Reviews

9 Bluebell Lodge Nursery has a Review Score of 9 (9.002)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Bluebell Lodge Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bluebell Lodge Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.875 for Bluebell Lodge Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 4.127 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bluebell Lodge Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.377

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

Reviewer Connection to Bluebell Lodge Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has attended the setting since she was eight months old (almost three now), leaving your child is such a hard thing to do as a parent. The staff here couldn't have put my mind at ease anymore. My child even asks for the staff when not in nursery! They really do a great job looking after her and making her feel so safe and secure it's unbelievable. Nothing is too much to ask of them, from following her dietary needs, routine, behaviour, they have helped her grow into the confident, intelligent, funny little girl she is now. I love being able to see what she has been doing and all the fun activities she gets up to at nursery via their new app and it shows me how/where her development is at and what I can do support it! Can't thank the women and men here enough it really is a great nursery and definitely would recommend to friends.

As a parent, I have been very happy with this nursery. My Son has progressed well in the care of Bluebell Lodge since going at 9 months old and he continues to be happy there. His well-being has always been a priority to all of the staff who have cared for him and the activities and opportunities he has at the nursery have encouraged his development. I am always well informed and involved as a parent and would recommend the nursery to others.

My son has been at Bluebell Lodge Nursery since he was about four months old, and I have never had a problem with them. The nursery and all the staff within are wonderful and always put 100% into looking after my son and all the other children there. He has progressed so much and I always get comments on how good his speech is at 18 months old and I believe this is due to the nursery and the work they do with him. He never fails to amaze me, he knows things I've not taught him such as what the green man is and what it does on traffic lights. I wouldn't change his nursery even if somebody paid me.

My son has been attending this nursery for nearly a year. We had looked around a few and spoke to other parents and the majority recommended Bluebell Lodge. I liked the fact you didn’t have to book an appointment to look round it meant we could see the nursery how it usually is.
On our visit, we met the lovely manager who was very welcoming and friendly and answered the many questions we had! We looked around the rooms relevant to our son. The staff and the children both looked happy and enthusiastic and made us feel welcome. We got a very homely feel from Bluebell Lodge and decided that was the Nursery for us!

Since starting nursery all of the staff have been fantastic with him they’ve brought him on in his development and speech. My son does a lot of activities outside with nursery that I love, he’s been to a variety of places including the park and the sea life centre. My child loves this nursery and all of the people who care for him whilst he is there he never wants to come home.
