Kids 2 Us, Manchester, Greater Manchester

Kids2Us children's day nursery in Astley is a state of the art, purpose-built day nursery for children aged three months to five years.

Their primary focus is the children and everything they provide and do has been designed through the eyes of a child; each neutrally decorated but cosy room is a place of wonderment, specifically designed for each age group, where natural curiosity is encouraged and young horizons are allowed to expand.

Children will be guided through their early educational development by staff, who are selected not just for their qualifications, but also their loving and caring nature.

Their aim is to nurture children during their formative years, giving them the social skills and confidence they need to make the transition into school life.

They know that leaving children can be difficult but they hope to make that easier for parents through promotion of their industry leading 'settling in' process for the whole family.

They are always delighted to invite new families to take a personal tour of the nursery with the Nursery Manager, who is always on hand to answer any questions parents may have.

Reviews

9.4 Kids 2 Us has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.360)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Kids 2 Us 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 2 Us in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 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 4.675 for Kids 2 Us is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (39 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.675

  • 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 4.685 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 2 Us is based on 10 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.685

  • 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 has been at the nursery since January and I can honestly say it's probably the best thing I could have done for her. She loves going and she looks forward to playing with the children, learning new things and she absolutely loves her nursery nurses. Everybody there is amazing and I want to thank them all for all their help and support in nurturing my baby.

My daughter has been at Kids 2 Us since being 7 months old. I can highly recommend the nursery and will be sad when she leaves to join the school in September.

My daughter's key worker is great with her, she can be shy at times but her key worker helps her in so many ways. All the staff at Kids 2 Us are really nice and helpful.

My 11-month-old has been coming for settling in sessions. Staff have been really welcoming and friendly. My son has been a little unsure but staff have been really reassuring. I like the fact that the babies are given lots of physical contact to make them feel safe and comfortable.

We have been very impressed with how the first few months have gone for our child in the nursery. We feel very comfortable dropping her off and leaving her knowing full well she will be fed, looked after and engage in stimulating activities. We can tell our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her time at Kids 2 Us.
