Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.65 for The Conservatoire Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (249 Excellents x 5) + (115 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 371 Ratings = 4.65

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 The Conservatoire Nursery is based on 31 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 31 Reviews ÷ 9.8 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.

9.7 The Conservatoire Nursery has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.650) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.7 out of 5 from 31 Reviews over all time

The Conservatoire Nursery is a great environment for children. The staff really care about them and go the extra mile to offer feedback at the end of a busy day.

My 2-year old has been at the nursery for a year and a half and has made some great friends and good progress with his speech and development

The variety of activities and excellent outdoor space ensure there is always lots to do, and there is also a very nutritional menu on offer.

I would definitely recommend the nursery to others.

Our son loves going to the nursery. He is having a really good time there and learning some essential skills along the way. He loves the sports hour on Mondays and spending time in the garden. He's bonded very well with his key worker and has really developed his social skills there.

The Conservatoire is just a lovely nursery. Like all first time mums, I was very anxious about leaving my son alone for the first time, but I needn't have been. It is reassuring to know that he is in such a warm and caring environment. I did lots of research about nurseries in Blackheath and there are many good ones, but for us, The Conservatoire ticked all of our boxes. We especially like the location (very convenient area but safe off the main road), outdoor space, food (!), creativity & activities, parental support & inclusion, and the staff. We receive good updates daily on collection; I feel the staff know my son very well and are open, honest and trustworthy. I really appreciate the weekly emails, the enthusiasm for the nursery and children's development, and as a parent, I feel well informed about what is happening at the nursery. Most of all my son loves it here. Choosing a nursery is not an easy task, but I can hand on heart say this is a great nursery & I am so glad we chose it!

The Consevetoire Nursery has been great for our daughter since she was 11 months old.
Being slightly smaller than other nurseries in the area we felt it the best place for our daughter to be given more focused care, and the Conservatoire Nursery has definitely met those expectations.
She is now nearly three and we remain very happy with the care provided at the Conservatoire Nursery.

My son joined the Conservatoire Nursery at 9 months. Since then his development has come on leaps and bounds. He receives the best care and has built close relationships with those looking after him in the baby room.
The nursery always goes the extra mile to keep the children entertained and encourage social skills from creating indoor beaches to royal wedding parties outside. My son is always so happy when I pick him up and it’s such a relief to know he is in good hands. I could not have made a better choice in nursery.

My son has attended the nursery for almost two years and loves it there; so much so we have increased the number of days he attends.
Although the nursery is small, a great deal of thought has gone into using the available space - in particular, the garden. My son loves playing outside.
The staff are caring and know every child’s name.

Our baby has been there for a few months now and she is settling in brilliantly (after a difficult first few weeks). She loves her time in nursery, doesn't even bother waving when being dropped off, is always happy and smiling when being picked up. We also notice how much progress she makes - eating on her own, using crayons, standing and walking, etc. The staff is clearly taking development and learning seriously and the fact that our daughter is happy when we drop her off and pick her up, makes it so much easier for us to go to work. She waves happily at everyone and clearly feels at home there. We can see how many different activities she gets up to from the 'art' she brings home and from the pictures in the weekly newsletter.

The nursery is in a lovely old building near the station, has decent size outdoor space for the children to play and the staff are brilliant, engaged and caring. We would recommend this nursery to everyone.

The Conservatoire Nursery is a wonderfully nurturing environment with some exceptional staff who really care about all the children and their development. My 2-year-old has been at the nursery for over a year and has learnt so much while also having a great time playing on the bikes, in the sandpit and ‘baking’ mud pies with his friends!
The menu is great and the variety of foods they are introduced to means my son literally eats anything.
I would have no hesitations about recommending The Conservatoire Nursery and it’s so reassuring to know that he’s in great care while we are at work.

Having a nursery like The Conservatoire near our home is such a blessing! The individual attention and care given to each child is phenomenal. Our little girl attends the baby room thrice a week and like all babies, took her time to settle into the nursery; the staff were very understanding and supportive throughout this period. We appreciate the daily report we receive from the nursery about our daughter's day with them and also really enjoy the weekly newsletter. As parents, we are very happy with the nursery and feel satisfied that our daughter is in good hands while away from us.

My daughter has attended this nursery since November for 2 days a week. She really enjoys her time there, in fact, she cries when we pick her up! The children have a variety of toys to play with in the Baby Room, including a kitchen area; slide, and reading corner. They also have different activities each day such as making seasonal cards with glitter or exploring toy creepy crawlies in a sand pit. They go outside most days which my daughter really enjoys especially as she often gets to observe the older children at play. The food variety is good and she always seems to have eaten everything, when she doesn't we know she is unwell! The staff are all very friendly and caring. I definitely feel my daughter is safe at this nursery and it is benefiting her development.

Our 2-year-old son has been attending The Conservatoire Nursery since he was nine months old. We couldn't be happier with the level of care and attention he gets; the staff are truly dedicated and care deeply about each of the children. He is very happy there and has formed close bonds with other children as well as the staff, each of whom I feel really know him and care about him. His learning and development has been impressive and we believe that he is far ahead of where he would be if he was not in a nursery environment. He always does a good range of activities each day and regularly talks about things that he has been doing at nursery. He also regularly comes home covered in mud/paint/sand/dinosaur food etc which is an entirely positive thing!!

My Son loves going to nursery and doesn't look back when I drop him off as he is too busy hugging all the staff in the baby room. He is always happy when I pick him up and tired after such a busy day! He is learning new words, songs and loves playing with water and sound in the garden. He has great fun exploring with the toys and activities such as painting or playing with materials and doing art. My Son isn't the easiest but the staff have helped to get him eating, napping in the day and good at nappy changes!!

As a whole I believe London Eearly Years Foundation as a company bring a unique world of learning to all their attending children.

The Conservatoire, Blackheath is a prime example of this. All baby room staff are kind, friendly, warming and welcoming, and as a whole, amazing. My child never leaves without a big smile on her face for Daddy whenever I pick her up. Her keyworker is brilliant and always provides detailed feedback upon my arrival and genuinely loves being around all the children.

The nursery feels more like an extended family where the staff seem to really care about the children and their development. Both my kids love going in and enjoy the activities their nursery put on. The food is well planned and gets them experimenting new tastes.
It's a great nursery, I couldn't think of anywhere better for them and I'm glad that I can go to work knowing they will have a fun and interesting day.
