The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for The Hollies Private Day Nursery, Chorley 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Hollies Private Day Nursery, Chorley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.91 for The Hollies Private Day Nursery, Chorley is calculated as follows: ( (131 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.91

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Hollies Private Day Nursery, Chorley is based on 12 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). 12 Reviews ÷ 10 Target Reached = 1

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

Since my daughter joined The Hollies she has developed many more skills. All the girls are amazing. Always so welcoming and happy to see the children. The menu and food is lovely and varied, this gives her a great taste in food. I would highly recommend the nursery to all family and friends. Give the girls a staff room - not a cabin in the cold!

My daughter attends The Hollies full time and absolutely loves it. The staff are welcoming and friendly and always have time to speak about my daughter's progress, how her day has been and reassure me if I have any concerns. She has made so much progress in all areas, communicating well and every day comes home with a new experience. The nursery keep the children safe and are very conscientious if the child has had an accident. My daughter loves the staff and has made excellent friendships too. I can't recommend The Hollies enough. Thank you.

My daughter has developed massively since she started nursery and could barely stand alone. She has become more content and confident within herself and around other children. She loves her time at Nursery and is always full of smiles. It's a pleasure to see her grow and play with children and staff at Hollies. I would recommend the nursery and have no complaints with standards of care and hygiene.

I am very happy with Hollies, the staff are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble. They have helped my daughter settle in and she loves coming and has made lots of friends. It has really helped bring on her talking and socialising with children. The staff always keep me informed about her sessions and what new things she's trying etc. Would recommend to anyone, it's an amazing nursery with excellent and friendly staff.

The Hollies is an amazing nursery with beautiful surroundings. All the staff and management are fantastic the whole nursery has a warm and friendly feel, they couldn't do any more to make you feel welcome.
My son has been going for the last year and has flourished with the care that he is given, he loves that he goes swimming and that they have animals which he can show his big brother when he comes to pick him up.

The Hollies is an exceptional nursery. It is homely, exciting and most important of all, genuinely caring. The staff respond to the children's needs and interests incredibly well, incorporating them into the daily activities in order to really involve all children equally. The outdoor space is unique and is used very well, becoming an area for learning and exploration as well as fun and play. The menu changes at a sensible rate and provides new ideas for us to try at home too. The Hollies is a home from home with staff who are more like favourite aunties than anything else. It doesn't matter what time of day I have arrived, the children are always happy. I couldn't ask for more than that!

The Hollies Private Day Nursery Chorley is a lovely setting! The staff are warm friendly and experienced. They have nurtured our son's growth, interests and character over the last two and a half years, showing him genuine care and attention. The outdoor facilities are the best we've seen and having animals on site is extra special. Our son is really happy at the nursery which means so are we.
