Reviews

7.9 RIMU Music Nursery has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.896)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for RIMU Music Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for RIMU Music Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.771 for RIMU Music Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.771

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for RIMU Music Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

Both of our children (one entering year 4, the other starting school this year) have attended RIMU Music Preparatory School & Nursery and the care they received over that time has never been anything short of excellent. The nursery is a calm, caring environment where the children are encouraged to develop at their own pace. Lots of structured activities are provided - street dance, gymnastics, singing, but there's also time for the children to play and form their own personalities. Watching them play together outside of nursery, it is clear that they are all very fond of each other.

Excellent nursery my son came here from the age of 2 until he left for school. Lots of things to do and good little trips to the local library. Staff were lovely but only complaint is that it is a high turn over of staff so children see lots of people come and go.

Alison, Manager at RIMU Music Nursery responded to this review on 07 Nov 2016:

Thank you for your review and feedback.
I would like to add that that the staff turnover was due to one member of staff relocating, one deciding to further their career in a managerial position and another utilising a teaching degree in a school environment. This was no reflection of the setting. Thank you again for your comments we really appreciate it.

Small friendly nursery, high volume of experienced and enthusiastic staff. Very well structured day with external teachers daily to provide ballet, gymnastics and drama lessons. Good variety of food, everything looks clean and the children seem very well cared for and happy.

This is an excellent nursery. My older daughter has been attending since November 2013 and the younger one since July 2015 and we continue being extremely satisfied with the care provided. The staff are very friendly and develop great rapport with both children and parents. Each child is encouraged to develop confidence and individuality whist engaging in a multitude of group activities and play. The children get a singing, gymnastics, ballet, drama or street dance class with a professional teacher every day which my daughters love. The meals provided are balanced and varied. We feel very fortunate to have such a great nursery in our area.
