    The Average Rating of 4.771 for Kiddywinks Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.771

    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.

    The 4.356 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddywinks Private Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

Reviewer Connection to Kiddywinks Private Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

This nursery is under new management as of recently, and my little boy absolutely loves it as do I! As well as ensuring and encouraging educational development, the nursery also makes sure the children have fun! They are always taken out to the library or to the park or on trips, which I think is great because a lot of other nurseries don't really do this (in my experience). I'll be sad when my little boy has to leave here and go to school! But when I have a second child I will be bringing them here. The best nursery in Halifax! The staff are wonderful and extremely friendly and helpful. My little boy always comes home talking about them.

This is also one of the only nurseries in Halifax that offers 20 hours free funding rather than 15. And the manager always looks at the best childcare route to take to make it as cheap as possible! This is one of the more purse friendly nurseries too, I've been quoted upwards of £750 a month in the past.

Thank you for your feedback

My daughter has surpassed levels of learning and understanding that I could have imagined, she even came home almost completely potty trained! As a working mum I would recommend this nursery to anyone who is looking for great care and learning for their child/children.

Thank you for feedback!

My children have attended nursery full time and now my youngest child attends the after school club and holiday club. The nursery has always been very accommodating to my work commitments and the staff have been great with both my children. The children were helped to settle in quickly, building bonds with staff and learning new skills around sharing and friendships with peers. We always receive pictures and models they have been doing in the nursery and there is great communication from the nursery regarding the children. There are also a large amount of activities outside of the nursery, especially during the holidays such as picnics at the park, the cinema, play gyms and the local library. My nursery bill is spread out over the year which means the 12 instalments is equal, making it affordable for my family and I am not hit will unexpected high bills, especially during the holidays, however, this is an arrangement I have with the nursery, and I would suggest you discuss the same.

Thank you for feedback!

The staff are friendly and helpful, my child has been at this nursery since last year and never had any issues. Once my child got diagnosed with a dietary requirement, the staff were very understanding and have helped to ensure all my child's food has been similar to the other children's whilst also maintaining her dietary needs. My child loves going to nursery and the activities that they offer and I know she's safe and happy. Cannot ask for better!
