Reviews

9.4 Kiddiwinks Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.432)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Kiddiwinks Day Nursery 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kiddiwinks Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 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 4.759 for Kiddiwinks Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.759

  • 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 4.673 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddiwinks Day Nursery is based on 7 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). 7 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.673

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

Kiddiwinks has an excellent nursery team which includes some qualified teachers, plus a good number of qualified staff with paediatric first aid training, this helped the nursery secure an excellent rating in the latest Ofsted inspection report. My son used to go to Kiddiwinks when he was very young. Since then my husband and I are fond of their activities. Due to their excellent service, we decided to put our second child at Kiddiwinks despite the fact that we had relocated to Sale. I would like to highly recommend this nursery for your children.

Many thanks for your lovely comments

Kiddiwinks is a caring and friendly environment that, most importantly, my child is happy in. I feel like the staff know my child well and have developed a good relationship with her. This is a great foundation for her learning and she is always coming home full of ideas and enthusiasm for learning. Communication is much improved of late too with a weekly newsletter.

When we moved to Manchester from overseas, we were uncertain about the nursery system in the UK. I am glad that we found Kiddiwinks for our 2-year-old. Starting from the enrolment, nursery staff were extremely helpful and understanding. Our son settled down and started enjoying the nursery pretty quickly. Thanks to the staff in developing all round activities, we have observed our son doing very well in learning. The environment is quiet and safe. We are well informed of our son's daily activities. Overall, I would certainly recommend this nursery to others.
