Reviews

7.9 Meadows Nursery at Pilrig has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.874)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Meadows Nursery at Pilrig is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meadows Nursery at Pilrig in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.778 for Meadows Nursery at Pilrig is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 3.096 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meadows Nursery at Pilrig is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.096

  • 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 Meadows Nursery at Pilrig

  • Mother of Child
    6

Our two daughters attended Meadows Nursery at Pilrig for 3 years. We very much recommend it.

The staff are diverse, bringing different skills and experiences to the children. Turnover seemed low and they seemed to genuinely care about the girls which is really reassuring as a parent.

The food is homemade and the cook always involved the children. Indeed she could always get them to eat things they would never accept at home!

The garden is large and much time is spent out there.

Thoughtful and creative activities are planned each week, which the girls would delight in talking about once they were home.

We were really sad to leave Meadows, they were like a family.

Our daughter attended Meadows Nursery from 17 months to 3 years. From our first meeting with staff and her first settle, we knew that we had happened upon a really good nursery. The atmosphere that the staff, parents and children created really was like the best extended family you could ever know. Our daughter talked excitedly about her friendships, sand, learning, songs and the many staff that showed her such love and affection during her time there. Staff responded so well to parental queries and it was a pleasure both dropping our daughter off and collecting at the end of her fun day there. The set up allows free play (both in and outdoors) and focussed learning relevant to the age/stage group. Forest schools were also offered to children once they turned three and our daughter loved this experience. In terms of the 3-5 curriculum I was very impressed with how this was covered and the staff couldn't hide their excitement at being part of our daughters learning.

I love Meadows at Pilrig. My daughter has loved it and is now going to school. It is a smaller nursery which is great. I will be sending my second there when he is the right age. The staff are all great and you get plenty of feedback and communication. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

A great nursery! I have two children and they both attend. They encourage the children to be outside whatever the weather, the food is homemade (the older kids can help make the bread in the morning!), they go on plenty of trips and are always excited to go in the morning and playing happily when I come to pick them up. Highly recommend.
