Reviews

9.9 Children 1st @ Main Street has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.916)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Children 1st @ Main Street 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 29 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children 1st @ Main Street in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 Children 1st @ Main Street is calculated as follows: ( (318 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 345 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 Children 1st @ Main Street is based on 22 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). 22 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.

They are caring and show affection to my daughter. Every day she does a different activity to aid her development. The manager and team are outstanding, sometimes at the end of the day, they are a little understaffed. Good communication - I'm happy!

I couldn't have picked a better nursery. Main Street really does live up to its outstanding title with the Ofsted group. The staff are so friendly, helpful and organised. Any concerns or issues are dealt with efficiently.
The cleanliness of the nursery is amazing. Would 100% recommend others to join, in fact, I already have.

I am really happy with my nursery. Both of my sons have been there (youngest son still goes there). Environment and staff are excellent. Staff are very professional and friendly. I can see good progress in my children's development. The nursery is always clean and tidy and they provide healthy meals and snacks.

Nursery keeps parents informed and we have good communication between nursery and home. I can recommend to all my friends.

Both my children have attended Children 1st, my son is still with them and my daughter is now at school.
I have always been happy with their care and development. I have recently put my sister-in-law in contact to enrol my niece.
Staff are always attentive and helpful and both my children are always content on drop off and collection.

From the moment my daughter and I went to visit the nursery we knew it was the one that we would be happy for her to go too. The nursery is clean, bright and a happy environment. The manager is very passionate about her nursery and that shows throughout. Her and the staff are very professional but also very friendly and welcoming. My daughter LOVES going to nursery. Her talking and singing have come on a lot in such a short space of time. I shall definitely be sending my other 2 children there as I know they are safe, happy and looked after.
Thank you all :)

I am very happy with the level of care my son receives at Children 1st @ Main Street. He has been attending since he was 8 1/2 months old and I believe the passionate and dedicated staff team that have worked closely with my son, have helped him to become the clever, kind and happy little boy he is. Thank you to all the team!

As a primary school teacher myself, working in the early year’s sector, I was very impressed with the resources and layout of the nursery. It is bright, colourful and welcoming. The staff appear to know all the children’s names even though they may not work in their rooms. We love the EY log app on our phones which allows us to see observations and photos of our daughter in real time as they are uploaded. We can also add our own observations from home.

We are greeted at the end and start of each session and are given a personal account of what are daughter has done that day. Time is made available to talk to the staff and ask questions which we appreciate. The home nursery diary is always kept up to date to provide us with further information as to what our daughter has eaten, drank etc.

We have never had any issues with the nursery and our daughter loves to attend!

Never have had the pleasure of leaving a child with such wonderful people. You can't help but feel like your part of the family at Main Street. It's so personal as you feel like the staff know your child so well and as it shows, no matter how individual they are or what requirement's they have. All the rooms are clean, organised and well presented. I like to say a personal thank you for being so great with my daughter and really supporting with her eating. You're all amazing.

Having looked at several different nurseries for our little girl, we both immediately felt that Main Street was the one for us. The managers and team are fantastic and my little girl loves going to nursery so much. I have never once been worried to leave her even when she's not feeling 100% as I know she will be well looked after. She has made some great friends and looks forward to going. I recommend Main Street to everyone I know who is looking for a local nursery!

I feel that my daughter is very well looked after and know she has gained so much confidence since attending.
The staff are all fantastic, very approachable and all make my daughter smile and feel safe!

Thank you Main Street. You're all wonderful.

I can't rate this nursery highly enough. I feel totally at ease leaving my daughter in their care. My daughter is now 3 and has been attending Main Street since she was around 10 months old. She has come on leaps and bounds since being at nursery and I feel this is down to the care and attention she receives whilst there. She always comes homes saying she has had a really good day and is always talking about her key workers. The nursery setting is modern, clean and welcoming and the staff are all really friendly. The food is great too - my daughter only seems to eat well when she's at nursery!

