Reviews

7.8 Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.771)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 4.735 for Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal is calculated as follows: ( (158 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.735

  • 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 3.036 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 28 positive Reviews (140 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 28 Target = 0.036

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

I wanted to put down in writing how great Kids Allowed was for my child. My son was one of the first children to start at Kids Allowed and we were shown around Cheadle Royal when it was a building site. The manager's passion for her nursery shone through from the start and we were never let down. The staff that looked after my son were amazing and some 6 years after he has left are still friends to this day. My son has gone on to be a great pupil at school and is always praised for his behaviour amongst his friends and his ability to achieve great results in class. This is far from how I was at school and my wife and I put this down to the grounding he got from Kids Allowed in his first 4 years. When he started primary school he came from full time at Kids Allowed and was more than prepared to start learning following the excellent support from the staff at Kids Allowed.
I cannot recommend Kids Allowed enough, it is wonderful.

Wow, that is amazing feedback thank you. We can't believe how grown up the original children that joined at the very beginning are. We love to hear about our alumni and are pleased to hear the impact his early years' experience has had as a great foundation for school and beyond xxx

My 20-month-old loves this nursery. The staff are lovely and have a genuine interest in her. The activities are fantastic and the variety of food is great. They do courses eg paediatric 1st aid which is great. Love the fact that they have a woddlers some nurseries just have baby's and toddlers. Only negative it is a bit pricey.

My two children have both been at Kids Allowed Cheadle since they were six months old and they have during their time there had a wonderful experience, both in terms of making friends, learning, developing social skills and becoming confident people. The care has always been exemplary and we would recommend Kids Allowed Cheadle to anyone.

Both my boys have been to Kids Allowed and our new baby daughter is joining in 2017. We have always been really pleased with the level of care the staff at kids allowed have given our boys. The boys have always been happy to go to nursery and have always done several different activities each day. The staff are fabulous and really get to know your child. I would definitely recommend Kids Allowed to any parent.

Kids Allowed is an excellent nursery. I've been delighted with all elements, including the friendly/helpful staff, the activities, education and food for my child. I would gladly recommend it to all of my friends and family with children.

After moving my daughter from a smaller nursery setting we've found she's come on leaps and bounds in the Cheadle pre-school. She's becoming much more confident and is taking more of an interest in phonics and numbers etc. It seems as though most days there is an element of learning incorporated to playtime. She's also been lucky enough to go on some outings which she has been very excited about!

Great to read that our pedagogy of learning through play has proven so effective x

Our daughter has attended Kids Allowed in Cheadle since she was 8 months old, she is now almost 3 and will be there until she goes to school next September. Its always hard leaving your child with anyone, especially when they are so young and dependent but Kids Allowed have made the whole process as easy at it could be. From the moment she went to babies she formed relationships with both the girls who look after her and the other kids within the room - they are caring, attentive, structured and nurturing. They follow a structured learning process even from a young age to make sure they have all the necessary skills at the right ages and things such as drinking out of a 'big girls' cup' and toilet training have been a breeze because of the support we have had from them. The biggest compliment I can give is that we were on holiday last week and on Monday morning she sat on the stairs telling us to hurry up because she wanted to get to nursery to see her friends!

I have had two children go through Kids Allowed Cheadle from 6 and 9 months respectively to school age on a 5 days a week basis. Kids Allowed provide a fantastic fun filled learning environment with excellent staff and superb purpose built facilities. Both of my girls thoroughly enjoyed their experience and were always eager to attend nursery and (now for one holiday club), day after day. It may not be the cheapest but I believe it is unquestionably the best!

My sons been going to Kids Allowed in Cheadle for just over a year, he started off in woddlers and has moved to toddlers. The staff are lovely, always have been. I have never had any issues with them, very easygoing and polite. The carers are lovely, very considerate and if I've ever had any special requests, there has been no issue what so ever.
I am very happy with the nursery and the staff, I feel that my child is safe and looked after when I leave him.
I have recommended this nursery to lots of people.
The only minor comment is that I feel that kids allowed is slightly expensive and overpriced and that the rules about swapping days is overpriced too. A part from that its defo a great nursery!

Fantastic nursery where my daughter has made great friends (staff and other children). She has come out of her shell so much and they have really prepared her in every way for school.
Love that they get out and about on trips - lots of fun and many learning opportunities. She's been to parks, museums, safari park, on a ferry etc!
The staff are all friendly and lovely and she adores them all.

The staff at kids allowed are all excellent and the care and attention they pay to each individual child is fantastic. I enjoy hearing about their day and seeing their monthly record and photos of what they have done. The key worker system is brilliant and it's great to see a special bond develops between them although I know that my child is happy even when they are not there.

Kids Allowed Nursery is one of the best nurseries I know.
Very kind, professional and helpful staff.
My Daughter has a great time there, and she has developed many skills since she joined the Nursery six months ago.

My daughter is just over 2 and has been attending KA since she was 10 months.
We all love it, my daughter is very happy there, the staff genuinely care and they have varied activities.
I was sold on the fact that they take them out on trips which I think is important to give them variety in their day, and the garden space is very good anyway.
What is also great for me is how flexible they are if I want to swap days etc- I understand from friends that this is not the case at all nurseries.
I can't believe how much she learns there already at only 2!
Overall we are very happy with the care, the activities, the genuine warmth of the staff and the flexibility. Would definitely recommend.

My only disappointment with this nursery is their 'staff to child' ratios for excursions.
They have 2 members of staff accompany 11 children on coach trips to local cities and attractions.

For me this ratio is fundamentally dangerous.

It only takes one missing child, or one of the two staff to have to deal with a major incident or fall ill whilst in Liverpool, and they could have a disaster on their hands.

I challenge anyone to find a nursery with a lower ratio.

What I do know is that as soon as our kids go to primary school they will insist on a 4 to 12 ratio.

That's twice as many adults. And these kids are older!
We've raised it with management but it has fallen on deaf ears.

The saddest part? My son said to me recently 'I don't go on day trips do I daddy' and it broke my heart.

So I'm left in an impossible position.
Do I let him go on the coach and hope for the best, or deny him that pleasure, keep him safe and hope he isn't affected in the long term because I denied him day-trips?

jennie johnson, ceo at Kids Allowed Cheadle Royal responded to this review on 30 Jun 2016:

Hi, as you know when we discussed your concerns together, we risk assess each trip we do individually. Some trips are on a 1:2 ratio, 1:3, others on a 1:5 etc, some are risk assessed and we assess them as unsafe for children of this age and we do not do them at all. Staff can only lead a trip if they have received extra training and this is refreshed often. We also provide "walkadile" harnesses where the risk assessment feels it is needed and finally we also know for each location we go to, what support we would get from the location (if any) in the event of an emergency. We do take child safety very seriously and we have reviewed our policy on the basis of your feedback but felt confident we have considered this appropriately, especially as each trip is assessed uniquely. All team are also first aid trained, carry essentials in a "trip bag", have a mobile phone to call for support etc. We will keep the policy under review and are never complacent about safety.

Excellent nursery, would recommend it. Both our daughters have now attended kids allowed at Christie fields and Cheadle and we would have no hesitation in recommending the nurseries. Thank you to all the staff.

So I've spent the last couple of days feeling super emotional about my little boy growing up, leaving Kids Allowed and starting school! He started Kids Allowed part time at 11 months and whilst he has remained part time the care and attention to his childcare hasn't been done by halves! He's made special friends with both staff and children.
I will remember fondly forever the good times, Christmas shows, graduation songs and even the bumps bruises & messy times that have helped to shape his future so far!
