  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 17 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 4.816 for The Co-operative Childcare Manchester (Wythenshawe) Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (195 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.816

  • 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 4.85 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Manchester (Wythenshawe) Nursery is based on 17 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.850

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I have 2 children at The Co-operative Childcare Manchester (Wythenshawe) Nursery and all the staff are so enthusiastic and positive with both of them. They are always bringing home pictures and paintings they have done or biscuits and cakes they have made. They love the food and the outside area is great! My eldest son does a dance class on a Monday and he loves it!

My daughter loved the butterfly room. All staff were always pleasant and friendly and was always so helpful. The staff always did fantastic activities with the children, giving them great opportunity to learn. Since going into the butterly room I noticed how much it helped my daughter to develop and boost her confidence.

Throughout each stage in the nursery, I cannot fault anything and the staff who have cared for my child is just fantastic. My child has made a very close bond with her key person and buddy. They really enjoy their job and it shows, so credit to them.

My experience with my son coming to Forum nursery is very good. He loves coming the three mornings a week. He learns so much. He comes home and tells me what he has been doing, which could be nursery songs, numbers, words. He has made lots of friends. All the staff are very good. All the children very happy. Overall I am very pleased with everything. A great nursery.

My daughter has been going to this nursery for 18 months and absolutely loves it. Every morning all the staff she walks past greet her using her name and she always runs into the arms of her favourite staff members.
The nursery has been very accommodating and understanding with my request for no sweet food for the first year.
They always have activities set out that encourage specific skills, and their records of her progress are very thorough and observant.
I could not recommend this nursery enough. I trust them to truly care for my daughter while I have to work.

My son started when he was around 13 months old. We had some personal issues at home which seemed to affect him at the nursery. (My mum his Nannie had cancer). He was biting and pushing and generally acting out. I was completely out of my depth and didn't know what to do. The support myself and my son got from the staff and management was extremely overwhelming. He came out of that stage as quick as he went into it. I couldn't ask for better people to be looking after my son. I don't worry while he's in their care.

There was a constant discrepancy between the fees we were quoted by the nursery and the invoices from head office, which resulted in a massive bill for us. Due to inconsistent support with resolving the matter, our child had to be taken out. The Nursery Nurses were fabulous and we really were saddened by the management issues.

My eldest son attended the nursery for several months before leaving to attend school and my youngest son still attends the nursery.
The staff are all very welcoming and go above and beyond for the children in their care, they have a very good key person approach across all of the rooms and have a high standard of care throughout the nursery. My eldest son blossomed during his time at nursery. He struggled with his communication skills but he soon began to thrive with the help of preschool staff and has now developed the ability to hold a full conversation. My youngest son adores his key person and is happy and confident when attending nursery. I have always been treated fairly and feel that the staff have always been supportive and understanding with myself and my children. I would 100% recommend the Co-operative Childcare for any other parent the setting is lovely with a huge garden and lots of activities to cater to each child's needs.
