  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Priory Explorers Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 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 4.458 for Priory Explorers Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.458

  • 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 1.715 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Priory Explorers Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.179 , then divided by 2 = 0.090

My little boy has been attending this nursery since he was 6 months old. Now almost 3 years he has grown so much with the help of the staffs. As a full time working mum, I find it pleasing when our child is received in warmly on arrival in the morning. This helps me get through my day knowing that he is in capable hands who loves to care for him.

Concerns are addressed almost immediately, and I always get a daily feedback of what he is up to, this helps me catch up with his day. He has never cried for a day while dropping him off, the girls are fantastic and they give so much great care. I cant thank them enough. They've given me so much peace of mind for the past 2 years, and I wouldn't have remained in full time if I didn't have the full support for him. Plus when we relocated away from the area to a farther distance, we couldn't afford to change his nursery as he loves it there, and he has remained in the setting. Thank you so much all.
