Reviews

6.2 Headstart Nursery has a Review Score of 6.2 (6.184)

The Review Score of 6.2 (maximum of 10) for Headstart Nursery 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Headstart Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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 4.667 for Headstart Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 1.517 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Headstart Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 29 positive Reviews (145 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 29 Target = 0.034 , then divided by 2 = 0.017

  • 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 Headstart Nursery

  • Grandmother of Child

My Granddaughter and Grandson have had the privilege of attending the Nursery during the last twelve months. Both children have thrived and been very happy whilst under the care and attention of the staff. Their needs have been constantly met, monitored and adjusted at all times. They have been happy to go and happy to stay which makes a huge difference to our peace of minds when taking and leaving our little precious ones in the care of others. The environment was homely, safe, inviting and catered for fun and learning at all times. May I thank you all for maintaining standards of care and attention to detail at all times. You have helped them both to start their school life with confidence and take changes in their stride for whatever their futures hold. Please continue with your excellent work and thank you and well done to you all.
