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 4.75 for Blossoms Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.185 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blossoms Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.435

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

I have already bought one child through the nursery system, so this is not my first rodeo. Blossoms is among the best we've found, and certainly the best we could find in North Birmingham. Staff are generally both delightful and competent, routines, updates, baby-learning are all good. Management are highly competent and always on top of everything. The deputy manager is wonderful.
Our baby has been pretty ill due to reflux, and we have left her at the nursery in some pretty poor states while we get some sleep. They have just taken her and coped, without complaint, while she pukes and cries and moans for eight hours. Few other nurseries would do it, and I'm massively grateful to them.
I'll list a few quibbles - the outside space is lovely but already looks to be suffering from a lack of routine maintenance. It's too warm in the baby room - 24 degrees. Staff can be forgetful of dummies, bottles, trousers, etc; so nothing to cause parents any real concerns.

Lisa Reynolds at Blossoms Day Nursery responded to this review on 24 Apr 2018:

Thank you for your review, we have taken on board your comments for improvement, and thank you for your kind words.

Lisa.

My daughter recently started at Blossoms Day Nursery and I am really pleased with it. The staff are all friendly and really helpful and the nursery itself is great. My daughter loves it there. I was a bit apprehensive about sending my daughter to nursery as she is only 7 months old but starting her at Blossoms Day Nursery was the best thing I have done. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! My daughter is 3 years old and has been to 3 nurseries so I have had my fair share of experiences with nurseries and nursery staff, Blossoms Day Nursery is just amazing! It’s clean, organised, friendly and welcoming. They are always doing extra activities with the children like days out they really go above to keep them entertained. They have animals in the outside space. My daughter loves that! And the outside space is so creative, beautiful. My child has progressed so much in this nursery. One thing I have noticed all the children in the nursery are extremely clever and advanced. Not to mention all of the staff are amazing. They love the children and the children love them!
