The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Serendipitys Day Nursery Cotgrave is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 48 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Serendipitys Day Nursery Cotgrave in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.922 for Serendipitys Day Nursery Cotgrave is calculated as follows: ( (531 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 576 Ratings = 4.922

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Serendipitys Day Nursery Cotgrave is based on 6 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.556

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We had moved several times, which meant my daughter had an unsettled feeling. When we moved to our new home it was important for her to know that we weren't going to be moving again. She was nervous about me leaving her, as the past 7 months was very difficult for her. I explained our situation to the staff and they were amazing at making her feel comfortable there, and they allowed us to take our time with transitioning. They understood how to look after her and she soon formed strong attachments to the staff. She is so happy there and now has friends that she can form proper relationships with.

My son has been there since January 2016. Serendipitys Day Nursery is just fantastic. My son loves it!!! Staff working there are amazing, very friendly and polite. They are doing just a fantastic job. The food is also very good. My son eats almost everything there but he is such a fussy eater at home. They have lots of activities, indoor and outdoor. I am very happy that my son is going there. He gets so much fun! I would recommend Serendipitys Day Nursery to all of my friends and family. Five stars!!! Thank you very much.

Our little boy has struggled to settle in as he has never been left before so it's a massive change for him, it is still a working progress however we never once feel uneasy about leaving him. The staff are amazing they always reassure me and my partner. The nursery on a whole is lovely lots for the children to do, so much to explore. Every single member of staff know our sons name and always interact with him even if they aren't working closely with him. We as first time parents are extremely happy with everything on offer and would highly recommended Serendipitys.

Our son joined the nursery when he was 1 and a half and is now based in Pre School. He absolutely loves going to nursery, he's got loads of friends and always comes home talking about all the fun he's had and what he's been doing.

I can honestly say that all the staff are brilliant - friendly, welcoming, always cheerful and excited to greet you. One lady in particular (Toddler room) is amazing; so enthusiastic and genuinely seems to love each child as if they are her own.

The outdoor space in particular is fantastic and was one of the main reasons we chose this nursery (we actually live in Bingham).

We can thoroughly recommend Serendipitys and will be signing our second son up next year!

My daughter has been with the nursery for 2 years and wow how she has come on and developed, the nursery is far better than of the previous one and that was of a high standard, but they beat that and more, the surrounding is well planned out as is the daily activities and the staff are friendly and approachable, you feel confident and safe leaving your child with them, the nursery has been really good with the help in cross over to school and the half days at F1, they have always helped us out if we have been in a pickle with care due to work, the price of care is good too, the only down side I've had is I wished they had opened up as early as the previous nursery.

It is sad to see her leaving here for school.

This is simply an amazing nursery, my children both attended and felt loved and cared for. Staff are brilliant and have helped both of my children to be ready for school. I loved that they are able to pick up and drop off at Candleby lane's F1 class as this has made life so much easier as a working mum. Facilities are brilliant and I have seen them develop over time to which my oldest comments on things that weren't there when she was!!

We have used this nursery for the last seven years. All three of my children have attended and one of them is still there now. The staff are all extremely friendly, all of my kids built very good bonds with staff members and other children there. I would describe the nursery as a very welcoming place where children can interact and have fun with other kids, well being looked after in a safe learning environment.

We are so sad that our son is coming into his final weeks at Serendipitys. Having been under the care of this excellent team 5 days a week 8am-6pm since March 2015 to Jul 16. We could not have asked for one more ounce of love, caring and compassion from the whole Serendipitys team. Every member of staff knows every single child's name, and treats each one with complete respect for their unique character. It would be easy to mention every member of the team as being very special but in particular some whom will always have a special place in my son's heart. I can not recommend this facility enough for high levels of learning, support and care. Each member of the team goes over and above to ensure excellence. n.b. the food is always excellent, nutritious and varied.

Since my daughter started at this nursery she has improved massively as has the standard of care being given. I think this is down to the change of manager, she is approachable and has a great relationship with the staff and children. As a parent you want your child to have friends and continually develop my daughter is stimulated and loves going to nursery what more could you want.

My Daughters and I both agree Serendipity's Nursery is fantastic.
The nursery team, the facilities and the overall atmosphere are wonderful.
My daughter wakes in a morning and asks "where am I going today daddy" when I say "to Nursery" she responds with a cheeky smile and a yippee, what more could a dad want, whilst I am at work knowing my daughter is having a wonderful time, with a fantastic team taking care of her.

Both my daughters attended Serendipity's and one daughter still does.
The facilities are outstanding the 3 separate outdoor areas allowing the children's imagination to run free & be creative.
The fresh cooked food menu is wonderful.
The most important element of the nursery are the fantastic nursery team, they are so supportive. I am continually updated on my daughters progress, targets and achievements, we are constantly involved in the recent topics they are learning about and so as a parent we are able to carry on the learning at home and create activities based around these. Each member of staff knows my daughter, her likes, dislikes and makes each day as special as the last.
My daughter skips into nursery each day and is smiling and laughing when I arrive to collect her, on the way home she doesn't stop talking about her fun filled, stimulating and educational day, this to me is any mothers desire that her child is happy and safe and I know children attending Serendipity's truly are.

I pick my grandson up once or twice a week, the welcome I get from the staff is a great feeling. He loves going and does not always want to come home, he loves playing outside and doing jigsaws. I have also been on a trip to the panto with them, and was made very welcome by all the staff.
He had a few issues when he started as his parents had split up, but through the patience and work the staff have made him into a happy and very loving little boy. Will be sorry to see him leave to go to school.

