  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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.

  • 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 1.533 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jolly Rodgers Day Nursery Ltd incorporating Jollypirates PreSchool is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 15.2 positive Reviews (76 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15.2 Target = 0.066 , then divided by 2 = 0.033

Reviewer Connection to Jolly Rodgers Day Nursery Ltd incorporating Jollypirates PreSchool

  • Mother of Child
    2

My eldest son has been attending the day nursery for almost two years and my youngest son has recently started. Both of them love it and clearly look forward to going - we couldn't ask for more than that!.

The staff do a wonderful job and are clearly devoted to looking after all of the children and the manager is so friendly and approachable and always flexible to our changing childcare requirements.

The facilities both indoor and out are excellent with updates and theme changes happening regularly to keep the babies and toddlers interested. A lot of effort clearly goes into the monthly themes.

My eldest has recently been potty trained and all of the toddler staff were very supportive with that especially during the difficult early weeks.

The nursery regularly has outings and charity events so there is always plenty going on to get involved in and we are kept well informed with the website and monthly newsletters.

Jolly Rodgers care for my 3 children; 1 with a severe learning disability and 1 who had a liver transplant a year ago (7 months old). The staff are fantastic and I cant praise them enough. They are prepared to take on any challenge and always show my kids the love and attention they need and encourage their development in such a positive manner. They don't over react when my wee girl falls ill and manage her condition extremely well. There was no fuss around her liver transplant (which was stressful enough for me) and they worked with the community nurses and I to ensure my little girls needs were/are met.
My eldest son (11) has been at Jolly Rodgers since he was 3. Nowhere else would take him as he had behavioural difficulties - he was expelled by a 'health trust' nursery just before his 2nd birthday. Jolly Rodgers gave him a chance and he has loved it there. He has to leave when he turns 12 and we are very sad that this has to happen as he enjoys spending his school holidays and after school time here.
My middle son (4) has been there since he was 6 months old and loves going to Jolly Rodgers and now attends their preschool programme. He has built positive relationships with his peers and the staff and this is down to the hard work of the staff at Jolly Rodgers.
Staff are extremely sensible, professional and caring. I can go to work without the fear that my children are hating their nursery or are being treated unfairly. Staff do teach right/wrong and discipline the children accordingly but fairly. My children have lots of fun while they are learning and often surprise me with what they have achieved- again this is down to the staff. Jolly Rodgers is like an extension of our family now.
Jolly Rodgers offer a range of activities within and outside the building- swimming, jo jingles, trips to the cinema, parks, farms etc. They have a large outside area for the children of all ages to enjoy. If I had any concerns (which I never have) I know the staff would listen to me and try and rectify it. The manager, is a fantastic person and tries to help in anyway she can.
My children experience foods that I would not necessarily buy for home and they enjoy the freshly cooked varied meals. Jolly Rodgers do deserve a medal as the staff go way above of what anyone would expect from a day care provider. Well done girls and thank you so much for taking such great care of my kiddies :)
