Reviews

9.8 Playtime Nursery - Staines upon Thames has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.789)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Playtime Nursery - Staines upon Thames 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 79 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Playtime Nursery - Staines upon Thames in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.789 for Playtime Nursery - Staines upon Thames is calculated as follows: ( (769 Excellents x 5) + (156 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 946 Ratings = 4.789

  • 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 Playtime Nursery - Staines upon Thames is based on 24 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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.

We have been at Staines for over a year now and we are really happy that the managers are getting better and better. The location is good and the key for me is that the place is spotless and the food is always good and healthy. Considering the luxury location of this nursery, the prices are pretty keen too. There was an increase some months ago but it was minimal and for what you get, it was well worth that little bit extra...

We've been to Playtimes twice now due to moving away and coming back. We like the friendly atmosphere at playtime and the wide open spaces of the rooms. You can tell that the management takes pride in the cleanliness of the nursery by the turnout of the manager and staff. The outside space is easily the best of all the local nurseries and we even tried tester days at others when we came back. The venue is excellent and I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is unsure or any new parents (we know it's difficult to choose!).

I'm very happy with the nursery.

A very good nursery in every aspect. Always kept up to date with what is going on. Staff and management very friendly and always willing to help with any queries. My son is learning new things everytime he is at the nursery which I am very pleased with. He is more confident in himself and seems to enjoy himself at the nursery which is a good sign. Have not got a negative thing to say.

My son has been attending for little over a year. He really enjoys attending and has built up a great relationship with staff at the nursery (who are also extremely professional, friendly and always willing to discuss/share the day's activities with us when we collect him). They have a great variety of activities and structure in their play.

My son loves coming to Playtime Staines. The girls are fantastic, they really do a great job and you can see they love the children. My son loves the activities and always comes home with a picture or craft piece to show us. The food is great, my son eats it all. I have no worries when I drop him off as I know he is in safe hands and is going to have a fun and educational day. I would recommend Playtime Staines to every mum or dad.

My daughter has been attending Playtime Staines since she was five months old and absolutely loves her time there. She is in the Little Gems room, and the team in there have been absolutely fantastic since the start. She is now nearly a year old and has gone from strength to strength in her social development since joining the nursery. The staff, particularly in Little Gems, have been accommodating, enthusiastic and extremely helpful with any issues she may have had during her time at the nursery, and I have always been well informed and updated on my child's daily activities. I have recommended the nursery to many of my friends looking for a suitable nursery and will continue to do so.

Always find the girls are very friendly and they always know exactly what my son has been doing/eating. I think it's brilliant that they are learning about more in depth things for their age such as planets. The food is disappointing for the price but that is something I have already discussed with the manager. My son always loves going to nursery and has a good relationship with everyone at the nursery so I'm more than happy with him being there. All round a good nursery and I would recommend.

My son has been attending Playtime Staines for almost a year now and he loves it.
The staff are fabulous and so caring towards him, it's reassuring to know that they are supporting your child and helping them have fun whilst learning. They've also been very supportive to me as a parent.
We get regular updates on his progress and other goings on in the nursery which makes us feel in the loop and reassured.
The facilities and activities are brilliant! I love seeing how creative the staff are with the little ones.
My little boy is learning so much and it's a joy to see how nursery life helps. He loves it and the staff so much that some days he doesn't want to leave!
It's a fab nursery - can't fault it!

Our children are 1 and 3 and are placed in separate ages groups, however, there are no restrictions in place that stop our children from interacting together or even joining other groups. For example, our 1-year-old Son has had the freedom to explore other groups and interact with older children, something I feel is beneficial to building his character and learning.

The children enjoy going to nursery and our Daughter likes to describe her "teachers" as her best friends. When we suggest to her that her room leaders would be proud of her for eating her dinner she immediately does so, so there is obviously a level of trust and respect that has been built between the room leaders and the children.

All of the staff are polite and careful and we are starting to receive regular update reports on what the kids have been up to, what they are learning and how they are progressing.

My daughter fully enjoys her time at the nursery and is thriving in her learning and development. The staff are very friendly and helpful and cater to her needs, such as her wanting to wave us goodbye out the window when we drop her off. This is really comforting to her and allows her to settle the for the rest of the day.

