Reviews

9 Rastrick Nursery & Independent School has a Review Score of 9 (9.021)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Rastrick Nursery & Independent School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rastrick Nursery & Independent School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 12 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 4.688 for Rastrick Nursery & Independent School is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (39 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 4.333 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rastrick Nursery & Independent School is based on 12 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 36 positive Reviews (180 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 36 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.

I liked the way my son was looked after at this nursery and was very impressed with his educational advancements so this helped me send my other son there too.

Continue with the excellent work you do with children.

My child started the nursery in 2016. Over the year, my child has become really confident. She is always keen to go to nursery, she is happy and cared for with love and attention. The nursery has great outdoor facilities and a fantastic team of staff that are always delivering beyond expectation.

Very happy with how my son is at the nursery. I never worry about leaving him. He loves coming and is learning new things all the time. If I have any concerns there is always someone to talk too.

Both our children have attended Rastrick Independent from being babies. The low staff turnover means the children build great relationships with the nannies and teachers and it really is a home from home - which is great if you have to leave them for long days as we do.

For the older children, the structure of the day helps them develop academically and gets them ready for the transition to school.

We are really happy with the progress our eldest has made over the last three years and by how quickly the youngest has settled in. I would happily recommend to prospective parents.

Our son attended from 4 months old, initially for 4 days per week from 8am to 5.30pm, from day one he was happy with the teachers and environment. As he has grown, he has thrived and enjoys going every day.
The nursery is flexible and caters for long or short days from 7.30am to 6.30pm. If you are delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, there are facilities in place to look after your child.

As the nursery is part of a school it is a good way to get them used to school life and I'm sure the transition for our son in September will go smoothly, he is already looking forward to it.

The days at nursery are structured and I don't feel that he has missed out on the one on one attention he would have got at home, in fact being around other children and taking part in group activities has given him confidence and he is doing very well with numeracy and literacy.

The teachers and support staff all make it a friendy and happy place to be. Our other son has just started.
