  • 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 4.842 for Christopher Robin Day Nursery - London Road (Guildford) is calculated as follows: ( (173 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

My daughter started at the nursery when she was ten months and now she is nineteen months. The place - the staff - the activities are amazing, my daughter is very happy and very well take care off. The staff is very professional and at the same time very friendly. I know that my daughter will be in security - have fun and develop every day she will go to the nursery.

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!

I have found all the staff and facilities at Christopher Robin - London Road excellent. The staff are so good with children and clearly enjoy their jobs which make a lovely environment to send your children. My daughter is very shy and they really take the time to talk to her and engage with her which I think has given her more confidence.

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

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.
