Reviews

8.9 Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.864)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 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 4.63 for Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.63

  • 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 4.234 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge is based on 5 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 21.4 positive Reviews (107 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 21.4 Target = 0.234

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Cherubins Day Nursery - Chestnut Lodge

My children have attended this nursery for almost 6 years, and it's likely to remain a part of their lives for some years yet due to the breakfast/after school/holiday clubs, even though my youngest is starting school this September.

It is a lovely nursery and we feel very lucky that our girls have been, and continue to be, so well cared for. The manager is fantastic - she ensures that the high standards are maintained brilliantly - and, as another reviewer mentioned, a high proportion of staff have been there throughout the years our girls have attended. I love that they have clearly got to know each of our daughters so well.

Otherwise, the sense of space (and in particular the outdoor space) is great and the longer opening hours have also been essential for us. I highly recommend.

our son is very happy at Cherubins Day Nursery. The standard of care is quite high from the people looking after him. The staff constantly think of new activities to stimulate the children. The outdoor spaces are excellent and they have been very helpful in potty training. I think some of the reporting on food consumption can be a little inaccurate but overall I'm very happy with the nursery.

Generally very pleased with the nursery. The staff are all providing a high-quality provision for our children. We get a lot of feedback, especially now we get a daily emailed report. We're fully confident that our children are safe, well looked after and happy and stimulated. The only criticism I would have is at the back office. Invoices are frequently late and confusing to the accuracy. We hope this will improve!

My children have been attending Cherubins for 7 years and have loved their time. The staff have been fantastic (there are a number of staff members who have been employed throughout the last 7 years) they are all very caring and really engage with the children. The management are also really supportive and flexible and have made working with small children simple!

Our son has flourished here at the nursery. He has such a lovely group who teach, play, help to feed and look after him. He squeaks with excitement when he sees that he is going to nursery.

Our child loves each day at the nursery. He comes home full of information and wanting to talk about his day. He loves playing outside in the 'muddy garden'.
The carers are very organised and ensure a fully and productive day. There is story time, art, and world learning. The long hours really help us plan how we work and care for our child. We will miss this nursery next year as he goes to big school.
