Nursery is excellent, the staff are caring and friendly, safety for the children is brilliant, my son loves going and has come out of his shell. They have got him speaking in longer sentences and understanding numbers, letter and colour. I highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

My little boy has only been at the nursery for 3 months and already we can see how much he has developed and learnt in such a short space of time. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the facilities are great too.

My daughter went to Keele university day nursery until she was ready to start reception class in school. When she went to school the teachers asked what nursery she went to as she was finding the work given to her very easy. This was due to the hard work of the staff at this nursery. My daughter loved the staff and was always kept busy and entertained. She was very well looked after which made leaving her to go to work easier. I have recommended this nursery to others and will continue to do so. I have also secured a place for my other daughter who is 6 months old for when I return to work in January.

I have nothing but good to say about this nursery. The staff are loving and caring yet professional. The confidence they have brought out in my 2yr old boy is amazing.
The activities are varied and fun and educational. The menu is very healthy and jam packed full of variation. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.

Keele is a wonderful nursery. My daughter has been attending 4 days a week for the past year and has done so well there. She is happy and well looked after and I could'nt ask for better carers than the ones who have taken care of her. There are brilliant opportunities there for her, she has been to the nature garden and seen chickens and she goes to rhythm time classes each week. Security is great at the nursery and I am never worried about her safety.
