Reviews

7 General Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7 (7.028)

The Review Score of 7 (maximum of 10) for General Day 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for General Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.767 for General Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.767

  • 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 2.261 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for General Day Nursery is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.521 , then divided by 2 = 0.261

  • 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 attended General Day Nursery for the past 3 years and he has come on in leaps and bounds since he started. His confidence has grown incredibly and he has learnt so much. The staff are amazing with the children and extremely helpful in all areas, they truly care about the children. They have helped my son a lot and go above and beyond their duties.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Both my sons have come here I can't rate them enough, they have helped me so much with my eldest son who is autistic and ADHD and are helping me with my younger son now who has problems. They are amazing, all of them, my daughter will be going here as well. Not for the sake of needing to as I work lates and my partner works earlys, but because I want her to. The day nursery have brought them out of themselves so much and am so thankful.

My child has been there from 10 months old and worked his way from Baby room up to Pre-School and has loved his learning journey.
The staff there are like one big family and all take time to get to know your child and you as a parent which ensures a strong relationship is formed.
If there ever is an issue Management there have plenty of time to listen to you and go out of their way to help resolve it.

My child has been there since a baby. The staff have been excellent with him all the way through, to helping him with potty training to supporting him with his fussy eating. He loves coming to nursery and always runs to give the staff cuddles.

My little boy has attended General Day Nursery since he turned 10 months old he is currently 26 months old and in the Otters room. He has complex allergies. General Day nursery have always been supportive and ensure that he is receiving a well balanced diet and his needs are met. All of the staff ensure that he's got the correct food and things to control his allergies. My son has also always had a good bond with all the staff within the setting and I find them to be helpful and outgoing. I would certainly recommend this nursery to friends family and others seeking child care.

This nursery provided so much support for me when I was going through a tough transition of going back to work full time. I had previously had a bad experience at another nursery and was assured and comforted by the manager and nursery staff here. The care and time they put into my little girl and us as a family is outstanding... My little girl has flourished in all aspects and loves going to the nursery. I couldn't be happier.
