Reviews

6.7 Little Echoes Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.676)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Little Echoes Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • 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 Echoes Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.81 for Little Echoes Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 1.866 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Echoes Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.231 , then divided by 2 = 0.116

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

Over the past four years, Little Echoes have looked after all three of our children across the three different rooms. The staff provide a wide range of activities for the children during the day and the staff are always on hand for any questions. Our eldest went to school last year and while at nursery she developed so many of the required skills needed to settle into school quickly. The staff provide lots of feedback and are always friendly and approachable, our children love nursery!

My daughter really enjoys every day at nursery. She has a great relationship with her key workers and carers and I'm always happy to leave her in their care. My daughter has developed significantly and rapidly since joining, in her language, social motor skills. She's always stimulated with fun and educational activities from reading books, Jo Jingles, sensory room and garden/outdoor/playground time. Her eating habits are much improved: trying more foods and eating more overall. All this despite her dairy intolerance. The staff are always available to talk to us and take an interest in any changes to her home routine too. All procedures are explained clearly. I have had only fantastic experiences at Little Echoes.

My son started nursery at the beginning of September 2015, the nursery staff provided a excellent settling in programme over a period of one week. I felt reassured that all my son's needs had been discused and everyone was friendly and welcoming. My son very much enjoys nursery and greets me at the end of the day with a huge smile. The staff are very informative and communicate well regarding my sons progress.

Our daughter who is now 2 and 9 months has now been attending 2 days a week for a couple of months, after being with either Mummy or Nanny full time for 2 and a half years this was a big change for her and we had many a tear shed for the first few weeks when dropping her off, but thanks to the staff at Little Echoes she has settled in really quickly and we have no problems now, and we have noticed so much more confidence in her now around other children as well.
The staff there are all really friendly, helpful and completely understanding, and are always there to help us as parents as well as her, and we were amazed that they even managed to get her to have a sleep on the first day,and every day since, something we can't even manage to do at times these days.
We visited a few nurseries before seeing Little Echoes, and honestly when we first walked in we both looked at each other and nodded straight away, the atmosphere is so clean, bright and welcoming, compared to some of the others that just felt dirty and as if you were visiting a prison. The daily cost is maybe slightly more than the average but it is so worth it for the facilities and the atmosphere they have and I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone.

Little Echoes is a very friendly and welcoming nursery. It is very organised and well run. Our son really enjoys his time there. There are always plenty of different activities and toys laid out every morning upon arrival to inspire the children. The staff are excellent, caring and generally very attentive. It is a lovely place and we are very happy that our son goes there.
