  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.929 for Belle Vue Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (222 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.929

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Belle Vue Nursery is based on 16 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target Reached = 1

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

9.9 Belle Vue Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.929)

Reviewer Connection to Belle Vue Nursery

My eldest son started at Belle Vue Nursery in December, he goes 3 days a week and since he's been going his speech has improved massively. Always welcomed by the girls and when myself or his dad go and pick him up they always go through his daily routine. Brilliant nursery and when my youngest son is older I will be sending him there. I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else and would definitely recommend.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 1 year old.
I can not recommend Bellevue nursery enough. My son loves all members of staff, has thrived during each stage of his development throughout his time here and this is down to the brilliant staff training and the educational aspects of his nursery day.
The staff are both fantastic with my son and me. We are kept up to date regularly on his day and also during parents evenings.
I was recommended this nursery by a family member who already had a daughter attending and I am very glad I listened and chose Bellevue.

My son has settled beautifully into Belle Vue Nursery, the staff are very welcoming and are always happy to see him. They plan lovely activities for the children which are changed frequently, there is always something new to engage him. The staff know my son well and always give me a full break down of his day. My son loves nursery and whenever I mention it he has a big smile on his face.

Our daughter absolutely loves Belle Vue Nursery. She started in January 2017 having moved from another local Nursery. All staff were very welcoming and friendly and the transition was seamless.
We have a fantastic relationship with staff at the Nursery. They are always happy to help and chat and know all the children very well. Our daughter is happy and confident and enjoys her time in Nursery. Her social skills have developed greatly since she started and her numeracy and welsh is amazing. She knows more welsh than us!!
Our youngest daughter will start the nursery later in the year as our eldest goes to school and I am so glad as we love being part of such a lovely Nursery.

Three of our children have attended Belle Vue nursery first being in 2013 and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Belle Vue provides a home from home setting with amazing staff who care for the children as us parents do ourselves. The children love going to Belle Vue and I've always had full confidence in knowing if an issue arises I can contact the staff and get it sorted straight away. The structure and routine they provide for the children really do help them feel like they know where they are and what's happening.

My daughter started Belle Vue nursery at 2.5.

I was really worried about how the transition of starting a new nursery would have on her but the staff at Belle Vue were very welcoming and immediately took her under there wing.

The staff were really positive towards her and encouraged her to come into nursery and be part of the class.

I noticed a big difference after a few days, she was much happier and content and enjoyed spending her time there and more importantly was happy to go to nursery.

I would regularly phone the nursery to ask how she was doing & the staff were great, they were very informative and answered any questions I had.

Over the months I noticed big changes, her speech had improved, her confidence, social skills and cognitive skills were all better. I was really happy to see such a big change in her in such a short time.

My daughter has really embraced the Welsh
Language and enjoys singing and speaking Welsh.

I would definitely recommend Belle Vue nursery to anyone!

My little girl (nearly 2) has been coming once a week since June and she settled in really quick. I was quite shocked, the girls in the tweenie room obviously had a brilliant connection with her and made her feel really comfortable. Leaving your child is always hard at the start and I didn't have any worries about leaving her at Belle Vue nursery. I am pleased with the nursery and everyone that works in there.

Belle Vue have now looked after both my children (Now Aged 8 and 4) since they were 6 months old when I returned to work. Both of my sons have had a wonderful and valuable experience whilst attending the nursery and learned many things that as a working parent I simply do not have the time to teach in great detail. The staff are friendly, welcoming and understanding of all children's needs. They are helpful in any situation and I know both my sons came on leaps and bounds during their time at Belle Vue. My eldest was prepared in the best way to start school and when my youngest leaves to start school this year we will miss the Nursery very much but I know he will also have had the best start possible!
Would highly recommend Belle Vue to any parent within the area looking for the highest quality of childcare available!

Fantastic nursery with wonderful staff who really care about children’s health, happiness and development. Extremely accommodating and I have complete faith and trust in leaving my child with them. My child is also very happy in being dropped off and left and always has a lovely day. My child is quite a fussy eater but always eats all food given. Nursery always seems very clean and tidy. I feel as though my daughter has come on a lot with walking, talking and personal development in general since going to nursery and believe it’s definitely down to the staff and facilities.

Very very happy with Belle Vue Nursery. The staff are welcoming and really put me at ease when it came to sending my child to nursery. They work alongside me with regards to routines at home and are always happy to try new things. The staff here are very knowledgeable when it comes to my child's allergies and I know he's safe in their hands.
I am very pleased with the opportunities provided for my child to learn, grow and develop on a daily basis.

My child started at the nursery when he turned one and although this was a difficult time for all of us the staff were absolutely amazing at helping him settle and in reassuring me that he was ok. He has now moved from the baby room to Tweenies and is happy and developing really well. The staff are all so kind, happy and caring, he does lots of different activities every day and he LOVES the food. I wouldn’t send my child anywhere else and even if I wasn’t working I would want him to go to get the benefit of being around other children his own age in a lovely environment.

My son started attending Belle Vue at 9 months old. He has learnt so much, he eats brilliantly thanks to their varied meals, he loves the staff and has formed wonderful relationships with them. They communicate with me on a day to day basis about his progress and I always feel comfortable that he is in capable and caring hands.

My child has been attending here since the age of one and she loves attending babas as she calls it. She loves all the staff and she has developed into an independent, intelligent toddler. I'll be putting my other child into this nursery when I go back to work and wouldn't put her anywhere else.

My son has been going to this nursery for almost a year now. When he started he wasn't used to being taken care of by anyone else but myself. I was super anxious sending him to nursery but seeing all the effort and they way the girls handled him mad me so relaxed. He loves going to nursery and the development is just amazing. I am so thankful for the girls looking after my son so well. I would highly recommend this amazing nursery!

I'm so glad that I chose Belle Vue to send my son. I have I seen my little one come on leaps and bounds since attending this nursery. The staff are fantastic with my son and carry out a lot of activities with him throughout the day. They are friendly and approachable and made my sons first experience of being left with people he was unfamiliar with such an easy and pleasant experience. I would recommend this nursery to anyone who is considering childcare for their children.
