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 5 for Apple Blossom Day Nursery Durham Road is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.353 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Apple Blossom Day Nursery Durham Road is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 19.4 positive Reviews (97 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 19.4 Target = 0.103

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

My son attends this nursery and he absolutely loves it. Despite having so many children to look after the staff know him as an individual. Staff are friendly and very informative about my child's day. He is well looked after and all of his needs met. Despite only being 14 months old her participates in so many activities.

The people working at this nursery are amazing.
My son was very shy at two years old before starting nursery, but he is now confident and they've helped him learn loads.
Lovely staff all the time.

Kate Dickinson, Administration at Apple Blossom Day Nursery Durham Road responded to this review on 08 Nov 2017:

Thank you for such a lovely review! We are so pleased he's happy and confident in our nursery - the Apple Blossom Team

Both of my children have used Apple Blossom Day Nursery for the past 5 years. I send them because I think the staff are amazing. They value my children as unique individuals and share their enthusiasm for things they enjoy. My children have always come home from nursery happy and excited about the things they have done that day. The staff always inform me about what they've eaten, who they've played with, what they have been learning and their behaviour. I would strongly recommend this nursery over every other one.

My daughter has been attending Apple Blossom nursery since she was seven months old and really enjoys going. She will be starting school in September and after visiting the school I have realised how easy this transition will be for her due to the work and set up of the nursery.
She always comes home with something new she has learned whether it be Makaton signs, a new song or further reading and writing skills.
The staff are all very friendly and I know my daughter looks forward to seeing these each day as much as she does her friends.
My son will be starting Apple Blossom in September and I know that he is in safe hands and will be getting the best start to his educational journey.

My son has attended Apple Blossom full time from being 9 months old and has never been happier. He receives excellent care from all the staff. I find all the girls to be friendly, approachable and professional. The nursery environment is stimulating for him and he loves the big garden and outdoor sandpit. As a parent, its great to know that I can go to work knowing my son is safe and well looked after at Apple Blossom while he's also having a great time. Thanks Apple Blossom!
