Reviews

9.5 The Little Green Frog Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.482)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for The Little Green Frog Day Nursery 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Little Green Frog Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.879 for The Little Green Frog Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (189 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 215 Ratings = 4.879

  • 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 4.603 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Little Green Frog Day Nursery 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 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.603

  • 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 has been going to nursery for just under a year now and is loving every minute. She wants to go every day. The staff are friendly and do there best to help both children and parents feel happy. I am looking forward to sending my youngest in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.

Superb care for both my children, the eldest of which has just transitioned to primary school. I can not thank the staff enough for their high standards and the support provided over the last 18months.

The environment has fostered such a creative streak in my eldest (not evidenced in the rest of our family!) and helped her become less risk averse through structured activities such as using a hammer and nails and also free play e.g. on the climbing tyres in the garden. She has become much more confident as a result.

My youngest loves the outside and the use of singing and other sensory activities, it is often hard to convince her to come home at the end of the day.

Two very different children with all their needs met and development well supported, has given me the reassurance that as a working Mum, they are thriving more here than they would be if they had been solely in my care. Keep up the good work Little Green Frog!

My niece has been attending The Little Green Frog for six months now and she is so settled and happy. She has strong relationships with staff and children and is always engaged in exciting, stimulating activities.
There is a strong family feel to the nursery, and the setting itself is beautiful - views of the Chevin are breathtaking. The staff are always in high spirits and all have such a kind and caring nature.
Highly recommended.

The Little Green Frog is an excellent nursery. My children have just recently left to start primary school and they didn't want to leave they enjoyed it so much.

There are lots of big open spaces both inside and out with a whole variety of different activities. I loved listening to what my children had done each day as it was always different and exciting.

All of the staff are amazing. They all genuinely care about every child and the interaction between them is excellent. Communication is fantastic. At the end of the day, I received information about what they had done, eaten and any other relevant information. My children loved every member of staff there and miss them very much.

A fantastic nursery which has helped my children in every area of development and I cannot recommend highly enough.

Our daughter started at Little Green Frog in October 2015 and we can honestly say we have been so impressed. She has just started at primary school and we know she was well prepared for this by staff. All the staff are fantastic- they genuinely do care about the children. Our daughter was quite attached to some of the staff and children there and she will miss it!
We found the staff very friendly and approachable and they kept us well informed and up to date. The nursery itself offers lots for little ones to keep occupied and start their learning journey.
We would recommend to anyone!

Our little boy started in August and he loves it, his speech/language has become incredible in the few months since he started. His eating habits and sleeping habits have improved massively. It's lovely to hear him talking about his friends and he thoroughly enjoys all the different activities, especially playing in the lovely outside area. All the staff are wonderful and extremely helpful and the nursery itself is well equipped and a friendly place to be. We would definitely recommend this lovely nursery.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. Our little girl has thrived since attending and loves the nursery workers who give her lots of one to one attention and develop each child's individual personality. I love hearing the stories about her day and how she is being encouraged and education. The ethos of the nursery is about treating every child as the individual they are which they definitely do. The standard is such that even on maternity I have kept our little girl in because of the quality of care she receives.

My son was made to feel most welcome when he started at The Little Green Frog. The transition into the centre is well organised and thoughtful. The staff are warm and friendly and show a genuine passion for his care. I leave him there as I go to work, and I don't worry about him all day as I know he is well loved, and that he is learning and having fun. He has even cried when it was time to leave as he did not want to go!! Additionally, I have been impressed by the security. The front door is manned such that folks cannot get in unless they are let in by a member of staff. Recently another family member went to pick up my son, and the staff member at the front desk would not let him in until she had verified with someone else that he was indeed who he said he was, and that my son knew him. I am very glad to know my son is safe, as well as looked after.

My son has been going to this nursery for 10 months now and we have been impressed from the start. All the staff are brilliant with the kids and have a genuine care for every child, its great hearing all the great things your child has been up to throughout the day they're always doing something different. When my son first started he was a bit behind with his speech and usually preferred his own company but in the short time he's been at LGF his speech has come on leaps and bounds and he's made friends that he looks forward to seeing.
They have recently had chicks hatch and they take trips to the garden centre to see the fish which my son loves! They have the kids play outside a lot as well which is perfect for my little boy they have a great outdoor area were you can also see the animals from the farms.
I would really recommend this nursery the change in my son since starting is amazing and we're looking forward to our youngest son starting in September.

