Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 Playtime Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.638 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Playtime Nursery is based on 6 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 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.638

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

9.5 Playtime Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.471)

Playtime is an excellent nursery with a great team of staff who are dedicated to providing the best childcare. My child has thoroughly enjoyed going to nursery and gets on very well with staff and other children in a friendly and caring environment.
There are lots of activities to keep children engaged and help learning. My child has certainly benefited from attending such a great local nursery.

My daughter (under one) has been attending Playtime Nursery for the past few months and has really enjoyed her time at nursery so far.
The baby room staff are excellent and give lots of care and attention to every baby/toddler. They have varied daily activities and lots of sensory toys, books and play equipment.
Playtime is a safe nursery to help nurture babies, toddlers and children and my little one has loved making friends at Playtime.

We have been so happy with this nursery throughout our sons time here. The staff are fantastic. They are always friendly and approachable and they always give lots of feedback about our child's progression.
The nursery is always well presented and clean and there are lots of resources for the children to use.
Our little one can sometimes find it hard to be left but the staff are always so welcoming to him and he really enjoys his time there. He has made lots of friends and his time in preschool is really helping to prepare him for starting school in September.

My son has attended the nursery for over 3 years and has moved through every room in the nursery. I have been impressed with Playtime at every stage of his transition. The staff are warm and friendly as well as professional. They are passionate and caring and my son has absolutely enjoyed his time there and as a working mum, it is a huge relief to know he is in such a supportive and caring environment.

The nursery itself is well presented, clean and tidy. The outdoor space is good.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery.

My son has been attending Playtime Nursery for the last 18 months and has come such a long way in that time. He has become much more confident and has learnt so much. He has also made some lovely friends.

The staff are all lovely and easy to talk to and ask questions.

The nursery is always kept extremely clean and tidy and there are lots of lovely resources.
There is a large outdoor area which perfect for my son as he loves to run around.
