Reviews

9.4 Little Jewels Pre-School has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.372)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Little Jewels Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Jewels Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.583 for Little Jewels Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (134 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.789 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Jewels Pre-School is based on 6 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.789

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

Little Jewels is a fantastic nursery, staff are the loveliest people, professional yet compassionate and engaging. Our children (now in reception year) thrived during their time at LJ. We highly recommend the nursery for anyone who wants to fully trust their childcare provider - LJ staff are simply excellent!

Little Jewels Pre-School is my daughter's second family - and sometimes feels like mine too! The staff are warm and caring and went the extra mile to help my daughter (a very shy 2-year-old at the time) settle in. She's grown in confidence, and it's a joy to see how happy she is there. Little Jewels is a fun, creative and supportive environment, but I also feel my daughter's early education is taken seriously. The regular reports are detailed and sensitive and show a great understanding of her strengths and challenges. A really lovely place.

My son started attending Little Jewels 3 years ago. He had a developmental delay with his speech but the staff were supportive and were able to recommend and put in place therapy sessions by liaising with specialists. He has excelled in his development and I know that the dedication, commitment and nurturing from the staff team have greatly contributed to this. I feel that Little Jewels provides more than what a nursery service offers. At Little Jewels it feels more like a family structure, my son loves it at this nursery. I have no concerns about his safety as I know that the staff are professional and follow safeguarding policies and procedures. I am always updated on his progress and achievements which are greatly appreciated. I also love the fact that there is a diverse staff team and each member of staff brings something special to the provision. My only negative is that he has to leave Little Jewels to start school in September.

1000000 characters wouldn't be enough to say how amazingly wonderful, brilliant, super helpful, happy, kind, caring and compassionate all the staff are. But the most truly beautiful thing to see is the real dedication, joy and love they show towards caring for all the children that they are asked to look after each day. Honestly, it is so reassuringly nice knowing that my little nipper really is truly safe, happy, cared for and loved while there, so a BIG BIG thank you all so much ladies!
Little Jewels, Little (15 Karat Blue Diamonds) Jewels fits you all so much better. x

A really friendly, lovely nursery.
The best thing about it are the staff who seem to genuinely care about the children and there is a low turnover, so my girls have got to know them all really well. I have three children here the youngest, twins, started when they were one and settled incredibly quickly - they haven't cried once at drop off. All the different ages are together - which works well for me as the twins can be with their older sister during the day (if they want).

A fun and very happy place. Key workers are all very friendly. A great environment.
It's great how children of all ages mix together. I feel very comfortable leaving him in a nurturing place.
No idea how they get them all to go for a lunchtime nap but it works.

I am extremely pleased with the nursery. My children love to go, and my youngest who goes only occasionally, gets her bag every morning to go with her brother! They enjoy every moment and learn a lot!

We love Little Jewels and so do our 2 children who attend there. In fact today (Sunday) my oldest asked if he could go and was very sad when I reminded him that it was closed and he couldn't! Our 1 year old started in January and took no time to settle in, he gets excited when we reach the gate each morning because he knows how much fun he's going to have. As others have said, the staff are the key, they are all so caring and lovely and I have total faith in leaving my children with them. It's a safe, warm, creative and happy environment. Don't be put off by the space, they work as well as they can with what they have and the kids don't mind at all.

My daughter loves Little Jewels - there's lots of space for her to run around, a great stock of toys and activities and a regularly changing calendar of fun things to do. Best of all, all the staff are incredibly warm and loving - each and every one of them shows genuine enthusiasm for their work and a huge amount of kindness to the children in their care. We're delighted we chose this nursery.

My only regret is my daughter didn't start at Little Jewels earlier! She's been there since her 2nd birthday and will sadly 'graduate' this year when she starts at our local school. As other parents have said, the staff are what make Little Jewels so great. They clearly love our children and take pleasure and pride in their development. In what I'd describe as humble surroundings and facilities, they create magical days for our kids full of play, learning, structure and love. Our daughter likes to arrive at 8 on the dot and we're literally 'in trouble' if we collect her too early!

In addition, the parent updates, summer & Xmas plays, local trips and safety all exceed my expectations.

I can only hope school lives up to my now high expectations of care.

Little Jewels is a fabulous nursery, primarily because the carers are so wonderful. The staff are very flexible and my daughter runs inside in the morning without looking back. My son went to the nursery for about a year and now goes back during term breaks. My daughter has been there for over a year. The facilities don't look like anything special but this is outweighed by the excellent care that my children receive. I was also worried when my daughter started that naps on a mat in the large room would make it difficult for her to sleep, however, she adjusted very quickly and it wasn't an issue at all. I would definitely recommend the nursery.

Our son has been attending Little Jewels for over 2 years and is very happy there. He has grown from a very shy 2 year old to a very confident 4 year old since he has been there. The staff are very warm and friendly and there is a good 'key worker' scheme in place which ensures excellent communication and feedback at the end of each day along with parent & key worker' term' meetings and catch ups. Our son has learnt so much and comes home each day with tales of his learnings, together with examples of his work such as pictures and paintings. The management team are very good and approachable and make the best of the space and the facilities they have. I would definitely recommend the nursery to anyone in the area.

Great staff and very caring atmosphere. Really feel secure that my kids are being well looked after and getting plenty of attention. Staff are very flexible to our sometimes very short notice changes to schedules and provided a great support to our family.

I could not be happier with Little Jewels and all the staff members,
We have had to go away for little while and one of my daughter's recurring questions whilst away has been "When can I go back to Nursery". Says it all really.

A small but perfectly formed nursery with the best and brightest team of staff to look after our little girl. Complete trust in the team who make her feel like a superstar every day she arrives. Great feedback sessions and activities eg. drama classes with plays for parents to attend. Highly recommended!

Our daughter attended Little Jewels between January 2014 and September 2015. She was 2 when she started, and left a few days after her fourth birthday. She absolutely loved her time at Little Jewels. We enjoyed walking to Little Jewels every day, and talking about what she would do there. Often when we picked her up she was so engrossed in play she didn't even notice we were there. I think this reflects just how well-integrated and happy she was there. The nursery's approach to child development is open, caring, creative and sensitive to each child's needs and personality, at a time when they are changing rapidly and growing as children. Little Jewels' biggest strength and asset is its staff. They are a fantastic group of highly motivated, knowledgeable and kind professionals, whose passion is clearly early years education and care. We got to know them well and our daughter was always happy with them. I could not praise them more highly. The nursery has some physical limitations (size and outdoor space) but the dedication and commitment of the staff more than makes up for these. We highly recommend Little Jewels - it does Harringay an enormous service.
