The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Spring Nursery First Steps Allenton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 5 for Spring Nursery First Steps Allenton is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 59 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:

    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 4.439 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Spring Nursery First Steps Allenton 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.439

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

Reviewer Connection to Spring Nursery First Steps Allenton

My daughter absolutely loves this nursery, she would attend every day if she could. I myself am extremely happy with not just the nursery but the staff also. They greet the children every morning individually and are quick to tell you how their day has been at the end of the day. I feel very comfortable speaking to the staff about anything to do with my child and I couldn’t wish for better.

We are really pleased with the nursery. Our son was one that would just play and be on his own all the time and he couldn't speak very well and since he joined here they have helped him loads and we couldn't be any more grateful for all the help.

My two children attend the nursery. My son has additional needs which the nursery team never found an issue and have helped me and my son so he can attend school with his peers at the correct time. I would highly recommend the nursey as it's a fun, friendly and welcoming environment. The staff are fantastic and always willing to help and offer advice if needed. My children are both very happy here and I'll be sad for my son to leave.
