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 5 for Little Footprints Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Footprints Day Nursery Ltd is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0

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

This is a fabulous place for your little ones to grow and develop. Both my children have now been through the Little Footprints experience and are better children for it. The nursery is family oriented and treats all the children like they are their own. The staff ensure that your home routines are continued at nursery to provide a seamless transition when you drop your children off in the mornings. They keep you updated throughout the day via their secure Facebook page, regularly posting pictures of what your child has been up to and reassuring you that they are not missing you!!! The children participate in a wide range of activities at Little Footprints from colouring and cooking to outside and messy play. Lots of the activities that the children take part in are educational and as they progress through the nursery there are opportunities to bring home learning activities that you can do with your children at home.
My children have now gone on to Thundersley Primary school and have found the move to primary school a breeze. The nursery regularly take the children into the school to watch assemblies and special events and liaise with the Early years teachers as to how they can help prepare the new intake for school. Along with this they run the after school provision for the school, which further provides the consistency that makes your children feel safe.
As a working mum I don't know where I would have been (and still would be) without Little Footprints. I can leave my children safe in the knowledge that they are happy and well cared for while I work, which is one less thing to worry about.
