The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Kids 1st Wansbeck is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 1st Wansbeck in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 11 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 4.924 for Kids 1st Wansbeck is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.924

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 child places. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered child places 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.

    The 4.491 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 1st Wansbeck is based on 11 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 22.4 positive Reviews (112 registered child places ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 22.4 Target = 0.491

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

Our son started going to nursery when he was 9 months old. He's now 22 months and loves going to nursery. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, which makes handing over our precious boy so much easier. The standard of care he receives is outstanding. The staff are happy to work with your routines and preferences and try to make parents feel as involved as possible. The variety of activities they undertake really helps the children's development. The daily feedback and regular observations are amazing. I love logging into the parent zone app to see what our boy has been up to. I have a happy boy who loves going to nursery and happy boy equals Happy Mummy.

We have two young children here, one in the top class and one in the "baby unit". The staff help to put your mind at rest and in many cases will go the "extra mile" to help and offer support. There have never been any major problems and I know from speaking to others that Kids 1st Wansbeck are top for learning and keeping young kids happy. The children are well fed and watered with lots of tasty food- most of it healthy with the odd treat too.

I'm very impressed with my little boy's development and how the girls cope and look after him. I always thought if my boy hadn't been to Kids 1st, will he be as clever and well mannered as he is? He might be as clever as he is but his social skills wouldn't be as brilliant. Thanks Kids 1st! You're the best. I would take my boy into your capable hands all over again.

Since day one, we have been made to feel welcome by all of the staff and have always felt at ease leaving our daughter in their care. Our daughter (15 months) really enjoys the daily activities and have notably benefitted from social interaction with the other children.
Our daughter always seems to enjoy the food offered, which appears well balanced. The coffee to go service is partially appreciated by my husband too! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for childcare of good quality.

The nursery is spotless and I have never seen an unhappy child here. All staff are happy and welcoming and my daughter loves coming into nursery and anticipates the fun she will have. She has come on leaps and bounds whilst attending and I feel confident she is in safe caring hands.

Kids 1st are excellent at catering to the individual needs of the child. They keep the parents really well informed and often offer advice of strategies to use at home. The variety of food on offer is great for encouraging the children to try new things.

Very happy with the nursery staff, they have made my son very welcome. Always happy at nursery with no concerns which makes it so much easier leaving him. Lovely, clean setting with lots of toys and activities which he enjoys very much. Staff are all very helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble.

I am very pleased with the way that the EYFS is implemented from an early age. My children have learnt so much since returning to the nursery after the summer holidays. All of the staff are very enthusiastic about the children's abilities and are so positive and approachable. Keep up the good work, my children love coming to nursery and have great relationships with the staff members.

This nursery is excellent. Care, attention to detail, support and enthusiasm, all score very highly! I have had no bad experiences at all. The staff are amazingly supportive and listen to all the needs of the children. I am currently potty training and this was no problem at all. My little one is only attending one day a week now due to personal circumstances and the nursery were very accommodating, but also I feel he is benefitting massively from this experience both educationally and socially.
