  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.817 for Buttons & Bows Private Day Nursery, Atherton is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.817

  • 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 4.577 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buttons & Bows Private Day Nursery, Atherton is based on 6 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.577

I am very happy with the nursery. The staff have been helpful and built lovely relationships with my little boy.
He enjoys going and is developing learning skills for his age range. I was impressed with his transitions between rooms to get him used to change and staff. This gradual approach helped him to settle. I intend to send my newborn there when I return to work.

My daughter has been at the nursery for 6 months now and she loves it! There is a good mix of staff and lots of activities to take part in. She loves her key worker who gives us regular feedback on my daughter's progress. She really enjoys 'stretch and grow' and the messy table, The children have access to an outside play area which is great for them to use up some energy. Overall, I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

My son started at Buttons & Bows in summer 2016, after a bad experience with his previous nursery. The staff here have been amazing and really put my mind at rest about leaving my child in their care. They do lots of different activities to stimulate the children and my son is always playing happily when I go to pick him up. He is happy to see the staff each time he goes and has made a great bond with a few. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

My son previously attended another nursery from 4 months old. He started at Buttons and Bows and 19 months. The transition was very easy and the manager was fantastic and adhered to all my requests during the settling in - nothing was too much trouble. My son attends full time and is currently 2 months into potty training. Staff have been consistent with him and worked well with me. Also offering advice when I have been at breaking point with it. I have seen no staff turnover since I started. My son and I like the consistency of staff, which was an issue in the previous nursery. Highly recommended! Well done!

My daughter is doing really well at her nursery and loves to go. She goes swimming and she has just completed her 20m. She loves stretch and grow. All the staff that work with her are really good. I would recommend.

Buttons and Bows is a very welcoming and friendly place to be. My child settled in straight away and loves going to this nursery. The staff are very hands on with the children and provided great activities and assistance for the children. They have recently refurbished and changed the menu and this didn't seem to affect the children as they made it as easy as possible. My child also loves the new food menu! I'm pleased we chose this nursery as my child has learned so much and is starting to grow and learn life's lessons as I would like her to. The staff do a great job and I think we will all be sad when it's time for our child to leave and go on to school.
