Reviews

9.9 Kids 1st QE has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.918)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Kids 1st QE 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 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 1st QE in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 21 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 4.946 for Kids 1st QE is calculated as follows: ( (385 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 406 Ratings = 4.946

  • 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 4.972 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 1st QE is based on 21 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.972

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

Our 17-month-old little girl has been attending Kids 1st QE for 5 months. She is there for 2 days a week and is so happy there. As parents, we are confident leaving her in the capable hands of the staff, who genuinely love and care for her. She is coming on leaps and bounds.

Kids 1st is a wonderfully friendly nursery to both children and parents. There is a wide range of activities for children and I always feel involved in his day. There is support always available and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I'm delighted we chose this nursery. Attending nursery full time made me feel guilty but I genuinely feel the staff are fabulous and include me in my son's care. He gets a wide variety of food and introduced to new tastes which he wouldn't have at home.
Kids 1st is fantastic.

Kids 1st QE is amazing. My daughter was very timid when initially started in August 2016 but all the staff have been amazing and supported my daughter who literally runs into nursery every morning. She absolutely loves all the nursery nurses and made some little friends. My daughter's speech and development have come on loads since starting the QE and this is down to the staff. My daughter is becoming very independent and won't allow anyone to help her at meal times, she obviously sees the other children feeding themselves. I'm so pleased I picked kids first nursery I don't worry about my daughter when I'm at work as I know she is having a lovely day and loves being at nursery

My son started at Kids 1st QE Nursery when he was 18 months. It was his second nursery as we had moved house. I was really worried about how he would settle especially with all the disruption of the move. However I needn't have worried, he was so well looked after and settled in really quickly.
We both love his nursery. He does activities that I would never think of doing at home and it encourages me to try new things at home.
The team are both friendly and professional and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the nursery.

I've been extremely unhappy with my son's childcare over the last year and looked constantly to change it but everywhere I went nothing looked different.
In all the places I found the same unhappy faces and unorganised programme for the children.
Soon as I walked into Kids 1 QE I knew that this is the right place for my son. Everyone looked happy, the activities they do don't allow the children to get bored in the room, the place is so clean, the food provided is perfect, the rooms are spacious and light, the garden is well maintained and clean with loads of things to play with.
All in all a perfect place to be for my little one!
The nursery has been recommended by a friend.
Her little boy is extremely happy in there too.

I love this nursery, my daughter does really well here in the pre-school group. The staff are all really lovely, and my daughter loves her key worker. They do great activities and the building is lovely, the rooms are nice and spacious and the gardens are great. I love that parents get a cup of tea and a biscuit on the way out too.

As a parent, it's difficult to know what is the best to do for your child, but choosing Kids 1st was the best decision we made. Our son has gained so much confidence and learned so much since starting at the nursery and it's all down to the staff. It feels like an extension of our family which, for me, is the most important thing. You're in a comfortable environment. The facilities and technology available are amazing and I'd happily recommend it to everyone.

My little boy enjoys every second at Kids 1st QE. The members of staff who have cared for him have been fantastic, he feels comfortable with all of them and has come on so much from when he started in February last year. The care my son has received has made me feel confident in leaving him at nursery as I know he has so much fun and does lots of activities that I can see on the parent zone app. Kids 1st is an excellent nursery and would highly recommend it to any new parents who need reassurance that their child will receive the highest quality of care.

My little boy is in Starfish 2 and has been so settled since day 1. The staff are fantastic and they know my little boy so well. He had food allergies when he first started and they were extremely accommodating and supportive catering to his needs every day. His development is tracked so well and they are aware of his progress in all areas of the EYFS. My son is thriving in this environment and I am over the moon as a parent. Could not be happier.

