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 4.885 for Acklam Road Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (500 Excellents x 5) + (61 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 563 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acklam Road Day Nursery is based on 10 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target Reached = 1

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

Both of my children have attended Acklam Day Nursery, it is a wonderful setting, the staff are always friendly and informative when passing on information about my child’s day. My little boy has a great time, he is always doing exciting activities that allow him to learn through his play.

The Nursery use a fabulous system called Tapestry which allows me to see photos of his daily activities and provides me with an insight to his learning and his development stages within the Early Years Development Matters. I am really happy with his development.

The Nursery have their own cook and provide daily snacks and a varied lunch menu which my little boy really enjoys.

The Nursery has a lovely outdoor space which the children access on a daily basis. The Nursery staff are a great team who strive to make the Nursery Enviroment a safe, welcoming and fun place to be.

My son has down syndrome. Since starting the nursery last summer it’s brought him on tremendously. He settled in with no bother at all, the staff are smashing with him he’s always happy and smiling when I drop him off and collect him. He loves going. The new manager has been great to introduce some training in Makaton for all the staff as me and my son use this form of communication at home too.
I would recommend this nursery 100%.

My experience at the nursery was extremely pleasant. The staff were welcoming from the get-go. It was a friendly atmosphere for both me and my son. The interior was bright and colourful, aesthetically pleasing for the children with an array of toys and equipment to add to a child’s learning. My child felt at home and able to mix with other kids straight away. Very clean and hygienic environment. And the staff are helpful and flexible with my work schedule. Would recommend and happy for my son to begin his education.

All my children go to Acklam day, they love it and the staff are lovely. I'm always made to feel welcome and any questions are answered. It has a high standard of hygiene but most of all my children always come out laughing. I'm really impressed with all the staff's attitude to work nothing is ever "too much trouble" for them. Great work girls keep it up!

Christine, Nurseries Manager at Acklam Road Day Nursery responded to this review on 19 Jan 2018:

Thank you for your lovely comments Zoey

Our son can’t wait to go to nursery. Every day he starts and finishes in a great mood, his development is continually showing and we couldn’t be happier with the progress he is making. The nursery is fantastic, flexible and caring. We have no complaints and are reassured by the progress our son is making, how he seems so happy and settled and full of life. He has made friends already and comes home chattering about his daily exploits. We are kept informed about any issues and are encouraged to share our son's experiences at home with the nursery team. Great nursery.

My daughter, who has special needs, has been attending the Acklam Road Day Nursery for nearly 2 years, and I have found the appointed one to one staff member, the general staff and management here to be extremely supportive, caring and inclusive.
The new manager has been especially understanding of my daughter's challenges and has been forward-thinking about what she needs when she attends 3 days a week, in order for her to enjoy the time she spends there to the maximum.
Well done everyone, I really appreciate your hard work.

Thank you, Jan for your lovely words. I am so happy you and your daughter enjoy nursery.

My daughter has recently started at the nursery and we were both made to feel extremely welcome. All of the staff have been great and have made the transition into nursery as easy as possible. I was very anxious about leaving her but the staff have put me at ease and she loves it already. I would highly recommend.

Christine, Nurseries Manager at Acklam Road Day Nursery responded to this review on 08 Jan 2018:

We really appreciate your lovely comments, Kayleigh, thank you.

My son has continued to be cared for to an exceptional standard by all the staff at Acklam Day Nursery. He really enjoys his days there and asks to see the girls when he's at home.
All the staff always greet you with a warm and welcoming smile, when I drop and pick him up. When the previous manager left and the new manager started, he warmed to her straight away, which he doesn't do often. The manageress has helped me out immensely whilst I was starting up my new business, she helped me work out days which would be suitable for him. She was very understanding when I was grieving for my mam, who I lost last year. She was excellent with him and I have seen him advance a great amount over the last 6 months... fantastic work, keep it up, you are all fab. Overall, a brilliantly run nursery, which I recommend to whoever I can.

My son has been here since 1 yr old.
The staff are very friendly, helpful, and informative.
He has loved going there, and still goes there now he goes for breakfast club and after school and through the holidays.
The girls there are amazing. My son tells me the fun things he does which are educational too.
He's a very fussy eater and they help him and cater for his needs.
Thank you to all the staff.

This is a brilliant nursery. My nephew has been going here for quite a few years and I would pick him up often. The security procedures they have are fantastic. I would have to give a password each time I picked him up until the girls knew who I was. The girls are always friendly and so helpful.

Thank you for the kind words.

This nursery is excellent. My son has been going here for 5yrs. He started part time the went to full time and now goes to breakfast club and after school club. I wouldn't have my son in any other nursery and my son wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He also goes in the school holidays.
The staff are amazing. They have helped me through some rather tough stages in my life and have gone above and beyond to help me.

Thank you, Eileen, I shall pass on your wonderful comments to the girls.

My little girl absolutely loves it here and always asks to go on the days she doesn't attend. The staff are wonderful with her and go out of their way with her as she can be very fussy (eating) or very demanding, she has a medical condition which sometimes impacts on her behaviour and the staff know her so well now it's never an issue.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for quite some time and enjoys her time there, she is a sociable girl and enjoys interacting with the other children which she thrives on at nursery. I believe her attendance here will give her the basics she will need when she starts school in September. I am also happy with the food served and the varied menu which suits different needs.

We do like to sing and a big thank you for your lovely feedback.

Great environment for my son who has created friendships and relationships with other nursery children and staff alike.
They are happy to work with myself to make the transitions of potty training easier.
I have recommended the nursery to others.

It is a fab nursery my child loves it and loves all the staff. My child has come on loads since being in day care and were really happy as a family that this is the nursery we chose. It has a very friendly atmosphere and the children are extremely welcome. My child loves it.

So far I have been extremely pleased with how the nursery have been caring for my son. He seems to be really enjoying going to nursery and playing with the staff/children each day. As a parent I feel that having the "Tapestry" programme is invaluable and especially as I can have an insight into what he gets up to. Keep up the good work :)

My daughter enjoys nursery and comes 2 days a week. She loves all the staff and I am at ease when I am at work. The staff keep me informed on what she does on a daily basis.
