  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.756 for Buttercups at Ealing is calculated as follows: ( (137 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.756

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buttercups at Ealing is based on 13 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

From the time I placed my son at Buttercups at Ealing Nursery when he was 8 months old I had no worries. My son was happy during the settling in. He gets on so well with the staff and always happy to see them. They keep you updated with weekly newsletters and regular emails. The staff are lovely and friendly and the management is very approachable. I am very satisfied with the care that my son receives.

I can not recommend the team at Buttercups at Ealing enough, so much care, attention and fun is put into every day that my son joins them at the nursery.

The energy that the team puts into each day is so visible and it’s such a nurturing environment all the children seem so happy!

My son attends three days a week and has loved every day with the preschool group. He joined the poppies group when he was around 2 and a half and after a short break, we have rejoined Buttercups as he loves it so much.

All the staff are so familiar and wonderful to all the children which makes the whole house so inviting for the children to come into every morning.

Our son began attending Buttercups at Ealing last year when we moved to Ealing and he loves the nursery. He is very happy to go and the staff is amazing: the teachers are very kind and supportive and the children have a lot of fun. He learns every day and grows serenely! The manager has always been particularly careful and attentive to our child needs and our doubts. I would surely recommend this nursery!

Buttercups at Ealing is a truly admirable nursery with an inspirational team behind it that have worked to transform children’s early years learning. They are friendly and very helpful, I would definitely recommend this incredible nursery to parents of children 0-5 years. Both my children have attended this nursery and my daughter is still attending. I am very grateful for their fantastic service. My daughter comes home very happy from nursery and is always eager to go every morning.

Overall a good nursery with very friendly staff. It was the nature of the staff that made me choose Buttercups over other nurseries in Ealing, despite it being the most expensive. The nursery is however quite small and does get congested around drop off and pick up time. But I think they've made the best of the space they have. They recently introduced a Montessori room and my son loves Montessori classes. The kids partake in a wide variety of activities and clubs. Overall, both my children are very happy here.

My son has been at nursery since April 2017. He started off such a shy boy who would not socialise or feel comfortable around others. However, since starting he has become so confident and has developed so much in all areas. Everyone in my life has seen such a big improvement. He has a great bond with all of the staff at the nursery. I feel comfortable leaving him as I know he is happy, safe and enjoys going each day. The nursery offers a great variety of meals which he enjoys and helps me at home.

My daughter has just started with settling in period and I like the idea of letting her decide who the key person should be by looking at who she will get close to.

My son has attended the nursery five days a week full time since he was six months old. The staff are wonderful and he is enjoying his time in the nursery. I feel that the care is excellent and the staff are very close to the children. The feeling is that of a large family. The garden is big and the children get a lot of outdoor time. Sometimes communication is a bit lacking but overall we have been very happy with the nursery.

I visited many other nurseries in Ealing and Buttercups has the best baby room I have seen. It has a separate sleeping room with cots which is very nice.

My child has been attending this nursery for over 10 months now, I could not be happier!!
The nursery provides amazing healthy meals and my child is so excited when approaching the nursery, the whole team is amazing and has provided amazing care and teaching!! I will definitely bring my second child as well.

The older section also has an amazing Montessori equipped room, a perfect combination of the EYFS.

Fantastic Childcare!!

Our daughter has been at this nursery since she was a year old. We have been very happy with the care she has received. She enjoys her days, eats, sleeps and seems happy.
As parents, we can relax knowing our child is being looked after by caring professionals.

I've always been very happy with Buttercups, the staff are very caring and have taken great care of my daughter (almost 2) since she started there a year ago. My little girl now runs into the room at breakfast time each morning and gives the staff a hug to say hello. Lots of the staff throughout the nursery seem to know her by name as well as just the staff in the babies room. The garden facilities are excellent and its great that the kids get to play outside at every opportunity, even in not so good weather.
I really feel like they have got to know my daughter very well, even though she only attends 2 1/2 days a week at the moment, and her key worker creates play that suits her interests and challenges her learning. I'm very happy with Buttercups indeed and would highly recommend it.

Both of our children attended Buttercups in Ealing and absolutely loved it (as did we!). All of the staff were welcoming, friendly and caring, and played a large part in our children's development and increased confidence. The two kids have rather different personalities, but the nursery easily accommodated both and allowed each to thrive in their own ways. Buttercups organised a lot of fun activities that allowed us (as parents) to be involved - e.g. the Christmas concert, Valentine's Day party, etc. - and the kids really enjoyed having Mum and Dad along. Our children learnt lots of new made-up songs, many of which taught them about manners, safety, hygiene etc., which is a lovely approach to teaching important concepts to kids!

Thanks to everyone, I highly recommend Buttercups in Ealing! :-)

My daughter attended the nursery from just before 5 months until 4 years when she left for primary school - she has had the most wonderful experience here, formed some lovely relationships with the very caring staff and has developed so well that she's easily ready for school despite being one of the youngest in the year. As well as phonics/numbers, they've made sure she has physical skills, practical ones like dressing/undressing herself and so many creative activities. After a period a few years ago with high staff turnover, the current manager (and deputy) have made sure everything runs really well in terms of early years curriculum and everyday experience for children and parents. I am genuinely very sad that this phase of my daughter's life is almost over and I would highly highly recommend it to anyone.
