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 4.625 for Cumnor House School Nursery, South Croydon is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.625

  • 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 4.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cumnor House School Nursery, South Croydon 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.357

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

Very impressed and happy with both the teachers. I feel that both teachers have contributed enormously for my daughter to over succeed her milestones. Thank you so much ladies.

My daughter is very happy in this nursery and loves you both. I would recommend this nursery. Standards are very high and I love the way they teach through play.

Both my sons are attending this nursery at the moment. They are not particularly outgoing characters but they were able to settle in very quickly and have been very happy ever since, which shows the competence and effort of nursery staff. Particularly my son’s key worker, who has been particularly instrumental in helping my son to become more confident and social. Even though I slightly disagree with some of the policies and management, these do not overshadow even a bit of the overall outstanding performance of the nursery.

My children enjoy the nursery a lot. The teachers are really helpful and children love them.
Here I just want to add more to improve the nursery service:
1. Willows class doesn’t have opportunities to go to the garden /outside because their garden is opposite of a road. I don’t think they even have enough time to play at the outside platform at the back of the classroom. I do think children need to go out every day. This can limit the spread of flu cough or cold. I think bungalow has more opportunities to go to the garden because their garden is at the back.
2. I recommend to open the windows in Willows room more often even in winter. The air is not fresh after a day in winter.

My son started at another site when he was 2. As the other site didn't offer 51 weeks we moved him to South Croydon after 2 terms. The South Croydon site has been refurbished with new facilities and lots of new kit. Our son is happy and enjoys his time. We can see great social and interactive skills developing. His vocabulary is also improving. There was a lot of staff turnover initially with some communication difficulties but it seems to have settled now. We feel the other site offered a personalised touch with our interactions with the key worker that still seem to be lacking at South Croydon. It is surprising to see the difference in the quality of staff skills under the same banner. We'd have preferred the nursery to open 7.30 to 6.30 like most do as it is a great help for working parents. Irrespective of affordability, the nursery only offers 15 hours funding and only if your child attends full 5 days - not 30 hours per entitlement. Overall, the quality of learning and education / discipline is excellent.

My son is happy at nursery and we are happy with the variety of skills he is learning including teaching him to recognise letters, write and teaching him his numbers.
He is developing relationships with his peers which is important and most importantly he is having fun. He enjoys singing and doing PE too and feeling like he is at “school”.
