8.4 Loxley Nursery has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.433)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Loxley 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Loxley Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 2 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 4.87 for Loxley Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 3.563 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Loxley Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.313

  • 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 Loxley Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    2

We chose this nursery because of the free access to outdoor space. My little boy loves to play outside and especially enjoys going out on walks and the Forest Schools activities.

The staff are passionate about what they do and nothing is too much trouble. Although every child has a key worker, I believe that all the staff know and understand my child as an individual. The feedback and communication about my child are excellent.

The nursery provides a wide range of activities and staff are very responsive to the children's interests.

The snacks are varied and it's great that they are included in the hourly rate. It's also good to have the flexibility to choose packed lunch or school dinners (during term time) on any given day.

Staff are all very friendly, always make sure they discuss my daughters day and how she is getting on. It is her first month at nursery and she has settled in very well which was down to the fabulous taster sessions that she went to before starting and the comfortable environment the nursery staff have created. Keep up the good work.
