The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Little Acorns Private Day Nursery, Atherton 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 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Acorns Private Day Nursery, Atherton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.909 for Little Acorns Private Day Nursery, Atherton is calculated as follows: ( (371 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 408 Ratings = 4.909

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Acorns Private Day Nursery, Atherton is based on 17 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target Reached = 1

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

This is a very good nursery, I believe the best in the area. The staff are engaging and offer lots of encouragement to the children. My son enjoys going to nursery and the various methods in which they learn through play. The food always smells delicious and the nursery cook is also friendly and I've been told by my son that the food is yummy. My son enjoys spending time outside in the fantastic garden space and I feel it is good that they offer French and Swimming as extra activities.

Most of the staff I have encountered are easy to speak with and discipline and offer praise to children fairly. I do feel that more training could be given to staff to encourage different ways of bringing up what they feel are issues or problems. All the rooms in the nursery seem clean and tidy and up to date with age appropriate materials. I feel that my son is safe when left in nursery and I am happy to recommend this nursery to others.

Outstanding nursery, my little boy has been visiting Little Acorns for 2 years now. He is very happy, the staff are very friendly, supportive and encouraging to the children. There always a lovely safe atmosphere. The children are continuously learning through play and stimulated through different themes each month. I couldn't be happier.

All staff are friendly and communicative, and our daughter has established some very strong bonds with her keyworker. Food on offer is superb, is adapted to incorporate dietary requirements (and without making the switch obvious). The offer of copy recipes is always welcome as we can see what's going into everything. Outdoor children's space is brilliant - our little girl loves playing out in the garden. Car parking space can often be very limited in the evening. Overall we're very happy with our decision to place our little girl here!

I have never had any issues with my child at this nursery. He has been attending for almost 18 months and he loves it. The staff have bonded really well with him and care about his education and welfare. My son is thriving at nursery and enjoys playing with staff and other children. I'm so glad we decided on this nursery for our child and would recommend it to anyone.

As soon as we visited Little Acorns Private Day Nursery me and my husband felt extremely welcomed and comforted. Our 15month old loves going to nursery and have come on so much since starting. The improvements in her social skills, speech, communication and motor abilities are amazing. The staff are really friendly and know your child inside out- they clearly spend a lot of time getting to know them and their individual needs. We made the right decision choosing Little Acorns Private Day Nursery.

My daughter started at Little Acorns when she was 9 months old, she is now turning 3. She loves going to nursery and it is a struggle to get her to leave at night. She always has lots to tell us, about what she has done with her day and often asks to go to nursery on her days off. She has a great relationship with the staff and they have made transitions from room to room easy.
There is always lots of exciting things going on based on the children's interests.
I would definitely recommend Little Acorns.

My 8-month-old daughter has recently started in the upper baby room three weeks ago doing one day a week. She has already been involved in so many fun and exciting activities such as jelly play, painting and baking. She has been outside each day exploring the natural outdoor area too which I believe she has really enjoyed. The feedback from her key person each evening has been great and I have already received detailed paperwork on how she's settled in and where she is up to with her development.
The menus are fantastic and my daughter has really enjoyed all the healthy and nutritious food that she's had so far.
Thank you to all the staff and management on helping settle her into nursery, it's made going back to work a lot easier.

My granddaughter moved to Little Acorns recently. We were all really worried about her settling in a new nursery, we didn't need to! Right from the beginning when we went to look round we were reassured by the manager that they would give her the support needed and help her settle in and they did. My granddaughter has been at the nursery now for several months and has settled well and really blossomed under their care, nothing is too much trouble and she always has lots of things to bring home and tell me about, she loves the staff and tells me all about them and what they have been doing when I collect her. The food is amazing and I often wish that I could stay for lunch too! Thank you to all of you for taking such good care of her.

Overall the nursery has excellent facilities and a true feel of focussing on children's development. The menus are exciting and change often to encourage a variety of tasting new foods, they are also willing to share the recipes so you can enjoy the meals at home. Ages are separated into rooms and all rooms are up to date with age appropriate learning tools. Discipline methods are appropriate and agreeable to most. The outdoor facilities are excellent with lots to do especially focussing on nature. Most staff are informative and willing to help with professional answers, there could be an investment of training in how to approach and discuss points with parents. Especially positioning poor behaviour of a child from that day, however, overall a positive experience with the staff. Safe entry to the nursery is good but could be better. I would absolutely recommend Little Acorns to any prospective parent. My little one's development and learnings have been impressive.

Both of our children attend Little Acorns, the staff were very supportive when it came to my return to work and I quickly formed a great trust and& respect in the staff who are highly knowledgeable and experienced in childcare. Both of our children love the nursery and they are always having fun and learning new things. We have seen great developmental advances in both of our children since they have been here, which is encouraged by staff. Their emphasis on key values and building character in these early years perfectly compliments our home value system. My little boy often says that the food is 'yummy yummy' and after looking at the menu I can see why he thinks that! We highly recommend Little Acorns nursery and wouldn't choose anywhere else. Thank you so much for looking after and caring for our babies!

My son has been with Little Acorns since 2013 and he has progressed so well over the years. He is in nursery full time so spends 5 days a week there and the care and attention given to him by all staff is very good.
If there has been any issues these have been resolved super fast by the management team who are more than happy to help.
Overall I have been very happy with the nursery and would highly recommend.

Little Acorns nursery provides a lovely atmosphere from entering the building to leaving.

