  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Clapham Day Nursery & Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 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 4.529 for Clapham Day Nursery & Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (219 Excellents x 5) + (150 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 384 Ratings = 4.529

  • 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 4.764 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clapham Day Nursery & Preschool is based on 11 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.764

This is a child centred and no-frills nursery where my child has felt at home. From day one they have taken care of her individual, educational and emotional needs.

My daughter was previously at another nursery but it took my daughter no time to get used to the new nursery and I have never looked back on my decision.

Dear Margherita, thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review for us. This kind of feedback is really useful and it's so good to know our wonderful team of practitioners helped make your sons transition into the nursery a smooth one.

Thanks again.

My son has been going to the nursery for the last four months. He's in the toddler room and he loves every second that he's there, even when he's not there, he asks to go. The manager is very, very good and he keeps his staff on their toes, making sure they are all doing their jobs properly. He's also very easy to speak to and has a good sense of humour. The staff are welcoming and really care for the children. I recommend this nursery to everyone.

Thank you very much for taking the time write this review. We are very proud of our manager and his team of practitioners, they do a great job and I am delighted to know that your son enjoys his time with us - it means a lot.
Again, thank you for the very positive feedback.

Our little girl enjoys going to nursery and seems very happy there.
Management does show some understanding of the child not being able to attend nursery on same days of the week, which is a nice touch.

Dear Agnes, thank you for the review. Glad to hear your daughter is happy and enjoying her time with us at the nursery. Its important to us that children, and parents, are content with our service
Thanks again for the review, much appreciated.

We visited many nurseries, and are quite happy we picked this one for our 11-month old, though it isn't that close to home for us.

Management and staff are very warm, welcoming and knowledgeable, You can tell they really care. Baby settled very easily, and we even learned some useful tricks to make life easier at home.

Very nice facilities, great toys and activities, smart nutrition, and flexible enough to accommodate our non-standard fluctuating schedules. We also really like the diversity of languages among babies and staff.

Cost isn't ridiculous, but a bit higher than other places. You get what you pay for though.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this review. It's great to know your child has settled at the nursery. Thanks again.

After reviewing a number of nurseries in the area we decided on Little Garden Clapham. Staff were very welcoming and thorough, they take time with the children and parents alike. The nursery feels like a family and all the staff know the children. Our daughter seems to love it and has developed her social skills, confidence and speech significantly. Most staff are enthusiastic and take the time to talk you through the day. Facilities are good and remain clean, tidy and organised. We feel very happy and confident in our choice for our daughter.

Dear Laura, thank you for taking the time write a review; we really do appreciate your feedback and the team will be delighted to read your very kind comments. I am delighted to know your daughter is doing well and enjoying her time at the nursery.

My daughter has attended the nursery for over a year now and she loves it. She is alway very keen to talk about her day, what she has learnt (for example she loves telling me new words she has learnt in the French class) and who she has played with etc. I have seen so many changes in my daughter and I love it! She has such a big personality and it means the world to me seeing her happy at nursery. I appreciate all the hard work and dedication from the staff members and management. The staff in my daughter class room communicate well with explaining how her day went and also caring for her in all ways needed.There are a good variety of activities set up and available for the children to engage to engage in.

Thank you.

Dear Simone, thank you so much for leaving this review. It's great to hear your positive feedback - the team will be thrilled. Again, thank you.

Our son has been at the nursery for three months and has settled in well. The staff are always welcoming, calm and he is always very happy to seem them.
Communication from the management team is regular and efficient and I love the newsletter that the parents receive about upcoming events at the nursery etc.
The baby room is very well managed and the staff always seem under control- no mean feat when you are trying to give breakfast to lots of toddlers. Our son is given healthy and varied food which is all prepared on site with no added sugar. There is a play area outside which the children seem to love.
Overall we are really pleased with Clapham Day Nursery & Preschool and I would happily recommend the nursery to other parents - a big thank you all the baby room team.

Dear Lucy, thank you for your review. We are delighted to hear how your son is enjoying nursery life and very grateful for your kind comments and recommendation.

Our son was almost 12 months old when he joined and the team really took a personal approach to getting to know him and ensure he was looked after based on his personality and needs. He settled in quickly and it really helped establish a good routine. A year later, he is so familiar with his keyworkers, friends and is happy to go to nursery. He's a sociable, confident toddler which I'm sure nursery have contributed towards. The garden is also great for an energetic boy!

