Reviews

6.9 Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.933)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 5 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 4.8 for Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.8

  • 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 2.133 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 18.8 Target = 0.266 , then divided by 2 = 0.133

  • 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 Lace Hill Day Nursery and Out of School Club

Our daughter has attended Mind The Gap from March - September 2016, prior to starting pre-school. Previously she attended a childminder. We have been impressed with the level of care provided, particularly on an individual basis which was one of our concerns moving from a childminder to a nursery. The staff are very competent, and our daughter has really enjoyed attending the nursery.

I recommend this company to anyone who says they are looking for childcare! The care my son receives is fantastic he comes home with a smile on his face and really enjoys himself. The staff are very friendly and take the time to answer any questions and show a genuine interest in the children. Could not think of a better place to send my son in the school holidays.

I would like to recommend this nursery/before/after school club to anyone who is after a good care for their child! My 18 month old boy goes to nursery and absolutely loves it. When we come to pick him up he does not want to go home, which is a very good sign! Staff are brilliant, attentive, caring, kind. The manager is lovely, always there to talk, incredibly flexible and helpful. She has always found a way to meet all my needs, hours, swapping session around with no fuss which is crucial for me as a full time working mum!
I would highly recommend this nursery and a wrap around club as i found it very easy to deal with, very convenient in terms of location and very flexible in terms of approach to every family! Thank you very much!

Mind the Gap is absolutely amazing! The entire staff showed such attention and care during the half term break to my daughter. We are new to the area and they were recommended. I couldn't have been more pleased. I've already booked for the Easter holiday break and will continue to do so. Highly recommend. My daughter enjoyed them so much she wanted to return after half term was over. Looking forward to seeing them soon. Amazing experience!

My 7 year old daughter attends breakfast, after-school and holiday club, and I am absolutely thrilled at how welcoming all of the staff have been. Not only have the staff quickly built up a wonderful relationship with my daughter, they have also been incredibly flexible and accommodating, which is essential for two full time working parents whose needs often change!
I would highly recommend this setting, I have seen how the staff interact with children of all ages, and my daughter loves being encouraged to get involved with all aspects, including cooking!
