  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.712 for The Quays Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (333 Excellents x 5) + (85 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (6 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 431 Ratings = 4.712

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Quays Private Day Nursery is based on 23 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target Reached = 1

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

Our children have recently started at the nursery and they are really enjoying it so far. The ladies that look after each child are lovely and make a real effort to comfort and look after the girls if ever they are upset. There are lots of activities and time for outdoor play each day. The menus sound great too!

The staff at The Quays are fabulous, made my little boy feel right at home, he loves going to nursery and has made many friends. I'm always informed about how his day has gone, what he has or hasn't eaten. I would highly recommend this nursery as a safe and exciting place for your child to grow and develop.

So pleased we chose this nursery for our daughter. Looked at few in the area but knew from the moment I looked online, and then called to speak with them it was the nursery for us. My daughter has settled in amazingly in her class and the staff are brilliant. I see the things she does daily and knows this will assist with her development.
Definitely, recommend to anyone that asks me!

My son has been going to The Quays full time since he was 9 months old and he absolutely loves it. I'm so proud of how much he has come on and that is all thanks to the staff. They always go that extra mile and he has so much fun and has learnt so much. I was so worried when I went back to work and he started nursery but the staff were amazing and helped not only him settle but were amazing with helping me adjust too. The food is brilliant and that's thanks to the Chef who also goes that extra mile with the children too. My son loves giving him a high five in the morning! Nothing is ever too much trouble and I can honestly say I made the best decision sending my son to The Quays Day Nursery.

My daughter has been in for two months now and has settled amazingly well, this is solely down to the nursery staff going above and beyond to ensure that she is happy and confident. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough. They deserve to come first place in my eyes.

I would definitely recommend The Quays Day Nursery.

Fantastic nursery that appears to have done everything they can to help my child, my husband and I. My son seems to love going to nursery and has made fantastic relationships with his key worker and the other staff there. I feel comfortable approaching the staff about any issues I may have and I am always supported and reassured very quickly.
My son seems to have come on massively since starting at The Quays and I do believe that it is because he is so happy playing and learning with the other children and well educated staff.

My daughter is 16 months old and her first time in a nursery setting. She's finding the settling in very hard but I can't thank the staff enough! They go above and beyond with her to make sure she's ok and to reassure me. She's a fussy eater and again do everything they can to ensure she eats something at nursery. I couldn't be more happy with the choice I made in the quays the staff are amazing and put you at ease right away. I love it!

My son has been attending the Quays Day Nursery since he was 8 months old and he absolutely loves it. The staff are fantastic, so friendly and welcoming. I don't feel as though my son is just a number as they get to know each child individually and I feel that they know my sons personality really well.
Each day I am informed of what activities the children have been doing and what my son is interested in and that's important to me. My son is free to bring his own toys/books and share them with the class which is lovely. I also love that the food is cooked in the nursery and not brought in. It really does feel like a home from home environment.

Wow, what a great nursery!
As everyone knows sending our children to nursery for the first time can be very daunting.
The staff made it such an easy transition for us all and we are very grateful.
Our little boy has developed so well since coming to the nursery and tells us all the time he can't wait to go again!

Thank you so much!

As soon as we looked around the nursery, we loved everything about it. We felt extremely happy leaving our child for the first time, which made going back to work much easier. Having the home visit and settling in sessions meant that we could meet the staff and experience a normal day at the nursery. Our child settled in so well and feel that she has made lots of progress since starting nursery. This is thanks to the fantastic staff and facilities at the nursery.

"A Home from Home, but better" is how I would describe The Quays.

I am 100% comfortable leaving my little boy here each day and have been since he was 10 weeks old. My middle son attended over 15 years ago and the ethos, quality and atmosphere have remained constant over the years. I love the fact that my son can play freely and explore new things amongst peers, whilst under the supervision of high-quality staff.

The detailed feedback I receive on his wellbeing each day is a reassuring aspect to the service provided. This has been particularly important for me as he has been somewhat poorly in his first year and I have felt supported by the nursery.

He is now thriving and growing in life skills each day....THANKYOU :-)

When it came time to selecting a nursery for my younger son there was no contest. We had experience of The Quays from my older son who was there from being 12 months old to the pre-school class so it was our natural first choice. The Quays has always been a friendly, welcoming place with great staff who I feel take time for each of the children as individuals.

Our eldest child (nearly 4) started at The Quays aged 5 months and our youngest (now 15 months) also started very young. The staff in the rooms, kitchen and office are always friendly, welcoming and helpful. We have always found staff willing to be flexible when we have needed to change our session times. The nursery go beyond what you would expect of them in the activities they arrange for the children and they seem to have excellent links with local primary schools.

