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 4.833 for The Old Barn Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 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:

    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 3.463 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Old Barn 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 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.213

  • 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 The Old Barn Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

Our son has been at The Old Barn since he was 6 months old and will be leaving for Primary School soon. There have been a few staff changes in his time but all have been handled well and we have always been confident in sending our son there.
We moved away from Narborough 18 months ago and looked at other options closer to home but we didn't feel comfortable with any of them so kept our son at The Old Barn. He has always been happy to attend and the staff are very attentive and caring.

I have recommended this nursery to numerous friends and will continue to do so.

I have all 3 of my children at The Old Barn, with my eldest due to leave to start Primary school this year.

We have always been pleased with the environment and feel of the nursery. There have been inevitable staff changes over time, but this has never impacted on the service and care received.

The activities and resources implemented have shown real variance and the children enjoy. The online journal is a great way of monitoring your child’s progress, as well as regular parents evenings. The staff are brilliant and engaging with the children, of which we have enjoyed seeing them develop since attending The Old Barn

Overall I'm very pleased with The Old Barn Day Nursery. My son has learnt new words and is responding to questions, overall he is progressing really well with his learning and that is down to the staff working along side of him. I find communication can be poor at times with certain members of staff, this can cause confusion and can sometimes affect my sons learning progressions. My son gets very excited to go to nursery and gets on very well with staff and I'm really pleased with choosing The Old Barn Day Nursery for my son.
