Reviews

9.5 Little Cherubs has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.500)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Little Cherubs is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Cherubs in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.5 for Little Cherubs is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 Little Cherubs is based on 9 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 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 5.6 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.

Little Cherubs' is a wonderful nursery. Before my son started in the baby room I was concerned that the nursery was very small. It is small but very homely and cosy and the staff are just fabulous. My son loves it. The 7 am start is a godsend. This is the only nursery I found that offers such an early start.

I highly recommend Little Cherubs - The manager is superb and sets a great tone for the nursery. My little one is very happy there and the staff are engaged and very caring. He has a strong bond with lots of the staff. They are really flexible and accommodating and understand the demands on working parents.

The communication with parents is great and there are very sweet parent / seasonal events etc.

It's also amazingly located for the train station!

I am very impressed by the progress my son has made while being at Little Cherubs nursery. He is very happy to go into nursery and loves the teachers. The teachers are friendly and caring towards the children and give individual attention to each child. Very clean and welcoming atmosphere.

My son started at Little Cherubs nursery when he was 8 months old and stayed until he was 22 months old (had to take him out due to being made redundant).

From the moment he started, it was as if he lived there. He was happy to be left and 'just got on with it'. This did make me feel a little unwanted, but at the same time, happy and comfortable in the knowledge that he was happy to be left with those that looked after him.

Although smaller than some of the chain nurseries, Little Cherubs has a very homely feel and they were always very welcoming and kind towards my little whirlwind! Providing, for me, a very high standard of care. Getting to know him personally and building very good relationships with myself and my son.

My son's time at Little Cherubs has been invaluable to his development and to me as a parent, it's important that my son was happy to attend nursery. And not once did I have a day where he didn't want to go in. Even when he was ill.

Little Cherubs is a fantastic nursery, in which children are given the chance to individually grow and develop whilst under guiding help from the staff. With classrooms full of vibrant colours and learning initiatives, and all children encouraged to be their own person, whilst actively engaging with other children, preparing them for School life.
There is a family feel to the nursery which many large establishments fail to provide. The staff are friendly, approachable, and the manager really cares about every child in the nursery which is a nice asset and a refreshing change to those who are not as involved in the nurseries they manage.

Whilst watching 3 children grow up at Little Cherubs, I cannot recommend them any more highly.

Both of our sons have had a very good experience at Little Cherubs. The staff are very friendly, helpful and considerate, and have been a big part of their development (from around eight months to three and a half, in our oldest son's case).
The activities are great and very varied – they particularly enjoy the musical visits – and we always get good feedback and pointers about their behaviour etc. They have made good friends with other children and feel very comfortable with all the staff.
We'll always be grateful to Little Cherubs for the part they've played in helping our children along.
It's not the biggest nursery in the world but there is a nice intimacy and family feel as a result. We would recommend it.

Staff are all friendly and welcoming. They make the most out of the small spaces. I would like to see more active learning and structure for the +3's. However, most importantly my child is happy and has made lots of friends during the small time she has been at Little Cherubs. She loves all of the staff and has lots to talk about at the end of the day.

Having had a rocky start with a different nursery we were anxious about leaving our twins anywhere. However Little Cherubs completely eliminated our concerns. Our twins are so happy and my partner and I are just so pleased with our choice of nursery. It's fantastic. The staff are lovely and we have complete trust in them.
