      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

Our son, who recently turned one, has been at Kiddi Caru since 9 months, 5 days. He loves coming to school each day. The nursery has a wonderful array of activities covering all aspects - sensory room, arts and crafts etc. Our son has blossomed so much since being here and it's noticeable across all aspects - the way he eats, the way he plays, words etc. He's bonded extremely well with his key carer. We couldn't be happier.

We have been extremely happy with the care and support my child has received. All staff have been excellent in their communication and their kind, caring nature towards our little boy. A special mention to his key worker for her professional and energetic attitude as she has been a wonderful service of confidence when communicating his needs. Thank you for all your outstanding work.

We have had a very positive experience throughout the 2 years our daughter has been at nursery. We find the communication between nursery and home to be frequent and they welcome our input. We feel our daughter has benefited greatly from her time here and has formed strong bonds with all her carers.

My son has been attending Kiddi Caru since he was 8 months old and is now 2 1/2. It is a warm, friendly environment and I have always found the staff to be caring and take a genuine interest in my son. The facilities are great - the garden and sensory cabin especially are fantastic.

My daughter comes to the nursery and is always excited to come to see her carers and has a fantastic bond with them all but one in particular - her key carer. My daughter always talks about the nursery and what she has enjoyed doing. The girls are always happy to help with any query you may have. My daughter receives brilliant care, I couldn't be happier with her progress.

Pretty good that my child gets a variety of activities, stimulation, exposure and learning at the same time. Blending in and interacting with others, learning to share, alphabet, toilet training has been learnt hand in hand with her experience at home. But at nursery, she experiences more variety. The experience would hopefully prepare her for school. Excellent garden facilities and sensory cabin. I notice other nurseries don't compare with the facilities with Kiddi Caru garden.

Overall I have been very happy with Kiddi Caru. Staff have been brilliant and get the children involved in a wide range of activities. My son is very happy and settled at Kiddi Caru even though he only attends for 1 day a week. In the 2 years he has been attending I couldn't fault anything. Now my son is turning 3 and entitled to the 15 funded hours, I have found that Kiddi Caru is very restricted in the way they offer the funding, which I have found very difficult but this is the only negative point about the nursery.

Since my daughter started in Kiddi Caru in February this year, she has thrived. Her speech has come on in leaps and bounds, with confidence. My daughter is currently in preschool on a full-time basis and again I feel this will fully prepare her for school in September 2017. The staff are great and open in terms of what has happened in the day and share any concerns. I feel fully confident that when leaving my daughter for the day, she is cared for in a warm and friendly environment.
