  • 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 4.514 for Sunshine Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.514

  • 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 4.208 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 28.8 positive Reviews (144 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 28.8 Target = 0.208

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

My 2nd child is presently in this nursery. He loves going and is always well looked after and enjoys all the activities they do. My eldest attended from 10 months to school. The nursery set him up ready to start his new adventure. He too loved going and still has fond memories of being there.

Wonderful! Our little boy has been here for 3 years and has great friends, is supremely happy, loves the staff who are really attentive and engaged, caring and careful. He enjoys the many activities, experiments and learning opportunities (music, language, culture), cannot praise Sunshine Day enough it's great. They also teach good manners, kindness and respect and the rooms are happy busy places. Thank you.

Both of my daughters have used Sunshine Day Nursery and we can't recommend them enough. The staff in each of the rooms give so much love, care and attention to the children. They have great learning resources which are fun and engaging and they have both skipped into nursery loving their days. They have lots of outdoor time in the playground and the food is well balanced and healthy.

My daughter has attended this nursery for 2 years and we are really happy with our experience. The initial settling in period at 13 months old worked well and the staff worked hard to include her routine e.g. timings and number of naps into the nursery day. Staff are caring and full of energy - they pick up on a child's interests and quickly earn their trust e.g. when a child is being introduced into the next classroom. The key worker role works well and it is nice to see at regular parent's evenings how your child is progressing through the EYFS with ideas for development at home. The range of learning and play activities is great and very varied. I have been very impressed by the experiences offered e.g. learning about different cultures through visitors coming in to offer different activities.
It is clear to see that the children are happy and well looked after as well as learning and developing essential skills and knowledge to help them on their journey towards school.

The staff at Sunshine Day Nursery are wonderful. My youngest currently attends 2 days a week and he absolutely loves every minute of his time there. The range of play activities on offer is fantastic and the outside play space has seen significant improvements recently. Playing outside is his favourite time of the day - rain or shine.

My eldest also attended the nursery until recently and the pre-school is exceptional. Staff are caring and friendly with the children but take an approach that encourages independence and gets them ready for school.

I can't praise the staff of the nursery enough and thank them all for caring for my boys so well over the years.
