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 4.75 for Lilliput Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lilliput Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

Reviewer Connection to Lilliput Day Nursery

Dear Lilliput

We felt that we had to let you know our feelings and thoughts regarding our son and his time spent at your nursery in Rubery.

Well, we were thinking this will be the hardest thing to write, as frankly, he is who he is due to our skill (luck!) and your wonderful nursery!

He has been with you since he was a babe in arms, we talked often as to whether we were doing the right thing for him, and how this would affect him as he grew.

We had nothing to worry about, he loved his days at the nursery and has developed into a wonderfully bright, sensitive and caring little boy, yes we had a part to play in this, but so did your staff.

He has been fortunate to have some special role-models, who have cared for him and seen him grow into the special little boy he now is.

We would like to thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for making our little boy as important to you, as he is to us.

Thank you so much.

Alison Lane

Job Title: Director

Joined: 2004


I am a qualified Nursery Nurse (NNEB) with more than 23 years of childcare experience. I have worked for both the private sector and Birmingham Social Services gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with a wide diversity of children and their families. Since 1999 I worked in the Early Years Department of New College in Bromsgrove and Redditch as an early years Trainer. I was involved in teaching and training future nursery nurses in NVQs and Diploma in childcare.

In 2005 I opened the first Lilliput Day Nursery in Rubery followed by Lilliput Day Nursery in Kings Heath in 2010. It was my aim to be able to offer good quality childcare that I would be happy for my children to attend. I am the Director of these nurseries and have a Manager in each one but I am a very visible presence within the nurseries and can be found at either one of them. I am a hands on owner and have a lot of input in what happens within the nurseries to ensure they continue to meet the high standards I would expect for my children.

Hi my name is Charlotte.
I am a level 3 qualified nursery nurse with 19 years of experience in childcare. Nine of which have been as part of a management team.

I also get a lot of satisfaction from building relationships with the many children and their families that come here.
