Reviews

9 Corner House Nursery Spylaw has a Review Score of 9 (8.974)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Corner House Nursery Spylaw is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Corner House Nursery Spylaw in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.583 for Corner House Nursery Spylaw is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.391 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Corner House Nursery Spylaw 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.391

  • 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 has been with the nursery now for a few months and she absolutely loves it. I cannot recommend it enough. The staff are lovely and I always receive a very detailed report at the end of the day. My daughter has a great bond with the staff which is lovely to see. There are always plenty of activities going on within the nursery for the children to enjoy.

We have found Corner House to be an excellent nursery. Our child enjoys the activities. They have a large garden up front and I often arrive to find my son engrossed in some activity before he realises I'm there. Indoors they have many different areas and activities and he enjoys playing in each of them. They have several rooms so I know he gets a lot of variety. Lunch is provided and they happily accommodate his dietary restriction (an allergy). He enjoys the food and often wants seconds! The staff are very helpful and caring.

My daughter's been attending for just under a year, she settled in at 10 months old and had just moved from the baby to the toddler room.
I couldn't be happier with the nursery - the staff go above and beyond in their caring duties, the food provided is great quality, fresh and nutritious, and the activities provided are amazing.
Huge outdoor space that all of the children use throughout the year, but mostly in the spring and summer.
Can't recommend the nursery highly enough. I love that we can see her progress online using the Learning Journal system too.
Management can be quite hard to get hold of via email/phone but there's always someone there in the office during drop-off/pick-up for queries or concerns.

My 1-year-old daughter loves Corner House Nursery. She is able to do all kinds of exciting activities that we wouldn't be able to do with her at home thanks to the excellent facilities.
She is provided with a delicious lunch every day, and she seems very happy with all the staff. She also has an online learning journal we can access to find out about what she has been doing. I have no concerns at all leaving her here and would definitely recommend this nursery.

Staff are lovely and take a genuine interest in the children. They seem to do lots of different activities with them. My son certainly learns a lot at the nursery. Perhaps more time could be spent outside in the garden when the weather permits.

Our toddler started at the nursery when she was 11 months old and since then we have been very happy with the care she has been given.
All the staff we have met are really lovely and good and we feel reassure that she is in good hands.

The Corner House Day Nursery has been a 'home away from home' for both our children. Knowing our children are safe, happy and achieving is of great importance to us, and we are very confident that this is the case to us, and we are very confident that this is the case at Corner House Day Nursery.
Our children are known by all the staff, not just the key worker. Upon arrival each day it is so reassuring to experience such a welcoming environment. The staff are actively engaged in delivering a varied programme of activities each day. There are a range of cultural experiences celebrated and our children are encouraged to be responsible citizens. The manager is exceptional - always putting the needs of the children first!

Corner House is to me personally the best place for my child to be at. Staff are fantastic, attending to his needs so carefullt. Hew always has something nice to say about the teachers when he comes home. What impresses me the most is the fact that they are always ready to go the extra mile to support with his development (customising activities and rewards to meet certain expectations).
He feels loved by the teachers and tells us different staff are his best friends!! When he has difficulties due to a new sibling in the family, he was being offered extra care and support to help go through this chapter. On a day off he will ask to go to nursery! Says it all to us!

We have only been for two months at this nursery (so many of the options below are not applicable yet) We and our daughter are very happy with the staff, and she has adapted very rapidly. The kids always seem to be happy (at least the little ones) and they have a range of activities/toys to play with. The staff also were very receptive to any special requirements or last minute changes, overall we are very pleased.
