  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Zipadee Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.916 for Zipadee Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (187 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 Zipadee Day Nursery Ltd is based on 13 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 11.4 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.

We can't thank Zipadees enough for all they have done through our little girl's nursery adventure. She has learnt so much since she has started, she amazes me every day with the new things she learns and we thank nursery for that! Everybody is so loving towards her and that is so amazing for us parents to see!
Thank you Zipadees!

I am very impressed with the care and education that has been given to my children, I have been using this nursery since 2011 and now have a second child which has settled into the nursery this year! They have helped me wean both my children into food, the menu is beyond what you would expect. They take extra time to say how proud they are of what my children have learnt throughout the day.
I would and have highly recommended this nursery to other parents it’s spacious, clean, really friendly staff, colourful and interesting for the kids and the playground is just unbelievable. So much to do and play with for all ages.
They also have helped to support me through times I’ve needed advice.

A fantastic nursery, I’ve not ever faulted you once.

Our daughter has been at this nursery for one day a week for the past 6 months and she loves it. She always comes home happy, clean and well fed! The staff are very friendly and my daughter is very fond of them all. In terms of communication with parents, the phone app is brilliant.
It keeps you updated with everyday events and you also get a picture through every time she is in.

My grandson loves going to nursery. The care is excellent, he comes home talking about his friends and the ladies. My grandson loves all the different activities and we look forward to seeing photos of what he has been up to on the online programme.

My daughter has attended this nursery for over 12 months and she’s come on in leaps and bounds. She’s confident and mixes well with the other children, which was a worry for me before she started nursery. The staff are so great, nothing is too much trouble they are all so caring and nurturing. I would definitely recommend, especially as they offer term time only slots.

My daughter has attended Zipadees for well over a year now and her development, progress and confidence has been wonderful to see. To know each day that she is in a loving and caring professional environment is a true testament to the nursery and its team of staff. All of whom provide a unique family warmth to me as a parent and to my daughter. I cannot praise Zipadees highly enough to anyone and I continue to be impressed by all that they do.

My two year old godson attends Zipadees and has come on leaps and bounds since starting in September 2017. I pick him up each week and he always comes out with a smile on his face chatting away about his day. They always tell me about how well he has eaten and everything he has done through the day, so I can let his mum know. He loves it that much he asks to go at the weekend.

I would highly recommend Zipadee Day Nursery to everyone. My child has been at the nursery since six months old and has moved through the nursery and now in the Pre-School preparing for school. Throughout my child's time at nursery, they have always kept me fully informed of my child's current progress and day to day activities. Every week my child brings home something new and loves to tell me about the fantastic dinners and puddings they have had. My child has made lots of friends and so have I, throughout our time being apart of the nursery. The staff are so friendly and kind and can't do enough for my child and me, for example swapping days and changing my child's times. I wanted to write this review because as my child heads off to school, we will miss them so much, but I will definitely be using their wrap around care for school and holiday club.

The staff at the nursery are amazing with my son. He loves going to nursery and is well taken care of. I have used a different nursery before and this one is miles above it. The daily log app is brilliant as we can see what he has been doing and eating etc, as well as pictures uploaded. They are flexible with the hours to suit our needs which is great.

Thank you to all the staff at Zipadee’s, in the last six years they have helped my two little ones develop and become confident in what they do, by allowing them to express themselves and encouraging them to be independent. The nursery practitioners go that extra mile to make the environment happy and welcoming for all. Both of my kids look forward to the days that they are in, and all the exciting new things they can create and learn. Keep up the good work.

My daughter started the nursery beginning of December. She has settled in brilliant and absolutely loves going. The staff are amazing, kind and caring. They are very welcoming and always happy. My daughter is very attached to the staff in the baby room. I can't thank the staff enough for what they do for my daughter. Her development is progressing everyday. My daughter absolutely loves play and doing messy play activities which they provided everyday. I would highly recommend Zipadee to anyone looking for a nursery. Your child would love it.

Zipadee Day Nursery is amazing! My two grandchildren go to the nursery and they both love it. The staff are so friendly and they really care about the children. They have both come on leaps and bounds and never want to leave because they have enjoyed their day so much. My Grandson loves to tell me about the lovely dinners they have and he likes to show me where he plays outside which is huge!
I would highly recommend the nursery to all.

I'm ashamed we didn't try Zipadee first when we had to find a new nursery in a hurry. Fortunately, our last resort had a place and turned out to be excellent. Our son has now been attending for a year, and we've been more than happy with the care, education and fun that they offer. It's important for your child to feel safe and the parent to trust the nursery setting - gladly we have both.

My youngest daughter of 14-months has been associated with Zippadee Day Nursery from 5-months of age and has always had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The high level of staff competence, knowledge and initiative truly reflects in the children's learning and development in a positive way, which is paramount at this early age.

It's abundantly clear that Zippadee Day Nursery's commitment and dedication to the well-being of the children that attend is apparent from the moment you step through the door, which is extremely reassuring. From a parents perspective and you will feel totally at ease knowing your children are in such capable hands.

I could not highly recommend this setting enough and my only advice would be to experience this nursery for yourself!

My little one goes to Zipadee Day Nursery, it's a brilliant nursery and the staff are so caring. My little boy's development has come on leaps and bounds and his achievements are excellent and that is down to the fantastic staff teaching and supporting him. He absolutely loves the amazing outdoor area as he is an energetic little one. Without Zipadee's he wouldn't be the amazing character he is today!! Highly recommended!!
