Harmony House Childhood Centre in Dagenham, Essex offers a nursery for children aged three months to five-years-old.

A combination of full, part-time and sessional care is offered to parents.

It aims to be flexible, within reason, in responding to parents’ needs.

The centre aims to offer places to children from the local community from a range of backgrounds and cultures. Many children at the centre have a home language that is not English. The team includes staff who can speak French, Spanish, Dutch, Lingala, Kinyarwanda, Twi, Turkish or Greek. While recognising the importance of a child becoming familiar with the English language, staff also encourage parents to ensure their child does not forget their parents' language.

Crèche places are available for children whose parents are taking courses in the adjoining adult education centre.

    The Review Score of 8.421 for Harmony House Childhood Centre is based on 8 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.418 for Harmony House Childhood Centre is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 91 Ratings = 4.418

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. 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 care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

      The Quantity Score of 4.003 for Harmony House Childhood Centre is calculated as follows:

      1. 8 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 8 Positive Reviews = 0.800

      3. (8 Positive Reviews ÷ 79 Children) x 2 = 0.203

In my opinion this nursery is really good. The staff support the children really nicely. I can see my son is learning a lot. I'm really happy with my choice I couldn't have chosen better than Harmony House.

My daughter has been attending Harmony House Childhood Centre for 2 months following in the footsteps of her big brother. I have seen her develop in leaps and bounds. Her speech is clearer. She sings and dances. She attempts to make use of a pen and even tidies up after herself. For an 18motnh old, I am very pleased with how far she has come. I believe the staff and activities have gone a long way in also helping her establish her independence. I would highly recommend Harmony House Childhood Centre

I have seen great improvement in my children's development since they started attending Harmony House Childhood Centre. The staff are great and caring. They are hard working, they also involve the parent/carers to participate in home focus activities with the children. It is a good and spacious environment for children to play. They also have a lot of resources and toys for children to play with. I will recommend Harmony House Childhood Centre to any parent/carer looking from nursery.
