Reviews

9.2 Kids 1st Low Fell has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.242)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Kids 1st Low Fell is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 1st Low Fell in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 6 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 4.964 for Kids 1st Low Fell is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 4.278 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 1st Low Fell is based on 6 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). 6 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.278

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

Our daughter has been attending Kids 1st for 18 months and we have been extremely happy with the care she has received. The staff are all lovely and I know my daughter is in the safest possible hands. The facilities are excellent and the activities fun and varied with lots of outdoor play. Would highly recommend.

I cannot recommend kids 1st Low Fell enough, my daughter started in the baby unit in January and she loves it! The staff are amazing and clearly know the children inside out. It's lovely to hear that my little monkey is as happy at nursery as she is at home.
When my daughter started nursery I was a bit apprehensive, but the staff were all really supportive and nothing is too much trouble and as a first-time mum, this is just what I needed!
The meals are all homemade by an onsite chef who caters for children with additional dietary requirements which is great.
Each of the 7 rooms in the nursery has access to fab outdoor areas which is great.
If you are looking for a nursery for your little one then look no further in my opinion Kids 1st is the best!

Kids 1st Low Fell is fantastic and I would highly recommend. The staff are always caring and have the best interests of my son at heart.
My son has so much fun doing all of the activities. The food is great and the menu very varied.
Recently, the staff have been so accommodating fitting in extra care when my mother had an accident and was unable to undertake regular childcare for us - nothing is ever too much trouble at Kids 1st Low Feel.

The staff at this nursery have been nothing but supportive as my little girl has progressed from the baby rooms to the pre school rooms. She has loved every room and formed food relationships with the staff. Her little brother is going to start in the baby rooms soon and I'm positive he will enjoy it too.
