Reviews

8.4 Cardonald Private Nursery has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.355)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Cardonald Private 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cardonald Private Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.819 for Cardonald Private Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (120 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.819

  • 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 3.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cardonald Private Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.286

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

I have had my two daughters in Cardonald Nursery since March 2016, from day one I have had no problems what so ever and both my girls have developed hugely since starting. My oldest has just gone to school, more than ready, which is all thanks to the team in the nursery. My other daughter is now two and I constantly get comments on how good a talker she is, how she knows colours, counting and has come on so well since starting! The staff have always kept me informed on what they're learning etc and what I would like them to improve on. My two girls have had four key workers and we have loved them, along with the other staff they work great together as a team. All of the team have great relationships with the children and it is great to know your kids are happy in the nursery. I would highly recommend!

My son went to this nursery for nearly 2 years... I have to admit I wasn't a fan of this nursery at first, and the owners were not very nice to me as a father... and I think they as owners need to take a good look at themselves and behaviour.
Big positives are the management and the team, they really help the children develop, they notice disabilities and help parents, the child, and governing body's with support and development of all the children.
The graduation at the end of the children nursery time is a well organised event, which does the staff, nursery and importantly the children proud.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery 100%, to any parents.
Thank you to the manager and team for what you did for my son.

My child has been attending Cardonald Private Nursery for approx 1 year. When he first started he was very shy and reluctant to join in with any other children - the staff have worked alongside me and my partner to make sure our wee boy achieves all of his milestones. He is now such a confident, chatty wee boy and it's all thanks to the hard work of the staff.

I started my son in Cardonald a year ago as I felt he wasn't the most confident little boys and had to interact with other children. It took him a while to settle in but the staff where all so good with him and from this my son is very outgoing and interacts and plays well with other children and has a great personality. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough and also the staff they have.

Cardonald nursery has developed my child so much in the 4 years she has attended. The staff provide a very high level of care and education within the nursery. I am always kept up to date on my little ones progress. My little girl runs into nursery more than happy to be left there. The manager is always happy to help me out if my shifts change and she does an amazing job at running Cardonald nursery.

We are likely to recommend the nursery as we can only base it on our child being there 2 days a week. We feel that our child has come on a lot since being there for the last 6 months. The care provided to our child we cannot fault. However there is always room for improvement. We appreciate what the Nursery provides to our child.

My son has been attending this nursery for a while now and I can say that the staff incorporate and consistently plan, implement and evaluate new activities for your child to suit their needs and development stages. As a parent I feel that I am completely involved in all aspects of my child's care and welfare. The staff here are very approachable, professional and knowledgeable whom have great relationships with all of the children and their families.
This nursery is constantly adding to their great outdoor play facilities.
Can't recommend this nursery enough, I feel my son is in good hands and his needs are met whilst at this nursery and he has many friends here!
