The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Rainbow Nursery @ Little Forest Children's Centre 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rainbow Nursery @ Little Forest Children's Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 Rainbow Nursery @ Little Forest Children's Centre is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 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 3.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rainbow Nursery @ Little Forest Children's Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.286

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

As a full time working parent who needed childcare before and I was struggling to find somewhere, Little Forest are so accommodating and understanding, nothing is too much trouble, they truly care and love the children they look after as if they were their own. My son (2 and a half years old) adores nursery, he has come on leaps and bounds, the structure and boundaries they are given helps the children to enjoy and progress safety.

Their care for children is very genuine and real, the children enjoy the nursery so much. As parents, we have peace of mind knowing they are in the right hands! This is the best nursery and I will recommend to any parents living in Tunbridge Wells.
Their reports are very genuine, they watch our kids very closely and update all information on tapestry which helps parents to know what is happening in our children's life and what we can help them to improve more on.
Staff are very friendly and honest, no hidden lies. Very transparent of what exactly is happening. I rate this nursery is above outstanding, the best nursery any child will enjoy. Two of my children attended here.

When my little boy started at the nursery we were both welcomed very well. The staff are easy to talk to and very approachable. They made me feel at ease leaving him there. My little boy only goes one morning a week but he loves the staff and talks about them all through the week. They do a good handover and welcome in the morning. They all make the effort to say hello when we walk in. An all round lovely and welcoming nursery. Thank you all for being so great with my little boy.

My son absolutely loves it here, so did my oldest. Not long after joining I could see an improvement in my sons speech, he loves his teachers and friends. He can't wait to go in, sometimes wants to stay longer and more days. I think the staff are fantastic at what they do and welcoming new families and children. When my youngest son is old enough he too will be joining the nursery. I recommend this nursery very much!

Lovely nursery my little boy loves it here. Staff are very friendly, kind and caring. The outdoor space is fantastic with lots of playtime activities. They are very accommodating and professional with parents and children.
The outdoor space is particularly wonderful, with different areas set up where the children can play in the shade. There are lots of different activities such as water play, slides, peddle cars, dinosaurs, playhouses and lots more.
I would highly recommend it.
