Reviews

10 Jack and Jill Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 10 (9.956)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Jack and Jill Nursery Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jack and Jill Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.956 for Jack and Jill Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (285 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 298 Ratings = 4.956

  • 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 Jack and Jill Nursery Ltd is based on 11 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 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 6.2 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.

It'll be 4 years in spring since the ladies took care of our son for 3 days a week. We wouldn't be anywhere else. Home cooked food, exciting syllabus, fun activities are all set in a family home and the most important thing, love. Our son feels safe, happy and most importantly for us as mum and dad, we feel he is safe and loved. We don't need to stress at work or call at lunchtime to see how he is. If you want the best in Carlisle, there is nowhere else to go.
The added bonus is the nursery is set in a beautiful old family home in a very quiet and peaceful part of Stanwix, just north of the river.
10/10, A* or whatever the format rating is, they get it.

Thanks Ash, what a great review!
Ensuring that the children are safe and healthy are of paramount importance here, as is making sure parents are confident and comfortable in leaving their little people with us.
We're blessed with our surroundings and strive to make it as homely as possible within a nursery setting.

This nursery is brilliant, fabulous friendly staff. They help you in many ways with advice etc... My son has come on leaps and bounds since starting here. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone's child.

Thank you so much for your great review Sarah.

I will be sure to pass your fab review onto the staff.

Kind Regards

Emma
Manager

Since attending this nursery my child has really flourished. I find the staff are very nurturing and that they genuinely enjoy their work. Management are welcoming and helpful and as it is a family run nursery there is a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
She settled in quickly and is making good relationships with the staff and other babies in her room. I receive daily updates about the activities she has been involved in, her personal care and her nutrition intake, which is really useful.
I have received a development review on how my child is progressing and goals that they are helping her to work towards with advice on how we can be supporting her at home which I have been able to put into practice.

She previously attended a different nursery where she was miserable however she has had a totally different and positive experience at Jack and Jill's and really enjoys her time there. I would definitely recommend this nursery to others as they provide an excellent service.

WOW!
What a truly touching review, Thank You so much!
A lot of work goes into the development reviews and planning of activities etc to incorporate every child's individual needs, so knowing this is appreciated by our parents means the world.

She has settled in beautifully and is a true joy to have in the setting.
I will be sure to pass on your kind words and praise to the staff.

Kind Regards

Emma
Manager

Since my baby has been going to Jack and Jill Nursery her confidence and development have really come on. The staff are lovely and she has developed good bonds with them and her key worker. She takes part in a variety of creative and stimulating activities and always enjoys wholesome home-cooked meals while she is there.
She is happy and is becoming more sociable with the other babies and toddlers in her room. I would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents. The staff are professional, helpful and friendly and because it is a family run nursery there is a relaxed, homely atmosphere which helps the children to settle in quickly and puts them at ease.

Since starting the nursery our baby daughter has flourished. It’s a very friendly, welcoming place to drop her off.
The staff are always on hand to answer any questions.
The meals are home cooked and delicious.
The staff are very keen on sticking to home routines which is very reassuring for me as a parent.
We get regular updates on her development and every evening when we pick her up we get a break down of what she has done that day.

Thank you for a great review Michael and kind words on our work here within the setting.
Sticking to the children's routines is extremely important to ensure continuity for the children in transitioning from setting to home and back again.

Kind regards

Emma
Manager

Our daughter has been attending the setting since she was 6 months old.

We could not be more pleased with how she has settled in and how much she has developed in that time.

The staff are extremely welcoming and always happy to answer any questions.

It doesn’t feel like I am leaving her in a nursery setting, more like dropping her off with friends.

Leaving her in such a friendly, homely setting really took away one of the major stresses of returning to work.

All the staff and manager are always friendly and helpful, lately, the manager has been giving excellent advice regarding an issue with my grandson. The interaction between staff and children is amazing. My grandson is bursting with confidence due to the staff's patience I feel that staff continuity is important for all children and my grandson benefits from this at Jack and Jill Nursery. All the staff are very caring and warm towards the children. Educational needs are all in place and are delivered in a fun way. A welcoming and happy environment.

