Reviews

8 Rascals Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.043)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Rascals Day 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rascals Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 Rascals Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 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:

    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 3.043 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rascals Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 23.2 positive Reviews (116 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 23.2 Target = 0.043

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

My daughter has been going here since August 2016 when she was 11months old and I don't have a single bad word to say, the staff are alway attentive and interacting with the kids. Centre play is brilliant and gives the kids the much needed physical activity that they need to grow. The menu is the best menu I've ever seen in a nursery and my daughter loves it. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

My daughter has been at Rascals Circular Road for 2 years and continues to love it, asking if she is going to see her friends each day.
The staff really make the nursery, they are very professional and friendly and take a genuine interest in my child - even anyone you meet in the corridor will speak to us and make a fuss over her.
The range of activities seems fabulous, with lots of messy play, outside times, dough, singing, stories, etc. There is also an indoor physical area that my daughter loves called centre play as well as a library area upstairs where the children can go at group times.
I love the fact I can see how her day is progressing while I am at work. Rascals has an online system that I can access from work to see how her day is going - I love when photos are posted to see her at play.
The other thing I love is the range of foods my daughter will eat now, the food smells great in the morning as I drop off and I know she eats everything on her plate.
I would definitely recommend Rascals!
