Reviews

7.8 Poppins Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.814)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Poppins 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppins Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.689 for Poppins Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.689

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppins Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

Poppins is a fantastic nursery! My little boy has been here since he was 7months old and at nearly 2 1/2, he is still continuing to thrive. The friendly and supportive staff always offer a very welcoming environment and I am happy to leave my son in their care because I know they will provide him with the same care and attention that I provide. Feedback at the end of the day is always informative and staff are always ready to answer any questions. I really like the range of activities on offer as they always build on the interests of the children and show that staff genuinely take on board the views of the children in their care. I am thrilled with the care my son receives and couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather send him! He loves all of the staff at nursery and often talks about them at home. This close relationship means that he is very happy to go to nursery and truly benefits from all of the activities and experiences on offer. Highly recommend!

Both my daughters have attended Poppins Day Nursery and they have both thrived as a result. My eldest is now at school but talks fondly of her time there and my other daughter is still there and having a ball. The staff are friendly and genuinely care about the children they are looking after. At the moment the Nursery is definitely the best it has ever been, everyone working there is continually thinking of ways to extend the learning of the children in a multitude of fun ways. The outdoor space though not extensive is being redeveloped to provide even more activities. The children are already growing their own food and are about the embark upon Forest school at a local primary school. Every child is seen as an individual and their contributions to their own learning valued. It is a Nursery with a family atmosphere and yet the standards of a high quality childcare provider. Providing home-cooked food and a range of off site trips it is definitely worth a visit.

Very happy with the standard of care. My son is always very excited to tell me what he has been doing. Whilst the outdoor space could be better I know the team are doing all they can to make improvements and certainly make the most of the available space.

All three off children have spent their early years here and have all made brilliant progress and thoroughly enjoyed going, making some lovely friendships along the way! I have never been concerned about leaving any of them, and know that they are happy and safe when I do, which is added peace of mind.

Poppins Day nursery and it committed and friendly staff have played such an important part in our family, handing over your child to someone else is always hard so knowing I could rely on their care made this so much easier. Both my children have needed extra support, my eldest is highly sensitive and the staff were very supportive, understanding and proactive in helping her to manage this. My youngest has a Cows Milk Protein Allergy and the staff have worked very closely with me to ensure she has maintained a healthy diet whilst not being exposed to anything that would trigger her allergy. As a family we have been thrilled with the care our children have received and both of them are very close with their key workers whilst enjoying the company of all the staff. The nursery have always provided them with great and meaningful activities and we have love all the time and effort gone in to the little details of their time there.

Poppins is a great nursery. Staff are lovely and always approachable, professional and supportive. My children at happy there and their development has been brilliant since attending which must be partly due to Poppins' positive influence. Staff show a good level of of understanding of personal needs of individual children and are very caring in their approach.

Poppins Day Nursery is small but lovely and caring nursery with great staff. With a designated key work, our little boy has come on so much since starting nursery 6 months ago. The nursery provides a great range of activities and parents are kept well informed as to what their child(ren) have been doing through their daily record and through their online Tapestry journal. The nursery are happy to follow your child's routine and have a great relationship with parents. We are really happy with the service being provided and, more importantly, our little boy is incredibly happy there.

Ellie, Manager at Poppins Day Nursery responded to this review on 06 Apr 2016:

Thank you so much Alex, we are glad your little boy is so happy at Poppins :)

Poppins is a loving and caring environment, they have provided such consistency with this while my children have been in their care. One moment that I will never forget and will be forever grateful for, was the care they gave to my little girl who had her first fit. Without getting out any information on her they were able to tell the paramedics everything there was to tell about my little girl. So professional - organised and efficient - I could't ask for anywhere better for my children.
