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 4.813 for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton is calculated as follows: ( (250 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 299 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton is based on 19 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 17.2 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.

The staff are extremely helpful, professional and friendly.

Our daughter enjoys her time at the nursery and this is down to the lovely staff in the baby room.

We appreciate the staff taking the time to get to know our daughter's likes and dislikes when she first started in October this meant her settling in was a smooth process.

Well done.

I am very pleased with the care given at Shooting Stars Nurseries. My baby is 10 months old and has settled very quickly in the baby room. The staff is caring and very hard-working. My baby enjoys the food given and seems to be eating everything given. I visited many nurseries in Wolverhampton and this one definitely stands out!

Outstanding nursery. The staff are by far the most welcoming and lovely of every nursery I viewed! And I viewed a lot!!
They go that extra mile to keep you informed of all the developments of your child and are completely honest about things! If your child is a bit unsettled they will explain this as opposed to other nursery’s which tell you everything is perfect all the time which we know isn’t true!
They deserve recognition for there hard work x

My daughter has been attending Shooting Stars since 2015 and I can honestly say that I have always been happy with the care afforded to my daughter. All her keyworkers have been forthcoming with information and advice to ensure she has a happy experience and the staff are always very welcoming.
I would 100% recommended the nursery to family and friends and I know my daughter will miss everyone when she leaves this summer.

Before deciding to send my daughter to Shooting Stars in Wolverhampton I had viewed three other nurseries. This was the only nursery out of the 4 that made me feel like it was the right place for me to leave my 9-month-old daughter all day. I had this feeling almost instantaneously! She is 15 months old now, she is very independent, inquisitive and so much more sociable. This is thanks to the help of the work wonderful, caring staff at the nursery. It didn’t take her long to settle in and as soon as we pull up in the car park she knows exactly where she is and appears glad to be there! Thank you all at Shooting Stars for being utterly amazing!

No complaints great nursery. The nursery has a very high turnover of staff and especially in preschool, the children’s key worker is constantly changing.

Fantastic Nursery! My daughter settled in almost straight away due to the level of care and support provided. Each member of staff goes above and beyond for the children and this includes when feeding back to parents. At the end of a long day, they still show such enthusiasm and energy when feeding back.

The staff here are second to none! They are just as enthusiastic about my child's development and achievements as my partner and I are and work closely with us to ensure that my child is comfortable, happy and enjoys her time at nursery. They fully immerse themselves into doing the very best for each individual child and it's clear to see that the children in their care adore those who care for them and that the feeling is very much mutual. The Nursery provides a variety of well-balanced meals which means my daughter always has the chance to try something new. Overall I cannot fault the amazing staff.

Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton has been fantastic for my son. I really feel that by going there he is more confident and has access to such wonderful fun and games. The staff are absolutely brilliant, always offering engaging activities and working with the children to develop a fun curriculum personal to them :) Every day we receive an email with daily news and I love to be able to share my son's day with him this way, as he is mostly too exhausted to tell me himself ;) thank you so much to all of the staff at Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton.

After a slow unsettled start, with lots of love, care and support from the staff at Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton my little boy (15 months) loves coming to the nursery! The outside space is fantastic and the staff plan activities based around the children and what they enjoy. The drop offs and pick ups are made so much easier due to the warmth of the staff and the genuine care they have for the children. I would recommend this nursery to any parent!

I'm so happy with my choice of nursery for my daughter. The transition from her being at home to her spending time independently away from me at the nursery was made so easily and I think this was down to the fantastic staff at Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton. Her key worker and colleagues in her room made her feel special and welcome and although she was very shy when she started her confidence has soared and she loves going to nursery and misses it when she is not there.
It is clean, bright and welcoming. The staff always smile and say hello to you when you are passing. They are well organised and always seem to have many ideas to keep the children entertained as well as educating them along the way.
They offer a healthy balanced menu which encourages my daughter to eat a variety of foods and they make great use of the outside space daily.
Overall I am very happy with Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton and wouldn't go anywhere else.

