Reviews

9.8 The Parade Day Nursery - Abington has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.827)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Parade Day Nursery - Abington 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Parade Day Nursery - Abington in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.827 for The Parade Day Nursery - Abington is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.827

  • 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 The Parade Day Nursery - Abington is based on 14 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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 attending this nursery since he was 10 months old, he is now 3 1/2. My husband and I are extremely happy with the quality of care support and education they provide. They offer a wide variety of different activities including swimming and French. I really feel they have helped to increase his confidence and social skills. The staff really are their biggest asset. They genuinely care about all the children and are always so friendly and helpful to all the parents.

My 4-year-old and 1-year-old daughters attend this preschool/nursery and both absolutely love it. The staff are brilliant and have helped our girls to thrive and grow, for which we are so grateful.

Both girls settled quickly when they started and have formed really good relationships with their key workers. The folders in which the staff keep a record of what the children do are such a great keepsake (our 4-year-old is shortly moving on to school and has recently brought hers home for us to keep).

The regular parents evenings are also a welcome way to hear about how the girls are doing. As a working parent, it is an immense relief to know your children are happy and in safe hands whilst you are at work.

I have always found the nursery to be very supportive of our individual children's needs and welfare.

The staff genuinely care, they are enthusiastic and supportive. I have found the whole team are so willing to help, even with those little but challenging things like getting to your car if you are juggling the latest hoard of crafts to come home along with a toddler and a baby.

The Parade Day Nursery are a great team all working to ensure that our children enjoy and benefit from their time there.

I genuinely can't say enough good things. I trust The Parade Day Nursery with both my children and I'd recommend them to any friend or family member.

My son has thrived at this preschool.

He loves speaking French and we have seen him grow in confidence. He speaks fondly of the staff who support him. I intend to send my younger son here too to the nursery (even though we are now living in Wellingborough) so he can benefit from this excellent childcare provision too.

The staff at The Parade Day Nursery are great. They helped with toilet training and friendship making early on and they are very supportive of our family and our faith, making adjustments to the day's activities when necessary which we are very grateful of.

They are helping with my son's transition to primary school and any concerns I have and keep me up to date with information relating to his day at the nursery.

My son has been referred to an eye specialist as he has ongoing issues with his vision and headaches and I am confident in the staff's observations of him and know they will inform me of any concerns regarding his care so we can feedback to the doctors.

Staff are very friendly and genuinely care about the children they look after. The nursery is clean and although the outside play yard is quite small, it doesn't matter as the nursery is facing a big gated park which the children can play in. The children do varied activities and we often get given handmade cards during certain times of the year, for example, Mother's Day and Father's Day. Our daughter looks forward to going to nursery and I believe this is because the staff are so great.

Our daughter has now been attending the Parade Day Nursery for almost 2 years. We are very pleased with how she has come on and would highly recommend this nursery. Our daughter has come on so much and is now a very chatty, confident and sociable little girl and a great deal of this is due to the Parade.

The nursery has a lovely feel to it and the staff are great. The children have regular trips to the park and get to go on other trips for example, to the farm park, which is an added bonus.

Our little boy will be starting in August and we are very confident that he will get on just as well at this fantastic nursery.

My child has been attending The Parade Day Nursery since he was 1. He is now 3. He thoroughly enjoys it.
The Nursery staff are caring and attentive and will work with parents to fit the needs of the child. The nursery has day trips which your child can attend if you so wish. The children go to the park and generally have fun whilst learning.
The food is great too and they received a 1 on the food standards agency listing.
I could go on about how great the nursery is, but I've only got a limited amount of words!!
Looking for a nursery for your little one can be a very daunting experience, but I absolutely recommend The Parade Day Nursery to anyone seeking childcare.

We have been overwhelmed at the level of care, support and education that our little boy has received at the Parade. The current Manager does an outstanding job.
The manager and staff clearly love what they do and it reflects in the development in my little boy. I can't praise The Parade enough.
They go over and beyond their duties. Thank you for everything. I would recommend this nursery to any parents.
