The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Creative Explorers Day 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Creative Explorers Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.595 for Creative Explorers Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.595

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Creative Explorers Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500

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

Reviewer Connection to Creative Explorers Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    7

My son went to Creative Explorers from 11 months (when I went back to work) until 20 months (when we left London), and we were really happy with our experience, and he was very happy and settled there too (first experience with childcare so we were a bit anxious!). He was in the baby room, where the 2 main staff/his key worker were the same the whole time he was there. We felt that as well as being looked after, doing activities, etc, all the things that you'd expect at a nursery, that he was actually cared for, and that they understood him and knew him. Every day they would take the time to explain how he'd been, what he'd done etc. The nursery is really well run and well managed, you can see there are systems in place, it's very clean, food cooked on site with lots of fruit and veg... Again, really great experience, there is a very caring, cosy and friendly atmosphere there.

My daughter loves it there, she's been going since she was 9 months old and is now two. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, on collection we get a daily update of everything that's been going on. It's amazing all the new things she learns on a daily basis. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough!

My son has been attending Creative Explorers Day Nursery since April this year. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always give feedback on how he has been during the day.
He eats very well and has a wide variety of healthy food for his snacks and meals.
There are lots of things for him to do and play with and lots of activities always taking place.
He has made lots of new friends and really enjoys attending.

We entrusted our six-month-old son to Creative Explorers several months ago. As first-time parents, we were very nervous about leaving him but to our amazement he settled in almost instantly, and since then his development has come on in leaps and bounds.
The manager and her team have created such a warm and happy atmosphere in their nursery that the smiles seem infectious. We are moving out of the area, and are very sad that our lad will have to say goodbye to all his friends and the wonderful staff, but it has given us real peace of mind to know that our boy was in such loving and capable hands. We highly recommend Creative Explorers.

I cannot recommend Creative Explorers more, our child started at 11 months old and they did everything to reassure him and us of his well being. He was taken care of so well and developed so well, he definitely learned a lot. We felt like he really be benefited from his time there. The communication between the staff and us was excellent and we knew he was in safe hands. The only reason our time with the nursery ended was our decision to leave the UK. We would be lucky to find another nursery as good.

Our little girl has been attending creative explorers for 7 months now. We are first time parents and this is our first experience with a nursery. From the start the team have been excellent. Communication has been clear and the care for our daughter has been excellent. This is evident in the fact that she is always happy when we collect her and drop her off, she has rarely been ill since starting (we were expecting her to pick up every bug going but have been lucky so far) and her development has come on in leaps and bounds. Her settling in was structured and it really didn't take long before she was waving me goodbye! The staff show a real love for the children and it has certainly made my experience as a first time mum so much easier. The location is also excellent for commuting to the city! We are sad that we are moving out of the area and have had to find a new nursery closer to our new home! But would recommend Creative Explorers highly.
