The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Little Manor Private Day Nursery, Runcorn 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Manor Private Day Nursery, Runcorn in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.87 for Little Manor Private Day Nursery, Runcorn is calculated as follows: ( (242 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 276 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Manor Private Day Nursery, Runcorn is based on 7 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.625

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

I love Little Manor. My son went to Little Manor in the pre-school room and he really enjoyed it. He came out of his shell and learnt so much. The Manager and key worker always looked after him like he was one of their own. He still wants to come back and visit now. My daughter will be starting in September and I wouldn't have chosen any other nursery for her to go. It's a lovely, friendly atmosphere and the staff are amazing.

I'm so glad I chose Little Manor. The staff and manager are fantastic and can be approached about anything- they have been extremely supportive through some different issues. My child has come on leaps and bounds since starting here and he loves it.
I have already recommended Little Manor to someone, who had taken a place and also loves it.

Lots of activities going on from reading to cooking. I love the way they arrange events such as visits from the fire brigade. We especially love the fact that the children get lots of fresh air and time to play outside. It is amazing how they manage to get my son to eat so many different foods.

My daughter is in the baby room and develops new skills every day. She can't wait to get into the car to come to the nursery to see everyone. The staff are fantastic and my daughter's keyworker is great with her. Nothing is too much trouble. I love seeing the Facebook updates of what the kids are up to. Communication is great.

Our son has settled into nursery better than we ever imagined. I believe that is thanks to the wonderful staff. Since attending Little Manor our son has really come on such a long way. He found his feet, his voice and had made lots of friends. Going back to work full time has been easier than I thought as I know he is in good hands. The quality and the amount of food is impressive and we have enjoyed getting involved recently with the winter pack #soupselfie. We are very impressed and would highly recommend this nursery.

I moved my son from another nursery to Little Manor after he was unable to settle in one close to home. On visiting the nursery I knew that it was right for him. All staff were welcoming and shown a real interest in my son. He has been at the nursery now since he was 1, he is now 2 1/2. In that time I have seen him develop into a confident, polite little boy. All staff are aware of his needs and they assist him to grow and develop. Compared to the nursery he attended prior to here, I have no doubts about his care or happiness. I know that he receives the same standard of care as he would at home and that is all I care about.

I love my son's nursery. They are very much about the well-being of the children and their development. I feel my son gets individual care, just perfect for him and at the same time he is incorporated into the whole class. The food is very good and kids like to eat it. I like the fact that it is healthy and my son can eat a vast variety of food.

Lovely, caring and friendly staff, everyone who has worked with my little boy have helped him to settle in and made a real effort to get to know him as well as us as a family. I have asked and been given some excellent advice from his key workers and from the manager when I first moved my child into the nursery from a child-minder.

My daughter has attended Little Manor for 4 years from being a baby until she went to school. She still talks about nursery all the time and the amazing staff. Her experiences at nursery have helped her grow into a very confident young lady. Thanks Little Manor.
