Reviews

9.5 Rushden Kids Club Ltd has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.482)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Rushden Kids Club Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rushden Kids Club Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.482 for Rushden Kids Club Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (179 Excellents x 5) + (98 Goods x 4) + (24 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 305 Ratings = 4.482

  • 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 Rushden Kids Club Ltd is based on 23 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 14.6 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's key person keeps me well informed of his progress. I would like newsletters at the beginning of each term so we are aware of what's happening.

Use of text messages would be helpful to remind parents eg parents' consultations.

Overall I am happy with the nursery.

Rushden Kids Club provides a loving and caring environment for my son. He loves attending the nursery. The children have lots of opportunities for messy play, imaginative games and use of a fantastic garden space. I'm really pleased I chose this nursery for my son and can't praise the staff enough for all the time and energy they put into caring for the children.

Kids Club have been one of the most important teams of people involved in improving my little girl's confidence and learning for nearly a year now.

My other daughter has been with Kids Club since the age of 9 months until she left to go to school, with only a short time out after having my youngest daughter, she loves going to breakfast club and being taken to school in the morning. They are an amazing team.

My son has been at Rushden Kids Club Ltd since he was 9 months old and has not once complained about being bored or mistreated, he is well looked after and has made a lot of friends. He has been supported through all of his stages of potty training, aggression, understanding of right and wrong and that's all I can ask for. Very happy.

We are so happy we found the best nursery school for our daughter, she loves coming to school every day. She plays better with other children and is learning new words and she can write her own name.
We are so happy for her to be at this school.
I would like to thank every single one of the teachers who have taught her and taken care of her. Thank you all so much.

I have found my two grandchildren very happy and settled on collection. They have had a fun time at Kids Club and the staff are accommodating. My only concern is three-year-olds are put in the under twos room (educational needs not being met).

Natasha Wain, Manager at Rushden Kids Club Ltd responded to this review on 25 Jul 2017:

At no point are three years olds put into the under twos room. Children under two occupy the upstairs baby room and will come down at the end of the day ready for collection at 6 pm. All children are planned for on an individual basis according to their needs, stage of development and interests.

My children thoroughly enjoy coming to Kids Club and are really excited in the morning before coming here. The staff are fantastic with the children, very approachable and easy to talk to and always listen to parents needs. I would recommend this nursery to others.

My daughter has had a fantastic first year at Kids Club Ltd. She has enjoyed going since day one and due to the fun, friendly environment loves attending every day. The staff are fantastic, I know there have been some big changes at the nursery this year. But they have always put the children first and make sure each day is as fun filled as the last. My daughter has learnt a lot through play here and is looking forward to returning in September for her last year before starting school.

Since my son has been at this nursery he has had 4 key workers, as he has delayed speech -
this really didn't help him having to get to know new staff. I understand that sometimes the turn around of staff is high but surely this is not great for some children that need extra help. Other than this, I am really happy with everything.

Natasha Wain, Manager at Rushden Kids Club Ltd responded to this review on 25 Jul 2017:

The change in key people is not a practice that we advocate but during the development of the staff team, it has been unavoidable.
The nursery has the luxury of an inclusion officer who works with children with additional needs who plans and supports the children and families in our care.

My child has attended Kids Club from 6 months of age. I was recommended by several parents. I always felt listened to and happy with the service and cost.

Recently, however, there was a lack of communication and warning of price increases due to the Ofsted inspection of inadequate. However, as a result, parents suffered and this has caused a lot of unnecessary anxiety which has unfortunately impacted on the children - which is not what Ofsted set out to do.

Natasha Wain, Manager at Rushden Kids Club Ltd responded to this review on 25 Jul 2017:

As with all nurseries, fees are reviewed annually and this was communicated with parents via letter giving one months notice. Parental feedback was considered and as a good will gesture for existing parents the current fee for pre school children attending holiday club was held at the current rate.

My daughter has attended Kids Club since she was 2, she is now leaving to start school. My daughter loved being in the 2's room and settled quickly. The staff were attentive and engaging. She struggled when starting preschool though and did not want to go.

Most of the staff are helpful and caring. However, communication has been bad, my daughter's key worker has changed twice, and both times I was not told. The preschool is big and for a shy child, I feel this has been a bit overwhelming for my daughter, but that is personal preference.
There has been a lot of staff leaving/shuffling and I feel they need to all get on the same page to have stability for the children.

Natasha Wain, Manager at Rushden Kids Club Ltd responded to this review on 25 Jul 2017:

Under new management, the team have been working extremely hard on improving transitions for children. The new procedure involves children moving through to their new room on visits with their key person and buddies. They will have a number of visits until they feel safe, secure and confident about moving through. This is also discussed with parents and the new key person is introduced to the parent.
To ensure that children's needs are being met and that staff are deployed correctly there have been necessary changes to accommodate statutory requirements and to enable children to reach their full potential.
