Reviews

9.8 Cherubs Kimberley has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.796)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Cherubs Kimberley 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 63 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherubs Kimberley 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 Cherubs Kimberley is calculated as follows: ( (621 Excellents x 5) + (122 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 755 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 Cherubs Kimberley 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 33 Reviews ÷ 18 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 are extremely satisfied with the way our child has progressed over the last few months. She has developed incredibly fast, her speech, activities, thinking, behaviour, in general, has come on leaps and bounds. This is all down to Cherubs Kimberley and their wonderful staff. We have nothing but praise for Cherubs Kimberley. They are doing a fantastic job, keep up the good work. I have no worries at all whatsoever.

Thank you for your lovely feedback. I will pass it on to the team.

I have my 2 daughters go to Cherubs Kimberley and I am very satisfied with how they look after my children. Very thorough, professional, thoughtful and kind. When I leave the twins with the lovely nursery assistants at Cherubs, I know they are very happy and settled especially when they are waving and saying goodbye to mummy. Their development is coming along beautifully with saying lots of words at home. Identifying shapes, colours and numbers up to 10. They have fantastic key workers as well. I couldn't wish for a better nursery and lovely ladies to look after my children. Highly recommend. Thank you so much.

My nephews attended this nursery up until they left to go to school and now attend holiday club. The nursery is fantastic. The activities they do are out of this world and they never want to go home when either myself or their parents go to pick up. The staff are longstanding and are full of knowledge and so kind polite and professional. Could not recommend it enough.

Would recommend any parent to go and have a look round the nursery and kids club (holiday club). They offer amazing experiences for children and staff are very friendly you can tell they enjoy working there.

Cherubs provides my 2 girls with home from home care, a relaxed and warm environment. The children are at the heart of everything they do, the manager is creative and innovative, always keen to allow the children to be the catalyst for the focus of activities.
My daughter is in pre school now and started when she was 8 months old, in all that time, I've been very happy to drop her off and leave her under the care of the Cherubs team knowing that she'll have a great day!

Cherubs Kimberley has been fantastic with our boys over the last three years. They take the time to get to know the individual child and work to their capabilities, encouraging and challenging them to maximise their potential. All the staff are friendly and approachable. The setting has been incredibly flexible following the arrival of our third son and he was signed up to attend before he was born. We considered moving them to a nursery closer to our home but having visited several local nurseries we would rather do the 20 mile round trip to Cherubs Kimberley.

I have 2 children in the nursery and both are very happy. Although children have a named key worker all staff in each room seem to be very familiar with all children. They talk to you as parents to find out your concerns and areas that you would like them to work on with your child. My eldest still talks to all the staff he sees and likes them all. Very happy with the care provided and the nursery is very flexible and understanding.

3 of my children have attended this nursery. This nursery is amazing. The staff have changed over the years but the management has stayed the same. The manager is so kind and understanding. They take the time to get to know your child and your child's needs. And help in every way possible. My daughter is currently undergoing speech therapy and they and her key worker are going above and beyond to assist her in the therapy. I wouldn't send my child to any other nursery. Cherubs in Kimberley is a safe and very positive place to provide day to day care for your child.

The team are fantastic. They organised a preschool carol concert which was done really well and the children were great. We really enjoyed watching them and my daughter loved doing it too. Father Christmas and Charlie the Bear also visited them which my daughter was excited about. There was also a food box for families less fortunate which my daughter made sure we took something in each day. I think it's really important to understand that Christmas is also about giving and for us to help our local community. Overall the nursery is great, the staff are lovely and they take genuine care and interest in the children.

The amount and variety of outdoor space (and animals) is wonderful as are all the staff. Learning is fully supported in many different ways for all ages. Parents are supported and listened to. Food is varied and cooked from fresh on the premises. I fully recommend this nursery to other parents, especially those with children that love to play outside.

My son has attended this nursery for over a year and I am very pleased with his progress. He is a naturally shy child, but thanks to the nursery he has grown in confidence and learned to get on well with other children. He is always happy to go to nursery in a morning, and greatly enjoys the range of activities he does there.

My son who is almost 4 and my daughter who is 1 both attend Cherubs Kimberley. We've always been extremely happy with the care they receive. Even when I'm swapping sessions and adding days last minute due to my work, they are always happy to accommodate and the kids always have a great time. Thank you as always.

My son has been attending Cherubs since November 2015 after we swapped from a childminder. It was the best decision we could have made, he has come on leaps and bounds during his time there. The staff are really friendly and helpful and our son is very happy when he is there. Cherubs has some lovely features such as the different animals outside including chickens and rabbits and the lovely beach area and playground outside. I would recommend the nursery to anyone.

My Daughter started attending Cherubs Kimberley 2 years ago when she was 6 months old. This is an excellent nursery. Staff are friendly and bond with the children quickly. Communication is good, we are given a sheet with information about food and activities at the end of each day. Although the building is an old Victorian school the facilities are modern, clean and well maintained. They are always developing and improving areas to make it a stimulating environment for the children. The management are excellent and deal with any questions very promptly.
My Daughter is very happy and looks forward to going to Nursery. Nursery has helped her development. I have recommended the nursery to many friends and family who are all as happy with the nursery as we have been.
An excellent nursery that we feel lucky to have found!

Having been with my daughter for her first 2 years it was quite upsetting for her to be left at nursery for the first time, (and for me!). However, my daughter and the team really have been fabulous and supportive and now we have hardly any tears. My daughter has come on leaps and bound since starting Cherubs and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to other parents.

