Reviews

7 Playcare Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7 (6.985)

The Review Score of 7 (maximum of 10) for Playcare Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Playcare Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.2 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.783 for Playcare Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 2.202 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Playcare Day Nursery is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.403 , then divided by 2 = 0.202

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

My daughter has been going to this nursery for over a year and it's a big part of her life. She loves the routine, activities but mostly the fantastic staff that work there. We couldn't be happier with my daughter's emotional and social development. We would recommend this nursery to everyone.

As a working Mum, there is no better feeling than your child being left happy, safe and well cared for. The staff are brilliant and I can see from the daily communication, file feedback and parents meetings that they love what they do and take pride in my child's achievements alongside me! The personal planning for my child is brilliant and supports the things she is interested in at the time, e.g. worked hard to support her with her toileting and mixing with her peers. I am so happy I am choosing to use her funded hours here.

My twin girls have attended this nursery for a year now and we decided to choose this nursery over others as we felt immediately comfortable from the moment we walked in. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very hands on with the girls from the start.
My girls have been in the baby room and the staff in there are fantastic, this is reflected in how happy the children are all the time. My daughters can't wait to go in and see all the staff and love getting cuddles from them and have made some strong bonds.
Since my daughters have attended Playcare Nursery they have really come on in many ways, the staff have worked really hard with them encouraging them in any areas they may have been struggling with.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

Both my daughters attended the holiday club for a few weeks in the summer holidays. They both enjoyed it so much, each day they were eager to tell me all about the fun things they had been doing. All the staff were great and communication was excellent. It was lovely to see that each staff member built up a close relationship with each of them. They still talk about Playcare now!!!

The manager is understanding and takes time to speak to you if you have worries.
The baby room leader is very good at making sure the children have everything they need. Another key team member is natural with the babies and the children seem to warm to her friendly nature. I have been impressed with the feedback my son's keyworker has given me on his progress in his file. All the staff are wonderful in the baby room, they really are loving and care for the babies. Whenever I turn up, I always notice how they have children in their arms for cuddles and stories. He settled in really well at Playcare. He was never left to cry and was rocked each day at nap time till he became used to his environment, now his sleeps are for 2 hrs or more. He never comes home shattered, because he gets rest - which is great as I can spend time with him after work.
The diet is also excellent, you be amazed whats on the menu. Best nursery in the area!
