  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.867 for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Thorpe Park, Leeds) is calculated as follows: ( (52 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 3.661 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunbeams Day Nursery (Thorpe Park, Leeds) is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 18.6 positive Reviews (93 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 18.6 Target = 0.161

My son has only been here a few weeks but he is very happy. There is a wonderful atmosphere about the nursery and the staff are so warm and friendly. There are always so many activities on offer for him and he loves trying to tell me what he's been up to when I collect him.
We were really impressed after attending an open day for the nursery where we were able to speak to staff, have a look around and get a feel for the ethos of the setting.
We feel very fortunate that our son has a place here and we can't recommend it enough.

My daughter started at Sunbeams Thorpe park in October 2016 and right from the beginning she has absolutely loved coming. The staff are great, they are so helpful and always fill me in on how her day has been. Everyday she is doing something new and exciting. Since starting I have noticed a big difference in her confidence and development which I am really pleased about.
The location is excellent as it is so easy to drop off and then get back on to the motorway making it ideal for getting to work. Although the outside is currently not fully developed I can already tell by the standard of the nursery that it will fantastic, which is brilliant as my daughter loves playing outside.
I have already recommended a friend and will continue to do so.

My son has only been at Sunbeams for a few months and the nursery is very new and still establishing itself and it's community but so far I've been impressed with what I've seen, having a smaller number of children, to begin with, has helped my son settle in. The staff have been really good at helping him too. The facilities are brand new and in excellent condition and the menu often puts my cooking to shame. Looking forward to seeing what the next year brings with more children and staff joining.

My son started at Thorpe Park Nursey in October and is absolutely loving it. His confidence has increased and he has great fun every time he goes. The staff are very attentive to his needs and his day is filled with lots of fun activities like baking and painting. The nursery is amazing and so bright with a nice homely feel to it. We cannot fault the nursery or staff and would recommend to anyone.

A new and beautiful nursery, decorated to a high luxury standard. The staff are all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. My daughter absolutely loves going to the nursery and loves the staff. As I am in the health and fitness industry myself I was at first worried about what the food would be like however I was so pleased to learn that this nursery offers a good healthy meal and healthy snacks and also a variation of different foods in which my daughter had not tried before. My daughter's speech and development have improved incredibly. I love the fact that they are always doing different fun event days for the children, such as mad hatters day and children in need and lots more! The staff even get dressed up as characters! Overall this nursery offers a very high standard of childcare, high quality trained staff, luxury surroundings, great food and also lots of great fun activities for the children.
