Owlet Children’s Place opened in 2011, with a primary aim of providing excellent childcare and education to children aged from birth to five-years-old in the local community and through strong partnership links with Owlet Children and Family Centre.

In October 2015, Owlet Children’s Place was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted and it was recognised that “partnerships with parents and external agencies are a key strength and highly effective in making sure that appropriate interventions are secured and all children receive support”.

Owlet Children’s Place believes in providing a fun and challenging provision, through combining excellent childcare with a rich education and making the most of strong community links.

The nursery maintains a happy and caring environment, with staff supporting children to learn through play, building strong relationships and getting to know each child and also their parents. The free-flow system also encourages children to make decisions and access the outdoor play areas freely.

Reviews

9.9 Children's Place Owlet has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.934)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Children's Place Owlet 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children's Place Owlet in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.934 for Children's Place Owlet is calculated as follows: ( (213 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.934

  • 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 Children's Place Owlet is based on 15 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). 15 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.

Management and staff team are amazing they make me feel at ease everytime I drop my little girl off.
The interactions and time they put into my daughter has brought her on so much, she is more confident, chatty and loves going into the nursery. I can't praise them enough.

Our twin boys went to preschool at Childrens Place Owlett full time and absolutely loved it. They often came home with lots of stories about what they made or got up to during their day. The facilities indoors and outdoors is absolutely great - lots of room to run and play! We had wonderful key workers who really brought out the best in them. Our boys, whilst at times displayed difficult behaviour, were always treated fairly and consistently which made a massive improvement. All the staff are well trained and always professional. We engaged rather quickly in finding solutions that would work for both school and home in order to help our boys manage themselves better. I feel that had enabled us as parents to be apart of our children's learning and development even when they were at school. I highly recommend Childrens Place Owlet. Now our boys have moved onto Reception and will definitely miss the warm smiles from all the staff!! We have many wonderful memories of our time there!!

Having previous experience with our first child at Children's Place Owlet nursery, we were really happy that our daughter got a place in the baby room. When you walk in you feel very welcome, it's a safe, clean and warm environment. The staff are friendly and very approachable, communication between staff and parents is fantastic, not just with sharing concerns, but also hearing about my daughters day, seeing photos and hearing about the new things she's achieved. The children there all seem happy, including my daughter who is always excited to get to nursery and runs off to play with her friends or toys. I feel that my daughter is offered a good range of activities and opportunities and that she is well cared for by the team.

My son has been attending this nursery in the toddler room since Jan 17 and has accelerated in his development. The staff are so attentive and passionate in what they do and this is reflected in the enjoyment my son gets from the nursery. The meal menus are on show and are healthy and varied daily. Every day I am given a full itinerary of what my son has been doing and how much he has eaten which is fantastic. The nursery is outstanding and is more than what you'd expect from a nursery. I'm so glad I moved my son to this nursery and highly recommend it to any parent.

The staff have been brilliant throughout my daughter's time in the baby room. She is now going up to the toddler room having taster sessions first, which she seems to have loved. She has come on so much and I can really see what she progresses in, her speech has come on really well and her routine of shoes and coats, tidying away and also getting rid of her dummy through the day.

My daughter has been attending Children's Place Owlet for the last 18 months. The staff are brilliant they take the time with every child and go beyond their duties. The centre is always clean and tidy. Children's Place encourages every child to reach their potential and provide a well established, friendly unit for each child to learn and develop at their own pace. There are also lots of activities on a daily basis to encourage social development.

My son has just left this nursery after being there from 16 months to 3 years 6 months. I have worked in other childcare settings and schools myself so am quite particular about my children's care. This nursery is excellent and I would highly recommend it to anybody seeking childcare in the area. It provides personal care for each child, adapting to their individual needs and always involving parents in their child's developmental records. My son has an egg allergy and the nursery always made sure he had a different coloured plate to identify this and worked hard to ensure he had similar food to the other children so didn't feel any different. His development has come on immensely in all areas, the resources are really varied and the outdoor provision is great too - full waterproofs enable wet weather play, and in really hot weather the children are kept inside the air-conditioned rooms with outdoor resources being brought in. The manager is always available to talk to as well.
