  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 8 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)

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 4.844 for Jitterbugs Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.844

  • 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 2.278 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jitterbugs Day Nursery is based on 8 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.556 , then divided by 2 = 0.278

  • 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 attended Jitterbugs for around 18 months and for the past 8 months of these, she has been in the pre-school. The setting is excellent, has a lot of different options and they make very good use of space. The staff are all caring and polite. I would not hesitate to recommend.

After experiencing a different setting with my first child I can see how Jitterbugs Day Nursery go that extra mile to teach, engage and care for the children. Jitterbugs have been tremendously supportive at every stage from my son joining at 2 years old to my daughter joining after school club. The activities in every room are fulfilling and keep the children wanting to go back for more. I can see why they have the Ofsted rating they have.

The nursery is very welcoming towards me and my child when we come and drop off. My child is very happy and settled well into the room and is excited to talk about nursery at home. The nursery is very big and bright and my child loves going.

I have been using Jitterbugs Day Nursery for two and a half years for both my children and they love it. They have been in every room from Babies up to Out of School club and the staff take great care to ensure the transitions are smooth and stress-free. They have learned so much as well as being looked after by genuinely caring staff who also support parents by offering advice and help when requested. The facilities and equipment are of a high quality and very clean and well maintained. The activities are varied and engaging for the children and always well run and controlled. I can't praise Jitterbugs Day Nursery enough and would definitely recommend them to other parents.
