Reviews

9.7 Child 1st (Bakewell) has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.664)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Child 1st (Bakewell) 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Child 1st (Bakewell) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 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 4.761 for Child 1st (Bakewell) is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.761

  • 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 4.903 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Child 1st (Bakewell) is based on 13 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.903

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

We are very pleased with the nursery and the staff are very friendly and caring. My son is learning lots of new things and is developing in all areas. The facilities are good, it would be nicer to have a larger outdoor area but that can't be helped. The staff will work with you through the various stages of your child's life and try and cater for any needs or requirements you have. I feel the closure of nursery for the Christmas period should result in a reduction in fees because if it was open your child would be there, it isn't our choice. Very happy overall and do recommend it to anyone that asks me.

I am very happy with the nursery overall. My little girl loves her one day a week and seems to like the meals. I think it is brilliant that they receive all meals plus snacks and nappies and wipes in with the price. Overall the staff are all lovely and helpful and I would recommend to other people.

This Nursery has done nothing but support both my children who currently attend. I have seen a big difference in their social skills and communication skills and confidence. It was a shock to their system when they first started as they’d never been left with anyone other than grandparents. The Nursery helped them settle in and now they love going. Nothing but praise!

My son is always so excited about going to nursery, he's so happy when I drop him off, giving every staff member big smiles, and is always enjoying himself and happy when I pick him up.

He's been like that since he started at nine months old and you can't fake those reactions at that age!

I love everything about nursery from the friendly and supportive staff members, great food, cleanliness and activities. And I feel that my son clearly being so happy is a testimony to how great it is.

My daughter absolutely loves her nursery, if she could go every day she would!
All of the staff are fantastic, so friendly and great at their jobs. My daughter talks about them all the time and says how much she likes her "teachers".

I would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents.

Both of my children have enjoyed their time at child 1st Bakewell nursery; from 9 months. The staff are professional, friendly and enthusiastic. The building is so bright and colourful inside with lovely displays.

They have made some exciting changes recently that includes more outdoor messy play - my son will love it.

The value for money is difficult to comment on as we don't have a lot of competition in the area.

Since my daughter has been attending Child 1st Nursery, her speech has really come on. The girls are lovely and my daughter seems to really like them all. They are so lovely and all questions are answered. She currently only goes one morning a week but due to her progress, I am looking into uping her hours as she really does enjoy playing and learning there.

Fantastic staff all really lovely to get on with. The nursery is lovely and all very organized. My little boy is learning new things each week and always has a good day.
I find it very helpful they always present an end of day report of what they have eaten, what sleep and nappy changes. The staff always have a catch up with you on how your child is doing and my son is getting to know the girls and they all get to know each child.
Wouldn't send him anywhere else!

My daughter has attended nursery since March 2016, and she really enjoys it.
Both myself and my partner are very pleased with the care and education that our daughter and we receive from the nursery. We feel that it has definitely brought on our daughters confidence and social skills. All the staff are friendly and helpful and always make you feel relaxed. I struggled at first to leave my daughter as she's my first child, but all the staff were so reassuring and supportive, this made me feel a lot better and comfortable to ask any questions. It's a very professional, educational, yet fun and caring nursery.

My baby started here at 9 months old and settled in immediately. The staff are friendly and caring and my baby seems to always enjoy herself! As a first time mummy, I was worried about leaving my baby with people she didn't know but I needn't have, as they take great care of her! Lovely happy place!
