Reviews

9.6 Leehurst Swan School has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.594)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Leehurst Swan School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Leehurst Swan School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 5 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 4.9 for Leehurst Swan School is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.9

  • 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 4.694 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Leehurst Swan School is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.694

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

For me, the true measure of excellence is demonstrated on how setbacks and adversity are handled.

I raised concerns before about pre-prep and I have to say that they have been handled constructively and professionally with a sincere acknowledgement and apology. The team has been extremely responsive and improvements are clearly evident. My trust in the staff and institution has been re-instated. Indeed, our children love attending! Thank you Leehurst Swan.

The nannies seem to genuinely care about the children's development and wellbeing. I love that the children spend time outdoors whatever the weather. Our daughter seems very happy there and I am sure she has benefitted from attending the nest.

My son and daughter have been attending Leehurst since September 2016. The care they have received has been phenomenal. The staff are brilliant and attentive and are always willing to give my very sensitive boy a cuddle! I feel confident leaving both my children at Leehurst knowing they are receiving exceptional care.
