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 4.858 for Christopher Robin Day Nursery - London Road (Guildford) is calculated as follows: ( (343 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 394 Ratings = 4.858

  • 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 Christopher Robin Day Nursery - London Road (Guildford) 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

A fantastic nursery - I took to it from my first look around. The staff are warm and friendly but also professional. The spaces are well cared for and the communication with parents has really impressed me. I love getting the daily reports and checking the online portal. My 15-month-old had trouble with being left at first (crying when we arrived) but the staff were always so kind and reassuring with him. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough!

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are so delighted to hear that you are happy with the setting and will pass your warm words on to the nursery team.

My daughter started at Christopher Robin 3 weeks ago. I am very pleased with how well she has settled at the Pigletts room. Thanks to the experiences, patience and care given by the staff. She has already developed a bond with the nursery and is clearly enjoying it. The staff supported her routine, eating and sleeping habit and have been doing fun activities with her almost every day while she is there. The positive experiences have certainly exceeded my expectation. If the children could have a bigger room to walk around, that would be my only suggestion.

Thank you so much, Christina, for taking the time to write us such as positive review, it means a lot to the team.

My two children started at Christopher Robin London Road nursery when they were nine months old. The staff and manager have been fantastic and as a parent, I have always felt happy and reassured that they are being looked after well. The staff are caring and go above and beyond to make sure the children are happy. We have been so pleased with the key workers who have looked after our children over the last three years. They have been amazing and we are so sad to be leaving you!

Thank you so much to all the team.

I can not praise all the team at Christopher Robin enough. From the settling-in day, to the first days, we were all reassured. My child settled in really well and loved going to nursery. As parents, we loved seeing what activities she had been doing and how much fun he was having. He loved the baby room team and has been very well looked after.

My children have been going to this nursery for over 2 years now.
I initially felt apprehensive about leaving them but they have formed such lovely bonds with the staff, who are attentive and always supportive of their needs as individuals.
I could not be happier.
My children's development has come on leaps and bounds since they started.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Great nursery. Very pleased with the standard of care. My son is challenged daily and is constantly learning. He has great fun every day doing activities both inside and outside. They regularly play outside getting lots of fresh air. We are really pleased with this nursery and glad we picked here.

Christopher Robin - London Road is an excellent nursery.
My son is always upset at drop off and the staff are fantastic at settling him down quickly and putting my mind at rest.

My son is always so happy when I look in on him playing before pick up. He's making friends and becoming more confident and that's down to the great staff and facilities at the nursery.

Hi Yioda T, thank you so much for your warm words & positive feedback!

Superb nursery in a highly convenient location facing Stoke Park. The staff are attentive to the needs of each child they look after and they are all extremely caring. The facilities are excellent, but most importantly the children are happy and well cared for. Thank you to all the staff for looking after our children so very, very well.

My daughter has been at Christopher Robin (London Road) since she was 11 months old. She totally loves it and we have never once worried about her care. The staff are nothing short of amazing. My daughter has learnt so much whilst there, especially now she is enjoying the Montessori education along with weekly French lessons. Although expensive to some, I don't think you can put a price on someone else other than you caring for your child and we only wanted the best. In my eyes, we found it!

Hi A W, thank you so much for your kind words and positive feedback - it's wonderful to hear!

The staff could not be a more caring, friendly, knowledgeable team of professionals. They really did everything to help my 1-year-old settle in; she is so happy there.
The feedback you get each day is amazing, its really evident that they take time to get to know a child and care for them and their development.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are so delighted to hear that you are happy with the setting and will pass your warm words on to the nursery team.

When my daughter started at this nursery, I was so worried about how she'd fit in and cope. She had previously been to a different nursery and it was a constant battle to get her to detach from me in the morning, there were tears and tantrums galore. However, from the first day she visited Christopher Robin for her induction, she was ready for me to let her go. Every day now I struggle to get her to leave and come home. The staff are all fantastic and my daughter absolutely adores her key worker.

Every day she goes to the nursery, she comes home with new artwork that she's done and new words and knowledge that she has learnt from nursery. She seems to get on with all of the other children, and she's never said a bad word about the place (apart from the sauce that they sometimes put on lunch, but that's entirely up to my daughter being a fusspot at the moment).

I cannot recommend this nursery enough, and I'm hoping to send my daughter for more hours as soon as finances allow! Thank you!

Thank you so much, Rebecca M, for taking the time to write us such as positive review, it means a lot to the team.

My son started at this nursery at five months and I couldn't be happier with my choice. He is there two days a week.
He has a lovely, dedicated carer supported by a wonderful team who provide me with a clear and thoughtful written report (with pictures!) every day.
The atmosphere is warm and supportive, respectful of each child's individual personality and needs.
Activities are highly varied and good relationships between staff and parents are prioritised.
Most importantly my son seems very happy there!

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are so delighted to hear that you are happy with the setting and will pass your warm words on to the nursery team.

Having our daughter at nursery since she was 5 months old and now she has left to begin school, we cannot thank the nursery enough for the contribution they have played in her early years. She enjoyed her nursery days and will miss her friends and staff that she has had such great attachments with. We as a family, will miss you all and always hold happy memories of her days at nursery.

Since our daughter has started school in September, she has entered this next chapter with confidence. Being very independent in many ways and with the feedback from her school teacher, she has adapted very well to school life and settled straight in. In addition to hearing that, when she has been present of other challenging behaviour within the new environment of others, that she is aware how to behave and knows how to handle these situations appropriately. The guidance and support you have all given her to allow her to reach her highest potential is something we will always be grateful for.

Lucy McCoy, Website Administrator at Christopher Robin Day Nursery - London Road (Guildford) responded to this review on 13 Oct 2017:

Your feedback is invaluable to us and we really respect and appreciate your comments.

