Reviews

9.5 Little Acorns Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.527)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Little Acorns Nursery 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Acorns Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 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 4.854 for Little Acorns Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.854

  • 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 4.673 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Acorns Nursery is based on 7 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.673

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

My wife and I are very pleased with Little Acorns. Both our children have been going there since they were about 1. There is such a friendly feel about the place. All of the staff seem so kind and caring and our children love it there. Both children are exposed to a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities that seem both fun and purposeful. I cannot recommend it enough.

We are thankful to little acorns' staff for helping in settling in my son when he started last autumn. Everyone there is very supportive and caring. The nursery keeps us informed at all times if anything happens to our little one and most importantly, our son enjoys being there!

Little Acorns nursery is exceptional. Our daughter started in the toddler room October 2016 and we have observed an amazing change in her. She is more confident, outgoing and loves to try new things. Every day out daughter is given a warm welcome and is acknowledged by all staff within the setting even the chef!! Our daughter is given the opportunity to explore new and exciting activities and has lots of outdoor play which she loves. We actually moved our daughter from another nursery in the area and it was the best thing we ever did, whilst I am at work I do not worry about our daughter as I am confident and happy with the care which is being delivered.

Little Acorns is a lovely nursery with great facilities and a lovely outside garden. But best of all are the carers who are dedicated, nurturing and friendly. Not to forget the chef's excellent cooking skills and the housekeeper's excellent attentiveness to keep the place neat and tidy. This nursery has a family feel to it and although pricey, definitely worth the money. Keep up the excellent work!

My daughter started at Little Acorns aged 10 months and has been there for almost 5 months. Since starting nursery she has become so confident and is learning new skills on a daily basis. The staff are so kind and caring and my daughter absolutely adores seeing them when we arrive in the morning. As a parent, I feel as though I am kept informed and updated and I can see that the nursery is a fantastic environment in which children feel safe, secure and happy.

Choosing a nursery is a tough decision and I am so happy we went for Little Acorns. Both my daughters go to Little Acorns and the oldest has been there for 2.5 years now. It's not a large nursery and the children are known to all the staff members, even when I have randomly called in, the staff in charge are able to tell me immediately how the girls have been that day. I know my children are cared for and loved there. My girls have really come along, they are both confident and chatty.

The sickness policy is good and the staff are very reasonable when calling you and are happy to give analgesia.

The nursery has started using tapestry for some time, which is great, it's so lovely to see what the kids have been up to while you are at work. A bonus is that they supply the nappies/creams/Calpol themselves. And they are always open except bank holidays. They are even open on Good Friday!
