Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 Gershwin Park Nursery School (Seymour House, Witham) is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 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 3.402 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gershwin Park Nursery School (Seymour House, Witham) is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.152

My daughter has thrived since joining Gershwin Park under the care and supervision of the team there. We have always been kept informed of her development and the relationship between staff and children is a truely special one. As a new mum, I felt apprehensive about handing her over to ‘strangers’ but I very quickly realised how passionate about her care that the team were and have every confidence that she is in the best hands. I would not hesitate to recommend Gershwin Park to anyone.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time at Gershwin Park Nursery. The staff are wonderful, very nurturing and my daughter has progressed well since joining the setting. The staff provide stimulating activities which capture my daughter's interests - so much so that she talks about her nursery day constantly. From making spaceships from junk modelling to the shape hunt in the garden, the staff work hard to ensure the activities are fun and exciting.

As one parent to another, if you are seeking childcare, I would strongly suggest you take a look at this Nursery. You will not be disappointed.
