Reviews

7.2 Pitter Patter Ltd has a Review Score of 7.2 (7.187)

The Review Score of 7.2 (maximum of 10) for Pitter Patter Ltd 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pitter Patter Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 11 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 4.912 for Pitter Patter Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (186 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.912

  • 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 2.275 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pitter Patter Ltd is based on 11 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.550 , then divided by 2 = 0.275

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

All of the staff at Pitter Patter are lovely and have been fantastic with our daughter. They have encouraged her to interact with other children and to get involved with all activities. Our daughter has been attending Pitter Patter for a year now, since she was one. She was reluctant to let me go when I dropped her off but with the patience and care of Pitter Patter staff, she now runs into her room in the morning and is really excited. She has developed so much and has definitely benefitted from being at Pitter Patter Day Nursery.

I have 2 children currently attending Pitter Patter, my 4 years old is starting school in September after 3 and a half years at the nursery and my 18 month old will be with them for a few more years yet.

During my eldest's time at Pitter Patter they girls at the nursery have helped him develop into a caring, well mannered and confident little boy. His reading and writing are coming along brilliantly and we genuinely feel like he's prepared for school this September. He's worked his way through all of the rooms at Pitter Patter and has always enjoyed attending.

My youngest is getting ready to move to the little toddler room in August and we're so pleased with his progress. We never considered any other nurseries for him because we saw first hand with his brother how great the staff are, the variety of activities they organise, how good the menu is and how they nursery is always clean and welcoming.

I can't recommend this nursery highly enough - they tick every box.

I reviewed Pitter Patter after an awful experience locally. They were kind and supportive throughout my daughters time there, she has been nothing but happy and I work soundly knowing she is safe and looked after. My daughter loves the staff and is excited to see them. They helped with weaning, her speech and now potty training. I would and have recommended the nursery to other parents. Its safe, my daughters development through their activities is fantastic and there is great communication. Happy parent.

I pick the child I care for up from nursery once a week. I find all the girls that work in the little toddlers department very helpful and very informative regarding her activities that day. One of the team members is especially helpful. The child I care for has come on leaps and bounds since starting here. She is more confident and is always happy to go into the nursery class. She loves seeing all the other children and is always happy when I go to collect her. The nursery seems a happy and clean environment for all the children to play and eat their meals.

I think my son has come on so much since beginning nursery. His speech and development has improved greatly. He can be very shy sometimes but seems to like the staff very much.

Both my girls attend Pitter Patter and have done since they were 5 months old. They are so caring. Both my girls formed a lovely relationship with their key workers and the other carers in their room. Each room is tailored to their particular needs for their stage of development. Both my girls love going to nursery and have been emotionally supported and stretched with their key skills with varied and engaging activities. The outdoor spaces are differentiated for different developmental stages - this is excellent. I'm so happy with my choice of nursery a very happy secure environment with great food! A must for my girls. Thank you.

I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone. When my son started he was 8 months old and the staff made the transition so much easier.
From the initial visit, we were very impressed with the nursery and staff. We feel that our son picked this nursery himself as it was the first place we visited where he was very relaxed!
The staff took the settling in sessions at our pace so we felt totally confident when the time came to leave him.
He has been at Pitter Patter now for 4 months, he is developing brilliantly and clearly loves attending.

My two year old has recently started big toddlers. He has settled in very well. Pitter Patter nursery is a loving and well structured environment. He wakes up each morning asking for 'school' and is disappointed when he is not going. Excellent job by all the carers. Thank you.

My son has been at Pitter Patter for the last 3 1/2 years and has absolutely loved each of the rooms he's been in. The staff are wonderful and provide a very personalised service, taking into account any special requirements and extending learning (Big Toddlers and Pre-school) as and when appropriate. The staff in each room seem to know the names of every child at the nursery which I think is testament to the amount of care and effort that is put into ensuring each child is cared for in the best possible way. The nursery were brilliant at helping wean my oldest son and I'm happy that my youngest (starting in a few week's time) will be given the same care and attention and receive the best, freshly prepared food from their kitchen. The nursery is constantly improving and the parents are kept well informed regarding new developments. There are gardens for each age group and there are lots of fun outdoor activities for the children, including an outdoor classroom and bug garden. Safety is taken very seriously including access to the facility and safety of the children on local outings. I couldn't have asked for a better place for my children to learn and grow.
