The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Childsplay Private Day Nursery 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 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Childsplay Private Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 9 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 4.924 for Childsplay Private Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (243 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 263 Ratings = 4.924

  • 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 4.957 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Childsplay Private Day Nursery is based on 9 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 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.957

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

Used this nursery since 2013 and one very apparent thing is how much they do to help kids grow from baby to school, taking one of mine from a shy quiet toddler to an outgoing sassy kid!!

Info on what the kids do on a daily basis is excellent and the food is second to none, and above all this the nursery accommodate for short notice change in plans, in which I'm sure anyone would agree is a godsend.

The nursery is a cornerstone for my family life and I have never had concerns or doubts, would definitely recommend for all local parents!

My little boy loves coming to Childsplay Private Day Nursery. He has created great bonds with his carers and made some friends. It has brought on his development as he is learning new words actions to nursery rhymes learning to share. He has even learned a few numbers at only 18 months old. I never have an issue leaving him he is always happy to stay and always shows me a few toys when I return to collect him. Even though my job changed and it is now out of my way to bring him, I will be continuing to keep him at child's play. It is also extremely secure and will go above and beyond to ensure that children are safe.

Both my sons have attended here from a young age and have excellent interaction from the staff. My youngest didn't like to talk before he started going and they have brought him on leaps and bounds he is not even too and he knows his colours and sings along to songs and loves going. My oldest only goes for breakfast club and after school club now but loves it still so accommodating too well done ladies keep you the hard work

Little one enjoys going to Childsplay. Learning with play makes things enjoyable. They play with a wide range of toys to painting, baking and outside play. Staff friendly and supportive. Food homemade and smells lovely. Would recommend to others.

I cannot praise the staff enough at Childsplay, since my son started in October 2016 his development has come on loads. He learnt to walk, can now say some words, can communicate with me using actions and is now very independent. I always feel at ease when dropping him at nursery because I know he's in very safe, caring hands. The staff are not only excellent with the children they make the parents feel at ease too if you've any queries they are always there to answer them for you. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

I have used Childsplay since my eldest daughter was 4 1/2 months old, my son and younger daughter also went. I love this nursery, the staff are so lovely. I wouldn't want to send them anywhere else and would recommend them to anyone. My youngest is 2 and I will hopefully be sending her too. Well done Childsplay, keep up the good work.

My daughter has been attending Childsplay for just over 2 years, starting in the 0-2 years room (Snowdrops) currently in the 2-3 yrs room (Buttercups) and will be moving up to the pre-school rooms (Sunflowers) next month. She has loved her time there and adores all the staff. Each group have been (and are) wonderful. We are so grateful to them for taking such good care of her - it was so hard to go back to work and not be constantly with her but they took all the worry away. They really are wonderfully brilliant. She has developed and grown up so much under their guidance. Childsplay rock.

She is loving nursery and often brings home pictures she has done while at nursery. I cant praise the staff highly enough my daughter has come on in leaps and bounds since starting here. Would recommend to anybody.

My son has been going to Childsplay Nursery since he was a baby. He was a difficult baby with lactose intolerance and the staff bent over backwards to help him. He has moved up through the rooms and each have been amazing with him. All the staff have worked wonders with him. He loves going to nursery and has forged some strong bonds with some of the staff that have helped to look after him. He will really miss going when he starts school. The work the staff do with the kids is amazing and my son has come on leaps and bounds with his counting and phonics and writing - all down to the nursery staff. I cant praise them highly enough. It is going to be a hard decision to take him out for school. The staff are very friendly and take the time to talk to you whenever you see them.

My son started at Childsplay in January 2016 after I returned suddenly to the UK from China. Not knowing the area very well I explored the possibility of using a few different nurseries. The welcome I received when I arrived at Childsplay was second-to-none. The girl who gave the tour was able to answer all of my questions and immediately put my mind at ease. Making the decision to send him there was easy and the daily rate is extremely good value for money.
Now my son attends Childsplay (baby room) 3 days a week. The quality of care he receives is excellent. They keep me informed of his progress throughout the day via text message. I am most impressed by the food provided as it is all home made on the premises. What more could a parent want than knowing your child is spending their day in a home-from-home? The staff in the baby room are friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. They have made the move from China easy to manage because of their care and attention.

My daughter has been at this nursery for over 2 years and still present. I am very pleased at how much she has progressed. The nursery is very well presented and maintained. We are given monthly news letters of what the children will be learning about that month. The level of teaching is brilliant as children learn inside the nursery and are taken outside to learn things too. E.g park, librarys, train and fire stations and many more. I am always comfortable speaking to the teachers about my child and if i have any concerns about anything they are very helpful. My daughter loves going to nursery and tells me a lot of good things when we get back home. I would recommend this nursery to all my friends and family with young children. Also my son will be starting at this nursery this month i am more than excited to see him progress and make lots of friends here too. Thank you to childsplay.

My daughter attended Childsplay from being 2 years old until she was 3 and half and I have nothing but praise for the team. When she first started she was a very shy young girl and it took her a long time to settle but the staff were amazing with her and by the time she left to start school she had grown so much and gained so much confidence which helped her settle into her new school with no problems. She had a good relationship with staff and does say she misses them but she does still see them now occasionally as her younger brother now attends Childsplay. I would and have recomended the nursery to friends and family. The staff always have smiles on their faces and always make you feel welcome and comfartble. There a fab team.

Fantastic!
My little girl has been attending for 12 months now and the staff are amazing! She suffers from multiple allergies and the staff at nursery have gone out of their way to ensure that she always has safe meals to eat and that any baking activities are tailored so that she can join in safely. They regularly go on walks to the local park which she enjoys and always comes home telling me about all of the fun things that they have been doing.
In the 12 months that she has been at nursery her letter sounds and letter formation have improved imensley as have her counting skills all thanks to the hard work of the staff.
