Reviews

9.3 Horsham Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.304)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Horsham Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Horsham Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.704 for Horsham Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.704

  • 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 4.6 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Horsham Day Nursery is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.600

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

Horsham Day Nursery has a lovely warm atmosphere. All the staff are extremely dedicated, professional and caring. They know the children (and parents) well and provide a brilliant environment to enable them to learn and flourish. If we ever have issues we know we can talk to the manager and staff who can advise us on how to help our sons. It's such a relief to be able to leave our sons and know they will be so well cared for and happy. They go outside a lot and do different activities within their daily routine which we love.

My daughter is three and a half years old and has been attending Horsham Day Nursery of over a year. The last six months in particular including with a change of management has transformed our daughter into a confident and chatty toddler. The setting itself is homely and provides a safe and nurturing environment where you feel that your child is genuinely cared for.
My daughter will be extremely sad to leave, however, her little brother will be starting in September! Fantastic nursery.

My daughter has been with Horsham Day Nursery for over two years now and my son for nearly a year. They are both very happy and always have a great time. I have a fight getting them to leave every day! Many improvements have been made and recently things are going from strength to strength. My two have come on so much with their confidence, development and social skills. Highly recommend Horsham Day Nursery and the lovely staff. I feel happy knowing they are well looked after and cared for.

The Horsham Day Nursery has come on in leaps and bounds since new management has taken over. My son really enjoys coming in to see his friends and has a great bond with his key worker and all the staff. I love seeing his observations uploaded on the Tapestry of what he has been doing throughout the week.
