Reviews

7.9 Bolland Hall Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.938)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Bolland Hall 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bolland Hall Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 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 4.771 for Bolland Hall Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.771

  • 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bolland Hall Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

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

My 2-year-old son has attended this nursery for the past 10 months. He started off very shy and nervous about being left. Although he took a while to settle in, the caring nature of all the staff meant I was always happy to leave him knowing he would be happily playing not to long after I left him. They provide fun, interactive and educational activities every day as well as allowing free play which I feel is important for young children. I thoroughly recommend this nursery to anyone that is requiring childcare.

My daughter started going to Bolland when she was 21 months old and stayed till she just turned 4yrs and joined nursery at her current school. She would spend two mornings a week there. Within a matter of weeks attending Bolland, I noticed that her speech and vocabulary had improved.
My daughter is a very sociable child and loved mixing with the children and staff at the nursery. She loved the activities such as role play, messy play, outdoor play and she learnt many valuable skills.
I am now hoping that my 13 month old can get a place there too.
I can't recommend it highly enough.

This nursery provides excellent learning awe and wonder! Play experiences are varied and child centred. In the past this nursery has met the needs of my autistic step grandson and now has given my granddaughter an excellent platform of learning experiences to be ready to continue that as she starts school in September.
Staff encourage a wide range of activities both inside and out! Focus is on the individual child and how best to support their learning!
As an E Y retired practitioner I have always been thankful that my grandchildren gave had such a good nursery education, thank you

My daughter has been attending Bolland for the past year and is due to leave to start school nursery in September and I don't know who is going to be more devastated about her moving on; she has loved every minute of every day she has been there.
She began her nursery journey in a large branded bursary in Newcastle city centre which she did enjoy but she has truly blossomed since her move to Bolland due to the fact that there is such a caring learning environment, staff are so friendly and there is the outstanding outside space which they make full use of.
The topics are interesting and well integrated into the daily routine; the lunches are healthy and nutritious and the staff encourage independence and a group feel to meal times. Children are given specific tasks which sets them in good stead for starting school.
Overall I could not recommend this nursery more.
