The Review Score of 6.3 (maximum of 10) for Poppits Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppits Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.722 for Poppits Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (26 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 1.572 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppits Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.143 , then divided by 2 = 0.072

  • 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 Poppits Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

We used Poppits for both our children and had to leave in September due to relocation. Our daughter is now in a chain nursery. She only now settled after 3.5 months - which was so hard given how happy and settled she was at Poppits.
The past few months have re-confirmed that we absolutely made the right choice using Poppits for both children. What makes Poppits an outstanding nursery in our eyes is: The team is fun, happy and caring girls. They are there because they truly care for the kids and want to give them all the love and praise they need to grow in a friendly family like environment. You definitely don't find this in a large chain nursery where it is all about numbers and processes.
The location access to the bouncy castle and halls for wet weather running around. A real treat for the kids. The garden is great and the staff plant some veg and fruits to help the children learn. The variety of structured activities and free play balance.
Thank you to all the team. The best!

I'd like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Poppits Nursery. My daughter and son attended Poppits nursery for 4 yrs - my daughter, and my son for 8 months, and I cannot be more pleased with the way they conduct and run the nursery. This is a lovely ,caring, family orientated nursery and you should have no doubt that when your child is left with the staff, that they are in good hands.
We have now left the nursery unfortunately as we've moved house and my daughter has started her reception year at school, just want to say she is doing really well in school, more advanced than the rest of the kids, all because of the effort and teachings received from the ladies at this nursery. Thank you ladies! And Poppits for an amazing job. Poppits is still missed and spoken about by my daughter!

My son has been at Poppits since he was 7 months (started Feb12). He will be leaving in September to go to School and will miss Poppits immensely. He always looks forward to Mondays when he can go back to see his friends and the 'adults' staff as he calls them.
As an anxious mother, I was re-assured by Brenda and her team in the early days of settling my son in his new environment. Although the nursery is not the largest in the area, it is well set-up and the team always make sure the activities are best suited to the different age groups, whilst also allowing them all to mingle and learn from each other, respecting babies when they are older - and learning from the big toddlers/pre-schoolers when they are little. I have visited all the local nurseries before choosing Poppits and the main reason was how happy all the kids are. You rarely hear any cries there and it is always a mission to try and get him to come home as he has such a good time he doesn't want his days to end.
The team are all really good with the kids and the pre-school teachers have been developing maths and writing skills to a really good level (when the kids are ready - taking into consideration their learning abilities/willingness) - always in a fun way, but with a nice structure as well, so prepare them for school.
The garden, although not within direct access, is well laid out and there are lots of toys and activities for the kids to play with.
The added bonus is the access to bouncy castle twice a week which my son LOVES and which really is a great perk - as well as the French lessons on a Wednesday.
I have a baby daughter whom I will actually travel 12 miles into Putney to drop off as I love the nursery and want her to have the same wonderful experience as my son.
I would really recommend Poppits and the team there. Everyone is lovely and I can't thank them enough for all the dedication they have shown my son in the past 4 years. He will truly miss everyone there hugely!
