Reviews

8.9 The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.909)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.524 for The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.524

  • 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 4.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery is based on 5 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.385

  • 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 The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    7

My child has been attending this nursery for over 2 years.
He enjoys going here and has made friends and formed relationships with many of the children and the staff. He knows all of the staffs names and is very familiar with all of the nurseries surroundings.
There are good and bad days, but any concerns are addressed quickly and professionally.
I love the fact that many of the staff carry the same morals and principles as myself in regards to my child's upbringing and that is what I am most comfortable with.
My child is well looked after here and I have built a good relationship with the staff.
The food menu could do with revising as it has been handed over to me that some of the meals the children do not like and there is no alternative.
I would most definitely and have recommended friends here and they have taken up the opportunity for their child/children to attend.

The staff at the Croydon nursery are warm and friendly. Their attentiveness to my children's individual needs is exemplary and I am able to raise any matter about their development in a safe and non-judgemental environment. The staff are mature and experienced. The continuity and consistency of the staff levels is one of the attributes to the success of the team and for my children having a sense of excitement and expectation each time they walk through the doors.

I have 2 children at this nursery, one in the baby room and on in pre-school who has been attending the nursery for the last 3 years. I am very happy with the care provided by the staff for my children. I find the staff very friendly and caring, making the environment feel like home for my children and I feel at ease when I am at work as I know they are in safe hands.
I get daily feedback from staff about how my children have been, which includes activities they have done and their feeding. The nursery have learning materials to help the children with their development and I am happy with the educational activities my child in pre- school is receiving, especially with the story books and number flash cards my child takes home to learn, as this is helping to prepare her to start school.

The Co-operative Childcare Croydon Nursery have always kept me well informed of how my child is progressing. They have a great team spirit and know and remember the children even when not directly involved with them. They have supported me as a first time parent with advice and were happy to work with me to resolve issues that my child faced as she grew and developed. Over the last year, the facilities and equipment have improved which has enhanced my child's learning and enjoyment. She has left the nursery after 4 years well prepared for primary school.

We are so glad that we chose this nursery for our son to attend in the last year before he starts school. We struggled to find a setting which would give us the hours we wanted, but the co-operative Croydon were very accommodating, and also arranged for him to up his hours after the first term. After a few initial settling in issues our son loves attending nursery, has made friends who he often talks about and comes home telling us about different activities he has participated in. The staff are friendly and approachable and have been very accommodating with our son's eating issues-which we hope he will grow out of!- encouraging him to try new foods, but recognising the stress this can cause him at times. A great start to our son's education!
