  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppy & Jacks Nursery Astley Bridge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.839 for Poppy & Jacks Nursery Astley Bridge is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.839

  • 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 Poppy & Jacks Nursery Astley Bridge is based on 14 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 9.8 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.

Really happy with the nursery and all the nursery staff. My son is clearly prospering and really enjoying his time in the nursery.
The only thing I would say is that the facilities need a bit of a spruce up (toilets and some little painting jobs etc).
Thank you.

The staff are very pleasant and always happy to help. There is definitely room for improvement in terms of keeping on top of nappy changing. Overall happy with the nursery. Also room for improvement on the lack of update and information on the App. I preferred how much detail was given when it was email based.

I had to move my daughter from another nursery because I was extremely unhappy with the level of care she was getting and she was not liking it. From the moment she started at Poppy & Jacks, she has been really happy. The staff are excellent with years of experience. She always comes home clean and well fed!
