Reviews

6.8 Harcourt Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.8 (6.837)

The Review Score of 6.8 (maximum of 10) for Harcourt Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Harcourt Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.464 for Harcourt Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (39 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.464

  • 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 2.373 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Harcourt Day Nursery is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.745 , then divided by 2 = 0.373

  • 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 has been attending Harcourt Day Nursery since January when she turned one. She absolutely loves spending time there, from the minute I drop her off to when I collect her she is all smiles. This certainly takes the pressure off me when I'm in work, knowing she's in good hands. It wasn't like this is the early days, she was very tearful being in a new environment but thanks to the wonderful caring staff she was soon settled within only a few visits. I am always made to feel very welcome by the staff and it's lovely to see all the other children being so well cared for in a very calm loving environment. That is the one thing that stood out for me on my first visit; what a calm and happy place Harcourt is.

Fantastic nursery that has gone above and beyond helping our daughter settle and grow into a lovely, young girl, ready for Reception in September. Would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a great care provider in our area.

My daughter has been going to Harcourt day nursery for over a year now, she started at 7 months I have been extremely happy with the nursery from the moment we looked round. It was such a friendly atmosphere the staff where well informed and answered all our questions and put us at ease. Since joining my daughter has come on leaps and bounds and loves going to nursery, if I have had to talk to the staff about any issues nothing is too much trouble and comments are always taken on board and dealt with.

I can not recommend the nursery highly enough, it's a fantastic place.

Went for our show around today and were totally impressed!
Enrolled our son with no hesitation to start in November.

The staff showed us around every room and the different stages for each child. We weren't rushed and spent nearly an hour looking round.

The best thing we thought was how happy all the kids were, the bigger ones all chatted to us whilst they were going in for lunch (which smelled great) there were loads of things for them to do, particularly impressed with the areas designated to roll play and messy play!

Kitchen was spotless and the girls in the baby room explained how they would follow any routine we liked even down to what they would use to wipe baby's bum!

Really happy with our choice and feel completely relieved to have found the place we want to leave our baby!

Also as we were leaving a fire engine pulled up for the kids to explore, brilliant!