My daughter has been there for only 4 weeks but has settled in really well, showing huge signs of growing up and becoming a lot more vocal and confident about herself. I believe it is down to the staff nominated to each child who show particular interest in getting to know their child to the best of there experience. I would totally 110% recommend this nursery and will be telling all friends and family how wonderful, helpful and caring the staff are towards my daughter.

My son really enjoys his time in Serendipitys. The staff are friendly, the activities and opportunities for the children are excellent, as is the learning. There is very good communication between the staff and the parents and lots of parental involvement in activities with the children.

Since taking my son to the nursery, as a parents we've been involved in our child's progress throughout his time here and have watched his interaction skills flourish. Were both very happy with the service provided and would certainly recommend to anyone!. The staff have been very friendly and helpful.

In the time my daughter has attended nursery she has blossomed in to a happy confident little girl the staff at Serendipitys can take huge credit for this. As a parent looking in from the outside I've been impressed with the level of care and attention given to her from day one, and she would tell us if it was otherwise. keep up the good work.

My granddaughter is very happy to attend nursery. She is stimulated, engages in activities and usually very happy to come in the morning. She chatters about things she's done, friends she has played with and obviously enjoys being involved in a good range of activities. She is able to share the song of the week, and enjoys reading stories etc as early literacy activities.

I think that she is happy and well motivated, she enjoys the socialisation and education that is provided by the staff.

A very professional nursery, staff are friendly, granddaughter has been in the nursery since 9 months and the education she has received from the staff is second to none, the way the children are in their own peer groups means they have friends of there own age, I would and have recommended this nursery to friend from my own place of work who are looking for child places.

Both my boys have come to this nursery since 2011-I cannot express enough how impressed we both are with the nursery. I have always felt completely confident and relaxed in leaving both boys here. Our first boy was born very prematurely and as a result had a few issues-even at this worrying time, the nursery were brilliant at reassuring us and again we felt completely relaxed about leaving him. Over the years I have also found the nursery a fantastic resource of information about childcare issues.

Serendipitys is the best nursery that I could put my little boy into, he has additional needs and the nursery meets these above and beyond.
He has a special diet and all of his guidelines are on the wall in the kitchen to make all aware.
He has an emergency box in case a situation occurs, everyone knows about his condition and are well aware of what to do in an emergency.

I could not think of a more safe place to put my child. The staff and nursery are amazing.
If you want your child to feel safe and well looked after then this is the nursery to take your child.

Serendipitys is a fantastic nursery, they care for the children very well and cater to all their needs. My child loves all the activities and I love the finished products that are sent home. The food is fantastic and I love that the children can help to make the cakes for dessert.

My little girl has been going to the nursery for over 1 year now. She loves it. She started in the baby room where they helped her develop. The transition to the toddler room was well planned and coordinated. They follow the guidelines and have regular meetings with the parents to discuss progress and determine what areas of development to focus on next. We are raising our daughter tri-lingual with English only being spoken at nursery and we can see how much she learns there. They are also very keen to incorporate any celebrations we have at home.

Serendipitys is a fantastic nursery, my little boy is so happy there and has been since he started. He is always happy to go to nursery and usually reluctant to leave because he's having so much fun. All the staff are so friendly and caring towards all the children. It's not just a job to them, they genuinely care. He has made some great friends and is really developing his personality because of the nurturing environment they have created at Serendipitys Cotgrave. I will be genuinely sad when he leaves next year for primary school.

Such an amazing welcoming nursery. My child loves it so much and as came on leaps and bounds since starting. The staff are so friendly and you can see they genuinely care and love the child. I am protective mother and would not leave my son anywhere I did not know he was being fully cared for. I have no worries or concerns at all about this nursery only good things to say.

Seredipity Day Nursery in Cotgrave is outstanding!!! My son is 2 1/2 and he goes there 4 days a week. He looks forward to going to nursery every day because there are always lots of different activities taking place, he has lots of friends there and the atmosphere inside is lovely. We couldn't ask for a better nursery.

We initially chose the nursery because it was very important to myself and my wife that our son had a large outside space to play in, Seredipity's has a huge playing field with a mud kitchen, camping area, sand pit, etc etc etc... Inside is also ideal as well though, it is clean, well-thought out and there is SO MUCH going on every day to keep the kids interested, entertained and stimulated. Kids of different ages do mix but they also have their own segregated areas where they spend most of the day with kids of their own age, this is something else that I think is important but wasn't the case at some other nurserys we've seen.

Final word must go to the staff, they are genuinely fantastic. They are what really make Serendipity's the lovely place it is for my son. Every day when he arrives, their faces light up to see him, it is a pleasure to drop him off in the morning. They understand what he needs, help him learn and encourage him, as well as being unbelievably patient. It amazes me everyday how just a couple of staff can keep a room full of todlers engaged and well behaved.......I struggle with just one! Thank you.

Our daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 9 months old. I loved the nursery from our first visit. It filled me with encouragement that no appointment was needed and I could just drop in to view the facilities. Our daughter was settled into the baby room and I felt confident that she was being cared for and that I was able to call at anytime to see how her day was going . At age two she has moved to toddlers. She is genuinely excited to attend nursery on her 2 days a week. Not only has she made lots of friends she has progressed in leaps and bounds. I love the encouragement the children are given to use imagination and display their creative side. Regular parents evenings allow nursery and us to work side by side on the next development areas. It feels like a true partnership. As my daughter is heading towards 3 she has spent time in the pre school room and comes home with nothing but praise of how much she has enjoyed her day. All of this with nutritious meals and friendly approachable staff make it a great place for my daughter. I would not hesitate to recommend and I often do!!
