Reviews

8.7 Sunflowers Nursery School has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.711)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Sunflowers Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunflowers Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.604 for Sunflowers Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.604

  • 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 4.107 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunflowers Nursery School is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.357

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

Both of my children have attended Sunflowers Nursery from being babies and I am extremely happy with the care they have received. The nursery is clean and well equipped. Staff are friendly and attentive towards the children, providing appropriate care and attention for each child. Both of my children are bright and eager to learn and are adequately challenged through the activities that they do. The standard of food is good, with well-balanced meals and healthy snacks and they have catered extremely well for my dairy intolerant child. My eldest child loves the outdoor play areas and caring for the rabbit.
Overall a lovely nursery that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

My daughter has been at Sunflowers since she was 13 months and she's now 4 1/2 and she loves going. By going to Sunflowers I feel it has brought her on so much from her learning to talk to writing her name and eating a different variety of meals. All the staff have been excellent right from the start. They accommodate us with extra days if we need them or on the odd occasion changing days. Nothing is ever a problem.

My daughter really enjoys and I'll be very sad when she leaves in July to go to school. Really can't recommend Sunflowers enough.

My little lady loves Sunflowers. She's settled quickly, has a great relationship with the staff who always seem pleased to see her. She is able to access a range of resources and takes part in activities I wouldn't think about trying at home, shaving foam, playing in beans, custard, flour etc. She's seems to eat more food at nursery than at home and always comes home tired.

I find the staff at Sunflowers Nursery School are amazing in their care of the children. Standards are very high in manners and education.
I feel the meals are the only inadequate aspect of the nursery with the children being fed chocolate and cake far too often. Also, they do state 'home made food' but they use frozen pre prepared too. I also feel the children should never be offered unhealthy juice drinks.
