  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 41 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.873 for Poppets Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (748 Excellents x 5) + (102 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 853 Ratings = 4.873

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppets Day Nursery is based on 41 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 41 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target Reached = 1

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

9.9 Poppets Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.873)

My son attends Poppets two days a week.
Initially, he was getting upset and not wanting to stay. The staff were brilliant, engaging him in activities, he now goes into nursery with no problems at all.
My son has learned lots at Poppets and has come along lots with his speech and is much more confident with other children.

I would definitely recommend this nursery to friends and work colleagues. My nieces love going to the after school and holiday club and when they have attended they are very keen to tell me how their day has been. The staff and especially the Nursery Manager are brilliant and always on hand to deal with queries.

Thank you for the lovely review Aaron.

Poppets Day Nursery is a brilliant nursery, I have two children who attend a few days a week, one child who’s there all day and another child is there on a morning and after school. My sons love going to Poppets they enjoy all the activities they do and the staff are amazing with them. Very friendly and professional staff and I’m so happy to leave them there while I to go to work. I know my children are safe and they are learning all the time they are there. My youngest who’s there all day two days a week has come on within himself a massive amount since being there. I really do appreciate everything the girls do for my children.

Thank you Tracey for your lovely comment.

My 2 year old started a few weeks back and cried as soon as he came to the building and didn't want to go in, but the staff are amazing and this morning, he went straight in with no tears and also no kiss or goodbye for me.
He has learnt nursery rhymes which he makes us sing over again, and you can see a change in him with his speech.

Thank you for the lovely review Claire.

As a parent who went from being a stay at home mum during the day and working evenings to working 3 full days a week, I couldn't have asked for a better team than the staff at Poppets. My little girl is very nervous around people and doesn't like change so to have her put in a situation she was uncomfortable with was hard to watch as a parent, however, the staff were great and have learnt to understand the way she is and how to calm her which is something even family members struggle with sometimes. Both my children love going to Poppets, they have loads of fun and the staff are amazing with them.

I have seen significant changes in both my son's manner and learning abilities he has been going for over a year and comes home like a new happier child. I would recommend Poppets highly, all my son's needs are catered for and he has so much fun. Mixing with other children in his age range has developed him immensely. Four years ago my youngest daughter also was a part of the poppets group and I felt the same about her growth at the time also .great nursery nurses great attitudes 10/10 from me.

Thank you Ben for your review.

My daughter has attended Poppets from age 12 months (now 2 and a half), my daughter loves going, she has a really special bond with not only her key worker but the other girls that work there too. She is comfortable and happy with them which obviously makes me very happy to take her there 3 days a week. She has educationally come on quite a lot in the last couple of months learning new songs and reading different books. I would recommend this nursery to anyone and I would confidently tell them they would not be disappointed.

I have had a really hard time settling my son into nursery. The staff have been absolutely fantastic with him and help and supported both me and him throughout helping him settle, lately, we have had a breakthrough and he seems to be happy and content and going without a problem now. Both myself and my little boy are so happy with the progress.

Even though my son has been here a short while, I can see it is a great place. It is clean, well stocked with fun things to do and a lovely outdoor space. Staff are hands-on with the kids, affectionate with them and are helpful and easy to talk to for the parents. There is a good dinner menu, that caters to all kids and plenty of it. As my son has some developmental problems, they have been excellent at getting us into the right support and onto the waiting list for further investigation. Also, my son is happy to go to the nursery and can't wait each morning he is there to go, which I take as a great sign. Also, his speech has come on thanks to them and he now tells me a bit about his day, which is always fun and action-packed.

Thank you, Megan, for your lovely review.

My son struggles to settle in places and around other people and also doesn’t like to participate with other children, since starting poppets in April 2017 I have noticed a huge change in my boy, he has settled and gets excited to go to “school” (he calls it) upon pick up he tells me he has friends (melts my heart) he has also come on so much with his speech! He is getting good at counting and colours also and he tells me he loves his teachers! All my children I have 4 overall will be attending this nursery as it is great from my point of view and has been perfect for my son and his development and socially building for him too

I would like to thank all the nurses at poppets day nursery for being so kind, friendly and caring and for helping my son fit perfectly in place in poppets nursery and I look forward to see how good they are with my other children who will also be attending.

Thank you, Jessica, for your lovely review.

Poppets nursery is an excellent facility with well-trained staff. My son has been going over a year now and I have had no cause for complaint. The staff are absolutely brilliant with him even when he is reluctant to go in and I feel go above and beyond to cater to his needs. I always feel safe leaving him there knowing that he will be looked after and will have no compunction in taking my youngest son there in the new term when I start further education. Understanding, caring manager and the fees are very reasonable too. Highly recommend

My daughter has settled in really well at Poppets. It helped boost her confidence, playing with other children. I enjoy getting to go in and interact with her and see how she plays. The staff are very friendly and give great reassurance throughout her day with updates on the Tapestry app.

Poppets day nursery is excellent for my son. Since he joined in September he has built better relationships with family and learnt a lot at the nursery. He does a lot more activities at home and listens a lot more. The staff are very friendly with him and me. The facilities are excellent. There's lots to do for my son so he would never get bored.

