Reviews

8 Little Wiggles At Upton has a Review Score of 8 (7.950)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Little Wiggles At Upton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Wiggles At Upton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.5 for Little Wiggles At Upton is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 3.45 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Wiggles At Upton is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.200

  • 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 Little Wiggles At Upton

  • Mother of Child

Both of my children have attended Little Wiggles and my youngest is still there! It is a fantastic, open plan, engaging environment which offers the children plenty of opportunities.

The staff are friendly and approachable and are never too busy to talk or let you know what your child has been up to during the day.

Having two very different children, I have been very pleased with the way the children are treated as individuals and individual targets and aims are set for the month/term.

From the first time I looked around Little Wiggles, I have loved the people, the ethos and the environment!

Many thanks for your kind words Lorna.

My son went to Little Wiggles for 1 year before starting school and then for breakfast and some after-school sessions and absolutely loved it there.
The only reason he is not currently going is due to my maternity leave.

The team are really approachable and show a genuine interest in the children and care about them.

I would highly recommend.
