Rockmount Nurseries has a Review Score of 5 (5.000)
The Review Score of 5 (maximum of 10) for Rockmount Nurseries is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rockmount Nurseries in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 Rockmount Nurseries 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rockmount Nurseries is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Salma A (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 14 July 2015. Relates to April 2015.
This nursery was a blessing to me and my husband at a time where I was in a great panic about leaving my son. The very first visit put my mind at rest. The manager and the rest of the ladies who work here are very knowledgeable. They assured me that the free settling period would be at my son's pace which was very helpful. My son had no English but this did not seem a problem as I thought as the nursery used a lot of visual information and took a lot of time to reassure him. As the nursery is very small they were able to give him time with one of the teachers to develop his English and now he is progressing well.
The nursery sit's in a little park and has lovely views for my son to see all day. He goes out at least twice a day. The nursery has their own garden and they also have the play-park on their doorstep.
My son loves coming to nursery and always comes home with a variety of pictures and paintings that he has done. There are lots of toys and these seem to get renewed a lot. The nursery is bright and clean which I find very important (some nurseries I visited I found to be quite smelly and dirty looking).
We are vegetarians and the nursery has always made him delicious lunches (all of which are included into the price).
All in all the nursery has made my time in Glasgow easy! I can leave my child and go on to study without worrying about my son.
I would recommend this nursery to everybody.
