8.2 Kids 1st Jesmond has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.220)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Kids 1st Jesmond 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids 1st Jesmond in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.875 for Kids 1st Jesmond is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.875

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.345 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids 1st Jesmond is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.095

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

Can't speak highly enough of the nursery and staff. Welcoming and nurturing environment, with lots to do inside and they have outside space too. Staff and management very responsive and get to know individual children well. My son has really thrived over the time he's been here. Thank you.

My twin boys attend Kids 1st in Jesmond and have been there for almost a month now.
Choosing a nursery is difficult, or should I say was difficult until I came across Kids 1st Jesmond. After speaking to the manager, I was convinced this would be the best place for my boys. Nothing else came close.
Lovely building, great staff and an amazing manager. Really happy with everything and would recommend to all. The cakes in the parent's room aren't too bad either!!
