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 4.75 for Southfield Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.694 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Southfield Day Nursery is based on 5 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.694

  • 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 has been at this nursery since he was 4 months old and is now nearly 4. I cannot fault this nursery as all of the staff are lovely and extremely helpful in every way. In my opinion, my son has taken part in a lot of lovely activities from which I have gained lots of keepsakes. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone as they really do care about each and every child.

Both children have attended Southfield Day Nursery and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends or other parents looking for a safe, home from home environment. The staff are extremely caring and professional and go out of their way to make sure that children are settled and happy in their care. As parents, we have been very happy with the care provided and working full-time. It has been a blessing to find such a lovely nursery with great staff who look after the children as if they were their own.

The nursery is homely and set up very well with security, they also have a brilliant large garden.
My little one has been very happy to come to nursery and by the looks of his tapestry which is always up to date, he loves his time here.
