Reviews

10 LittleSaurus Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.951)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for LittleSaurus Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.951 for LittleSaurus Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (194 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.951

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for LittleSaurus Nursery is based on 17 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 14 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.

My wife and I visited quite a few nurseries around Shoreham and further afield. As soon as we saw LittleSaurus we knew it was the perfect place for our baby in his early, formative years.
It's a huge credit to the carers and management who provide a first class service. My son is always challenged, the facilities are excellent and the staff are brilliant.
It's great to see my son's speech improving every day. He's an active, happy boy and LittleSaurus definitely has had a big part to play in that.

The nursery is fantastic. Very spacious. Great outdoor facility for kids. I love the fact there is a webcam. They are very good at keeping me informed about my child's development and wellbeing but most important is the fact that my little girl loves going there. She is so excited about activities they are doing in the nursery. Also, it's open until 6 pm which is very handy for me.

I am so happy with this nursery and so Is my daughter. I can really relax when she is there. She always goes in smiling and comes home smiling. It means so much to me. The staff are so friendly and always happy to chat about anything I want to talk about without rushing you. The nursery is so clean and tidy. My daughter loves it there so much.

The nursery consistently provides excellent care focusing on my child's specific needs and development. They have been supportive through changing times with advice and clear communication so any issues can be addressed at the nursery and at home. There are regular communication and friendly management which allows daily discussion. All the staff have excellent caring skills and the nursery seems to provide a wide range of activities to focus on learning and development, physical health and play.

I would highly recommend this nursery. We've had our two children in two other nearby nurseries over the last 8 months and by far this is the best. They settled after just one-hour session. It is one of the more expensive in the area but it's worth it. So so happy with Littlesaurus, as are my children.

A fantastic nursery. Our children have been so happy here, formed great relationships with other children and staff and flourished. They take great pride in organising lots of original activities and have a varied menu. Our children love the chef! I would wholeheartedly recommend.

We absolutely love LittleSaurus Nursery in Shoreham!! Everything about it is wonderful and our little boy loves it there.
It's big and spacious with a huge garden. It's amazingly clean all the time and the staff are fantastic.
We often ask for an extra day every few weeks and they are so accommodating at a moments notice.
Our little one is always happy to be dropped off there and a big smile on his face when we pick him up.
We would recommend the nursery a million times over we love it. Quite frankly we can't understand why people go elsewhere!!
Keep up the great work LittleSaurus.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this nusery and have nothing but positive things to say about it. From the moment we went to view Littlesaurus both myself and my husband felt all our worries and concerns fall away and we felt excited that we had found the perfect fit for our family. The facilities and space are outstanding but the whole place has a warm feel to it. The attention to detail from photos of the children's family on the wall to help them settle to allowing the children to become independent by having a free flow system where they can choose to play outside or inside and do so safely.
Every member of staff are dedicated to ensuring the kids are happy and they take the time to really get to know your child as an individual. The home cooked food which they make on the premises which my little one tells me is better than mummy makes means you can feel happy in the knowledge they are getting the best nutrition. My boy is very happy!

My son has been attending nursery for over a year now, the staff are amazing, caring and work extremely hard to ensure every child is happy and content. The nursery is very clean, spacious and the garden is massive with different areas for different ages. I particularly like the idea of the webcam which you can log in and see your child playing. Amazing team which I highly recommend to any parent who is looking to put their child into nursery.

All staff are interested in our son and have made a big effort to get to know him and us. His key worker is amazing and caring, knowledgable and provides brilliant daily feedback and assessment feedback. Any questions we have had, have been answered professionally with great knowledge and speed. Thank you.

I was nervous about putting my little boy into a new nursery. He had just settled into a lovely nursery in Brighton however due to work commitments we needed to find one in Shoreham. After visiting all of the nurseries in Shoreham, LittleSaurus was by far the best.
Clean, organised, structured and well managed whilst creating a stimulating environment that allows children to learn and have fun. The facilities are fantastic and the staff are outstanding. Given that this was my first child (he is now 18 months) I really wasn't sure what to expect. My expectations were only based on the nursery in Brighton and before even visiting LittleSaurus I thought our old nursery in Brighton was the best in Sussex, how wrong I was! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending LittleSaurus to anyone. The day my little boy goes off to school and no longer attends LittleSaurus will be a very sad day.

My first impression of the nursery was clean, great outside space and happy children. But the one thing that I think makes this nursery stand out is the staff. I can't sing their praises enough. They work extremely hard and always with a smile. Nothing is too much bother and they are always accommodating. I am a freelancer so sometimes have to work extra days & the nursery is always able to look after both of my children at the drop of a hat, something that is a huge plus point for me. The staff always integrate my children's personal development & interests into the day too which is important to me. The systems in place make the nursery run like clockwork. Although it is an institution that is part of a larger chain it doesn't feel like it. The relationship between the team, children and parents is very personal. Like all nursery's it's expensive, but I wouldn't be happier with my children anywhere else. They're happy, polite, confident, clean & well fed here. I couldn't ask for more.

Fantastic nursery. Both my children have thrived at LittleSaurus and it has prepared them well for school. Thank you for all the hard work from the lovely staff. The management have been very proactive if there was ever an issue and the children have made some life long friends.

My daughter has been going to LittleSaurus since she was 9 months old and we could not be happier with the service LittleSaurus has provided.
From day one, her key workers have provided a very happy environment for her, along with all the staff and she has flourished in all aspects in the time that she has been there.
We chose LittleSaurus over other local nurseries because of the fantastic outside space and facilities, but the real stars are the staff who work here.
All the staff seem genuinely happy to be there and provide a fun environment in which the children can develop.
Food is cooked fresh and the chef is some sort of magician in getting the kids to eat everything.
Nobody could ever say that sending a child to nursery is cheap, but I do feel that you get what you pay for and feel we have had value for money.
My little one will be going to School in September and LittleSaurus have provided her with the perfect start in her learning life.
We have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

My son has been going here since May 2015. He started doing 2 full days at 18 months. The staff made him so welcome he loved it from the beginning and after the great settling in sessions, he was straight in with no problems.
His speech improved so quickly and the staff were always there if I ever needed to talk.
He was so happy there, I moved him to 3 full days a week.
The nursery is really lovely with great outdoor space and is spotlessly clean and well maintained and I feel 100% safe and happy leaving my child there.
The staff are always so happy and obviously love their job.
The webcam facility is very comforting too. Knowing I can log on anytime to see how he is doing.
With their own chef on site, I'm also happy knowing he's having healthy, home cooked meals with the menu for each week up to view
100% recommended!!

My daughter has been going to LittleSaurus since she was 7 months old (and is now nearly 3). There has not been one day where she has not walked in really looking forward to her day.

I can't speak more highly of the team at the Nursery. Every single one of the team care and I feel always acts in the best interest of our daughter. They instil really important values and behaviours support and encouragement with a flexible approach.

They have a great structure and routine and right from an early age encourage, gently, learning of keys skills. They also have a fantastic, big garden and they always get the children outside for some fresh air wherever they possibly can- a huge plus for me.

The manager is brilliant, as is the deputy as well as the rest of the team. They always know about the children and how their days have been- and I feel 100% happy with her development, attention and care she gets at the nursery. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.
