  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.905 for Little Pips Nursery Cheltenham is calculated as follows: ( (309 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 336 Ratings = 4.905

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Pips Nursery Cheltenham is based on 23 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target Reached = 1

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

A little note from highly satisfied parents. Thank you Little Pips team for the wonderful care you show to the kids. My son, when he joined the nursery, was not only new to the nursery, also the town. But from day one he was happy to go to nursery. Thank you and well done.

The staff and management are absolutely amazing at Little Pips. They show genuine care and interest in my child and his development and education.
Not always the most confident child, the staff managed to have him settled in no time to full-time nursery. If you are looking for a small and intimate setting that feels like home for your child. I would recommend Little Pips.

Lovely homely feeling nursery with lovely ladies that look after the children. Great displays and outdoor play area for the children.

Fantastic to have an outdoor classroom too.

Lovely clean nursery and my girls come out happy every day.

I would thoroughly recommend this nursery and the central location and good parking is an added bonus.

After moving my daughter from another nursery which I was not happy with I have been more than impressed with Little Pips. The staff are very warm and caring with the children. The nursery and its toys are very clean and tidy, also they have a brilliant garden for the children. Overall Little Pips is a great nursery that I would and have recommended.

We are so lucky to have found this amazing nursery for our 2-year-old daughter. She started 6 months ago and her settling in was not easy but the dedicated staff help us through it. Now she is a thriving little girl who comes home with some new words every time and some artwork. The children can enjoy the different designated areas in the garden and when the weather is nice they are taken for walks to the park. They even have a 'relaxing' room with a fish tank!

I wouldn't send my daughter to any other nursery. I was always nervous about leaving her at only 6 months old but the nursery made me feel so at ease and made the whole process so easy. My daughter has now recently turned two and is a thriving young child. Her development has come on so much and some of that is down to the lovely staff at Little Pips. They encourage all areas of development - my daughter could count to 10 before her 2nd birthday.

Their communication with parents is fantastic through daily handovers and learning journeys. They serve home-cooked meals which my child loves and she is fussy! They have been brilliant and adapting to my child's allergies as she cannot have banana or rice and this has not been a hassle for them at all. The staff genuinely love and care about every child that comes through the doors. I would recommend this nursery to anybody looking for one where you know your child is secure and loved.

My daughter has been at Little Pips for nearly a year and has settled in so well.
She is always excited when I drop her off and loves all the staff. The staff send home arts and crafts done at nursery and keep a scrapbook and it's lovely to see pictures and videos of what she has been doing on Learning Book.
The friendly and welcoming setting is perfect for my daughter and I couldn't be happier with the way she has settled and bonded with the amazing team.

Our son has been here for one year and loves every minute of being at nursery. Staff are amazing with the kids. They are lovely and helpful especially if our son needs to come for an extra day at the last minute.

Would definitely recommend - fantastic nursery!

The nursery and staff are very welcoming and informative about the care of my child and explain very well what activities they are doing and why.

He is very happy to come in every day and is always beaming when I pick him up. His confidence and abilities are coming on leaps and bounds and the staff are amazing at helping him through all things and so encouraging.

Little Pips Nursery Cheltenham provides a wonderfully warm and caring environment for the children in their care. Their child-centred, gentle approach is wonderful and has been brilliant at supporting and reassuring our child. They are responsive and quick to deal with any worries or concerns.

The garden area is huge and a real plus point - our child adores it. Little Pips Nursery Cheltenham graduate sessions are also to be highly commended. The work they do in preparing children for the move to school is second to none.

I think this school is outstanding. I had my son in another school before and he did not take to it, as soon as I put him into Little Pips he has been so much happier and he loves going.

When my little girl started she was shy and cried every time I left her. Since she's been at Little Pips (nearly a year) she has come out of her shell. Every time I pick her up she's happy and talks about her day. The staff are amazing at their job and are so lovely and welcoming. The nursery itself is great, big garden and well secured. Can't fault the nursery or the staff!

I have seen the nursery change hands and couldn't be happier with the developments that have taken place. My son used to take a while to bond with people but Little Pips have done everything possible to develop his self-confidence and he now runs into nursery happily. His self-confidence is even growing now outside of nursery which I feel is due to him having such a comfortable setting when away from his parents. Thank you, Little Pips!

This nursery is like a family, staff are friendly and nothing is too big a job for them. The rooms are friendly and inviting. I know that my son needs are met and I am happy to leave him with the staff. Just after one month my son started to say some words like "car" and "digger".
