The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for St George's Nursery School (Aylestone) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St George's Nursery School (Aylestone) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.656 for St George's Nursery School (Aylestone) is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.656

  • 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 3.053 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St George's Nursery School (Aylestone) is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 18.8 Target = 0.053

  • 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 St George's Nursery School (Aylestone)

I can't praise this nursery enough, my daughter loves it here. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone. My daughter's confidence and speaking has drastically changed since being at this nursery. It's such a shame she has to leave soon to move onto the next step in schooling.
All the staff are very friendly and always welcoming. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since attending this nursery.
10/10 I'd say.

The strengths of the nursery are the comfortable rooms and outdoor spaces, the presence of some long-standing staff and managers and the overall quality of care. It has also been positive to see how the confidence of some care staff has grown over time, and that the nursery has helped them to develop into very competent professionals. We feel that children could spend much more time outdoors, and the noise level in the older children's room is quite high. However the nursery has done very well in helping our child with some key skills including potty training and social skills.

We now have two children attending St George's Nursery. The youngest of which has only just started going this month and our oldest has been going for over two years now. The staff are absolutely amazing and the boys both love them. They are so welcoming and really make an effort to make you feel comfortable and reassured as they appreciate leaving your children isn't easy.
As my partner and myself both work shift patterns we find it difficult to have a set pattern with the nursery. However the management are fantastic at helping us figure out how to make work for us.
The variety of food they offer the children is amazing and we were extremely impressed with the kitchen facilities and even the cook is so friendly. Everything is fresh and it actually is. They have an allergy board to ensure children with food allergies are safe and different boards for meat and veg preparation.
I couldn't praise this nursery and their staff enough. Honestly best nursery ever.

A lovely environment with friendly, caring staff who worked really hard to settle in my daughter, including when she found it difficult to come back after a long holiday. My daughter appears really happy there, and I have been impressed with their communication with us.

Very loving and supportive environment and I would reccomend it any time.
My child spent several happy years with the team and I feel that they are all their family away from the family.
Learning wise my child had an excellent development, maybe more than I expected.

I've been using St George's for about 3 years or more now for holiday care. I only happened to stumble upon it as I was desperate for holiday cover as my regular nursery let me down on short notice.

After browsing a few nurseries I decided on this one as I was made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere is absolutely lovely and the staff are very friendly and caring. One is made to feel completely at home and you feel as if all your concerns are listened to. The food is very healthy and delicious and my son always has numerous helpings. I can't fault this nursery as compared to other nurseries the cost is very reasonable.

My daughter attended St George's nursery three days a week (only in term time). She love going there, the teachers there are really nice people, my daughter was very shy but going to the nursery she has changed into more outgoing little girl. As a mother what I love about the nursery is that, they have parents' meeting which it really good, so you can know how your child is doing in nursery.
Overall the nursery is a really good place to send your child to. Very safe and they have lots of activities for the kids to do.
