Reviews

8 Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Glasgow Central has a Review Score of 8 (8.000)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Glasgow Central is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Glasgow Central in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 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 4.958 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Glasgow Central is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 3.042 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Glasgow Central is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 23.8 positive Reviews (119 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 23.8 Target = 0.042

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

My step son attends the nursery and has been there now for 6 months. He has come on greatly since transferring to Monkey Puzzle Glasgow Central. The staff have been fantastic at encouraging him to eat and try new things. He is excited every day now coming to nursery and it has made my girlfriend's life so much more flexible. The nursery is well run, it has fantastic resources and the garden is amazing.
Staff communicate with us daily and are always available to chat and discuss any concerns we have. Can not praise the nursery enough.

Fantastic flexible services, great staff, outstanding quality across the board. The term time contract has been a fantastic help and allows me to enjoy work and family time in a cost effective way. My daughter has developed so much in the last 6 months thanks to the nursery.

My son has learnt so much since starting the bilingual documents, translation information and helped me and my family to understand and be a part of his learning here in Glasgow. The food supplied is good and meets my son's religious needs.
