Reviews

9.8 Children 1st @ Wragby Road has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.840)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Children 1st @ Wragby Road 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 36 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children 1st @ Wragby Road in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 33 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 4.84 for Children 1st @ Wragby Road is calculated as follows: ( (362 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 431 Ratings = 4.84

  • 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 33 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). 33 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.

A friendly, welcoming team who genuinely care. I feel confident to leave my son with the staff and am delighted to know his day is filled with fun and educational activities.
I instantly liked the nursery environment and facilities available to my son, an exceptional nursery with exceptional staff.
I believe Children 1st Wragby Road to be value for money but money can't buy being safe in the knowledge your child is safe and properly cared for when you have to be away from them.

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.

My son settled in very quickly and enjoys going to nursery. They have been very accommodating to our needs with drop off times and try to help if we need extra days or need to change a session.
He has improved significantly with physical abilities and talking since starting nursery.
I feel fully confident in the staff and his wellbeing whilst in their care.
I have recommended this nursery to other mums, whose children now attend.

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.

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. I can't thank the staff here enough.

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.

My daughter has been at this wonderful nursery since she was 8 months old.
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 daughter has been with Children 1st at Wragby Road for almost two years now. She has flourished in their care and I have always felt that she is in excellent hands. The team are always so pleasant and accommodating and have helped and supported us introduce life changing events (birth of a sibling) over a period of time to help my daughter adjust. I would wholeheartedly encourage everyone to consider this as a place for their children.

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 have been using Wragby Road since Jan 2013 and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The facilities that are available are brilliant, and the staff fantastic - so it's one less thing to worry about when returning to work.

We have 2 boys (2 and 4 yr old) that go to Wragby Road they have both developed and flourished during their time here in many areas.

Our boys love it here and we love the fact that we know they have the best care and opportunities available to them.

I would recommend visiting and seeing for yourself!

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.

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.
