Reviews

9.6 Devonshire Day Nursery (Chiswick) has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.577)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Devonshire Day Nursery (Chiswick) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 50 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Devonshire Day Nursery (Chiswick) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.577 for Devonshire Day Nursery (Chiswick) is calculated as follows: ( (386 Excellents x 5) + (177 Goods x 4) + (34 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 600 Ratings = 4.577

  • 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 Devonshire Day Nursery (Chiswick) is based on 20 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 17.6 positive Reviews (88 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 17.6 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.

Really high standard, safe nursery. Well trained, helpful, nice, experienced staff. Great communication with carers and management.

Useful email subscription which let you know the menu, planned schedule (games, learning to help and prepare my 2 year old daughter) for the next day and gives an idea on how to play and learn with your baby at home.

I can highly recommend that place with an honest heart.

We've had a thoroughly great experience at Devonshire - from Caterpillars right up to Butterflies. Whilst there have been changes along the way the management have worked well to ensure these transitions have had as minimal impact on the children which has been the most important. The staff are very welcoming and the managements staff, in particular, are very open to ideas, input and involvement from parents.
I have very fond memories at Devonshire and thank all the staff for all their great hard work.

My little boy has been attending Devonshire Day Nursery since he was 9 months old. The staff are lovely and made me feel at ease leaving him there. Even although he only attends afternoon sessions, I would definitely recommend this nursery to other mothers on the basis that my little boy has been very happy playing there. They have also been very accommodating when I have needed extra sessions at last minute.

So far, I've had a very positive experience with Devonshire Day Nursery, Chiswick.
My son seems to enjoy the nursery tremendously, the staff are helpful, attentive and observant. My son started off at nursery being quite shy and I believe his interaction with staff and other children have really helped him to come out of his shell. He chatters a lot more and has gained more confidence during his time at nursery.
Overall, I am a very satisfied parent.

I am very pleased with the overall performance of the nursery. The staff members are very friendly, attentive and observant. They provide a reliable detailed feedback at the end of each day.
I have two children attending the nursery and they both appear to be happy at the nursery. They learn a lot from the everyday activities and from their friends.

Our daughter joined the 2-3years room before she was 2, demonstrating the commitment of the nursery to ensure unnecessary adjustments and changes.
Settling period was paced and worked very well and our little one was happy and relaxed from day one.
Activities all varied and tools and toys are also, many encourage each child's preference.
It has been less than 2 months and we are all very happy.

My 2-year-old son started at the nursery in September, at first 2 mornings a week with a view to introducing him to some independence and time away from home and mummy.
He found it difficult to settle at first, but the nursery has persevered, particularly his key worker and he now talks about nursery all the time and looks forward to his mornings there.
I love the fact that everyone who works there knows his name.
The environment is friendly and kind and I'm very confident that my son has excellent care when he's there.

We have currently been at the Devonshire Day Nursery for 2 years. After a few months of ups and downs, after a change in management, we are pleased to say we feel settled again in where we are sending our boy.
The nursery staff are just wonderful and it is such a comfort as a parent to know your child is being well looked after and getting the development and encouragement needed before starting school.

Our son joined the nursery in August and since then we have seen a huge development. He didn't understand english but the warm staff helped him to settle. He loves coming to nursery to, play, sleep and he loves having his breakfast with his friends.
His key person and secondary key person were really important to his settling. The other nursery workers also gave him a lot of love and cuddles.
We want to give a big thank you to all of them.

We would like to praise all of the nursery staff and sincerely thank them for helping us to adapt our son to a new language, culture, routine and friends in an outstanding time. Our son has developed at an unbelievable pace, while maintaining his kind and generous nature. We believe this is a reflex of the harmonic context he finds at the nursery (and kudos for diversity).

All make a big effort to give my daughter all the attention, reassurance and encouragement to have a rewarding and fun filled day at nursery. I feel very confident leaving her in their care, knowing they will do their utmost to make her happy and enjoy her day whilst also developing important skills. My daughter is always happy to attend nursery knowing she will see her key worker or the other nursery staff who she loves playing with.

My daughter has attended Devonshire Day Nursery since June 2015. During this time she has been part of two levels of care. In each, a primary and secondary carer are allocated to each child. This is an excellent system as it has allowed my daughter to bond with all carers. The staff (both carers and manager) are very professional, engaging and taking much time to discuss individual children's needs. This has resulted in my daughter receiving excellent care. The facilities, learning opportunities and activities are of very high standards; the opportunity for children to develop in both learning and social skills is ever present, but it is the staff who make Devonshire Day Nursery a very good nursery. Their professionalism and commitment are a credit to them.