My son loves going to nursery and the staff are all very accommodating when it comes to sleep, food and potty training etc. They follow your child's lead which I love.

Another thing I really like is the fact that they have embraced my sons bilingualism and now know a few words in Swedish themselves.

Keep up the good work!

Both my children love Green Frog. The eldest has fond memories as she thrived from being a baby until school age. The youngest is loving her time there now. The semi-rural setting is beautiful; a great backdrop for the lovely outdoors play area which is used as much as possible. It's also lovely for the children to be able to go for walks in the fields and to the riverside. Being situated next door to a thriving primary school is a bonus as it gives young ones a real taste of what lies ahead. The staff care, a lot and spend quality time getting to know the children. There's a good mix of older and younger members and it's great to have a mix of male and female staff. The different rooms cater well for different ages and needs and there's always lots to do and space for quiet time too. The food is tasty and fresh and a few recipes have even made it home! Green Frog is a very nurturing environment and over the last six years it has raised the bar; actively striving to become an even better childcare provider with children's welfare at the heart of what it does.

Both of my sons joined little green frog this time last year, and will stay there until they start school as we are so pleased with the care they receive. The staff are all so loving and caring, and my children are really happy there. They have had some lovely things going on this year such as incubating eggs and watching them hatch, and watching tadpoles develop into frogs. I highly recommend this nursery and all of the staff.

Having used another nursery in Leeds for our older child I have been able to directly compare LGF against the one we were using. LGF is vastly superior. It feels very well run and the staff appear very engaged and experienced. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

Both my 3 year old daughter and 14 month old son attend Little Green Frog Nursery. They have both built strong relationships with the staff who are very caring. The inside and outside space is set out well with lots of different areas to explore. Recently my daughter went for a walk with the other older children around the surrounding fields where they were able to meet and chat with a sheep farmer, she also found leaves and berries which she made into a picture. My son quite often has trips to the local park to feed the ducks (a very favourite pastime of his). The food is all cooked on site using local produce, which my children seem to love. I would be very happy to recommend this nursery.

My daughter has been attending LGF for over a year, and really enjoys going to the extend she calls it her nursery. She has had the opportunity of growing not just in strength, language skill, knowledge, but also to grow plants from seed. She gets encouraged in all that she does. Gets plenty of chance to play outside when the weather is good to performing in small concerts. They even get encouraged to be part of the local towns carnival (unfortunately my daughter wasn't one of them this year). I would recommend the nursery and speak highly of them.

My son has been attending LGF for over a year. I am completely satisfied with the care he receives. He obviously enjoys himself and he loves the staff who care for him. The meals are varied and he eats well- and was helped to eat until he could manage it himself. Every day I am fully informed about what he's been doing, playing with, eating etc by staff who genuinely care for him and enjoy seeing his development. The supported play is appropriate for his age and is helping his development. He loves playing with the other children inside and outside and loves it when they go to other places- walks in the countryside or to the park.

My daughter attended this nursery for almost 4 years when it first opened 10 years ago and some of the staff are the same as when she was there which I think is great for continuation and shows that the staff are happy in their roles.

I know that my son is being well cared for and is safe and happy and stimulated and can't wait to get to nursery on the days he attends.What more can you ask for from a nursery.

I have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to anyone looking for somewhere excellent to care for their child.

We have been connected with this wonderful nursery since 2010, and both my daughters have really enjoyed their time here. They have formed strong bonds with the wonderful, caring staff and I have always felt they are well looked after. The children are learning through play in the most wonderful settings, surrounded by the countryside and walking distance to the park. As a parent I feel well informed of how my child is doing at nursery, and there are events through the year which includes us parents, such as Christmas dinner, Otley carnival and summer BBQ. I would definitely recommend The Little Green Frog to anyone looking for childcare.
