Reviews

9 Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school has a Review Score of 9 (9.036)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 6 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 4.736 for Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.736

  • 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 4.3 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on 6 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.300

  • 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 loves her days spent at Chrysalis Nursery. The staff are all so friendly, helpful and approachable. I feel my daughter is in a safe, caring and fun environment. The emphasis on learning through play is fantastic and there is always a wide variety of activities for the children. My daughter especially loves taking part in music and movement and stretch and grow, playing in the home corner and dressing up. I couldn't be happier with the progress my daughter has made since joining Chrysalis Nursery and I would highly recommend Chrysalis Nursery to friends and family.

My son has settled very well into his toddler class at Chrysalis Nursery. He is very attached to his key worker. When I drop him off he happily waves goodbye. He eats well and naps very well so I feel these factors show how settled he is. He has grown in confidence, develops new words and skills each day and is becoming more independent too. We are delighted at the care, support and feedback we get about him.

Happy with the current syllabus for pre-school and preparation for starting school.
Also, appreciate that parents are getting involved with phonic homework and writing skills.
I would, however, like to see more physical activities in nursery/preschool e.g sports days getting kids more active outdoors.

I have had 4 years experience of Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school as I have had 2 boys attend since babies. I cannot praise the nursery/pre-school enough. My eldest child had additional needs and they could not be more supportive and helpful in meeting his care needs. The staff are excellent with the children, always patient and cheerful and they always have time for the parents. The learning environment provided is excellent and this was evident when my eldest attended reception in mainstream school. My two boys have always loved going to nursery/preschool and I cannot recommend their service highly enough. Excellent day care facilities.

My son has attended Chrysalis Day Nursery & Pre-school since 2014 and we have been extremely pleased with the level of care received at the nursery and pre-school. The staff are excellent and extremely supportive and cater for my son's needs. My son has a younger sibling who attends the nursery as well and the standards are exceptional both in terms of the staff and the premises. I would highly recommend.

This is a caring nursery, who constantly pay attention to the children in their care. I know at the end of each day how my child has been, what he has eaten and what he did during the day.
I feel my son is looked after and having a lovely day. I am so lucky and thankful to the ladies in the nursery who all work so hard looking after my son.
