Reviews

8 Activeplay Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (7.993)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Activeplay Nursery 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Activeplay Nursery 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 4.889 for Activeplay Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 3.104 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Activeplay Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.104

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

Recently my youngest child has started at Activeplay Nursery and he has been made to feel very welcome. As he is only 9 months old the staff have asked us what his routine is and they follow this everyday (even when we change it!). All of the staff are very happy to see you in the morning and evening and always greet you with a smile and ask how we are. My son takes part in different activities during his week and these are regularly posted on Tapestry - which is a fantastic way of seeing how my little man is doing at nursery. We also like to share what we do at the weekends. This is my second child who has attended Activeplay and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a nursery for their child.

I would highly recommend Activeplay Nursery to everyone living in the area. First their opening times are great for working parents, second, I know that my son is in safe hands. Staff are so friendly and made us feel very welcome. We're originally from Latvia so my child started nursery without languages, today he speaks better than me:) Best nursery I could wish for my son.

When it was time for me to go back to work I really struggled to leave my daughter with anyone however Active Play nursery staff made it easier for me. When I walked in every morning I was greeted with a genuine smile and my daughter would reach towards the girls showing she felt safe with them. When I got back from work to pick her up I was also greeted with the same smile and I will find my daughter happy playing with other children

Tapestry was updated with pictures and videos regularly which enabled me to easily share with my family and work friends how my daughter is doing at Nursery and see that she is meeting her milestones.

During the search for a nursery for our daughter, it was actually my husband that immediately said "she has to go here" after visiting Activeplay - for him to have such a strong opinion I was in shock! He said that he'd never witnessed 'children in a large group being so polite, calm and happy' - and he was right. Our daughter has been well cared for, engaged with and motivated right from the start. She loves going 'to school' and telling me all about what she's done in a day. My favourite feature of Activeplay is the proper dining room the children use for meal times (the food smells delicious and my daughter always gives me a breakdown of what she's munched in the day) - they also have a library and beautiful garden too. The staff are genuine, friendly and welcoming. On the rare occasions where we've had to ask for a change or extra time, we've been accommodated and I believe that's directly down to the high calibre of staff and the excellent management you will find at Activeplay.

All staff at the Nursery and lovely and go out their way to make sure my daughter is happy during the time that she is there. Nothing is too much for them to do. My daughter would go every day of the week if she could. As a parent I feel that the nursery has her best interests at heart and if I feel concerned about anything they are more then willing to help and give advice where needed. This nursery feels more like a family then a business and I would recommend to anyone looking that they should consider putting their children into this nursery.

Me eldest son attended Activeplay from the age of 11 months until he left to start primary school and my youngest son will be leaving soon to start primary school. The staff have always made us feel welcome and made it easy for me to approach any member of staff to raise any concerns I have had. They are always very flexible and accommodating to mine and my sons needs. The start always take the time each morning to talk to you and to get to know you and your child. I have recommended the nursery to friends and family and will continue to do so. The staff will be greatly missed by myself and my sons.
