The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Holyrood Day Nursery Altrincham is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holyrood Day Nursery Altrincham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 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 4.685 for Holyrood Day Nursery Altrincham is calculated as follows: ( (153 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.685

  • 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 4.9 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holyrood Day Nursery Altrincham is based on 9 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 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.900

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

My son has been with Holyrood Altrincham for nearly two years and we have seen him grow into a sociable little boy with strong friendships with other children and excellent relationships with the nursery nurses and support staff there.
The management and safeguarding have improved and we would be more than happy to recommend Holyrood to anyone wanting a smaller, personal experience for their child.

Love the staff they are very helpful and understanding of mine and my daughter's needs and a very high level of qualification with the staff makes me feel as if my daughter will be well cared for.

The nursery is clean and very inviting for children and adults can feel that their child is well cared for.

Since my little girl moved nurseries she has come on leaps and bounds with her speech, communication, understanding of instructions and has become a real little lady. I can't thank the staff enough for being so accommodating, reassuring and welcoming. Best decision I made moving my daughter to Holyrood.

Holyrood is a lovely nursery. Both of my boys attend. They always look forward to going in in a morning and are never in a rush to leave. Lovely staff and great management. There is a new chef who is great. Lovely homemade food. Great communication. I feel our children are in very safe hands. Very competitive nursery rates compared to other local nurseries. Would definitely recommend Holyrood. The manager and deputy manager have a great team!

He has a great bond with all the staff members and I can see such a massive change in his progress since the start! Thank you Holyrood Altrincham.

This nursery is a home from home for my toddler. He always has a good day and is encouraged to take part in activities which he will enjoy but will also challenge him. There always seems to be new ideas which are brought to the table and parents can input into the quarterly meetings.
The children are also encouraged to talk about what they do outside of nursery so this can continue while they are in nursery.
The outside space is fantastic. It's secluded but big enough for the children to have some proper outdoor play time.
The staff are also fantastic, caring and attentive.

The staff and nursery have provided a second family setting for my little boy since the age of 6 months. He is a happy, sociable, funny little man and the nursery have played a key part in who he is starting to become. I would definitely recommend holyrood, gaskell road to anyone looking for a nursery that wants the balance of their little one developing but also wants to know a cuddle is there when required or not! - a family / close team!!

This is a lovely day nursery. Both of my babies have been or are currently attending and I feel that my attending child is well looked after and comes home happy every day. He gets excited about going too and enjoys his time there. The facilities have recently improved and they have invested money in the outdoor areas which is a big plus.

Holyrood, Altrincham is a lovely nursery. It is very much home from home. The staff are caring and nurturing. Both of my boys are at Holyrood and clearly enjoy their time at nursery. They have a lovely circle of friends. There have been some changes made recently as the nursery has a new manager but these have simply further complimented a lovely nursery. The recent changes have been very positive.
