Kids Planet Prestwich was rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2015, for the third consecutive time and not only provides the highest standard of nursery childcare and education but also a unique environment in which children are actively encouraged to explore, learn and to interact with others.

The nursery is purpose-built and has beautiful open plan rooms, secure outdoor play areas and also a separate roof terrace playground for pre-school children. The focus is on a stimulating environment where children can learn through play, with a separate approach for the different age groups.

Carers look to work in partnership with parents, tailoring services to suit any specific needs they or their children might have. Individual development is crucial and staff prepare children for the new challenges they will experience when they start school.

Reviews

8.8 Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.847)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 4 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 4.938 for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.938

  • 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 3.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 25.2 positive Reviews (126 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 25.2 Target = 0.159

  • 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 just turned 1 and has attended for the past 4 months. We were unsure as to where to send her, thought Kids Planet would be too 'big' for her in terms of numbers of children and her young age, however, we were wrong. The manager knows the name of every child and the whole place has a great feel. Our daughter loves the staff members and they have a great understanding of her developing personality and what she likes to do, and really help her thrive. At present, we do not get a great deal of insight as to what goes on during her day other than a briefly written sheet, however they are bringing in an online access interface and my understanding is we can view pictures and get updates throughout the day by logging into our account.

Choosing childcare when you return to work is tough, but I would definitely recommend considering this place. I can see why it received an Outstanding from Ofsted and for our highly sociable 1-year-old, it was absolutely what she needed.

Our daughter has been at Kids Planet since she was ten months old. She is now approaching pre-school. At every stage, we have found the staff to be caring, proactive and committed to providing our child with the best possible environment. They always treat her as an individual, move at her pace and have been happy to adapt to her needs - for example, separating different food groups on her plate when she was going through a fussy eating phase and then helping her to move back to mixed foods again. They genuinely like the children in their care. It is one of the more expensive nurseries in our area but we often think about how glad we are that we chose this nursery.

Our journey with Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich started in 2013 with my daughter and ends next week with my son. Both my kids have loved their time at Kids Planet and I couldn't recommend it more. The staff have been amazing regarding my son's asthma and allergies and I am confident he will be cared for should he need his medication in nursery. My shy reserved baby is leaving as a confident chatty boy thanks to his amazing teachers!

Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich is a safe, happy and educational environment for our little boy. We have had our son placed there for the last 14 months, on a full-time basis, starting in the Baby Room and now into Tots. We couldn't be happier with the care and attention that our son has had from the staff at Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Prestwich; his development has been outstanding and we are grateful for the parenting role that all the staff adopt with our son, whilst we are at work. They have a loving, friendly and conscientious approach to their work in learning and play and our son thinks of all the staff that work with him as his extended family. He enjoys attending nursery and we drop our son off in the morning confident that he will enjoy his day and be looked after to the highest standard. Thank you, from Dad and Mum x
