Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.826 for Butterflies Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (111 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.826

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Butterflies Day Nursery is based on 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 10 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 Butterflies Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    11

We have used Butterflies nursery from when my boy was 10 months old to 4 and a half.

From not really wanting him to go to nursery, to not wanting him to leave, Butterflies have been fantastic every step of the way. We changed days, times and even added extra days in some weeks to fit round shifts, they were always obliging and helpful.

They stretched and challenge our child to do more and learn through a range of skills and methods.

All of the staff at the nursery are caring, helpful and supportive to myself and our child. They are consistent, we built a relationship with all the staff members, we knew who was who and which room they were stationed in. We liked that there were all different aged staff members, each bringing something different to the nursery. Each day we had a full rundown of what our child had been up to and a diary entry to take home with us.

We recommend Butterflies to everyone! It is fantastic in every way possible and our boy still talks about his time there.

Both of my children have attended Butterflies and I couldn't recommend the nursery highly enough. Both children attended from 8 months through to starting school and they both thrived as a result. All the age-related rooms are well equipped and all the staff are very friendly, approachable and most importantly care for the children as if they were their own. The outdoor space is really good too. I received regular feedback as to my child's progress through development folders with lots of lovely photos showing what my child gets up to while I'm not there, plus parents evenings and day to day feedback. I never had any issues and would highly recommend the nursery to anyone.

My little boy has been going to Butterflies Nursery since he was 10 months old and has come on leaps and bounds since that point. He has now been in three rooms since he started and all three rooms have been attentive to his needs and made him feel welcome and comfortable. The parents evenings are really lovely to come to and every key worker has really paid attention to his next steps or his development along the way. The staff are always so polite and will do above and beyond what is required of them. My little boy loves going to Nursery - sometimes I go to pick him up can't even get him out of the door!

Butterflies Day Nursery is an outstanding nursery. The staff are professional, helpful and caring. The activities that they do are fun and the preschool room helps prepare the children for school. I have been using the nursery for a total of 6/7 years with two children and I have never had any issues. I completely trust this nursery with every aspect of childcare.

All three of my children have attended Butterflies Day Nursery and have all thrived as a result of the care and attention they received whilst there.
The children are free to follow their own interests and make as much mess as they like which I think is very important at a young age!
I was particularly impressed with the high expectations of staff when my children were under 3... the children are encouraged to feed themselves, dress themselves and potty trained as soon as possible.
The nursery makes use of the college for sports and performances which is fantastic and also offers educational visits around the local area.
Assessments are thorough and prove just how well the staff know and care about the children.
The nursery also provides training opportunities for parents, fun days and social events.
I would like to see the college inject more money into the setting and for the older children to be challenged as much as the younger ones.

I go out of my way practically every day to bring my children to this nursery. My twin boys attended from being babies and then came back as three-year-olds after a year in a different nursery. All of the staff make all the children feel like a part of a big extended family and I am absolutely confident when I drop my children off that they are not only receiving the best care but that they feel loved and accepted. My children feel more welcome and comfortable in the smaller creche style environment and it's reflected in their new friendships and how much they enjoy going. The student staff that come from the neighbouring college are as great as the other staff, and the children get to play in the college sports hall and went round to the University block during Halloween which I absolutely love. I couldn't recommend it enough and I will be sad to see them leave come September when they start school!

Butterflies is an excellent nursery. Both of my children have attended since they were 9 months old and I can not recommend them enough.
The staff are friendly and always take amazing care of my boys. My children have developed through the support and nurture of the nursery, and I would fully recommend to others.

My son has been attending this nursery since 2016 and he is now 2 years old. The staff are fantastic with my son, not only by making sure he is looked after and well cared for, but making sure his dietary requirements are met and that there are lots of opportunities for him to learn through play. The staff are always there to offer advice and support when needed, and I know that my son loves attending the nursery whilst I'm working.

Excellent day nursery. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that care and teach the children in a fun and playful way they enjoy. Excellent communication between nursery and home and the food is brilliant, varied and well thought out menus. Able to successfully meet my child's additional needs (visual impairment) and encourage his independence safely.
Definitely, recommend this nursery.

I have used Butterflies Nursery since I started college in September. My daughter is in the bumble bee room, when she first started I was so scared of leaving her with anyone. She was 12 months old when she started the nursery, she was/is happy for me to ring them and see how she is getting on, also pop in and watch her through the windows which is fab for me, great people, just pop in and watch her play. Lovely environment, the staff are friendly and great with the kids. My daughter's development and confidence has come on leaps and bounds since she has been in the nursery, and she looks forward to going. She is almost two now and my course is almost at an end. Every morning she runs into nursery happy and excited, sometimes she won't even say goodbye as she's too busy playing! Will be a shame to change her nursery but my next course is an hour away from Butterflies, so will have to choose another nursery for ease. Keep up the good work, staff! Would recommend this nursery.

My child has attended Butterflies from 10 weeks old, the staff are amazing, attentive, friendly and extremely kind. The facilities are superb and the food is excellent, they have supported me through cows milk protein allergy, and my child's menu is specific to meet his need's.
This nursery, in my opinion, is outstanding.
