  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 42 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.918 for Cherubs Longdale (previously Longdale Nursery School) is calculated as follows: ( (917 Excellents x 5) + (74 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 995 Ratings = 4.918

  • 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 Longdale (previously Longdale Nursery School) is based on 42 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 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 42 Reviews ÷ 24 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.

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

I would certainly recommend this nursery. Returning back to work and putting my little boy into the nursery is a big worry of mine but Cherubs have reassured me. My Son has settled and is looked after better than I initially expected. Over the moon!

We have been very satisfied with the care provided during the transition of our child into the nursery. Our Son has shown a marked improvement since he started and we believe this has been directly a result of his time at Cherubs.

I cannot thank them enough!

My daughter has been attending Cherubs Longdale since she was 1 year old and has progressed through to preschool. She settled into each room easily and often tells us she 'likes school' and 'I've had a good day'. She is happy there and learns new skills and is making friends.
She enjoys the food and the extra activities, especially those using the lovely outdoor space at the setting. I would highly recommend to anyone.

My 2 children are always happy to go to nursery and seem very settled. The staff are friendly and supportive. Staff are always keen to give welcoming cuddles in the morning! The rooms are spacious and clean with lots of toys,m activities and displays. The Blossoms App is helpful as it is nice to see photos of what the children have been up to! Management are also helpful, approachable and can be flexible regarding adding extra days etc. The nursery offers 30 free hours without restricting when these can be used which is also a bonus!

Brilliant, the staff are great. My lad always loves finding that he is in the nursery for the day; I think he prefers it to home. From his first day at a few months old to now at 21 months, he's always loved it. His social development is great and I'm sure it's because of the work there.

Our 7-month-old baby has just started at Cherubs Longdale. She has settled in far better than we could ever have hoped. This is due to the welcoming and supportive staff. They have taken the time to get to know us as parents, as well as our baby. They are always positive, happy and pass information back to us well at the end of the day. The home/school diary is used well, and our comments e.g. That she has started clapping today, have been read and used to personalise the learning e.g. Singing 'if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands'.
The inside and outside learning spaces are both excellent. Our baby seems to love the food and has been settled enough to nap and eat straight away.

My daughter attends Longdale once a week and started when she was 4 months old. I was very nervous about her being in someone else's care as she had been in and out of hospital for various things and would need at times an extra eye kept on her. I couldn't have asked for better introduction visits for her, the girls were incredibly understanding and willing to learn her little ways of what to look out for if she became unwell. I was put at ease so quickly that they wouldn't hesitate to call me if needed. She settled in so quickly and adapted to the nursery routine. She is always happy when I drop her off and definitely knows the girl's faces and enjoys spending time and playing with them especially getting very messy always! When I collect her from Daisy's she always has a beaming smile on her face and is happy to come for a cuddle then go and play whilst I am updated on what she has been up to all day. Thank you so much for caring for my girl so perfectly. She loves you all lots.

Than you for your lovely feedback. I will pass it on to the manager and her team. We hope your little one continues to flourish at Longdale.

My daughter absolutely loves preschool. She's always singing new songs, telling me about the wonderful time she's had, playing, making, running, singing and dancing.
I am confident in leaving her in the staff's competent care. They are all so friendly and helpful.
The food is clearly delicious too, as she's always had 2 servings!

My son has been very happy at Cherubs Longdale. He has made lots of friends and is always excited to report what he has done for the day.
He often brings home art work and has joined French lessons and mini kick, he enjoys both greatly.
There are often trips out and new activities, such as the fire pit.
The staff are caring and my son has grown very fond of them.

Longdale is a fantastic nursery, my daughter has enjoyed every room, right from the babies room up to pre school and looks forward to going to nursery. All the staff are fantastic and you know your child is being looked after very well. The outdoor area is a real hit with my daughter as she loves to play outdoors and enjoys the sensory garden too. Always recommend the nursery to others, as I feel it has really brought my child on in many ways.

My daughter has had an amazing year at Longdale Nursery. The staff have been wonderfully nurturing and it is obvious that they truly care for the children and know them so well. My daughter has been given so many valuable experiences in the form of trips, visitors in school and general day-to-day outstanding practice. I am thoroughly saddened that she has to leave but know that she does so with a great start to her learning journey and it's all down to the amazing staff! Thank you!

Our child loves nursery, particularly playing outside - the outside space is excellent. Inside there are lots of things to do and play with and many activities arranged including themed. Staff are clearly caring and friendly and take an interest in children. A full update is given at each pickup and staff always happy to answer questions and talk to parents. Security is good and the place is clean, safe and looked after. Would recommend to anyone.

