    • 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 4.889 for Kinder Haven Ltd @ Westgate Hill is calculated as follows: ( (513 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 577 Ratings = 4.889

      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 Kinder Haven Ltd @ Westgate Hill is calculated as follows:

      1. 49 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 49 Positive Reviews = 4.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (49 Positive Reviews ÷ 52 Children) x 2 = 1.885 (maximum score = 1)

My child has come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery in particular with his speech. He has developed close bonds with the staff and often says how one is his best friend. He loves going to nursery and asks to go everyday even at the weekend. I highly recommend the nursery and would definitely send my daughter.

Our little boy started 1 afternoon and 1 morning a week when he was 8 months old he is nearly 2 now and we have loved it for him since the first day. The staff are so nice they genuinely seem to care about our little boy his developments and achievements. Our little boy is due to move upstairs soon and as parents we are feeling apprehensive about this as he is so settled where he is and they have known him so long but hopefully the transition will be good and out little boy will remain there until school age.

My son moved from a childminder to Kinder Haven in December. He was very clingy and I was concerned he would not settle, however, he loved Kinder Haven and the staff made him feel comfortable from the onset. The nursery has a wonderful friendly, yet professional, atmosphere where learning and development underly all activities. Since December I've noticed a huge improvement in my son's confidence, social skills and language development. His clinginess is no longer an issue. The nursery has been very flexible with my work rota, which differs from week to week, and always accommodate early/late drop off/pick ups. I could not recommend Kinder Haven enough.

My little girl has been attending Westgate Hill since she was 6 months old, when I had to return to work full time. As a first time mother I felt very guilty about having to leave my baby in child care at such a young age. The staff at Kinder Haven helped me change my whole opinion on the situation and I now see her attending Nursery as a huge benefit to her. She absolutely loves it, her smile beams on a morning and she is more than happy to wave good bye to me, as a mother, I couldn't ask for anything more.
The girls work so hard, and do a wonderful job of looking after all the children. I can see how much they care for each child and they always have a smile on their face, they even take the time to ask me how my day has been. I couldn't praise them highly enough
The Nursery is always clean, tidy and welcoming. I am more than happy with the nursery and I highly recommend it to others.

The induction process was considered and thorough. The staff are attentive and professional but also very caring towards my daughter. She has attended the nursery since July 2015 and has enjoyed all the activities. She is now 19 months old and knows her keyworkers name. All I have to do is ask if she wants to go to nursery to see her keyworker and she is running to the door. We have specific dietary requirements, which all the staff have been very keen to help implement into their menu and our daughter is thriving in every way. I couldn't recommend this nursery and its staff more.

Our twin boys have been at kinderhaven for about two and a half years. As first time parents we often have questions to ask about the progress our boys are making and for helpful tips and strategies regarding assisting them with their development. We have always found staff and management very approachable and pleased to help.

The nursery is always clean and our boys are always exhausted after attending due to them being so busy. Would recommend to everyone.

I am extremely happy with the care my daughter receives at Kinder Haven. All staff show determination and dedication towards each individual child. There are many contributing factors to why I would recommend this nursery for others. For example 1) the safety of children and cleanliness 2) the menu for the children diet 3) the welcome that every child receives on a day to day basis 4) the hard work and commitment that all staff put into each child, including the staff who maybe training who work at a continuously high level. The main reason I would recommend, speaking on a personal level, the actual progression each child (from personal experience) develops after attending this nursery over a short period of time.

I cannot recommend Kinder Haven highly enough. Our daughter has been going to Kinder Haven since she was 19 month old (she's now 4 yrs). During this time we've seen her confidence and self esteem grow. We've moved house twice and had another baby during this time and the staff at Kinder Haven have been very supportive, working in partnership with us to help our daughter adjust to the changes she's experienced at home. They actively encourage all parents to be involved with their child's learning and take the time to foster close relationships with parents and children alike.

Our daughter also has a severe food allergy. The team have been incredibly thorough, ensuring all staff are trained and that the food menu is risk free on the days our daughter attends. When she's in their care, we have complete peace of mind - essential when you have to leave a child with a life threatening allergy in someone else's care.

Our daughter loves going and has made some really good friends, I know she'll really miss everyone (staff and friends alike) when she starts school this September. We will too!

My twin boys have being going to this nursery since they were 7 months old. They are now 2 and have loved every day they have spent at Kinder Haven. The staff are affectionate and very patient with the children and my boys have a very good relationship with them. They always do so many creative activities and there's plenty of outdoor playtime.

I would like to recommend Kinder Haven for Several reasons. Staff genuinely care for the children and their development and happiness. Whether its through play, learning or just extra cuddles to make them feel secure. Whatever time you drop off and collect your child they are engaging in safe, appropriate activities and my daughter loves those who look after her - a telling endorsement. The staff also keep your informed which is important to you as a parent. Well done and professional all round.

Kinder Haven is a brilliant nursery, my little boy loves it and has come along so well since he started nearly 4 years ago! The staff are lovely and friendly and always tell me what he's been getting up to at nursery, and are always interested to know the things he likes to get up to outside of nursery too. I couldn't recommend Kinder Haven highly enough, my little boy has always been really happy there and I'm very happy with the care he receives.

My son is 18 months old and loves coming to nursery. He always gets excited when we arrive in the car park!!
The staff have taken their time to get to know my son and plan for his developmental progress. Regular daily reports and interactive sessions make it easy to get to know staff as well as what my son has done on day to day basis. We would recommend Kinder Haven to anyone and have done!

My two son's attend this nursery and have done from them both been 9 months old. My oldest son is nearly 3 and my youngest is 17 months old, both my boys love going to nursery and all the staff are always welcoming and friendly, there is always a lovely fun relaxed atmosphere.
The children's needs are paramount to the staff therefore each child's individual needs are always met and parents wishes taken on board, this is done through daily reports, verbal handovers, parent consultations and parent interactive sessions which are great fun.
My oldest son has had to have some speech and language input, the staff worked closely with the therapist to promote his speech, so not only do staff build and encourage good parent relationships but work closely with outside agencies to ensure each child's individual needs are met. My boys also have dairy intolerance the staff have always ensured their dietary requirements are catered for and provide a healthy nutritious menu.
I have built a lovely parent relationship with the staff and my boys have strong bonds with the staff in their rooms, which enables me to go to work with the piece of mind that my boys are happy, safe and in a fun learning environment, what more could a mum ask for!!!!!!!

Kinder Haven is a safe, caring, fun nursery. My son loves being at there. Each room is age specific with great equipment, which is updated regularly. Learning through play is paramount and my son has thrived at this nursery. The outdoor play area is big enough with a variety of outdoor games, bikes etc. along with the neighbouring horses. The meal plan offered is healthy. All in all a lovely environment for your little one!
