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 4.802 for Cherubs Kimberley is calculated as follows: ( (487 Excellents x 5) + (83 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 582 Ratings = 4.802

      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 5 for Cherubs Kimberley is calculated as follows:

      1. 49 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 49 Positive Reviews = 4.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (49 Positive Reviews ÷ 90 Children) x 2 = 1.089 (maximum score = 1)

Inspirational leadership. The manager's enthusiasm for learning and developing new ideas shows no bounds. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. My son has always looked forward to going to nursery and said he has had a good day. Staff embrace challenges, like the progress to potty training, with confidence and realism which makes me feel secure and happy that my son is in good hands.

Wonderful caring staff and an exciting building and play areas make this perfect for my animal loving daughter. The managers and staff have a clear vision as to what they are trying to achieve and even though my daughter is in the youngest age group she is given lots of opportunities to try new things and experiences a range of activities. I know she is well cared for and she clearly feels that too, so much say she'll say her care worker's name but still not Mummy! (I'm not taking it personally!) On top of all this there are ducks to say hello and goodbye to every day. A perfect place for us all.

Cherubs Kimberley is an amazing nursery. My son has just left to move onto primary school. Cherubs have nurtured all of my sons abilities and helped to give him new abilities. I truly believe he wouldn't be the boy he is today were it not for this nursery - I actually held him back a year for them to continue with the great work they were doing, and that has been the best decision I have made about his life to date. The staff are all lovely and the setting is fantastic -there's a lovely vibe to the place, you can both see and feel the heart that has gone into it by the wonderful manager.
It's big, lots of space, facilities and equipment are good, there are lots of animals and even a beach to play on. On many occasions my son has cried at home time because he wanted to stay longer, which speaks absolute volumes. Highly recommended and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved in my sons pre-school years, we will be forever grateful for everything and we will miss you all a lot.

My little boy has been going to Cherubs since he was 9 months old, and he is now 21 months. From the beginning he settled in very well, and has clearly always been happy at nursery. The staff are all brilliant with him, they have an excellent variety of good, home cooked food, and a great range of play activities. The nursery has been excellent at providing childcare flexibly as I can work on different days from week to week. The manager is very nice, easy to contact and very approachable. They have allowed me to return to work safe in the knowledge that he is well cared for and happy, and I honestly couldn't ask for more.

Provision of homemade food is fantastic. The staff have worked well with my child to settle him in and each room we have found a few members of staff that have alwasy gone that extra step with him. I am more than happy to name people if you find the informtaion useful. Extra activities are talked about often with large smiles. The mini zoo outside is magical especially in the earlier room, a great distration when there wasnt mum or dad. Also amazed at how they are alwasy rejinventing spaces in and outside :)

My experience of Cherubs nursery and the staff has been great. Our daughter has settled in so well and has come on so much despite me only working part time. She loves socialising with the others and always has lots of little stories to tell me when she comes home.My daughter especially loves and talks about her key worker.

My son has attended Cherubs Kimberley once a week (full day) since he was 7 months old. He's now almost 3 and asked if he could add another day! He has so much fun and is so at home he has more fun than being with mummy now. He gets so excited in the car park because he knows its his days at nursery. I can't thank them enough for taking such good care of him and making his days so much fun.

My child attends cherubs Kimberly 2 full days a week, she loves coming to nursery and is very settled, she always asks to come to nursery and play with friends. Her development and social skills have come on extremely well, staff are excellent at identifying her personal needs and interests, they are all happy and listen to any concerns or worries I may have. I've looked at other nurseries and they all seem poor in comparison. As a first time mum staff have been very helpful and made us feel very welcome.

Kimberley nursey is a very welcoming nursery. Always there to help. My nephew seems very happy and loves coming to nursery. All the staff are always happy and make us feel happy to leave. The outside area is fantastic and we love the animals and helps the children develop different activities. The nursery is always clean and tidy and plenty of information us given out. Also the staff help with development and show parents everything they have been doing like learning journeys and mini observations.

My nephew attends the setting on a Thurs and a Fri and absolutely loves it!! I pick him up quite regular as Mum works late, but hes always so excited to tell me about what hes been doing all day! His favourite thing at the minute seems to be the beach. The nursery offers such a wide range of indoor and outdoor equipment enough to keep my nephew on his toes!! I as an Aunt couldn't be more happier with every staff member at the setting, their hard work is really appreciated within my family :) x

My child was there just over a year. He had three key workers (2 of which were OK) within the first 6 months. My usually outgoing child had become an elective mute. Management did not listen to me and referred my child to speech therapy. This was a waste of an overstretched service's time. My son is now at a new nursery and chattering away.

Sarah Savage, Company Operations Manager at Cherubs Kimberley responded to this review on 08 Mar 2016:

We are extremely disappointed that you were unhappy with the service at the nursery, which is thankfully a rare occurrence. Had the complaints procedure been followed prior to handing in your notice, we could have fully investigated, then addressed any concerns you had and rectified them to your satisfaction, which may have enabled you to continue to use the nursery. We value all feedback and act promptly to address any issues our parents may have.