We moved to the area and the transition for my kids to change nursery was made so much each by all the lovely staff and facilities. Both my children are so happy going to nursery. Every day the do new and fun activities and really try and interlink family life and activities with what they learn at nursery. The parent feedback and info is great.

I can't recommend The Quays highly enough; I have 2 children currently at The Quays, with one leaving for 'big school' in a couple of weeks. Both children have been at the Quays since 9 months old and the care they have received has been exceptional. The girls really understand the uniqueness of each child and just 'get them' - they are treated as individuals with activities planned for each child to suit their likes and hobbies; similarly, they are encouraged to celebrate everybody else's likes and hobbies.
All of the staff, whether they care for my children or not, are brilliant; they are sociable, helpful, professional and all help to care for the children in a fun, caring and safe environment. My children have loved being at this nursery and I will be very sad when number one leaves for primary school.

I have worked at the Quays for nearly nineteen years and during this time I have had three children, I was very lucky in my job for my children to come with me. My youngest child is about to start her new adventure to school and even though I have a lump in my throat at the thought of it, I know nursery have given her the tools to start school from socialising, playing alongside her friends, following her interests and developing into an independent, funny, happy little girl she is today.
One thing I can say throughout my children's time at nursery I have always been treated as a parent which has been important to me.
The staff are dedicated and eager to build on parent partnerships, and most of all giving my daughter lots of cuddles when I'm not there. #firstclasscare xx

My son has been going to quays for the last 15 months and from day one he has had the best time. All the staff in there are very caring and dedicated. I couldn't have asked for a better place for my little one. They have helped him all the way in his development. It's not only the key worker but everyone else have done their bit for him. Everyone is so friendly which makes it easier for me to speak to them if I have any concerns. They have always been very accommodating. Having come to Warrington and not having a family to support me, Quays has been there as a family to me and my little one.

We have been delighted with the excellent care the Quays and it's caring and dedicated staff provide for our daughter who has been at the nursery from 10 months old. The staff have all been incredibly hard working, forming a real bond with both children and parents which provides that reassurance so important in a nursery, especially when first settling in.

They never seem to run out of ideas for fun, exciting and interesting activities for the children. The staff always seem full of enthusiasm and there is great communication about what the children get up to day to day and how they are progressing.

Our daughter absolutely loves her time in nursery and often asks to go there to play, even on her days off, which is a testament to how much she enjoys herself. The team have done so much to build her confidence and bring out her character over the last 14 months. She has come on leaps and bounds during her time at the nursery and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Both my children have enjoyed their time at The Quays over the last 3 years, and the youngest continues to do so. They have each developed many strong friendships over the years.
They have built strong relationships with each of their Key People as they have transitioned through the nursery, and all of the other staff at the nursery.
The nursery values links with home/parents, and builds on the children's experiences outside of nursery, with many opportunities for Parents to get involved with stay-and-play sessions etc.
All staff show a real personal interest in my children and are keen to develop them, especially supporting them during the transition to school.
I don't have any concerns about the excellent care my children receive at The Quays.

Excellent nursery with fully trained and professional staff.

My child started the nursery earlier this year and I can already see a big difference in his confidence and speech and all round learning.

The nursery staff are absolutely brilliant with the children, coming up with daily activities that are up-most fun whilst educational at the same time.

I have loved watching my 'baby' grow up in to a lovely little boy with the help of The Quays Day nursery staff.

Thank you everyone.

We have been using this nursery for our two children since 2013. They provide me with complete peace of mind when I leave them there and the care they receive is second to none. It is very much a 'home from home' environment and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

I cannot thank everyone at the Quays enough for the care, support and fun that they have given my oldest son over the last 3 years and that they continue to offer my younger children. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending The Quays.

My little boy has been at the Quays since he was 9 months old and he is due to start school in September. We love the Quays, it's a very home from home care and they have really helped him turn into the person he is today. The staff and management are always there to chat too about any concerns and any questions at all, they have been a great support to me and my family. A special thanks to pre school who have really allowed him to grow this last 12 months and the Manager who had managed the nursery for pretty much the whole time we've been at the quays she is an absolute credit to the team, we will miss the quays but it's time to let us carry on growing so thank you and if you are a new mum reading this then I would 100% recommend the Quays xx

My son has been in the nursery for 2 years and I cant thank the ladies so much for how much he has developed through their care of him. He has become the chatterbox that he is now through the learning he has been given and i recommend this nursery as excellent.
