Reviews

9.8 Ripples Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.807)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Ripples Pre-school 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ripples Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.807 for Ripples Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.807

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ripples Pre-school is based on 7 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target Reached = 1

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

From the settling in period, I noticed that the nursery makes every child comfortable and happy. The staff are very friendly and my 2 years old Twins just settled in very easily.
They became more confident and we are amazed at the level of their vocabularies, and choice of words. They express themselves more than their age mates and we notice the good manners they acquire from the school.
They learnt very fast and always look forward to going to the nursery. They love the football and singing sections a lot. They teach us some of their songs and activities whenever they come back from the nursery.
They started with 2 days a week but we increased it by one day since we saw the great positive impacts on them generally.

We absolutely love Ripples Pre-School and our son does too. He has been made to feel so comfortable there and has gone from a shy child to a fairly confident one. He particularly loves the football and music that are provided. The staff are all great, particularly the manager who updates us even if our son had gone in a bit tearful, it feels like a personal service.

My nearly three year old boy attends the preschool once a week and loves it! He struggled to settle in initially, but the staff helped him to overcome it quickly and now he looks forward to his ' school day', He learns a lot and has made new friends. They do a lot fun educational activities and fabulous football and singing classes.

My daughter attends the preschool only once a week at the moment. It was difficult for her to get used to it at first but the staff were very helpful and in no time my daughter began to love it. She now enjoys it very much. No problem with leaving her in the morning and she always looks happy when I am picking her up. I would definitely be happy to leave her there for more days if I need to in the future.

Great nursery! All the staff have been lovely and welcoming from day 1, my daughter feels so comfortable there and we will be sad to go when she starts school. Food is always nutritious and my little one always leaves smiling and happy, she has also made lots of friends which is lovely to see. Highly recommend!
