Reviews

7.9 YMCA Pre-school Newtown has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.931)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for YMCA Pre-school Newtown is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for YMCA Pre-school Newtown in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 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 4.348 for YMCA Pre-school Newtown is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.348

  • 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 3.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for YMCA Pre-school Newtown 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.333

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

My daughter currently attends this nursery from April 2017. We are very impressed throughout the months since she has started. On the whole, it has been a wonderful place for her to grow and develop. She has been really happy, although at times chooses to have days she doesn't want to go in. The staff members are very efficient in how they handle the situation and divert her attention by providing fun activities. Even from initial settling in sessions, which was hard for me and my daughter as separation anxiety kicks in, we found the staff to be very supportive and willing to listen to any concerns about our daughter. We had regular feedback from the staff. Tapestry has been introduced more recently and we have enjoyed this form of feedback. There is a lot of creativity in the activities that the children do and therefore will prove to be beneficial for my child's growth academically and physically. A great starting point for any child to prosper. Thank you YMCA and all the staff.
