Reviews

9.8 Selston Childcare has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.826)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Selston Childcare 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Selston Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.826 for Selston Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (141 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.826

  • 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 Selston Childcare is based on 7 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 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 5.2 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.

My son started here in January of this year and loves it, he has made plenty of friends and it has really brought him out of himself and his speech has come on so much. The staff are very friendly and helpful, he loves going and enjoys playing there and getting involved with the other children and staff.
My daughter also came here, I would highly recommend this preschool, he stays for his dinner and loves the special dinners they do themselves every so often.

Teresa Simpson, manager at Selston Childcare responded to this review on 27 Apr 2017:

Thank You, Tina, We are so pleased that you persevered leaving your son with us to ensure he settled eventually, which took him a quiet a long time. We understand this can be very hard for some parents to do, but with support from parents listening to us, we always get there in the end. We cannot believe the difference in him now, he's such a happy little boy.

My son has attended Selston childcare for over a year and he's been settled and made a few friends. The ladies, as he calls them, are always lovely with him, given him cuddles when needed. The staff have been really good with my shift patterns and have worked around my hours without a problem. I haven't had one issue with the care in the slightest. They promoted the toilet training and have helped with the transition to foundation 1. Would definitely recommend.

My son loves attending Selston Childcare and has been very comfortable there from day 1. He loves the ladies who work there and feels loved and looked after in their care. I had to make a very difficult decision when it came to childcare and I feel that the staff supported me throughout and made me feel comfortable and at ease with the transition for him to move. He has completed lots of lovely activities and particularly enjoys singing and playing outdoors. I feel that the staff have supported me during toilet training and encourage all of the things that I feel are important such as good manners, healthy eating and table manners. Pre-school definitely helped to ensure my child was ready for nursery and they continue to provide excellent wrap around care for him. I am never worried about him when I know he is there.

I'm very happy my son attended before he started nursery and now my daughter attends. The staff are brilliant, kind and thoughtful, my daughter who attends now didn't like me leaving her at first, they got her settled and then would message me so I wasn't worried, now she runs in. They really get to know your child and they have helped me with potty training. Also, both of my children have learnt so much from this Pre-school and love the teachers/staff. I couldn't ask for a better place for them to learn.

I'm very pleased with the staff at my son's preschool. He absolutely loves going, he's always excited to tell me what he's been doing in the day. It's very organised and all members of staff are very welcoming and kind.

Teresa Simpson, manager at Selston Childcare responded to this review on 08 Mar 2017:

Thank you, Belinda, for taking the time to review us. Your son has made lots of new friends here, who are happy to see him. This has helped him to build and bond with his peer group, and not rely so much on his big brother for play but they enjoy meeting up and sitting together at our lunch club. You always throw yourself into our fundraising and events, we love to see what dressing up costumes you're going to send them in next.

Extremely happy with the nursery. Great staff are very caring. Very nurturing to the children. Great activities. Great snacks and lunch menu. My daughter loves going.

Our Grandson of 2 years old has been attending this playschool since January and we have been extremely happy with the skill and great treatment of our little boy. He`s so happy while he`s there and the activities provided are second to none. The staff are very knowledgeable and take great personal care to have close and happy contact.

Thank you, Lynn. We love to welcome and encourage all family members to be part of nursery life here and to listen to your views to help us improve.

The staff are fantastic. They help with my son's speech. He has come on leaps and bounds since going to preschool as he was not talking a lot before he went. He loves interacting with other children which is great for his development. I would be lost without this fantastic team. My son really enjoys going.

Teresa Simpson, manager at Selston Childcare responded to this review on 17 Aug 2016:

Thank you, The team have become very fond of your son, slow progress with his speech development but he has come a long way from his starting point, he enjoys the listening group times which has helped him improve his communication and personal, social and emotional skills. We are very proud of him, He always has to say Bye bye to every member of staff when he leaves each day.

The staff are friendly, helpful and caring towards my child. They have attended extra training to gain knowledge to cope with her special needs and disability. They treat her with respect and show her how to do the activities provided. The staff are very patient and have lots of ideas to keep her happy and part of the group. My child loves to attend each day. She has grown and developed in all areas thanks to the staff hard work and dedication.

My daughter started here this year and was very nervous to be without me and to be with other children and new people. She absolutely loves coming here after settling in. Shes now learning sign language and socialising with other children brilliantly. I would recommend Selston Childcare to everyone looking to put their child into day nursery. My daughter has truly met some amazing teachers and children here. Thank you

Excellent childcare and pre school provision. All members of staff are helpful and professional. Our son developed brilliantly and loved attending the pre school setting. Every day he went he was encouraged to learn whilst having fun. He was dropped at Pre school at 7.30 two days a week and we could claim the NEF free childcare hours.

Hello Simon, all the team appreciate your review, the thank you card and the delicious cakes from the family. Your son has been a pleasure to have with us. He has enjoyed everyday of his time with us, especially his last day during seaside week when we all dressed up as Pirates. He has made lots of friends. We will miss you all and our little chats at 7.30!

My little girl has attended Selston childcare for a year and absolutely loves the nursery and adores all the staff. A really nice small, homely nursery setting with friendly, enthusiastic, nurturing staff.

Thank you, a pleasure to have known your family especially your daughter, such a lively little bundle of fun and that strong will, we will all miss her, and your family very much. We all wish her well on her new chapter at BIG SCHOOL! from all at Selston Childcare.

Both my children have attended this nursery and also use the wrap around care from the school next door. Staff are lovely and easily approachable. The use of makaton really helped my oldest child in communicating as was really not confident and had slow speech. Both thrived in their environment and I can't praise them enough for their outstanding work. Would definitely recommend.
