Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Mini Monkeys is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mini Monkeys in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 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 4.958 for Mini Monkeys is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 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 4.889 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Mini Monkeys 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.889

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

9.8 Mini Monkeys has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.847)

My little cousin attends Mini Monkeys and absolutely loves it, he often talks about the staff at home and really looks forward to going to the nursery, the staff are very professional and approachable and have helped settle him really well, the facilities and resources available are excellent and there is a wide range of toys inside and outside for my little cousin to play with.

Great nursery, my granddaughter has settled in from moving from her last nursery very well, she has made new friends very quickly and loves the friendly easy going staff. The nursery staff have activities most days whether this is indoors or outdoors. The nursery also offers a great variety of food that is prepared fresh daily. All nursery staff are very approachable and are very caring.

I see a big difference in my little boy since he started Mini Monkeys. He is really happy to go and talks about nursery and staff a lot at home, he particularly loves the garden.

I'm very happy with the nursery, my little boy used to be very shy but he's coming out of his shell. I see a big difference in him and a big difference in his eating. Staff are brilliant with the kids. Stunning nursery and if you had any worries you can give them a phone and they will answer your questions right away. 5/5 STARS.