Our son was 9 months old when he first went to Shepperton playtime, but due to a need to move closer to my work, we moved him to Staines. He attends 3 full days a week and has 3 freshly prepared meals a day (plus snacks in between) so we don't have to worry in the evenings.

The staff at both branches have always been caring and attentive to his every need. They have helped us out when we needed emergency childcare. Our son has developed so quickly in the 3 months he's been going, from crawling to walking to now engaging in drawing and playing with other kids. I am confident that when I drop him in the morning, seeing him smile at the staff greeting him, he will be just fine and I can go to work with confidence that he is well looked after. For a busy new working mum, this helps diminish the natural guilt that comes with the territory. Thank you Playtime.

The staff at Playtime Nursery are fantastic. They ensure that I as a parent feel secure that my child is safe and well looked after. Not only have they aided with my son's potty training, they have brought him out of his shell around other children his own age and his overall general confidence has increased as a result.

If I have any concerns, I am able to ring their landline for updates about his behaviour and social integration which is an excellent way to reassure me as a parent that my child is safe and having fun.

Overall, I cannot fault the staff or the facility and have recommended to all of my friends and family.

My son has been going to Staines playtime for the last 4 months and we are highly impressed by the staff's attitude and caring nature towards my son. I feel fully confident to leave my him there and also, I've seen a huge difference in his development and language in the space of 4 months. Loads of fun activities for my son to enjoy at Staines Playtime and there are weekly newsletters and updates which are great for parents.

My Son loves going to the nursery. He is learning a lot from the nursery. Loves the toys and his friends.

The only downside in last the few months was there was a lot of changes in staff, which will impact the child as it takes time to build a good relationship and with the change in staff, it becomes harder for the kids to adjust. Hence I feel the Management should do more to retain good staff.

Also a bit more emphasis on cleanliness especially in the kid's toilets.

When returning to work, my 10 month old joined daytime. The whole team made my daughter feel at ease with this transition - they were just fantastic!
Now after a year at playtime, my daughter absolutely loves it - she is always happy when I pick her up - eats well - sleeps well and the workers show her such care and love. It really is such a pleasure to have them looking after her. During the parents evening, the girls are very professional and show such compassion for their work.
We receive weekly newsletter which is great to know what's coming up and electronic updates on what they have been up to that day.
When my daughter has been unwell, they have always followed procedure and always kept me updated throughout the day. I can honestly say I have 100% confidence in the playtime team and would like to thank them for giving my daughter such a great 1st year in nursery.
I'd also like to say a special thank you to the amazing Little Gems room leader! Keep up the amazing work you do!

This is generally a nice nursery and I think the staff there do the best they can. However, in the 1.5 years my son has been going there, the manager changed four times! With each managerial change, many of the other staff leave. There have been several mornings in the past couple of months where there was nobody in the Preschool room to accept my son when we dropped him off. His favourite carer left because bizarrely, she was not offered lower hours, even though her leaving left the nursery clearly extremely understaffed.
The situation has improved somewhat after an excellent worker was employed again full-time in November and a younger member of staff has been moved from baby to preschool room.
The weekly newsletters are clearly well-meant but contain religious content, which personally, I find offensive. The newly implemented system 2Build a Profile is also clearly well-meant but the updates are on such a basic level that they can hardly be called informative.

I had no doubts after visiting playtime nursery that my daughter would settle in and enjoy her time at pre-school, the staff are welcoming and always on hand to answer any questions, they are sympathetic to individual child's needs and treat the children as if they are there own, I can see her self confidence and independence growing daily and that is due to the dedication of the staff here at playtime.

My Granddaughter attends Playtime Nursery.
When I see her on Saturday I always get given some art work that she has done.
I have picked her up from nursery a few times, when every I have turned up, she is always playing and engaged with a group of children.
All the children seem to be happily playing at the nursery. The staff always talk to me and tell me how her day has been and how much she has eaten.

My daughter attends Playtime. She took a long time to settle into the setting but her key-worker worked really well with her and now she loves going to nursery. At the weekend she asks if it is a nursery day.
She has a group of friends which she talks about all the time. She eats really well at nursery and she always tells me that her food was yummy.

My little brother goes to the nursery. He always brings me back picture that he has drawn for me.
If I ever go to pick him up, he always wants to show me what he is playing with which is normally the cars and trains.
He tells me all the names of his friend and he has to give them all a hug before we go. It takes a long time to get him out of nursery.

