Reviews

8.3 Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.349)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.983 for Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 3.366 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.116

  • 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, aged 10 months, started nursery in December. I cannot express how happy I am with Portland House. The care they provide is second to none. My daughter is growing in confidence and excelling and I believe this is due to the nursery's input. She is so excited upon arriving at the nursery. The staff at Portland are fantastic, welcoming and make me feel very at ease which is very important to me as going back to work I have found extremely difficult. Portland has helped me make this transition very easy and I would definitely recommend them. The diary sheets I love and I love how they keep parents in the loop. I am so pleased and cannot recommend them highly enough. If I were to have a second child, I would have no hesitation in sending them to Portland. I would also add that I went to view 4 alternative nurseries to Portland (all which were more expensive) and the value for money is absolutely amazing.

Anastasia, General Manager at Portland House Nursery & After School / Holiday Club responded to this review on 03 Mar 2017:

Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you daughter is settling in and enjoying her time at nursery with us!

Portland House Nursery is excellent. Before he started going to nursery, my baby was exclusively breastfed and would only nap on the move! He also was never babysat by anyone - always looked after by me and his dad only. We were terribly worried he wouldn't settle easily but he surprised us both, thanks to the skill, experience and kindness of the staff. Now he naps easily, eats loads and looks like he just wants to keep playing when I go to collect him. I can tell that he loves his keyworker and all of the staff in the baby room. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Both my children have been at Portland House since they were babies. They have always received excellent care from both their key workers and the other members of staff in all the rooms they have been in. So much so that our daughter now attends the after-school club - who are also brilliant.
I know my children are wonderfully cared for whenever they are in the care of Portland House.
The manager and all her staff are friendly, approachable and supportive of your child's needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I am very happy with the care both my daughters have received at Portland House Nursery. The Nursery is a well run organised caring environment where babies and children are encouraged to learn and play and have fun. There is good communication and we always feel welcome and very much a part of what goes on.
