Reviews

6.5 Kiddieshack Private Nursery has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.512)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Kiddieshack Private Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kiddieshack Private Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.583 for Kiddieshack Private Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 1.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kiddieshack Private Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.357 , then divided by 2 = 0.179

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

Reviewer Connection to Kiddieshack Private Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    3

The nursery is currently undergoing review of it's outside facilities and resources for the children. Staff have ideas which are obtainable, they endeavour to work towards the best needs and requirements for the children, however, more parental support is required for them to achieve these goals and to maintain them. The children's learning processes are sustained and maintained to the highest levels and the children are encouraged to explore their environment within and out with the nursery. I can only speak for my child, who has thrived in the environment created by the Manager and her Team in all areas. The nursery is a safe environment where my daughter has developed, grown and learned about many things and I am sure it has instilled in her the value of a smaller family, even although, it's not directly yours, but you are included as if you were one of the team's own.

Well done Kiddieshack!!! Keep up the fabulous work that you do.

I would highly recommend this nursery. I find that all staff are knowledgeable, friendly and have genuine interest in ensuring my daughter has good learning opportunities and experiences at nursery. The nursery teacher works in partnership with us as a family in line with my daughters development at home and echos this at nursery an vice versa. Since my baby girl has gone to nursery I have noticed a big change around her eating an drinking, learning how to engage with other kids sociably through play. I notice her communication skills developing really well, use of some words, pointing to things that she wants etc. As a first time mummy I have gained confidence through the nursery assisting me to try new things at home enabling my confidence to grow and enabling my daughter to continually have opportunities to develop at home and at nursery.

My child has been at the nursery for 4 years, she thoroughly enjoys it and loves all the staff. They are a great team. They are always learning something new and different.
The staff are always friendly and very attentive to the children. They always do a number of activities and its great to hear what they have done each day.
It's great to see the children's work on display in the rooms and to see what topics they are learning about.
The garden and the nursery is great and my daughter really enjoy it, she speaks about the equipment they play on i.e pirate ship & trikes and games/experiments they do.
