Reviews

9.1 Kids & Co Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.132)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Kids & Co Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids & Co Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.811 for Kids & Co Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.811

  • 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 4.321 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids & Co Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.571

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

Kids & Co is a fantastic nursery where our daughter thrived. The staff are very professional and caring. It is clean and the children are very well looked after. There is a lovely outdoor space which they use regularly. My daughter is very sad to leave and loved going there. If I had another child I would certainly send them to Kids and Co!

It is a lovely nursery, I could not recommend this nursery more. We feel part of a very special community as the nursery is not massive and you get to know everyone. The little ones feel that this is their second home. My son started there when he was 2 and is now 3.5 and he loves it. Top 3 characteristics in my view:
- The staff they are all highly qualified and they stay. They know every child and they treat them individually valuing their particular interests and likes.
- Facilities, fantastic outdoor area with forest school, mud kitchen area for messy play etc. During the summer the little ones spend a lot of their time playing outside with water etc... which is lovely.
- The family feel of the nursery is something that it is rare to find. everyone is friendly and welcoming. They also organise events for parents so we get to know each other.

We have seen our children develop into confident, happy little girls under the care and guidance of the staff at Kids & Co which is exemplary in every respect.

Kids & Co offers structured EYFS-focused learning, monitored through good quality regular reporting and ad hoc observations via the Tapestry online journal. There is a strong emphasis on having fun.

The excellent staff are experienced, knowledgeable, sensitive to issues at home, caring and fun.

Facilities are great and staff make use of the local environment for trips out, including to Greenwich Park. Forest school, dance sessions, and football training are firm favourites.

The involvement of parents is encouraged strongly, including through Tapestry observations (which provide focus for discussion and activity) and dedicated mum/dad mornings (enabling working parents to experience the monkeys in their natural habitat).

Our children always look forward to going to Kids & Co, which is without doubt an excellent nursery.

My daughter loves Kids & Co Nursery and so do we. The staff are amazing and many have been there for a long time so they know all the children well. Our daughter gets wonderful personal care and the children are encouraged to play well together as friends across the age groups. Kids & Co encourages a friendly and family orientated atmosphere, and many of the parents know each other as a result. I am delighted at the daily activities they do, from their wonderful forest school to baking, to drama and football and learning how to make sandwiches. The children are happy, stimulated and very well cared for. I highly recommend Kids & Co.

My daughter attends kids & co and absolutely loves it. They do a lot of different and imaginative activities with the kids, often based on the children's interests. The outdoor space is good and they make full use of it. The settling in process was absolutely brilliant. We moved to the area and had to leave our previous nursery which was also excellent. We tried to settle my daughter in another nursery at first, but it was a terrible experience and after a few days I decided that wasn't the right place for my little girl. Fortunately, this coincided with a place becoming available at kids & co, but I was quite nervous about going through the settling in process again. In the end, it was straightforward, the staff was really kind and patient and very soon my 3-year old felt safe and confident. Every morning she looks forward to going to nursery.

Kids & Co Day Nursery is the second nursery we have used. The first was fine but Kids & Co has been excellent. The setting is really homely and the staff are all very warm and caring, but also extremely focused on helping the children to learn a variety of creative ways. Our son had some behaviour problems when our new baby arrived and the staff dealt with it excellently. They were calm, kind and positive, and solved the problem. Our son is very interested in space and the staff devised all sorts of space activities and involved all of the children, our son was thrilled. The forest school area is really educational. The children spend lots of time outside every day, which is unusual for London. Overall a brilliant nursery. We could not have found a better one and look forward to sending our daughter there.

My now four-year-old daughter has been at Kids and Co for just over a year, and my 18-month-old son joined the newly-opened baby room when he was 10 months old. I couldn't be happier with the nursery. The staff, both those in the office and those looking after the children directly, are really experienced and responsive, and communication between parents and staff is excellent. The atmosphere is really relaxed, fun, extremely caring and nurturing, whilst at the same time, high standards of behaviour are expected. The end of my daughter's time at the nursery is fast approaching, but with my son still in the baby room, I am glad I don't have to say a proper goodbye just yet!

Kids & Co is a great nursery. My daughter is very happy and settled and has progressed massively since joining, gaining skills to become more independent and learning to be curious about the world. The activities are imaginative and the children all look very happy. The staff are absolutely fantastic and they happily engage the parents with information on the children and their day. I am so happy with the nursery I am not sure I want her to leave to go to primary school!
