Reviews

9.7 Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.682)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.682 for Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre is calculated as follows: ( (230 Excellents x 5) + (105 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 336 Ratings = 4.682

  • 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 Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre is based on 21 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 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 17 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.

Thank you for taking such care and attention of my daughter over the last 4 years. She has loved being at nursery and has made great memories during her time here. Thanks to the staff she is ready for school, confident and happy. I can't thank you enough.

The staff are very helpful and caring. They always take time to find out how the children are each morning and explain how their day has been each evening. They contact us regularly and provide weekly newsletters. I know who to contact if I need anything. Both my daughter and son have been well cared for and development has been excellent.

We have had a fantastic time at Crocus Early Years. The staff have all been very caring and engaging and the twins love coming. The food is great and they have been particularly good with our fussy eater. The outside space is good and the range of activities and opportunities to learn are also first class. The twins will really miss it.

Our child has been at nursery from baby room and onwards and we have been impressed by the care and commitment throughout. Staff turnover has been low so our daughter has had a consistent key worker. She looks forward to going and is always happy when picked up. The team are all warm and the fact that we don't worry about our daughter when she is here speaks volumes.

Both my children have had a delightful time at Crocus Early Years. The staff are truly caring, supportive and professional. They've given my children a great basis for heading to school. So many outdoor and varied indoor activities; an onsite chef who prepares balanced, filling meals, good reporting procedures and a genuinely welcoming and understanding atmosphere.

The team at Crocus Early Years really encourage learning but in a fun way. The correspondence you get is regular and informative. The staff support you if there is something you want to help your child do e.g toilet training.
There is a good variety of food which my child loves. The nursery itself is bright, open and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

Both our children have gone through the nursery and have loved their experience here. They built strong relationships with all their key workers, including all the staff here. My daughter is a coeliac and if it wasn't for the excellent 6F diet provided to her- her recovery from diagnosis would not have happened so quickly. The staff did a fabulous job of making her feel included. We will miss all the staff here and so will our children.

Staff are fantastic - so caring towards the children and I trust them 100% with my baby.

It was a difficult time leaving my daughter at nursery at first, she was so young but the staff there made it so much easier for me.

The activities they do have really improved my daughter's skills especially social! She is so much better being around other children now.

Everything about being in this place has benefitted my daughter and I am so pleased I chose them.

The nursery is fantastic. My daughter loves going to nursery and will happily wave bye to me and even walks in the door as soon as it opens without holding my hand.
I cannot thank the staff enough for their dedication and care of my daughter. It is so evident they care about her wellbeing and growth. Would highly recommend the nursery to anyone looking. I trust them truly with my precious daughter.

Our daughter started nursery this month and the team at The Crocus have been very supportive to both our little girl and myself! We had not left our child in care before and had our concerns but the staff at the nursery helped us introduce our little girl to the setting in a way she felt relaxed as possible. Starting with an hour of play with me in the room and building up to her being left on her own for a whole morning session. Our daughter immediately bonded with her key worker which made dropping her off in the morning so much easier. Today she left me happily chatting about how she might get to see the "baby lambs" at the farm!
The Crocus have excellent food allergy policies which are re-assuring as our daughter has multiple food intolerances. They have gone out of their way to buy particular "free-from" products just for our daughter.

My eldest daughter attended nursery and preschool here and was very happy. She made some great friends during her time here and still talks about how much she misses it, even though she is now at (and enjoying) school. My youngest daughter recently started full time in the baby room and settled in really quickly. Overall we're very happy with the care of our children and the lovely supportive nature of all staff at the nursery.

Wonderful staff who take an interest in childrens development. The food provided is healthy and the menus seem well-balanced. At pick up the staff give information on how your child has been throughout the day, which is nice to hear. The baby room is clean and has plenty of activities for the children, as well as a small outside area when the weather is good. The location benefits from being close to the farm based at the High School and there are lovely playing fields around the nursery for walks.
My main issue was the staff retention during my daughters' time at the nursery. She had 4-5 different key workers during her year there, due to staff leaving. However, all them were lovely and my daughter has not suffered because of this.

