The Review Score of 4.8 (maximum of 10) for Head Start Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Head Start Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.786 for Head Start Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.786

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Head Start Day Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0

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

My two children love attending nursery. My eldest really looks forward to her session, and loves telling us about it afterwards. My youngest isn't talking yet, but always goes willingly and seems very happy.

Good nursery offering a high standard of care and a strong emphasis on education and activity. Our children got involved in a wide range of fun arts and crafts and loved the outdoor play space. We feel it offers a solid preparation for starting school.

The staff are always welcoming, pleased to see my child. They always have time to tell me how my child has been throughout the day regardless of business. They are really fantastic with my child who was very unsure of going into nursery to start with. Highly recommended.

Head Start is amazing! my two children are so happy and settled there. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and have been great with my son's fussy eating and on going toilet training. I am so glad we chose Head Start for out children and can't praise them highly enough.

This is the beginning of my daughter's last year at Head Start. She has been at this nursery full time since she was six months old. The building is lovely and traditional and covered in colourful seasonal displays of the children's work and photographs of what they have been getting up to. They get to play out in the large enclosed garden whenever possible which is a great facility to have as well as play with indoor toys, books and iPads. I cannot praise the staff here enough for their commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism; My daughter learns new things every day and comes home full of tales about things she has done at nursery that she has loved (reading, cooking, sports, arts and crafts, music but most importantly playing!). The thing we like best (and what made us choose this nursery in the first place!) is that the staff really care and take the time to get to know the children (and not just the ones in their immediate care but all the kids) my daughter is looked after by people who have known her since she was a baby and who are constant positive figures in her life. The team seem to genuinely love kids and whilst they will quickly address any disciplinary issues they are also equally as quick to praise a child who has done well and give affection to a child who is upset. I have recommended Head Start to many local parents and my daughter has made some great friends here. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to any parent looking for a home away from home atmosphere where their child is cared for as an individual.

Both of my children have attended this nursery and have always been very happy here. The staff are very friendly and supportive and provide a stimulating learning environment for the children. The outside area is great for the children to explore and learn within. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

I have had my 1st Child with the nursery since 2012 and have continued to have my 3rd child in the nursery (inclusive of my 2nd who is currently still at the nursery) and very happy with many aspects and the staff as well as my children's developments. Where there have been areas of development this has been highlighted and managed through ourselves and the nursery.
