9.5 First Class Nursery Huddersfield has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.542)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for First Class Nursery Huddersfield 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for First Class Nursery Huddersfield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 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 4.756 for First Class Nursery Huddersfield is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.756

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.786 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for First Class Nursery Huddersfield is based on 11 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.786

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

My daughter is very happy at First Class. She has a good relationship with all the staff and seems to have settled in really well. Staff are very welcoming and friendly and keep us well informed. I cannot ask for anymore from the staff and I would certainly recommend first class to all other parents.

This nursery despite being a large setting and part of a larger chain feels like one big happy family. All of the staff are welcoming and friendly, regardless of whether they have immediate contact with my son or not and take an active interest in his interests and experiences. All facilities are currently bein updated to further enrich the high standard of provision already available. Despite being in the baby room my son experiences a wide range of exciting activities also available to older children and thoroughly enjoys his days here.

My child is very happy at this nursery and loves all staff and loves doing all the activities, which are varied. Staff always inform me about my child's development, talent or interests. I can also check my child's development through the parent zone. Staff also posts pictures on Facebook almost daily, so that I am in touch with my child during the day - eg. I can check what he's been doing during my lunch break at work which is amazing.

The nursery also works with a university student and we have agreed to participate in her study. Our child gets some extra attention thanks to that. The only thing I don't like is the nursery putting up posters instead of face-to-face communication with the parents (eg. late arrivals result in penalties ) and when staff don't take my child's jumper off for an afternoon nap.

I would definitely recommend this nursery. The staff are welcoming any issue gets dealt with quickly even though there hardly have been any. My eldest attended and now my youngest is at the nursery but I'll be sad when he leaves, it's like our second home haha. Well done Birkbees you all should be proud of yourselves.

Both my girls have attended First Class Nursery Huddersfield. My youngest daughter currently attends -she is 17 months and joined at 9 months. I've never had a single problem, there are 3/4 ladies that work in my daughter's room. Staff turnover is very low and a lot have been there for years. My daughter loves to go there and is well fed and looked after. The staff deserve lots of praise and recognition. The nursery is well managed and billing etc efficient. The owners are improving the building all the time. Would not hesitate to recommend - my two sisters babies will be there soon too ??

My son attended nursery when he was a 1 year old baby. He really likes it. All staff are so nice and competent. Children have a lot of activities. He is 2,5 now and still at the same nursery. Sometimes he doesn't want to go home. In the summer I will send my daughter to the same place.

Our daughter has attended this nursery since she was 7months. We looked into various nurseries and chose First Class Nursery. We have been more than happy with the care she has received. She is settled and always happy. I love how they add things to Facebook as the day goes on and I can then see what she has been doing whilst at work. Our daughter loves being outdoors and she is always outdoors and doing activities that are exciting and linked to her interests. We could not recommend the nursery highly enough.

I have had the pleasure of the staff at First Class Nursery providing care to my two children over the last four years and that care has been nothing short of excellent! They are friendly, caring and have helped my children in their growth and development. They have always been on hand to offer support.

My eldest daughter has attended First Class Nursery Huddersfield since September 2013 and my youngest daughter started May 2016. My daughters love going to nursery. The activities provided are varied, fun and a good basis for their early education. Detailed feedback is given about their day. Provision for the children is excellent, the nursery is bright and colourful and there are lots of varied equipment which is accessible all the time. Outdoor provision is superb. My eldest daughter loves playing outside on the climbing frame. the staff are very friendly and make the whole family welcome. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

My daughter attends the preschool here, she loves the vast selection of activities on offer from Forest School to food for life cooking, baking, she enjoys the woodwork area, sensory garden and water activities. She loves all the staff in the nursery which are of a range of ages, ethnic backgrounds and long term members of staff offering stability, continuity and low staff turnover. I love that the staff plan for my daughter's individual needs following her interest and taking on board things that she likes at home. Staff know exactly where her learning is at and plan around her areas for development.

I chose to put my little one into a nursery when she was 2. She went one day per week until she was 3. She really enjoys her time at First Class and the staff look after her as well as I could. The level of staff is fab and she has come on no end in the last 2 years. She will be leaving the setting in September and she will miss the staff and her friends. I feel that she has been well cared for and would highly recommend to anyone.
