The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Seashells Private Day Nursery, Blackpool 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Seashells Private Day Nursery, Blackpool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.819 for Seashells Private Day Nursery, Blackpool is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.819

  • 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Seashells Private Day Nursery, Blackpool 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

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

My 2 children started Seashells in Septeptember 2016 and still attend. Myself and their dad are absolutely thrilled with how much they have learned. All the staff are extremely professional, caring, friendly and positive. It is like one big family and my children have a genuine bond with their nursery nurses. I could not imagine sending my children anywhere else after attending Seashells because it's everything I expected from a nursery and more!

Seashells Private Day Nursery, Blackpool is a fabulous nursery and learning environment. The staff are friendly, professional and competent in their work. The outside space must be one of the best of any nursery local to me. Friendly, approachable management team who always find the time to speak to me and my child. My son always comes home with a smile on his face.

When my daughter started she was a little upset as she missed her mummy. The nursery staff made her feel very welcome. She now really enjoys going to Seashells and loves the staff. The manager is very helpful, always there to help if I'm having trouble getting my daughter to nursery.

I find this nursery to be one of the best in Blackpool. I viewed a lot before making a decision but found that my son was most settled and appeared the most comfortable here. I feel his education and his character has come along so much since being here. I feel that the garden is the only place they are lacking, as they could do with a stronger variety of equipment.
