Reviews

9.9 Minnows Children's Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.874)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Minnows Children's Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 48 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Minnows Children's Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.874 for Minnows Children's Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (505 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 572 Ratings = 4.874

  • 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 Minnows Children's Day Nursery is based on 16 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

Thank you for your lovely comments, they are greatly appreciated.

I think Minnows is a brilliant nursery. My daughter enjoys going to nursery, smiles upon entry and when seeing staff whom she has an amazing relationship with. My daughter has progressed massively since starting with Minnows in July. It's one of the best things I have done for her.

Thank you very much for review, it is very much appreciated Leanne.

My three grandsons have attended Minnows until they were eligible to attend full-time school. We deliberately kept the boys there because by the time they entered school, they were well ahead in the basic's knowledge and were very confident in working with other children. I have personally found this nursery to be very supportive in all aspect of children's development daily communication between key workers and family.
Lots of praise and support for the children and they always acknowledging them as individuals as well as working together. I cannot praise this nursery enough for the support they have given the boys and the family as well.

My son started Minnows in April, he has come along so well with his confidence and is much more playful in activities as a 2 year old should. My son has mild hearing loss and glue ear and the nursery has a speech therapist weekly which is great as he manages only to have it every three mornings at home. Outside they have a fantastic fort with a slide but it is a shame it has no green grass for the children to run more and let off some energy. The staff are wonderful and always at hand to help of give advice . The cook works hard and makes scrumptious lunches for my son. Thank you to a great nursery managed by a good team leader and a fantastic nursery manager.

The staff at Minnows are really good with the parents and children, they make it really easy for you to leave your child knowing they are well looked after. They always give you information on how your child's day has been and how they are progressing.
