Reviews

9.6 Active Kids Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.564)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Active Kids 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Active Kids Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 5 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 4.906 for Active Kids Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.906

  • 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 4.658 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Active Kids Day Nursery is based on 5 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.658

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

I have tried a few nursery’s with my little boy and I can honestly say Active Kids is by far the best nursery, he settled so well. The staff are so accommodating and friendly, they help calm your nerves when you're worried about your little one. The nursery is very clean and the foods really good for what my son needs. The outdoor area is amazing and spacious also. The activities they play with the kids are really good too. I would most definitely recommend this nursery to everyone.

Thank you so much, Nicole, for your lovely comments, we really appreciate you taking the time to send this through.

Our daughter attended Active Kids Day Nursery for approximately 18 months and was very happy there. The staff are excellent, the food likewise (and is made from scratch) and the facilities, especially the outdoor areas are superb for the children, regardless of age. The outside areas are enclosed on all sides, so the kids can run off steam in absolute safety. I usually had to drag my daughter away each day!

Both my children attended Active Kids Day Nursery. I cannot recommend Active Kids enough. The care and attention they both received was second to none. The Staff here were all very knowledgeable about my children's learning and paid great attention to ensuring that I was aware of their progress and they also addressed their personal needs with great care.

The huge outdoor woodland play area is, without a doubt, the best in the area, the children spend most of the day outside, learning, playing and most of all getting the benefit of having the freedom to run around in the fresh air. The food here is fantastic, my children got fresh fruit and vegetables every day and I was never worried that they would come home hungry. Such a fantastic nursery, my children have come away from there being confident, well mannered and full of knowledge. Thank you.

I have two children at Active Kids Day Nursery and both have benefited from the engaging and stimulating environment Active Kids provide. The outdoor area is brilliant and I sometimes can't get my youngest to leave at home time when she's busy playing there!
My oldest is in Pre School and has had extra help with a stutter which has helped him enormously over the last few months and my youngest is in small toddlers and has learnt some sign language and her confidence over the last year has grown and grown.
The staff are all so caring and helpful and go out of there way to help with any issues that come up. I highly recommend Active Kids to everyone that asks where my children go to nursery.

My son has been with the nursery since he was 9 months old. The staff have always been fantastic with him and I have seen him continually grow in confidence, skills, ability and show his personality daily.
Every day he has completed different tasks and interacted with others, he especially loved the outdoor play, especially the veg garden.
They have gone the extra mile in flexibility on occasions when required, introduced new learning with French classes, that he adores.
Overall, the ladies there are fantastic and the nursery brilliant.
Thank you.

Thanks, Lindsey, we love what we do and it's nice to know we are appreciated!

I just wanted to say what a lovely nursery Active Kids is since my little boy started in August 2015 at the age of 10 months he's come on leaps and bounds, I was very reluctant to let him start nursery but felt he should to socialise with other children and I knew deep down it would be good for him. He goes two days a week and absolutely loves it, he loves to play with other children, he's growing into such a confident polite little boy.
They do so much with the children here, from messy play, to Making things, to singing, dancing and playing outside. The menus are also the very best, there is such a variety of good healthy foods every week.
I can't thank them enough my little one never wants to leave he has so much fun.

Many thanks Kylie. We really love our work but it is good to know we are appreciated!

We currently send our 3rd child to Active Kids with our oldest two still having fond memories at aged 10 and 8. Our son is well looked after and cared for with a team of talented staff. Activities are varied and the recently revamped outdoor space is brilliant.

Thank you Beckie!

Fantastic staff, my daughter loves going there and talks alot about what she does and who her friends are.
She originally went to a different nursery but cried every day.
Completely different here. Fantastic place to send your child knowing they're safe and learning too!
