The Review Score of 5 (maximum of 10) for Big Bird Nursery 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 Big Bird Nursery 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 Big Bird Nursery 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 Big Bird Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Lorraine M (Grandmother of Child) on Monday 24 August 2015. Relates to August 2015.
My Grandson has attended Big Bird since he was 9 months old. The care and detail that goes in to individual children's learning needs is outstanding. Children are encouraged to take calculated risks and have the opportunity to work with real tools within the construction areas and have a very hands on approach to learning. The environment supports creativity and innovation with excellent use of outdoor space. I couldn't recommend this establishment enough. My grandson will be continuing with the Big Bird Hub out of school care during the holidays. The care reports on this establishment are a true reflection of the high quality care that takes place here. Management are so flexible to the busy changing needs of family, they really are a great support.
