Reviews

9 CherryVale Nursery has a Review Score of 9 (9.018)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for CherryVale 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 CherryVale Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 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 4.81 for CherryVale Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (177 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 4.208 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for CherryVale Nursery is based on 5 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 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.208

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

Both our children have attended CherryVale and loved every moment. They developed and gained confidence over the years. They have both had some lovely staff looking after them and we appreciate all the hard work.

Our daughter was with CherryVale Nursery for almost 2 years (from 8 months old). From day one we were overwhelmed at how friendly and caring ALL the staff have been. They have been so happy during her time there and I cannot fault anything. We are really sad to be moving away but we know that my daughter had the best start in life under the CherryVale team. We never worried about her. Thank you so much.

We have always been very happy with our experience of the nursery. The staff are kind and caring, they always make a fuss of our children when they're coming in or going home.

My second child is now at CherryVale Nursery and I really can't fault anything they do. All the staff in each of the rooms have been fantastic with both my children. The activities are varied, stimulating and fun for my two (both extremely energetic and easily bored!) The outside space is a huge bonus - the best I've seen from any nursery. I feel 100% confident my child is totally looked after and loved. Can't recommend highly enough. Very expensive but worth it!

Throughout our time using CherryVale we were at ease with the staff, carers and environment that our child had. They are caring, reassuring and excellent at what they do. The leadership has allowed my wife and I to address our concerns quickly and they have been able to offer help and advice to get the best for our child.

My daughter has attended Cherry Vale full time since she was six months old - she is now 4. From the baby room to the preschool room the facilities and staff have been excellent throughout. During her 4 years at Cherry Vale the staff have always been caring, friendly, engaged, motivated, and enthusiastic, and develop excellent relationships with the children. They are creative in coming up with activities and messy play and no two days are the same. My daughter loves going to nursery and the staff have helped her develop into a sociable, polite, and imaginative child. They have supported her development in every aspect - from self care through to phonics and numeracy - so that she is more than ready for school. The facilities and play areas (inside and out) are great and give her opportunities to learn and play in ways she wouldn't be able to at home. Her younger sister will be starting soon - so here's to another four years with Cherry Vale!

I am a single parent and was very worried about managing my home life with an eight month old, full time work, and doing both well. I visited the nursery when researching childcare and I was sold immediately. I am so pleased my daughter goes there each day. The facilities are superb including the food, the toys, the games, and the safeguarding. I have every faith that my daughter is being cared for well. However, most importantly i hugely recommend the staff. Each morning I am met by enthusiastic and happy staff who clearly love working there. My daughter just loves them! Each day when I pick my daughter up I really appreciate the time they take to tell me all the things she has been up to. I love the fact that they are as enthusiastic about her activities as I would be had I spent the day with her. I feel that I am sharing it with them. They complete a form and the detail they include makes it clear that they do it because they want to, not because they have to. Hugely recommended.

Our daughter started here in December 2015 after we moved house. She has been at another nursery previously, she settled in very quickly, she loves coming here and happily waves me goodbye in the morning.
I feel very happy leaving my precious daughter in an environment she is obliviously so happy in. She has come on leaps and bounds since she started. A lonely nursery with excellent caring staff.

Thoroughly pleasant every time I arrive to collect or drop off my daughter. All of the staff are polite and could not be more helpful. The food is cooked fresh everyday and the variety of menu is exceptional, it really helped my daughter try new things and she isn't at all fussy like a lot of children can be.

Our daughter had previously been with a childminder but it had started to feel as if she had outgrown there and would benefit more from a nursery. After visits to several nurseries we came to visit Cherryvale and both fell in love with the place straight away.

Our daughter has been at Cherryvale, in the toddlers room, for the past 7 weeks and I am so glad we made the switch. Her confidence has come on leaps and bounds since starting, as have her vocabulary and sentence structuring.

She is more than happy to go in every session and when I collect her she is always excited to show me what exciting things she has been up to. The staff are all amazing and friendly and know all of the children by name, even children not in their room. It really is a very friendly, nurturing environment and I am so glad our daughter loves it as much as we do.

Caring, supportive, engaged, are just a few of the words I would use to describe the amazing staff at Cherryvale Nursery. Both of my children attend the nursery and are both so happy there. My eldest will be leaving to go to school in September and, thanks to the work of the staff at Cherryvale, he is more than ready to begin his next big adventure (in fact, he is already achieving many of the things I am being told he is not expected to achieve until he has completed reception class at school). My youngest has started in the baby room and is just about to move into Tiny Todds, he loves his time at nursery and is always really happy to see the staff in his room. The facilities are excellent, there are great play areas inside and out, a dedicated IT room and the resources in all of the rooms are second to none. Thank you Cherryvale for taking such good care of my boys!

Cherryvale is a wonderful nursery. I am glad I found it as it is some distance away from where I live. All the staff friendly and very helpful. My daughter is very happy in there. They have plenty of indoor and outdoor space. I have always seen kids involved in one activity or another and space is not an issue. I totally believe that Cherryvale provides safe environment for my daughter and other children. Definitely recommend this nursery.

A fantastic nursery, I could not be happier sending my daughter to Cherry Vale nursery. My daughter has been attending since aged 11 months and is now 2 1/2. I have watched her develop into a polite, caring and confident little girl under the watchful eye of her CDS. The nursery staff are friendly, caring and put the children's welfare and development at the forefront. The information and feedback the nursery staff give on a daily basis is fantastic and I can go to work confident my child will be cared for and developed while having loads of fun. I could be more pleased with my choice of nursery for both my children.
