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 4.952 for The Elmfield Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (80 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.952

  • 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 4.412 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Elmfield Nursery is based on 7 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 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0.412

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

I would highly recommend Elmfield Nursery. My son has attended since he was one year old and has always been very happy there. It is a well-run nursery and the staff are all friendly and professional, always giving the children the best care and attention. It is a homely environment with a particularly lovely garden for the children to play in.

A combination of very caring staff and constantly high standards have meant our experience of Elmfield has been fantastic. The staff and management work hard to promote great communication between nursery and home and any niggles we have had have been sorted quickly. Our sons are happy and thriving, which is a reflection of the nursery and its practices.

Both of my children have been extremely happy at Elmfield. My youngest is still there and has a strong bond with the team and children at nursery. It is a wonderfully creative, playful and engaging environment from the moment you walk in the door.

I have two children at Elmfield who have been happy and content since day one. The staff are friendly and caring. They adapt play and tasks around the likes and skills of my four-year-old to enhance his interest in numbers and maths. The children rush to nursery and never want to leave and that’s the best feedback I could get.
