The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Halton) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Halton) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.818 for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Halton) is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.818

  • 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 3.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Halton) is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.214

  • 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 Sunbeams Day Nursery (Halton)

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has been going to this nursery for 10 months, she started when I went back to work following my maternity leave. I can honestly say the staff made this transaction for myself and my daughter so much easier to deal with. They helped my daughter to learn to have fun without me there and allowed me to ring and get an update on how her day was going whenever I wanted. This means I was able to still feel involved in her day.
Since she started, I feel she has improved in all areas of her development, she has gained so much confidence and is a very happy little girl.
The nursery staff are very good at keeping myself and my partner up to date, communicating with us using both written and verbal methods.
Every member of staff we have dealt with have been friendly, professional, and caring.
I could not imagine my daughter being anymore cared for and I believe they are fully deserving of their outstanding achievement awarded to them by Ofsted.

My child really enjoys nursery, although he does have some separation issues with me on a morning, the staff at Sunbeams are always extremely patient with him.
His social and communicational development have really come on.
Thank you, everyone, at Sunbeams.

My daughter goes to Halton sunbeams and I have to say that it is an absolutely amazing nursery. She has come on leaps and bounds since being there. She started in the baby room and is now in preschool. All the staff know all the children's names and you really feel the personal touch when there. Such a friendly and warm environment and it definitely gets her seal of approval as she loves going there! Would recommend without hesitation to any of my family and friends!

My daughter has been coming here since September and from the minute we started our meetings I immediately knew I'd made the right decision. I just loved how much care they immediately had for her wanting to know everything about her and her ways to enable them to care for her, they said any requests for care I had that they would be happy to cater for. The girls that care for my girl are all lovely and she's bonded really nicely with a few of them, the girls really develop the kids and always tell me knew things she has learnt or equally spot when my girls not being the same, they are fab with change too, as my daughter grows her needs change and the past few weeks I've made a few changes and all the girls communicate with each other what the change is (I don't always drop my daughter off so I'm not there to tell them directly, that's why writing in their books really works). We've had an excellent experience with the nursery and I go to work knowing my little girl is in really good hands.

My one year old son started nursery full time in September and he absolutely loves it. He is developing so well and learning so many things which is down to the ladies who work here. All the staff are polite and very welcoming and even when they don't work with my son they all know his name. It's a brilliant environment for all children and they make it easier for me to leave him knowing that he is enjoying him days there and is in safe hands. I couldn't have picked a better nursery for him. Thank you.

The girls put you at ease straight away. They are professional and you can tell they love children. Our little boy runs into the nursery and always seems so happy there. We have had no issues and it's made the transition to being full time working parents easier.

This is an amazing nursery. The staff create a great environment for the kids. My little boy has been attending since he was nine months, he's now 2 and a half and absolutely loves it. My second son will start in March and due to the gradual transition of taster visits, and the way the staff make you feel at ease, I know this will be a very easy process.

My daughter was cared for by the staff at Sunbeams in Halton from the age of 10 months until she started school this year. She loved everyday and always came home with lots of stories or pictures from her day. It is only since she started in school that I have really been able to appreciate how much she was learning whilst also having fun. Despite being one of the youngest in her class, the foundation that Sunbeams gave her is helping her thrive! We all miss the friendly pick ups and drop offs and I am very grateful for the friendly flexibility they offered to me whilst also juggling an older child and work commitments.

We have been so thrilled with the care that our daughter has received at Sunbeams. The fact that she is always eager to go is a testament in itself. Any issues we have had have been dealt with promptly and to a very high standard, they take the individual needs of the child and family very seriously.
