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 4.794 for Fisherfield Childcare (Redvales Nursery) is calculated as follows: ( (145 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.794

  • 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 Fisherfield Childcare (Redvales Nursery) is based on 15 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 10.2 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.

This nursery and the team go above and beyond to cater for our grandchild's needs. Each child is an individual. The team teach, care for and encourage. We feel very welcomed and the team always make time. We are not from the area and travel up to an hour to get there, this shows just how pleased we are with the care and the progress that our grandchild makes.

Fisherfield managers and staff are both caring and accommodating.
I feel my child is cared for to a standard that I would care for him myself. My partner and I are raising our son to be kind and empathetic and this is what I get from his key workers and the nursery manager consistently. As my partner works away, I am regularly stuck for childcare and the nursery is always happy to remain flexible and really has the parent and child in mind always. The food provided is of a high standard and freshly cooked on site to provide variety and balance.

The nursery is always immaculately clean and the children are kept safe, warm and clean while still being allowed to explore and learn through play. The nursery also go above and beyond throwing lovely seasonal and inclusive parties and organising events that enrich my son's experience. Thank you to you all, you really are amazing.

My son has been at this nursery since September 2016. As a SEN child the staff have been very helpful and understanding and have helped me with his needs. I can not thank them enough for their help and support.

Our two-year-old child came to this nursery after his previous nursery had said they could no longer cope with his behaviour/additional needs. From the start, this nurseries attitude to our child's difficulties was very different to what we had experienced previously and they dealt with the incidents in a calm and practical manner. They quickly got to understand our child and identify strategies that really helped him and he is a much calmer and happier child since attending the nursery. The nursery is clean and well equipped with an excellent outdoor space that the child can access most of the time. The staff are all professional and friendly and treat the children with kindness and patience, plus the feedback about our child's day is very good with lots of anecdotes about what he has been doing.

This is a very good nursery with experienced staff. My daughter has been attending the nursery since she was six months old and she is now 2 years, she enjoys it very much. Since coming here she has learnt a lot of new things and I am very pleased about that.

Since my child has started at nursery she has progressed so much. I was concerned with her speech before she started at nursery but her talking and social skills have come on so much! She looks forward to coming to nursery and there are no issues with dropping her off there.

My son started nursery at 8 months and he's enjoyed it since! The staff are caring, friendly and professional at all times. At drop off and pick up time the atmosphere is lovely, very relaxed and calm. My son is looked after well and all his needs are met.
The activities set out are always fantastic it shows a great deal of planning next steps and meeting targets for each child. I'm very happy.

My son has attended this nursery for almost three years now. Initially, like many children, he would get upset upon arrival. This gave me doubts about the nursery, however, I couldn't be happier that we kept him here! Now he is older it is clear he loves it, he has a great time and gets the opportunity to experience many things with this nursery. The staff have been supportive all the way! I can't thank them enough!

Both my children have been to this nursery. The care and education are outstanding.

All the staff are amazing and you can see the children all care for the staff the way the staff care about them.

I feel that I can talk easily to the staff and any minor issues with my child are sorted. I have a very good rapport with the staff - some who I have known a long time, with having 2 children go there.

I would highly recommend the nursery as the children's welfare is number 1 priority.

The nursery is very good and my child has been going there since she was 11 months. My 2-year-old enjoys being in the nursery. She has learnt a lot and is very enthusiastic about going to nursery. She loves the food and the play facilities, especially the outdoor area. She has grasped the routine and is very keen to learn more. Her speech has come on so much as she is currently being toilet trained.

This nursery is a place where both of my children have had a great start to their education. The care and attention that the staff provide to each individual child is clearly visible and the relationships that the staff establish with the children in their care are exemplary. The environment is always highly stimulating and child-led, with the childrens' work being used and their comments reflected. There is a real sense of community and children are given so many opportunities to learn about the diverse world in which they live. Staff are always happy to talk about the children’s learning and the digital learning journey app that is used has been a great way to see exactly what my child has been up to. Fisherfield has been such a great place to send my children and that is all down to the dedication of the manager and her staff, who all have the children at the centre of all they do. The community events that are put on throughout the year are a great opportunity to meet others.
