The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Peterborough is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Peterborough in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 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 4.833 for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Peterborough is calculated as follows: ( (182 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.746 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Peterborough is based on 17 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 22.8 positive Reviews (114 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 22.8 Target = 0.746

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

Kiddi Caru was not the cheapest option but having viewed 6 other nurseries, Kiddi Caru stood out. I spent weeks deciding and finally took the leap. Best decision ever. Staff are amazing and very approachable. My son had settling-in issues but was supported all the way. If I have more children there would be no doubt that I would use Kiddi Caru. There is no value on a child's safety and happiness.

My daughter enjoys coming into nursery every day! The staff and especially my daughter's key carer are so attentive and show such great care towards my daughter. They give informative handovers at the end of each day and make us parents feel comforted to know that our child is so cared for and she thoroughly enjoys her days here!

Our son has made significant progress since joining Kiddi Caru in Peterborough. He has formed strong bonds with some practitioners and often mentions them in conversations at home. He has also grown in confidence and made new friends easily. We are very pleased with the level of care our son is enjoying but we are also impressed with the way the nursery is managed.

I have a 3-year-old who has attended since 10 months. The nursery has experienced and friendly staff who are pros at understanding each child's needs. My son has had extra support reading as identified as 'gifted' and this has helped him excel.

My son has attended since he was 10 months old. The settling in period was really good for both him and me, which made the transition of returning to work a lot easier knowing he was happy and extremely well cared for. All the staff at Kiddi Caru are fantastic, they always have time to talk and discuss any concerns you have. They are engaging and creative with play and my son loves going to the nursery. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough.

The staff are extremely professional and friendly, ensuring the children feel secure and safe during their time there. The staff made me feel relaxed when leaving my child and always give detailed feedback about his day.
I always feel that the staff listen to me and are approachable. I couldn't be happier with the care my child receives and I'd recommend to everyone.

I have been using this nursery for many years. I have found the staff very friendly and approachable. They are very supportive of different issues involving the children, with development, school and home life.
The activities and opportunities given to the children I feel are excellent and provide an exceptional background for their future school life.
I would always recommend this nursery to friends and family.

My two children attend Kiddi Caru and thoroughly enjoy their time there. The staff are always incredibly professional, polite and friendly. Both children settled into the nursery and as a family, we have great bonds with many of the staff. Nothing is ever a problem and staff always make time for us. Our children are very comfortable and happy here.

I'm very happy with my experience in the nursery. My daughter is very clingy and had never been away from me, but the nursery staff have all been excellent and within the first week she was very happy, content and settled. My daughter is always happy to come to nursery.

My son has attended KiddiCaru since January 2016 aged 3 years and 3 months. Staff have welcomed him and myself to the rooms and nursery since starting. The staff have worked well with myself and his dad with any conversations we have had with them helping focus on particular activities we have asked to help develop our sons progress.

My son is confident when leaving him within the preschool room. Making me feel at ease to leave him for the day.
Would recommend this nursery to other parents within the area.
Activities have been catered for my son's individuals needs e.g cooking.
All activities are made enjoyable for the children and most nights my son comes home very excited and telling his parents what he has been doing throughout the day.

My little boy has been here since he was 4 months, he is now 2 years 3 months. He is only in one day a week but could not recommend this nursery enough. The staff are amazing can tell they really genuinely care. Really don't have to worry about my little boy when he's there. It has a lovely garden and sensory room each take hes had a huge variety of foods I can never meet the expectation of that at home. Have another baby due in December and would never let either of them go anywhere else until school! He learns new things every day and has such a good time. Brilliant nursery.
