  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 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 4.874 for Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton is calculated as follows: ( (493 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 562 Ratings = 4.874

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.625

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

All the staff at Holyrood are fantastic, our daughter is so excited to go in and see them all in the morning. She has been at the nursery for 4 months now and we're so proud of how much she's developing and that's all down to Holyrood Nursery. We wouldn't dream of taking her anywhere else, can't recommend them enough!

My daughter has been attending Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton since November 2016 (age 1 year 6 months). She had previously been to a different nursery since 9 months old but changed due to moving house. She settled into Holyrood very quickly and it feels as though she has always been there. She only attends one full day a week but she has come on so much and has learnt so much. She loves going every week and never wants to come home! My son (aged 9 months) started at Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton last month and he is settling in very well :)

My daughter has attended Holyrood Castleton since February 2017. She adores all of the staff and enjoys all of the fun activities that are set out each day. She had developed very well since attending the nursery physically and socially. Seeing her happy and smiley as she goes to play with her friends in the setting is an absolute dream and I am confident in leaving her in the care of the lovely ladies that care for her on the days she attends. Thank you, girls, for making me, my daughter and her daddy very happy x

My daughter has been at the nursery for almost a year and I am so happy that I chose Holyrood Castleton for her. My daughter has come on so much since attending the nursery and loves going during the week. You can really see that the time she spends at the nursery is helping her become the confident little girl she is turning out to be.

The staff are fantastic with her and the other children and the nursery is a great environment. I would highly recommend Holyrood Castleton to anyone who is thinking about sending their child there. I can't thank them enough for the work they do and the time they spend with my daughter.

I have nothing but positive comments of Holyrood Castleton. My son has been going there since the age of 9 months and has developed immensely both physically and socially. I would recommend them to everyone and wouldn’t take him anywhere else. The staff are fantastic and look after my son so well, he loves his key worker! Going back to work and leaving your child is hard but they have made it as painless as possible and always keep us updated as to what he has been up to each day. A heartfelt thank you to all at Holyrood Castleton.

Couldn't wish for a better place for my daughter to go to. I have had all 3 of my children go to the same place. We live out of Rochdale but wouldn't think of taking my daughter to another nursery.

I use the nursery twice a week as part of our daughter's childcare. We also use a childminder due to shift pattern work.
All staff at the nursery are fantastic with our daughter and know her on a personal level. Our daughter learns lots at nursery and really enjoys learning, creating, playing, developing and making friends continuously. Thanks to all the staff!

Holyrood Day Nursery is great. My child has been coming here since he was 8 months and I am very happy with the care provided over the last 2 1/2 years. My child has developed into a confident and happy person. He has good numeracy skills and great social interaction. Nursery lets him express himself confidently and well.

My grandson started Holyrood Day Nursery in November 2014- like any parent I was initially apprehensive leaving him, I had nothing to worry about. The staff were and still are brilliant. My grandson looks forward to going every day, he loves it! They eat a varied healthy diet and the activity structure is well balanced with learning and play. I looked at a few nurseries locally but am happy I chose the right one in Holyrood Day Nursery. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Holyrood has been a great nursery for my children. The staff are great when anything happens and will ring you when needed straight away. The nursery is great value for money as they provide everything, including nappies and wipes. My children love coming to nursery and always talk about what they have done there. They are also happy to go to the staff in the morning and are comforted when needed.

Everyone has always been very pleasant and easy to talk to. My child's key person has always had time to listen to any issues and supported any outcomes. The nursery manager is personable and easy to talk to which in my opinion is very important. The key person and supervisor in pre-school really enable the children to be prepared for Big School.

I have been using this nursery for 8 years now. They have been great with all my children. The nursery is very well managed. Staff are great. There is always lots going on for the children i.e. activities and I am kept up to date with my child's observations also everything is filled so I can see my child's progress which is great. My child will be starting school next year so will be quite sad to not be using the nursery anymore after all these years!

My son has been attending Holyrood Castleton since he was 8 months old. He has therefore spent time in all rooms covering all age groups. He is now in his last year, preschool. My son from day one has been content and very happy coming to nursery. This, in turn, has helped myself and husband to drop him off in the morning confident he will enjoy his day ahead. The staff are very approachable and keep you informed as much as possible. The nursery has definitely put my son in good stead for his new start next year at school.

The nursery is everything we, as parents, could wish for great care and management. The food I have heard from my daughter is very good and healthy. I also think the care and education of the nursery staff are fantastic. My daughter really enjoys attending and we have no concerns. Lastly, she has come on leaps and bounds in confidence which is partly down to the nursery. Overall the nursery is really clean, tidy and lots of fun things and toys for development.

Enjoyed coming to parents evening tonight. I am very appreciative of the hard work staff at the nursery put in to ensure children here are happy and developing well. My daughter is very happy here. I was impressed this evening by how knowledgeable nursery staff were in relation to the transition process to primary school. Emails are always responded to promptly by managers. Parental involvement is very good.

Fantastic nursery! We have been using their care for 6 years now. Our daughter started at the age of 10 months old, straight through to pre-school, then onto our local primary school. She absolutely loved her journey from start to finish. The staff are truly amazing. Our son now attends which was perfect. We knew the staff already and he settled in perfectly. He will definitely follow in his sister's footsteps and also leave this nursery to start school in a few more years.
You're all brilliant, caring and loving staff who have made and do everything to make my children happy to be there.
I would and have recommended Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton to many parents.
I have never in 6 years had any issues concerning our children. My daughter is so intelligent and I believe Holyrood Day Nursery Castleton took part in her progressive achievements and will also do with our son.

Fantastic nursery. The development in my little boy is immense since joining the nursery at 9 months. He is now 30 months old and thriving. He asks to go at the weekend!! The staff have a lot of time to go through the achievements of the day spent in the nursery and we get told all the details about food, sleep and toilet time.
I have already recommended this nursery to others and they too love it.

The other thing I believe is a stand out plus is the food. The chef provides a great balance of foods and includes things that my little boy wouldn't normally try at home but at nursery he eats everything. It's a great way for me to know he is getting all the best foods in his diet.