Children 1st @ Main Street is a fabulous well-rounded nursery. My daughter has been attending for almost two years and has moved through each of the rooms (baby, toddler and now preschool). Every single member of staff and the trainees have been welcoming, friendly and supportive of her and us as parents. The manager is accommodating and supportive at all times. The environment is bright and varied. My daughter eats all of her food and the outdoor area is large but safely enclosed. I fully recommend this nursery to anyone who asks.

Both our boys have attended this nursery and have really loved going. Being there for 2 days a week has really brought both of them on in terms of confidence, speech and various other things. The staff are professional and friendly and always go the extra mile. We don't have a bad word to say and feel our children have really benefited from being brought up in this excellent learning environment.

After being reluctant to send my child to a nursery in the first place, I now believe sending her to Children 1st is the best decision we've made as parents so far. The staff are friendly, kind and genuinely pleased to see my daughter when she comes through their doors. They aid her development at every turn and she loves every moment she spends there. I cannot speak highly enough of the nursery and the staff.

My daughter who is now 12 went to a different branch of the children's 1st Nursery and she received outstanding care from all staff and excellent educational support which has benefited her enormously. So when I found out I was having another baby and that I would need child care for when I returned to work I did not think twice about contacting the nursery. I was so happy to see staff that had looked after my daughter still working for them as this shows they good to work for as they retain staff.

I also like that they are a training facility and all the staff are trained or working towards qualifications, showing they invest in staff. My 3-month-old son has been looked after by the nursery for 4 weeks now and he is so happy, they care for him as I would giving lots of cuddles, he is stimulated and is reaching milestones early. Because it is such a good facility I have not been too distressed in returning to work and leaving him.

We have two children at the setting and have experienced every room from the Baby Room right through to Early Years. They have all been excellent! The staff are clearly a close-knit team who put the care of the children first. They are always friendly, approachable and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that the children (and parents!) are happy. My oldest daughter loves the wow activities - she has been involved in creating a papier mache plane to Rio to celebrate the Olympics and a milk bottle iglo (which had to be seen to be believed!) for Winter! The food is excellent; they even persuade my picky eater to eat her vegetables - apparently they taste different at nursery! As parents we love the 'EY Log' which is a private and secure online account where the staff can share photos and videos of what your child is doing at nursery - it brightens up our day when we get a little green elephant notification ping up and we can see what they have been up to! Highly recommended!

We loved this nursery and knew it was 'the one' after visiting five others in the area, instantly. The Manager was so informative and put us at ease straight away. The atmosphere of the nursery is so unique. It is a home from home, friendly, yet professional place where I feel my child is 100% safe. The Manager runs a tight ship and is amazing at her job and it shows throughout the happy staff. I couldn't have asked for a better keyworker for our son. She is so talented with the children and has such an amazing relationship with him. He has developed far beyond my expectations because of her, with the help of the other staff. I cant express the positive impact this nursery has had on our son's life and development enough. It is the best money I have ever spent. Eternally thankful.

My little girl loves coming to nursery, all staff are very friendly and welcoming, I receive daily feedback about her day and the feedback they give me shows they spend quality time with her. My little girl always talks about the staff and what she has been doing. Myself and my partner love the eylog and we are able to see what our daughter is up to whilst we are at work.

Description:

Hello my name is Annemarie Alvey and I am the Manager of Children 1st @ Main Street.

I have been employed by Children 1st since April 2009. I started at Children 1st @ Toton and completed my CACHE level 3 qualification in childcare and education.

Beginning as nursery nurse, I have since undertaken extensive training and developed myself to become a room leader, a senior nursery nurse and then deputy manager. This year I completed my level 3 in management and was promoted to become manager here at Main Street.

I have a great passion in working with and caring for children and their families as well as supporting the staff that I work with. I am a bubbly, outgoing and affectionate person. I take these characteristics into my job and really enjoy putting the knowledge and experience I have gained to good use in caring for children.

I fully believe in the ethos of the Children 1st Day Nurseries and I am fully committed to our mission statement of Children 1st "Leading the way, Shaping the future" and providing high quality day care and education to all children. I feel immense pride in our nursery, what we achieve, our staff team and all of the children who pass through and their amazing achievements every single day. So if you like what you've seen so far, come and meet me and my fantastic team to view our amazing facilities for you and your child.