I regularly recommend Kids 1st QE to those looking for childcare. The atmosphere is always a positive and happy one. The environment is bright and colourful the play equipment is fun yet educational. Staff are all approachable and very friendly. The facilities are beautifully presented and always clean and tidy. I feel involved with my daughters learning with regular updates and parents evenings. My little one always leaves nursery happy having enjoyed her day. I can see a huge difference in her learning and confidence since starting at Kids 1st QE. I honestly can't recommend Kids 1st QE enough.

Both my daughters attend kids 1st QE we and I can't praise all staff enough my youngest was only just turned one when she first started and wow the girls have looked after her and cared for her she instantly settled and started to look forward to leaving me. My 2nd daughter has come on leaps and bounds from the teaching of the staff since starting. She will be ready to start school. They have all contributed towards making both my girls happy and safe as well as great learners.
Also, would like to put across how excellent the management is too and never hesitate to help and explain any queries. The meals have also given both my girls great nutrition and are always eager to try new food, and that's thanks to the nursery and everything that's been introduced to them.

Could not be happier with Kids 1st QE. All the staff are fantastic and every morning my boys and I are greeted with a smile and made to feel so welcome by any staff we come in to contact with. I'm kept well up to date with progress and day-to-day activities. The nursery is extremely clean. I'm confident that my son is going to be well cared for when I drop him off each morning. My eldest son who doesn't attend kids 1st loves the home made biscuits after we drop his brother off and I love the hot drink. Keep up the amazing work kids 1st QE! I can't recommend you enough ??

Great nursery which has brought my daughter on leaps and bounds. She used to be scared going into the nursery but soon was wishing to go and I still have trouble picking her up, as she wants to stay. Extremely friendly and polite staff who get on amazing with all children. Always encouraging my daughter to excel herself.

When choosing a nursery for my son Kids 1st QE was the first one I visited and I knew straight away that it was the place for us. The staff are so welcoming and you feel like they want to be at work. The meals provided are varied and healthy and give my son the opportunity to try things that I may not have considered giving him myself. There are always activities going on for the children and the staff go above and beyond to make you and your child feel special. For a example, at Christmas, a parcel came home with handmade gifts, a present for my son. Cards from the staff and other items such as photos of my son dressed as an elf. A big selling point for me was the parent zone app that allows me to see what my done has eaten, nappy changes and also photos of things he has done. This especially helped me when I first went back to work as I knew I could check in throughout the day which helped me with the transition.

Kids 1st QE are a fantastic bunch of staff, with great management. I feel very real assured being at work all day knowing my child is looked after with such a high standard of care. I especially love the observation put on by the girls so I can see how well she is progressing. Also, my child has never had any accidents which assures me a close eye is kept at all times. Nursery very flexible at times of need. And the food she is given is out of this world.

By far the best nursery we have come across!! We visited many in the search and when we found Kids 1st QE, on paper it seemed to good to be true. We were invited for a visit and we're not disappointed - from walking in the front door, the staff were welcoming and the nursery itself was inviting. The staff are lovely, friendly and professional. I was concerned as my son has an allergy, but they have accommodated him and we have never had any issues. I don't feel 'mum guilt' when I leave him there as I know he is extremely well looked after and he has fun! And he always is suitably worn out by the time he gets home! The nursery has a security pass entry and free coffee in the mornings - bonus! The room are spacious, clean, each with its own garden, and the dining room is very cute!

Kids 1st QE is simply exceptional. The staff are friendly and welcoming and make a real effort to get to know parents and children. They have been fantastic at setting our children and they both have a strong bond with their key workers. The children are given loads of opportunities for different types of learning and play and it is clear how much effort goes into planning their activities.
The environment is always clean, bright and welcoming and the facilities are excellent. The food is brilliant and my children always eat well. The whole place is a credit to the amazing management team!

Our son has been attending Kids 1st QE for almost a year. He started attending when he was 9 months old when I was returning to work and I had spent hardly any time away from him. I was anxious about leaving him but, from our first visit, all the staff made me feel confident that my son was in the best hands.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this nursery. But what has impressed me most is that the staff genuinely care deeply for my son, and they share my excitement and pride when he learns new things. The staff have also helped me on a personal level by taking the time to sit with me and talk to me when I have had low periods because of postnatal depression.