Cherubs is an excellent nursery. I would highly recommend it to family and friends. My daughter is always excited about going to nursery every morning, which shows how warm and welcoming the staff are there. I always get excellent feedback when I come to pick her up and get to see what she has been up to on their facebook page which is a great idea. I've been using this nursery for the past 7 years as my son also went here and think the staff are fantastic!

I am really pleased with the nursery. I feel my child is well looked after and cared for by all the staff. She is taught new things and things I may not think to teach her or in a different way to how we would at home. The facilities are amazing, my child loves being outdoors which is one reason why I chose this nursery, plus all the animals. The staff are all very friendly and happy to talk about the days activities and answer any concerns. They are also available to email and always reply really quickly. My little one settled in really well and has done as she has moved up to different rooms, this is done gradually which helps. The menu is vast and my child always eats it all!

My daughter has attended Cherubs Day Nursery 3-4 days a week since she was approximately 7 months old. She is now 2 and has thrived during her time here so far. She is a happy, funny, confident and outgoing child and I feel this is largely due to the input and guidance from the staff at Cherubs. Every effort is always made to accommodate any wishes or preferences you have for your child and the environment is home from home. The outdoor facilities are fantastic and the animals are wonderful and loved by all the children. I am due to have twins in April and will be sending them both to Cherubs safe in the knowledge that they will be happy and develop wonderfully within this environment, I have highly recommended Cherubs to other parents and will continue to do so in the future.

My son has come on well in preschool, developing his communication skills. He takes part in the extra sessions (dance and multi-skills) put on by nursery. He's never not wanted to go to nursery in the mornings and has made lots of friends who he socialises with outside of nursery. We usually get weekly targets to fill in with our own comments from home which we like to do because it keeps us involved in his development. The manager is wonderful with the children and shows that she knows every single of of them, providing opportunities for the setting to move forwards. We would be happy to pay for extra visits out if there were more on offer.

Has a parent leaving your child in someone else's care is the hardest thing to do, from the first visit until now the staff at cherubs Kimberley have always made me feel safe and secure in the care of my daughter, and best of all she loves her visits. thank you cherubs Kimberley Rachel and her staff are fantastic.

The staff are very caring and attentive and tailor care to my sons needs. I have no concerns with their care or education of my son and am happily starting my second son there in just over a month.

My son has attended Cherubs from 9 months and will leave for school in September. The staff have been really supportive from those super hard initial weeks, when leaving your baby feels so wrong, through to preparing my big boy for school with visits by his new class teacher.
He's made some wonderful friends and has developed great social skills. He's learnt through play at his own pace and has opportunities to play inside and outside in some wonderful spaces. I've always felt that he was in a safe and caring environment and would not hesitate to recommended Cherubs to all.

After being redundant it resulted in reducing my daughter hours, the team at Cherubs were very understanding and supportive at the situation, compassionate and helpful through that time and very attentive to myself and my daughter. When it came to discussions regards to increasing her hours back a few options were proposed but staggered days encouraged as best option with my daughters best interest being the priority. I have always found the staff at Cherubs very friendly and helpful.

Cherubs is very professional and fun

I've found since she's moved in to Snowdrops that she's more confident and happier. She's always coming home showing me and dad new things/words she's learnt. We've started potty training her and the staff have been so supportive. They encourage her in all aspects, they are very friendly - if you have concerns they go out of their way to help resolve them! However since her move to Snowdrops there has rarely been any concerns.

A warm and friendly nursery that takes good care of my children.

Cherubs, Kimberley is a lovely nursery that I've been really happy to use for both my boys. My eldest was born with a few medical problems which they accommodated with great care and sensitivity. He really shone in his time there and loved the staff. He now enjoys their after school club. My youngest is one and a half. He returns from his days happy, tired and well fed!

I recommend Cherubs Kimberley as this nursery is very well managed, the staff are really nice and professional and from the minute you walk into the gate it is a magical wonderland with animals, fruit trees, wooden furniture and this continues into the setting with lovely art from the children. Welcoming environment and the staff are 100% all for the children in their care.

My eldest 2 children attended the nursery and received excellent care. All staff cared for my children and they enjoyed their time here. This is why I chose Cherubs again for my youngest daughter, as I was confident she would be looked after and cared for. She enjoys her time there and can't wait to get there.

My daughter started at the nursery at 14 months old. She settled in really well thanks to the good care and attention the staff gave her. As she got older she would say eagerly 'am I going to nursery today?' Her confidence blossomed, she made lots of friends adored the staff and now at 5 years old attends the holiday club.

I can not recommend this nursery enough. The manager and all the staff are bursting with enthusiasm and nothing is too much trouble. My daughter enjoys her time there and enjoys a great variety of activities. Having visited all the nurseries in this area I chose this one over all the others. The outdoor space and animals helped me with the decision. The communication is good and I like the fact they go out the way to make her time there special. They have brought my daughter's speech on, table manners and manners in general on!

An amazing setting

My children started with the setting in 2008 at the nursery and then when they left to go to school they attend the wrap around and holiday club services.
The setting is family orientated and the staff are friendly, approachable and genuine want to offer the very best child care and education, offering positive play experiences where children can explore their thoughts and ideas with professional, passionate and caring staff on hand to support, teach and guide. I would highly recommend this setting to any families looking for quality genuine childcare.
