Reviews

9.3 Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.291)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill 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 Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 16 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 Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill is calculated as follows: ( (169 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 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 4.406 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill is based on 16 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 39.4 positive Reviews (197 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 39.4 Target = 0.406

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

I would highly recommend the nursery as my little girl has been there for three years and has learnt so much and is so clever and ready for school. The workplace is brilliant and there are so many facilities for the children and they get the children involved in everything. The management and staff are great and my little one loves everything - my little one did have an eating disorder which they helped with and they offer different foods.

I'm a working mum with two children aged four and six, my working hours start before my children begin school so I decided to look for before school care, my children started at Kids Around The Clock Benchill in September 2017 and the facilities that they provide are fantastic , there is a lovely warm family ethical feel and all the staff are welcoming and helpful , it gives me great peace of mind and sense of security that my children are left in a safe loving hands and are taken to school for me whilst I work , breakfast is also offered whilst various activities are undergoing before they go to school , my son adds that he loves the aunties and he enjoys going on the iPad, my daughter adds that she also loves the aunties and also enjoys saying good morning to Princess the pet tortoise, my children are happy and content and there's no price you can put on that

My son started coming to Kids Around The Clock in January and he is doing really well since. I am happy with how he has developed since coming to this nursery. The staff have looked after my son really well. My son never really ate at home much being an only child but since coming nursery he likes to sit with the other children and eat with them. He is really loved by all the staff at nursery and happily goes in to nursery in the mornings. I would recommend this nursery to other parents.

I chose this nursery for my 3-month-old daughter, I was very nervous at first as any mother would be but all the staff are amazing, so friendly and are happy to help at any time. After only a week, I feel I can go to work without worrying. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Trustworthy, reliable, fun, exciting, fantastically managed nursery for their child. At Kids Around The Clock, they make it work for the little one and for the parents. They have a massive play area surrounding the building also a sensory room, their own massive kitchen where their lovely Chefs cook homemade fresh food for the children. Through the day the kids do many activities, for instance, my son made his own massive blue ball of playdough the other day he was thrilled also story time, 1 on 1 teaching the children the necessary for their age group, for example, my son is learning how to spell his name and write it. I could go on forever. All in all 100 out of 10 the whole team put their all into Kids Around The Clock it truly is like a little Family. Every day, without fail, once we walk through them gates all we receive is good vibes, happy people and smiles naturally greeting you. I really could not ask for more, I trust the team wholeheartedly to leave my son in their care.

My daughter has been attending Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill since it opened last year and she loves every minute!
The nursery is beautifully clean with so many different resources for the children to access, my daughter particularly loves the sensory and movie/Games room.
The staff are extremely helpful and always happy to answer any questions I may have.
My daughters class also has a teacher as well as childcare providers and her learning has come on leaps and bounds, she is always letting me know what she has been learning that day and brings home an array of craft and learning projects!
I like the fact I can see her progression through the nursery's use of one file and I am always sent pictures and progress reports.
The nursery has a chef and we are able to see the menu choices of what the children will be served each day. The nursery follows a healthy eating scheme and all food is cooked from scratch with fresh produce, so I know my child is being fed really well in the day.

Since my child has been at this nursery I have seen a massive change in him, such as behaviour, speech, eating habits, he has always been a happy child but he seems to be happier since attending nursery, he has come on in leaps and bounds with colours, numbers and interacting with other children.

My little one goes to the Benchill Kids Around the Clock Nursery. They haven't been open long but are really working hard to make a great success of the place.

This is a specially built nursery that was recently acquired by KATC. It is safe and secure and the staff are really friendly. The work hard at identifying what makes your child happy and really bring the best out of them.

There is a good vibe amongst staff and children which count for a lot in my opinion as other settings don't have this feel.

I would recommend going for a show around if you are looking to place your child in this nursery. KATC are going from strength to strength and can only get better.

My son moved to Kids Around The Clock @ Benchill when auntie was moved from Dinmoor Road.
My son is so settled here and loves all the staff. He is so happy there and shouts "go nursery" surely this is a good sign. In 2013 I added my daughter to Dinmoor Road which she loved! Then in 2015 I put my son in their day care. I must say they really are supportive and efficient. This nursery works around reality, not 9-5. Also, I would like to thank the lovely owner, she's absolutely fab and always willing to help. Honestly, I'm so grateful for all the hard work and long shifts you guys do, don't think it goes unnoticed! Also, uncle, the nurseries chauffeur is absolutely brill and my son absolutely loves him! A fantastic family run business!
Thank you. Xx
