Reviews

9.1 Kids 1st Wynyard has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.094)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Kids 1st Wynyard 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 1st Wynyard in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.863 for Kids 1st Wynyard is calculated as follows: ( (207 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.863

  • 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 4.231 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 1st Wynyard 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.231

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

I cannot speak highly enough of Kids 1st Nursery in Wynyard. My son started in May and thanks to the girls in Starfish 2 we have both settled into our new routine - great. They cannot do enough for my son and I would not think twice to recommend them!
My son has come on amazing in the 2 months he has been going, getting involved in so many different activities, I cannot wait to see what's to come!

After viewing many other nurseries, Kids 1st stood out as by far the best and made me feel completely at ease about going back to work. My daughter immediately bonded with the staff who were great with her, she has developed in so many ways since joining and looks forward to going into nursery. The daily diaries keep you well informed for daily handovers and the regular parents evenings keep you up to date with day to day progress, recommendations for advancing this and lots of photographs from the wide range of activities they get involved in. Overall I have been very happy with the first year.

My eldest attended this nursery for over 2 years but my youngest started much younger at 9 months old. Although I was very happy with my past experience, I was very anxious about my baby starting but the staff couldn't have been more caring or experienced in handling my baby and me! After only three months, my baby goes immediately to the staff in the baby room and even waves me off (something my eldest never did). I sometimes watch through the window before I go in and I see her delight at exploring, the genuine care from the staff and a happy baby. I have now seen this nursery at all levels/ages and everything from food to the toys/experiences offered is very good. The dedication is obvious and the fact the staff recall, welcome and ask about my eldest shows their interest and how personal the service is.

My son started nursery around 3 months ago. Since the first time I viewed the nursery all the staff I came into contact with were very welcoming. The nursery itself has a lovely feel to it from the minute you walk in the door.
My little boy had a bit of a struggle with settling in which made it quite hard for both me and him. But the staff were all so kind and caring about it and made it so much easier for us both. He now loves going to nursery and loves to tell everyone about his friends and the staff "the girls" as he likes to call them.

My son started at Kids 1st Wynyard when he was 22 months old - a difficult time to start nursery - due to a change in our circumstances. From initial contact, all the way to the present day, every member of staff has been friendly and accommodating. They have helped my son settle into being away from family and made it an easy transition. He has grown his social skills and is learning all the time.

I feel Kids 1st has helped me enormously whilst settling my child. One member of staff has helped me to feel at ease about leaving her. I believe she has gone above and beyond her job role. Everybody is friendly and I would definitely recommend.

This nursery is simply the best! having to leave you baby to go to work is a massive transition, but the staff are amazing they support you through out. I Couldn't wish for better care for my baby. I can go to work knowing that she is well looked after and her ever growing needs are met. My little girl has settled beautifully here. My eldest daughter came here 3 years ago so when we found out we were expecting again there was no doubt where we would take her to nursery.

We have been visiting Kids 1st Wynyard for 8 years, it is an outstanding nursery, led by an extremely caring, professional and hard working manager. The children are always loved and well cared for and we feel this is the most important aspect, particularly in the baby room.
Behaviour and good manners are taught from a very young age and this is evident throughout the nursery. The children thrive and are happy and the senior staff go out of their way to support and care for each child to the best of their ability.

Excellent nursery, my grandson loves it. Staff are all very committed and focused on the wellbeing of each child. No hesitation in recommending to anyone looking for a first class nursery. Food very good the only questionable dish was salmon curry which my grandson definitely didn't like but usually eats everything else.

Our son has been at Kids 1st since he was 6 months old and he is now two. We have always had complete trust in the staff and have been fully confident that he has been well looked after in their care. Each time he is in nursery he is excited to visit and is happy when he comes home. We love the range of healthy and tasty food that he eats (some of which we would never be able to get him to try at home) and the variety of activities he takes part in is great. Overall fantastic service with wonderful staff.

My son has been attending kid's 1st Wynyard since he was 10 months old, we knew straight away this was the nursery for us after view many other nurseries this one was in a different league even if it is a 40 minute detour from our home it is well worth the journey.
My Son loves going to nursery and has become attached to his key person in every room straight away, every single member of staff is always very welcoming and friendly.
Tracey the manager is fantastic, she knows every single child's name and is very approachable.
I would recommend this nursery to everyone and i feel very comfortable knowing my son is safe and happy.

My son absolutely loves nursery! His key worker is amazing. All of the staff always take the time to talk to you and make sure you're up to date with what my son has been doing. He's come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery. He's so relaxed when he's there and has learnt to interact with staff and the other children.
