The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Buttercups at Acton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buttercups at Acton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.916 for Buttercups at Acton is calculated as follows: ( (144 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 child places. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered child places 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buttercups at Acton 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered child places ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target Reached = 1

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

We currently have our 2 daughters full-time at the nursery. They have been with Buttercups in Acton since they were babies. We could not recommend this nursery enough. They are caring and passionate about our children's development. We know that our daughters are in excellent hands. And most of all, we can see how happy they are every day. They can participate in a wide variety of activities and we know they eat well as the food is cooked on site and well balanced. The staff are always available and make us feel like part of a big family. One thing to mention, as it seems that it is not usual in other nurseries, is that they give parents the opportunity to share activities with the children, which is a great way to see how our children interact in the nursery environment. A big thank you for everything they do for our daughters!

Our little one has been going here since April last year and he loves it. The set up is really good, lots of little rooms so the children are separated by age group and they have a great garden at the back with separate space for the babies. The staff are really friendly and helpful, they always say hello and get to know your child even if they are not in their group which makes it easier when they move to the next level as they are already familiar with the staff. The in-house cook is great and our little one loves the food. The staff are also very good at reassuring and giving advice, being our first child it is nice to have that reassurance sometimes. They will also take into consideration and follow any particular request you may have regarding your child.

We are really happy with Buttercups at Acton. Our daughter loves it and is happy to go, there always seems to be interesting activities for her and she likes all the staff members. Everyone is very caring and seem genuinely interested in the well-being of each child. Our review appointments have always been insightful with the key worker giving lots of info and anecdotes about her progress. The only factors we have ranked as 'good' rather than excellent' are resources, food, drink (as there could be a little more variety) and cleanliness but these are not concerns for us and wouldn't affect us recommending this nursery.

Buttercups At Acton is a lovely nursery. It has a real family feel and you can feel the staff genuinely care about each child. They pay very close attention to my daughter's development. Not only do they keep her happy and safe but help to build her character, manners, and discipline. I trust them completely with her.

My daughter has been with Buttercups at Acton since she was 8 months old. From the very first day to the last, she has been happy and content with all her carers and her environment. I left Buttercups at Acton due to a house move and it felt more like I'd left behind a small family. Not only did all the girls welcome my child with open arms but they got to know me, my husband and my son as well. I'll never forget the Buttercups team and can't begin to express my gratitude in their part in making my little girl as wonderful as she is today. Thank you.

We have been using this nursery since my son was 8 months old. He is now 4 and will start school in September, sadly we had to say goodbye to this little slice of heaven! I can't find words to praise the managers, the staff and the supporting staff who, all together, made my son safe and cared for, stimulated and valued throughout his first years of life. He has thrived here and has learnt to be a caring, curious and inquisitive little boy - his every need has been met and his self-esteem has been fostered. Everybody at the nursery is extremely professional and reading the journal I was given when we left, has made me realise how closely my son was observed and how much effort everybody has put into his early education. A better place for little ones does not exist!

My son joined Buttercups at Acton in February 2014. He's been going to the nursery full time. We had a great experience as parents and my son has learned a lot. The team is great, fantastic, human skills, my son loved them all!

We have had two children at Buttercups over the last six years. They both thrived there, making really great friends, having lots of new experiences and feeling safe and happy throughout. They learnt the fundamentals of writing, got a good grounding in phonics and numbers and most importantly loved their teachers and will miss them very much.

Toni Ludlow, Manager at Buttercups at Acton responded to this review on 17 Aug 2016:

We loved having you and your family at buttercups and we will miss you all. Please make sure to come and visit

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better nursery for our son. He started with Buttercups when he was 10 months old, and since then has gone from strength to strength; he loves going to nursery and seeing his friends and carers.

The team at buttercups are very welcoming and professional and make you feel like part of the family. On top of this they take first class care of their children, from freshly cooked food served to environment, learning and games and events.

We are relocating in a few weeks, and I wish I could pick them up and take Buttercups with us.

Thank you.

My daughter attends the nursery, she is always so happy when I ask her about her day and the activities she has done. The staff are friendly and helpful and have met my daughters needs. I would have no reservations in recommending them to friends and family.
