  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.958 for Big Sky Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 3.513 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Big Sky Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.263

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

8.5 Big Sky Nursery has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.471)

Big Sky Nursery has been/is fantastic. They put me at ease immediately with their friendly staff and atmosphere. The stay and play afternoons were a great way to introduce my son to a new environment and meet the staff he would be spending time with. They get to know the children really well and my son is always keen to go. He is always stimulated with exciting activities and I really notice an improvement in all areas of learning.

An amazing day nursery!

My son started this nursery at 6 months, as I returned to work and at first I was worried due to not being with him and him being with people who did not know, But once his first day was over and I heard how happy he was, I knew I made the right choice. All staff in The Sunshine Room all stuck out to me, as they made my son and myself feel comfortable and kept me updated via Parent Zone on how he was and what he was doing, foods, nappy changes etc. The nursery itself is a lovely environment to be in and I see why its a popular nursery, as they offer the whole package, food, sensory play, a key person etc and to me that's what makes the whole experience better. Wish we was not moving to another city otherwise Baby E would stay at this nursery till he was ready to start school.

Thank you for everything Big Sky :D!

We will miss you all.