My son looks forward to going to nursery and I look forward to hearing all about his day. I also love to look at the videos, photographs, and assessments on the online parent zone whenever I want to and wherever I go.

I feel very lucky that we are part of such a supportive community that really cares.

The staff go above and beyond what is expected of them. From day 1 I have felt that my child had been cared for to the highest standard. Nothing is ever too much trouble. My child loves all the staff, the manager has a real presence and is fully hands on whilst also ensuring that parents are valued and listened to.
I cannot recommend Kids 1st QE enough, first class childcare in a purposeful, quality setting with staff who care. What more could I want for my child?

My son started at Kids 1st QE back in June and I could not have asked for a better nursery! I was very anxious to leave my baby and go back to work but after speaking to the nursery manager regarding my anxieties I was offered some additional settling in visits. On the inductions I was greeted by friendly staff who took the time and effort to listen to my worries and answer all of my questions. They made a real effort to get to know my son and although a little unsure at first by the time he had attended his second visit he didn't want to leave! The resources are fantastic and I love that the children have free access to the gardens throughout the day. The staff team is brilliant and the relationships the staff have with the children is amazing to see. I love being able to check on what he has been achieving on Iconnect, the activities provided are fabulous. I could not recommend this nursery more highly!

I couldn't rate Kids 1st QE highly enough! After our daughter was a little apprehensive to begin with, the staff have gone above and beyond to help her (and us!) settle. We are now so confident about leaving our daughter and it's heart warming to watch her pack her bag and sleep with it next to her because she's so excited to go! The nursery itself is exemplary. The staff, curriculum, technology are more than I could have imagined but by far the best thing is that we feel like we're part of a family there and that's the most important thing for me.

I am extremely happy with the quality of care at Kids 1st QE. The environment is excellent and the food is fantastic. My son has milk allergy and the nursery have been brilliant at ensuring his dietary needs are met. The team are wonderful and I feel they genuinely care about him beyond it being their job. He started at six months old and has settled in fantastically. It is hard emotionally being a mum and working full time but I know that my child is in the best possible hands so I don't need to worry about his well being.

My daughter thrives under the care of Kids 1st QE. During the month of March she underwent a number of assessments by her child carers and all were carried out with particular care and attention. She is thriving metacognitively, physically and her mental health is in a really positive state. She enjoys every minute of her time in Kids 1st. She enjoys socialising with her fiends, building relationships with peers and child care assistants and her day to day routine of playing and most importantly learning.

Our little boy is only 15 months old and always giggles on arrival to the nursery! It was very hard leaving him this week when he joined, especially as he is our first child and we have never left him with people we don't know. He has the best time, and never looks that impressed when I say it's home time!
The updates on the parent zone app are fantastic. His daddy is able to check up on his little boy's day when he is away working.
All the children seem so happy and we couldn't recommend it enough. Thank you to all the staff for leaving my mind at rest when we leave him.

The care for our child has been first class. Every single day we are greeted with positive professional and thorough staff. Activities have been tailored to our son's home experiences. If he's been unwell we've received updates and extensive information on pick up. The online 'parent zone' is brilliant.

Leaving my son was the hardest thing I've had to do but the staff at QE were so supportive. I couldn't ask anymore and I'm delighted we chose this nursery!

My daughter loves attending the nursery so much she cried when leaving and asks when she can come back. Nobody better to review that the feedback I get from my daughter!

My son Started here in November 2015. I cannot recommend the nursery highly enough. The staff are extremely attentive and have been fabulous settling my son into the nursery as he was upset leaving his previous nursery. The resources on offer are of a high quality and there is plenty variation available. I just know he will flourish and thrive here at kids 1st Q.E and I am so happy I chose to move him.