Staff are always very helpful and very aware of my child's day as well as their needs. I find them very informative when I collect her, they have been extremely helpful and reassuring when settling my very clingy baby and have been amazing with ensuring that her food allergy is addressed. I find the staff and children to always be happy and pleasant and very approachable. My now 8 year old loved the nursery as does my 15-month-old. I would highly recommend this nursery to all friends and have done on a regular basis.

I love how the children participate in regular outdoor play, learn about other faiths and festivals, get involved in regular messy play, singing, dancing etc. Overall, I cannot find fault in the nursery.

Little Acorns has provided wonderful care for both of my children over the past 5 years. They take the time to speak to parents and find everything out about the children in order to make smooth transitions. Nothing is too much trouble and the policies and procedures are clear and always followed.

I started my daughter at Little Acorns after being dis-satisfied with her first nursery. My daughter had been unhappy at her first setting, but settled in very well and was given individual attention. We became aware that our daughter had a medical condition which contributed to her delayed mobility and other issues. The staff were extremely supportive and did extra exercises to help build her muscles. I must say the nursery is not local to me and 1.5 hour per day well worth it. The staff provision and management are exceptional.

My daughter is currently in the baby room and absolutely loves coming to nursery, smiling at me as I leave! She always comes home with paint between her toes after doing lots of fun creative activities as well as exploring so many other different sensory activities throughout the day! The baby room staff are just fantastic and couldn't be more accommodating to her needs and are always telling me and my partner what a pleasure she is to look after just makes our working lives so much easier just knowing how happy she is at nursery, and how comfortable she feels with the staff in the baby room!

My Son has only attended Nursery for a short while yet my opinion of Little Acorns so far is fantastic. The Nursery has a lovely safe, calm atmosphere, staff are friendly and approachable, the menu's are excellent and the Nurseries focus on learning and development is second to none. I have no worries leaving my son in their capable hands and he is only too happy to stay!!

Having visited several Nurseries before settling on Little Acorns, I have to say the place beat the rest hands down on all counts!

My son is in the baby room he's only been at Little Acorns for for 2 months and he loves it. The staff are fantastic caring and show excellent knowledge. The settling in sessions are all done to the child and parents needs. The nursery is well managed and the standards are exceedingly high. Information is shared and already my son's development file is full of little milestones. The food looks fabulous and very healthy which is good as a working parent to know my child is getting all the nutrition he needs to help him to develop in to a healthy little boy. An outstanding nursery!

Tracy Telfer, Nursery Manager at Little Acorns Private Day Nursery, Atherton responded to this review on 13 Nov 2015:

We are happy that you daughter loves attending our nursery, it is nice that she would like to stay longer but are glad we have rectified problems you have had getting her to leave.

One of my children has been through this nursery and is now in school. The educational element provided by the care at nursery gave her a headstart in school. My son is currently in nursery. For both of them the care they have received has at all times been exemplary. The children are showered with love and attention. They are taught politeness, respect and good manners. They are encouraged to care for themselves, such as at dinner times to teach them independence, but are helped and supported when required. The facilities in the rooms and the large outside play area are of a very high standard. All necessary protocols e.g safeguarding, are well established. The place is very well managed and parents are kept informed on their child's development regularly. This is an outstanding nursery.

My son has been attending Little Acorns for five months and recently joined upper babies. he has problems with his joints and movements and the staff have spent 1-2-1 time with him helping his development. The food at Little Acorns is fantastic and there is nothing that he hasn't tried but he loves all the food. The staff are helping him use a spoon and at thirteen months this is brilliant. My son is very happy and content at Little Acorns and I can't recommend them enough.

I would recommend Little Acorns nursery to family members and friends My son has received a fantastic level of care since he started and his learning and development journey is on track due to the amazing work from all the staff. The nursery environment is extremely welcoming, all the staff are very friendly and helpful and are always available for help and advice.

My son really enjoys mealtimes, the menu has such a wide choice which is enabling him to try new foods he might not necessarily try at home.

The outside play area is excellent with plenty of facilities for the children to explore and enjoy.

Little Acorns Day Nursery is an absolutely fantastic learning environment. Our daughter has been there since she was 5 months old and the learning and development support she receives is impeccable! She is well looked after in a caring and nurturing environment where safety of both staff and children is paramount. The outstanding calibre of staff has enabled her to build relationships and feel safe and happy to be left. She is always full of smiles on arrival. The food she receives is second to none; home-cooked, nutritious and by far her favourite part of the day!

As first time parents and educationalists ourselves, we were sceptical of sending our baby to a nursery but from her very first settling in visit to now; 5 months on, we could not be any happier with Little Acorns. The talented team deserve such recognition. I believe Little Acorns is the best nursery in the area and I often recommend it to fellow parents looking for outstanding provision.

I am very happy with the care my little boy gets at nursery, due to him having complex needs, he does require additional help and support. All the staff do their best to help him and are helping him with his development. The nursery is very clean and tidy and the outdoor area for the children is lovely and safe. The nursery cook provides great meals each day and this is also helping my little boy in putting weight on too (which he needs). I would recommend Little Acorns to anyone as I am very happy with how my little boy is developing and being looked after.

I send both my girls to Little Acorns, and couldn't be happier with the service and care that they provide. They have worked really hard with my eldest to get her over her phobia of eating new things. They have also paid attention to how my youngest daughter is developing physically and put things out especially for her to help extend that development. As well as this they put toys out that they know she has an interest in. The menu choices are excellent too.
