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 4.767 for Holly House Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.767

  • 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 4.946 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holly House Private Day Nursery is based on 7 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 7.4 positive Reviews (37 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 7.4 Target = 0.946

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

Holly House is the setting for both our children (4 & 2 years). The pull for us is the family feel and nurturing environment. It honestly is like leaving the children with family members; they have fun-filled days and feel truly valued. All rooms have a different but lovely feel. The team are patient, helpful, proactive and always professional.
In terms of the curriculum; we couldn’t be more pleased with the progress our children are making. Staff take the monitoring seriously and are very focused on supporting them. Activities are nicely linked to skills and developing understanding, with a variety used to engage. However, the children do not feel this pressure, instead they leave each day at nursery feeling they have played with friends.
As one of our children prepares for school, we know that Holly House has had a huge part in preparing her for the next big step. We couldn’t recommend this early years setting highly enough.

I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone. After visiting a few nurseries when choosing for our daughter Holly House won hands down .... our heart fell in love with the place, the staff and we knew straight away our minds would be at ease when our daughter started .... best choice ever and after speaking to other parents we all are saying the same. If you want peace of mind, a nursery that nurtures and cares unconditionally for your child and puts them first in all they do well only one contender, Holly House xx

Holly House is a fantastic nursery. The staff are brilliant and my children have formed close bonds with many of them. I have always found staff really supportive at key points such as potty training and this definitely had a positive effect on the outcome. Nursery days are packed with a variety of activities to progress development including pyjama drama and French classes. It has been wonderful to watch my children develop over the months/years and the online learning log is a useful record of their progress. The nursery is managed really well and parents are regularly appraised of key information and developments. My children really enjoy their nursery days and I leave them safe in the knowledge that they are well looked after. I have no hesitation in recommending Holly House to anyone.

Fantastic Nursery!!
My 2 year old has attended Holly House for nearly 12 months now and has come on leaps and bounds. He loves it, and we are extremely pleased with his development which is largely down to the dedication and care shown by all members of staff. 10/10 thank you!!

Holly House provides a safe environment for our children. They are nurtured, loved, encouraged to try new things, engaged in activities, educated and entertained among other things. It’s a nursery that tailors development to the individual child. The staff work tirelessly to ensure children get the best possible opportunities to be themselves.

Holly House is a small family owned nursery that provides a caring environment for babies and young children. All the meals are healthy and there are some really helpful polices such as no puddings (except birthday cakes) and access to screens is limited as the staff value other ways of learning. The nursery has a lovely big private garden and the children are encouraged to play outside every day. Our little boy loves songs and stories and there are plenty of these to listen to and join in with.

Holly House provide excellent care for my child. They provide her with a range of opportunities and experiences which she loves. They are a very caring nursery who make you feel like part of a family. The children are natured and they model good behaviour and practice. My child has developed and blossomed at Holly House. They are extremely supportive and will help you in whatever way they can. Regular parent's evening's are fantastic and their learning books online mean you can see photos of what they are doing and so can your family.

I would recommend this nursery to anyone, my daughter used to go to this nursery when she was 8 months old up until she started school, my son started when he was 8 months old he's now 3 and leaving for school in September. And my 10 month old son is in the baby room there now. I can't praise the nursery enough, I've never had a problem but if I did I know that it would be resolved straight away. All the staff are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Made me feel comfortable to leave my children and I'm a very over protective mum. Can't thank Holly House enough, all my kids love it there! Happy kids happy parents!.

This nursery is amazing the staff are so friendly and for the children they have everything they work with them really closely and watch them develop, my son has been going there for 6 months now and what a change for the better from his last nursery I can leave him now and know he is in safe hands. If you were looking at a nursery this should be your first choice 10 out of 10.
