  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppies Day Nursery, Knutsford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 10 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 4.632 for Poppies Day Nursery, Knutsford is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.632

  • 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 4.893 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppies Day Nursery, Knutsford is based on 10 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.893

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

Our two sons currently attend Poppies and both love it. They can't wait to get out of the car and start their day. The staff are highly professional and offer a caring environment in which the children are nurtured. As my eldest has attended for three and a half years I have seen his development flourish in the care of Poppies and it has been lovely to see the staff share these accomplishments.
We would not hesitate to recommend Poppies as a great nursery.

Poppies is a very welcoming and supportive nursery. The staff are really experienced and I feel my child is being looked after to the highest possible standard when not in my care. It's a shame the rooms are not slightly bigger for the children to play.

My daughter has attended poppies for around 1 ½ years (she has recently turned 2) and in that time she has really developed and a lot of what she has learnt in that time is down to the excellent learning opportunities at Poppies. She will often come home singing a song we have never sung at home and chatting the about people she knows at the nursery. The staff are all so lovely and I feel like she really enjoys her time at Poppies. It comes across that the staff really care about the children there and as a parent it makes me feel so much more comfortable leaving there to go to work knowing she is well looked after. The only suggestion I would have is that we can access their review books online and review their progress as it happens. It would also be good to have access to upcoming events etc. online. At the moment this just seems to be done using posters throughout the building which could be missed. Basically, more focus on communication through the website would be great!

Poppies Day Nursery is a lovely nursery! My son settled very well in the warm and friendly environment Poppies provides. He loves going to "school". We are very happy with everything they offer-learning, outside play, music, fab food, caring staff and lovely space. :)

I am very pleased with how my daughter has settled here. After being at a larger nursery that had its benefits I was apprehensive of sending her here, she struggled to settle in her first room but now she has moved up she loves it. I am over the moon with how she has progressed in the rainbow room. All the staff are so lovely. I feel very content leaving her with you and know she feels safe and loved by her room staff and trust they would ring me straight away if there was a problem.

All very lovely and my little girl really enjoys it. More care and attention needed when re-dressing after nappy change and more nose wiping.

Thank you very much for your review, it is lovely to hear that your daughter enjoys coming to nursery so much. It is that time of year when there are lots of colds about but we do try to keep on top of this as much as possible. I will mention it to her key workers for you though.
