  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.797 for Spring Nursery Bensham is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.797

  • 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 4.463 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Spring Nursery Bensham is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.463

  • 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 this nursery 3 days a week since she was 11 months old. She is now 4. I could not be happier with the care and support provided by all staff and cannot recommend enough.

Fantastic Nursery what more can I say?

My son attended Spring Nursery Bensham from the age of 1 and finished last July aged 4 and now my daughter attends this nursery. The staff are brilliant with the children, encouraging early years development and helping to nurture them as they grow. It really is a Godsend to know that my children are in safe hands! The manager and her staff are a huge credit to this place and it made my decision a lot easier when considering a nursery provider for my daughter when I returned to work after Mat leave. Even though it’s going out of our way it’s still worth the extra few miles knowing our daughter is in the best care possible.

Thank you Lauren!

We are delighted with Spring Bensham. The team are incredibly friendly, flexible and professional and the nursery and facilities are great. The garden, in particular, is a fab space. But most importantly of all, the staff are kind, warm, experienced, gentle and patient in their care of the children. We'd highly recommended the nursery to any parents.
