Reviews

7 Fledglings Day Nursery Stretford has a Review Score of 7 (7.008)

The Review Score of 7 (maximum of 10) for Fledglings Day Nursery Stretford 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fledglings Day Nursery Stretford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.758 for Fledglings Day Nursery Stretford is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.758

  • 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 2.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fledglings Day Nursery Stretford is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.500 , then divided by 2 = 0.250

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

Fledglings nursery is an excellent nursery all staff are very friendly and welcoming, they teach them lots of new things each day, my daughter has been going for 3 yrs and has loved every minute there, there is always lots of activities for the children to do and also lots of parent/grandparents days so we can get involved as well! The new elog is also a great idea it's nice to see how my daughter is doing during the day and lots of pictures sent! It's nice that the management staff also get involved with the children and know every single child's name. They are very understanding and always ready to help with anything if I need it! The food is always nice and healthy and plenty of snacks on offer (my daughter has second helpings every time so she definitely enjoys the food)!

Many thanks for such a lovely review Louise! We have loved seeing your daughter progress and develop into a lovely young lady. She will be missed as she goes into school.

It is a brilliant all round nursery.
The electronic updates and pictures on the child's activities are brilliant. I always look forward to the next update.
The staff are very attentive and supportive, keep it up.

My son has been attending Fledglings in Stretford for about 2 years and he absolutely loves it. He loves the staff and enjoys all activities from dancing to swimming. Thanks to all staff who have helped raise my baby into a smart and loving little boy.

Fledglings is a fantastic nursery.

I have had two children attend, both have been extremely happy, developed excellent social skills and had a wonderful early years education. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and my son currently at the school, adores them. Everybody goes out of their way to ensure the children are safe and content.

What's especially good is the huge number of activities nursery provide, in addition to the usual early years provision. For example, recent visits by an exotic animal keeper, getting children to hold creatures such as giant snails and pythons, a trip on the bus to buy and subsequently plant, seeds and plants for the garden, weekly swimming trips, visits to the local park, visits from musicians, dance teachers and a PE teacher.

I whole heatedly recommend Fledglings, and will be extremely sorry when my youngest leaves.

Thank you for such a wonderful review Nicola! We are very pleased that what we are able to offer our parents and children will develop into happy lifelong memories for our families. Fledglings moto of HAPPY STAFF = HAPPY CHILDREN = HAPPY PARENTS is fully imbedded within Fledglings and we aim for this for every family that comes into Fledglings.

My daughter has been at Fledglings since she was 11 months old and now she is 4 1/2 and is due to leave in the summer. Fledglings has a special place in her life and mine; Fledglings has given my daughter the best foundations to be a social and independent child. The staff are fantastic, very supportive and are willing to help in any way possible.

Many thanks for such a positive review Elaine! We pride ourselves in offering a 'home from home' environment which thoroughly supports not only the children, but ensures our families and carers feel comfortable and confident when leaving their children at Fledglings. All staff within Fledglings work together as a team and offer each other support.

My child has been at Fledglings Stretford since he was 9 months and is now nearly 2. I have always found the staff and management to be great and never had a cause for concern.

The nursery is bright and always clean and my child has come on so much since I increased his days and staff always give us regular updates about progress and new skills.

Security is also great here with the geometric door system so I never worry about safety.

Wonderful to hear such positive feedback Hayley. Security at Fledglings is top priority for both children and members of staff, and we aim to continue this.

We have been extremely pleased with all of the staff and activities at Fledgling's also knowing that our daughter is kept safe at all times is a great relief. I quite like their fingerprint entry system as it's peace of mind yet again in the knowledge that nobody can just walk in unless either met by staff or by using the fingerprint entry system. There's an app for your mobile /tablet which the staff use to send pictures of our daughter engaged in various activities along with a written report each day which is brilliant as although we're enjoying the break, we can still see what she's up to or been up to. Our daughter has progressed in leaps n bounds since attending Fledgling's and we are very appreciative to all the staff associated with the nursery.

Many thanks for such a wonderful review. We endeavour to provide dedicated care and learning opportunities to all children attending Fledglings, and our knowledgeable and caring staff provide children with laughter, learning and enjoyment through the day.

I highly recommend this nursery, my daughter has attended since she was 6 months old and now shes 20 months and is still apart of the nursery due to the fact they are excellent in every area of child care. The staff are very nice and my daughter's room manager is an asset to the nursery along with the other staff. Best nursery in Trafford in my opinion!
