Reviews

8.9 Rainbows Pre-School has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.929)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Rainbows Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rainbows Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 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 5 for Rainbows Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rainbows Pre-School 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

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

I will be gutted to see the day when my youngest leaves Rainbows Pre-School which will be next year! I can't praise this pre-school enough, all the staff have become like an extended family to us and we appreciate their hard work they put in every day to keep our little one happy! There is so much they get up to each day, there is play time, learning time, walks, adventures! The lady and the whole Rainbows team are very accommodating and nothing is an issue! Both my children have grown in personalities and confidence whilst attending Rainbows Nursery/Preschool. There have been some hard beginnings for both of them like there would be for any child when starting nursery, preschool, school but plenty of encouragement and cuddles when needed (my youngest is very cuddly!) helped them to get over the initial hurdles and we never looked back. I'm so pleased we chose this place to look after our children while we are at work! Thank you Rainbows x

What can I say apart from brilliant, fantastic and an AMAZING preschool.
There really isn't enough words to describe how happy we are with the Rainbows team. We originally went to a different preschool but had to change after a week as she was not settled and was too upset every morning to go.
I called and visited Rainbows, and absolutely fell in love with the place. The staff were all so helpful and welcoming, they provided me with all the information I needed to know. Not only does it have a wonderful clean and tidy classroom but an amazing outdoors space too. It's like home from home with so much to do and play with.
Within two weeks the lovely, caring and fantastic staff have looked after, supported and completely relaxed my little girl, so now when she goes in in the morning she is happy and content and I'm happy as I know she is getting 5* care and support from the amazing staff there.
In my eyes, I couldn't have picked a better place to send our little girl.

Staff are excellent, very caring and supportive. My son really enjoys his days at pre-school and has gained lots of confidence.
Facilities are very good with plenty of outside space. Children are encouraged to try new activities and lots of emphasis on outdoor play.
