Reviews

8.6 Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.561)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school 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 Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.755 for Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 94 Ratings = 4.755

  • 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 3.806 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.306

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

My daughter loves it at Kiddywinks nursery. The staff are all very helpful, friendly and support both the children and parents. There is so much for children to do and lots of areas for them to explore.
I would definitely recommend Kiddywinks to anyone - my daughter feels safe there and is growing in confidence every day because of them.

My child really enjoys going here. I am pleased that the staff reinforce good manners and teach the children to be kind to each other. The style of care is all in together rather than classes based on age and ability, the children have structured activities but are not forced to join in.

We all know that choosing a nursery that you feel suits your child can be a difficult choice when returning to work. We were keen for our children to grow in confidence, but have the security around them to be comforted at times that we were not going to be there. We have been so pleased with Kiddywinks. We have felt a personal and warm touch from all of the staff. Our children have strong bonds with their "kiddlylinks" and often talk about them at home. Often we have needed additional hours that have been asked for a head of time and the staff have always done their upmost to accommodate this. We are very happy with our choice and would highly recommend anyone considering sending their children to pop in and have a look around.

My son attended this nursery for 3 years, he loved it. He made friends with children there, which he is still friends with now and this helped with his transition from Nursery to starting school. My daughter has attended this nursery for over a year now and has settled in well. She has lots of medical conditions, which need to be monitored closely and I believe this nursery can competently care for her here. My daughter has had lots of outings with the nursery, in the summer the staff took the children on the bus to the beach for the day. She's been to the museum in Barnstaple, the library in South Molton, which is great. The children have fresh hot meals made by an on-site chef who is fantastic, as my daughter is on a dairy free diet the chef caters for this. She has a fantastic folder which I can look at any time to see how she's doing, plus a communication book which we can write in. Also, they have great outside areas to explore. :-) we love this nursery !!!

Excellent nursery couldn't rate it any higher! My little boy is always so happy to go. They are always busy with activities, trips and constantly learning new skills from the nursery. It's set up almost like a family
home and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The outside space is amazing after the new refurbishment! There's always fresh home cooked meals and the nursery is tidy and clean at all times!

Sarah, owner at Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school responded to this review on 11 Nov 2016:

Thanks Zoe for your lovely words.

Kiddywinks is a fun, caring and loving nursery. With both my son and daughter attending every week, I could not praise the staff enough for making my children feel at home when they walk through the door. They have a lovely bond with all of the children and encourage them to be confident and help with their next step in development. I have a great relationship with the staff and look forward to having daily feedback on what my children have been doing. My daughter is not quite one and the staff have been more than happy to accommodate her needs and keep her routine at nursery as familiar as they can with her routine at home. Nothing is too much trouble. Whether it be getting messy making pictures, making sandcastles in the garden or snuggling down with a book, my children are happy to be a part of Kiddywinks nursery and enjoy every minute there.

My daughter absolutely loves her time at nursery. She is developing really well and has become so confident with the help of the team at Kiddywinks. They are a lovely team who really take care and pride in what they are doing. They keep me constantly updated with all that my daughter is doing while she is under their care and I feel sure that she is being looked after to the highest standards. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kiddywinks to anyone looking for a nursery for their child.

Kiddywinks and the staff are very well educated and they all want and make it the best for your children. I myself got on extremely well with the staff. And they were always there to listen if I or a family member had an issue with one of my children.
