9.8 Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.796)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) 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 53 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 33 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 4.796 for Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) is calculated as follows: ( (516 Excellents x 5) + (105 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 633 Ratings = 4.796

  • 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 Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) is based on 33 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 19.4 positive Reviews (97 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 33 Reviews ÷ 19.4 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.

We transferred our son (two years old) to this nursery a couple of months ago from another local nursery and we are so pleased we did - he is thriving in this welcoming, engaging environment and is happy to go to nursery again. The staff in his room already know him well and are recognising areas they can help him with, and activities he really enjoys so he can capitalise on those. He particularly loves the garden and is allowed to be outside frequently, which is not an option at many of the other nurseries we looked at. I would not hesitate to recommend Pennypot to other parents looking for a safe and happy environment for their children.

My daughter has been coming for 3 years since she was 6 months old and have experienced excellent care in all the rooms. In particular, her key worker, in (Caterpillars), was outstanding at helping her settle in as a baby and gave me lovely personal updates every day - extremely reassuring to a mum returning to work. I hope she can be the key worker when my next little one starts nursery! another lady in (preschool) has also been excellent in finding practical ways to help her settle when she switched days and changed friendship groups. Think the friendly and personal atmosphere is set from the top and fed down to all the other staff so that we never go in without the manager and every other staff member smiling and welcoming the children in for the day. Most importantly my daughter enjoys going, loves the range of activities and talks happily about all the grown-ups she deals with and I have never had any doubts about the standard of care she has received. I thoroughly recommend Pennypot Day Nursery.

Our daughter has been attending Pennypot for 18 months now and in our experience all staff have been terrific over this time. They form a lovely bond with all carers and it is clear to us that our daughter especially loves her current key worker. The facilities are great, it always looks fun to learn in and our daughter always seems happy to be there which is obviously extremely reassuring.

My children have attended Pennypot since earlier this year and have had an excellent experience overall. The outdoor area is outstanding and all the members of staff have the children's best interests at heart. The variety of experiences is immense and the children learn very well through play and planned activities.

The nursery management team is excellent.

My son started at Pennypot when he was one, I was so nervous. The staff were so great at reassuring me and also at settling him in. They really took the time to understand his needs and kept to the routine we had at home. They do so many activities, I quickly saw that he was having a great time there and he loves his key workers so much. As well as the range of activities and the lovely surroundings, the staff really make the nursery first class.
I'm so pleased we chose Pennypot and will be recommending the nursery to friends.

We are delighted with Pennypot Nursery, we could not imagine using anywhere else. The staff have been amazing since the first time we came to visit and we feel like part of a huge extended family there. All of the staff strive to maintiain this impression and it is apparent that many of the other parents we see feel the same way. My daughter clearly loves her time there and is delighted by all the messy activities and the variety of the toys she can play with.

This nursery has been fantastic for my child who absolutely loves being there. They do interesting activities with the children. The staff are lovely and caring and the children have fun. It's also kept beautifully, serves good food and has a great outdoor space. I'd highly recommend that people see for themselves, it's exceptional :)

It is never easy to leave your new baby with someone else, but since my son started at Pennypot aged 6 months he has been so well looked after.
His keyworker has been wonderful with him and I love all the updates and photos of the activities they get up to on Parentzone.
I would highly recommend Pennypot Day Nursery.

My daughter started at Pennypot around 3 months ago and has settled in extremely quickly, thanks to the great staff their. She is always talking about her favorite members of staff and we have already seen such improvement in her speech and numbers. She has learned to interact with others which is something she used to struggle with. I cant speak highly enough of the staff.

My daughter has been going to Pennypot Day Nursery two days a week for the last three years and we have been delighted with it from day one.
The management and all the staff at the nursery are fantastic and the standard of care that our daughter has received has been first class from the baby room right through to pre-school.
We have been extremely pleased with how she has developed throughout her time there and it has been so lovely to review the learning journals & have regular contact with her key worker to see how she is getting on, which has been made even easier now with the introduction of the online portal.
As she prepares to start big school in September we really feel that the nursery as a whole has been fantastic and most recently the pre-school room have been really preparing her for the start of reception.
We couldn't be happier with Pennypot and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely, caring nursery for their child. Many thanks to all the staff

My son's new key worker won The Professional Development Award from 100's of people whilst studying for an Early Years Degree. I have been very impressed by her passion, commitment and her willingness to experiment new methodologies with her pre-school level kids which in turn showed great responses and results before kids started school. My son has attended Pennypot Day Nursery for almost three years and the staff has been very caring throughout.

