The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Horizon 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Horizon 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 4.917 for Horizon Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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 3.06 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Horizon Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.060
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Kat S (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 5 September 2017. Relates to September 2017.
My son has been attending Horizon Nursery for the last year and a half. I was new to the area due to the relocation of my husband's job. My son has always gone into the nursery with a big happy smile and has always come out with a big happy smile. The staff are so friendly and approachable and the children really feel at ease with all the staff. I have to say Horizon Nursery is a very connected and supportive nursery and the children are at the heart of everything they do. But the staff and management have an open door policy for parents and are very open to feedback and there to support you. They are extremely accommodating if something happens to arise and you need to get your child in on an extra day. I am so sad to see my son leave this beautiful place but they have all worked to bring the best out of him and prepare him for his new chapter in his life. Thank you to all the staff at horizon without a doubt the best nursery in Barnsley.
