Reviews

6.3 Be Happy Preschool has a Review Score of 6.3 (6.251)

The Review Score of 6.3 (maximum of 10) for Be Happy Preschool 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Be Happy Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.694 for Be Happy Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.694

  • 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 1.557 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Be Happy Preschool is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.114 , then divided by 2 = 0.057

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

My Son has been attending Be Happy for the past year. The staff are excellent and our son always looks forward to Nursery. We regularly receive text alerts about the activities that have taken place and are able to discuss this with our son.

The communication between us and the Nursery management is excellent, and we always have effective and prompt responses to any queries.

Joanne Poole, Preschool Manager at Be Happy Preschool responded to this review on 29 Nov 2016:

Thank you Daljit, it has been our absolute pleasure. Kind Regards, Be Happy.

Very good school and definitely recommended. Their way of communication to parents is very good. My child was crying for the first 3 weeks but now he is used to the school and he also started talking only after going to school. I see lots of difference in him.

My daughter has attended Be Happy preschool for a month now and I can not praise it enough. The day is well structured and staff very caring, kind and mostly enthusiastic which has helped my child settle in.

The manager goes above and beyond with communicating with the parents via emails, newsletters, and texts and so I always feel a part of what my daughter is doing and very much involved in this community preschool.

We love looking forward to what my child brings home from an activity and what she is learning from each week's themed learning. Overall the staff, the layout and planned activities really make it enjoyable to send my child to this preschool.
