Reviews

9.1 Lilliput Village Children's Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.095)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Lilliput Village Children's Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lilliput Village Children's Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 9 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 4.674 for Lilliput Village Children's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (99 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.674

  • 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 4.421 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lilliput Village Children's Nursery is based on 9 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 21.4 positive Reviews (107 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 21.4 Target = 0.421

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

I had my two kids at the nursery and since the first time we visited Lilliput, we had a nice vibe and the perfect atmosphere for my little ones. I would like to thank in particular my children's carer, she has been amazing for my two kids during this five + years. I wish her all the best where ever she goes. Sadly it was time to leave the nursery and we are taking with us only nice things to remember about this place and the girls.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. All the staff are friendly, caring and they cannot help you enough and go to great lengths to make the child, nan and carer feel welcome at ease.
My grandchild has improved so much since starting this nursery and loves coming to see everyone.

Both my children have attended here. First child 2011-2014 and the second since early 2015. I had no hesitation in sending my second child, as the first had a wonderful time there, with very good care and encouragement to learn. The foundations he developed here have enabled him to excel at school. The last few months have seen the nursery undergo modernisation and improvement in regards the facilities and equipment, making it a very well equipped setting. I find my daughter loves her sessions here and often doesn't want to leave. Her development is coming along really well, and I am kept up to date with her achievements and progress regularly.

My son is happy and settled at the nursery. He has made friends and has a good relationship with staff. We've had a positive experience with the nursery and I would definitely recommend it. I particularly like seeing work he has done and he often brings home lovely handmade bits.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great activities for the children inside and out. My little one has a great rapport with all the assistants and is comfortable and loving towards them. Impressed with the improvements made so far, look forward to the future.

My child went to Lilliputs Nursery, she loves all the staff here and has formed a really good relationship with staff. She always asks me when we are going to see them. I feel that they helped develop my child ready for school. The care for my daughter was fantastic.

My daughter is 11 months old and has been at the nursery for a number of months. As a new mum, I was nervous and worried about leaving my daughter in others care. I have felt nothing but relief and comfort from how staff have settled my daughter and made me feel comfortable. My daughter often does activities that are given to me to take home and her observations are excellent considering her age. Overall, I would refer this nursery to anyone and always be very happy to send my daughter here.

My Son first came to this nursery at eight and a half months old for four days a week, he's now 13 months old. He's my first child and I was extremely anxious about leaving him but he absolutely loves it. He never cries or clings to me when I leave him, just gives a beaming grin at his carer and puts his arms out for them most mornings. His development is brilliant and I put that mostly down to the work that the staff do with him. I'm greeted with hello's every single time I walk in, they all know my Son's name and I'm told what he's been up to each day even by staff that aren't based in his room. This shows me that all of the staff take an interest and actually care how my Son spends his day. I actually go out of my way each morning and evening to drop my Son off and collect him, I was a bit worried about this at first but I wouldn't dream of taking him anywhere else. Huge thank you to the staff, I couldn't recommend this nursery enough!

We have moved to the Basildon area about 3 years ago and after visiting few nurseries, we fell in love of Lillyput nursery straight away. My son was there since he was 1 year and half and he settled into the room very well. He has now left the nursery to go to school and he does miss the place and his friends.

During his time at the nursery 3 particular cares have made a tremendous impact on him. He was always happy to go to nursery and I felt that my son was always cared and loved.

Never had any complaints or nothing negative to say about the nursery.

I would recommend this beautiful place any day :)

Anyone looking for a fantastic nursery to send their child then this is the place, my son has attended here from the age of 2 /2 and he is now leaving to start school in September. He has grown into such an independent little boy and has learnt so much through play.
The staff are amazing and I cannot fault the nursery in anyway. A wonderful place for any child to attend. My son and I will be sorry to leave.
