Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.853 for Little People Private Day Nursery, Burnley is calculated as follows: ( (193 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 225 Ratings = 4.853

  • 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 4.704 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little People Private Day Nursery, Burnley is based on 10 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 14.2 positive Reviews (71 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 14.2 Target = 0.704

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

This nursery is absolutely amazing. They help all the children that attend in many different aspects of learning and will go the extra mile to help a child/ren who are struggling a bit more than others. I will always recommend this nursery as all the staff are always welcoming and helpful and always prioritise the children.

Deciding on your nursery is a very personal process. You have to be truly comfortable and confident with your choice. For myself and my husband, choosing the Little People Private Day Nursery Burnley on Piccadilly Road, was a very easy choice to make.
When we went to visit (without warning as was the suggestion from many fellow mothers when visiting any nursery, we found the staff members attentive, the children happy and the building clean. Security measures were implemented as soon as we entered the building. Before we were allowed into the nursery area itself, this was a huge positive for us. We were given a tour of the facilities and found everything to be how we hoped, open, learning opportunities everywhere and staff on hand when needed.
To this day, I am confident with the choice we made and was glad when I didn’t need to move my children’s nursery through a job change. I couldn’t imagine them going to any other nursery now, they adore all the staff and I’m pretty bowled over by them too.

I had 3 nurseries to decide between and 1 is directly across from where I live. However, I'd chosen Little People’s, Burnley, the reason for that is simple. The staff are excellent, some have been there since my younger brother went, and they still remember him to this day. This is a good example which shows the passion and attentiveness of the staff. My son has come on leaps and loves going to nursery, it may not be the biggest or the fanciest but for me, it’s not that which matters for your child, it’s the staff. The meals are healthy and sound delicious, my son eats nearly everything on offer and if not they will make him something he does like. The staff take time to talk and engage with parents and let them know what their child's day has been filled with, rather than just a simple sign and goodbye. They make you feel welcome and reassured and most of all they make my son happy and content.

I have sent two children to this nursery and I can not praise the staff enough for the care they provide. All of the staff are so approachable, friendly and at all times professional. My daughter is a very shy girl however she thrives at nursery and loves going. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Since my two daughters have started at the nursery they have loved it, made lots of new friends and fitted in perfectly well. As we've just done a big move from our hometown to Burnley, it can be quite daunting but thanks to the staff who are brilliant and extremely friendly. You'll have lots of fun when my little boy starts in September. Brilliant nursery, brilliant staff!

I am very happy to send my little one to this nursery. My daughter enjoys herself and I know she is well looked after and enjoys eating at nursery.
She can be fussy with her food but at nursery, she is known to eat 3 portions of her lunch!
Whenever I need to talk about my daughter to the staff they are always very approachable and happy to help.
My two elder children attended this nursery also - they loved it too.

Little People Private Day Nursery is an amazing nursery, my little girl has been going to this nursery since 2015 and has grown up so much and this nursery has helped her to become her own little person as well as teaching her numbers, letters, colours and she has started talking early. This is not a nursery where kids come to play but is educational as well. My little girl is smart and I have Little People Private Day Nursery to thank for that. Best nursery in my eye.

We love Little People. Our son had previously been at Kiddiwinks and we found he was upset all the time and didn't like going. From the moment her started at Little People he has loved it. His speech has come on loads, he likes the play areas esp playdough and dinosaurs and he misses everybody on his days off.