My son has loved being at Shooting Stars. The environment, staff, other kids and layout have all helped him to thrive. He has gone through every 'stage' and has been challenged, engaged, and happy throughout. He's made friends and learnt social skills he simply wouldn't have got at home. It's bright and spacious with good security. I've recently been looking at reception schools and honestly couldn't see the difference to the nursery. Heartily recommended!

My daughter loves going to nursery and I love how much she has grown in confidence since she started there. Shooting Stars Nurseries at Wolverhampton is a lovely place for her to be. The staff are kind and friendly, they genuinely care about the children and are great at communicating with me about my daughter. They are very good at teaching manners and being kind to others. They are teaching my daughter how to write her name and they are always thinking of new ways to make learning a fun activity.

Our two children went to Shooting Stars from September 16 - December 17. My daughter was in the baby room initially and then moved through to Pre-Toddlers. My son was in Toddlers and then moved through to Pre-School and therefore we have had experience all of the rooms available. The staff at the nursery are outstanding and care deeply for the children they look after. This is clear to see when your children run to them and don't want to leave at the end of the day! It was the only nursery I felt an instant connection with as soon as we went to view it and since then have and will forever compare every nursery to it!

The rooms are large and spacious and have lots for the children to do. The outdoor space is second to none and one of the main reasons we choose the nursery.
The nursery has helped to progress and develop both of my children and I cannot thank them enough for the time and effort they put into their planning. Pre-school, in particular, is outstanding.

My son has been attending shooting stars Wolverhampton, for nearly 1 year now and I couldn't recommend it enough. He was very shy when he first went and the girls in pre-toddlers made him really come out of his shell and thrive. Now he has just moved up into toddlers, attending every day and he loves it! Everyone is really friendly there, and the staff are really accommodating. I looked at a few nurseries before choosing this one and I really feel I 100 percent chose the right one for him and for my family.

Our daughter started at Shooting Stars in the first week it opened in 2014 and it has come on leaps and bounds since then. Staff are wonderful and very caring. Our daughter has a wonderful caretaker who has wonderful balance with affection, care and maintaining discipline. My daughter always looks forward to going to nursery and we are always surprised with the amount they learn in the nursery as well. They always have wonderful activities planned through the week with a good balance of indoor and outdoor activities. Nurserycam is a great addition as it gives parents an insight into the child’s day. We have been very happy with the nursery from day one and have already recommended it to our friends.

The Shooting Stars nursery is an excellent nursery. The staff are all extremely passionate about the children they look after and they are always doing some form of activity with our sons who attend. The management of the nursery is really impressive and will often go above and beyond to make sure you and your children and looked after. My sons love going to nursery and we particularly like the friendly atmosphere we have with the staff members who work there.

My daughter only attends this nursery 1 day a week and has been doing so since April 2015. She is always happy to go there and never desperate to leave when I pick her up. All of the staff are very approachable and clearly know their stuff. The nursery has a suitably flexible approach to childcare - responding to the parents requirements as much as possible. It is obvious that the manager is a parent herself as the policies in place at the nursery are well thought through. My older son went to a different day nursery and Shooting Stars is a much better place - the staff all appear to be more competent (it was hit & miss at my son's nursery) and it is much better run.

Excellent nursery best choice we made. My son has settled really well. They have accommodated us with changes to his days being there usually 4 weeks notice did it for us within a few days. Place is so clean and tidy doesn't have that smell that other nurseries have when we visited them. Food is excellent with menus changing all the time. Will definitely choose this for our next child.

Menu is fantastic for children all home made foods. Garden area beautiful. Nursery is brand new building. Manager staff all lovely friendly support you through issues and concerns. Best choice for my son I have made. All other nurseries out there got nothing on shooting stars.

High recommend, communication is great at the nursery , weekly emails, diary of what they've done in the day and regular feedback opportunities with parents and staff. It's a bit more expensive than others but worth the extra .They really helped settle my child in and it made it easier going back to work. Facilities are excellent all new and great outdoors space and trips out.
