The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Westferry Back Up Care Nursery & Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Westferry Back Up Care Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 2 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 4.478 for Westferry Back Up Care Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.478

  • 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 3.595 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Westferry Back Up Care Nursery & Preschool 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target = 0.345

  • 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 Westferry Back Up Care Nursery & Preschool

  • Mother of Child

My child attended the Westferry Back Up Care Nursery between the age of 6 months and 1 year 3 months. It was at the time when we were not ready and did not need to place him in a day nursery on a regular basis, but still needed childcare on an irregular basis. This nursery was an absolute saviour for our family as it provided a flexible, convenient and trusted solution.

We also liked the fact that they always had qualified, permanent staff on site (no temp staff), who cared well for children, as that provided continuity of care and helped our child feel comfortable there with familiar people. They also provided us with daily feedback as any day nursery would as well as tips on how to continue and aid the child's development at home. I would highly recommend the Westferry Back Up Care Nursery to families that are in need of pay-as-you-go service provided by a trustworthy provider. Now that I have another child, I am planning to resume using their service in a couple of months!

I have 4 children aged 4, 6, 9 and 10. The care was very good in ensuring they catered for their age groups.
They had different activities constantly going on to keep my little ones busy.
The ladies were very good at settling the children. When I first brought them in, the youngest child decided he wasn't going to be left. The staff were really warm and welcoming within minutes he was off playing.

I highly recommend this service, it's great value for money and your children will be very well looked after.
