Reviews

9.2 Little Treasures Pre-School & Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.173)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Little Treasures Pre-School & Day Nursery 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Treasures Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.86 for Little Treasures Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (123 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.86

  • 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 4.313 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Treasures Pre-School & Day 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.313

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

The biggest clue for me that my daughter enjoys going to Little Treasures is how she gets very excited when we pull into the car park. Equally, when we're at home at the weekend she often picks up her nursery bag and walks to the door!

I have been very happy with Little Treasures, my daughter settled in very quickly and the staff were great in supporting her and me through her first few weeks.
They give a report at the end of each day to say what she's been up to, when she's slept and what she's eaten too which is helpful.
I also really like that all of the staff know my daughter's name, even those who don't work in her room.

All the staff know my child personally and targets for development are set and discussed on a regular basis.
The staff are very patient, enthusiastic and very caring.

Little Treasures has been a fantastic place for our little boy. Staff are without exception friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I love whenever possible the children go outdoors (walk or garden) and they participate in a fantastic range of activities. We always have a happy boy at the end of the day.

Extremely good nursery. My daughter went there so it was the obvious answer to put my son there too when he was born. They are very friendly and helpful, really accommodating and understanding of any need or requirement. I often have to beg my son to come back and give a kiss goodbye as he runs in without looking back, he loves it! We couldn't have picked a better nursery!

A fantastic nursery where the staff genuinely care about all the children. The little ones learn in such a fun environment. The food is healthy and activities are varied. The staff care about the children individually and support them whenever necessary. The nursery is clean and the children are always happy. I know when I leave my children at Little Treasures, they will be in safe hands.

I really value the care provided at the preschool. All the children are encouraged to think for themselves and forge a certain level of independence in their play and learning. My daughter feels loved by the staff and their approach has always been to make me and my other child feel like part of the extended family. I have no doubts that my daughter has been really well prepared for a move to school and she has thrived since moving to the preschool. I will really miss her there!

My daughter has had a fantastic time at the nursery and preschool. The staff are kind and gentle. They really focus on helping the children to develop. My son has also just started at the age of 1. I am confident in the knowledge that he will be very well cared for.

It was a heart wrenching experience handing over my 8 month old to a stranger, but from the outset we felt comfortable and reassured that our little treasure would be looked after in her second home. The established routines made our little one feel safe and having seen how positively staff respond to those in need of a few more cuddles when mummy leaves, made our hearts feel warmed. We are so grateful to every staff member who gives so much attention and love, helping our little one grow into a confident and well adjusted child.

My daughter attends 5 days a week and four years on, still wakes up on a Sunday and asks if she can go to nursery. They have really imaginative activities, lovely facilities, both indoors and outdoors and really good staff. When she was younger, they were always on hand with useful parenting tips that work and now that she's getting ready for school, they are really helping her to become mature and independent. I have always found them to be really accommodating with the hours she attends. I am so pleased we chose this nursery.
