The Lighthouse Day Nursery was established in 2001, as part of the work of The Kings Centre in Wigston.

The nursery cares for children from birth up to the age of five-years-old.

As a team, staff work to create an environment full of different and exciting learning opportunities for every child. It supports each child’s drive to explore and investigate.

As a charity, the nursery has no paid directors and therefore benefits from all money being used directly to enhance its provision and care for children. The nursery runs a care for kids scheme which offers a free place for families in need.

The nursery has the use of a light airy hall, a magnificent large all-weather play area which allows children to run and explore and enjoy a variety of large play equipment and bikes.

Its outdoor play area provides a quiet, peaceful area with sensory play and an opportunity to grow plants and flowers.

The Review Score of 6.3 (maximum of 10) for The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.708 for The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 1.563 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125 , then divided by 2 = 0.063

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

The staff at The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School are very friendly and those that look after our daughter have really bonded with her. The nursery is extremely clean and good value for money. The only thing that could be better is the space outside as it is quite small and our daughter does enjoy being outside.

Zoey, Manager at The Lighthouse Nursery & Pre-School responded to this review on 03 Feb 2016:

Thank you for your support and lovely comments. From the Lighthouse Team.

I was really impressed with the appearance of the nursery when I first made my inquiry, and then visited it again with my parents, who were impressed as well. It had been recommended to us by a lady whose two children attend the nursery. I am very pleased with their service, as they have managed to help accommodate my working needs for the weeks. I noticed on my second day that all of the staff knew my son's name and welcomed him into their nursery family!!! I am very pleased with his progress during his time there!
