Reviews

9.4 Holyrood Day Nursery Salford has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.410)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Holyrood Day Nursery Salford 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holyrood Day Nursery Salford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 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 4.777 for Holyrood Day Nursery Salford is calculated as follows: ( (230 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 287 Ratings = 4.777

  • 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 4.633 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holyrood Day Nursery Salford is based on 10 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 15.8 Target = 0.633

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

My child started here in May 2017 and has loved coming every day since. The staff have been able to identify and meet my son's additional needs in every way possible. They are all very welcoming and cheerful and this makes it easier to leave him at nursery. I love that I am able to access his observations and developmental progress from home whenever I wish too. The management team show excellent leadership skills and this is reflected in the staff attitudes within the nursery setting. My son comes home happy and content from nursery every day and this makes it all more worthwhile.

Fantastic settling in period, addressing the needs of my son perfectly. I see my son's progression through his learning journal, which is updated each week with pictures and information.
The staff are kind, caring and so personable.
I know he is in great hands and has a wonderful time. Thank you to all at Holyrood.

Since my baby started nursery, she has become a lot more confident in herself and has developed in all areas. She has formed strong bonds with the carers in her room.
Each day her carers give me her day sheet with everything on that she has eaten and what she has enjoyed playing with. I am very happy with the care she receives.

My daughter has attended Holyrood since September 2016 and I couldn't be more happy with the service I get from the staff team and management. My daughter has come on in leaps and bounds, her development has increased dramatically and she is coming home with new words every week. I get a brilliant daily report and the general care is fantastic. The staff team involve me with everything, down to showing me her development book, to show me where she's up to and any additional help she may need. I only have great opinions of this nursery. My child is well taken care of and I feel happy at work.

Staff are very friendly and supportful. I also have a good relationship with my child's key person - she's like part of the family. I am told by my child's key person how her day has gone from the minute I drop her off to the minute I pick her up. My child is always happy and talks about nursery at home which makes me feel like I am not missing out on her growing up.

Very friendly, supportive and caring nursery. My son loves attending the nursery and I've never had a single concern for his welfare or development. The staff are always keen to get updates from his speech therapy so they can support him with this. In-depth parent evenings and reports are very welcome. A variety of activities are provided and a positive approach to outdoor play.

My daughter has been attending Holyrood Nursery since June 2016. As a first time mother, I was nervous. My daughter settled really well and always gets excited when she sees her nursery. The staff here are excellent and my daughter happily goes to staff and enjoys her time there. The care and dedication the staff have is outstanding and would highly recommend.

Holyrood Day Nursery is a very welcoming place for my son, he's developed and settled really well. When my son was unwell in July, I got a prompt phone call to let me know as well as an update later before I could pick him up. This shows their dedication to the well-being of the kids under their care. My son is very happy in the nursery, enjoys all activities and the nutritional food provided.

My daughter has attended 'Holyrood Day Nursery Salford' for quite some time now and I can honestly say that there has never been any doubt in my mind that she has not been looked after and cared for to the highest standard. The progress my daughter has made whilst attending is amazing and I can't thank all the girls enough. My daughter has made special bonds with numerous members of staff and each and every one of the girls that work there are amazing in every way and I can't thank them enough for the love and care they show.

My son has recently started at Holyrood Day Nursery Salford and I feel the staff have worked incredibly hard to help him settle and to get to know him. All staff members are lovely, both to my son but also to his upset mum! They give me a thorough run down of his day when I collect him, detailing his activities of the day, sleep, food and nappy details. I was also encouraged to phone when we'd had a particularly hard drop off for my own peace of mind.

The management is excellent, with approachable, experienced and flexible senior leaders who are clearly passionate about the job and children.

Our son really enjoys going to nursery and always has lots of good things to say about his time there. He's always tired when we pick him up as he spends all day doing things that keep him interested and entertained. He really likes all the staff there, and they are all extremely helpful and friendly. The management listens to what parents tell them, which is evidenced by the number of changes that have been made recently. These include, a newly designed outdoor area which is fab, different themed rooms i.e construction room, story telling, messy room etc and the children can move freely between the rooms which allow them to really develop their interpersonal skills.
Overall we're delighted that we chose Holyrood and I think our son is too!!

Brilliant nursery, excellent staff. My little boy loves it here. Some times he doesn't even want to come home!! The girls are great with all the children. I love all the updates through the online journal and hearing about my boys day each time I pick him up. I completely trust that he is cared for here - and I'm a very anxious mum! I'd recommend to anyone! They've done lots of improvements lately too. All rooms are fantastic and safe. The meals are brilliant too. He eats better than I do! I can always smell something lovely being cooked as we walk him in! I almost want to ask for a packed lunch!
