Reviews

7.4 Albion House Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.4 (7.360)

The Review Score of 7.4 (maximum of 10) for Albion House Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Albion House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 15 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.86 for Albion House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (154 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.86

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Albion House Day Nursery is based on 15 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I am extremely pleased with the level of service I receive as a parent. The staff update me every night with what my daughter has done, eaten etc. without having to review her book. They genuinely seem to care about her as well encouraging her to develop. I like that the nursery is so homely for her too.

Albion House has lovely and friendly staff. My eldest went to the nursery and I had no reservations about sending my youngest there as well. He loves going. I know when I drop him off that he is in safe hands.

Excellent staff, who engage with the children. My son always talks about his days at nursery and is excited each day we go. So that in itself is a fab reference. I can very highly recommend the baby room, and the staff. They really took good care of him and can't speak more highly of them and the service they provide.

Albion nursery is wonderful for my little boy. He's thrived during his time there. He's so confident and helpful and really cares about the ladies there as well as the friends he's made.

Also, I find it extremely easy to approach the ladies with any concerns I have or to ask about my son's day and I'm regularly given the opportunities to go through his work and progress that they keep record of. It really helps me to keep up with all he's learning. I would recommend Albion day nursery to anyone.

Our son has been attending the nursery for over 12 months and this was the best decision for his happiness, well-being and future development. He has never not wanted to go to nursery and every morning he happily kisses and waves me goodbye. He has come on leaps and bounds with both his learning and social skills. He has excellent and committed key workers who communicate well with us his parents.
there are also additional learning experience for his pre-school time much as French and Jo Jingles where he has the chance of developing different skills
Also a wonderful and much needed outside space for activity and energy relax.
