Reviews

6.8 New Cross Community Nursery has a Review Score of 6.8 (6.753)

The Review Score of 6.8 (maximum of 10) for New Cross Community Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for New Cross Community Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.889 for New Cross Community Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 1.864 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for New Cross Community Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.227 , then divided by 2 = 0.114

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

Lyfe New Cross is a lovely nursery. The manager is so welcoming every morning and all the parents feel special and she encourages communication between parents which is very comforting for a first time mum. The baby room in which my son is in is lovely and bright. His key worker is amazing and has built an amazing relationship with him. She reassures me as a mother that my baby will be well looked after and I can see his excitement to get to nursery grow every day. I always love the feedback that she gives me at the end of the day. It makes me feel like I haven't missed anything.

This is a great nursery, but what makes it stand out from the other nurseries in the area is the space. It is a large building, set back from the main road, surrounded by a big playground. The under twos are upstairs and the bigger kids are downstairs. The rooms are so spacious and full of natural light. The under twos have a balcony area, so have free access to the outdoors. There is also a separate room with cots, so the babies can nap whenever they want rather than having to fit into the nursery routine.
My son joined the nursery when he was 9 months and is now 15 months. He has developed so much over this period. Other great aspects about this nursery are the price, which I think is relatively cheap for the area; the fact that it is a charity, so all profits are reinvested; and the flexibility i.e. I can book my son in for extra days whenever I want.
