The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Children 1st @ Leek First School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Children 1st @ Leek First School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 3 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 4.639 for Children 1st @ Leek First School is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.639

  • 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 3.969 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Children 1st @ Leek First School is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.469

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

My 3-year-old loves the staff at this preschool, she has taken a special shine to her key worker who is excellent with my daughter. I find all the staff so friendly and approachable, always stop to say hello and tell me what my daughter has been up to.

This is the first time my daughter has ever been in early years setting so she was worried (as was I) and upset about going, but the staff have been so great settling her in.

The preschool is bright and spacious with a nice outdoor area.My daughter always has lots to tell me when I pick her up with all the fun things she gets up too and the friends she's made.
I would recommend this preschool to anybody after childcare.

My son is always excited to go to nursery and always tells me he's had a nice time. He is also encouraged to try his lunches which I find very reassuring as he is very fussy. Which is why I like the diversity of the menu.
