b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 3.375 for Playdays Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (8 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 3.375
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:
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.
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.
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 1.525 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Playdays Nursery School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.050 , then divided by 2 = 0.025

I regularly pick up two children from this nursery. The children absolutely love it. The facilities are fantastic and the staff are all very friendly. The children always seem to have had a busy fun filled day.
The outdoor garden area is lovely and has lots of room for planting. The Pre-school room also has great facilities.
Fantastic standard of care.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Juliet D (Mother of Child) on Wednesday 30 March 2016. Relates to March 2016.
Very bad service, they only care about making money. I went to collect my 23 month old son one day and it was a very cold day. The staff member handed me the child out in the garden without his jacket on, my poor baby was very cold and got ill eventually. That day I handed my notice. Very disappointed but also happy that my child will not go to this nursery again.
