The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 7 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 4.802 for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.802

  • 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 4.972 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) is based on 7 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.972

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

When heavily pregnant I visited a number of nurseries in the area and immediately liked this nursery. Following a 3-month experience at a large and rather impersonal nursery prior to getting a place in this nursery from the waiting list, I can honestly say that the two are incomparable. The manager has been here for almost 20 years and runs an extremely tight ship. Experienced and warm, she greets you individually and gives each child and parent her individual attention. Importantly she personally ensures that very high standards are applied throughout and can be regularly seen going into the rooms and gently guiding her staff in aspects of child care, cleanliness and organisation. My daughter has been very happy there from day one. Not once have I encountered any cause for concern. The experienced staff have nurtured her as well as taken great care to encourage her development. I echo other parents' views that this is a place I feel happy to leave my child in.

Thank you for your kind feedback it is most appreciated.

Ritherdon Road nursery has provided all the peace of mind I could ask for in entrusting my child to other people. My child cannot wait to get there in the morning and is just as happy on pick up and that is the best review you can give. The nursery is intimate, caring, clean, well managed and happy and willing to work with you in your child's best interest. Can highly recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for your excellent review.

The best day nursery in South West London. You feel at home and more comfortable with their staff, my child gained a lot (cognitive, social, emotional communication) wise. All know the child needs and they work as a team. In short, the best day nursery.

Thank you for your positive review.

Both my children (4 and 2) have attended the Ritherdon Road branch of Eveline Nurseries. Both have been extremely happy, running straight in when they arrive. Frequently forgetting to say goodbye to me!
They have been fed proper, home cooked meals. The staff are all very friendly and kind and because the nursery is small, everyone knows everyone and the children all seem very settled. Both my children have learnt huge amounts and been encouraged constantly. Any behavioural issues are resolved quickly. I have been happy to leave my children here and regularly recommend the nursery.

Thank you for your positive response.

We love the warm, caring and friendly manager and all her team at the nursery. We are always 100% confident that our children are being taken care of and are happy. They talk about the staff all the time at home and often don't want to go home.
The menu is varied and the activities are always much more exciting than what we do at home.
The nursery is really an extension of our home and family.

E Drut, Head Teacher at The Eveline Day and Nursery Schools Ltd (Ritherdon Road) responded to this review on 08 Feb 2017:

Thank you for the positive report.

Our daughter has attended Eveline for approx. 14months and she loves it. Ever since she started we have been impressed with the care she has been given by all the staff, their attitude towards safety, learning and fun. The manager, runs a tight ship and whilst being friendly and caring, is fair and professional, which is also reflected in her staff, who are a wonderful group of individuals.
When we drop our daughter off in the morning, she runs in ready for hugs with the staff and to see her little friends. At the end of the day we receive a daily report with everything with what she has done that day, the activities she has enjoyed the most, the interaction she has with her friends, the valuable little snip bits of the conversations and interactions she has with her friends, and the food she has eaten and how much and how much she has slept - important to us and truly reflects the attention the nurses give them.
A wonderful nursery.
