Reviews

9.2 Children's Place Halifax has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.168)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Children's Place Halifax is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children's Place Halifax in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.575 for Children's Place Halifax is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (59 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.575

  • 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 4.593 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Children's Place Halifax is based on 7 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 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.593

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

I am pleased so far with my child's progress. Clearly the staff have worked on him well as he is telling me to leave now as apposed to the early day's when he used to cry for Dad.

My son has attended the Halifax Children's Place for nearly a year now and he has settled in really nicely. It fills me with confidence to know that he is happy and content and so well cared for. I love to look through his key worker book, which is full of lovely photos and detailed observations! I am also impressed with the nutritious yummy meals that are provided, which I know my boy really enjoys! A big thank you to all the lovely staff!

My son has been going to this nursery since being in the baby room. He has just started preschool and I have no problems with this nursery at all. The staff are very friendly and my son has grown since he has started. He looks forward to going which speaks for itself.

Children's Place Halifax is an excellent nursery and I would highly recommend it to anyone with young children.
The staff are always very welcoming and interested in your child's time at home.
They support the individual child to develop their own interests and skills through supportive play and will support your ethos as a parent in how you choose to raise your child.
My daughter loves her time there and skips up the steps and in the door.
I am truly confident the staff cherish her learning and development through adventure and explorative play without compromising on safety.

Our child joined the nursery in January, he has settled very well, being his 1st setting in 3 years, we were all a little anxious but the support the staff have shown him and us has been wonderful. They have helped us all ease into nursery life with no tears (well a few from me). They have been consistent in their approach, guidelines and friendliness. They have a fantastic team and feel lucky we picked the right nursery for us.

The nursery provides a developmental book for each child. This is an excellent way for parents to see progress and development of a child. The staff are helpful. They encourage each child to develop confidence by having activities like baking.

My daughter started nursery in October last year. It was a worrying time for us as we didn't know how she would adapt and what it would be like for her. All of our worries and concerns were soon put to rest by the warm, caring pleasant staff in the baby room. With lots of love and reassurance my daughter soon settled in and thoroughly enjoys going to nursery. The environment is happy and friendly, these vibes are apparent as soon as you enter the building. There is a very positive and caring atmosphere which you can feel in every room. Also the food is excellent. Nearly every day my daughter comes home with big ticks against all her meals, she sometimes has seconds. Before she came to nursery she was quite fussy.

My daughter settled in very well in the nursery within the first few weeks though we expected it to take longer. She is bonding very well with her key person and learning new things everyday that she comes to nursery. The staff have really been warm and supportive. It has been a nice experience overall and we hope it will be all good in the future also.

My daughter has been attending Children's Place Halifax since she was 10 months old. She has always been happy here, well cared for, well fed and gently encouraged to develop all the skills she'll need when she starts school next year. I will be sad when she leaves but happy in the knowledge I could not have chosen a more lovely place to send her while I went to work
