Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.928 for Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Exeter, Matford Green is calculated as follows: ( (558 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 597 Ratings = 4.928

  • 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 Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Exeter, Matford Green is based on 32 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 20 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.

I am very pleased with this nursery. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. My son is always excited to attend and runs off through the door to play. The children go outside into the large garden everyday, and regularly go off site for walks or to visit the nearby car dealerships. The children are kept busy all day and my son flakes out in bed quickly after a day at nursery. The food always sounds yummy too.

I have been extremely impressed with every element of this nursery from my first visit onwards. The standard of care is excellent. My daughter is very happy here and I feel that she is safe, secure, and enjoying the wonderful activities. She has learned so much and has a lovely time. The food is freshly prepared, nutritious and tasty. My questions are always answered and I am made to feel welcome and included in my daughter's day. All the staff are caring and supportive and every aspect of the nursery has been very well thought through and delivered to very high standards. I can't recommend this nursery highly enough.

My little one loves going to nursery. She is comfortable with the staff who are always smiling and happy to see her.

She has really come along with her development since starting nursery as she wants to keep up with all the other children.

Staff are friendly and always happy to help with any questions we have.

The nursery is extremely well staffed and well equipped and offers an inclusive and broad spectrum of activities, both play-based and educational for pre-school children. The environment is bright and friendly and the staff are never anything other than enthusiastic and welcoming - they clearly all love their jobs. Having placed my son at other nurseries in the town previously, I can safely say that Kiddi Caru at Matford has the rest beaten, hands down. 10/10.

The nursery at Matford Green is simply one of the highest order; the building is new and in perfect order, being designed specifically for the purpose of a nursery, both indoors and out (the garden is incredible). The facilities are kept perfect, the toys are new and in good order, the equipment likewise. The staff are trained to the highest standard, and seem to genuinely enjoy being there and working with each other; likewise, the overall programs for the children are well balanced and a good fit between educational and fun.

My daughter has attended this nursery since she was four months old. I have found the staff to be caring and attentive to her every need she has developed extremely well and now being nine months old she is far ahead of where we were expecting her to be, I can only contribute to this to the care and skill of the staff at this nursery. My daughter attends this nursery four days a week and every day she is there she is always happy when she arrives, she always looks for her primary carer with great smiles on her face and excitement.
I feel happy and at ease leaving my child under the care of the staff and I would highly recommend Kiddi Caru to all my friends and family.
I truly believe that his nursery provides the best start in life for young minds.

My son has attended Kiddi Caru Matford for around a year and I can happily say I feel it is the best childcare provider in Exeter! My son cannot wait to get to preschool in the mornings and he always comes home full of stories and anecdotes from his exciting days. The staff are wonderful and in particular, his key workers who work so hard to encourage development and preparation for school through structured play. My son's nutrition is very well catered for even going as far as getting to sample traditional Chinese cuisine to celebrate Chinese New Year last week. We will miss Kiddi Caru and all the wonderful staff very much when my son starts school in September this year!

My little boy has attended Kiddi Caru in Matford for 2 days a week since he was 14 weeks old. As a new Mom heading back to work full time and having a little one so young, I couldn’t have been made to feel any more at ease. From the moment you enter the nursery to the second you leave, the staff, the ambience, the environment, the interaction - all are first class! My little boy loves it and I wouldn’t put him anywhere else.

This is a very high-quality early years setting which is run very professionally. The indoor and outdoor facilities are of excellent standard and well maintained. The staff are friendly, warm and considerate and all have developed strong relationships with my daughter, making her feel secure and happy whilst she is with them. Her key worker, in particular, has shown that she truly cares about the children she looks after and she has played an important role in how much my daughter enjoys her time at nursery. My daughter loves attending Kiddi Caru so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Choosing a nursery for the first time is a daunting prospect. The list of requirements is long and you hope and pray that your little one enjoys the time that he/she spends there. I can safely say that Kiddi Caru Matford has pretty much ticked all of our boxes and after the inevitably tricky settling in period my little boy loves his time there!
The facilities are top class, the key carers are friendly, welcoming and professional and we’re never in doubt that our boy is learning and experiencing more every time that he attends. We’re also safe in the knowledge that he is being fed a variety of fresh and healthy food. I have recommended Kiddi Caru Day Nursery Exeter, Matford Green to many friends and won’t hesitate to do so in the future!

