  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunshine Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.702 for Sunshine Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.702

  • 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 4.203 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunshine Day Nursery is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 29.6 positive Reviews (148 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 29.6 Target = 0.203

  • 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 Sunshine Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My little boy has been attending this nursery since the age of 8 months, he is now 2 and a half years old. He has been looked after extremely well since he started in the baby room and in the current room he is in. He thrives and learning a lot through play and all the activities there. We are updated regularly on his progress when we pick him up and also during parents evening. The staff are very caring and understand my child's needs/ likes/ dislikes. Any move to the next room for the older age group is done in a very sensitive manner and well planned. I highly recommend this nursery!

This nursery offers an excellent standard of care to its children. I have sent both of my children here from the age of 9 months. The snacks and activities are well thought out and the staff are extremely caring and easy to approach. My eldest was very sad to leave (to start school) because of the attachments she had formed in her time at Sunshine.
The children seem to learn effortlessly through play and the staff make it fun. Both my children have been treat as individuals and I have had nothing but praise for this nursery.
I would not think twice about recommending Sunshine as a starting point for any child to start their little journeys.

Sunshine Day Nursery offers a superb standard of care and education. I have sent both my girls there both from an early age and they have loved it and still love it. Everything is right from the food and snacks serviced to the activities they do.
The staff are all loving and approachable and genuinely care about the kids.
The holiday club from the older kids is also brilliant, my eldest loves it.
A wonderful nursery, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

Both my children have attended this nursery from the age of one, my eldest attended until he started school and youngest is aged 4 and will be there until she starts school too. I have always been very happy with the care that the children have received. The staff are warm and caring and seem genuinely interested in the children. I would wholeheartedly recommend the nursery.
