The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Paintpots Manchester Day Nursery 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Paintpots Manchester Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.875 for Paintpots Manchester Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 3.373 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Paintpots Manchester Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 16.2 positive Reviews (81 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 16.2 Target = 0.123

  • 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 loved it, he never wanted to leave and we only finished as we moved away and he was ready for school. The only gripe would be the outside could be a bit bigger, but it's the City Centre and what can you do!? The use of the Nursery minibus helps though and they visited the Science and Industry Museum, Sea Life Centre, Manchester Museum, it was just great. The girls are fantastic, I really mean that. We keep in touch regularly via Facebook, that's how much it means to our family!!

My twins attended Paintpots Manchester Day Nursery for 4 years whilst I worked in Manchester. The Managers were all excellent, always eager to help and the room leaders and key workers that both my children had were brilliant. I don't think we'll be having any more children, think 3 is enough :), however, I'd be more than happy to suggest Paintpots to anyone looking for a Nursery that's a little bit different than the identikit larger chains, much more personal!!

My daughter started at Paintpots in Feb'14 and has thrived under the care of the staff who have been attentive and supportive from day one. She enjoys all of the activities on offer especially the outdoor play. We are pleased with the variety of meals on offer and as such she is not a fussy eater at home. Her key workers have played an enormous part in her success with potty training, learning her colours/letters/numbers and we continue to be amazed at how far she has progressed in the last two years. We will have no qualms in sending our son to Paintpots on my return to work.

From day one we felt like our son was in a secure environment. We were anxious about leaving him for long periods in the day and the staff were very reassuring. The daily diaries including what they had eaten, what activities they had done, and toileting etc were fantastic. As he progressed through the nursery rooms we noticed the growing confidence and new skills he was learning. Our son always came home from nursery very happy with tales to tell of the exciting things he had done in the day. All the staff are very approachable, and have a genuine interest in your child's well being and life. Steph in particular in the classroom is a fantastic nursery teacher. I would highly recommend Paintpots, and we are very sad to leave the Paintpots family!
