The Review Score of 9.2 (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 9 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 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.935 for Footsteps Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.935

  • 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 4.298 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Footsteps Nursery & Pre-school is based on 5 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.298

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

Footsteps Lichfield Road has supported both of my children throughout their time at nursery. Both children have loved their time and have felt very supported. All activities are enjoyable and educational. The forest school setting and home cooked food are exceptional.

My little girl loves coming to nursery. The staff are so friendly and I love the stay and plays, and the events they plan for parents to come along too. We attend the Christmas fete every year and it is so festive and lovely. The toys and resources are mainly wooden and look so nice and clean. The forest school and the outdoor area they have is amazing. So pleased with my little girl's progress, and I would highly recommend this nursery.

Both of my children have attended Footsteps and I think it's a fantatsic nursery. My little girl has now been in the baby room for 4 months. I was a little more apprehensive about her starting as she has been exclusively breastfed and refused to take milk from a bottle but she has settled in fantastically. I feel this is all down to the fantastic team, especially her key worker. I think the keyworker idea is great as I feel there is a definite mutual bond between my little girl and hers, something which is so reassuring when leaving her there for the day.
I feel 100% trusting in the care my little girl receives at Footsteps and as a parent, think this is priceless.

We have taken all three of our children to Footsteps and feel it has given them the best start in life. The staff are fantastic and take a real interest in our family as a unit, the retention is brilliant and many have stayed there over the 7 years we have been using the services. There are a number of staff who we have gone as far as to write letters of thanks to and commended their professionalism to the management team, I am pleased to say that many of these have quickly moved into leadership roles within the company.

After enrolling my daughter at Footsteps when she was 10 months old I was slightly concerned that she was too young and I would miss the important things like her trying new foods, crawling, walking etc. She has come on in leaps and bounds in all areas. When I pick her up they tell me everything about her day, along with pictures, they also do 'star moments' which I think is great. She has built relationships with other children and also her key worker and all the other nursery staff. They make you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble! I can also call and check up and they are great very time. I am so glad I chose this nursery for my daughter to attend.

My 18 month old started back in October 2015 and the setting, key workers and all the other staff are amazing. Always friendly and extremely helpful. My sons key worker is so relaxed and I feel like she knows him as much as me. Activities daily are always different. The food is better than some restaurants I've eaten in, and the outdoor area id fabulous and lets toddlers experience adventure.

My son has just moved into pre-school with Footsteps Nursery and his confidence and his attitude has changed completely. He now holds full conversations with you about his day and gets really excited talking about his friends there. The staff all know him and feedback to me and I know that he is safe and in the best care possible. The range of food supplied to him during the day is amazing and the variety has made him keen to try new tastes and textures.

The staff at Footsteps have always been very welcoming and friendly. The transition to nursery was seamless and stress free. My daughter enjoys going to nursery and has built a good relationship with all of the staff. She enjoys all the of the activities that are planned and loves going out to Forest schools.
As a parent I have been very pleased with the professionalism of the setting and how well they keep me informed of my child's development.
