    • 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 4.854 for House of Eden Cobblers Hall is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.854

      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.

My son is already 3 years old and he started going to this nursery since he was 6 months old - in that space of time, we have seen how he grown to become a confident young man, and very active too! He spends most of the weekdays here as we both work, and the staff has been brilliant in nurturing and supporting his development overall. We get feedbacks regularly and we both definitely can depend on the staff here at the nursery.
It's great to know that they try to develop the children with a holistic attitude, and I'm also very thankful of how the staff and management has been very helpful especially in the dietary requirements of my son. He definitely enjoys the sports sessions, as well as the singing and reading times. His speech and social interaction has grown by leaps and bounds!
I would highly recommend this nursery to parents who would like to see their children develop and achieve their potential!

All 3 of my children have attended this nursery from 6 months old. The staff are amazing and really go out of their way to make sure your child is safe, secure and in a loving caring environment. There are always so many events and activities going on along with everyday nursery activities that gives parents an opportunity to get involved with their children's development. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to every parent. My eldest is 8 and still loves his after school pick ups that bring him back into the bubbly friendly buzz of the nursery environment at Cobblers hall.

Extremely helpful well trained staff who are completely dedicated to the well being and welfare of the children in their care and the relationship with their parents.
I would recommend this day nursery to any parent looking for trust in the care of their child as well as a friendly caring environment. The nursery has an equal mix of indoor and outdoor play and has the play/learning balance just right.

I have been using House of Eden Nursery for over 7 years and they have helped turn my 2 into confident, articulate, adventurous kids. Staff are great, and many have been there for those 7 years, a recommendation in itself. They encourage outdoor play, messy is no problem inside or out, and they love a good sing song! The onsite chef makes sure of a healthy, filling meal everyday, with seconds if required.
