9.8 CherryTown Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.823)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for CherryTown Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for CherryTown Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.823 for CherryTown Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (178 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 215 Ratings = 4.823

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for CherryTown Nursery is based on 17 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

CherryTown is a fantastic Nursery that I would always recommend to anyone. I now have a 2nd child attending and he loves all the activities that they do, especially making anything.
He loves playing in their large garden and their soft play area, which is a great bonus.

I have had 2 children go through Cherry Town nursery and 1still attending. All of my children love the nursery and have very good memory at Cherry Town. All the staff are lovely at Cherry Town which makes it easier to leave my child at the nursery. The nursery has a lovely big garden and a great soft play room.

Brilliant team of carers and very homely atmosphere. Our little monster is attending CherryTown now for 13 months and we can say he loves going there. Lots of attention paid to learning new skills. We are very happy with the service CherryTown provides for us and our little monster!

Thank you for your review and we are glad your 'little monster' enjoys his time here.

The 'learn through play" and close monitoring of development is self-evident and we have seen both our boys grow very positively in knowledge, manners, behaviours and skills. The relationships between staff and our boys are excellent; After four years and two boys in CherryTown we remain supremely confident in the preparation the boys have received for school, and the boys themselves would echo our recommendations to friends.

Thank you for your review. We are glad both your boys have enjoyed their time here.

I have two children in the nursery at the moment and right from the start they have enjoyed coming and you can see how they have developed through the support of all the team members. My eldest is now in pre-school and through the guidance of the staff, she is on her way ready to start school in September.

My youngest is in the babies room and the interaction he has with his friends and staff is beautiful to watch. I'm very lucky that all staff at the nursery are passionate in child care and this shows in all activities and the stories I get told each day by my children. The food they receive is perfect for them and gives them a balanced diet with variety. The facilities are perfect and constantly challenges their development. Great nursery and would recommend them.

I was nervous about my son starting nursery, however, the staff put my mind at ease straight away and I was confident that coming to the nursery was good for him. The staff are attentive, proactive and highly skilled. My child loves coming to nursery and I have seen a huge leap in his development since he started. I cannot rate the nursery and staff highly enough.

I love all the activities available including French and Yoga!
Most important I think is my little girl is very happy and look forward to coming to Nursery.

My son has attended CherryTown since he was 10 months old and he has loved his time in the baby room, little learners and now pre-school. All the staff are fantastic with the children and a real credit to the nursery. The range of activities the children are immersed in is great, and the garden is a particular favourite with my son.

Thank you for your review. We are glad your son has enjoyed his time in all of our rooms.

My son has been attending CherryTown since 2.5 years of age and I can highly recommend it.
He has attended other nurseries at a very early age and I have felt other nurseries have not provided the same standard as CherryTown.
Throughout his learning journey I have been so pleased with how well he has adapted and thrived in this environment.
The staff at CherryTown have been wonderful throughout his stages and I don't think I could praise them enough for the love and support they have shown him.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending other friends/family or anyone for that matter to enrol their children here.
Well done CherryTown.

Thank you for your review on the nursery, we are glad you are happy here.

Our 16-month-old son has been attending CherryTown since last September.
We immediately felt at ease during our first visit to the nursery. The children all looked happy and the facilities especially the garden are wonderful.
Initially, we were nervous about leaving him but it's clear he enjoys his time there and has a close bond with all of the staff in the baby room.
We are so pleased we found CherryTown.
The staff make it such a nurturing, fun place and there's always so much for the children to get involved with.
I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear your son enjoys his time here.

Having moved to the area, I have had experience of other nurseries and this is far the best. I now have two children at the nursery and both of them love being there and often do not want to leave. The garden is huge which is great for my son who loves being outside. There are always activities going on often linked to a theme or event. My son is also lucky enough to learn French which he loves. Well done to all the staff who work at Cherrytown, they all play a part to make the children happy, stimulated and cared for.

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear your children enjoy their time at Cherrytown.

When we moved to the area we looked at a number of the local nurseries but we felt that CherryTown was the best fit for our son's needs. At no point were we ever to rue our decision and the care and attention he received from the staff there was brilliant from day one right up until he left the nursery in August before starting at Infant School.
Despite having been gone from CherryTown for almost 6 months he still talks about his "little school" regularly and remembers all of the staff from the pre-school room with much fondness and affection. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or send any future children to this nursery.

Thank you for your lovely review. The pre-school room staff will be happy to hear that your son still talks about them. Hope he is getting on well at school.

My son left this nursery last year, but I could not fault them in any way. He excelled in this place beyond what I expected and entered into school confident, ready and prepared, the hardest part of leaving the nursery was the staff - they were amazing with him.

I can safely say when we decide on another child this is the place they will be going to.

Good luck for the future girls!

Thank you for your review on Cherrytown Nursery. We are glad to hear that your son has had a great start to school and hope that he is enjoying his time there.

CherryTown is a fantastic nursery set in excellent accommodation with great staff. My 2 and a half-year-old son has been in attendance for over a year and thoroughly enjoys his days there. He has learnt so much whilst attending CherryTown and is surprising me every day with how advanced he is because of their excellent staff and how they are nurturing him to learn whilst having fun.
I am very confident that he is looked after very well and I receive regular updates on his progress as well as daily updates via a parent link app recently introduced on my smart phone and also verbally when I collect him. A warm and friendly environment with passionate staff who obviously love their jobs and children.

Laura Gregory, Acting Manager at CherryTown Nursery responded to this review on 24 Jan 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments, we are pleased to hear that your son enjoys his time with us at Cherrytown.

We decided CherryTown was the perfect nursery for our baby. We viewed all the local nurseries and felt the staff were very friendly and genuinely seemed to love what they do. The nursery has a lovely atmosphere and all the children were happy when we visited and clearly had good relationships with the staff as does our son now.
Since starting here, it is clear we made the right decision. Our little boy is thriving and is always extremely happy to go to the staff who work in the baby room.
The rooms are not huge and because of this they only take a small amount of children which we felt was a positive factor and the garden certainly makes up for this. We would much rather our son be outside in the fresh air.

A team that have shown a very high level of professionalism and dedication for the whole time. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and you have given your full care and attention to my little man! You are indeed very special people. My son has developed into a very confident and responsible child and he is well prepared to start primary school. This is all due to the high level of support and encouragement he has received at CherryTown Nursery. I have every confidence in all of you and I would not hesitate to recommending CherryTown Nursery to all my family and friends.

I would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU and all your members of staff for all the wonderful work you have done with my son and he would miss you all very much!
