The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Kid Ease Dover Buckland is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kid Ease Dover Buckland in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.886 for Kid Ease Dover Buckland is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.886

  • 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 3.086 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kid Ease Dover Buckland is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.086

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

Lovely friendly staff, well-balanced lunches. My child is very happy in his place at the nursery. He enjoys attending and is learning at a steady rate in his setting. The staff keep me up to date on daily goings on when I pick my child up at the end of the day.

My little boy has attended Kid Ease for only a month. It has been a struggle for him and he is only a year old. Our experience so far has been fantastic! The staff have been amazing to my little boy and myself, and are always so kind to me when I call to check on him. Even after the past few weeks he is starting to settle in really well and loves to play and learn.

Kid Ease at Buckland have been a continued support for my son over the last 4 years. I enjoy seeing my son happy after a day of mentally challenging and physical play. This nursery is very interactive with the parents and the staff are happy to talk about their day so you don't miss a moment. The food is great, allows your child to try new flavours and textures that they may not at home. (i.e. my son eats eggs at school, not at home, Why you ask? NO Idea!) They also are happy for the children to bring items from home on occasion i.e. if your child wants to share a favourite book or holiday snaps with their friends. Overall we are very happy and will be sad when we leave in August.