Pennypot Chobham has been an important part of both our girl's lives, our family and their development. From the time our daughter started in the 'Caterpillars' room the team there was amazing, so warm and welcoming.
Then when both girls were in 'Ladybirds' the 2 practitioners in there were people we could not have done without.
The practitioners take their roles very seriously but at the same time maintain the warmth and fun elements needed for this job.
It's not easy and the team here do an amazing job.
Thank you.

The staff and facilities at Pennypot are simply superb. Our daughter can be seen developing steadily into a confident, well-mannered, creative and intelligent little girl.
Staff have nurtured her interests and guided her interaction with other children so well, that she is friends with all her peers.
They certainly go the extra mile compared to other nurseries we have seen/been to.

I don't always get a lot of feedback when our key worker isn't there about what my child has done that day.

Our child has been at Pennypot part time for the past 1.5 months in Caterpillars and I can honestly say I think the nursery is wonderful. It's a big thing leaving an 8-month-old with other people all day but I always feel confident our child is in the best care and is having a wonderful time. Our lead carer is brilliant - warm, caring and observant - providing detailed feedback on our child's development and needs.

A lovely nursery. My son comes home every day tired from all the day's activities. The staff are great and provide the utmost care for all the little ones. The outside area is amazing as well, lots of activity stations to play with.
Since being at the nursery he has grown in confidence and cheekiness, and the mobile app is good for keeping up to date with his progress.

Choosing a nursery is not a simple task. Leaving your child completely in the hands of what are initially complete strangers is a leap of faith. So when my wife and I looked at nurseries for our little boy we had a strict list of criteria. Would he learn, would he have fun - but most of all, would he be cared for and made a priority? Pennypot delivers.
They were patient with our son, they were kind to him. And they made him feel safe and loved. He's gone in and in a matter of a few weeks from a boy who was struggling to have a nap, eat much or take a bottle, to a real part of the nursery, eating, sleeping, drinking and laughing. Lots of laughing.
We can see that he really enjoys being with the Pennypot staff who do exactly what we needed. Make him a priority. But not just our son. Every day the staff courteously greet us, and him of course. They give us an update on his day, taking genuine delight when he has done something new. Thank you Pennypot - Our son loves it with you!

We have been sending our children to Pennypot Nursery for just over three years now. Our first child 'graduated' last summer and she is now thriving in the nursery at her new infant school. We have every confidence that her time at Pennypot prepared her well and gave her a great advantage in the challenges involved when starting at a new school.

We still have two children at Pennypot and continue to be very pleased with the standard of care and education delivered by the staff. The facilities are great - the quiet location and outdoor space are brilliant especially in the warmer months when the children seem to spend all their time playing outside in the fresh air.

Our children have special educational needs too and we feel that those are handled well by the staff and we can see the effort they have gone to in accommodating these needs.

When dropping off the children in the morning, they walk into Pennypot happily and eager to start their day and we feel that says it all!

I have nothing but praise for Pennypot nursery. My daughter began when she was one year old and has attended for two and a half years now. Her development has been very pleasing and her care has been exemplary - always thoughtful and with the best interests of the child at the forefront of nursery practitioners' minds. Through the early stages of toddlerhood to the bright, active pre-schooler, she now is, my daughter has always enjoyed attending nursery and talks of her friends and carers fondly. Times, when separation from me was a bit difficult, were always sensitivity managed. The learning activities are well-planned, varied and appropriately challenging for her age and stage. The nursery practitioners have also supported us as first- time parents! We will be sad to say goodbye to Pennypot next summer.

I could not recommend Pennypot Day Nursery (Chobham) enough. The care and attention my little boy receives is outstanding. They provide amazing, stimulating activities from painting, spaghetti play and gloop to spending time in the garden and exploring the outdoors. He receives amazing care and attention from his keyworker as well as the other carers in his room. You can tell my son has had an amazing day at nursery as he is always full of smiles on collection.

