The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Bedford is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Bedford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 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 4.621 for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Bedford is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.621

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.733 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Bedford is based on 11 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.733

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

My daughter has attended Kiddi Caru since she was 5 months old. She is now leaving the nursery to go to school. My daughter has absolutely loved going to nursery. The care the staff give to the child is fantastic. My daughter loves all her carers and she will miss them so much. I cannot thank the nursery enough for all they have done for my daughter. I know she will do great at school thanks to the input the staff put into my daughters learning.

My son and daughter have both attended this nursery. My daughter had excellent support from her key carer before she attended school. My son still currently attends and he really enjoys his days there. The staff are supporting him with his potty training and speech development.

My little one has attended Kiddi Caru since she was 1 and a half years old. I can truly say it was the best choice I have made for her. She has learnt so much and every day, she is still bringing home something new. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
They can prepare your kids for school. Nice big garden with lots of toys. If I have another one, I will definitely send him/her to this nursery.

Kiddi Caru is a wonderful and friendly nursery. My daughter has not long started but she enjoys every second that she is there. The staff are amazing and I know she is safe with them. They work well together to fulfil all the needs of all the children with the nursery. There is plenty of space for the children to spread out and explore their imaginations. The food is freshly cooked daily and a range of food is provided to suit each child's dietary needs.

I took my 11month to Kiddi Caru Day Nursery where she started in the "Koala Room", she has now progressed as a Kookaburra. I have always been very pleased with the level of care and think all the girls/nursery nurses do a great job. At the end of the day you get a review, what she has eaten, nap times and what they have played with that day. My little girl loves it there and gets so much out of the 2 full days in which she goes. She learns so much and I am so pleased with my choice in choosing Kiddi Caru Day Nursery I wouldn't have her anywhere else. They do a top job!
