Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Children's Place Gateway is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children's Place Gateway in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 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 4.885 for Children's Place Gateway is calculated as follows: ( (171 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 4.865 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Children's Place Gateway is based on 9 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). 9 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.865

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

9.8 Children's Place Gateway has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.750)

Love, Love, Love this playgroup, wish my daughter would never leave. Great to talk to and ask for advice. My daughter loves to go and never complains, just like my last daughter. Will be upset when it comes to her leaving as she is my last. The staff and management have become more like friends. I value them and trust them 110%.

I was very anxious about my son starting because I thought there wouldn't be many staff but now a couple of months down the line, I am glad I chose this nursery as my son has turned into such a polite little boy and loves to share which he never did before.

My 2-year-old daughter has been going to the playgroup and other events here since she was 11 months old so she is familiar with the gateway centre and knows some of the staff so she settled into nursery really well without any problems.
She started at the nursery in April and she loves going there. Every time I bring her she runs off and starts playing with other children or talking to staff, her speech is improving and she is gaining more confidence. The nursery looks considerably clean and safe inside and in the outside play area. The children spend a lot of time outside when the weather is nice so get plenty of time to run about, have fun and learn new physical skills. The staff are very friendly and helpful and listen to any questions you may have.

My son and I enjoy him attending the nursery. He is always confident in going off to nursery and bonds well with his teachers. He also enjoys seeing me when his time is up, meaning a good balance has been achieved. He has developed greatly in communication and speech since attending this nursery.

Since being at Gateway Nursery my son has come in so far. He is not very vocal at the moment but since being here he is saying so many more words. I haven't had any problems whatsoever with Gateway and would recommend to everyone.

Gateway has a lot of friendly staff you can talk to, they have performed well, if my child hurt himself or if anything bad happens they tell us straight away by phoning us or discussing it while were there. They greet us with a smile.

I rate this nursery very highly after my 2 older children attending in the past 10 years. My youngest son attends now and has come mon leaps and bounds with his speech. He has become a lot more confident around other children.

Children's place at Gateway is a really good nursery, the staff are really friendly and interact well with the children. The nursery itself has lots of activities for the children and caters for all the children's different interests. There are lots of activities inside including water, sand, arts and crafts and a play corner. Also there is a lot to do outside too so your child can have fun inside and out. The nursery also has a range of healthy meals, my daughter goes from 8 until 1 and she has breakfast, snack and dinner there. My daughter is really happy at this nursery.