My daughter always smiles when she is taken into nursery and is never bothered when I leave her, usually asking/reaching to go to her carers.
Exceptional facilities including equipment, food and even items to take home to support your child's growth. The activities on offer to the children are beyond measure.
The facilities and rooms are always clean, (without fail) and everything is kept to a very high standard.
I love that I can see how clean the kitchen is and the menus on offer are fresh and nutritious.
The staff are always happy and have never let me down with any of my (at times) ridiculous requests.
Communication between staff and parents is phenomenal, never have I asked about a part of my daughter's day that they haven't been able to tell me what she was doing.
I feel safe leaving my child as security is greater than that of Fort Knox- without ever feeling less than friendly.
They excel in every aspect and truly offer my daughter the best start in life.

I can't fault the facilities and staff at the nursery. My daughter started there at 10 months when I went back to work and the staff worked so hard to help her to settle and she now loves going in. She has always done lots of fun activities during the day and greets me with a massive smile when I collect her.

Wonderful nursery, my daughter started at 11 months and settled straight away. The staff are always so welcoming and I feel that she has always had an interesting day! Lots of varied activities, reading, painting, messy play and a superb garden and sensory room. The rooms are so well thought out for each age group and are always clean and well maintained, good security system so any worries I had about leaving my daughter at the nursery were quickly dispelled.

Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. 10/10

The nursery is highly flexible meeting our needs. The environment is stimulating yet calming and welcoming. The play equipment and resources are thoughtful, creative and inspire imaginative play (instead of plastic noisy toys).
The staff are very helpful and creative in how to best settle my clingy (though lovely) daughter. Staff are warm in nature, supportive and have a lovely way with the children.
Incredibly clean, lovely food which is tasty and nutritious.

My two-year-old son joined Kiddi Caru, Matford at the beginning of August and I'm really happy with the care he receives. He was very anxious when he started, but all of the staff have been brilliant with him, especially his key worker. They have helped him to settle in and he's becoming more confident. Would definitely recommend this nursery to everyone!

Kiddi Caru has given my 3-year-old son an amazing learning and nurturing environment since he began there in March 2017.

The outdoor space is outstanding. He loves the staff and other children. The food is superb and he is eating a lot more than he used to. My son has some delay in his speech and Kiddi Caru have worked hard with him and I have seen improvements already.

Our son started here in the baby room in January. We could not ask for more. Free settle sessions allowed our son to get used to the environment and the staff, and allowed us to see what the nursery was like for ourselves. The staff in the baby room are excellent and quickly got to know our child individually. They know what he likes and doesn't like, notice small changes in him and have a good attention to detail. Our son has built a rapport the staff and we can see that he loves seeing them. They are friendly and informal yet professional, a great balance for working with children and communicating with parents. Our son particularly enjoys the food, which is well varied and gives us inspiration for at home. When we are at work, we feel secure in the knowledge that our son is being cared for in the best possible way by people who have a genuine passion for working with children. We highly recommend a visit for anyone looking for a great start for their child.

I cannot praise Kiddi Caru Matford enough. We have looked at other surrounding nurseries and they are incomparable with Kiddi Caru. The staff are generally lovely and really take care and have a great interest in your children. They are actually happy to be there - I have been to others and they don't want to be at work! All the staff are welcoming and willing to assist with anything. I did worry about the cost of the nursery, however, I cannot stress that you get what you pay for! Worth every single penny.
The nursery itself is lovely and clean - one of the many things I am very fussy about! There are so many activities to do inside and outside (lovely garden!!). I was so worried about where to place my daughter and just found Kiddi Caru the best place to be. Although she is part time, she has been thriving since we've been going. I love receiving pictures and things they have made.

My son started in the baby room in September 2016. We were initially amazed by the environment and resources. Since joining we have been extremely pleased with the opportunities that have arisen, for example, access daily to a state of the art sensory room which is ideal before he could walk. He has been taken out to the local national reserve and cattle market and provided ample opportunity to play outside. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. I have every trust in them and firmly believe that my son is well cared for. He loves going to nursery and our thanks go out to all the staff for this.

