  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.849 for Children 1st @ Wragby Road is calculated as follows: ( (559 Excellents x 5) + (95 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 656 Ratings = 4.849

  • 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 Children 1st @ Wragby Road is based on 28 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 11.2 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.

My son has been in this nursery since he was 4 months old and we are absolutely delighted with the staff and the nursery itself. The people working there make a difference; they are sweet, caring and they pay attention to every detail from the manager to the cleaner; everyone is really professional. I would say this nursery is like a big family and the environment they create is wonderful. My boy is now 2 and he is happy to go every day. I couldn't have chosen a better nursery for my boy!

We have been using the Wragby Road nursery for the last 5 years (with both of our boys). The staff are always welcoming, friendly and helpful. The facilities are great, and both boys love/d attending. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

I would highly recommend children first at Wragby Road. Both of my children have attended the nursery my son started when he was 2 years old and my daughter was 7 months old back in 2015. My daughter still currently attends and has a great relationship with all of the staff in the peter rabbits room.

The ladies in the puddleducks room have been brilliant in transitioning my child into nursery as first time parents we were apprehensive about our child starting nursery. They made every opportunity to reassure us that our son was doing well knowing it would put us at ease. Since joining the nursery our son has come on leaps and bounds with his speech, motor skills and general confindance. The food in which he receives is of a great variety and he always eats it all, which speaks for itself. The nursery is brilliant at working along side us at home so that we are on the same page for his development. We also like the use of the eylog facilities which allows us to see pictures and updates on how he is and what he has been learning and doing at nursery; likewise we can add our own blogs of what he is doing at home allowing the practioners to see and further develop at nursery. As well as a key worker our son seems to have a great relationship with each of the practioners.

I couldn't recommend this nursery enough. From the day starting, they have done everything they can with helping starting to making us feel welcome each day when arriving, helping my son with extra attention to his speach and having all the care with helping my youngest son settle in, due to his first nursery and first few weeks of fears of a new place, but both sons love coming learning ,playing with friends and I couldn't wish for nicer staff to take over my role when I have to work. It helps to know I'll go back to pick up two happy little children.

My children started at this nursery after it was recommended to us and we are delighted. Both our children have fun filled days at nursery which is led by lovely caring staff and management. The facilities are wonderful and the variety of nutritious food served to the children is superb. They come home from nursery very happy and content (if a little tired). I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for childcare.

My son joined after spending 2 years at a different nursery. The staff were so accommodating with him settling in and making sure he felt secure within the new setting. All the staff are friendly and will help with any questions/concerns that I raised.
My son comes home with stories of what he has been doing and looks forward to returning the next day.
The app they use is a great way of interacting with my son's learning journey. It’s great that I can add skills he’s learning at home to give an all-round picture of his development.
I would definitely recommend this nursery.

I am extremely happy with the service provided. The staff are friendly and my son speaks fondly of his days there. I am kept up to date with his progress and activities and he often brings pictures home which is lovely. I feel this nursery is exceptional, I have looked at others in Lincoln and none live up to the standard of Children 1st @ Wragby Road.

Both of my daughters attend Children 1st @ Wragby Road. They both absolutely love their days in nursery. When I leave them with the staff there, I feel like I am leaving them with family. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful, they will always make time to discuss any problems/concerns that I have and equally, to support in developmental steps. My girls know all of the staff in their rooms and feel totally comfortable with them. The management team is amazing, they are always on the ball and always been able to accommodate any last minute requirements for extra childcare. We have been attending nursery for 2.5 years now and just can't recommend it enough.

This is a phenomenal nursery. My husband and I were very nervous about taking our daughter to nursery when I went back to work, but they have made it so easy for us. She felt so at ease that she's stuck to her usual routines and she's learning many new skills, which is wonderful to see. The nursery's use of a daily diary and their eyLog website means that we're kept up to date with all the fun things she gets up to in the day. The ladies who look after her are all fabulous and it makes me very happy that my daughter wants to go to them when I drop her off in the morning. She always leaves with a smile on her face and that's invaluable to us.

He has improved significantly with physical abilities and talking since starting nursery.

Our son has been at nursery for the last 8 months. In this period, we have seen a lot of change in him and his milestones have come on in quick time. A lot of credit for this would have to go to the nursery and the staff who have been amazing. We would have to say that every single member of staff has been so very supportive and sweet.

My daughter has come on leaps and bounds at the nursery. She knows she is safe and cared for therefore settles well, eats well and sleeps well (for her). There are lots of engaging activities for her to enjoy throughout the day and I feel confident and safe in the knowledge that she is there whilst I'm at work.

Children 1st @ Wragby Road has been more than helpful as a family- with our situation financially changing over the past year they have always been fully supportive and never moaned about any changes.

My son has been in this nursery for just over a year and I can't believe how far he has come. Staff are brilliant, professional, caring and always with a smile on their faces. They have been very supportive of my son especially when he was potty training. He has become a very confident boy who knows his numbers, loves reading and singing.

