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 4.944 for Happy Jays York is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happy Jays York is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0

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

This nursery is absolutely brilliant. My little girl loves Happy Jays, she's had an excellent start to her educational journey and the support she has had through a language delay and the need for grommets has been exceptional.The staff have so much time for her it is a pleasure to bring her. There is so much for the children to do and has a very close knit feel to the setting. I couldn't recommend this nursery any more than I already do, I tell family and friends all the time how great they all are with her. Keep up the good work it's amazing.

My little boy started at Happy Jays when he was 9 months old, he has always been happy there and has never had a problem transitioning from room to room, I feel this is due to the caring staff and brilliant practices they have in place. He has now left to go to school and I think he has had a great start due to the care given at the nursery, nothing was ever too much trouble. Now my little girl has started in the baby room and couldn't be happier, she is thriving. The food in the nursery is well cooked and very nutritious with a great variety of different foods on the menu.

My little boy is now nearly 4 and has attended the nursery since he was 4 months old, the care he received as a baby right through to pre school has been outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for the girls. He has made life long friendships with his all key persons throughout the nursery. He is now due to start at our local school nursery. Having been at Happy Jays has prepared him in so many ways. He is well advanced for his age and I believe this is down to the teaching and learning that he has received from all the staff. The nursery is bright and open with an added nursery garden which is a great place to learn about the world around them, this is something my son enjoys as he loves been outdoors. All the staff are friendly and polite who all seem to really enjoy what they do.
