The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Sky High Achievers Blacon 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sky High Achievers Blacon in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.729 for Sky High Achievers Blacon is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.028 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sky High Achievers Blacon is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.278

  • 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 Sky High Achievers Blacon

  • Mother of Child

With having a child with autism and bringing him into this setting has been an amazing experience. My son has thrived so much from the care he has received here. During his time, the staff catered for his every need, especially his one to one and I could not praise a particular staff member enough for her efforts with him,

I have been supported, not only with my oldest son but as a family unit with the meetings.

Sky High Achievers is a fantastic nursery and what makes it extra special is its kind, supportive and nurturing staff. They work hard to understand, care for and ensure the children are ready for the future. We have had 2 children attend Sky High and the facilities are fantastic, particularly the large outdoor space where the children spend a lot of time exploring and enjoying the fresh air. Having a child with additional needs, the nursery have supported both him and us through assessment and diagnosis and have been proactive in ensuring the right support is in place for him. The nursery are always keen to include parents/carers in developing and improving the service and nursery management are always available for you to discuss any concerns.

The fact that both children run in at the beginning of the day and have to be dragged out at the end is testament to how much they love it there.

I would definitely recommend Sky High to anyone looking for childcare.

My daughter has been very happy at the nursery and has been well looked after. The staff are very friendly and good with the children. She has loved her time there and will miss going.