My daughter has been at Pennypot for 8 weeks now and she is loving it. She had only ever been apart from me for a couple of hours a handful of times so adjusting to nursery was very difficult and unsettling for both of us but the staff were absolutely fantastic. I got regular updates throughout the day and my daughter was cuddled and fussed constantly.
She now loves her time at nursery and waves me goodbye quite happily.
The change in her has been incredible and she is learning so much every day. The girls in her room are absolutely fantastic and I trust them 100% with my precious girl.

Our son loves going to Pennypot Nursery. He really enjoys the Caterpillar room and all the activities the children undertake every day. Every day at nursery is different, he spends lots of time with his main carer who he's become very close to. I really feel that she knows him very well which allows her to care for his individual needs. This makes me very confident that he is in outstanding care there. He also gets on well with all the other carers and every single one of them is so lovely. They all genuinely care for the children and make them feel so welcome. I love the fact that the children spend time outside in the garden. Personally, I think there is a great balance between indoor and outdoor play. What's also great at Pennypot Nursery is the focus on the children's education and development. Our son has learnt so much in the last couple of months and is progressing very well. I'm excited every day when I pick him up to see what new skills he has developed. I highly recommend it!

Our son loves the preschool room and is excited about telling us the new things he learned. I especially like the structure and thought that's gone into the preschool program and I'm sure that he'll arrive at school full of confidence as a result.

My daughter's time at Pennypot will soon come to an end. Both my children have been through so after 5 very happy years it is the end of an era. They loved it from day one and have both flourished here. The staff are excellent - friendly and loving and all seem to know all the children regardless of the rooms they're in. It is a light and airy purpose built nursery with excellent outdoor spaces which the children use in all weathers (appropriately dressed of course!). They have enjoyed visits from a mobile farm, eggs hatching into chicks in an incubator, and watching tadpoles change into frogs. Thanks to Pennypot my daughter is about to start school knowing the 1st 3 phases of her phonics and reading simple one syllable words - she hasn't been pushed but because she has shown an interest and a willingness to do it she has been helped and encouraged and time has been spent with her on it. This is clearly a happy and well run nursery - 11 out of 10 Pennypot, we will miss you all dearly!

It is the first nursery for my daughter. She has settled very well and seems to be very happy. She has already showed improvement on her manners at the table and speaking and socialising with others.

Pennypot Nursery was a last-minute viewing, as I had experienced a change of heart with the nursery I had initially registered my child with. The staff were friendly and welcoming from day one, even changing the little ones nappy on his first visit! The staff are always great to chat to and were very sensitive to my child's needs in the first few weeks as he would get very upset watching other parents collect their children, so they created another play area for him so he would not notice as much!
My child has been at Pennypot for 7 months now and has simply blossomed into a mini-adult! The staff seem very content and positive at Pennypot which I believe does filter down to the children who in turn, seem very content and stimulated. My child has come such a long way from the 1 year old that was placed at Pennypot in December 2015 and I have the most brilliant staff at Pennypot to thank, for creating an amazing environment for children to flourish in.

This nursery in Chobham is an excellent example of how nurseries should be run in the UK.
The staff are caring, supportive and work at the individual level of each child. The nursery is laid out excellently with appropriate facilities and play areas for different age groups. Children's progress is monitored daily and recorded.
Parents can access information and progress reports easily and are always consulted on issues as may arise. I have seen and experienced all the work of the nursery as described above and can only commend the high quality and standard of work.

We have two children at Pennypots full time and we could not be happier with the standard of care. From day one we have found the nursery and all the staff to be incredibly warm, professional and accommodating.

Our eldest son has progressed really well with all aspects of his development and learning, he has made some brilliant friends and is incredibly well mannered thanks to Pennypots. He looks forward to going every day and is disappointed it is closed at weekends! Our youngest son enjoys all the messy play and painting but most of all eating all the lovely food!!! The children are taught how to behave during play and mealtimes as well as how to listen and treat others.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Pennypots to any prospective parent.

