Stonehouse Childcare has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.296)
The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Stonehouse Childcare is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Stonehouse Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 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 4.25 for Stonehouse Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (4 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.25
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:
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.
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.
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 3.046 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Stonehouse Childcare is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 21.8 positive Reviews (109 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 21.8 Target = 0.046

Stonehouse nursery is a very good place to put your child in.
My son started just before he was 2 years old. I would recommend it to any parent that is looking for a safe childcare service.
My son has been shown lots of things and staff helped in every way they could to promote health and well being in education and activities.
My son loved it so much that even at weekends he was asking to go in.
When I asked what he loves the most, he said 'Mum I love the food!'. Typical boy that always wants to munch!
He has learnt so much in his time there, he learnt how to become his own individual character, sharing toys and be involved in groups of activities.
Coming home with pictures and writing that he practises made us feel proud and happy. He always had a smile on his face going, chasing him to say goodbye, and chasing him to pick him up when he never wanted to go home especially in the playground. He loved the freedom and he made lots of friends that will stay in touch with.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are very proud of our outdoor facilities especially our maze area and large field. We are really pleased that your son enjoyed the food here and we will certainly miss him. We hope he really enjoys his next adventure, but please keep in contact as we love to hear what the children are getting up to.
