  • 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.

    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 4.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Writtle, Chelmsford is based on 18 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 19.8 positive Reviews (99 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 19.8 Target = 0.909

My daughter has attended the nursery since July 2015. She comes home every day full of stories about the fun she has had with her friends. The outside space is amazing and I feel so happy that she can spend so much of her time outside, no matter what the weather. All of the staff are helpful, friendly and polite. Nothing is too much effort!

The staff are welcoming, my child enjoys attending and it's a struggle to get her to leave at the end of the day. The resources - every day outside playing is, I think, invaluable to her learning and development. The staff are accommodating with any requests big or small - teeth cleaning or even a surprise birthday card for me. The atmosphere in all the rooms is first class and no hesitation in leaving her to roam on her own down the corridor on the way out. The staff seem to familiarise themselves with all the children's names, regardless if they're in their class or not. First class childcare and have no hesitation in recommending this nursery. Thank you for making my child's day enjoyable, fun and compliments to the chef for my food monster.

My child enjoys attending 3 days a week.
She enjoys all the activities in pre-school.
It is a shame that the rooms are now so big, as a major part of our reason for sending her was the small room sizes.
In the bigger rooms, the staff appear very tired and its often chaotic at pick up/drop off.
ICT resources are sparse.

As always, my son has had an amazing year at Kiddi Caru. The staff are so amazing, always trying and learning new skills so that the kids are always getting opportunities to try new things. Our boy always comes home super happy and can't wait to tell mummy and daddy all about his day.
I can't give enough praise to the staff at Kiddi Caru and how they have helped our son develop. It is truly amazing.

A lovely nursery with friendly and patient staff. My son has developed so much more since attending nursery and I believe it's helped him with his speech and social skills. The rooms are all a large size with plenty of activities and toys in each one. The garden area is huge and I feel it's important for children to participate in outside play. The food is delicious and my son is always well fed there. Everything is kept clean and the children are encouraged to play together and take part in what is going on.

My son has been attending since 12 months and I always have complete confidence in the care he will receive.
He also learns new skills which aid his learning development and any areas to focus on are raised.
The care is individual to suit each child's needs. I love that my son gets to spend lots of time outside.

My daughter has been going to the nursery for the last 10 months. As soon as we pull in the car park & she sees the trees she gets excited and screams with laughter as she loves going to nursery!

We always get let in face to face by a member of the team & are always welcomed and greeted with a smile.

The nursery has their own large built in fish tank at the children's height in reception so we say hello & goodbye to them everyday counting how many fish we can see.

When we enter my daughters room we are greeted as we come in & we talk to the team about what we have been up to & how my daughter has been since we last saw them. The staff are really approachable & friendly & you can tell they really care.

We just had a parents evening where we looked through scrap books with all of her artwork in and photos of her time at nursery & a folder showing where she is at developmentally. We are really pleased with her progress & this is all down to the teams hard work.
