The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Indigo Early Years Service @ Garrowhill 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 Indigo Early Years Service @ Garrowhill in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.983 for Indigo Early Years Service @ Garrowhill is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 4.455 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Indigo Early Years Service @ Garrowhill 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.455

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

My son was quite apprehensive about starting nursery, as was I. However once he started he came on leaps and bounds and that's all thanks to the staff there. They are so friendly and professional and really put me at ease. My son loves going to nursery and asks about his friends there all the time. It makes me feel so happy to know that he is so settled and getting the early education he needs to make his transition to primary school as easy as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we appreciate your feedback. We will continue to provide outstanding quality childcare for our children and families and hope that you will continue to share your good experiences of The Indigo Group with family and friends.

Amazing nursery and outstanding staff. My daughter has attended since aged two. She has a milk protein allergy, which was why I was hesitant about sending her to nursery as it's pretty bad, but I needn't have worried as the staff have went out of their way to accommodate this. My daughter has came on leaps and bounds and is more advanced than my son was at this stage who attended another nursery very close to this one.
My daughter loves nursery and is a confident little individual who has progressed educationally and socially through her time here.
I can't praise the staff enough for their hard work and dedication to the children. They are very passionate and this is more than just on job to them!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone. I only wish it had been open when my son was a pre schooler.

Indigo, Garrowhill, is a first class nursery with exceptional staff. I have two children at the nursery, one in each of the rooms. The staff go out of their way to support parents and make sure children are comfortable while in the nursery. I have been impressed by the range of activities offered in the nursery. The nursery is always looking for new ways to engage the children, a mud kitchen has recently been added to the outdoor play area.
Delighted both my children have a place at this nursery.

The setting provides great experiences for children ages 2-3years and 3-5 years. Small room is very spacious and has fantastic natural light. Windows from ceiling to floor overlooking the forest and playground, allowing children to observe the outside world/ weather. Doors from both playrooms open out onto the outdoor area. The large room, equally as spacious. Staff are second to none and treat all children as individuals, following their needs and interests, allowing them to learn through play while promoting their independence through mealtimes, play and toilet training. The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming. Lots of pictures of the children and artwork on the walls. The Keyworker knows my daughter very well and spends lots of time throughout the day with her.
The Christmas show was superb! The fundraising ideas and parent involvement is spectacular. I love the charity tea afternoons that are held regularly and the Burns Supper, where children sing Scottish songs was truly special!

My grandson has been attending the nursery for the last few months. He has made lots of little friends, loves his teachers, and is especially close to his key worker. He has settled well in nursery and really enjoys it. The staff are really friendly and welcoming to both children and their mums, dads and grandparents and are also very caring towards the children. The playroom is bright and cheerful and children are all happy playing and exploring my grandson loves going to nursery and always talks about what he did while there.
