Reviews

4.7 Kids Capers Day Nursery has a Review Score of 4.7 (4.729)

The Review Score of 4.7 (maximum of 10) for Kids Capers Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids Capers Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.729 for Kids Capers Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Capers Day Nursery is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0

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

The team were excellent while my daughter, who now loves nursery, was settling in. She had not been away from me before and they were fabulous. She now loves nursery and after each session I hear how much she has been doing from playing with sand, glitter and glue to being outside or in the sensory room. A massive thank you to the staff, knowing she enjoys it, makes leaving her, a tiny bit easier.

Both my sons have attended this nursery - my youngest one still does. The environment is warm, bright and colourful. There is good outdoor space which, while not extensive is well used and interesting. The staff are caring and professional, and they know the children judging by parents evenings and informal feedback. Even though we have moved a little further from the nursery I continue to use them as I feel very confident in their ability to care for my child. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

I am a mother to a 3 year old boy in the Rainbow room of kids capers. My son first started in the Sunshine room aged 7 months and has been going full time ever since.
My son is always happy to be at nursery and has made some wonderful friends, as have I. I have never had to fight with him, to go to nursery, but often have to drag him out as he doesn’t want to leave!

In the Rainbow room, every day is different. They have stations set up so the children can move around freely joining in activities as they wish, the have free access in and out of the fantastic gardens that are secure, partially covered and very highly maintained.
They have a sensory room, a story room, interactive television, story headsets and every toy imaginable! The nursery is always clean, and seems very well organised. Staff seem happy and are very friendly.
Due to the location, the nursery also have access to the playground next door and the woodlands that adjoin the grounds. As the nursery manager is training to be a Forest School Leader, they are in the woods weekly, learning about animals, nature, woodlands as well as gardening and okaying games.

The nursery also have a minibus, that they use for trips out. My son has been to Beaver Water World, Nutfield Priory Farm nature trail, Glovers Woods and Santa’s grotto in the town. He, like all the children love the trips. In addition to trips out, the nursery also organise an annual visit from the local fire station, the fire fighters bring a fire engine and let the kids on board an spray the hoses, whilst learning about fires.

There is so much I haven’t even included, regular parents evenings, on-line secure learning journals that you can view and add to, summer Tea parties, fancy dress days, face painting, baking, Christmas Show, BBQ’s, the list could go on…

I would highly recommend this nursery. We see them as out extended family. My son calls it ‘Nursery home’ – Says it all!

After initial teething problems with the nursery we believe they have taken on board feedback and enhanced the experience for both of our children and ourselves. A majority of staff are very approachable and helpful in assisting with queries, in particular the use of the reward chart to encourage good behaviour. We will be sending our third child in the future there as well as we believe that there is a good approach to the care and development of the children.

Very friendly staff, I never worry about leaving my son here as I know he is in good hands and looked after very well. He is always very happy when I pick him up and tells me about different things they do at nursery.

Thank you to Kids Capers Nursery and all the amazing staff for providing such fantastic care for my Daughter and previously my Son. Both of my Children have benefited so much from the environment, atmosphere and routines provided. Recently my Daughter moved up into another room at nursery and the transition was flawless! She has completely embraced the change and I put this down to the way it is managed by the staff. She is already singing all the new songs, has made new friends and is very excited to tell me what she has learnt or done each day! I believe that the interaction with other children and adults, combined with the routines and learning opportunities provided are a fantastic base for any child prior to starting school. It certainly proved to be the case with our Son who will soon be 7! Thank you again, for all you do for our children. :-) I must add that I love the 'Tapestry' online learning journal! The perfect way to record development, share moments and keep in close contact.

Very good nursery with caring and competent staff. I have always received developmental information on my child and the staff have always been very helpful. The way the nursery teaches the children is excellent.
