The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Giggles Private Day Nursery, Lytham 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Giggles Private Day Nursery, Lytham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.893 for Giggles Private Day Nursery, Lytham is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.893

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Giggles Private Day Nursery, Lytham 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.500

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

My daughter is so happy and settled in the baby room at Giggles. She loves all the activities they do and comes home from every session with pictures or paintings that they have done that morning. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and this makes Giggles have a really family orientated feel about it.

Such a friendly, welcoming place. A home from home for my children. Staff are genuinely happy to be working there and treat the children as their own. The food is all freshly cooked and really tasty. Couldn't find anywhere else I'd rather send my children.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming, they all enjoy their time with the children and obviously put in a great deal of effort to learn about each individual child and develop them as unique individuals. The staff are very creative and constantly change the setting to provide extra stimulation for the children and help them develop their own imaginations.

The management are supportive and welcome ideas promoting constant improvement. My son has settled quickly, he enjoys his time there and his confidence has grown as a result. I would recommend this nursery to everyone!

I would wholeheartedly recommend Giggles Nursery. Both of my children have come through Giggles and we couldn't be happier. My little girl started at around 10 months and is now in the toddler room. The staff are so nurturing and caring and are all very approachable. My little girl jumps up and down with excitement to get inside. The facilities are fantastic, I particularly like the large outside area which has so many fun things to do and is used at every opportunity!

Even though I have a fussy eater, I really like the ethos with regards the food, and the staff and lovely cook are very accommodating to my fussy one. I also love seeing local companies delivering meat etc! It seems as if the company, although Manchester based, are truly committed to the local community, and all suggestions are listened to. I love everything about Giggles but its the staff that really make it stand out as a fantastic nursery.

I find this nursery to be outstanding, the staff are so caring and friendly. They value parents opinions, suggestions and offer so much support to parents and children no matter what the situation.
Since starting here my daughter has progressed at a fantastic rate. Her speech is coming along brilliantly.
They did a fantastic job for Lytham Club Day this year also.
I would highly recommend them.

A warm and friendly nursery. My daughter attends this nursery and is very happy there, she runs up to the front door waiting to be greeted by the great staff. She enjoys every moment whilst she is there.
She has made special bonds with staff and I don't worry about leaving her with them.
I would recommend Giggles Nursery to anyone wanting a safe, happy and loving environment for their child to learn and grow within.

My little boy has been at Giggles since he was 6 months old and is due to leave for school this September. He has developed during his time at Giggles into a confident, happy, imaginative young man with an excellent ability to express himself verbally and interact with his friends and also shows great care towards younger children. The Giggles routine, extra activities (drama and music man) and menu are excellent and he will try any food having been exposed to a wide variety of tastes at nursery. In preschool, he has become "school ready"!
