Reviews

9 The Chase Nursery Kirby has a Review Score of 9 (9.010)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for The Chase Nursery Kirby is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Chase Nursery Kirby in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 3 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 4.885 for The Chase Nursery Kirby is calculated as follows: ( (172 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 4.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Chase Nursery Kirby is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.625

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

My child has been attending this little place of joy for a year now.
The changes he has made is amazing, this nursery has made my child confident and comfortable in his own skin. He learns something different every time he attends, he has fun and is extremely happy.
The Chase is very welcoming and has fantastic staff lead by a brilliant manager.
They all have warm hearts and upbeat spirits. The children do fantastic activities from learning about bugs to playing and days out at the beach, its one amazing adventure.
Thanks to them for fulfilling my child's mind with all the wonderful things when he attends The Chase!

I am so pleased with The Chase Nursery Kirby. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds from not wanting to attend nursery to wanting to go every day because of the staff keeping things exciting and keeping the children interested in different topics they cover. The nursery also has the facilities to take the children out on trips in the mini-bus. They recently went to the beach and they had a wonderful time flying kites, building sand castles etc. All in all, this nursery is a great place for learning and fun in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

My daughter has been attending Mother and Toddler Group for a year and half and has been attending nursery for one morning per week since September 2016. It is a wonderful nursery and provides lots of varied activities for the children. My daughter has come so far in the short time she has been attending nursery, both with her speech and her confidence. She has become very artistic and she can now share toys with a smile on her face. The staff and I have become very friendly and have got to know each other thanks to their Mother and Toddler group. I feel that this relationship I have with them will only help my daughter progress even more. If I could, I would give The Chase Nursery a 6 star review!

The staff here are very helpful and reassuring. My little boy is shy and nervous and they have been fantastic at helping him settle in. He enjoys the variety of activities they have even though it is a small nursery they do a lot. I am very happy with his progress here.

An extremely welcoming environment. Staff are very caring and friendly. Activities provided are suitable for all age groups. The outdoor space is excellent. A big bonus is that the nursery is situated in the grounds of the local primary school and there are extremely close links between the two.

Excellent pre-school environment. Staff, friendly, supportive and genuinely interested in the children. All children well catered for educationally, no matter what ability. The staff tailor activities to meet individuals interest. The setting is able to make use of the extensive outside area provided from being on a schools grounds. My son settled quickly and loves coming in every day. I leave him happy and reassured that he will be well looked after and have a fantastic day.

Had a very pleasant experience so far. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. My child's speech has noticeably improved in the time she has been here, as has her confidence. The staff have also been very accommodating with the potty training of my child.

Kerry boughey, Owner at The Chase Nursery Kirby responded to this review on 30 Sep 2015:

Really lovely review! Thank you to all the parents for your continued support too.

My youngest child attended The Chase Nursery she was content and happy all the time and formed a strong bond with the staff, she always came home having learnt something new. The nursery was always clean and structured, I would not hesitate to recommend The Chase Kirby to anyone thinking of putting their child into nursery.

My daughter currently attends The Kirby Chase and absolutely loves it! She visited the nursery during the 6 weeks holidays during their Holiday Club which helped her settle when she started. She has learnt so much in such a short space of time and I can't thank the girls enough! She loves going to nursery and brings home such lovely work every day. Brilliant nursery!
