  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.729 for Four Seasons At Spectrum is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 3.355 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Four Seasons At Spectrum 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 19 positive Reviews (95 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 19 Target = 0.105

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

The Spectrum Nursery is a great, friendly, welcoming, safe environment. The children undertake a range of activities on a daily basis. There is also an outside area which is covered so the children can get outside playtime in all weathers. The staff are very friendly and our daughter is very happy here.

My experience with the nursery has been very good so far. The teachers really helped my child to feel comfortable with nursery and other children. The food provided is very good. Teachers pay personal attention to children and take parent's feedback seriously. They encourage children in participating in various activities.

Marianne Brolly

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2017

Description:

Hi, my name is Marianne Brolly and I have worked in the Early Years sector for over 19 years.
I became involved in child care when my children started school, through an initiative set out by South Lanarkshire Council, the programme was to high light the importance off Early Intervention in a child’s learning.
I completed my NC and HNC gaining experience in a variety of different establishment and working with children age range birth to 12 years. I have a strong knowledge of Curriculum for excellence and pre-birth to three.
I started as a nursery nurse and have worked my way up, successfully delivered a highly stimulation of learning. I believe children should have a loving and safe learning environment where practitioners hold high expectations for all children resulting in children being highly engaged throughout their day at nursery.

I have been in a management role for 14 years working in different types of establishments such as a Gaelic Nursery and a Montessori nursery to name a few. During my time, I completed a Level 4 in Childhood practice and I then completed an assessor course in a level 3 this allowed me to assist the staff that were completing their child care qualification.
Last year I completed my BA in Childhood practice. I have gained a wealth of experience during my training and work life. All of which I will put into the management of Spectrum Day Nursey. I am very passionate about childcare and my goal is to promote high quality learning for all. I will endeavour to provide the highest level of care and learning with the support from parents and staff.
In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with family and my beautiful granddaughter.
I am looking forward to working with parents, children and staff at Spectrum Day Nursery. Working together to provide a safe and secure environment for all the children to learn and play.