Our two children (two and three) go here four times per week, and the Christopher Robin in Burpham the other day. They have loved this nursery from the get go. They get three balanced meals, have flexible hours for a Montessori nursery and have a good garden with lots of activities.

My wife and I love it because the staff are all lovely and genuinely love kids. The turnover is very low, so there's a lot of consistency of care. The manager is hands on, meaning she is in the rooms, observing and helping and getting to know all the children. Being Montessori, they help our children stay independent, learning through play. We teach them manners but they learnt to ask to start their food and ask to get down from the table from nursery first!

The children love the staff and the other children. They don't seem to have issues with biting, bullying, fighting or anything else you worry about as a parent. They find it very easy to form friendships here.

Hi Chloe, thank you so much for your warm words and positive feedback!

Simply put Christopher Robin in London Road, Guildford has provided us with an outstanding solution for our childcare needs and it has been a safe haven for our children since 2011.

The staff have a high level of dedication to the care and development of the children they look after, so much so it’s admirable. We have always felt completely confident that our children have received the best care whilst they have been there. The staff took the time to get to know them individually and worked with their development in a group and also on a one to one basis.

We cannot recommend Christopher Robin, London Road highly enough. In our opinion, it is a well-run and extremely organised nursery with exceptional and highly qualified staff.

Fantastic place! The staff are brilliant committed and truly enjoy being with children.
My daughter took a long time to settle in (purely due to only going there just two days a week) but when she did there was a massive improvement in her social skills and general overall behaviour.
I have no concerns when she is there, the website access is great as I can check her development.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to review our nursery through daynurseries.co.uk.

I can't rate Christopher Robin high enough from the first settling in sessions to starting full time, all members of staff go above and beyond to make the whole family feel welcome and your children feel at ease. They do so much with the children and open them up to experiences I wouldn't be able to offer them at home, such as the messy play and special visits from fire engines and policemen to further their knowledge and experiences. Both my children attend, they never cry when I drop them off as they look forward to going!

Our experience with Christopher Robin has been fantastic. Our daughter settled in brilliantly, staff have all been friendly to me and caring and attentive to our daughter and communication has been excellent. Our daughter's dietary requirements and allergies have been handled with total professionalism and accommodated without question. We know that our daughter is flourishing in the happy and safe environment provided at Christopher Robin and we greatly value the care her key worker and everyone else is giving our daughter.

We've had my son in the nursery since April 2016 and he's been really happy here, settling in very quickly. It's a warm, nice place and the staff are great, kids seem to be very happy. He's now in the pre-school room and he's learning so many things, across all areas, even though he is only attending just a couple of days a week. We are very pleased with how he's been doing, the staff and management are top class, very helpful each time we needed help or support with anything. I would absolutely recommend the nursery to any of our friends, without hesitation.

Hi. Thank you so much for your kind words and positive feedback- it's wonderful to hear!

Since returning to work from maternity leave and our daughter joined at 5 months old, we have always been overwhelmed with the love, care and attention she has been given. The staff are caring and attentive to children's needs and the relationship with her first initial key person was always reassuring and we feel all staff have become and additional part of our family. She is very confident and keen to attend nursery! (Even asking at weekends!!) Our daughter is always very independent at home and since being at nursery, this has really developed from being given the opportunity of everyday tasks at nursery, she has learnt and gained confidence.

Thank you Shazna for all your support!

I was very nervous leaving my daughter at nursery even though she was 2.5. However both she and I felt instantly at ease on the settling in days. This meant I and therefore my daughter were absolutely fine on her first full day and ever since. My daughter loves the teachers, the children and the toys! Her speech has improved tremendously and her vocabulary has widened also. I feel that my daughter has settled very easily and is very happy. The teachers are so enthusiastic and happy that the children embrace everything- it's lovely to see!!

Hi Jo, thank you so much for your warm words and positive feedback!

I have two children at Christopher Robin Day Nursery London Road and both children have thrived at this nursery. The staff are fantastic - excellent with the children and always friendly and smiley. The staff encourage the kids' interests and tailor activities to their individual needs which I really appreciate. Both the kids look forward to going to nursery, which I know from friends elsewhere isn't always the case.
The management is really good and responds to any feedback and are always really helpful and kind.
I couldn't recommend this place more.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and all the support you give to Christopher Robin Day Nursery.

We had moved our daughter to Christopher Robin Day Nursery when she was 3 from another nursery which had been failing in its level of care. We had no hesitation in placing our 1-year-old son here. If the opening hours were slightly longer especially in the morning, it would enable daddy to drop him more often but this is a minor detail. The staff are fantastic and the tone is set by the manager who is excellent. We love the daily report form that they give for the younger babies. If there were only a verbal handover, parents would forget most of it by the time they get home.

Hi D S, thank you for your kind review! Your feedback is invaluable to us and we really respect and appreciate your comments.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 10 months old and she is now 3. The nursery has provided excellent loving care for my daughter through all her stages. There are separate rooms for different age groups, making it very appropriate especially for babies. The nursery has already provided lots of cuddles and reassurance for my daughter which I highly value. Her all-around development has been totally enhanced by the nursery, her language and communication skills are excellent which is partly due to the nursery. My daughter loves going to nursery and I feel 100% comfortable leaving my daughter at nursery, which is very important to me. I cannot recommend the nursery enough.

Hi, Thank you so much for your kind words and positive feedback- it's wonderful to hear!

My 3 year old has been at this nursery for 2 years (the first year at the other site before they moved to London Road), and she has always loved it. What makes this nursery so good is the fantastic team, who build great relationships with the children and are so welcoming and caring. My daughter seems to learn so much here while having lots of fun, and she always comes home happy and tired. I would absolutely recommend this nursery, I'm so glad we found it.
