Reviews

8 Play and Learn Adventure Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (7.975)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Play and Learn Adventure Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Play and Learn Adventure Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.85 for Play and Learn Adventure Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.85

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Play and Learn Adventure Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

The staff are very friendly. I have a good experience at the nursery. My daughter is learning a lot with her key worker. I don't know what I would do without her at the nursery. All of the staff are professional and likes kids. The only thing I can say negatively is the fact that my daughter comes home very dirty with paint everywhere. I think every child should have bibs when they are painting as some of the paint is hard to remove from the clothes.

I am extremely happy with this wonderful nursery. My son has development delays and the staff were amazing recognising our sons needs, and explaining it all to us in a very sensitive a delicate manner, which was incredible, they have done everything in their ability to give my son the help and support he needs, he even receives one to one from SENCO there. They are always happy to talk to us as parents to let us know how further they can help our son. This is a wonderful and very supportive nursery, the staff and manager are an asset to the company and should be rewarded. I would recommend this nursery to every mother and father who want their child(ren) to have the best start in life.

My child enjoys Play and Learn Day Nursery. She is very comfortable with all the staff as they are attentive towards her which has helped develop her learning.
She enjoys her daily walks to the park with her friends!! Definitely recommend the nursery to parents who want their children to learn but also have fun. :D

My child is not very social around strangers, and was true to form during the settling in period, and we initially though it wouldn't work.

After a week or so she really began to open up to the staff and other children, and I'm glad we made the decision to stick with professional nursery childcare. She is so much happier now. I think the staff really put themselves out to make sure she was happy, and having the setting inside a park was a brilliant idea. Every day is like a mini school trip, she always comes home talking about feeding squirrels or ducks and her new best friends. It's a smaller nursery than some others nearby but I think that has helped our daughter as she is naturally shy. Overall I'm very happy with the staff and learning she has achieved so far.
