Reviews

9.9 North Somercotes Playgroup has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.916)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for North Somercotes Playgroup 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for North Somercotes Playgroup in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.916 for North Somercotes Playgroup is calculated as follows: ( (76 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for North Somercotes Playgroup is based on 7 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target Reached = 1

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

Amazing nursery, the staff really take an interest in the child to bring out their full potential and go above and beyond to help parents and their children. The meals are amazing and varied covering all dietary needs. The prices hourly are at a very cheap rate for such a well run nursery I was lucky to find it. They leave you at ease as never easy to trust a stranger with your child, as such a nurturing friendly environment.

The activities are great and imaginative. My daughter brought home amazing paintings where her foot or hands were animals, the play-doh freshly made, can't praise this nursery enough.

My son currently goes to this nursery and my daughter used to but she has now moved on to school. They both very much love the place and the staff. My daughter wishes she could go back to "little school" as we call it cause she loved it and misses it. My son really loves it and is a "character" according to the staff. He loves going and I know he's safe and well looked after there.

My daughter is small, feisty yet fearful of rough play; I value kindness, sharing, respecting other people's values and teach 'gentle hands' so the last thing I want to hear is that my kid was hurt or hit or ignored. (I've heard from parents at other nurseries about kids biting their child or taking toys away etc) and I was genuinely fearful 'would these adults care, nurture and expand the values I want for my daughter' in their setting? Yes, they do! for me, it's important to feel safe. In induction they said 'we promote strong friendly girls who are confident' they also offered a buddy systems to encourage friendship building skills. They have a lovely mixed team of male and females so there is no fear of men. They take on and shape the space to meet the kid's needs be this creating dynamic ways to learn letters from drawing on the pavement or in sand or even bringing back the home corner because the kids missed it (was supposed to evolve) which I think is awesome and child centred.

Both my children have been to this playgroup and my youngest daughter will be coming here when she is 2.
I like how the staff keep the parents involved in what the kids are doing day to day. I don't get to pick my children up much from playgroup due to working away in the week, but I don't feel like I'm missing out on what my kids are up to as the staff share lots of photos and keep us informed and involved in all activities and events.
Would recommend.

My son absolutely loves going to nursery, it has helped him come out of his shell and is very well behaved whilst at nursery. All members of staff are lovely and are great with all of his allergies. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

I currently have 2 children in this nursery, both started when they turned 2 years old. One of which will be progressing into the primary school this September. The staff are brilliant with the kids and go beyond their duty to help when needed. My younger child only started here in September 2016 and already she has grown in confidence, her speech has improved massively and she has been learning to write her name! The staff also work with you as parents when you have concerns with your children, whether that's behaviour, eating, sleeping issues or just general advice, they are amazing!!
I love this setting aswell because it's based in the primary school building so the children get to see the younger primary school kids over the fence and when it's time to move to the other side of the fence it's not a massive deal for them as they are still in the same building.

Fantastic. My daughter came from a school where she would scream before we got to the door so had to take her out. Now she's at this nursery she asks to go everyday. Staff are fantastic. Would recommend this nursery to anybody, fantastic.
