Bedlington Bears Nursery has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.639)
The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Bedlington Bears Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bedlington Bears Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.5 for Bedlington Bears Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.5
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:
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.
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.
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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bedlington Bears Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Lesley H (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 20 June 2017. Relates to June 2017.
Both of my boys have attended this nursery since they were about 10 months. My eldest is starting school in September and will be staying here as they offer really helpful out of school care with pick up and drop offs to the local first/primary schools! I have nothing but praise for this little nursery! The staff really do care about my boys and have been instrumental in bringing them along with learning, development and general social skills. The flexibility of attendance arrangements is unique to the area and great for shift work, term time and just generally heading off on family holidays. It basically can save you a fortune compared with other inflexible establishments! My boys are very happy here and never want to leave at the end of the day!
