Reviews

7.4 Play Station Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.4 (7.354)

The Review Score of 7.4 (maximum of 10) for Play Station Day 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Play Station Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.854 for Play Station Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.854

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Play Station Day Nursery is based on 8 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 1.000 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

With such a lovely friendly family feel to the PSDN I have had no problem in sending my now 4 year old and 3 year old there from the ages of 2yrs & 1yr. I have felt that as well as being a "professional" environment for my children to be cared for & educated by they have also learned key life skills like fun, laughter, caring, how to build relationships with all ages & respect for others feelings & belongings also how to themselves deal with feelings & emotions. I have also personally had help & support from the team. The tapestry system is excellent & means we get to feel more involved in every part of the girls learning & development, it is so nice to be able to see pictures of some of the lovely activities my girls get to be part of during their days at PSDN, It really is just a perfect environment for my children to start there journey on the educational & life ladder, I am certain they will both leave wonderfully equipped to start big school (although very sad to leave the team).

My child has recently started attending the nurseries and the staff have been excellent in this transition. Every day my child enjoys being dropped off and attending and always has wonderful stories about the activities through out his day.

I have already recommended the nursery to so many of my friends who have children and told them how good the nursery are with everything they have done for us and what they do to help children. As I was recommended by other people who came to the nursery and how much help they got for one of their children.

Both my daughters have loved coming to play station. They've had lots of fun but also learnt a lot. As a mother I couldn't ask for a better place to leave my children to go to work. Friendly staff and flexible hours! Very happy.

Play Station nursery is by far the best nursery around. My son had built a great relationship with all staff members and the other children in preschool. His speech has progressed dramatically since attending preschool. His learning is coming on nicely!

My eldest daughter attended Play Station between September 2012 and August 2014, and my youngest daughter started in September 2014 and has just moved up to the pre school room.
The nursery is a fabulous setting. All the staff are helpful, approachable and friendly.
Both my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed spending time here. To be honest, when I come to collect my daughter, she doesn't want to leave! And as I pick my eldest daughter up from school first and she's with me, she doesn't want to leave either!

It's like a home away from home, with constant changing activities and always something new to do every time she goes in. Never are two days the same. Not only that but the friendly staff are always happy to help, regardless of what the problem is.

I'm really happy with Playstation nursery, my daughter is always happy to attend and does some wonderful activities that we can't do at home.
The staff are always happy to give full feedback at the end of the day
The food is always varied and healthy and freshly cooked
The new online system is also excellent and gives instant updates as to how they are getting on.
The days are fun but involve lots of learning as well