My child has attended the nursery since September 2015 and we have been extremely happy with the care they have received. The staff made us feel very welcome and set a lot of our concerns at leaving our child for the first time at ease. They took the time to get to know him and meet his individual needs. My son has learnt so much already since being at the nursery and really enjoys attending and is keen to tell us about his day. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and we're confident in leaving him in their care.
We receive great feedback at the end of the day and the staff are always happy to answer any questions we may have. The children are always taking part in fun activities and we fell involved as parents in his learning.
This is a great nursery and would highly recommend it.

I have to say before visiting this nursery I was a bit worried about sending my child to this nursery. However, the manager put me at ease and she was very kind and knowledgeable. My child took a liking to her straight away and didn't want to leave. All the nursery staff are happy and friendly and give great feedback at the end of the day, so I know what my child has been up to. I would recommend this nursery to my friends and family as am very happy with the care and support.

Hi all,

Our little son started at playtime back in Nov 15 and we wanted to express how happy we are with this nursery, he keeps asking if we are going at the weekends to which shows how much he enjoys it all.

Keep up the great work.

She is always talking about the manger. So special mention to her for being so great with the kids. All the kids love you .

It is really professionally run and I know that my niece is getting so much out of being here.

Thank you

My child has been going to this nursery over a year now and she absolutely loves going there as she has good friends there and loves the staff. Playtime staff is absolutely fantastic and caring. They really focus on child development and keep parents regularly updated. The occasional picture sent by email of my child doing her daily activities always brightens up my day and as its always great to see she is having lots of fun there. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nursery as they definitely live by their moto "watch them shine brighter every day."

I cannot recommend Playtime Staines enough. From the very first day We dropped our son off, myself and my husband felt at ease. There's constant communication and emails you receive with photos of your child enjoying their day and when you're a working parent it's lovely to receive these during the day and see how much they're enjoying themselves. It's reassurance and makes you feel less guilty knowing that you can't always be there as you know what fun they're having and skills they're learning and interaction with other children. You receive a daily sheet with what they've eaten that day and the activities they've done. There's parents evenings that show progress for your child in their books.

I did a lot of research into nurseries and this nursery came out on top for us and from word of mouth from other parents.

My daughter has been coming to this nursery since she was a one year old.
She was a very unsociable child outside of the house, due to the hard work of the staff, they have helped in bringing the more confident side of her personality out, and now two years on I wouldn't want to send her anywhere else.
Thank you playtime Staines.

I have been a parent at Playtime for nearly 6 months now and my experience with how the staff look after my child is 100% perfect. I would happily recommend Playtime to any parent. The Manager has been very accommodating in regards to flexi shift patterns in the area and I know that this was a struggle for me when finding childcare. I like that we get emailed pictures each day to see how he is getting on, and I also like the one to one feedback each day when I collect. I am a parent that collect at 6pm and I never get rushed out of the door, the girls have always got time. The main thing is he is happy and I know this from the excitement we get when I drive into the car park.

Every morning when I drop my daughter off, I am totally confident she will have a great day in Playtime Nursery. Care is just excellent and staff really make a difference, the girls really listen to all the feedback and take on board all the information you've got to tell them about your child.
Parents can be assured that their baby's specific needs are met, also all the creative play which they do daily is excellent. This is such hard work with the babies running around but the girls always have a smile on their faces and it really impacts on the babies who are happy too. Management of the nursery is very good too with all the important information coming through emails and leaflets. All in all I am very happy we chose this nursery for our daughter. Thank you Playtime!

My daughter joined playtime Staines nursery 3 months ago. Previously she was in a care of local child minder and she used to cry every morning. With playtime nursery, The registration process went very smooth. The manager of nursery made this whole transition very smooth she offered us free ramp up sessions. She was very flexible with schedule of ramp up sessions. I always found her very supportive, helpful and clear in her dealings with parents, e.g. she applied joining discounts on our registration by herself something which were never asked for.

Few days after the settle in period my daughter absolutely loves this nursery. No more tears in the morning. She adore the staff. Each and every member of staff is a gem. It's very clear that they are very passionate of their job and their love and care for children is evident. My daughter mentions their name at home. Even sometimes over the weekend she mentions that she wants to go to nursery. We are very satisfied with her learning and every aspect of this nursery is awesome. They have an excellent Ofsted rating. Highly recommended!
