Reviews

8 In2play Creative Pre-School has a Review Score of 8 (8.013)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for In2play Creative Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for In2play Creative Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.805 for In2play Creative Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.805

  • 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 3.208 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for In2play Creative Pre-School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.208

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

Reviewer Connection to In2play Creative Pre-School

The In2Play creative pre-school was absolutely fantastic for my son. The staff are patient, kind, calm and nurturing. There are different activities every day and each child is encouraged to be themselves. The same staff have been there since the preschool opened which I think speaks volumes for the excellent management. I can't wait for my daughter to start, I wouldn't consider anywhere else.

I found this nursery after despairing that I would ever find a setting for my daughter that felt 'right'. We moved from another area and she had been happily settled at her nursery for two years so it was a daunting prospect to start afresh. From the first day my daughter loved the nursery thanks to the wonderful staff and their warmth and creativity. She came home with more brilliant artwork and craft than she had in the whole time at her previous nursery. I couldn't recommend this nursery more highly.

The pre-school has so much to offer an inquisitive three-year-old. All members of staff have been with the pre school from day one, they are all so committed to their job and really take the time to connect with the children. They have fresh fruit and healthy snacks offered throughout the day. The doors to the garden are always open, if a child wants to play outside come rain or shine then so be it. I couldn't recommend In2play enough.

After being let down by our nursery of choice for my son, we found In2play just as it opened. My son joined them during their second week but found settling difficult. The manager and staff went above and beyond what I had expected from them, resulting in my son gaining confidence, to the point where he absolutely loved the days he attended, becoming upset on weekends when he couldn't go to pre-school.
He formed an amazing bond with his keyworker but was equally attached to all the staff. He has now moved onto reception class at school and following his first parents evening, his new teacher has praised his confidence and credited this to his pre-school experience. He absolutely adored every minute of his time at In2play and it was well worth the effort to travel from St Leonards to Ore everyday for him to attend. The preschool has continued to evolve and progress according to the individual children attending and manages to make every child feel as though they are loved and cared for.

My son attends this preschool and I cannot recommend it enough. From the first visit my son loved it and was very settled. The staff are lovely and friendly and nurturing. Relaxed atmosphere with lots of fun learning. My son has extra needs and the nursery has been so brilliant with him and open to doing anything that will benefit him. I feel completely relaxed leaving him in their care and so does he which is amazing as we struggle even with family. They really get to know and celebrate your child as an individual. I love their approach to learning through being creative and being hands on with messy play which the kids love. My son has come on leaps and bounds since starting and it's all down to their patience, understanding and care. This is a great place for any child to attend to learn through fun and get a great start before school.

This setting has been absolutely wonderful for my daughter. It's a kind and relaxed learning environment that is overflowing with creativity! She came on leaps and bounds in the time she was there and made lots of friends in the children and staff. The child centred and child led learning has been perfect to get her ready for primary school and she is now thriving there thanks to this preschool and I'm planning on using this setting when my younger child is old enough too.

Last November I stumbled across this gem of a nursery, on our first visit my daughter was so impressed she took her coat off and asked to stay. My first impression 'wow, how can a setting be so calm!?'. The manager and her team have the ability to create a really nurturing environment alongside providing fun, interesting and creative activities to engage children. All staff treat the children with respect and every child was celebrated for his or hers uniqueness, staff were approachable and eager to share daily observations of my child. I also loved the free flow aspect to the nursery, the option of children being able to independently order from the cafe upstairs and the access to the adventure playground - which is an amazing space for them to explore. I looked at other nurseries in the area and having worked as an early years practitioner for the last 7 years I was blown away! My daughter is now at school but I am now keen to secure a place for my younger child.
