The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for First Footsteps Ltd (Leyland) 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for First Footsteps Ltd (Leyland) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.938 for First Footsteps Ltd (Leyland) is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.938

  • 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 3.985 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for First Footsteps Ltd (Leyland) is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0.235

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

I am almost at the end of my wonderful journey with First Footsteps. I'll be very sad to no longer be part of this lovely nursery. My 3rd child leaves in a couple of weeks as she starts school in September. All 3 of my children have attended First Footsteps over the last 11 and a half years. I have 3 very sociable children with a thirst for learning. The staff here have encouraged them every step of the way. Each child has a key worker and they form strong bonds with the children. I can only describe it as a kind of extended family. My children were left at nursery each day with people who I wholeheartedly trusted and who I knew had the best interests of my children at heart. The skills they have learnt and the friendships they have made will go with them once they leave the nursery. I consider myself very lucky to have found such a wonderful childcare setting and would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for childcare for their children.

Fantastic staff with great knowledge of child psychology, great empathy and patience to deal with children as individual persons who are heard and encouraged to thrive enjoying learning through play. Every month there is a theme to encourage new adventures and experiences and each day is different but with routine, making the children feel safe in new adventures. Thank you for over two years of fun whilst developing my child's personality and preparing him for school, you are all amazing.

My twins have been at this nursery since they were babies, and I am amazed by what they have learned and how they have developed. The staff know, care about and treat them as individuals. They regularly come home with lovely photos, cards and pictures. They get an included sit down dinner and snack, feedback at the end of the day, and organised trips and outings. The manager is incredibly helpful and supportive with all elements of the childcare minefield, and I can't thank and praise the manager and the brilliant staff enough. The twins are leaving this year to start primary school, (and they even get a 'graduation' photo and ceremony!). The rates are very competitive and they are as flexible as they can be to help with individual childcare needs. This nursery has been invaluable, they enjoy and look forward to going, and I am sad that it is time for them to leave.
