Reviews

9.1 Iford Bridge Nursery & Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.146)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Iford Bridge Nursery & Pre-school 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Iford Bridge Nursery & Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.729 for Iford Bridge Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Iford Bridge Nursery & Pre-school 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.667

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

Iford Bridge has been an excellent nursery/preschool for our youngest son. The staff are loving and caring and very patient.
Our son has loved his time there and is well prepared for school and has made some lovely friends and bonds with the staff.
The nursery provides great flexibility for parents giving term time only options as well as school days which is great if you have older children.
I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Thank you for your review, it is very appreciated.

Iford Bridge has been an amazing nursery for my second child. I only wish my first daughter had gone there. The management and staff are that amazing combination of professional, organised, fun and caring. My daughter has thrived there and I am so grateful for the team for all of those memories.

Amazing nursery - my son was so far behind. Being very a premature and poorly child, it took him a while to speak - let alone how far he's come since attending this nursery. Staff are welcoming and friendly, unlike others my son attended. He had a great journey with them -
I'm sad he's leaving but confident with him now about to go to school.
