8.3 Jigsaws Childcare Ltd has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.266)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Jigsaws Childcare Ltd 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jigsaws Childcare Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.472 for Jigsaws Childcare Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.472

  • 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 3.794 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jigsaws Childcare Ltd is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.294

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

They have fully supported my daughter since the age of 6 months. She is now 2 years, 4 months and they have encouraged and developed her non stop. They encouraged her potty training and have dealt with it with no problems. My daughter's maths and love for books have continued at nursery where they do non stop development with her whilst including the fun element.

My 20-month-old daughter only started with Jigsaws Childcare Ltd 4 weeks ago. It was difficult at first as it was new for the both of us. I am regularly kept up to date with how she gets on during her time there and encouraged to call if I have any concerns. The staff are all lovely and have really helped my daughter settle and make the most of her time.