Our impression of the nursery this far has been great. The staff and carers are all hands on, responsive, caring and thorough in the baby room. Our 13 month old has settled in quickly and enjoys spending time with his carers. He smiles at them every morning and I feel confident he is happy when I leave him for the day. Suggestions
1) I would love if the food was organic and offered more variety i.e add salmon to the menu, less sandwiches.
2) On boarding/settling in period could be better for parents- a call and refresh of what to expect would be helpful and explain what is expected would be appreciated.

Both of my children have attended the Devonshire. The level of care is fantastic. We always receive a warm welcome it's a "nursery day!" I have watched my children grow in confidence and each day they come home with skills and new ideas. The food is also fantastic! My daughter gets very upset if I pick her up early and she misses one of the tasty meals!!

My two and a half year old son has been attending Devonshire Day Nursery since he was 8 months old. he has blossomed into a confident little boy, thanks to the outstanding and extremely warm care he has received from the care givers at the nursery. My child runs away from me when I come to pick him up as he's very happy at nursery. The care provided is outstanding and I feel my child is being nurtured to reach his full potential. I feel extremely fortunate that my son goes to Devonshire Day Nursery.

My daughter has settled well at Devonshire and enjoys going to Nursery, even asking to go at weekends. Overall the staff and care at Devonshire has been the best thing about this nursery. My daughter has formed very good relationships with her key workers, which is great to lack of space in Bumbles for 2-3 year olds who are energetic. The area is quite cramped and there is very little light available (natural light).It would be nice to see the nursery incorporate other activities into their schedules e.g. Yoga, ball co-ordination (intro to sports) etc. Other nurseries in the area provide this. It would be nice to see the children go on more regular outings to the park, shops and local area.

- Really happy with the overall care in Bumblebees room, the staff are all fantastic and really put me at ease when my son first settled in the room. Our key person is so attentive and always gives detailed feedback about what he's been up to, she is so enthusiastic and passionate. Very helpful in prompting potty training.
- Great activities set out for the children e.g pyjama drama and action club.
- Overall, I feel the staff in Bumblees are more enthusiastic and give better feedback than in the Ladybirds room. I feel I know much more about what my son has been doing and his development that I did when he was in Ladybirds.

It's great to see my son look forward to going to nursery, he loves his main care giver and talks about her on his way to nursery. The staff looking after the kids are great, our 2 boys have been through all the different departments based on age.

The staff are attentive to childrens individual needs and development areas and focus on their individual needs as well as encouraging group development. The facilities are small, but the most is made of the space to provide a stimulating environment for the children. Carers/teachers are very attentive, caring and provide excellent feedback daily. They are keen to gain most of both parents and children.

We transitioned from the US in Jan 2015 and Devonshire was the easiest part of the process. The staff gave us a lot of guidance on teething, potty training, child colds etc. As first time parents without our normal family support system, the nursery has been invaluable. We love it here and our daughter's development has flourished from her communication to her confidence.

The quality and warmth of the staff looking after the children is excellent. The best reassurance is my daughter entering the room every day and giving kisses and hugs to the teachers.

A fantastic and caring nursery! After moving our daughter from another nursery that we weren't happy with, Devonshire Day Nursery has been more than expected. I feel I know exactly how my daughter is getting on and she has the same caring staff there for her. She is thriving and learning so much.

My daughter has been attending the nursery since she was 6 months old and we have been really pleased with the level of care and learning throughout the years. She is currently in the butterflies group and we feel the team and key person are very effective at preparing her for school in September. Her language, ability to write and recognise numbers and letters have really improved over the past couple of months. I also feel the activities the nursery has in place (pyjama drama and sporty champs) really provide a good support for the butterflies teachers team.
Obviously there is always room for improvement and the management have been quite responsive to some of the concerns that were raised last year through the parents forum (eg. meals, communication between management and the rest for the team). I would highly recommend the nursery to prospective parents.

My child is in the preschool class, they are very friendly and caring. She has attended since she was a baby. My daughter talks about sharing her ideas and things she has done at the weekend with her Key Person, whom she loves. They are very close! The management are very attentive and kind.
My daughter really enjoys it, it's like a second home to us. There is a good variety of activities, she especially loves the Pyjama Drama class. The rooms are very interesting for the children - they are decorated with different learning areas, and are bright and fun. I like the fact there are three meals offered during the day.

My daughter is continually stimulated at the nursery and seems to come home very day with a new word. The nursery has a family atmosphere and it's a home away from home for my daughter. The staff are attentive and caring.
