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 4.514 for Le Nid Childcare - East Dulwich Grove is calculated as follows: ( (121 Excellents x 5) + (84 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 214 Ratings = 4.514

  • 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 4.38 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Le Nid Childcare - East Dulwich Grove is based on 7 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 18.4 positive Reviews (92 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18.4 Target = 0.380

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

We sent our daughter here for 4 months and have only taken her out because we left London. The staff are all really friendly and nice and genuinely care for the children and are always reassuring. They also made drop off and pick up a dream by spending time with us to exchange information and give updates. My daughter, in a really short time frame, bonded with staff and was quite happy!

My son has been attending the nursery for almost 2 years now and he has been very happy here. Despite some of the issues with previous management and Ofsted rating, we have never had any concerns with the care my son has been given. The current staff are amazing and positive changes of new management in introductory science-based educational exercises has been great. The feel given is fresh and healthy. My son loves the outsourced tennis coach on Wednesdays. All the other children at the nursery are lovely and my son has a great mix of friends there.

My daughter joined the nursery in September and has settled in wonderfully. The staff are caring, enthusiastic and she receives very personalised attention. She thoroughly enjoys herself there and experiences may new activities but most important of all to me is the caring and friendly atmosphere.

My daughter really enjoys her time at nursery. I find the staff to be very caring, nurturing and really love the children they look after.
The activities and resources are excellent and the children at the nursery are lovely. The outside facilities are particularly good, especially for London.

Our son has been with Le Nid since September 2016. Overall we are very happy with the nursery. Our son has developed very well and learnt a lot from the carers and other children.
They have a great outdoor area, good rooms and organic meals.
We were a bit concerned about high staff turnover, but to our knowledge, the management is working on this.
We will be sending our eleven month old daughter to this nursery soon.

My son was in the preschool room from October 2016 until he started school in September 2017. My daughter is now in the preschool room, having also been at the nursery since October 2016. I have seen a lot of change at the nursery and understand the less favourable feedback but must say the new manager is making significant and very visible changes for the better. Much more of a true child-led curriculum, play with natural materials, messy play, more natural play in the garden. Previous issues have been I think with management knowledge and direction, and definitely not with the attention and care of the staff in the rooms. I've always found staff lovely, especially in the preschool room. My children have been happy at Le Nid.

My son has been in attendance at Le Nid Childcare for almost 2 years and I couldn't be happier. It provides a nurturing and safe environment for the children. All the teachers have been wonderful and I feel that my little one has been thriving there. The building is lovely and they organise plenty of extra activities such music classes, tennis and Spanish lessons. The management is always keen on listening to parents and they take on board their advice. I cannot praise Le Nid Childcare highly enough.

We have had a mixed experience with Le Nid Childcare.

On the one hand, our child seems very happy there. The nursery has a nice garden and there is a lot of time devoted to free play. Some staff are absolutely excellent. However, there is much room for improvement. The nursery has seen very high staff turnover and some staff are struggling with EYFS. The change in management has been for the best and we are hoping that the nursery is on it's way to getting better.

My child has attended for 5 months and I continue to be very impressed by the nursery and in particular the dedicated and passionate staff. Everyone from the receptionist onwards is welcoming and seem to be professional and yet relaxed.

I have not experienced such a welcoming atmosphere in any other nurseries,

It is a bright and open building, children make great use of the large outdoor space.

I hope owners and management make efforts to keep staff happy, support them and recruit more people. Happy staff, equally happy children.

Overall facilities are excellent but worth asking staff what new equipment, toys or improvements needed now.

Regular posting up on the reception and room walls of the children's latest materials and learning goals would help busy parents quickly and easily grasp all the wonderful things the children seem to be doing and improve decor.

There is a fantastic app with photos and very informative newsletter.

A great place to be and to visit.

Good care. Happy with the care and attention given. Good feedback at the end of the day.
Improvement area - there could be better handover and communication of specific requests between staff members.

My son loves nursery so I'm happy. He is learning Chinese and French and knows his colours. He is trying a variety of foods I do not cook at home which is good. I have another daughter who I am more than happy to start in September.

My daughter began here just over a month ago and has had a wonderful experience so far. She absolutely loves coming to nursery and the setting and staff are fantastic. I was worried about how she would settle as she has difficulties with new people, but she settled very quickly. The staff were extremely caring and she's always kept busy and entertained.

My son has been attending the nursery since it opened and I have nothing but positive things to say, in particular and what has prompted me to take the time to write this review is the excellent care staff provided for my son who was very unwell. I was phoned by the manager and advised my son had a temperature of 40C. She had already given him Calpol before calling me, I am a GP so this was absolutely the right thing to do, and had started to cool him with flannels. I work quite far away so advised them to cool my son in a cold bath and really encourage him to drink water. When I arrived I walked in to see him being fanned by the practitioner, he was calm and had a temp of 37C - he had clearly been very well cared for. I was so pleased and felt reassured that all staff REALLY cared and they even called twice the next day to check how he was doing! the deputy manager suggested taking one of the guinea pigs out of the hutch to cheer him up with!

We moved to the area in January and we were very lucky to find Le Nid, and are very pleased with everything we have seen so far. All our other local nurseries were full with long waiting lists but fortunately there was space at Le Nid. The nursery is big, in a grand old house with high ceilings, large windows and everything has been newly refurbished. The outside area has lots of activities to keep the children occupied. The food appears to be very good, and mostly organic. There are lots of activities during the day time and they also make trips out when there is some winter sun. Staff are all very good, extremely attentive and care for the children. The staff ratio is almost too good, as we worry he is getting too much attention(!), but this is changing as more and more parents discover the nursery and numbers are steadily increasing. There are lots of books, puzzles and they even arrange language classes and music sessions. Strongly recommended.
