Reviews

8.5 Valley Nursery has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.455)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Valley Nursery 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 Valley Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.967 for Valley Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.967

  • 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 3.488 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Valley Nursery 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.238

  • 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 Valley Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

Both my children have been attending valley nursery since 9-10 months old. The staff are exceptional, great relationships between children and staff and excellent communication with parents. Valley Nursery is constantly striving to improve and take parents suggestions. The nursery is clean with plenty of toys/activities to stimulate the children. I feel 100% confident leaving my children in the capable hands of the staff and I am thankful to have them. I can not praise the management and staff enough for the progress and development my children have made since attending the nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

The staff are outstanding, the rapport they build with the children and parents/guardians is amazing. My son was very shy and vocal/crying and would not leave me/husband/nan, but since he has been at Valley he waves us goodbye, no more clinging and crying. Any new developments or routines we have at home they continue at nursery, new words, little habits, they encourage anything he does whilst at nursery is recorded in a diary. Communication is key to any young children development and Valley promote this extensively. They are very diverse in different culture and celebrate all religions which teaches quality at a young age ready for school.

My daughter has been at Valley nursery for 1 year now, and attends twice a week.
The nursery has a lovely modern layout, great facilities, a well equipped garden and is always lovely and clean. I have never had a worry about my daughters quality of care, she always looks forward to nursery days, and has a great relationship with all of the nursery staff who are brilliant! A daily record of her day is kept in her diary, including all food she's eaten that day.
Overall this is a really lovely nursery that I would highly recommend to everyone!
