The Review Score of 6.4 (maximum of 10) for Sandmartins Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sandmartins Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 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 4.883 for Sandmartins Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.883

  • 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 1.55 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sandmartins Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100 , then divided by 2 = 0.050

  • 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 Sandmartins Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

Sansdmartins is an excellent nursery. The staff are always friendly and obviously enjoy working with children. They provide excellent educational activities with lots of fun and mess thrown in! The outside space doubles the size of the nursery and allows the children plenty of room to run around or play on the many ride-on toys which my son loves.

My 3½ year old son has attended Sandmartins since he was 9 months old. We choose the nursery as the staff were very friendly and welcoming and for the excellent facilities and lots of outdoor space. I feel as though as the nursery has great leadership and the staff know all the children well and my son's key workers have been excellent. He has developed so much in this time and has excellent social skills away from the nursery environment. I sought advice from the team to help with my sons toilet training and they were very supportive and helped make the transition as smooth as possible.
They have a wide range of activities available at the nursery and they are encouraged to play outside as much as possible which I think is very important. They also have a varying menu and my son seems to enjoy all the meals he is given.
I have recommended the nursery to a colleague and would have no hesitation is doing so again.

Sandmartins is a fantastic nursery. The staff are friendly, professional and committed. My daughter loves going. All the staff know you and your child regardless of which room the child is in. I feel very lucky that we've found such a great nursery.

Superb nursery! My child always gets the best care and attention here and she really learns a lot whilst having immense fun! The staff are friendly and are available to chat and give advice when required. They even run sessions on issues such as potty training, phonics and makaton. Highly recommended nursery!

Sandmartins is an excellent nursery with kind and friendly staff. My little girl started when she was 8 months old and is still there. She is very happy as are her friends who attend. All the staff know each child by name and have a good rapport with parents and children. I could not recommend the nursery highly enough.
