  • 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.

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.

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

My daughter started at the nursery at the beginning of the month, I had heard mixed reviews but I am 100% happy with the care received by my daughter, all staff are understanding and make sure my daughter is cared for, it has a new manager who deals with queries very quickly. The admin lady is very polite and handles invoices and explains this very well, I am very happy with how my daughter is progressing and learning lots.

My son attended this nursery over 5 years ago and loved it then, I have since returned back to the same nursery with my daughter who is just 10 months old. The environment is lovely, the staff are incredibly friendly and most importantly Rose loves her time there. As with any young child, she has taken time to adjust and settle in and just 1 month on she is happy and very settled. The staff have done an amazing job of ensuring she did settle and she has bonded well with all, not just her key worker. I know when I drop Rose to the nursery her day will be filled with playing, eating, more playing but also learning and making memories. I take huge relief in knowing she is there being looked after so incredibly well.

Blackberry Bush has been fantastic since our son started with them. The nursery itself always appears clean and the baby room has a great layout with various different sections. The staff are wonderful and have made the whole process of sending him to nursery much easier. There have been some staffing changes since he started but these changes are always well communicated. They are wonderful at letting parents know what has been going on throughout the day and keeping them updated with important information. Overall we are extremely pleased with the nursery and would highly recommend them.
