8.2 CherryIsland Nursery has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.223)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for CherryIsland Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for CherryIsland 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 4.679 for CherryIsland Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.679

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.544 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for CherryIsland 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.294

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

I am so proud of what my daughter has achieved here and I can't fault the staff they have been absolutely outstanding in every area of my daughter's care and education. She loves coming here. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a placement for their child. Excellent doesn't even cover how I feel. My daughter always comes home excited to tell me about what she has done in the day and it's great seeing what she has learnt.

I am more than happy with my child's development in all areas since joining CherryIsland Nursery. He has come a long way in his learning and seems more bubbly each day. He enjoys telling me all the new things he has learnt and all the staff have a lovely relationship with my son.

Since my son has joined Cherry Island his development has progressed enormously. He has become more confident and has learnt a lot of useful life skills such as cooking. He is always coming home with something that he has made or baked. I feel confident that he is being cared for at a high standard. Any concerns that I have had have always been immediately addressed and handled very well. The staff are always friendly and helpful and all have big smiles on their faces!

All the staff are caring, friendly and approachable at Nursery Rhymes. My daughter is encouraged to reach her potential through active play. I thoroughly believe she enjoys every minute of her time at nursery! My daughter is also provided with a nutritious breakfast, lunch and tea which is very helpful.

Very friendly, great atmosphere for the children. Plenty of activities indoors and outdoors. She always comes home happy! She is so happy that she doesn't want to come home after her sessions, which shows she is very settled.

The staff at this nursery are the main recommendation I would make, they are always welcoming, warm and helpful to both staff and parents. My child has enjoyed her time here very much, and is always happy to attend. The management doesn't get too bogged down in over management and make it quite stress free to deal with the nursery. The activities on offer are always varied and creative, and I like that they get the children messy so I don't have to at home!

The staff are always very friendly and welcoming at Cherry Island Nursery. My son was very clingy when he first came and still can be, although with help from the staff already he seems to be settling in and enjoying it. The staff are always very helpful and forthcoming with information.

My child has been at Cherry Island since he was 18 months old to help with socialisation skills, he has enjoyed his time at the nursery greatly and has blossomed into a confident happy child. The calm friendly atmosphere has been exactly right to get him ready for school.

My son has come on loads since being here at Cherry Island.
I have been very happy with any problems I have had to deal with within the nursery.
My son is going to miss all the staff here as I'm sure he will also be missed.

Can't say a bad word about this play school. Lovely ladies, my kids loves them all. I would love to put my 3rd child in but it's a bit pricey. We will see, I hope my 3rd joins the play school soon, I' very happy with the play school.

It's a great little nursery with close links to the infant and junior schools on the campus. The staff have made my daughter's nursery experience one she will never forget. Her key worker has been exceptional and has moulded my little girl into a child ready for the challenge of infant school. For parents on Hayling, I would recommend this nursery to anyone.
