Reviews

9.3 South Lee Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.333)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for South Lee Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for South Lee Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 5 for South Lee Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 5

  • 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 4.333 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for South Lee Nursery is based on 5 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.333

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

Reviewer Connection to South Lee Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

I was amazed at what a difference a good nursery could make to my daughter. She has been given the best possible start in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. She has enjoyed all sorts of fun activities both inside and outside which I could never replicate at home. Her confidence has blossomed and she is prepared and excited about all future learning opportunities. She has grown alongside a fabulous group of friends who support her and excite her through her learning journey. This is all possible due to the inspirational staff.

My son was at the nursery before starting Primary School and I can not recommend it more highly. It gave him a wonderful introduction to school life and took the worry away from us about starting school. The environment they provide for them to learn and play is fantastic and the amazing addition of forest school and stave house. My son was incredibly happy and my daughter is starting soon, which she is very excited about. I would highly recommend South Lee Nursery to any parent in this area.

South Lee Nursery has been the best decision for my children - they absolutely love their time there and are often talking about the amazing activities they get up to, especially Forest School. I could not recommend it more highly. Amazing staff, excellent facilities and flexible wrap around care. If you are considering nurseries in the area you must go and look around.

I have been constantly amazed by the level of care, professionalism and passion that all the staff have. Both my children have had exceptional 1:1 support during their time at the nursery.
They love every day they are there, often asking to go in on their days off. Often talking about their teachers and all the things they do at nursery, especially forest schools.
I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

South Lee Nursery is an excellent, very friendly nursery with outstanding staff and great facilities. Very clean, amazing attention to detail and in my opinion South Lee prepares children brilliantly for school whilst also letting them play and above all have fun.
Would thoroughly recommend. My child loves it. Without a shadow of a doubt one of the best in the area.
They also have a fabulous dedicated Forest School area and run great parent and toddler sessions.
