The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Puddleducks of Liss 'Ltd' 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Puddleducks of Liss 'Ltd' in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.8 out of 5 from 2 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 4.944 for Puddleducks of Liss 'Ltd' is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 1.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Puddleducks of Liss 'Ltd' is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250 , then divided by 2 = 0.125

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

Reviewer Connection to Puddleducks of Liss 'Ltd'

  • Mother of Child

I've been so impressed with Puddleducks of Liss. They took our daughter in on very short notice but I was never made to feel like we were an inconvenience - from day one both our daughter and us have been made to feel part of the Puddleducks family.

Our daughter has a speech delay and the whole team have been great - encouraging her to find her voice through song and play, suggesting techniques to improve her command of language and being really cooperative with the Speech and Language assessment team with the NHS. Since starting last year her speech and language has improved a huge amount and I credit a large portion of that progress to the expertise and encouragement from the team at Puddleducks.

She spends time singing, dancing, playing with the other children, dressing up, role play, colouring, painting and taking part in craft projects - I'm sure there is lots more but this is as much as she can communicate with me.

They've recently helped us with potty training and continue to offer advice whenever we ask for it. Their communication skills both in person and by email are excellent - I've never had to wait more than 24 hours for any query I've raised.

The building is secure and I've not worried once about her getting out or anyone getting in that isn't supposed to - the team have signing in and signing in procedures nailed down so I've never had any worries about that. She regularly goes on walks to the local village, the park, the library bus with them as well as group trips to local attractions and events and really enjoys taking part in these trips.

It is an excellent nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a childcare facilities. The building is good for it's use, the facilities are great but the team are what makes it such a wonderful place- their communication is everything you'd hope for and you feel confident in their ability to look after your children.

The staff at Puddleducks are very caring and I feel secure when leaving my children in their capable hands. I have experienced every part of Puddleducks from the baby room through to the pre-school facility and have found each stage to be tailored to my children's needs. Puddleducks offer a range of trips which my eldest child very much enjoyed. The nursery excels in helping children become ready for school, with my eldest benefiting from five trips with the nursery to her infant school. As a result, she was happy and secure when she started her reception year.

I couldn't be happier with the service provided to my daughter. The staff are very friendly and caring. My daughter and previously my son always enjoy their experience at Puddeducks with positive stories of the days/ events discussed every day. The staff are a credit to the nursery and I couldn't recommend highly enough.