The nursery has been recently renovated and looks really nice. The staff are really making a good job in taking care of the kids and we can see that in our little one being very happy and smiley all the time. Overall, very happy with the choice.

My son has attended this nursery for over a year and a half (since he was 20 months old) and we have been very pleased with it, especially over the last year where there has been a change of management
(The new manager is excellent), a better organisation, refurbishment works (inside and outside - the new garden is fantastic!). The care and education provided is excellent, with good resources and what is the most important in our opinion, very loving and caring staff, with special thanks in that respect to the male nursery assistant in the Toddlers room and the nursery nurse in the Pre-school room. Our son feels very confident and happy there.
Recently the Pre-schoolers have even been on a trip to the Science Museum, which I found absolutely brilliant for their age and I understand the trip was a great success! Looking forward to the next trips!
I have already recommended this nursery and will continue to do so.

My son joined the nursery in December last year and the settling in period was rather challenging, possibly more for me, rather than him! The staff were wonderful and before I knew it he was fully settled. Since he joined there have been numerous positive changes to the nursery. The newsletters we receive are informative and well written. My son is incredibly happy there and personally, I feel that there is a real family feel and all the children mingle at some point, irrespective of which child group they are in.
Choosing the right nursery for your child is not easy and you want to make sure it is right and we are all incredibly happy with our choice. The children have such a diverse day and the variation at this stage is key for their development. He has also has a very varied diet which combines many food groups and cultures. As a result, I have a little boy who will eat anything! I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Our daughter has been at the Little Gardens Clapham nursery for the past three months and we couldn't be happier with the level of care she is receiving. Since attending the nursery we have noticed leaps in her physical development and social skills, something which the nursery are consistently supportive of.

The staff in the baby room are passionate about their jobs, evident through the positive relationships they have built with the children. The support offered by nursery staff and management is definitely personalised to the child and involves a collaborative relationship with the family. For example, I was particularly worried about the weaning process but the staff have gone the extra mile to help through offering advice and reassurance.

Big improvement since a few months as the nursery has been refurbished. Meals are cooked onsite and are really healthy and various. The staff are really nice and get to know the children very well. The staff in the toddler room, is particularly fantastic with the kids, really passionate about their job.

I'm very pleased with the Little Gardens nursery. There has been a big improvement since last year. The nursery has recently been refurbished. The garden is very nice with interesting play areas ( a little house, cooking area, water play..).
The staff is very friendly, caring and responsive and most important there wasn't any change of staff for the last year.
My 3-year-old son feels secure and speaks about the different activities he has been enjoying during his day.
The activities are well planned and diverse.

I think this Nursery/Pre-school is excellent! Both my children attend (the eldest for over 2 years) and their development has been fantastic. The staff are all excellent, and imaginative with teaching to inspire young minds, and the new outdoor garden/playground is fantastic. The nursery has a warm, friendly and nurturing environment, all staff are approachable and willing to provide in-depth feedback on the children. Management is always ready to listen to new ideas from parents on how to improve the nursery. Both my boys are extremely happy here, I highly recommend the Clapham Day Nursery & Pre-School!

We have been at nursery (in the baby room) for 2 and half months now and couldn't be happier. The staff feel like family and love the kids. It is not too big and therefore feels more open and approachable. They are always keen to hear parents views. My son has settled in very well, eating and sleeping and playing as he should be. The food looks healthy and delicious and there are some plans for renovations which will improve the outside area for the summer.

My daughter is happy at the nursery. She is 14 months old and smiling as soon as we come in she loves playing with her carers like crazy and are enthusiastic or very tender. The variety of activities is impressive. They prepare edible soil or edible paints so children can play and taste at the same time. They have a nice outside area with a variety of scooters/bikes/rockers. They have a very varied menu, with recipes available for parents, so my daughter has a very good appetite.

I have had a very positive experience with Bringing Up Baby. The staff are professional and provide my daughter with a fun, varied and educational learning experience. It is a well run nursery with a professional, hard working team. My daughter doesn't want to leave at the end of the day, which is always a positive sign!
I would highly recommend them!

Our experience has been generally very positive. The nursery is very light and spacious. There is a lot of outdoor space which they made use of. The children have a lot of activities going on, including some exercises. The food is prepared on site and our child has shown enormous enthusiasm for it. Above all our child is happy there and has formed good bonds with the staff. The management has recently changed and there have been a number of changes almost all for the better. Although there was some staff turn over at the time it seems to have settled again. Our only significant reservation is that the invoicing system is incomprehensible even to two highly numerate people like ourselves.
