Reviews

9.1 Blue Sky Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.129)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Blue Sky Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blue Sky Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.69 for Blue Sky Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.69

  • 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 4.439 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blue Sky Day Nursery is based on 5 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.439

  • 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 Blue Sky Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

Since starting nursery in the Imps Room at the age of 2 years, my child has absolutely thrived under the guidance of the lovely staff at Blue Sky Day Nursery. With little to no previous social interaction with children of his own age prior to starting at this nursery he has become much more confident and has learned so much with all the activities he gets the chance to enjoy. Most importantly of all, I feel confident as a parent that he is very well looked after and he is so excited to attend.

Thank you for the lovely review, so happy you are pleased with our service, it’s very reassuring when parents feel the same as we do about our fab team!

A fantastic nursery with fantastic staff. All very friendly and brilliant at looking after my little boy. He’s happy to walk in and me leave with no problems. They do their best to accommodate any needs required and also have been helpful on advice to a first time mum.
A clean, well structured set up and they also help develop the growth in my child with the interaction of children of different ages, as well as a structured learning development within their own age group class with lots of fun and different activities and learning topics.
Couldn’t recommend more.
My son follows attendance after both my nephews had attended.

Thank you for the lovely review, so pleased to hear that your boys enjoy their time with us at Blue Sky.

Our little boy has been going to Blue Sky Day Nursery since he was about 9 months old and he absolutely loves going every week. He always has so much excitement when telling us what he’s been doing. I’m so happy with how the nursery staff are helping us try to potty train our little boy. He always has a little sticker chart to show us at the end of a busy day.

Thank you for the lovely review, it’s always great to get such fab feedback.

I have been using Blue Sky for 18months now and I could not be more pleased with the level of care my children receive.
All the staff are fantastic, friendly and give me a rundown of my children's day every time I pick them up. I love how flexible Blue Sky is and how helpful and supportive the staff are.
