Reviews

7.2 Little Oaks Nursery has a Review Score of 7.2 (7.231)

The Review Score of 7.2 (maximum of 10) for Little Oaks 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Oaks Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.75 for Little Oaks Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 2.481 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Oaks Nursery is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.962 , then divided by 2 = 0.481

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

Well I would just like to say it's the perfect place to send your little one. I love the staff, so does my child, he loves the activities and the special events they hold each year on lovely grounds at the hall. Very friendly and happy play for all the children, my child has had the best experience and start for school here and I'm sure we will both miss it very much as he leaves for primary school. Highly recommended, also great value for money.

Little Oaks Nursery is a small friendly nursery, the staff are very caring and friendly and the children warm to them straight away. They have recently got a new manager and she has improved the nursery a great deal, bringing lots of new ideas. I have two children at the nursery and they have been very happy there from day one and I am very happy with the nursery and staff and cannot think of any negatives about Little Oaks Nursery.

I love Little Oaks, my daughter went there along with my niece and nephew and my three year old son now attends the nursery. The staff are very friendly and approachable and have a great relationship with the children. The nursery is well run, setting the children in a good place for when they start school. The activities daily for the children are great and differ daily providing the children with the correct tools to use their imaginations and learn to integrate with others.

I have been attending Little Oaks Nursery now for well over three years with my daughter and now my son. I have been extremely happy with the nursery throughout. The setting is warm and friendly and the staff are kind and caring. Since the nursery has been under new management, it has gone from strength to strength, with new ideas and ways of play and learning, to encourage the childrens progression and learning, and to ensure the children have an enjoyable time there.
