  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.761 for Little Legs Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (153 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 201 Ratings = 4.761

  • 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 4.938 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Legs Nursery is based on 6 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.938

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

I couldn't function without Little Legs. Not because I need childcare (there's an abundance of childcare out there) but because I know I can leave my children there without any concerns whatsoever. I love the homely environment, the home cooked food, how, quite often, my son will come home and surprised me with something clever he's learnt. With a lack of family around us I sometimes need last minute childcare and 99% of the time they are able to help. The early years of a child's life are so important and I'm so glad I chose Little Legs to play such an important role in it. I will be sad when my children are too old to benefit from their care.

My daughter has been attending Little Legs for about 8 months now.
She loves going to nursery and always comes home enthused at the days' activities.
The staff are fantastic, take time to go through her day, the good and bad and give balanced feedback.
Activities are well thought out and a clear learning plan is followed to prepare her for next stage.
It is our little ones last year there, I wish we had found it sooner!

Little Legs is such a lovely, friendly and welcoming environment for my daughter to grow up in! I was apprehensive (as all parents are) about leaving my daughter in the care of people I don't know, but I was put at ease by the kind nature of staff.

My daughter has been going for two months now and I love it. The staff are always willing to talk about her day no matter how busy they are. It was so important to me to find care-givers willing to give my daughter time and attention, and they do just that. I highly recommend this nursery.

My daughter has attended since 8 months old and is now starting school. I don't believe she would be as clever for her age without the care and education Little Legs have provided for her.

They always accommodate any extra care needed, all are very friendly yet professional.

An excellent job was done over the years and we look forward to her seeing you at the Den and Holiday Club.

Absolutely fantastic nursery. My son (2 years) has flourished in the time he has attended this nursery. The staff are brilliant, so welcoming and lovely.
They have done everything in their power to find plans that suit us and our child's needs. Would highly recommend, thank you to the staff at Little Legs!

My sons have attended Little Legs for a few years now. We did plenty of research before selecting Little Legs and they came out top! We had that feeling of confidence after visiting and meeting the staff that every parent wants. The staff are fantastic and make the most of all of their facilities. My sons enjoy going and are learning loads. Everyone connected with the nursery is willing to go the extra mile and even the parents are happy to see each other.

My son has been attending the nursery for 2 years now and I have always been very happy with the care they provide my son.
The staff are very fair, professional and friendly. The owner puts her whole heart into the nursery. I was very lucky to get plenty of feedback on my son's behaviour and very helpful advice on any issues we have been facing. I am happy to recommend the nursery to all parents in the area.

A fantastic nursery! Welcoming, hard-working staff and a homely environment. A home from home that my son always looks forward to going to. He loves the animals and is a big fan of the food (never leaving a morsel!).

Staff at Little Legs are friendly, nurturing and helpful. My baby started at the nursery aged 7 months and there is nowhere else I would have wanted to care for him.
He is given home cooked meals in a relaxed and comfortable nursery. There are always enough staff to give him plenty of care and attention.

An excellent nursery in which children are cared for to an exceptional standard. My children are well cared for and loved whilst in their care. The nursery isn't afraid to run trips and take the children for walks around the village. The out of school club is excellent and picks up and drops off at the local school which is a must for parents who work.

Overall the nursery is great with happy children and staff.
The staff also offer babysitting which is great if you don't have family around to help and because the children know the staff so well it eases the guilt on the odd occasion you go out.

I moved my little girl to Little Legs after moving to the village when she was two. During her time there she flourished in all aspects and the warm, welcoming environment meant she was always happy to be dropped off in the mornings (which makes for happy parents)! Her recent transition to primary school in September was a smooth one thanks largely to the efforts of the manager and her team.

We have used Little Legs for all my 3 children at some point over the last 4 years and will continue to do so. The team have always catered for our needs with no hassle. The team are all very friendly and on hand for cuddles when the little ones need them. In the nursery there are lots of activities to keep them busy indoor and out. I love all the creative artwork that comes home too.

Little Legs Nursery have looked after both my daughter and son. Both loved going every day. My son's confidence and learning has grown so much since attending Little Legs. He loves all the activities they undertake, story time etc.
I would recommend Little Legs to anyone that asked. The team of girls are all really nice and good with the children. I can't think of any downfalls of this nursery every aspect is excellent!

My daughter loves going to Little Legs each day. Since starting nursery she has developed so much not only with number recognition, letters but reciting various nursery rhymes. It is a friendly homely environment that helps her interact well with children of various ages as well as staff. The opening hours are perfect as not many day care providers open from 7am until 6pm! Very pleased parents :-)