I could not recommend this nursery highly enough. The staff are all fantastic, so friendly and genuinely care about my child and know her individual personality. The activities at the setting are wide ranging, including additional sessions offered e.g. Mini kicks and encourage development. The outside space is great and I love that my child gets fresh air and exercise whenever possible. The nursery manager is fantastic - she knows all the children and parents, is very approachable and the communication is great, particularly through the Facebook page. There is a good variety of food offered and my child always eats very well at nursery. My daughter is extremely happy here - thank you for looking after her so well.

After viewing two nurseries previously - and still feeling unsure, I went to visit Longdale for my son. I immediately loved the location and felt a sense of homeliness as I entered. Staff were very friendly, approachable and professional. The nursery was large, with a vast outdoor area, clean, and staff appeared organised and knowledgeable. After having all the information and being shown around - I felt like I had finally found a nursery that was suitable and made me feel at ease with the thought of leaving my boy in their care. Plus on the way out, they even offered to change his nappy as he had filled it. Overall felt above and beyond expectation. My son loves it and at 14 months old, already is making progress in learning.

My son attended Longdale for a period before we moved. I was impressed instantly and found that my son settled in well with the excellent staff members in the Buttercups Room (15 -24 months). The staff were always considerate of my child's mood in the morning and I felt reassured that my son was in capable hands. The outdoor area is fantastic and allows my son full access to the outdoor space. I was sorry to leave the setting. I would definitely recommend Cherubs Longdale Nursery School.

I had heard amazing things about this nursery so when we were looking for childcare we knew we wanted to try Longdale Cherubs first.
We were greeted by the manager and taken around the nursery, all of the staff were very friendly and the children all seemed very settled and happy and were all engaged in different activities. We were impressed with the outside activities and different activities in each room.
We met the baby room staff and had half an hour talking about our baby and what a average day at nursery would be like. On our next visit, we went to the baby room and our baby girl spent time with the staff whilst we went for a coffee. I was anxious as any parent would be but when we arrived back our baby was so happy and settled, she had drank her milk and had a sleep too. I feel very confident that she will be very settled here. We have already recommended the nursery to our friends and we're very happy we followed our hearts and have definitely chosen the right nursery for us.

I cannot praise this nursery enough.
The staff have been incredible!
My little boy has a number of allergies and my husband and I cannot believe how accommodating and professional they have been in dealing with these. They have gone above and beyond with his food at nursery to ensure he doesn't miss out and has a varied diet alongside his peers.
Communication from the nursery is excellent and the parents Facebook page is fantastic. I sometimes wonder if some of the staff ever stop working as they can be uploading photos and replying to comments well beyond working hours which again only shows their commitment and passion for the job which as a parent is so reassuring to see.
I would highly recommend this nursery and really hope the manager and staff get the recognition for all their hard work which they thoroughly deserve. We are so thankful to them for making our families experience of starting nursery such a positive one. Thank you.

Cherubs Longdale has nurtured my son since he was 9 months old. The care and provision offered are second to none! He comes home happy, talking about what he has been doing that day.

My son is now 8 years and has been going to Cherubs (Longdale) since the age of 1.
As a baby, Longdale helped my son develop in leaps and bounds. With many learning activities and well experienced staff every day I collected a very happy child and always had lots to tell me as soon as we were in the car... non stop talking all the way home about the fun things he had done that day.
Now he is at the holiday club and loves it just as much! Especially all the trips and fun games.

Cherubs (Longdale) are a high standard childcare with excellent security and experienced friendly staff. The offer a wide range of activities for any kind of child.

I would highly recommend you take your child here as you will feel your child is very safe and well looked after, giving you a parent the confidence to go to work and enjoy your day with a little rest along the way.

My two boys have been going here for 10 months and both have absolutely loved every minute. The facilities are fantastic but the staff are outstanding. My son was rushed to the hospital today and every single member of staff did everything they possibly could to help at a very frightening time for me. What an incredible team!!

I visited A LOT of nurseries when trying to decide where to take my daughter (then 9 mths) and when I visited Cherubs Longdale at the beginning of the year I just had a good feeling that I didn't get from any other nursery - the staff seemed lovely and were willing to answer all my crazy questions, the nursery was spacious and clean and the outdoor area was great. My daughter has now been at Longdale for 6 months and I can honestly say that I haven't regretted my decision for one second and they have far exceeded my expectations. The staff are amazing - there aren't enough characters allowed in this review for me to put into words how great they are! The standard of care is faultless and I always know my daughter is well fed with a balanced diet and the most important thing - she's happy! Not once has she cried when I've dropped her off and she's always happy (but tired!) when I pick her up.

