Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Cherubs Vale View 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 70 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherubs Vale View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 29 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 4.778 for Cherubs Vale View is calculated as follows: ( (666 Excellents x 5) + (149 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 833 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 Vale View is based on 29 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 16.4 positive Reviews (82 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 29 Reviews ÷ 16.4 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.

9.8 Cherubs Vale View has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.778)

Staff are brilliant. My Son is achieving skills whilst being at the nursery. He's very shy and takes some persuading but the staff make sure he is comfortable and happy providing lots of cuddles. Thank you Cherubs.

Since my child started Cherubs I have seen an amazing difference in her behaviour and development. I wasn't able to leave my child without her becoming upset but that has now changed and I'm able to leave her happily at nursery and get around at home too.

My eldest uses the after school service and my youngest attends pre-school. I have always been impressed by the level of care and attention that my children get from the staff, and both my girls are excited to go every day. I would highly recommend, both the after school service and the nursery.

Cherubs Vale View is fantastic all round. My daughter has only been coming a couple of months and already she has come on leaps and bounds. Her eating is better, her language is better and she can go longer periods without her dummy. The staff are amazing, friendly and welcoming.

After having a bad experience of a nursery before Cherubs, from the first day that my son came to this nursery everything and all the staff have been above amazing. As my son had speech problems before coming to Cherubs, everyone has helped and supported him and he is always happy to come. His development has been fantastic and this is due to the support and attention he has got since arriving.

I can take my daughter and leave confidently knowing each member of staff are doing a great job, all very caring and have the children's best interests at heart.

Great Nursery and very friendly members of staff, my son was happy here from when he started in 2015. Cherubs Vale View has built confidence throughout his time here and he has achieved a good standard of social skills and learning, he has made a lot of friends and became very popular. My son has had the support he needed to make him a confident friendly boy.
The staff are well trained and are a friendly bunch, which my son has enjoyed knowing.
Would recommend this nursery.

Amazing after school club. Both of my two boys thoroughly enjoy their time here and have a fantastic bond with all the staff who always go the extra mile to ensure they are getting the best care, enjoyment and education they can. My boys have been coming to this setting since they were both 6 months old in nursery to kids club! I would highly recommend this nursery/after school club.

I would always recommend this outstanding nursery to anybody looking for childcare.
Cherubs Vale View have not only looked after my little brother for the past 6 years but also cared for him. He truely enjoys his time at Cherubs and often asks to go at the weekend! Not only do Cherubs deliver such a professional service, they have also been a humongous support to my little brother though a much difficult time. I can't fault the staff for always delivering such outstanding service!

Every member of staff is extremely friendly and helpful which reflects in the children they care for. There is never a dull moment always an activity of some sort going off. My son eats things at nursery he refuses at home which is great and encourages him to try new things. Overall a great place.

Staff are amazing at Cherubs Vale View and we been consistently impressed by the quality of care provided. All of the staff are professional, caring and hard working. Our kids have thrived since joining Cherubs Vale View. We genuinely feel that the staff have always dealt with our kids in an excellent manner and treated them very much as an individual. We don't know how we would have coped if it wasn't for the help, the excellent care the kids receive.

I can't speak more highly of the whole team at Cherubs. I've used both a nursery and a childminder and I came back to Cherubs. They are great, very supportive, understanding and the team are friendly and fun! The kids enjoy coming and I have total piece of mind when I leave the kids in their care. Thanks for being so great!

My 6-year-old son attends the after-school club and school holiday club at Cherubs Vale View - Step Ahead Kids Club. He likes going to Cherubs. Staff at Cherubs are very caring, supportive, and helpful. My son adores the staff at Cherubs.

Cherubs Vale View is an excellent nursery; it has great communication and updates. It is a lovely place to bring my son and have the peace of mind to know he is safe and happy. The staff are exceptional and they go the extra mile to make sure my son is happy. My son loved all the activities and day trips over the summer holidays. He looks forward to the after-school club, after finishing school. He will be at Cherubs for the October half-term holidays.

I take this opportunity to thank all the staff for all their support and help. It is a great kids club for children and I wholeheartedly recommended it to a few parents.

My son has been coming here for a year and half. When he first started he couldn't talk and now he has come on leaps and bounds. His key worker is a big help and my son is so happy with her. I am very happy with my son's progress and would highly recommend this nursery.

I am very happy with Cherubs nursery and the staff. My child loves the nursery and settled in very well. She had learnt a lot and gained a lot, especially with other children. She has come a long way and I am very pleased with her and the staff. All staff are friendly and trustworthy and have a good relationship with her.

I feel this is the best nursery for my child, as I get feedback about my child's behaviour and about the things he's been doing throughout the day. I feel he's well looked after and well fed, always clean and full of beans. He has also learnt a lot with his speech and communication with others.

My four year old daughter started coming to nursery at the end of September 2015, as she is extremely clingy and does not like being away from me. I knew it would be a nightmare. The staff are absolutely BRILLIANT. I was not pushed into leaving her sobbing and heartbroken and they worked at her pace until she was happy and comfortable. They allowed me to stay with her for as long as needed, they called if she was upset after I had sneaked off (while she was pre-occupied ) so I could come bad collect her. My daughter now looks forward to going to nursery. I could not recommend this nursery enough. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!

Good =
- Approachable and friendly staff.
- Flexible and accommodating with days.
- My child's independent feeding has vastly improved since they started nursery.
- Open to alternative parenting requests.
- Big outdoor space and good range of activities.

Needs improving =
- Far too many unhealthy puddings on offer at meal times and quite basic food on menu.
- Nursery needs to provide the foundation of good eating to prevent child obesity development.