Crocus early years have been fantastic from the minute we first visited. The staff are friendly and professional and cannot do enough for you, each and every member will go above and beyond the call of duty to help in any way. The environment in which the children play is nothing short of superb... it affords them enough freedom to run around and play but also provides structured learning. The Security in place on site puts your mind at rest immediately. Each key worker understands every child's needs. The dedicated chef cooks fresh nutritional meals every day that has our stomachs rumbling every time we pick up our son. We have one regret with this nursery and that is we didn't find it sooner.... could not recommend this nursery highly enough.

This is a fantastic nursery. They take great care of my little girl who has been there for a year and a half now. They have always had time to listen and help me out with any difficulties I have been having with my daughter. They are knowledgeable and able to give really helpful advice. My daughter loves it there and is really thriving.

Crocus is a lovely nursery in a great setting. My 2 children are thriving here. The staff know all of the children well (regardless of whether they are in their rooms) and are friendly, energetic and engaged. I love that the children regularly visit the farm in the grounds and they look forward to their musical movement classes each week.

I drop my daughter off every day knowing she is going to be well cared for.
She seems very happy to go to nursery and I enjoy hearing about all the different things they have been doing during the day from the friendly staff.
The staff are great and genuinely care about the children they look after.

This is a lovely nursery and I recommend it all the time. My eldest child finished here a year and a half ago and my youngest is still there. The staff are welcoming, kind and patient with the children and there's lots of different toys and games to do every day, which keeps things fun for the kids. There's also a lot of outdoor play and active learning, which has gone down well with my two. Both my children have bonded well with their key workers and made lots of friends. I also appreciate the time taken to speak to each parent at pick up to explain how the day went, what they ate, how long they slept etc. I missed this feedback when my eldest started big school!

The Crocus is a lovley nursery through to pre-school. It's primarily a nursery, which is my main use for Crocus, with the added bonus of a pre-school room. With both my two children, I can see the added value each room has had to their development. Baby room has provided exposure to other children, different toys and activities. The Rose Room (toddlers) has helped with socialisation, building friendships.
Pre-school provides the chance for my children to establish relationships. Prepare to be more independent.

Our daughter attended the nursery full time. In the whole time that she went she never once asked to not go to nursery which for me shows how much she enjoyed her time there - which in my view is the singularly most important opinion.
The staff at the nursery have been great and provided her with the love and care that she needed with all the cuddles and one-on-one time that she likes.
The food was amazing - the variety of food she got to try and expose her taste buds to different types of tastes and textures has made my life at home and for when we go out, much easier.

My only gripe would be the constraints placed upon the nursery in her learning wrt writing - in that they were not allowed to show them how to write unless the child expressed a specific interest - which for her was ok, because she did show an interest, but as they are teaching the children to count, I think the basics like learning to write their own names etc should be taught.

I definitely recommend Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre.

My daughter joined when she was 6 months old and loved every moment of her time with the staff and friends at Crocus. I was so grateful for the help and support I received, especially as a single mum working full time. The manager and her team are kind, caring and always very welcoming.
The nursery is in a great location and having access to the farm is an added bonus for the children. My daughter is now in reception and we will both have such fond memories thanks to Crocus. I would recommend to all - and even did, as my friend's daughter is now also there! A huge thank you!

My daughter spent over 2 years at Saffron Walden Crocus Early Years Centre from the age of 2 3/4 to nearly 5. My review mainly refers to preschool where she spent most of the time. The staff were consistent, caring and experienced. There were always a fantastic range of activities and the food was great. Management was superb, always available and attentive. I have been delighted with the care my child has received.

The staff are well trained related to their jobs, they can do any connection to asses the children according to education lines, they take care of the child wishes through observing them well. Staff are very good to provide the information to the parents about the child's likes and dislikes as they spend more time with them, especially the parents that work. Bright Horizons (Crocus Nursery at Saffron Walden) has good management.
