The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for St Catherines Independent 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Catherines Independent Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.792 for St Catherines Independent Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Catherines Independent Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

  • 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 St Catherines Independent Nursery

  • Mother of Child

Honestly, I am really pleased to leave this review as two my sons attended this nursery in different years. The most important factor for me as a mum is that the children really matter there. The nursery staff are brilliant, kids are really well looked after, no child is left without attention.
The nursery is equipped with toys and books, kids enjoy singing and dancing, or just listening to stories, the nursery ladies always read to them.

Since joining St. Catherine's Nursery my son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident, balanced and looks forward to going to nursery every day. The nursery floor is constantly cleaned, the recreation area is in a very good clean state, always supplied with hygiene products. The nursery has its own well equipped safe play area. With very affordable prices and all the facts above nursery is good value for money. Oh, there are fish tank and guinea pigs at nursery as well! So kids can watch little animals alive.

If I forgot about something, name it and add Five stars to it.

Helen Brockliss, Nursery Manager at St Catherines Independent Nursery responded to this review on 13 Jan 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind words! I am very happy that you are pleased with our service.

My child was attending this nursery, needless to say I was looking around for ages for an appropriate nursery which would tick ALL my boxes, including clean facilities, staff's personal appearance, food quality and obviously level of education for pre-preschoolers. The nursery is very big inside. ALL conditions for children being happy, including large outdoor playground, (plus some pets as well)
Manager and staff are brilliant and polite. Everything there is nice and tidy, I'd recommend this nursery 10 out of 10.
It is pity that kids are growing and forced to leave this great place
