  • 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 4.811 for Christopher Robin Day Nursery - Burpham is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.811

      • 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 4.5 for Christopher Robin Day Nursery - Burpham is calculated as follows:

      1. 11 Positive Reviews = 3

Thank you so much, Joanna, for your ongoing support.

We have selected this nursery for both our sons, initially due to its location and fabulous outdoor space especially. Both our sons have been very happy here and enjoyed a variety of activities every day. The staff are fantastic and turnover is low which has meant consistency for our boys. The nursery is innovative and constantly changing, developing and updating its areas. We particularly love the outdoor space and the fact that the children go out in all weathers if they want to twice per day and even enjoy meals outside in warmer weather. Would highly recommend to other parents and have done.

Thank you so much, Anup, for taking the time to write us such as positive review, it means a lot to the team.

We are super happy with how our son is developing at this nursery. We are kept well informed at each stage by receiving regular and full reports and pictures. The staff are so friendly and caring that I am completely confident leaving our son with them. The facilities are great and the planned activities vary depending on the time of year and any special days. We love the flexibility Christopher Robin Day Nursery provides which is something we know other nurseries don't provide.

Thank you Elizabeth for taking the time to write us a really positive review. Your feedback is invaluable to us and we really respect and appreciate your comments.

The nursery is wonderful. I have 2 children who have attended since they were 5 months old and it has taken all the heartache out of returning to work. Both children love coming in and name the staff and other children as friends. The staff are well trained and supportive and have a flexible child specific approach to their care.

Hi Felicity, thank you so much for your warm words and positive feedback!

Our daughter recently moved to the preschool room- Tiggers- we have noticed significant changes to her manners and understanding of the world. We cannot speak more highly of the staff in the room. The manager is impeccable with the smooth running of such a professional, clean and trustworthy nursery.

Thank you A G for your kind feedback. We are so delighted to hear that you are happy with the setting and I will pass your warm words on to the nursery team.

The nursery workers have a lot of love to give to all the babies, toddlers and children. Each room is large with plenty of toys which the children are free to play with whenever they want. The garden is large and access is free-flow, meaning the children can choose when they want to go outside (great for high-energy running about). The garden has lots of interesting areas all providing fun and interactive play. There is a gentle routine based around 3 meals a day with making afternoon snacks which is a relief to know everyone is being well fed. My little boy has been at the nursery for just over a year and loves it.

Thank you so much, Rachel, for taking the time to write us such as positive review, it means a lot to the team.

both my children have attended and loved this nursery. It is caring and supportive but also encourages independent play, learning, and development. Both my children felt safe here and responded well to the staff and ate well from a varied menu. My daughter (3) speaks basic French because of this nursery and like my son (now 5 and in Yr 1 at school) has a strong independent foundation for their education.

Thank you so much, Karen, for your ongoing support.

Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time at nursery and we've noticed that he has really developed in only 3 months.
The staff are absolutely brilliant - so caring and patient, and they made the whole experience of leaving my little boy much easier.

Hi Katherine, thank you so much for your kind words and positive feedback- it's wonderful to hear!

What an amazing nursery, my son started here when he was 7 months old and stayed until 4 years when he was ready for school. My son learnt so much at Christopher Robin and he had such a good relationship with all his teachers.

Hi N M, thank you for your ongoing support!

My daughter was here for 3 years and loved it! They were very family orientated and their pastoral care was excellent. The staff were very friendly and built strong bonds with the children. The outdoor space is a huge asset to the nursery. We were extremely sad to leave but would have no hesitation in recommending Christopher Robin Day Nursery.
