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 4.738 for Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (62 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.738

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bury St Edmunds Day Nursery is based on 7 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.417

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

My two children are extremely happy at this nursery. The staff have not only been very warm and friendly but also extremely helpful and accommodating. They have supported both my children and me through a difficult time.
One of my children has had some anxiety issues and their Keyworker has been wonderful in working with us and my child to support us.

My son has been extremely happy since he started at Kids Play in the baby room at 7 months old.
He moved up to the toddler room at Christmas and still loves attending. He gets involved in lots of activities; getting very messy which he loves. He always has a belly full of food too.
The staff and management have been great if any concerns or issues have arisen.

Our son has been attending the nursery since he was 10 months old and we are so happy with our decision. From day 1, the girls have made us feel comfortable and individual. My son isn't just a number - he is a valued member of the Kids Play family. Nearly 2 years on, he has just had 2 tasters of pre-school and he is so happy to be making the move - which I know is down to the care and support the girls give here.

My son (28 months) has been attending Kids Play since November 2017. He had never been looked after by anyone except family prior to this. All the staff at Kids Play were fantastic when he started and have taken the time to get to know my son and all his little traits. They have paid him lots of attention as he didn't settle in the early days. My son attends 3 days a week now and absolutely loves it, I struggle getting him home! All the staff are fantastic and give regular updates about my son's progress both in his diary and online interactive learning journal. They even reassure me on the numerous phone calls I make a day to check on my son!
There are always plenty of interesting activities for the children to get involved with and are regularly encouraged to explore in their own ways. There is always freshly prepared, healthy food for the children and they are encouraged to sit at the table with each other and interact.
I would recommend Kids Play to anyone.