All three of my children have attended or are currently attending this nursery and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff there. They all work extremely hard to provide an excellent level of care and education, focused on the needs and interests of my children. Feedback is always thorough and the online learning portal is great for seeing what my children have been up to and it is updated regularly. The managers are friendly and are always very accommodating with requests for additional hours/changes in our circumstances, etc. Since Children 1st took over the nursery, the facilities have improved significantly, making the most of the indoor and outdoor space available. All in all, it is an excellent nursery where my children have been and are really happy. I would recommend it to others without reservation.

Her progression over the last 7 months has been amazing and her interaction with the staff and other children has been crucial to her development.

The staff are incredibly professional yet approachable and friendly in demeanour and nothing is too much for them. The nursery is flexible with timings and very accommodating to our requirements.

My daughter has become a very happy and expressive girl and loves going to nursery. She was allocated a key worker when she started and she is fantastic however all of the staff take an active interest in her social and general life and make us all feel very welcome.

I have already recommended a friend to join the nursery and will continue to do so. We will be very sad when our daughter has to leave for school!

Our son has settled in so well at Children 1st. He loves his days there. He's too young to tell us what he's been doing, so it's great to read about his day in his journal as well as see pictures and updates on the eyLog app. The staff have been very welcoming and friendly and also very accommodating to our needs: swapping and adding days where we have needed extra help. We couldn't be happier with the standard.

All the staff are welcoming to all the kids whether they work in my child's room or not. They are thoughtful when doing crafts at Fathers day, they check what we would like our son to write on cards etc for his stepdad. My son's key worker has an amazing bond with him and genuinely cares about him and his progress. Communication is brilliant at Wragby Road with management talking about dates and fees as well as handing over my child's information. We moved out of the area and is now a 30-minute drive away but I wouldn't move my child nursery for the world.

My son has settled in superbly well
The nursery nurses have looked after him with excellent standards
His diary is filled in each day.

I particularly like the choice of fresh meals he is given on a daily basis.

My daughter and I have been very pleased with this nursery and I would recommend it to anyone. My daughter loves coming here and has a great time whilst she's here. The staff are very nice and friendly, warm and welcoming. The security is excellent and I feel very assured that my daughter is safe whilst she's here. My child has come on leaps and bounds in her independence and confidence whilst being here. Thank you to everyone we will both be sad when my daughter leaves in April.

A lovely nursery! Staff are brilliant, my child has learnt so much and has lovely relationships with all the staff. Everyone is so friendly and all the staff know all the children even when they are in different rooms. This gives it a nice friendly welcoming feeling.

I have recommended this nursery to all of my friends and anyone who asks me which nursery my daughter goes to. I know 3 have placed their children there after my recommendation. The staff are always helpful, the manager is very welcoming and friendly always happy to help. I've never had a problem with the care my daughter gets and she is very happy to be there :)

I have sent both of my little girls to this nursery over the previous few years and they've been amazing with both of them. Both very happy and contented in their environment. The care and development from baby room to preschool is great and my eldest was well prepared for when she started at school.

We chose this nursery because of the homely feel and the friendly staff, both of which have been maintained throughout the changes and improvements to the nursery over the last few years. Since the change of ownership to Children's 1st, the facilities at the nursery have been improved dramatically, making it an even better place to learn, develop and grow.

Both of our boys have had great fun and made good friends in their time at the nursery, the eldest will shortly be moving on to school, though little brother has a couple more years of enjoying his time at nursery.

The manager and all the staff create a very welcoming and caring environment, with a good healthy food provided throughout the week.

We were quite anxious about our 11 month old starting nursery as she hasn't had much time away from me (just a couple of hours here and there) and because I still nurse her to sleep for all of her naps. However the manager and all her staff have been so supportive and caring, making this transition so much easier on our little girl. They do everything they can (including holding her for all of her naps) to ensure she is happy and gets the attention she needs. I get regular updates and I am encouraged to ring up as many times as I like while she is there. We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice of nursery.

Louisa Parish

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2004

Description:

Hello my name is Louisa Parish and I am the Nursery Manager at Children 1st @ Wragby Road and Children 1st @ The Marina.

I have worked in childcare since 2004 when I qualified with a CACHE Level 3 qualification in Childcare and Education. In 2011 I undertook further study with The Open University to gain a Level 4.

During my career I have had the opportunity to take on varied roles and increasing responsibility which I have relished. From working with our youngest babies, to becoming Senior Nursery Nurse and Deputy Nursery Manager, I have been given the opportunity to develop my professional skills across the nursery environment.

I have experienced all roles in the nursery, something which has been invaluable to me as Nursery Manager.

I cherish my role as Nursery Manager, a position I have held since 2012. I thoroughly enjoy my role and the nursery I work in, supporting the staff, caring for the children, greeting the parents and also meeting new parents.

The role enables me to share my knowledge and experience with other members of staff. Just as I have benefitted from my training opportunities, I am keen to ensure that all staff have access to professional development opportunities, something which I know is at the heart of the Children 1st ethos. I am so lucky to have a friendly and enthusiastic team who I can confidently say will always go the extra mile for each individual parent and their child.
