  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ladybirds Private Day Nursery, Methley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.711 for Ladybirds Private Day Nursery, Methley is calculated as follows: ( (148 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.711

  • 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 4.566 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ladybirds Private Day Nursery, Methley is based on 6 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.566

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

After 3 years at home with me, my children started nursery. We were all apprehensive and anxious about such a huge change. We needn't of worried. The staff are wonderful, approachable and so friendly. They provide fantastic learning experiences and give feedback every day. Ladybirds provide a healthy and varied menu which my children thoroughly enjoy. Staff are sympathetic to the needs of my children each morning as they still have separation anxiety, however, this is now short-lived. My children tell me of the care and attention they receive each day. I am so impressed by all aspects of Ladybirds. My children are very lucky.

I have recently enrolled my son at Ladybirds, he has settled in very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Being a working parent, my son also attends pre-school and it is extremely hard to find childcare which provides a wrap around service. Ladybirds provide this, which I am extremely thankful for.
The setting is very nice and my son looks forward to attending nursery.
Thanks Ladybirds!

We have only had extremely positive experiences with Ladybirds Private Day Nursery, Methley. The keyworker consistently goes above and beyond what is necessary to ensure both my son and ourselves feel happy and supported. I feel 100% safe in the knowledge that my son is being well looked after. I think he has come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery. I am so grateful to the keyworker and the staff for making this such an enjoyable experience for the whole family.

When it came to the point I would have to start sending our son to nursery, we were really worried about how he would settle in and how he would be looked after, after hearing so many horror stories about other nurseries. After looking around, we instantly felt it was the right place for him to go and have never looked back.

Every single member of staff we have spoken to has been so friendly and offered advice where needed. It is clear to see they know what they are talking about and have a lot of passion in their work.

Our son has so much fun at nursery, he eats like a king and is learning so much. Thank you!

My son only just started in February 2017 so my experience is very small but so far so good. The staff is very friendly and caring. The place is very colourful and warm. My son settled very quick and he is always happy at the end of the day.

Ladybirds Nursery is a lovely set up. The majority of staff have been there since I first sent my son to Ladybirds in 2009. The rooms and outdoor area are set out lovely. Any problems or concerns I have has have always been dealt with immediately and always satisfactory. I would highly recommend Ladybirds as a warm, caring nursery with lovely staff.

Our children love coming to nursery so much so sometimes they don't want to come home and that is the best things about it. The wrap around care with the local school is brilliant but I think the fact that each child is known by every member of staff is fantastic and they know they can ask anyone for help. The outside space is great and was part of the reason we chose Ladybirds. The children love playing in all weathers.

My son loves going to nursery. He has developed friendships with many of the other children and I fully believe that it is the staff at Ladybirds that help these friendships to grow and develop. My son's social skills are fantastic, again I believe the staff work hard to bond with the children, understand them and then support them. I can ask my son at the end of each day what he's been doing and I can tell he's been learning all day long.

Both of my daughters have attended Ladybirds and we've always been very happy with the care they have received. It's very hard to send off your baby to be cared for by someone relatively unknown but the staff, always helped greatly with this. We get daily updates on what they do and what they eat and it always sounds delicious or fun. The staff form great relationships with the children and I've been impressed with how they include us as parents and the wider family too.

Love this nursery. My daughter thoroughly enjoys going. All of the staff are really helpful, informative and great with all of the children. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds.
The activities are educational and varied. I sometimes wonder how you manage to cram so much into one day!
Thank you to all of the staff, you have made my daughter very welcome, settled and comfortable.

Our daughter has attended Ladybirds since she was 11 months old and she absolutely loves it! The staff are fantastic and so friendly, our daughter regularly talks about them all outside of nursery time. She's now 2-1/2 and has really come on leaps and bounds and I know Ladybirds is part of the positive influences around her. I think we will all be very sad when it's time to start school!
Keep up the great work everyone.

My son has been going to Ladybirds for one day a week for a year now since he was 18 months old. He absolutely loves it. He doesn't have to go to nursery as he has grandparents that could look after him but his friends attend and their mums told me how good it was. It has been great for his development socially, educationally and widening his diet.

My son has numerous allergies and they have managed these very well. I have friends where their child is given bread and butter while other children enjoy a wholesome meal. My son never receives an inadequate alternative because they simply all eat the same. The room he is in is allergen free all day so he doesn't feel excluded or different.

They play out as much as possible in the big gardens and he sleeps as well at nursery as he does at home. The staff are all lovely, kind and gentle and you can see they genuinely care for each child. If they have the smallest of query, they call you so i feel they're keen on consistency which is important for children. You also receive a daily sheet telling you what they've eaten, toilet matters, when they slept and what they've done. They have lots of toys and themed areas indoors. My son is a fussy eater but he enjoys all the food at nursery. Having the cameras to log onto to watch your child is great and a big comfort especially in the early days.

I feel extremely happy with the nursery and i'm confident he is getting the very best care with lots of cuddles. I travel a 12 mile round trip in the wrong direction to work when there are ones much closer because I like the nursery so much. My second child is starting the nursery on September 2016.

Ladybirds is a fabulous place for children to develop a wide variety of skills! The staff are always kind and helpful going above and beyond the norm ensuring the very best care for the children and brilliant support and security for their parents.
You are always met with a smile at the door. Communication is very good, handover notes are given at the end of the day which ensures you never miss anything. My son loves his nursery worker and it's easy to see why, far more exciting than being at home.
I would highly recommend this nursery to my friends.

We've used this nursery since May 2014. It's a great local nursery who try hard to make the kids feel at ease and parents going there. For example, yesterday my 2.5 year old learnt the recovery position and how to call 999 when in danger. This nursery do lots of fun seasonal activities all year round. Lots for the community and local charities and make us feel like part of the family.

Ladybirds is a fantastic nursery, my son has really developed his skills since starting in July. He is very well looked after when he is there and loves eating all new and different foods each week. We love to take home his progress book and I especially like the idea of the webcam.
