  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.748 for Kids Incorporated is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.748

  • 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 4.056 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Incorporated is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target = 0.556

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

Reviewer Connection to Kids Incorporated

  • Mother of Child

I moved my 14-month-old here, following two months at another nursery which wasn't quite up to par. We looked at several places and chose Kids Inc because the staff and children seemed really relaxed and happy, and the manageress/owner is so knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. Seven months on and we've not been disappointed, Kids Inc is fantastic.
My son loves going there, the staff work closely so they all know him well. Having a max. of 27 kids also means they get to know all the other children, when we arrive there's always a warm welcome from kids of all ages.
He's come on leaps and bounds with mobilising, talking and learning to play with others. The app they use (little vista) is brilliant, I can look during the day and see almost hourly updates on his care, learning and pics too! When he's been poorly they keep me informed of what's going on.
There's so much for the kids to do in each room, it's a like a life-size playhouse. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

Having sent my daughter to this nursery when she was two while I went back to work, there was no question where to send my son.

Brilliant nursery and great workers who are friendly and teach children very well. Love it.

Our little boy has attended Kids Inc for about 6 months now. All the staff are lovely and care a lot for him. He was difficult to settle but we stuck at it. Our son is really happy here and we don't want to move him on when he's ready for playschool :D Xxx

Kids Incorporated is a happy, friendly and welcoming environment for children. I am so incredibly happy I chose to send both my children here. They have grown individually and go through every step to prepare them for a smooth transition to school. The staff are incredible. My children love going to nursery and that is the best testament to the work they do.

I love this nursery and more importantly my daughter loves going. She goes three days a week and the things she learns and does at nursery is far more than I could do for her. They've really helped with her 'sharing' abilities and encouraging her speech. She has made lovely friends there too. I also know I could contact/ speak to any member of staff and they would be really helpful and they give really good advice.

I love the relationships my son has formed here with children and the key workers. They are so caring and genuinely want what's best for the children. There is always a lot of activities for the kids to do and my son's development is amazing thanks to this.

Kids Incorporated is brilliant. My son was 9 months and wasn't sitting by himself when he first attended. I was very scared but in a matter of days I felt reassured. We have moved home and no longer live close to the nursery however still drive 15 minutes so that our son can attend as we wouldn't want him to change nurseries. I would recommend the nursery to everyone with children in Totton.
