The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Kids Around The Clock @ Woodhouse Park 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kids Around The Clock @ Woodhouse Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 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 4.878 for Kids Around The Clock @ Woodhouse Park is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.878

  • 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 4.733 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kids Around The Clock @ Woodhouse Park 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.733

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

Since my daughter has been diagnosed as autistic, the ladies at Kids Around The Clock have been great. They have all been super supportive, helped with information when needed and been great with our daughter. They are a really helpful and almost feel like extended family as I know I can depend on them for all 3 of our girls to be safe and happy. I would always recommend and would give 20/10 if possible!

Cannot fault the staff here, the things they have done for my daughter and myself, and the help they've provided us personally with her - I'll always be so grateful for them. They have taught my daughter to speak better after she had delayed speech issues due to glue ear, always shown an interest in her well-being and care, informed me on everything. If you're thinking of letting your child come here I cannot recommend enough. The staff are wonderful, the setting is fantastic, I cannot thank KATC enough!!

My daughter attends nursery and I've seen her grow with the help of Kids Around The Clock staff, I'm very proud of them. My girl loves them all, she hardly warms to anyone but the warmth provided in KATC @ Woodhouse Park Nursery, made her settle. She has shown so much development in literacy, numeracy and even co ordination. Thank you ever so much to everyone.

My child loves this nursery. He attends in the morning and afternoon as he is taken and picked up from school. You can see the joy and happiness in him when he interacts with the staff.

Staff are very friendly and show concern towards my child's wellbeing.

My little boy has attended this nursery since he was 1years old, he is now 4. He is growing into a lovely, kind, well mannered little boy thanks to KATC. He attends full time and each day is different. He comes home with a different story to tell me, new words, learning his numbers, name, alphabet, activities and with full of excitement. KATC is a friendly, family atmosphere, the staff are approachable, even down to the owners of the nursery. My little boy was a shy, quiet child when he started. The staff have brought his personality out specially in front of people/children. He's not afraid to speak up, be loud etc. I will truly be sad to see him leave when he starts school in September, but I can say confidently KATC have got him ready to start school.

Kids Around The Clock is an outstanding nursery, My child has attended the Woodhouse Park setting since 2013 and still attends. All staff are extremely welcoming and make myself and my child feel supported, the management team are always willing to go the extra mile for their children and always value the child's voice and parent/carers opinion. When dropping and collecting my child, staff always inform me what she has been doing and what she enjoyed, their pictures are displayed around the nursery for all to see, these are important (so I think) as you can see that your child has enjoyed their time, if there are any issues they are always resolved before you leave that day.
