5.2 Lilliput Day Nursery has a Review Score of 5.2 (5.173)

The Review Score of 5.2 (maximum of 10) for Lilliput Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lilliput Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 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 3.472 for Lilliput Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (6 Poors x 2) + (6 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 3.472

  • 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 1.701 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lilliput Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.152 , then divided by 2 = 0.076

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

Reviewer Connection to Lilliput Day Nursery

If you want to know that your child is happy and safe at nursery do not send your child here. The amount of issues we have had is awful. Staff clearly do not watch the children as they should do as every time we pick my nephew up we have to sign an accident form with a new reason of why the child has been injured. Majority of the "accidents" was in fact incidents where another child has done something to my nephew. I completely understand accidents happen but 3 incidents have happened the past 3 times my nephew attended the nursery!! Shocking how they deal with these issues also!!

DELLA SMITH, Manager at Lilliput Day Nursery responded to this review on 18 Jan 2018:

This concern has been dealt with following the nurseries policies and procedures.

Amazing care is being received for my two children who are both in this setting. Both toddler and baby rooms work exceptionally well in providing my children with the best experiences a parent could wish for their child to have. Friendly and welcoming staff at all times on dropping off and picking up.
I cannot wait for them both to reach the pre-school room where I know again they will receive great care. Thank you to all staff for all of the hard work they put in each and every week, my children come home with beaming smiles on their faces all the time. I highly recommend Lilliput Day Nursery.

My little girl was hard to start on nursery but the staff has been absolutely wonderful. We have worked out a solution that is brilliant for all of us, especially my daughter. She is now eager and happy to go, enjoys her time and chats away about all the fun she has.
I love the idea of home cooked meals and again my girl also always describes them as delicious. All in all it is a great place for a child, flexible deals, support and wonderful care. Thumbs up all the way.
