  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 55 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.724 for Gumboots Community Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (484 Excellents x 5) + (170 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 660 Ratings = 4.724

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gumboots Community Nursery is based on 55 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 55 Reviews ÷ 10 Target Reached = 1

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

Our daughter and son have both attended Gumboots for a number of years and received exemplary care. The staff are always kind, patient and enthusiastic. The preparation for the next steps of attending school is also very well planned.

The nursery has a warmth and energy to it which I didn't find elsewhere when looking for my daughter. The garden is very big for this area of London and I really like knowing that the children are outside regularly. The food that is prepared daily is wide-ranging and doesn't shy away from dishes that introduce new tastes.

We feel so very lucky that our little girl is at Gumboots - she’s absolutely thrived there and is a confident, kind and happy child which is no doubt in part because of the care and development she receives at nursery. The staff are second to none and form close bonds with the children based on an ethos of kindness and respect. We would highly recommend Gumboots.

Gumboots is a real joy to be part of - the manager and staff are all so lovely, welcoming and caring! My son practically runs in in the morning and gives everyone a big cuddle when he leaves. I leave happy in the knowledge that not only is he well looked after and cared for but loved also. The staff in his room give off such a part of the family vibe.

Our daughters have all attended Gumboots over the years. Our youngest daughter who still attends Gumboots has developed in so many ways and is a more confident child and looks forward to going into nursery every day. The nursery itself is a fun and lively environment and I think it provides the backdrop for more effective learning.

Our experience of Gumboots has been fantastic and we would definitely recommend it to others.

We are so happy with Gumboots - our daughter is happy, loved and developing there. The effort the team put into new activities is so sweet.

Our daughter has adored the staff in every room she’s been in as she’s grown. We love how all of the kids seem to know all of the staff, and the staff know them too. It’s a wonderful community.

A really well-run nursery with amazing staff who really care about the kids. The facilities are amazing and the food is of a high quality.

My child’s developmental progress is carefully monitored and reported back well at parent’s evening.

I have only ever had a positive experience of the staff who are all well trained.

I was so worried about my daughter starting nursery as she didn’t like being with anyone other than my husband and me but I absolutely needn’t have worried. The staff at Gumboots are amazing - caring, friendly, creative and inclusive, and have helped my daughter to be a confident and outgoing toddler. She started in the baby room and has progressed through the rising 2s to the 2-3 year room where she is now. The staff and facilities in all rooms have been brilliant and I would not want my daughter to attend anywhere else. She really loves it there and adores all the staff members. And as a fussy eater at home, I’m hugely grateful for the varied and delicious looking food that is provided which she gobbles up no problem! Thank you Gumboots - we love you!

I just wanted to say how brilliant I have found this nursery. I have two children at Gumboots and have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the staff, the fantastic range of activities and celebrations they undertake and the deep care the staff have for the children there. It is obvious the children have fun there and I know what great hands my kids are in when I drop them off before work. They take a genuine interest in the kids home life and do a great job at relaying what the kids get up to when you pick them up. I cannot rate this place highly enough!

This nursery is fantastic. My son has been there since he was 12 months and the staff have really nurtured him. They all know him really well and make him and me feel special-it is like a family. He has fun and has learnt lots of new things independently from me. He is very happy there and I am happy leaving him. Knowing that the staff are looking after him really well. The layout and garden space are excellent.

Our children are really happy at Gumboots. The staff are supportive, attentive and highly professional. They take a keen interest in the development of children and their wellbeing. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. You really get a sense that they care about the children. It feels as though the staff often go above and beyond what is required of them. The team apply themselves very imaginatively to developing interesting and creative experiences for the children. The management team must be incredibly busy too, but still take the time to know the children individually. The staff at Gumboots are very approachable. As parents, we feel we can talk to them easily about how our kids are doing there.

The best thing about Gumboots is the staff. The carers really care about the children and show them love and fondness as well as being fun and encouraging which for me is the most important thing. There is a family feeling to the nursery and many staff have worked there for many years which is a credit to the wonderful management.

The gardens, for a city location, are huge and green and the children are able to get lots of fresh air. The large shaded area allows shelter from the sun and rain so fun can be had all year around.

Feedback at the end of the day is very informative allowing any issues to be discussed and resolved.

The home cooked food is amazing. Such a varied and healthy menu.

My children love their time at Gumboots.

Since my first son stated at Gumboots in September 2015, and my second son starting in March 2017, I have been amazed and humbled at the care and attention we have received as a family. The staff are attentive, caring and passionate about the children's welfare and development. All of the children at Gumboots are clearly happy with the positive and nurturing environment. Gumboots has an excellent local reputation, which I often hear as my business is based locally.

My daughter has attended Gumboots nursery since she was one year old and she is now a confident and happy four-year-old soon to be starting school. Gumboots has provided outstanding care since the outset and I trust the staff implicitly to look after her and support her in every way she needs. I also feel supported as a parent and the staff always have time to chat to you about your children's progress. It is a very special place with dedicated, caring staff and a bright and cheerful environment. My youngest daughter has just started and I am sure she is going to love it as much as her sister has.

My little boy has settled in brilliantly and is very happy at Gumboots.
The team is kind and caring and the atmosphere is full of fun and joy.
They have amazing outside space, with slides and playhouses and enjoy diverse activities including yoga and gardening as well as particularly good roleplay facilities with the cars outside and play kitchens inside.
They read and sing and encourage painting, drawing and messy play with water, sand etc daily.
The food is healthy and I can’t fault the staff - who are also fantastically supportive and flexible.

Fantastic all round quality of childcare. Children are well looked after with a diverse and ever-changing list of activities and outings for them to partake in.

Gumboots provides a relaxed, warm, caring and stimulating environment for the children it cares for. My son loves his days there. Another huge plus for me (as a professional nutrtitionist) is that the food is all prepared on site and is diverse and nutritious. I'd highly recommend this nursery to any parent or carer.

We feel extremely lucky to be able to send both of our daughters to Gumboots Community Nursery. Our eldest has now been attending for three years and we have been consistently amazed by the quality of both the nursery itself and more importantly, the wonderful staff who work there. Choosing a nursery was a big decision and sending our children to any nursery would have been a major transition for them - fortunately, the team at Gumboots are incredibly adept at assisting children during these moments of change, and our eldest in particular now adores meeting her friends at nursery. We could not recommend Gumboots more highly.

Gumboots provides a safe and caring environment for our daughter to have fun and learn with her friends. She has blossomed since going to Gumboots. The team are fantastic and always great at updating us with her progress. I would highly recommend this nursery.

So happy that I managed to get my son into Gumboots. He has been since he was a baby and is now in the 2-3yrs room. He is so happy there, always talking about his favourite staff members and all the fun he’s been up to in the ‘big garden’.

From administration to daily hugs on arrival, (for my daughter not me!) Gumboots excel at every level. No request is too big or small and response times on emails super quick, which has not been the experience at other nurseries. This, coupled to the bright colourful space means that every day I leave my daughter there, I drop her off in the confidence she is with true professionals, who not only do a great job but have fun doing it. A few tears have been shed now and again, but I try to do it once I have left the building. Bravo!
