Kids@BT9, Belfast, County Down

Kids@BT9, first opened in March 2011 and offers a loving, homely environment for children.

The nursery was originally two large, detached houses which have been renovated, equipped and resourced to provide a bright and stimulating environment for children.

The baby unit provides care for from birth to two years old. Each room offers age appropriate activities and resources with separate sleeping facilities.

The pre-school and toddler unit offers a fun-filled busy day for all the children. The pre-school curriculum is complemented by weekly visits from Jo Jingles.

The garden is divided for each age group with plenty of room to run around, explore and climb on an adventure playground.

The children love to share a story on the large story-telling seat.

Learning through play and developing the six areas of learning, helps the team to ensure every child’s individual needs are met.

This Review Score of 9.926 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.926 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a nursery is 10 and it is based on the published Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.926 for Kids@BT9 is based on 46 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.926 for Kids@BT9 is calculated as follows: ( (499 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 538 Ratings = 4.926

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. 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 care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      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.

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Kids@BT9 is calculated as follows:

      1. 46 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 46 Positive Reviews = 4.600 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (46 Positive Reviews ÷ 77 Children) x 2 = 1.195 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

The nursery at Kids@BT9 is a well managed and professionally run nursery. The building is bright and welcoming and the rooms are clean with lots of colourful decorations for the children. My 2 children are always happy to go into nursery and always have an active and eventful day with lots of different toys and "messy" play. The staff are very professional but also caring and patient. The food is of a very good standard and they get plenty to eat throughout the day. I would be happy to recommend this nursery.

A very pleasant and welcoming environment. Kids @Bt9 provides both and professional and personal service to meet our childcare needs.

My little girl joined Kids@BT9 almost a year ago and I honestly could not be happier with the premises, the staff and the overall feeling of reassurance that your child is being cared for in the best possible way. You always receive a warm and open welcome from all of the staff and especially the owner. My little girl is currently in the Wobbler Room and each day we are given a direct and accurate breakdown of all of her activities, food consumed, the length of her nap and everything in-between. All of her workers are extremely friendly and are always accommodating with any particular requests you may have. They always make you feel that your children are in the most capable and safe hands. Most importantly, my daughter absolutely loves going to Kids@BT9 and really enjoys her time there. I would recommend Kids@BT9 to any parents looking for a nursery that their children will enjoy and to have their mind put at ease regarding their health, safety learning and happiness.

Kids@Bt9 is a fantastic nursery. The facilities are very welcoming, clean, and comfortable. However, it is the exceptional staff which set this nursery apart. Every member of staff is friendly, polite, professional, and most importantly have great relationships with the children. Every day the children take part in varied and stimulating activities. The children are encouraged to play together to help develop their social skills. Every month, each room in the nursery has a theme which aims to develop children's understanding of subjects such as shapes, colours, and seasons, all in keeping with early years curriculum. Special requirements for children are very willingly met, and the very knowledgeable staff are always on hand to offer their advice for particular issues. The menu is also excellent and they children enjoy a varied and healthy menu throughout the week. Every day my son's food report is 'ate all'! I cannot recommend this fabulous nursery enough!

The manager and her team provide the warmest of welcomes every morning and over the past year have become like an extended family to me and my boys. The care and attention my son receives and how he is advancing in terms of his speech, movement and overall coordination is fantastic. My other son will be starting Kids@BT9 in the New Year and I just know he will have a ball and will be 'ruined' with cuddles and cards from all the ladies in nursery - keep up the great work!!

Can't say enough good things about Kids@BT9. Our wee man has been there since 5 months old and loves all the staff as much as they (at times remarkably) appear to love him! Every member of staff is always cheery and loving toward the wee man. They encourage outdoor and mucky play and everything a rough and tumble little boy enjoys. The facilities are first class, only surpassed by the quality of the staff. Our fella isn't always the best eater but loves the good quality food cooked for him. Can't fault the place.

My daughter had been at Kids@BT9 for nearly 11 months, I could not praise the staff highly enough, she is a very happy little girl and every day runs into the wobblers room excited for the day ahead. The variety of activities on offer are fantastic and the outdoor space provided is great as I know my child is getting plenty of fresh air and exercise. Finally, the staff are brilliant, there is a lovely friendly atmosphere within the nursery and all the lovely team are wonderful with her. I love the great bond she had with them all, as a first time parent it can be daunting leaving your baby in daycare for the first time, however, all the staff have made the transition very easy!

My wife and I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. Both our children have attended, and have thrived. When dropping off or picking up, there is always a sense that all the children here are happy. The facilities are immaculate, and the staff, to a number, are second to none.

Very happy with the level of care provided for my daughters over the past two years in all the rooms @BT9, from Babies right up to the pre-school. Healthy, freshly prepared menu for lunches and snacks. My daughters enjoy their time in daycare thanks to the attentive staff who are clearly passionate about childcare, and my daughters are thriving and growing in confidence as a result. The onsite outside play areas are a big plus and the trips for pre-school have been interesting and educational (Lisburn Rd Fire Station and nature walk in Botanic Gardens) or fun filled (cinema).

My daughters have attended Kids@BT9 for almost two years now. Both girls love going every morning and speak fondly of staff, and are excited to spend the day with them. Staff communicate well on the children's days and show great enthusiasm. Good variety in terms of menu for lunches and snacks, all of which prepared fresh on site. Very well thought out activities and visits for the children, well complimented by the onsite facilities.

Kids@BT9 is a warm and caring nursery, run by staff who are more like a family than a team. Always welcoming with a smile and hello.

