  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 11 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 4.404 for The Co-operative Childcare (Wimbledon) Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (161 Excellents x 5) + (182 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 359 Ratings = 4.404

  • 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 4.965 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare (Wimbledon) Nursery is based on 11 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.965

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

Staff have been very accommodating with settling my children into the nursery. They are very caring, considerate, helpful and professional in what they do. There is always someone around to lend a hand which is super helpful. My kids have been challenging to settle but the staff have been persistent and kind with it all.

My daughter has been attending here for over a year now and the progress that she has made is absolutely brilliant, her personality has become more independent, her range of vocabulary has changed so much. She's very happy here enjoys coming in to play with her friends and to learn different things.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful, no complaints at all.
There have been loads of changes in the nursery and the outcome has been positive.

My daughter has been at the Co-Op Nursery since she was 8 months old (she's now 2 and a half) and she's been looked after really well. The team are really thoughtful and caring; they all look out for her and know her name and what she's like - not just her key worker but a number of people from the different rooms. She knows all their names and tells me what they've been up to that day - who braided her hair, who she played with etc. I trust the team and feel like they really care (special shout out to a special member of staff who often does the very early shift and is just wonderful). When there are issues, they are dealt with quickly and transparently and on the few occasions I've raised something as a concern it's always been handled well.

There are good outside spaces both at front and back of the nursery and in the summer the children are outside a lot which I particularly like.

Highly recommended.

I had 2 children at the Wimbledon Nursery. Myself, my 2 children and my husband have had a lovely experience and would recommend to anyone. The only negative I would say is that there should be some sort of learning in that there should be the alphabet and numeracy taught.

The carers and support staff are very friendly and I feel that my daughter is being cared for in a very personal and individual environment.
The food is overall healthy and varied and my daughter enjoys the meals.
The accommodation is a bit worn, but there are new toilet areas for the kids which is a good standard, and the kitchen looks nice and clean.
Security in the area is good. It is difficult for the children to get out and for unauthorized people to get in.

Our children are so happy at this nursery. They really enjoy their time there and are always happy and full of beans when we collect them. The staff all seem to enjoy their jobs, and actually, enjoy their work with the children. All staff are friendly and professional and we have no complaints at all.

Thank you!

A really good nursery full of friendly staff and managers who form a genuine bond with each child. The key worker system is a great success in this nursery - they really know your child and working to develop them as they move from room to room which is then discussed at regular parents' evenings. The management team are flexible and accommodating of parents' varying priorities and requirements which is very welcome. The nursery has good outside space - much more than other nearby nurseries which is a real plus point, and they are encouraged to go outside most days, weather permitting!

We are so happy with this nursery. My son joined at 14 months old and is now 2 years old. He loves it there and runs in the gates every day. All the staff are all friendly and very caring towards my son. It is always so calm at the nursery. They do lots of activities and play outside as much as they can.

A good nursery that has made a number of improvements recently. Staff seem happier and turnover has stabilised. Management is responsive. The range of activities/learning could be expanded in pre-school. Children are happy - most important thing.

We have two children at the Co-op nursery in Wimbledon, and I think it's hard to accurately rate the nursery when we're never there to really see how it's run every day. However, my two seem very happy there, which is most important. I think it's particularly good for the older kids. Both the staff and other children always give my 2 and a half year old such a warm greeting when I drop her off. The staff are always very friendly, which is very important. My biggest bugbear would be the price, but that may be the case for all nurseries.

We are happy with the care provided to our daughter and the care staff are very friendly and deserve a lot of praise for the effort they put into looking after the children. The nursery itself caters to all the needs of the children with lots of exciting activities to ensure that they do not get bored. Also the staff provide regular evaluation of the children's progress.

My son started at the nursery at 3 months old. The staff supported me in maintaining breastfeeding as much as possible and then transition to formula. The toys and activities were adapted to his age and evolved with him. The staff are extremely friendly and really care about my son.
They help him through his milestones and are extremely excited each time he reaches them. His progress is tracked and we have regular updates to support him in his development. Although the building is a bit tired, the staff make good use of the outdoor space and the nearby park. We regularly get small gifts such as pictures, baked goods, paintings made by our little one. Our son is now over one year old and is always happy to go to nursery and see the staff.

I am very happy with the way my child (21 months old) is taken care of at the Childcare Co-operative. The staff are friendly and competent. Lots of activities are provided (water play, sandpit, painting, signing, storytelling) and children have access to so many different kinds of toys, which I think are good for children's development. Sometimes, I think my child would sleep longer if we were at home and wish he would stay longer.

We are delighted with the way our daughter has integrated with her early years class and the smooth transition to the next class up. She now walks straight into the class happy to join up with her team leader and other friends. The carers are great and have a genuine care for not only our daughter's development, but also for establishing a warm relationship with our daughter. We are very pleased with the nursery and the happy smile our daughter has when we pick her up!

My son has developed and flourished here. There is excellence in many areas in terms of personnel and facilities. Recently he has moved up a room and the transition was completely seamless; the child/key worker bond was instantaneous. Would recommend to new parents in the area.

My daughter has been attending the nursery now for over 6 months and has developed so much in the time that she has been there. The staff are dedicated and kind and put every effort in to do the very best for my daughter. The activities she does on a daily basis are varied and have developed different skills within her. The amount of outdoor space the nursery has is a real positive, especially in London - they go out there at least one a day even in winter. She is has also developed friends within the nursery that we also see in our spare time, which is an added positive and mean that she is always really happy to go in every day. Would thoroughly recommend this hidden gem!

We have had both boys at Wimbledon Nursery from an early age. The oldest is now at school. They have always been caring, providing an early start (7.30) and late finish (6.30). The nursery have excellent meals - healthy, warm and delicious. The outdoor space is the best in the area, my youngest son thoroughly enjoys it.

We are really satisfied with our new nursery. We moved into the area 5 months ago and our two little girls joined the Co Op nursery 3 months ago. The staff is really qualified, the environment nice and clean and all the rooms of the nursery are very spacious. Also the outdoor space is a very good size with covers so as the rain is not a problem for outdoor play! The main advantage for us is that out two little ones have significantly improved in their English, if we consider that it is not our mother language. Overall we are eternally happy with The Co-operative Childcare and how the staff do their job! Thank you!
