The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for The Willows Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 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.
The Average Rating of 5 for The Willows Day 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 1.552 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Willows Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.104 , then divided by 2 = 0.052

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Adele G (Mother of Child) on Friday 29 July 2016. Relates to July 2016.
My boys are 4 years and 6 years. We have now been at the nursery for just over a year and we have had nothing but great experiences there. When my boys joined they were shy and would cry every time I leave but every time there was someone's loving arms to cuddle them and to guide them towards being independent. Now one year later I have two boys that are super independent who loves going to nursery and would not stop talking about the people and what they have done at the nursery when we pick them up. Each member of staff and the Manager are nothing short of angels. They will make time for you regardless of how busy they are. Moving my children from a childminder (which I thought would be better) to the nursery is the best decision I have ever made. On top of that they have a excellent range of meals and listening to the children a very special chef. I can with a open heart recommend Willows. You cannot go wrong by bringing your child here.
