Reviews

8 Club 4 Kids Childcare has a Review Score of 8 (7.950)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Club 4 Kids Childcare is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Club 4 Kids Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.879 for Club 4 Kids Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (237 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.879

  • 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 3.071 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Club 4 Kids Childcare is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.071

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

Since our daughter joined the nursery in July 2014 we have been impressed with the high-quality care and love she has received. We are always kept well informed and invited to stay and play sessions. Alongside everyday activities, we have seen the positive impact that trips outside the nursery has had on our daughter. She always says she has had a good day and tells us about what she has been up to. I am sure this nursery has helped our daughter progress in her language and physical abilities. She has made many friends, we would like to highly praise the staff here. Thank you.

My kids love coming to Club 4 kids, my eldest has attended the holiday playscheme for about 5 years and loves it. My youngest has been in bumblebees since he was 9 months old, he settled really well and now 15 months on he still loves going to 'school' as he calls it. All the staff are lovely and friendly I feel at ease leaving my children with them. Thank you Club 4 kids for helping my boys grow, and always trying to help me when my circumstances have changed.

My little boy started one morning a week in 'The Bumblebees Room' about 4 months ago. He absolutely loves going and is always full of smiles. He settled in straight away and loves it so much I have extended to a full day and one more morning.
It's really nice to be given a mini report when I pick him up which details what he has eaten, played with, how he has slept and nappy changes. I often find he eats more as all the children sit around the table together.
The staff are just amazing, they are welcoming, accommodating and caring.
The garden has just been renovated with lots of colour and exciting features and there is always a variety of toys/activities set up within the rooms.

My daughter was unsure when she first started here but was the first time she had been so was fair enough, the staff settled her in very quickly and she absolutely loves coming here. She has a brilliant bond with her key worker and I am so happy we managed to get a place for her at Club4kids.

I adore this nursery, the staff are amazing. My son is well looked after and has access to a variety of learning things as well lots of fun play. He's always clean and happy. The staff take the time to get to get to know my son and how to read his cues. I recommend the nursery all the time as my son as well as myself are more than happy with his care.

My older boys also use the after school club and often ask when they can go back. I feel this nursery has given my child the social and learning skills he will need when he goes to big school and are an endless support. The outside space is awesome and interactive. The staff are very personable, approachable and incredibly professional. When I drop my son off at nursery I know he is in good hands. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic nursery, the girls are amazing, have really helped my daughter settle in and have gone above and beyond to make sure she is ok. I always highly recommend them to friends. They always keep me reassured that she is ok too, you can have as much or as little feedback as you would like and the management are always there to listen to you

Both my children have attended this nursery, I couldn't be happier with the care my children received. The personal touch goes a long way. There is always someone to talk to about problems or questions, everyone is very friendly and accommodating. My youngest comes out having learnt something new each time she attends. The staff put me at ease knowing she is safe and well looked after, as she is very clingy to me and often gets upset when I drop her off. They are excellent at settling her which makes it easier for me. The management and staff are passionate and dedicated which really shines through.

Both of my girls attend this nursery, one in the baby room and the other in the nursery, as did my son before he went to school. All three children were/are always happy both when going to nursery and coming home. The girls enjoy their time at nursery and have made lots of friends. The staff are always on hand to answer any questions and are very welcoming and friendly, the children have a good relationship with all members of staff. The setting is always clean and staff are very good with all aspects of safety and security and do everything with the child's best interests. I would highly recommend.

I have two children attend Club 4 Kids for breakfast club, nursery, after school clubs and holiday play schemes.
Very helpful for working parents due to wrap around care. All staff are lovely and my 2-year old can name all members of the extended team from their photos on the newsletters. The management team are fantastic and approachable.
The setting is safe and the management has a strong system for accounting for all children.
Both children enjoy their time at Club 4 Kids and have made many friends during their time there.

The staff are excellent, my son has come on so much since he started there (nearly 2 years ago form baby room to now in the older room)

He can already count to 10 (before the age of 3) and his speech and behaviour has progressed immensely and the staff have been really helpful with potty training.

I couldn't recommend this nursery anymore.

The nursery and all staff are brilliant. They have recently done up their garden for which my son loves! It's hard to get him home each day he's there. The nursery is really clean and have so many toys and activities/messy play going on. All this and very reasonably priced.

Having been unable to get a place at the school club, we completely panicked! But having contacted Club 4 Kids they were absolutely brilliant. They offered a range if days/times with availability. The children have been attending Club 4 Kids for over a year now and they love it. There is always plenty for them to do, so they are never bored. The holiday play schemes are great too with lots of excursions. Lastly, the security is the best I've seen in a childcare setting. There is no chance of a child escaping unnoticed!

This is an amazing nursery all the staff members are fantastic, friendly and so welcoming and they gave me the confidence to be able to leave my daughter in some one else's care. My daughter has been attending since September 2013 she loves going and most days does not want to leave. She has learnt so much at this setting and adores her key worker along with the other staff members. We couldn't ask for any thing better for our daughter.

My son started here in September 2016, 1 month later and he is already saying words, he wasn't saying a thing when he began! He seems more sociable and happy. My eldest son also went here and he is now in year 2. He always loved nursery and still mentions it now. Excellent place, would recommend.
