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 5 for Toybox Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Toybox Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Danielle K (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 3 October 2017. Relates to August 2017.
My son has been attending Toybox for 2 years, from aged 2 to 4. Right from the start, all the staff at Toybox welcomed my son with open arms. He settled quickly there and for the two years he was there we experienced a family of caring, kind individuals. I cannot say enough about what a lovely environment there is. My son loves the outdoors and Toybox encourages the children to play outside whenever able to.
They have miraculously taken a very fussy eater and managed to get him to eat absolutely everything. Toybox was always clean and tidy, with plenty of toys and activities for children of all ages. The support from management as a parent is unbelievable and even now my son has left, I would not hesitate to return for a visit to catch up. A wonderful nursery with the kindest and most supportive staff you could ask for.
