The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Kindercare - Farsley (Part of the Treetops Family) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kindercare - Farsley (Part of the Treetops Family) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.411 for Kindercare - Farsley (Part of the Treetops Family) is calculated as follows: ( (103 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (7 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.411

  • 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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kindercare - Farsley (Part of the Treetops Family) is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

My children have attended this nursery for the last 4 years and since it was taken over and ceased to be the previous owners and the senior staff left, the standards have fallen in remarkably. Since the new group owners took over the site, the quality is even worse.
The food is overpriced and of poor quality and the level of pre school teaching is non-existent. My daughter left today and there is no way if I had another child would I allow them to attend this nursery. Such a good place 3 years ago is now no place you should send your child.

The nursery has been through significant change in the last few months and a lot of staff have left which has meant a lot of uncertainty for us all.
I have been impressed with how the current interim manager is dealing with it and things seem more stable. I would be in a better position to "not sit on the fence" with my answer in a few months. During this time I would hope to see no more staff leave and them build on the current work they are doing.

Since my child has recently started nursery I have been very happy with the care they received, every day they come home telling me stories and what activities they have done, who she has played with. My child has become so confident and I know I've chosen the right nursery. The staff are fantastic and have made me feel at ease when leaving her as it's the first time we have really been apart.

Both my sons have attended Kindercare - Farsley, since they were 9 months old (my eldest, has just left to attend school) and I cannot recommend this nursery and it's staff highly enough. I have always been completely confident that they are getting the highest quality of care and that the staff really care about their wellbeing. They love going and have developed in leaps and bounds.

My daughter has been attending nursery for one day a week for the last 18 months and she loves it. As soon as she started we noticed big changes in her development and she comes home doing something new each week. The staff are all very friendly and professional.

Our son was at Kindercare - Farsley for 4 years and enjoyed every minute. He made lifelong friends there and still talks about the staff with affection and joy. He participated in lots of activities, including walking to the park, painting, baking, construction and reading to name but a few. Running around in the outdoor play area is also a real bonus. All of the staff are dedicated and caring.

Our daughter has also been at the nursery since 2015 and has made so many friends. She loves the activities the staff do with her and enjoys getting outside as much as possible. She talks about nursery a lot at home. The nursery have supported her development very well - letting her be independent and supporting her speech/potty training.

We would recommend the nursery to friends and family.

Since my son started going to Kindercare last year, he has really come on and developed so well. The staff are fantastic and have been very good at identifying his needs, and encouraging him to learn. We were apprehensive as we had just moved from Scotland where he loved his nursery, but he hasn't looked back! He has made lots of friends and knows all the staff by name. There is a focus on helping kids to learn but it is balanced with creativity and play. We would thoroughly recommend to other parents looking for a small, intimate and well structured nursery.

Such a welcoming feeling and great atmosphere on entering the nursery which I love and my son is very happy at Kindercare. Settled in great.

The staff are always friendly, positive and cheery, all the way from the nursery nurses who look after my son up through to management level and always on hand to help. Very down to earth and supportive. Thank you to all :-)

The best nursery there is! I believe my daughter has had the best start she ever could of by going to Kindercare Farsley (Treetops!) and she is continuing to grow into the most well mannered, polite and brainy little girl and I have to credit the amazing staff at this nursery for helping her grow into the incredible little girl she is!
From the moment I viewed this nursery I didn't need to look anywhere else, the staff are absolute treasures and they genuinely care and love every child that walks through the door. The manager could not be more welcoming, friendly and loving and this flows through to all the other brilliant staff. My little girl calls the manager nana she loves her so much!
We have recently moved and we travel a long way every day to get there as I wouldn't even consider my girl going elsewhere for her childcare. I cannot praise the nursery and the staff enough and would recommend the nursery a million times over!

I would highly recommend Kindercare Farsley to friends and family. My son loves going every week. He's come on so much since starting. His talking has really developed as well as his interaction with other children/adults. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It was a big decision for me and my partner whether to put him in a private nursery or not and we know now it was the right one as he loves it!

My little girl is 6 months old and has recently started nursery at Kindercare- Farsley. So far, I have not been disappointed. The staff have been so lovely, welcoming her to the nursery and put us at ease straight away. Even in the short time she has been at Kindercare- Farsley, we have been very impressed by how well she is looked after there and the care and attention she has been given (the nursery have even helped us with weaning her!). We are very happy that we chose this nursery for our daughter and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Since the day I had my first visit In 2013, I knew I had made the right decision for my daughter.
My daughter is now 3yrs old and still loves going to nursery, not to just to see her friends but to see the staff as well.
As a parent, you have to make the decisions for your baby and do what you think is right and now she's at the age where she can tell me about her day, I know I've made the right choice, especially when she is telling me about a member of staff who gave her a cuddle, what she has done with her friends, showing me her artwork and telling me what it is. Even when she says she hasn't done anything, I just look at her clothes which tell me a different story.

My son absolutely loved his time at Kindercare. The staff made him feel welcome from his first day, which was a big relief for myself and my husband as we had not only moved our son to a new nursery but also to a new home.

Unlike his first nursery, we came to pick up our son at the end of the day and it took us ages to get him out as he was having so much fun!

The food was of a good variety and very nutritious. They made sure he had his five a day in a variety of ways.

I would highly recommend Kindercare to anyone who is considering the nursery as the staff treat all the children like they are their own. It is a big weight off my mind to know that while I'm at work, my son is not pining for me but having a good day.
