  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 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 4.933 for The Glasgow Academy - Milngavie Nursery and Kindergarten is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.933

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 3.156 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Glasgow Academy - Milngavie Nursery and Kindergarten is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.156

Very warm and caring staff, I cannot fault any one of the team. Nursery/Kindergarten children are included in many of the activities of the big school which my daughter has particularly enjoyed. Children spend a good amount of the time outside exploring the local moor. Activities seem very varies and appropriate to age and stage of children. Whenever I appear to collect all children appear happy and actively engaged in nursery life. We are relatively new to the nursery but have so far found it to be very warm, inclusive environment which encourages all children to have a go. Very happy with our choice to date.

I would recommend The Glasgow Academy Nursery Milngavie for when your child turns 3 (go before to get your name down in advance). Fabulous school, staff, and a new outdoor learning classroom on Barloch Moor. This hidden gem also is an East Dunbartonshire Partnership nursery so you get funding too (not many people realise this!). As a parent, you can't fault it! My daughter went and my baby son will be going too. An outstanding place in an idyllic setting. I can't recommend enough.

My two daughters thrived at The Glasgow Academy Nursery in Milngavie. The nurturing, creative, thoughtful, fun environment was ideal, and exactly what I was looking for.
From days out to musical performances, serving parents at a cream tea, lots of playing, reading, and their final tearful graduation, they enjoyed it all.
As a parent, I was delighted to see them both becoming enthused in class projects, learning to write, taking a joy in reading, and hearing the odd French or Mandarin phrase at home always amazed me.
I was able to get involved with their lending library once a week which was lovely since it gave me time in the playroom.

Both my children attended the nursery and kindergarten at The Glasgow Academy Milngavie for 2 years and I cannot recommended it strongly enough.
The playroom is a very bright and stimulating environment and you know from day 1 that your child is being cared for by staff who genuinely care and your child is certainly not "just another number".

I particularly liked the focus on learning through both play and more formal education and think it provides a seamless transition to the school which is also on site. The children in the nursery classes interact regularly with children in the p1 - p4 classes and so when it is time for them to move on to p1, it doesn't feel like a huge step at all.

The staff in the nursery are outstanding and genuinely care about your child and their development. They operate an extremely "open door policy" which allows parents to see exactly what is going on in the nursery on a day to day basis. It's also open from 8-6 which is great for working parents.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for nearly a year and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are welcoming, nurturing, and have excellent communication with parents. The activities on offer are super - PE with a specialist teacher, French, and varied and interesting choice of projects to have fun with and facilitate learning. The playroom is full of activities for the children to enjoy and there are lots of outdoor toys too. A fantastic nursery that's extremely well run. The nursery gives kids a great start!
