Reviews

9.6 Footsteps Nursery & Pre School has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.578)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Footsteps Nursery & Pre School 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Footsteps Nursery & Pre School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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 4.851 for Footsteps Nursery & Pre School is calculated as follows: ( (147 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.851

  • 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 4.727 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Footsteps Nursery & Pre School is based on 8 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.727

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

We are very pleased with all aspects of our chosen nursery. The staff are first class and activities are always geared towards learning. We do however feel the value for money is exceptionally poor in England.

Our daughter started at Footsteps at six months old, she does two days a week and she loves it, she comes home really happy.
We cannot believe how much she has developed in a month, with eating and sitting up on her own, she has fresh amazing food every day. We get a report each day on what activities, food etc...

All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Every morning I drop off my son, he is always happy to go and the staff give him a hug when I leave (he loves the extra comfort).

Our experience has been outstanding! We have every confidence when we drop off our daughter that she is well cared for and enjoys herself. I always feel like we are kept in the loop in terms of what she has been doing during the day and what she has been doing to aid in her development.

My daughter has been at Footsteps Nursery & Pre School in Dosthill since she was 9 1/2 months old. She is now in the preschool class. The staff have always been very friendly and supportive and my daughter loves going to nursery.

Going to Footsteps has helped to turn her into the confident, independent little girl that she is today.

Wonderful nursery with friendly staff. Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that my child is happy and healthy. Super extra curricular activities such as forest school, French and Makaton. I wouldn't take my child anywhere else now as Footsteps Nursery & Pre School really have set the bar high for outstanding childcare.

My son has been attending this nursery since January 2015 and enjoys every minute. Finding a nursery was very daunting but soon after attending my son quickly settled and started to make wonderful relationships with staff and other children. He has learnt so much and really is growing into a super toddle. He has moved from the baby room to the toddler room and continues to thrive. He surprises me everyday with new skills and words which he is taught at nursery. I am so happy with this nursery, I have already reserved a place for my new baby expected spring 2016. Thanks Footsteps.

We have been using Footsteps in Dosthill now for over 4 years. Footsteps offers a warm caring environment with lots of fun educational activities. Staff are all very welcoming (and also importantly most of them have been there for several years which provides confidence that this is a good nursery and good employer). Nursery is clean and tidy. It is quite a small nursery, but they make the most of their space they still have a lovely outdoor forest school and also do off site trips to the local nature reserve that my eldest loved.

I could recommend Footsteps Dosthill Nursery. My little boy started going when he was 11 months and he has loved it since day one. I really do believe he loves it so much due to the amazing staff in the baby room. They are unbelievably caring and do so many great activities with him that I could never offer him at home. He goes full time and loves every day, we never have any tears. Due to them I don't need to feel bad leaving him for 5 days. P.S the fresh food every day is a big bonus too.

I was unsure about putting my son in nursery at such a young age, but it was the only option I had as I had to return to work. All the staff I have dealt with have really helped make it an easy and comfortable experience for both of us. It is so reassuring to see how happy he is when he gets there and how comfortable he is with his key carers. I feel I am kept up to date with his daily activities and I think it is fantastic we get opportunities to stay and play and see them with their friends. I would highly recommend this nursery.

All of the staff have been both friendly and kind to me and my son while he has recently settled in. They have made the transition back to work and childcare much easier than I thought it would be. They are observant and professional in spotting changes in health, behaviors and routines. They have given my son experiences and care that have enriched his life, rather than imply looking after him while I'm at work. The food is great, the environment is great - I can't fault any of it. I've already recommended them to other mums I know!

This is by far the best nursery in Tamworth. My little boy is so happy there and loves the staff as much as he loves his family.
He goes twice a week, and took him about a month to settle in properly.
He has developed into a very confident, independent child, and that is down to the nursery.
