Little People Stanningley is located in a secluded Edwardian Manor house, refurbished to provide babies and children with nursery care and education in a warm, home from home environment where they can flourish and reach their full potential.
There are three rooms at the nursery where children are separated according to age and developmental stages. This means that staff can meet individual needs as best as possible. Children are further supported through the activities provided at the nursery which follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to ensure children reach their full social, physical and academic potential.
Little People Stanningley has a wonderful outdoor space which offers separate areas depending on the age of the children. This means that the whole nursery can enjoy the outdoors at the same time, as each age and developmental group has access to resources and equipment most suited to their needs.
Children at the nursery are cared for by mature, qualified staff who are supported by an experienced management team.

b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.479 for Little People Stanningley is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.479
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:
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.
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.
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 1.9 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little People Stanningley is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750
Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.300 , then divided by 2 = 0.150

I have two daughters at Little People nursery in Stanningley. They are little chatterboxes so I can say with great certainty that they enjoy themselves and the numerous activities that nursery does. Even over winter, when opportunities to go out lessen, the nursery have kept the girls busy and stimulated with baking, arts and craft, singing and dancing and special themed days etc. In January, they moved to the schoolroom and they are making great progress already. Pyjama drama comes in regularly which the girls love and it's helping one of my girls overcome her shyness. The outdoor play area is fantastic with a lovely mixture of activities; a bike area, climbing frame, swings and slide, wendy house, picnic area and wooded garden with chickens. I feel happy that my daughters are in safe hands and enjoying themselves. They love going to nursery and talk about their keyworkers and friends with equal enthusiasm.

I have two daughters at Little People Stanningley and couldn't recommend it enough. They have both come on leaps and bounds being at nursery, growing in confidence, making friends and learning new things in a fun environment. My eldest has health concerns which the nursery have been incredibly supportive of, adapting the nursery to ensure she is included and can join in just like the other children but also making sure she is not at risk. It's a good sign when they ask to go to nursery on their day off, so we love that the community room does offer extra activities for local families too.

My son has attended this nursery since Nov 2016, he previously attended a different nursery so we were a little nervous about moving him, we soon realised it was the best decision we could have made.
He settled quickly and loves the staff, often talking about them at home. He has a great bond with his key worker and often throws his arms in the air shouting 'yay nursery' when we go down the drive. Staff from each room including the managers know each child by name and welcome them with a smile
The managers at this setting are very knowledgeable and work hard to make you feel at ease and supported.
Our son's development has come on so much in the time he has attended this setting. We feel there is a wide range of learning opportunities, we see this on tapestry or hear on a daily basis from his key person.
Our son has some health problems to do with his breathing, we feel confident leaving him with the staff and know he is well monitored and his needs are taken seriously.

My child's key worker is excellent and I couldn't trust anyone more with his/her care. Time spent outdoors is great and there is usually a good range of activities. The nursery is always working hard to improve their range of activities, some really imaginative tasks are offered. I think it's excellent that foreign language work is going on, my child came back with a badge for French several times! The decor is a little dated and the building is older but the place has a lot of heart and soul.
