Reviews

9.9 Platform One Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.875)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Platform One Nursery Ltd 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Platform One Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.875 for Platform One Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Platform One Nursery Ltd 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target Reached = 1

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

The manager and her team have made the transition for my little ones first time in nursery, and my return to work, a great experience, and for that, I am very grateful. The nursery is like home from home and is always kept clean and tidy, with lots of bright visual displays and suitable toys for her to play with. You can see that her keyworkers really compliment each other and work very well together. They constantly keep my little one entertained with different educational activities throughout the day and keep me updated with what she has been up to. Overall we are both happy with our experience of the nursery so far. Thank you.

My son has been going to Platform One Nursery for a year now and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The girls in the baby and toddler rooms are absolutely brilliant. They know and love my child and I can see that they respect his needs and likes and dislikes. Management and staff retention are excellent which means that the children do not see unfamiliar, agency staff every now and then. Children numbers are also relatively low which makes it a homey and warm environment for the little ones. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough!

I have had one or more children at Platform One since 2012 and have been consistently impressed with the love, nurture and care that the staff there have shown to my children. Being able to leave the children in an environment where they have felt safe, loved and happy has meant that I have been able to hop on the train to work without any hang-ups.
The management team are very responsive; I recently suggested that they consider a refresh of the ICT resources for the children and they quickly responded with new touchscreen tablets for use in supporting the children’s learning.
Highly recommended.

Platform One is a fantastic nursery. I have two children who attend (toddler and baby). The staff are incredibly caring, helpful, friendly, enthusiastic, energetic and the kids love them! There are two rooms, with a lovely outdoor play area for both age groups. The menu is impressive, with lots of variety. I really do recommend this nursery.

My first born daughter attended this nursery and now my younger daughter has just started too. Lovely little nursery with good facilities and friendly staff. I feel more comfortable that it is not too big. Both my daughters love the nursery.

My 16 month old son has been in the baby room for 2 months. He has settled really quickly and I have felt completely confident in the staff which has made my transition to work so much easier. The staff in the baby room are fantastic and already seem to know my son well. They have all worked there for a long time which is reassuring and staff turnover is very low. The baby room is small with a home from home feeling.

The staff arrange lots of activities like water play, arts and crafts, outdoor play and baking. They leave really sweet entries in his log book each week so I know what they've been up to. They communicate well with parents asking permission to go on outdoor trips and informing of any illness or accidents promptly.

I would definitely recommend to others and I'm sure I will send number 2 there eventually!