I've already recommended this nursery to anyone who will listen - and will continue to do so!

Everyone at Longdale is so friendly and so interactive with the children. My 2 year old is excited every time he goes to nursery and always comes home with a smile on his face. If you want your child to have a great start in life then Longdale is the place to go! It's the little extras too- like the trips out and making cards for father's day and the animals in the fields next door that make a difference. There's so much for the children to get involved in and the flexible pay structure suits us ideally and is not overly expensive.

My lg attends snowdrops. We chose Longdale after visiting many private nurseries. On looking around they had the best balance between what felt like a genuine interest in my lg and establishing a relationship with her and a willingness to work closely with us to keep her routines as close to at home as possible. Both were key areas for us. 5 months later our lg still goes in a bit quiet but is always jumping up and down and v.happy when we collect her. They have worked hard to ensure her routine is followed which helps her feel settled. We are quite particular about the food she eats as we avoid processed foods and sugar etc. They have always adapted the menu accordingly and never forgotten/given her something we wouldn't at home. All the staff in the room are great, however must mention the senior in the room is particularly great. She is the key adult my lg talks about at home, great attention for detail for the little things that matter to us and I can always tell if she hasn't been in for some reason.

My family have been cared for by everyone at Longdale nursery since my son, aged one, started in the Buttercup room, in the summer of 2011. After being initially unsure about what childcare would be best for him, I have never since doubted my decision to send him and then my daughter to Longdale. They have provided outstanding care for both my children. I have watched as both children have flourished in their care. They've learnt and developed so much during their time, but what I like about Longdale the most, is that all the staff have loved and cared for them in the way I do. When I'm at work I never worry about whether my children are going to be ok, I know they are. We will continue to see our Longdale friends in school holidays at the holiday club. I cannot recommend this nursery enough for the care of little ones and thank each staff member for all they do for my children.

I would highly recommend Longdale Nursery. My little girl loves going and enjoys her time there (so much so she never wants to leave when I come to pick her up!). The staff are warm, friendly and the kids all seem very happy.
Their outside area is exceptional and my daughter really enjoys playing outside. There are a wide range of activities for them, both inside and out so they are never bored.

My son used to attend this nursery on a regular basis. Although he is at school full time on the odd occasion I have needed last minute childcare for him after he finishes school in the morning. The setting has always catered for my needs and allowed me to bring him in last minute. The staff are brilliant and always happy to help. The management team are friendly and also always happy to help if we have any queries. I would Definitely recommend this setting to people.

Longdale have been part of our family for 8 years so it's an emotional time for us now that my youngest will be starting school in September. Both my girls have loved going to Longdale, they've always found a key worker to love in each room, love the outdoor space, the extra activities during term ie French and also holiday clubs. I am always proud to tell people that my girls have been at Longdale. We've got lots of happy memories. Thank you so much Longdale for loving our girls as much as we do xxx

Practitioners at Longdale Lane nursery have been fantastic at helping my little boy to settle in to nursery. They are loving and caring as well as being professional. The manager is as equally caring as the key workers; taking time to call and email me to reassure me that my son is happy and settled. Thank you to all staff that have been involved in my son's first month at nursery.

Longdale provide a safe environment for my child. They are always polite and friendly and my child enjoys attending. They have lots of different activities set up each day to encourage learning through play, however it would be nice to see more teaching based activities now my child is older. Longdale provide lots of outdoor based activities which are fantastic, they also do trips out which is lovely. I think policies/procedures have improved greatly over the years and they are always willing to listen to any issues/improvements from parents.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Longdale over the past six years, who have looked after both of my children from being babies to 3 years of age, when they've had to leave to move on to school nursery. We've been lucky to have got to know many of the team members over the years, they always provide excellent care and attention to the children and the reassurance this gives to a parent is paramount. It's going to be very strange not dropping a child off at Longdale on my way to work (there won't be any more!), we're going to miss you all.

Thank you.

There is no online app where I can see what my child was doing. I know you have Facebook page but I don't have account there so don't know what is happening on that page. When I normally pick my child up there is nothing mentioned, what activities she did apart from eating. In e-bills, no dates been mentioned- which days she normally attends apart from basic payment. No updated dairy dates or other info is sent by email.
