Reviews

9.1 Kinder Castle has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.067)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Kinder Castle 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kinder Castle in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.917 for Kinder Castle is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kinder Castle 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

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400

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

This is a brilliant nursery, kind, caring staff. I couldn't ask for better care for my daughter. They keep me informed of all the activities and all the information I need to know. My daughter always gets good healthy snacks and a good variety of food. Highly recommend this nursery.

Excellent, high-quality staff, very professional.
Overall my toddler absolutely loves nursery, he's learnt the names of most of the staff and asks to see them when he's not in nursery! Thankyou for making him feel safe, secure and welcome :)

We love Kinder Castle! My daughter has been going there for the last two and half years and she's loved it there. She's in the preschool room but has enjoyed all the rooms and age groups Kinder Castle has to offer. The nursery is spacious and light and clean. I loved the fact there is a separate toddler room to the baby room. The staff love the kids and are keen to help them grow and learn. I know she always gets a good meal at Kinder Castle as well. The owner is marvellous! Will be sad when it's nursery graduation day!

My daughter has been attending Kinder Castle since December 2015. The nursery may cost slightly more than others in the area but the care they provide is exceptional and well worth the extra cost. My daughter is 4 years of age and can confidentially write her own name, count to 20, say the alphabet and can even answer simple addition sums. I don't know of many other children her age that can do all of the above and I credit this to Kinder Castle.
Since attending she has flourished in all areas and I believe the process of moving from nursery into reception this coming September will be easy with thanks to Kinder Castle.

I cannot praise the nursery highly enough and would recommend it to anyone looking for exceptional care for their children.

I can not say anything bad about this nursery. Staff great and very friendly. The building it is situated in is beautiful and well looked after. Only space that could do with a bit of improvement is outside. I wish it looked more greener. But overall this nursery has been a great benefit to our family.
