Reviews

9.3 Coombe Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.284)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Coombe Day 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Coombe Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 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 4.435 for Coombe Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.435

  • 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 4.849 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Coombe Day Nursery is based on 9 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.849

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

Reviewer Connection to Coombe Day Nursery

Our twins have attended this nursery since 2013, they were 11months old and it was scary to leave them with someone else.
Coombe Day Nursery staff made them very welcome and assured me, by their actions that it was OK to go back to work and that our twins were safe, clean, fed, entertained and cuddled a lot.
They have progressed tremendously and are ready for school, thank you to all teachers and staff for the fantastic care and education.
Our twins are always happy to go to nursery and love it!

Overall the nursery is an excellent place for my daughter to develop her skills and she enjoys it.
The staff all show personal care to her and are very friendly. They also manage the parent's expectations and apply the nursery rules, even when frustrating for us, in a calm and professional manner.
The nursery has been a key part of my daughter's development.
I recommend the nursery to anyone and will be sending my second child there at the end of the year.

All 3 of our children are in/been through Coombe and it is a great nursery. One of my children has additional needs and they are open to external specialists coming in to support. The staff have been wonderful and supportive from everyday personnel and deputy - overall management can be slightly removed, but fine. I would highly recommend.

My son loves Coombe Day Nursery! The staff are very friendly and a good range of activities are offered including classes from outside providers.

Overall the nursery is excellent and I would highly recommend it with confidence.

Coombe is such a lovely place, being a first-time mum leaving her little one in the nursery, the team at Coombe made me feel very comfortable. The little one loves attending, the days are varied and they keep you up to date with activities via an online app - great for mums on the go! Would highly recommend, my little one loves it.

I have had children at CDN (Coombe Day Nursery) for the last 6 years. I have to admit the convenience of Norbiton Station was my main draw. Both my boys have felt happy and loved at the nursery and my 6-year-old talks about the staff with great affection (he's obviously moved on now). My 3-year-old is always happy playing when I collect him and frequently chats on the way home about something fun he did that day. I'm always delighted when I realise by his chat and actions what he's been learning.

A friendly, well run nursery with professional and happy staff.
The proximity to the train station makes it a very popular choice with working families, demand is very high.
Due to its urban location outside space is limited but the children regularly take trips to Richmond Park and town centre etc...
All round a positive experience.

My daughter has attended Coombe Day Nursery since 2011. She loves it there and regularly tells me what the staff do and her classmates names and activities. It has really benefited her speech and walking, which the staff helped loads on.

I would recommend this nursery to friends.

My little one has attended Coombe Day Nursery since she was 12 months old. She initially started in the baby room and has progressed and now enjoys the interaction with staff and her friends in the toddler room. Coombe have been fantastic at supporting our daughter, both with her physical, emotional and educational development. Coombe offers a safe, supportive and friendly environment to play, learn and explore.

The nursery have external providers who come in twice a week to ensure the little ones remain interested and engaged in the EYFS. The nursery itself has a little outdoor play area with slides and tunnels to explore and the children have regular outdoor sessions each day.

Staff at the nursery are all friendly and approachable and we have been very impressed with the children’s menu, offering healthy and nutritious meals, and often providing two hot meals a day.