My daughter is 17 months old and has been attending Pennypot full time from the age of 11 months. We couldn't be happier with the care she has received. All the staff are excellent; caring, helpful, professional and always friendly. My daughter has settled in so well and she genuinely loves going to nursery, she even says "yay" as we turn in the drive in the mornings! All the staff take an interest in each and every child, even the management team are always telling me stories of seeing her during the day and what she was doing as I walk through reception. She has had two incredible key workers who have fostered a very special bond with her and made leaving her every day that little bit easier. I strongly believe she is developing as well as she is due to the special learning environment the staff foster and the love and sense of security they give her.

From the management team, the senco, my children's key worker to the rest of the staff Pennypot Day Nursery has given us everything and more, we could wish for in a nursery. I have 2 children at Pennypot Day Nursery on with additional needs and they continue to go above and beyond for him (and my other child). The team are professional, yet caring, approachable at all times and always have the time to talk things through. I cannot talk highly of them enough so much so I have (and will continue to) recommend them to friends/acquaintances. I hope everyone there know how valued they are by us especially.

Fantastic nursery with brilliant staff! My daughter has been going since 8 months old and I has never looked back she loves it!! I'm lucky to get s goodbye at drop off as she runs into the arms of one of the staff members! Clearly all the staff love what they do. Always kept fully informed about what my daughter is doing and new things she has learnt and can do. Her sister will be joining her in 2017 having seen many other nurseries before Pennypot I wouldn't send them anywhere else! Highly recommended.

Fabulous nursery, professional staff who truly love what they do. My son found it hard to adjust at first but with dedicated members of staff he now adores going to Penny Pot. They gave him time to adjust with lots of one on one attention showing an interest in particular things he liked and calmed him down, even collecting balloons from reception on occasion as he adores them. He has truly bonded with his main carer who ensures his needs are met and goes above and beyond to keep him happy and have a fab day every time he attends nursery.

My boy started his Pennypot life in last September when he was 2 year old. As he had just moved from China to a completely different environment I was quite concerned about if the transition period could be smooth enough to avoid any emotional and psychological negative impacts. Now five months passed everything turned out to be perfect. He is willing to go to nursery every morning, learning lots of living skills, speaking more and more words, etc. Most importantly, the boy has always been happy and healthy.
In Pennypot, everyone child has a smile on face. The teachers are knowledgeable on what they do and they love the children as much as the parents do. This is a place where people care about each other with all the love and dedication.

I, myself have known Pennypot Nursery staff for a while as family and friends work there. Placing my child in this nursery has been wonderful, not just because I have family and connections, but because the staff are friendly and down to earth. They are incredible.
I am a single mother, that works and gets help to provide childcare for my daughter, while I go out to pay the bills too. The nursery have been so understanding and considerate for my situation and organised in helping my daughter settle, and also around my work hours.
The care is 100% top quality. I feel safe knowing my daughter is in good hands. She comes home with a smile on her face which to me, is what mothers want to see every day.

We started our son at Pennypot Day Nursery mid way through last year. The management team were very helpful and all of the staff made his induction very easy and he settled very quickly. He is very comfortable with the environment and likes the activities and food, the warm, friendly staff instantly make you feel at ease and safe in the knowledge that your child is in safe hands. Overall we are extremely happy with Pennypot Day Nursery and would recommend it very highly.

My son enjoys nursery and has built a strong relationship with the staff. They are always there to greet him in the mornings with smiles to help him settle. I would happily recommend this nursery to friends. Staff have a great connection with my son. He is very happy here, he loves the outdoor playtime. He always has a smile on his face after spending the day here.

Children love it at Pennypot. They always have a good time but what they didn't realise is that they are learning all the time through play. Food is good and healthy, all cooked onsite and that's what we like about it too. All meals comes with dessert and all breakfast is accompanied with fruit. It's reassuring for us to know they eat well as that is important for us.

My boys have attended Pennypot since they were 1 year for my first and 10 months for my second. I have felt that Pennypot was a very big part of my life for the past 6 years. My second son graduated (lovely!) last week and with great sadness we all said goodbye. As a teaching and learning leader for KS1, I cannot speak highly enough for the care and learning opportunities that the nursery provides. My boys have had the very best start to their education and a lot of fun along the way. I have had a few occasions where they have cried going in and NEVER left the premises unhappy. Having watched on the screen in the office I have seen how soon the tears stopped - no more than 10 occasions for both children in 6 years! The staff are great, SO happy with every part of the day, food is great, facilities/ resources excellent.
