Reviews

9.6 Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.564)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Argyle Bridge Children's 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 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 4.786 for Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (69 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.786

  • 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 4.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery is based on 7 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.778

  • 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 it here she didn't get on well at a previous nursery so moved her to Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery. I was worried she wouldn't settle here either but she has settled amazingly and actually looks forward to going to nursery now.

I would highly recommend ABC Nursery to anyone who was looking for a good nursery for their child. My son has attended since he was 1 (is now 4 1/2) and he has always required additional support and care needs. The level of care they have given him has been paramount in his overall development. The staff that work in the nursery are all so lovely and enthusiastic, but the thing that earns my trust is that you can tell that every single one of them truly enjoys their jobs and want the best for the kids in their care. My only wish is that they would have their own school, as I will be reluctant to have him move on to P1 at the local public school. I, at least know, he was given the best start possible by attending Argyle Bridge.

My daughter loves her nursery. The numbers are small which made for a very smooth introduction from home life to nursery life. All staff are caring and attentive and the individual needs of the children are met.

A fantastic nursery that has set both my boys up for school fantastically. A real mix of class and outdoor play with trips to local attractions. As an example of going the extra mile, each spring they incubate eggs from the farm and raise the chicks in class.

A really wonderful environment for children of all ages.

The nursery is a great environment for my son he started when he was 11 months and the staff helped him to settle in really well! He has been able to build great relationships with staff and the other children in the nursery.
He is provided with great learning opportunities throughout the day and enjoys being able to access the outdoor area throughout the day.
He always enjoys nursery snack and lunch often trying new things! The staff take on board what we have been doing at the weekend and always bring something relevant to what he has done into the room. I appreciate that they take such a vested interest in what he does from week to week and celebrate his achievements!
We get a great overview of his day by being able to access his online learning journal and there are lots of opportunities for us as parents to be involved with the nursery such as reviewing the lunch menu, the changing of the room names and through the parent's committee open forums where all parents are welcome!

This is an excellent family-run nursery. We have a long history with the nursery with one/both of our sons having been to Argyle Bridge Children's Nursery since 2011 and the standard of care has been fantastic. Our oldest son was diagnosed with a serious medical condition and we feared we might have to leave the nursery but they were wonderful and worked exceptionally hard to meet his needs.
Our youngest son is in the preschool room at the minute and is thriving. I am amazed every week at what he can do.
The staff have been there for years and I cannot praise them enough, this is the best nursery by far in the area.
