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 4.844 for Butterflies Private Day Nursery, Prenton is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.844

  • 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 4.7 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Butterflies Private Day Nursery, Prenton is based on 7 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). 7 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.700

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

Our daughter began attending when she was 13 months old. The nursery staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are happy to help whenever possible. Our daughter has thrived in her small group of babies but is becoming much more confident as they are mixed with the pre school group on a regular basis.
Her development has come on leaps and bounds and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of nursery.

My younger child attends Butterflies and my older son attended from 2013-2015. The staff have remained the same since we first used it, which is really important to me. There are lots of imaginative activities and the staff are enthusiastic. I like the small size of the nursery, it feels more like using a childminder but with the benefits of holiday cover. They have always been very flexible and I've been able to change days when my working patterns change. Super-duper!

Lovely nursery with nice and friendly staff. My daughter enjoys her time spent here and I can tell that she's learning new things every day. The nursery has got a beautiful space outdoors and they make the most of it which is great.

Our 3-year-old son has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Butterflies, Prenton. The staff have been great with him and he talks very fondly of them, his 'classmates' and his meals which have been of a very high quality. They have worked hard with him and he's done lots of stuff but above all, he goes in happy and comes home happy and that is the main basis of my recommendation. He is just about to leave to go into FS1 but he will miss Butterflies and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to other parents.

My child has attended for over 3 years. He loves going to nursery. The nursery staff have been consistent. Meals are made in the nursery by the chef. The nursery has a fab website and excellent outdoor facilities for play. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.
