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 4.813 for Kaleidoscope Day Nursery (Gildersome) is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 3.458 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kaleidoscope Day Nursery (Gildersome) 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.208

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

My little one has just started at the nursery and all the staff in the pink room have been fab in helping him settle in. They're welcoming, kind and caring and always take into consideration each child's individual needs. Seeing my child playing and enjoying himself at nursery is wonderful to see and this helps me go to work knowing he is happy. They do such fun activities and provide amazing meals for him to eat. The app is an amazing feature as you can see what your child is doing each day, through pictures and comments. I'm so pleased with the nursery and would highly recommend to anyone!

The nursery provides a consistent staff team. Our son is always happy to be there. Communication with the nursery is very good and we have a good relationship with the staff. They always provide lots of new and interesting activities including trips to new places. There is lots of outdoor play and walks out in the local community.

We have used Kaleidoscope, Gildersome for the past 4 and a half years and have found it to be an amazing nursery. Both my girls have been in the nursery since about 10 months old. The eldest was there until she was nearly 4, it set her up so well for the move up onto pre-school and I can see the same happening for my youngest who will soon go to pre-school after just turning 3, but I know she will be fine as the efforts put in by the nursery to help her development have been outstanding. I find all the staff very friendly, hardworking and conscientious. The nursery is always clean, well equipped and the displays are always to a high standard. A great nursery!!
