Reviews

9.9 Little Bear's on The Green has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.916)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Little Bear's on The Green 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Bear's on The Green in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.916 for Little Bear's on The Green is calculated as follows: ( (120 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 Little Bear's on The Green is based on 11 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 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 7 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.

The main point why I choose this nursery was, it was NOT very big and crowded like others nearby. Hence, I could rely on the staff to be very caring, who could afford to pay attention to each child and where children could develop strong bonds. Having had my child there for last 4 months, I'm happy with my choice I made.

Our son and daughter both attend this nursery, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are brilliant - very caring and nurturing. They think carefully about what all of the children will enjoy and plan activities brilliantly. The children play outside all the time and regularly go on trips (e.g. to the theatre, the park and to a country park to see the Gruffalo). Both of our children settled in really quickly and are very happy at Little Bear's. The manager is also great and welcoming, and she knows all of the children well. Highly recommend!

Friendly, helpful, caring and knowledgeable staff, exactly the type of people we were hoping to find to help look after my young daughter.

After a bad experience with a childminder my daughter was very upset about being away from me and this in turn was very upsetting for me. However, the staff at Little Bear's were fantastic in helping her to settle in.
They were infinitely patient with both of us and treated my daughter as an individual rather than a number. I know now from first-hand experience that this is how they treat all of their children.

My daughter has so much fun and comes home with many new skills and friends.

I am very happy with the service provided at Little Bear's Nursery. I would recommend it to everybody. My Daughter is now in the Preschool room but has been in the previous rooms and all the staff always make her feel like it's home. Little Bear's has a family feel, not just because it is a house, but also because the classes are never too big and the staff really care. The garden is also a big enjoyable place for children of all ages. All together it makes it the perfect place for children to start school - Academically and Emotionally.

My little girl loves going and not once in three years has she said she didn't want to go! That's a pretty good recommendation.

I've been so happy with the nursery, they've helped my shy little baby turn into a confident happy little girl. The staff are lovely and genuinely care about all the children.

What a fantastic nursery. My daughter attends Little Bears 4 times a week. I really could not ask for a better nursery for my daughter to go to she has settled in so well. I love to see her playing confidently with the other children. I put this down to the amazingly attentive staff who all obviously love their jobs. The staff are friendly and helpful and really cannot do enough to make sure that both children and parents have a really positive experience.

The food is fantastic, varied, healthy and exciting and the children are encouraged to try lots of different tastes and textures.

We viewed a number of other nurseries before making the decision on Little Bears and we definitely made the right decision. This was the only nursery our daughter absolutely loved. She loves playing outside in the garden looking for snails and playing in the sandpit and mud kitchen.

I would happily recommend Little Bears to any other parent.

I'm extremely pleased with Little Bear's Nursery on the Green.

It's a small nursery with a maximum of c. 40. My son currently goes to the 3-18 months room which welcomes no more than 6 babies. Perfect for a start in the collective life.

The place all in all feels very homey. There are 4 rooms in total and a big garden for outdoor activities.

The staff is extremely friendly and warm. You soon feel that you know everyone and that everyone knows you. It feels good since my son will spend his first years there and grow within that little community :)

I would no doubt highly recommend it to anyone looking for a small and friendly nursery.

Little Bears On The Green is the most gorgeous, caring, loving environment I could wish for for my child's early years.
My daughter has been attending since 9 months old, and the nursery has helped shape her to become a kind, considerate, confident toddler.
The nursery itself is clean, bright and inviting to parents and children. The garden is just delightful! I can't praise all the staff who work there enough, they genuinely care for every child that comes through the door and my daughter is excited to go there every week.

Amazing nursery and amazing staff. I could not be happier. I had to move my son from another nursery which I found to be poor in everything. My son is happy, I am happy. I would recommend this nursery anytime. My son can't get enough of the nursery.

I am so happy sending my children to Little Bears On The Green. They are always raring to go in the morning, and I'm sure that's because of the warm and friendly atmosphere at the nursery – they are genuinely cared for and loved there. The staff are also really helpful and accommodating, which is so important as a working mum. Of course, my children's educational needs are met too, but it's their happiness that matters most to me at this time in their little lives.

Both my wife and I cannot be happier with Little Bears Nursery and the staff who work there throughout. Our daughter has been going since she was 1 and has moved to a number of the rooms on offer and the level of service has remained the same.

We would highly recommend the nursery.
