Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Play B C Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.683 for Play B C Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.683

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Play B C Preschool 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500

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

8.9 Play B C Preschool has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.933)

My daughter has settled here so quickly and really well.
She has only been attending here since January and she talks about all her teachers in such a lovely way.
I feel her teachers have made a huge effort in making her feel welcome and getting her really involved in everything.

My daughter started this pre-school in November and really enjoys going. She has made lots of friends and talks about them daily and even asks me about staff members when she is at home. There are always different activities for her to enjoy and she has had two outings since she started. I have already recommended this nursery to two of my friends and their children now attend here. Super clean environment and I was made to feel at ease leaving my daughter for the first time. They helped her to settle quickly.

My daughter has been going to Play B C preschool for nearly two years and it feels like second home to her! Initially, when she started, we had a few concerns about her speech and language development. Our concerns were immediately addressed and we were referred for speech therapy. However, with support from preschool staff, she made good progress and now we can't stop her chattering! The preschool has lots of activities on offer and every day is a new adventure. Parents can see their child's progress through updates in the electronic learning journal; parents can also contribute. Most importantly, my child feels safe and knows that her teachers will take care of her at school. I highly recommend Play B C preschool as I believe it has been the perfect partner in my daughter's education and a great launch pad for her journey ahead!

Marsha Dann, Lead Teacher at Play B C Preschool responded to this review on 12 Jul 2017:

She's a superstar and will be sorely missed!

My son loves the nursery. It's only recently he started calling it pre-school as far as he was concerned it felt like going to a home where he was safe and happy always called it Mrs D's house. I enrolled my son when he was just 2 years old, the support and learning he has received whilst at Play B C Preschool will definitely help him when he starts big school, which, surprise surprise he doesn't want to go to unless "my (Play BC) teachers come with me".

My son loves Play B C. The staff are friendly and keep me well informed. They always have new fun activities set up and I like being able to see observations via the on line system. Very happy with them and I would recommend.

Really lovely teacher led pre-school. Nice, modern looking room. A number of activities set out each day with good quality resources. The teachers are always very pleasant and welcoming. Great communication by text, email and letter. 'Parents Evening' each term. My daughter has really come on in leaps and bounds and loves pre-school. Her favourite things to do? going in the garden, play doh and French (a French teacher comes once a week).

The management as well as all the teachers are fantastic. Communication is well-maintained in the school environment. A very friendly atmosphere for children to be in. Parents are always updated about the school activities.
Excellent daily feedback from the teachers about the children. The parents are always welcomed by the teachers about the children. The nursery is well organised and structured. The teacher and the management are doing a great job.

Lovely pre school, staff are excellent, my daughter loves going and now staying for lunch club.
My little girl was very clingy when she started but soon settled in as all the staff were and are
great with her, she comes home most days singing new songs and has learnt lots since starting here.
Would thoroughly recommend Play B C to other parents.

It is a good nursery. Children are taken care of very well. They are having individual approach to every child's needs.
The nursery is hosting many activities and provide a lot of support to parents in terms of child development. My son enjoys going there.
The most important thing is that nursery workers are putting their heart into what they do. It is a great place!
