The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Ladybird Nursery - Anerley 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ladybird Nursery - Anerley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 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 4.817 for Ladybird Nursery - Anerley is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.817

  • 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 4.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ladybird Nursery - Anerley is based on 8 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.909

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

Our little boy has been going to Ladybird Nursery - Anerley for the past couple of years since he was one. We considered other options - nanny, childminder, and nursery, we're so pleased we chose Ladybird Nursery. Our little boy loves his time there, it's such a caring setting in a family owned nursery - which has really supported our son's development. We are sad to leave as we're moving up north. We would (and already have) recommended the nursery to others.

Our little boy was one when he started at Ladybird Nursery - he's leaving in a few weeks to start school. The time he's spent here has been wonderful, both for him and for us. The staff are friendly and great with the children, whether that's playing with them, encouraging learning or managing behaviour (which can be tricky in a class largely full of boys!). All the parents we've met have been as happy as we are and, most importantly, the children are happy.

There's a real sense that each child is taken on their own merits and encouraged to grow, which is all you can ask for at this stage. It'll be emotional watching our son leave on his final day, but also wonderful knowing he's been given a great start by a brilliant nursery.

We loved this nursery from the moment we looked at it.
The children were so obviously happy and well looked after, it was a complete no-brainer when it came to choosing it for our son. He was just one when he joined and settled in extremely quickly. We had daily updates on how he was getting on and felt comfortable chatting to his key worker about anything that cropped up.
It's clear that the staff really care about the children and take the time to get to know them. The children take part in a wide range of activities and the food is varied and nicely balanced, which is no mean feat when it comes to feeding kids! Over the 3 years my son's been there, he's flourished. He's happy, confident, articulate and has made a lovely group of friends. We'll be really sorry to say goodbye at the end of the month.

We looked at several nurseries when looking for childcare for our daughter. We chose Anerley Ladybird because during the tour the staff seemed to genuinely care for the kids and the facilities were good (big rooms, separate changing areas in the baby rooms, reasonably big outdoor space, etc). Our daughter attended Anerley Ladybird from 9 months old until she started school and we were always happy with our choice. Our impressions during the tour had been right, the staff really did care and our daughter was clearly very happy at nursery.

Our son attended Ladybird Nursery from the age of two until the start of school. Before choosing a nursery, we scoped out several and found Ladybird the best by far. We immediately warmed to both the staff and the setting, and our son settled in easily. Throughout our son's time there, we have found everyone to be open and approachable. We've received regular, helpful reports on our son's progress. The management are easy to deal with - everything is very well run. The food is great - freshly prepared on site. (I think the kids eat better than I do! There are lots of activities for the kids and opportunities for parents to get involved. The staff provide a kind, friendly, caring environment and our son has blossomed into a confident, articulate little boy more than ready for school. We've all made lots of friends there and will be sad to leave. We highly recommend the nursery, and the Christmas play - Yep, it's a cracker!!!

I found deciding on childcare arrangements when I returned to work quite stressful but it was clear from the start, that Ladybird offer a caring, conscientious and nurturing environment and I needn't have worried. The manager is very approachable and keen to listen and act on any queries or issues you may have. The Christmas show is amazing and there are regular opportunities for feedback sessions with the staff. In terms of the staff, they genuinely care for all the children and are keen to help them develop whilst also having fun. I highly recommend this nursery to all parents.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery. My son started when he was 10 months old. His induction was managed well and in a short space of time, I felt extremely confident that he was receiving very good care. Soon my son changed from being very shy to having a large group of close friends and talking very positively about his teachers. He enjoyed the nursery so much, there were a few embarrassing pick ups when he didn't want to leave. The staff are personable and it's very clear that they have a genuine interest in the children, their needs and development. There are regular meetings with the key worker to go through their Early Years development milestones. The children are given lots of opportunities to be creative with numerous artwork being sent home each term. The food they receive is great; freshly cooked on site. My son has thrived here. He loves the staff, he's made a lovely group of friends and we will be very sad to say goodbye when he starts school.

This nursery is the best thing that happened to us since my son was born. He spent there 3 very happy years, surrounded by fantastic staff, who always took a special interest in his needs and made him and us feel special. The nursery really feels like home and you can really see that everyone gets truly attached to children and takes personal interest in their development. Other than doing everything they can to prepare children for their transition to school, they also offer lots of love, cuddles and fun! We are extremely happy with the nursery and very sad, that our journey with them is now over and it's time for school. Thank you Ladybird Nursery, I really don't know what we would do without you!

This is a great place for your child! My daughter has been going for 1.5 years at Ladybird Anerly and we could not be more complimentary of the staff and care given to the children. All staff are super friendly and my daughter has loved every minute she has been attending. Well organised and exciting activities throughout the year and lots and lots of outdoor play! It's not the biggest place but certainly makes up for it in professionalism. I would highly recommend this to other parents looking for a safe, fun and engaging environment for their child!

Ladybird Nursery is a brilliant place of childcare. My two children have previously attended this wonderful place of care, which they thoroughly enjoyed. One child who attended from the age of 3-4 still talks about his great time there! I am pleased to say that the nursery prepared my son excellently for pre-school, thoroughly enhancing his communication skills. My daughter attended the nursery at the tender age of 6 months and was extremely well cared for, she was able to develop her social skills.

My son attended Ladybird Nursery - Anerley for two years, leaving only because we moved away. I think I cried more than he did that he was leaving.

Having started when he was one he absolutely thrived there and was constantly surprising us with the things he would do, say or sing. The settling is well thought out with enough space in each room for lots of playthings. The teachers were all friendly and very caring. I felt he was in a very nurturing environment that allowed him to learn and explore at his own pace. Plus, no Christmas concert will ever come close to those at Ladybird!! They are brilliant.

I think the nicest thing is that as an independent nursery it upholds it's own high standards and ideala for both the nursery and management side. Communication is efficient, effective, prompt and most of all friendly. I can't recommend it enough.
