  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Faces Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.819 for Little Faces Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.819

  • 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 4.373 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Faces Nursery is based on 5 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.373

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

My little girl loves going to nursery. I believe this is due to the warm, friendly and caring environment. The staff are very helpful and are always happy to answer any questions. They can always provide a rundown of the day so you don't feel you have missed out.

The preschool always goes the extra mile and tries to help in any way they can. They have been highly supportive and met the needs of our son extremely well. They aim to be as accommodating as possible and are always happy to chat through any concerns we may have about our son's progress. Little Faces has been a fantastic introduction into the world of education for our son.

We transferred our then 18-month-old daughter from another nursery for a couple of reasons. Since she has been at Little Faces Nursery her confidence and development has progressed immensely. We feel this is largely due to the attention and input from the nursery particularly her key worker. One member of staff, in particular, is fantastic with attention to detail with our daughter during her 2 days a week. Also the extra steps and touches she takes as parents and my daughter herself! (We have already recommended).

My daughter has been in this nursery for over a year now, she has developed so much. She absolutely enjoys going. All staff are very supportive and caring. My daughter has a very special relationship with her key worker, it's so lovely to see that bond. Excellent quality and very friendly staff. The only down is not having cooked meals provided but otherwise can't complain at all.

Kathy Wallis, Nursery Manager at Little Faces Nursery responded to this review on 06 Feb 2018:

Thank you for the review. It is always good to have feedback from parents so we can look at improving our service. With regards to the hot meals, we are currently in the process of looking into providing hot meals as an option.

Wonderful staff who welcomed my twins fantastically. They have helped improve my children's abilities, aided their toilet training, also making them clean within 2 months. My boys are happy and really like all the staff. They have formed trusting relationships, which is amazing for my two boys. They look forward to nursery now, every day. I have and will continue to recommend Little Faces to everyone. Thanks all, my boys are so happy and learning many new abilities every day.

All the staff have been so welcoming to our family, helping to settle our child in, which took a few weeks and making us all feel at ease. Everybody takes the time to talk to us and we always get a handover and personal goodbye each day.
The activities and toys provided cover a wide range and my daughter learns a lot without realising.
Most importantly my child loves going and counts down the days until her next session.
