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 4.763 for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes is calculated as follows: ( (205 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 262 Ratings = 4.763

  • 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 4.87 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes is based on 12 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.870

  • 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 was attending a different nursery but I switched her to Kiddi Caru. I couldn't have made a better decision as they are much more of a better fit for our family.
Inclusive activities and very family friendly. My daughter has really come on leaps and bounds! All the staff are friendly and you can tell they really care about the children they provide for. The food they provide is really great and I love all the themed activities and special days they promote. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Knowing my son and how difficult it is with stranger, the nursery was able to handle him. Within a few days he started and much happier when he comes home and very neat as well.

We have just recently enrolled our little toddler into the nursery and so far have been extremely satisfied. All the staff, along with the management appear very friendly, organised and helpful; always smiling and this shows as all the children appear happy, content and cared for. Our little one has settled in very well, interacting with others and enjoying all the delicious meals he has. So far so great. Keep up the good work everyone and thank you.

My son really enjoyed his time here. After moving from Liverpool, he fit in really well and made loads of friends (that he now goes to school with) he loved his nursery nurses who were amazing, spent one on one time with him as well as group activities.

He was always talking about nursery and still asks to go back and see everyone. One nursery nurse, in particular, was his favourite and I thought it was brilliant that they had a male nursery nurse (as my son comes from 2 families full of women) he really listened to all the stories he had.

I couldn’t have found a better nursery for him to attend. They really love all the children in there and I felt that my son was safe there. Thank you so much for all the work you do and tantrums you deal with, I couldn’t be more appreciative of everything you all do. Thank you.

We came to the UK two years ago. At the time my daughter was 15 months old and I wanted her to learn the language as soon as possible. However, I was also hesitant as I had never left my child in anybody else's care before and was not sure which nursery was best for her to attend. I enrolled her at Kiddi Caru in Walnut Tree, still unsure if it was the right nursery.

After two years of my child going to this nursery, I can say with certainty that the work the staff are doing is fantastic and my child has learnt skills that I would not have imagined she would have gained at that young age. She learnt how to function more independently, learned the language and became more social. The staff are friendly and supportive and actually do activities that help children develop skills. Last but not least, the manager has always been by our side catering to our needs. I would most definitely recommend this nursery.

Very good nursery. Lovely staff, genuinely interested in child's wellbeing. Very caring. Healthy varied meals. Lots of activities. Would like it if they took children for more outdoor walks/outings.

We are happy and satisfied with this nursery. Our son does always look very happy there. The only negative is, that morning staff seem to be very busy so they don't look welcoming enough for kids.

I've got 2 kids, one of them is 3 months and the other is 3 years. I am working full-time. When I was thinking of going back to work and leaving my little baby with someone else, I was scared. What would be my choices? nanny or babysitter. Then I made a visit to Kiddi Caru Nursery. I was very hesitant. How can I leave my kids in a nursery? but I made the decision. I can't explain, how do I feel? I am very happy. They take care of my sons better than me! Clean, food with different types, etc. Very good education is provided to my older boy and a lot of care to my little one, he is now 9 months. I highly recommend Kiddi Caru for every family who is concerned about their kids.
