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 4.917 for Highfield Lane Day Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.076 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Highfield Lane Day Nursery School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.076

  • 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 Highfield Lane Day Nursery School

  • Mother of Child
    1

My daughter has attended Highfield Lane nursery since it opened and I cannot speak highly enough of it. Extremely nurturing, wonderful, attentive staff and great management. I have had experience of another nursery and Highfield really feels like everyone involved loves what they do, it certainly does not feel like a business. They always welcome you to have a chat if you have anything you wish to discuss, a very 'open door' policy. The learning activities are above and beyond what I would expect and great to see (with photos) what your child does each day through their online portal. Food is healthy and varied and my little one certainly enjoys it. Facilities are amazing and their learning through play is extremely imaginative. The various nursery rooms are based not on age but on how your child is as an individual - as we know and as Highfield Lane know, no two children are the same.
