  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cumnor Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 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 4.964 for Cumnor Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 4.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cumnor Nursery 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.875

  • 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 Cumnor Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    7

Cumnor has far exceeded my expectations for a nursery for my son. We have used 2 previous nurseries, one in the same area and one in London and Cumnor has thoroughly impressed me and my son with their care and support. On Sundays, we are excited about going to the nursery the next day, which has never happened before. The amount the children learn even without realising they are learning is fantastic. They have so much to do throughout the day. Our Son's development and behaviour and confidence has moved on leaps and bounds, I couldn't recommend Cumnor enough.

My son loves coming to this nursery. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. My son is on the go all the time and I couldn’t think of anywhere else that could meet his needs. He comes home so happy and can’t wait to tell me all the amazing things he has done. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

The nursery is a fantastic environment for children. It is warm, welcoming and fun. Both my 2-year-old and 4-year-old love it and have grown and developed as a result. It has great facilities and wonderful staff. The staff have gone the extra mile for my 4-year-old who has special dietary requirements and helped make sure that he does not feel left out in any way.

My child has recently started at Cumnor House Nursery and I could not have wished for a better start. She absolutely loves it, the staff have been so welcoming and she looks forward to going. She has already brought home cookery delights made at nursery which she was so excited about! It was definitely the right choice for her and us and I would highly recommend it.

My daughter loves going to Cumnor Nursery and she has come on in leaps and bounds since she started there. I had preconceived ideas of what I wanted from a nursery and this is the only one in the area that matched up with my expectations. My daughter feels like she is a big girl at school and is happily integrating with staff and older children as well as the nursery children. Dance lessons are a particular highlight for her.

The nursery is clean, well equipped and full of smiley, friendly staff everywhere you turn, we wouldn’t go anywhere else.

This is not only an idyllic setting but the care of the children attending is exceptional. We had been to two other settings but the staff here go above and beyond our expectations. Our child is happy, growing in confidence & independence. She simply loves each and everyday.