Our daughter has been going to Cherubs Kimberley for a few months and loves it. The staff helped her settle in brilliantly, and her key worker provides us with useful daily feedback. They are very proactive in furthering her development, and providing her with relevant activities to do so. The meals provided are excellent and provide her with a varied/healthy diet. The outdoor areas are fantastic, and provide the children with great access to explore and play.

My son loved every minute of going to Cherubs Kimberley, it is a lovely nursery and has lots of outside space. The staff are very knowledgeable and care about the children that attend. It definitely helped develop my little boy into the intelligent and confident person he has become.

He will also attend wrap around care next year and his sister will be starting next year too.

Inspirational leadership. The manager's enthusiasm for learning and developing new ideas shows no bounds. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. My son has always looked forward to going to nursery and said he has had a good day. Staff embrace challenges, like the progress to potty training, with confidence and realism which makes me feel secure and happy that my son is in good hands.

Cherubs Kimberley is an amazing nursery. My son has just left to move onto primary school. Cherubs have nurtured all of my sons abilities and helped to give him new abilities. I truly believe he wouldn't be the boy he is today were it not for this nursery - I actually held him back a year for them to continue with the great work they were doing, and that has been the best decision I have made about his life to date. The staff are all lovely and the setting is fantastic -there's a lovely vibe to the place, you can both see and feel the heart that has gone into it by the wonderful manager.
It's big, lots of space, facilities and equipment are good, there are lots of animals and even a beach to play on. On many occasions my son has cried at home time because he wanted to stay longer, which speaks absolute volumes. Highly recommended and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved in my sons pre-school years, we will be forever grateful for everything and we will miss you all a lot.

My little boy has been going to Cherubs since he was 9 months old, and he is now 21 months. From the beginning he settled in very well, and has clearly always been happy at nursery. The staff are all brilliant with him, they have an excellent variety of good, home cooked food, and a great range of play activities. The nursery has been excellent at providing childcare flexibly as I can work on different days from week to week. The manager is very nice, easy to contact and very approachable. They have allowed me to return to work safe in the knowledge that he is well cared for and happy, and I honestly couldn't ask for more.

Provision of homemade food is fantastic. The staff have worked well with my child to settle him in and each room we have found a few members of staff that have alwasy gone that extra step with him. I am more than happy to name people if you find the informtaion useful. Extra activities are talked about often with large smiles. The mini zoo outside is magical especially in the earlier room, a great distration when there wasnt mum or dad. Also amazed at how they are alwasy rejinventing spaces in and outside :)

My child attends cherubs Kimberly 2 full days a week, she loves coming to nursery and is very settled, she always asks to come to nursery and play with friends. Her development and social skills have come on extremely well, staff are excellent at identifying her personal needs and interests, they are all happy and listen to any concerns or worries I may have. I've looked at other nurseries and they all seem poor in comparison. As a first time mum staff have been very helpful and made us feel very welcome.

His favourite thing at the minute seems to be the beach. The nursery offers such a wide range of indoor and outdoor equipment enough to keep my nephew on his toes!! I as an Aunt couldn't be more happier with every staff member at the setting, their hard work is really appreciated within my family :) x

My child was there just over a year. He had three key workers (2 of which were OK) within the first 6 months. My usually outgoing child had become an elective mute. Management did not listen to me and referred my child to speech therapy. This was a waste of an overstretched service's time. My son is now at a new nursery and chattering away.

Sarah Savage, Company Operations Manager at Cherubs Kimberley responded to this review on 08 Mar 2016:

We are extremely disappointed that you were unhappy with the service at the nursery, which is thankfully a rare occurrence. Had the complaints procedure been followed prior to handing in your notice, we could have fully investigated, then addressed any concerns you had and rectified them to your satisfaction, which may have enabled you to continue to use the nursery. We value all feedback and act promptly to address any issues our parents may have.

Cherubs is an excellent nursery. I would highly recommend it to family and friends. My daughter is always excited about going to nursery every morning, which shows how warm and welcoming the staff are there. I always get excellent feedback when I come to pick her up and get to see what she has been up to on their facebook page which is a great idea. I've been using this nursery for the past 7 years as my son also went here and think the staff are fantastic!

I am really pleased with the nursery. I feel my child is well looked after and cared for by all the staff. She is taught new things and things I may not think to teach her or in a different way to how we would at home. The facilities are amazing, my child loves being outdoors which is one reason why I chose this nursery, plus all the animals. The staff are all very friendly and happy to talk about the days activities and answer any concerns. They are also available to email and always reply really quickly. My little one settled in really well and has done as she has moved up to different rooms, this is done gradually which helps. The menu is vast and my child always eats it all!

My daughter has attended Cherubs Day Nursery 3-4 days a week since she was approximately 7 months old. She is now 2 and has thrived during her time here so far. She is a happy, funny, confident and outgoing child and I feel this is largely due to the input and guidance from the staff at Cherubs. Every effort is always made to accommodate any wishes or preferences you have for your child and the environment is home from home. The outdoor facilities are fantastic and the animals are wonderful and loved by all the children. I am due to have twins in April and will be sending them both to Cherubs safe in the knowledge that they will be happy and develop wonderfully within this environment, I have highly recommended Cherubs to other parents and will continue to do so in the future.

My son has come on well in preschool, developing his communication skills. He takes part in the extra sessions (dance and multi-skills) put on by nursery. He's never not wanted to go to nursery in the mornings and has made lots of friends who he socialises with outside of nursery. We usually get weekly targets to fill in with our own comments from home which we like to do because it keeps us involved in his development. The manager is wonderful with the children and shows that she knows every single of of them, providing opportunities for the setting to move forwards. We would be happy to pay for extra visits out if there were more on offer.
