Reviews

9.5 Hilltop Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.516)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Hilltop Day Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hilltop Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.683 for Hilltop Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.683

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hilltop Day Nursery 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.833

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

My son has been at this nursery for just over 2 years and still loves going! All staff are excellent and we are kept informed of everything. Very supportive and flexible nursery that has the personal touch, unlike some larger nurseries.

Hilltop is a wonderful place. My daughter is really happy here. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming and I've never had any issues with the care given to my daughter. The setting is good, plenty for the children to do. They always have a wide variety of meals meaning my daughter is trying new foods and is always happy with her food. The nursery is great value for money and the staff are very understanding and flexible when it comes to hours. I enjoy the regular updates on my daughter's progress and enjoy reading about what she has done each day. I would highly recommend Hilltop Day Nursery and I'm looking forward to my daughter hopefully staying here now until school.

We visited 1 other day nursery before signing up for this one as the previous one was no comparison.
This place was and is very welcoming and friendly and has a very relaxed and fun atmosphere for the kid's which has helped my very shy daughter settle in without much trouble.
All staff seem to really enjoy being around kid's and my daughter is always so happy and excited when I collect her at the end of the day