I will make sure I pass your compliments onto all staff.

Thank you

My son has only been coming to Jack and Jill for a couple of months but so far the care has been superb. He has settled in brilliantly which is all down to the staff creating a fun and safe environment for the children (and parents). The communication from the staff is excellent, we are kept well informed of our sons progress each week and should we have any questions/issues we are very comfortable speaking to the staff. Keep up the good work!

The short time that my son has been at this nursery, he has come on so much regarding playing with other children, making an effort to make new sounds and has become quite helpful at home.
It is always a pleasant atmosphere when my wife drops him off and same again when I pick him up. They have a great team there and for once I can't fault them at all (everywhere I go, I find faults is what I mean).
The nursery seems clean and the children never look unkempt.

Thank you for your kind words Mark.
We're thrilled to hear you feel he has come on so much since he started, and love that he has become more helpful at home too!

My daughter has loved coming to Jack and Jill every day. She always has lots to tell in the evening and always seems excited. They spend plenty of time outside and always make sure the children are appropriately dressed (hat, wellies...) As a parent, I love the advice that is given to us regarding her development. The tripod grip has worked wonders with her mark making and all the support you give us during potty training is very much appreciated. The file you keep with the advice for parents if very useful. Thank you for everything.

Thank you very much Stuart.

Thank you for embracing our Home Learning tips and pointers, the children really do excel when we all sing from the same song sheet.

It is a huge decision as a first-time parent choosing a nursery. I am so happy that my friend recommended Jack and Jill Nursery for our son. He has been attending since he was 13 months and has progressed so much socially. I have no hesitation in recommending Jack and Jill Nursery. My son loves all the home cooked meals and healthy snacks and I love the fact that due to its size, it is a real home from home and he knows all the staff really well. He also loves the range of different activities and has settled in really quickly, so much so he even said his first words there.

Hi Ros,

Thank you so much for your kind words.
Reviews like this mean the world to us.
It is a huge decision in choosing a nursery and we are thrilled you found us via word of mouth - the most trusted way there is.
Being a small and cosy setting means all staff get to know the children as individuals, not just their Key Person.
We love that he has settled beautifully and quickly became part of our little family.

Thank you once again for a lovely review.

Both of my daughters went to Jack and Jill for a combined total of 9 years and we cannot praise them enough, our girls loved every minute and their self-confidence grew no end. The management and staff are excellent and the setting provides lots of fun for the kids both inside and in the newly refurbished outdoor area. Thank you Jack and Jill Nursery.

Thank you so much for your review!

The girls are a great miss, as are both of you. It's hard when families that have been with us for so long move on. Bittersweet as it is an exciting new chapter in their lives as they move on to 'big school'

It has been an absolute pleasure to have them both.

I am extremely impressed with the service provided by Jack and Jill Nursery in Carlisle. My little girl settled in really quickly and loves attending. The staff are genuinely enthused at dealing with the little ones and the spark that they all have has a positive effect on the children.

She's settled in beautifully too.

This nursery is an absolutely outstanding nursery. I am so pleased that my son spent the first few years of his life at this nursery, the staff have helped to define him into a lovely amazing happy little boy. I couldn't recommend it enough, the staff brought my son on leaps and bounds. The communication between staff and parents is excellent, they really do go above and beyond for your child. I just love the fact that every single member of staff is fully first aid trained, it's hard to find that in nurseries nowadays. My son really has had the best possible start in life with this nursery and I had total piece of mind leaving him there every day. There wasn't actually a day that I came away unhappy and I plan to send my other child to this nursery when the time comes.

Aww - thank you for your review :)

We try our best to work as close with parents as possible to give the best possible care to your precious little ones!

Can't wait to welcome the new bundle! :)

The Nursery has gone from strength to strength during the nearly three years that we have been taking our child there. The new outside play area is excellent and is used daily, regardless of the weather to ensure the children get fresh air and additional exercise.
The regular feedback forms for us to complete are very comprehensive and allow us to help with development at home as well.
Toilet training, manners of children are very important in the setting ensuring that all the children are very polite and well behaved, pity they are not as well behaved at home as well! Our little one has learnt all about how to use computers there and is leaving us behind! Facebook page is well used and helps keep us in touch.

