Reviews

9 Clapham Village Nursery has a Review Score of 9 (8.974)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Clapham Village Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Clapham Village Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 9 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 4.602 for Clapham Village Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.602

  • 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 4.372 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Clapham Village Nursery is based on 9 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 24.2 positive Reviews (121 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 24.2 Target = 0.372

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

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the housekeeper at Clapham Village Nursery. He is fantastic with all the parents and children and is incredibly polite and professional. He keeps all the nursery rooms clean and tidy and works very hard. The housekeeper is an asset to the nursery and I hope he is praised for the fantastic job he is doing above and beyond his job role. Thank you, all the parents really appreciate your service.

I chose this nursery based on the high quality of the facilities and friendliness of the staff, the location is also very convenient.
My daughter settled in quickly in the Rising 3s room. The staff are very warm and great with the kids. Her key worker, in particular, is very caring and I'm happy to leave my child with her.
My daughter loves the bilingual beats singing and the sand kitchen outside. She's always happy when I pick her up.
I like that I get a rundown of how much she has eaten and slept during the day.
The flexibility of this nursery is helpful and now there's a loyalty scheme with free sessions.
I'm impressed they are visiting primary schools in the area so the children are being prepared.
Overall, I'm very happy to recommend this nursery.

My son went to a previous nursery and he didn't enjoy it. I originally picked Clapham Village Nursery before it was open in 2014 and I'm glad I did! They look after him very well, and he has settled in great. He is more social and implements what he has learnt there at home. The staff are attentive and gives me feedback on his progress. Only negative I would say is the need for more staff in the rooms. Overall the facilities are great, lots of different activities and toys to keep the kids active. When I collect my son he's still content and shows he has had fun. I'm just happy that he is also happy there and I am glad I went back to my first choice.

The opening hours and convenient location were the primary drivers for us to select this nursery for our child to attend when I returned to work after 12 months mat leave. Upon visiting, the facilities and space provided convinced us. All the toys look well kept and the nursery rooms are well organised with lots of activities. The staff are very caring and attentive.

Marketa Cardon, Marketing at Clapham Village Nursery responded to this review on 05 Apr 2017:

Thank you very much for your review. Your feedback is very important in helping us to continue to provide high-quality care and education to you and your family. We noticed that you didn’t score us 100% in all areas and we would be grateful to know how we can reach it. I have asked the Nursery Manager to speak to you and to find out how we can exceed your expectations. You can also contact us by email at ukfeedback@brighthorizons.com.

My daughter has been going to this nursery for over a year. The staff and management are very friendly and easy to approach. The teaching techniques are absolutely amazing. The staff are very dedicated and hardworking. In addition, they keep parents updated as to what or how they are working on improving the child's skill etc

I strongly believe if the nursery get more staff it will add to their strength. Overall I am very happy with my daughter's progress.

My children have been attending Clapham Village Nursery for a year now and they love being there. The staff are warm and friendly and it feels very family oriented. The staff regularly give updates on activities at the nursery, as well as sending out tips for learning and progression at home. My children have greatly increased their language, knowledge and creativity skills through a variety of songs, tactile learning, arts and crafts and learning other languages.
The outdoor facilities are great considering it is in London and the creation station, dance studio and cooking areas are great quality.
Staff are very good at communicating development and development needs of the children to the parents.
The meals cooked on site are good quality and cover an array of food choices.

My review is based upon my experience of my son joining the nursery and starting in the Younger Babies room at 12 months old. From day one, the staff were incredibly warm, welcoming and caring. The settling in process was well planned with careful consideration given to how both my son and us as his parents would feel leaving him for the first time.

At drop offs and pick ups, I feel confident and able to speak to any of the staff about my son as it is evident they are looking out for all of the children in the room. The nursery is very well equipped with everything the children need to enjoy their day and for the staff to do their job. The children's days are filled with fun activities and healthy meals. I would highly recommend this nursery based on the care my son has received in a clean, bright and healthy environment.
