Reviews

8.6 Kingswood Day Nursery & Preschool has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.604)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Kingswood Day Nursery & Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kingswood Day Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.521 for Kingswood Day Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (26 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.521

  • 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 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingswood Day Nursery & Preschool is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

Kingswood is superb, my son was there from 6 months old to 2.5yrs, (then we moved to Lincoln for a year) and he has now returned to Kingswood as we moved home to Sheffield. He settled in straight away, loves being there, his vocabulary and social-emotional skills are developing quickly and the staff are superb. I would highly recommend.

My granddaughters attend the nursery and I am very happy with the care provided. The girls are always informing me of what they have been doing and it always sounds fun. The staff are welcoming and polite. I have seen them with the children and they have a lovely way with them. The staff do a grand job - well done!

I am very happy with the nursery. The staff are all lovely and have given my girls lots of cuddles when they were struggling to settle in. They have now settled beautifully and love going to nursery. Thank you for the great job you do.

Our eldest son will shortly be moving on to primary school having attended from the age of 13 months. He'll really miss his key members of staff when he leaves. It's been great to see his personailty grow and be nurtured by staff who genuinely care about his welfare and well-being.

It's a well managed nursery setting too. It'll only be too soon before our 2yr old joins his brother in school and the nursery journey will be complete for our boys!
