Reviews

9.2 Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Sale has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.191)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Sale is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Sale in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.718 for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Sale is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.718

  • 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 4.473 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Planet Day Nurseries - Sale 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.473

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

My little girl attended this nursery for two years. She absolutely loved it and she has learnt so much in her time there. I was extremely happy with all the staff and couldn't fault the nursery at all. She now attends school and still talks about the nursery and her time there.

My daughter (4) has been at KP since she was 18 months old. I am really happy with KP and I have nothing but praise for the staff and management. I am particularly pleased with:
- how caring the staff have all been from the outset. Little things make a difference, like how they all know her name (even if she is not in their room) and they know her sister's name (she is at school and never even went to KP)
- the fact that the nursery take the children out to the park/ library/ to plant plants and feed the ducks / to the cenotaph for Remembrance day etc
- the quality of the teaching that my daughter receives in pre-school. She can count/write her name/ has known the months of the year/ days of the week now for ages etc. Also, I see fabulous updates on Facebook showing all sorts of different activities that they have been up to- stuff that I would never do at home.
My daughter skips into nursery has lots of friends there and loves the staff and activities. I will be sad when she leaves.

I'm extremely happy with the care that my child receives at Kids Planet Sale. The menu is wholesome, varied and healthy. The carers are truly devoted to the children and make sure not only that they are well looked after but also that they develop their skills according to their own needs.

My son have been at this nursery since he was 9 months old and he is nearly 2 now. The girls in the baby room are lovely and I couldn't ask for more from them.

Any questions they are happy to sit down and go through with you. I am a mum who likes to be told the truth and not hide away from what my son has done good or bad and I appreciate the honesty when I ask how he has been in the day.

I can only comment on the baby room as that is where my son has been so far but I would highly recommend.

They are always asking for recommendations and feedback, which I think is great to get new ideas across.

I have always found the standard of care to be high from the key workers and regular staff who have looked after my son; in the baby, toddler and rising 3's rooms.
He is always stimulated and has a range of activities each day he is there.
I have also found the staff to be very supportive during some difficult family times, they will work with you to support and make things as easy as possible.
I have noticed quite a high turnover of staff and often changing cover staff, which for some parents and children, isn't ideal. I'm not sure why this is.
In the past I have been asked to suggest foods that I would like to see on the menu, unfortunately I haven't seen any of my suggestions, which I deem to be nutritious and simple, my son refuses anything too complicated or unusual and then has toast as a back up. It would be nice for some alternatives to be available.

My son has flourished in his years at this nursery. He is well taken care of and enjoys his time here. The staff are amazing, always friendly, patient and supportive.
My newborn is already registered to start attending when I return to work. Highly recommend Kids Planet to anyone wishing their child to develop in an encouraging and fun environment.

Kids Planet Sale is a well run, caring, trustworthy and reliable environment that we are happy both our boys go to. The level of care is excellent, and staff go above and beyond in looking after little ones, both pastorally and educationally.
Children are treated as the individuals they are and the communication with parents is excellent and effective. We feel very safe trusting the staff here with our boys and would recommend the nursery to anyone who wants peace of mind and for their children to benefit and enjoy a great nursery. Cleanliness and healthy food are also immaculately well thought out and executed. Big thanks and a thumbs up from us.

The nursery has made best use of the space they have outside. As it's a smallish nursery my daughter has got to know most of the staff members so when she moves up to the next room it's an easier settle.
All the staff have been very good & accommodating. Plenty of different activities in the day & outside play, whatever the weather as they have a covered area.
I would recommend the nursery.

We have been sending our daughter to Kids Planet for about 6 months and have been really impressed. We chose this nursery due to the fact that it's a relatively new facility. It is very clean and the staff are extremely friendly. Our daughter always comes home tired due to all the activities and development she gets. Staff keep us updated both daily and at parents evening of her development and I really believe that they are interested in her development.
