  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 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 4.896 for Spring Nursery RAF Scampton is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 4.4 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Spring Nursery RAF Scampton is based on 8 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.400

  • 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 attends breakfast and after school club at Spring. The team are brilliant. They take excellent care of him and are knowledgeable regarding his hearing impairment and additional needs. I would highly recommend Spring as a nursery.

Cannot fault the staff and nursery. They have been amazing at helping my little boy settle in, worked with us and put us at ease. He is always coming home with things he's made and loves that they get to go outside for lots of activities.

This is a fab nursery. The attention to details and feedback you receive is great, staff remember your name and know what my little ones have been up to. They anticipate if I’ve forgotten to book after school clubs and get in contact to make sure my eldest isn’t stranded which has saved my embarrassment a few times!

I’m really pleased with the way Spring support my child. He is learning letters with phonics, writing his name and his general social development is coming on too. If I’ve had questions about behaviour the staff are approachable and I feel well supported. The staff are bright and caring and understand my child’s needs.
I have found the hours very flexible with me working varying hours each week, which could have been stressful for me. There are great links with the local school, making the transition easier. Additionally, the food menu is varied and good value. Seasonal festivals are covered from varying cultures and the kids play outside most days.
I’ll be sad when my child leaves Spring.

Brilliant nursery with a fantastic team who went over and above expectations to help my little boy settle in. He has been at the nursery for just over a year now and absolutely loves it. They are always doing fun activities and playing out in the great garden. Lovely home cooked food, even available for a morning session. I would highly recommend this nursery.

This nursery is absolutely fantastic. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I am kept fully up to date with my daughter’s activities through the Famly app, and they are really easy to get hold of.
