Reviews

6.6 Stanley Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.6 (6.642)

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Stanley Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Stanley Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.958 for Stanley Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 1.684 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Stanley Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0.118 , then divided by 2 = 0.059

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

Reviewer Connection to Stanley Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

After visiting lots of nurseries for our boys aged 6 months and 2.5 (at the time), as soon as we walked in to Stanley Nursery and met one of the owners I knew we didn't have to look anymore!
The boys are now 9.5 and 11.5, and whilst our eldest is at senior school, our younger son still goes to after school club at Stanley, and has been lovingly looked after and cared for by the owners and their staff, for 9 years.
The nursery endeavours to work with us to create an environment which encompasses our parenting priorities, and the happiness of our boys. They are incredibly flexible, which as working parents is essential (especially as I am so disorganised)!
I recommended Stanley Nursery to my best friend when she was looking for a nursery for my goddaughter, and she went there for a number of years until they moved.
As a mum I want peace of mind that my children are safe, well cared for and happy, and I have always felt this was and is the case!

Julia Schofield, Director at Stanley Day Nursery responded to this review on 26 Jan 2016:

Thank you for your kind words and review. I'm so pleased that you're still happy with the care that we provide. As a working mum myself, I understand how important it is to be flexible. That's why we provide full time, part time, shift patterns, term time only and holiday time only care. Life's not always straightforward and we like to support our families however we can.

Having worked in childcare for 12 years myself I am often critical of nurseries but I have to say I have nothing but praise for this setting. My son has attended for 5 years now (nursery and breakfast club) and has always been very happy. His needs have always been understood and met, he had a fantastic relationship with his key worker in the nursery and is very comfortable now with staff in breakfast club. As a parent I have always felt valued and respected and the nursery is a caring environment to all. This is not a nursery that is happy to accept good standards, it is always developing, always evolving and always striving to meet the children's needs in a fun filled way, the owner shows passion and enthusiasm and I am glad I chose such a good nursery for my son, thank you everyone for making him feel so comfortable and settled at every step on the way.
