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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Co-operative Childcare (Wimbledon) Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.383 for The Co-operative Childcare (Wimbledon) Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (111 Excellents x 5) + (143 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.383

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.526 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare (Wimbledon) Nursery is based on 6 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). 6 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.526

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

The nursery is great and our son has settled in really well, he's been there three months now and his key staff are very good with him and we are happy with the activities he does, the food he eats and the friends he is making - he seems to really enjoy it.

We are very happy that our two boys attend the Co-operative Nursery in Wimbledon. They both attend with readiness each morning and are always content and full of beans when we collect them at the end of the day. The staff are all friendly and attentive and have a genuine interest in the children that they care for each day. Our eldest has gained an interest in phonics and the introduction to writing letters, and our littlest is getting on very well in his group.

We really like the fact that the children are allowed to move freely between the outside space and the indoor rooms, as fresh air and outdoor play is so important to their development. I also feel that it is very good at stopping germs passing from child to child - we have had far fewer illnesses than they did at the previous nursery we sent our son to.

Thank you for everything you do - we are happy with and confident in your abilities to care for our children.

The nursery is very well run, and the staff is amazing with my 2-year-old daughter. The safeguarding is good. My daughter loves this nursery and I feel like they see her and her needs and they have good communication with us parents as well.

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.

My son loves it there, the staff are mostly wonderful including the cool, who seems to go the extra mile giving pasta when my son hates tuna, or baking birthday cakes at short notice.

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 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!
