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 4.551 for The Co-operative Childcare London (Maida Vale) Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (206 Excellents x 5) + (83 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (4 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 312 Ratings = 4.551

  • 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 4.85 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare London (Maida Vale) Nursery is based on 17 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.850

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

Our son attended the nursery for 7 months. He has been very happy there and formed good bonds with his teachers, all of whom are very proffesional and caring. We have been really impressed by the Manager and her team. The premises and its facilities are also great. My wife and I would certainly recommend this nursery.

Our son has been at the nursery for almost a year, and we're really happy with the experience. We were very quickly reassured by the professionalism of the team here, and very confident our son was in good hands. Our son was always happy in the morning to find his friends and caretakers, we could feel he was genuinely happy in this environment, I can only recommend it to other parents.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the Maida Vale Co-op Nursery for looking after the kids and your commitment to supporting the families especially during the last few days despite the weather!

I have dropped and picked up my son each time and cannot thank you enough for holding it all together and especially the staff who travelled from a far! Thank you all.

We were extremely nervous about sending our son to nursery, so we visited several different nurseries to ensure we found the right one and by choosing the Co-operative Childcare Maida Vale nursery we have not been disappointed. Our son’s progress since attending this nursery has been incredible, particularly with his speech, vocabulary and socialising (he has a very cute group of friends). Our son loves the staff and often greets his key workers with a huge hug each morning. All staff members throughout the nursery know our son, even if we do not know or have direct contact with them. The main carers of our son’s class genuinely care for him and often show real signs of affection towards him. Communicating with the staff is a real pleasure as they listen to our requests and feedback daily on our son's activities. Overall this nursery is a friendly environment that we would happily recommend without hesitation.

I’ve had a child at the nursery who is now at school. My younger baby goes to the nursery currently. I’m very happy with his progress since starting in September. Staff are very caring. Good to see the same staff after a long time.

My girl flies through the doors when we arrive at the nursery every morning. She loves it. She loves her carers, and I must say they are fantastic, they know each child and care for them with lots of patience and understanding. They ask you about the child if there is anything that they should know or that has changed from the evening before.

The menu is also very good and I think quite varied. The rooms are large and organised. I also really like the fact that they can go out every day and play sandpit with the tricycles, sandpit, slide and other toys which allows them to share and enjoy the company of kids from other classes.

I believe that the main areas where the nursery will need to improve are the organization and variety of didactic activities for children and the general communication with parents.

My son started at the nursery at 7 months old. I was extremely nervous, cautious, and overprotective. The staff and management are warm, extremely patient, and flexible, not only to my son's needs but to mine as well... to help me feel comfortable in leaving him all day. They work with you and your individual child's schedule, which is so amazing.

They really take care of your children and encourage their growth and development. My son is trilingual (or hoping to be) and at 11 months, he's already saying quite a few words!

Value for money is incredible. Everything is included in the fees, which are one of the lowest I've seen in the neighbourhood.

I have a niece who attends this nursery for the past 3/4 months. I have got to say how impressed I am to see how much she has progressed in her younger years in such a small amount of time. She used to be a quiet girl but now she is bursting with personality at a tender age. The staff here are amazing and very attentive to each and every child. I would most definitely recommend this place to others.

We have been at this nursery for a while now. At first we were unsure about it due to the history but we have no regrets. It has really exceeded our expectations. The staff are ever so caring and friendly. Their personalities really make it easy to speak to them about anything, good and bad. Every time I go to the nursery, the staff greet me and management greet me personally. It is very rare to know so many parents names and get it right. The children are always happy and my daughter never wants to go home!! It is a lovely nursery.

Great amenities, big rooms & there is a lot of outdoor space, which is, to me, important to note as I feel it is important kids spend time outside during the day!

Staff are very well trained and caring about our baby's development.

Convenient opening hours 07:30 - 18:30, which gives a bit more flexibility at work.

Food prepared on site!

I rarely write reviews but I really wanted to write one for The Co-operative Childcare London (Maida Vale) Nursery because we've had such a fantastic experience there. My daughter joined at the end of Feb 2017 at the age of 5 months and while I was nervous about sending her to a nursery so young, all of the staff showed such genuine care and affection for my daughter that it has far exceeded all my expectations. My daughter is always smiley when I drop her off and smiley when I pick her up and the staff make such an effort to talk me through her day and any developments that have occurred, I couldn't wish for more, I would highly recommend this nursery to everyone!

Overall it's a good nursery. My issue is limited outside space for 2 years and onwards. I also would prefer it if they would have a policy of changing shoes from those they wear outside to inside ones, as it will help with all viruses that she has been catching. However everything else is great, staff are so kind and caring, I feel that my daughter is loved and looked after very well. She loves going to nursery.

My daughter is very happy attending this nursery. She has made lots of friends and is very fond of the staff. The staff and management are good and I've seen a massive improvement over the past two years. The key area to improve for me is provide more healthy and freshly prepared food; I think they follow the EY guidelines however to my opinion too often they get beans on toast or ice cream and although menu has improved I think they can work a bit more on providing healthy nutritious meals with more veggies and avoiding sugary puddings.

Our daughter has been going to the Maida Vale Coop nursery for almost 2 years starting part time when she was 4 months old and going full time at age 1. She has developed beautifully throughout and has been loved and cherished by staff from day 1. It is such a relief finding a reliable caring environment for her. The hours are great, the staff are really lovely and we feel very lucky & grateful for the care provided. We love the outdoor/indoor facilities, the fact that the rooms are large and bright and that there is opportunity to learn from and socialise with the other kids.