This could genuinely be the best nursery in the country! Yes, for this area it is expensive but you can see where every penny is spent. From the efficient management to the fantastic room leaders and carers, to the facilities and the food, all simply outstanding. The toys, garden area and technology are second to none. The majority of the toys are wooden and even those that aren't, are very good quality. The garden - which is used daily - is beautifully designed to encourage play and social skills - it really needs to be seen to appreciate. I wish I could play in it. A specific mention has to be for the ladies looking after my daughter. I don't have a bad word to say about any of them. Exactly the sort of people I want my daughter to grow up with as role models.

I couldn't recommend Kiddi Caru enough. My daughter has been to both of the Exeter nurseries and I think they are both fantastic. The Matford one is new and very much state of the art. I love all the wooden toys that they have and the sensory room. My daughter is very much an outdoor girl and the garden is just amazing for her. There is so much to do but still lots of space to run around and burn off all her energy. The staff are lovely, friendly and very welcoming. My daughter has come on so much since she started with Kiddi Caru. They have helped her development but it a natural non-pushy way and I love that they discuss the next stages of their development path with your child so you can continue it at home.

Overall, this is an excellent nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend. The incentive to recommend a friend that they are running is an added bonus as well. I, without a doubt, will be sending my second daughter to Kiddi Caru when she's here and old enough!

My Grandson loves going to nursery here, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. There is always a large range of activities for the children and the toys are amazing. My grandson's speech and communication skills have improved so much since he started and I've noticed he interacts really well with other children now.

Absolutely love Kiddi Caru, from the building to the staff. My daughter enjoys her nursery days here so much. She has come along extremely well since being here and I feel very happy that I can go to work and know she is in good hands. A+ all round :)

We do not go that often to pick our grandson up from nursery, but when we do go, we can honestly say we are impressed with the staff. They come across very caring and our grandson has been there since day one and is very happy there.
Sat in one day for lunch and was very impressed with the food they were given.
The equipment is amazing and my daughter's opinion is that they could not have found a better nursery.

My experience at this nursery has been nothing but positive. As an anxious parent with an unsettled child, we have been offered so many extra sessions to help my daughter settle in and the staff have been Amazing. They have made the experience so positive for both myself and daughter. They are fantastic and the facilities are amazing. I would definitely recommend visiting the setting, and guarantee you will be more than satisfied with the visit! Thank you for being such a supportive setting for both of us!!

The nursery is a lovely place. My daughter loves coming here.
The facilities are fantastic and very well equipped for children of different ages. My daughter's days are always different and she has now tried lots of activities we would not have done at home.
The staff are so warm and friendly and the communication with home brilliant, they really look after the children and form good bonds with them.
I would always recommend this nursery. I couldn't ask for a better place or better people to look after my daughter.

My 2-year-old son loves attending here. We feel extremely confident that he is well looked after and is receiving the best care and nurture possible. The staff are friendly and professional at all times. The environment is outstanding with superb resources and provision both indoors and outdoors. We would definitely highly recommend this setting and would not consider sending him anywhere else.

Our son has been attending this nursery for about a month and absolutely loves it. The staff have been brilliant so far, they are friendly, welcoming and show a genuine interest in our son and us. The facilities are brilliant and he has always had a great day. The home contact book keeps us informed and we like reading about what he has done. The staff always have time to tell us what he has been doing that day as well. The newsletters are great. We are very happy with the experience we have had.

A wonderful nursery, my 2-year-old little boy has settled really well and loves going - he can be very quiet and reserved with new situations but his confidence has grown massively since he started. Before starting he had a settling period where he was able to go for short visits to get to know his carers and they were more than happy to accommodate as many sessions as we needed. We were also invited to lots of stay and play sessions such as a sensory morning so he was very familiar with the nursery before he started.
The staff are welcoming and friendly and he has formed lovely bonds with them all, they have all taken the time to get to know him really well. The nursery itself is state of the art with amazing facilities and equipment, the garden and sensory room are particularly outstanding. I have complete confidence when leaving him that he is safe, secure and being looked after by well qualified, caring staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to other families.
