The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 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 4.69 for Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (155 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.69

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge is based on 14 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 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.667

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

We feel the staff are all so great especially our keyworker. Our son settled into the baby room so well and the office staff made the transition so easy for him and us. They are progressing his development and communicate this to us on a daily basis.
If looking for areas of improvement would suggest more thoroughness on the daily email but understand other nurseries don't have this. Overall we are very happy with our choices of Cherubins Day Nursery and feel our son is too. Would recommend without hesitation.

Shermin Arkut, Manager at Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge responded to this review on 13 Oct 2017:

Thank you for your feedback. We continually look to improving our services and your feedback is a very important part of our improvement. ICT has been one the areas we have been looking at improving and now have ipads in all the rooms as well as computers in our older groups.

We find Cherubins a very good nursery. First child started there almost 3 years ago and younger sibling just recently. Although the staff come and go, management is the same and some staff even return (which is a positive sign). They are all very caring and knowledgeable. We feel safe to leave our children in their care and know they are learning and protected. The management has also always been accommodating of our needs. The premises are impressive, the garden area is of good quality, the food is nutritious. We feel part of the nursery as we are involved in every part of the way, from menu designing to days out. Monthly newsletters communications make us feel included and on top of subjects and themes being discussed. From discussing with other groups of parents, we feel lucky to have found such a positive setting.

My daughter has been enrolled at Cherubins Day Nursery for the past two years. The support our family has received is comparable to none. The nursery is extremely accommodating with my schedule and always happy to book my daughter in at the last minute. What we love the most about Cherubins are the friendships we have made with other parents and the wonderful children who attend.

All nursery staff, without exception, gave us a great welcome.
Our key worker has been very patient and friendly with our little one to make him feel safe and happy. Our son has a variety of toys to play with, activities to engage with and other children to observe and play with. The staff are caring and informative and our son really enjoys his time at the nursery.

Really happy with the Nursery and the level of care provided. Very convenient location and staff are helpful and caring. Parents and children made to feel very welcome and we feel that our child not only enjoys attending but gets a lot out of the care and instruction provided.

Staff are very encouraging towards the children's learning. My son started at Cherubins and has now gone on to main school. By the time he left Cherubins Nursery, he was able to write his name, count to 20 and know his ABC. I now have a 2 year old at Cherubins. The standards have not dropped at all. They teach the kids 100%. I'm so happy.

My daughter has been attending Cherubins since she was 5 months old. The experience we have had over the past 9 months has been absolutely fantastic. The key to our positive experience is due primarily to the wonderful staff who we have found to be caring, friendly and informative. There are three regular staff members that look after the babies/infants in my daughters' age group and it's really reassuring having that continuity, especially at the age where the routine can change quite often!

The nursery has a real 'happy' feel to it and we feel it has allowed our daughter to develop in a loving environment. The rooms are colourful and spacious with plenty of activities (sand, toys, books, slide and climbing frame). There is good outside space. You also receive daily emails detailing your child's activities (eg painting, messy play, singing), food, naps and nappies (!)

N.B. My child is still in the youngest age group so I can't comment on the older groups.

The nursery has been where my son has grown up and developed as a young boy from 10 months old. I have always considered the way the staff take care of him and how they ensure his safety at all times. I would recommend this nursery as it is great with space. A large garden for playing and learning and great at reviewing a child's development and seeing where they have achieved their milestones. As a parent, it helps to reassure me that my son has had the best start before school.

Staff are very good and help when I have any problems. Shed for putting your buggy in needs to be bigger and also some form of work that kids can do at home from the nursery would be very good.

Shermin Arkut, Operations Manager at Cherubins Day Nursery - Ladywell Lodge responded to this review on 26 Aug 2016:

Our Menus are revised regularly and run on a 4-week cycle. We follow the National Guidelines for Healthy eating for the under 5's age group. We have recently purchased tablets for all our rooms and 2 PC are based in our After School Club and Pre-school room.

My son attends the after school club and really enjoys going. He comes home talking about what he has done and made and looks forward to returning. He also talks highly about the members of staff and I find them easy to talk to with any issues.
