Reviews

8.6 The Hillside Nursery has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.550)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for The Hillside 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Hillside Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.808 for The Hillside Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.808

  • 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 3.742 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Hillside Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.242

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

My daughter attends Hillside Nursery and has since May. The staff on the older side are extremely approachable and very professional. When I leave her, she is very happy to be staying at the nursery and when I go to pick her up she doesn't want to leave.
The tapestry app is a good idea as I can see her progress throughout being at Hillside.
Every time I have been to collect my child from the younger side the staff have always been doing activities with my daughter and the other children.
Overall I think I have chosen the best nursery for my daughter.

I have been very impressed by this setting and I am so happy that we decided to move my stepdaughter here. She loves attending the nursery and always has lots of stories to tell when we collect her. The staff are very accommodating and we feel very comfortable leaving our daughter in their care. The staff are very approachable and the manager has been extremely helpful and brings a great quality to the nursery, another of her carers is fantastic, would highly recommend.

I am extremely proud that my little girl attends The Hillside Nursery. Since she started, her confidence has increased massively, and her speech and language has excelled. She is always excited to attend and has formed positive relationships with the other children and staff. As a parent, I am also treated with the highest respect and always feel welcomed by all of the staff, who are all very friendly and put me at ease when my little girl first started.

I would like to thank everyone at the nursery for being with my son all year long.
I'm happy as my son is learning new things and I'm happy with everyone at the nursery.
But I have a concern about the toilets, I think they don't take care about that.
Often when I drop off or collect my son at the nursery and take him to the toilet I have found one or two toilets are dirty.
So I wonder if the kids are to helping themselves to the toilet?
Thanks

The staff at the Nursery work hard to ensure that all the children receive the care and attention they need. My youngest daughter has just started at the Nursery and the staff have done everything they can to make her feel welcome. My oldest attends their holiday club and is always excited to attend, particularly when trips are organised. I would highly recommend this Nursery.
