Reviews

8.7 Little Monkeys Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.667)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Little Monkeys Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Monkeys Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 4 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 4.75 for Little Monkeys Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 3.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Monkeys Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.167

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

My son attended Little Monkeys from when he was eight and a half months old until leaving to start school.
The care, dedication, attention and education he received during this time was second to none. I absolutely credit the nursery team for his development during this time and for assisting him to be the confident, independent, articulate and caring little man he is now.
Little Monkeys helped him from his first steps to preparing him for school and I couldn't have asked for more! Thank you!

I have two grandsons that attend this nursery who both enjoy their time there. They enjoy all the different activities and both have a good relationship with the staff. The younger one, in particular, eats everything plus seconds!

Amazing settings and staff, location is great and children enjoy outings to the town, park and forest. They have a playground and soft-play inside. Home cooked hearty meals to develop their taste buds. My son has been going since he was only 5 months old and absolutely loves it (he's now 3). Staff are lovely and always ready to listen to concerns or help in any area.
Highly recommend.

Continue to be impressed with the range of activities that the children are involved in. This is especially true of pre-school yellow. Children are very happy at nursery and continue to build strong relationships with peers and staff. Have noticed a reduction in quality of social media posts and written correspondence - spellings etc. Children seem to love the food at the moment, often saying they had seconds - compliments to the chef! Really pleased to see some male members of staff. I think this is really important.
