Reviews

9.1 Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.093)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.617 for Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.617

  • 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 4.476 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery is based on 6 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 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.476

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

I am overall happy with the nursery staff and management. My child is always eager to get to nursery. I have one suggestion to make. At the end of the day, when parents come to pick up their kids, we do get a feedback from the staff on what all kids ate and when did they slept, which is very nice to have. But if we could also get a feedback on what new activity or stuff the kids did that day, would be great. Like they did learn some painting, did messy play or some dancing etc. Or what did the child do new today.

The best decision I made moving my sixteen-month-old to Kiddies' Cabin. Staff have been great from the get-go. I know my child is safe, taken care of and developing new skills so often. Will highly recommend the nursery to all parents without any hesitation.

Our daughter is very happy at Kiddies' Cabin. It is a lovely nurturing environment and she is looked after very well. We are very happy with the policies and procedures they follow, and the communication we get from the carers is great. Kiddies' Cabin was recommended to us by friends and we would happily recommend this nursery to others.

The children's safety is most important and they are good with that. The reason why I am not so happy to recommend the nursery is that I think they are just doing the minimum. The activities are not creative and nothing is really organised, they are just watching the kids. They could do much more.

Leigh Kelly, Nursery Manager at Kiddies' Cabin Day Nursery responded to this review on 15 Nov 2017:

Kiddies’ Cabin provides a wide range of activities and learning opportunities for the children. This is reflected in the learning journeys, artwork and photographs displayed around the nursery.

Practitioners take pride in their roles and responsibilities, providing opportunities that support the 7 areas of learning.

Practitioners engage with the children and ensure the environment is stimulating, interactive and fun.

Parents are invited to provide feedback to the nursery manager which supports self-reflection and service delivery.

Our daughter has been going to Kiddies Cabin for one year and she has loved it. She has a great relationship with all the staff and they are very helpful.
They have a great programme of activities and lots of artwork. My daughter did lots of phonics this year and this has really got her prepared for school.

Kiddies Cabin Maidenhead is a welcoming friendly fun place for your children to learn and flourish. The whole team are hard working and committed to each child. The time the staff take to build relationships with the children is unremarkable. My child has been at Kiddies Cabin since 2015 and he has grown and developed with the help of all the staff into a smart inquisitive young boy. When asking him what's he has done that day he reels off a list of things they have done (sometimes endless) Reading painting playing singing and he does so with such excitement. The whole nursery is kept clean to a very high standard and the children's rooms are more than adequate to stimulate and engage the children. I can honestly say I feel it's is a safe and caring environment for my child to be in and have no concerns in regard to the care of my child when in their care. Fantastic staff and a fantastic place :)

My daughter recently started at the nursery. She has settled remarkably well and so quickly for her young age (12 months). The warm welcome in the morning to the many cuddles and fun games make this a wonderful environment for her to thrive in. Her carers are a great professional face for the nursery and demonstrate genuine care for us a family unit. We feel very lucky that both our children have had the joy of attending this nursery and would happily recommend them.

I am thrilled with the care that my son receives at Kiddie Cabin. The staff are fantastic and have a brilliant bond with him, this is evident by the fact he goes running into nursery every morning and is genuinely happy to see everyone. Seeing my son so happy and content has certainly made my return to work so much easier.

My daughter has been at the nursery for 18 months so has been through three different rooms and we have nothing but praise for the care she has received in nurturing her to love her days there.
Being on one level and easy access to the garden was really important to us, it's light airy and they choose to go outside.
Staff are amazing and I would highly recommend anyone considering childcare to just go and look around.

Both my children have attended Kiddies Cabin, as one moved on to school my youngest started there. I have never had to worry about either of my kids when they are in the care of the KC staff, they all genuinely love the children and offer support for parents at the same time. Going back to work after having your first child is a big deal, I remember looking around Kiddies Cabin and all the children seemed genuinely cheerful, this made leaving my precious first child at nursery at 1 years old so much easier. I still love Kiddies Cabin 5 years later and would recommend it to any of my friends.
