  • 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 4.667 for Denby Dale First and Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.667

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Denby Dale First and Nursery School is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0

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

My four year old daughter has been attending this nursery since she was one year old (provision is now from age two onwards), initially for two days a week. The rapport she has with the wonderful staff and the care they provide are all excellent. Not only that, her curiosity for learning is always encouraged and at just the right pace. She’s currently at an age where she’s about to make the transition from pre-school to full time education, and in my opinion, Denby Dale First and Nursery School manages this process particularly well.

My little boy has attended Dragonflies for nearly 2 years, I looked at several nurseries before choosing this one. As soon as I walked through the door, I knew this one was the right one for us, the staff are all lovely & friendly, well informed & communicate very well. The new premises are clean, well equipped and always immaculately maintained. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter has been attending Denby Dale nursery for 3 years now and I cannot praise them enough. The staff are fantastic, I know that my child is supported and that they genuinely care for her individual needs.
There is always a variety of activities ready for the children each day and they play outside at every opportunity!
I would strongly recommend this nursery.

My 2 year old daughter loves going to nursery. She is there 4 days a week and has only been attending since February and has already grown up a lot. I get an updated daily activity report every day from toilet training to playing. Also very good with any special dietary needs as my daughter is lactose & soya intolerant.

We are extremely happy with the provision at Dragonflies. There is lots to stimulate the imagination whilst at the same time it is organised so that the children feel safe to explore different activities both inside and outside. The staff are all friendly and caring and there is a good atmosphere. My twins moved here about 6 months ago and they really enjoy going, I would highly recommend this nursery.
