  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.583 for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Whiteley is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.41 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Whiteley 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 26.8 positive Reviews (134 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 26.8 Target = 0.410

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

My grandson has had a lovely time at the nursery, he has now gone up to the preschool but has had a great time in the other rooms too.
The staff are so very caring and have helped with our difficult family situation and have spent much time with him. The learning is great too and the managers are lovely and always have time to listen. I could not have picked a better nursery.

My son has really enjoyed his days at nursery and he always comes home happy due to the excellent care given to him by the staff especially his key carer. There is always a range of activities provided for him to develop his learning through play and a wide range of sensory/messy play. He has opportunities to play outside in all weathers and also to access the wonderful sensory room every week.

Both my daughters attend this nursery and are both excited to come.
The girls that look after my daughters have a lovely relationship with them and always welcome them when they come in. In the evening when I collect them, I get a hand over talking about their day and they always do so many different activities, paint, garden, jelly play, dressing up, water and sand. The food is always varied and the girls love it.

My daughter has attended the nursery since she was 11 months old. She has been cared for with warmth and genuine concern. I feel completely confident leaving her for the day and she always tells me she had fun. The staff are confident to talk about the progress that my daughter has made and have a clear understanding of her strengths and interests.

My daughter started going here at 8 months and has only just left for school. She enjoyed her time there thoroughly and being a working mum, it made me feel better knowing that she was being cared for so well.

This is our second child to finish their nursery/pre-school experience at Kiddi Caru Whiteley. She has attended since 8 months old and we have been incredibly pleased by her time there. She has loved each key-worker and they in turn have become friends. Cannot find anything negative with our experience. After a total of 6 years of using this nursery we are sad to be parting company with them as our child starts school.

We have 2 boys that attend Fareham (Whiteley) Kiddi Caru (20 months and 4 1/2 yrs). The oldest is leaving shortly to go to "big school".
The staff are very dedicated and professional yet caring, friendly and conscientious. They cater for all our sons needs in the warm, welcoming and safe environment.
There is never any problem in the mornings when we drop them off, which just shows that they really do love their time there.
They are getting a really great start in life and it is lovely to see their confidence, knowledge and experiences growing so quickly.
The facilities are fantastic and are appropriate the age range in the rooms.
The outdoors space is also fantastic and our boys love it when the meet up with each other outside.

They will miss Kiddi Caru greatly when they leave.
You all have our thanks!
