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 4.922 for Little Impressions Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.922

  • 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 Impressions Day Nursery is based on 15 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 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 8.2 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.

My daughter has attended this nursery for over a year now and absolutely loves it. Staff are highly qualified, friendly and very supportive. I have no issues whatsoever leaving my daughter in their care, she is constantly learning new things and talks about the nursery, the staff and her friends all the time at home. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
Thank you to such a wonderful team for taking such good care of my little girl.

My niece attended this nursery and she loved it, she left in September and still asks if she can go back to play! All the staff are great and the children learn so much each day. I can’t wait for my other niece to start and enjoy exploring.

My little girl has been going to Little Impressions since September 2016 and she absolutely loves it! All of the staff have very good relationships with each child making me feel very comfortable leaving my child in their care. They are also extremely good at responding to the child and family's personal needs. I couldn't recommend them enough!

My daughter has attended this nursery since September 2016 and I would not change it. The staff are brilliant with the children and know each and every child's personalities. At times I have struggled as a parent having someone else look after my daughter but the staff were very understanding and reassuring. They have taken the time out to understand personal circumstances of the family and are amazing whenever I need to make a change to my daughters days.
Very supportive, understanding and are brilliant with my daughter.

My niece has attended the setting for 2 years now and is a confident and happy girl. She is always talking about the staff and the nursery. Learning wise, she is exceeding where she should be development wise and is learning how to build fires, make bird feeders and all sorts of Forest School activities. The variety of activities in the nursery throughout all ages are fun and creative. There is lots of messy play, phonics and maths. We are all really pleased with the care and learning that is provided by Little Impressions, a big thumbs up from us.

My son has recently started here and has settled so well. The baby room staff are very reassuring and as a first time Mummy I found it hard to leave him for the first time, but they have put my mind at rest and can call anytime of the day as much as I like without feeling that I am annoying them.

I have had lots of pictures posted on my Tapestry account to see that he is happy and absolutely fine. I find the staff are very friendly and have made us feel welcome from the show around to starting, fantastic communication. Activities are varied and there is always lots of sensory and messy play going on daily. Very happy with the setting and would definitely recommend.

Couldn’t be happier with the nursery. My daughter loves going every week and all the staff go above and beyond for the children. They’re all helpful and do amazing work. My daughter has come out of her shell so much since starting.

Little Impressions staff are friendly and well qualified. They have been working with my son since he was nine months old and he has come on leaps and bounds. He is two now and loves going every day. He has recently started forest school which is an excellent opportunity for him. The routines suit our lifestyle and they work closely with everyone, giving regular online reviews of his progress through an app called Tapastry. We are so happy with our choice of nursery and recommend it for any child.
