Reviews

8.9 Play and Learn Ltd Nursery has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.946)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Play and Learn Ltd Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Play and Learn Ltd Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.567 for Play and Learn Ltd Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.567

  • 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 4.379 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Play and Learn Ltd Nursery is based on 5 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 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.379

  • 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 Play and Learn Ltd Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My child has been attending Play and Learn since 2015, since attending all members of the family can see a massive difference in confidence and ability. My daughter used to attend for 3 days a week and now due to work commitments she attends 4 consecutive days. She often asks on her day off if she can go to nursery. My daughter was 8 weeks premature when born and I had concerns about sending her to nursery as I was worried about the support she would get, I have to say it's been amazing, her confidence and social skills have improved and she has a great relationship with the staff who she comes home and talks about.
I love the fact that she comes home with things shes made and they are displayed on the wall for everyone to see.

I can't thank the staff enough for the support they have given my daughter in getting her to where she is today. We are really happy we also get to take part in events and sessions held at the nursery.

Thank you Danielle, we enjoy supporting your daughter to build confidence in different situations and having an input in her learning and development.

My daughter has been going to Play and Learn for 2 years since she was 13 months old. From the moment that I was shown around the nursery, it was clear that they place the happiness and the development of each child at the centre of everything they do. They place a big emphasis on learning through play, and in my view, this is really effective. I’m beyond pleased with the rate of my daughter's development, but more importantly, she is really happy at the nursery. She currently attends 3 days a week, but frequently asks to go on her days off!

The staff are fantastic and clearly enjoy what they do. They give detailed feedback at the end of each day, an annual parents evening and regular opportunities for you to get involved with activities which is a nice way to observe your child in the setting.
The setting itself is fantastic, with a nice indoor and outdoor space for all.

Thank you so much, Kate, that's lovely to hear! It is a pleasure to have your daughter in our setting and to work in partnership with such caring parents.

I moved my oldest daughter to Play and Learn Ltd Nursery when she was nearly 4 years old in September 2016. She had been going to a previous nursery from when she was 9 months. I was amazed by the immediate change to her personal development, she blossomed due to the love and attention she received from the staff. She has since moved on to formal education and greatly misses the nursery. This gave me the confidence to enrol my youngest in February 2017 at the age of 10 months. She absolutely loves it there, has settled in beautifully and her development is outstanding thanks to the staff. Excellent nursery, I would highly recommend it!

Thank you, Doris, your eldest daughter is hugely missed since going to school and your youngest is blooming into such a lovely character.

My experience with the nursery is very good. From my point of view is a very good nursery. I'm pleased about staff and care provided to my son.

Staff is welcoming, very friendly and helpful. My son is always happy when I'm taking him home.

While my son has been at Play and Learn Ltd Nursery (2.5 years) he has been very happy and his development has been on track.

I've been pleased with the level of care given and would recommend this setting to other parents.
