Reviews

8.3 Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.332)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 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 4.903 for Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.903

  • 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 3.429 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.179

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

My child has attended Cliff House Nursery & Pre-School for just under 1 year. My child loves all the staff members and enjoys going to nursery. The staff at the nursery are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. The staff will tell me exactly what my child has done throughout the day and also documents my child's achievements. The nursery is always clean and tidy. The garden at the back of the nursery is huge - it even has a little allotment that the children help to keep. The nursery is flexible around parents, which I know other nurseries in the area are not. Myself, and my husband are 100% happy with Cliff House.

My daughter loves going to Cliff House Nursery and has come on in leaps and bounds. She talks about her key workers all the time and the staff are all really friendly. I love the parent portal that I can view when I like which shows what she has been doing and I can even put things on to share with the nursery too. My daughter is definitely excelling in many areas since going to nursery here.

Cliff House is an outstanding nursery. Our daughter has been going since she was 6 months old and is now 2 years old. She loves going to learn and play with her friends. She has grown into a bright, clever, happy little person and we can't thank the staff enough for all their time and help. We would and have 100% recommended Cliff House to our friends.

I was recommended to Cliff House by a close friend. My daughter has been in the toddler room and baby room. I have never had a problem with my daughter's care and I have found the staff really friendly and reliable.

I removed my daughter from a different nursery a year ago and I decided to bring her to Cliff House Nursery. Since she has been at this nursery she has grown so much and gained lots of confidence. My daughter is now in preschool which she loves and enjoys thoroughly.
