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 4.688 for Children's Corner Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 Children's Corner Day 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 5 Target = 1.000

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

My baby girl started in October 2017. She was 11 months.The process was very stressful for both of us, but the staff made it much easier. We’ve been supported all the time and she has settled very well after two weeks. Everyone there is very kind and she really enjoys going there every day. At the end of the day, she has been always happy and she is learning something new all the time. I am very happy with the service provided. Definitely recommended.

We all really enjoyed having your little girl and miss her tremendously, especially her 2nd mother, she is lost without her. Wishing that everything is ok and hoping to see you soon on a visit.

An amazing nursery with highly motivated, cheerful, very friendly staff, good protocols to provide parents with thorough feedback on a daily basis online, an inclusive ethos, transparent, reasonable pricing. It is a small nursery which helps your child build more meaningful relationships and even siblings in different age groups spend some time together every day, which helps strengthen their bond.

Thank you so much for a lovely feedback, it has been a pleasure of the years to get to know your growing family.

I would highly recommend Children's Corner. My daughter was very settled there and the staff evidently care deeply for all the children. The main draw is the outdoor space and the family feel to this nursery.

Feedback is very thorough and thoughtful. Staff are excellent proactive, logical and have lots of empathy. The quality of the food is excellent and the menu is frequently changed. Activities for the children are varied and the owners take pride in their work and invite feedback from parents and make constant improvements.

Kokila Patel, Manager at Children's Corner Day Nursery responded to this review on 10 Oct 2017:

It has been an absolute pleasure having your little girl settle so well and beginning to flourish. We will truly miss you and her! Thank you for all your supportive encouragements too.

My son went to this nursery for two years, doing full days from 8 am to 6 pm and we couldn't have found a better place for him. Having just started reception this year, we can see how confident and clear his communication has become. From taking an exceptionally long time to settle into the nursery as a two-year-old (during which time the nursery staff was extremely supportive and patient) to walking in confidently into the school ready for the big step up - it feels like the right kind of attention, care and learning has gone into this.
The staff are very friendly, provides personal attention to the kids and many times go and above beyond in taking care of the little ones (soothing tantrums, making sure the little tummies are full even when the routines get broken). The management also provided good guidance while we were looking for schools and their honest assessments helped shape our decision. My son still remains very attached to his key person, staff and all the friends he made.

Thank you so much for a lovely feedback, I am so pleased that he has transitioned into his next chapter so comfortably. It really helps with parents and setting work strongly in partnership to cater for the child's best interest.

We enjoyed watching this shy, timid little boy grow into such an independent boy, where he was assisting younger children and his peers.

I love this nursery because the manager and staff are very friendly and helpful. l recommended it to my friend and she is bringing her child to this nursery. My child loves this nursery as well and every day he says, I want to go to nursery as I love my carer.

Thank you so much for your warm feedback, we truly enjoyed having you and your son at our nursery. We miss you both very much.

Playing outdoors when it's cold - my child has come home with a wet jacket and hat and cold hands due to playing in the water and sand. Due to this my child has been sneezing and caught a minor cold and cough. Would like the nursery to ensure when children are outside in the cold to be wrapped well and not to go near cold water or sand as they can catch colds.

Kokila Patel, Manager at Children's Corner Day Nursery responded to this review on 10 Mar 2017:

Thank you for your honest feedback, there is very strong research that supports child development and learning that children benefit when they have exposure to outdoor play no matter what the weather. Unfortunately, your little girl was experiencing individual health needs and this may or may not have compounded her minor colds and coughs. Children also in London experience high volume of pollution which is also impacting on younger children having respiratory issues. I completely appreciate, your annoyance if your child's coat was wet and they were being sent home in wet clothing. However, as childcare professionals, we will continue to allow children to have fun playing outside in rain, snow and windy weather as we know they develop stronger immune systems and resilience to infections and most importantly they have a huge amount of fun!

We first came across Children's Corner when we were looking for a nursery for our elder son. Having visited many nurseries in the area, Children's Corner stood out as being the most friendly and welcoming nursery. There were also other benefits. It is run by a couple who have their own children and they are very approachable. Mr. B prepares home cooked food every day in the kitchen at the nursery, and it is always fresh, hot and healthy with a diverse menu. There is a lovely garden area with lots of activities for the children and as we have boys, physical exercise is very important to burn off their energy. The nursery is very professional and they take the children's' learning as a priority. They realised that our boys needed assistance with their speech and language and referred us, which made the process much easier. They support our boys in their mental and physical learning and always offer a very welcoming atmosphere. A good cultural education is also offered and a lot of creative play.

A lovely family-run nursery with enthusiastic staff and good outdoor space. The staff are all very friendly and caring, and the kids are all very happy. Because of the small size of the nursery, it means kids can go on ad-hoc trips to local destinations, eg the shops or the parks. Each child is treated as an individual, and their learning journey is tailored accordingly.

My son has been extremely happy at this nursery. It is really small and homely and has a very personal feel. The staff are really caring and make the days a lot of fun, including trips to local parks and shops. He has made some lovely friends while he has been there. Also, the food is amazing and according to my son, much better than home!

My children have been at the nursery for over 3 years now. The staff and management have shown them such care and love during this time. They have learnt so much through the nursery and they have become confident smart little girls because of the time that the staff have invested into them.

Absolutely love sending my little one to Children's Corner! The warm, welcoming staff have taken care of him since day 1 and he talks about them as if they are part of his family (they were very patient and loving when he cried for what felt like a long time when settling in). Compared to other places, the nursery is clean, cosy, healthy (no cakes, fruit for pudding and freshly cooked meals) and the overall impression is of a well-balanced family of staff who help each other out and don't seem overstretched. My little one is thriving and has learnt so much and I look forward to him spending as much time as possible with Children's Corner. I also love how the little ones play outdoors so much.

Children's Corner is a fantastic family run nursery where both my children have flourished....with my son still being there. My daughter went from 18 months until she started school a few years ago, and whilst the emphasis is on play and fun, they were excellent at encouraging my daughter with her phonics/numbers etc which she was keen to learn....this thirst for learning has continued and she excels at school. The atmosphere is warm, the staff are friendly and caring, they have fantastic activities to local areas and they provide great healthy meals and snacks. My son loves going and talks fondly of his friends and teachers. I can't recommend this nursery enough, it is a little gem and great value for money!