With my own child, I know that she is with a great team in the room she is currently in. The staff get on brilliantly with my daughter and she is always excited and looking forward to getting into nursery to spend another day with them. They are excellent listeners and pay close attention to information we give them on how my daughter is that day. They also work well with us in the continuing development and care of out daughter. We have seen her blossom more and more in the nursery as time has went on.

Even the meals and snacks that are prepared for her take into account dietary and nutritional needs.

Overall, the manager has done a fantastic job in developing and maintaining Kids@BT9 into such a complete and competent nursery that I would recommend to any parent who wants the best for their child.

I have been very pleased with the care my daughter has received at this nursery since she was approximately nine months old. She had no difficulty settling in and the staff gave her great care and attention. She has continued to enjoy her time there ever since. The food is excellent, nutritious and varied and the staff cater for my daughter's allergy. The activities are fun and imaginative and the facilities are great. My daughter loves going into nursery and clearly has a good relationship with the staff members there. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

Our second child has been enrolled into Kids@BT9. We as parents are very glad and happy that our child is being taken care by safe and professional hands. The staff are exceptional and very much attentive to the kids. It is no surprise that our little one's face brightens up when we arrive the parking lot and our elder child who is now in P4 still find the nostalgia around. We were surprised that the staff still remembered our names and our elder child's name when we arrived to enrol the little one, after 3.5 years!! Much impressed! Highly recommended, without any doubt!

Kids@BT9 is an excellent nursery. Our son attended this nursery at around 9 months of age until he started primary school. Our daughter is still attending. The nursery staff are extremely caring about children. Our son loved every minute of his time there and my daughter loves going every day to spend time with her friends and the staff. Children's dietary and developmental needs are met in this nursery. Myself and my husband always felt our children are safe and well looked after in Kid@BT9. Communication with parents is at it's highest standards. The nursery is always clean and different rooms have adequate facilities to stimulate children and help their development. I have not hesitated in recommending Kids@BT9 to friends and colleagues in the past and would happily do this in the future too!

My son started attending Kids@BT9 in August 2014 and has progressed through all the rooms, and now attends the pre school. My daughter started in June 2016. Both of my children have fantastic relationships with the staff, who are kind, attentive and enthusiastic. The girls work tirelessly to ensure the children are well stimulated, whilst providing a safe and secure environment for them to learn and develop. Having a cook on site ensures my kids are getting home cooked meals every lunch time, and a vast array of snacks to allow them to try new tastes and textures. I genuinely couldn't recommend Kids@BT9 enough, my kids just love it!

Our son has attended Kids@BT9 since November 2015 and very quickly adapted to the daily routine. The daily interaction with others is something he wouldn’t get otherwise, which is great for his social development.
From his daily journal, we have seen that he gets the opportunity to experience lots of different activities , further enhancing both his fine motor and language skills. From a nutritional perspective, he has been trying a vast range of different foods, with an onsite cook to prepare fresh meals daily. Our son is a healthy and highly positive boy who thoroughly enjoys his time spent in nursery!

I cannot recommend Kids@BT9 highly enough. It is a fantastic day nursery. Both my daughters have been here since they were 6 months old and absolutely love it. It is managed superbly and the staff are friendly, caring and kind. The facilities are clean and modern and there is a large outdoor play area for the kids to run around in. All meals are cooked on site from fresh ingredients and the menu is healthy and varied. I teach in a nearby school and many of my colleagues also send their children to the nursery. We are all very happy with how our children are learning here. My eldest child surprises me all the time with the range of concepts and vocabulary she has learned and we have made the decision to enrol her for the Pre-School as we are so happy with her progress. Do not hesitate to choose Kids@BT9 - I am so glad that we did!

Kids@BT9 have provided a warm and nurturing environment for my daughter since she started there at 11 months. The nursery is bright, clean and welcoming and having had experience of the babies, wobblers and now the tweenies rooms I know the high standard of care is carried out throughout the nursery. The staff have always been brilliant and taken time to get to know my daughter well to ensure she is happy whilst at nursery. Watching her eager to go to nursery each morning, and the way she is greeted with smiles and hugs by the staff, leaves me in no doubt that she is comfortable and content.
The nursery provides an excellent, nutritionally balanced menu for the children and there are brilliant and safe outdoor play areas.
Overall it is an excellent nursery and one which I would highly recommend.

My daughter loves coming to daycare. Staff are amazing and loves everyone of them. At pick up time we get to see what she has been up to. She has also learnt so much she could barely crawl when she joined now she is walking and talking away.

My Daughter has been going to this nursery for last 1.5 years. She is so happy to see the staff each day. I feel that she is safe and happy. The staff are always friendly and will always take the time to update me on my daughter's day. When I ask her who are your friends at nursery she tells me a staff name. And that makes my day a lot easier knowing that when I can't be there she is still showered with attention. I feel like the staff are attentive and have really gotten to know my daughter.

Since we are so confident and happy with Kids@BT9 we are continuing her pre school at the same place.

Staff are always so welcoming, very cheerful. Weather eating in the morning or after a long day looking after the noisy 2-3 year olds. They get lots of stimulation and our son comes home with something new he has learned every day.

Kids@BT9 is a fantastic nursery. My son has been there since he was 7 months old and is only leaving this summer, age 3 due to starting preschool. He has loved his time here and runs in every morning. All the staff have taken such good care of him and helped him reach his maximum potential. The staff are caring, enthusiastic and good fun. Jill McWilliams is an excellent manager and has made us feel welcome and comfortable to leave our son in her care since we first met her. The facilities, toys and activities are really good and the food is varied, healthy and interesting. I highly recommend Kids@BT9.
