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 4.333 for Little Learners Nursery & Preschool, Ilford is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.333

  • 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 3.404 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Learners Nursery & Preschool, Ilford is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.154

It's a fantastic nursery. We moved house especially to join our darling daughter here. What really sums up this nursery is that at times the staff surprisingly know more about the child than yourself! They take very good care and maintain very good rapport with the parents. I have seen several other nurseries but none come close to the overall convenience and security associated with this nursery.

A good nursery among the nurseries in the surrounding areas. Staff are good and friendly. What works for this nursery is they are open up to 6:30 pm as against 6 pm at other nurseries. That really helps if both parents are working far. My child seems happy, so all good. Everything else is good and nothing to be complaining about.

Both my children attend little learners for 2 days a week. They settled in well and connected with their key workers immediately. There is a good mix of ages and I like the way the children can integrate with other ages groups. The rooms are a good size and have lots of things to do. The menu always looks nutritious and my boys always finish their plates.

I would highly recommend this nursery. my only slight criticism is I would love more uploads on Tapestry - but this is a very minor and more for me than my children :)

The nursery provided an excellent environment for my child to learn and explore things. The teaching staff were extremely friendly and my child would love to go to school everyday. She developed very good communication after going to school. Also I would like to thank the nursery cook for the yummy food. The nursery provided a strong foundation for her to start the big school. We love and thank Little Learners!

Michaela, Admin at Little Learners Nursery & Preschool, Ilford responded to this review on 20 Jul 2016:

Thank you for leaving such a great review. We wish you and your daughter all the best with her next step.

My little one has been going to this nursery for nearly 3 years now and he absolutely loves it!
It was a struggle to get him settled in, in the start but everything went very smooth once he got used to the place and people there.
Any issues raised have been addressed promptly which is the good part of it.
He has made lots of friends - both kids and the teachers.
Kids are the most precious thing to have in life and not even a bit of trouble to them can be bearable!
It is really a good feeling to know that your kid is happy while you are at work.
So I would like to thank all the staff who made my little angel feel comfortable in the nursery.
Also thanks to the nursery cook (not mentioning the names as suggested to avoid here :)), my little one loves the chick peas curry with rice that is served there. He asks me to learn from the nursery cook :) haha may be I should try to do that soon!

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery P. I'm glad you and your daughter are enjoying your time with us at Little Learners.

This nursery is an excellent communicative environment for my son, which in the beginning he didn't speak English and now can carry out a conversation in English. The staff are good, they understood him when he couldn't express in English and he is very close with some of the staff. The activities are different which is very good for their development.

This nursery has taken excellent care of both my children. The staff are caring, polite and loving. My daughter loves to attend and has grown into a bright and confident young lady. Staff always showed a positive and caring interest whilst I was pregnant and this was why I decided to let my son attend. My son has a medical condition and they were so committed to learning about managing his illness. They show him so much love and care and speak nothing but the highest compliments. They take all my concerns serious and to the extra mile to please parents.
