  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Phoenix House Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 14 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 4.75 for Phoenix House Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (128 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.389 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Phoenix House Day Nursery is based on 14 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). 14 Reviews ÷ 36 Target = 0.389

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

My son has joined Rastrick with little confidence. He has grown into such a happy, settled little boy. Great communication from the school and I can't thank the school enough.

I have been very happy sending my little boy here. He loves going and I never worry about him when he's there.
Staff are very flexible if I am running late to pick him up. Any questions and concerns are always dealt with quickly. I would certainly recommend.

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.

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.
