Reviews

9.3 Holly Bank Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.314)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Holly Bank Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holly Bank Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.778 for Holly Bank Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 4.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holly Bank 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.536

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

My daughter has been attending Holly Bank for about 6 months now, and she has come on leaps and bounds since attending! Her language skills, communication, interaction, independence and social skills have really developed over the last few months and I believe this is because she is very happy and settled at the nursery. I have found staff to be very helpful, inviting and accommodating.
I am very happy with Holly Bank but most importantly my daughter is very happy here. And I am very happy with her progress. I would definitely recommend to other parents.

My son has been at nursery for over four months now and has loved every minute. The staff are caring, considerate and approachable, and his keyworker knows him well. We could not have wished for a better start to his nursery days and although it is hard leaving him on a morning, we are so much more comfortable in doing so, knowing that he is in such capable hands.

Thank you for your lovely review. It Is so nice to hear that your son has settled in well at Holly Bank!

My daughter loves coming to nursery and has made some really good friends and likes the staff. She's come home having learned Spanish and French and can communicate with me in these languages. Great menu with lots of variety. Staff are friendly and I feel safe leaving my child in their care. Gets on fantastic with her key worker.
Overall great experience.
