  • 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 4.917 for Priory House Acorns (Llanishen) is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Priory House Acorns (Llanishen) is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.067

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

My daughter loves Acorns (Lisvane) and has been going since she was 8 months old - she is now 3. The staff are brilliant with her and she speaks very fondly of them. Lots of outdoor play and crafts. I would highly recommend.

We have been very impressed with the care provided to our son at Acorns. It took time for my son to settle in and he would cry every morning. The staff were excellent at comforting and distracting him and also providing me with the reassurance that he would settle. There are an excellent range of activities taking place each day, which takes place both inside and outside. The quality of the good is very good and it is very good to have a day report, outlining how they have been/what they have eaten etc. The staff are very approachable and I feel confident that I could raise any issues with them if need be.

My daughter is very happy and settled at Acorns and has made lots of friends. The building is like an old mansion house and feels very homely inside - a home from home! The staff are lovely and caring and organise plenty of fun activities for the children. There's a lovely outdoor area with a play area including slide, trikes etc, a garden, vegetables growing in raised beds and a forest school. The children get outside quite a lot. The location is very convenient, next to the local train station and on a main route into town. Parents evenings are very useful and staff know my daughter well, she is developing well and enjoys her days at nursery.

My daughter started at Acorns Nursery when she was 9 months old. She has nearly been attending for a full year and she visibly loves going in to Nursery. We have been consistently impressed by the professionalism of the staff and the range of wonderful activities she takes part in. We have a huge collection of paintings and photos of activities she has done and has developed her social skills and her speech wonderfully. We could not be more impressed by the facilities and the friendly staff that have made her time in nursery not just a necessity due to me returning to work but a complete benefit to her development.

The nursery has been faultless throughout. Our child has benefited from the interaction with other children and the variety of activities organised by the nursery. Their high standards and caring staff have made my transition back to work easier.
