Reviews

8.3 Ladybirds Educational Nursery has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.271)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Ladybirds Educational Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ladybirds Educational Nursery 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 4.758 for Ladybirds Educational Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (104 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.758

  • 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 3.513 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ladybirds Educational Nursery 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.263

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

Ladybirds is an excellent nursery. The girls there are very good at what they do. My two-year-old son came on so much after starting there and he loved going. Initially, my two-year-old went there for free under the government grant but I trust the nursery so much I am now paying for my one-year-old to go.

Both my children have attended Ladybirds Nursery (my daughter from September 2012 - September 2015 and my son who is currently still there from October 2014). They have both been extremely happy there throughout their time at Ladybirds and I couldn't ask for better people to look after the well-being of my children whilst I am at work. The staff at Ladybirds nursery have been a big part of how my children have developed over the last few years and that has been due to the well planned out play activities that are on offer for the children to explore, and the dedication of the staff who pinpoint their key children's interests with which to extend and develop their learning further through play. Staff are friendly and approachable and I am very happy that my children attend this lovely and happy nursery environment.

My older daughter used to attend and her sister is still there developing in leaps. Wonderfully friendly staff, always attentive to any concerns or needs. Very active and easy to contact and communicate with the staff with the addition of a dedicated nursery mobile.

My little boy has been attending this nursery now for nearly 3 years and he absolutely adores the staff! He's so happy and always has tonnes of things to tell about doing during the day. Anytime I have raised any concerns or worries I may have had they have always been dealt with straight away. I really could not recommend this nursery any higher, my little boy has come on leaps and bounds thanks to the efforts of all the staff here.

We are very happy with our child's progress at this nursery.
We are very pleased with the staff. In fact, we would go as far as to say they are exceptional. However, there is no communication with the owners which is a shame. It would be nice if they made their presence felt more often.
