Reviews

8 Jubilee Gems has a Review Score of 8 (7.967)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Jubilee Gems is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jubilee Gems 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 4.9 for Jubilee Gems is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.9

  • 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 3.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jubilee Gems is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.067

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

We joined the nursery when my child was only 9 months old (April 2016) and we were welcomed from the moment we arrived to have our first look around. The nursery hadn't been open to my little girl's age group for long, but when walking around you could see that a lot of hard work had gone into providing for their age group. She has been and is very happy at Gems and the staff are so friendly, caring and helpful! We would highly recommend this little rural nursery to anyone who values the outdoor exposure and caring environment these little munchkins need.

There is a wide range of activities daily and lots of outdoor play. The availability of the woods and animals is fantastic and definitely a favourite. My child's progress is evident and she has come on leaps and bounds in her development. The staff are very caring and conscientious - my child settled in very easily. They have been a huge support with eating and have helped encourage her to try new things and eat vegetables again.The staff embrace the children's individuality and nature it. My child often speaks about the staff and the positive impact they have on her is evident.
