Reviews

8.3 Heron Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.318)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Heron Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Heron Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 5 for Heron Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.318 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Heron Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 29.6 positive Reviews (148 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 29.6 Target = 0.068

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

Our son has been attending Heron Day Nursery since he was six months old and has loved it since day one. He has been going since January and I have never had any concerns or worries. He has learnt so much I can't thank the staff enough. The whole team are fab.

A fantastic nursery that both my children have attended, one is still there. They help children with learning, with the added touch of care and compassion. I have rarely had problems with the nursery, but any issues are dealt with quickly and respectfully. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough and will be sad when my youngest leaves.
