Reviews

9.8 IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.793)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.793 for IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood is calculated as follows: ( (161 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 188 Ratings = 4.793

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood is based on 11 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target Reached = 1

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

Just wanted to write a review on how great my nursery is. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds ahead of her age all thanks to the time and development the staff give to her. She has made some amazing friends, she eats so much better and it's a clean and healthy environment. Staff and management should be proud.

I have been extremely impressed with the level of care our daughter receives whilst at Barwood Intoplay. All the staff that we have come into contact with so far are fantastic, they have strong bonds with all the children. We have noticed how much her development has come along since starting there, and as a parent (and teacher), I feel confident that the staff are doing they very best for my child. All staff are approachable and friendly, very good lines of communication during handover. Thank you.

Lovely dedicated staff, excellent care provided. My son is clearly happy in their company. They have some excellent activities provided. They have been particularly helpful during a stressful house move. I couldn't be happier with my choice of nursery.

Sue Smith, Manager at IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood responded to this review on 29 Mar 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to submit a review for us! Sue and the team.

My son started at IntoPlay Barnwood in October 2016 and he settled in really well. He had three settling in session, to begin with, which allowed him to feel at ease with the staff and his new environment.
My son is very fond of his keyworker and often talks about the activities they do during the days, such as yoga and outdoor play.
Overall I'm very pleased with the staff, environment and activities that IntoPlay Barnwood provide.

Wonderful nursery and wonderful staff.
I have a child under 2 who is here full time. He is a happy confident child. He eats a full variety of healthy, homemade food every day. They carry out activities that you wish you could do at home but couldn't stomach the thought of cleaning up after. His development is on target if not ahead and I would credit a large part of that to the stimulation and social skills he picks up from nursery and his table manners are impressive.
I am happy with the staff. They really get to know your child and work with you when you choose to make small changes such as weaning or dropping naps. They are approachable when you need advice or if you need them to keep an eye on any concerns you have.
There isn't a negative thing I can say about the place, which is a good thing if you consider that my child spends a large percentage of his life there.

My little boy (20 months) is so happy and settled at Barnwood IntoPlay. The staff are brilliant, they have really strong bonds with the children which is lovely. I always arrive to find my little one having a good time. He is always bringing home bits he has made during activities and the staff are so thoughtful helping the children make things for special occasions like Christmas, Mothers Day etc. The regular nursery newsletters are great for keeping parents up to date with special occasions and general goings on.
I cannot fault the food, it is home made and I am regularly told my little one has had 3 servings of lunch! He obviously loves it! The nursery itself is a lovely, large building with big airy rooms and brightly decorated walls, there are more toys and activities than the kids know what to do with and they have a large garden to run around in with all sorts of toys and activities to play with.
Its such a lovely nursery and I have recommended IntoPlay to several friends.

A super nursery. My daughter is two and loves the days she spends here. I am now in the process of introducing my second daughter here before I return to work. I would recommend this nursery to anyone and the staff are super, they ensure that your child gets plenty of settling in sessions so that they are happy and ready when the time comes for you to leave them and go to work. Excellent management, the manager is very open, friendly and accommodating with all your needs.

All three of my children have very much enjoyed their time with IntoPlay. Perfect start to school life. I will be sad when my youngest finishes pre-school this year. I can't thank the staff enough. Barnwood is a great addition, excellently managed.

My son appears happy, confident and keen to engage with all aspects of his day in nursery. He surprises me with increasing evidence of socialising skills and polite behaviour (he is only 3). The nursery staff communicate well and engage with my husband and I to optimise care and the learning journey my son is on. As a parent, I am pleased with my choice of nursery and I would definitely recommend IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood to any parent.

My son attends this nursery and is enjoying it very much. He loves all the staff and has already built up a great rapport with them. He doesn't even look back when I drop him off! He has only been going a few weeks and has already brought home a vast variety of things he's made. I am very happy that he is safe and secure. He's had a great range of meals and is utterly content with being there.

Very pleased with the nursery. They are very helpful and my son loves it there. He couldn't talk much but since hes been going there he has come out on his own and they are very understanding. All the staff are lovely and kind and they care of your children and they always want what best for them and to help them improve. I would differently tell my friend about the nursery to take their children there
Thank you keep up the hard work xxx
