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 4.675 for Kindercare - East Keswick, Collingham (Part of the Treetops Family) is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.675

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

    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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kindercare - East Keswick, Collingham (Part of the Treetops Family) is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

The staff are all fantastic and very experienced. They really care for the children. My daughter seems to love them all. She always walks in with a huge smile on her face. They do many activities both in and outside. Most days we get “art” work to bring home. They build a schedule around her likes and dislikes. She regularly comes home having learnt something new and is making good progress.
Security is good. They ensure that anyone who comes to collect her has ID which reassures me of her safety. Many of my friends who have children at other nurseries complain about nappy rash as nappies aren’t changed often enough but this has never been an issue. We get a report at the end of every day on when nappies are changed and it always happens regularly.
The food is all varied and my daughter will regularly eat all of it so it must be tasty too!
They are always coming up with things to get parents involved too which I like.
I can’t recommend this nursery highly enough!

My child enjoys their time at nursery. Generally, the staff are supportive and take time out to encourage my child especially eating which can be a challenge. The staff seem to interact well with the children and provide lots of activities to help with development.

My only concern has been the changes in staff which I have raised previously with the nursery, however, my child has a key worker whom she is very happy with, shares things with and who I feel fully supports my child which I am grateful for.

My son has attended the nursery for well over a year now and thoroughly enjoys his time there. He started in the baby room and is now in Tweenies.

One thing that was really important to me was that the key workers from the team who had looked after my son in the baby room made the journey up to Tweenies to ensure continuity of care and a comfortable transition.

His personal development in terms of his verbal communication is exceptional and I credit that in part to his time with the Kindercare team.

The facilities are purpose built and provide an excellent, safe and engaging setting for learning and development.

The team is always smiling and welcoming and I can truly get the sense that they love children and have their very best interests at heart.

Our son has been attending Kindercare since he was 15 months old and we could not be happier with the standard of care provided. The staff are warm, welcoming, engaging and treat every child as an individual, taking their time to learn their likes/dislikes etc. Our son has come on leaps and bounds in his development since attending Kindercare - East Keswick and thoroughly enjoys his time there. He is happy, stimulated and content. He loves the staff and other children and often talks about them by name at home.

Very happy with the care my daughter receives at Kindercare Nursery. The staff are lovely and take a real interest in my daughter's needs and interests. I enjoy the current activities they do, for example, yoga and dough disco. I love the generous outdoor space which a lot of the other local nurseries don't have and appreciate how they take on board any concerns we have as parents. The security and safe guarding give me a huge peace of mind and I feel like my child has come on a lot since attending.

Our little boy has been attending this nursery for over a year now, he has a varied balance of care providers including a childminder and grandparents. He recognises and looks forward to his days here. The staff and management have been fantastic for me as a first time mum going through the process of going back to work, and with my son being away from me for the first time. They have been flexible with his days, adding days due to family illness when needed, which is very much appreciated. I looked around several nurseries before choosing this one and was impressed with the cleanliness, attitude and commitment of the staff. From the first time we looked around the site I knew this was the place for my little boy. Keep up the good work and a big thank you for all you do.

Instantly I felt very comfortable with the place and staff that I didn't feel it necessary to look anywhere else. I do not regret my decision one bit. The place is so clean, there are lots of activities to keep the children entertained all day, lots of outdoor time which is fantastic for my little boy who loves playing out. The food is varied, always different things on the menu! The staff are incredibly friendly and it's evident how much they enjoy working with children by the welcome each receives every morning and they are still smiling at the end of the day at pick up time.
I looked at moving recently only due to a change in personal circumstances but after looking around another nursery it just didn't compare. I've had a very difficult year and the nursery has been so supportive, not just with my boy but take an equal interest in my well being and provide so much invaluable help and support. Nothing is ever too much to ask! I couldn't be more grateful! Keep up the good work team!

Our 16 mths old has just recently joined from a childminder environment, and what could have been quite stressful for all involved has been handled in a positive and assured manner. Hence our little chap is settling in well and the staff have been a big part of this, helping him adjust to his new environment.

Kindercare truly is outstanding. My son was worried about starting a new nursery after a tough start at another but thanks to the management and staff he settled in quickly (they were great with me too) and he adores coming to you. The manager is an asset to the team, she showed me around initially and clinched it for me with her happy approach, experience and professionalism. Thanks also to the deputy and staff for their kindness to my son. Kindercare not only provides an emotionally safe, secure place but the staff there genuinely care about the children. I also know that his key worker and management are committed to my son making him as prepared as possible for school when he starts next year. His key worker told me today how he's practising numbers and recognising his name. Thank you to the staff for always going above and beyond. I cannot recommend the nursery highly enough and have recommended you to many (even a lady at the doctor's who ended up bringing her twins to you). Thanks guys and keep up the good work!

My grandchild has been attending Kindercare - East Keswick nursery for the past couple of months. She settled in very quickly as the staff had asked my son for information about likes and dislikes, which she likes stories so they always greeted us with a selection of books for her to chose a story which we left. Now that she has been attending for a while, my grand daughter is coming home with different kinds of art work and talking about the fun she has had outside. I always find the staff to be cheerful and helpful answering any questions that we have. The nursery itself is a lovely building and is clean and tidy.