Wow!
Thank you so much for the review!
I don't even know where to begin! Knowing our efforts to progress the setting from strength to strength is not only recognised, but appreciated too means a lot. Outside play is an extremely important part of play for the children, as we love to embrace this for them.
As we are shaping the future generation, we feel basics such as manners is imperative.
The children are quicker than us on the ICT equipment! Once again, it's their generation and computers etc are going to be a massive part of their lives.

Thanks once again for your review!

I have 2 daughters that attend the setting, a 3-year-old and 1-year-old. My 3-year-old has gone since she was 8 months and it is a second home for her. She is very comfortable and confident there. My 1-year-old started attending a few months ago and had settled well, greeting the carers with smiles and giggles. We couldn't be happier with Jack and Jill's, The home cooked, hot meals provided are a fab mix and all the children seem to gobble them up, mine certainly do and often have seconds. Can not recommend highly enough.

The food certainly goes down a storm with them too!

Great nursery, my son has come on leaps and bounds since starting here the staff and management are great and always ensure my son is cared for. Me and my partner are always getting progression reports so we know where our son is in his learning development as well as being told from the staff how my son has got on each day he is in.

Would highly recommend this nursery.

What a lovely and homely feel this nursery has. My daughter loves going and barely even says goodbye to me anymore, she just runs in. Staff are kind and considerate. The food is cooked on the premises and is excellent quality. My daughter speaks three languages and the staff have accommodated brilliantly.

We love that she just runs in with barely a second glance, it means a lot to us that she is so comfortable and our homely setting obviously works!
We love learning all the new words for her languages too - teaching goes both ways here :)

Two of my children have attended Jack and Jill's. My daughter started primary school confidently with the skills she learned at nursery. She loved the preschool class and felt comfortable with all the staff. My son started as a baby and has spent time in both rooms. He loves it and often asks when he's going to nursery. He's got a strong connection with his keyworker and has come on so much. We will miss it when he starts primary school.

It is great to hear we played part in getting her 'school ready' and the transition went so smoothly.
The Key Person system works fantastically and knowing the children build great relationships with their Key Person is music to our ears!

An excellent nursery that offers a homely environment which is fun and caring. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and treat my child like one of their own.
Love the fact fresh home cooked food is included in the cost this is very rare.
I feel confident and at ease leaving my child at this nursery knowing she will be cared for as I would do myself.
Highly recommend!!!

Thank you so much for your review!
It's great to hear that we give parents the confidence to go to work knowing their little ones are cared for like at home. That's exactly what we're all about :)

We have both of our girls in this nursery and it is fair to say that they love it! The staff are very professional and caring, instantly gaining our trust! The care they receive and structured activities have really helped their development, their confidence grows after each visit.

Both of our children genuinely look forward to their time at Jack and Jill.

Thank you for the feedback Chris. Lovely to hear the hard work of the staff is appreciated.
Fabio to hear the girls look forward to coming, as we look forward to seeing them :)

My daughter has now left Jack and Jill's but I would definitely recommend - and have already done so! - the nursery to others. A lovely warm, friendly, welcoming environment in which you can be confident that your child is in good, caring hands.

My son has been attending this setting for almost a year. From the moment I first visited the setting I knew it was ideal for him. It's a small environment with a very homely feel to it. All the children have key workers and send reports home regularly, which makes me feel happy knowing his development is being monitored, and he is taking part in activities to help him develop his skills and knowledge. He is always excited for his days in nursery to see staff and friends. His lunches are also homemade and nutritious, would highly recommend.

I am so happy with my son's progress at Jack and Jill's - he has gained so much confidence from being in a setting that's so homely and welcoming. I don't have any worries leaving him as all the staff are fully training in various areas, and I know that he will have so much fun doing all the different activities they have both inside and out.