My son goes here and both myself and my son love it! The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Since starting here my son's speech has extremely improved and he is growing up so much. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone. They even do a tapestry online for you to see what your child has been doing and keep you up to date on their progress and take pictures which I absolutely love seeing!
Love it here!

Christine Prendergast, Nurseries Manager at Poppets Day Nursery responded to this review on 17 Jul 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments, Anna.

Lovely staff, lovely environment. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery here and really enjoys going. My mind is at ease leaving my daughter here while I'm at university during the week because I know she is being cared for by a great team of ladies. When I pick up my daughter at the end of the day, she is always dry, well fed, content and stimulated. Couldn't recommend Poppet's Day Nursery any more!

Thank you for your lovely review Beth.

Since starting nursery I saw a difference in my daughter's development. Poppets have brought her on so much.

My daughter currently attends Poppets and she loves it!

When she first started, she wasn't talking as much as we had hoped but thanks to the help of Poppets she is a right little chatter box now.

The staff are always helpful and friendly. Keep me updated with her progress and how she has been doing. Great Nursery for little ones. Highly recommended!

Christine Prendergast, Nurseries Manager at Poppets Day Nursery responded to this review on 28 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your lovely review Andrew.

My daughter loves coming to 'her school' as she calls it. So did my son when he used to come.
When my daughter started, she was very stubborn where her speech was concerned. All she would do is grunt or point to what she wanted. She fully understood but refused to talk apart from 'mam' and 'dad'. Within months of being at Poppets, her speech started to improve and now she doesn't shut up! haha! Also with help from Poppets, we managed to get my daughter practically potty trained within a weekend.
The staff are amazing and have all built up a great relationship with my daughter, my daughter does have her favourite and shouts her name repeatedly that is lovely to see and hear. Any questions or concerns I have had, the manager is always on hand to help in a nice and friendly way. I wouldn't put my children in any other nursery and I am always informing other parents how good Poppets is.

Thank you for your lovely comments Samantha.

The nursery is a lovely, friendly place. My daughter enjoys coming every day. Staff are fantastic with her. They keep me informed every day about things they have done or are going to do. I as a mother trust them all 100% with my daughter. I would recommend any family to join Poppets Day Nursery.

My son enjoys going to nursery and loves all the staff also. He enjoys coming home and telling me about the things he's done throughout the day (drawing, painting, playing in the mud and bug garden) and what he's had at snack time.
I'm very happy with the nursery and think my son's confidence and progress has been a lot to do with Poppets. He will be attending until starting full-time school.

I have found this nursery very good and value for money. My son loves going and the staff are brilliant. I often receive pictures of my son through email showing the activities he's doing throughout the day and updates on the things he's learning. From starting the nursery aged 6 months old he came on leaps and bounds and continues to do so. Brilliant nursery and brilliant staff.

My child has come along with his development very well. They show me pictures of him learning on Tapestry and write a comment on it to say what he was doing and how he enjoyed it. They are a very clean environment and keep everything of his together.

My daughter has been going to Poppets Day Nursery since September 2015. She thoroughly enjoys it and loves all of the friendly staff. My daughter has developed bonds with the nursery staff especially her key worker. I have seen a significant improvement in my daughters behaviour and development and I feel that by sending her to Poppets Day Nursery it has prepared her for starting school nursery in September 2016.

I recently started working full time, I was quite nervous about the whole transition for my 2 girls as they are quite young, 4 and 2. I found the pre-starts to be a big help for both myself and the girls. The staff were so amazing and welcoming. The times for drop offs and pick ups are brilliant and work perfectly around my working hours. School pick up for my daughter was extremely important, this was no problems for the nursery, which was great. Overall the nursery is fabulous. my children are well looked after and I have seen a huge difference in their confidences and learning. 5*!!

This nursery has helped bring my son on so much. He was quite clingy before whereas now he will happily go off and play. He likes doing crafts and I've noticed that he's come home sometimes attempting to sing new songs. He seems much happier now that he has this nursery time to himself. The staff are brilliant and I have had no problem discussing things with them. They are a very friendly team and my son is very happy here.

I've been putting my 22 month year old son in Poppets for over one year now. I went to view a few day care centres before this and I was really impressed with Poppets
(Park End) all the staff are so friendly, approachable and have helped assist my son with his learning and interaction. My son enjoys his time there that much it's a struggle trying to take him home. I've recommended Poppets to friends and family who also take their children there.

I was really scared about putting my little girl in as she is very clingy and very wary of other children. The staff were great, took their time, became her friend and she settled great. She likes all the staff at the nursery.

My child really enjoys coming to Poppets. She has a really good relationship with her key person. She has grown in confidence and her talking is developing really well. She enjoys singing the good morning song and will sing it in the car on the way to nursery. The nursery manager is really supportive and gives you advice and support in anything I have asked her. Poppets is a fantastic nursery and I would recommend it to anyone.

My son's speech and language has developed a lot since attending Poppets. The staff are great and very attentive to the child's needs. There is a wide range of activities for the children to get involved in and they are encouraged to develop social skills during play. My son always likes to play outside but since going to nursery has discovered a fondness for dancing.
