  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for YMCA Daycare Greets Green in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.677 for YMCA Daycare Greets Green is calculated as follows: ( (156 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.677

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for YMCA Daycare Greets Green is based on 17 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target Reached = 1

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

9.7 YMCA Daycare Greets Green has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.677)

Thank you for your lovely review.

Very happy with the whole set up. My daughter started last summer and for the first two weeks she was nervous and wanted me and my partner to stay. But after the first two weeks, she wakes up every morning asking if she has nursery. She has settled really well and enjoys every day. I am happy with the support provided by the staff.

Thank you for your review.

My grandson started Daycare Greets Green nursery early in the year. Since being at the nursery he has made lots of friends and enjoys attending nursery. All the staff have been amazing, the care and affection that my son was shown while there goes a long way. The manager has helped our family in the middle of the year when we needed her most, with a personal family reason. The staff will be missed as my son leaves today to start a new school in January.

My son has been attending this nursery since May this year. Staff have been very welcoming and helpful in getting him settled in the nursery. When approached, staff have always been friendly and approachable. Thank you for helping him develop over the last few months and for looking after him.

Thank you for your lovely review.

We have used YMCA since 2013 for both our boys. During this time, the staff have been wonderful and are always attentive to their needs, no matter how small. My eldest really came out of his shell here and my youngest now has really thrived. Staff are friendly and like a second family.

The nursery is beyond adequate and a home away from home. We live outside the area so it says a lot that we have chosen to bring our children here.

Thank you for your lovely review.

Fantastic nursery setting, both my children have attended this nursery from the babies room right the way up to pre-school. The staff are very kind and accommodating and I always feel my children are in safe hands. I have watched my children develop and grow so much there and they are always happy to go there which is most reassuring as a parent.

My eldest daughter attended the nursery from 2010 - 2013 and by the time she graduated it was like a second home to her. So when I had my second child I had no hesitation in starting her at the nursery.

I was still very nervous to start with and my little one didn't like being separated from me. The staff were wonderful, they gave her lots of hugs and cuddles and listened to my advice on how to comfort her. They were never too busy to reassure me when I called to check on her. After only around 10 days she fully settled in and started running into the room and throwing her arms around the staff members.

The setting is lovely, clean and inviting as well as homely and even though all of the staff work so hard they all have warm smiles on their faces.

I cant recommend the nursery enough for how they have taken care of my girls :-)

Thank you for your lovely words, we are so pleased you have all settled and are happy at the setting, the little smiles we get make our mornings.

This nursery is the best nursery I've come across all staff are so friendly and welcoming, my little boy started here in Feb so I could go back to work so nervous but all the members of staff worked together to make sure I knew my little boy would be ok there. He has really settled in and enjoys going and I enjoy walking in there as the atmosphere is just so welcoming every week is the same. All members of staff have really helped with my little boys development. Would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

I have twins that attend the nursery, they love coming to nursery. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. I especially like that they have now employed a male member of staff who is really nice, my children really like him and look up to him.
I feel very comfortable with all members of staff. They listen to my queries and will always do something about them.
the nursery is very clean and inviting. All the children seem happy.

I enrolled my daughter over a month ago after hearing lots of positive feed back from other mothers from playgroups. The staff are all super friendly and helpful. My daughter has settled very quickly and enjoys her time at nursery. As a result, we have gone from one morning a week to one full day a week. Me and my fiancee are extremely happy with the care our daughter is receiving. Thank you to everyone at the nursery.

I had little dealings with the nursery staff, as mum normally did the school run, but my girls always spoke positively about their time there and of the staff.
The few occasions where I would collect my girls from the nursery were always a bit difficult, as they'd refuse to leave! I always took this as a good sign as they seemed very settled and comfortable in the environment.
They would talk about the events of their day with enthusiasm and would look forward to attending on the days they did go.
Overall it was a great experience.

My twin girls started attending this nursery in 2015. They graduated last month, July 2017 and it was a tearful day.
The staff at the nursery are great. They create lasting impressions on the children, as my girls would often discuss the staff while at home and were eager to tell me about their day. They would say how a member of staff would comfort them when they were sad, or helped them with a craft activity or even may have scolded them for not paying attention during circle time (haha).
The memories they created there and the friendships they made are so precious and these friendships extend to the entire family.
The staff are very attentive to the children and would pick up on subtle changes in a child's behaviour right away. I have honestly never heard them raise their voice at a child, no matter how challenging the child's behaviour may be.
They are friendly, approachable and just overall brilliant.
I have absolutely nothing but praise for the Greets Green Centre.

My son went for the free for two and stayed up until his 3rd birthday. He loved the nursery. The staff were friendly and approachable. He learnt a lot but as I wanted to send him to a school nursery he left. Keep it up, guys!

My son went to the nursery for his pre school year doing funded hours, at the beginning he was unsettled and the staff were very patient, caring and gave him lots of encouragement to help him settle. Since then he has enjoyed every minute at nursery and looks forward to going, he comes home each day telling me about all the exciting things he's done.
The staff are all welcoming and friendly and easy to approach. My little boy just had his graduation which all staff and children worked hard to give a good show for parents. It was so lovely. I'm sad to see him leave but will def be back soon with my little baby when maternity is up. It's going to be hard to leave her at 8 months but I know she will be safe and I have a lot of trust in the staff!!

My son has attended the setting since he was just a few months old, he loved it from the very first moment and three years later still does! He really enjoys his time there and never wants to come home! The nursery has a really warm and welcoming environment, with friendly and knowledgeable staff. My son has learnt so much in his time at nursery and it has helped him to become more confident and sociable. Would definitely recommend the nursery other parents.

Both my children have attended the setting and my youngest is still there. I am very happy with the care they have both received whilst being at the nursery. Staff are always very welcoming and pleasant to myself and my child. There is always lots going on and my son is always happy to attend. His development has come on in leaps and bounds in the last year and it is all down to the hard working staff. He is academically above his age and they are currently encouraging and stimulating his mind which I and his father are very happy with. It is a very clean and well looked after by the staff and management team.
