Reviews

6.5 Footsteps Day Care has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.453)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Footsteps Day Care 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Footsteps Day Care in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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 4.917 for Footsteps Day Care is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 1.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Footsteps Day Care is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.071 , then divided by 2 = 0.036

  • 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 Footsteps Day Care

  • Mother of Child

This is a wonderful nursery, that my son attended for two years. The staff were outstanding, initially my son was uncertain and quiet among unfamiliar faces. The teachers gradually eased him into nursery life, which enhanced his personality and helped him grow into a confident character. The nursery teachers encouraged the use of toilet training, which helped ease the process from home into a different surroundings. All teachers are friendly, polite, helpful and make both child and parent feel at ease. Activities, including toys and outside area play, are plentiful which encourage advance learning. I really believe Footsteps have shaped my sons development in such a positive way, that he looks forward to learning and attending school. Well done Footsteps staff, you have been brilliant!

My son attended this nursery pre-school and we were both heartbroken when he started school as it meant he had to leave this nursery, but great news he has been able to go back during the school holidays. All the staff at this nursery are great, I genuinely feel that they are my friends and my son genuinely feels cared and loved by the staff. We just wish he could be there full time instead of school as I know the staff look after him as if he was their own. I don't know what I would have done without this nursery I am just so happy we found Footsteps.

My daughter has been attending Footsteps Nursery for over 2 years, she has gained a special bond with all of the staff here and made many special friends. She loved every minute here and has achieved so much along the way. The manager is absolutely brilliant and understanding and the staff are always happy to help. They always encouraged my daughter to be independent, experience as much as possible and have prepared her for pre school and reception, and it shows. My daughter is really sad to be leaving this nursery but will definitely be returning to show her progress. Thank you Footsteps you have been incredible in every way. We miss you already.

My son absolutely loves going to this nursery. He has made so many friends and built up so much confidence.
The staff are all friendly and easy to talk to. I highly recommend this nursery to any parent looking for a decent day care and somewhere you can leave them with confidence.
The Nursery is more like a school than most other nurseries so school wont be as daunting. I love that the uniform has been brought in, saves on personal clothes and nice that all can be the same. Also because it attaches onto Albert Bradbier primary school they can use the playgrounds in holidays.
I only wish they had a baby room so my little girls could have the same experience my son had.

I cant recommend this nursery enough i have loved having my son attend here.
