Reviews

7.3 Apple Blossom Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.333)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Apple Blossom Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Apple Blossom Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.833 for Apple Blossom Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (210 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Apple Blossom Day Nursery is based on 21 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • 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 attended this nursery in 2011 and still speaks fondly of her time at Apple Blossom. She would love to go back if she could, because of this we knew it was the only place we'd be happy to leave our son as I returned to university when he was only 3 months. The staff have been brilliant with both of my children, they both enjoy their time in the setting and I feel that being at Apple Blossom has done wonders for their development. Everything about the place is fab! We can't fault it!

My little boy is always happy at nursery. They helped him settled when he started and after any breaks he has had. He always gets up to great activities and comes out with a smile on his face. Staff are welcoming and caring and I trust them completely with my little one.

My son has been going to Apple Blossom since he was 9 months old and now he's almost 3. His development and the change in him over this time is astonishing and I can honestly say that this, in part, is down to all of the fantastic staff here. As a single parent I sometimes worry that I'm doing things right and that my little boy is reaching his milestones at the right times. I'm forever asking advice from the staff and it's always spot on. I love that I get to go to parent evenings and have a look through his development folder as well as written observations. It's always hard leaving your little ones while you have to go to work but apple blossom made a hard process so relaxing. I always look forward to picking him up and getting a run through of what he's been doing or what he's had for lunch. The staff are a massive part of my sons life and I can't thank them enough for helping build my baby into a happy, healthy and confident young boy. Thank you all and long may it continue x

My little girl has been at Apple Blossom since she was 5 month old and I can honestly say she loves being there. The staff are extremely friendly, always happy to help and do a huge number of activities with the children to keep them entertained. My little girl has developed so much since starting, I would highly recommend Apple Blossom to any parent.

I am very satisfied with the care provided by Apple Blossom and all the team. I decided to use this nursery as I initially visited other providers, but Apple Blossom stood out due to the warm welcome and knowledgeable and caring staff. I have been a customer for over 2 years now, and my child is full-time which I pay for privately due to my high salary. I am still very pleased with the care and everything received and couldn’t ask for more. I also feel that the team work around me as a full time working mum who is also a lone parent which brings its challenges! Overall an excellent service which is both child and parent-centred.

Fantastic staff, all wonderful with the children, they are all so creative and go out of their way to help you. I would highly recommend the day-care, my children can count, add up and write their own names before they have even started school. I have 100% confidence that I made the right choice for my two children with this day care.
