Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.861 for Dolphins Day Nursery Adel is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.861

  • 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 3.969 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Dolphins Day Nursery Adel is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.469

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

My child has been attending Dolphins pre school at Adel St John for almost 18 months since it opened and we are very happy with the care and education he receives. He thoroughly enjoys attending, he is learning lots and he has built some fabulous relationships with both staff and pupils. The communication is second to none and I could not recommend Dolphins high enough. The new addition of the nursery library allowing children to take a book out each Monday for a week is fantastic, teaches the children the value of a book, the lending procedure and also gives us a new book each week to read.

Incredibly happy with the nursery, the teachers are very friendly, great with the children and always give you a full verbal download on the day's events.
More importantly our daughter cannot wait to get to school, always comes away exausted from such fun yet hard working day!
